     *    From July 24, 2017 on this site, “I SPOKE UP,” (click here for the original):   

         Jessica Padilla testified in this morning’s emergency hearing to enjoin Sheriff Reese from entering the Sheriff’s Office. Her federal lawsuit against Reese with the emails attached was introduced and she was asked if they were true and accurate. She said, “Yes.”
          She testified the emails were personal and sexual and all of them were specific to her. “He was thinking of me,” she testified.
         Asked about her reaction when she found out Reese might be returning to the office, she said she “freaked out. I couldn’t believe it. For me, it was like a slap in the face. We didn’t think he could come back.”
    She said she believed it would be “disruptive” if Reese returned and said “anything could happen.” Regarding herself, she said she feared possible retaliation because she said, “we are where we are today because I spoke up.”

         “They are some of the raunchiest emails you will ever read,” Philadelphia Attorney Joshua Voss told a Lancaster court in July about the emails former Sheriff Mark Reese sent to his employee, Jessica Padilla. He was working for State Senators Ryan Aument and Scott Martin trying to force Reese out of office.
         On Tuesday of this week, Jessica Padilla reached a court settlement with Reese in her sexual harassment lawsuit. Padilla’s attorney, Jared A. Jacobson, told me yesterday by phone that the settlement amount should be public information. I hope to have that later today.
          And, yes, they are the raunchiest emails you will ever read.
    Please check back later today.

    1. Wouldn’t it be something if all of those judges, DAs, prosecutors, etc etc be called out for exchanging those ugly porn emails?

      For so many reasons, it will never happen. Pennsylvania women are losing a perfect opportunity to demand disclosure of judges, prosecutors etc. names. These people hold the lives of Pa. women in their hands. To know what darkness and vileness lurk in the minds of men who prosecute and sentence them and decide if a rape is “rapy” enough to prosecute would be a powerful tool for women to force these same men to recuse themselves.

      I can’t think of a better moment for this to be exposed.

    2. PS and quite frankly I don’t understand why one of the larger mainstream media outlets don’t tackle this story.

      One would only have to look to see that Stedman’s hire of one of the identified email exchangers resulted in that same man’s firing to know that it is a serious enough situation that would unseat a lot of men who don’t deserve or belong in their jobs in the first place.

      Why is there no one addressing this? Why does the press just accept the new attorney general’s declaration of “case closed?”
