Drug smuggler turned data miner Hank Asher dies at 61 to help Satan expand hell for his cohorts

It is hard to feel sorry about Hank Asher's death. He is a former drug smugger who profited from Megan's Law by making data bases that let you know if your neighbor urinated behind a dumpster in 1971. No doubt, hell welcomes ts newest member. Here is a brief bio of Asher from Once Fallen:

#4: HANK ASHERHe is probably the one person on this list you've never heard of. Just who is Hank Asher? The short 
answer is he's a data miner and multi-millionaire.  He is a major behind the scenes supporter of Big 
Brother-type programs, and yes, he's the guy responsible for the MATRIX (the controversial government 
computer spy program, NOT the Keanu Reeves movie).


FORMER DRUG SMUGGLER: Asher admitted he was a cocaine smuggler in the 1980s,
though no charges were ever filed against him [23]

Multistate Anti-Terrorism Information Exchange (MATRIX), a controversial 
program that collected mass data on every individual in the USA, raising serious concerns
 about privacy and making innocent people suspect of terrorism [24]. Eventually the MATRIX was 
shut down [25].

THE TLFO AND MARK LUNSFORD: With the MATRIX gone, Asher had to do 
something with his data mining and the sex offender industry was generating big bucks, 
so it came as no surprise Asher began selling his data mining under the guise of
 "capturing pedophiles [26]." Asher hired the controversial Mark Lunsford to lobby for 
"tougher sex crime laws" which include his program [27].

Mike Carona's Curse: Two of the Dirty Ex-OC Sheriff's Tainted Benefactors Die Within Weeks At The Age Of 61

Asher: Onetime cocaine dealer gave secret gifts to Orange County's dirty sheriff
A former brazen Florida cocaine trafficker, who became an ultra-wealthy database guru that bought valuable gifts for corrupt Orange County sheriff-turned-convicted-felon Mike Carona, died Thursday or Friday, according to news reports.

The Palm Beach Post quickly handed Hank Asher, 61 and a high school dropout, a gushing hagiography by declaring him "an entrepreneur who pioneered the use of databases," "spent millions of his fortune fighting child pornography" and was "a national crime-fighting figure."

Somewhere, someone is making an Asher superhero costume, no?

Asher liked the Bible-thumping Carona--once a rising star in the California Republican Party, an Arnold Schwarzenegger confidant and a sheriff who eagerly accept bribes (cash, fine suits, casino chips, hotel rooms, illegal campaign contributions, booze--lots of booze, private jet rides and, yes, a boat).

Carona, who is serving a 66-month sentence in a Colorado federal prison, once arrogantly declared (before his arrest and while he served on a top-secretGeorge W. Bush national security task force) that investigating FBI and IRS agents had only found evidence of "the nigger money"--smaller sized bribes. 

Carona didn't know that his statements were secretly recorded by Don Haidl, a Rancho Cucamonga used car salesman, who illegally gave Carona more than $200,000 in 1998 to defeat Santa Ana Police Chief Paul Walters for the county's top cop job.

Haidl--a notorious chain smoker and booze guzzler with a penchant for communicating in streams of cuss words--was rewarded for the illegal contributions with a powerful assistant sheriff's job and, though he'd never taken a single police training class, full police powers in California.

He also got a county patrol car, one he later admitted in court that he used to impress his neighbors and friends.

(Jeffrey Rawitz, one of Carona's colorful, high-priced defense lawyers, died at the age of 46 shortly after enthusiastically attempting to discredit the case brought by Assistant United States Attorney Brett Sagel and his office partner, Ken Julian, who is now in private practice.)
While Carona sat atop California's second largest sheriff's department, Asher--who'd earlier in his life flown cocaine loaded planes from Central America to Florida--secretly bought dinner for him and Assistant Sheriff George Jaramillo and gave their wives diamond-studded gold Cartier watches worth more than $30,000.

During Carona's corruption trial inside the Ronald Reagan Federal Courthouse in Santa Ana, two sources told me that Asher also paid for the dirty sheriff's massive legal defense team. Confronted with the allegation, one the lawyers smiled, paused and said he couldn't speak on the record about the topic.

U.S. District Court Judge Andrew J. Guilford allowed Carona--who, as the OC Weekly proved with photographic evidence, liked to party with Las Vegas organized crime associates--to fly to Florida to visit Asher after his conviction but before he was ordered to surrender to U.S. marshals and the U.S. Bureau of Prisons.

Though he used his public office for corruption, Carona remains the recipient of a lucrative-taxpayer funded pension that deposits into his bank account more than $21,000 a month--even while he's in prison and for the rest of his life.

Arkansas State Sen. Missy Irvin looks to ban RSOs from State Parks

So, how often do you get to see a horse's face
AND a horse's ass in the same photo?
State Senator Missy Irvin is pandering to her constituents by trying to impose a park ban on level 3 & 4 registrants in her state. I guess with the cuts she proposed to spending on treatment of crime victims, I guess she wants to avoid looking like the big hypocrite and Teabagger she is. The bill she proposed IS HERE if you want to read it.
(KATV) Little Rock - A local lawmaker is working to restrict where sex offenders can go. State law currently restricts where they live and bans sex offender from entering a city swimming pool or play ground.

Thursday, Senator Missy Irvin gave an emotional account of what a family friend went through after being sexually abused. Senate Bill 12 hits close to home for her, but it wasn't her proposal. It was requested by the State Parks department to extend what is already law in municipalities to their parks.

Lynn Gilmore testified against the Bill. Lynn is a member of ATAT (Arkansas Time After Time) and currently serve as CEO of SOSEN. To read Lynn's blog, click here.

There are 52 family friendly state parks in the natural state where you can find just about any activity for your adventure level. Peter Brave goes to Pinnacle Mountain about 5 times a week for exercise. He says whether a child can accidentally walk off a cliff or fall into the wrong hands, a parent is the ultimate protector. "You have to be diligent as a parent or guardian. When you have the kids, I think it's your responsibility to keep an eye on them and make sure their out of harm's way."

He says a sex offender should not be able to interact with children, but is hesitant to see eye to eye with a bill prohibiting level 3 and 4 sex offenders from swimming pools and playgrounds in state parks for one issue he's uncertain about. "If it gives people the privilege to come up and ask for everyone's identity without any prompting, I have a problem with that."

Senator Missy Irvin says, "This will allow our State Park officials to tell them to leave."

Senator Irvin is the bill's sponsor. She says level 3 and 4 offenders have a higher tendency to repeat and they're regarded as more violent.

There is still a ways to go. The bill got unanimous approval from the Senate floor but it still needs to pass the House judiciary committee and the House. After that Governor Beebe will decide whether to sign it into law. Irvin adds, "This Bill and this effort kind of protect an impeccable reputation that Rangers have of providing a safe, fun and affordable place for families to come together and have a good vacation and experience."

Senator Irvin says it's also a way for park rangers to work close with law enforcement.

If it passes, it could go into effect immediately. Violating it would be a Class D felony.

Senator Irvin says a level four sex offender contacted her and said he disagreed with the bill.

NJ Sen. Bob Menendez can't catch a break

What a crazy past couple of months it has been for the senator for New Jersey. First, one of his interns was allegedly both an illegal immigrant and a registered sex offender (not that I have a problem with that, but the public blasted him for this. And now, he's under investigation for possible sexual solicitation with underage prostitutes offshore. Well, we will see how this plays out. Granted, he has not publicly pandered to victim industry advocates as much as some others, but he has been pro-sex offender law, including authoring a mandatory reporting law ("Caylee's Law"). We'll just have to wait and see how this plays out.

Emails show FBI investigating Sen. Bob Menendez for sleeping with underage Dominican prostitutes
Posted By David Martosko On 1:52 AM 01/25/2013

Documents published online for the first time Thursday indicate that the FBI opened an inquiry into New Jersey Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez on August 1, 2012, focusing on repeated trips he took to the Dominican Republic with longtime campaign contributor and Miami eye doctor Salomon Melgen. TheDC reported in November that Menendez purchased the service of prostitutes in that Caribbean nation at a series of alcohol-fueled sex parties.

The documents, which The Daily Caller had obtained hours earlier from an anonymous source, also indicate that Carrie Levine, research director at Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), was alerted on April 9, 2012 to Menendez’s habit of paying for sex while outside the United States. (RELATED: Read the tipster’s dossier on Sen. Menendez)

ABC News senior investigative producer Rhonda Schwartz was aware as early as May 2, 2012, the documents show, when Levine wrote a source in the Dominican Republic to say that she had “shared your allegations, but not your identities, with a respected, trusted journalist with whom we have worked on other stories.”

In another email two days later, Levine identified that journalist as one who “works for ABC News.” By May 16, Schwartz was emailing Levine’s original source with questions.

Information made available to Schwartz and Levine at that time included allegations that some of Menendez’s prostitutes were as young as 16. The source also alleged that Sen. Menendez was taking “non-authorized trips” to the Dominican Republic, suggesting that he may have been evading Senate Ethics committee rules covering disclosures when third parties pay for a senator’s travel. (RELATED: NRSC says Menendez may have broken Senate ethics rules, federal campaign finance laws)

Those rules require senators to secure approval from the committee before allowing a private person or company to provide transportation or lodging related to official business. But the Senate’s “gift rule database,” available online, contains nothing related to a Menendez visit to the Dominican Republic.

The rules also allow senators to accept free lodging or travel as gifts from friends. Those transactions must also be documented on an annual financial disclosure report, and approved in advance by Senate Ethics committee if the value is more than $335. Menendez’s disclosures since the mid-1990s, when he was a member of the House of Representatives, include no mention of such gifts.

On Sept. 11, 2012, the documents indicate, the same source who provided information to Levine and Schwartz also sent an FBI Special Agent in Miami what he described as “the testimony of one of the girls.”

“I have in my possession the original written in her own hand,” the source wrote. “She’s 19 now, but took part in private parties with Senator Menendez being only 16.”

That testimony-style interview was published online along with the other Menendez-related documents on Thursday.

Montana's SB 113 will allow even past false accusations to be used against you in future accusations

This bill will open the door to a variety of abuses  as cases where a person was found not guilty to be used as evidence. This is the opposite of rape shield laws, which already stack the deck against the accused. This is a very dumb and dangerous bill that will lead to many false convictions.

Prosecutors Seek a Bill That Allows Evidance of Other Crimes In Prosecution of Sexual Offenses

It's a bill that has been presented before involving sex offenders and their criminal history.

The bill seeks for prosecutors to be allowed to use criminal backgrounds of an alleged offender as evidence in new cases.

Prosecutors from all over Montana spoke in support of the bill that would crack down on repeated sexual offenders who perhaps were not found guilty the first time due to lack of evidence. 

Senator Andres Blewett says the bill protects vulnerable children and doing everything that can be done to protect them is what this bill seeks. 

Those that testified say passing this bill would make it easier for prosecutors to build up a case involving a child and a sexual offender. 

Prosecutors say the hardiest part of cases with children is the lack of testimony from the child. But senators are reluctant in passing the bill saying they worry about the creditability of the evidence that could be used.

New York Sex Crime Parole Officer busted for sex crime, and there is no picture of him ANYWHERE!

I hate nominations without pictures. How can I humiliate our Hardest Fall nominees when the media won't post a picture? Oh well. Still, this is the kind of story worthy of a Hardest Fall nod.

Former parole officer cops to kiddie porn charges

A onetime-senior state parole officer – who oversaw parole officers who supervised sex offenders – pleaded guilty on kiddie porn charges in Brooklyn federal court today, authorities said.
James Leone, 50, was arrested at his Long Island home in September after federal law enforcement agents searched his computer and found graphic photos and videos of children being abused, according to court documents.
Leone pleaded guilty to accessing child pornography with intent to view, confirmed Robert Nardoza, a spokesman for the US Attorney’s Office in Brooklyn.
He faces ten years in prison.
Before he became a parole officer, Leone worked as a New York City child abuse investigator, according to court documents.
The images Leone downloaded depicted girls ten or 12 years old being sexually abused by their parents and brother, according to court documents.
Leone remains in home detention on $500,000 bond, court documents and Nardoza said.
A woman who answered the phone at Leone’s home in Bethpage said he wasn’t there and said, “I don’t think he’s going to be talking to any reporters today.”
