  1. I hope they call some senators & congressman who will ask for our vote in november. This case requires a full congressional investigation from both juduciary comitees in the house & the senate. Senator Schumer is a leading member in the senate juduciary comitee. Nadler & weiner are same in the house.
    if only they care for the religous jews as much as they care for our votes Sholom Mordechei would have been out on Bail by now.
    the justice dept. and the attorney general are required to answer to congress, but if no questions are asked They do what they want. I herby ask all the askonim, please invite the politicans tonight, let them see how strong the community is united behind this inocent man. I also urge the askonim to get as much video footage as possible from the event and all the major movement around i.e. the parking, the croud coming in etc. etc. and we will be able to show that to the congressional leaders and their staff, I can tell you from my expiriance with dealing with them it will help. I explained it with more detail in yiddish at the following link
