Meet Alcee Hastings' Accuser

Winsome Packer with friends.
Congressman Alcee Hastings has been hit with a sexual harassment lawsuit filed by a conservative group called Judicial Watch.

Hastings
​The merits of the case aren't known, but the plaintiff is quite a serious person. Her name is Winsome Packer, a Republican who was a policy adviser on the Helsinki Commission when Hastings chaired it. 

A Jamaican-American, Packer is also the author of a novel titled A Personal Agenda, about the "alienation, hostility and impropriety she experienced as a newcomer to Capitol Hill," and she served as George W. Bush's appointee to the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women. And she's proficient in Portuguese too. Read about her here

The 74-year-old Hastings calls the case ludicrous. 

"I have never sexually harassed anyone," he said in a written statement. "In fact, I am insulted that these ludicrous allegations are being made against me. When all the facts are known in this case, the prevailing sentiment will be, 'How bizarre!' I will win this lawsuit. That is a certainty. In a race with a lie, the truth always wins. And when the truth comes to light and the personal agendas of my accusers are exposed, I will be vindicated." 

Nice touch incorporating the book title. Inside, see what Packer is alleging. 
From the Associated Press:

The conservative legal group Judicial Watch is representing Winsome Packer in her sexual harassment claim against Hastings, a Florida Democrat, and the Helsinki Commission that he chaired. Packer served as the commission's staff representative in Vienna and said much of the harassment occurred when Hastings was in Europe on business for the commission, which advises on U.S. policy about security, human rights and other issues involving Europe. 

Packer's suit, filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, said Hastings kept asking to stay at her apartment or get her to visit his hotel room, hugging her and making sexual comments including asking her what kind of underwear she was wearing.

Hastings, a 74-year-old serving his 10th term in the House, issued a written statement denying Packer's claims... 

Packer had been a Republican staffer on Capitol Hill, but lost her job after Democrats took control of Congress in the 2006 election. Her suit claimed that Hastings, who knew her through a friend of hers who worked in his office, invited her to apply to the commission but soon after her hiring made it clear he wanted a personal relationship.

Packer said she complained to her supervisors in Washington, the commission's counsel and aides to Sen. Ben Cardin, D-Md., the commission's co-chairman. Cardin spokeswoman Sue Walitski said she couldn't comment on the case. Packer also complained to the House Ethics Committee. The panel did not act on her complaint, and she resigned as, she said, she developed stress-related health problems.

"What happened to me was no secret," Packer said at a news conference at Judicial Watch headquarters. "I was let down by the commission and the Congress."

She also complained to Hastings' chief of staff, Fred Turner, according to the suit.

Gator -- here is a story that may show that your skepticism is well-founded

The intentional meddling of Judicial Watch brought about a situation that left the people of the State of Florida in dire circumstances. Without regard to a difference of laws of the several, independent, sovereign States of the Union, the lawyers (who should have understood what these differences would have meant) at Judicial Watch had called the people (of ALL of the States) to arms after the U.S. Supreme Court published an opinion in regards to the case of Kelo (v New London, Connecticut, et ux et al, 545 U.S. 469 (U.S. 2005)). After alarming the people, Judicial Watch assisted in convincing the people to amend their State Constitution -- as a protective measure. This amending process did not assist the people or protect any property rights, in Florida. As a matter of fact, the effect was exactly opposite of what the people had been told would happen. Instead of protecting a constitutionally recognized right, the people were greatly harmed, and a property right belonging to the people was unwittingly handed over to the State to do with as it chose.

A public/private relationship (with the State of Florida) already existed in Enterprise Florida (similar to one enjoyed by the quasi-public Florida Department of Citrus that, during the Bush reign, ran rampant and, with federal backing, had been given hundreds of millions of dollars and unconstitutionally permitted to trample the people’s rights in a war that had been designated “the citrus canker war”). Enterprise Florida had replaced the Department of Commerce sometime in 1996. A little later, the people amended their constitution, at art. X, sec. 19, Fla.Const., to recognize, as titled a “High Speed Ground Transportation System.” Among other power and authority, this 1999 amendment would have granted a private entity the right to issue bonds (in the name of the State) and the right to pursue acquisition of right-of-way, by eminent domain procedures. It seems that the State’s way of taking care of business was being reformed in an unnatural manner. With the demise of the Department of Commerce and transferral of certain responsibilities of the former Department to Enterprise Florida, privatization of the State’s business had begun in earnest. Installing the right of a private entity to carry on eminent domain proceedings caused the State to leap forward in its privatization scheme.

It was clear that the State had begun to exchange (with privileged entities) what had, on the whole, been in the public domain, and it was obvious that there had begun a classified transference of some of the State’s interests into private hands. Attention was drawn to the constitutional amendment that would have permitted a private entity to make the State indebted (through an accepted issuance of bonds) and to the unwarranted authority to process eminent domain takings. The 1999 amendment was clearly unconstitutional, because there were other parts of the State Constitution that had not been modified in order for the 1999 amendment to be made an unquestionable part of the State Constitution. Thus, in the State’s great wisdom, the people were given the opportunity to abolish that unconstitutional creature that had been constructed in 1999. In 2004, art. X, sec. 19, Fla.Const., was repealed, and the people would not have to concern themselves with a private entity taking property by eminent domain.

The people of Florida were spared a fight against a private entity exercising a power of eminent domain, in 2004. Even though a railway system for the State could be thought of as a remarkable way of transportation that would serve the people, the State should have protected the State’s right to be the only entity to exercise eminent domain proceedings (and to issue the bonds to pay for such proceedings). If, indeed, the State would have felt a real need existed for privatization of a mode of transportation, the least that the State could have done was explain the matter satisfactorily to the people, rather than burying it in the convoluted wording of a constitutional amendment -- with the explanation given in such a way that the people could not fathom the entirety and would not know about the giveaway. Regardless of the 2004 repeal of the 1999 amendment, a private entity exercising power and authority of eminent domain was reborn with a faux fight (presumably against such a maneuver) instigated by Judicial Watch, in 2005. And, in the same fashion as happened with the 1999 passage of the “High Speed Ground Transportation System,” the people would not be told that they would be giving a private entity the power of eminent domain. In fact, the people were actually lead to believe that voting for the amendment would prevent a private entity from any benefit or interest in the exercise of any control over a taking by eminent domain.

If it had not been for Judicial Watch, the people of Florida may not have been so frightened that they voted for an amendment that did exactly the opposite of what they believed the amendment to mean. Judicial Watch should not have let scare tactics be used (by those allowed to operate under the guise of Judicial Watch or otherwise) to manipulate the people. Since Judicial Watch started the drive to startle the people into a belief that their property could be taken by a condemnation proceeding where the property would be conveyed to a private entity, Judicial Watch had a responsibility to warn the States that this scenario could not happen in several of the States -- and that it would have been unnecessary for the people of these constitutionally protected States to alter their constitutions. There were eight States in which the State Constitutions would have prohibited that which had been formulated in the Kelo opinion, and Florida was one of those States. The lawyers at Judicial Watch would have known that the people of the State of Florida did not have to alter that which already protected them from any harm that could have occurred from a decision entered in the case of Kelo v New London, Connecticut (et ux et al -- since it was really a special district that had originally enjoined the property owners).

It is admitted that after the decision of Kelo had been entered (as case-law), there would be States that would have a need to amend their Constitutions and enact laws to prevent the unjust taking (through eminent domain proceedings) of the property belonging to the people, that could be transferred to a private entity, to which that corporate entity would be entitled or granted a specific allowance to make a profit on the property, bought by the State with the people’s own taxed dollars. However, Florida did not need to enact any laws to protect the people from overreaching eminent domain legislation, because the State Constitution had already prohibited the unjust taking (through eminent domain proceedings) of the private property of the people. So, under art. X, sec. 6(a) of the State’s Constitution, it would have been impossible for the State of Florida to use eminent domain proceedings to take property in order to give that property to a business-person or corporate-entity. It would have also been unconstitutional for a private entity to exercise any power or authority over eminent domain proceedings. The case-law of Kelo should have had and would have had NO effect whatsoever in the State of Florida -- so long as the State Constitution remained the same, and art X, sec. 6, Fla.Const., was not amended.

The two subsections ((a) & (b) of) art X, sec. 6, Fla.Const., had been in effect since the 1885 Florida Constitution had been revised in 1968. Subsection (a) of art. X, sec. 6, Fla.Const., completely protected the people from any outfall from the Kelo case, a case that had been heard by the U.S. Supreme Court, after the case had been appealed from a superior court in the State of Connecticut. Working towards the amending of art. X, sec. 6, Fla.Const., at the instruction of Judicial Watch, would not have benefited the people, as the people had been lead to believe. Judicial Watch should have recognized its folly in instructing the people of ALL of the States to amend their constitutions. In Florida, where a protection already existed (in the State’s Constitution) against the decision made in the Kelo case, the people greatly harmed themselves when making an unnecessary & baseless alteration to their State Constitution -- that is because the amending process has done the exact opposite of that which had been touted. Rather than benefit the people, the new 2006 subsection (c) to the section titled “Eminent Domain,” (located at art. X, sec. 6, Fla.Const.,) could only benefit an organization like Enterprise Florida or other type of public/private partnership that would take property, possessions, assets, goods, chattel, or anything of value from the people while making the people pay for the taking, through being taxed for the payment. The subsection with this novel bargaining arrangement could never have benefited any property owner who would have been abused in the taking. (In this situation, where you are forced to pay your own money for the supposed right of another person to take away what is yours, think about paying a rapist for his act of rape because the rapist had benefited & enjoyed the act over his newly acquired possession so much, that his new possession would need to pay for the sheer enjoyment that the possession must have experienced after he, and his accomplice, chose to acquire the possession above the other choices they could jointly rape, pillage, and plunder.)

Admittedly, the way that the situation is explained can seem vulgar at times. Additionally, it all sounds rather silly and very lopsided to imagine that a group like Judicial Watch could have mislead the people of the State of Florida in such a way that the people actually amended their constitution to enact a way for the State to do exactly what the people feared would be done without the amendment. But, that is what has happened in Florida. The people practically gave away their property right, when amending the State Constitution in a way that now permits the State to write laws where the State would be able to transfer the property taken of the people and put the purloined property into the hands of a private entity, that would benefit (at the expense of you, the taxpayer). The worst part of the scheme is that it has been made to look as though this is what the people have desired -- although the privatization factor is indeed gross.___________________

Btw -- the entity that was supposed to “redevelop” the 91 acre waterfront property in New London, Connecticut, taken by eminent domain (that has a yearly rental payment of one dollar per year), abandoned the “redevelopment project” and all of the land (that once had buildings, which had taxes paid by the owners) -- which land now stands empty, with no taxes being paid on the land, that is registered on the tax rolls as belonging to the possessions of the City of New London. This blunder (for just the purchase price of the properties and the bulldozing of the properties) has already cost the State of Connecticut and the City of New London $78 million -- and the costs are still being generated. When you figure in the loss of local taxes on the property and the loss of State taxes that the businesses used to collect and send in, the amount of the loss should rise at an exponential rate.

And, if that was not enough in the Karma department, the corporate entity of Pfizer, of which New London was jumping through hoops, closed its doors when it merged with another corporate entity. Pfizer shut down its plant in New London -- so there are no taxes from that corporation either. That also means that there is no way that the redevelopment (that was exclusively manufactured for the benefit of Pfizer and those employed at or enslaved by Pfizer) of a residential/business/retail mixed-use community will be built any time soon. You would think that New London should have had remedy & recourse through a lawsuit against Pfizer for Pfizer’s change of plans that left New London holding the bag on those demolished properties. Maybe this tale is enough to advise other States that it is not the corporate entity that is your best asset -- it is the people of the States alone that should be considered -- or else you can find yourself desolate, in debt, and close to destruction. However, there is doubt that this city, like other cities, has learned its lesson. I don’t think that New London is going to make things right with its citizens yet, because governmental entities still act like bought-and-paid-for ladies of the night. One day though, there will be a reckoning. There will be no under-the-table bidder for special services, and those (citizens) supporting such wh*r*sh activities will withdraw ALL support and possibly move as far away from the diseased entity as possible. Hopefully, the people have learned not to be manipulated anymore. If so, they will have the upper hand. They have to recognize and admit that they were sold a bill of goods, and that they have paid more than their share in the debacle, which should be paid back in some form or another.

The same can be said for we Floridians. Even though we never agreed to enter the schemes run on us, we have paid a pretty penny to keep the schemes running & enrich corrupt corporate entities (that turn around & pay-off city-county-district-State officials or other public servants). The citizens have been overcharged and are overtaxed. Some payments should never have been collected, due to the fact that the governmental entity had to realize that the tax, fee, or cost was unconstitutional and should never have been charged. Our tax dollars can only be spent on what is recognized in the State Constitution. (That is why vouchers can not be supported with school funds.) The State has been caught trying to privatize, and we, the people realize that there is work, underfoot, to alter the State Constitution to say what these corrupt b*st*rds want the Constitution to say -- so that they can use our property in the way that they see fit & collect even more money from us (as though we are servile to a thieving, cunning master). But, it has to stop. And, it can be stopped if the people can gather knowledge on the matters. Every one of us can work to inform others. If you know of any other story about how the State has become or is becoming corrupted, write about it and post it so that others can be knowledgeable of such schemes.

I've been litigating sex harassment cases for over 15 years now and this "claim" would be undoubtedly be dismissed on summary judgment in the Southern District of Florida. Not only was the alleged harassment very low grade (assuming it even occurred), but the alleged victim resigned, and she is not even close to having a constructive dicharge claim based on these facts. Sounds to me like the lawyers for Judicial Watch should be checking to see if they have malpractice coverage for this clearly frivolous politically-motivated lawsuit.

Judicial Watch? The same Judicial Watch that was formed to go after Clinton and was funded by Richard Mellon Scaife? The same Judicial Watch that that supported government intervention in the Terri Schiavo case and now represents Joe the Plumber? The same Judicial Watch that bills itself as a conservative organization and has named Obama as one of the nation's most corrupt officials?

Hard not be skeptical about this.

I found the same information (& the AP story does describe Judicial Watch as "conservative"). So some skepticism is warranted. Perhaps JW's "agenda" isn't so much to support a harassed woman as to expose congressional unwillingness to go after a black man who has firm backing from a reliable bloc of Democratic voters.

Winsome Packer didn't get very far complaining to the appropriate authorities; she found help elsewhere. Now that she's beginning to look like this decade's Anita Hill, the outrage of people who previously were unaware of the situation may outweigh the politics of her current principal defender.

This is very revealing. (Besides the siphoning of payments to his lawyer from the treasury through the artifice of employment,) it has not been since the Border’s incident, that Alcee has been accused of certain indiscretions. Do you think that he will find a way of avoiding any fallout, as happened in the past? Remember when he was impeached as a federal judge (back when that Louisiana Judge Nixon was impeached)? Well, the Louisiana Judge could never again “hold and enjoy any Office of honor, Trust or Profit under the United States,” under art I, sec. 3, cl. 7, U.S.Const., yet Alcee found a way around that prohibition of art. I sec. 3, cl. 7 U.S.Const., (so that he could become a congressman). Somehow, Alcee Hastings (who has been recognized as an impeached federal judge) had found something amiss with a particular hearing by a senate committee, rather than the full senate body demanded by the federal judge (Hastings) under his interpretation of art I, sec. 3, cl. 6, U.S.Const. (as jury trials had been denied, per art. III, sec. 2, cl. 3, U.S.Const.). It seems as though there had to be something there or else the law would have prevented the man from holding any federal office. Or -- does the congress police its membership in the same way as the Florida bar, where it is live-and-let-live?

Back in the day when Alcee was starting out, he was a real freedom fighter. He took on the City of Fort Lauderdale and tore the City’s vagrancy laws asunder, after a resident, home on leave (from the Vietnam war), was arrested for being a vagrant. However, it seems that he no longer has roots, and can not stand as he once did.

Today, old Alcee’s main source of comfort is the CHURCH and the churchgoers. When it is time for re-election, he stumps inside those churches like a man delivered. He can tear up a storm and get the people moving. There have been a few complaints about the way that he uses the churches, but that hasn’t stopped him. In this day and age, you would think that a man shouldn’t use the church in the way that these politicians do, but even the preachers have allowed testimony from the pulpit to be converted into electioneering slogans. What a mess!

And this from 2006.....\

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel had this to say about Alcee: “Personal and political paybacks are the first order of business for Hastings.” That’s because Hastings put his girlfriend, a disgraced former lawyer who was disbarred by the Florida Supreme Court for “multiple offenses,” on the public payroll as his “office liaison and staff assistant.” According to the Sentinel, Alcee Hastings owed her “more than $500,000 in legal fees for representing him during his 1983 bribery trial and his 1989 impeachment hearings before Congress.” Alcee Hastings continues to employ her to this day.

Alcee Hastings’ career seems to be filled with political corruption and scandal. The House Committee on Standards of Official Conduct is currently investigating Alcee Hastings for ethics violations. As if that weren’t bad enough, the disgraced former judge is also being investigated by the Florida Elections Commission and the Federal Election Commission for various charges of impropriety.

Remember that this guy took a trip to Ukraine to oversee the elections there, gives you a lot of confidence doesn't it?

Request a tour of the Capitol through Alcee Hasting's office. You meet at his office then go on the tour. It is a pretty nice freebie and you'll see and hear some things you wouldn't otherwise.

All his staffers are pretty attractive and young. It is clear he's a hound dog based upon the talent he keeps there.

oh please! if you act like a lollipop someone stupid is going to lick you.can't we have a discussion without hinting about how much you hate black people. those who voted for george wallace and strom thurman or richard brevard russell or any other civil war revisionist confederate, racist, treasonist needs to be quiet about the choices of others.actually its the "bitter folk" out in places in pennsylvania and ohio and the south who consistently vote against their own interests in every election. what made them think they had anything in commom with the rich corporatist familys like the bushes or any of these other bought out GOP politicians anyway? we blacks did not come here on our own free will. but we are here and we have a right to be here.it was pope clement in 1452 who when notified that the "seed of Jacob" having fled first the babylonians, syrians, persians and roman emperor, Titus were living in africa, who gave the order to the portugese and spaniards to enslave us and sell us to the brits and scotch-irish in the USA for slave labor and free sex, anyway.so get off our backs.god has said that anyone who persecutes us will be dealt with.

It was actually Pope Nicolas V issued the bull "Dum Diversas" (June 18, 1452) in response to a request from the Portuguese monarchy. King Alfonso V was conferred the right to "attack, conquer, and subjugate Saracens, Pagans and other enemies of Christ wherever they may be found." It gave title over all lands and possessions seized and permitted the Portuguese to take the inhabitants and consign them to perpetual slavery.

Allen West is excellent. That you don't even know if you voted for Hastings, who has been a disgrace for years now, indicates that you need to do more actual research on candidates.

What do you mean get a handle on gerrymandering? Your district is a classic case of that political affliction! It can't be that hard to drop a grid on a map, making reasonable adjustments for population density and letting the political chips fall where they may.
