From L to R Loretta Hottinger, Mayor Clinton Young, Judge Helen Blackwood and Reginald LaFayette
MOUNT VERNON DEMOCRATIC COMMITTEE 2ND VICE-CHAIRMAN RON DETRES (MASTER OF DIVISIVE TACTICS) , HUSBAND OF "PROFESSIONAL CORRUPT DEAL MAKER" LORETTA HOTTINGER
A complaint has been filed against Mount Vernon Corporation Counsel Loretta Hottinger with The United States Office of Special Counsel (OSC) for violating the Hatch Act of 1939. The Hatch Act restricts the political activity of individuals principally employed by state or local executive agencies and who work in connection with programs financed in whole or in part by federal loans or grants.
Mount Vernon Exposed has received confirmation that OSC has received the complaint and an investigatory file has been opened in the matter.
Hottinger is very familiar with the Hatch Act of 1939. On January 13th, 2010 notice of a complaint being filed against Councilman Steven Horton with OSC was brought to the attention of the Mount Vernon City Council. City Council members stated publicly that they were forwarding the complaint to the Corporation Counsel’s office. Councilman Horton has also stated publicly that the matter is in the hands of the Corporation Counsel’s office.
Question 14 on Form 13, the legal instrument used to file a complaint with OSC reads, “Does subject have knowledge of The Hatch Act?” The options available are Yes, No, and Not Sure. Yes was checked off as that was the appropriate response in Hottinger’s situation.
Hottinger is quite the political hack and is often referred to as a political prostitute. Hottinger also has been referred to as a ‘Professional Corrupt Deal Maker’ (CLICK HERE TO READ THE STORY ON LORETTA HOTTINGER AND RONALD DETRES ). Hottinger acting in concert with her husband Ronald Detres, have always tried to get Hottinger elected as a judge, even if it meant trampling over others and stabbing allies in the back. Detres is referred to as a ‘Master of Divisive Tactics’.
Detres made headlines last year when he, Kenneth Plummer, and Omar Boucher violently attacked Democratic District Leader Samuel l. Rivers at Democratic Headquarters in Mount Vernon. Detres, following advice from Kenneth Plummer subsequently filed a false police report in connection with this incident. Detres told the police office that Samuel L. Rivers was not a member of the Mount Vernon Democratic City Committee.
In addition to the many divisive tactics used by Detres, many in the political circles throughout New York State view Detres as untrustworthy, arrogant, and outright incompetent. His true arrogant self was displayed just last election season when Detres refused assistance from Mount Vernon Democratic City Committee 1st Vice Chairman and Election Commissioner Reginald LaFayette. LaFayette had offered to send a professional to assist Detres and others with the nominating petitions. Detres refused LaFayette’s help and as a result all four candidates were dropped from the Democratic Primary. Detres stated that LaFayette was the enemy as his reasoning for not accepting LaFayette’s help with the petitions.
Now Detres and others are now looking to “the enemy” for help in securing nominations for Hottinger. A group of citizens determined to get out the truth about Hottinger and her husband Detres, has set up a website (VISIT THE WEBSITE NOW) to inform the public about the corrupt and divisive practices of this creepy husband and wife duo. The NYS Supreme Court is no place for a scoundrel such a Hottinger.
Mount Vernon Exposed has also been informed that a massive letter writing campaign is under way in opposition of Loretta Hottinger’s candidacy for New York State Supreme Court. Every bar association and every local political organization will receive a letter along with supporting documentation detailing the corrupt activities of Loretta Hottinger. Taxpayers are encouraged to do the same.
