WE DEMAND A CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION

THIS IS NOT "HARASSMENT". THIS IS SEXUAL ASSAULT AND SEXUAL BATTERY.

THE STATE ATTORNEYS OFFICE NEEDS TO REQUEST A SPECIAL PROSECUTOR BE ASSIGNED TO THIS CASE.

WHAT EFFORTS ARE BEING MADE TO REVIEW THE DECISIONS THIS PROSECUTOR MADE IN CONNECTION WITH PLEA OFFERS OR DECISIONS TO PROSECUTE BASED ON THE SEX OF THE DEFENDANT?

AS WE HAVE SAID IN THE PAST: THIS STINKS.

THE MIAMI HERALD REPORTS:
BY SUSANNAH A. NESMITH

Former Miami-Dade Assistant State Attorney Herbert E. Walker III resigned suddenly last week amid an investigation into complaints he sexually harassed at least five women in the office, according to documents released Friday.
At least two women accused Walker of touching them inappropriately and several said he would often comment on their appearances, saying they were ''sexy'' or even talking about specific physical attributes like their legs or breasts, according to complaints filed by the women.
The complaints were released by the state attorney's office in response to a public records request.
One woman complained that Walker told her she would be his girlfriend -- if it weren't for their working relationship -- then put his arm around her shoulders and touched her breast.
The woman said she moved away and he apologized, but that he did the same thing again at a later time.
Another woman said that Walker was so persistent in his advances she stopped wearing makeup to work ``so he would not look at her.''
''We don't tolerate any type of inappropriate behavior, whether it be sexual or issues of credibility,'' said Terry Chavez, the spokeswoman for the office.
Walker, who has been involved in several high-profile cases over the past few years, did not return a phone call seeking comment.
Several of the women said they were afraid to come forward, fearing Walker, a 10-year-veteran of the office, would retaliate against them. One woman said she didn't feel comfortable coming forward because ``he touches everybody.''
Another woman confronted him and told him she felt his comments were inappropriate. But three days later, he ran his fingers through her hair while the two were talking in a hallway.
Office management received the first complaint on Dec. 14 and, within a few days, the other women came forward.
Walker, an avowed evangelical Christian, also sent one woman an e-mail about Jesus and the Bible, and then called her into his office and insisted she view the e-mail message with him.
The woman, who is not a practicing Christian, told him she ``wasn't into it.''
''Mr. Walker then said that his supervisory duties kept him from telling me what he truly felt about that,'' the woman told her superiors at the office. Later that day, he came into her office, closed the door and told her she was ``sexy.''


Rumpole says, lets see if we've got this correct: lie about why you were fired, and you get fired and threatened with a bar complaint.

Sexually assault and batter employees and create an actively hostile work environment to the point where women are afraid to show up for work, and the State Attorneys Office allows you to resign with nary a peep?

What in the name of Watergate is going on over there? These people need some sexual harassment counseling from the Broward Judiciary. Even Judge Ross from North of the Border is laughing today at our State Attorney.

More later. We're just too fed up right now by the lack of accountability from Kathy Rundle and Don Horn to write anything else until we calm down.

Good grief. Why is anyone surprised that Rundle would cover this up?

I could tell you more about sexual harassment in that office, but come on, people, this is nothing new.

Why is it nobody remembers Janet's cover-up of John Hogan's involvement in the "hot suits" case?

The entire Reno/Rundle office has been an ethics cesspool since 1978.

It's time for a housecleaning, and it's time for Rundle to try to earn a living in the private sector. Jack Thompson

Dear Ms. Sankel:

This is my formal Bar complaint against Herbert E. Walker III on the basis of the below. I’m sure you can figure out what Rules he appears to have violated.

I can assure you that the Reno/Rundle State Attorney’s Office has for quite sometime been an ethics and sexual misconduct cesspool. I suggest you assign the case to Barnaby Min. He knows how bad it was and is there.

I solemnly affirm, under oath and under penalty of perjury, that the above facts are true and that it is a fact that the below has appeared in the Miami Herald on this day.

OK, let's get this straight......

1. The "Mills-Francis Four"--1 CLI fired, 3 ASAs or CLIs suspended because they did not object to the Judge's accepting charitable donations in exchange for dismissal of cases which would have been nolle prossed anyways. Never mind that those involved are greener than Kermit the Frog........

2. Tony Jiminez--fired because he allegedly lied about a plea he gave, then fired because he lied about the circumstances of his firing......

3. Herb Walker--allowed to resign despite MULTIPLE allegations that he sexually harassed several women and committed, at the very least, misdemeanor battery. Plus the "Christianity" e-mail. And the SAO keeps mum on the reason for his resignation.........

Sorry for the language, but even by SAO standards, this shit is really fucked up. Gotta agree with HR 110% on this one. And its time for a real candidate--no Al Milian or Leslie Rothenberg--to run against Rundle in 2008.

Anonymous said...

As I have said before numerous times, the allegations against Herb have been going on for a long time. Howard Pohl always turned the other way. I wonder why!!!!!! wink wink.

These rumors started a long time ago relating to female interns who worked under Herb. Some of these female interns asked for transfers based on not liking the workload in domestics, but the truth was that Herb was sexually assaulting them *(verbally and physically). However, the interns felt if they said anything they would not get a job at the office. I hope these interns who do work in the office or are no longer in contention for a job will speak up. I know some of these interns, as they ended up working for me.

Why would Brother Don not spank Brother Herb? Guilt or Brotherly Love?

If these allegations are proven to be true it will be a total disgrace and very disturbing; however, they are what they are, allegations. I find it amazing that most of the "hang em high" comments are more than likely authored by defense attorneys. Innocent until proven guilty unless you are an ASA hated by many for being religious, boastful, and self-righteous. I hope all of you possess flawless characteristics and you live your life blameless if not (as a previous post stated)what goes around comes around.

Another atheist agrees: Stop the Christain-bashing. Its too simple and cheap. Herb Walker is just a prick fuck. 364, not 366. He's got to do SOME time, Rump. And as part of his 3 yr probation sentence, he has to speak to at-risk youth once a week and has to start off with: "Hi, I'm Herb Walker and I committed sex crimes"...

Re: Formal Bar Complaint against Anonymous Poster at Justice Building Blog

Dear Ms. Sankel:

As you know, The Bar’s enforcement of Rule 4-8.4 (d) is such that lawyers can’t “disparage” other lawyers, even if doing so is not in the context of “practicing law” and even though such alleged disparagement does not impact a judicial proceeding.

The blogger, who may be a lawyer, is disparaging me on the basis that a) Mr. Walker claims to be a Christian and b) I in fact am one, having been born again in 1976.

Rule 4-8.4 (d) states that a lawyer may not disparage another on the basis of “religion.”

Either The Bar finds out who this person is who has disparaged me on the basis of my religion and disciplines him for that, or The Bar must drop its Rule 4-8.4 (d) prosecutions of me. If The Bar is going to be the “manners and speech police,” then it had better discharge those Orwellian functions equally and not in pursuit of equal protection-denying selective prosecution. You have two weeks.

I solemnly affirm, under penalty of perjury, that the foregoing facts are true, correct, and complete, so help me God. Jack Thompson

Mr. Thompson- re: your concern about the comment regarding you and Mr. Walker:

This is a blog- people are invited to make comments. Many of them are humorous or try to be humorous. You must realize that by your high publicity and volume of controversial postings, you are making yourself a target as it were for comments by our readers. The comment about you and Mr. Walker is patently ridiculous, and I seriously doubt anyone thought otherwise. Furthermore, I have no way of knowing who made that comment. It could have been one of the legion of non-lawyers who email me that they read the blog. Police Officers, clerks, support staff, and a group of rowdy CPAs at a downtown firm that send me lewd pictures in emails.

I have welcomed you to this blog, and given you plenty of space to post comments and pleadings in your case. I find your battle interesting and I support your right to be heard. However, you must recognize it comes with a price- people may make fun of you. Within the rules of this blog- I would not allow anyone to comment about your family or private life, or your personal habits or sexual preferences or your physical appearance-you may have to suffer the slings and arrows of what are admittedly in my personal opinion, silly and barely funny comments. My suggestion is that you concentrate on bigger battles. For instance, I think your bill to dissolve the Bar is pure genius. You have a flair for veiwing matters, and use innovative legal tactics. You have choosen a rough road to hoe, but I am sure you are confident in you beliefs and reasons behind your actions. Ignore the silly people and keep doing what you are doing. You know you always have a place here to say your piece, even if we disagree, as we have recently in private emails over your JQC complaint against Judge Mills Francis.

Peace out.

As to the "on LEO" aspect, ASA's are technically not LEO's but SAO Investigators under 27.255 are.

This is a real difficult situation for me. Reason is, Lorna Solomon is a bitch and so is Herb Walker. I do not know which side to defend. Shit, I will not take a side and use the shot gun approach.

Lorna Solomon - this woman thinks her shit doesn't stink and smells like Roses. Well Lorna, as I am told, your tush is not the only thing that stinks on your body. You are a two timing bitch. Just ask your ex-husband, who kinda screwed up his image by playing doboy for the Miami-Cuban nation.

Herbert Walker - lets see Mr. or Ms. Veggie. You not only are a real idiot, but you are pompous (with no reason to be), your trial skill suck, your personality is one of a mixture of Michael Jackson and Hillary Clinton, you try to impose your religious views on everyone, and you think that woman want to feed you grapes from in between their breasts and they really just want you to be buried 7 feet down under (or more).

I think a marriage of Lorna and Herb on the Titantic would be a wonderful movie and ending to this crap.

Now, KFR. Kathy, it is time for you to take your $3million and resign. Let Donnie boy run the show, so he can get crushed in the election. You have Kathleen and Howard running crap in felonies and why did Chet come back? Did you owe him something?

You are an insult to your office.

Ms. Rundle,

I have heard enough of Walker, he should have just been fired. How about the poor County Court ASA's and those waiting for bar admission? Why was the head of County Court not fired or suspended? Who is the head of County Court? Where does the buck not stop? If it does not stop at the top, then Ms. Rundle you are never to blame. Right?

Honesty is the best policy said...

Most things on this blog are accurate. Name five that have been false. The sex batt chief was a drug addict on prescription drugs. Herb is a "should be" sexual predator, so is Howard. Kathy is a bitch. Lorna does smell....

We can go back years and show you most are the truth.

How do I make a living? Not by posting at a blog.

The crack about me and Walker starting our firm together was based upon my being a Christian and his claiming to be. Not funny, in my opinion. You don't make fun of people's race, and you don't make fun of their religion. Excuse me, Rumpole, for not laughing.

The Bar, just so you all know, as if you cared, enforces Rule 4-8.4(d) if you say something truthful about a porn lawyer, and we're going to see if it enforces it in such a way that disparagement of Christians is acceptable.

Would I disparage Barnaby Min because he's Asian? Of course not. There is nothing in that status to disparage; nor is there anything to disparage about someone's faith. To the extent that Rumpole allows that, he encourages it, and such comments should be deleted, unless this is to be known as the Christian-bashing blog. Want to go for that, Rumpole?

I've had to spend much of this last year, since someone asked, defending myself from The Bar's SLAPP assaults on my ability to earn a living. You should see how much fun that is and how much time that takes.

Oh, and defeating porn lawyers in contempt proceedings takes some time, too.

God has blessed me richly in many ways, not the least of which is not having to call myself Kathy Rundle and be the corrupt hypocrite that she is, presiding over a cesspool of incompetence and sexual harassment while claiming to be a feminist.

Helping my wife beat cancer this year took sometime as well, but you wouldn't know and you wouldn't care, but thanks for asking, jerk.

Speaking of cancer, and what has afflicted the SAO since 1978, why is no one calling for Rundle's resignation? Let me be the first.

How do you not know what a SLAPP suit is? SLAPP is an acronym for strategic litigation against public participation. It is the growing technique of filing suits or actions against a whistleblower or activist to deter him from exercising his First Amendment rights. See Florida Statute 768.295.

This statute is just one reason why my suit against The Bar will be successful in state court.

"Yes, THE SEX BATT COMMENT WAS WRONG, but the person wasn't named, and how many chiefs of sex batt have their been since 1980- 10? 20? I felt it was sufficiently bland enough to let it up, but it was a close call." (EMPHASIS ADDED)
