Many Opednews.com readers know that Airman Keith Roberts (1968-74) is battling political forces allied with VA Sec. Jim Nicholson whose department worked with US Atty Stephen Biskupic to imprison this Vietnam-ear vet for 48 months on a ludicrous charge of wire fraud, now under appeal. 

Please contact Rep. Tammy Baldwin (now a member of the House Committee on the Judiciary) and urge her to seek all documents in this affair and ask Gonzales about Airman Roberts’ indictments.

201 E. Lincoln Trail Blvd.
Radcliff, KY 40160
