The former two-time congressman endured a four-year investigation with four grand juries, followed by an indictment and conviction by our own Department of Justice (DOJ) and Internal Revenue Service. He is now serving a 10-year prison sentence. Stockman has filed a compelling appeal showing his innocence with the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. All along, I have held the position that, if this ordeal could happen to Steve, it could happen to anyone who might speak out against the agenda of political correctness.
But a Washington Times article by Rebecca Hagelin about the Stockman case on August 8 has caused some to take a fresh look at Stockman’s case, especially in light of the renewed gun control push following the tragic shootings in El Paso and Dayton.
One reader asked after reading Hagelin’s article, “Why isn’t this known in the conservative community?”
There are several plausible answers to that question, but they are really more excuses than reasons. These include the fact that my husband was told along the way that he should not talk about the case.
