Roman Polanski Hires High-Powered Attorney Used by Former Congressman Rick Renzi

What does famed movie director and convicted pedophile Roman Polanski have in common with scandalous former Arizona Congressman Rick Renzi?

No, Renzi's never been accused of having sex with a 13-year-old at Jack Nicholson's house.

What the two have in common is that when they've faced intense legal heat, they've turned to the same attorney: Washington D.C.'s Reid Weingarten, whom Polanski added to his legal team this week.

When the Swiss government wanted to extradite Polanski to the United States on a 31-year-old fugitive warrant, he decided Weingarten was his man. Just as Renzi had when he got indicted on 35 federal charges in that land-swap deal.

Polanski directed classics like Rosemary's Baby and Chinatown and won an Academy Award for The Pianist a few years ago.

He was arrested in the Zurich airport last week and faces extradition to the States for  committing unlawful sex with a 13-year-old girl in 1977 (he pleaded guilty to the charge and fled to Europe as he awiting sentencing).

That is, unless new politically plugged-in super attorney Weingarten can get the dogs called off. He's reportedly close friends with U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, who may have something to say about whether Polanski's brought back.

Hiring Weingarten seemed to work for Renzi. The ex-congressman's yet to stand trial.

(Continued from previous article, posted one minute ago.)   The Cornwall Inquiry never set about to declare the falsely accused as innocent or to expunge their names from the public records. The Ottawa Sun news reported that when it was all over, the Cornwall Inquiry spent over $40 million Canadian dollars and produced over 60,000 pages of transcripts from 345 hearing dates and had 3,400 exhibits. Yet, none of it ever produced one shred of evidence against Father David Ostler that was worth investigation. Again, the only reason Father David Ostler's name came up was because a liar listed a string of names of civic leaders and clergy on an affidavit which later investigation showed to be highly unreliable. The accuser, Mr. Ron Leroux, admitted that he lied, out of a desire for revenge and because he was being coerced. Nevertheless, once a name is tarnished online, it remains that way forever. Official documents are seldom removed. And even if removed by the officials, they continue to exist within the blogs of hateful or misinformed people. Readers rarely search deeply enough to discover that there was no merit to the false allegations. Cyber-bullies hide behind false names as the manipulate information and fabricate lies. ---My name is Hans Ruygt, and I stand by what I say as absolutely true. Fr. David Ostler is innocent of the sordid claims a few spineless, disgusting people have made.

It only takes a few very angry and hateful people to destroy a person's online reputation as they attach the name of an innocent person to a sordid and horredous story like the one above so that their name shows up in internet searches. The cyber-bullies never go away or get silenced. The trash stays online forever. Reverend Father David Ostler in Sun City West, Arizona has been the long-term victim of several people who like typical cowards hide behind their fabricated screen names or who use the names of real people - people who would never say the garbage others attach to their innocent name. Such is the case with the comment below supposedly posted by "Mcyrnek" who is a very honest and decent person and who would never join in the vicious attacks on Fr. Ostler or on me. I don't know who these people really are, but people such as these have an axe to grind and are misdirecting their anger and manipulating information which they carelessly or maliciously fetch off the internet or fabricate. They allegations are absolutely false. In our society, people are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty, but in reality, some people judge others as guilty until proven innocent. Others readily believe the garbage they read if it suits their opinion. (--I, Hans Ruygt, will continue my comments in my next post because of the editor's rules about article size.)

It was a known fact that Volkswagen had threatened the life of both Mr. Brock and his family, why was this never investigated..?  Volkswagen had illegal surveillance on Mr. Brock's home and personal life yet this was never looked into, in-fact when Mr. Brock died the $70 Million Dollar class action discrimination lawsuit against Volkswagen the automaker faded away.  On the day of the alleged suicide Mr. Brock told friends he was selling his Audi because he just bought a Porsche.  Does this sound like someone suicidal to you..?
