Letter to U.S. Secret Service: 2/20/96

February 20, 1996
3801 Connecticut Ave., NW
Washington, DC  20008-4530

Philip C. Leadroot
Special Agent
U.S. Secret Service
Washington Field Office

Dear Mr. Leadroot:

The enclosed computer disc contains the text of a letter dated February 20, 1996 to the U.S. Secret Service.  The disc contains the texts of additional documents, previously submitted to the U.S. Secret Service, relating to the letter dated February 20, 1996.

Also enclosed are:

1.  Tape-recording of a telephone conversation with a former co-worker at Akin Gump, Mrs. Patricia A. McNeil.  The tape-recorded conversation includes statements relating to fears by employees at Akin Gump that I was potentially violent, and reports statements reportedly made by my former direct supervisor, Mrs. Christine Robertson, that I might be armed and homicidal.  Mrs. McNeil's statements as to her own beliefs and certain other employees are exculpatory as to my propensity for violence.

2.  Copy of City Paper article published in April 1993 re: civil rights problems at Akin Gump.  The article leads with an irrelevant reference to a close friend of President Clinton, Akin Gump partner Vernon Jordan.  The document is relevant to media handling of relatively insignificant civil rights issues at Akin Gump.

3.  Excerpt of newspaper article that appeared in the August 4, 1995 edition of The Washington Post (p. A1, p. A16) concerning a disbarment proceeding against a former Akin Gump attorney.  The article reports official determinations regarding Akin Gump's management style, which is termed inappropriately lax.

4.  Material relating to the professional background of Gertrude R. Ticho, M.D., the psychiatrist who, Akin Gump alleges, determined that I am paranoid and potentially violent.
