Congressman Joe Sestak's Letter Supporting NASGA Member Holly Peffer
May 9, 2010
Mr. William E. Moschella
Assistant Attorney General for Office of Legislative Affairs
U.S. Department of Justice
950 Pennsylvania Ave., NW, Room 1145
Washington, DC 20530
Dear Mr. Moschella,
Enclosed please find a consent form from Ms. Holly Peffer. I enclose the
several documents that substantiate Ms. Peffer's present concerns. I
also enclose my letter to, and the response that I have received, from
the Department of Health and Human Services, Administration on
Aging. I reiterate here that my legislation on this critical matter of
elder abuse is directly on point to remedy the plight of questionable
guardianships, where an act of apparent compassion may mask greed.
Ms. Peffer's claim of miscarriage of justice resulted from the seemingly
irregular use of guardianship procedures to separate Ms. Peffer's mother
from her family. In this case, the procedures within the state of
Florida are at issue. For that reason, I am copying the Attorney General
of Florida with this present letter and its enclosures and asking that
the authority respond to my inquiry as well.
I ask that this matter be carefully reviewed within your department and
that I receive a response as to what measures might be taken to address
this issue in general and Ms. Peffer's concern specifically. I may be
reached at my district office, located at 600 North Jackson St., Media,
PA 19063. If you have any questions or concerns relating to this issue,
please call my District Representative, Anne Vaughan, at 610-892-8623.
Thank you kindly for your attention to this concern. I look forward to
hearing from you.
