Rabbi Shea Harlig /Cantor Michael Segelstein /Rep. Shelley Berkley
Rabbi Shea Harlig has been doing everything in his power to support his friend - convicted sex offender, Cantor Michael Segelstein and discredit a rape surviovr. Segelstein is listed on the National Sex Offender registry in the state of Florida.Dear Rep. Berkley,
I was shocked and disappointed to see the video of Rabbi Harlig praying on the House Floor of Representatives. You know what he has been involved in during the last 5 years and still he is honored.
A civil lawsuit proceeded with a criminal conviction and all the victim has gotten is revictimization over and over again the past 5 years and Harlig has been at the helm driving this horrific experience even deeper into the depths of hell. Someone allowed a perpetrator to pray on the House Floor. Victims have been asking to speak on the House Floor for years.
When is it our turn?
When will we ever get justice within the court systems in the United States? Justice comes few and far between - like in Segelstein's conviction but justice must come every time for victims of sexual assault.
Giving Harlig the opportunity to pray on the House Floor was an insult to victims. Whoever orchestrated that fiasco should be ashamed of themselves. I would like to know who invited Harlig to pray and would also like to know a date when I could come and pray on the House Floor for victims of sexual assault by clergy. I look forward to your response.
