About ten days ago, I spoke with New Hampshire State Representative Al Baldassaro about the events surrounding the case of Gerard Beloin. I spoke to him mainly about a New Hampshire Executive Council meeting that Beloin attended and spoke at, but we also spoke about some of the background that surrounded Beloin's appearance there. Baldassaro has known Beloin for more than two years. It was back in 2007 when Gerard Beloin shared a series of recordings with Baldassaro. On these recordings, there are discussions of murder, conspiracy, extortion, kickbacks, arson, as well other crimes. Upon hearing the recordings and other background evidence that Beloin provided him, Baldassaro concluded that in fact there was criminal activity going on, or as he told me, "I don't think Gerard Beloin is crazy"
Gerard Beloin's saga begins about seven years ago. It ultimately comes down to this simple question: is Gerard Beloin crazy? If he is, then all that have ignored him so far are right. After all, he's crazy. If, however, he's not crazy and everything he's documented is accurate, then there's something very sinister going on in New Hampshire and it reaches as high as the office of Governor John Lynch. If, in fact, Gerard Beloin is not crazy, then the entire of political structure of New Hampshire is corrupt and what started as the cover up of a bad roof has turned into a cover up all the way to the governor's office.
Back in 2002, Gerard Beloin, a roofer, bid on a roofing project for Goffstown High School. Upon inspecting the roof, he discovered that the roof's structure was weak. The roof was made of a material called tectum. That material weakens with too much water and Beloin believed that after years of corrosion the roof could give way at any time. He shared his concerns with the school board's president, Dr. Craig Hieber. Dr. Hieber said he would share his concerns with the rest of the school board. A couple monts later Dr. Hieber died. Dr. Hieber was replaced on the school board by Kerry Steckowych, who was also the attorney for the city of Goffstown. Steckowych dismissed Beloin's concern and the school board gave the contract to a competing roofing company.
Beloin suspected something was rotten in Denmark and he suspected that Steckowych was involved. He took those concerns to the New Hampshire Attorney General's office. The chief investigator, Michael Bahan responded like this.
Steckowych is a close personal friend of mine. If Steckowych is involved, there is no crime.
Sometime after this the building next to his own place of business burnt down. The culmination of these events made Beloin fear for his life and he began recording conversations. It was these recordings that lead to the series of recordings I linked that included mentions of murder, arson, kickbacks, and extortion. He took the recordings to both the Attorney General's office and to the office of the Hillsborough County Prosecutor, Marguerite Wageling. Upon hearing the recordings, both those offices decided to prosecute Beloin for making recordings without the permission of the other party.
He's since been in court nearly three hundred times defending himself. No one else has ever been charged in the case let alone convicted. In fact, on numerous occasions judges have denied Beloin's request to play the recordings in question. Beloin has written regularly to the County Prosecutor's office, the Attorney General's office, the New Hampshire Executive Council, and the office of John Lynch, Governor of New Hampshire. He's also gone to every major newspaper and television station in the area. None have responded with any investigation. Lynch recently nominated Marguerite Wageling for a Superior Court Justice position.
Beloin presented himself at a meeting of the New Hampshire Executive Council to speak against this nomination. At this meeting, Beloin spoke against Wageling's nomination. In his view, her refusal to investigate the recordings and instead prosecute Beloin made her unfit to serve as a Judge. Beloin planned on playing eight recordings he had made over the years. He was only able to play one. Before he could play anymore Ray Burton, one of the council members, cut him off and terminated Beloin's testimony. Burton didn't respond to an email and voice mail. Another council member, Bev Hollingworth, told me that she believed that Beloin was given the same opportunity that all other speakers were. She also didn't see how these tapes were relevant to the nomination of Marguerite Wageling. Even Baldassaro, who believes that there is evidence of criminality in the tapes Beloin played for him, signed in support of Wageling at that meeting. (Baldassaro took Beloin's recordings to the New Hampshire Attorney General's office)
So, there's the saga of Gerard Beloin. It's pretty clear. Either, Beloin is paranoid and crazy and he's badgering government officials all over the place in a state of total paranoia. They are all ignoring him because there's simply nothing there. The only other possibility is that Beloin is not crazy. He discovered a bad roof that needed fixing. Instead of fixing it, the school board covered it up and gave the contract to someone else. Then, to cover this up, members of the school board and their allies began committing other crimes that included threats to Beloin's life. Then, when evidence of this was presented to all proper law enforcement, law enforcement covered that up and retaliated against Beloin. In that case, what Beloin has really uncovered is that the entire political, law enforcement, and judicial structure in New Hampshire is corrupt.
I must also be crazy but whenever I write about this case, links, especially to incriminating recordings, become corrupted. So, if any link doesn't work, let me know.
