Always the victim, Consentino demands State resources to attack his critics. What about the REAL victim here? Not only the woman but the public.....

ATKINSON — An investigation continues into the distribution of details of a human rights complaint and confidential settlement involving Selectman Phil Consentino.
Consentino also was the town’s longtime police chief until he was dismissed in February 2013.
Both during and after his campaign, Consentino was the target of an anonymous, three-page letter that was widely distributed.
It listed 23 separate complaints about Consentino for behavior that allegedly occurred while he was police chief and elderly affairs director.
The Attorney General’s Office is investigating the case from two angles, Associate Attorney General Jane Young said Tuesday.
“We’re looking at the specific facts of this, including whether there was any criminal act in the distribution,” Young said. “We’re also looking at the authenticity of the document.”
No further information on the investigation is available, Young said.
Consentino declined to comment on the case yesterday, saying matters were “in the lawyers’ hands.”
“They’re working on it and I’m just letting things set,” Consentino said. “That’s what they get paid for.”
Town Administrator Bill Innes said there are no issues with Consentino’s role as selectman.
“He can do what he has to do as a selectman,” Innes said.
Consentino was terminated as chief and elderly affairs director last year “for cause.” Officials have not disclosed why and Consentino was questioned by citizens about the dismissal during his campaign.
Last year, police dispatcher Lynne Cunningham filed a complaint against the town with the New Hampshire Commission for Human Rights. The details of that complaint are sealed. Cunningham and the town settled out of court for $50,000.
Innes declined comment on the investigation.
Joni Esperian, executive director of the N.H. Commission for Human Rights, said she couldn’t comment.
“For cases that aren’t public, and public cases are cases where cause has been found, this commission can’t comment on whether any case exists here, according to our statutes and regulatory framework,” Esperian said.
Copies of the anonymous letter were both mailed and simply left in residents’ mailboxes. But the U.S. Postal Service is not investigating.
“We’re not aware of any investigation going on at this time,” said Maureen Marion, spokeswoman for the Northeast USPS.
The mailings went to people’s homes, town employees and senior citizens he knew when he was the town’s elderly affairs director, both in stamped, anonymously sent mail postmarked in Boston and handouts dropped in their mailboxes and at homes.
Earlier this spring, Consentino said he discussed the matter with Esperian, who assured him that neither commissioners nor her staff released the information.
He also said he knew who distributed the information in town, because their actions were witnessed by others, but he wouldn’t identify them.

If this is another expense to the Town then it's got to be the last straw. If he gets away with this one we will all have to give up.

Of course it's an expense to the town, he's in charge thanks to the stupid amongst you.

I thought the case against the Conman wasn't to be revealed as to the amount given the person and the name of that same person. Who revealed this info and why is a good question is it not?. I bet the Conman is behind it,at least in some obscure and hidden way wouldn't you think? Why is this pervert bothering the state officials when he was found to be at fault to have lost his police position. In the over all this twit has cost the town the ultimate in embarrassment and monetary costs to the towns people since he has been involved in all that he done with people places and things that could have been avoided if he were the "man" he claims to be .It is to bad the mental hospitals are few and between when it comes to cures or life time commitments of mental problems. YES!! he deserves the same opportunity as any others that has done the same things he has done and even those who have done more serious things and hurtful activities that are against the common well being of all in every day society. All one has to do is see and acknowledge the recent news that has caused so many deaths across the country due to mental problems. Election time is coming and that should be interesting as to its out come as concerns the Conman and his position as a selectman.

The more they try to squash th is sex scandal the more they publicize it. A lot of voters can read between the lines when it comes to sex offenses.

Atkinson is a town eating itself from within. A very hurt and humiliated community.

The old pervert. You know he has got no soul. He goes on TV and doesn't give a damn about the reputation or health of the town. I never saw a smaller man. Except for the even smaller town officials who defend this preditor and lap up his residue.

Imagine your employer 70 or so ugly smelling of garlic snaps his fingers and waves you over to elevate his gherkin

think about it happening every day at work for 5 years Cruel and unusual

Water boarding at Atkinson Police station would have softened up shut up the girl who sued and won

Yo You can still water board harass intimidate the young in town Dozens of felines at the Kimbal Library waiting for love wagging their little lamb tails smacking with anticipation

Sigh

Town of Atkinson can afford to pay damages from the gold mine of my tax assessment Selectmen already shoveled cash to the Legal Line to protect for selectman and police appetites

Whew I am so glad I get to pay for sex crimes by owning a home in Atkinson

Anonymous said...

I agree with 9:58 when he says the town is eating itself from within and that this we are hurrt and humiliated.

I think that a half dozen strong respected men could change this by demanding his resignation in public. These men need to be new to town squabbles so they are not tainted by past politics. What does your wife and daughters think as we sit and do nothing? What kind of example are we setting for young men?

Those hate filled swill sheets created by the queen of hate has done nothing but further expose the

To 8:41 - I have a problems this. I am tired of you coming on here and calling anyone a hater while you are slandering others, calling others lyers, lowlifes. Just who the hell do you think you are?
BTW, I also plainly see that you are a big hypocrit and the angriest person here. Go deal with your problem, get some help for your failure to share the outrage society feels for this larest scandal in town. Slander will not found since the accusations are true. Many of the incidents happened in public and witnessed. Atkinsonians are disgusted with the actions of this man and don't stand with you or him. There has been barely a cry out in his defense by anyone except a few. It was a shame this problem didn't play out in public from the start as it should have.

To perverts and boot lickers

"Ezekiel 25:17. The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who in the name of charity and good will shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness. For he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger on those who have attempted to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is The Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

He was a police officer and supervisor and past elected offiicial. He was fired, did not defend himself when he had the opportunity. There is no more to be said in his defense, he has none and needs to resign.

The town allows the wife of the perp to share the job and desk of the victim. What measures are in place to protect the victim from unexpected germs, monitoring or other harm that might be introduced? It's a hositle environment.

Anonymous said...

Dangerous environment here. Too many "happy endings" for years. Both the Police building and Town hall need emergency spermicidal cleaning of possible aids infected tbathrooms, chairs, desks, offices, ladies room and most important ....all rugs. Rugs hide germs and I hear there is a good rug cleaning guy who would love to do the whole job , gather all the evidence and evacuate it harmlessly into the pond in front of town hall. The TA can put this emergency spermicidal evidence cleaning on the agenda for Monday night and even fund it with the brand new super slush fund....the all new wonderful vote buying corruption erupting sin sinfully fun....Senior Fund.

Anonymous said...

Consentino violated the ethics ordinance big time when he, as selectman, discussed and voted on the town senior trust fund changes and by proposing they operate as one fund. They aren't one fund and this ship of fools don't understand the concept of conflict of interest when it hits them on the head. He runs a private charity that competes with the town charity. Moreover, they can't remove funds without the trustee's permission. Emergencies are not new furnaces for anyone over 60 who needs one. This money should go to those who show a financial need, not based on the buddy system.

they know exactly who did this slandering and there planning on going after them pretty hard too. Good luck to them. I do that they read this blog. Puuurrrfect hiding place..

Stripped of a podium job at deliberative. What to do but attemp to threaten the very best people of Atkinson by calling them names.

The true "haters" are people at town hall who act like they are above the law. And that includes employee harassment.

The issue is not people knowing about a sex scandal. The conundrum occurs when a sex offense is covered up and not dealt with in open court and the guilty added to the online sex registry.

Anonymous said...

Ferris the drop out - what's your opinnion worth? Nothing. If they knew who released the report, they would have fired them and arrested them. Only someone with access to the complaint such as law enforcement, state or local government had access. Maybe it was a dishonest cop. This stuff gets passed around everyday when the perp is so hated.

Anonymous said...

He said he knows who did it because their actions were witnessed by others.

Hmmmmmm. That's hearsay unless the person comes forward and makes the accusation. Consentino by his own words has no personal knowledge of anything.

Anonymous said...

Maybe it is time to admit that a slim majority of Gimme Guys and Gals have, by kissing Consentino's pervert ass for free stuff, made the Town of Atkinson into a cartoon.
Not my doing by any means.
I just sit back and watch Consentino pull the switch into self-destruct mode.
The same pervert urges that cost him his beloved "Chief" position (did we forget that) will propel him into another scrape sooner or later.
How long has he beed abusing women in your cartoon village?
This didn't just start last year. The Pervert must have a long line of victims.
Its just sad that Atkinson has a few more low-life voters out for themselves than their town.

"Truth is not slander"

Your not going to find truth here, Bill -- most everything is made up..
I"ve seen incidents involving PC and the haters that are described here and is far from the truth about really happened and what I saw. The spin is amazing

The haters behave badly....seen it over and over---rude-- disruptive at meetings , and plain nasty when they don't get their own way...

Not everything black and white --- lots of gray----We are all human beings--some of us are better at it than others..

the handful of disenfranchaised that use this blog to vent with each other do not remotely reflect
the views of the vast majority of citizens (called brown nosers here)

It's hard to take 8:41 seriously when he is such a hypocrit and a name caller. You will never be right with this attitude.

Consentino is rude and disruptive at meetings, snapping his fingers at people and ordering them out of the room is deplorable behavior for a person who is supposed to represent this town. He is a disgrace to us and I don't care how a resident acts in a meeting, what I care about is the response of the elected official.

I remember being at a deliberative session while Phil threw spitballs at a speaker. Didn't see any haters behaving like that. Only thing I regret I watched and did nothing.
Now is the time to throw him out of power.

Bill, I saw him do it at candidates night to Mrs. Grant and I said nothing. Others noticed and rolled their eyes but said nothing. That's assault and who know what these targets were exposed to.
It was the first year Mr. Friel ran against Mrs. Tobin and I wanted to listen, I never went back.

We need to change the culture by calling him on these things when they happen. I think that's why residents have a camera in their faces now, document everything.

It's sad that a man that has done a lot for this town has been way out of control over the last decade. Power does this to most.
This town is full of great people and I feel bad about the people working for the town. They are between a rock and a hard place and most do care.
They as well as US have to get on the same tracks to derail the BS that has and still goes on here. There is still a lot of "takers" but we should be able to overcome this.
BTW I am not a hater, just know the difference between right and wrong.

There are lots of nice people working for the Town and some good volunteers as well. We don't need this and we don't deserve this, too many people have been hurt. I say we need to push for his resignation openly. The Towns people of Wolfboro were able to get rid of the Police Commissioner over a negative comment he made, why can't we? National news coverage is a big part of the answer.

Notice that Phil is NOT saying he did not DO what is described in the complaint.

He is upset that people FOUND OUT!

Isn't that always his favorite defense? Seek and find and punish those who dared to expose his crimes.

I read the complaint it the unbiased truth has been blogged about here. It was disgusting what our neighbor was subjected to at work, as a town employee. He did not fight the allegation and was fired, never to be a town employee again, yet people who didnt know, voted for him.

A Saudi blogger is facing ten years jail, a thousand lashes and a million riyal fine for 'insulting Islam'.

Raif Badawi originally faced seven years jail and 600 lashes, but an appeal court overturned that sentence and ordered a retrial.

Badawi was arrested in June 2012 and charged with cyber crime


be very careful.. nobody wants 1,000 lashes!!! And who has a million riyal to blow??

Good thing this is not Saudi.

What happened to the eight page complaint some of you have read?
How did Mark and Ed get their hands on it ..There has been some unbelievable accusations made in this blog ---all I want is the truth- just give me some truth.

Anonymous said...

The truth is the State is looking into how this got out in public, so it is real.

The truth is, no one has denied any of the allegations in the complaint, so it must be real.

The conclusion is, the accusations though unbelievable but must be true.

Anonymous said...

The truth is your beloved hero from the Lions Club tortured a town employee for many years while officers and town officials looked the other way. But you seem to be one of them too--a direct defender. Is this not true? Are you one of he worst Atkinson has ever spawned?

So you say you want the truth? Really! Then march your diminutive frame down to the Atkinson Police Station. Ask out pretty Dispatcher who was the victim of his sexual harrashment to lunch at Eggies. Ask for the sordid details of the years and years of callous, insensitive, humiliating sexual harrashment while she was trying to do her job. You will learn about the particularly abnormal, repulsive and obsessive sex abuse she suffered. Summarily post the gritty details on this blog to confirm the truth along with your personal apology for years of deception, hatred, and support of abuse.

Finish your happy conversion to integrity by going before the sitting Board of Selectmen and demanding on ACTtv the resignation of the sitting sex deviant along with all board supporters including the heavily compromised Town Administrator.

If it got out in public then how did some see it and now its gone.

If I cannot see specifically what the complaint was then I'd have to believe what a bunch of haters with an agenda want me to believe and thats not going to happen ---

All I want is the truth --- not hatespeech by the Atkinson Anarchists---

Again if the compliant was sealed,
where did the Vampire, Ed Naile --
read it?

Is this unreasonable? All I want is the truth?

Do you apply the same lack of logic to religious beleifs, assuming you have some? Do you also apply the same requirement of proof that man walked on the moon, that you have DNA or that your wife is faithful?

You are not entitled to read the docuemnt, those who have seen it have decided not to allow it to be further distributed to protect the innocent. Enough people saw it to invoke the AG to investigate.

What the heck is it you need to know that you think is you right to know?

I was always of the opinion that those in any voted into official office or other position were accountable to all people whether they voted that individual into their position were to do the "peoples" work ,not their own self serving selfishness. I guess I were misinformed about doing the best for those that voted them into office. Oh well!!

Anonymous said...

To 8:13 You were right in thinking
the elected officials took an oath to uphold the rules of their office and that is the way this town had run for many years. it was the only way it could be run for the good of the people that voted. I'm sorry to say that this no longer holds true in this administration. Kudos to the very few that will dare to tell the truth. Most people would not know the truth if it hit them up the side of the head. The truth has got out and no one seems to care.
How can they deny what has been proven? I don't understand and agree "Oh Well"

Anonymous said...

"Oh well!!" was meant to get your attention to what was said but mostly to say we or I can't do any thing about it until election time. As an added incentive why not look at the land and business real estate taxes given to the few in town that are friends with the gang running the town. It could be interesting to see if they are paying their fair share wouldn't it? "Oh well", before I go for now I'll just say to you that I have to go off to work to pay my share of taxes.

To wait until election day to see what happens is stupid. This is the time to prepare and seek out better candidates or run yourself. This is the time to get the word out.

7:47, Every one who could and should do any thing now are in town hall as the towns peoples reps. They took oaths to do the job[s] they have and have failed to do that up to now. That is why I said wait until election day and to tell others to vote wisely and spread the word before then to get them out of their positions.

7:47, If you can ask me to run for a town position then I can ask you the same question asking you to run for office. I work for a living and I'm tied up in other things.Thanks for asking me to run but I am not able to at this time. Are you able to to do it?

I also work full time and volunteer in Town. Waiting for others to do things is the lazy way out. More people need to get involved and find the time, even for one term.
