If former White House aide Rob Porter’s former wives had children with him, would they have confided to the FBI about his violence?
Many mothers are terrified that the fathers of their children will use their power, money and influence to “get even” and to continue their control over them. Women are terrified into silence with threats of losing custody of their children.
FACTs, Families Against Court Travesties, was created in 2002 when the Palm Beach County chapter of NOW (National Organization for Women) acted after receiving numerous calls from desperate mothers, including many battered wives. Too many family courts minimize domestic violence and child abuse, resulting in placing mothers and children in jeopardy.
Many fathers are aided by biased judges and court-appointed personnel lured by financial payoffs from these fathers.
Just as President Trump, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and Senator Orrin Hatch turned a blind eye to these accusations of violence, these judges choose to ignore the women who are coming forward at great risk to themselves and their families. This pervasive, soul-killing element in our culture must stop.
