Hope for one falsely accused...

From the desk of W.A.R.

Soon after an in-depth article appeared last fall in the Kansas City Star,  

Earnest Leap and his family realized they had the ear of a humanitarian legislator, Missouri State Representative Jim Neely (R-Cameron).

On Tuesday May 10, 2016 WAR converged at the Missouri State capitol where Representative Neely held a News Conference to announce a clemency initiative for Earnest Leap which he is pioneering with the support of a number of colleagues.

At the press conference, attended by Lieutenant Governor Peter Kinder, among other elected officials from both sides of the aisle Representative Neely invited Ernie Leap and his sons Brodie and Josh to speak.

At the end of the press conference the legislator and Leap family proceeded to walk the letter with numerous legislators’ endorsements to Governor Nixon’s office and presented it to his staff.

We believe this is the beginning of a powerful dialog for change in Missouri starting with a legislator who declared that what is being done to Ernie and his family is WRONG...!!!! And, he is taking action to make things right. We encourage you to contact Representative Jim Neely -- with thanks, appreciation and encouragement in this clemency campaign.
