A fine kettle of fish, indeed. My Goodness! Why All the sudden Interest? Something fishy is going on!

For two years, no one in the media wanted to cover the Grazzini-Rucki divorce and custody case. Even when the political frenzy began last year because Grazzini-Rucki attorney, Michelle MacDonald, ran for Minnesota Supreme Court, no one wanted to give any mention to this story. No one cared about the girls, or any of the other, always unmentioned, children. It’s family law, they’d say. No one cares, they’d say. When it comes to our criminal justice system and the family law system, the family law system always usurps the authority of the criminal justice system. If you ask the police to intervene in a family law matter, the general response from the police is, “That’s a domestic (relations case). We don’t get involved.” I could go deep into that boondoggle, but I won’t right now. That would be an entire article, in and of itself, and best left to another day! Today we need to look at the “who, what, why, where, and how”, of this curious turn of events, in terms of political interest and real truth. Continue Reading:



Hook, Line, and Sinker?

Fish On A Hook by Stoonn

Well, that was fast.  We caught the attention of Steve Timmer from LeftMN.  Progressives can’t help but take the bait, especially when a light is shining where they don’t want it to.  For those of you in Family Court, fighting for your children, this phenomenon works the same way there.  Your “detractor” will shine their spotlight on you so that it cannot shine on the real problem, them.  Shine your light on them!  Eventually, they will expose themselves!

There is yet another update in the Grazzini-Rucki Family Court case from Michael Brodkorb:

Attorneys: Grand Jury Should Investigate Case of Missing Lakeville Sisters

Brodkorb leaves a lot out of his stories to serve his own self interests, but in the end, may be the one who assists people in getting the truth out about the inner workings of our corrupt Family Court System in Minnesota, where money flows, and families and assets are seized, on a daily basis.

Would Sandra Grazzini-Rucki want a Grand Jury convened?  I have not asked her and so I cannot put words in her mouth, but what I will tell you is that anyone who supports Sandra Grazzini-Rucki and her daughters, Samantha and Gianna, want nothing but the truth to come to light.  If a Grand Jury is the way to finally shine the light on EVERYTHING that happened in the Grazzini-Rucki case, then so be it.

Reunification Therapy and Blurring the Lines

Here we are. Back to the topic of Family court again. Why do so many families have to suffer like this? Why are parents treated like criminals?

I found something curious about “Reunification Therapy” online. It is from Connecticut, but that doesn’t matter. Because of the Uniform Law Commission these little revenue streams have infected every aspect of our Family Courts, not only in every state in our nation, but throughout the globe.  Parents are suffering in America (and beyond) in every state in the nation, all because somebody’s pal or colleague has an idea how to “help” families going through the family court system.

Once again, I have to thank Michael Brodkorb and Steve Timmer for their uncanny ability to give me timely topics for the blog.  There are numerous stories to cover and so little time to post, and Red Herring Alert Blog often has to choose what is important and doable in any given day, but since Brodkorb and Timmer think they are “on to something” with this video of a bug, Michelle MacDonald, Dede Evavold, Sandra Grazzini-Rucki and Deanna Fogerty, and the fact that Dede just had multiple law enforcement agencies raid her home over the Grazzini-Rucki arrest, I just cannot resist informing readers about Deanna Fogarty’s story.

Fox 9 News Report on Sandra “Sam” Grazzini Rucki custody case.


Nothing like a “no-knock” warrant to spice up your life! Coming home to 5 detectives, a US marshal, and a police officer already in your house is a bit unsettling. Having your electronics and documents taken is also unnerving. I can’t say I wasn’t expecting it, but one can never really prepare for it. Many of Sandra Grazzini-Rucki’s friends have been harassed and/or had searches conducted in their homes.

 Mortgage Fraud Click to Zoom

Excerpts from letter to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development  and the Department of Commerce – October 9, 2013

Documents will show several illicit activities perpetuated by individuals and groups seeking to launder funds via residential property transactions.

The alleged frauds employed will show a scheme used to secure money by mortgage stacking, title washing and foreclosure fraud by David Rucki, Robert Shingledecker, Strawbill Strategic Inc., Attorney Lisa Elliot, Jacob Sellers, NJD Properties, LLC and Danmark Properties, LLC

The home at 19675 Ireland Place, Lakeville, Minnesota is titled to Sandra Grazzini-Racki, the former spouse of David Rucki.

David Ruchi and his attorney Lisa Elliot represented the estate in the foreclosure action. In 2012 and 2013 the defendants are alleged to have illegally washed the title of the Ireland Place property of the original motgage to make a new dollar mortgage obtained in the name of the above identified individuals and compaanies.  Proceeds of the stacked mortgage flowed into accounts controlled by David Rucki and other numerous parties, leads back to David Rucki and his attorney Lisa Elliot. This property is and has been in foreclosure (and foreclosed on), for sale (and sold 3 different times) in sheriff’s sale (and sold through sheriff’s sale) 7 different times in the lasr 10 months.

Cruel and Unusual Punishment


Sandra Grazzini-Rucki

A hearing was held on 12-7-15 for Sandra Grazzini-Rucki. Pre-trial is scheduled for 2-24-16 with a jury trial scheduled for the week of 3-07-16. Sandra waived her right to a speedy trial.

Sandra was initially charged with 3 felony counts of deprivation of parental rights. Three additional charges were added after the discovery of her daughters Samantha and Gianna in November 2015. Sandra Grazzini-Rucki now faces six felony counts of deprivation of parental rights.

The county is seeking an aggravated sentence against her, saying the girls’ father has been caused “particular cruelty” for being deprived of the girls for two years. Assistant Dakota County Attorney Kathryn Keena wrote in a notice to the court filed last week that David Rucki has “suffered extreme emotional pain beyond what is normal for this crime.”

Doesn’t this whole case seem to be “beyond what is normal” and the crime  pinned on the wrong parent? The “particular cruelty” would seem to be what the Rucki children and Sandra have suffered due to the abuse, not only by David Rucki, but by all the court players as well. The million dollar bail (now reduced to half a million) and the post bond conditions appear disproportionate to the alleged conduct of protecting children from violence.

MN Rogue Psychologists/Therapists

“Parental Alienation Syndrome”

Rogue Psychologists/Therapists such as Paul Reitman, James Gilbertson, and others have been allowed to “infiltrate the family courts” via the Social Early Neutral Evaluation (SENE) roster to overlay what is by its very nature an unsubstantiated “bogus diagnosis” on what cannot be diagnosed. One cannot diagnose a good parent or use a diagnosis to determine or deny a parent custody.  Because even if some mental illness exists, under the Civil Rights Act that parents cannot be discriminated against on the basis of some real or perceived mental disability.  The big problem currently in MN is Parental Alienation Syndrome-PAS which is tantamount to Voodoo, yet our courts even at the appellate level seem to embrace PAS. Educating our courts about the true nature of PAS and to reject such “PAS-voodoo” is essential. Kim Bukstein, MN Civil Rights Advocate      

A SENE is  a voluntary process parents may choose to participate in when they disagree about custody or parenting issues. The ENE is used in divorce cases as well as in custody cases, and can also be used for post-decree disputes. It is an alternative dispute resolution process similar to mediation.

Paul Reitman
Forensic and Clinical Psychologist

Below are excerpts from a complaint filed by Civil Rights Advocate Kim Bukstein on Psychologist Paul Reitman to the Board of Psychology in the Grazzini-Rucki case..

Also included is the Agreement for Corrective Action by the Board of Psychology from a complainant in a separate post-dissolution custody dispute in 2011.

A Brief History in Sandra-Grazzini-Rucki’s Case with Regard to Parental Alienation Syndrome (PAS) Psychologist Paul Reitman

In 2012 Dr. Paul Reitman forced the mother-Sandra Grazzni-Rucki to sign a consent form by threatening to “take her children” before any assessment occurred. Therefore Paul Reitman was engaged in professional misconduct from the start, by coercing the mother to sign his consent form under threat to the mother’s custody of her children. This also indicates PAS Psychologist Paul  Reitman’s intent was predetermined and he planned to target and falsely accuse the mother of PAS.

At this one and only visit, PAS Psychologist Paul Reitman met with Sandra Grazzini-Rucki and four of her five children for less than 30 minutes. Dr. Reitman asked the children but one question “how’s school” and all said “fine: Paul Reitman conducted no scientific evaluations, tests, or analysis.

Then based on that single meeting, Paul Reitman, without the mothers or her attorney’s knowledge and without her consent, issued an ex-parte report to the court accusing the mother of Parental Alienation Syndrome (PAS). and as a result of Paul Reitman’s report, the Court issued an Ex-Parte Order on 9/7/2012; See EXHIBIT B.

This Ex-Parte Order on 9/7/2012 evicted the mother from her home where she and the children had lived all their lives, rendered the mother homeless, effectively vacated the mother’s parental rights, prohibited all contact with her children, and she was permanently separated from her five children.
