In the Courier's Sept. 11, 2021, “Tierce, Pool Head to Court," I don’t think District Attorney Ted Bell is protecting women’s rights.

So far Bell has refused to press charges against Judge Randy Pool, even though 35 women have accused him of inappropriate sexual behavior, and actual sexual actions! Women’s rights are not being protected by our District Attorney, Ted Bell.

Judge Pool also lied to investigators when discussing his relationship to Ms.Tierce who is in Court now for extortion. She wanted Judge Pool to exchange cash for not revealing the Judges sexual relations with her!

What more information does attorney Bell need besides 35 women accusing the Judge of inappropriate sexual behavior?

Please Attorney Bell, represent all of your citizens in Western North Carolina.
