the

incredible claims in his resume w-hich would have al*rted a reasonabie person
as

to the accu{acv or veracig. of these claims.

3 By vu-r* of example, the perpetrator was


horn ol April 1 1 1992; in his resunre he
lndlcated that he established and coordinated the ChiJdren's Evangelical Fel{owship f,ve day
camps throughout the greater Houston area in Aprii 2007 when he wouid have oniy been 15

Upon infon:ration belief, Defendants simpiy made inquiries and accepted

Irr an effort to meet a quota to justiS grant funding, the Defendants strongly
encouraged

Plailtiffs tr: enroll I!.I.A.R. in Defendants' vallous progmrts.

In that regard, Amelia Wilcox, Defendant-Appletree's Assistant Director,

saw

Plaintiffs' car in &ont of a iawyer's ailce in the small tov-n of Truth or


Consequences, Nelv Mexico.

After ccncluding that the Plaintiffs were seeking cou:rsei, Defendant Rebecca Dow
and Ameiia

lVilcox abused their principal and emptroyer status by putting pressure

on Plaintiff,s by artempting to coerce them into foregoing filing a claim by


sunmoning C.R. to Defendant Rebecca Dow,'s office and putting pressure on her
through the possible loss of her employment and other taclics or at the very least b,,Rebecca -Dorv exercising her authority as C.X-,'s supen isor.

91.

It is inconceivable that the Congressrna:r *,ouicl have written such a hstimonial

if

Deiendant ltebecca f)ovv had toLd irim the complete facls surrounding this matier.
Due lo ihat misinformation or lack of inforanation by ornission, the Congress:nan

i.vrcngly stales that Defendant Rebecea Dow's actions put the abuser in prison,
Defendant Rebecca Dorv puts children's
ra'ent

to the potrice r:pon i*aming the

indicates, lhese colclusions are

safu-ry-

iacts. As Rebecca Dow,s

or.vn material

false, Defendant l{ebecca Dorv allowed

Congressma"u to repeat these less than accurate statements in

the

furlh.er attempt to put

her caiapaign's succsss ahead of ihe salbtl and rvelfarc of the plaintiiTs.
92

In essence, Defendant Rebecc-a Dou. is using the ofices

of

ltepresentative Ham;t*n

and Congressman Pearce to discredit tl.re Plaintiffs and further her poliricd desires,
goaLs, and concerns.

Contrary

to the

congre$smair's suggesiion that Defend.iint Rebecca Dow

immediately severed ties rvith tire perpetrator,. Defendants' oram discor.rry material

Order and iroted as Bates Numbeied 37) and perhaps considering to rehire him since
many of her sun'ogates r.vere asking the Court that he not be incarceraied as noled in

Allega'rion 41 above.

isolated and removed the staff member in question from the premises. Authorities were immediately
alerted, who subsequently took the alleged offender into custody. Club leadership follorxed all

Teachers on Mooday raised coneeras about regulations proposed bythe Nerv


Mexico Childreu, I'outh and Farniiles Departmer:t, sayi:rg the rules were at times
ambigucus, out cf step with tederal regulations and unfair to lo*-income families.
The state regulations, wirich have nat been updated since r99:, couid affect elass
sizes at eariy childhood centers, training standards for edlcators aad requte
background checks for parents ir:r.olved ln classroom activlties.

About 4o early childLood educators atterded tle pubiic hearing before tiie
comment period closed at noon- The departn:ent is to release its aew regulations
Oct r.In all, foar public forums were held throughout the state, d.rawiag about
1oo commenls, some il favor and odrers critlcizing, of the proposed cha:rges,

IlenryYalela, a spokesural for the departmeni, said tbe state l:as to change lie
ruies to rece.ive a g4r nriliion federal graai for early &ildhood education EIe said
commerts from ile pabiic hearings wili be evaluated to "see if any additi.onal
ciranges wilJ be made-n
The state has made strides in preschool educatisu during tbe last decade, going
frorn 7 percent of 4-year-olds eurolled in pre-K programs in :oo6" to 30 percent
iast 1ear. New L{exico also l:as seei: a 43 percent fundiag increase for early
childhood programs, accorrli*g to the National Ilstituie for Early Education
Research,

But educators sn l\{onday -said the department's regu}ations should be reworded to

belter meet the needs of childret ia t}e state. Ner+'llledco cotsistently has beeu iu
llre bottom tier natioually of theAaaie B. Casey Fotndatioa's annual study on
child well*beiug.
Sorne expresseC coneern that the wayfamilies r+,ould be screeued for flnancial
assistarce is curobersorre and could leave children from needy famili.es without
corrsistent eare. Educato:s said families who worked in day labor, rnigrant farrning
or otlier positions that do r:ct provide a pay stub or have i::consistelt income lyere
being prohibited &,om sewices they are entitled to underihe law.
The requiremeals irnposed ou families,that face tioleaca, srch as proridiag proof
of a police reporto could alsc put a family ia more dalger wheu they are seeking

The revised state regulations base tlte ma.rimum aumber of driidren and i:rfalts in
a gil'en room on toom capacit-y, number of caregivers aari age of &e children. They
used the example of r5 ilfants per roor:r and lwc educators per ni:re intalts.
Edr:cators said tire caps H.ere too high and did not account for the difflcnl$ of
caring for small chil&en,
Rebecca Dow, of AppleTree Edncalion Center in Trrrth or Consequences, said the

regulations faiied to coasider tire rerilities o{ruaning an early child care center,
ard the standards r,rere inflexible, makiag it impossible for some centers to
con Linue fur:ctioniag,
Dow, a Republican who is nmniag for a seat in the state House of Represe[tatives
this fall, is the acting policy* chain*orrau for the Nelv Mexico Child Care and
Education Association.
"Yes, we waat high-qua-lity programs," she said. nEut when we cannot neet the
standard ... families are 1eft with nothing."

Teachers also criticized a proposed reguiatioa lhat ail parents or grandparerrts


who voluateer in the classraom or for field trips must {irst trodergo bac}qround
checks. They called it r:rtreeessary, Educators also said this reqcirement would
place a irurden ofi mary partsnts aad graudparents wbo vrould have to strain to pay
for tire baekgrouid checks.

Diana Maze, from the faini\ advocacy group, O1 Nerv FIexico, said these isstes
amouut to an "uolecessary burden placed on parents."
