Trump Co-chair/ NH State Rep., Fred Doucette Dodges Court Case, but Finally Gets Served
Ya know — When I received a 9-page “book report” from Trump’s lawyers on March 15th effectively asserting my paperwork wasn’t real paperwork, because they had received my paperwork, I thought that that would be about as ridiculous as things could get. Luckily I was able to hire some more folks to serve more papers — and within a short period of time, Donny’s legal beagles had reversed their tune, and waived service. I had been getting the runaround from Trump… and his campaign… and his company… and his security guy… and the Manchester Police Department… and the Attorney General and the Mayor, and every Manchester official I had come in contact with for three years. Suddenly, that was all out the window, simply at the snap of a finger.
But… there was one last holdout. He was the guy that Donald Trump threw under the bus — not unlike Trump’s security throwing me over a table. The man in question was New Hampshire State Representative, Mr. Fred Doucette. In my mind, I imagine his friends call him The Douce — like how that orange guy is “The Situation,” and that other orange guy is “The Donald.” Once Trump & Friends lawyered-up, I assumed they’d be representing Fred since he was one of Trump’s co-chairs for New Hampshire. However, when I spoke to the Orange One’s attorneys by phone, they were like, “Fred, who?”
Within days of the 2015 incident, in which Trump’s security officer Eddie Jon Deck and Manchester cop James Pittman threw me into a table, ala WWE Monday Night Raw, I had messaged Doucette on Facebook, and his official New Hampshire government-issued email address. No response. I spent three years trying to find a lawyer, with no luck. But now that the case is moving in the courts, I’ve spent a considerable amount of time trying to contact Doucette once again. It’s like pin-the-tail on the bureaucrat. It feels like I’ve knocked on every door in town, and nobody’s home.
I’ve sent the papers by email. I’ve called Fred. I’ve called the Secretary of State. They passed the buck to Steve Shurtleff, the Speaker of the House. I called him and his assistants. Finally, I spoke to Bud Fitch in the SOS office, and Kris Conquest emailed me — but ultimately, I still couldn’t get in touch with Fred. I made dozens attempts, doing everything short of hiring carrier pigeons.
So, once again, I hired process servers The Nason Group — but they couldn’t seem to find anyone at Fred’s house to take the papers. However, on Tuesday, everything changed. Kristen Nason from the Nason Group called to tell me that Mr. Doucette had been served. Evidently, it sounds like it was a bit of a scene. Sadly, on that day, I also received a letter from the “registered agent” of Trump Organization, LLC. Without saying that they represented the company directly, they basically said there are two Trump Organizations — both full of executives from Donald Trump’s family. Hiding something? I guess that’s up to the courts to decide.
Well, after three long years of searching, the people at the Nason Group helped me get the papers to Fred. According to the affidavit, “Fred Doucette confirmed his name, and was also seen wearing a name tag that read Fred Doucette. He refused to take the paperwork and explained he was going to call his lawyer. Agent drop served Mr. Doucette, who said “this guy is suing me for 5 million dollars” he then went on to say other things but agent left the area.”
The affidavit goes on to say, “Agent looped back around and saw Mr. Doucette on the phone. He then spoke to a NH State Trooper. The Trooper picked up the documents and looked through them with Doucette and appeared to hand the papers to Doucette. Please see attached photo.”
After visiting the Secretary of State’s office today and jumping through a thousand more hoops to make sure The Trump Organization, Inc was served, I got a message indicating that Fred had lawyered-up. As it turns out, he took my advice and decided to talk to the folks representing Trump & Friends.
See — that wasn’t so hard, Fred. You are an elected official. If you believe in the government you serve, is it not incumbent upon you to take responsibility for your actions?
New Hampshire politics… See you again, soon!
