They know that they have no chance of hanging on in the Teamsters if the government lackies go away.

Dear Mr. Puccio:
You will recall that, following your telephone call to me of March 28, 1994, to seek my assistance in arranging a meeting with Mr. Carey, I told you what Mr. Ruff had advised the Independent Review Board about his meeting with you, Mr. Moroney and your counsel, that is, that at that meeting he had been told that unless the IBT agreed to the trusteeship of 295 being extended to 851, you were going to go public with all the materials that you had on Carey. Nonetheless, I told you that I would talk to Judge Webster and advise him of your call to me, and also pass your request on to the IBT. Judge Webster and I decided that we would relay your request to Mr. Ruff, and I did so.
During our conversation, I told you that I thought you and Mr. Moroney ought to have in mind what would happen if you brought Carey down in that there were "old guard" Teamsters throughout the country that were hoping that Carey would be eliminated as a candidate in 1996 so that the clock could be turned back to what it was when I first came on the scene as independent administrator. You indicated that you had not given any thought to that but you would keep it in mind.
On March 31 I called you to tell you that I had conveyed to Mr. Ruff your request to meet with Mr. Carey. In that same conversation I read to you the article from the march 27, 1994, New York Newsday, quoting Mr. Moroney's comments on Mr. Carey and also advised you that a reporter had called from the Chicago newspaper quoting Mr. Moroney as saying, "Carey is a spokesman for the mob."
Later on March 31 you called back to tell me that you had spoken with Mr. Moroney and that he denied the quote attribute to him by the Chicago newspaper and, as well, the article in New York Newsday.
I thought you should know that information about our initial conversation was possessed by one or more third parties on March 31. On that day Mr. Carberry's office received an "anonymous" call (the voice was the same as that which has conveyed numerous other pieces of information about Carey), stating that the speaker knew that you and I had met and that I had told you that "Carey is a bum but he is our bum." I can only speculate how our conversation could have been distorted into a meeting and how my statement, while distorted, was known to the caller so soon after we spoke. It is alarming to me to know that third parties, literally within hours, are aware of conversations that you and I have.
Finally, the names of Long and Kelly are familiar to you. I enclose a copy of Kelly's affidavit in his lawsuit against Carberry, Judge Edelstein, etc. In this lawsuit he has made reckless allegations against all of the defendants. I thought you should be aware of the enclosure, given what he has charged against people for whom I know you have the utmost respect.
I think that if you wish to communicate with me you do so in writing, and I will respond in writing as well.
Very truly yours,
Frederick B. Lacey
