We received the following email from Kent Hovind today:

From Dr. Kent Hovind:
Hey friends! It's Friday morning at 7 am MST. I packed my stuff yesterday so they will be moving me at any time. It may be today or it may be days from now BUT, I was just asked by my case manager to sign a release form for the BOP to release info about my situation to Senator Marco Rubio's office in Florida. Apparently he contacted them and is seeking to help me get closer to home! BOP policy is that inmates be within 500 miles of home but, unless many step in NOW, I will probably end up in Berlin, New Hampshire to help fill their new camp. The fact that it is further from home than here doesn't matter. They need bodie$ to rai$e the budget.Anyway, I will most likely be in the Oklahoma transfer center for a day or two so they can STILL change and designate me to PENSACOLA or Maxwell in Montgomery, AL which is 170 miles away. PLEASE contact Senator Rubio's office TODAY and ask that they designate me to inside my region according to BOP policy and as my sentencing judge recommended.
I predict the form I just signed will be SLOWLY processed (ie-weeks) to attempt to prevent the Senator from interceding in time. When you call his office mention that I did sign it and do want his help. He can contact the camp here and my case manager Mrs. Beiker, who has the form, can fax it or verify it right away. While I am en route they can still redesignate me IF they get enough pressure! Like Esther, sometimes action must be taken before it is too late! Please pray for this situation and make a call!
If any of you that post this can add Senator Rubio's phone or email or address please do. Thanks for your prayers and help!!
To give you some background info, Dr. Hovind has been held in Colorado since last year, well outside the 500 mile radius recommended by the BOP (Bureau of Prisons), making it very difficult for his family to visit.
With this new camp opening in Berlin, NH, he would be even farther away from home if transferred there, which is what it seems like they are trying to do.
Please mention that:
- Kent Hovind received his request to release info about his case, has filled out and submitted the form, and would like Marco Rubio's help.
- Please ask for Marco Rubio to contact Kent Hovind's case manager, Mrs. Beiker, to ask her to fax or verify the form right away. To contact Mrs. Beiker, please ask Marco Rubio / his office to call the prison at 719-784-9464. The switchboard will ask him for the name of the inmate (Kent Hovind) and his number (06452-017) before being able to transfer him to Mrs. Beiker. Please do NOT call Mrs. Beiker yourself - this information is on here only to make it easy to share with Senator Rubio.
- Please ask for Marco Rubio to intercede on Kent Hovind's behalf immediately, as he is already ready for transfer, so he can be rerouted closer to home (per BOP policy and the recommendation of the sentencing judge), rather than being moved further away from home. Dr. Hovind's first choice would be to be transferred to Pensacola, FL; his second choice is the Maxwell facility in Montgomery, AL.
