THE FRANKLIN SCANDAL – A Story of Powerbrokers, Child Abuse & Betrayal ( Documentary)

The FRANKLIN SCANDAL is the story of a nationwide pedophile ring that pandered children to a cabal of the rich and powerful. The rings pimps were a pair of Republican powerbrokers who used Boys Town as a pedophiliac reservoir, had access to the highest levels of our government, and connections to the CIA.

Nebraska legislators nearly exposed the ring in 1990, but its unveiling had the potential to produce seismic political aftershocks: a rash of deaths and a full court press by federal and local law enforcement effected an immaculate cover-up.

State and federal grand juries in Nebraska and a former US Attorney for the District of Columbia played an integral role in the cover-up, and the author has had access to thousands of documents that would ultimately be sealed by the two grand juries. His documentation includes Omaha Police Department reports and internal memos, Nebraska State Patrol reports, Nebraska Department of Social Services reports,internal Boys Town reports, victim debriefings, hundreds of the rings airline receipts, etc.

The FRANKLIN SCANDAL tells the complete tale of a power elite pedophile ring in the US and also of the cover-up of its heinous crimes. Various news organizations have attempted to break aspects of this story, but the reports have either been ignored or mysteriously shelved. Major news agencies, including ABC, have backed away from pursuing this story; conversely, CBS abetted its cover-up. Its obvious that very powerful people have a vested interest in safeguarding this secret.

Journalist Nick Bryant stumbled on to a U.S. Customs report on the “Finders,” a group reportedly responsible for kidnapping children.



Seven years and 40,000 miles later and he’s written the authoritative history on the cover up of a child trafficking network centered in Omaha in his newly released book “The Franklin Scandal”.

He located several of the young victims, who are now adults, and persuaded them to talk – some for the first time ever; he tracked down members of the sex-ring, getting them to speak publicly about what happened. Digesting thousands of documents and conducting hundreds of hours of interviews, Bryant has written the definitive narrative of our country’s most suppressed scandal. More than just an exposé, this is also an amazing chronicle of courage, faith and fortitude amidst great betrayal.
