This letter will clear up all the rumors floating around. I am a concerned friend of Pahrump Fire Department Lieutenant Firefighter Steve Moody. I am aware, along with many other firefighters of inappropriate and more so scandalous behavior Chief Lewis has engaged in with Steve’s wife Sandra Moody. The detailed circumstances are well known around the firehouse and quit frankly I am tired of coming to work to continually find Steve venting detailed information to firefighters what Chief Lewis has done to his wife and how the previous Town Board members did nothing about it. I want to tell Steve I am sorry if the way I disclose this information embarrasses or upsets you but your story needs to come to light so the public can see what you and the rest of the firefighters deal with while working for Chief Lewis. Steve, you are a good man and deserve to come to work happy. You deserve to be supported by your superiors. You don’t deserve to have Chief Lewis take advantage of you or hold things over your head. Remember, it’s not your fault Steve, Chief Lewis is the one that crossed the line with your wife and placed you in this situation.
For what it’s worth, he we go. Chief Lewis was involved in a sex scandal with Lieutenant Firefighter Steve Moody’s wife from January through February 2012. While Steve was at work Chief Lewis would be sexting or more commonly known as sending dirty text messages to Steve’s wife from his department cell phone. As the sexting progressed Chief Lewis would call Steve in for overtime causing Steve to leave his home to attend work. Steve one day noticed text messages on his wife’s cell phone from Chief Lewis’ fire department work cell phone at inappropriate hours. Later Chief Lewis found out the sex scandal was discovered by Steve. Chief Lewis proceeded to Steve’s home to defuse the situation. From what Steve told me, the confrontation started as yelled at one another and amounted to a physical altercation. Chief Lewis then came up with a plan and told Steve how they were going to deal with this situation and hide it from the town board and media.
If it wasn’t for Steve constantly venting to me and talking to other firefighters at the firehouse, I don’t think we would have ever have known this event happened. One thing I have noticed is the difference in Steve’s attitude and decision making while at work. He started talking about moving out of state, searching for new jobs, and quitting the fire service. This is not the Steve I know. Steve has been in the fire service for many years and loves his job. Steve always has a smile on his face and will brake his back for you. I am confident the Pahrump Valley Time news will investigate the information provided in this letter and hold town officials accountable if they continue to cover up this heart braking story. This type of inappropriate behavior does not belong in the firehouse nor does it in the fire service. No firefighter or human being should go through what my dear friend Steve has gone through these last 12 months. Worst of all, Chief Lewis’ decision to engage in this type of lewd behavior has damaged Steve’s relationship with his wife.
To prove this story is true and accurate, Chief Lewis’ fire department cell phone records can be obtained from the Town of Pahrump office. If the Pahrump Valley Time news needs further confirmation of this story, I can provide you with first and last names of each firefighter that Steve has made aware of the sex scandal. Last, if requested I will provide you with voice recordings of Lieutenant Firefighter Steve Moody and Chief Lewis discussing the sex scandal.
All the information disclosed in this letter is true to the best of my knowledge and for time being I would like to stay anonymous. This letter is in my own words, but was drafted by a colleague of mine. Thank you for your time as always.
