John W. DeCamp (born July 6, 1941) is a former Republican member of the Nebraska Legislature and author of the book The Franklin Cover-up: Child Abuse, Satanism, and Murder in Nebraska.


Born in Neligh, Nebraska, DeCamp joined the United States Army during the Vietnam War. In 1975 he initiated Operation Baby Lift, which evacuated 2,800 orphaned Vietnamese children.[1] He was later assigned to serve as an aide to former CIA director William Colby, who was Deputy Ambassador to Vietnam at the time. Beginning his campaign for election while still stationed in Vietnam, DeCamp was elected and served four terms as a Nebraska state senator, from 1971 to 1987.

After the legislature[edit]

Decamp is currently a practicing attorney in Lincoln, Nebraska. He served as a lawyer for the Militia of Montana, a constitutional militia movement group, in the 1990s.[2]

In the May 2006 election, he lost in his attempt to return to the Nebraska state Legislature.[citation needed]

In 2012, he talked with the Ellis County Observer about how he linked Sandusky and Penn State child sex abuse scandal years prior.[3] In 2004, the links were previously disclosed in the transcripts from an interview on The Alex Jones Show.[4]
