How do you feel about them?
Do you think its okay for business people to conspire with media outlets for the sole purpose of keeping negative stories about their business out of the Media?
Over the last 2 years we’ve discovered such a Committee here in Kentucky. We knew there had to be some connection between the local media and a business that we were going after for fraud, mismanagement of funds and corruption.
It was an investigative reporter who was working on our story that discovered such Committee. What did she get in return from the Company she worked for? She was terminated and threatened.
With her information and the help of the FBI, it became very clear who all the members of this Committee were.
What made this Secret Committee extremely interesting and “illegal” was the sitting Government officials who were a part of it. I will say that one of these Government officials wasn’t aware of the true intent of this Secret Committee. This person was told that the Committee was to help expose fraud and corruption throughout the state. Once the true intent was discovered by this Government official, correspondence was sent to certain members of the Committee stating he wanted no part of it and regretted being involved with the Committee in the first place.
The other Government official was clearly aware of the intent of the Committee from the beginning and spearheaded the effort to make sure the Secret Committee continued. This official called various members of the Committee trying to garner their support in continuing the Committee, which included threats if they resisted. This Government official is currently in Federal Custody.
At this time, there are no plans to disclose who any of the members of this Secret Committee are.
We have been told that efforts are being made to “Right” some of the wrongs that have taken place. If by some chance these “Wrongs” aren’t corrected, then I will have no problem listing EVERY member of the Committee, including who they worked for and what role they had in the Secret Committee.
*** To the members of the media that were a part of this Secret Committee. This is a message for you to knock your crap off and do your job.***
