Congressional Quarterly is reporting that the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) has asked the FBI to investigate looting from inside the organization. The NRCC is the funding-arm for the GOP, politicians who sit down together and strategize which Congressional and/or US Senatorial races need a boost during election cycles. I suspect solving the case should be easy: Simply look at which Republican incumbents who are desperate
Michele enough to keep their Bachmann seat in Congress. NRCC Chair, Tom Cole (R-OK) has asked for the investigation and sent a written release saying:
“As part of our ongoing efforts to institute and strengthen financial controls at the National Republican Congressional Committee, we learned earlier this week of irregularities in our financial audit process”
“Since these irregularities may include fraud, we have notified the appropriate law enforcement authorities. We are aggressively and thoroughly investigating the matter and, while we determine the details, we have terminated our relationship with a former employee who was engaged as an outside vendor.”
This isn’t the first time the NRCC has reported financial woes. This causes me to believe the looting of Republican funds has been going on for sometime. In November of 2007, NRCC was $4 million in debt and had a parse $1.6 million on-hand. The NRCC hasn’t seen this extreme in financial problems since Michele Bachmann was elected for Minnesota’s 6th CD.
Another strange coincidence? When the bill was brought up to fund security for the city of St Paul and the upcoming GOP 2008 Presidential campaign, everyone of Minnesota’s Congressional delegates voted for those funds, except for Bachmann.
Let’s have a serious talk about the perverts. Perversion and Larceny are, after all, the Flora and the Fauna of the GOP.
Do you remember a company called “Clean Flix”? It was the “GOP Darling” among the Evangelical wing in the early
Depression Bush II Years. Clean Flix was a company organized that would “sterilize” Hollywood film from anything they deemed “sinful” for personal distribution grade DVD’s. The Utah-based, Mormon owned company wanted to distribute their movie version and rent them in direct competition to Blockbuster video and Netflix. (Get it? “Flix”? They’re so god damned creative, they even ripped off part of the fucking name from someone else!)
Lawsuits filed in 2002 shut the company down in 2006. Hollywood greatest directors including Spielberg, Redford and Scorsese along with the studios of Disney, Sony, Universal, Paramount and Twentieth Century Fox wrote up a copyright lawsuit so huge, God couldn’t buy an attorney to bail them out. Clean Flix planned to appeal and whipped out a Biblical analogy:
“We’re disappointed,” CleanFlicks CEO Ray Lines said. “This is a typical case of David vs. Goliath, but in this case, Hollywood rewrote the ending. We’re going to continue to fight.”
If you erpped a little bit of vomit in the back of your throat; I share your taste. They look at themselves as “David” who’s trying to steal, plagiarize, sanitize and re-distribute “Goliath’s” art work. So far I don’t think Michele Bachman has had anything to do with this lawsuit.
The company’s CEO’s, both Latter Day Saints (a.k.a. “Mitt Romney Voters”), decided an alternative route: Re-open the store, with the Sin-Free videos and claim them “education material”. It could have worked, if Daniel D. Thompson (31 yrs) and Isaac Liefferth (24 yrs) hadn’t been messing around with the students.
Two 14-year old girls and a 16 year old girl worked their text messaging phones and easily found Thompson and Liefferth who gladly paid them plenty in exchange for oral sex. Yes, I was relieved to learn they were heterosexual perverts too. Because if it was 14 year old boys – “The Gays” would have taken the rap as Thompson and Leifferth were proof that “The Gays” were simply “recruiting”. Since it’s a heterosexual pervert story, there’s no
fucking “Gay Agenda” bullshit to worry about.
It was the 16-year olds Mom who was the sharpie. She noticed the stash of $20’s in the kid’s bedroom and pried the whole
god damn story out of her.
The booking documents state Thompson told the 14-year-olds that his film sanitizing business was a cover for a pornography studio. He asked the girls if they would participate in making a porn movie, but they refused, the documents state.
Police found a “large quantity” of pornographic movies inside the business, along with a keg of beer, painkillers and two cameras hooked up to a television. Thompson told police he didn’t know the teenagers were under 18 or that they were paid for sex. He said pornography found at the business was for “personal use,” according to the documents.
Thompson was released Friday after posting $30,000 bail. Lifferth remained in the Utah County jail late Friday, with bail set at $30,000.
Formal charges have not been filed against either man. Calls to Thompson’s phone number went unanswered Friday.
Now let’s pull off the
fucking buggy-wheels on this baby carriage and look at the fun parts of this story. Peter T. Chattaway notes in Arts and Faith blog the disparaging twist in who is the actual owners of CleanFlix. In his own blog “FilmChat“, he spotted the judge’s ruling in the original lawsuit, Deseret Morning News declaring both Ray Lines and Daniel D. Thompson as CleanFlix CEO/owners. Since Mr. Thompson and Mr. Liefferth’s arrest, CleanFlix has developed severe heartburn over that fucking “CEO” term and has filed a one million dollar lawsuit against Thompson. Mr. Ray Lines goes out of his way to denying any relationship with Mr. Pervert Thompson or his fucking illegal activities with minors in his CleanFlix stores relating to any god damned minors.
“We want everyone to see that we stand for the antithesis of everything with which we have been erroneously linked in recent reports,” said Ray Lines, whom CleanFlicks says is the true founder of their company.
Christianity Today, also one of many media outlets that made the mistake on the whole “CEO/Owner” thing. Other media outlets included Salt Lake Tribune, Provo Daily Herald as well as the local CBS affiliate so at least Christian Today was in fairly good company. Embarrassed by the mix-up, Christianity Today had to ask CleanFlix about the confusion. (They’re Christians
for fuck’s sake, they don’t make mistakes!) David Politis, CleanFlix’s publicist explained it very well. After all, not knowing who’s a CEO and who’s an “Owner” can be a wee-bit confusing. Said Politis:
CleanFlicks used to run a number of brick-and-mortar dealerships in Utah, but when they decided to become exclusively an online DVD rental business in 2002, they sold the stores to individuals. Thompson’s father apparently bought three of the stores, and later hired his son, Daniel, to manage one of them. CleanFlicks later required all of the brick-and-mortar stores to cease using the CleanFlicks name.
Apparently, Daniel isn’t a CEO/Owner afterall. He’s a manager while his Daddy is the real “CEO/Owner”. But “Junior” is the one being sued for millions of dollars for infringing on the trademark of a fine quality corporation that infringes on professional grade film and art.
Also worth noting: While stupidly not doing their homework the first time when the original broke, Christianity Today decided to include something CleanFlix’s discovered about Thompson:
Meanwhile, CleanFlicks had also learned that Daniel Thompson had served time in the Utah County Jail for various indictments on securities fraud, money laundering, and theft. (Documents from the Fourth District Court in Provo confirm this.) At that time, CleanFlicks told Thompson’s father that they would no longer do business with his son.
god damned background checks at the CleanFlix corporation to “run” and manage your fucking brick-and-mortar outlet’s Mr. Lines? Christianity Today, along with a half-dozen other media outlets can’t the time to do a little research before going to print?
