This is the feedback I wrote to them:
"Good afternoon. I have been reading articles that are stating that Mr. Sean Treglia "broke the spirit of the law" (his words) while giving a speech at USC. Is this true?I told them I am from the Americans for Truth and Justice, which is true. I am for truth, and I am for justice. I am also very American! So what is the big deal I am talking about?
This has to do with the Philadelphia-based branch and campaign finance reform. I would like to have your side of the issue before I go to print. If I do not hear from you, I will assume the NY Post and the Opinion Journal are correct in their statements. I would be very disappointed if this is the case.
Do you understand how much damage you have done? (If this is true.)
I understand he no longer works there. Was he fired because of this? I look forward to hearing from you as soon as possible. It goes to print Tuesday evening.
Thank you for your time.
Mr. Sean Treglia gave a speech at USC, and he virtually confessed to fruad. It was all intended for the 535 people in power in Washington, DC. He also did much damage to you and me.
How did he do that? Ryan Sager of the New York Post online has obtained a video tape of a conference held at USC's Annenberg School for Communication in March of 2004 about how he got away with scamming the Congress and Senate into voting for Campaign Finance Reform, otherwise known as Incumbent Security Reform. See for yourself:
Charged with promoting campaign-finance reform when he joined Pew in the mid-1990s, Treglia came up with a three-pronged strategy: 1) pursue an expansive agenda through incremental reforms, 2) pay for a handful of "experts" all over the country with foundation money and 3) create fake business, minority and religious groups to pound the table for reform.Well, well. How about that? Do you realize the FEC is going after bloggers' free speech? Go ahead and sit pretty in your cubicles, but when that day comes and you've said and did nothing, I don't want to hear it.
"The target audience for all this activity was 535 people in Washington," Treglia says — 100 in the Senate, 435 in the House. "The idea was to create an impression that a mass movement was afoot — that everywhere they looked, in academic institutions, in the business community, in religious groups, in ethnic groups, everywhere, people were talking about reform."
So what can we do? We can have Congress investigate this? Yeah right. They already look like fools to me. How about having the President tell the Justice Department to look at it? Yeah right. He's the one who signed it into law in the first place. I called so many times trying to reason with him, and he signed it anyway. No. We can't even go to the IRS, because Treglia was careful enough to disclose to them what he was doing.
So what now? We go to the Federal Elections Board? They are the ones trying to shut you and me down. I'm thinking, alright?! The next election is coming. We can make this a big issue. A law has been given, and a law can been taken away!
Campaign only for people who promise to fight illegal aliens and to repeal the campaign finance reform law. We have to come together. I don't believe Republicans or Democrats like being duped. Let us show the press that if they do not do their jobs, we will.
If the press had investigated this, PEW would have been laughed out of DC. The PEW has/had no credibility in Washington, according to Mr. Treglia. That is why the people who ran the ads did not include the fact that the PEW Trust fund had financed them.
This is illegal. This violates the transparency issues. Of $140 million dollars, $123 million was received from only 8 fundraising organizations. Yes, Soros was one of them. They want to silence us, so we must not let that happen. Keep this story alive. I want him behind bars. I'm pretty sure there will be updates to this.
My friend Jack of Clubs has been doing a very good job on keeping everyone informed about this. He has a list of everyone he knows who has written an article about this. Please visit his site to get more ideas. Thank you, and keep on blogging!
