Ladies and gentlemen: Please read the following message and 3 additional messages that will follow. Regarding this subject. It is my opinion that pending the end results of this investigation that Phillip Meskin should be relieved of his duty as the Veterans Party of America, Executive Chairman and those duties should be turned over to Glenda Kelley, our Vice Chairperson until the investigation is concluded. Charges such as these are a detrimental to our fledging Political Party and true or not must be pursued until the truth is known. I recommend every elected State Party Chair contact Glenda and make their thoughts on this information known.
Florida State Chair, VPA
CRIMINAL COMPLAINTS FILED AGAINST
November 30, 2005
Thompson, Florida Chairperson of the Veterans Party of America, in a recent
E-mail sent to me by him, stated that:
"In the interest of truth and at the request to forward this message, here it is:
I am still pursuing information that will clear-up or substantiate the allegations of wrong doing. All I see in the following messages is a conversation between two acquaintances, a reference to possible unlawful acts and Glenda's comments on free speech.
I ask you Mr. Richards; that as a registered member of the Veterans Party if he intends to pursue prosecution of his comments of wrong doing, in the interest of justice and for the good of the Veterans Party.
My interests lies only in the truth where the Veterans Party of America and those who are involved in the Party is concerned. If any of you can help me clear this up, please do so, but only with facts or the names of persons or Organizations to whom I can contact to obtain the facts. Until I have discovered what the facts are, and researched them based on the accusers information, I will not stop until it is cleared up. If either of you wish to help me, before the issue becomes public, please do so now."
However, there appears to be at least one person who believes that the Veterans Party of America and its Leaders and Candidates should not, will not, and cannot be subjected to scrutiny or ever questioned by the Public or the Government like other Political Parties.
This misconception by this person is based upon the fact that this Party and its constituency are primarily comprised of Veterans. Therefore, even when there is evidence of corruption or other unlawful acts or omissions by its Leaders or Candidates that nobody would or should dare to investigate and invoke Fines or Penalties to its Leaders or Candidates.
This person is one Phillip G. Meskin. A Veteran, and the National Chairperson for the National Elections Committee (NEC) of the Veterans Party of America, and Operator of the Veterans Public Awareness Foundation, and the Veterans Post News Newspaper.
And when questioned by others and me as to certain unlawful acts and omissions associated with the Veterans Party of America, Meskin either refused to answer or lied, even though the information requested is a matter of Public Record and required to be disclosed as a Matter of Law.
If anything were true, it would be that the Veterans Party of America should be held to an even higher standard than other Political Parties if part of its Platform is that the Party is going to be different and better than the other Political Parties, and where America and Americans first really means something.
In the interest of Truth and Justice, and for the good and future of the Veterans Party of America on whose behalf Contributions are solicited and raised, and which are supposed to go to the Party's National, State, and County Candidates running for Elected Office and not be funneled for personal financial gain. And that the Party's Website should not be used for unlawful activities and personal financial gain.
And in the interest of Veterans throughout the United States on whose behalf Donations are solicited and raised by the Veterans Public Awareness Foundation Operated by Phillip G. Meskin, and of which are supposed to go to help Veterans, and not be funneled for personal financial gain.
WHEREFORE, in that I have personally gathered, as well as received substantial evidence and information and testimony from other Members of The Party, and that I have also personally witnessed what appears to be numerous Unlawful Acts and Omissions Perpetrated by Phillip G. Meskin in association, connection, and co-mingling of the Veteran Party of America, the Veterans Public Awareness Foundation, and the Veterans Post Newspaper, and that I have presented this evidence to the Law Enforcement Agencies set forth below, and that:
