An attack has been perpetrated on myself, my family and a Facebook page that I was one of the three originators of over two and a half years ago. I love this page and have been administrating on it since it had less than 100 fans.
To begin with – the “owner” of another page (We Survived Bush You Will Survive Obama) has said that I stole this page; that’s a lie. There was a dispute about the “ownership” of the page and through exhaustive legal and ethical channels I was awarded control of the page I love and worked for for over 2 years. There was no “hacking”; as I said – I’ve been here from the beginning and I’ve invested countless hours making Americans Against the Tea Party (AATTP) what it is today. The reason for this smear campaign is simple: extortion. This particular FB page “owner” who is accusing me of theft actually tried to extort and he has threatened me and my family. This particular FB page “owner” makes money by writing articles with Examiner.com. He makes money every time someone even clicks on one of his articles. I am now being personally attacked because I would not submit to his demands. He was very clear – if I shared his articles … he would leave me alone; if I didn’t – he would be my enemy and I would regret not capitulating to his demands.
In short – it is very much like a hostage situation except I was the hostage. After I refused – he shared my personal information and info of my family. My phone #, address, name etc. He said he’d visit my work, school, show up at my home and the homes of friends and family and share information with my friends and neighbors unless I did as instructed. He made veiled threats against my safety and security as you will see in his emails to me. I will not be taken hostage, threatened, bullied, harassed, or intimidated and AATTP is not for sale. Period.
I have handed over all this information to the appropriate authorities and an investigation is underway. I cannot comment any further on the details of this investigation, except to say that it is ongoing and I am providing all the information I can, including posts,threats and emails and phone records from individual members of WSBYWSO and the page owner and his agents who are attacking me at the page owners urging.
This is the first email from the owner of WSBYWSO of his extortion attempt. The owner of WSBYSO uses many fake profiles; one of them is Jamal Lewis.
Here is the second email from the owner of WSBYWSO, saying he’ll make this go away if I agree to his demands. In this email he posts private contact information of my family. (redacted)
