I think you can appreciate that I can’t simply leave the site and pay no attention to questions that arise that require answering. The allegations Laura has made against Linda Dillon and Dave Schmidt do require a response and I’m doing so as best I can, given that I’m not at home but staying with family with whom I have obligations, etc.
I’ve spoken to Linda who characterizes the report from ten years ago that Laura has published as being “half-truths and lies.” I’m not planning to require more of her for the following reason.
A great deal of the quality of mediums’ work depends on their physical and emotional state. For Linda to face allegations takes a toll on her. If we subject her to too much stress by simply hitting her with one allegation after another, as is happening at the moment, that in itself may decide the outcome. She might have to withdraw simply from being unable to perform her work because of stress interfering with it. I’m sure Laura doesn’t intend that to be the outcome.
So I’m trying to keep the stress on Linda as low as possible. I have no reason not to accept her statement and am moving on.
Laura has also made allegations against Dave Schmidt and Dave has responded. I should add that Dave discussed this matter with me a few months ago and I’m satisfied that he’s handling the situation with honor and integrity.
Dave is the Director of the Hope Chest and is second in charge of the Bridge Fund.
Dave was a Senator in the Washington State Legislature. He left politics but was persuaded to return for a further election attempt, which was unsuccessful.
Some time back, a newspaper article came out alleging that he had used campaign funds improperly following the unsuccessful election bid. Dave is certain that he handled the matter fairly and permissibly, from a legal and ethical standpoint.
This article has already made the rounds once and Dave answered the allegations at that time. People who have probably googled his name have raised the matter a second time. It’s unfortunate that Dave may have to answer the article repeatedly as it surfaces again and again.
Dave believes that if he took the matter in dispute to court he would win but he would also pay more in court costs than by simply paying the fine involved. That being the case it makes more sense to him to simply go before the regulatory commission present his case and bring the matter to a close.
Let me now let Dave describe the issue in his own words, by including the letter Dave wrote to Laura.
Steve and others are very much aware of my issue with the Public Disclosure Commission.
I was in the Washington State legislature for 12 years. The legislature in WA State is classified as a part-time job, but in reality it requires full-time effort, sometimes 70-80 hours per week. The pay was about $35,000 per year so that I was working full-time and more for part-time pay.
In 2006 I lost my re-election campaign. The law is very clear. It states that surplus campaign funds may be used to repay lost wages. During the four years of my term I documented where I lost over $40,000 because I had to forego work, losing about $10,000 per year. $35,000 per year is tough to live on when you’re a single parent putting two children through college.
Because I had no job to fall back on, I could have chosen to to file for unemployment and receive tax dollars or do what is within the guidelines of the law and regulations and use the surplus funds for lost wages.
The PDC in their investigation has chosen to see it differently. Since the article they’ve changed their mind on many of the charges and it’s now the lost wages only, rather than the range of matters discussed in the article. One might question why they were going to charge something one day and the next day change their mind. The law didn’t change, but their opinion on an issue did. The case is still ongoing.
The PDC staff is wanting to settle instead of taking this case before the commission. They’ve given me five options. Most options will require me to hire an attorney which will cost far more than just paying the fine. If I had the money for an attorney I am very confidant I would win the case. It was always my intent to stay within the law and regulations.
I am considering paying the fine rather than paying the anticipated legal costs.
Politics can be a very negative and competitive environment. I was accustomed to being attacked on a regular basis, sometimes receiving over a hundred very vicious and derogatory emails a day. I even had my life threatened a couple of times. It’s an environment where the 3d ego loves to come to life and create chaos and controversy.
I’ve chosen to leave that life behind. Now my goal is to work on my own Ascension process, to be free of judgement and filled with forgiveness. That’s the requirement for a 5d lifestyle. I’m not totally there yet, but I’m consciously working on it. Regardless of the outcome of the case, I’m moving on to a new 5d life, as we’ve all been advised to do.
