AFA-KY may be engaging in illegal tricks

Sorry late-ish on this, folks, but wanted to get my ducks in a row here...

Anyways, there is evidence to suggest that AFA-KY and Freedom's Heritage Forum--groups run by notorious dominionist hatemonger Frank Simon--may be robocalling in attempts to dead-agent both the Kentucky Fairness Coalition and Democratic candidate Steve Beshear.

This is something that hits very, very close to home for me--Simon happens to be a deacon of the very church I walked away from, among other things, and (partly from having grown up in his church) I've seen the rather nasty history of this sort of stuff that has been promoted (including, of note, frank promotion of Holocaust revisionism such as "The Pink Swastika"--these people are essentially a slightly less outspoken version of Watchmen On The Walls and in particular their American front)...stuff that is finally starting to get the attention of the SPLC.

If any readers in KY have received these robocalls and have not received other telephone calls since, you *should* be able to hit *57 to trace (they have hidden caller ID records and complaints are already being filed with the KY electoral commission, so this should hopefully give them some info to work with--they at least can't forge ANI records).

Also, those of you on DailyKos, please recommend the first link above so that this info gets out, and feel free to post links to others. (The local media has not reported on this so much, though a few national outlets are starting to.)

Latest AFA News - Christmas Buttons


I find it amusing, seeing as Halloween has been changed to "Harvest" or "Autumn" festivals.

A request for help from the community re AFA-KY robocalls

Upon further review of the "Fake Fairness Coalition" calls (there are several recordings out there), I am thinking the voice does sound a lot like that of Frank Simon (based on previous Freedom's Heritage Forum robocalls).

However, I just want to make sure I'm not on crack. Hence, I am requesting your assistance. (If any of you known people into voice analysis, please also point them this way.)

Here is the latest post on Pam's House Blend (there will shortly be a mirror post on DailyKos, as soon as it allows me to post, that is) regarding the matter from me--it includes links to speeches from Simon as well as the robocall in question.

This is necessary as we may have found definitive evidence linking Simon firmly to the robocalling, and I really want to nail these bastards to the wall if we can get good, solid proof.

Recommends and comments appreciated.

Finances of Six Evangelists Draw Senator's Scrutiny


From the Wall Street Journal

November 6, 2007; Page A6

The ranking Republican on the Senate Finance Committee is looking into six television evangelists, including Benny Hinn, Creflo Dollar and other "prosperity theology" adherents who preach that wealth is a sign of God's favor.

Sen. Charles Grassley of Iowa wants to know whether the ministers have avoided taxes on for-profit activities or used their ministries for personal benefit. Religious organizations are generally exempt from federal taxes, but they must pay taxes if they engage in for-profit businesses. Employees can't use church property primarily for personal gain.

Mr. Grassley said his investigation was prompted by complaints from watchdog groups and others that the ministers live in multimillion-dollar homes, travel on private jets and engage in profit-making ventures from their ministries. He said the complaints raised suspicions,.  )
