Exclusive: Money for Nothing and Chick's for Free
Admitted violator of the Espionage Act (for which he is still subject to criminal charges) David Horowitz has received a generous grant from the taxpayer-supported Corporation for Public Broadcating(that's you and me; the CPB receives taxpayer funding). Horowitz already receives generous funding for being Richard Mellon Scaife's monkeyboy. It's bad enough that Horowitz is taking money from an obviously unbalanced kook like Scaife, but the idea that our tax money should go to this clown is an outrage. As well as being a traitor, Horowitz is a hack of the worst kind. Just read the dreck on his web site.
For my own part, I can't blame Horowitz for getting money for nothing. I'm trying to get modest funding for my own indie film, but I know that if I were going to have my hand out to Uncle Sam, I would make sure I hadn't been undermining his security.
An Urgent Call to Action: Call the Corporation for Public Broadcasting's Inspector General's Office toll-free at 1-800-599-2170 or you could e-mail: OIGemail@cpb.org (I recommend calling if possible). Ask them why US taxpaper moneys are going to someone who admitted violating the Espionage Act. Point out how Horowitz is still subject to indictment for violation of the Espionage Act.
Call CPB President Ervin Duggan (who privately met with Horowitz about the funding) at (202) 879-9600.
For good measure, contact the Secret Service and let them know that Horowitz, an admitted violator of the Espionage Act, was able to bypass security and meet with George W. Bush (click here to read Horowitz's unintentionally funny and sappy account of his meeting with the Usurper-In-Chief). I don't generally recommend snitching but this could also leave egg on the face of Not-My-President Bush.
