Posted on 09/10/2005 2:55:51 PM PDT by Sam Hill
Cindy Sheehan's backers, the Veterans For Peace, are on the move:
We are moving some of the Camp Casey operations from the Pine View Middle School to The Green Room at 521 Boston Street in Covington - More information coming ASAP.
The VFP had to move out of the Pine View Middle School because they had lied to the school officials, claiming they were with the Red Cross, when they are not. Only Red Cross workers are permitted to be in that facility.
The Green Room is a bar. Both the Red Cross and the Covington police have checked it out. They both report no sign of the VFP being there.
Some more news from the VFP's bulletin board
Posted: Fri Sep 09, 2005 8:39 pm Post subject: Do's and Don'ts--Fresh from Covington (Fri, 9/10--2:30 PM CT)Red Cross officials have said that this is completely untrue. The Red Cross does not endorse any shelters. Period. Besides, the VFP doesn't even have a shelter. They don't even have an address.
Talked with my brother, Daryl Wade, a firefighter who's been volunteering in Covington since Sunday at 2:30 PM CT today. He says things are changing there daily, sometimes hourly, and wants people to have current news--as well as a list of "Do's and Don'ts" before heading to Covington.
THE GOOD NEWS: Red Cross has named Camp Casey the best shelter in Louisiana for Katrina relief.
And then there is this post from the very technology geniuses who claim to be "supporting" the Red Cross's communication systems:

The initial WiFi system that was sent down to VFP was rejected for delivery by people unrelated to the VFP.
We need a new system and someone dedicated enough to actually install it and get things operational.
Please forward this to anyone in the field that could help.
And this, from the same thread:

There is power and computers and a satellite but we need the wifi. Just bring what you have if you can spare it. There are tech guys arriving on scene as we speak. Just find the Impeachment Bus Which is probably parked at
The Green Room
521 Boston Street
Covington, LA 70433
Or at least they'll know where it is.
Yep. They sure sound like the "best shelter" helping with Katrina relief. All you have to do is find them.
It appears the VFP is trying to "...hitch their wagon to a star..."
My dad and I saw their bus out around the school. My dad hates their guts. They disappeared from that spot sometime during the week.
Well, maybe the local DA will eventually invite these fraudsters to the Best Jail Facility in middle-class Covington.
"Where is law enforcement on this? Aren't laws being broken?"
The chief of police in Covington has said he can't arrest people for lying. But there is undoubtedly fraud involved.
The Red Cross are investigating. And the office of the Attorney General of Louisiana will be notified.
They need to be prosecuted for FRAUD. Surely their various misrepresentations have violated several statutes. Unfortunately, all officials who might have any jurisdiction have much more pressing things to worry about right now.....
Just what hurricane victims need, a bunch of rampaging leftie moonbats trying to exploit their suffering.
I know --- let's show mama shehag where da gator pits are down there in the delta!
She can become one with gaia!
Fyi ping on the "ditch *itch" trying to scam America's military!
I wonder if they got all those computers, monitors, digital cameras and iPods they were trying to mooch in the name of saving the Red Cross from destruction by the storm. The Red Cross should be bringing charges against these Leftist maggots.
Where is the MSM in reporting on this fraud during a time of crisis? Oh, I know they are too busy drumming up more fictitious and half-truth stories about how inept President Bush is. I can understand the local authorities having more pressing needs, but I thought the MSM loves a good fraud story, or is it only when it involves a person with a (R) after his name?
Fraud would be my first guess, but I'm not a legal expert.
That is almost funny .... as crooked as LA is the AG will probably cut himself in for a cut.
LOL! Now that Mother Sheehan is old news, it sounds like her and her troupe are really having to scrounge to get by...
Everybody has too much to do to bother with these surrender monkeys right now, so they are getting away with a lot of stuff. Sounds as though most people down there are catching on, though.
Yeah, the Justice Department is busy letting Sandy Berger skate!
This is true! They also provide a free snorkle for every BUSH KILLED MY SON $29.25 T-shirt bought in New Orleans!
