Anyone else have a flag raised by this sentence from Clays earlier post? It sure stood out to me!!
Some time ago, through John Booth, I offered to try and obtain some pro bono (or at least reasonably priced) legal representation, but was told that the SAM already had counsel.
They (and who are they anyway?) sure didn't seem to have a problem turning down Clay and his generous offer on the spot. Anyone ever heard of having too much legal representation backing you? Who is their legal counsel, and what are they charging relative to what Clay might have obtained for them? Are they related to someone on the board? For an organization that is so concerned (and should be) about its funds, Id sure think they would thoroughly explore all their options. And maybe they have, but who knows. If they expect people to donate their hard earned money, the least we should expect is for them to allocate and spend it wisely.
Surely some of the S.A.M. officers must read this forum and could put ALL these questions to rest, right? If the answers are honest, and make good common sense, it can only benefit us all and increase donations.
If these simple questions make them defensive, or worse silent, be wary.
Something smells a little funny here and it's not coming from the contaminated magic!!!
