Unity08 Silent on Transparency and Ethics Questions
- It has been two days since I asked the Unity08 leadership to sign on to a safe money pledge:
SAFE MONEY PLEDGE
We pledge that no Unity08 corporate leader, member of the Unity08 Foundersâ€™ Council, or member of the Unity08 Rules Committee will pursue or accept payment or other compensation for any work in the campaign of a Unity08 nominee, or for work in the administration of a Unity08 White House.
- It has now been five days since I responded to Unity08’s invitation for me to profile its small donors of less than $200. I have not received the information necessary to do so.
- It has now been five days since I asked for clarification on a donation to Unity08 that lacked complete disclosure:
A $5,000 contribution in the 4th Quarter from Jeffrey S. Deutschman does not list an employer or an occupation, which the IRS seems to require. Is this the same Jeffrey S. Deutschman who is part of the investment firm Deutschman Clayton & Company? If not, what is this Jeffrey S. Deutschman’s employer and/or occupation?
I have not received this information, which is required to be publicly disclosed by the IRS.
I will continue to count the days.
