Meet the Man Who Has Been Battling Romney and Bain’s Bankruptcy Fraud for 12 Years

Last edited Sun Nov 25, 2012, 03:30 PM - Edit history (3)

Source: PoliticusUSA.com (and reporter Rmuse)

There is something appealing to human beings about a small individual taking on a powerful adversary, and most people are aware of the David and Goliath story where a small insignificant boy took on and defeated a powerful giant because his unwavering faith gave him courage and conviction that right would overcome might. For the past eleven-and-a-half years, one American with unwavering faith in the judicial system has taken on a modern day giant without respite based on a belief that justice is due diligence and that in America, right overcomes might. However, in this circumstance, the system that exists to ensure justice prevails has conflated power with right and gave an already powerful giant a wall of separation from the law, and yet one small individual continues battling for justice against a behemoth.

As an eToys executive, Haas had a legal and fiduciary responsibility to report his discoveries to eToys estate managers and lawyers, and instead of gratitude for doing his job well, he was asked to betray his client for the sake of his future in the liquidation business. When Haas refused the offer to look the other way and allow eToys to be gutted and sold to Bain Capital for free, a Bain Capital surrogate installed his business partner and co-conspirator in other bankruptcies to replace Haas, and colluded to annul a court-approved contract to pay him. As an officer of the court, and 18 USC § 4 – Misprision of felony, Mr. Haas, having knowledge of the commission of a felony had a duty, as soon as possible, to make known the same to some judge or other person in civil authority and if he failed to do so, he risked being fined or imprisoned not more than three years, or both. Haas fulfilled his legal duty and reported the malfeasance to the proper authorities.

Shortly after reporting the crimes, in August 2001, George W. Bush appointed another Bain Capital lawyer as U.S. Attorney and he refused to investigate or prosecute the crimes throughout his tenure; despite the U.S. and former Bain attorney’s malfeasance, Haas continued fighting for eToys shareholders and to bring the criminals to justice. During his long battle, Haas discovered attorneys representing the creditors and debtors worked for the same giant (Bain Capital) in the eToys bankruptcy and committed perjury by deliberately failing the mandate to disclose conflict of interest. In what can conservatively be called racketeering, fraud on the court, and miscarriage of justice, the court failed to prosecute or report the crimes then, and continues protecting Bain Capital and its surrogates as recently as last week when the eToys judge postponed a hearing to remove the fraudulent eToys manager in another curious miscarriage of justice.

Due diligence means making every effort to find and rectify problems in business or criminal situations, and Haas fulfilled that role as eToys executive and officer of the court, and for eleven-and-a-half years he has continued as a private citizen. No-one can ever accuse Haas of not fighting for a fair resolution that satisfies shareholders, creditors, and debtors in the eToys bankruptcy, and for his trouble the court protected Bain Capital’s surrogates and helped thwart his efforts in spite of confessions of perjury, corruptions, and fraud giving the appearance the court has no interest in justice.

This is not and should not be a story about Laser Haas.

I wish someone else had posted this.

However, my hearing that the Delaware Federal System of Justice is trying to bury - so that Mitt Romney/ Bain Capital does not get investigated - is on December 4, 2012 at 10:30 a.m.

Being that we want to get the White House Petition signed as much as we can by then;
I'm doing what I shouldn't do - and reporting my own story.


Again - it is NOT about me......it is about Mitt Romney's organized crimes that need to be halted.

- for I am only doing the job I was hired to do. What is going on here - is tyranny, cronyism and federal corruption that is benefiting the organized criminal empire. In the past - I told them I would gladly give up everything they owed me - if they would just do the right thing. They laughed me to scorn and stated "We've already taken everything you were owed and more".

So, Mitt Romney and Laser Haas are "ALL IN" at the final table/ battle of their lives. Prior to this time, Mitt Romney believed he was going to become POTUS and be able to 'handpick' his very own Attorney General of the United STates and be able to bury the case. This is because the former U.S. Attorney (Colm Connolly), already provided proof that corruption works well for Goldman Sachs and Bain Capital. As U.S. Attorney, Colm failed to disclose that he was a Bain Capital law firm partner. http://www.justice.gov/archive/olp/colmconnollyresume.htm

Where for seven (7) years (his entire tenure in office) - United States Attorney Connolly - buried any investigation and/or prosecution into Mitt Romney/ Bain Capital etc and their cohorts in crimes (even after MNAT and Paul Traub confessed to intentional fraud & 34 acts of Perjury). Now the corrupt federal system of justice still seeks to bury the case. Please help (if you have not already) by signing our White House Petition calling for an investigation into Mitt Romney/ Bain Capital?

After all - is the request for an honorable investigation too much to ask for?



WHITE HOUSE PETITION LINK
https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/request-dept-justice-open-investigation-mitt-romney-bain-capital-retroactive-issues-etoys-2001/GxJX3qvX?utm_source=wh.gov&utm_medium=shorturl&utm_campaign=shorturl






Background of Bain Capital/ eToys Perjury & Fraud



    In 1999 eToys went IPO with Goldman Sachs and the stock soard to $85 - but eToys received less than $20

  • November 2000 - Wells Fargo loaned eToys $40 million

  • March 6, 2001 - after transacting more than $100 million - the Wells Fargo loan was closed

  • eToys filed Bankruptcy on March 7, 2001.

  • www.MNAT.com lied about its connections to Bain Capital and Goldman Sachs to become eToys attorney

  • Paul Traub lied about his connections to Goldman Sachs, Wells Fargo and Bain Capital to become Creditors attorney

  • MNAT and Mr. Traub then place Paul Traub's partner inside eToys as President/CEO

  • Laser Haas refuses their bribe (to become Bain's partner)

  • MNAT submits a (forgery) to the Federal Court - telling the Judge Laser Haas waives his right to be paid

  • In Delaware, MNAT represents (secretly) - both Goldman Sachs & Bain Capital

  • Mitt Romney own's stage stores and Michael Glazer was his director, Barry Gold assist Director who hired Paul Traub

  • eToys was sold to Bain Capital for less than pennies on the dollar to Kay Bee/ Michael Glazer

  • It takes several years to find the proof of Perjury & Fraud;which forced Paul Traub and MNAT to confess

  • US Trustee, having no authority to do so, gives MNAT & Traub (illegal) immunity

  • In 2007, Laser Haas learns that US Attorney (Colm Connolly) is partner with Bain Capital law firm MNAT

  • Crimes & Corruption are reported to Dept of Justice Public Corruption Task Force

  • GWB's Navy Pilot buddy (Tom O'Brien) as US Attorney - Shuts DOWN Public Corruption Task Force
    career Assistant U.S. Attorneys are Threatened to Keep their Mouths SHUT

    http://articles.latimes.com/2008/mar/20/local/me-shakeup20

  • Laser Haas files a brief in Wilmington DE Fed BK Court to bring this to public's attention
    Court & Clerk illegally withhold the Mitt Romney/ Bain Capital litigation until the election is over

    update Saturday morning November 24th.

    THANK YOU ALL - VERY MUCH

    We now have the bare minimum of signatures
    that our Petition is viewable on the White House page.

    HOWEVER - the job is NOT done - we need 24,000 more signatures
    to get an answer from the White House.


    ANYbody with any ideas on how to get the other 24,000 signatures - Please Advise?

    And I've got a VERY BIG surprise for them next week.

    Appreciate helping me nail this crooks by their proverbials



    XOXOXOXOX

51. In that case - "BlueToTheBone' - both are apropos

They most definitely had deliberateness in their bad faith (ebol) intents

and

It was "stupid" to stiff me - simply because they had the powers as crooks to do so.


The arrogance (of running for POTUS - when you are a crook)

- is most likely going to lead to their downfall.

10. Two comments

The story is about selective prosecution and protecting corporations and bigwigs. Second, the bankruptcy happen around the same time Enron, and Worldcom were up to no good as well.

I hope he brings down Bain, but it seems unlikely.

15. If we ever find a honorable (Eliot Ness type) Prosecutor - BAIN will be RICO'd

The reality is - Goldman Sachs and others share the wealth

Romney only shares with the Mormon Church and puts his cash off shore.
(he doesn't share it around - like a prudent man should)

His hubris may turn out to be his end (and Bain Capital's).

18. I signed but I can't be optimistic about DoJ action.

For a newly re-elected Obama to order, approve, or countenance an investigation that touched so closely on his defeated rival would strike many people as retribution (regardless of the facts of the case).

I'm guessing that Obama's political advisors would tell him, "Go after any other corporate crooks in the country before you go after Romney."

Of course, there are plenty of other such targets, and DoJ hasn't gone after them, either.

Keep hiding more and more because your work is so important.

So many of the great toy stores went under during that time. I wonder how many were ruined in the same way. We were a supplier for so many that went under during the same time. We went from a great little factory to outsourcing in about 2 years after all that.

31. mittens and the four felony rule

Thomas Jeff would probably advocate that no person who ought to be tried and convicted on four or more felonies shall be elected president (or allowed to run).

He lived in his son's basement so he could vote? Yeah, right...

Your mission should you decide to accept it, name the other three...

And sadly, what Rmoney figured out in terms of Bain's malfeasance, is now pretty much Standard Operating Procedure in terms of Big Business.

And Big Business owns even more members of the Political Class than back in 1990.

39. The biggest mistake Mitt Romney ever made was running for president

If he would have stayed out of the spotlight his corruption would never have been known.

If I was Obama I would appoint a federal prosecutor to investigate quietly. After the 2014 election, hand down indictments.

78. There's a reason we should wait

In November 2014 comes the next midterm election.

If we punish Romney now the right wing nut cases will claim the president is retaliating against Romney for the sin of challenging him in the presidential election. Oh, and we don't have any evidence, we're just going after him for trying to unseat Obama. The Mighty Wurlitzer will play the Retaliation Song for the next two years, and there'll be a whole new bunch of RW assholes who promise to impeach Obama for retaliating against the poor sweet innocent Romney, and to write a bunch of anti-retaliation laws.

If we punish Romney between "now" and the 2014 election, see the last paragraph.

Punishing Romney after the 2014 election does two things for us: it cuts off the "retaliation" crap at the knees, and it allows investigators to prepare a case so strong and watertight you could make a submarine door out of it.

Karl Rove, OTOH, should be indicted now. There is enough strong, and public, evidence against the bastard that it would be no problem finding twenty or thirty charges you could definitely get to stick...and with Rove I really recommend prosecuting him like they did Al Capone. When Eliot Ness went after Capone he came up with a LOT of good solid charges against him--income tax, Volstead Act violations, Mann Act violations (one of Capone's first jobs in the underworld was running a whorehouse that straddled a state line--Illinois-Indiana, I believe. When the cops from one state came to raid it, Capone would quickly get everyone into the state the cops were not from. Why in hell someone from the Illinois State Police never set up a joint raid with the Indiana State Police I do not know.), murder charges, racketeering, just so much stuff. But because Capone was a danger to the public if left at large Ness's purpose was to throw Al Capone in jail for anything they could get to stick; therefore, they were prepared to bring new charges into court until they got a conviction, and started with tax evasion--which got them a conviction on their first go-round. Rove never bootlegged and he never, so far as we know, actually killed anyone, but he's left a trail of slime behind him you could slide the Empire State Building to Massachusetts on, and somewhere in there is a couple hundred years worth of prison time should someone choose to accept the challenge.

65. It's ALL true - 'navarth' - All the Proof is within Public Records

Including their confessions to "intentional" fraud & perjury

(the key word "mens rea"/scienter) - are the facts they admitted deceiving the court was deliberate.

There's no greater (civil) crime - than Fraud on the Court by Officers of the Court

(See In re Hazel Atlas Glass v Hartford Empire (U.S. Sup Ct 1944(

Cases closed for 9 years - are reopened - because those "inside" the system;
can NOT abuse their position of trust for bad faith gains.

There's NO Statute of Limitations on Fraud on the Court by OFFICERS of the Court
(attorneys become "officers" of the court - when they are granted their 'pro hac vice' to appear before the court)

115. No, just make an OP, with signatures needs for petition, and a link to this OP.

There are no Hosts of that group at this time to ask questions about. To make sure it's okay with the Admins, you might contact them directly. I don't think there would be any blowback in the legal sense. Go to this link to see how to do it:

http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=contact

Another idea just hit me. The UAW and the AFL-CIO are fighting this business model and what it's doing to the country.

Have you contacted any unions about this?

I doubt those were union workers that lost their jobs, but it's the same cause. Perhaps the union might have forced something, organized while it was in process to gain attention before it was done by Bain, maybe even a buy out.
