$100,000 Reward Offered

VELVETREVOLUTION LAUNCHES 'GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTABILITY REWARD FUND'

$100,000 REWARD FOR INFORMATION LEADING TO THE ARREST AND CONVICTION OF CORRUPT GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS


VR today launches the 'Government Accountability Reward Fund' to induce whistleblowers to come forward with information about criminal activity by high government officials. Specifically, VR has a reward of up to $100,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of officials involved in the following three incidents: 1) the illegal outing of CIA Agent Valerie Plame, 2) the illegal payment of bribes to Congressman Dennis Hastert, and 3) the rigging of the 2004 Presidential election in Ohio. In the event more than one person provides information or information about more than one incident, the money will be split between the persons.

The information provided must be new and not previously provided to the press or government entity or official. The information must be verifiable and be a major contributing factor in the arrest and conviction of the government official(s). In the case of the Valerie Plame, the evidence must implicate and convict a senior White House official. In the case of Dennis Hastert, the evidence must implicate and convict him. In the case of Ohio, the evidence must implicate and convict persons who actually and knowingly rigged the 2004 Presidential election in such a way that it changed the true outcome.

There have been credible news reports that senior White House officials conspired to and did knowingly and intentionally disclose the identity of Valerie Plame. Other news reports have indicated that Dennis Hastert took bribes from foreign interests and hid those bribes through political action committees. Moreover, many news reports have stated that persons rigged the election in Ohio to favor the Republicans, and now top Republican officials are under investigation and indictment in Ohio for corrupt practices.

VR believes that, if these reports are true, there are upstanding American citizens who have important information which could verify them. VR wants these people to come forward, and this reward is an incentive to do so.

If a person desires confidentiality, please say so and we will honor that request. However, we must be able to verify the information provided and documentation is preferred. Send information to reward at velvetrevolution.us.

2. Unfortunately, the GOP tips the pizzaman $100,000
We need Soros to put up some serious money. A year's salary isn't going to be enough for a guy to take a bullet in the head. They have to make sure his/her family will be well taken care of after he/she mysteriously disappears on a dark road one night.

3. Ohio .............I bet the average yearly salary in Ohio isn't near this
amount.......don't forget Ohio has so many people out of work, they aren't counting them anymore! So, $100,000 may not seem like alot to you but to a part time election worker or a volunteer poll worker, it may mean alot. I agree I would like to see a higher enticement.

Also, people who blow the whistle can protect themselves by filing Affidavits prior to becoming known to the public. I don't think the intent of the reward is to scare off possible whistleblowers, and I doubt very seriously that VR would leak the name prior to ensuring the informant files the proper Affidavits.

So, let the information come pouring in, don't try to deter it with scare tactics, please.

5. Sorry Atman
Just that when I read your comments it struck me that if anyone would happen to be reading that is thinking of coming forward, they may change their mind. It was out of character for me to criticize. Please accept my apologies.
