209. Hank Asher, head of Seisint & DBT (Choice Point sub.)
Edited on Sun Feb-26-06 06:09 PM by Marie26
This guy seems to be the center of it all. He was the former head of DBT (ChoicePoint), which is the company that purged the Fla. voter rolls in 2000. In 1999, he created Seisint, another data-mining company, and created the Matrix data-mining program to flag suspected terrorists. Seisint was later sold to Reed Elsevier (Lexis-Nexis owner) in 2004. Asher resigned from Seisint in 2003 amid rumors of ties to drug smuggling.

"Seisint Inc., is a Boca Raton, Fla., company founded by a millionaire, Hank Asher, who stepped down from its board of directors last year after revelations of past ties to drug smugglers."

Boca Raton, Fla. That's really ringing a bell. Isn't that where Jack Abramoff was operating from? Abramoff is someone else who seemed to rise from nobody to Republican superpower after the 2000 election.
