Mr. Rees,

 

What you state is true -- afterall, there have been folks without higher education who have served successfully on the Council, and folks who have been convicted of crimes. The question however lies where you have made claims about your past that don't add up.

 

For example, your claimed employment history has holes and questions (does IDC manage 18 clinics as you stated once, or 'about 22 clinics' as you stated recently on DCist?), your claimed educational history doesn't add up (did you go to Columbia, NYU or an oversees school?), you have claimed to have no children, two children, three children (twins and not twins) and now three children and a foster child, which would mean 4 children.

 

Online you claim to be unmarried. Then you claim to be married, with a deceased wife. What about your ex-wife who is not deceased?

 

When you cannot be straightforward about issues that you have posted and talked about, and then deleted and retracted, how can anyone focus on your ideas and vision as a candidate?

 

You raised the issue of your personal life by virtue of your children, Jason, Anita and Gabriella posting online on your behalf. Your wife and campaign manager, Mindy Silverman Rees has posted on-line. On your early website, which is available on-line in cached form, you mention your family, your wife, etc. However, other posts by you, or your supporters have contradicted your claims. However, you have retracted much of this in later versions of your website.

 

You raised the issue of your educational history by virtue of claims of graduation years for NYU and Columbia. This has been retracted from your website.

 

You raised the issue of your employment history with claims of Alba Foods, etc. However, cahced versions of recruitment letters and resumes do not jibe with what you posted on your website.

If you need to know the history or business activities of Institutional Dental Care, Inc., then you can always pick up the telephone and give them a call.

 

Alba Food is owned by Royal Ahold the Dutch based food conglomerate that owns also Giant Foods.

 

Unless my name clearly appears in the posting, I did not post it.

Nice IP anonymizing proxy service ya got there, by the way!

 

 

Also, the posts entitle "Multiple Alias Disorder" and "More Proof" on the DC Politics board tell me, other voters and journalists all we need to know about who's been posting what here. Respond however you want, but it's all there in black and white, and clearly understandable by people who know about the IP addresses and the like.

 

This, I predict, will get Response F ("It's not true! ")

It is way too easy to accuse but difficult to prove.

 

Again, show me a letter from my ISP that locks me in and you have a case but otherwise, the jury must aquit because there is more than reasonable doubt.
