Disgraced East Grand Forks gypsy mayor Lynn Stauss has been run out of office and will leave in complete shame.

Steve Gander will replace Stauss as EGF mayor.

Lynn Stauss, along with his con artist brother Dan Stauss, and a band of local gypsies including EGF city attorney Ronald Galstad, was exposed after a secret society theft ring stole over one half million dollars in a scheme known as Boardwalk Enterprises.

Lynn Stauss caused great embarrassment to the small Northern Minnesota town’s residents that he and the gypsies betrayed.

East Grand Forks residents recall the embarrassing spectacle Lynn Stauss made after the gypsies got busted. Lynn Stauss quickly checked himself into a hospital with a fake medical problem and told the nurse he was too sick to take phone calls from the media.

East Grand Forks and Polk County, Minnesota is widely known for Valley News Live media investigations into ritualistic abuse of prisoners at the local police department and mysterious unsolved deaths.

Gander has expressed a love for the community.

Dear OLPR.

I am in receipt of your letter dated August 31, 2016.

Please accept this response as an AMENDMENT with clarifications to my complaint filed against Ronald I. Galstad on August 15, 2016.

I am amending my complaint as it pertains to Attorney Galstad providing ‘legal representation’ to Boardwalk Enterprises (hereby referred to as BOARDWALK).

While I still maintain GALSTAD provided legal advice to BOARDWALK, I stipulate it is very possible GALSTAD did not actually submit an actual bill to BOARDWALK for the legal services.

GALSTAD would not have submitted a bill for any services or advice provided because GALSTAD was aware he enjoyed a business and financial relationship with BOARDWALK that precluded him from acting as BOARDWALK’S attorney against the City of EGF.

Whether or not GALSTAD was the official attorney for BOARDWALK is wholly irrelevant because Conflict of Interest existed to the great detriment of GALSTAD’s client – the City of EGF.

As a licensed attorney in the State of Minnesota, governed by code and rule, GALSTAD automatically represented and advanced the legal interests of BOARDWALK during the May 7, 2014 meeting, and again at later times, because GALSTAD himself held/holds an existing legal relationship with BOARDWALK and its owners.

In fact – facts and circumstances show GALSTAD was actually a member of the BOARDWALK group at the time the unpaid loan was discovered.

GALSTAD should have, and was obligated to, recuse himself from any and all legal matters between BOARDWALK and the City of EGF; but he didn’t do it; he knowingly and deceptively proceeded onward despite Conflict of Interest.

GALSTAD remained involved in the legal affairs and on-going disputes between BOARDWALK and the City of EGF, which included a court case regarding the City Council’s legal ability to suspend BOARDWALK’S liquor license at the Boardwalk Complex if an agreement was not reached regarding the unpaid loan; a court case that went to the Minnesota Supreme Court.

BOARDWALK

The Boardwalk Entertainment Complex is a riverside business located in East Grand Forks, Minnesota. The complex was built with monies from an EDHA loan that became the center of the Boardwalk Enterprises, LLC scandal. In 2014 an audit discovered that not a single payment had ever been made on the $510,000 loan which was made a decade prior.

After the scandal broke in the news on April 30, 2014, the Grand Forks Herald reported “modification of mortgage and security agreement’ documents revealed that on March 1, 2002, East Grand Forks Mayor Lynn Stauss’ brother, Dan Stauss, was listed as a partner in the Boardwalk Enterprises business.

GALSTAD was the attorney for the City of East Grand Forks for most of the time this fraud against the city was perpetuated.

GALSTAD was the city attorney when the unpaid loan was discovered. The players in the scheme managed to avoid making the $30,000 monthly payments on the loan by neglecting to file a mortgage at the courthouse and making the paper trail of the loan disappear so payments would not be expected during internal audits.

The fraud translated to massive profits by all involved parties because while reaping in monthly profits at the Boardwalk Complex – no $30,000 monthly payments were required on the loan.

GALSTAD was part of BOARDWALK.

Additionally – when the story regarding the loan fraud scandal broke in the news on April 30, 2014, the specific unit in the Boardwalk Complex that presently houses Galstad, Jensen, and McCann P.A., was occupied by Altru Hospital in the photo published by the Herald. SEE ATTACHED

If the Herald photo was taken at that time; it would mean GALSTAD moved in to the Boardwalk Complex AFTER the load fraud scandal became known.

  1. GALSTAD’S EXISTING LEGAL RELATIONSHIP WITH BOARDWALK AT THE MAY 7, 2014 MEETING

At the time of the May 7, 2014 meeting, and at other times, GALSTAD held legal, business, and financial interests in BOARDWALK’s enterprises.

GALSTAD’s private law office, Galstad, Jensen, and McCann P.A., is physically located at the address of 411 2nd Street N.W, STE D, P.O. Box 386, East Grand Forks, Minnesota (The Boardwalk Complex).

Boardwalk Entertainment Group (Executive Director Jane Moss) is located at 415 2nd Street N.W., East Grand Forks, Minnesota, which is another suite in the Boardwalk Entertainment Complex where GALSTAD’S law office is located.

GALSTAD had a legal and business relationship with Dan Stauss (the mayor’s brother) and Jane Moss (and the other unidentified partners).

  1. CITY of EAST GRAND FORKS WAS A LEGAL ADVESARY OF BOARDWALK

GALSTAD had/has a legal relationship with BOARDWALK and its shadowy group of owners and actors that were simultaneously and deeply entangled in two legal disputes with the City of EGF:

    1. The unpaid EDHA loan to BOARDWALK
    2. The liquor license dispute with BOARDWALK BAR & GRILL
  1. OPEN MEETING LAW VIOLATION

Evidence shows GALSTAD arranged, presided over, and/or participated in secret and/or illegal meetings following the uncovering of the unpaid EDHA loan.

On May 7, 2014, GALSTAD broke from pattern and practice of City meetings being held at 600 Demers Avenue (City Hall) and arranged for a closed meeting to be held at GALSTAD’s private office in the Boardwalk Complex at 411 2nd Street with unidentified persons.

EGF City Administrator David Murphy, during a televised interview with WDAZ-TV said, “We met with representatives of Boardwalk Enterprises and their attorney.”

However – BOARDWALK did not even have an attorney yet. GALSTAD was the only attorney known to be at the meeting.

  1. EVIDENCE AND RECORDS SHOW BOARDWALK ENTERPRISES HAD NOT YET RETAINED AN ATTORNEY AS OF MAY 7, 2014

Following the May 7, 2014, meeting, EGF City Administrator David Murphy told news reporters “We met with representatives of Boardwalk Enterprises and their attorney.”

However, evidence and records show BOARDWALK did not retain an attorney until June 14, 2014.

On June 11, 2014, Prairie Business Magazine (and many other news outlets) reported, “The city of East Grand Forks is waiting for a recommendation from an attorney it hired to work on an unpaid $510,000 public loan, but it may have to act soon. “ [Brad]Sinclair, an attorney at Kaler Doeling who the City Council voted to hire last week, will also serve Boardwalk Enterprises with a request for a response. That will include a request for information on who the partners in the company are, and who is their legal representation, Murphy said.

As the EGF City Attorney, GALSTAD should have already taken the legal actions (e.g. served a Request for Response upon BOARDWALK) that Attorney Sinclair took on June 11, 2014; but he didn’t.

GALSTAD’S dereliction of duties and failures as the City’s attorney is without a doubt connected to the conflict of interest.

  1. BOARDWALK MEMBERS IDENTITIES UNKNOWN

In addition to Boardwalk having no official lawyer on May 7, 2014, evidence and records show the City of EGF did not even know the actual identity of the members of the BOARDWALK group at the time of the meeting (which appears to be a conundrum of logic considering city officials met with members of BOARDWALK).

Despite City of EGF’s professed lack of information regarding the identity of BOARDWALK’s members, and the fact BOARDWALK had no lawyer, GALSTAD, nonetheless, was able to arrange a closed meeting at his private office with un-identified persons.

At this meeting – GALSTAD and City officials, according to Murphy, “met with representatives of Boardwalk Enterprises and their attorney”.

Responding to a public records request, Murphy advised me in writing on July 27, 2016, “Representatives from the City Council and Staff met with officials from Boardwalk Enterprises on an informal basis to discuss the recently discovered Boardwalk loan. Therefore, no minutes or records were required or taken.”

Murphy referred to the May 7, 2014 meeting as a “closed session meeting”.

I assert that meeting was an illegal meeting overseen by GALSTAD for illegal purposes to the great disadvantage of his client – the citizens of East Grand Forks, Minnesota.

  1. GALSTAD’S COMPLETE ACCESS TO THE FILES

On May 27, 2014 Galstad gave a presentation to the EGF EDHA board during a public meeting. The presentation was a report of his internal investigation regarding the files connected to the BOARDWALK unpaid EDHA loan.

GALSTAD should not have had such access to the EDHA loan files and should not have conducted any investigation because he had a conflict of interest.

  1. CONFLICT OF INTEREST

Evidence exists and clearly shows there was a conflict of interest because the EGF city council took formal action regarding it.

On June 3, 2014, the Grand Forks Herald reported the City of East Grand Forks hired an attorney to handle matters regarding the outstanding Boardwalk loan. “This is just for removing any questions of conflict of interest or just to get a neutral third party to look at it,” [City Administrator David] Murphy said.

Administrator Murphy publically admitted/stated the EGF City Council knew there was a question of “conflict of interest” regarding GALSTAD and a “neutral third party” was needed.

GALSTAD’s misconduct was again in plain view because he should have advised his client, the City of EGF, immediately about the conflict. GALSTAD failed to do that and the City simply acted regarding the conflict of interest on its own.

  1. CONTINUED CONFLICT OF INTEREST

The following is re-stated in part from my original complaint.

Evidence shows the hiring of Attorney Sinclair to represent City of EGF regarding Boardwalk did not keep GALSTAD from being involved.

Two years later, on June 7, 2016, the Grand Forks Herald reported BOARDWALK filed a lawsuit against the City of EGF regarding Boardwalk Enterprises, which included allegations of “civil conspiracy”.

On Jun 7, 2016 GALSTAD (acting as EGF City Attorney) declined to turn a copy of the lawsuit over to the media upon request.

It should be noted that it appears the City of EGF no longer had an outside attorney representing the BOARDWALK matters, because GALSTAD told the Herald the lawsuit documents had been submitted to the League of Minnesota Cities for insurance purposes.

“And then the league, we’re anticipating, will assign it to an attorney to represent us,” Galstad told the Herald.

The Herald further reported on June 7, 2016 that Mark Anfinson, the attorney for the Minnesota Newspaper Association, said the city is “definitely required to provide a copy of the summons and complaint upon receipt, regardless of whether they’ve been filed with the court.” He cited a section of Minnesota’s Government Data Practices Act.

Therefore, GALSTAD, having received an official document/communication on behalf of the City of EGF from Boardwalk and their attorney, willfully refused to turn it over to the media.

Thus, GALSTAD was again engaging in blatant obstruction YEARS AFTER the City of EGF had replaced him (with Attorney Sinclair) due to CONFLICT OF INTEREST issues.

Galstad was clearly involved in negotiations regarding a pending settlement between BOARDWALK and the City of EGF.

On June 28, 2016, the Herald reported “City Attorney Ron Galstad cited a “short timeframe to draft up all the settlement documents to get approval.” The City Council met in a closed-door meeting Monday evening to discuss a possible settlement.

“We just weren’t able to do it, to finalize it today,” Galstad added. “There is a settlement agreement being drafted right now.”

On June 29, 2016 the Herald reported, “The council approved a settlement agreement that stipulates Boardwalk Enterprises, the entity that owns the commercial building at 415 Second St. N.W., and Boardwalk Bar and Grill pay $250,000 in cash. City staff members first said in April 2014 a $510,000 loan to Boardwalk Enterprises went unpaid for more than a decade.”

The Herald further reported, “In a joint news release, the city, the EDA, Boardwalk Enterprises and Boardwalk Bar and Grill said they were “pleased to announce that they have resolved all disputes between them.”

“The settlement is based on all parties recognizing the expense and risks of not bringing their disagreements to a close,” the brief statement added.

  1. CONCLUSION – GALSTAD SHOUD BE ORDERED TO PAY CITY OF EGF BACK ALL FEES BILLED  REGARDING BOARDWALK

Ronald Galstad owes the City of EGF all the fees he acquired while knowingly violating conflict of interest codes and other forms of misconduct and crimes during his improper involvement in the Boardwalk Enterprises loan fraud scheme.

Respectfully submitted,
Timothy Charles Holmseth

Complaint filed against East Grand Forks City Attorney for role in Boardwalk Enterprises money laundering scheme

1500 Landmark Towers
345 St. Peter Street
St. Paul, MN 55102-1218

Dear Board,

This complaint is against Attorney Ronald I. Galstad. Galstad is an attorney licensed to practice in the state of Minnesota. Galstad has a private practice that contracts to represent the City of East Grand Forks, Minnesota.

Clear and convincing evidence exists to show Galstad is in violation of; but not limited to:

  1. Rule 1.7: CONFLICT OF INTEREST; CURRENT CLIENTS
  2. Rule: 1.9: DUTIES TO FORMER CLIENTS
  3. Rule 1.11: SPECIAL CONFLICTS OF INTEREST FOR FORMER AND CURRENT GOVERNMENT OFFICERS AND EMPLOYEES
  4. Rule: 8.4: MISCONDUCT

STATEMENT

Evidence shows Attorney Ronald I. Galstad provided legal representation to Boardwalk Enterprises, Boardwalk Bar & Grill (hereby referred to as “Boardwalk”), and the City of East Grand Forks, Minnesota, at the very SAME time; in the SAME meeting; regarding the SAME matter.

On May 7, 2014 Galstad was the attorney for the City of East Grand Forks, Minnesota.
During a meeting held at his private law office located within the Boardwalk Complex at 411 2nd Street N.W., East Grand Forks, Minnesota, he provided legal representation to the City of East Grand Forks; while also providing legal representation to Boardwalk.

Boardwalk and City of EGF were adversaries during the meeting, and two years later Boardwalk filed a civil lawsuit against City of EGF.

The may 7, 2014 meeting was held in response to an audit that discovered Boardwalk had not repaid a loan from the East Grand Forks Economic Development and Housing Authority.

On April 30, 2014 the Grand Forks Herald reported “$510,000 loan from City of East Grand Forks to Boardwalk Enterprises goes unpaid for 10 years.”

OVERVIEW – THE BOARDWALK ENTERPRISES SCANDAL

The Boardwalk Enterprises scandal involves what was clearly fraud and financial crimes comprised of a conspiracy by public officials and well placed individuals (family, friends, etc.) to steal over one half million dollars of government money using a scheme devised to loan money from the Economic Development and Housing Authority (EDHA) that came from a federal Community Block Grant Fund; and then not pay it back.

The original plan was basic and simple – loan the money; use people on the inside of the city government (e.g. EDHA Director, City Attorney, etc.) to eliminate the paper trail and make all existence of the loan disappear so no payments would be required; then, use the money to build a huge lucrative entertainment complex in East Grand Forks called ‘The Boardwalk’ and become personally rich with profits.

Grand Forks Herald publication records show that in 2011 the building was owned by Dan Stauss; he is the brother of EGF Mayor Lynn Stauss.

The Boardwalk scandal was a highly publicized ongoing news story and troves of information can be found regarding the matter on the Web.

ILLEGAL MEETING and CRIMINIAL CONSPIRACY

On May 7, 2014 WDAZ-TV reported that David Murphy, administrator, City of EGF, told a reporter that city officials met with “representatives” of “Boardwalk Enterprises” and their “attorney”.

WDAZ reported the May 7, 2014 closed door meeting was held at the private office of EGF City Attorney Ronald Galstad (as opposed to EGF City Hall) at the Boardwalk complex to discuss the un-paid loan.

All available evidence shows Galstad was the ONLY attorney at the meeting between the two Parties.

In a letter dated July 27, 2016, responding to a public records request, Administrator Murphy told me the City of EGF did not keep minutes or a record of who attended the May 7, 2014 meeting because there was not a quorum present and it was an “informal” meeting.

The only attorney reported by WDAZ to be at the May 7, 2014 meeting was Galstad.

I allege Galstad was the attorney for BOTH the City of EGF and Boardwalk during the May 7, 2014 meeting.

The May 7, 2014 meeting was nothing less than criminal and conspiratorial activity by participants deeply involved in state and federal crimes.  The secret meeting, which clearly violated the Minnesota Open Meeting Law, involved proactive efforts of EGF City officials, City Attorney, and the City Administrator to form a game-plan how to avoid prosecution for fraud against the State of Minnesota and the U.S. government.

Records show the City of EGF city council knew the activity was illegal.

On May 27, 2014 Boardwalk requested all documents the City of EGF possessed regarding the un-paid $510,000 loan.

On May 27, 2014 Galstad gave a presentation to the EGF EDHA board during a public meeting. He gave a summary rundown of what his internal investigation had determined thus far regarding the un-paid loan. The fact-pattern exposed through Galstad’s presentation created enormous questions, because files showed crucial documentation regarding the loan simply did not exist – as if all traces of the loan had simply disappeared.

Essentially – Galstad had been allowed by the EGF city council and City Administrator to conduct an investigation of himself.

That fact is demonstrated by the actions of City of EGF city council on June 3, 2014.

On June 3, 2014 WDAZ reported the East Grand Forks city council voted to hire Attorney Brad Sinclair to represent EGF regarding the unpaid loan. Sinclair replaced Galstad for purposes of the ‘Boardwalk’ issue. “This is just for removing any questions of conflict of interest or just to get a neutral third party to look at it.” Administrator Murphy said.

The aforementioned action by the EGF city council and statement by Administrator Murphy to the media shows the City of EGF factually knew there was a ‘conflict of interest’ issue and Galstad was not a “neutral” party.

Therefore – between April 30, 2014 and June 3, 2014, the City of EGF (city council and staff) and Attorney Galstad factually knew there were conflict of interest issues and all Parties conspired to conceal that information from the public and law enforcement.

ATTORNEY GALSTAD REMAINED INVOLVED

Evidence shows the hiring of Attorney Sinclair to represent City of EGF regarding Boardwalk did not keep Galstad from being involved.

Two years later, on June 7, 2016, the Grand Forks Herald reported Boardwalk filed a lawsuit against the City of EGF regarding Boardwalk Enterprises.

On Jun 7, 2016 Ronald Galstad (acting as City Attorney) declined to turn a copy of the lawsuit over to the media and stated it had been submitted to the League of Minnesota Cities for insurance purposes.

“And then the league, we’re anticipating, will assign it to an attorney to represent us,” Galstad told the Herald.

The Herald further reported on June 7, 2016 that Mark Anfinson, the attorney for the Minnesota Newspaper Association, said the city is “definitely required to provide a copy of the summons and complaint upon receipt, regardless of whether they’ve been filed with the court.” He cited a section of Minnesota’s Government Data Practices Act.

Therefore, Galstad, having received an official document/communication on behalf of the City from Boardwalk and their attorney, refused to turn it over to the media. Thus – he is engaging in blatant obstruction while continuing to attempt to create the false appearance that he is not involved.

Evidence show Galstad was HEAVILY involved.

Galstad was clearly involved in negotiations regarding a pending settlement.

On June 28, 2016, the Herald reported “City Attorney Ron Galstad cited a “short timeframe to draft up all the settlement documents to get approval.” The City Council met in a closed-door meeting Monday evening to discuss a possible settlement.

“We just weren’t able to do it, to finalize it today,” Galstad added. “There is a settlement agreement being drafted right now.”

On June 29, 2016 the Herald reported, “The council approved a settlement agreement that stipulates Boardwalk Enterprises, the entity that owns the commercial building at 415 Second St. N.W., and Boardwalk Bar and Grill pay $250,000 in cash. City staff members first said in April 2014 a $510,000 loan to Boardwalk Enterprises went unpaid for more than a decade.”

The Herald further reported, “In a joint news release, the city, the EDA, Boardwalk Enterprises and Boardwalk Bar and Grill said they were “pleased to announce that they have resolved all disputes between them.”

“The settlement is based on all parties recognizing the expense and risks of not bringing their disagreements to a close,” the brief statement added.

GALSTAD IS PAID

On August 7, 2016 the Herald  reported, “The legal costs detailed in the city spreadsheet show $33,142.12 was paid to the Kaler Doeling law firm, from which the city hired attorney Brad Sinclair, as well as $25,117.99 to City Attorney Ron Galstad. Another $10,444.85 was labeled under “appraisal and consulting.”

Galstad was actually paid fees to commit and conceal felonies.

Galstad has defrauded the local tax-payers as well as the state and federal government.

The “risks” that were noted by the City and Boardwalk are concerns over criminal prosecution for fraud by involved public officials.

The actors in this crime have not been required to pay back over a quarter of a million dollars from the original $510,000 that was stolen from the taxpayers from government funds.

The settlement agreed upon required Boardwalk to pay $250,000.

However, nearly $70,000 in legal fees were paid out by the victim-public-taxpayers to the predator government officials to pay for attorneys – including an attorney (Galstad) who was/is involved in the crimes.

The ‘settlement’ is illegal because upon an investigation, the true facts and circumstances surrounding the ‘settlement’ shows both Parties used a ‘settlement’ to avoid criminal prosecution.

Galstad is deeply involved in state and federal crimes that warrant a thorough investigation, which I am hereby requesting.

Respectfully submitted,

Boardwalk Enterprises: Secret Society members want to be compensated for committing criminal fraud

EGF citizens and taxpayers are the bad guys

by Timothy Charles Holmseth on June 10, 2016, 12:09 P.M. CST

What is love? Puppies? Candy?

Shriner Kid

‘Just $510,000 from people like you, can help build a huge profitable complex called Boardwalk Bar and Grill for people like me’

EGF Mayor Lynn Stauss

EGF Mayor Lynn Stauss

Polk County court records show a Notice of Filing was entered on June 9, 2016, for a lawsuit filed by Boardwalk Enterprises LLP, Boardwalk Bar and Grill LLC. vs. The City of East Grand Forks, Minnesota, East Grand Forks Economic Development and Housing Authority of East Grand Forks.

Judge Jeff Remick has been assigned to the case.

Jon R. Brakke is listed as the attorney for Boardwalk. The City of EGF is listed as PRO SE.

BOARDWALK ENTERPRISES SCHEME FOR DUMMIES

Here’s what happened.

Public officials and secret society members conspired to enrich themselves by taking out a government loan and then using men/women on the inside, including the Economic Housing and Development Director (and his married girlfriend in the EGF office) and City Attorney to make the loan disappear from the record.

They used the money to build a swanky and very profitable facility called the Boardwalk complex. Neither side of the now filed court case ever said a word about the loan payments that were not being made.

They all thought they were real cute during their private meetings.

And a decade passed.

EVEN A SIX YEAR OLD…

Even an intelligent six year-old can understand that after a person takes out a very large bank loan, the person that loaned the money knows they are supposed to be making regular payments on the loan.

Nobody involved in the criminal fraud said anything because they were all going to financially benefit – it was free money.

EXAMPLE CO-CONSPIRATOR – RONALD GALSTAD

One example of a conspirator in the Boardwalk Enterprises scheme is EGF City Attorney Ronald Galstad. He is still the City Attorney even though he was involved in the original scheme and re-located his law firm’s office into the Boardwalk complex.

Galstad is on both sides.

He is on the City of EGF side as the city’s attorney- and he is (secretly) one of the conspirators that hid the paperwork so they would not have to pay the loan back.

The EGF city council sits around and acts like that’s just fine, which might provide some insight into who else might be involved.

Galstad should be disbarred from law practice and criminally charged with the felonies he has committed.

EGF MAYOR

Mayor Lynn Stauss conspired with his family and others to steal the money and get rich. They are un-charged felons and should be arrested.

Instead – taxpayers will have to fund a defense against a lawsuit against the City brought by warring co-conspirators that are elected officials and paid employees of that very same City.

They couldn’t solve the problem during their secret society meetings so now they want you, the tax payers, to pay them some more money for “defaming” them and being “malicious”.

Boardwalk Enterprise lawsuit against EGF just another perception-deception?

Did Vogel Law Firm ‘serve’ a ‘draft’ version of civil lawsuit to City of EGF?

by Timothy Charles Holmseth on June 9, 2016, 11:44 A.M. CST

Has the City of East Grand Forks been served with a real lawsuit; or is it yet another perception-deception by organized criminals that cannot solve their loan fraud scheme problem during their secret society meetings?

Is the Complaint served upon the City of EGF by Vogel Law Firm only a draft – thus, carrying no legal weight whatsoever?

It’s a valid question.

SONY DSC

Although the Complaint is written by Attorney Jon Brakke in legal format – it contains no case number, case type, or name of an assigned judge. VIEW DOCUMENT

EGF City Administer David Murphy confirms the document was in fact ‘served’. “It was served by a process server,” Murphy said.

If the lawsuit is valid or carried through upon – it’s simply organized crime members that stole money from taxpayers in a loan fraud scheme; now attempting to sue the taxpayers they already robbed once.

Vogel Law Firm was contacted for comment but did not respond by the time of publication.

Whistleblower(s): Public deceived at local news stands about drug trafficking and murder

Television Station Employee: “Mike Jacob that used to run the Herald – he’s a drug user. He uses cocaine”

by Timothy Charles Holmseth

According to multiple whistleblowers, including one from a regional television station, the public has been systematically deceived at news stands across the region regarding very serious matters.

Murder, drug trafficking, prisoner abuse, sex orgies, and widespread debauchery are all commonplace as cover-ups are conducted to protect specific individuals in high places.

The deception includes calculated manipulation of the published message regarding drug trafficking and other serious risks to public safety.

The sources say local media has a hand in it.

According to recent headlines in The Grand Forks Herald and The Fargo Forum, drug trafficking, human trafficking, prostitution, gang activity, street crimes, and overdose deaths are serious issues law enforcement is facing.

However, while the headlines are powerful, the substance of the content often goes no deeper than an unseen agenda.

According to the whistleblower(s), the public is not getting the whole truth, because the media is not telling the public the whole story. And the reason the whole story is not being told involves criminal activity that includes drugs, sex, and murder.

“Mike Jacob that used to run the Herald – he’s a drug user. He uses cocaine,” the source said.

Jacobs is the former publisher of the Grand Forks Herald, and presently works as an opinion columnist for the Herald.

The amount of published content governed and edited by Jacobs is beyond calculation.

The whistleblowers discussed matters involving both Grand Forks, North Dakota, and East Grand Forks, Minnesota.

“The city attorney was using drugs – and the mayor,” the source said.

“And the present mayor now, he’s got a relative that was selling drugs; I think he still is. The big shots around here have been using drugs and shit for years,” the source said.

Multiple whistleblowers say murders are being covered up.

According to the files of the United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and FBI there are confidential informants that have infiltrated the local drug trafficking and crime ring.

One name mentioned is Karl Lindquist, former city attorney for East Grand Forks. Lindquist was the attorney for EGF when the scandal known as Boardwalk Enterprises first began.

Lindquist, who was also employed as EGF city administrator, reported local government news for the East Grand Forks Exponent (despite three local colleges with aspiring writers and reporters anxious to get their feet wet). He also provided opinion column’s for the Herald.

Rollin and Julie Bergman, co-publishers of The Exponent, published a chronological timeline of events regarding the Boardwalk Enterprises scandal. The timeline was composed by present EGF City Attorney Ronald Galstad and published as a defacto affidavit.

Upon close examination it appears the Bergman’s were attempting to assist Galstad and Lindquist in their efforts to deceive the public. The timeline was cleverly written out of order in multiple spots, and appears to implicate Lindquist in the Boardwalk Enterprises scheme. Despite being contacted, the Bergman’s refuse to issue a clarification or correction on the matter.

Tales of decadence regarding Lindquist and other public officials are disturbing.

According to whistleblower sources, Lindquist was involved with the drug community and there is a video of him having sex with a drug addict. She was “f@#!#@g him. There’s a video out some place of it,” the source said.

According to the source, a local chief of police was also acting in such a manner. “She was giving him bl#@#$@s right in public and everything else,” the source said.

Write Into Action continues to investigate.

Police officer that shot David Elliot receiving legal advice from newly retired Grand Forks County prosecutor Peter Welte

Jerad Braaten, the UND police officer that shot David James Elliot, is receiving legal advice from Peter Welte, the former chief prosecutor in Grand Forks County.

Braaten’s legal representation has been secured by the Fraternal Order of Police.

Welte announced his resignation abruptly in December, 2014, sending a letter to the Grand Forks County Commission saying he was leaving the county to venture into private practice with Vogel Law Firm. He also submitted an application for a district judge position in November, 2014, which he withdrew.

Welte provided no explanation for his resignation, other than to say he had received an offer by Vogel Law Firm to go back into private practice, which gave him more flexibility and “security for my family”.

BOARDWALK ENTERPRISES

Vogel Law Firm is representing Boardwalk Enterprises.

The Boardwalk Enterprises loan-fraud money-laundering scheme was exposed in April, 2014, after the Grand Forks Herald reported over half a million dollars had gone missing amidst a scheme that involved an unpaid loan through the EGF EDHA.
