Marsha Sets The Record Straight Fwd: The last word on thisissue
---------- Forwarded message ----------From: <nofearcoalition@aol.com>Date: Wed, May 23, 2012 at 9:26 AMSubject: Re: The last word on this issueTo:nofearcoalition@aol.com
Dear friends and colleagues, two days ago people who I do not know and have never met sent out a series of e-mails to my personal email list. I was contacted by thesetwo people two weeks ago and that is the extent of my relationship with them.Thanks for your very kind words of support and encouragement.I have no idea how they gained access to my personal e-address book. Please ignoreany future correspondence from them. Please see my response below. Marsha--Evy and David, I wish to state for the record that I have never met you and don't knowyou. I only came to know of your organization in the last two weeks.The e-mails of the last few days have been very disturbing and utterly shameful.Perhaps, more appalling is the fact that it seems that my personal e-mail addresseshave been hacked. I will request an investigation into the invasion of my privacy. It is public record that the No Fear Coalition spearheaded the passage of the No Fear  Act 10 years ago. It is also public record that the No Fear Coalition and the No FEARInstitute (under the leadership of former Congressman Walter Fauntroy) were theconveners of the first two Whistleblower Weeks in Washington in which a No Fear Data Report was issued focusing on the performance of various agencies. This datawas analyzed and collated by members of our coalition who worked assiduously in

generating data that resulted in the publication of the No Fear Report Card. The NoFEAR Institute issued its latest No FEAR Data Report yesterday during thewhistleblower conference in Washington, DC.We have not required your assistance in the past nor will we have need of your inputin the future.  At no time did I give you the impression that you or David were the first to generateNo FEAR data. Two weeks ago, I was pleased to learn of your interest in No FEARData. I have since come to regret my naiveté in light of the apparent hidden agenda.For your information, the government has been reluctant to provide No Fear data. It isonly through the sacrifice, including firing, illness and deaths of dedicated No Fear Coalition members that we have the data that you now characterize asplagiarism. This data is not proprietary to any organization. In a free democraticsociety any citizen has the right to request information under FOIA.No rational mind would attribute a request by any citizen or organization asplagiarism.I consider your e-mails as defaming and they should cease immediately. I have no interest in working with you or David and will consider any further contact asharassment. Marsha

Evy and David:I have never shied away from the truth or what I think is right. I am engaging myself because it is the right thing to do even though I hate to waste energy on all thenegativism that does nothing but waste time from the serious problems involved in civilrights and whistle blowing. The politicking and in-fighting are horrible among some of the groups that are supposed to helping complainants and whistle blowers. I reallydon't know either of you having just seen a few emails over the past two weeks.I think attacking people via email is inappropriate, unless you have a hidden agenda,it's way out of line. So far Tom and Marsha have been attacked, so the onlyquestion is who is next on your agenda?I believe you both owe Marsha an apology that should be sent to all the people youemailed and blind carbon-copied in an effort to destroy her credibility and standingamong her colleagues. I dislike this type of behavior intensely having observed it inmany ineffective communities and organizations over the years.Unfortunately, I believe you have gone off the deep end without adequate information. Iwas unwell for several days, along with taking care of some of the conference details,so I did not address any of my emails. I am going to address each matter you raisedand be done with it:1. We thought either you or David would be attending some of the sessions and woulddefinitely be at the Press Conference session held today. Evy, you may not recall,but you said that you were going to try to come to DC for the conference, but sinceyou are in California, you understandably may not come, but David would be there togive your report on HHS. At no time did I or Marsha ask you to come and spend your money to do so, as you suggested in one of your emails. We fully expected David tocome, but he also said he had a prior commitment. We did not cut anyone out of Blog Archive
doing anything. 2. Since neither of you were able to attend, I personally added the following into myspeech,
"Recently, two advocacy organizations, MSPBwatch andWhistlewatch, broke the news that the Department of Health and HumanServices failed to submit annual reports to Congress for 10 years IAW the NoFear Act. They uncovered this by requesting the reports under the Freedom of Information Act and wondered why no one is incensed by this violation of lawin the nation's capital. If EPA is any indication, no one seems to care aboutviolations of the civil rights laws.
" As my sister would say, "What do you want - amedal or a monument?" 3. Marsha Coleman-Adebayo did not attempt to STEAL (plagiarize) or "misappropriate" the information you uncovered about HHS and DOT. After reviewingthe press releases, the only sentence that we could come up with is one written byme in which I said we were going to ask for reports under FOIA and review as acommittee. Marsha simply used the sentence I wrote, if that is what you areconsidering plagiarism.4. The sentence came about because we were supposedly working together to getthe information necessary under FOIA from the agencies to out the violators; Davideven sent me the draft letter he prepared to get the reports for us to use. We talkedlater because he had only two agency reports available on his web site out of theentire list of Departments/Agencies.5. I also decided that the No Fear Institute would have more clout in getting thereports quicker than my organization and then we would compare notes with your findings. I appreciate everyone wanting to get credit for their ideas and findings, butwhat is the point here? I misunderstood and thought it was about violations, nottaking credit for uncovering the violations, even though I gave you credit. There is noend to the violations under the Civil Rights Act and No Fear Act - this is just one of many.6. I have over 25 years of experience in civil rights and as a hobby review agencyreports on complaints. I had already downloaded the agency reports on line. I alsoknow many of the civil rights officials because this is a small community. Ichecked one agency that I thought would have excellent reports and noticed theReport to Congress with the type of data that I was interested in, such asdiscipline, costs for complaints, fees and an analysis of trends. I was sure that theother agencies did not comply and knew that EPA did not to my knowledge.7. I am sorry that these mean-spirited emails have destroyed any relationship or workthat we could have done together.SusanDear Mr. Pardo,We have not met, but it appears we all have the same concern of making the federalgovernment more accountable to the taxpayers.I was very dismayed to receive the e-mail you sent accusing Dr. Coleman-Adebayo of allegations noted in your e-mail I received.Dr. Coleman-Adebayo was key in appealing to Congress for the passage of the NOFEAR ACT which makes it possible to attain detailed data of agency efforts withrespect to EEO complaint activity.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/No-FEAR_ActOver a decade ago, I attended the hearing where Dr. Coleman-Adebayo testified beforeCongress to make it possible to implement the NO FEAR data requirements. I alsoparticipated in the first No FEAR
Whistleblower Week In Washington
event which shespearheaded under Rev. Walter Fauntroy's leadership. On many occasions I sat withDr.Coleman-Adebayo and Congressional Staffers to create language that wouldprovide for the collection of No FEAR Data. I share this with you -
not to beantagonistic,
but rather to let you know that I am most aware that the collection andanalysis of NO FEAR data has always been within Dr.Coleman-Adebayo's scope asChair of the No FEAR Coalition.While, I applaud the efforts of your organization seeking NO FEAR data via FOIA
