#58 Financial Disclosure: No Parole Peltier Association
Please see the following affidavit regarding the No Parole Peltier Association’s (NPPA) financial disclosure. The original notarized affidavit can be seen here. Copies of checks, invoices and receipts can be viewed here.*
It can be clearly seen that the NPPA’s goal and purpose has nothing to do with money or funding, only honoring the memory and sacrifice of Jack and Ron and dismantling the myth and folklore surrounding Leonard Peltier.
Peltier’s finances have been their dirty little secret since about March, 1977. “All proceeds benefit Leonard’s defense fund” (Betty Solano), and who else and how much? Peltier’s trial and appellate attorneys were paid by the kindness of the American taxpayers. The vast majority of money raised and spent by Peltier and the LPDOC (LPDC) was on anything but defense costs and attorneys fees.
So, Leonard, now it’s your turn for a full financial disclosure.
“In the Spirit of Coler and Williams”
*A subsequent typo was noted in the following and attached original affidavit; the 3/18/11 donation to the FBI Memorial Scholarship Fund was listed as $25.00, but it was actually $50.00. Also, which should have been noted, none of the donations made in the name of the No Parole Peltier Association were claimed as tax deductible donations.
