It's true if by "crime syndicate", Fred means "his ex-wife",
and if by "Tax
Exempt Child Abuse web site", Fred means "the scurrilously disingenuous,
arguably libellous webpages that Mike Gomez hosted on *his* website
dedicated to CoS abuse, until he realized that Padgett was a fraud."

A fascinating question, indeed. Don't hold your breath waiting for a reply
from Fred, though. BTW, a Fun Fact<tm> about Padgett's legal strategy: like
OSA legal beagles, he apparently enjoyed making frivolous bar complaints
against anyone foolhardy enough to work for his ex-wife. According to one
of the depositions, he accused one of them of being an alcoholic. Nice!

It is, as I understand it, a joint project of Diane and Keith, and neither
has made any secret of that.

Alas, it exists only in the mind of Fred Rice.
BTW, did you know that you have been added to the Gerry Armstrong Paranoia
Exhibit as an OSA poster?
Check it out:
I'm fairly sure this means you outrank me in the pantheon of imaginary
enemies that his website documents, but I hope you'll not be offended that
I don't address you as "Sir".
