     As we will continue to do, until a honorable investigation has begun, we are sending letters out to every authority and press entity that we can - on Mitt Romney & Bain Capital 2001 state, bankruptcy, SEC and federal frauds in the eToys case.

      Prior to this time, we have been in extensive discussions with the Commissioner of the SEC and various parties, where they promised me the investigation would be reviewed in full. I've spoken to numerous Attorneys at Law and Special Agents in various positions at the SEC and sent this letter - that you can read in full below the fold - to the SEC today.

RE: Documentation of Goldman Sachs & Bain Capital “Massive” Frauds from 2001 till now

Dear SEC Agent --------------;

    In 2001 the public company of filed for bankruptcy protection (DE Bankr 01-706). At that time, schemes almost too numerous to mention did transpire. Where, in essence, Goldman Sachs did conspire with Bain Capital to destroy a public company by a pump-n—dump so that Kay Bee may own eToys for free. The perpetrators were able to accomplish crimess through federal corruption that is undeniable; due to public record evidence of a United States Attorney's undisclosed conflict of interest!
     So that there can be no mistaking this as conjecture, hyperbole or assumptions of facts not in evidence; I, Steven Haas, a/k/a (more commonly addressed) as Laser Haas - doth state Under Penalty of Perjury, on this the 3rd day of August 2012 - that the Testimony herein is both true and correct.
     On February 15, 2005, the United States Trustee testified to Justice Mary F Walrath that the bad faith parties asked permission to circumvent the law and were told not to do so. Fiendishly, in a clandestine manner, they went ahead anyway. Inexplicably, despite the perpetrators being “caught” and being forced to confess; instead of arresting the intentional frauds on the court, the bad faith parties were given the keys to the vaults they were fleecing and the promise by the police to be willfully blind.  
     Our Smoking Gun evidences were entered into the court docket record March 1, 2005. At that time many parties confessed to lying under oath thirty-five (35) times. Including Bain Capital's pal Mr. Paul Traub and the MNAT law firm. There are more than one-hundred and one (101) state, bankruptcy, SEC and various other federal felony violations.. It is a known fact that the CEO of Bain Capital resigned in August 2001. Colm Connolly who was a partner of the Bain Capital MNAT law firm; was nominated to become the United States Attorney in Delaware by George W. Bush on August 2, 2001.
 Colm Connolly then, for seven (7) years, refused to investigate and/ or prosecute Bain Capital.

BACKROUND On Criminal Conflict of Interest Issues

    It is a fact that the parties have already confessed to lying under oath thirty-five (35) times. Compounding those issues are the US Trustee Motion (link above) concluding that it was intentional fraud on the court (Disgorge Motion ¶35).  This should be sufficient enough evidence to warrant a full blown federal investigation. Especially given the fact that extensive efforts have been made to assuage any investigation into the issues of the Bain Capital CEO's efforts in 2001. Who has confessed he gets millions per year from Bain Capital. Speciously, no one – anywhere – dares to mention the eToys case.
     In 1999 the law firm of Morris Nichols Arsht & Tunnel (“MNAT”) of Wilmington, DE – did handle the merger of Mitt Romney & his associates entity of “The Learning Company” with Mattel Toys. This is documented by MNAT's own letter to the SEC. MNAT also continues to represent Bain Capital issues - such as the Kay Bee Toys bankruptcy case $100 million  preferential transfer.
     Also in 1999, Goldman Sachs took eToys public. The price per share soared above $78. However, (inexplicably) eToys only received approximately $16.50 each. MNAT represents Goldman Sachs too.
    During the latter part of 2000, Bain Capital acquired Kay Bee Toys with Michael Glazer as CEO.  
Around that same period of time, Mitt Romney and his associates placed Stage Stores into bankruptcy (S TX Bankr. 00-35078). Co-directors at Stage Stores are Jack Bush (also CEO of Bain's IdeaForest and at Jumbo Sports) and Michael Glazer (who was CEO of Kay Bee Toys too). Jack Bush hired Barry Gold whom he worked with at Jumbo Sports. Then Barry Gold hired Paul Traub and failed to disclose his connections to the parties. When Mr. Traub, “got caught” and was forced to file a Supplemental Affidavit.

Selling eToys for almost free to Michael Glazer, Kay Bee Toys/ Bain Capital.
    As wind down coordinator of the eToys liquidations, my company, Collateral Logistics, Inc., and I – were the court appointed fiduciaries to keep everything kosher and “maximize returns with minimum expense” in eToys. When Bain Capital had announced they were buying the entire estate of eToys for $5.4 million; we halted the auctions and forced them to pay tens of millions of dollars more.
    That is when they offered me an $850,000 bribe and I told them no! This caused a panic in their ranks, because I reported the bribe to the Delaware Department of Justice. Who informed this layman that it was not really a bribe – until accepted. (Nice Try)! In the meantime, they conspired to Obstruct  and Destroy Evidence.

Final Page

Given the proofs and the fact that our due diligence forced MNAT, Paul Traub and Barry Gold to confess that they lied about Goldman Sachs connections and Barry Gold being secret partners with Paul Traub; a federal investigation should have immediately transpired. However, they had another “undisclosed” connection that assured no prosecution would ever occur.  Could Al Capone escape his culpability by stating he “retroactively” retired? Should we believe Frank Nitti (Bain Capital) stating that Al Capone (Mitt Romney) wasn't there? Simply because they handpicked their  own prosecutor?
     On August 2, 2001, GW Bush nominated Colm Connolly to be the Wilmington, Delaware United States Attorney. Where for seven (7) years thereafter, Mr. Connolly's office refused to investigate and/ or prosecute his former partners, cohorts and clients – because he was a partner of the MNAT firm.

Organized Crimes as a Bankruptcy Ring Expands
MNAT, while lying under oath and asking for Destruction of evidence, also nominated his cohort in crime (Paul Traub) to be the one to prosecute Goldman Sachs in the NY Supreme Court #601805/2002. As a result of Al Capone handpicking Frank Nitti to be his prosecutor, the case is now closed. To make sure you do not see their schemes – they've arranged to place the entire case under Seal! Additionally, Paul Traub continued to play the game that he was on opposite sides in the Kay Bee Toys and FAO Schwartz bankruptcy cases. In each of those deals, fraud was committed to benefit Bain Capital. Just a few weeks ago the Minnesota Federal Trustee named Paul Traub as the “controller” of Tom Petters Ponzi scheme.  Finally, the last straw is an Organized Criminal Empire with power almost beyond compare; as the Department of Justice's very own Public Corruption Task Force was Shut Down to bury any investigation into Bain Capital.

L.A. Times Story on Task Force Shut Down & Threats to career Prosecutors

       Obviously, doing business with America the Bain Capital way, includes federal corruption that would destroy our country. If not for hubris, chances are they would still be getting away with it all. If they can do this much now, what happens later? You can put a stop to this manifest injustice insanity.
 The evidence is all within public docket records
               we just need an “honorable” investigation
                                           -- is that really too much to ask for?

Issues at hand


        Goldman Sachs and Bain Capital are guilty of benefiting from federal frauds massive. They are partners in many surreptitious issues. Just as it is illogical to believe that Al Capone  (Romney) cannot "retroactively" retire from his fraudulent empire to escape culpability for the organized crimes thereof. It is also absurd to accept Frank Nitti's (Bain Capital) words that Capone (Romney) didn't do it.

       However, if Al Capone (Mitt Romney) and Frank Nitti (Bain Capital) had been able to handpick their own attorney (Colm Connolly) to become their prosecutor; then chances are he never would have been investigated either.

       Al Capone got too big for his britches when he started blowing up Bar's to force customers to buy from him. In the same way that Mitt Romney has hubris has made him too big for his britches - for him to think he could destroy hard drives, records, refuse to show his taxes and lie about (cover up) when he was really CEO of Bain Capital - and still think he could become POTUS in doing so.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
