    Thanks Phoenix Woman – your post inspired this post about counter-narratives on my Vennes Info blog: http://vennesinfo.blogspot.com/2012/03/will-there-be-counter-narrative.html Coincidentally, Assistant US Attorney John Docherty who successfully prosecuted Dean Zimmermann is also on the team prosecuting Frank Vennes. John Docherty also was on the team that prosecuted Tom Petters and the team that prosecuted Milosevic at The [...]

    Mike. there was no political persecution. I suggest you read Scott Horton’s “When is a Prosecution Political?”: “http://www.harpers.org/archive/2008/02/hbc-90002323 Zimmermann had an opportunity to appeal his case to the U.S. Supreme Court and he didn’t. Read the open letter Zimmermann wrote to supporters from “Camp Fluffy” – it does not remotely resemble a letter from a [...]

    “I have no idea about who or what was getting paid”.

    So nobody in that room that had a financial stake in helping Zimmermann perfect his PRT PowerPoint pitch? Why exactly was there so much support for Taxi 2000 and PRT among the that small group of Green Party members devoted to Zimmermann? If Mr. Cavlan [...]

    Dean Zimmermann an environmentalist? Hardly. Zimmermann was always lending a helping hand to developers in need, often at the expense of the community and the environment. Why did he support the 35W Access Project? Why did support the building of luxury condo that did not conform to the Shoreline Overlay District of Lake Calhoun (way [...]

    Phoenix Woman, at that rehearsal in St. Louis Park where Cavlan operated the video camera, Dean Zimmermann specifically promoted the Taxi 2000 Corporation. At that time, the Taxi 2000 Corporation was telling investors PRT was going to be a billion dollar industry. Where is the Taxi 2000 Corporation now? In a recent article, a shareholder [...]

    Mike, when I interviewed you at the 331 Club, you were just as evasive as you are now.

    It’s really klassy that you dragged Nate Blumenshine (and his mother?) into a discussion about Zimmermann. Did either of them see the tapes or have direct knowledge of what transpired regarding the charges?

    Mike, do you remember a meeting in St Louis Park 3/23/2004 in which Zimmermann rehearsed the PRT PowerPoint presentation he would give at a closed-to-the-public “study session” at City Hall on the 25th with Rep. Mark Olson and the officers of the Taxi 2000 Corporation? I seem to remember you were there operating a video [...]

    Right you are Phoenix Woman. And contrary to Mister Cavlan’s account, Dean Zimmermann received VERY sympathetic coverage from the mainstream media. Dean was portrayed by Strib columnist Doug Grow before the trial as a lovable, bike-riding hippie. In contrast, the government’s chief witness Gary Carlson received a thorough sliming by the Strib – something Mr. [...]

    Michael. Thanks for your comments. Perhaps you can help me out with my research. As you know, I have been documenting Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) for some time now. I am always finding new historical pieces to a puzzle that adds up to a decades-old flim-flam. The historical artifact I dug up recently was a [...]

    Mike, I’ll tell you what I told Alan Maki: If you have evidence of criminal wrongdoing, take it to the FBI.

    I’m still waiting for Mr. Maki to give me his evidence that I personally bribed Elizabeth Dickinson.

    Alan Maki says: “Avidor; you don’t see any of this DFL corruption, why? Because you don’t look because it is a situation where you know not to look so you don’t see.” Me: In my last comment, I mentioned 3 DFLers who were convicted on charges of corruption. What more do you want? I have [...]

    Mike, instead of calling me names, please look at what I wrote about Zimmermann. Mike, you and other Zimmermann supporters did have a chance to testify at the trial. Your testimony did not have anything that contradicted the evidence (again – I saw the evidence and call upon Zimmermann to release it for everyone to [...]

    Um, Mike… anyone can read my blogs or watch my videos on the web. You and Mr. Maki too. If I have gotten any facts wrong, please let me know. You can start here:

    Um, Mike… Phoenix Woman didn’t send me here. I have a Google alert for Dean Zimmermann. I don’t work for the DFL and I have no formal relationship with the party other than voting for DFL candidates and participating in caucuses and conventions. I have criticized DFL politicians when I disagreed with them and will [...]

    I was at the trial and I saw the videos of Zimmermann taking the cash and checks – no doubt he was guilty as charged. I have asked Zimmermann to sign a waiver to release the tapes, Zimmermann has refused: http://quichemoraine.com/2009/06/ken-avidor-on-dean-zimmerman/ Maybe Michael Cavlan can convince his friend Dean to sign the waiver so I [...]
