USPS put stipulations in their sponsorship contract. These stipulation do provide a say as to how the money can't be spent.

Well, THAT is outrageous--especially shelving the witness tampering aspect, as we know that at least 2 grand jury witnesses were threatened directly by Lance. Nothing anonymous about THOSE threats. And that's a criminal offense. Thanks for the info, Benotti. Good to know.

It appears that LA has some serious psychological issues. Many on the forum have commented on his sociopathic and narcissistic tendencies.

Perhaps, rather than jail time, it would be appropriate to lock LA up in a mental institute for a while.

Sorry to see fujjist banned. Maybe there's some stuff that I didn't see, but I otherwise didn't catch anything that was purely destructive.

lol.. He may be like another McMurphy in Cuckoo's Nest. Only Lance would be more sinister, not much humor at all.

LOL, maybe you've not thought about how easily you could be Lance.

Not sure how to make it clear but the race angle in this topic is off topic and off limits. I've had to delete more posts. Next steps will unfortunately be thread closure and/or more bans. Please move on.
