Where does the news about a "screw Lemond" Livestrong meeting originate?

Apologies if this has been addressed elsewhere:

Someone tweeted today "An ex-Livestrong board member explained how an entire meeting was devoted to figuring out how to “screw LeMond”. #investigatelivestrong"

They didn't link to a story though or mention a source. Anyone have an idea where this is coming from? Pretty nasty if it's true!

Lance went into the intern room and instructed them how to write **** about Greg. They then had a meeting about it

A high ranking board member was disgusted by it and wrote Greg an apology letter

Armstrong used to just want revenge because he disliked Lemond, but now that revenge will be driven by the fact Lemond is just days away from officially becoming the winningest American TdF rider...again.

At this point, there is no rumor about Armstrong I would not believe, including: paying off other riders to assure victory in the 1993 Thrift Drug Triple Crown, failing an EPO test during the Dauphiné Libéré, fathering a child by Stephanie McIlvain and having a less-than platonic relationship with Matthew McConaughey...

Hahaha, I know he has a weakness for blondes but the McConaughey rumour might be pushing it.

Edit: just googled him and he seems to have dark hair must have got him confused.

Regardless he's a ******bag for supporting Armstrong.

As the floodgates opened regarding the doping, they are starting to open regarding the Livestrong scam.

Are we even in the 4th quarter yet?

I certainly hope that people with some influence do begin to pick away at Livestrong. The charity's refusal to completely rid itself of Armstrong, his business friends and his businesses seems like something that would be a lot of fun to investigate. :)

PS - thanks everyone for helping answer my original question.

Yep, it's from Geoffrey Lemond. Just come across it courtesy of Bill Gifford retweeting it.

He said it's from 'personal, first hand knowledge' and is trying to get the person to go on record.

Is this a joke? who the F^%$ is "Geoffrey Lemond"? and Wonder****** should realize that now, ANYTHING brought up by him, or anyone associated with him,(about Greg) will be seen as: bitter, jealousy, vindictive, etc.

Time to let it go Wonderboy, Lemond is clean and NO evidence in the 18+ yrs since his retirement, proves that. Let it go, and move on.

Mustve been those 10 people Wonder****** said he'd get to say Lemond doped.....

Kathy Lemond tweeted recently that LA offered a former team mate of Greg's 300k to claim that he saw Greg dope. The former team mate refused. Not sure if this is the accurate version of the popular clinic story about offering anybody money or in addition to the the clinic story.

I totally believe this, bc Wonder****** is exactly the type of person to do something like that. People for years have claimed "Greg is bitter/jealous...blah blah blah". Who's the "bitter/jealous" one here? it's Wonder******, he's obsessed with Greg, it's clearly evident.

He can't stand the fact that Greg duped the duper(or should i say doper) & he'll go down as the ONLY american to ever win the TDF!!!

Nice to see Greg back on top, where he rightfully belongs!!!

Lemme see if I'm understanding this right(and please correct me if I'm not):

"Geoffrey Lemond" is Greg's son, and he(Geofferey) is supposed to testify, or give statements that claim he saw his dad doping, have I got that right?

What? No. Lemond's son tweeted (today, I gather) about the livestrong meeting to slander his dad. That meeting was years ago. They never got any proof of Greg doping despite trying.

Yes he is Greg's son. He tweeted on 20/10/12 that he was told by an ex-livestrong board member that there was a meeting at livestrong HQ where the topic was how can we destroy Lemond.

Kathy Lemond tweeted recently that LA offered a former team mate of Greg's 300k to claim he doped. (I just went to twitter to find the tweet and I don't see a thing about it. She either deleted it or its in a link or I imagined it and I don't think I did. I will update this if I can find the link.)

Armstrong pandered heavily to Alexi Grewal a couple years ago asking him and others if they had any info whatsoever on Lemond doping. Nothing. Not a damn thing. The best he could do is get Ferrari so say some BS.
