Microsoft Whistleblowing Alleges That Microsoft/Jon DeVaan Engages in Political Corruption/Election Fraud

Posted in Finance, Fraud, Microsoft at 1:20 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Jon DeVaan

Summary: A senior vice president in charge of Microsoft’s cash cow (Windows Core Operating System Division) is said/claimed to be breaking the law and the FBI is approached for a federal investigation

THE LAST post ended on the note that Microsoft is exploiting its newly-acquired influence in the government in order to cause legal trouble to companies which are good Linux stewards.

Speaking of government, a few days ago Tony Wiitcomb sent some heavy mail to us (.DOC ENCLOSURE omitted) and it contained documents as well as this complaint about Microsoft’s role in putting the current administration in place. Jon DeVaan, whom we saw in antitrust exhibits such as [1, 2], comes under the following accusations:

Dear Federal Bureau of Investigation:

My name is Tony Whitcomb and this is my former boss/business partner, http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/exec/devaan/

Below is a list of Political Campaign Contributions Mr. Devaan has made to the Democratic Party going back to the year 2000 under the correct spelling of his last name, “Devaan.”

On this list you will see in 2008, Mr. Devaan donated $28,500.00 to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee on March 31, 2008.

Below this list is another list of Political Campaign Contributions Mr. Devaan made in 2008 to the, “Obama Victory Fund” on July 25, 2008 for another, $28,500.00.

But you will notice Mr. Devaan made this second large political campaign contribution to the Obama Victory Fund under a slightly different spelling of his last name, “Devann?”

You will also notice, “Mr. Devann” has all of the same address and employment information as, “Mr. Devaan” but, “Mr. Devann” has only donated money in the 2008 election cycle while, “Mr. Devaan” has donated money in every election cycle going back to the year 2000.

I am not an attorney, but is it normal/legal for a private citizen to be able to make multiple large political campaign contributions under two different spellings of their last name?

It is my understanding the following limits apply to contributions from individuals to candidates for all Federal offices:

$2,400 per Election to a Federal candidate — Each primary, runoff, and general election counts as a separate election.

$30,400 per calendar year to a national party committee — applies separately to a party’s national committee, and House and Senate campaign committee.

$10,000 per calendar year to state, district & local party committees.

$5,000 per calendar year to state, district & local party committee.

It is also my understanding that, “No person shall make a contribution in the name of another person or knowingly permit his name to be used to effect such a contribution, and no person shall knowingly accept a contribution made by one person in the name of another person.”

And it is also my understanding, “It is a federal crime to evade the following donation limits listed above through a straw donor scheme” which is exactly what I think Mr. Devaan may have been a part of through the 4th largest contributors to President Barack Obama’s Presidential Campaign, Microsoft.

Upon your request I can provide the FBI with a copy of a $10,000,000.00 Confidential Private Placement Memorandum that Mr. Devaan and I put together back in 2007 in regards to my Intellectual Property called Expotera to help you verify my relationship to Mr. Devaan and his relationship to me.

Thank you for your time and for your immediate considerations into these matters and if you should need any additional information from me you can feel free to reach me via this e-mail address.

Sincerely,

Tony E. Whitcomb
Founder/CEO Expotera

Is this Jon’s wife perhaps?

Let’s not forget [ref 5760 how the Gates, Ballmer and Smith families managed to pay Obama without breaking rules] (using their spouses as back doors) and how they use a former colleague who is now in government to avoid taxation (weighing billions of dollars which poor taxpayers will need to make up for).

“One strategy that Microsoft has employed in the past is paying for the silence of people and companies. Charles Pancerzewski, formerly Microsoft’s chief auditor, became aware of Microsoft’s practice of carrying earnings from one accounting period into another, known as “managing earnings”. This practice smoothes reported revenue streams, increases share value, and misleads employees and shareholders. In addition to being unethical, it’s also illegal under U.S. Securities Law and violates Generally Accepted Accounting Practices (Fink).

    The EPO's demise at the hands of people who don't understand patents and don't care what the EPO exists for is a real crisis which European media is unwilling to even speak about; today we share some internal publications and comment on them

    The Central Staff Committee (CSC) of the EPO talks about EPO President António Campinos, arguing that “he seems to subscribe to the Manichean view, introduced by Mr Battistelli…”



  16. Prof. Thomas Jaeger in GRUR: Unified Patent Court (UPC) “Incompatible With EU Law“

    The truth remains unquestionable and the law remains unchanged; Team UPC is living in another universe, unable to accept that what it is scheming will inevitably face high-level legal challenges (shall that become necessary) and it will lose because the facts are all still the same

  19. [Meme] Germany's Licence to Break the Law

    Remember that the young Campinos asked dad for his immunity after he had gotten drunk and crashed the car; maybe the EPO should stop giving diplomatic immunity to people, seeing what criminals (e.g. Benoît Battistelli) this attracts; the German government is destroying its image (and the EU’s) by fostering such corruption, wrongly believing that it’s worth it because of Eurozone domination for patents/litigation



  20. EPO Dislikes Science and Scientists

    The EPO's management has become like a corrupt political party with blind faith in money and monopolies (or monopoly money); it has lost sight of its original goals and at this moment it serves to exacerbate an awful pandemic, as the video above explains

  26. The EPO's Mythical “Gap” Has Been Found and It's Bonuses for People Who Use Pure Fiction to Steal From Patent Examiners

    The phony president who has the audacity to claim there's a budget gap is issuing millions of euros for his enablers to enjoy; weeks ahead of the next meeting of national delegates the Central Staff Committee (CSC) tells them: "Events show that the delegations’ concerns about functional allowances have materialised. The lack of transparency and inflation of the budget envelope gives rise to the suspicion that high management is pursuing a policy of self-service at the expense of EPO staff, which is difficult to reconcile with the Office’s claimed cost-saving policy, and to the detriment of the whole Organisation."

  30. Freenode.net Becomes a 'Reddit Clone' and Freenode IRC is Back to Old Configurations After Flushing Down Decades' Worth of User/Channel Data and Locking/Shutting Out Longtime Users

    Freenode is having another go; after “chits” and “jobs” (among many other ideas) have clearly failed, and following the change of daemon (resulting in massive loss of data and even security issues associated with impersonation) as well as pointless rebrand as “Joseon”, the domain Freenode.net becomes something completely different and the IRC network reopens to all
