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

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).
