LIA has state Reps on their support list...

Thanks to Jeff Harwood for the following tip off...
It appears, through some quick-thinking research, that there are at least two state representatives that LIA sends out information to. They are the following:

R - Memphis
District 96 - Part of Shelby County

S Senator Jon Kyl (R-AZ).

This confirms what was rumoured earlier in the year about LIA taking two state rep's to a meeting with the Department of Mental Health and Developmental Dissabilities.
This comes after the termintaion of Nathan Bell from the staff of LIA, and him sending out a form letter to "supporters"...Nathan aparently did not Bcc the emails and these two reps were traced down.


  • Senator Jon Kyl is not a "state representative": he is a US Senator.

  • There is a state senator Jim Kyle(D) in district 28 (parts of Shelby Co). I wonder if that is who is being mentioned...

  • I have the list of recipients of Nathan's email: "kyl.senate.gov" is the address of the elected official's email in question.

  • One more thing...this listing of two political e-mail addresses within Mr. Bell's group does not "confirm" that those two were the ones we heard rumored were at the meeting with LiA months ago.

    Certainly, the points line up, but we must be diligent to keep the facts from the hypotheses. These email addresses suggest a link, but they in no way determine a link.

  • If the email address is 'senate.gov' then I retract my earlier comment. That would be US Senator Kyl of AZ.

    Of course a senator from Arizona would make a level of sense. The Alliance Defense Fund is based in Arizona. It might explain how ADF got involved in the Love in Action case...

  • Great thinking, Mudd! I had no idea of a possible connection. Thanks for the suggestion...

  • If you want to know if Paul Stanley was at the Dep. of Mental Health
    meeting, why don't you just ask him? And what is his affiliation with
    LIA? Probably best if the questions came from one of his constituents.

    Also, if you know the date that the meeting took place, you might try
    asking the Dept. who was in attendence. I'm sure there were minutes
    taken (which should show who was in attendance). They may tell you that
    information is confidential or you might just get the list depending on
    if it constitutes a public meeting or not.

  • Great BLOG. Keep up the good work. Years ago I had a run in with LIA folks, I even stayed in a couple of their houses. It was about 1977. The interesting thing was the amount of gay sex I had while there! Also, the older guys in these houses were really out to nail my ass ... if you know what I mean.

    Well I only stayed for about 1 week total, but I will never forget the freaks that ran the cult.

  • why i read this site i'll never know...probably to remind myself how extremely sad you all are. my condolences for your restless spirits. you hide behind false feelings of care and concern for those "afflicted" and hurt by LIA, but it's only because you want others to coalesce with your anger and bitterness.

  • hey there, this is off topic, but I'm wondering if anyone is coming from Memphis for the Bush protest this Wednesday. King George will be here the morning after the SOTU performance. Opryland Hotel, protest is from 10am-12noon, Feb 1st. Details and updates as needed, here:


    Keep up the good blogging!
