What is the real story behind LF trying to kill a president?

I asked the United States Secret Service and they said "no records were located"



Did I not use the right words or should I have contacted the FBI?

perhaps some fyads dressed up as secret service agents and went to lowtax's house to hassle him so he'd close down LF

Forums poster Competition has this to say in the SAclopedia:

quote:

At this point LF is locked and the great purge takes place, Lowtax response in QCS citing repeated visits by the SS to subpoena LF posters who made death threats against the President, how he was angry that LF posters thought they were above the rules by thinking that mod sass is acceptable and how LF posters went internet detective on mods and posted death threats

Lowtax's QCS post in question here, is no longer accessible

Delicious and Informative!


I think it's time to make a Truth & Reconciliation thread in QCS.

Alternatively, this is an ongoing investigation and they're withholding the information. Someone ask Trump to reveal the truth.

There is the off chance I didn't FOIA the right agency but the story that has come down through the ages is that Lowtax was positively overwhelmed with letters, phone calls, subpoenas, and repeated visits to his house by multiple agents of the Secret Service.

I'm thinking this never happened.

Rule #1 of CSPAM should probably be changed to something about groverhouse.

A Goddamn Red was banned for this but I am doubting if he or anyone else for that matter got a visit from the secret service

I gave the range of 2008 - 2011 on my FOIA request and although all of this stuff took place in November 2010, I'd think something would have been captured.
