Price of Liberty
12 October 2013
In a ~completely-shocking~ turn of events, Peter Santilli shut down the donation page Saturday night for his website ridefortheconstitution.org.
As he broadcast live throughout the weekend, many callers and users of his live chat asked where the help was being provided. Gilberton, PA was the location where former police chief Mark Kessler would be assisting drivers by providing fuel for the truckers.
Suspect, supporters of Santilli began to question where the money they had been donating all week was going. Although Santilli affirmed his audience that Zeeda and Hesher (two assistant radio jockeys) were on top of things, no proof has been proffered by either Santilli or anyone he has claimed to help.
Within ten minutes of banning users on the chat who called Santilli a “scam artist,” the donation page was shut down. Estimates throughout the week ascertained from comments made live and online by Santilli (and others) put the sum of funds near $500,000 and, with no one to account for its whereabouts, it is unknown just how much money is actually located where. Funds have been transferred via PayPal and even bitcoin.
[edit @11:21pm EST] Before taking a break for the evening on his radio show, Santilli told Zeeda to go out and spend some money. After claiming all evening that he didn’t have access to the funds, he is now encouraging Zeeda to make expenditures on behalf of RFTC.
Santilli tells his audience that he is an upstanding citizen who has never been arrested or sued in a court of law. As we have seen, Santilli lies, cheats and scams the general public. And true to form, this claim is not based in reality. This isn’t the first time Santilli has scammed his audience.
Santilli was sued by D&D Home Developers in 1997 in a civil case as owing the company thousands of dollars on a fix-and-flip deal gone bad. This scheme was enacted in Maretta, Georgia.
