Lobbying team for Allied Veterans group resigns amid probe



The lobbying team who represented Allied Veterans, and its parent company International Internet Technologies terminated its relationship yesterday in light of the federal investigation into racketeering when they determined that the company has misrepresented itself to them, said its former spokeswoman Sarah Bascom. Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll resigned late Tuesday in the wake of the investigation as well.

The lobbying team:

   Sarah Bascom
   H. Douglas Bruce
   Carlos M. Cruz
   Scott Dick
   Richard E. Gentry
   Ron Greenstein
   Jeff Hartley
   Eliakim Nortelus
   William Gregory Turbeville

International Internet Technologies and its owners and affiliates have spent $340,000 in campaign contributions in the last election cycle and $195,000 in the 2010 cycle. More to come on that.
