Exhibit 27 What Do We Do With Debi Starnes? Or See How Central Atlanta Progress and United Way Launder Money

Exhibit 27 is one of 28 in the lawsuit of the Atlanta Task Force for the Homeless, Inc. v. Central Atlanta Progress (CAP), Atlanta Downtown Improvement District, Inc. (ADID) and Manny Fialkow’s variously named companies. The City of Atlanta as a defendant was squirming when eons ago it was taken off the hook by a protecting federal judge. Emory University and Emory Health Care, Inc. face the same charges as fellow conspirators: tortious interference, racketeering, taking fraudulently, etc. Emory’s protection comes not from a federal court but from the neighboring Superior Court of Dekalb County. This Exhibit 27 was filed on July 11, 2014, in Judge Craig Schwall’s Superior Court of Fulton County, Georgia. The Baker Donelson attorneys representing the plaintiffs are Steve Hall and Bob Brazier. These devastating documents in Exhibit 27 were written in August of 2008. The City of Atlanta, United Way of Atlanta, Central Atlanta Progress and Kwanza Hall of Atlanta City Council would all hope that this evidence had never seen the light of day.

Please note that the longest part of these emails is the list of names that were copied. Please note also the interminable list of names who received Alastair J. Robinson’s explanation. Imagine this many people in this many places needing an explanation of Debi Starnes having been paid or about to be paid “under the table.” I’d bet the stratagems alone practiced among these worthies could initiate yet another lawsuit. Note also the unique structure of these emails. By “unique” I mean that Alastair J. Robinson’s email is an email within an email. The first email’s originator is the daunted Paul Kelman, CAP’s Gordon Liddy look alike. Following Alastair J. Robinson’s explanation of some of their tricky moves necessary to launder money to Debi Starnes, Paul Kelman’s signature appears.

A word on the venerable Paul Kelman begs to be presented here. Since the day he compared a place that would succor people with AIDS to a TOXIC WASTE DUMP, he’s been viewed by fragile, weak people as powerful, as the Master, as the owner of the plantation. He petrifies the overwhelmed and he overwhelms the strong tax-paying members of Central Atlanta Progress. Fragile, unkempt homeless citizens hurrying alongside the Hurt Building fear Kelman; the high-rolling members of Central Atlanta Progress applaud his acumen. He is a man among men. He is a voice of downtown business. He is CAP.

But I gotta tell you. As I watched my redneck cousins kill deer in Canandaigua, NY, I’ve seen the eyes of a buck in the headlights just before his brains got splattered in the snow. I’ve seen a petrified deer’s eyes in the headlights. As my cousins would say, “I seen it when he done it.” But you know what? I saw it again, once again. I saw Paul Kelman’s eyes STARTLED in Anita Beaty’s headlights. Paul and Anita were inside; there were no headlights; people were standing around sipping drinks and nibbling hors d’oeuvres. But the eyes of that Central Atlanta Progress giant met the eyes of the dreaded, giant Anita Beaty. He froze. His eyes glazed. He wanted to run. Looking on, I feared that “that man among men” had suffered apoplexy. Anita spoke, “Hello, Paul,” and the Venerable “toxic waste dumb” specialist turned on his heels for the nearest Men’s Room. People standing with me wondered had he gone to throw up or had he just “fouled his small clothes.” I put my money on the latter.

A study should compare The Reverend Daniel Matthews’ physical reactions whenever he “flushes” at the thought of Peachtree Pine existing within 1000 feet of his corporation to those of the TOXIC’s whenever he encounters Anita Beaty. Several reliable sources over the years have reported to me that some prominent Atlantans, especially elderly white men, suffer loose bowels at the sight of “that woman,” Anita Beaty. Better yet, one scion told me that Horace Sibley at the THOUGHT of Anita Beaty “shits his pants.” Could be! If the holy father of St. Luke’s Vineyard crimsons at the mention of the Pine, perhaps the pride of King & Spaulding, Hosby Sibley, can foul his small clothes at the thought of “that woman.” Don’t forget that one of the better moments in literature occurs when Horace Sibley on a Christmas Eve long ago gives me the finger just before he ascends the chimney to join his fellow conspirators.

And if you throw in Rector Hoare (that’s Hoare with an H) over at Varsity Grill All Saints Episcopal, you’ll have a luscious corporate salad. Rector Hoare is the highest paid priest (more than my Bishop) in the Episcopal Corporation, and he preached on Super Bowl Sunday some years ago his diatribe against Peachtree Pine. The men in transition at The Pine counted 9 blatant falsehoods in his “homily” about the Peachtree Pine facility that he proclaimed from his Episcopal pulpit on the most HOLY DAY in the Church, SUPER BOWL SUNDAY. Go easy on the Hoare with an H because he really shepherds CAP folk in his flock, and more importantly he has a huge salary to protect.

Steve Hall’s brilliance in arranging these 28 exhibits cannot be adequately described. I am not a lawyer; I do not want to be a lawyer. I could never think like a lawyer; I can’t understand what lawyers write, rarely do I comprehend what they say. I don’t seek the company of half the lawyers I encounter. I pray for all lawyers. I avoid most lawyers. I lean heavily on Charles Dickens to teach me how to scrutinize lawyers. THE PICKWICK PAPERS give the truest account of lawyers I’ve ever read. Those are Dodson and Fogg who prosecute the adorable Pickwick himself.

I’m no lawyer, but I am a juror whenever I’m called. The jury box and the ballot box are the ONLY two boxes left us that even pretend to give the small equal footing with the great. It is only in the jury box that I’m permitted to sit with the great: Alastair J. Robinson, Kasim Reed, Brad Curry, Dan Mathews, Rector Hoare or Horace Sibley. Steve Hall has masterfully won the jurors, the small people for whom the jury box was created. Speak of Steve Hall’s brilliance as a lawyer, and I do, but lay that fact aside for a moment. Hall’s HEART compiled these exhibits. Hall’s heart touches the place where some of us live everyday where little homeless children have not one clue what tomorrow will bring. They pray for help from ROCK TENN and Mayor Somebody and The Chamber Pot.

They see a President who for eight years has promised CHANGE; they weep as the only change they know is bad change. They hear of a mayor in Atlanta who received millions of dollars from a billionaire politician in New York who wanted to help homeless people. And their mothers don’t have money for diapers or cereal or milk. They hear words like United Way and Gateway that have less meaning to them than no way or subway of highway or far away. Steve Hall has invaded these perpetrators. Steve Hall as Myrtle Davis says has exposed their system. Steve Hall has challenged Godzilla. David has faced Goliath. Five smooth stones rest in Hall’s shepherd’s bag. UNFORTUNATELY, no jury in a court of law will ever see or hear or think about any one of these 28 damning exhibits.

Our JUST US SYSTEM that shackles us could never permit Central Atlanta Progress to stand before a jury with its filthy undies gathered around its plantation ankles. Our JUST US SYSTEM could never permit the City of Atlanta to face the daily atrocities it commits against languished women and their stunned children, child abuse gone mad. Our JUST US SYSTEM could never permit Emory Health Care, Inc. to be exposed as the chief conspirator in the attempt to take the Peachtree-Pine building for its PROTON PENTAGON. Emory may very well steal Peachtree-Pine in due time for its other purposes, but the $$$ for the PROTON PENTAGON have already built that monster four blocks away from Emory’s preferred location. Our JUST US SYSTEM that permits Debi Starnes to use sylph-like creations such as the Continuum of Care, the overall Consolidated Plan, and the laughable 10-Year Plan To End Chronic Homelessness to slash Task Force Funds could never ever allow those drones to be scrutinized by Steve Hall before a jury. He would win. The people would win. And the system’s protectors know that truth.

The reasons that CAP and ADID and Manny Fialkow and the corrupt City of Atlanta and Emory University and Emory Health Care, Inc. will never face a jury are legion. One reason is that they will lose, and they sense that fact. Besides, nobody gets those bastards in front of a jury. Another reason, and that reason appears high on the list. I say again that reason is STEVE HALL. Steve Hall, the attorney. They didn’t know Steve Hall when they shut off the water at Peachtree Pine. They know him now. They have studied him; they have researched him; they know him to be the litigator that he is. But that is not really why they fear him. His heart, it’s his heart. His HEART for righteousness before a jury will kick their collective, corrupt ass, Realize with me, please, that before this lawsuit, Central Atlanta Progress had never been so much as subpoenaed to be deposed. I may need to be corrected on this, but I believe that this plantation-thinking power has never been deposed, much less faced a jury of its peers. Of course, those plantation folks have no peers; the JUST US folks called to serve on juries are not peers of the Alastair J. Robinsons of this world.

Steve Hall identifies Exihibit 27 as “Orr-Robinson email re: Starnes funding, check, Wardell-Kelman email, 7/23/08, 8/6/08.” I give it a different title with a subtitle: What Do We Do With Debi Starnes? or See How CAP, ADID and United Way Launder Money.

Just talked with Debi. She’s not leaving the City, however a portion of her funding was cut and she has to raise those funds outside the City to cover the remainder of her costs.

Subject: Response to Questions About Funding Debi Starnes’ Efforts
From: A. J. Robinson
Let me try to answer the questions that Joe, Hank, Karen and others have raised regarding this request.

First, our check would be written to the United Way, not to the City. United Way has been the administrator of most of the City’s/Mayor’s programs regarding homelessness since the program was begun a few years back. Debi Starnes was funded by the City but since the homeless program the Mayor created technically a city function (social services are supposed to be handled by Fulton County), the Mayor could not continue funding it in this shrinking budget environment.

We share the ongoing tension of “Isn’t this something the City should do?” We face that question almost every day on many issues. This particular issue we believe warrants out temporary support for the following reasons:

1. Progress has been made over the past six years. If we turn back now, we risk sliding backwards.
2. The Mayor has about 16 more months in office and we are not sure who will follow with any commitment on this issue. [(The Downtown business community needs to make sure that this issue is kept front and center during the campaign leading up to the election.]
3. The same can be said for Horace Sibley and Debi, who are well equipped to handle this program.
4. We are soon launching a new panhandling initiative which, as you know, is mission critical. Debi has been a strong advocate on this program and we need her help within the corridors of City Hall.
5. I’m hopeful ADID will not be the only funder of this stop gap measure but we definitely have a lot to lose if we don’t continue.
6. Time is of the essence regarding this funding request.
As to your other questions:

1. We are not aware of any additional funding requests programmed for the future.
2. We think it would be best for Debi to remain an employee or contractor for the United Way and be accountable to them and the entire community. She does have a special relationship with the Mayor and Council that we all need to use to best advantage on this issue.
3. We don’t know what will happen at the end of this funding request period.
Thank you for your consideration of this important request. Once we have heard back from everyone, we will update you on the vote and next steps.
Paul B. Kelman, FAICP
Executive President
Central Atlanta Progress, Inc.

Very good response, Paul. Dave

The next full page of Exhibit 27 following Dave Wardell’s “attaboy” to Paul Kelman contains copies of two $40,000 ADID checks made payable to United Way Regional Commission and show “Debi Starnes Homelessness Gift” Check #8625 is dated 8/12/2008; the second check shows $40,000 for Debi Starnes Homelessness Gift.” There is no number showing on the second check.

Note: Debi Starnes was deposed two times by Steve Hall . She contradicted herself so many times that the attorney asked her twice if she was on medication. After several instances of outright bearing false witness, Attorney Hall asked her if she was aware that she was under oath. Steve Hall roasted the Czar of Homelessness two times in excess of five hours. Lil Miss Debi left both grillings thoroughly cooked.
