Update: It has been brought to my attention that in this post I do not use strong enough language about Policy Issues Institute. Do not send them money. They are not going to Impeach Obama. The only thing that will happen is that you will get 10+ letters from them every week. And your information will be sold to every mailing list in the US.
I feel like I have been chasing Floyd Brown and his “Band of Merry Men” all over the internet. Read about that here and here. Policy Issues Institute does not have a website. White House Watch (A project of Policy Issues Institute) had a website but it is now dead. Impeach Obama Campaign has a website but no contact info. Every project of Policy Issues Institute has a different PO Box. I need to find the physical address.
To the Googles! Thanks Washington State and GuideStar 🙂
Their Mailing address is:
Law Offices Of Maureen E. Otis, PC
4850 Wright Rd Site 168
STAFFORD TX 77477
But their street address is:
Civic Center Plaza
30011 Ivy Glenn Drive
Laguna Niguel, California 92677
Google Street View
That is the address of Wewer & Lacy LLC “Leaders in Nonprofit and Election Law”
But how is this law office connected to Policy Issues Institute (PII)? There are 14 companies that are listed at this address:
- Coalition For Literacy
- California Conservative Coalition
- California Political Review
- California Grizzly Mountain Wines Inc.
- The Legacy Committee
- Values In Common
- Nonpartisan Voter Information Institute
- Western Center For Journalism
- Policy Issues Institute
- Policy Issues Institute Incorporated
- Coalition For California
- Tri County Taxpayers Association
- California Term Limits
- Escucha A California
They are all run by Floyd Brown, James Lacy and few friends. James Lacy is listed as the Registered Agent for Policy Issues Institute, and his email address is at the top of the Wewer & Lacy LLC website, so I sent a note to his work email. Now I am not so high and mighty as to think that a big fancy lawer with an office in ritzy Laguna Niguel would answer my email himself, he tossed it to a lackey in the office (probably some poor kid with a brand new law degree and a mountain of student loan debt) who wrote me a nice note saying that I would be off the mailing list that day. He then passed it on to someone at Policy Issues Institute who would delete me from their mailing list.
That was overly complicated. If they would just have a real website like a normal SuperPAC, I would have just sent it to info@PII or some such thing, but no. Now I am the official web page for Policy Issues Institute. But instead of spewing their rhetoric, all I do is tell people how to stop it from invading their homes.
An article from The Intelligencer, Wheeling News Register from West Virginia, about junk mail aimed at seniors that mentions our friends at Policy Issues Institute.
Los Angeles Times article about how Policy Issues Institute sells it’s self out to PACs so they can use Policy Issues Institute’s lower postal rate.
Here are all the projects of Policy Issues Institute (PII):
- Americans Against U.N. Control
- Impeach Obama Campaign
- United States Investigative Unit
- United States Health Congress
