Texas Attorney General Greg Abbot probably knows a sleazebucket when he investigates one.
According to a release issued by the AG’s office, Coleman asked individuals — including in at least one instance the mother of a military man killed in Iraq — and businesses to donate money to the foundation supposedly to build a national memorial to veterans who died in the line of duty while deployed to Iraq, Afghanistan, and Gulf War.
The memorial allegedly was to go up in Kennedale, Texas, which, of course, is the epicenter of the wars in the Middle East.
Living under at least three different names — also including Walter E. Coleman and Walter Raleigh Coleman Jr. — raises suspicions. Using allegedly falsified IRS documents as a front for a legitimate 501(c)(3) public charity brings in the state boys. Bilking grieving relatives and patriotic businesspeople reserves your seat in the Eighth Circle of hell.
