I wonder what yen would do if some one pronised you *675.UO by a giv^n time and th-^n gave you #250.00 ond thought-art hat; snttl-H th1? master. I hnvn more than jb'75.0Q due by now, that figures is only what was due by July, fly next month I TO suculd h*™ anottwr $685.00 for another quarter.
In November t::e total sum is suppo sed the b«» returned. And 1 do not have an acknowledgement of the last loan of <fcl5,OOU . Wher° Is the justice? Ynu are the on-? who promised this, I ^ d?f3parately n<?pd $M3.00 by October -3rd. I must have it and es you know I told you I had to hove the interest frrm what I loaded tc F;IR or whptever.
Can't ycu influence any of your cohorts to do anything for this situation. I really fe = l .1 will hav'- to take it to my lew-yer if som» onn th°ir does mt see thr justice of my stand. If I hpvr> tn I will t»ll ovory thing about hew this ca^pe abiut and that will sonewhat verify the stories I have h ard about workers seeking Toney from elderly women.
I am r-ally very disappointpd in the whole thing, ?ou cannot believe that I em glorifying his cause when I cnnnot «ven got B r'c^ipt for my Insfc Innn much less fulfillment cf promise's, I certainly 1 ^t you know that I .had to have that interest that in f flrt I d"p°n-i="1 on it for snmo of my n--c"ssitie s b«? cruse p^ r--1'. i r-m^'-t di^l nnh fulfill e

•T. Philip nubinstein CDI
p*dio City Station, NY, NY 10101
n<?ar Mr.
•This is to acknowledge receipt of your letter dated May 20th, addressed to coi supporters , of which I have been only one. I appreciate the CDI orobloms outlined in your letter; however, those problems in no way satisfy m« with regard to my two loans of $X 0,000 each to CDI on 16 and 26, 1985 respectively.

It so happens that I could barely afford those loans at 1G# interest paid quarterly, that I suffered some anxiety during efforts to collect the first quarterly interest payments, and I desperately need the scheduled quarterly payments in order to cover my daily living expenses. vour appeal for patience and the recognition of GDI's problems may be oossibi? in the case of some of your contributors or supporters via lonnst but is impossible in my case. My expenses have increased and I need1 the money!
Certainly I am in no position to forgive the two $10,000 loans. But
be able to extend loans if absolutely certain of receiving 10^ quarterly interest payments on time or as scheduled. On May 26 I received a note from George Canning saying the payments might be Slaved sevpral weeks. His letter mentioned the mailing to all lenders the letter recently received from you. I need more than hope and excuses. I n^ed the payments in accordance with your written agreement, o^ at least that of Canning in acknowledging the two loans and specifying the payment schedules.
How can a man who talks so of improving political morals and of maintaining good national fiscal policies, and who (at the same time) claims not to have any idea who pays his own bills to allow him to live in luxury-how can he expect the voters to have confidence enough in him to nominate and elect him to the presidency?

<Sinc9 mv loans to'CDI have already drawn some unfavorable publicity in the Tampa Tribune, front page, Sunday, December 29, 1985 (check your files on this — received rather wide publicity and attention* including that of one of your private detectives), may I suggest a scenario to nerhaps enhance the image of Mr. LaRouche? ' Why not pay off this lender (me) with some follow-up positive publicity, nationwide, which might he ID negate the recent negative publicity which has been abundant of late. vou, as president of CDI, and cfr. Laf?0uche should give this serious thousrht. Good publicity would go a long way towards gaining rather than losing supporters.
Sincerely,
. Carter

For your information, I am lenders ;.o glva yon a more rilfferenfciating itself.

forwarding two lists detailed idea of how

of Infrastructure that situation is

first Is the beginning of lint of lenders who have retained a r. These cases range all the way from having received a first demand to having signed stipulations already entered into. These are c*at*s off the top of my head, and represent only a cursory sampling. I am (-eg -nnlng a ille-by-fl/i comprehensive lift from whlcn we can ofllect thn»jr, cases which require professional legal handling.
Tftn aeconl is a list of lenders who are subject to various hardships it' wa o nnot make some sort of regular repayment of their i»frartrui--'vr*;- loans. The list was requested by Gerry to ascertain a h/^t'.i lin^ figure for maintenance of these people. The*? ' arc! cs^-ps n wMnh ^t i* settled that some sort of emergency doea *»xist, wh i.•_; uc.ijixM; H. • require regular help after an initial payment (although fr f-t> i -r-f- »(-me cases which simply require a one-time payment. } Vidj'flN?r«r it lr efficient to scperate them from the general corpus of c* nc'sr-ed lenders who might receive occasional "tactical" paymenfs nectf?fary for us to continue some kind .of political relationship.
\ h.-i .'.phir case IP defined as one in which the lent er finds it either •--et; difficult, i-:r (in some cases) impossible to pay for fo-jl, MM; l^'ee, housinu or medical expenses without some payback from us. Mar.v peopl^ Jn thi» category are retired, and have liquidated either mv,-v, or all o£ tin*' r income-generating capital In order to make loans lc» ii There are some who are working age, but are either unemployed, ri !v: many dependents. Some have a bank loan for which monthly *r.»v.i'•-pents are paid by an automatic debit of their checking account, If tfcwy don't write a check first. Since they do not receive the promised from us to cover this expense, their ability to pay basic billy i* undermined.
to 4ay, both lists are waxing daily, especially the legal Ml of these people have been briefed for weeks or months on al harrsesmnnt ami financial demands of legal/security. Any on further handling would be greatly appreciated.

This ia a Htravel credit" loan on his American Express card. Amex is taking him to court, and he has no money with which to negotiate any sort of payment schedule. They will probably garnish wages, etc., if we can't back him up.
Edith Allison LOS/AL 200/wk 70,000
Edith is a hardship hal l-of-£amer. Since we first became aware of her, circumstances, she has had to give up her apartment and move to another town to live with lier son, who himself has kids and not alol of money. She is a bi t flaky around the edges, and it is sometimen hard to separate the fact from the fantasy when she describes her situation: however, we do know that her circumstances have deteriorated, and it is possible that she has foregone medical procedures because of lack of money (see correspondence).
Henry Bakker NYK/BP 200 4000
Alcoholic, has had a couple of strokes. Has almost no source of income other than us. In very bad shape psychologically and physically. Asks us for payment about twice a week.

Al Holmgren HOU/BD 1200/mo 100,000+
Al is an oil worker In Louisiana, who among other things took out a hefty 90,000 mortgage on his house. As he told the switchboard last time he called, "I want to speak to someone who either has a sympathetic ear or a cot for Be to sleep on." He is employed, things are unstable in the Industry, and when you're talking about the size of payments which he has to make to his bank, it doesn't leave much. His predicament is compounded by a liberal girlfriend (wife maybe?) who is a flawing witch, and a former journalist.
Lelf Johansen Minn./CGO 500 down 10K

His farm was ju«t foreclosed. He is living in the house for a short time long before he is kicked out. He will definitely need some help from us for income.

ThereTF a judgment against her for a mastercharge bill which is -edominantly organizational expenses incurred around 1980. The judge .-dered her wagea garnished, so she will not be able to pay rent if we

Banker in Houston who was turned down by his bank for a loan for a hip operation for his wife. She is in traction until she can get the operation.

Dear Shelley,
I have no idea whether or not.you knew what you were doing to,
me when you went wild with my Visa Card or not. You took all •
of my cash reserves and some of my monthly income* I had and
have no other income except $100.00 per month.'from an insur
ance policy. I have long ago used up the money I had in the ••,•••
local bank just for living expences. To get this far I have
had to mortgage my home and land;and my car. ..Mow that money .\.
is getting thin. > *ij j£ '..!'• j
I have written Mr. Phau several times. Back in September he -.;.->; sent me a check for $2,000.00 for partial interest payment. (. •,*". Since, then he has not even bothered to answer/my letters.
Frankly I did not think that you'were the type to get invol- r-ved in a SCAM such'as this. I have got to have some money and since your notes are well past due. When you "told me that La v
1 Roach desperately needed the money for a short time t aggreed to loand him some,,0r did 17? The records'shod that the money
/.went to Campaigner Publicatione.'I have been extremely patient • but the time has come that one way or another1I have got to get my money back. Letters from Phau or you do not spend worth a Damn..

Please get honest with me and return my money-and interestl -V'

Yours truly,

M. M..Brantly
