Here is the quote that Randy Bauer claims he never made that the USCF
would quickly make back the $200,000 it spent to move to Crossville.

Randy Bauer repeatedly denied ever making this statement while running
for election in 2007.

In reality, the USCF has LOST $300,000 since moving to Crossville.

Should Randy Bauer be recalled for lying to the voting members?

The issue is that one of the EB members might have to go to jail, and
if the company (USCF) goes
bankrupt, what does it cost to move the HQ back to a big city, like
New York. The move to Crackville
was discussed over a decade before it was done. Discussing the costs
of the move, is fair game until
at least 2020....

Get some new material Sam.

Your entertainment value is plumetting, you need something new.

Looks like your info pipeline has run dry.

Use your investigative powers to discover the real story behind the
ebay.ca auction of My 61 Memorable Games.

Crossville move is ancient history now. We don't want re-runs.

Is this because of the writers' strike?
