    Re: Huffington Post ~ Melinda Ballard ~ Daniel Heimpel ` Mold

    Posted by Sharon Kramer on 2/21/10

    It is such a small world, isn't it? The Huffington Post wrote a
    beautiful tribute to Melinda Ballard's father, Claude Ballard Jr. in
    February 2010.

    Melinda Ballard has been a staunch advocate for those injured by mold,
    etc, in water damaged buildings. Melinda Ballard agreed to an
    interview with Daniel Heimpel of LA Weekly in the summer of 2008 about
    another staunch advocate for those injured by mold, me.

    Heimpel INTENTIONALLY misquoted Melinda Ballard for the article in the
    2008 LA Weekly article to the benefit of the US Chamber of Commerce to
    be able to continue to perpetrate an interstate fraud on the courts
    over the mold issue (scientifically proven the poisons of mold do not
    poision). This is the same fraud that Melinda fights against in the
    name of public health. Heimpel's fraud of the matter was edited by
    Jill Stewart of LAWeekly. Stewart has such a horrible reputation of
    skewing journalism, that the LA Times wrote about her in 2009.

    Melinda Ballard sent a message informing LAWeekly's then editor, Laurie
    Ochoa, regarding Daniel Heimpel's and Jill Stewart's FRAUDULENT writing
    for LAWeekly evidencing for them several statements of INTENTIONALLY
    misquoting Melinda to aid and abet the US Chamber's fraud that is
    adverse to the health and safety of the American public. See Melinda'
    message to LA Weekly linked below:

    And NOW Daniel Heimpel, clearly evidenced as a bonified shill for the
    US Chamber of Commerce who has assisted them to be able to deny
    causation of illness from environmental exposures, has morphed into a
    social advocate for children, who is a blogger for the Huffington Post.

    Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive!

    Thank God for people like Melinda Ballard in this world who will always
    stand up and tell the truth!
