Jody May-Chang on Melaleuca CEO Frank VanderSloot

Independent journalist Jody May-Chang has written an excellent piece on Mitt Romney’s campaign finance co-chair Frank VanderSloot.

Frequent readers will recall that May-Chang, this blog and others were recipients of takedown notices last month by attorneys working for VanderSloot’s Melaleuca company.

In the article, published this afternoon on Boing Boing, May-Chang offers more details on the history of Frank VanderSloot’s activities, as well as her thoughts on what she calls the “whitewashing” of the Idaho CEO’s “tarnished image”.

Among the nuggets contained in May-Chang’s piece: a quote from former Post-Register reporter Peter Zuckerman regarding how he felt during the Eastern Idaho Boy Scout scandal.

May-Chang also includes a paragraph from The Boise Weekly in which reporter Ray Ring wrote in 2008 that Melaleuca’s call center was being used to help persuade California voters to support California’s Prop 8.
