SHELBYVILLE, TN – In a desperate, but failed attempt, to refute and rollback the conclusive landslide 63% HR 1518/S 1406 Poll Results, the SORE Big Lick duo of Steve Smith and David L. Howard issued another “Baghdad Bob” like Press Statement trying to cap The Poll gusher.
The Smith/Howard joint release was posted on the TWHBEA website and The Walking Horse Report. It reflected the vote by Steve Smith’s HPA Violator dominated Executive Committee on January 17, 2014.
The poster face of Smith’s Executive Committee is this man:
First there was the “fatally flawed” Motion by the now resigned Loyd Black EC.
Then the Kakassy/Lantis/Howard conspiracy was exposed.
Then a “Keystone Cops” investigation conducted by Denise Bader Keyser of Germany.
Then the 2012 – 2013 TWHBEA Executive Committee, on whose watch “The Poll” occurred, exonerated Pat Stout on December 5, 2013.
Then Steve Smith’s SORE Big Lick crowd took over on December 7, 2013, and went on another “Witch Hunt” and fabricated a “REPORT”, then the “RESULT” of the “INVESTIGATION” was announced today.
Meanwhile, the rest of America and the International community are viewing the Canadian television program “HEARTLAND” episode which prominently featured Shelbyville, Tennessee as the Sore Horse Capitol of the World.
The program showed a Tennessee Walking Horse being rescued from abuse. The program triggered the world’s revulsion at an institutionalized practice of animal abuse known as the SORE Big Lick Tennessee Walking Horse.
This “racket” has made David L. Howard a rich man. Howard is backed by Shelbyville, Tennessee power broker John T. Bobo who is also on the Celebration Board. The Celebration has now lost about $2,000.000.00 over the last five years attempting to promote and defend the SORE Big Lick.
Regarding Smith/Howard attempt to cap “The Poll” Gusher, the HPA violators on Smith’s TWHBEA Executive Committee acted with total disregard for the association’s Corporate Rules and By-Laws governing the 7,600 member breed registry, nee’ 20,000 members ten years ago.
Led by HPA violator and U. S. Senator Lamar Alexander Campaign Finance Chair Steve Smith who ordered a “REPORT” “as quickly as possible”, the TWHBEA EC voted to suspend the member privileges of Pat Stout, Fran Cole and Clant M. Seay because they would not submit to an improper “investigation” which did not comport with the Association Rules or By-Laws.
The Rules require that a written Complaint be filed stating specific charges detailing any wrong doing and be accompanied by a $250.00 filing fee.
That was not done.
Current HPA Violator and By-Laws/Enforcement VP Tom Kakassy produced a draft of a Complaint at the Executive Committee on September 26, 2013 in an attempt to intimidate, but he did not file it.
Shortly thereafter, Kakassy was exposed as quarterbacking a conspiracy which apparently included David L. Howard and Christy Lantis whose removal as Director from California is presently the subject of a recent federal lawsuit against TWHBEA.
Meanwhile, public opinion continues to cascade in against the Big Lick establishment, and in favor of passage of HR 1518/S1406, Prevent All Soring Tactics Act.
It looks like the SORE Big Lick has painted itself into the proverbial corner:
And the train has left the station.
