Just make sure they investigate all the way back....to when he was in charge too. He is just mad because him and his buddy Gary shanenberg were beat at their own game to come into and take over the Naples league, manipulatively, underhandedly, and dishonestly. Any monies collected is and was used for the kids in collier county and beyond!! I hope they are happy now....tell it to the thousands of kids that will not have a Christmas this year....pathetic.,

it is sad what I just learned about certain members of the Naples, Fl Marine Corps League. A power struggle...stealing or moving funds into the wrong hands....this just makes me sick. Grown men...Vet's...they should be ashamed of themselves. I hope their kids and grandchildren learn of this. It is no better then the idiot running this country. They should all shake hands..........in prison! I hope the Marine Corps takes the right action where ever and how ever it can.

Donors go into business, writes check for Toys For Tots, places checks in locked donation box placed by ET Brisson Detachment, box picked up by member of Detachment, checks deposited in local bank account (in violation of signed contract), donors get cleared checks and note alteration on the payee line, copies of checks given to "disgruntled" member who attempts to bring issue to appropriate members' attention and is met with organized resistance by Board of Trustees. Finally ordered by Dept of Florida Commandant to file charges. Filed incident report with CCSO. Now have to deal with personal attacks from Board of Trustees and members. This is the same Board whose members, when questioned by reporter, initially denied having a non-approved Toys for Tots bank account and then reversed themselves and admitted the bank account existed. Regardless, the only way the donors' checks were altered were by the donors, the manager of the business where donation box was placed, the Det member who collected the box, the Det member who counted the donations, the Det member who deposited the checks, or the bank's employee. Now, you tell me who had the access to checks and motivation? And I'm the bad guy for exposing these dishonorable and fraudulent activities. Anyone who condones these actions by these felonious individuals and bases their support on someone harming children's Christmas must either be a total liberal or has been living in a cave.

I welcome any and all investigations. I have nothing to hide. Unlike you, who can't even use your real name. Gary is not a "friend", however he is a fellow Marine who was mistreated by people like you. Yes, all monies collected for kids may have gone for toys, however the monies were used in an improper way and someone committed a felony in order to accomplish their goal. And yes, I am happy to tell the kids that their toys will be purchased honestly and with pride because they will know that the rules are being followed.
