John H. Meier and I have had several communications since his initial comment on my blog piece on Robert Gay and Mitt Romney. Link to post below –
Mr. Meier has recently been contacted by the Canadian Government informing him U.S. Officials have requested an interview with Mr. Meier regarding his knowledge of the Gay’s, Howard Hughes and Hughes Medical in regards to Bain Capital.
Robert Gay is the son of William Gay. William Gay was part of a coup that took control of the Hughes Corporation. Robert’s uncle is, Dr. Wilbur Thain the brother-in-law of William Gay, one of Howard Hughes last physicians who kept Howard Hughes drugged the last years of Howard Hughes life. Thain was from Logan, Utah and brought in to supply drugs to Hughes, which he did until Hughes' death. Thain was later indicted by a federal grand jury on federal drug conspiracy charges
Robert Gay is a former Bain Capital partner of Mitt Romney’s. It has been reported that the Gay’s stole billions of dollars from Hughes Medical and some of the stolen funds were pumped into Bain Capital in the form of derivatives.
I have appreciated the time Mr. Meier has spent in communication with me. I understand my former husband, Samuel Skousen, is sending out disparaging e-mails and making negative statements about me in an attempt to discredit. This has been a difficult and painful journey for me, not only with the intense force used in attempts to discredit, but the abuses suffered as attempts were made to cover-up. Some people came into our lives feeling ‘victims’ was emblazed on us and took full advantage of our plight, often adding further harassment, in their efforts to exploit our family’s peril for themselves. Mr. Meier understands the type of harassment we have faced.
