John List Gone But Amazon Account Executive Exploited Claudia Like Bezos the Staten Island Workers

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell Book
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY / Amazon, SINY, April 1 -- It was the last day of the government's case against Larry Ray, with the three Santos' mother, through an interpreter, and then the recorded prison calls of Larry Ray. He was saying, let's collect all the evidence about Claudia Drury trying to poison me.

  There was a break, and Kurt Wheelock tried to write other stories. One from the SDNY Magistrates Court, and another about the formation of a union at Amazon on Staten Island. It was ironic: Isabella Pollok worked there, with a GPS ankle bracelet. She was facing trial - was she now in a union too?

   Once the jury had been sent home until Monday, Ray's lawyer Glenn Ripa testified. He had been an IRS agent; now as a lawyer he advised Larry Ray he didn't have to pay taxes on the million dollars from Drury's forced prostitution, since he claimed it was a personal injury repayment.

  It was an absurd idea. Why couldn't Pablo Escobar say his millions were all from a Medellin slip and fall? Kurt who had, like Ripa, gone to Fordham law school listened with interest, half expecting the Marshals to be called to arrest Ripa. Maybe a bar complaint would be filed after the trial. Ripa was told to return Monday at 8:45 am.

  Kurt would be there too. After more #JohnListGone, the Amazon connection, on Patreon here.

[It, like a song about Lev Parnas was also covered, behind a paywall, by New York Magazine which had this to say about Inner City Press' covered in late 2021 of the Ghislaine Maxwell trial, book here via one of the companies with an executive on the John list.]

 When Inner City Press for investigative reporting was roughed up and thrown out onto First Avenue from covering the United Nations of/by UNSG Antonio Guterres, many did nothing. But as we've previously noted, the First Amendment stops at First Avenue. We'll have more on this, here and on other platforms.
