INTRODUCTION – Lu Esposito, PIO

 

Over the past couple of weeks AltCon and K98talk radio networks have been repeatedly and relentless pursued by a woman, who may or may not have been running an experiment, or may just be a cyber bully. On Wednesday, September 30, 2015, that woman was featured on Fox 5 Atlanta, WAGA, as a victim, in a report that repeatedly included a document, clearly visible, with the full name and location of a member of the AltCon Radio staff. The ‘woman from Colorado’, as Fox 5 Atlanta referred to her, was actually the victim, or one of the victims, of a relentless campaign that appeared to beattempted humiliation orchestrated and executed by their featured victim. For that matter, Fox 5 Atlanta may have been a victim themselves.

 

By the end of the first week, I found myself to be a target of her harassment, for merely offering to serve as the public information officer for this entire, Kathy Scott created mess, and for attempting to professionally correct her misinformation. This only led her to propagate the false stories on more websites and in new more harassing ways. The whole thing has been quite eye opening.

 

What was most shocking was the reaction of Fox 5 Atlanta. When we found out that our stalker was going to be talking about cyber bullying in a top 10 news market – well, just imagine if you had heard the same. Chilling, isn’t it? – I called the Fox 5 news desk, introduced myself appropriately, and asked if they were doing such a story. The news desk assured me they were not. I thought the issue was dead.

 

Around 10:30 I received a message that Fox 5 was teasing the story. I called the news desk again and was directed to a producer who told me that none of our people were featured in this story. Later, I found out that a staff member from AltCon did have her identity and location revealed on air during that story.

 

As a public information officer, I have never been misled by a news desk, news room or reporter. I’ve worked with media across the country, national and local, and I’m proud to say this has never happened before. I am saddened that it has happened now.

 

In addition, the news desk said that I could only view the content online, like everyone else, when it posts. I would love to link it for you here, however, it is still not posted, 13 hours later.

 

As of this morning, she still will not stop stalking me – forwarded by a friend:

 

Kathy Scott Harassment

Kathy Scott continues to harass me, behind a block. If friends did not share with me, I would not know.

 

STORY: Woman with a long history of questionable cyber activity featured on Fox 5 Atlanta as victim.

 

Denise Dillon of Fox 5 in Atlanta interviewed a purported victim of cyber bullying, who is actually a suspected bully, herself. The woman from Kennesaw, Kathy Scott, is well known across many social and digital platforms, after 2 years of cyber stalking media personalitiesjournalists and bloggers in South Dakota. Mrs. Scott is still making life difficult for internet users across the country. Unfortunately, like the man who has felt her wrath in South Dakota for over 2 years, few have the resources to pursue her legally.

 

A woman affiliated with K98talk in Cherokee Georgia recently received real threats from Mrs. Scott.

 

A police report was the basis for the story on Fox 5, according to the Fox 5 news desk, also listed the name of a host for AltCon Radio that was clearly visible. The ‘police report’ was actually a wellness check. The users’ concerned was based on the following Twitter activity by Kathy Scott – using the @1000girlfriends account that she claims to own, on her blog MeAndMy1000Girlfriends.com.

 

In one of these blogs, Mrs. Scott admits that her entire pattern of behavior was an ‘experiment’. Personally, I never agreed to be anyone’s lab rat.

 

The wellness check is suggested by Twitter as is the style of tweet used by the woman in Colorado, which references the Twitter @ address of local law enforcement @twitter and @safety. The Colorado woman mentioned in the Fox 5 story, whose name was not only given to her stalker, but also broadcast to Atlanta by Fox 5 News, asked Mrs. Scott several times if she was okay and was met with responses such as: Why are you telling me to kill myself?

 

The behavior by four accounts that are believed to be Kathy Scott: @DakotaFreePress, @WomansPartyUSA, @1000Girlfriends, and @BanMobTweeters included:

 

  • Pretending to be a 14 year old, a grandmother, and an African-American man to name a few
  • Acting disturbed or distressed and said her medication did not always work.
  • Talking about being threatened, when she was not.
  • Saying that other Twitter users were threatening to kill her or trying to get her to commit suicide when they were not.
  • Blogging that included accusations toward other Twitter users, including the woman in Colorado, of forgery, lying, and creating false documents.
  • Claiming that she uses her gun to kill ‘what was in front of her’ rather than for protection.
  • Claiming that she received emails that were never sent.

 

Over the next few days, the woman in Colorado became the target of Mrs. Scott. Informational reports have been filed in several states on Mrs. Scott’s cyber activities in the past week.

 

After several days of what seemed to be an obsession with the woman from AltCon in Colorado, Mrs. Scott moved on to the woman from K98talk in Cherokee County.

 

The stations, K98talk and AltCon Radio, are currently consulting separate authorities as well as counsel to better understand their next steps.

 

In addition, both @DakotaFreePress and @BanMobTweeters were suspended by Twitter for abuse of Twitter terms of service, due to the way Mrs. Scott was responding to and ‘quote tweeting’ other users including but not limited to fans of the radio show. The hosts and fans of K98talk and AltCon Radio were by no means the only Twitter users that responded to Mrs. Scott and were met with shockingly accusatory tweets by Mrs. Scott and immediately accused of harassing her when they clearly had not.

 

A simple Google search will return a revealing view of her activities in South Dakota. How could Fox 5 Atlanta run such a story without a simple Google search.

 

An additional rundown of the facts that were omitted from the Fox 5 story:

 

  • Mrs. Scott stalked a journalist in South Dakota, and his wife, for more than 2 years. This is also easy to Google.
  • The wellness check was not the only report available on Mrs. Scott. I personally filed a report with the Garner, NC Police Department on Tuesday, September 29, 2015. In response, she posted that I, Lu Esposito, had tweeted she was getting swatted. You can see from her own post, though it may be great click bait, it is not true. As of Thursday morning, she had changed the “swatting” charge against me to trying to have her arrested. I may could have, I don’t know because I did not try. I filed an information report only. http://www.ranker.com/list/7-things-my-cyberharassers-did-to-me-this-week/meandmy1000girlfriends?format=SLIDESHOW&page=3
  • Mrs. Scott has had several accounts suspended from Twitter
  • I was alerted to the fact that Mrs. Scott was going to be on Fox 5. I called their news desk, identified myself as the PIO for the stations, and they told me they were not running a cyber bullying story.
  • I called the news desk during the broadcast, again, to let them know who they were interviewing. They took my number for their lawyers.
  • Though she often deletes tweets from her Twitter timeline, all Mrs. Scott’s tweets can be found here: http://www.tweettunnel.com/1000girlfriends

    We believe that Mrs. Scott may have many more accounts

K98talk and AltCon Radio are independent talk networks featured on channels such as Spreaker, Stitcher, SHR Media, iHeart and TuneIn. K98talk is part of the Spark Media Network.

 

It is our understanding that Fox 5 Atlanta is owned by Fox Television Stations, LLC, as listed at their public web property


Ok, you are all laughing because who could take down any of Altcon’s radio hosts, right? I mean, we are all locked and loaded and we’re all tough as nails. I didn’t survive cancer only to let some Looney Toon get me frazzled. But, what is truly up with radical progressives who think they have the right to free speech, but everyone else needs to just shut up and get in line?

 

Recently one of our hosts was attacked by Kathy Scott of Great Scott Communications.  Scott is in PR communications and blogs from several low follower sites.  She has a Twitter account called 1000girlfriends.

 

Jodi made the mistake of commenting on a tweet Scott posted regarding a convicted former South Dakota state candidate. There were several back and forth tweets. Erickson debated the candidate was not a target of gender bias. Well, obviously no one else can have an opinion of anything because shortly after Scott was trolling Erickson from a sock regarding a scarf Erickson wore when she met Fiorina. Scott’s poor understanding of the law was that flag clothing was disrespectful to Vets. You can imagine this triggered many followers to correct Ms. Scott, and the trolling escalated quickly. Soon there were multiple socks attacking Jodi, as well as libelous blog posts. All were bizarre examples of confused writing. Seems odd she says she supports this convicted felon, yet continues to put negative comments out in public. No one else publicly wrote disparaging comments about this SD former candidate in public. Her blog is filled with comments about this former candidate. With PR friends like that, who needs enemies?

 

Well, when you actually have 1000 girlfriends, they have your back. Scott seemed to be very unfamiliar with support, as she was so furious she was soon shouting she would sue Hammy, then Altcon Radio, then she tried to get Laura Leigh fired and she Doxxed Diane. She went after K98 and their hosts. She went after our guest. It seems odd to me that a sane person in PR communications would be trolling South Carolina State Rep for Carly Fiorina.

 

See, what Scott doesnt get is what we have seen. We have lived through our former talk show hosts cyber bullies. We have seen Stacey Lennox, Sam Janney and Holly Fisher have their children’s photos posted by evil obsessive trolls. We have lived through d0xes, exposing our home addresses to trolls with hate in their hearts.

 

We have 1000 (plus) friends because we have become a tight knit family who has each other’s backs. If you really are not a friend, and don’t have any friends…. well, that may seem like ganging up. We call it protecting and defending our own.

 

So you can hate all you want. You can let us live rent free in that empty noggin from now until Christ comes, but let me just fill you in on something. We will push back. We will support and protect our friends and we will expose your desperate absurdity for what it is…..

 

A cry for attention.

 

And when you realize what great people we are, maybe you will have wished that instead of letting your hate and anger take over and viciously attacking, you will see that the only one looking hateful or pathetic is the lonely blogger hurling threats. #Muppets

Gun-FlagSo often I see conservatives arguing about the abject failure of gun control, citing cities like Chicago, DC, and so many others with very strict gun control and high incidents of gun violence. And then leftists inevitably respond that this is because gun control laws are not universal; if they were, of course there would magically be no more violence. This is a useless and never ending cycle of increasingly boring debate.

 

Here’s the thing, and it’s a frustration I have with the Right in most policy debates. We have to stop projecting our integrity onto our opponents. This is an almost impossible concept for conservatives to grasp and yet it is of vital importance. The simple fact is, gun control is working brilliantly for the Left because it’s accomplishing the opposite of its stated objective. The Left wants their gun control half measures to fail.

 

It isn’t news to the Left that their love affair with gun control is oppressive, anti-freedom, anti-constitutional, and ineffective. That’s how they designed it. Tyranny always happens by a slow fade and it always begins with creating an easily controlled, vulnerable populace. The reason the Left ghoulishly celebrates mass shootings like Columbine, Newtown, Navy Yard, and so many others is because they see their plan working. They know that a public justifiably heartbroken over horrific events such as these can be more easily manipulated in accepting their agenda because people want to do something. Leftists are counting on people not analyzing too carefully what that “something” is, and the fact is many don’t.

 

It is in this way the Left intends to accomplish their true objective, a complete nationwide gun ban that will not only render citizens completely vulnerable but also entirely reliant upon an ever growing centralized government. This is a goal they will never admit to, yet we see clearly it’s what they’re working toward not just with gun control, but with Obamacare, the public school system, ever increasing regulations on small business, and the like.

 

The Left has mastered the art of selling symbolism over substance that hides an evil agenda. They have mastered the art of manipulating emotions, substituting feelings for reality, and convincing an alarming number of people to act and vote against their own self interest.

 

The “it’s my right as an American according to the Second Amendment” argument is factually sound yet woefully ineffective at appealing to anyone other than conservatives. In times such as these where we’re literally watching our rights slip away from us, where we’re raising our children in a vastly different America from the one we grew up in, the time for preaching to the choir is over. The way to win this argument is to meet people where they’re at. We must beat the Left at their own game of appealing to people’s emotions.

 

When leftists pretend they want gun control to “protect the children”, we must counter with the fact that they are advocating the complete inability of children to be protected from madmen. We must ask them, “why do you want children to die?” When leftists pretend to be the “party of women” we must ask them why they want women to be defenseless, why they feel a woman raped and then strangled with her own pantyhose is morally superior to one standing over her would be attacker with a smoking pistol in her hand. We must ask them why they’re “anti-choice” when it comes to a woman’s right to defend her own body. We must ask these emasculated leftist “men” what trauma they suffered as children to make them wet their pants over a tool made of iron and wood.

 

Leftists aren’t that smart. It is so simple to beat them at their own game if we finally start fighting fire with fire.
