However, the station did not deliver any of the merchandise within 30 or 60 days, nor did it send the required delay notices.
...Instead, the station manager privately informed her staff – and also let it be known to the foundation’s executive director and board – that she had already spent the money intended for acquisition of the promised (and paid-for) merchandise, and therefore would not deliver that merchandise until a year(!) past the order date…..

In some cases ... the station manager would purchase only a few copies from vendors, then illegally duplicate tens or hundreds or thousands more to fulfill the balance of orders.
This has been going on at WBAI and other Pacifica stations for many years….
“5. Pacifica’s attorney provides deceptive and destructive advice to management and staff members = ….
foundation’s attorney, Dan Siegel, issued an email announcement saying that she should continue her solicitations, because Pacifica was exempt from punishment under the FTC Mail Order Rule. This was false and misleading advice,….”

This article is intended to share any and all information that appears legitimate, of concern to all who contribute to any of Pacifica Radio Stations - as they are by implication complicit in any actions done in their name as "stakeholders", "subscribers", "sponsors" "volunteers" -
if maybe not as mere $$$-donors.
Any direct concerns should be written with honest questions or reactions to the California Attorney General’s Office Department of Justice - Registry of Charitable Trusts Refer to : Pacifica Foundation Radio Complaint # CT011303
as well as to that radio station manager, LSB members, your own local media outlets, and to all concerned. Exposure of poor or mis-mangement of business practices or financial dealings must be given full Light to help heal, if possible, the mold, rot or decay that may be pervading our radio stations ability to sustain.
If all who pay their hard-earned money to maintain these non-profit entities, in what is perhaps now misplaced trust , MUST act in good faith and do report, inform, share and advise those who may be ruining what we have for so long loved and paid-for.
Anyone who 'doesn't care' and 'doesn't have time' to do anything, or even be uninterested, may be actually Contributing to what is being stolen, ruined, or ravaged or even deliberately mismanaged [for the purpose of taking the salvage for themselves at a cheap price when bankruptcy finally occurs].
