Jim Gilchrist, founder of the Minuteman Project, has been brought down, not by protestors rushing the stage but by internal strife in his own organization, and is now fighting to regain his power. According to current Minuteman leadership, Gilchrist improperly used the organization’s funds for his own purposes, illegally sent mail at nonprofit rates without filing for nonprofit status, and has not accounted for up to $400,000 in Minuteman funds.  According to Gilchrist, bitches set him up. The LA Times reports that Gilchrist accused his accusers of being motivated by “a greed for power and a false perception of an endless stream of money.” Meanwhile, they are upset with their former leader using Minuteman funds to pay his court fees in his case against them.  Gilchrist’s replacement? Marvin Stewart, his opening speaker at Columbia. Minutemen: we know they hate themselves, or at least each other. – DHI
