Message From the Western Businesses & Taxpayers Association Regarding Ernie Slump

Yesterday we updated our article relating to a WBTA member's relationship regarding Doug Christie. In that update we included our additional concerns about Ernie Slump, also a leader in the group. Today we received the following message:

What a great site this is, it is however a shame there is reason for it to exist. Keep up the outstanding work. We need you! Below is a letter I am circulating to address Ernie Slumps comments.

Thanks Dan

This letter is in response to the recent comments circulating regarding Ernie Slump. The Western Businesses and Taxpayers Association do not support any offensive remarks and or actions, particularly regarding ethnicity, religion, gender or sexual orientation. David Crutcher and our Counsel have contacted Ernie to provide him with a forum to explain his comments.

Our policy is one of inclusion and we deeply apologize to anyone this may have offended. I will keep you up to date of any new developments.

We greatly appreciate you bringing this to our attention and I look forward to any comments or questions you may have.

Warmest Regards
Dan Doherty
Vice President
Western Businesses & Taxpayers Association.

While we don't support Western independence, we do seek to clarify their positions when it comes to pluralism and ethnic relations. We'll keep people updated as this story progresses.
