As most of you have seen online, there has been a shameless response to my initial release of information from the Master Tae S. Lee organization including Master Joe Whitworth.
 
Two days ago, the LMA Championship Facebook page announced that “Master Lee and his affiliated schools [which there are only 2 left at this point, one being Master Joe Whitworth’s school] dedicate this year’s LMA 2018 Championship to the victim-survivors of sexual-assault.” They claim that a “portion of the proceeds raised will be donated to support the survivors of sexual assault.”
 
Just 5 days before the tournament? They have been advertising this tournament since December 10, 2017 but make this proclamation just 5 days before the tournament, after my email exposing their scandalous actions, and after many, many schools from all over the Pacific Northwest have pulled-out of the tournament with full refunds. This seems a bit contrived. But I suppose that is good if my initial release of information prompted them to donate money to such a cause. I will be curious to learn the exact “portion” of their proceeds that they ultimately contribute.

I received the following rebuttal to the Corrine Harrington letter on Robert Morrison who was suspended by USAT via Safe Sport issues.  Mr. Whitworth is a friend of Mr. Morrison.

Everyone, please keep in mind Safe Sport is NOT a criminal legal process except for mandatory reporting.  One can be suspended by Safe Sport without ever being arrested.  I just don't think people really understand the process.  I personally think that while I appreciate that one could and should be loyal to their friends.  Get it. However, when one is dealing with a Safe Sport issue and one has children they are charged with protecting them.  Since this is not a USAT sanctioned event as far as I am aware, doesn't matter who does what when or where.  However, one should also not be surprised when others question the same decisions.

Here is the letter that came out this morning replacing the first draft I got last night.  I am always happy to post the other side.  For the record, as long as Mr. Morrison is not associated with any sanctioned USAT clubs, schools, events I am not aware that anyone is violating USAT or Safe Sport. If one, and I am not aware of this being the case, were having Mr Morrison involved in classes, tournament etc..  I would think that this probably ill-advised.  I have reached out to the email address I had for the original author Corrine, but have had no answer.

 

Congratulations Executive Director McNally!  At last someone who communicates!

It took awhile, a long while, to get the page back up.  I do recommend that anyone reading this switch to the facebook version as with all I have on my plate, updating two of these gets to be a little time consuming.
