Once again I have a dubious Internet character with government connections making preposterous allegations against me. Sigh.
Dave “Acton” Sweigert’s lawsuit against Jason Goodman has moved from South Carolina, where Goodman used his YouTube channel to shut down the Port of Charleston, to the Southern District of New York. Goodman is also the subject of an $18 million defamation lawsuit by (ex?) CIA case officer Robert David Steele in the Eastern District of Virginia.
Dave Sweigert has filed a motion to intervene in the Steele lawsuit as an interested party. Both he and Jason Goodman are representing themselves “pro se”, meaning without a lawyer. Sweigert has considerable experience in this, having successfully won a whistleblower case over CIA budget misappropriations in the same Virginia Court in the 1990’s. Jason Goodman has many lawyers on his show, including Larry “K.F.” Klayman, who was censured by a magistrate for inappropriate touching of his children – and lost two appeals trying to deny this.
The Court asked Goodman to specifically state under oath that he has had no legal assistance in preparing any of his filings. That seems obvious in his latest one, which is an elaborate conspiracy theory. He has accused me of conspiring with friends, enemies, acquaintances and strangers to launder money through the Steemit web site.
Jason Goodman has spoken about Steemit many times and had guests on his show to explain it to him, but he still doesn’t understand it at all. I have a plug-in for WordPress which automatically shares posts from this blog on the Steemit blockchain. Other Steemit users can upvote the post if they like it, each vote earns the post author “Steem Dollars”. The Steem blockchain is public, which means we can easily evaluate Goodman’s claims of a “vast money laundering conspiracy”.

Two of the other “co-conspirators” named by Goodman, Jacquelyn Weaver and Kevin Alan Marsden, do not even use Steemit.
The idea that I would risk my career, reputation, and freedom for $159 is preposterous. Likewise, it is silly to think that money launderers would use a platform where all transactions are visible to the public.
Jason Goodman’s absurd filing has necessitated me filing a statement defending my honor against these outrageous, libelous, and ridiculous claims.
