Interesting email from Michael Skolnik about the NEA call

← return to Water Cooler

The Washington Times obtained a partial list of participants on the August 10 teleconference call hosted by the National Endowment for the Arts, the White House, and United We Serve. The list was apparently sent out by Russell Simmons’s political director Michael Skolnik. However, when the Washington Times asked Mr. Skolnik if he could authenticate the list, he only responded he could not authenticate the excel document we sent: (click on the image of the email exchange to enlarge)

That’s funny. Mr. Skolnik’s electronic signature was part of the excel document along with his company name, Soze Productions. Moreover, The Washington Times also has a screenshot below of an email from Mr. Skolnik showing that he sent out the list of names, associations and contact information. (click on image to enlarge). The email also shows that Mr. Skulnik was scrupulously correct in keeping the focus off politics and on the United We Serve initiative, unlike a participant in the call from the NEA.
