"Hunter Adams, the brains behind The Street Sweeper (thestreetsweeper.org), helped launch the site last year, just eight years after federal prosecutors labeled him an associate of the Gambino crime family in New York. Adams, who was convicted for his role in a massive "pump and dump" scheme involving penny stocks, is still on federal probation for his crime."

  123.  
  124. From Wikipedia:
  125. "In November 2000, the NASD (now FINRA) sanctioned Asensio & Company Inc. and Manuel Asensio,
  126. for Short Selling, Trade Reporting, and Internet Advertising Violations.[5]
  127.  
  128. In July 2006, the National Adjudicatory Council of the NASD upheld a hearing panel's
  129.  ruling[6] that barred Asensio "from association with any NASD member in any capacity"
  130.  and fined him $20,000.
  131.  
  132. Recent shenanigans, this time involving for-profit colleges under the guise of his "non-profit":

  134.  
  135. ----------------
  136.  
  137. Herb Greenberg and Universal Display
  138.  
  139. (Unable to find series of tweets from Manuel Asensio directly to Herb Greenberg.  This occurred
  140. in late summer 2011)
  141.  
  142. Aug 23, 2011 CNBC video where it's evident Herb knows very little about Universal Display:
  143. http://video.cnbc.com/gallery/?video=3000040976
  144.  
  145. Oct 3, 2011 Herb acknowledges the infamous Melissa Davis piece
  146. http://twitter.com/#!/herbgreenberg/statuses/120893256656625664
  147.  
  148. Nov 9, 2011 CNBC video, all of a sudden Herb is an expert on host materials, which he
  149. characterized as a commodity business.  However, he obviously didn't know that host materials
  150. are customized to match emitter materials.  Hardly a commodity.  Who's feeding Herb this
  151. information?
  152. http://video.cnbc.com/gallery/?video=3000056397
  153.  
  154. Manuel Asensio (again):
  155.  
  156. First, note this reference in the Melissa Davis article quoted above:
  157. http://www.eally.org/about-us/board-of-directors
  158.  
  159. http://blogs.barrons.com/techtraderdaily/2011/11/07/panl-patent-claims-denied-in-german-hearing-says-watchdog-group/?mod=yahoobarrons
  160.  
  161. Barron's post where Manuel Asensio states
  162. “Their biggest claim was that they owned phosphorescent OLED,
  163. but any such claim was invalidated,” says Asensio."
  164.  
  165. This was a false statement, the claims were broken out so UDC still retained rights to
  166. the iridium based patents:
  167.  
  168. http://seekingalpha.com/article/306429-universal-display-s-ceo-discusses-q3-2011-results-earnings-call-transcript
  169.  
  170. "Also late last week an old hearing was held before the European Patent Office on an
  171. opposition against one of our fundamental phosphorescent OLED patents. The opposition
  172.  was joined by a number of European companies. The European Patent Office announced
  173.  this decision at the hearing to maintain our patent with fundamental claims directed
  174.  to OLEDs comprising phosphorescent organometallic iridium content. We expect that the
  175.  official niche from the old hearing will be published in the near future and a written
  176.  decision will follow up. We are extremely pleased with this result."
  177.  
  178. Finally, Herb tries to muddle his way through the patent issue.  Clearly he has no clue
  179. what is going on.  The key question is, who is spoon-feeding him all this clearly incorrect
  180. info?  Is it Manuel or Melissa or both?
  181.  
  182. http://video.cnbc.com/gallery/?video=3000055526#eyJ2aWQiOiIzMDAwMDU1NTI2IiwiZW5jVmlkIjoiZnNxMHNoT09KbUl2cU9DVDNKTkZFZz09IiwidlRhYiI6InRyYW5zY3JpcHQiLCJ2UGFnZSI6MSwiZ05hdiI6WyLCoExhdGVzdCBWaWRlbyJdLCJnU2VjdCI6IkFMTCIsImdQYWdlIjoiMSIsInN5bSI6IiIsInNlYXJjaCI6IiJ9
  183.  
  184. There is one more CNBC video where Herb becomes practically apoplectic over the issue and
  185. tries valiently to put together a coherent sentence about host materials.  But, again, he
  186. knows absolutely nothing about the topic so it's a fruitless exercise.  Unable to find.
  187.  
  188. Note that in the period short interest skyrocketed from around 7 million shares to over 10 million
  189. shares.  If fund ownership is close to 80%, where are all these borrowed shares coming from?  There are
  190. only around 35 million in the float.
