Independent Report Alleges Top Officials With the Clinton and Obama Administrations Illegally Terminated 8(a) Firm's Multimillion-Dollar Contract and Handed It to Associate

ST. LOUIS, MO--(Marketwire - Jul 17, 2012) -  An independent investigative report drafted by The MPM Group, Inc. -- an international litigation-support firm located in Marlton, N.J., that specializes in contract and criminal law -- alleges federal officials illegally terminated the Notice Redesign Contract that had been awarded to St. Louis-based Jireh Consulting, Inc., dba The Writing Company. The report also alleges federal officials diverted the Notice Redesign Contract to Kleimann Communications Group (KCG), a politically connected start-up company linked to officials in the Clinton Administration. The report states KCG continued to perform Notice Redesign Contract-related work for more than a decade.

The report notes that for years, the office of the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) -- the agency charged with investigating waste and abuse at IRS -- attempted to protect presidential appointees Nancy Killefer and Lisa G. Ross, among others, by hindering The Writing Company's efforts to secure an investigation of the contract termination. Killefer was appointed by Presidents Clinton and Obama; Ross was a Clinton appointee.

According to the report, "[I]t would appear that the senior staff members including, but not limited to, Treasury executives Lisa G. Ross and Nancy Killefer... and others identified herein, initiated a well-planned, albeit illegal, effort to wrest the properly awarded Notice Redesign Contract away from an established 8(a) firm and award it instead to a newly established non-8(a) firm, Kleimann Communications Group." The report continues: "TIGTA, its attorneys and support staff spent hundreds, if not thousands, of man-hours at taxpayers' expense covering up the contract termination."

Jerroll Sanders, The Writing Company's president and CEO, says, "Officials at IRS and TIGTA carried out a devastating campaign of retaliation because I persisted in making their illegal acts known -- which included destroying the firm I worked 11 years to build." Sanders says she is concerned that TIGTA, the agency that spearheaded the retaliation, has been charged with investigating claims in The MPM Group Report (Complaint #55-1202-0050-C). She adds, "This far-reaching cover-up demands the personal attention of President Obama and United States Attorney General Eric Holder, since certain Clinton Administration officials who were involved are now serving in the Obama Administration." According to Sanders, the website publicizes evidence from government files substantiating claims in The MPM Group report. She notes that U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill's office also is looking into the matter.
