Fallout is fast for Allied Veterans, lobbying team resigns

The lobbying team who represented Allied Veterans, and its software company International Internet Technologies, terminated its relationship yesterday in light of the federal investigation into racketeering when they determined that the company has misrepresented itself to them, said its former spokeswoman Sarah Bascom.

The lobbying team:

   Sarah Bascom
   H. Douglas Bruce
   Carlos M. Cruz
   Scott Dick
   Richard E. Gentry
   Ron Greenstein
   Jeff Hartley
   Eliakim Nortelus
   William Gregory Turbeville

International Internet Technologies and its owners and affiliates have spent $340,000 in campaign contributions in the last election cycle and $195,000 in the 2010 cycle. Allied Veterans also gave $25,000 to Gov. Rick Scott for his inauguration and the money went to the Wounded Warriors program.
