Annie says:
Alfredo, I don't understand why you are taking credit for something you apparently have no involvement with. Please explain to me, one of the people that was involved.

Annie says:
Thank you Angelo.

Alfredo, now I understand why Carmine and EllenB speak for you.

You are the one taking credit for the
Poppenhusen Institute repair and clean up project. No one has ever heard of you. You say we are insulting and disgusting and trying to discredit you, how by telling the truth? You have had nothing to do with this community effort. Please explain yourself.

Carmine says:
No!! He does not have to explain himself to you or anyone else. He is a good man trying to do good things for this community.

EllenB says:
Actually Annie he hasn't said anything here.

None of the comments posted on this site were by Al. I do not speak for him, I just know the truth and what is really going on here.

Al would never take credit for anything he was not involved in.

Al had nothing to do with the museum and has never said anything contrary. The people who posted as Al on this site have an agenda to discredit him.

I assure you I am real and my name is Ellen.

Hi Annie, the work you are doing at the institute is great but as for this guy, his MO, if you will is to take the credit for something he never did then only if someone calls him out on it, he claims it wasn't him by using different names such as EllenB or Carmine to denie his falsehoods, blame an impostor and present him as a Saint.

Nuts?, Oh yeah!

Hey EllenB, You not omly speak for him, you are him.
