Thanks to a tip via the Ogle Mole Network, we've learned the foundation that sits on over $1-billion in assets and, ironically enough, provides funding to the OK Homeless Alliance, recently took some extraordinary steps to run off a homeless veteran who set up shelter near their downtown offices.
We know this thanks to a resignation email that was sent out by the foundation's former IT Director – Lorien Faulker.
According to Faulker, he was tasked with switching off some power outlets on the outside of the building that a homeless man, named Mario, used to charge a phone. I guess the Foundation's leadership figured it would be a good, passive-aggressive way to make Mario relocate to some other building downtown.
Faulker – a man who apparently has values – refused to go along with the foundation's plan and voiced his disapproval.
In his resignation email, Faulkner then documents how the organization moved forward with Operation Remove Mario. He explains how they apparently removed a bench outside the building that Mario would use for shelter and confiscated a couple of trash bags that held his possessions. These acts left Mario in tears, and led to Faulkner's resignation.
Naturally, we acquired Faulkner's resignation email that documents the saga via the Ogle Mole Network. It gives a little inside look at what really goes on within the preferred charitable foundation of the Oklahoma City establishment and ruling class.
