The government liaison of the Washington Times foundation, Gary Jarmin, raised money for his lobbying efforts by targeting senior citizens with “scare letters” on Social Security and Medicare, and has been operating some six organizations from what appears to be a drop box in Alexandria, Virginia, RAW STORY has learned.

The letters are sent from the American Federation of Senior Citizens, a group Jarmin founded with his father-in-law, Marvin Mondres. One such letter aimed at frightening seniors is signed by Mondres, the “Honorary Chairman” of AFSC, while other letters are signed by Jarmin.

Jarmin, an ‘operative’ of the Rev. Sun Myung Moon, the secretive and powerful head of the Washington Times, United Press International and the Unification Church, booked the room in a Senate office building in which the Rev. Moon was crowned Messiah (Washington Post). Jarmin was also responsible for the invitations that misled congressmembers into attending Moon’s coronation.

Jarmin’s letters scare seniors into believing Social Security and Medicare will collapse unless they donate and claim Democratic senators are working to “plunder” the Social Security trust fund.

[...]

RAW STORY has also discovered during the course of a four-month investigation that the mailing address given on the Social Security scare letters match that of five other organizations registered by Gary Jarmin.

That address–208 North Patrick Street, Alexandria, VA 22314–is little more than half of a row-house, possibly a mail-drop point.

Also registered at the same address as the American Federation of Senior Citizens and to Gary Jarmin are the following companies and organizations:

Christian Voice 208 North Patrick Street, Alexandria, VA 22314 (703) 548-1421

Jar-Mon Consultants (Global Dominion Communications Inc.) 208 North Patrick Street, Alexandria, VA 22314 (703) 548-4904

US Cuba Foundation 208 North Patrick Street, Alexandria, VA 22314 (703) 548-4904

American Christian Cause 208 North Patrick Street, Alexandria, VA 22314 (703) 715-6523 (703) 548-1840

Pacific Asia Foundation 208 North Patrick Street, Alexandria, VA 22314 (703) 548-4906

The Christian Voice has long been known to be a Moonie front group. Russ Bellant identified it as such in his groundbreaking expose', "The Coors Connection."

John Gorenfeld has more on this story, and the long alliance between Moon and direct mail king Richard Viguerie.
