In the face of incontrovertible documentation revealing him to be a campaign contributor to KKK fascist David Duke, wealthy Dallas real estate mogul Vaughn Miller is threatening a lawsuit after being outed as a donor to Duke’s failed 2016 Senate campaign.
According to Wikipedia, David Ernest Duke (born July 1, 1950) is an American white nationalist, politician, anti-semitic conspiracy theorist, Holocaust denier, convicted felon and former imperial wizard of the Ku Klux Klan.
The recent violent white supremacist rally that David Duke attended in Charlottesville resulted in blood in the streets when Heather Heyer was run down by an alleged Nazi sympathizer while she was protesting against the KKK, neo-Nazis and white supremacists. Reportedly, 19 others were injured when the Nazi sympathizer plowed into a crowd of peaceful demonstrators.
Public records reveal that Vaughn Miller gave $1,000 to David Duke’s failed Senate campaign in 2016.
Corporation Wiki reveals that Miller is connected to many corporations, their locations including 5706 E. Mockingbird Lane in Dallas, Texas. That’s the address listed for his $1,000 campaign contribution to David Duke.
On September 20, 2017, Vaughn Miller sent me the following email:
“From: Vaughn Miller To: email@example.com

“Hi Lynda Carson,
“Please delete this false story about me that wrote, its false, I never donated to David Duke or any other campaign: https://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2017/09/20/18803058.php
“Be advised I will take legal action against you if it’s not removed in 24 hours.

Miller also had his VCM Real Estate Fund website shut down on the morning of Sept. 21. However, the archived VCM Real Estate Fund website is available with the Way Back Machine.
In response to my Sept. 20, 2017, article called “Nonprofit organizations accept donations from David Duke campaign contributor,” in the comment section of the story, someone who claims to be Vaughn Miller made a statement claiming that this is a “fake news” story.
It reads: “STATEMENT BY VAUGHN MILLER: Hello, this is Vaughn Miller and this is my statement regarding this FAKE NEWS story. My lawyer and accountant have made statements stating that I have never donated to David Duke. Furthermore I HAVE DISAVOWED the KKK, David Duke and any related groups. I am a Trump supporter and voted for Trump, however I DO NOT support the KKK or Duke. I do not know who this person is writing this false story or why she is attacking me but I can assure everyone that this is FAKE NEWS. Please do not let this horrible woman intimidate you. Stand up for what is right and don’t buy into false stories. My legal team is working on having this site taken down and recovering damages that this story has caused me and my family.
If this was really Vaughn Miller claiming that this was fake news, he failed to explain how his name is on record with the Federal Election Commission as a campaign contributor to David Duke. Indeed, he also failed to explain how an overview of Vaughn Miller by Corporation Wiki linked him to 5706 E. Mockingbird Lane, Dallas, Texas, the address listed for his $1,000 campaign contribution to David Duke’s failed Senate campaign of 2016.
In addition to David Duke, wealthy Dallas real estate mogul Miller has also been giving donations to some nonprofit organizations, including Children’s Advocacy Center, Wipe Out Kids Cancer, Bryan’s House, Special Olympics Texas, Family Gateway, Project Transformation, North Texas Food and The Family Place.
If this was really Vaughn Miller claiming that this was fake news, he failed to explain how his name is on record with the Federal Election Commission as a campaign contributor to David Duke.
There has not been any response at all from the nonprofit organizations that were sent emails revealing to them that Vaughn Miller’s contributed $1,000 to David Duke’s failed Senate campaign in 2016, including Bryan’s House, Wipe Out Kids Cancer, The Family Place, Special Olympics Texas, Project Transformation or North Texas Food Bank.
None of the nonprofit organizations appear to be outraged, or concerned. They have not come forward to make any kind of statement claiming that they want to distance themselves from Vaughn Miller because of his campaign contribution to KKK fascist David Duke.
In other claims that this is fake news, allegedly written by the lawyers for Vaughn Miller and his accountant, in the comment section of “Nonprofit organizations accept donations from David Duke campaign contributor,” they stated:

“This is FAKE NEWS, as the accounting firm representing Mr Vaughn Miller we can confirm that he has NEVER donated to Mr Duke. This kind of lie is hurtful to both our client and the wonderful charities he has raised money for. The writer of this story should be ashamed and the owners of this website should delete this FAKE NEWS thread immediately.
“Accounting firm for Mr. Vaughn Miller”
Indeed, if these messages really come from the lawyers and accountants for Vaughn Miller, they failed to post the names of their firms. Nor did they discredit the incontrovertible evidence of Miller’s contribution to Duke.
The best that Vaughn Miller and his defenders could do is threaten legal action and claim that I’ve written “fake news.” This all sounds very similar to the stupid tactics of the liar in chief at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. in Washington D.C.
If these messages really come from the lawyers and accountants for Vaughn Miller, they failed to post the names of their firms. Nor did they discredit the incontrovertible evidence of Miller’s contribution to Duke.

As this story continues to unfold with Vaughn Miller threatening legal action after being outed as a campaign contributor to David Duke’s failed 2016 Senate campaign, it has not been picked up yet by the local media in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
