David Duke campaign contributor Vaughn Miller threatens lawsuit

September 23, 2017

Literally hobnobbing with royalty, Vaughn Miller, right, poses here with Prince Charles and five-time polo Player of the Year Carlos Gracida. Miller is evidently a member of an international team representing Wales that is regularly joined by Princes Charles, William and Harry. This photo begs the question, what would Prince Charles do if he knew “teammate” Vaughn Miller is a David Duke contributor? – Photo: Oak Point Polo

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.

Texas Secretary of State (SOS) document number 0801767544 for 5706 E Mockingbird Lane, Dallas, TX 75206, also matches the same SOS number for Vance C. Miller Company, LLC, owned by Vaughn E. Miller.

On September 20, 2017, Vaughn Miller sent me the following email:

“From: Vaughn Miller To: tenantsrule@yahoo.com

“Sep 20 at 10:41 PM

“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.

“Thank you

“Vaughn E. Miller

“Sent from iPhone”

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.

“Sincerely,

“Vaughn Miller”

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:

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.

Vaughn E. Miller, president and CEO of Vance C. Miller Company LLC, is a wealthy real estate mogul in Dallas, Texas. He can be seen in a photo with Prince Charles of England.

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.

According to the website for the VCM Real Estate Fund, Robert Yurglich is managing partner of Spicer Jeffries LLP, the independent auditing firm and CPA for the VCM Commercial Real Estate Fund.

“Robert Yurglich is Managing Partner of Spicer Jeffries LLP, the independent auditing firm and CPA for the VCM Commercial Real Estate Fund. Bob began his career with one of the three largest international accounting firms in 1972. Prior to forming Spicer Jeffries LLP, he was the managing partner of the Denver office of Spicer & Oppenheim (formerly Oppenheim, Appel, Dixon & Co.), a firm based in New York and London whose national expertise was in securities and commodities. He began working with over-the-counter investment banking, market making and retail brokerage firms in 1980, several of which were self-clearing firms. He continued to work with numerous broker-dealers and as a result began assisting various funds and other investment entities in the mid-1980s. In addition, Bob is well qualified in SEC practice as a result of working with a significant number of SEC reporting entities, as well as assisting many clients with their initial public offerings. He has served as an expert witness before the SEC, FINRA (formerly the NASD) and NASDAQ on various issues.”

According to Spicer Jeffries LLP, “Bob Yurglich received his Bachelor of Science degree from Colorado State University Pueblo and soon after obtained his CPA license. Bob holds current licenses in multiple states. He is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants as well as the Colorado Society of Certified Public Accountants. Bob is also a Regional Director of the Hedge Fund Association (HFA).”

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.

    This story is 100% FAKE NEWS, as the lawyer the 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. One has to question why the writer of this story would mention charities that Mr Miller has donated to. What kind of evil-hearted person would want to hurt a charity? This is clear evidence of a sociopath. Our law firm will shortly find out the the true identity of the author and we will “out” her (or him) for public shaming.

    So "Lawyer for Vaughn Miller," Are you saying David Duke lied on an official Federal Election Commission filing? How does that work? A Louisiana politician just pulls a random Dallas businessman's name out of a hat, along with his business address and decides to report to the FEC that the businessman donated $1000 to his campaign? Nice try but that's not how political campaign filing works. He has receipts. And so does the FEC.

    The address on the FEC report is a UPS store with dozens of mailboxes! https://dallas-tx-6207.theupsstorelocal.com/ This is not Mr Miller's real address. A simple google search reveals the address as a UPS Store! Yet this author thinks she's clever and can tie our client to the phony campaign contribution while besmirching charities Mr Miller has generously given to. What kind of sociopath person would want to hurt children's charities in an attempt to hurt Mr Miller over a phony report? We will be recovering damages.

    Again, nice try, but this address has already been verified as one of Miller's business addresses through publicly accessible records. Yes, there are several businesses at this address because it is a commercial building and one of the businesses is Miller's. Are you suggesting that David Duke submitted false documents to the FEC?

    All the file numbers listed below for 5706 E MOCKINGBIRD LANE SUITE 115, DALLAS TX 75206, are linked directly to Vaughn Miller, according to the records with the Franchise Tax records.

    Would the attorney for Vaughn Miller, care to comment about these additional records from the State of Texas?

  7. Selective Outrage?

    Where is the outrage over the author’s attack on the charities? Why is no one here outraged that this story’s author would attack children’s charities to get at Mr Miller? This post is mired down in arguing over whether or Mr Miller’s street address was correct even though he has “disavowed” David Duke. Come on Lynda Carson you are better than this. You’re operation was a success but you killed the patient!

    For The Record:

    There appears to be some concern about the nonprofits mentioned in the story above.

    I wish to point out that according to public records, the last 990 tax filing made by Prestonwood Polo Foundation Inc. — EIN 27-3102875, was for 2013. No 990 tax filings have been made since then.

    And the records reveal that the contributions, gifts, grants, and similar amounts received, amounted to $101,000.

    Out of $101,000, only $15,100 was handed out as charitable contributions.

      As the accounting firm for Mr Miller we can state unequivocally that once again, the author of this story is factually wrong and her research is questionable at best. Both 2014 & 2015 Tax returns have been filed for Prestonwood Polo Foundation under our signature and the entity is and has been fully complaint with Federal Tax law regarding 501(c)(3) tax exempt entities.

      I am posting on this blog as a favor to my client, I will not reveal my exact name here because obviously the author (so-called) of this story will direct her false attacks at me.

    One must ask if it is it morally defensible for the author to hurt charities when evidence is questionable and the subject of the story, Mr Miller, denies it's true and has disavowed David Duke?

    And only one of them has an office address matching the one on the FEC donor file. Nice try though.

    Furthermore, one might also ask is it morally defensible to accept donations for your foundation then not disperse those funds to the actually charities you claim to support?

    Here's some rope. Wanna dig yourself any deeper?

    Reply To Phony Attorney & Phony Accountant

    As much as the phony so-called attorney or phony so-called accountant try to lie to the public, the facts always contradict them.

    As an example, the search results below reveal only one year of results for Prestonwood Polo Foundation Inc.

    In comparison, the search results below for the United States Polo Association Inc., reveals three results.

    If Prestonwood Polo Foundation Inc., filed more than one 990 tax filing to the IRS, the Foundation Center records would reveal that. However, they do not.

    By the way, it is against the law for someone to impersonate an attorney, or an accountant…
