these years, the loan solicitations which carried out this scheme to defraud.
I think Mr. LaRouche clearly was the leader of this organization and the leader of this scheme to defraud as well. While it was carried out through others, they were acting at his direction. And throughout this time, while the organization said they were unable to repay loans, while the organization was draining away the life savings of so many people, Mr. LaRouche in fact lived quite well. He lived on an estate which I know the Court saw photographs of. He had a budget of a couple of thousand dollars a week to pay for the expenses of that estate and also to pay for his personal maintenance. So while others were losing their life savings, Mr. LaRouche was living quite well, and of course as the Court knows, he wasn't paying taxes on the money he was getting.
