Tulsi Gabbard’s alleged ties with a money laundering ring (Part I)

Originally posted on Twitter. (Apologies for the Tweetspeak.)

Is this a dare, or a double dare? 🙃

On meanwhileinhawaii.org, Christine Gralow alleges: A chain of health food stores in Hawaii is owned by a criminal. 2 guys, implicated in his crimes work for him. Butler is co-owner of these health food stores. Other Hindus work/shop at these stores. It’s all *connected*.

Something like that, anyway.

So… the parent company of the company that owns these health food stores is QI group, which Eswaran & Bismark co-founded. Tibby worked for the company (he’s now retired). According to Gralow, they’re all wanted criminals in India & the Philippines.

According to Gralow, Eswaran and Bismark are wanted in the Philippines for racketeering. Tibby is wanted in India for “absconding” charges of money laundering. So… they’re dirty a/f, tho (she adds), she doesn’t know if any of this “illicit” money made it to Tulsi’s campaign.

Except: She is grossly elaborating, and there was/is no criminal activity. She omits the fact that all the charges and claims were found to be bogus and were dropped. These are legit businessmen. I think I’ll take the word of Forbes over her bullshit blog.  https://www.forbes.com/sites/donaldfrazier/2012/10/24/selling-a-better-life/#593cba4f5fe5 …

Eswaran lives in Malaysia & doesn’t have anything to do with SIF or Butler, other than founding a company that Butler owns stock in.

There is no such thing as a SIF money laundering operation. Gralow is sooo full of crap.

It is also untrue that QNet is banned in India. They’re just not in whatev registered database as QNet. They go by a different name there.  https://qnetindiagroup.blogspot.com/2013/08/faqs-about-qnet-in-india.html …

Also good to know: NYmag deleted the part about Qnet that Gralow fed them, from their article about Tulsi’s “weird” upbringing.
