Monica Foster commentary: Considering that the tragic issue of child pornography has dominated the headlines of mainstream media as of late (just last week 400 children were rescued in a Canadian child pornography network bust), you would think that the self proclaimed “leaders” of the Los Angeles porn industry (namely the Free Speech Coalition) would be conscientious of not affiliating with anyone or anything linked to the crime.
Well if that’s what you thought…you thought WRONG. [Click here to learn about the Free Speech Coalition's history of DEFENDING child pornography]
Meet August Kurt Brackob (who is also known by the names Kurt Treptow, Kurt William Treptow, William Kurt, Treptow, Kurt William). He is the recently resigned Libertarian Party of Nevada treasurer and current executive director of Liberty Prospers / American Liberty Coalition (WeAreLiberty.org).
In late 2002 the Washington Times reported that a court in Bucharest, Romania found August Kurt Brackob guilty of sexual perversion and the sexual abuse of minors (pedophilia). According to BeforeItsNews.com, the scandal broke in September 2002, when investigators raided his apartment in Iasi, Romania where they discovered a number of photos and videos of intimate situations with children. In addition, Brackob was reported to have had inappropriate sexual interaction with two young girls (one 10 years old, the other 13), but Brackob’s attorney, Liviu Bran, claimed his client had sex only with the 13-year-old girl (and claimed that Brackob didn’t know she was a minor).
Brackob was sentenced to the maximum seven years in prison, but was released a little over 2 years early as reported by the BBC.
March of 2013 the Libertarian Party of Nevada of which Brackob was treasurer began responding to accusations of Brackob being a sex offender.
April 27, 2013 Kurt Brackob partnered with Free Speech Coalition executive director Diane Duke, porn industry attorney Marc Randazza, porn studio Evil Angel general manager Christian Mann & FSC / APC4C speaker Lydia Ann Gray (aka Julie Meadows aka Lydia Lee) for the “Individual Liberty in the Adult Entertainment Industry” discussion panel and luncheon (see the flyer above).
According to IndependentPoliticalReport.com – there seems to have been confusion that day as to whether or not Libertarian Party of Nevada funds were utilized to fund the luncheon (Brackob was the Libertarian Party of Nevada treasurer at the time). Individuals outside of the event became aggressive and security was called to intervene. Was the aggression linked to Brackob? It is unclear, however if you look at the comments on the report by Filippo Di Noto people in the organization were aware of Brackob’s past.
September of 2013 Brackob resigned from his position as Treasurer from the Libertarian Party of Nevada as reported on IndependentPoliticalReport.com
According to a recent interview with Brackob (which was conducted by Lydia Gray aka Julie Meadows), he is employed within the financial arena. According to Brokercheck.com Brackob is a broker for Wells Fargo Advisors, LLC.
In conclusion, one must wonder WHY the Free Speech Coalition (namely executive director Diane Duke) would choose to associate with Brackob. Pedophilia and Child Pornography are not just a hot topics in the media, they are serious crimes of which you would think the Los Angeles porn industry would want to stay as far away from as possible.
