UPDATED 3:51 P.M. EDT U.S.A. Peggy Hunt, a partner at Dorsey & Whitney in Salt Lake City, is the court-appointed receiver in the SEC’s Ponzi- and securities-fraud case against Traffic Monsoon and Charles David Scoville. Her impressive Dorsey bio says she has worked in the areas of bankruptcy and receivership law for more than 25 years and has served as “lead counsel to trustees and equity receivers appointed in some of the largest Ponzi and securities fraud cases in Utah.”
In a section on some of her professional and civil involvement, the firm notes “Peggy is passionate about advancing the status of women and girls in Utah. She co-founded and currently chairs the Utah Women’s Giving Circle of the Community Foundation of Utah, is President of the Utah Women’s Forum, and is a former President of Women Lawyers of Utah.”
But to Traffic Monsoon apologist Jose Nunes, Hunt, an officer of the court for close to three decades, is “Piggy,” a “[b . . . h” and a “Lying cow.”
These descriptors naturally reminded us of some of the things Donald Trump has said about women. Remarkably, Nunes took to Facebook to disparage Hunt just this past weekend, the same weekend Trump again was battling assertions that he is a misogynist.
Like Trump, Nunes may have a defective filter of some sort. The Traffic Monsoon huckster earlier came up with a “Revenue Shares Matter” campaign with a slogan of “RIOT.”
Such cluelessness is hardly unprecedented in the so-called revshare sphere. AdSurfDaily was a purported “advertising” program similar to Traffic Monsoon.
When the U.S. Secret Service raided ASD in 2008, operator Andy Bowdoin responded by comparing the agency to “Satan” and the 9/11 terrorists.
Some ASDers circulated a “prayer” calling for prosecutors to be struck dead.
When a receiver was appointed in the Zeek Ponzi case, Zeek apologists immediately launched verbal attacks against the receiver. One Zeeker suggested almost immediately that the receiver was guilty of a felony.
It is all a steaming pile.
