Bosworth and Haber Sued Again for Unpaid Wages; Legal Defense Fund Used to Make Movies?

Do Annette Bosworth and Chad Haber stiff everyone who works for them?

That Sioux Falls paper reports that political scamster, convicted felon, and potentially defrocked doctor Annette Bosworth and her underemployed husband Chad Haber face another lawsuit from another employee who claims they didn’t pay him for his labor:

Mitchell Olson says he was hired by the Dr. Annette Bosworth Legal Defense Fund in June 2016 as a consultant. He was paid $4,000 a month from the fund, working primarily from the home of Bosworth and her husband, Chad Haber, who is also named in the lawsuit. Olson said he wasn’t paid for work he performed in May, June and July of this year. He says he is owed $24,000 for work that included scripts and video for movies [Jonathan Ellis, “Former Consultant Sues Annette Bosworth Legal Defense Fund,” that Sioux Falls paper, 2017.09.18].

Two obvious questions arise:

  1. Survivor player Mitch Olson, did you think you’d actually get paid by a couple who have left a trail of unpaid consultants and whose only obvious revenue stream is a sham legal defense fund based on delusional propaganda letters?
  2. When people sent Chad and Annette money to cover their legal expenses, did they envision their donations being used to produce movie scripts and, reveals a children’s book?

As was the case three years ago when Bosworth launched this latest fundraising scheme after the destruction of her Senate campaign and her arrest for petition-related crimes, I can find no legal record of any “Annette Bosworth Legal Defense Fund” in the Secretary of State’s business registrations. This purported fund remains an unaccountable money machine, looking for dupes in the form of donors and, apparently, employees.

  1. The IRS ought to investigate Bosworth/Haber.

    Did Haber ever get prosecuted for failing to timely file campaign finance disclosure? What ever happened with the fake raffle(s) that they sold tickets for and never gave out a prize? What happened with their previous employee lawsuits? How do they keep getting away with scams in South Dakota?

  2. Some raffle ticket buyers got reimbursed, but I don’t know of any action ever taken on the campaign finance form. Remember, South Dakota has no campaign finance cops.
