from nyt obit, june 6 2018, (rbt d. mcfadden) Melvin Weinberg was born in the Bronx on Dec. 4, 1924, to Harry Weinberg and Helen (Jordon) Weinberg. He had two sisters, Marilyn and Sylvia. He attended P.S. 86, in the Kingsbridge Heights section (right near Lehman,) but dropped out of Samuel Gompers Industrial High School for Boys, (#6 subway line, 145th area, 455 southern blvd.) now closed, in the Bronx in his first year.
J. Karl Stark, a laundry owner in Pittsburgh, lost $3,750 to Mr. Weinberg in 1976, but said it was almost — though not quite — a privilege to be taken by him. “Oh, he was good,” Mr. Stark told The Times. “It was worth the money to watch him. He was very smooth. A real con artist.”

this pittsburgh press newspaper wants you to sign in with an email address AND a password, which i can never figure how someone’s supposed to do that unless you have a “dummy” gmail account or what just for these log-in things, of which there are alot of them and i’ve been avoiding them but could really use this article, and i’ll put its url here till maybe someday i can figure out how this works: www . newspapers . com /newspage/146774509/ == and this equals the pittsburgh press, june 11, 1981, page 23, right in the middle of the page, and a photo of rosalynn carter above and to the right of weinberg’s photo. the top of the page has, Face It: your lifestyle, personality show, and then the whole page is like that, hallucino ideas of reference to the “lethal cartridge’s” pornography off of me, in that rosalynn’s said to have/have had a weak eye, that the system always had this “tearing at the fabric of the people of this country” uppermost in its system-takeover mentality, that’s always crawling all over me still now. I mean that they were “swirling” up a brewhaha, brouhaha, off of linking me to the carter administration’s “energy crisis” main theme i guess, the same way they had with the Abu Ghraib and me in Brooklyn, morph-swirling the 2 subjects/places together in their “magic” voyeurism. But I’m going to have to drop this subject for now because such references to mrs. carter are rare I’m sure, nothing i could find and in all this emergency always, today. then tomorrow i just found out i have to be here to return that philip johnson book, no renewals on inter-library loan books i guess

John Francis Good was born in the Bronx on June 17, 1936. He received a sociology degree from Fordham University in 1958 and served in the Navy before joining the FBI. The bureau posted him to Manhattan, among other field offices, before stationing him in Hauppauge, N.Y., where he retired in 1986. He later founded a firm of private investigators, Lawn Mullen & Good.

Frances Tarlton Farenthold, tx politician, 1926 – 2016, excerpt from her papers’ biog: With the emergence of the Sharpstown stock fraud scandal, in which Houston banker Frank Sharp was accused of bribing lawmakers in 1971, Farenthold joined other representatives, named by their opposition as the “Dirty Thirty.” The group proposed a resolution for an investigation into the roles played by Texas House Speaker Gus Mutscher and other legislators in the scandal and into the history of the bills Sharp was accused of promoting through bribery. Although the bill did not succeed and redistricting eliminated Farenthold’s district, Mutscher was found guilty of his involvement in the scandal, and Gov. Smith’s and Lt. Gov. Ben Barnes’ political careers were essentially ended by the scandal.

something i won’t be able to find again, a book review by agent thomas j. baker on david howard’s Chasing Phil: the adventures of 2 undercover agents… , a recent book. in the amazon review he mentions having known fuller and mccarthy, them going down to alabama on a different of the same sort as abscam. (found a photo of david howard and maybe he looks like agent fuller.)

march 31, 1981 mccarthy testified but there’s nearly nothing on this guy, maybe because weinberg hadn’t liked him, but he’d still been partner with fuller afterward.

that cbs sixty minutes con man book then had a chapter on joe meltzer that i didn’t get but today was thinking maybe he lks like that abraham zapruder, which probably he doesn’t, but i’m seeing that he was somehow connected with the abscam business, this being an april 1982 short ap article on that:

says meltzer had a brooklyn accent: sandiegoreader dot com slash news/1982/aug/19/cover-this-man-would-like-some-answers/# == this is wild about the illegal abscam-connected meltzer bs and etc. Toward the end i guess it explains that meltzer’s scams had him in trouble so he’d volunteered to be an informant, knew of a political corruption and they added him to the abscam abdul enterprises to accommodate him.
I’d have to micro-check the dates on this but perhaps this guy’s blaming the feds caused the abscam whole thing to get backed off of, which maybe had gotten it backed off of me somewhat….
