Email Exhibit: UW Title IX Investigator Michael Kent attempts to retrieve VA records

As of 10:23 a.m. Monday December 19, 2022, the Gonzo-19 fear and loathing documentary will be entering the phase of filing complaints with the VA records division.

The charges seek holding Title IX Investigator Michael Kent accountable for his role in the complaint filed against University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Veterans Resources Coordinator Kris McMenamin.

The exhibit is part of the upcoming documentary and attachment to the UW-W Journalism Independent Study 498 project.

What is a Machiavellian Business Practitioner?

A Machiavellian manipulates victims through lies and deceit according to Vocabulary.com.

Machiavellianese speaks lies and deceit on public record, which is a term created for rhetorical analysis.

The analysis sample is located in the mandated reporting profile chapter contained in the independent study. Kent’s report, shared in the independent study submission, is a new form of Op-ed journalism converged with expose called an “Op-Expose.”

The content shares mechanisms for self-defense when under attack by a corrupt official.

The following email chain shares the desperate attempt to bring fraud on my registered trademark and is available on the UW-W public server.

Exhibit Overview

The email chain manifested into a coercive communication exchange requesting I turn over my VA records by the University of Wisconsin Title IX Investigator Michael Kent, who was assigned to my complaint regarding the ongoing biased usage of the veterans lounge at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater.

I am seeking punitive damages and charges filed for an attempt to breach my privacy. My VITAL Social Worker Elizabeth Stapleton and I met recently to discuss my ongoing abuse by the university.

She witnessed Kent’s attempt to request she assist me with turning over my records.

Michael-

 

Upon deliberating and looking over our notes, I have decided not to allow any state agency access to my Privacy Act of 1974 protected VA records. I have cc:d my social worker, Elizabeth Stapleton, for my records. I am notifying the Joint House and Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs that the University of Wisconsin, when conducting investigations regarding veterans with disabilities, uses a coercive method, which I was not instructed in the beginning of our interview I had the option of withholding. I am concerned the university is behaving unethically with peeking into an area that is off limits to state employees. I am requesting Congress and the House review the ethical practices of the investigative process. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.

 

Respectfully,

 

Bradley J. Burt

Good Afternoon Mr. Burt,

 

I do not believe any additional conversation would be productive for either of us.  Anything that you would like to have included as a response or supplement to the draft section of the report that I provided to you should be submitted to me in writing by Monday 11/21/22 at noon, per our agreement as expressed in my e-mail to you at 4:28pm on 11/17/22, which you acknowledged in your e-mail to me at 11:02pm on 11/17/22.

 

Thank you.

Good Afternoon Mr. Burt,

 

We are not in conflict.  It is not necessary that you agree with anything I tell you.  It is not necessary that I agree with anything you tell me.

 

The only thing I need to receive from you that is relevant to my investigation is your written response to the draft that was provided to you, identifying anything you believe is factually, objectively, inaccurate.

 

I don’t need any information about your coursework.  Unless your professors are witnesses to Mr. McMenamin discriminating against you, then I don’t need to hear from any of your professors.  I am only evaluating your complaint that Kris McMenamin discriminated against you on the basis of your age or veteran status, or retaliated against you for filing a complaint.  My investigation is strictly limited to that issue.

 

By Monday at noon, please provide me with the final copy of your written response to the investigation draft you were provided.  If, as you state, your current communication style is a choice, then I will advise you that it would be more helpful for you to use plain English in your response, without the use of any “reinvented” words or phrases.

I will look forward to seeing your response.  Thank you for your cooperation.

Dear Mr. Burt,

 

For the benefit of the record you are creating on this issue:

 

We met on Friday, October 28th, 2022 at the MATC Truax campus.  Prior to that meeting I told you that you were free to have someone there to support you if you wished.  You did not bring anyone else to the meeting.  During the meeting, I told that that because we were evaluating a claim of discrimination based on the denial of a requested accommodation for a disability, that it would be helpful to be to see the records associated with your disability.  I asked if you would be willing to sign a release for your treatment records.  You declined.  I told you that was fine.  I told you that if you changed your mind to feel free to let me know.  We then proceeded through the remaining 90 minute investigative interview.  As you did not want to sign a release I have not sought or received any of your VA records.

 

I don’t understand why you believe any aspect of that exchange was illegal or unethical.  I can assure you that an evaluation of the underlying disability is a standard practice for this type of investigation.

Good Afternoon Mr. Burt,

 

I am interested in understanding the concerns you have about UW-Whitewater and any mistreatment you feel you have received.  My investigative role is limited to the formal discrimination and retaliation compliant that was filed with UW-Whitewater.

 

I don’t fully understand what you mean to communicate with some of the terminology and phrases that you use, but I expect I will be able to get clarification when we meet next week.  To help you prepare for that meeting, this is what to expect during the interview:

 

  • I will be asking about specific, observable conduct.  That is, I will be asking about what you witnessed people say and do.  In the words of fictional police officer Joe Friday, “Just the facts.”
  • Different professional relationships have specific meanings and legal obligations.  When you talk about other participants and witnesses, I will be asking about their official, formal, relationship to you.  For example, I will be asking if Mr. Harris is formally assigned as your social worker or case worker by the VA.  This may or may not be the same as how you define their relationship to you, but their legal relationship to you is important.
  • I will be focusing very specifically on the discrimination complaint you have filed.  You may have other valid concerns about other issues arising from your enrollment at UW Whitewater, but my assignment is to investigate the discrimination and retaliation complaint.

 

I hope this helps define your expectations for our meeting.  I’ll contact you early next week to arrange the specific day/time/location of our interview.  Have a good weekend.

 

-M. Kent

Mr. Kent-

 

I have attached, for transparency reasons, the point of contact at the Wisconsin Ethics Commission, which supports my lobby claim from our discussion. I have cc:d my Mission Act lines of sight, who are social workers aiding me in bringing my supports on campus, which is part of my lobby for bringing my supports to UW Whitewater.

 

I stated, for the record, the contents contained in the email to the state address my concerns regarding the lobby license waiver. The point of contact provided can assist you with information regarding this transaction, which is happening in 2023. For the record, you never asked me to submit my proof before writing your rough draft. You did not consider truths such as how a lobby is organized or how a person, like me who registered as a candidate for Congress in 2020, organizes a lobby campaign, which happens over two-year sessions.

 

From what I understand with my background as a corporate health communication major, a person does not need a license to lobby. They can do so through a nonprofit organization without one. I am asking you please consider all the factors involved here. I am preparing my lobby, which is my capstone. I stated that clearly. I never stated I was a registered lobbyist. I stated that I was pending my registration through my waiver.

 

I will not provide my VA records based on the premise I am not required under the Mission Act to do so. I am seeking my services on campus and have received retaliation for doing so. Both Stapleton and Harris were witnesses to the retaliation either directly or indirectly when I began trademarking “mandated reporting,” which is a term I use regarding Title IX academic abuse.  Although the term refers to children, under my trademark, I reserve the right to redefine terminology. For example, the term “PowerPoint.” Under your scrutiny, you would have noted the person who developed the term “uses terms unique to themselves,” which bars my merit. I ask you please consider your words carefully.

 

McMenamin, per Dr. Yarbrough’s request, needed to be involved and involved him only under a confidentially contingency. I will reflect on my recalling of my exchanges with McMenamin I provided you for my ongoing retaliation in my report. He enforced I use state services, which constitutes the tort of intrusion in both my business and academic affairs. Lemke intruded by contacting Vice Chancellor Grace Crickett and Dr. John Fons. Richard Harris will confirm this, who is my key witness to the ongoing academic targeting and abuse I receive.

 

Do you need me to copy and paste this email with my response? If you need to investigate my POW MIA corporate and health lobby capstone as a double major, please click the link I have enclosed to the website that is my ongoing lobby ad hoc press room where details from my college experience will be posted starting in 2023. For the record, and for your report, I am a double major who does not receive transfer credit for my Technical Studies Journey worker associate degree. I am also a corporate and health communication major.

 

The university will not recognize, even though my journey worker electives are a part of my Academic Advising Report, the 39 credits I received for my journey worker certificate. I am the first double major construction worker in the state of Wisconsin. Intro to Mass Communication ties into my journalism major. My trademark and patent tie into my employee assistance keynote speaking workshops that are a part of my subcommittee for my nonprofit organization.

I am lobbying for the use of the “Purple Room” to store a VA server. I have discussed this business with McMenamin under strict confidentiality for POW MIA inclusion. Please reflect truthfully specific details that your claims you are making against my merit. My merit is my buy in.

 

My Veterans Crisis Line, VA PTSD denial for service connection, and employee assistance survivor story allowed me the use of the Veterans Crisis Line at my previous employer, which is your referencing to my “suicidal 2017” identifiers. Branding me as suicidal are your words from your perspective. You do not take into account that I am treated and creating mindfulness workshops for veteran readjustment and that I am an honors student in three honors societies. I have a confidentiality agreement with my previous employer, which is why I am concerned with our use of a public server. I must refrain from providing you with details, which is why I am asking you to omit. I give interactive presentations to corporate citizens who are helping me build Outpost 422. We are meeting Monday virtually. I am unsure how my business ties into your scope with Title IX. I will request more information in my follow-up with you on Monday.

Dear Mr. Kent-

 

I have connected with both Congressman Mike Gallagher and Congressman Scott Fitzgerald regarding our interview on Friday where you casually suggested I sign off records to your investigation without advising me of my Privacy Act of 1974 rights. I constitute this behavior as coercion and a past practice. I have requested Congress investigate the University of Wisconsin with their record retrieval process. I am requesting indictments for invasion of privacy. The records are not for state-level government view. You are a state investigator. Congress will be contacting your superiors regarding our exchange and investigative practices for a discretionary and ethical practice being conducted by the University of Wisconsin. Please refer your questions to the parties cc:d in this email if you would like to discuss this matter further. I am requesting a third party be present moving forward.

 

Respectfully,

Good Afternoon Mr. Burt,

 

I have reviewed your objections.  I will take them into account in drafting my final report.  If you wish to submit a statement about your objections, I will attach it to the investigatory report.  The official report will only contain information which is relevant, probative and accurate, but you are free to include any information you wish in your statement.

 

On a few specific points:

  • The report may include information about your mental health if that information is relevant and accurate.  The included information about your mental health and past treatment was information that you published on your public-facing websites, or disclosed during our interview.  The Privacy Act of 1974 is not applicable in this situation.
  • I reviewed the IRS on-line databasefor 501(c)(3) corporations.  The Sacred Warrior Church of Native America Inc. is not a registered 501(c)(3) corporation.  It looks like you may have registered that organization as a nonstock corporation in the State of Wisconsin.  That is not the same thing as being registered as a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation with the Internal Revenue Service.  A non-stock corporation is not the same thing as a non-profit corporation.  In addition, there are different designations for non-profit corporations under the IRS code and a 501(c)(3) is a particular designation with particular rules that must be recognized and approved by the IRS in order to claim 501(c)(3) status.

 

As I said, if you would like to submit a statement regarding your objections, I will include it with the report.  If you would like to secure the assistance of a social worker or other qualified advocate to assist you in drafting this statement, or if you would like to have your social worker speak with me, or if you would like to have a meeting with me at which your social worker is present, I can accommodate any of those requests.

 

If you are unsatisfied with the outcome of the investigation, you will have the ability to appeal the determination.  There is no mechanism for you to appeal before the investigation is finalized.  If you wish to file a complaint against me, on the basis that you believe I am biased or have a conflict of interest, you will have the opportunity to do so after the investigation is finalized.

 

If you wish to provide a written statement about your objections, please do so by 5pm on 11/17/22.  Thank you.

 

-M. Kent

Dear Human Resources-

 

Recently, my investigator, Michael Kent, met with me at Madison College, whose interviewing ethical methods have me concerned. Who would I speak to regarding my abuse of process concerns. Kent did not allow me to give my full testimony before interviewing the complaint respondent at UW Whitewater.

 

Instead, he interviewed the individual and commenced asking me questions regarding the respondent’s claims made against me. This methodology, in my professional opinion as a journalism major, warrants an inquiry. I do not believe my due process rights were respected and am asking Kent be excused and new investigator assigned. Also, Kent attempted to retrieve my VA records for the investigation. The interview felt like an interrogation. Kent subversively tried to get me to sign off on the records, which has been brought to Congressman Scott Fitzgerald’s attention. His office referred me to Assemblyman Hebl, who I am attempting to contact within the next week.

 

Again, as the complaintant in any level, whether education or legalese, due process would have waited to interview the repondent once I filed my full complaint. My investigation has been tampered with. I am asking for a new investigator be assigned.

 

Respectfully,

 

Bradley Burt

The blog represents the next phase of the journalism major development. Upon deliberation, the Gonzo-19 documentary now reflects barriers at both Madison College and UW-W. The documentary is the price disabled veterans who transfer from the VA VITAL Program undergo to receive their education.
