Associated Press has a cursory overview of this silly allegation leveled at Mike Saltzstein by James Pantera:
A San Diego swim coach alleged to have multiple identities and a felony conviction fired back Tuesday, calling his accuser a "bully" with a checkered past.
"... James Pantera issued a statement one day after a complaint was filed with USA Swimming by Mike Saltzstein, a former vice president with the governing body.
The statement said Saltzstein is "attempting to smear the name of a well respected and liked swim coach and official" who has passed numerous background checks*. It also points to Saltzstein's legal issues, saying he was involved in an insider trading case more than a decade ago. ..."
"... The statement also referred to a 1999 case that Saltzstein settled by paying about $6,000 to the Securities and Exchange Commission, without conceding any wrongdoing.
*I am going to put that to a test tomorrow. I will pay for a background check and post all the results. If he has a felony record then one has to ask why is allowed to coach? Why, at the very least has he not been suspended pending a USA Swimming investigation?
If he was never certified a level 5 ASCA coach then would this act of lying preclude him from being a part of ASCA or is ASCA okay with that?
