On Big Brother 15 racism and bigotry seem to be taking over the story line. While this is an unfortunate insight into what some young people are still dealing with, there is a lot more that we could be talking about. Candice has alluded many times to some secrets that Kaitlin has shared with her outside the house. I have uncovered the source of many of Kaitlin’s secrets. Well I have at least some of the tea. The secrets that Kaitlin shared with Candace are about her father. Click through for all the scandalous tea.
Kaitlin is from Vadnais Heights. I was able to find on Ancestry.com that Kaitlin’s father, who is in his 60s, is Richard Lynn Barnaby. Here is the document from the FBI site on his federal charges from April of 2010.
Vadnais Heights Man Sentenced for Selling Fake Stock
MINNEAPOLIS—B. Todd Jones, United States Attorney for the District of Minnesota, announced that a 59-year-old Vadnais Heights man was sentenced in federal court earlier today for bilking an investor out of more than $168,000 by selling him fictitious stock. U.S. District Court Judge James M. Rosenbaum specifically sentenced Richard Lynn Barnaby to 27 months in prison on one count of investment fraud through interstate wire.
Barnaby, who was charged on October 13, 2009, and pled guilty on November 17, 2009, was also ordered to pay $222,639.26 in restitution to seven victims.
In his plea agreement, Barnaby admitted that between 2003 and May of 2005, he operated a scheme through which he sold nonexisting stock in Teledigital, Inc., an actual company that marketed pre-paid cell phone software services and equipment. To carry out the scheme, Barnaby, who served as the company’s president from July of 2002 through September of 2004, told a potential investor he was the agent for some people who wanted to sell their Teledigital stock. As a result of that representation, Barnaby actually sold the investor approximately 1,400 shares of capital stock in Teledigital between November of 2003 and October of 2005 for an aggregate price of $168,402.26. However, instead of purchasing the shares of stock as promised, Barnaby kept the $168,402.26 for his own personal use.
In furtherance of the scheme, on May 25, 2005, Barnaby used the e-mail account of an acquaintance to forward to the victim an e-mail purportedly from an official at Wells Fargo Bank, stating it could not “clear” the Teledigital capital stock until the company became “whole” with the bank. Barnaby admitted he led the victim to believe the stock existed and was in the hands of Wells Fargo Bank.
This case was the result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney David J. MacLaughlin.[SOURCE: FBI PRESS RELEASE]
This explains (but does not excuse) Kaitlin’s seething anger just under the surface. This all began in 2009 and it is likely that her parents divorced during this time. He should have been released from the pen sometime last year. So that is the main thrust of her secrets. I admire Candice for not sharing them with the others (so far) despite the fact that once in the house, Kaitlin turned on Candace and joined in on the racist comments against her.
So, what do you make of this news? Who knew there were mean people in Minnesota? They are practically Canookians! :)
