PLEASE Sign this Petition to Investigate the Green Group Behind the Harassment of Martha Boneta


To: Speaker of the House John Boehner, Chairman Bob Goodlatte Judiciary Committee, Congressman Darrell Issa

Small Family Farmers are being Forced off of their Land by Land Trust

We Demand Congressional Investigation!

  1. There is growing evidence that the Piedmont Environmental Council (PEC), a private organization authorized by the Department of Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as a 501c3 tax exempt educational foundation, has engaged in systematic harassment and violation of the civil rights of a farmer  in Fauquier County, Virginia in an attempt to force her to abandon her small farm.   PEC is also the conservation easement holder on the same property and was the owner of the property when it issued an easement to itself.

  2. To obtain that goal, it is charged that the PEC operated in collusion with a private real estate firm to lobby a Fauquier county zoning manager, plus members of the elected country board of supervisors, to issue zoning citations against Mrs. Boneta’s property.

  3. There is also evidence (through electronic messages) that the PEC met directly with members of the county board of supervisors to specifically discuss and plan direct harassment of the Boneta farm.

4.The PEC is alleged to directly or indirectly be responsible for a sudden IRS audit of the Boneta family, particularly in light of the fact that former IRS Chief, Margaret Richardson now serves as a board member of the PEC.

  1. The PEC, a 501(c)3 non-profit Land Trust that has received millions of dollars to acquire conservation easements, entered in to a private confidential documented contract with private real estate entities and in doing so it is believed the PEC has possibly violated their not-for-profit tax status.

  2. There is no oversight committee whatsoever to oversee these Land Trusts. As a result they are in a position to abuse power.  There must be a congressional oversight committee to protect the welfare of the American public at large.

Therefore, I, the undersigned concerned American citizen demand an immediate congressional investigation into the evidence of the charges of collusion and the harassment campaign waged against the Boneta family by the Piedmont Environmental Council. The PEC’s actions indicate possible violations of its 501c3 educational status as a result of the PEC’s lobbying for legislation and regulations for the purpose of using the power of government to target one farmer  for the PEC’s personal gain; and, as a result, the possible need by the IRS to immediately revoke the PEC’s tax-exempt status.

Why is this important?

The PEC is a 501(c)3 non-profit land trust that uses tax payer’s money to obtain conservation easements.  The PEC is alleged to have acted in direct conflict by engaging in actions that have included contracting with private realtors in a confidential agreement. .

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
