Attorney General for the District of Columbia


July 22, 2015

The Honorable Karl A. Racine, Esq.

441 4th Street, NW

Washington, DC 20001

Reference:  Ms. Pamela G. Bailey, President, Grocery Manufacturers Association Concession of Guilt under Uniform Commercial Code §1-205

Dear Attorney General Racine:

On June 1, 2015, Ms. Pamela G. Bailey, President of the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA), was served a “Constructive Notice”, pursuant to §§ 1-308 (remedy), and; 1-103 (recourse) under common law as codified by the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC).  GMA is an IRS code 501 (c) 6 industry and trade association with its main offices in and operating in the District of Columbia and across the nation.

The Constructive Notice contained a sworn affidavit of truth that included 95 statements of fact and 38 exhibits of proof to demonstrating that GMA engaged in anticompetitive conduct in violation of Sherman antirust and other state and federal laws.  A copy of the affidavit of truth presented to Ms. Bailey for rebuttal and all supporting exhibits can be viewed and downloaded for your use on-line at

Dr. Bailey was granted 45 days (15 more days than the 30 day limit codified under the law) in which to rebut the facts as presented to her in the affidavit.  Ms. Bailey chose not rebut any of the facts as presented to them thereby “defaulting” at 11:59 PM on July 18, 2015.  Default having occurred, the facts as set forth in the Constructive Notice are now established as conclusive and dispositive facts in all subsequent matters of law in accordance with Uniform Commercial Code §1-205.

At this time and based on the now conclusive and dispositive facts under the law, we request that you open a formal inquiry into the facts and take appropriate sanctions against Ms. Bailey and GMA based on violations of civil and criminal laws of the District of Columbia and federal laws based on Ms. Bailey’s public concession of guilt in this matter.

To assist you further, please visit and click on the link, The Case of FoodQuestTQ, for a detailed report written at the request of the Federal Bureau of Investigation with all supporting exhibits detailing the actions of GMA and others involved in this matter.

For unexplained reasons all federal law enforcement agencies contacted in this matter have failed to act.  They will be contacted in similar fashion advising them of Ms. Bailey’s and GMA’s legal concession of guilt in this matter with a request to open similar inquiries based on District of Columbia, state and federal violations of civil and criminal laws.  We will provide you with these points of contact for coordination as soon as they become available.

If you wish to contact me for any reason please call at 240-439-4476 x-11.  We stand ready to assist you in any and all ways possible.  Thank-you for your efforts in protecting the rights of citizens by enforcing the laws of the District of Columbia.


Sincerely yours,

John's Signature
