An employee at Jensen & Associates registers Stop The Steal Committee, a new tax-exempt political organization. Jensen & Associates is a firm led by Roger Stone friend and attorney Paul Rolf Jensen. The day that Stone registered Stop The Steal 1.0 in 2016, he paid the firm $20,000.
While Jensen himself isn’t listed on the IRS registration for the Committee to Stop the Steal, the group’s listed address is a UPS Store mailbox located near the firm’s physical address, and its custodian of records, Ashley Maderos, worked at Jensen for a time as a post-bar law clerk.Salon
The UPS store address isn’t new for Stone. Two PACs Stone operated in 2016 were run out of a UPS store in Santa Ana, CA. Guess who is connected to those PACs…
Jensen & Associates.
One of the firm’s only lawyers, Erin Boeck, may be the spouse of Brad Boeck, who served as treasurer for two of Stone’s PACs. The principal, Paul Jensen, may be related to Pamela Jensen, who set up Stone’s Women v Hillary PAC.
Jensen & Associates made two loans to [Committee to Restore American Greatness PAC (CRAG)] of very specific amounts: 2398.87 and 2610, which were repaid less than a week after the second one was made. And in 2016, CRAG paid the firm almost $100,000, including $20,000 in April when Stop the Steal was set up, $23,700 in four different payments in July 2016, and a $9,500 payment on August 3, when Stone was out in LA claiming to Sam Nunberg to be dining with Julian Assange.
According to its website, Jensen & Associates does things like sue for dog bites, not set up political rat-fucking PACs.emptywheel
Before joining Jensen & Associates, Ashley Maderos worked as an intern for former Rep. Dana Rohrabacher. The lawmaker has been accused for years of working for the Kremlin, and he recently worked with Stone to pressure Donald Trump towards pardoning Julian Assange.
