Harry Welty

Recommended Posts

I am a JFK conspiracy skeptic but I am open to serious research about the interesting little dust bunnies that history tried to sweep under the rug after JFK was murdered. Coincidentally, conspiracy enthusiast, Jim Fetzer, is a neighbor of mine but I'm non-plussed by his theory that Paul Wellstone's charter plane was brought down by an electromagnetic pulse. In my opinion Fetzer's work mostly serves to discredit other assassination researchers.

I'm a local eccentric in Duluth, Minnesota. I'm an ex-liberal Republican (I'm still a liberal) who has failed to establish much of a political presence in our very Democratic oriented part of Blue State, Minnesota. I'm best known in town for my winter snow sculptures.

I was a history teacher and served on the Duluth school board for eight years. I run for office promiscuously. I just ran a Quixotic race for Congress. It was my 12th campaign but my 5,508 votes were about 150,000 votes short of a victory. http://www.welty4congress.org/

I was a columnist for our local tabloid the Reader Weekly and my columns and other miscellaneous stuff can be found with a little poking around on my Internet closet: http://www.snowbizz.com/. I also blog every so often at http://www.lincolndemocrat.com/

Six months ago an interesting lead from another JFK website wetted my appetite to dig deeper into the 1973 Boyd Scandal which is closely tied to HHH. The new lead involved yet another long forgotten Minnesota scandal from a decade earlier, 1963-64, that threatened my Father's pension. My father was particularly chagrinned about this at the time because he had been a fraud investigator for the Kansas State Insurance Commission prior to moving us to Minnesota. This time period coincided with LBJ protégé, HHH's, move from the Senate to the Vice Presidency when money would have been at a premium for the 64 presidential campaign.


This earlier scandal involved a failed Minnesota insurance company (like the kind my Dad used to investigate) which managed Minnesota's state pensions. One of the company's leaders threatened to expose the state's Democratic party to charges of corruption (he never did) while another executive who was sent to prison later claimed to have information about the Kennedy Assassination.

I don't know where my research is headed but it is an interesting little cul de sac.
