Morgan - Barteaux - Gell

Morgan was adopted by Melinda's parents and so carried the name 'Pillsbury' for a part of her life. Her born name was Barteaux and she is the biological child of Melinda's first husband, Richard Lee Barteaux.  Because she carries the attributes of her biological father and not the values of the Pillsbury Family here we refer to her only as Barteaux. 

Her marriage to Jay E. Gell in 2005, which took place in Charlotte, North Carolina in front of a judge.  Morgan was several months pregnant at the time.

Intimidated by Fund's attorney, Talk decided not to publish the article, titled, "Sex, Lies, and the Tape. The John Fund Story."  The article was published only online.  Gene Gaudette, who I hired to up up the original RuthlessPeople site, had the article and tape up on American Politics Journal until a short time ago.

The Deposition
By law, unsigned depositions cannot be reproduced or circulated.  This document was provided to John Fund by Green Hills Software, this documented by one of Craig's girl friends.  We have contact with her and she is willing to testify to this fact.

This was the document used to persuade third parties Morgan was crazy.  Morgan is not crazy, but disordered.  

This is a downloaded copy from the now defunct John Fund site. Since it has been in the public view continually from the date he put the site up, June, 2003, until around May of this year, eleven years, let's assume multiple copies exist from this same source. 
Pages 8 - 14 
Page 8 – Admits to witnessing battery on Melinda by Craig, January 1997.  Strikingly, shows no emotion over the incident.   
Pages 23 - 30
Page 23 – Morgan admits talking to Craig and reinforcing his assertion Melinda is an evil person. This section illustrates the ability of psychopaths to redesign reality to suit their purposes.

Page 25 – Provides the figure $5,000 a month for what Craig is giving her to help him with his divorce from Melinda.

Page 26 – Morgan admits she was not working during this period. Craig was her only source of income. Then Craig forces her to sign a loan agreement for money she calls a 'gift' which was actually payment for helping with his divorce against her own mother, Melinda. 
Page 27 – Morgan states there was no amount on the loan agreement she signed. She agreed to pay 15% interest on money already received by her in the belief the payments could continue. She never received another payment after signing. 
Morgan reports Craig begins to demand she introduce him to women. This reveals a pattern in Craig's behavior.  Craig's goal in relationships is to persuade women to trust him and then destroy them financially when they accept his offers of help.  He will do the same with Amy (name changed) after making sure she was on the hook financially to him for starting a business.  
Page 28 – Morgan is asked if she feels obligated to pay Craig back. She responds, no she does not because he began pressuring her for sex at this time. 
Page 29 – Morgan states she realized Craig was using her to get back at Melinda. She outlines how Craig pressured her for introductions to men she knew who could be useful to him. She says she found him an attorney for the same reason. Morgan found attorney Jacqueline Misho for Craig in late 1997.
Craig bragged to his friends John Fund was a friend of his and they had dinner in New York. Morgan says this was a lie. In the early 90s Craig demanded I get John to publish an article he had written in the Wall Street Journal. I had read the article and knew it was not publishable, being more fantasy than reality and the subject was Russian – American relations. 

Craig also asserted Morgan was responsible for finding  a “20-something, blond, blue-eyed woman who was going to cater to his every whim.” This is still a recurring theme in Craig's sexual fantasies. What he does not intimate, which comes out later, is his wish to impregnate such a woman so she will have a daughter he can molest.

Pages 30 - 38

Morgan responds to questions about the phone conversation she had with Craig in October of 1999 made to prove to Melinda that Craig had lied and manipulated the stock options due to her during the divorce. 

Morgan Pillsbury – Franklin Transcript
Morgan admits she has told so many lies, “too many to name,” she has to use these methods so I will believe her. 
Page 31 – Morgan admits she lied to Melinda about having a heart problem but 'forgets' the circumstances when she did this. This took place when she was attempting to persuade Melinda to turn off her brother Arthur's life support in March of 1998. 
Morgan states Craig gave her $10,000 for a heart procedure. But Craig actually paid this money to ensure Arthur did not survive. This is something Morgan does not want on the record. 
Page 34 – Morgan states she felt creepy when Craig would talk to her about his sexual fantasies about her and her sisters. These are 'fantasies' I learned only after Craig left me he tried to live out.  It is likely if one of the girls had become the mother of a daughter herself, he would try to live out his incest fantasy with the next generation.  

Craig's son from his first marriage, Jonathan Scott Franklin, was convicted for hiring a hitman to kill his wife on  May 27, 2010, in Marysville, California.  He was to serve ten years to life. Scott had been one of the participants in the conference calls during the divorce as the group of them, which included Morgan, Jonathan Scott, Michael Emerling Cloud, perhaps Dan O'Dowd, and Craig discussed hiring a hitman to kill me.  

Craig's first action upon discovering his son, Scott, was not out of the way was to attempt to hire Jacqueline Misho to get him unsupervised visitation with his granddaughter, then eight years old.  Craig ignored the existence of his grandson, two years older.  

Psychopaths keep their eye of the goal.  Extraneous things, like the well being of those of no use to them, are dismissed as having no significance.

Pages 39 - 46  
Page 40 – 41 – Morgan explains she signed the loan agreement while in Jackie Misho's office in Santa Barbara. She states she signed because she felt intimidated. Morgan again states she has borderline personality disorder. 

What Morgan did not mention in this deposition, because I could not interject and my attorney forgot, was the last paper Morgan was asked to sign attesting, fraudulently, that Craig had never tried to have sex with her.  He was thinking ahead.  
Pages 46 - 50 
page 46 – 47 - I stopped writing Morgan checks because Craig had demanded I do so in September of 1997. He insisted we taper off supporting her. This shocked me because I had suggested we insist she get a job or finish college even while we were having financial problems, which I later discovered Craig had caused by not filing his tax returns. By this time money was no problem. I believe this was manipulation to make Morgan angry with me so he could use her for his own purposes. 
Page 49 – Form for the individual giving the deposition to sign certifying they have read and corrected the deposition. The document is unsigned.I think it goes without saying this proves no signed copy ever existed and makes GHS, Craig, John Fund, and his co-conspirators guilt of a crime.   


After the Deposition 

Around February 23, 2001 Morgan filed bankruptcy in Santa Barbara to clear the issue of the coerced promissory note from Craig and other debts she could not pay.  

On May 23, 2001 Craig filed a COMPLAINT to stop her from clearing the issue of the coerced promissory note.  In the motion he mentions more money he gave Morgan.  Since we know that Craig routinely hands over about $5,000 a month to women who he wants to be available to him sexually.  Morgan believed the money was payment for the assistance she was giving Craig to defraud Melinda and also kill her.  

Craig never gives away money without expecting to get something of value to him.  Destroying Melinda and securing all of the marital assets was of enormous value to him so it seems petty that he would also insist on getting sex.  But Craig is a psychopath and so this was a natural move for him.  

Morgan was part of the conspiracy which Morgan admits to in the response below.   This is an example of what happens when psychopaths collide instead of cooperating. 

On August 27, 2001 Morgan responded to a RESPONSE filed by Franklin to stop her from declaring bankruptcy on the promissory note she had signed under duress.

This document is well worth reading for the shock value.  The document names Dan O'Dowd, Michael (Emerling) Cloud as co-conspirators with Craig.  The document was produced by We The People, a legal service in Santa Barbara at the time, using statements from Morgan.  The document is signed by Morgan, the Debtor and Defendant.  

January 15, 2003 - Franklin Complaint Dismissal

Very brief.  Too  bad the judge and those reading the documents did not comment for posterity.  

October 6, 2003 - Letter to the IRS on Craig's fraud  

This short statement repeats some of the events Morgan admitted to in her Deposition but also quotes Craig telling her he needed the promissory note to commit fraud against the IRS by declaring this a bad debt.  The IRS failed to take action and I think a petition would be in order on these issues demanding the whole conspiracy be investigated by a joint committee from Congress and the Department of Justice and the Supreme Court.
