THE CHELSEY HENRY FIASCO
In her public appearances and campaign messaging, Lawson never fails to tout her business experience as one of her main strengths. Though Lawson certainly has marketing talent, recent evidence reveals her managerial abilities to be highly questionable and largely a myth. In this area she has, again, misled the voters of the 2nd Congressional district. On-line purse and luggage retailer Chelsey Henry, Inc was launched by two co-principals, Chelsey Owen and Henry Lin, in 2002. Lawson became a Director and Chairman a few years after this, continuing in this role until 2010. Thus Lawson became a director sometime after the enactment of the Sarbanes-Oxley law, which added new responsibilities for corporate board members. One of the co-founders (Owen) also claimed a role in developing Lawson’s start-up, InPart (in the 1990s), and may be connected with one of Pillai’s Indian businesses (Brzee Enterprises.) (6B)
From 2002 through 2010 Chelsey Owen was a registered owner, President and Director, Lin was an owner, and from around 2004 through 2010 Stacey Lawson was Chairman or Director. These three were the only responsible corporate owners and officers mentioned in a November 2007 Securities and Exchange commission filing at the time that Chelsey Henry received over $1 Million from venture capital investors, indicating they comprised, in fact, the responsible management team.(6B)
According to records from the King county, WA recorders office, nine separate federal tax liens involving 15 separate charges, totaling over $350,000 were filed against Chelsey Henry, Inc. between October 2008 and March 2010 These charges were for quarterly reporting periods from Oct-Dec. 2006 through September 30, 2009. There are no records indicating this tax was ever paid or the liens specifically released. In addition, the state of
filed tax warrants for non-payment of taxes and unemployment insurance on three separate occasions totaling $6,284. The last state of Washington non-payment filing was in June 2010. [King County Superior Court Case # 10-2-22172-7] (6B) Washington
