PER WICKSTROM'S REPUTATION MANAGEMENT 'POTEMKIN VILLAGE' CONSTRUCTED IN REAL TIME! EXCLUSIVE SPINMEISTER EMAILS!

What exactly are Potemkin villages? The name is from a legend about Russian Prince Potemkin. The prince wanted to convince the empress that the Crimea was a vital, thriving area. 

So he built Potemkin villages, elaborate facades in the shape of villages and towns that appeared real from a distance. But they were fake and insubstantial.  

And there's a whole universe of positive-press "Potemkin" reputations management —meaningless websites designed to look real or authoritative.

And Per Wickstrom, awash in a sea of real money, uses one of the most facile practitioners of that mysterious art of reputation fakery--Karima Grohsman.

Grohsman's husband, Bernie, is a self-described "addiction marketing pioneer" who recently sold Treatment-Centers.net for a reported $2M to "an entrepreneurial family with interests in helping people gain access to treatment and recovery resources". 

Grohsman is credited on that site as its "author, designer and site administrator", with wife Karima listed as its "editor/moderator". 

But even krafty Karima makes mistakes.

WATCH IT WORK IN "REAL TIME"

Your girl Miss Fortune posted a story yesterday about Best Drug Rehabilitation's former Director of Security, Brian Willis Harper (don't the worst excuses for humanity always go by three names?):

ARMED AND DANGEROUS: CONVICTED FELON/THUG BRIAN WILLIS HARPER FORMER BEST DRUG REHABILITATION SECURITY DIRECTOR

And just to make sure Mr. Wickstrom knew that your girl Miss Fortune knew the truth about Harper's ghastly criminal record, Per Wickstrom received a personal email from Miss Fortune.

But what Per Wickstrom didn't know was that a select group were  "blind carbon copied" and also received the message. 

And one of those in the group was Karima Grohsman.

Clearly assuming she was responding directly to Per Wickstrom, Grohsman immediately started spinning, donned her best client-ego-stroke cap and shot this message off:

Wow, so poor Per Wickstrom was "criticized for trying to do the right thing"?

Hiring a convicted felon to head security at Best Drug Rehabilitation is "the right thing"? Putting a hard case like Brian Willis Harper in charge of a facility populated with vulnerable people is like putting the fox in charge of guarding a hen house. 

Might as well have a eunuch guarding a whorehouse!

Not exactly the "noble cause" Grohsman refers to, eh?

And don't you love the line "this chick is out to get you"? 

Don't flatter yourself, Per! Why would Miss Fortune waste any time when George Clooney is single again.

Grohsman, responding to Wickstrom from the Rainbow PUSH Conference in Chicago, throws out this pitch--


Wonder how the NAACP's Benjamin Jealous and the awesomely brainiac economist Dr. Julianne Malveaux respond when they're asked to shill for a Scientology scam artist/addiction marketing pimp/craven status seeker.

Miss Fortune bets they'll "just say no".
