You may have heard about the Silk Road scandal in Time magazine, Wired magazine, or any of a hundred other places.
Curtis Green took a job working for a company called Silk Road, where (unknown to Curtis) his boss, nicknamed “Dread Pirate Roberts,” was trafficking drugs over the internet.
When the FBI and the DEA got wind of it, they set Curtis up in a sting operation, staging a drug bust using planted evidence.
When Curtis’s boss found out about it, he hired a hit man to cover his trail, but the FBI found out about it and staged Curtis’s assassination. The Dread Pirate Roberts got two life sentences for his crimes, but the story wasn’t over.
The FBI and DEA agents that were investigating the crimes decided to steal millions from Silk Road. Now they’re also in prison.
Curtis wants to tell his story and clear his name. Due to legal issues, he hasn’t been able to talk or write about what happened–until now. As you can imagine, the legal bills were staggering. So I’ve agreed to help him start a fundraiser so that he can pay for some basic help on the writing and editing of his amazing autobiography. We’ll be kicking the fundraiser off next week, offering exciting gifts and prizes, but we need your help.
