He ran for Congress as a Republican in 2000
He was a Pennsylvania delegate to the GOP Convention in New York
"I don't like smoking bans. I'm a guy who believes in freedom," said Charlie Gerow, a cigar-smoker and delegate from Harrisburg, Pa. "Doesn't
every civilized person enjoy cognac with a good cigar after dinner? I miss that here."
"I think the president's plan is exactly what the country needs right now," 19th Congressional District delegate Charlie Gerow said. "The
president understands the importance of allowing people to keep their hard-earned money instead of sending it to Washington, D.C."
He's a member of Pennsylvania's Reagan Legacy Project State Advisory Committee
He's the president of the Penn Center, a "conservative think tank"
"The governor tried to put the Republican legislature between the dog and fire hydrant," said Charles R. Gerow, president of the Penn Center, a
conservative think tank in Harrisburg. "But the Republicans, filled with jolt of testosterone, uncharacteristically did the right and smart thing."
Named a Republican "party activist"; "political heavyweight"
"I've always been with Arlen in past, but I'm with Toomey this time because I think he is a conservative who can win -- that's what I look for,"
said Charlie Gerow, a party activist and one of the few political heavyweights in the state who backs Mr. Toomey.
He's doesn't just own the production company, he's the publicist for "Stolen Honor":
The controversy over the anti-John Kerry ads aired by the swift boat vets has settled to a low boil, but the issues could take on new life and a new
direction on September 9 with the premiere in Washington of a for-profit documentary called Stolen Honor. "I believe this is going to be the
documentary of 2004," says Charlie Gerow, publicist for the film. "Forget about Michael Moore."
He's a Bush Appointee
The President intends to appoint Charles R. Gerow, of Pennsylvania, to be a Member of the Benjamin Franklin Tercentenary Commission. (Recommendation
submitted by the Governor of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.)
[And RWB Front Group's] Documentary maker Sherwood also has ties [as reported in ATSNN]
As the Kerry campaign will quickly point out, Sherwood has "ties" to the Bush administration, having served in media services for former Gov. (and
now Homeland Security Secretary) Tom Ridge in Pennsylvania. He is executive vice president of WVC3, a Virginia company involved in security and
Yet both men denied any association to Bush-Cheney as recently as
"There has been absolutely no discussion, association, communication or coordination at all with the Bush campaign," said Charlie Gerow, a spokesman
for Sherwood's production company. Said Sherwood: "I am a registered independent. This is not political, it's personal."
Also according to Sherwood the registerd "Indepependent" previously "served as Special Media Advisor to the Secretary of the Navy during the
Reagan Administration." This is almost certainly a reference to James Webb, who held the position between 1987 and 1988. Webb is now on the Advisory
Board of WVC3. These days, Webb's views on Iraq differ from Sherwood's, as Webb has been a strong critic of the decision to go to war.
Though Sherwood formerly worked for the extremely conservative Washington Times (sourced frequently above, and now owned by followers of Rev. Moon)
his most previously controversial public work prior to "Stolen Honor" remains the friendly assessment of noted Right Wing activist Reverend Sun
Myung Moon in Inquisition: The Persecution and Prosecution of the Reverend Sun Myung Moon
, where Sherwood concluded "independently" that Moon
and his followers "were and continued to be the victims of the worst kind of religious prejudice and racial bigotry this country has witnessed in
over a century." Powerful stuff.
Will "Stolen Honor" be as impartial and revealing?
Of course former Bush-Cheney Campaign advisor and featured face of SBVT 527 ads, Ken
is billed as the top feature of "Stolen Honor" being shown on
Sinclair, you may recall is the company Republican Senator McCain called "unpatriotic" earlier this year for it's pre-empting of Nightline's
tribute to Fallen Heros. It's also known for it's $2.3 million in contributions to Republicans between 96 and 04, including
97% of all it's contributions
just this year
It's forthcoming "unpartisan" additional contribution of over 5,000 commercial free prime time minutes (90 minutes across 62 stations) to the
continued anti-Kerry efforts of these "independents," federal contractors and promised Bush appointees continues to draw scrutiny.
