This whole thing kinda fell off the radar and last I heard there never was an aknowledgement by him or an official statement of closure from USA Waterski. I noticed about every site that had this broadcasted has since pulled it down. Anybody have any info?

It's been on and off of Waterskimag.com two or three times.

It certainly would appear he's a cheat and his supposed "World Records" need to be reviewed.

I noticed that too on Waterskimag.com

I can't help but wonder if old Jim has attorneys working overtime keeping the media at bay? What do you think?

Does your 197 have a "special" hidden garage door opener inside?

I think the community is too small and "big people" have too much influence.

I'm guessing silence and no retributions.

And in this dream did you tell him that he did not deserve a MC and should stick with M'bu?

From what I've heard he does not own a Malibu, but a CC.
I guess it fits - Cheater Course.

I heard that he has taken up pairs figure skating and already has employed a French judge!

It probably helps when his wife is the District Attorney.

Even Schnitz's comments have been removed.

Hope USA Waterski does the right thing, but fear it will quietly be ignored.

I have heard (not seen) that there is a handheld video of the bouys actually moving back outward after a run.

Theres no question the guy is a piece of trash. I just am really suprised there hasn't been an official press release or something. The fact that this guy did that and completely got away with it is crap. It's even worse that all the media sources are scared of presenting the truth for fear of lawsuit.

Can you imagine the reception he will get if he ever shows up at a ski event again!

Just posted my "thoughts" on the subject over on Waterskimag.com

or

Whens it going to come to an end?
I hear from good sources that Jim has family with some good political and legal pull. It's odd that every site I have been to, the media sponsored articles related to this have all been pulled from those sites and vanished into thin air. I am disgusted with the irony in the sudden "quietness" this issue now receives from the media and the fact of JM's political/legal ties. I hope for America's sake such clout was not used to cover up the truth to the american people and the smal,l tight knit waterski community. JM, we know you are out there: Get a pair, suck up to what you did, take the heat for a little while and let the sport heal from your ways.

Link still works for the story, but it's on and off the front page.

I'd love to find a link for the video of the moving balls, anyone got it?

We had everyone up at our cabin, but better than having them for dinner, we had them in the MC.

She is the district attorney in Waukesha county in Milwaukee area. I guess her family has alot of those funny lookin S's with a line.....oh yeah these things $$$$$. I guess when you got those, there is no need for a good dental practice.

My bad, she is the Assistant District Attorney.
