Ex-CEO: Mercer Tricked Bongino Out Of Parler Shares

Salon reports:

Pro-Trump pundit, conservative media tycoon and self-proclaimed Parler investor Dan Bongino was apparently tricked into being promised shares of Parler by investor and conservative mega-donor Rebekah Mercer, according to former Parler CEO John Matze.

This allegation is within a new lawsuit claiming that Bongino and Mercer used bullying and intimidation to take away Matze’s shares in Parler when they ousted him.

The nearly 20-page lawsuit from Matze, filed in the Eighth Judicial District Court of Nevada, says that Bongino “purports” to be a shareholder in Parler, before elaborating that the former CEO believes that “Mercer avoided executing any of the ownership documents to allow her to later dispute that Bongino has any such interest.”
