Description

Elizabeth Broderick ran seminars in Lancaster, California, a high desert suburb of Los Angeles. At the packed seminars, people would pay from $125-$200 for admission to hear anti-government philosophies and learn about "sovereignty." Included in the seminar package attendee's received what was called a "Comptrollers Warrant", what it was in reality was a blank check. They were instructed that they could fill out the checks for any amount and could pay off any debt. The could also buy additional checks separately. Broderick claimed it was all legal and backed-up by millions of dollars in liens she had against an illegal U.S. government. (March 4 - April 25, 1996)
