Leigha Fleming, Rena Fleming, National Coalition for Sexual Freedom Beware of NCSF Leader! Internet

*Consumer Comment: Update regarding Leigha / Rena Fleming

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

The public leader of the national advocacy organization for "alternative sexual expression", National Coalition for Sexual Freedom, speaks to the media and lobbies the government under the name "Leigha Fleming". 

Fleming's real name, however, is Rena Fleming (b. 4-17-70). She has an embarrassing personal legal and financial history in her home state of Oklahoma, and later Maryland, that she may be attempting to conceal. Fleming lives near Denver, Colorado now, and is an accountant. At NCSF functions and in the press, she vastly overstates her academic and professional credentials. Fleming has been treated for mental health conditions over the course of several years, but promotes herself as a healthy example of "the scene" she represents.

Fleming files lawsuits and testifies on behalf of NCSF, including in a federal challenge to the Communications and Decency Act, as "Leigha Fleming".  If NCSF endeavors to be a legitimate and transparent national organization, it needs to address this leadership problem.

Update regarding Leigha / Rena Fleming

AUTHOR: Anonymous - ()

On December 20th, 2013, NCSF issued the following announcement regarding Leigha Fleming:

 

The Board of NCSF regrets to announce that it appears Leigha Fleming breached her fiduciary duty and diverted at least $60,000 from the NCSF 501(c)4 membership organization for her own personal expenses since September 2011.
 
Leigha Fleming died on December 19, 2013. Leigha started volunteering for NCSF in 2000, and served as Chairman of the Board from 2008-2013.
 
The Board of NCSF is acting aggressively to recover as much of the missing funds as possible. A lawsuit is being filed in probate court, and the matter has been referred to law enforcement authorities.
 
The Board of NCSF has authorized an outside financial review of the books of the NCSF 501(c)4 membership organization, and Stephanie Sassy Lynn has been appointed the new Treasurer. The NCSF-Foundation 501(c)3 account, which received all of the donations for our "Office Fire Fundraiser." was not involved in this matter and continues to be overseen by the Foundation Treasurer, Jim Fleckenstein.
 
Going forward, the Board is working on ensuring our membership organization is in rigorous compliance with our financial policies and procedures. Several changes have been made to our financial policies to ensure that an opportunity for a repeat of this behavior is not possible, and this situation can never re-occur.
 
Our volunteer staff members freely give their time, heart and energy to fight discrimination and persecution, and we feel betrayed and devastated. NCSF operates on a small annual budget of $60-70,000 for both the NCSF membership organization and the NCSF-Foundation. We deeply regret the missed activist opportunities that could have been accomplished with the money that is missing.
 
Regardless of the damage done to NCSF, the work has not gone away. Sexual freedom is not yet a reality, and people still suffer personally and publicly from practicing BDSM, Swing, and Polyamorous lifestyles. NCSF remains committed to moving forward with all of our programs and efforts intact.
