ALL THAT VW MONEY PAID TO THE DESERT RACING COMMUNITY TO PUSH THE MULTI-TRILLION DOLLAR SCAM, "CLEAN DIESEL", AT RISK?

“The FTC's lawsuit cited the slew of methods that Volkswagen used to tout its ‘Clean Diesel’ campaign, including a Super Bowl advertisement, social media efforts, collaborations with environmental nonprofits such as The Nature Conservancy, an endorsement by Gwyneth Paltrow at her Hollywood premiere of Iron Man III, and a catchy ad slogan, ‘Diesel - It's No Longer A Dirty Word".

We'll see all the ways VW gave vehicles, paid sponsorships and otherwise bought the 'industry' of desert racing, to push "Clean Diesel".

Lets start the list of the "Clean Diesel"
PUSHERS:


*Sal Fish was reportedly paid hundreds of thousands of dollars and took a Touareg2 from Volkswagen.
*Arcierro Racing was reportedly paid hundreds of thousands of dollars and took Volkswagen goods and services. 
*Marty Fiolka was reportedly paid $75,000 for putting this fail event together;

What Happened to ALL THAT MONEY that was promised for the racers/competitors? Sal Fish's Pockets!
