Ohlsen's Former Wife Testified that He Was Behind "Voters for Truth", Used Multiple Aliases

The FEC investigators noted that Ohlsen often used the alias "Mike Scott." But that is only one of Ohlsen's aliases according to his wife's testimony.

Attorney: Does Mr. Ohlsen go by several different names?
Michelle Ohlsen: Yes.
What names does he go by?
I've seen Milton Ohlsen, Milton Ohlsen III, Mike Ohlsen, Mike Scott, and he said in his deposition that [the name] he's assuming [at] the hotel was either Nathan Alexander, or Alexander Nathan, or Michael Alexander. He wasn't sure.
Ohlsen is currently in jail awaiting sentencing for mortgage fraud and weapons possession (as a convicted felon for drug trafficking, he's not supposed to own a firearm).

Sentencing was to be last week but has now been rescheduled to September 23 -- leaving many people to speculate that Ohlsen is spilling his guts to reduce his prison term. But that's not true according to his attorney, Paul D'Agrosa.

That said, I'm told that Ohlsen may be involved in an even bigger case than the Smith/Brown scandal -- details of which could emerge soon.
