Dean Zimmermann: Was it "Want" or "Need"?

As Mick Jagger would tell you, there's a world of difference between the words "need" and "want". Here are two accounts of an incident mentioned in the warrant used by the FBI when they raided Dean Zimmermann's house:

David Tilsen

"This June 6th meeting was at the Black Forest Inn, it was a fundraising party for Dean on the occasion of his 63rd birthday.  Dean was speaking to a group of over 100 supporters from a makeshift stage, and someone unknown raised his/her hand and asked “Dean what do you need?”  Dean said “money money money”.  As we can see, the affidavit is true, but not actually the truth."


Wizard Marks

"I interviewed Zimmermann and his wife today. Zimmermann and Jenny Heiser (Mrs. Zimmermann) both agree that Dean Zimmermann could have met Carlson on June 6th, as the affidavit claims, but that there were over 100 people in the room with Zimmermann and Carlson at the time because it was Zimmermann's birthday party. The Zimmermann's also agree that
Zimmermann said, "money, money, money". They further claim that his saying so was in answer to the shouted question from one attendee, "What do you want for your birthday, Dean?"


Gee, and I thought a Green's birthday wish would be for something like world peace, or an end to pollution or an end to genetic engineering, or an end to the destruction of the rain forests, or.....
