‘U’ alum admits to forging sarcastic note from U.S. Rep
Feb. 22, 1990 — Dean Baker, a former University graduate student and current professor of economics at Bucknell University, admitted yesterday to forging a letter that was supposedly signed by U.S. Rep. Carl Pursell.
The letter sarcastically implied that the United States should not support the El Salvador government. It was distributed three weeks ago to 10,000 of Pursell’s constituents and various media outlets.
Baker said he wrote the letter to highlight that almost all the money the United States gives to El Salvador goes to the military, which violently oppresses the population.
