A number of the the state FaceBook groups at Overpasses for America have either been taken over by their admins or taken “secret,” which means no one can see whether the groups still exist, or not. This has occurred due to the on-going scandal over the pilfering of donations for personal use by the OfA Founder, James Neighbors. A number of national organizers for the group have resigned in the last few days, due to the scandal. Some are setting up their own, competing activist groups.
Below is the list of states that have been “hijacked” or taken secret. Some object to the use of the word “hijack”. It just means that the current admins have demoted James Neighbors and his cohorts and he does not have control of the group any longer. It is not clear why the state groups have been made secret. No one can see or join a secret group unless they are added by one of the members.
Click on the states below to verify their status. If the page is not available, it has been taken secret (or deleted). If Jim Neighbors is not an admin, it has been “hijacked.”
All of the groups are “closed.” That is, non-members can’t see the discussions taking place.
