Transcript Some of you may remember that in last month's newsletter we printed a copy of the flyer that Bay Area NOW put out in referance to Sakowitz sponsoring a fashion show at the Republican for the Eagle Forum, the Phyllis Schafley far right group. I received a phone call from Bob Sakowitz and explained to him that we would be glad to print his reply since we are a very fair organization, unlike the Eagle Forum. True to our word, I am printing the reply that he mailed to me. Judge for yourself!!!!!!! SERVING THE GREAT SOUTHWEST Ms. Phyllis Tucker Page Two August 30, 1984 August 30, 1984 Ms. Phyllis Tucker 243 Empress Houston, Texas 77034 Dear Ms. Tucker: Thanks so much for receiving my call and understanding the tremendously unfair position in which I have found myself placed. Sakowitz did not host, nor sponsor, anything with the Eagle Forum, nor was there a dollar contributed by our organization to their organization. It is personally and professionally upsetting to me that a group of intelligent women who wish to have their rights heard would not afford me the same privilege. I have been subjected to "trial by press" or "association", which amounts to the worst sort of "McArthyism" I have ever personally been subjected to. I am also upset in view of our previous efforts on behalf of womens rights, even in a period when it was considerably less popular than it is today. I would have thought that someone would at least have taken the time to give me the benefit of the doubt and to call before cancelling charge accounts and sending inflammatory letters. It is a great disappointment for someone who is 100% in the fashion business and not endeavoring to make a political statement while trying to run a business. A number of months ago I was contacted by a group of Republican Eagles advising that one fashion show, and one only, would be given during the Republican Convention and requesting that we loan the clothes to the models, among whom would be Mrs. James Baker, Ambassador Gerard, Ed Meese's daughter and numerous congressmen and senator's wives, numbering 19 in total. In addition, it was between Sakowitz and Neiman Marcus as to which store would get the show, and if I would agree to commentate Sakowitz would be chosen. We have one store in Dallas and have been there since 1981, Neiman's have three and they have been there for a long time. The opportunity to expose our merchandise to 1,*00 convention women, at no cost to us, was obviously a good business decision. It was not until two weeks prior to the show that we heard that Mrs Schafly was involved, even then I was made to understand that the fashion show was to have nothing to do with her presentation. I would greatly appreciate your passing this on to your friends and associates so that at least I have had my right to be heard. Thank you for your consideration. Sincerely, Robert T. Sakowitz Chairman of the Board and President
