There was documentation at the time of the mess in the form of letters
between Bing and the National President and/or the Board of Directors.  Where
those letters are and if they still exist is something I have no way of

Bing is a man who evokes strong emotions, pro and con.  I will only say that
neither side in the affair was wholy innocent of shenanigans and I have long
since washed my hands of it.  I was a Bing supporter and while I was not
personally burned in any way except my pride by this whole thing, having
experienced TS politics first hand has cured me of any further interest in it
and made me convinced that anyone who wants to be president of the US section
probably needs serious counseling.

The 1990 election nearly split the American section, nearly killed Dorothy
Abbenhouse and drove Bing to the brink of insanity.  It is an episode that
one remembers with a certain bitterness.
