In the first chapter of this story we learned that three members of the United States Congress this year nominated a man named Yank Barry, also known as Gerald Falovich, also known as Gerald Barry, for the Nobel Peace Prize.
We also learned that those three members of the United States Congress nominated Yank Barry for the Nobel Peace Prize knowing that he had once been jailed for his involvement in a Mafia extortion scheme, and that he had once been convicted by a jury for having paid a bribe to the Texas director of state prisons, though a judge subsequently overturned his jury conviction.
In this chapter, we learn about the history of Yank Barry's charity, an outfit called the Global Village Champions Foundation, whose work was cited as the reason why Yank Barry had received nominations for The Nobel Peace Prize from no less than three members of the United States Congress. I provided the salient facts contained in this story to those three members of the United States Congress, but they have yet to revoke their nominations or any other way distance themselves from Yank Barry.
The story of Yank Barry's charity, the Global Village Champions Foundation, begins in the 1990s, when Yank Barry established a company called Global Village Market.
