Update on Our Investigation of USA Swimming’s Alex Pussieldi Cover-Up

Published February 25th, 2014, Uncategorized
  • Sources at USA Swimming confirm that Nancy Fisher, a private investigator who formerly was a Federal Bureau of Investigation agent, is making inquiries as part of a re-opened file on Alex Pussieldi in connection with the 2004 complaint against him, which was dismissed at the time.
  • Laura Voet, the manager of the Fort Lauderdale Aquatic Complex, has not responded to our emails and faxes. She was assistant manager in 2004. We have  submitted to the complex a Florida public records request for files pertaining to the incident.
  • We have contacted Fort Lauderdale’s mayor, vice mayor, city commissioners, and city attorney for comment on the 2007 Broward New Times report that the commission was given a packet of information about allegations of sexual misconduct at the Fort Lauderdale Swim Team; though Pussieldi is not named in the report, it is clear that the portions pertaining to Peeping Tom videotapes of young swimmers refer to Pussieldi. We also filed a public records request for the packet. Mayor Jack Seiler emailed, “I do not know this individual and I have no knowledge of this subject matter.  In fact, I was not the Mayor in 2007.  I am also forwarding your email to our City Attorney for her review and response, if appropriate.”
  • The manager of the Fort Lauderdale Aquatic Complex in 2004 was Stu Marvin. He is now the swim coach at Bloomsburg University in Pennsylvania. Marvin has not responded to our email and phone messages. We have asked Bloomsburg’s athletic director, Mike McFarland, for help.
