Now let’s skip forward to a deposition on April 22, 1981 of Tony Alamo aka Bernie Lazar Hoffman.
In this deposition Tony claims he has two sons by a former wife. Just shows that Tony Alamo had no problem lying under oath in his 1969 interrogatory. Tony was a liar even then, when he was claiming to be a zealous young Christian.
Mr Garner: Mr Alamo, were you ever a defendant in a paternity suit?
Tony answers: Yes.
A. Oh, about seventeen years ago.
A. Los Angeles
Q. Were you directed……..
Then Roy Gean steps in and trys to stop the questioning about Tony’s personal life.
Mr Garner continues…..
Q. Were you ordered and directed to make monthly support payments, Mr Alamo?
Mr Gean: That’s more than ten years ago and we’re not going to answer that.
Q. Are you making monthly support payments now?
Q. And have you been making them continuously for the last ten years?
Q. Are they made by check out of the Foundation funds?
Q. The Foundation pays them, in other words?
A. The Foundation pays several paternity suits for any—on cases.
Mr Gean: You’re talking about divorce and so on?
Mr Garner: But I’m talking about—
Mr Gean: You’re just talking about him, and he answered that, yes.
A.Mine too, that’s right.
Mr Garner: It pays—has been paying $50 a month?
Q. Ever since the Foundation’s been formed.
A. Before the Foundation—
Q. Yes, but since the Foundation—when the Foundation came into being, it took up the payments and started paying it?
A. That’s right.
Q. All right, sir. And where was that sent?
(skipping down to more information)
Q. When will your child, putative child, reach majority?
A. It’s not my child, but I’m paying the payments on it.
Q. I’m saying putative child, that’s the reason I said that.
Q.. Reach majority?
A.. I believe within a half a year to a year.
Q. In other words, you anticipate the payments will stop within a year?
Q. All right.
A. It might have already stopped.
Q. Do you have any children by any other wife or lady?
A. Well, I’ve been accused, but I have two children and I don’t know where their whereabouts are.
Q. The $50.50 you’re paying is for a son?
A. It’s for a—
Q. A boy?
A. A boy.
Q. All right, sir. Do you have a child, a putative child, other than that boy?
Mr Gean: Explain to him what you mean by putative.
Mr Garner continues: That means it’s alleged, somebody accused you of being the father.
Mr Gean: Now, Charlie, you know we’re objecting to this, as far as the admissibility at the trial—
Mr Garner: I understand.
Tony Alamo answers: Well, I had two children by a former wife, but I don’t know where the two boys are. They are my boys.
Q. But you’re not in contact with them or the wife?
A. No, don’t know where they are.
Q. When was the last contact you had with them?
A. I would say around thirty years ago.
Logic + Arithmetic = A Lie: 1981 minus 30 years would be the year 1951. That would mean that the last time Alamo saw his children was in 1951. In the 1969 interrogatory, Tony Alamo stated that he didn’t have any children to his knowledge (last Q&A in the 1969 interrogatory excerpt on this page).
