A commenter identifying herself as Lisa Romanek, the wife of UFO-profiteer Stan Romanek, has posted a lengthy response to last week's cover story, "Close Encounter," about her husband's claims to have shot video footage of an alien peeping through his window.
I'm inclined to believe it's really Lisa Romanek. A "Lisa Romanek" has left similar responses on other posts and articles about her husband, and I've seen first-hand the gusto with which she'll jump into the family business.
Late into Stan's presentation at the Mysteries of the Universe Conference last July, an audience member asked if Stan would be willing to take a second polygraph test. (The results of the first: "significant reactions indicating deception.") Stan said he'd look forward to taking another, but Lisa shouted "No!" and dashed up from her seat to tell us all how her concern for her husband's health took precedence. I do not report this to make her look silly; at the time, it seemed charming. Finish the rest of this story here because I left all the juicy stuff out.
Below is a secondary story they'll be running as well.
