The mystery surrounding Mark Parnes of Wilson Sonsini and spouse Diane Ford-Parnes is growing as new and promising sources of information reveal a quiet persistence on the part of Diane to hide her (Jewish?) identity by using the name Diane Ford and/or Diane Ford Parnes rather than Diane Shelton or the name she has been known — Diane Shelton Parnes

As was reported earlier, Larry Sonsini, the chairman of Palo Alto-based Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, was asked to investigate allegations of improprieties involving John Roos — Wilson Sonsini’s former CEO who now serves as the US Ambassador to Japan. He was also asked to investigate allegations dealing with Wilson Sonsini’s assistant general counsel, Mark Parnes.
The request comes amidst revelations that in 2007-2008, OBAMA FOR AMERICA operatives John Roos and Mark Parnes of Wilson Sonsini participated in what appears to be a sophisticated financial scheme to misuse the California Bar Foundation and non-profit entity CaliforniaALL as a vehicle to embezzle and launder funds originated from major utility companies and the California Bar Foundation.
Although other potential explanations certainly exist, as matters presently stand, it appears that these operatives organized to push for the election of Barack Obama on behalf of those seeking to promote green energy. In addition to John Roos and Mark Parnes, also viewed as potential wrongdoers are Jeffrey Bleich, Ron Olson, Brad Phillips (of Munger Tolles & Olson — on behalf of Southern California Edison), James Brosnahan, Tony West, Chris Young, Annette Carnegie (of Morrison & Foerster — on behalf of PG & E), Steven Churchwell (of DLA Piper — on behalf of Sempra Energy), and Tony West’s sister-in-law — Kamala Harris.
