TSR Who's running the TSR3 social media accounts?

Ernie Gygax (before he and Stephen Dinehart accused the whole affair of being orchestrated by WotC and then deleted their Twitter accounts) indicated that Justin LaNasa was running the social media accounts for TSR3, Giantlands, and Dungeon Hobby Shop Museum.

After a full week of insults, barbed exchanges, and problematic statements from all three accounts, the following has been posted by somebody who identified themselves as "Michael", perhaps suggesting that Justin LaNasa is no longer with the company (which seems unlikely), leaving many on social media to question whether "Michael" exists. The new TSR3 was founded by LaNasa, Stephen Dinehart, and Ernie Gygax, and despite the acrinomious social media activity, the former two founders' names have largely escaped much of the criticism.

UPDATE -- the below tweets now appear to have been deleted.

Around the same time, the header above the available events at the Dungeon Hobby Shop Museum website was altered to read: "Most role playing games will be played in old school fashion so if you're easliy offended or Rude ! DO NOT PLAY !" (sic)


So who is TSR3 co-founder Justin LaNasa? He was an American politician who ran for office in 2014 and 2020, and who was involved in a minor scandal during the latter campaign.

I know @Rob Kuntz had mentioned he and some other RPG luminaries were going to put out a statement of some kind. Was that ever done, Rob? Or did changing circumstances delay or nix that?
No have not done that yet as it is not just up to me to make that move; but the plot has thickened behind the scenes and my call with LaNassa, subsequently, was canceled by me. Luke and I are discussing (Wednesday) what we have already made known here and elsewhere about a more concentrated announcement by ex-TSR people/associates; and some of those people are either not in the loop, are being courted by LaNassa, or are just coming up to speed. The attacks against Gary Con and one-time contributors to the DHS museum who have withdrawn their artifacts/monies are ongoing. I am not at liberty to divulge anything about Gary Con's responses to this, and if Luke feels that is necessary you'll find that out from him. I am at liberty to divulge that the Gygax Estate (Gail Gygax) has withdrawn their support for DHS; and that the Lake Geneva Museum's board of directors, which is establishing a historical display on Gary and TSR, were also informed of the fractures and the current situation and they will be having nothing to do with nuTSR.

I'll know more Wednesday.
