I read about a fellow named “Glen Stark” at Chessdom (http://www.chessdom.com/virtual-candidate-in-ilyumzhinovs-ticket/) the other day.
“In the CV of the person named “Glen Stark”, as sent to several members of the chess community including members of FIDE and the Russian Chess Federation (see the images below), it is written that Glen Stark’s website is http://www.glstark.com and, among others, his CV (RUS) states that he is:
a) vice-president of the US government controlled executive board of Office of American Innovation https://www.darpa.mil,
b) a “member” of several private companies,
c) a member of the Board of the Lauder Institute at the University of Pennsylvania and
d) a member of the Writers Guild of America.”
The article gave an email for Mr. Stark so I sent him an email:
I write a quasi Chess blog, the Armchair Warrior. (https://xpertchesslessons.wordpress.com/)
Having read articles at Chessdom.com concerning your being on Kirsan Ilyumzhinov’s ticket I thought an email from you would help clear up the question(s) concerning your existence.
I checked the name “Glen Stark” at the USCF, finding that someone named Glen Stark joined the USCF recently. Would that happen to be you?

Sorry to say that I am not the Glen Stark you are looking for. Looks like you have a Glen V. Stark. I am C. Glen Stark.
All the best.
I greatly appreciate your response, sir. You need to be aware your email has been published at Virtual candidate in Ilyumzhinov’s ticket? (update 3) | Chessdom
We just returned home and I will post your reply, and notify you when published.
All the best to you, too!
