A Southern Illinois woman named Dawn N. Voss is going to have to wait at least another two months for satisfaction in her lawsuit against the Iron Order Motorcycle Club. The Iron Order, whose members have been involved in numerous, widely publicized, violent confrontations including at least one fatal shooting over the last year describes it self as a “law abiding motorcycle club.”
Voss filed suit against the club’s “Gateway Chapter,” Iron Order patch holder Randy “Linus” Frantz and Christine Frantz on November 26, 2014. John C. “Shark” Whitfield, who serves as “Director of the Division of Legal Affairs” for the three piece patch club as well as Nortonville, Kentucky City Attorney responded to the suit on January 28. The next hearing in the case will be May 27.
Voss characterizes the Iron Order as “a business that has numerous members that congregate and gather together for periodic social gatherings in which said numerous members consume a large amount of alcohol, act hostile, and (are) belligerent with each other.”
Sher alleges that on November 27, 2012 she was at the clubhouse at 415 Morrison Avenue in Collinsville, Illinois, as a patron and business invitee of Frantz. He operates a wood working business and among his products was a wooden paddle. He gave the paddle to another, unnamed club member who beat Voss with it and that action caused her to become sick, sore, lame and disordered and to suffer extensive injuries to her wrist, arms, and body. She alleges she lost income and her treatment was expensive.
Subsequently, on January 1, 2014, Voss was assaulted by Christine Frantz , who she identifies as a member of the Iron Order, and Voss suffered more injuries. Voss is seeking damages greater than $150,000. The club can certainly afford that. Multiple club members have stated that a club party last year featuring the fossil rock band Three Dog Night cost more than $300,000.
Voss is represented by an Edwardsville, Illinois attorney named Robert Bas.
Performative Displays Of Machismo
The Iron Order encourages highly performative displays of machismo by its members and publically espouses the diminishment of women.
Club founder and longtime club president Ray “Izod” Lubesky, a former fast food executive with Cinnabon, Ponderosa Steakhouses and Papa John’s Pizza who now runs a painting company franchise in Palm Harbor, Florida, has publically stated: “The club was founded as a law abiding, democratically led club. The truth of the matter was somewhat different. We were law abiding (barring the speeding, drinking, whores, and other stupid shit we did while partying) but we were not being democratically led.”
Lubesky committed to writing numerous statements that might shed light on the club atmosphere that led to Voss’ beating.
“We also met their clubhouse whore. The Kentucky chapter was pretty jealous of Indiana because they had their own clubhouse whore and we didn’t. We would soon have our own crew of ladies and our women would start a support club of their own, the Iron Order Maidens, but at this time we didn’t have any women and here Indiana had their own clubhouse whore. She stayed at their clubhouse that had no shower. To give her a shower they took her out back and used a garden hose. Now that’s class.”
“Women can be the most dangerous elements when it comes to MC conflicts. They will go out of their way to create problems just to see fights happen. Somehow they get excitement or orgasms over the blood being spilled for them. I warn the brothers all the time to avoid whores like this. They are nothing but 5 miles of bad road.”
“Doc and I had a great trip together. We visited all our chapters and partied every day. Doc picked up this floozy from the internet. She was not a bad traveling bitch. We didn’t have to wait up on her, she packed the bike and lugged her share of the work. She didn’t complain when we rode through the desert at 110 degrees or over the Rockies at 30 degrees with no winter gear or when we got hammered by a hail and rain storm with a tornado in Oklahoma. By the second week Doc decided he had enough of her. We were cruising into Nashville on our return. Doc told me he had to stop for gas. We just filled up before riding into Nashville like we always do so I didn’t understand why he needed gas. You never want to ride into a big city on an empty tank. It’s better to stop outside the city and not have to pull off some inner city exit in a bad part of town. He tells me to pull off on this specific exit to a specific gas station. We pull off and I go into the convenience store to walk the lizard and get a drink. The whore comes in and gives me a hug crying like a baby. She tells me she is glad to have known me and thanked me for the great trip. I get outside and Doc has all her shit lying on the black top. He tells me we’re leaving her there and going on. I say OK and off we go leaving her at the convenience store. The next day Doc discovered the bitch stole his camera and some other items.”
“I have no idea how many times I have written or talked about this subject but it seems some of our brothers or our new brothers just don’t pay attention. The biker world is full of club groupies, floozies and whores. A full patch can get laid faster than any biker and that is a fact. It may not be with a Shania Twain look alike but it will have tits and pussy. Like my grandfather used to say, ‘You show me tits and a pussy and I’ll show you trouble.’ I know of several brothers who will only mess with girls who are 250 pounds or bigger and there is a never ending inventory or those floating around. Some just like big asses and big tits. Whatever it is you like you can get it out there. These women are on ‘Biker or Not’ and many other E-Z Date web sites. They are always hanging out in biker bars or attending bike nights, just waiting for the next dick they can get hold of. There are a whole lot of problems that can arise from these whores and I ain’t just talking about the clap or drip dick.”
“These groupies are well versed in the biker life. They may tell you they know all the clubbers and can smooth any problems that could come up because of a patch. When a whore says stuff like that you can bet she’s fucked patch holders from more than one club and may still have contacts with other clubs. These women will carry rumors and all the intel they can gather to both sides of the fence. They don’t do it consciously; they just do it for the attention and excitement. They love to tell their friends how they are connected and what they know. Some of them love to be in the middle of the shit when it hits the fan because they know full well women are out of harm’s way. Some of these women have actually caused wars between clubs. They bring nothing but 10 miles of bad road so you need to have your head on straight when dealing with these floozies.”
