Is Ken Lewis’s Wife Involved In A Pyramid Scheme?

That’s what some local Charlotte TV station is alleging, claiming that Donna Lewis has been working as a sales rep for FHTM, “a multi-level marketer recently fined as a pyramid scheme.” The wife of KL doesn’t deny working for the company but takes offense to the notion that anything illegal is going down. “It is truly not a pyramid,” Lewis said. “It’s helping people in this horrible economy make a living.”

Lady Lewis also added that despite reports to the contrary, her husband, who does have the time, is not working for the company. “He is not involved at all,” said Donna Lewis, adding, “If he thought it was wrong he would not let me be involved.” Not saying she’s guilty– and in fact this strikes us as more of the sort of thing Kathy Fuld would get caught up in– but I will note the Lewis’s have been looking to raise a little cash for some time now, and couch-bound KL isn’t exactly making it rain (though to be fair, the 10 cent refunds on bottles of Strawberry Hill really do add up so who knows).

    What she’s not good enough for Amway, Kyani or Shaklee? I guess last weekend’s open-house at the Charlotte love nest was a bust.
