LANA LOKTEFF: So Patrick you’ve been making the news this year, been pretty busy with Identity Evropa and all.

PATRICK CASEY: It’s been a wild year, in a good way mostly but particularly in the last four months or so. There’s been quite a bit of media attention that has resulted from things that I personally and Identity Evropa have done. I think Lana was referring to both the Today Show interview and more recently the White House visit both of which were very amusing for a number of reasons but ultimately played out to our advantage.
