Judy Dosse is an American Mensan who has been politically controversial within Mensa. In the early 1990s, she was elected as a Regional Vice Chairman, which made her a member of the American Mensa Committee. There, she got into some political clashes, largely centering on her wish to obtain information concerning the national office that was considered confidential and not made available even to all AMC members. At one point, a motion to censure her was considered by the AMC. After leaving office, she was brought up on a variety of charges by the National Hearings Committee. Ultimately, rather than defend herself after a grueling day of having charges presented to her, she gave in and signed a settlement agreement where she "pled guilty" to some of the charges and agreed to be permanently barred from holding national Mensa office. She remains the only American Mensan who is permanently not a "member in good standing" as a result of this sanction. She continues to be active in Mensa, and is a regular participant on some of the unofficial Internet forums.
