CRA Update: Chaos is King, Lawyers Keep Coming, Look Out Kirk Uhler

Park Deraingment Syndrome has beset the CRA. They just can’t move on.

Witness the latest Legal threat letter from Craig Alexander. Mr. Alexander is so consumed by rage that he can not help himself. The CRA got everything George and I had records-wise.

The amazing thing is that Pat Garcia – the paranoid treasurer said he had copied everything out of the former Hightail Account (at least he told another CRA officer that) and of course the CRA Black Widow, Alice Khosravy has copies of everything (If she doesn’t, she is either lying or has broken her long established neurosis). I have pointed that out to the CRA’s brain trust a few times.

Which leads me to the dramatic irony of the CRA’s Interim President, Baghdad Tom Hudson telling the world that the “CRA is OK”, the “CRA is growing”, “There is nothing wrong with CRA”…

… while he is trying to convince a unit he tried to stop the formation of in the first place from leaving CRA.

… while he had no clue that ousted CRA President John Briscoe is poised to head the newly forming CIR.

… while he is attempting to fill the vacancy left by the resignation of Noel Parrish.

Wait? Noel Parrish – the wife of OC Treasurer Claude Parish quit CRA? Yup. The toxicity level is astounding and the people that used to lend credibility to the organization by their mere presence are leaving (or are getting expelled for life).

Why did Tom Hudson try to hide her resignation if the CRA is doing well? Why hasn’t Tom Hudson been able to find a replacement for Her if the CRA is doing well?

Perhaps it is the same reason why he had to scrape the sewer to appoint a bunch of useless retreads on to the CRA Board… no one credible wants to be a part of it.

Witness CRA weed-eater Tim Thiesen telling Greg Powers that “Until Jesus Comes Back” in response to a question related to the cover up of fraud in 3 CRA units. They have to make unit officers permanent both for control purposes and because most CRA units are insular and have no effective leadership.

Which brings me to Tom Hudson – in his own words:

Dear George,
Have you completed the final Form 460 for the PCRA PAC?
Did you file the closing Form 410 after closing down the PAC’s bank account?
If so, please send me scanned copies of those forms.
I am writing on behalf of the Placer County Republican Assembly Board of Directors.  You shut down the PAC’s bank account while you were serving as its Treasurer.  With the closing of that account, the PAC ceased to exist.  As a matter of law, you remain the PAC Treasurer for purposes of mandatory campaign finance disclosure until a new Treasurer has been selected.  No new Treasurer has been selected and there are no plans to select anyone for that job because you closed down the PAC.
Who was serving on the PAC Board of Directors when the account was closed and the funds were disbursed?  Who voted to take these actions?
Please understand that I am sending you this note to keep YOU out of trouble.  I would hope that you would do the same for me if our positions were reversed.  I am willing to help you get these mandatory filings completed, if I can.  However, if you ignore this note, you need to know that the current Board of Directors will need to contact the Fair Political Practices Commission about this situation in an attempt to avoid fines and criminal penalties for noncompliance.
Best regards (on behalf of the PCRA Board)
Allow me to remind everyone that the PCRA does not have a board. It is contrived… but, the CRA’s Board of Directors will recognize whomever Tom Hudson asks them to… until Mr. Hudson outlives his usefulness and gets his turn at the purge table.
Mr. Hudson sent George this email while at the same time another PCRA PAC exists. Since Hudson is a master of having multiple entities set up at the same time in order to pay bills and deal with the IRS… This Shadow PCRA PAC has an FPPC ID number that starts with 122 – suggesting an origin 10 years ago. Why is the contact info the same as a well-known Right-Leaning non-profit lawyer group?
What will Hudson use this shadow PAC for? It is a not-so-well-kept secret that Hudson despises Kirk Uhler. There are elements on the Placer GOP Cent Com that want to challenge Uhler to teach him a lesson (while letting Commie-Lib Hippie, Jennifer Montgomery get off scott-free) because of Measure B.
Has all of Tom Hudson’s near Psychotic behavior been about setting up a narrative against Kirk Uhler? I am sure the voters will cut the fat and re-elect Uhler next year… but there are windmills to charge don’t you know…
… which is where the CRA is. They are consumed with Park Deraingement Syndrome. Since they have to be right at all costs, they will continue to act like the prophets of Baal, who went to insane extremes (including bleeding to death) in order to win an argument with the Prophet Elijah.
They aren’t just Right, they are Really Right… down the crazy train.

CRA Update: They Really Wrote This

I kept telling myself that I would not write about the CRA except in rare cases where their stupidity merited a response. Apparently, when nerds think they are right, almost everything they do is stupid.

The CRA’s 900 club is in to some serious damage control in between boxes of donuts. Makes you want to Join CRA, huh?

Witness CRA Interim President Tom Hudson’s response to a confused CRA unit. (You can pretty much tell what the unit asked by the response)

I am shocked to hear that you have not received any updates from the California Republican Assembly.  I have copied several local CRA officers on this e-mail to make sure that we can keep you and your unit in the loop.

Greg Marks is the new Senate District Director for District 4 and he was approved by the CRA Board of Directors.  His telephone number is (xxx).  (We do not presently have a Deputy Senate District Director in that district, due to a recent resignation, so I hope you will let me know if you have a good candidate in mind.  Perhaps someone from your unit would be willing to serve?)

Bill Cardoza is the closest Vice President.  His telephone number is (xxx).

Carl Brickey is the new CRA Membership Secretary.  His telephone number is (xxx).  I don’t want to speak for him, but I assume that he will be contacting you about membership information.

Ed Rowen is the Senate District Director for District 1 and the President of the Placer County Republican Assembly.  He does not represent your area, but I have copied him on this e-mail because he lives nearby in Lincoln and he might (possibly) be able to attend your meeting.  Ed’s telephone number is (xxx)

I am sorry that your former Senate District Director did not notify you when he suddenly resigned.  I am not very happy with him right now, for a wide variety of reasons, but there is probably no need to digress into that.  I certainly share your frustration with him!

Note that three “New” CRA officers – all of whom voted to expel us have done nothing for the CRA since taking their posts. IT Makes perfect sense as they all believe that people will flock to the CRA now that we are gone.

Also of near hysterical note is the first sentence in Mr. Hudson’s email. Apparently, it is dawning him that he is the interim president of a train wreck.

Of Final note is the new by-law that Mr. Hudson found about resigning board members. According to Hudson, it is the resigning board member’s fault – not the new board member (who ironically does not live in SD04 and hails from a fake unit). The things one must do to be the President of a fraud-based grassroots coalition.

Now off to the next member of the CRA’s 900-club, the former Bathroom Boy turned fraud protection agent. (aka membership secretary)

CRA has no records for your unit.  Former Membership Secretary George Park maliciously deleted all our membership and unit records from our online storage service and did it in a manner to prevent data recovery.  Mr. Park continues to ignore our demands to turnover the digital files he downloaded before the deletion.  Although Mr. Park mailed me a small number of paper records, none are from Sutter-Yuba RA.  President Tom Hudson sent an email three weeks ago updating the membership regarding the recent changes on the CRA Board of Directors using our email list, but we have found that some members and units, especially units such as yours that were recently chartered, are missing from the list.  I’ve been working with several board members to rebuild our contact list for unit presidents and secretaries and will email these unit leaders next week to provide my contact information, to clarify the procedures for dues and membership submissions, and to inform them of the status of our statewide membership and unit records.

Amazing things happen to someone when they think they are right.

It is all George’s fault. (Now we know how Bush feels) – George was just re-elected 82-55 in March, 10 weeks before being banned for life by the CRA’s board and now this.

The CRA’s By-Laws that they care about only when it suits them were complied with and they have no further recourse. The loss of control must be extremely difficult and may even require real work.

Based on anecdotal evidence, it looks like Alice had an old CRA email list and did not manage to update it when she was copying the CRA’s records.

Perhaps instead of appointing 15 new members to the CRA’s board to ensure the 2/3 needed to expel us from the organization – they should have attempted to find people who would be effective? (hint, they all resigned)

Finding real leaders for CRA might cause a loss of control of the fraud-based grassroots coalition. Makes you want to run out and join the CRA, huh?

CRA Update: Those Worried About A Data Breech Did What???

CRA DropboxAs you know, the Bathroom Boys were obsessed over a Data Breech. I am wondering if they will lynch the brain surgeon that did this.

That is correct, I got a dropbox invitation to get a copy of the CRA’s Social Media Resources.

Perhaps this was a set up by the CRA’s Lawyers to bait us in to getting the files so they could sue us over using the information? Update – this is not the case, they were as surprised as I was to receive this.

Perhaps this was a set up to try to backdoor my DropBox account creating a bridge for all who get these files to see each other’s dropbox accounts?

My money is on the stupidity angle. This is the CRA after all – a fraud-based grassroots coalition.

CRA Update: Add Ed Rowen to the List of the Duplicitous As He Shreds Kirk Uhler in an Email

 California Republican Assembly, CRA, Placer County Republican Assembly  Comments Off on CRA Update: Add Ed Rowen to the List of the Duplicitous As He Shreds Kirk Uhler in an Email
Jun 152015

Dennis Revell was right. He was right for the wrong reason. He had roundly criticized Ed Rowen over a year ago when he ran for a vacancy on the Placer GOP Central Committee. Revell had cited Ed’s Anger Management issues – I think Revell was on to something and may not have fully understood that Ed’s real issue is a complete lack of integrity (which is where his unstable behavior comes from).

I knew it did not sit well with Ed Rowen when Kirk Uhler stepped up to run for Placer CRA President.

10 days before the CRA Convention in March – Ed came in to our office nearly panic stricken because he had been a part of a plot to invalidate our officer elections because of a snafu with the location of the meeting. (because Bayside gave Uhler the wrong address for the room we had reserved)

The detail with which Alice Khosravy knew about the events of the Placer CRA officer elections meeting in January told me she an Ed had discussed it in depth. Tom Hudson was the only other person that had complained about the PCRA officer elections. George called him shortly after Ed was in our office. Hudson sounded shocked when George talked to him – like he had been caught.

For at least the last year of Ed’s term as PCRA President, he spoke to Alice frequently. Alice, in her manipulative way made sure to tell us that Ed Rowen never had anything good to say about George or I behind our back – as it has been her pattern to play people off against each other.

We got Ed to send us an email detailing the plot he was a part of. We forwarded the email to the credentials committee in order to stop the attempt that Alice, Ed and (likely Tom) were going to make to de-credential Placer’s delegates. (while Alice and company were credentialing 5 ineligible delegates from SCVRA, and the delegates of the three other fraudulent units)

Ultimately – Jim Shoemaker and the CRA Weed-Eater Tim Thiesen cited the revelation of this plot as one of their reasons for asking for our expulsion as most of the CRA Complaints against George and I were designed to cover up the malfeasance at our expense.

Ed Rowen was promised that once George was knocked off the board and Alice had run against John Briscoe successfully from the floor, he would be made President of the Placer CRA again.

When Ed lived in Santa Clara County – he had a reputation for double-dealing. It is his demonstrated pattern of this that causes people to doubt him when he does tell the truth. (Such as when he told us about this plot to de-credential the Placer RA)

Ed Rowen has also been quite clear that much of his identity was and is tied up in his titles with CRA.

Ed was present at the 5/30 Placer CRA Board Meeting. At that meeting, he was fiercely critical of Tom Hudson. In the last two months, on the phone or in person with either George or I, he has railed on Tom Hudson and others within CRA.

So, why would it be no surprise that Ed would turn on Kirk Uhler, George and I?

Here is an email Ed typed in response to Mark Gardner’s logical gymnastics that I posted a bit ago:

I wanted to note to the Board they also have the PCRA Banner and the Mike System that was bought with club funds…I have been a CRA Member since 1981, my Mother and Father were both members and so was my Grandfather who attended his fist Convention in 1938 and was a Sicilian Immigrant who came to this country in 1915.  I was a Club President for four terms in Santa Clara County and was President of the PCRA for three terms.  Never in my life I have ever met three people who have been more of a disgrace to the organization then these three. It will take a while for the PCRA to be back where we were, but I am glad to rid of myself and the group of those three.  All I can say to  all of you is thank you….


Note – Ed piles on accusing us of stealing more stuff.

Then he lays out how part of his identity is being a part of CRA.

Then he lays in to Kirk, George and I.

Then he thanks the CRA’s board for giving him the club back so his life is complete again.

The logical conclusion from this exercise? If you let Ed Rowen be a part of your campaign for office – he will do the same to you.

CRA Update: Mark Gardner Reveals More CRA Fraud While Trying to be Right

 California Republican Assembly, CRA  Comments Off on CRA Update: Mark Gardner Reveals More CRA Fraud While Trying to be Right
Jun 142015

This is Mark Gardner, so you know what he looks like at the next CRP Convention.

Mark Gardner responded to this blog by sending the new CRA Board (15 of whom were appointed by Tom Hudson before George and I were lynched) an email re asserting his authoritah.

In the email – he asserts that the PCRA elected Ed Rowen Temporary President of the “Unit” in a board meeting of the remaining board members.

The PCRA has no right to be upset by the fact that two of their members were expelled for life from the CRA.

That the unit still has 103 members.

And – that the unit had no right to prepare checks in advance of the 5/30 board meeting where the money was spent.

There is a reason why I call Mark Gardner the CRA Rhodes Scholar – he has to be right and show everyone so, plus he has to make sure everyone sees his authoritah. (Like Cartman in South Park)

Ok – in the process of being so right, he says that Tracy Mendonsa is still on PCRA Board and says that Kirk Uhler is still on PCRA Board. This means then that Tracy and Kirk would have had to participate in electing Ed Rowen the temporary President of PCRA. Unless, of course they were not notified of said meeting and it was a jam-down by an embarrassed and freaked out Tom Hudson.

You see – if Kirk actually resigned as PCRA President, he’d be the immediate past president and still on the board! DOH! This means that Tom Hudson and Ed Rowen committed more fraud within CRA by holding a “board meeting” for the Placer RA without two of the remaining three board members being notified. With Mark Gardner certifying a PCRA board election in writing – he has effectively outed Tom Hudson and Ed Rowen.

It gets better – there is no provision within PCRA By-Laws to elect a new President other than a general meeting of the unit. Either Tracy Mendonsa or Kirk Uhler are the President of the Unit right now, the club board can not replace the President in the case of a resignation. The only outcome is the Vice President taking over.

Being right has it’s consequences. Perhaps this is why the CRA is down to 1,000 members statewide?

What kind of message does it send to the political world when the state board tells a unit that surrenders its’ charter – nope, you are all still members, like it or not. Let me take a stab at it – the 50 or so “members” of the SCVRA whose dues have been paid for them for 2-4 years depending on the case is the paradigm of the CRA’s new board. (fraud)

Update: It just occurred to me that in the course of telling us how wrong we were that Mark Gardner legitimized the 5/30 PCRA Board Meeting. There is no way the resignations that he cites could have occurred otherwise, Kirk did not resign as PCRA President, he signed the email in the context of the club resigning. Since Mark is citing Kirk’s email and challenging the results of the PCRA’s board meeting – he has recognized the board meeting. Thank you Mark for undermining Tom Hudson. This rocks. If the 900 club are stupid enough to file a court case, they were just royally screwed over by Mark Gardner. BTW – the 5/30 board meeting was legitimate and Tom Hudson knows it.

If I had not been expelled for life from the CRA – I would bet that my dues would be paid in 2016 for me. I will also bet that many of the 95-100 people that bailed out of the CRA will have their dues paid for them by the PCRA in future years. (with what money?) That’s just awesome.

But – the most laughable of all charges is HOW DARE GEORGE PREPARE CHECKS IN ADVANCE. Let me get this straight – with 3 of 5 board members on board with refunding dues and mailing checks to local charities (which actually got Ed Rowen’s support as well) – the Treasurer prepared them in advance so they could be mailed out on 5/30. (BTW – the first I heard of the advanced planning was in one of Tom Hudson’s near hysterical email rants)

The nerve of people to be prepared in advance.  The CRA’s State Board thinks it is a big deal – this is what being right does to people. I guess in their mind, every political group that ever spent money in advance of a board vote with a known outcome should be sued, investigated by the FBI, hauled to the Hague, and/or prosecuted.

There is a reason why Tom Hudson has gone berzerk. He knows that 3 of 5 make a majority and under PCRA By-Laws (which he is trying to ignore whilst installing Ed Rowen as the puppet PCRA President) give a majority of the club’s board the right to spend money. The only way he can get what he needs to exact revenge is by turning one of the three board members with threats and intimidation. Whoops.

Hey! Bet it makes you want to join CRA, huh? Isn’t how right they are impressive? Below is the text of Gardner’s brilliance.

Fellow Board Members, please see the attached letter sent to Mr. Kirk Uhler yesterday in my role as Parliamentarian of the CRA. In it you should find several notable points,

1) The actions and complaints filed regarding the behavior of George and Aaron Park as board members were strictly directed at them, no unit or other members were involved or implicated and to my knowledge no units or other members of CRA are or have been charged with any complaints at this time.

2) The Placer County RA is currently a functioning unit of CRA consisting of currently 103 members including current CRA board members President Tom Hudson, Corresponding Secretary Christy Park, and Deputy Senate District Director Ed Rowen who the remaining members of the PCRA board have appointed interim President of the unit until their reorganization/election meeting on July 14th. PCRA member Tracy Mendonsa has resigned as a CRA board member. The status and title of Kirk Uhler,  who also remains a member, is provided for in the PCRA by-laws.

3) In accordance with CRA by-laws it would now require 69 members to be in attendance and voting in the affirmative at a duly called meeting of the PCRA to resign their charter after which acceptance of same is required of our bod at our next called meeting which is currently scheduled for September 19th in conjunction with the CRP convention.

4) The withdrawal of funds from the several accounts of the PCRA was not done in accordance with the CRA by-laws and appears to have been done in advance of the so called resignation meeting of the PCRA board of directors by then treasurer George Park. These funds need to be returned to the new PCRA Treasurer for redeposit into the appropriate accounts immediately.

Should you have any questions regarding this please feel free to contact me or President Tom Hudson,


Mark Gardner
