Have you heard the news? Tom Hudson is leading a coup at the Placer GOP. At least he thought he was.

Placer GOP Chairman Dennis Revell after a largely successful tenure as Placer GOP Chair resigned due to some serious health issues.

That’s not what Tom Hudson is saying, of course.

Hudson’s divorce is in its’ 4th year of him filing all sorts of delaying motions designed to bankrupt his soon to be ex-wife. That is a lot of stuff for Hudson to try and control.

In the meantime, the CRA is in the midst of another Coup. (See, it was never really about George and I… it is about the toxic culture of CRA) They are getting ready to oust Tom Hudson as CRA Chair and Johnnie Morgan has recruited a slate of candidates for senior CRA offices. Morgan is running for CRA President.

It has been put to me that Hudson no longer has the support within the CRA to remain as Chair. As a result then, he needs a new gig in order to maintain his relevance.

Now, you have perspective for the Placer GOP situation and why Hudson is striking now.

BTW – allow me to disclaim that several people on the Placer GOP that are supporting Tom’s aggressive action are indeed good people (some are also friends). However, they are going to learn the hard way about Hudson’s mental health issues and lack of character.

In the meantime, I hope Dennis is able to fully recover from his health issues. I believe that Jeff Short (who also resigned as treasurer) and Dennis Revell will be better off for leaving the Placer GOP Cent Com.

For the rest of you looking to make a difference in Placer County – there is always the Placer County Impact Republicans.

As Thomas N Hudson’s life continues to spiral apart, his behavior is getting quite a bit more erratic. His rage and anger outbursts are already stuff of legend and are sometimes down right comical when coupled with his 5′-4.5″ 300 pound frame.

Lately, as he has been dragging his divorce proceeding in to its’ third year, the Board of Equalization just got gutted by the State Legislature over its’ rampant corruption. This means Mr. Hudson will likely find himself having to apply and interview for another government job at a lower salary.

Perhaps this contributed to his immature and boorish behavior on Wednesday Night where he single-handedly needed to extend a Placer GOP Meeting another 90 minutes. Despite being told that the County Facility was to be vacate by 9pm, Hudson held everyone hostage until 9:55PM.

At issue was an endorsement of the Neighborhood Legislature Initiative. Let’s have some more background so the readers of this blog get a more rounded picture of this situation.

At the recent CRA Convention, Mr. Hudson was leveraging the CRA and one such leverage play was related to the John Cox for Governor Campaign / Neighborhood Legislature Initiative.

Mr. Cox was set to be the dinner speaker at the CRA Convention until about 9 days out when Mr. Cox was supplanted by the deranged Tim Donnelly. The culprit behind the schedule change was none other than the CRA’s Pol-Pot bellied information minister.

Upon hearing he had been jilted by Tim Donnelly’s book tour, Mr. Cox cancelled. Mr. Hudson then made sure the Neighborhood Legislature was deferred to a later CRA Convention for consideration, again filibustering and using his knowledge of Robert’s Rules to control an outcome.

Yours truly called Mr. Hudson on his duplicity, soliciting donations from a Man he was trying to screw.

It is my opinion that the exposure of this is what was driving Hudson’s near psychotic anger on Wednesday night.

There is another piece of background. I’ve written a lot about the effort in 2012 to unseat the Conservatives with people “Republican Leadership” wanted on the Central Committee. Hudson was one targeted, but is now aligned with the Tea Partiers that once wanted to throw him in jail for money laundering. (Remember FBI day and the front page Bee Story quoting Doug LaMalfa and Ted Gaines accusing Tom Hudson of Felony Money Laundering?)

After that effort paid off in giving the “establishment” control of the Central Committee, Mr. Hudson, being the chameleon he is started aligning himself with some of the very people who believed he was stealing money from the Placer GOP via his Headquarters Partnership and other entities he creates to absorb taxes. (Hudson is a tax attorney by trade)

As part of an effort by the local partisan electeds to try to bring unity to the Committee in 2013, Tom McClintock’s Chief of Staff, Igor Birman wrote the current by-laws of the Placer GOP. Hudson lies when he claims that the by laws of 2017 have been the same for years, they have not. This is key. (BTW – Mr. Hudson has 100% command of the details at all times, when he says something inaccurate, it is deliberate. Remember, he is a lawyer and I have known him for 18 years)

Why is it key, it says 2/3 of the committee for an endorsement. It does not say 2/3 of those present. This means that in order to amend the by-laws, one will need 28 votes in order to do so. In order to endorse, one would need 28 votes.

This means that Mr. Hudson’s theatrics and attempts to confuse people with parliamentary tricks  on Wednesday, It is safe to say that the exposure of his duplicity is as much a factor in his efforts to strong-arm an endorsement of Mr. Cox’ initiative than anything else. The vote was 23-11, 5 votes short of the threshold. A subsequent motion made by Tom in an attempt to circumvent the by-laws failed 21-13 (it was a motion to “recognize” the endorsement).

All that said, if this is how Mr. Hudson supports a candidate or cause, I would pay him to oppose a candidate.

The Sad, Shrinking World of the CRA. Driving to Nashville to do What?

Update: Alice Khosravy did not make it to the NFRA Convention. It appears that she cut an ran again due to the exposure.

The National Federation of Republican Assemblies Convention is this weekend in Nashville.

It is their Presidential Preference Convention. Thomas N Hudson has taken a break from his self-righteous rampages to win at all costs against his wife and the local charities that got money from the Placer RA to go to Nashville.

In 2102, the NFRA endorsed Rick Sanatarium. In 2015, the liberal fraud known as Donald Trump will be there as will Sanitarium. I am not sure which other candidates will waste their time on the NFRA, but I know a few in the CRA will!

Recently, Thomas N Hudson started taking measures to try to shore up his tenuous grip on the CRA – including getting Bill Cardoza appointed as NFRA Parlimentarian.

Cardoza is famous for using religious manipulation in order to deceive people in to thinking he is something he is not. In reality, Cardoza is another lazy, ineffective pseudo-conservative who helped ruin the CRP and the CRA due to inaction. In the 17 years I served with Cardoza in the CRA, he never chartered a single unit. Ever. In fact, the Sacramento RA has struggled to stay in existence for the last 4 years.

Recently, Cardoza was involved on the public attack against the Sutter-Yuba Republican Assembly as he was present at their meeting with the Bathroom Boy membership secretary. It was either he or Carl Brickey – or both – that sent the information used by the Bathroom Boy blogger to attack the chairman of the GOP Jim Brulte as well as the SYRA.

IMO Hudson got Cardoza appointed the NFRA parlimentarian for one reason. The NFRA is investigating the CRA over its’ rampant fraud. 

It gets better, the CRA’s black widow – who has been outed as a main source of the fraud – Alice Khosravy is also going to Nashville. Alice and Wendy Albright went to the NFRA in 2011 and have not been back, both told George and I how useless that organization is.

I guess Alice has been forced out of the shadows to do her own clean up and dirty work. Others within CRA have attempted to help cover this up, but fortunately, due to this blog that no one reads… the fraud that is the CRA is well-known within political circles. Despite how really right the bathroom boys are, people seem to believe this blog…

With Cardoza as parlimentarian, you’d think Hudson is counting on him attempting to muck up the process of the investigation in to the CRA’s fraud. At the very least, Cardoza will leak the info that the fraud committee is communicating to Tom. These are the things you have to do to be right.

And to think – all this fighting to control a group that is down to less than 1000 legitimate members (even though I am sure they will report back some 1200-1300).

There is a price to being right. I am sure that Tom Hudson is thinking about how wrong everyone else is but him while on the road to Nashville – what a sad, shrinking world.

Ok – it’s Friday and the news cycle gets bizarre…

A few days ago I heard that Ed Rowen was telling people that Thomas N Hudson said that the Placer County Republican Assembly had successfully recovered all the “embezzled” money that was given to the local charities. Rowen specifically said that Lighthouse Family Counseling had pledged to return their check and that they had gotten the money back from Courage Worldwide according to Tom.

This is about is felony stupid as Donald Trump attacking brown people as a campaign platform. If the local media found out that a Republican group was lawyering local charities in order to be right, what kind of story would that be?

Remember that caper? Thomas N Hudson was embarrassed that the Placer CRA shut itself down and emptied its’ bank accounts. Then, to be right – he interpreted the state by-laws the way he needed them to be, appointed 15 people to the State CRA Board (to make sure he got the vote he wanted to deny the surrender of the local charter) and then started telling the world (his microscopic sphere of influence) that Kirk Uhler and others had embezzled money.

Tom Hudson was wrong. (Neither Courage nor Lighthouse returned their donations, nor will they) It appears that being wrong is common for a government lawyer (who in this case, makes 119K a year). Tom Hudson should have taken a break from playing paperwork games with his divorce and covered the $4250 that was given to the three charities himself.

There is a price to being right. Tom Hudson made sure that the charities got legal demand letters from his right-hand man Craig Alexander. Now, Craig will tell you that this was not a legal demand letter because there are nuanced differences. Tell that to a layperson. But, hey Craig is right – he’s a lawyer like Tom Hudson.

Which gets us back to Ed Rowen. He voted to send that money out. Now he is saying it was stolen. What did Ed Rowen do? Did he steal something none of us know about? Did Ed Rowen throw Tom Hudson under the bus, claiming it was he who went after the charities?

It was Joe Dorr who called and threatened Courage Worldwide. It is Craig Alexander whose legal stationery that the “demand” letters are on. But, here is Ed Rowen fingering Tom Hudson as the mastermind.

Tom Hudson melted down at the August Placer County GOP Central Committee Meeting. He publicly accused Tracy Mendonsa of embezzlement at the meeting, then threatened him in writing later that night. (ostensibly after a few belts)

It seems that Tom and Ed have taken turns throwing each other under the bus, almost like they were separated at birth or something.

Ed did tell me one time that the only way to get Tom Hudson to do the right thing was to lie to him. I guess I should have told Tom Hudson he was right more often…

CRA Update: The Sad, Shrinking World of Tom Hudson

In many ways, Tom Hudson’s world is shrinking. Once such way is the CRA – which continues to hemorrhage members.

Mr. Hudson did indeed respond to my inquiry a second time:

You and I both know that Bill Tolson has never sought my approval for anything that he has ever written.  We both know that if I had approved his blog, it would look very different.  I don’t think I have even communicated with Bill about his blog since April, but Bill can correct the record if I have forgotten something.
Since you claim to be a Christian, I should remind you that telling lies is morally wrong and you should refrain from doing it.  It can also be illegal in many situations.  You may feel clever telling people that I have approved of Bill Tolson’s blog, but the momentary pleasure you may feel by telling such lies is off-set by more serious consequences down the road.
Take a few moments and think about the way you are treating people.
No need to reply, especially since I have not yet read your initial note.
Tom
I am wondering if the Bus that ran through Eastern Elk Grove was a Blue Bird or an International. I prefer International Buses as they have much more reliable transmissions. If you see Mr. Tolson – ask him what the number of the Bus Hudson sent for him was.
I am pretty sure Tom did indeed read the email – in the 18 years I have known him, he has only invoked religious manipulation when nailed to the wall. I would remind Tom about the laundry list of things, but as a Narcissist bordering on being a Sociopath (my diagnosis based on nearly 13 years in addiction recovery) – he is incapable of grasping his own defects of character. This is a common ailment amongst political types and the proliferation of them in CRA leadership has mortally wounded CRA.
It is clear to me that Mr. Hudson is making no effort to control the pack of rabid dogs that suffice as leadership for the current CRA and may well be complicit in their behavior. That is certainly bad for business, however.
What a small world it is indeed.
