 In case you missed it – the CRA is currently taking an on-line board vote to appoint a lawsuit committee!

 It looks like Park derangement syndrome has affected the entire CRA board. They can’t help themselves, they feel violated. They have to win the war at all costs. It wasn’t enough to throw us out of the CRA for life. They were denied the satisfaction of even causing us to skip a beat politically.

So, let’s take a look at what has happened thus far.

One legal threat letter to me, at least four threats against George, one sent to Kirk Uhler, at least one each sent to Courage Worldwide, Acres of Hope and Lighthouse Family Counseling.

Apparently, the new CRA believes that sending out legal demands is the way to win elections. Apparently, the new CRA believes that bullying local charities is a way to register new voters and elect more Republicans.

I have learned that Tom Hudson has an extremely poor reputation in Republican circles. He is known as a bully and someone without a conscience. (a classic narcissist) Since Hudson hails from the same circles that brought us a lot of the conservative frauds that decimated the CA GOP itself in the late 90’s to the 2000’s, it makes sense.

Others on the CRA Board, including Tim Thiesen and Alice Khosravy have similarly poor reputations as unsolicited comments I am receiving about them (from the few that know them) have never been positive. It seems like the CRA has become an insane asylum and that is sad. The few sane people left are ridiculed and scorned.

My intel tells me that other CRA Board members have lost jobs over this saga. How much further will the CRA’s leadership go in their jihad?

I have learned of efforts to charter what I believe to be more dubious CRA units by various CRA officers. Is this an admission by Tom Hudson that he is going to have to cheat like his co-conspirators in order to win CRA officer elections? (where was this effort to try to charter new units last year?)

Is part of Tom Hudson’s rampage being fueled by the fact that he knows his re-election as CRA President is in Jeopardy?

The CRA has about $30k in the bank. George and I can legitimately claim that all of it exists because of the conventions we ran. I raised $24k of it myself from a list of donors that the CRA Board had the audacity to ask me for. (while threatening to sue me, after kicking me out for life)

It appears that Tom Hudson and friends need revenge so badly that they want to spend some of that money (because Tom will never spend his own money) filing frivolous lawsuits. They are right, don’t you know, this is all that matters.

The CRA could get de-chartered for violating the CRP’s by-laws. (Expect Tom Hudson and Craig Alexander to attempt some sort of legal BS to skirt the CRP’s rules… remember, it is all about the win here)

CRA Board Members that are CRP delegates could lose their badges over the pending lawsuits. These include people like Tim Thiesen and Alice Khosravy who have been hiding while Tom Hudson et. al. have been on their rampage. Don’t look now, but it is likely that those two along with the bathroom boys are planning to run Tom and Craig out of CRA leadership, because they are not just right, they are really right.

The CRA could lose all of its’ money in a court case. The CRA’s membership could revolt over this.

Having worked with drug addicts and low-bottom alcoholics, I understand the mentality of self-destructive behavior. Have any of them thought about the consequences to the CRA regarding what they are doing?

There is no way they could have. No one in politics is stupid enough to threaten local charities with legal demand letters. No lawyer worth their salt accuses people publicly of committing felonies while contemplating civil legal action. Meet Tom Hudson, he is a government lawyer and he is taking the CRA down the toilet with him.

Don’t count on the other members of the litigation committee to be rational (except for Greg Goehring) – and Tom Hudson is getting the entire CRA Board to jeopardize themselves personally and legally so he can continue to conduct his rampage.  George was right – Tom Hudson will not stop until he or us are completely destroyed. Mr. Hudson has demonstrated that he regards nothing or anyone other than himself – so anyone close to him will also get caught in the vortex.

Meantime, there is a pivotal election in America’s history coming up. I guess the CRA missed the memo.

I got a copy of an email from this morning. The CRA is asking for its’ board to appoint a Special Litigation Committee by Tuesday August 4th at 8AM.

We warned you. This is what the all-consuming desire to be right looks like when you are dealing with a pack of rabid dogs in a nerd colony.

If you read the text of the letter – a couple of things should jump out at you. Are they expecting a lawsuit? Are they going to file a lawsuit?

Who are they going to sue? (One clue could be the reference to conflicts of interest with spouses of “someone the organization may have a claim against”) My sister-in-law is still on the CRA’s Board.

Are they going to sue the charitable organizations they have been sending legal threats to? (They already bullied Acres of Hope successfully)

Are they going to sue the former board of the former Placer CRA that voted 4-0 to donate the money? (Better get yourself an attorney, Ed Rowen)

The makeup of the committee are some of the most rabid dogs on the CRA’s board, so caution and rationality are out the window. (with the exception of Greg Goehring)

However, you have to take a good look at the recent events as written about on this blog and you should ask even more questions:

Is this related to Tom Hudson’s ego being bruised?

Is this related to Tom Hudson needing to go back to the State CRA’s board after-the-fact in order to get them to sanction his rogue actions?

What does the CRA hope to gain out of this? Members? Good Press?

Do the board members of the CRA think that the timing of this will help their efforts to stop the bleeding in the organization?

Does Tom Hudson think that the Placer GOP and Tom McClintock are going to gain from this as he is publicly tied to both…

Logic is out the window. Political insiders will think about the California GOP’s rules about lawsuits and ask questions from that paradigm, but the pattern of behavior has more resembled a sociopath on a rampage to get his next victim.

Asking the questions about what the “benefits” of these lawsuits, threats and bullying are to the GOP at large, then asking how this registers more voters and asking how this elects more Republicans are moot related to the pattern of behavior here. Tom Hudson will destroy himself and anyone else that helps him in order to be right – and I write this blog and others related to his actions as a man that has known him 18 years.

The CRA is already starting to sink. All over the state, reports are coming in and they are not good. You may even ask yourself if this is some sort of murder-suicide pact that the CRA’s 900-club are leading the organization in to.

For those of you that know my background in dealing with substance abuse and helping others, I have seen a lot of people dig their own graves before. This is a special case where people are already in their grave and are starting to bury themselves in it.

There is a reason why now CRA Membership Secretary Carl Brickey refers to Tom Hudson as a sociopath. It is because Tom Hudson has demonstrated through the years that he is indeed a borderline personality with his actions.

I got to start experiencing that with the Tom McClintock non-endorsement saga and it has carried through to his rampage locally. Tom Hudson is indeed a close ally of Tom McClintock and has been since he got elected to congress.

This is why Mine and George’s ouster from the CRA was centered around the non-endorsement of Tom McClintock, we needed to take the fall for it so Tom Hudson could save himself. But, now that we are gone, Tom Hudson is on display with no straw man for the typical political types to be distracted by.

As Mr. Hudson continues to spiral out of control, he is making larger and larger political mistakes.

Tom Hudson and his surrogates threatened the three local charities that the Placer CRA donated to. I learned via an email that Joe Dorr (one of Hudson’s few remaining allies in Placer County) threatened Courage Worldwide via a phone call on behalf of Tom Hudson and the Placer CRA. (That is the Placer RA that the state CRA board recognizes)

Joe Dorr made it clear that if Courage Worldwide did not return the money that there would be “legal action”. I have the email.

Acres of Hope – a shelter for Mothers and Children that helps them get off the streets, get clean and get job skills – was also threatened by Hudson. They have a policy of returning all disputed donations. (I guess someone wanting to mess them up could dispute the donations from corporate donors)

So, Mr. Hudson partially got his own way. The bullying and the legal threats netted the Placer CRA $1400 back from Acres of Hope. When Carl Brickey referred to Tom Hudson as a sociopath, he was referring to Tom Hudson having zero conscience once he thinks he is right.

This would include his binge-drinking fueled rampages against anyone and everyone that he thinks is wrong. This is the sad lonely life of a nerd. (who is in the middle of a divorce)

How many Women and Children at Acres of Hope had their services or programs interrupted because of Tom Hudson’s legal threats? Did the State CRA sign off on this? What would Ken Campbell say about this? (I saw him recently at a fundraiser that my wife Emceed for Acres of Hope)

Joe Dorr, Tom Hudson and the puppet President of the CRA, Ed Rowen are all associated with the Placer County Republican Party Central Committee. Wait until the local media gets hold of this story. With the media digging up 30 year old stories about Presidential candidates, some fresh recent kill related to a local Republican Lawyer bullying a local women’s shelter should be great press for the Placer GOP. Since Placer GOP Chairman Dennis Revell owns a PR firm, I hope he is ready for the typhoon that is headed his way.

Repeatedly, our decision to dissolve the Placer CRA has been proven to be wise. The State CRA is a train-wreck and their part in this saga can not be ignored as it was the law office of Craig Alexander from Southern Orange County whose stationery the legal threats was delivered on.

Ed Rowen is once again “President” of the Placer CRA. The photos show that the club likely lacks enough members to be a valid unit. If there was a court case, we could show multiple violations of state CRA by-laws in order to lead to that outcome – but the CRA has already demonstrated that the by-laws are flexible in the name of being right.

That same ED Rowen has been publicly accused of embezzlement by Mr. Hudson related to his yes vote on sending the money out to the three charities to begin with.

Tom Hudson’s internal desire to be right is not going to end well for Tom McClintock, the Placer County Republican Party or the CRA. With each successive empty wine bottle the powder keg gets larger.

We warned you. The CRA saga will not stop and won’t for years.

We understand the type of maladjusted people to whom being right is like meth is to a crank addict. They run the CRA.

Tom Hudson’s God is money. It is not Jesus Christ. I have known him for nearly 18 years and the stories of the kinds of things he does to save a dime are legendary. I have drawn my conclusions about Mr. Hudson’s moral bankruptcy over the last 18 months as every negative thing I have ever been told about his character by other political types has borne out in front of my eyes in real time. (For the first 17 years, I had never been a recipient of Tom’s amoral behavior pattern)

This is why someone who makes $119k a year (+ benefits + retirement) has assets hidden in trusts / entities and cries poor to anyone who will listen.

This is also why a 4-0 Vote of the Placer CRA’s Board of Directors to donate money to three local charities is driving him insane. He is too cheap to donate some of his taxpayer-funded salary to the “new” Placer CRA he is forcing in to existence. The smart thing would have been for Tom to call one of his friends and raise a few bucks for the club. Maybe he doesn’t have any left?

Never mind that if Hudson was stupid enough to go to small claims court – he could not prove that Kirk Uhler resigned as President of the Placer CRA, nor could he prove that the 4-0 board vote was invalid and nor could he prove that the board did not have the authority to spend the money. (Hint: It did.)

Hudson’s ego is so bruised and his life is in such turmoil that he has to go on a psychotic revenge mission until it destroys him. While Hudson and his fellow Lawyer, CRA Executive VP Craig Alexander (whose letterhead is used for the legal demands) are pursuing this suicide mission – their fellow maladjusted nerds on the CRA Board are already laying in the weeds waiting to wipe them both off the CRA’s board.

At the recent Placer GOP Central Committee Meeting (where they once again rejected future Roseville Councilmember Tracy Mendonsa for a vacancy) – Tom Hudson got up and attacked Tracy Mendonsa personally in front of the group, accusing him of embezzlement. I guess this means that Ed Rowen – his hand-picked President of the “New” Placer CRA is guilty of embezzlement because Ed Rowen voted yes on donating the money to the three charities along with Kirk Uhler, Tracy Mendonsa and George Park. Dennis Revell and others were so embarrassed by Tom’s actions that they apologized to Mr. Mendonsa personally.

Tom Hudson followed up his public attack by threatening Mendonsa directly. I guess Hudson is going to help elect democrats just so he can win this argument. Hudson has also repeated the embezzlement mantra to other groups – and if he is as much like Karen England as I think he is – it is likely he is going to local Tea Parties in his rampage. (I doubt he gets far as many of them have grown up a lot in the last several years)

There truly is no honor – the man (Rowen) who a few weeks ago was thanking the State Board for their help in re-installing him as president of PCRA (while attacking Kirk Uhler, George and Myself in the same email) is now being attacked publicly for embezzlement by the State CRA President (Mr. Hudson).

Strange things happen when you are obsessed with being right.

It does not stop there. Tom Hudson (In my opinion) drafted a letter that was sent by Craig Alexander to the three local charities demanding the money back! Click here to read it yourself. 

Tom Hudson must believe he is really right to do something like this as threatening Courage Worldwide is one of the most stupid things I have ever seen in politics. Lighthouse Family Counseling and Acres of Hope were the other two that received money – it is 100% certain that they received the exact same letter with their info on it instead of that of courage.

If you would like to fight sex trafficking – Courage Worldwide is one of the first and foremost groups in this fight. My wife has advocated for them for the last six years on her radio show and this is why they were selected to receive the funds as we were shutting the club down.

Just because the State CRA’s board of directors decided to selectively enforce the state by-laws and keep the Placer CRA in existence with arbitrarily selected officers, it still does not mean that they can undo the actions of the former board to spend the money. Tom Hudson knows this, but can not admit it as he has to keep the CRA together for his own reputation – just like when he went psycho over the McClintock non-endorsement saga.

Scary, isn’t it.

The left-wing media hates the Placer County Republican Central Committee. They had Tom Hudson in leg irons and an Orange jumpsuit before the FPPC came in and said, “We have no evidence” (bureaucrat speak for you did nothing wrong).

Like the Chris Beckman “whistle-blowing” against Robert Weygandt and Kirk Uhler – there is no there, there.

Now Jim Ruffalo has it on good authority that Tom Husdon is on the outs and there is a Lynch Mob forming.

Quotting Ruffalo: “In fact, we’re reliably told that several high-power Republicans are starting to lean on Hudson.

Really? Who? Assemblymembers? Congressman McClintock? That would be news to me, Hudson or George Park(s) my Brother and First Vice-Chair of the Central Committee. (Note the spelling please, Jim)

It’s probably just coincidence, but Hudson’s Facebook site — which had been open to one and all for viewing in order to see just how high-powered his “friends” are — now is restricted to viewing. And the California Republican Assembly Web site, which had listed Hudson in several places, now has grayed-out the spots where his name once was able to be viewed.

Aside from Ruffalo’s cheap shot over the security settings on his personal Facebook account, Tom Hudson is a regional Vice-Chairman for the California Republican Party itself. The By-Laws and customary traditions when you hold CRP office dictate you minimize your affiliations with groups whose membership are a subset.

Had Ruffalo done some research, he’d have spelled George’s name correctly and known about the CRP By-Laws and its’ affect on volunteer club titles.

I am looking for some honesty and journalistic integrity here – we all know the FPPC story was pushed from one end of the state to the other by disgruntled consultants. However, was this column more about the annoyance that the Central Committee was exhonerated and has over $43,000 in the bank?

AJ editor Deric Rothe was treated far better by the criminal justice system and he is a convicted felon for Pete’s sake!

P.S. On a personal note, Ruffalo goes on to suggest that Hudson will resign and George Parks will take over – read:

But I won’t be surprised if he steps down as chair, remains on the executive board and has somebody such as George Parks assume the chairmanship.

Of course, if that happens, look for Hudson’s lips to move whenever the new chairman speaks. …

Anyone that knows George Park knows he is no one’s sock puppet. Mr. Ruffalo needs to use more than Auburn electeds / Political club members as his sources.
