71417973Thomas N Hudson. Yes, THAT Thomas N. Hudson – the CRA’s Pol-Pot Bellied Information Minister. Thomas N. Hudson, government lawyer. Thomas N. Hudson, political consultant. Thomas N. Hudson, senior tax counsel.

I’ve known Thomas N. Hudson since 2000. He is skilled at lying, concealing conflicts of interest, double-dealing, hiding assets, legal double speak and a host of other activities that are far from conservative. He is also a rage-ball bully. All of these things I have observed and discovered. Several people I know have attempted to co-opt Tom or manipulate Tom, but Mr. Hudson has been equal to it all.

However, recently – Mr. Hudson’s out of control life has been catching up to him.

After years of fighting, he ended up with not one, but two FPPC fines for money laundering. Ironically, some of his current political allies were calling for his head in 2011 and were rallying around the Sacramento Bee story in 2011 that quoted Ted Gaines and Doug LaMalfa accusing Mr. Hudson of money laundering. Mr. Hudson got a lot of cover from yours truly because my brother was also falsely accused of doing the same. I will continue reminding the idiots as well as people like David Stafford Reade (who I believe orchestrated the Bee Story to gin up the local Tea Party in to a lather) about these lies until one of the following three things happen, I get a written and public apology (which will never happen) or I die or they die.

I will remind the readers that Mr. Reade made sure several of the people he used to get Dennis Revell elected Placer GOP Chairman in 2012 (in no small part using the lie about the corruption and financial malfeasance) were discarded in 2016.

Thomas N Hudson took George down in to the sewer where he has lived for years – except that George did not do what it appears Mr. Hudson did. George does not cheat on his income taxes, I have reason to believe that Mr. Hudson does as he has a series of assets hidden in trusts, a series of business entities he is associated with (one of which is how George got burnt) and of course his legal machinations to try to get out of the consequences of what I have seen as a demonstrated pattern of dishonesty.

Thomas N Hudson has been fined by the FPPC twice. He got hit once for $200 for failing to report the Headquarters Partnership on his form 700 (a government financial conflict of interest disclosure employees must file) and he also ended up paying a whopping $5000 fine related to multiple violations committed by the fraudulent shell organization he runs called the California Taxpayer Protection Committee (racket).

HUDSON, THOMAS, 2010/0741 (2013) 87300 – 1 count $200 Thomas Hudson, a Tax Counsel III (Specialist) for the California State Board of Equalization (“BOE”), failed to timely disclose a business interest (which was required to be disclosed by the BOE Conflict of Interest Code) on his 2010 Annual Statement of Economic Interests.

HUDSON, THOMAS N./CALIFORNIA TAXPAYER PROTECTION COMMITTEE, 2012/0106 (2013) 84211(k) & 84303 – 1 count 84204(c) – 1 count $5,500 California Taxpayer Protection Committee and its Treasurer, Thomas N. Hudson, failed to timely report subvendor information for payments, totaling $252,653.63, made during the reporting periods ending June 30, September 30, and December 31, 2008. Respondents also failed to report twelve late independent expenditures, totaling $85,194.85, made to oppose or support local candidates and measures in the June 3 and November 4, 2008 elections, to the local filing officer within 24 hours.

In both cases, Thomas N Hudson fought the fines for several years thinking he could run out the clock. He lost. In his current divorce, it appears that he is trying to do the same thing.

Thomas N Hudson is notoriously cheap, just how bad will be the subject of a later post – but let this sink in, Hudson’s oldest daughter turns 18 next year. It does not take much critical thinking to realize that if he can delay the resolution of the divorce with legal wrangling, he can avoid paying a dime of child support for his daughter. She must feel loved and special.

I have written that Thomas N Hudson has two Gods, winning and money. Our long standing friendship was a casualty, he changes political allies like shirts and his own daughter is experiencing it right now. Meantime, more boxes of wine are emptied and Mr. Hudson continues to balloon as large as the character in Austin Powers.

Fasten your seat belts because he is going to worship at both altars, but this time he may well get crucified while doing so. Even more sad is that in his narcissism he won’t see it coming because he is right don’t you know.

Meantime, if you’re running for office – stay as far away from this guy and his crew as you can.

At a recent Placer GOP Central Committee meeting, Placer GOP Chairman Dennis Revell was absent and basically handed the floor of the meeting to Ken Campbell to trash Kirk Uhler while Vice-Chairman and deposed former Auburn Council-member Mike Holmes was holding the gavel. It should be noted that Holmes and other allegedly unbiased Cent Com leadership members huddled with the Pol-Pot Bellied CRA Information Minister Thomas N Hudson before said roasting.

Ken Campbell has a seething, firey rage for Kirk Uhler that dates back to 2004 when he was forced out as Chairman of the Placer GOP for torching several local officeholders over a dispute related to the finances of the committee. (Sound familiar?) Thomas N Hudson, once a target of Ken’s psychosis is now on the same side as Ken (for now) as Hudson’s ego is bruised over the dissolution of the Placer County RA Chapter.

At the aforementioned recent Placer GOP meeting, Ken Campbell extolled the virtues of commie-lib hippie Jennifer Montgomery, stating that “She can be worked with”. Jennifer Montgomery is an act-blue democrat who has been open about her democratic socialist views. Apparently, Ken Campbell has gotten more liberal with (r)age. At the same time, he talked about what a sell out Kirk Uhler was and how bad he is for the taxpayers of Placer County. Thomas N Hudson added his snide remarks for emphasis at the same meeting.

It was reported to me that some at the meeting were bemoaning that Kirk Uhler did not have an opponent. Why? Do they want another reasonable communist like Jennifer Montgomery? Do they want to make Placer County Great Again?

About a year ago, Ken Campbell’s buddies in Beth Gaines’ office attempted a smear campaign against Supervisor Uhler that was later exposed and debunked. Remember it? Then Beth Gaines Chief of Staff Dave Titus and her then district director and now Chief of Staff Jeff Short planted a lie in the local tea party basically asserting that Kirk Uhler was single-handedly attempting to raise our taxes via the Placer County Transportation Agency.

Fast-Forward to yesterday.

The PCTPA adoped a legislative agenda for 2016. For the benefit of Mr. Campbell and others that may still listen to him – let’s have a look at a key bullet on page one, “Support the establishment of a 55% majority threshold for the passage of a local option transportation sales tax…”

That would be gutting Prop 13.

And, on page 2 of the document is a reference to supporting AB 1591 (Frazier).

Yes – this is raising gas taxes $.22 a gallon and raising the car tax $38 a car. Frazier calls these moderate on his website.

So – If you believe Ken Campbell, then you could make bank that Kirk Uhler supported both of these items in the PCTPA legislative agenda.

Once again, the Pol-Pot Bellied CRA Information Minister and Mr. Campbell flew straight in to a brick wall of truth:

ACTION REQUESTED:

1)      Adopt the State Legislative Program for 2016 as shown in Attachment 1 (see attached State Leg Program)

AYES:                    Berlant, Hesch, Nader, Rohan, Ruslin

NOES:                  Holmes, Trebess, Uhler

ABSTAIN:            Wheeler

2)      Take a position of support for AB 1591 (Frazier):

AYES:                    Berlant, Hesch, Nader, Rohan, Ruslin, Treabess, Wheeler

NOES:                  Holmes, Uhler

ABSTAIN:            None

For those of you reading this that have been conditioned to believe I am a liar – go get the minutes of the most recent PCTPA meting.

For those of you not familiar with all the names on the list:

Daniel Berlant  – Auburn Councilmember

Tony Hesch – Colfax Councilmember

Stan Nader – Lincoln Councilmember

Susan Rohan – Roseville Councilmember

Diana Ruslin – Rocklin Councilmember

Ron Treabess – Member at Large from the Public. Works in Tahoe Resort Association

Dave Wheeler – Loomis Town Councilmember

Jim Holmes – Placer County Supervisor District 3

Kirk Uhler – Placer County Supervisor District 4

Perhaps the move to supporting gutting Prop 13 is due to the fact that the mass mailings and the thousands in consulting fees have not been able to move public opinion on the issue. Ironically, I just got one recently, see here and here for a lousy scanned copy. I was sent a copy of the summary of a recent poll that only shows 63% support for the tax increase – which any seasoned observer knows will collapse once campaigned against. (You need 66.67% to pass it)

I know most all the people on this board. I am absolutely befuddled that they would support gutting Prop 13 and the massive tax hike of Jim #Epicfail Frazier of AD11. There has to be an explanation.

However, Ken Campbell’s psychotic rage against Kirk Uhler is destructive for all of us. He and Thomas N Hudson are so blinded by their rage that they are attempting to raise our taxes in their rampage to unseat one of the apparently few true fiscal conservatives in local government. I wonder what the California Taxpayer Protection committee would say if they knew Thomas N Hudson was trying to run Kirk Uhler out of office? Whoops, it is as fake as the CRA. #facepalm.

There is a price to being right. Wendy Albright was one of those sending self-righteous emails and telling people about all the money that was allegedly stolen by George and others from the CRA.

Now Wendy Albright has to come up with $10,000 to pay her fppc fine for get this, not doing her paperwork for AD38 GOP Central Committee and for also refusing to respond to multiple attempts to contact.

We warned you about the CRA’s leadership. And their assistant treasurer just got jack-slammed by the FPPC for willful negligence. I wonder what she has done to the CRA’s books in the meantime?

They covered up membership fraud and threw us out in order to try to close the lid on it. Wendy Albright is a close associate and lieutenant of the CRA’s Black Widow Alice Khosravy (whose name you see on every letter, email, blog post and social media function of CRA now).

The Saddleback RA had its’ own $12,000 debacle

And now, their assistant treasurer gets the FPPC death penalty of $5000 per violation for refusing to return letters or phone calls from the LA County Registrar and the FPPC.

Unfortunately for Wendy, they were able to prove their case and the documentation in the 94-page document linked here is legion. It lists dates of contact and types of contact and the entire process leading to the $10,000 fine.

Good things happen to good people.

Perhaps Wendy can get the Pol-Pot Bellied CRA Information Minister to plead her case as he is a government election law lawyer. Whoops, that’s right, Wendy Albright hates Thomas N Hudson. #epicfail.

Reports have come in from around the state that several CRA units have collapsed, yet the CRA is still showing them as active. The organization is overrun with fraud and Wendy Albright is in the middle of all of it.

Get some marshmallows people, there is a nice bonfire burning just waiting for you.

There is a reason why Baghdad Bob was so popular in the USA. While the M-1 Tanks were rolling on Baghdad and the bombs were exploding – he was there assuring the world that Iraq was destroying the American pigs.

Whoops. Three months later he was in prison garb. I think Americans could understand his insanity way too well.

Baghdad Bob protege the Pol-Pot bellied CRA Information Minister Thomas N Hudson was in rare form Tuesday Night (2/2/2016). The current Placer RA, which has no more than 25 real members now, held a meeting for local electeds and AD06 candidates.

Several attended including PCWA Member Robert Dugan, Roseville Councilmember Bonnie Gore, Rocklin Councilmember Greg Janda (all incumbents) and Candidate Tracy Mendonsa who has long since been public about his run for Roseville Council.

Of the AD06 Candidates – Kevin Kiley was ostensibly discharging his duties as a deputy of Kamala Harris and Cristi Nelson, the elitist country club liberal was also not present, consistent with her pattern of selectively choosing events she deems worthy of her presence. Marginal candidates Mikaluco and Hydrick were not either.

This sets the stage for the Pol-Pot bellied CRA Information Minister to do what he does best – screw up by the numbers.

First, after the AD06 candidates spoke, there was a motion to appoint delegates for the local CRA endorsing convention. Kevin Hanley, in his usual condescending voice made an objection to the Placer RA having delegates who are already supporting candidates – thus making a 5 minute process take 20-30 minutes. In the process, several people in attendance (amongst the roughly 15 actual non candidates present) got exasperated. These would include a community leader in Rocklin and retired State Senator Tim Leslie.

Kevin Hanley obviously is as oblivious to reality as the Pol-Pot Bellied CRA Information Minister. Bill Halldin has been around the Placer RA for about 10 years and thus, the remaining club members all support and like him.

It also appears that Hanley has not drawn the connection as to why he had to carpet-bag in to AD06 in order to run for Assembly, when he could have run for AD05 a couple years ago. The knock on Hanley then was that he did not want to run a tough race, so then he has waited instead for this primary with 7 candidates in it??? At that, he has raised a pathetic $23,000 despite his years of working in Sacramento. A second knock on Hanley is that he alienated his fellow Auburn council-members and many in city government with his condescending arrogance.

The Carpet-Bagging Hanley’s only significant support is Congressman McClintock who has never lived in his own Congressional District, oh the irony.

Perhaps the donors in Sacramento know what many in Auburn do? Maybe that is the real reason why Mr. Hanley did not run for AD05 in 2012?

Later – the handful of locals that showed up spoke and a motion was made to endorse them. Undaunted, and seeing an opportunity to both be right once again and important, the pol-pot bellied CRA information minister Thomas N Hudson arose to enlighten everyone with his legal mind.

He explained that November was a long time away and that several of the candidates (3 of which were incumbents) may not file! Apparently enough of those present bought the argument and the motion to endorse failed as a result, or perhaps they were worn out after a hour of filibustering. These sorts of political blunders happen when a group eschews adult supervision.

Thomas N Hudson did what he does best, placed being right ahead of relationships and political reality. I do believe that Mr. Hudson had more motives for doing what he did than what he said, but as a classic Narcissist he is incapable of seeing that his behavior was blatantly transparent and politically destructive.

What else would you expect from someone who leads a board of Narcissists, Nerds and even a Sociopath and a wet alcoholic. This is the CRA today…

Kevin Hanley apparently was also working his magic in El Dorado County as well. At a CRA meeting there – this man who worked in the capitol for years raised his hand in affirmation for the state of Jefferson when asked if he would sponsor a bill in the legislature to create SOJ. While I am personally ambivalent to that issue, Hanley of all people should understand that stance is extremely unpopular within the crowd that he once called home and who he is likely trying in vain to get support from.

I also find it odd as current and former members of that El Dorado RA club have told me it has no more than 20 real members tops. Is it worth it? What kind of traction do you get with poorly thought out decisions from the stump?

This is the Kevin Hanley train-wreck, pandering to audiences he thinks he can get the support of and alienating people he thinks may support others.

There is a neat caveat: Hanley because he is as disconnected from AD06 as Kiley and Nelson are, is not aware of the purchased Ted Gaines endorsement. A consequence of said purchase by Cristi Nelson is that the Gaines drones on the El Dorado Central Committee are reputedly in the bag for Nelson. The moral to this story? There was nothing there for Mr. Hanley and he had a connection to AD06 and not just a carpet-bag, he’d have known this.

If Mr. Hanley is unable to understand that concept – perhaps he should call Suzanne Jones (who was also present at both meetings) and ask her about Beth Gaines soliciting a $3000 check from Jones for her endorsement. (ostensibly said check was to have been a donation to her then BofE fundraiser, which should not be confused with her upcoming State Senate fundraiser that Gaines is hosting whilst declared for El Do Supervisor in 2016.)

Also in the Placer RA meeting, Hudson went on the extol the upcoming State CRA Convention in Orange County as being something special. George and I planned that convention before our ouster from the CRA and had set the prices, which have all been increased dramatically. The reason Hudson gave was that the hotel raised the prices  In classic face-saving narcissism Hudson only told part of the truth, the prices have gone up because the CRA is not meeting their minimums required by the hotel. That was the only way they could have changed per the signed contract we negotiated. This is the CRA train-wreck.

If anyone wonders why the CRA is dead and why the GOP is losing market share, just re-read this post a couple times and make the connections.

CRA UPDATE: Arranging the AD68 Deck Chairs? Wait – is the OC Endorsing Convention Being Hosted Along With the CRA Convention?

Oh no, not Harry Sidhu. He is a RINO, we can’t have him. (Why he is a RINO is beyond me, but who cares…)

Oh no, not Stephen Choi, the tax raising Council-Member from Irvine.

Oh no – not DUI Deborah Pauly.

No, no, no – the CRA can not endorse any of them was the decree from Boss Hog, via a series of phone calls from his Dana Point Law Office. Boss Hog is now the #2 material of the CRA.

Whilst Sir-Round was sitting on his throne in Elverta, Boss Hog was hard at work trying to arrange the deck chairs in the southern fiefdom. It is hard work attempting to keep the dwindling population of serfs happy after the Northern Cossacks were run out of town.

Could it be that Sir-Round is soliciting more tribute? Might people have to once again ring the toll booth at the doorway of the CRA to again receive the once-coveted signet?

The Assembly District 68 race is a hot ticket in the southern fiefdom and may well be the last real drama until several districts are forced open in 2024. Sir-Round and Boss Hog – two members of the CRA’s 900 (and soon to be 3 for a half-ton club) have to struggle to keep the CRA relevant again.

Which leads us to the next irony – when Sir-Round was the #2 material of the CRA he opposed combining the CRA’s endorsing conventions with the state convention. Boss Hog – who was in a self-imposed exile in Dana Point cried foul about the CRA’s attempts to gain sponsorships and the combining of the conventions.

It appears that the dwindling population of serfs and the ever-expanding population of lower nobility within CRA is unable to sustain such lavish affairs. What, with the price of admission going up dramatically and the sudden reversal of policy on the local endorsing conventions – it appears that Sir-Round is the duke of the Kingdom of Id.

In addition to the sudden combination of the Orange County endorsing convention with the state convention – there is a wrinkle in AD68 – former CRA VP Alexia Deligianni has also thrown her hat in to the ring.

Ms. Deligianni has been friends with Boss Hog for a long time. It would appear that the orders will be handed down to the serfs to endorse Ms. Deligianni.

Whether tribute is paid to the crown or not, it looks like the toll booth has been reset at the front door of the Kingdom of Id. Would-be travelers beware.
