According to the article I've cited above, there were several reasons given for Susan's rather hurried departure. One of them being "resume pumping."
"Henderson states that she holds a bachelor's degree in business administration from Ohio State University, but a spokeswoman said Ohio State had never granted a degree to Harriet Susan Henderson or Harriet Poole, Henderson's maiden name ... Henderson's resume also says that she holds an 'MBA/JD' from the University of California, without specifying a campus ... Spokesmen at UC-Berkeley, UCLA and UC-Davis, the three UC campuses that have both law and business schools, said no such degrees had been issued to H. Susan Henderson or Harriet Poole."
This was all revealed in May of 1995. Now let's move forward to January of 2009. What I will be quoting from here is a communique from an organization called the Democratic Club of Pasadena Foothills. Apparently they are hosting a cable access talk show dealing with national and international affairs, with Ms. Henderson as emcee.
"At Your Doorstep" Cable Show Host: Susan Henderson. (Former Executive Director of the California Democratic Party under then chairman Bill Press.) Susan also publishes the Mountain View Times (sic?) a weekly publication serving Sierra Madre and Pasadena. Susan is a Berkeley grad who brings an extraordinary backround in politics to this component ..."
You really do have to feel sorry for them.
