Mountain Views News Publisher H. Susan Henderson Stands Tall For Voting Naked

-
H. Susan Henderson dedicates a lot of space in this weekend's edition of the Looney Views News to this blog. Sadly for her, Susan's handpicked candidate for Sierra Madre's City Council, a scant two year resident of this town named Noah Green, had a run-in with an unfortunate political reality this week. The lesson this not that young attorney hopefully learned is if you are going to run for political office, you need to clean up your social media sites. Naked pictures of yourself on a publicly visible forum, which is what Facebook and Twitter are, is more than fair game. Just ask Anthony Weiner, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, or Larry "Senator Widestance" Craig.

Personally, I don't care what this guy does with his life, or how he gets his kicks. But if you are going to post pictures on Facebook of yourself stripping, getting drunk, sexually fondling a bathing suit store mannequin, posing suggestively with a hot dog, or perched nude in a see-through hammock, all while you are also running for an important elective office in my town, then I will happily post those pictures here. I don't care who you are. It is legitimate news, and the voters have a right to know about who they might be voting for.

And yes, you do have a right to know everything about the candidates, no matter what H. Susan Henderson might say. You also have a right to know all about the publisher of this City's adjudicated newspaper, which you can do by clicking here. Susan has quite a vivid past, and she is extremely sensitive about who knows it.

Besides, just tune into any cable news station, pick up any newspaper, or surf news sites on the Internet. The quirks and foibles of foolish politicians is manna from heaven for newspaper publishers and TV news executives looking for ways to drive audience traffic to their efforts.

And believe me, it works. Tuesday's Tattler post (link), the one that broke the news of Noah's Facebook Follies, is the most viewed we have ever posted here. It has been checked out by over 10,000 people, and continues to attract viewers by the carload. These pictures have now exceeded the world famous Wistaria Vine as Sierra Madre's preeminent tourist attraction.

As any blogger will tell you, traffic is what moves the needle. When you give the people what they want, they will visit your site to see it. And this week it was Noah Green's pictures they wanted to see. We were happy to oblige.

If you go to the Pasadena Star News website you will be able to read their article about the Noah Green situation ("Revealing photos of Sierra Madre City Council candidate surface" - link). And again the result was huge amounts of web traffic. As of this typing it remains one of the week's Top 5 Most Read articles on the Pasadena Star News website, five days after publication. People really do want to know all about Naughty Noah.

All that said, leaving pictures such as that live on a Facebook site was hardly a brilliant move on Noah's part. As Frank Girardot, Editor of the Pasadena Star News, tweeted out to his paper's many readers:

Frank Girardot ‏@FrankGirardot  Feb 19 (link): Probably not a good idea to post revealing selfies on Facebook then run for office. Just sayin': http://fb.me/6CSWjKLzw 

Did Susan Henderson Credit The Tattler With Knocking Josh Moran Out of the City Council Race? Gosh, I Sure Hope So ...

-
There is a revelation in this weekend's MVN article that I take some particular pride in. Here is how H. Susan Carter-Poole-Henderson puts it:

Last year, a doctored photo of Former Mayor Josh Moran at a city event with Bob Matheson appeared on Crawford's blog along with a rant against Moran and suddenly during the time that decisions were being made to run for council, that photo complete with vile remarks about Moran's character surfaced around town. The original photo was was taken prior to Moran or the public's knowledge of the criminal activities of Matheson. Shortly after the mailings, Moran announced he would not seek re-election.

Susan seems confused here. Was the photo doctored as she says, or was it that "original photo taken prior to … etc?" The supposedly doctored photo was taken by a local photographer associated with the Beacon Media family of newspapers.

I have seen the mailer Susan discusses here, and it is pretty bad. It was forwarded to me by a concerned Terry Miller, Editor at the Sierra Madre Weekly. It also contained attacks on several other people, some of whom are close personal friends of mine. Obviously I had nothing to do with it, nor would I do anything like that, and Susan knows this. Susan Henderson is simply lying, as is her usual practice.

The issue for me was never Josh Moran's friendship with Bob Matheson. It was his factually erroneous denial of ever having known the fellow, made to the Star News after word of Matheson's arrest in Canada for possession of a laptop filled with child pornography had emerged.

My post about this story is here (link). Most of it is based on an article titled "Porn Convict Has Sierra Madre Political Ties," which ran in the Pasadena Star News (link). Here is a brief excerpt from the Star News article:

Other politicians Thursday sought to distance themselves from Matheson. Although he was supported by Matheson and attended several functions, including one at Matheson's home, Councilman Josh Moran said the longtime resident didn't stand out.

"I didn't know him at all," Moran said. "He was just another face in the crowd."

As Richard Nixon once allegedly put it, "It is not the crime, it's the cover-up." Besides, honesty really is the best policy. Especially when there are photos floating around that clearly contradict your foolish statements to a daily newspaper. Pictures tell people a lot, and some still do.

The City Council will be better off without Josh Moran.

Susan Henderson Tells A Really Crazy Lie

As ridiculous as all of Susan's nonsense above might sound, the looniest part of her extended bray is that she accuses both myself and a Councilmember of trying to organize an angry torch bearing mob and then setting some poor guy's house on fire. She falsely bases this on an email I sent to this Councilmember. Most e-mails you send to Citycouncilmembers are public property, in case you have wondered, and can be obtained from City Hall if they like you.

This e-mail was about one of the wackier attempts to post a comment on this blog, in this case a nasty bit written by an obviously deranged individual. It is what I referred to in that e-mail as a "troll post." It is something that was never cleared, and therefore did not appear on this blog.

I screen out a lot of that stuff. As you might guess, I get some pretty wild comments from people, and sometimes I send e-mails of the ones I reject to friends so that we can laugh about them.

But to use that as the basis for accusing an elected official, or Sierra Madre's finest and most effective blogger, of doing something illegal to somebody else? Sheer insanity, and quite possibly libelous.

  13. From the San Francisco Chronicle website:

    "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 "M.B.A. / J.D." 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."

    Huh. She lost the #2 Democratic party job in California because she lied on her resume.'

    Replies
    1. But wait, there's more!

      "As party executive director, Henderson sat in on top-level strategy meetings and sensitive discussions about the Democrats' plans for winning California for President Clinton in 1996.

      In his written statement, Press complained that the anonymous letter about Henderson was "disgusting character assassination," but gave no details about why he had concluded that she had spent party funds properly.

      Party credit-card records show that in a three-month period in 1995 she ran up $12,000 in charges, including $74 at a Victoria's Secret lingerie shop in Washington, D.C., $220 at a golf course in Palm Springs, $137 at a Los Angeles beauty-supply outlet and $26 at a laundry."

      Maybe she wore the lingerie for Bill Clinton?

    we had this with Joe Mosca, his photos for the Council he borrowed a dog so he'd look political and we have Harabedian who photoshopped out police patches in clear violation of campagin laws and dismissed us "townies" as subservant to his agenda

    If Noah wants to do the Dance with No Pants in public, I don't really care. But when he shows open contempt for the town, while asking us to vote for him, I do care. Because it leads me to think he doesn't have the good judgement to make important decisions that affect the whole community. Frankly, I don't want to vote for a politician who gropes a mannequin: I'd feel like the boob. Besides, if he gets elected, at some point he'll be the Mayor, making him Sierra Madre's Commando-in-Chief. Ick.

We need council members who can get us out of this mess. We need council members who have experience of working with employees and getting the work done.

  30. Noah's so-called paid advertisement in the Mt View News makes me laugh

    damage and spin control

    he's proud of firing people and helping people declare bankruptcy

    he said he works long hours but I guess he will have all the free time in the world to be a Councilmember, who does he work for, SoCal Edison?

    Noah, my common sense tells me that you aren't right for the city.

    You moved into to town a couple years ago, joined the "in" organizations, aligned yourself with those that caused major problems in the city, aligned yourself with Councilmembers who flat out lied to us and then you post juvenile pictures of yourself and insult residents as "townies" when you were partying at the Buc.

    If you lived here a little longer, touting that you frequent the Buc is not something you want to share.

    What is so wrong with our city that after two scant years, we need YOU to jump into politics and shaping our future, is the lawyer in you?

    In your term on the Chamber, what exactly have you done?

    The Creative Arts Group...seriously, that's a big deal to you as why you should be a Councilmember?

    Show me the grunt work you have done in the city. Or is all show and splash?

    The lack of common sense you have shown by not cleaning up your social media is embarrassing and then hiding behind your wife as it's her fault that it's public because she tagged you, that just proves to me that she is just as condesending as you are to us "townies" - EVERYBODY knows that when you tag a photo, it shows up on another profile, it was tagged to show how cool you were and it's frustrating to us "townies" that you can be so childish as an adult, seriously, posting party pictures, what a moronic thing to do.

    My judgement is that you haven't lived here long enough to be elected.

    My judgement is that you haven't shown the common sense to be elected.

    My opinion is that we don't need any more lawyers on the Council.

    And if your endorsements are those that want to build out the city, no thanks,it's obvious you are clueless about the city history and if you are such a fan of history, why not spend a little time getting the history of the city and not just from those blowing smoke up your rear end?

    6. Last time I checked the Constitution and the basic tenets it implies is, you have the right to live where you choose in this country and there is no litmus test or checklist any city or town has any person fill out if they want to run for political office, these type of requirements are yours and yours alone based solely on your supposed set of requirements or political ideoligies. Mr. Green has every right granted to him under our Constitution to live here and run for office, if his actions, either professional or as a private citizen do not meet your standards then you have every right to organize and not vote for him. Attitudes like the one I see put forth on this blog are the very essence of what is wrong with our political environment, close mindedness and localized jingoism. Who I vote for, and the reasons I do are no ones business but my own, John, I find some of the comments YOU let through quite disturbing and are in effect a reflection on your character, seeing as this is a moderated blog, by you, in all my 74 years I have never witnessed such bad behavior by such well meaning people.

    7. Well then, I guess you don't need to read this blog. Please see the First Amendment.

    8. 1:26, no one is saying that Green doesn't have the right to run - the point is that he is not fit to be on the council. He can run all he likes, and take nude pictures all he likes, and post them wherever he likes. Well, maybe there's a requirement not to post them close to schools, but other than that, he's free to do what he wants. He's just not mature enough to be making business decisions for the city.

      Delete
    9. I would think that the Constitution would allow people to take into account that Noah has only lived here for two years, and not vote for him. He lacks the experience to sit on the City Council. And please, try and post here without all the name-calling and pomposity, 1:26. It's a blog. If you don't like what happens here, then please go someplace else. Nobody likes bores.

  32. I'm voting for Denise Delmar and Rachelle Arizmundi and NO on the UUT

    I'm not casting a 3rd vote so if Goss gets the seat, hopefully he only gets a small vote count cause I don't think he has any business making decisions for the city

    And Green, he's a outcast pariah as far as I'm concerned.

    I wish there was a write in candidate that could be put forth.

    Regardless, we are going to elect someone who doesn't belong on the Council and we need a majority so the city can be managed with integrity instead of pandering and self serving candidates/.

  33. Noah Green is the candidate of the Chamber of Commerce. Nancy, Susan, Judy Webb-Martin, Carol Canterbury, all of Noah's supporters are BIG supporters of the Chamber of Commerce. This is about replacing Sierra Madre's City Council with the Chamber of Commerce. Mostly it's about replacing hard working, intelligent folks who know what's best for a small village of tax payers and property owners with DIRTS.

  39. I just read Green's paid ad, I was confused by his plea to judge those running for office on their policy choices.

  40. Ok, I, too,have just read Noah's "paid political ad" in the MVN. I agree, it's very sad for so many reasons. First, Noah entitles his missive "character" and he seems to assume that everyone will think he is speaking about "good" character, when in fact, there is such a thing as "bad" or "poor" character. And then, as already noted in one of these posts, Noah seems to believe that good character is determined by how many hours one works. Really? (I'm certain the recently indicted Calderon brothers spent a lot of time working too.) I believe the assessment of one's character is based on how well one practices the Cardinal Virtues: Prudence, Temperance, Justice (the real definition of the word, not social justice), and Fortitude. Good character has also been defined as "what one does when no one is looking." Based on these long standing and proven definitions of character, I wonder how Noah would rate himself? Noah seems to be someone who reads, so I would like to recommend two books for him: the classic "Nicomachean Ethics" by Aristotle, and "The Good Life" by Peter Gomes. I would hope he would find them of value and that they may help him understand that his definition of "character" isn't even in the ballpark.

    1. We all know that Rachelle has a political consultant helping her with her campaign. It is her right and privilege to do this. To have a veiled attack on her is beyond the pale. Rachelle has more character in her little finger than Green has in his whole body. This attack is reminiscent of the attack on MaryAnn when her opponents claimed she was "uncivil" and they themselves conducted a "civility" campaign. Look what happened there. Nancy Walsh proved to be the most uncivil person on our council ever recorded.

  42. Noah's campaign signs are MISSPELLED with the WRONG COMMITTEE name and WRONG Fair Political Practices Commission ID #

    The signs say "PAID FOR BY THE CAMPAIN (sic) FOR NOAH GREEN ID # 136352"

    Noah's real committee name is "GREEN FOR SIERRA MADRE CITY COUNCIL 2014" with an FPPC # of 1363523.

  45. In his "paid political advertisement" in the Mountain Views News, Noah Green uses yet another erroneous committee name,,"The Committee to Elect Noah Green"

    He says in the ad that he spends his time drafting legal documents.

    I hope for Noah's clients' sake he takes more care with those documents than he does with his own yard sign and advertisements.

  46. Yep. Noah spells it "Campain".on his yard signs.

    Cam-Pain is a mission in the video game Grand Theft Auto where the player kills campaign workers.

    Let's hope Noah isn't making a Freudian slip...but given his pics there is something possibly very angry and hostile inside Noah's head and he self-medicates with alcohol.

  49. A campaign committee that spends more than $1,000 is required to register with the California Secretary of State and they are assigned an ID number.

    Under California’s Political Reform Act, committees must put “paid for by” disclaimers on campaign advertising, including campaign mailers, radio and television ads, telephone robocalls, and electronic media ads.

    A “disclaimer” is the portion of a political message that identifies the person or entity who paid
    for or authorized the communication. “Paid for by committee name” is the basic disclaimer
    required by the Act on most campaign communications sent by a committee.

    This "paid for by" disclaimer is required to be on all mass mailings.

    A campaign is not required to but the disclaimer on yard signs although most campaigns do.

    Only the Committee name itself is required to be disclosed, not the ID number. Most campaigns include the ID # because some people expect to see it.

    So Noah was not required to put a "paid for by" disclaimer on these signs. He did it voluntarily as campaigns often do.

    The point is in this voluntary "paid for by" disclosure he:

    1) used the name of a nonexistent committee on his yard signs
    2) misspelled the word "campaign" as "campain"
    3) got his ID number wrong.
    4) used the name of yet another nonexistent campaign committee on his Mountain Views News ad

    Although it is possible that the repeated use of nonexistent campaign committee names is a technical violation of California Fair Political Practices regulations, this is more a display of rank stupidity rather than lawbreaking.

    Sort of like having pictures of yourself swinging naked in a hammock up in the internet when you are running for office.
