Sometimes news comes your way that is just so out there and bizarre that you can't help but want to celebrate life in exuberant ways. Like by laughing out loud. That and thank the powers above that you are fortunate to be a blogger and have Arcadia's very own John Wuo to write home about. It just gets no better. This from The Arcadia Weekly (link):

Council Member John Wuo’s image is highly visible on multiple websites in a wide range of languages that urge consumers worldwide to invest in Gemcoin, a digital or “cryptocurrency” that has emerged amid the trend that began with Bitcoin’s introduction in 2009. Gemcoin’s numerous websites also contain endorsements of the investment product that are attributed to Wuo, who is prominently billed as the mayor of Arcadia. Several Gemcoin webpages include hyperlinks to his biography on the city’s website.
“The Mayor of Arcadia, John Wuo, confirmed the positive influence of Gem Coin on international virtual currency and the stability of the value of the ‘Gem Coin,'” according to several Gemcoin websites and a statement recounting a press conference last September in which Gemcoin founder Steve Chen unveiled the digital currency to the global investment market.
Wuo was first elected to the council in 2002 and completed his most recent stint as mayor in April.
In another Gemcoin marketing event, this time in March when the digital currency’s Arcadia-based parent company hosted investors from Singapore, a Gemcoin brochure posted online summarized the then-mayor’s remarks to the Singaporean group: “We help resident[s] to solve problems. USA is like other countries, with relationship it is easier to get things through. I can help you.”
Wuo, who has been in China for the last two weeks, denied making those flattering remarks about Gemcoin and said he intends to demand that the cryptocurrency’s marketing department excise his image and statements from the numerous promotional websites.
You may recall that we had the distinct pleasure of writing about three time Arcadia Mayor John Wuo several weeks back. The article was titled "Arcadia Councilmember John Wuo Plays The Race Card" (link), and featured the following citation, which we also lifted from The Arcadia Weekly, proud sister paper of the Sierra Madre Weekly.
Residents in Arcadia received a newsletter from ‘Save the Arcadia Highlands’ group earlier this week attacking some of the city councilmembers’ votes on certain issues with particular regard to the large homes being built in Arcadia. The newsletter’s tone was highly critical of several councilmembers and the financial controversy over a cancelled trip to China & Taiwan.
We contacted councilmembers for comment as well as City Manager, Dominic Lazzaretto. John Wuo was deeply concerned and said this via email:
“I am extremely upset, because it is all lies. For instance, we did not receive any money, so how can we return money back to them (China Trip)? Also accusing us (3 councils) breaking the law, in fact they are the one not following our City’s building and zoning code. Each project went through city’s appeal process, planning commission voted 5-0 and council voted 4-1 and 3-2 to approval these 2 projects.
"The whole articles are racist, and I am shocked and surprised that these are Arcadia’s residents.” Councilmember John Wuo.
You do know that anyone who opposes McMansion building in the Arcadia Highlands area must be racist because, well, John Wuo and the rather posh gents that hold his puppet strings say so. And who could be more victimized and oppressed over behind the Peacock Veil than multi-millionaire foreign real estate investors who wish to build 8,500 square foot mausoleums for the living with dunce cap minarets and enough bathrooms to service a baseball stadium filled with Miller Lite devotees?
But here is where things get even more excellent.

They have also published an article titled "Digging deeper into the USFIA GemCoin Ponzi scam," which you will want to read by clicking here. It will deepen your knowledge of Doozie Wuo-zie and his GemCoin woes.
There are a number of informed reader comments to be found on the BehindMLM.com site, but none more straight to the point than this one:
If you enjoy videos, you might want to check this out (click). Apparently John Wuo, who claims that he knows nothing about GemCoins, played a prominent role in this overblown GemCoin event. No news if Arcadia's new West Covina based public relations people were in on this one.
We will be more than pleased to follow up on John Wuo's excellent GemCoin adventures just as soon as more news comes our way.
