With these sharper copies of the emails between Hong and Beck you will be able to see that Hong did not "catch" Beck in a lie. Quite the opposite. Hong tries repeatedly to put words in Beck's mouth, but Beck respectfully and politely corrects him. Beck makes it crystal clear that he is for all citizens registering to vote and exercising that democratic privilege bestowed upon all the citizens of the United States.
Hong tries to accuse Beck of wanting only "the right Chinese" voting, but Beck never refers to that term and questions Hong's use of it. Beck agreed to meet with Hong and the City Manager at City Hall, but as everyone can see from the email that Hong somehow left out of his collection, Beck cancelled the meeting after Hong sent him over an agenda and Beck saw no reason to meet as they were destined to disagree.
In Hong's Facebook post, he clarifies that it was Joyce Platt who made the comment about the video. Hong babbles endlessly about negative mailers that Beck failed to acknowledge, but when the meeting took place between Hong and Beck, the anti-Chandler mailers had not yet been sent out. How would Beck have known about the Chandler Monopoly mailer before it was mailed? The Inside Arcadia mailer came out later in March.
These mailers only went to District 5 residents. Hong is a District 2 resident. Hong didn't know about them either and you can tell from the email exchange there was no mention of the negative Chandler mailers. And no, there were no negative Harbicht mailers, ever. And when Bob the Bulldozer yard signs went up, Beck went around and pulled them up out of people's yards after checking with the homeowners who had no idea where the signs had come from.
The emails and Facebook post just show Hong is mad about Historic Preservation and he was looking for a reason to hate Beck. Beck was never dishonest. He was merely trying to be kind to someone who did not deserve that favor.
So to the Beck haters that keep on hating in the absence of any evidence of him lying, please provide some real proof of the aforementioned offenses made by Beck. I will gladly publish it here.
And somebody posted a comment the other day that Stella Gu lives and voted in District 5. My sources checked the voter lists and no one named Stella Gu voted in District 5. Is she using an alias? Maybe we need to check ID's at the door.
If Stella wants to be respected as a voter of District 5, maybe she should use the name in her emails that she uses for voting. And she should use a name of someone who has an address in District 5. Still no address associated with anyone by the name of Stella Gu in District 5.
Before spreading more lies, check yourself before you wreck yourself.
Here's the emails. Examine them for yourself.
Interesting comment from yesterday
Mod: I thought I should highlight this one.
