It's Time for Some Arcadia Election Losers to Take a Nap

This has been going on for just a little too long. Arcadia's City Council election happened over six weeks ago, and still some people can't seem to deal with the fact that Bob Harbicht lost the April 10 election to Tom Beck.

I mean, guys, this was just a relatively small town City Council election. What's the big deal? Certainly you can somehow put your disappointment behind you and rejoin the human race in a civil and forthright way. Trust me, you're not the first people to have candidates that didn't win a political race. But you are now rapidly becoming some of the worst election sore losers Arcadia has ever had the displeasure of seeing.

Here is what I think this is really all about.


Yes, Bob Harbicht lost. Yet somehow the sun still comes up in the morning.

The award for Sore Loser for the Month of May has got to go to Mark Hong. This guy has literally gone over the edge and straight into the Crybaby Hall of Fame with his current rather frightening obsession with relatively recently re-elected Arcadia City Councilman Tom Beck. To the point where Mark has now posted all of his personal emails with the guy.

You see, apparently the highly complex Mark once upon a time liked Tom, but that changed. These emails are from when his man crush was fresh and love was new.

Here is Mr. Hong's latest on the otherwise anonymously published Voice of Arcadia.


It appears that questioning some of the lurid and misleading claims he's made on a Facebook page constitutes being attacked in Mark's rather troubled world.

The place where Mark exposes his man crush e-mails is on a Google Drive site. They are of poor quality visually, otherwise I'd post them all here. But the presentation looks like this:


As an example of just how crude an effort this actually is, here is a screen shot of one of the emails reproduced on the heartbroken Mr. Hong's crush site.


Virtually unreadable, right? And I am not just talking about the blacked out parts.

Either somebody doesn't really want you to read these emails because they in no way back up his bizarre claims, or he just needs a good nap.

Beck won, Harbicht lost. You don't see any of these kinds of crybaby antics over the results of the 5th District election. It is time for some people to get over the results of the 2nd District vote as well.

  1. Hope it's just disappointment and not hate. OK Mr. Hong, it's over, get with the program before you loose your station.

    1. It could be that Mark Hong and his wife Helen Wu are Sho Tay supporters from the very beginning, and the "Meet n Greet" in their house could be a trap set up deliberately for Beck & Platt.

      Remember Beck & Platt did not want to go to the "Meet the Candidates" event at the library since it felt like a trap.

    2. If a person is lying about a few things, chances are very good they are lying about a lot of things. Nothing Hong says is believable. Arcadia needs moderate and sensible leaders, not irrational bomb throwers.

    5. 12:04 PM, we know you belong to the group of Sho Tay/Harbcht/Chandler & supporters.

      Tom Beck won despite of all the smear campaigns against him. He has demonstrated excellent leadership and intelligence as a Councilman and former Mayor. More importantly, he defends long-term Arcadia residents' property rights against investors/developers.

      Mark Hong is the kind of person only lying Sho Tay loves to befriend with.

    7. Verified by a neighbor: young children indoctrinated by the Sho cult are told to "shun other children whose parents do not support or vote for Sho's candidates ". In this instance I think support means OBEY under threat that their children will be rejected & hurt socially. Fear and Mind Control. It becomes obvious who is doing the bullying here. Not a rumor..... this was
      discreetly shared by a threatened Mother who felt she had to obey & conform protect her children .
      Unbelievable for me to learn that this is true & not an isolated . Where are the fearless Tiger Moms we hear about ?

  14. It’s been near 45 days, did the FPPC complete the Tay investigation? If not, will the CC defer the Arcadia mayoral vote further ? Usually when you defer something, your brain kicks in and you defer it long enough to be necessary. In this case Amundsen arbitrarily chose 45 days having ZERO clue if that would be sufficient for the investigation to conclude. And the dude runs a business.

On June 5 in CC expect these disrupters to use consistent vocal disorder whenever a comment is made by speaker or Council . They expect relentless pressure on the Mayor will install Sho as Mayor. Parliamentary procedure was never meant to allow a corrupt leader to represent our city.

    2. A loud mob undermining order in a City Council Meeting is NOT the "Power of the People".
      Hissing, booing, the overworked "racist" whispers are mob undermining of our Democratic
      Process. Your redistricting lawsuit brings dishonor to the fallen soldiers who gave their
      lives to allow freedom of the vote. This community must demand a recall vote of redistricting.

    3. I wonder if those who hiss and boo (or clap) at the June 5th meeting will be tossed out of the meeting. The mayor states to be respectful - and not to be disruptive, but folks break the rules anyways. Very disrespectful! Really annoying! Maybe the police chief will toss them out, as he really should. No more waving hands in the air.

    4. Nothing wrong to hissing to the racists, who were violating the laws in public place.

    5. You know, I'd worry about what you think, but obviously that would be a waste of time.

    6. 2:36, Everything is wrong with hissing and booing during a city business meeting. If you listened to the mayor’s words prior to public comments, you would have heard to be respectful. Those hissing, booing and clapping were violating the rules of the meeting. Bottom line, it was extremely rude - acting undisciplined!

      I admire how you try to put a spin on everything.

      I had never heard of racist words, or people saying others were racist, until two years ago, when Sho Tay was involved in dirty campaigning to support Harbicht. Sho Tay, and those above and below who are supporting him, started the whole division in Arcadia. So just stop for the good of Arcadia. If you really cared about unity and healing in Arcadia, please stop the comments about race. Rise above.

  16. Seems to me Mark Hong writes pretty clearly and logically, probably the next best to the moderator here. Not seeing how he is lying about what he experienced. His name didn’t show up in the district 2 voter list if you will check with Tom Beck. Stella Gu’s voting record in District 5 can also be verified with D5 candidates such as Joyce Platt or Jolly Wu, not that hard. By the way, what do we say about all the speakers claiming Roger Chandler stole Joyce Platt’s election at the April 24 council meeting and ranting about the voter fraud that’s going nowhere so far? Are they crybabies too? If so it looks like crybabies are everywhere in Arcadia accross age groups and political stances. Pot calling the kettle black? Funny indeed. Let’s not embarrass ourselves.

  23. STRAIGHT TALK:
    Everyone keeps asking where the rational people are. Why aren’t they speaking up? I’m going to tell you why…. WE ARE AFRAID!

    We are afraid of being bullied. We are afraid of community leaders coming after our kids. We are afraid of Kin Hui destroying our careers.

    We are afraid that OUR face will be the next meme shared maliciously on Facebook.

    We are afraid but... it doesn’t mean we are not watching, listening and whispering.

    Thankfully, the Tattler and Facebook have revealed the people we need to be leery of; who to keep at a safe distance and never engage in debate or intelligent conversation with.

    You might think we are cowards for not getting more involved but we have a lot on the line. This community is very connected through service organizations, schools, sports, local clubs and activities.

    We stay silent even though we are the nuts and bolts of this community. We are the good citizens, parents, teachers, neighborhood watch people, small business owners, volunteers, coaches, leaders.

    We’re all races, religions and political parties. We value content of character and integrity in our leaders. We’re the good guys. But… we are afraid to get involved. What does that say about the current landscape of our community?

    We are the people who say “hello” to each other on the side walk.

    We are the people who embrace and enjoy the diversity in Arcadia and throughout Los Angeles.

    We are the people who want peace, a safe community and friendly relationships with our neighbors. We want to see our leaders getting along, working together and solving the problems that impact our daily local lives.

    Yep... we’re the people who are going to have your back in a tsunami and give you mouth-to-mouth no matter how mean and malicious you have been or who you voted for.

    Yet, we are the people who are VERY afraid to join the current conversation, show up and help solve the problem, because…… we are afraid of being bullied. So, what does that say about the state of our community?

    Not sure what the solution is but it's as bewildering as Laurel and Yanny.

    Thanks Tattler for letting me share some words anonymously because I'm afraid of being bullied.

    You have done great contribution to schools and community, we have seen that, we have been there too. We have been friends except the political world.

    You understand the historical preservation ordinance, you are against it, but you darenot to speak out. You plugged many signs to most of your neighbors without telling them the truth in your heart, then ended up many voters didnot vote to any candidates. You're always afraid of something, nobody knows what exactly.

    Please do what you believe it is right all the time, otherwise,I don't believe you can contribute well when we really need your help.

    Don't take comments personally, no matter what your ideas are. It is for the community.

    I wish you understand and come out to express it, we can communicate, no fear should be there any time.

  26. With 94 likes and 109 followers, Voice of Arcadia posted on Wednesday @ 10:36pm a share post from Mark Hong’s Tuesday @ 5:35pm post.

    At the moment, until it gets removed by Andy Chen or Sho Tay or Bob, the VOA 10:36pm post is still there.

    However, two comments made to that post 2 days ago have been removed. Sho Tay made a comment and so did Mark Hong. These are the two comments that have been removed:

    Sho Tay posted this comment: if they can prove that I made a video teach non-citizen how to vote then I will resign...but only if Mr. Tom Beck agrees to resign if they cannot prove the video exists

    Mark Hong then replied to Sho Tay’s comment:
    Actions speak volumes

    Interesting...why did VOA delete these two comments?

    Not to fear, screenshots speak volumes!

    If Sho Tay wants to be the unifier of Arcadia, then why is he commenting on this crazy VOA Facebook page?

    It’s a shame too that VOA wrote disturbing comments shaming Joyce Platt on this thread post.

    Why did Sho Tay write that article about Tom Beck on Arcadia’s Best and say that Terry Miller wrote it, but then Sho was caught in a lie after lie after Terry Miller called him out on it?

    How can he represent ALL the people in Arcadia fairly? He’s divided the city. It’s devastating really. Does he have an honest bone in his body? Rhetorical question.
