Default The $25 USCF Member

Here is a scandal that Susan Polgar keeps reporting on her blog, and
this time I agree with her.

At the USCF Delegates meeting in Dallas in August, an effort was made
to oust Paul Truong from the USCF Executive Board.

As a result, ringers were recruited to appear as state "delegates",
who would then vote to get rid of Truong.

In at least one case, the person recruited to be a delegate was both
not a chess player and not a USCF member.

Therefore, in order to use him as a delegate to oust Truong, an offer
was made to pay his USCF membership dues to make him a member and then
to make him a delegate from a state.

There is available a six-month membership which costs only $25. So,
for $25, this person was given a USCF membership so that he could vote
against Truong.

Just to make sure that he could not get into any trouble for doing
this, this person was allowed to join the USCF under a Fake Name.

The name was "Hero Smith". This was obviously a fake name, because no
American would take a name like that. Also, this person was Japanese
and the name in Japanese is spelled Hiro. No Japanese person would
spell it Hero.

Evidence that this person was offered a $25 membership just so that he
can vote against Truong has been posted in the form of an email on
Susan Polgar's websites. I have also confirmed the truth of this from
other sources.

I believe that the email on Susan's website was one of those she is
accused of stealing from Randy Hough's Yahoo Account during the 111
times she is accused of breaking into Hough's account.

Here is the USCF membership record of this Fake Named person "Hero
Smith".

As can be seen, he first joined the USCF on July 30, 2008, just a few
days before the delegates meeting. He was then made a delegate from
the State of California, even though he was only a $25 new member and
did not know how to play chess.

Then, a funny thing happened. Upon arriving at the meeting and
learning that the person he was there to vote against was Mr. Truong,
"Hero Smith" felt that, being Japanese himself, he had an obligation
to vote in favor of Mr. Truong, out of solidarity to a fellow-Asian.

Thus, one vote that was supposed to be against Mr. Truong became a
vote in his favor instead, and thus was a two-vote swing.

I am told that there was at least one other instance of this happening
at the same delegate's meeting.

This may explain why Mr. Truong was able to prevail, in spite of the
overwhelming evidence against him.

That you agree with her comprises prima facie evidence that she's lying.
What obviously happened in this case is that P and T conspired to recruit a
delegate to vote for T but in order to allay suspicions made it appear as if
the delegate was going to vote against T but then at a last minute had a
change of heart and voted for T. Hero in this case does not correspond to
Hiro in Jap, but rather to a hero sandwich, AKA a grinder, what is what T is
to P: her grinder, her sexual consort. The name is designed to be a slap
directly in the face of you Sam Sloan, whose sexual advances P claimed to
reject. Not to mention that the Japs hate Charlie, all those orientals hate
each other, thousands of years of internecine fighting's seen to that. I
can't believe you were duped by such an obvious scheme.

OK. I accept that. I know that the State of California does not exist
in USCF-land and only in the real world. I only used the term
"California" to make the situation understandable to the outside
world.

I do know that "Hero Smith" was named a delegate of some state and
that he voted in favor of the Trollgars. I saw him raise his hand and
vote. I saw his vote being counted.

Now, will you kindly find out and tell us what state he was purporting
to represent?

Get your facts straight, Sam (I know, I know, that's asking far
too much). Mr. Smith did not represent "the state of California";
there is no such in USCF. There's Northern Calif and Southern Calif. I
know he didn't represent the latter, and don't believe it was the
former either. As to your ruminations about alleged ethnic solidarity,
let me remind you that Japan occupied Vietnam from 1941 to 1945...
