Default Shahade issue

It smells stunningly bad when a board member resigns after his sister
got a highly paid position with the USCF. Of course he was the reason
why she got the job.

Default Statement by Greg Shahade on his resignation

Statement by Greg Shahade on his resignation from the USCF Executive
Board


It is with regret that I find myself forced to resign from the
Executive Board. According to the USCF bylaws it is impossible for an
immediate family member of a EB member to have a paid position within
the USCF. In the midst of the Chess Life interviews and hiring decision

made by the EB (of which I wasn't a part of due to a conflict of
interest), it was decided that Dan Lucas would be the best choice for
editor, but that the USCF should also utilize the skills of my sister,
Jennifer Shahade, as a website content editor. Once it was made clear
to me that the USCF was prepared to consider her for a job, yet could
only do so if I resigned from the board, I felt there was no choice but

to do so.


Our website has been lacking for a long time and often has very
uninteresting news stories and fails to properly cover many of our
major events. I ran on a platform of improving Chess Life and the
website, and I believe that my sister is the perfect person to help
bring our website into the 21st century, and make it the top source for

American chess news. I feel that her having this position is more
important than my position on the Executive Board, and to make this
happen, I feel that my resignation is the best thing for the USCF.


It has been an eye opening experience being part of the USCF Executive
Board and I have high hopes for the future. The current Board has a
good rapport with one another and every one of them are very dedicated
to improving American Chess. I am also very impressed with the job that

Bill Goichberg is doing as President of the Board. When I first was
elected I was not so sure that he was the right person for the
Presidency but during my time on the board I feel that he is by far the

best candidate for the position and as long as he is the president I
have optimism that the USCF will make responsible and well thought out
decisions.

You get elected. You get your sister a good paying job without any web
experience. You resign. Everyone wins. This is why chess is ****.

Was this job ever posted to the general public?

Of course not. It's the good old buddy system. She also has zero
experience in this. What a ****!

Default Don Schultz gave Shahade a $75K a year position

Shutz gave her the job with no experience beside being a ****. How come
Parr and Innes are so quiet about this? The job was not posted to the
public. The USCF has very little money. Why give $75,000 a year to a
girl who has no professional experience? Oh, I forgot. She did write
the Chess **** book. Something is rotten somewhere.

Let her use the money to train with and become your next champion.

I will never play another rated game in this country.

The chances of her becoming a world champion are a lot less than me
winning the $250 million lottery. She's no more than a chess ****.

Why is this such a big deal to you? Why do you hate it when
other people succeed in chess? Why do you have it in for
Jennifer - what did she ever do to you? Even your amazon.com
review of "Chess Bitch" was a distasteful flame and shows
that you didn't even read the book:

"Ridiculous book - Very poor work, January 9, 2006
Reviewer: Gordon Ray (Pennsylvania) - See all my reviews
This book is utterly ridiculous. Shahade doesn't seem to know where to go with
this book. It has to be one of the most unorganized books. It totally lacks
focus. This isn't about history of women's chess. It's about the dirt of some
women players according to Shahade. The quality of the writing is extremely
poor. Most of her subjects are not so interesting. Oh, and what about the
dozen errors with chess facts? It seems that Shahade is clueless and was too
lazy to double check her stuff. If you like sex and gossip, buy this book.
If you like a good chess book, this is not the one. And no children under 15
should read this book. I was quite offended by this book. The title is also
in poor taste. Yes, I'm a USCF rated OTB chess player. "

History of women's chess? LOL, it wasn't meant to be a history of
women's chess! Anyway, I digress.

Good Luck,

- CF

Because she's a chess ****. She should not have been paid $75K a year
for having a nice **** and big tits.
