BREAKING: Traitor Hadrian Micciche deals with Loving Hacker fallout while KBOO BURNS

Thanks to our Propaganda Ministry memo via our sooper sekrit channel(aka blog comments, soon to be joined by new contact email; see right), we've found leaked email from Hadrian Micciche posted by Our Glorious Leader at Indymedia:

http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2013/06/423799.shtml

Here, then, is a communication from the core of the corporatists:

Subject: The disintegration of the KBOO Board.

I'm a Board member of the KBOO Foundation. I invite you to attend the next KBOO Board meeting, where we will be discussing:

1. A Board member soliciting people to engage in illegal behavior.

2. A Board member who had no authorization to spend Foundations funds, yet did so, and wastefully.

3. A Board member who seeks to toss out all of the work done by consultants to KBOO, paid for by a foundation grant, which, if this is done, will put every granting organization on notice that KBOO will likely make poor use of any additional funding. So much for grants to help pay for items called for in the KBOO Strategic Plan, such as the Media Center. That's $35,000 wasted on consultants and how much wasted on an unrealizable Strategic Plan?

4. A report from the Finance Committee that the Board is neglecting its fiduciary responsibilities.

5. A report that KBOO is on track to lossing its broadcasting license for failure to have a Community Advisory Board, as the FCC and our By-laws require, and that this failure of KBOO to follow its By-laws has been reported to the state's Attorney Generals office.

Plus, you can witness the disruption of the Board's business by a small number of disaffected members, should that happen again, as it did at our last meeting. In addition, you may see people supposedly seeking to protect KBOO values again engage in name-calling, belittling, as well as a general failure by members to carry out their responsibility to let each other know when some are doing harm to another person or a group of people with such behavior, as well as the failure of the Board to ask such people to stop that behavior or leave, all in violation of the "KBOO philosophy.

The meeting is Monday, June 24th at 6pm (arrive early as the meeting may be standing room only). KBOO is located at 20 SE 8th Avenue, Portland, OR 9721

Please contact me if you would like to see the Board agenda and related supporting documents, as well as background information about current events at KBOO, and the long standing disfunction of the KBOO Board.

Our Glorious Leader rebuts this corporate swindle adroitly appealing to the loyalty of Outer Party members too duped by the Inner Party to know better:

All of Hadrian's charges are trumped up or exaggerated, as will be seen. Regarding the fifth accusation, it is not true that KBOO does not have community "advisement." Hadrian is attempting to entangle the FCC by digging up an irrelevant and obscure provision relating to licensing. Not only that, he has attempted to bring in State law enforcement, thus guaranteeing the further destruction of the budget, following on the Station Manager's cancellation of the Drive. If he were sincerely concerned with legal compliance, of course, he could have first put any real problem on the Board agenda, so that enforcement could be avoided. But he obviously wishes to destroy KBOO. His diatribe above refers to the May Board meeting, in which he infuriated an already angry crowd of KBOO supporters, by arrogantly stating that they were only there by gracious permission- and then walking out, breaking quorum. If KBOO won't go corporate, then it can go away.

I encourage you to call Lynn Fitch, Station Manager for KBOO, at 503-231-8032, and ask her if she supports Hadrian's multilateral attack on KBOO. homepage: http://savekboo.org
 Our Leader even boldly references Comrade Lisa "Hacker" Loving:


answering the other accusations 21.Jun.2013 12:22

tm

The first accusation refers to an attempt to discover an anonymous blogger. If that's illegal activity, then all journalists are criminals.

The second is the latest attempt to get rid of Board President SW Conser. He got some legal counsel some months ago, not regarding the Union by the way, in his capacity as Board CEO. The counsel was vital to KBOO, and the accusation is that only the full Board could have authorized it. However, long-standing nonprofit precedent indicates this is not so.

Third: it isn't just one Board member that wants to toss out the disgusting corporate Board Policy Manual. The money was wasted as soon as it was granted, because KBOO is a people's organization.

Fourth comes a diatribe by the Treasurer that hypocritically ignores the fiscal disaster of the corporate makeover (see above).
And there you have it from Our Leader herself!!!! All journalists have a constitutional right to solicit KBOO members, including their kids, to hack blogs they don't like!!  We eagerly wait more directives from Glorious Leader handwaving other potential felonies like:

Burning opposition members houses down
Burning KBOO down and blaming it on opposition members
Fraud to help pay KBOO's bills
Identity Fraud to hide the fraud paying KBOO's bills


The possibilities are endless!!

Remember, any action in support of the Glorious Revolution is excusable!

SEE YOU AT THE BARRICADES!!!!!!!

Does anybody know how to hack into a Blogspot blog to find out who is doing it? I have come across a particularly cruel blog that is trashing people at KBOO and I would like to know who's doing it. Lemme know, thank you.



Hi everybody!!! Now someone named Richard Smith has sent a screenie of my post about hacking into the anonymous bully blog to all the media in Portland, and a link to an Indymedia page and the Yellow Type blog. They are calling me out for trying to hire a child to hack a website. Awesome. Have a nice day. Thank you.

    1. Comrades, when listening to the unneeded and divisive discussion at the board meeting regarding this wholly justifiable payment to a law firm, remember to not ask yourself (or anyone else) the following questions:

      Who signed the check used to pay the law firm?

      Who, exactly, at KBOO, has authority to sign checks?

      Evil capitalist organizations sharply limit the number of people with signatory authority over the organization's bank accounts, citing irrelevant principles like "accounting controls". They even usually require that one person approve the expenditure, and that a different person sign the check. Does KBOO feel the need to slavishly copy evil capitalist organizations in this respect?

      Doublethink is your friend, Comrades!

      Let The Inner Party Do Your Thinking For You!

    2. It's interesting that Theresa knows about the reasons for Conch to seek legal counsel, since it only has ever been discussed in Closed Session. I was privy to the initial closed session, in Sept. 2012, as I was on the board then. I believe the board discussed it more recently with the current board. I don't believe Theresa sat on either board, how does she know what was discussed in closed session? I guarantee you, it is much more serious that she claims, but what do I know, I was there.

      Delete
    3. Interesting, but not surprising, that Glorious Leader is privy to board discussions made in executive session.

      I know nothing of the internal workings of KBOO, but I do know something about accounting controls in non-profit organizations, and in the organizations I'm familiar with, a member of the board would have no ability to disburse monies from the organization, whether they wanted to or not.

      Irrespective of the merits of this particular incident, I would take a very hard look at the accounting controls KBOO has, to understand how this could possibly have happened, and how to stop similar incidents in the future.

      That may be point 4 of the e-mail above:

      "4. A report from the Finance Committee that the Board is neglecting its fiduciary responsibilities."

    4. It wasn't that Conch dispersed money from KBOO, it was that he picked up the phone, called the lawyers, racked up a significant bill, and said send the bill to KBOO.
      The foundation dispersed the money. They could have not paid the bill incurred on its behalf, but that wouldn't be a wise move.

      The foundation dispersed the money. They could have not paid the bill incurred on its behalf, but that wouldn't be a wise move."

      So, did the board approve the expenditure retroactively, or has the board never approved the expenditure of the money?

      Did the board president have legal authority to obligate KBOO to spend the money? If he did not have the authority to spend the money, then under what authority did KBOO pay the bill?

      What steps has the board taken to keep this from happening again?

      Delete
    6. The board approved the bill retroactively? if I recall correctly yes. Did the board president have the authority? no. What steps have been taken to prevent it from happening again? good question. Normally folks would need to admit an error occurred to prevent it from happening again.

      Delete
    7. "Normally folks would need to admit an error occurred to prevent it from happening again."

      They have a habit of creating their own reality. Are there established procedures for dealing with inappropriate behavior? Most organizations have this laid out very clear in writing. Their lawyers tend to insist on it.

      Delete
    8. Please don't take this the wrong way, but you don't seem to be very familiar with how things work at KBOO. Accountability? Legally prudent? You're looking in the wrong place. There are policies in place, but they are ignored and if a majority of the board is complicit, then what?

      Delete
    9. "Please don't take this the wrong way, but you don't seem to be very familiar with how things work at KBOO."
      LOL! No worries! What I meant was what's on paper? Beyond the "please be nice" guidelines on the website. Whether they follow it or not.

      Delete
    10. "There are policies in place, but they are ignored and if a majority of the board is complicit, then what?"

      That may be where the Oregon Attorney General comes in. Amazingly, KBOO has to abide by the laws regulating non-profit organizations in the State of Oregon, whatever the Inner Party may think.

      The Board has a CEO? Isn't that how corporations are run?
      Is Theresa saying the SW Conser is the head of the corporatists at KBOO? Or is she incorrectly using the term CEO so that it appears Conser has more power than he actually does, you know to support her agenda.
      I'm confused.

      I would counter Theresa's claim that this legal counsel was essential. Actually it was a complete waste, which is why folks are questioning it. If it was so vital, I would ask why there was no action taken after the closed session that discussed it, not at any other juncture.
      Conch doesn't know what he's doing, he's in over his head, and the misuse of funds last September is one of several examples.

      "The first accusation refers to an attempt to discover an anonymous blogger. If that's illegal activity, then all journalists are criminals. "

      All journalists do not use their position of influence to ask people to hack a blog and admit to this on Facebook.

      The "journalist" in question is Lisa Loving of The Skanner. In her own words:

      "Does anybody know how to hack into a Blogspot blog to find out who is doing it? I have come across a particularly cruel blog that is trashing people at KBOO and I would like to know who's doing it. Lemme know, thank you."

They are calling me out for trying to hire a child to hack a website. Awesome. Have a nice day. Thank you."

      Lisa is a nut.

      Presswatch aka Theresa Mitchell was aware of these events. Yet it seems incapable of holding her allies to the same standard she's (misguidedly)expecting from KBOO.

      There's even an article about this here at indy, though it's disappeared from the feed for some reason:

      http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2013/06/423786.shtml

  10. On the meeting agenda: A motion that calls for a Board member who had no authorization to spend Foundations funds, yet did so, and wastefully, to repay the money he mis-used. The motion arrises out of the follow report from a committee with almost half the Board as members

    A Report To the Board of Directors of the KBOO Foundation
    From the Governance Committee:
    Hadrian Micciche - Chair
    Matthew Bristow - Secretary
    Jeff Kipilman
    Michael Papadopoulos
    Rabia Yeaman
    April 22, 2013

    In the matter of the Board President's unauthorized spending of KBOO funds for legal fees, the Board authorized the payment of these bills, in order to satisfy the auditors. However the Board has not, to our knowledge, made any inquiry or determination whether the Board President brought harm to the Foundation by his unauthorized spending. The GovComm is aware of the concerns of several members of the Board who are not aware of any such inquiry or determination. Looking to the official record of the Board, our minutes, we can find no information on this question.

    The Board of Directors of the KBOO Foundation would be derelict in its duty of oversight if we did not ask, and did not have answered this basic question: Was money wasted by the Board President in his unauthorized use of the time of KBOO's lawyers? We would not be acting with care if we did not have entered into the legal record, our minutes, the fact that we asked for, and did receive an answer to this question from the person in the position to make such a determination, the Executive Director.

    The GovCom asked the Executive Director if she would be willing to provide to the Board a written response to the following questions. Here is her response.

    1. Would you have authorized the Board President to incur these bills, had you been asked?
    ED: I would not have asked the Board President to contact legal counsel in September 2012 and incur the legal expenses which KBOO was invoiced for during that month.

    2. Was there wasteful spending by the Board President?
    ED: Yes, the issues in question were not an emergency, were reactive and fear-based and could
    have been avoided by being more patient and prudent.
    and if so

    3. How did this wasteful spending harm the Foundation?

    ED: These unnecessary legal expenses have had a serious negative impact on our already tight budget for FY13.

    The Executive Director also stated: I am happy to provide any emails I have which substantiate my comments. The legal costs I am commenting on happened before the EAS situation in October.

    We ask that these questions and the Executive Directors response be entered into our legal record, the minutes of the KBOO Board.

    The issue now before the Board is whether the serious negative impact on our budget has caused harm to the Foundation at a level meriting the removal of the Board President from the Board, for cause. The GovComm recommends that the Board also request that research be done to see if it is possible and warranted to seek reimbursement from the Board President for this wasteful unauthorized spending.

    1. Here is how a Board President should operate. He or she would ask the Board for approval to direct the Executive to take a certain action. In an emergency occurring between Board meetings, the Board President would ask the Executive Committee for permission.

      He asked no one.

      If asked to act on an issue by the Board President, the Executive Director may say, go ahead and make the call. She wasn't asked. If she had been, the Board President would have learned that the matter had already been discussed with a lawyer who advised us to do nothing.

      The Board President says that legal fees are covered in the budget. They are. But its not money he can spend without authorization -- and last I checked, KBOO has budgeted nothing for wasteful spending. He ran up a bill of $1500. It's his to pay.

      We will be meeting with the auditor soon. I'll make sure this misuse of funds is discussed with her.

      $1500? Is that right?

      Wow. Phone calls with attorneys can easily cost $300 and up per hour, usually a 1/2 hour minimum. Did he really talk with the attorney for 3 to 5 hours? Or did he ask for research that cost that much? Yikes, that's not a simple, casual "picked up the phone to ask a question". Next time, ask the Glorius Leader, we all know that the revolution money is handled from the Central Committee and that all Glorius Communist struggles have top down finance.

    3. As Hadrian says, legal fees are covered in the budget. But like any budget, it has a limited, set amount. If you spend most of your allocated funds at the beginning of the fiscal year (October), then you don't have money for later on for things like, say legal counsel for unionization issues.

      The billing for $1500 was in part for the lawyers searching their records and providing faxed copies of this information to the Board President. In the lawyers words, this was a breach of client/attorney privilege."
