Ling Ling Chang shows up on “Naughty List” Just in Time for Christmas

ling-ling-and-friends1

SD-29 GOP candidate Ling Ling Chang, an assembly rep for AD-55, is having her record laid bare as a “bad girl” when it comes to telling the truth about her background, her education and her record as a State Senate candidate via a new website you can see here.

Apparently, this is the counter to an anti-Sukhee Kang website being run by Fullerton’s Tony Bushala that surely is running out of fresh story ideas by now.  The LingLingLies site has quite a bit of substance.

From the site:

Chang got married in January of 2010, and presumably moved into her new husband’s home. But she still claimed her parents’ address in Diamond Bar as her voting residence until August of 2013 – four months after she announced she was running for the Assembly.

If she lived with her husband as her primary residence while claiming for voting purposes that she still lived in her parents’ house, that would be voter fraud. If she didn’t live with her husband, but still lived with her parents at the age of 38, what does that say?

On the City of Diamond Bar website, Chang’s biography claimed she had a degree in biology from UC Riverside. Again when running for the Assembly in 2014, she told the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin that she had a degree from UC Riverside. In fact, she has never graduated from college or earned a college degree of any type.

and…

On her own LinkedIn profile, Chang lists “Harvard” under her “Education.” In other places in candidate profiles, she has claimed she is “attending Harvard.” That’s a lie. In fact, she has never been admitted to or attended Harvard University, she is merely taking on-line extension courses from Harvard Extension School.

Just about anyone can take a Harvard Extension School class; it’s not nearly as rigorous are hard to get into as the actual Harvard University but boy it sure sounds good on paper.

As far as her business experience goes, not a lot of truthiness to that either:

On her LinkedIn site, and elsewhere in candidate profiles, Chang claimed as a candidate for Assembly that she was a “Principal” at something called the “Strategy Insights Group”, a murky operation that appears to be nothing more than a website – probably created to cover the fact that she had no paying job when she was running for the Assembly.

This group’s website, strategyinsightsgroup.com, is a joke. Although claiming that everyone involved in it was connected to McKinsey & Company, Chang has never worked for the prestigious consulting firm – and neither Chang’s own name, nor the name of any other human being, is even mentioned on the site. The contact phone number (213-255-5750213-255-5750) rings to a Google Voice request to leave your name and someone will get back to you.

Even more important, when Chang filed her Statement of Economic Interests (Form 700) covering all of 2014, a mandatory filing required of all candidates, she listed no income whatsoever from Strategy Insights Group, nor does she list any business position with the entity, only her husband’s income as an attorney.

So either the Strategy Insights Group is/was a sham, or she perjured herself by not claiming any income from her supposed work for the company.

….

And a final item sure to guarantee coal in Chang’s stocking, an profanity-laced audiotape.  Go to the site yourself to hear it.

    Who is proofreading this page? DUI piano man or your DUI photographer? So she lied a little! Following Jordan’s lead!

      so it’s OK that she lied a little? Jordan isn’t running for State Senate…let’s try to keep our elections straight because I’m not falling for that, “oh shiny…look over there” tactic.

        Jordan WAS runing for the US House under the Democratic flag. Thank God for the real Dems who stood up to cqll him on his BS and properly label him the DINO that he is.

      Does this mean two wrongs make a right?

    I’m sort of sad that our host won’t let me link to my breaking some of the most significant aspects of this story on OJB over a year ago — like when I ACTUALLY READ THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE HARVARD EXTENSION PROGRAM IN BIOLOGY — but luckily the website itself includes those cites (last I checked.)

    I’m glad that it will be of use to either Josh or Sukhee.

      Greg, I lived in Boston for nine years and know exactly what Harvard Extension School is all about. And its duly noted here in far fewer words than your expose’

        Ah yes. Boston. That Liberal enclave of enlightened Democrats who damn near burned down their own city over school integration of busing African American students into white schools. Now I understand you a lot better and why you are just hunky dory with the penciling out of Latinos in gaining their own representative on the city council dais. It all makes sense now.

        • December 22, 2015 at 4:27 pm

          You’re a dimwit; I didn’t get there until ’88.

            And yet you have totally absorbed the principals of that generation. Preventing minorities from fully participating in civic affairs or improving their lot. Like I’ve said before, you are no Democrat and you should leave before you embarrass yourself even further. We don’t want you claiming to be a Democrat when you are clearly not.

            • December 22, 2015 at 9:47 pm

              Henry, you are a moron. First off, it’s principles not principals. I’m not preventing anyone from fully participating in civic affairs — participation is a choice. People improve their lot via participation and choosing a path to improve their lives be it be better education. Made you going to kick me out of this party? Under what authority?

        Really? Without looking it up, tell me: what was the critical fact that I uncovered and noted in that article that had not theretofore been raised by anyone?

        Don’t look it up now! You already KNOW all about the Harvard Extension program, after all!

        • December 23, 2015 at 11:37 am

          Really? Without guessing, tell me if you think I read every piece you do? Spoiler; I don’t.

            Apparently you also didn’t read the links in the footnotes of the “Ling Ling Lies” page.

            I realize that it’s not as great an accomplishment as reprinting press releases, but: you’re welcome.

              Merry Christmas Greg. I saw the attribution and there’s some to us as well. i notice your work didn’t stop Chang from being elected to the state assembly.

              What did you get the wife for Christmas Greg?

              • December 26, 2015 at 6:33 pm

                Greg is on moderation. If you have a question for him, ask him on his blog.

      Josh has lived in Fullerton for three years and lived outside of OC for most of his adult life whereas Kang has lived in OC for the majority of his adult life and is a new homeowner in Fullerton; so what’s the over/under on how long you need to live here before you can run for office?

  3. December 23, 2015 at 12:40 pm

    As so often, broken first (and long ago) by the Orange Juice Blog, the OC’s indispensible political mosh pit. Google ling ling chang lies.
