If WE are to win equal opportunity in 
(1) our work places for ourselves and
(2) college admissions for our children,
then the following political myths must be destroyed.

Myth 1:  To get involved in politics is to run for an office, work one's way up until one has enough clout to win equal opportunity for his/her children and all other AsAms.
Facts:    Have Elaine Chao, Ed Lee, Mazie Hirono, Tammy Duckworth, Kamala Harris, Nikki Haley, and Judy Chu ever done anything for AsAms in those 2 areas?   They are as high up as they can get.   

Myth 2:  These elected AsAm officials are at least our best hope.  
Facts:    In the U.S., one can organize/join political action committees, PACs, which can be so much more powerful than elected politicians, especially for a small minority.  For example, AIPAC is the reason why the Jewish Am community, with a population of 6 million, can be politically so powerful.

  Explain!  All of the above sounds unbelievable

     The above are the result of 3 circumstances:

1.  A majority of the voters in the election districts of the above named officials  are NOT AsAmsexcept for Sen. Mazie Hirono of Hawaii. 
2.  The non-AsAm voters dislike their AsAm official working for AsAms
3.  AsAm elected officials are human beings who wish to avoid tough re-elections.

   In contrast, 80-20 PAC doesn't face a re-election from the general population.  Quite to the contrary, PAC's officials only fear NOT working hard enough for AsAms causing donations to drop &/or being voted out by PAC members. The incentives for PAC officials and AsAm elected officials are in diametrically opposed directions.

    Q 1:  How about Sen. Mazie Hirono, the majority of her voters are AsAms?
    Q 2:  How about Elaine Chao and Nikki Haley who are cabinet officials who don't face elections?   To keep this article short, I'll answer these questions and destroy other myths next week.

Readers' Reaction to this Liar

How Our Community Has Responded
   Our readers wrote in to praise 80-20 for calling out David Tian Wang (王湉, 別名天天), who intentionally misled our community.  At least 3 of the 13 who wrote in have heard Tian Tian's misleading statement, before 80-20 exposed his lies.   Big lies spread fast.  So we are NOT making a mountain out of a molehill.
    Unbelievably, Tian Tian may still be lying on WeChat, if a reader reported his statements correctly.  See item 13 in this e-newsletter.   See also the relevant law, appended at the very end.

Hello Dr. Woo,   Thank you for sending this email to me.  This is the first time I saw it, I might miss some emails.  I really appreciated your hard work.  At least, we have something to tell our community.  I have followed your wechat account. Thanks again.         Sherry

   This guy not only gave a black eye to Chinese American, but also lend credence to ONE of the Trump's battle cries, i.e., FAKE and Illegal Voters. Should 80-20 take further action to name this person and expose him in a very public way, public at least in the sense for all the Asian Community to see?  This is because in his chats, he was flouting the law and being blatant about it.   The irony was that he even admonished his chat followers "to know the law so not be afraid of it . . . "
By the way, my suggestion should not be construed as a support to Trump, regardless to Parties or politics.   While I don't know if this were wide spread in OTHER minority communities, especially of those not legal voters, but I feel that even ONE among us is shameful, and should make him drink his own koolaids, as the saying goes.   Thank you for listening to my rant, not usually my habit.

Dear SB, I commend you for stepping out from your retirement to talk with authority about shameful betrayal of this kind.  It would be good to track down the true identity of these two men. They could very well be non-Chinese with Chinese names.   Temay So 
My answer to Temay:  "David Tian Wang is a real person.  SB"
(8) & (9)  I also got an email which said," You and your organization is disgusting."  And another person thanked 80-20 for "having called out Wang's lies."

Dr. Woo:  This is great.

Morning, I personally could not agree with you more! Thank you so much to spend time to do investigation and release this statement. Public, especially Chinese from mainland are in deep trouble of false information and we need to provide more to help them even many are hopeless. I never stop working with them even some "extremist"  
We encourage them to get engaged first, they like media attention, give them, they need fans, give them but sooner or later they will realize all we need is truth and fact to build long term relationship and power.  The only thought I can provide for this Tian Tian is to give him an option in public and allow him to do some other good things.

Dear Dr. Woo:  I forwarded this message to one of a wechat groups I'm in. Surprisingly, without my awareness, David Tian Wang is in the same group. He is not happy about the information and pointed to me that some of the facts are not correct:
      * He is not US citizen
      * He did not officially vote; but he casted a ballot ("投废票",as he said )
If you like, I would like you two connected and get the facts cleared.
My answer to Alan: "I am surprised that he is only unhappy. He should be ashamed. However, as I said we are willing to work with him still if he is willing to apologize to our community for intentionally misleading it." 

If indeed he cast a ballot, then he is in deep trouble. See the relevant law (18 U.S. Code § 611 - Voting by aliens) shown at the end.

 The relevant law regarding David Tian Wang's claim:
  1. U.S. Code ' Title 18 ' Part I ' Chapter 29 ' § 611
18 U.S. Code § 611 - Voting by aliens

(a) It shall be unlawful for any alien to vote in any election held solely or in part for the purpose of electing a candidate for the office of President, Vice President, Presidential elector, Member of the Senate, Member of the House of Representatives, Delegate from the District of Columbia, or Resident Commissioner, unless-
  (1) the election is held partly for some other purpose; [CA doesn't permit provision (a) (1) during a federal election.  Hence, this section is NOT applicable to David Tian Wang.  Note added by S. B. Woo on 6/16/2017.]
  (2) aliens are authorized to vote for such other purpose under a State constitution or statute or a local ordinance; and
  (3)voting for such other purpose is conducted independently of voting for a candidate for such Federal offices, in such a manner that an alien has the opportunity to vote for such other purpose, but not an opportunity to vote for a candidate for any one or more of such Federal offices.
(b) Any person who violates this section shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than one year, or both.  (Emphasis added.)
(c)Subsection (a) does not apply to an alien if-
   (1) each natural parent of the alien (or, in the case of an adopted alien, each  
    adoptive parent of the alien) is or was a citizen (whether by birth or naturalization);
   (2) the alien permanently resided in the United States prior to attaining the age of 16; and
   (3) the alien reasonably believed at the time of voting in violation of such subsection that he or she was a citizen of the United States.

Evidence of lies presented here

CORRECTION: Links fixed from last newsletter
80-20 Educational Foundation is deeply concerned about the 
behavior of David Tian Wang, whose Chinese name is 王湉, 
別名天天, and who is a fairly well-known individual in some 
sectors of the Chinese-American community. No one should
intentionally mislead our community. 

There were technical problems with Monday's newsletter and 
a few of the links were inactive. The important evidence of the 
lies told by some members of our community was unavailable. 
 Click here to see it today. Here is also a direct link that shows 
the lies that were told. Part of that evidence is presented below. 
If you have not read Monday's e-newsletter, it is presented below 
again, with corrected links.

Preamble:  To win equal opportunity for ourselves, we need 
 to work together & NOT intentionally mislead our own people.

          An Irresponsible Person Lied Publicly

    A person by the name of David Tian Wang in CA, a fairly 
well-known person in some sectors of the Chinese-Am 
community stated insistently in that he had 
voted in the CA primary, although he was NOT a U.S. citizen.  
Click here to verify.    Many may find his deceitfulness and 
arrogance amusing.  Many people wrote 80-20 and requested 
that we find out if he actually voted.  80-20 investigated. It was 
obvious that David Tian Wang did not vote in the CA primary 
of 2016.  He lied to deceive his own people.

    80-20 PAC obtained a voters list from the state of CA.  The 
following is what we found, through the help of Daniel Zhu of 
Palo Alto CA, a high school student with exceptional computer 
skills and facilities.

1.  shows the 
locations of all possible Wangs, with the first name of David 
and/or Tian, and

2. shows the four 
persons with that name living near or at Diamond Bar, CA, 
where David Tian Wang resides. 

   The two people at Diamond Bar, are age 50+ and the two 
others have registered to vote before 2010, while this David 
Tian Wang is 33 yrs of age and claimed to be voting for the 
1st time in 2016.

For each person we have the following in the records: 
  • CountyCode
  • RegistrantID
  • ExtractDate
  • LastName
  • FirstName
  • MiddleName
  • Suffix

Epilogue: We must work together.  80-20 will be delighted to 
work with the above two individuals, too, if they stop intentionally 
deceiving their own people.  This will create a win-win for the 
social media institutions, for the people who use these 
media, for our community and indeed for these 2 individuals.
