Who is Susan Pha?
By Andrew Richter
I continue to be intrigued by the controversy surrounding Brooklyn Park city council candidate Susan Pha. So much so that I’ve decided to do some investigating into who she is.
Ms. Pha claims to be the business owner of Pha Publishing where she has written two books calling herself the President and CEO. However, when you go the company’s website the page seems to be broken. There is a facebook page for Pha Publishing and you can see it HERE but it looks more like a self-promotion of her rather than a business.
It gets worse. Pha also says on her website that she is a “Director of Project Success.” But, when you go to their website HERE you will see that she isn’t listed anywhere. Director sounds like an important position and you’d think if one of their members was running for office it would be something they’d promote. Her name, however, does not appear as a facilitator, a staff member, or on the Board of Directors. A search of her name produced no results.
Her claims so far a little fishy to say the least, but again it gets worse. She also says she is the founder of Galore, a Professional Hmong Women’s Network. Yet again, I’ve found this impossible to verify. I found. Facebook page for the group HERE when I click on their website the link is again broken.
This isn’t it folks; it’s just a beginning, but I’ve never come across a candidate who claims to fame have been so hard to verify. At this point I’m not ready to call Mrs. Pha a liar but her claims certainly lack substance and seem to be either exaggerated or nonexistent. And where is the media investigating this?????
