Mount Washington Association President Asked to Leave 'Friends' Meeting (Video)

Debate was sparked over Mount Washington Association President Rob Schraff's comments that the 'Friends' were a fringe organization.

Just how much does the Highland Park-Mount Washington community support the Friends of Southwest Museum coaltion?

That very question led to a brief debate during a 'Friends' meeting at the on Wednesday night, which ended inPresident Rob Schraff being ejected.

The 'Friends' were meeting after being dealt a at the hands of the Los Angeles City Council last week in their effort to halt the Autry National Center's of their Griffith Park campus.

Schraff spoke in favor of the proposed renovation, which the coaltion staunchly opposes on the grounds that it could jeopardize the future of the .

The debate began when member Stan Moore asserted that claims by Schraff--that the 'Friends' are a fringe organization--were untrue.

"We represent 70 organizations locally and regionally. The man who walked out the door and just walked back in, lied in the last two week and referred to us as a small group of malcontents," Moore said.

"Where are they, Stan?" Schraff replied.

As seen in the video, the debate continued until 'Friends' member Nicole Possert asked Scraff to leave, a request to which Schraff immediatley complied.

@Nimby...so, it won't bother you if i let everyone know about your criminalm past, Nimby? Is it okay that everyone knows about you being a convicted fraud, imposter, and sexual predator? Is it really fine that I post this EVERY SINGLE TIME you comment, completely ignoring the content of your post? If you're really okay with this then so be it. Civilized people of decency have other feelings. In otra palabras, try walking in the other guys moccassins, then talk about how it's no big deal.

Same to you fella, or chuvala...see? How do I know what you are? Unless your Mother & Father named you Nimby, which of course is doubtful, but not impossible (excuse me if i'm not making sense, the dr. recommended high shelf Purple Bubba Kush...) it is to be assumed you're anon. here. That's cool. It's the Internet. One of it's beauties is you can be whoever...a dude pretending to be a lady, lookin to "hook up", as the kids used to say, or a 42 yr old, black cop, pretending to be a 14 yr old whte girl. I posted a profile. I have an online identity. I am who I say I am, and it's not fair for you, or anyone else to say different, especially accusing people of horrible crimes. That steps over the line of racous debate. It's called Cyber Bullying. Look it up. It aint okay. Still, you're willing to call me all sorts of non-sensical names, reinforcing Rob's original bull shXX. eeewww! Why anyone would want to have that roll's back is disgusting! He even looks like a troll. Via con Dios, Nimby! PEACE

Again, some more very immature behavior by... Oh, anonymous postings. It is very easy to post things anonymously. You don't have to take responsibility. Looks like that what you have to say cannot be posted openly and with pride.

Anon. Posts? You mean by Adam Starr...ur...Rob Schraff? Anna, you can believe I'm who I say I am, and yes, I guess my previous comments were immature. Now, can we agree the conduct of your fromer MWA Pres., that resulted in his ejection from Friends Meeting was a bit immature? BTW, Mr. Scrhraff indicates MWA no longer supports Friends Of SW Museum. Why not?
