WARNING: KEEP YOUR CHILDREN AWAY FROM JOHN E. PENNINGTON
When’s a scum bag always a scum bag. ” Meet John “Theodore Bundy” Pennington. Also known as the man who caused thousands of deaths in the Hurricane Katrina Debacle and 44 deaths in Oso Washington mudslides. In the late 1980’s, after flunking out of Vanderbilt College in Tennessee, John Pennington moved to a small suburban city just outside of San Diego California. While in San Diego, Pennington meet his new victim, who believe he legally married, so are calling her ex wife # 1.
Two years later, John Pennington fled from Southern California, again heading home to Nashville, only after two small boys made allegations of sexual abuse against him while on a church camping trip.
While in Tennessee, Pennington made an unsuccessful run for an open Republican State Rep. After a landslide loss for Pennington, he again headed west. This time to Oregon, where he met his next victim Loraina ( thank you for talking me and thanks for following the reporter). In the early 1990’s Mr. Pennington plead guilty to criminal harassment after he hospitalized his finance in Oregon. As a result, John Pennington fled from Oregon to Vancouver Washington. While in Vancouver, John Pennington meets his next victim. Sadly, they soon married.
While working in a coffee delivery business, John Pennington stole coffee grinding equipment from his previous employer and used this equipment to start up a coffee shop in Kelso. Purpose was to make it look like he was an entrepreneur ( but he is really a sociopath) as to grab an uncontested Republican seat in Colwitz County.
It worked, Pennington managed to get elected to an uncontested WA House of Representatives seat. Unfortunately for residents in New Orleans and Oso Washington, he met a powerful Washington State Republican leader, Jennifer Dunn.
In 1992, a 5 year old girl was kidnapped, raped, and then tossed along a Colwitz County road like a piece of trash. According to Colwitz County Sheroff’s Office, John Pennington became one of two prime suspects for the following reasons: (1) Pennington operated a coffee delivery route within six blocks of where the child was dumped; (2) he drove the same car; (3) Pennington was in the area at the time of the child rape; (4) Pennington’s picture from 1992 is almost a complete match to the child and witness’s sketch drawing of the pedophile; and (5) Pennington relentlessly convinced his ex wife to call the police attempting to divert attention away from himself and onto another man.
According to police records, Mr. Pennington has deep seeded anger management issues ( but he did pass one anger management class) and major issues with racism, just as his father (a Nashville police officer) does. John Pennington, former DEM for Snohomish County, has countless child abuse and spousal abuse complaints against him; Mr. Pennington is a racist according to people close to him he said ” I only support abortion when a white woman is raped by a black man” Just like Hitler, Pennington has a real disdain for minorities “Birds of the same feathers flock together as do pigs and swine.
According to sources close to John Pennington he is also an abuser of prescription pills, and was detained at the US Mexico for having narcotics ( non-prescription pain pills) on his person while coming back into the US. Pennington has never denied this allegation.
From 1992 to 2005, John Pennington’s violence grew with his ex wife. # 2 . From pushing her down stairs and constant physical abuse are just some examples of what we know to be true.
But the case that raised our eyebrows is Mr. Pennington’s abuse on his ex-wife # 2 ( who is really ex wife # 3) Anne Laughlin. Ms. Laughlin was a City of Duvall city council member at the time of Pennington’s assault of Anne. Anne was three weeks away from giving birth to her daughter when Pennington violently assaulted, kicked and punched Anne in the stomach and uterual area. A real salt of the earth kind of man.
Since Ms. Laughlin was a Duvall city council member at the time, the City of Duvall sought a Special Prosecutor. The prosecutor assigned to prosecute wife beater John Pennington came from the law firm of Kenyon Disend.
In 2009 when Pennington assaulted Laughlin, this was his third domestic violence charge. This should have amounted to jail time for Pennington.
NOW COMES, Michael Kenyon. A hater of open government, and the attorney responsible for hiding public records involving former Mayor Colleen Hawkins. Kenyon’s hiding of public records in violation of RCW 42.56 is well documented through the case involving local Gold Bar residents Joan and Robert Amen.
Public records we received document that attorney Michael Kenyon made an illegal agreement with the City of Sammamish to hide Hawkins email communication, and then refused to release public records claiming that he no longer had them. According to Washington State Attorney General Nancy Krier such agreements are not permissible under the Public Records Act. A fact that we are not sure that she shared with Kenyon. In 2008 one of Kenyon Disend’s lawyers ( Special Prosecutor) managed to quash John Pennington’s domestic violence charges. Soon thereafter, the Law Firm of Kenyon Disend received two lucrative contracts, one with the City of Duvall and the other with the City of Gold Bar.
Then in 2011, Kenyon Disend’s junior attorney, Ann Marie Soto, received an email from John Pennington via Snohomish County computers demanding that Kenyon Disend redact police reports involving John Pennington’s that we requested under RCW 42.56. We sought the advice of an expert in records issues who is of the opinion that Kenyon Disend’s redaction of police reports was not permissible under the Public Records Act.
Then a source close to ex # 2 ( or # 3 depending on what public records you believe as it relates to Pennington’s aliases) provided us with thousands of records relating to John Pennington, and those records included Pennington’s email communication with Duvall’s Mayor about how to get Pennington’s soon to be ex-wife Anne Laughlin off the City Council.
In 2009, Pennington then used Aaron Reardon’s connection to the Seattle Times reporter ( who then became Reardon’s aide) to post a story about Anne Laughlin, pretty much the same way he did to Gold Bar Reporters in February 2012. Former Seattle Times reporter Emily Heffner was contacted for comment but all she would say is ” you need to move because they are coming after you.” She never did state who “they” were, but as we stated to Ms. Heffner before, “We have only one live to give and it shall be for the betterment of our society as a whole.”
As of today, Attorney Michael Kenyon and Ann Marie Soto have bilked the taxpayers of Gold Bar over $840,000.00 hiding former Mayor Crystal Hill’s public records ( emails) documenting that she was practicing law without a license, and John Pennington making racist comments about President Obama and running illegal ACCESS background checks in violation of RCW 10.97.
The bigger question that Michael Kenyon refused to answer was what he gained for quashing John Pennington’s criminal charges for beating up his pregnant wife Anne, hiding Pennington’s racist comments and his illegal background checks. We affirmatively John Pennington, former DEM for Snohomish County, has countless child abuse and spousal abuse complaints against him; Mr. Pennington is a racist according to people close to him he said ” I only support abortion when a white woman is raped by a black man” Just like Hitler, John E. Pennington has a real distain for minorities
