Welcome to the land of corruption, a place we Gold Bar Reporters call home. Gold Bar Washington is where the largest corruption scandal in Washington State history started over five years ago this month.
Its also where the largest corruption scandal will be exposed, and its all because former Mayor Crystal Hill and Snohomish County’s political appointee John E. Pennington were never taught how to zip their zippers and abide by their marriage vows to others.
Our investigation started by simply requesting public records ( emails) relating to Snohomish County’s public officials pursuant to RCW 42.56 ( Public Records Act). Instead of the County and the City of Gold Bar answering two very simple requests for our records, the City and the County entered a conspiracy to hide records, and according to one former insider ” defame, out money and harass the requester instead.”
Gold Bar Reporters have spent the last five years researching a county political appointee named John E. Pennington. Our findings are clear: John E. Pennington is an armed and dangerous person; thanks to Sheriff John Lovick for signing John Pennington’s concealed weapons permit even though he has a criminal harassment conviction and was charged with beating up his pregnant wife Ann in 2009.
For over five years, we have researched John Pennington’s last thirty years on this planet and we conclude that he is a pedophile, wife beater, guilty of WA DOR tax evasion, and abuses children.
If holding true to their marriage vows were the only dilemma facing the two criminals, we probably would not be here. But the Gods each and every year fail to give us candidates, thus leaving us with criminals like Crystal Hill, Joe Beavers, Lonn Turner, and John E. Pennington.
Unfortunately for Snohomish County’s children -and children every where he travels- John E. Pennington was hired without any criminal background check. ( Source, Snohomish County council member Dave Somers confirming that the County never ran a criminal background check on John E. Pennington. Jennifer Dunn also told the Seattle Times in 2005 that she was responsible for Pennington’s appointment to FEMA and she too never performed a criminal background check on Pennington prior to appointing him).
John E. Pennington was contacted several times for comment but has never denied a single allegation lodged against him, including but not limited to these facts: he was kicked out a church in San Diego after two boys lodged sexual abuse complaints against him during a camping trip, he has a prior conviction for criminal harassment, he is prime suspect in a child rape case of a 5 year girl from Colwitz County, has been accused of sexually molesting his step daughter, and county records documenting that he was caught taking showers with a six year female minor child.
We’re not sure about our readers, but we do not take showers with six year old children, and we feel confident stating that anyone who does is a pedophile. ( Source, a declaration filed against Pennington in King County).
John Pennington’s court records from King County speak loudly that he is a pedophile and we will continue to report on Pennington until he is locked up in jail with the rest of the pedophiles. Those who prey on children to fulfil their sexual deviant behavior deserve no respect. Pennington is no exception.
Ten years ago a constitutional law school professor said to me ” you are going effectuate great changes.” Never dreamed that I’d find myself investigating the Washington State Bar for gross civil rights and RICO violations against its own members and in furtherance of protecting a pedophile named John E. Pennington.
But after reading over 1 Million emails from various agencies and from the WA State Bar itself, its clear that I stumbled upon the largest RICO scandal involving several Snohomish County Prosecutors including but not limited to Sean Reay, Margaret King, Lindsey Downs, Dave Hayes, Seath Fine, Jason Cummings, and our beloved “Sister Sara” Di Vittorio ( who marches down to Olympia each year trying to change the laws so she can “protect employees” who become subject to press scrutiny) County employees Diana Rose, John E. Pennington, former Executive employees Aaron Reardon and Kevin Hulten, State Senators Steve Hobbs and Tracey Eide, and WA State Bar’s Office of Disciplinary Counsel Linda Eide, Lin O’Dell, Craig Bray, and Vanessa Norman.
More to follow on the WA Bar’s involvment in all of this on Sunday ( just waiting for the WSBA’s comment as to records received via a public records request sent between and among King and Snohomish County and the WSBA ODC documenting that the WSBA is soliciting complaints to keep the the WSBA ODC machine well funded and Sno County Prosecutors are assiting the WSBA in violating the civil rights of its members).
As John Pennington criminally harassed open government supporters on the county’s lucrative welfare program, 44 people, mainly children, suffocated to death in Washington State’s second largest natural disaster, Oso mudslides.
Four lawsuits have been filed against John Pennington detailing his criminal and negligent conduct, and one RICO complaint is coming in early 2015. John E. Pennington is a stellar Snohomish County employee, and our 6,000 dedicated readers should be happy to know that evern though Pennington has been placed on administrative leave since killing children in Oso Washington, Deputy Director Gary Haackenson signs his $150,000.00 a year welfare check.
Why? Well according to an insider from Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office, the County is petrified that if they let him go, the 44 people Pennington killed in Oso Washington, would have a clear cut case of negligence against the County. So instead, John Lovick continues to misuse taxpayer monies to fund a pedophile.
A source inside Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office told the Gold Bar Reporters two weeks ago that she over heard Mark Roe telling John Pennington that if he ” does not stop harassing Block on his Sky Valley Chronicle blog, he ( Roe) would press criminal cyber-stalking charges against the Penningtons”. Bravo to Mark Roe for opening his eyes, but proof of John Pennington’s past criminal harassment conviction record can be found inside his domestic assault records from the City of Redmond.
Our investigation of John Pennington’s criminal activity continues. But not without one source telling the Gold Bar Reporters that Snohomish County’s number one pedophile was heard bragging that he managed to convince a friend inside the FBI in Alexandria Virginia to look into the Gold Bar Reporters investigation of him.
Perhaps Mr. Pennington forgot that the First Amendment protects free speech and certainly prohibits government officials from trampling on the press and free speech rights of its citizens.
According to John Pennington’s fraudulent online school American Military Institute (AMU), he was not required to take an American Government class. Laughable shit! Or as Senator Tom Harkin called AMU ” Fraud.” We agree and respect Senator Harkin for going after fraudulent online dipliomia mills such as AMU.
As a result of John Pennington’s brags that he has a friend inside the FBI, we requested FBI records relating to John Pennington under FOIA. The FBI stated that it intends to provide records within three weeks. This FOIA includes phone records relating to John Pennington’s calls to Clarksburg West Virginia.
