John E. Pennington, former FEMA Region X political appointee, is being sued for RICO and Civil Rights violations in US Federal Court. An insider from Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office claims that Executive John Lovick recently fired John E. Pennington.
UPDATE: More public records reveal that Gold Bar former Mayors misappropriated over $1,000,000.00 of public monies to hide and conceal Crystal Hill’s (Berg) UNLAWFUL ISSUANCE OF BANK CHECKS crimes (*which she continued to write to owners of her mortgage in Gold Bar while she was sitting Mayor); John E. Pennington’s past CRIMINAL ASSAULT and CRIMINAL HARASSMENT; and their RICO violations and civil rights violations against Gold Bar Reporters to cover up the their criminal conduct. A credible source said ” John has fled the State of Washington!”

Last week, a Snohomish County insider claims that John E. Pennington was recently fired after he put something damaging inside public records sent to the City of Duvall. The City of Duvall’s response a very simple public records request appears to confirm our source is “right on target.”
Here’s a copy of the Gold Bar Reporters response from the City of Duvall after a public records request was sent to the City of Duvall seeking all records sent or received by John and/or Crystal Pennington.
The Gold Bar Reporter hired the best open government attorney in Washington to secure release of our records involving Snohomish County’s political bum, John E. Pennington.
RE: Third party notification of request for public record – our case 15-00423D
Dear Mr. and Mrs. Pennington:
This department has received a Public Disclosure request for a police record that involves you and information that might not be in the public interest and might be substantially and irreparably damaging to you if released. At the advice of our attorney and because of the nature of this case, we are advising you that per RCW 42.56.540 you have the right to seek a court injunction against the release of this record.
That injunction must specify what part of the record is not releasable. Our office allows 15 business days for a third party, in this case you, to provide us said injunction. Therefore, with tomorrow as “day one” and, we must receive that court order by Tuesday, May 4, 2015 by 4:00PM. or we will release the unredacted record the following business day.
MICHAEL KENYON GIVING LEGAL ADVICE TO JOHN AND CRYSTAL PENNINGTON, BOTH NON CITY of DUVALL EMPLOYEES (this is getting just too dam good)
For a better understanding of this process I would suggest seeking legal counsel. However, the verbiage of the above-named RCW is noted below for your review:
Court protection of public records.
The examination of any specific public record may be enjoined if, upon motion and affidavit by an agency or its representative or a person who is named in the record or to whom the record specifically pertains, the superior court for the county in which the movant resides or in which the record is maintained, finds that such examination would clearly not be in the public interest and would substantially and irreparably damage any person, or would substantially and irreparably damage vital governmental functions. An agency has the option of notifying persons named in the record or to whom a record specifically pertains, that release of a record has been requested. However, this option does not exist where the agency is required by law to provide such notice.
If you intend to seek a court injunction and for some emergent reason cannot have that to us by 5/4/15, you must contact me before 5/4/15 with notice of such. Otherwise, please feel free to call me if you have any other questions.
An insider from Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office told the Gold Bar Reporters that John Pennington disseminated more personal information on Gold Bar Reporter Block attempting to get her charged with a crime, just another attempt by Snohomish County’s number one scum/bum to SLAPP down the truth about his child and spousal abuse problems. But this time. the responding officer (not Pennington’s very close friend Lori Batoit) ran an Access check as he was supposed to, thus placing John Pennington and Crystal Hill (Berg) criminal history into a public record. For those interested in knowing just how violent John Pennington is you might request access to records in Duvall and Laughlin v. Pennington ( King County).
One insider said ” John is a sociopath!” We agree. In 2009, Gold Bar resident filed suit seeking access records that relate to public records. At the time, Block had no idea that Gold Bar’s Mayor Crystal Hill was engaged in an extramarital affair with John E. Pennington while he was married to another woman, Anne.
Block had no idea that John E. Pennington illegally used his Homeland Security Clearance to gain ACCESS to a “spider” of information about Block’s sisters, father and brother’s personal non-public information until Gold Bar’s attorney Jeffrey Myers ( Olympia) wanted to discuss medical records that John E. Pennington, Crystal Hill and Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe Beavers disseminated into public emails.
Recently, we learned that John E. Pennington illegally gained access to one of Block’s relatives mental health records and then disseminated those records into Snohomish County and City of Gold Bar’s emails. The relative is a Massachusetts resident. Unfortunately for John and Crystal Pennington, accessing and disseminating mental heath records on a Massachusetts resident is illegal. Not even medical doctors are allowed to disseminate mental health records in Massachusetts.
Block’s family members are planning to intervene in Block’s RICO and 42 USC 1983 complaint filed in Us Federal Court, specifically against John E. Pennington, Crystal Pennington and Joe Beavers.
Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe Beavers had been silently and illegally withholding John E. Pennington’s emails, but did accidently released a partial word document log confirming that John and Crystal Pennington were passing mug shots, Crystal Hill was practicing law without a license, and John E. Pennington was making racist comments about President Obama.
According to two sources, ” John is a racist. He supports abortion in only one case, when a white woman is raped by a black man. ” Just like Hitler, John E. Pennington has a disdain for minorities.
Joe Beavers admitted in Snohomish County Superior Court on January 6, 2012, that he silently withhold over 3000 records in violation of Koenig v. Lakewood. In Washington State emails are public records and each and every single record must be logged, labeled and the agency must state a statutory exemption if not released.
It’s been seven years since Block’s requested access to emails involving Pennington and Hill, and the per day penalty for withholding each record in Washington can be accessed up to $105 per day for each record unlawfully withheld. Gold Bar admits that it withheld over 3,000.
A source stated that the Washington State Bar’s Office of Disciplinary Chair Seth Fine (with no surprise a Snohomish County Prosecutor too) disseminated Block’s Washington State Bar application file to Joe Beavers, Crystal Hill and John E. Pennington via email in March 2009. Mr. Fine has not denied this allegations.
Block notified US Federal Court that she intends to add the Washington State Bar’s stellar officer of disciplinary counsel members Linda Eide, Seth Fine, Lin O’Dell, and Joseph Nappi Jr only after Block retrieved enough evidence to show the massive RICO conspiracy to harm Block thus violating her civil rights.
What the Gold Bar Reporters uncovered is a massive cancer that is spreading to the central nervous system just as any nasty cancer does. All because John E. Pennington was domestically spying on citizens misusing his Homeland Security Clearance. According to his ex-wife’s divorce records, John E. Pennington had his Homeland Security Clearance revoked in 2012 after he illegally disseminated a friend of his ex wife’s sealed court records into his King County divorce.
To cover up Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay and Margaret King wrote several WA Bar complaints against Block’s license, and John E. Pennington falsely certified that he wrote. Civil rights violations seems to be a way of life up here in Snohomish County Washington.
Further telephone records from Sean Reay ( 2013-2014) document that he and WA State Bar’s lead counsel Linda Eide met and conspired against Block attempting to thwart Block’s civil rights suit. Block resigned from the Washington State Bar citing massive corruption and is now trying to add the WA State Bar as a defendant to her RICO suit.
Public records from Gold Bar also document that attorney Michael Kenyon, attorney Jeff Myers, Denise Beaston, and Joe Beavers also violated Block’s civil rights, taken further predicate acts under RICO, when they met and conspired to harm Block’s property interest in her Bar license at Gold Bar City Hall in October 2013.
” This shit is growing like the nasty cancer it is. These people are sick!”

From one of our readers:
Really-if Mike Carter had given a damn about what I was telling him about Pennington years ago, Oso might not have happened. All of the reporters and officials, judges and lawyers that persecuted my family and buried their favorite sociopath’s criminal activity have Oso blood on their hands.
* originally posted Crystal Hill was convicted of writing bad checks but we are waiting for hard copies so we feel more comfortable stating the truth that Crystal Hill Pennington was writing bad checks while sitting Mayor and had prior charges of the same. Crystal Hill Pennington has never denied any posts
