Who let these pigs out?
Last week Noah Haglund and Jerry Cornfield posted an article without fact checking prior to publishing. The title of the story was “Anonymous records request seeks data from 1,000 county phones.”
Some of my friends sent me letters suggesting that the Snohomish County Daily Herald was trying to imply that the Gold Bar Reporter was the anonymous public records requester. Pretty laughable shit knowing what we uncovered about Snohomish County’s government thugs trying to change the Public Records Act every year since we started reporting the news pursuant to RCW 5.68.010 ( Media Shield).
Snohomish County Executive’s Officers Long History of Trying to Change the Public Records Act
From 2010 to 2011, Snohomish County Executive’s officers sent a demented old grandfather to Olympia to talk about how terrible it is that he had to turn over public records implicating him ( Gold Bar’s then Mayor Joe Beavers) in gross civil rights violations. But then when he emailed a nasty letter to open government his little old grandfather façade allowed others to finally see his true colors.
In 2012, Snohomish County Executive Officer, Kevin “shorty” Hulten created a fake company, Edmond Thomas, and he too sent anonymous public records requests to Snohomish County attempting to change the Public Records Act. Reason, to gain sympathy during the next legislative session to change the Public Record Act.
But oh no, Mr. Hulten got caught mainly by us, who then turned over the evidence to the Snohomish County Daily Herald.
And then last year ( 2014), Snohomish County Prosecutor Sister Sara DiVittorio went down to the Sunshine Committee and said ” we are out of money to protect county employees.”
We exposed Sister Sara as her ” slip of the lip” statements about how the County was out of money to protect county employees from open government supporters. Sister Sara’s slip of the tongue statements were absolutely pathetic, especially coming from a lawyer who is sworn in to uphold the great state of Washington’s laws. Instead, Sister Sara is breaking them.
Of course, as somewhat of an electronic evidence expert ( after five years of reading .pst files) I knew that there is no way that the Snohomish County Daily Herald would do what it did when Gold Bar’s then Mayor Crystal Hill resigned and not request a copy of Crystal Hill’s resignation letter.
So after seeing the Daily Herald’s article on Sunday, I couldn’t resist seeing who Mr. Public Records Requester was, so I sent a public records request for a copy of Mr. Public Records Requesters Public Records Request with metadata.

Perhaps the Snohomish County Daily Herald will do a little investigation prior to reporting that the requester is anonymous. It’s very tiring to be only one of two real journalist in Snohomish County.
Sounds like false certification by public officer to us. We’re going to keep working on getting the name of cockroach Who is trying to change open government laws from inside Snohomish County government.
Once we have their name/s, we’re going to post . That’s a promise!
