Lori Shavlik’s case uncovered a massive racketeering (RICO) scandal operating with the assistance of a hand full of Snohomish County Prosecutors and a few Snohomish County Brady cops.
For those of you not familiar with Snohomish County’s malicious prosecution of Lori Shavlik should read past articles to get a full picture of what we’re uncovering is nothing more than a RICO operating right from Snohomish County Washington’s government offices.
In addition to the RICO crimes, Snohomish County is committing against any citizen who speaks out or forbid files suit against an agency, we just learned that several of its racketeering members are part of a mortgage fraud scam.
Investigating mortgage fraud
Recently a family member suggested mortgage fraud might be involved, so I decided to either prove or disprove her theory. First, I started by looking at each RICO members mortgage history on their personal homes. My first thought to my family member was “no mortgage fraud isn’t the issue, its racketeering, committed on behalf of political bums who couldn’t get a job if there life depended on it except if appointed as a political favor.”
However, another news reporter and I started researching just the small players involved in my case and in the malicious prosecution of Lori Shavlik, and what uncovered leaves us to believe there are a hell of a lot of people involved in this RICO scandal, including bankers, appraisers, real estate agents, dirty cops, prosecutors, lawyers, and a former political appointee John E. Pennington.
John E. Pennington is responsible for the rape of a five year child from Cowlitz County Washington, molesting a ten year old girl in Duvall, Washington, linked to several missing children in at least four states, and the sole person responsible for causing the deaths of forty three residents in the Oso mudslide disaster.
It’s important for my readers to understand why John E. Pennington is in this story because he too is connected to the mortgage fraud scheme, RICO offense punishable by thirty years in federal prison. Prison walls John E. Pennington will see before I take my last breath on this planet.
Unfortunately for the taxpayers, my family member was right on target about how deep the mortgage fraud RICO scheme extends.
What is mortgage fraud?
According to Wikipedia, mortgage fraud is defined “as a crime in which the intent is to materially misrepresent or omit information on a mortgage loan application to obtain a loan or to obtain a larger loan than would have not been obtained had the lender or borrower known the truth.
In United States federal courts, mortgage fraud is prosecuted as wire fraud, bank fraud, mail fraud and money laundering, with penalties of up to thirty years imprisonment. As the incidence of mortgage fraud has risen over the past few years, states have also begun to enact their own penalties for mortgage fraud.“
After looking at Snohomish County’s Brady cop David Fontenot, Snohomish County Prosecutor Adam Cornell, and terminated and former Snohomish County political appointee John E. Pennington’s mortgage scams, we believe the banks that loaned each money on their homes should be investigated for mortgage fraud.
Thankfully I have morals, thus I am no Prosecutor, and if I had to pick one a “Whitey Bulger” in local Snohomish County politics, it’s hands down attorney Geoffrey Gibbs.
For those of my readers who are not familiar with Whitey Bulgar should read Wikipedia’s article. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whitey_Bulger
Whitey Bulgar is important only to illustrate how many government officials are involved in assisting the Enterprise from Snohomish County, and we feel safe to say, this includes at least one FBI agent located in Everett Washington, Don Metcalfe.
Early on John Pennington wrote to the Gold Bar Reporter stating ” don’t expect any help from the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office, Washington State Patrol, or the Seattle FBI … hahahaha” as John Pennington inferred in his email, the Seattle FBI is assisting the criminals inside Snohomish County.
In 2012, we confirmed via a public records requested John Pennington’s brags are right on target; FBI agent Don Metcalfe was assisting Snohomish County with illegal searches on citizens in violation of the 4th Amendment. We learned this from the Washington State Patrol.
We researched each Snohomish County Prosecutor involved in malicious prosecution of Ms. Shavlik and what we learned Snohomish County Prosecutor Adam Cornell signed a probable cause statement in her case left this doubting tom with little doubt that each should be in prison for mortgage fraud.
I had the privilege of reviewing the evidence in the Shavlik arson case and it became clear that several government officials tampered with the alleged crime scene, photo-shopped pictures, lied under oath, and framed Lori Shavlik to assist Judge Robert Leach, who with no surprise is a RICO enterprise member associated with the Law Firm of Anderson Hunter ( Geoffrey Gibbs as a partner).
Attorney Geoffrey Gibbs is the most notorious criminal on the loose up here in Snohomish County. For those of you interested in reading about political bottom of the barrel scum should click on the following links:
Linking mortgage fraud, using RCWE 42.56 ( Public Records Act)
We here in Washington State are lucky because we have the legal right to access public records under RCW 42.56, and according to the Honorable Justice Debra Stephens there is no limit on how many public records requests a person can ask for, and requesting access to public records can never be criminal harassment.
Although I didn’t vote for Supreme Court Justice Debra Stephens, I honor her with a job well done in the Zink v Mesa case.
Adam Cornell came under my radar because when I and another reporter decided to exercise our First Amendment rights to inform the Duvall Washington Community Theatre that John E. Pennington is a pedophile, and his wife Crystal Hill Pennington ( convicted of bank fraud in 2005) was responsible for violently assaulting a six year girl with the assistance of Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe ( he actually sent an email demanding the Child Protective Services not prosecute Crystal Hill for assaulting a child), Mark Roe ” cc’d” Adam Cornell in on emails attempting to trump up criminal charges on you guessed it ” cyber-stalking” ( John Pennington and Crystal Hill Pennington’s favorite post on his Sky Valley Chronicle page alleging that somehow informing the public of his criminal conduct is cyber-stalking) for exercising my First Amendment rights to inform the public of John E. Pennington’s extensive crimes against women and children.
Anyone at this point affiliated with Mark Roe, or who Mark Roe feels confident to ” cc” in on an email about trying to trump up criminal charges based solely on First Amendment protected activity of an award winning journalist such as myself, has to be as least as dirty as Mark Roe.
Since Adam Cornell signed the probable cause document against Lori Shavlik and in April 2016, Mark Roe and he tried to get me charged with ” cyber-stalking” for reporting on their criminal conduct.
Cornell’s involvement with assisting in at least two attempts to maliciously prosecutions and as well his involvement in playing a shuffle game on behalf of an agency employee who Shavlik had managed to oust from the Monroe School District, I am now confident to post that Adam Cornell is a member of the RICO Enterprise.
Adam Cornell is punk kid prosecutor who spent most of his life in foster care.
The State of Washington, with the assistance of attorneys’ Charles Wiggens and Kenneth Masters assisted the former governor Christine Gregoire in covering up the ” Ok Boys Home” sex abuse scandal costing the taxpayers millions.
Christine Gregoire said there were still many questions unanswered, but failed to tell the Seattle Times that questions remain unanswered because attorney Charles Wiggens and Kenneth Masters assisted Christine Gregoire in withholding access to public records.
For his criminal assistance in helping Washington State avoid liability by hiding public reocrds, Charlie Wiggens received a political endorsement to the Washington State Supreme Court, and Kenneth Masters an appointment as the head of the Trial Lawyers Association and leader inside the center of the rotten onion, the Washington State Bar Association.
Strangely, Adam Cornell lands a political appointment to the Department of Justice and Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office right after graduating from law school with no prior experience in practicing law.
Since Adam Cornell was involved in signing off for Robert Leech in the malicious prosecution of Lori Shavlik, and was a trustee of Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe, we started investing what loans he had against his home in Edmonds. Keep in mind I really doubted we’d find much, but a simple public records searched yielded that Adam Cornwell, who makes about $120,000.00 per year purchased a home in Edmonds Washington for $279,000.00 about ten years ago, and now has a mortgage loan for $659,000.00.
According to a loan expert, for a person to qualify for a home mortgage of $659,000.00 against a home now valued at $379,000.00 family income combined must total over $409,000.00 per year.
Adam Cornell makes around $120,000.00 per year. So either he has some great secondary income or someone is assisting him with mortgage fraud. We believe the latter.
Snohomish County Brady Cop David Fontenot had a similar shady mortgage loan against his previous home in Monroe. Remember, David Fontenot was the Brady ( dirty) cop involved in tampering with the crime scene on behalf of helping Judge Robert Leach trump up criminal charges on Lori Shavlik after he had just beat him in the Monroe School District case. Case that was brought on after a football jock, and drug addict, had criminal harassed/ assaulted her daughter.
David Fontenot home in downtown Monroe was valued at $186,000.00, but recently mortgaged at $529,000.00.
This type of loan would require a family income of $249,000.00 per year to justify a mortgage of this magnitude.
Google Earth shows that Fontenot previous home had a very large dwelling attached to the back of his home, which according to an investigator, is at least an eight car garage. These small facts lead us to believe that David Fontenot was using the garage for illegal means. His silence is golden, but he responds to our requests for comment, we will post his comments without edits so long as he stays within our Supreme Court’s holdings on First Amendment free speech ( no threats).
Now comes John E. Pennington. For almost ten years I have been investigating criminal pedophile John E. Pennington for the rape and molestation of small children in at least four different states after the Cowlitz County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that Pennington is the man responsible for the rape of the five year old girl in 1992. However, what I never investigated was his mortgage loans. Well I now have and I am now confident to state John E. Pennington’s criminal conduct is now connected to yet another RICO crime, mortgage fraud.
My investigators retrieved copies of his divorce files. Inside those files we learned that John E. Pennington is broke. So broke that John E. Pennington forged his mother-in-law’s signature on a credit card application making himself an authorized user on her credit card. Then he illegally charged thousands of dollars refusing to pay back what he stole. Evidence retrieved via his deposition in Laughlin v. Pennington ( King County, and there is much more we have on Pennington that will not be released until he’s deposed.
We also learned from his divorce files and further investigation that John E Pennington molested two boys on a church camping trip the late 80s in San Diego. Soon after being caught, he fled the state of California.
On a side note, I’d like to note that when the story of John Pennington molesting children was carried by another news reporter here in Snohomish County, Seattle Times reporter Mike Carter wrote to her bashing her story that somehow alleging that Pennington was guilty of molesting both boys and girls is not permissible. I’d like our readers to know that John E. Pennington has never denied a single news story we published in this regards, even though he was contacted for comment over and over again; and John Pennington has never sued anyone of us for defamation.
Further, I’d like to educate Seattle Times reporter Mike Carter about pedophiles, it’s not about sexual preference, it’s about control and desire to harm children in the most vulnerable stage of their lives. With no surprise, pedophiles often hide in religious institutions, and again with no surprise Pennington loves church ( easy access to prey on our kids).
We recently learned that Mike Carter, just like Herald news reporter Scott North’s main source for diversion stories ( also known as wag the dog stories) was John E. Pennington.
John Pennington’s Snohomish County welfare check yielded around $139,000.00 per year. Yet Pennington managed to obtain a loan, with grave financial obligations ( he owed his criminal defense attorney $60,000.00 in 2009; and his family attorney $80,000.00 in 2009 making over $1600.00 in monthly payments, had four children by four different women thus owing thousands a month in child support, credit card debt beyond repair, etc.), totaling over $400,000.00.
Now were not sure about our readers, but just the fact that John Pennington’s credit score was so bad that he couldn’t ever obtain a credit card in his own name, more likely than not, made him ineligible for any home mortgage loan post 2009 ( the year when George Bush’s fraudulent home mortgage scheme’s bubble burst). Unless of course, a bank officer assisted him. Since we here in Washington State have a legal right to access public records, this question will be answered shortly.
But we do know from public records that John Pennington took out a loan from Washington Mutual Bank in 2006 for $419,000.00 to purchase his home in Duvall Washington. In 2009 Washington Mutual, a Seattle based company, collapsed for mortgage fraud. Then, strangely, Chase Manhattan Bank gives John Pennington another loan for $349,000.00 for that same house in Duvall.
But wait, there’s no evidence that John Pennington ever paid back the first Washington Mutual loan of $419,000.00 from 2006. I believe that Washington Mutual illegally cleared the debt to John Pennington, making it look to Chase Bank that Pennington actually owned his home in Duvall Washington by simply hitting the delete button clearing his debt and the title to his Duvall home.
Each and every time I expose a cockroach, a review of their mortgage will be first point of order.
I respectfully thank my family member for opening my eyes to mortgage fraud. I dedicate this article to her . . . and I will continue to shine much needed light on the cockroaches who are trying to trump up criminal charges on honest hard working citizens to benefit a few. The purpose of their RICO conduct is to line their pockets with the the gold of others.
Judge Robert Leach, I haven’t yet began to dig because the shit is so deep when it comes to you that I’m going to need a dump truck. But since You sir harmed so many people, I now have a lot of help. Know this, You can thank Mark Roe and John E. Pennington.
“ When the lights go on, the cockroaches scatter.”
As for attorney Mike Kenyon’s involvement in this mortgage fraud scam, one can look to Suncadia Resort in Cle Elm Washington and his home located on Beaver Lake in Sammamish for evidence of what his involvement in all of this is.
City of Duvall Brady cop Lori Batiot is also a real estate agent with similar mortgage scams… and she always the person assigned to monitor drug sniffing police dogs. Batiot met John Pennington while she worked as basically as a stripper (also known in Washington State as a coffee barista) inside a coffee stand in Bellingham, and we have ample reason to believe that John Pennington used his coffee delivery business to transport drugs up the I 5 corridor. A story we’ll get back to after Pennington’s deposition.
Further, we also discovered that a high ranking free market participant with the Washington State Bar Office of Disciplinary Counsel, also working for the law firm of Lane and Powell received a house on Lake Washington valued at $1.5 million for $500,000.00 after the firm was caught in gross ethics violations committed against Carol and Mark Decoursey.
We promise this is just the start.
