John E. Pennington, terminated from Snohomish County Department of Emergency Management and FEMA Region X – Washington State
Snohomish County Executive, The Honorable Dave Somers
On December 17, 2015, Snohomish County Executive Dave Somers made the most important decision of his career, tossing an uneducated bum named John E. Pennington, a political appointee of the disgraced former executive Aaron Reardon and George W Bush, to the curb with the rest of Snohomish County’s trash.
As a person with accredited college degrees, one can assume that Dave Somers had the good sense to toss Aaron Readon’s left over trash to the curb is because a real college education mandates that one be a critical thinker.
Unfortunately for Oso residents, former Executive “Dumb as a Rock” John Lovick allowed John E. Pennington to kill 43 people in the Oso mudslides in Washington State’s most preventable loss of life
Public records from Snohomish County released last week document that instead of mitigating, John E. Pennington was paid by Snohomish County to criminally harass his opponents, hack into the Gold Bar Reporters WordPress account, create fake identities, create Match.com accounts to solicit extra-marital affairs, and assault women and children.
Each step of the way, Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe, Sara Di Vittorio and Sean Reay assisted in covering up John E. Pennington’s extensive criminal history.
Welcome to Snohomish County Washington, a lovely place to raise a family.
John Pennington, solely responsible for killing 43 people in the Oso Mudslides
Oso Washington, 2009 ( before the mudslide)
Oso Washington Mudslide 2014, documenting John Pennington, the sole person in charge of Snohomish County Emergency Management, gross incompetence. Pennington caused 43 people to suffocate to death, many children under 12
In March 2014, John E. Pennington was the only county employee responsible for mitigating natural disasters here in Snohomish County. A grant given to him by former executive John Lovick ( dubbed by the Gold Bar Reporter as dumb as a rock John Lovick’), a grant that former executive Aaron Reardon stripped away after Reardon asked John Pennington a simple emergency management question that he could not answer causing Reardon to have grave concerns about his competence, yanking emergency management authority away from him in 2010.
Public records confirm that in January 2014, Dumb as a Rock John Lovick issued a proclamation granting full emergency management authority back to Pennington, solely.
According to a source close to Aaron Reardon, John Pennington was the best he could find to fill a $150,000.00 per year position. Pretty laughable to those of us who actually earned accredited college degrees.
As a result of John E. Pennington’s criminal conduct, Snohomish County currently has 33 Oso mudslide victims and survivors suing the County for millions. Three months ago, a Judge in King County held that the victims can sue Snohomish County, but only for John Pennington’s failure to mitigate loss of human life.
The Gold Bar Reporters will be video taping the Oso Mudslides trial feeding it live on U Tube.
John Pennington left out that while in Kelso Washington he worked for a coffee company and stole coffee grinding equipment to start the “Timber Coffee Company.”
Somewhere in between being admitted to Vanderbilt College for two semesters and stealing coffee grinding equipment from his previous employer, John Pennington left out of his deposition testimony the fact that he was permanently suspended from college for raping a female student and drunkenness.
But hey, are those really important facts in the scheme of killing 43 people?
In his deposition John Pennington stated ” I don’t recall” over 147 times, and admitted that he had no knowledge nor training in mudslides. Our readers should note that Snohomish County Washington is the number one county in the United States for mudslides.
Pennington also stated in his deposition ” I was just the Director” leaving us open government supporters on the ground laughing ourselves to death.
Public records (emails) retrieved under RCW 42.56 ( Washington State’s Public Records Act), illustrates that John Pennington’s only emergency management concern was that of floods. At last count, his deposition testimony included the term “floods” over 10o times, but he did admit that he had no training nor knowledge of mudslides.
Public emails also document the only mitigation John Pennington performed while employed as Director of Emergency Management was to receive emails from the federal government about flood stages/levels and forward those same emails off to higher ups in the County government.
Along with Snohomish County taxpayers paying for his fraudulent online degrees, John Pennington soaked the taxpayers out of $150,000,00.00 per year for his welfare check.

See PenningtonDep
So the playing I’m not responsible went out the door when John Lovick issued sole responsibility back to you in January 2014 Mr Pennington. Rest assured that it will give us great pleasure to video tape your testimony in the Oso mudslide trial.
In September 2015 the Gold Bar Reporters published “From FEMA to Snohomish County Washington, dark secrets unearthed.” More facts John Pennington left out below.
Neither Snohomish County or John E Pennington have never denied any of the articles we posted. We stand by our articles are being ” right on target.” John Pennington is being sued for racketeering in US Federal District with depositions expected to start in November 2016.
From FEMA to Snohomish County Washington, dark secrets unearthed. Gold Bar Reporters were the first to report on John E. Pennington’s criminal conduct, a small portion of our report is outlined below
John E. Pennington, only suspect in rape of 5 year old child from Cowlitz County, Washington; also kicked out of a San Diego church for molesting two boys during a church camping trip
We’ve been investigating John Pennington’s past thirty years on this planet for over seven years. ( our readers can note the address of 11 Front St, Issaquah, Washington, is the same address for the law firm of Kenyon Disend. Kenyon is a racketeering defendant and assisted John Pennington in covering up the rape of a 5 year old girl from Cowlitz County Washington in 1993).
We never thought we’d get to this point, finally uncovering why John E. Pennington has been so desperately trying to hide hs past. Well it’s simple, he’s a pedophile ( who enjoys taking naked showers with little girls, molested two boys ) and a wife beater, and once the feds learned the truth he was terminated from FEMA.
John Pennington is a sociopath; and how he met an attorney named Michael Kenyon who helped Johnny cover up his rape of a five year old child from Cowlitz County.
Well documented in our past stories https://goldbarreporter.org/2015/04/04/attorney-michael-kenyons-dirty-bag-of-secrets-part-ii/
What John Pennington was trying to hide for so many years, his prior conviction for criminal harassment ( assault of an ex-fiancé in Oregon) as noted in the following public records as “ prior conviction”
In 2000, John Pennington was George Bush Jr’s campaign manager here in Washington State. Soon after George Bush Jr. was elected ( or stole the election with his brother’s assistance depending what you believe), George Jr. appointed John E Pennington and Michael Browne to positions inside FEMA. Sadly for America, not one FEMA Director was qualified for such positions.
As a result of Michael Browne and John Pennington’s inability to read, write and think effectively caused thousands of minority deaths in Hurricane Katrina.
Hurricane Katrina was an eye opener for those of us who actually earned accredited degrees and whose parents taught us to think critically. George W Bush Jr.’s decision to appoint friends instead of educated and skilled people resulted in massive human loss of life In New Orleans.
Had this story ended in New Orleans, we wouldn’t be exposing John E.Pennington today. But it didn’t, why is simple, because Washington State Senator Jennifer Dunn decided to use her political clout to appoint an uneducated bum to FEMA Region 10 ( Pacific Northwest).
What is even crazier is that George W Bush made an executive appointment without ever running a single background check on John Pennington prior to appointing him.
All that changed when America started calling for Michael Brownie’s head for causing so many deaths in New Orleans. Perhaps Michael Browne might have survived press scrutiny had he not put in his email that was heading to Nordstroms to purchase new clothes for the cameras, while at the same time thousands of African Americans were floating down the street or in lock down inside an unsafe convention center.
African Americans were drowning in the streets of New Orleans, because FEMA Directors lacked basic college skills to handle such a disaster. In the case of Michael Browne, an unaccredited undergraduate degree as well as unaccredited law school diploma. In the case of John Pennington, an online diploma mill degree from an online school the U.S. Dept of Education said sold online diplomas at a flat rate, California Coastal College.
Hurricane Katrina, good bye Brownie, Hello Penny
After Michael Browne and Bernard Kerik made a laughing stock out of the George W and America, George Jr was quoted as saying ‘ Penny will make a great director of FEMA.”This was November 2005. But this time, the feds actually ran an extensive background on John Pennington, and discovered what we learned through years of sifting through public records. John Pennington is a dangerous sociopath with real anger management issues; anger he often takes out on women and children.
In 2005, Michael Browne was blamed for the deaths of thousands, because he was appointed to a position that he wasn’t qualified for. So when George Jr. had to make a new appointment to FEMA Director, he looked to a devil ( pedophile) wrapping himself with pages of the Bible, while at the same time molesting children and violently assaulting a pregnant woman in her third trimester, John E. Pennington.
For those reporting the news in Washington D.C just after George Bush Jr’s FEMA Directors caused so much misery to so many residents and their survivors in New Orleans, Bush Jr. was quoted as saying ” Penny would make a great Director.”
Because the feds didn’t want George Jr. to go through yet another scathing news story like he did when he chose Kerik to head Homeland Security (who ended up being prime suspect in a murder case and had direct ties to organized crime) and Michael Browne and his fake degrees with extensive skills in horse breeding debacles, any appointment would go through extensive background checks prior to Congressional Hearings.
As a result of the feds extensive background check on John Pennington, he was forced to resign from FEMA or be exposed in a very public way.
We recently reviewed Pennington’s deposition taken in the Oso mudslide litigation and noted John Pennington lied about his termination from FEMA stating that he moved from FEMA to Snohomish County without interruption. This was just one of many lies John Pennington made in his deposition.
John Pennington was terminated from FEMA because the feds learned what we reported on over the last seven years; pedophilia deviant uneducated child abuser who has sick fetish for kids, John Pennington. A sociopath who reminds me of Ted Bundy.
Unfortunately for Oso Washington residents, George W Bush Jr.’s administration thought it was ok to set him loose on Snohomish County residents just so George Jr didn’t have to suffer public press embarassment again.
On March 24, 2014, John Pennington caused 43 residents in Oso Washington to suffocate to death in Washington State’s most preventable loss of life natural disaster. Instead of mitigating loss to human life, John Pennington worked on his fraudulent online diploma, operated his personal business on the County’s dime and while using county resources and staff, violently assaulted children and women, and criminally harassed me right from Snohomish County Offices operating an online blog ” The Sky Valley Chronicle. “An online blog owned by Aaron Reardon but operated by Gold Bar’s Mayor Crystal Hill ( nee Berg who plead guilty to bank fraud in 2005), John Pennington, and Gold Bar’s former Mayor Joe Beavers.
I believe John Pennington should be charged with negligent homicide for the 43 people he killed in the Oso mudslides.
Since John E. Pennington killed 43 Oso residents in the mudslides, we have searched his travel records and beleive he is responsible for missing children in four different states, and have ample evidence to state John Pennington is the man responsbile for the rape of that five year old child from Colwitz County Washington.
Sadly, John Pennington remains on the loose up here in Snohomis County. So long as John Pennington remains on the loose, I will continue to investigate and report on his criminal sexual deviant conduct.
Protecting Our children from a sociopath like John Pennington is worth every sacrifice we’ve made as a result of shinning much needed sunshine on cockroaches who harm molest and abuse our kids.
Our Children’s mental well being has no price tag. I agree with Hillary Clinton “ it takes a village to raise children.”
John Pennington’s trial in the Oso mudslide debacle will be live streamed by the Gold Bar Reporters starting in June 2016. Stay tuned, it will be our pleasure to bring it “live” to our followers.
John Pennington also bragged that he had a log book whereas high ranking political officials would write down their feelings in a log book after having sex with animals at Echo Lake. “John Pennington is a sick bastard!”
