Washington State Revised law reads:
RCW 40.16.010, Injury to public record.
Ignorantia juris non excusat
( source Wikipedia, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ignorantia_juris_non_excusat )
Ignorantia juris non excusat or ignorantia legis neminem excusat (Latin for “ignorance of the law excuses not” and “ignorance of law excuses no one” respectively) is a legal principle holding that a person who is unaware of a law may not escape liability for violating that law merely because he or she was unaware of its content.
If ignorance of the law is not a defense for non-lawyers, it should never be a defense for attorneys
But hey wait, Washington State’s Attorney General’s dream team of lawyers from Christie Law Group had already been cited for the same criminal conduct of destroying records. Intentional destruction, you be the judge.
Snohomish County Daily Herald reporters Noah Haglund and Scott North appear to be doing a little less brown nosing with Snohomish County Prosecutors’ these days, in favor of subjective news reporting.
Attorney General Bob Ferguson
On August 24, 2016, Scott North and Noah Haglund published an article that the Washington State Attorney General’s Office was intentionally destroying evidence in the Oso mudslide trials. However, what Scott North and Noah Haglund failed to tell Snohomish County readers was that several prosecutors, Sara Di Vittorio and Miquel Tempski, were moved from Washington State Attorney General’s Office to Snohomish County’s prosecutors office to help conceal public records involving the man solely responsible for the Oso mudslide , John E Pennington.
Sara Di Vittorio ( also dubbed as Sister Sara by the Gold Bar Reporters) in 2014 appeared at open public meeting in Olympia telling the Washington State Legislature ” We’re out of money to protect county workers under the Public Records Act.”
Oh yes, Sister Sara, w all know how expensive it is when government deceives and commits crimes against it’s people.” But wait, isn’t your job monitored by the WSBA mandating that you not commit crimes? Or did you not know that tampering with public records in Washington is a felony.
Now, because of the Attorney General’s conduct captured so nicely by the Oso plaintiff’s attorneys, we now know what Sister Sara Di Vittorio was referring to, also known as tampering with public records to reduce liability.
John E Pennington is the sole person responsible for mitigation in the Oso mudslides, but instead of doing his job, John Pennington operated his own company using county government staff, sexually harassed employees, spent enormous time searching on Match.com for extramarital affairs, caught hacking via public records, violently assaulted his ex-wives, and criminally harassed his opponents on a website he set up with disgraced former Executive Aaron Reardon titled ” The Sky Valley Chronicle.”
The Sky Valley Chronicle and John Pennington are being sued for racketeering in US Federal District with depositions expected to start in early 2017. In 2016, the Gold Bar Reporter was first to break the story on John Pennington’s criminal conduct as outlined below:
Also, John Pennington’s forth wife Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg, convicted of bank fraud in North Carolina in 2000 and in Snohomish County in 2005) are being sued for Racketeering in US Federal Court with a new Racketeering and a lawsuit just in time for 2017.
From FEMA to Snohomish County Washington and now to Pierce College ( Tacoma Washington diploma mill), 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
MEET JOHN ‘ THEODORE TED BUNDY” PENNINGTON
John Pennington was a troubled youth who, according to one source “had a major drug problem by the age of 16.” So it’s no surprise that in the late 1980’s, after being kicked out of Vanderbilt College in Tennessee after raping a female college student, John Pennington moved to a small suburban city just outside of San Diego California.
While in the San Diego area, John Pennington meets his new victim, who believe he legally married, so are calling her ex-wife # 1, Carla M.
Two years later, John Pennington fled from Southern California, again heading home to Nashville, only after two small boys made allegations of sexual abuse against him while on a church camping trip.
While in Tennessee, John Pennington made an unsuccessful run for an open State Rep. seat. After a landslide loss for Pennington, he again headed west. This time to Oregon where Pennington meets his next victim.
Mr. Pennington plead guilty to criminal assault 1 and harassment ( Washington County Case # D911027SC made to pay restitution) after he hospitalized his fiancé in Oregon.
As a result, John Pennington fled from Oregon to Vancouver Washington. While in Vancouver Washington, John Pennington meets his next victim. Sadly, they soon married.
While working in a coffee delivery business, John Pennington stole coffee grinding equipment from his previous employer and used this equipment to start-up a coffee shop in Kelso. Purpose was to make it look like he was an entrepreneur ( but he is really a sociopath) as to grab an uncontested Republican seat in Cowlitz County.
It worked, the uneducated college dropout John Pennington managed to get elected to an uncontested WA House of Representatives seat. Unfortunately for residents in New Orleans and Oso Washington, he met a powerful Washington State Republican leader, Jennifer Dunn.
In 1992, a 5-year-old girl was kidnapped, raped, and then tossed along a Cowlitz County road like a piece of trash. We sent our private investigators to Cowlitz County to talk with the lead Detective who confirmed the following facts:
John Pennington became one of two prime suspects for the following reasons:
(1) Pennington operated a coffee delivery route within six blocks of where the child was dumped after being raped; (2) he drove the same car; (3) he was in the area at the time of the child rape and could not explain his whereabouts; (4) his picture from 1992 is a complete match to the child and witness sketch drawing of the pedophile; (5) he relentlessly convinced his ex-wife to call the police attempting to divert attention away from himself and onto another man; and ( 6) He has continuous and countless charges of child and spousal abuse, a man who cannot keep his hands to himself.
Below is the press release as it relates to John E. Pennington’s rape of a 5 year old girl from Cowlitz County Washington
Unfortunately for the 5 year child, John Pennington meets a Kelso Washington city attorney named Michael Kenyon.
According to John Pennington’s divorce files he is also an abuser of prescription pills, and was detained at the US Mexico for having narcotics ( non-prescription pain pills) on his person while coming back into the US. Pennington has never denied this allegation.
In 1995, John Pennington was also a member of the Washington State Militia, a group dedicated to over throwing the United States government. ” John sat around for years obsessed about getting even with the Longview Washington news reporter for reporting that John was a member of the State militia.”
From 1992 to 2005, John Pennington’s violence grew with his ex-wife. # 2, Valerie. From pushing her down a flight of stairs as well as constant physical harassment, John Pennington never learned to keep his hands to himself.
But the case that raised our eyebrows is Mr. Pennington’s abuse on his ex-wife # 2 ( who is really ex-wife # 3) Anne Laughlin. Ms. Laughlin was a City of Duvall city council member at the time of Pennington’s assault of Anne. Anne was three weeks away from giving birth to her daughter when Pennington violently assaulted, kicked and punched Anne in the stomach and uterus. A real salt of the earth kind of man.
Since Ms. Laughlin was a Duvall city council member at the time, the City of Duvall sought a Special Prosecutor. The prosecutor assigned to prosecute wife beater John Pennington came from the law firm where Pennington’s buddy Michael Kenyon was employed.
In 2009 when Pennington assaulted Laughlin, this was his third domestic violence charge. This should have amounted to jail time for Pennington.
A close review of John Pennington’s Snohomish County travel records warrant a closer look into missing children in Washington, Alaska, Maryland. Public monies allowed us to review his credit card receipts, telephone records, etc. information that another blogger turned over to authorities.
Any grown man that takes a shower with a six year old little girl is a pedophile.
In 2011, Kenyon Disend’s junior attorney, Ann Marie Soto, received an email from John Pennington via Snohomish County computers demanding that Kenyon Disend redact police reports involving John Pennington criminal harassment and assault that we requested under RCW 42.56. There’s only one problem, at the time Pennington was communicating with Kenyon Disend’s attorney, he was not a City of Duvall employee thus no attorney client relationship existed.
We sought the advice of an expert in records issues who is of the opinion that Kenyon Disend’s redaction of police reports was not permissible under the Public Records Act.
Then a source close to ex # 2 ( or # 3 depending on what public records you believe as it relates to Pennington’s aliases) provided us with thousands of records relating to John Pennington, and those records included Pennington’s email communication with Duvall’s Mayor about how to get Pennington’s soon to be ex-wife Anne Laughlin off the City Council.
In 2009, Pennington then used Aaron Reardon’s connection to the Seattle Times reporter ( who then became Reardon’s aide) to post a story about Anne Laughlin, pretty much the same way he did to Gold Bar Reporters in February 2012. Former Seattle Times reporter Emily Heffner was contacted for comment but all she would say is ” you need to move because they are coming after you.” She never did state who “they” were, but as we stated to Ms. Heffner before, “We have only one live to give and it shall be for the betterment of our society as a whole.”
As of today, Attorney Michael Kenyon and Ann Marie Soto have bilked the taxpayers of Gold Bar over $1,350,000.00 hidng former Mayor Crystal Hill’s public records ( emails) documenting that she was practicing law without a license, and had lied on her F 1 form stating that she had never pled guilty to fraud when in fact she had plead guilty twice, one in 2000 in North Carolina and a second time in Snohomish County Washington; and John Pennington making racist comments about President Obama and running illegal ACCESS background checks in violation of RCW 10.97.
Both Penningtons are being sued for gross 1983 and RICO charges with depositions expected to start early next year.
The bigger question that Michael Kenyon refused to answer was what he gained for quashing John Pennington’s criminal charges for beating up his pregnant wife Anne, hiding John Pennington’s racist comments and his illegal background checks.
According to former Mayor Joe Beavers, John Pennington and Aaron Reardon “fixed” cases in Snohomish County Superior Court.
As a result of our six-year investigation, we are confident to report that attorney Michael Kenyon assisted John Pennington is committing felonies. Attorney Michael Kenyon and John Pennington will be sharing a prison cell together and we intend to make that happen even it takes me another 30 years, and I will continue to request access to public records and file suits against any agency that renders assistance to a pedophile and wife beater.
The spoliation inference is a negative evidentiary inference that a finder of fact can draw from a party’s destruction of a document or thing that is relevant to an ongoing or reasonably foreseeable civil or criminal proceeding: the finder of fact can review all evidence uncovered in as strong a light as possible against the spoliator and in favor of the opposing party.
The theory of the spoliation inference is that when a party destroys evidence, it may be reasonable to infer that the party had “consciousness of guilt” or other motivation to avoid the evidence. Therefore, the fact finder may conclude that the evidence would have been unfavorable to the spoliator. Some jurisdictions have recognized a spoliation tort action, which allows the victim of destruction of evidence to file a separate tort action against a spoliator.
For more information on Spoliation see Wikipedia at
I say subjective news reporting because Scott North and Noah Haglund have ample evidence as stated herein but only seem interested in reporting on Attorney General Bob Fergusson’s criminal conduct.
But NBC and CBS appear to be investigating John Pennington …. Stay tuned as John Pennington’s criminal conduct is about to become very public.
Hugs and kisses Linda Eide and Lin O’Dell as Your little racketeering outfit also known as the Washington State Bar is about to be abolished and we have a child/ wife abuser named John E. Pennington and his bank frauding wife Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg, convicted of bank fraud 2000 and 2005), who, in a roundabout way, helped make that happen.
When the 9th Circuit issues a remand order on Scannell’s case were going to throw a ” reformed Washington State Bar ” party at the Redhook Brewery. When the City of Gold Bar is forced to released the CD involving John E. Pennington illegal dissemination of personal identifying information he received via email from the Washington State Bar ( in an effort to discredit me), the City of Gold Bar will have a new recreation facility titled ” In honor of Open Government, donated by Gold Bar activist Anne Block, who believes that government should favor people over profits.”
One question for Scott North and Noah Haglund ” Where in the World is Waldo?” My source inside Pierce College says ‘ in Virginia tying to get a political appointment. ”
Respondeat superior (Latin: “let the master answer”; plural: respondeant superiores) is a US legal doctrine which states that, in many circumstances, an employer is responsible for the actions of employees performed within the course of their employment.
The way I view Bob Ferguson’s actions, he’s responsible. The Rules of Professional Conduct also make Bob Ferguson responsible for the conduct of those he supervises.
But those silly rules are only applied against those who criticize the Washington State Bar Association. Gross violations of Sherman Anti-Trust, felonious conduct. By the time our investigation is over, the feds will have people in handcuffs inside the Washington State Bar just as they did to the Arizona Bar a few years back.
