Gold Bar public records reveal criminal conspiracy

In late November 2017, a Snohomish County insider called and said ” Ann Marie Soto and Shannon Ragonesi met with one of your witnesses in your federal suit.  In exchange for turning on you,  the witness wanted her criminal conviction and outstanding warrant for animal abuse to be dismissed…”

This bribery scheme in exchange for trying to get the Gold Bar Reporter charged with a crime. However, the witness had nothing of value to give them, but attorney Shannon Ragonesi and Ann Marie Soto did offer to help the witness try to get obtain a restraining order against the Gold Bar Reporter as they did with John Pennington and Crystal Hill Pennington ( read below).

What my readers should know is that the witness described above tried to extort the Gold Bar Reporter into giving her money and a car during the summer of 2017,  and lied time and time again about having cancer ( to obtain donations), as such, the Gold Bar Reporter cut all ties with her. A bigger problem for the co-conspirators is the witness has outstanding warrant for her arrest and is a convicted criminal, while the Gold Bar Reporter has no criminal history whatsoever.

Attorney Shannon Ragonesi has been sanctioned by judges all over the US for lying on court documents and filing frivolous motions. https://abovethelaw.com/2013/04/city-gets-benchslap-with-a-rolled-up-newspaper-over-dead-dog/

 

Ms. Ragonesi’s main contractor is the Association of Washington Cities ( a for profit company violating Sherman Anti-Trust laws), and she brags that she can fix any case because of her personal involvement with the WSBA and Judges like Jeffrey Ramsdalle, Judge Beth Andrus and Richard Okrent.

More on Association of Washington Cities crimes against taxpayers soon.  But a good read on AWC’s felonious crimes against taxpayers was outlined in link below:

Public monies, resources, and attorneys, are used, such meetings and records as a result of that meeting, become public records

While in law school, I often ran into kids whose mommy and daddy spent hundreds of thousands of  dollars supporting them through law school.  Kids who had absolutely nothing of value to add to classes, and who would drop a class when the professor demanded Socratic in person, in class debate.

I remember thinking, ” oh boy, this kid next to me has no idea how to effectively communicate and has no common sense. As a nation, we’re in trouble.”


Kenyon Disend, crimes against Gold Bar taxpayers 

In 1992, Michael Kenyon, a Kelso Washington city attorney, met John E. Pennington, who according to a source, was introduced to him by Senator Jennifer Dunn. John E. Pennington, a transporting of narcotics, from Kelso to Bellingham ( where he met coffee Barista Lori Batiot, aka Hoffer/Harris), using his coffee supply company.  Transportation of narcotics usually comes with a price, aka criminal charges, so John E Pennington saw an uncontested Washington State House of Representative Seat, and decided to run.

At the time he ran for office, John E. Pennington was the only suspect in the rape and kidnapping and attempted murder of a five year girl in Cowlitz County.  In 2013, Cowlitz County lead detective Maurice Saxon said ” John Pennington is the man who raped that girl, and I have been following him since.”

From my past articles, noting that I have never been sued, my readers can piece together why Michael Kenyon and his associate Ann Marie Soto are so eager to protect John E. Pennington. So much so, that last week after requesting access to City of Duvall public records over five years ago, the City of Duvall finally released emails documenting that John E Pennington, a citizen of Duvall, was allowed to participate in whether or not a police report ( involving John Pennington) was in fact public under Washington State’s Public Records Act.

Subject: Pennington PRR: Simple Missed redaction

 Ms. Soto and Commander Hert.

 On the incident report stamped Jun 18 @2:02 (SGT Sanders) there is a single missed redaction.  Paragraph one of the narrative beginning with “On June 12 [redacted]…” has my name redacted throughout, HOWEVER there is a missed redaction where my name appears in full in the last paragraph. 

 My name is redacted under RCW 42.56.240 / 10.97.080 everywhere else, so this is a simple miss that needs to be corrected prior to any release to ensure consistency.

 Thank you.

Good afternoon, Ms. Soto.

 I am following up to see if you have received my time sensitive request below, regarding the single missed redaction I brought to your attention this morning, prior to the releasing of any documents to Ms. Block. 

 Of importance is that this particular document actually should fall under the domain of exemption of non-conviction criminal information and should not be released at all.  It is clearly part of a larger single file (City of Duvall CR007663D and CR007664D, dismissed with prejudice May 28, 2009) that is within that exemption and easily manages to identify me as part of that particular case that meets the exemption. 

 Irrespective, however, is that the document still contains my fully identifiable first and last name, where other sections of that document redact it, clearly violating privacy concerns under the RCW 42.56.240 and RCW 10.97.080 as identified elsewhere in the documents.

 Thank you!

 John E. Pennington


Mr. Pennington,

 

The City made the redaction you mentioned below prior to release to Ms. Block.  The redactions were made in compliance with the Public Records Act, the Criminal Records Privacy Act and Bainbridge Island Police Guild v. City of Puyallup and the City considers this matter now closed.  Thank you.

John Pennington’s criminal assault of a 3rd trimester pregnant Duvall City Council woman was NOT DISMISSED with prejudice because the Gold Bar Reporter obtained a copy of the May 29, 2009 audio from the hearing. The hearing confirmed my previous story; https://goldbarreporter.org/tag/sandra-meadowcraft/

Obvious questions like who tipped of non-City of Duvall employee John Pennington that the Gold Bar Reporter requested criminal reports involving him? Why would a City attorney violate the Public Records Act ( a felony in Washington State to conceal records) when in fact Our Supreme Court already held that police reports are not ” redactable” ?

Besides the fact that John E Pennington, a man diagnosed as a sociopath by King County Dr. Hedricks, John Pennington was being charged with violently assaulting a 3rd trimester pregnant Duvall Washington City Council-woman, is giving City of Gold Bar/Kenyon Disend attorney Ann Marie Soto and Duvall Police Chief Cary Hert demands to “redact” his name from police reports. Of even more interest to me is that the fact that the email’s metadata documents that John Pennington and Ann Marie have a ‘private chat room” with 20 other members, operating from the law firm of Kenyon Disend.

Soto

Ann Marie Soto is a contract attorney for the City of Gold Bar, employed by Kenyon Disend.  Keep in mind the above email string is related to a police report filed against John Pennington for domestic abuse in in Duvall, Washington.

In 2016, after having ample evidence that attorney Michael Kenyon is guilty of racketeering, and countless land scams inside North Bend and Cle Elm Washington, the Gold Bar Reporter published a story titled ” Michael Kenyon’s Dirty Bag of Secrets, Part II.”

Click – https://goldbarreporter.org/2015/04/04/attorney-michael-kenyons-dirty-bag-of-secrets-part-ii/

After attorney Ann Marie Soto was caught via public records conspiring to harm the Gold Bar Reporter, she was sued for racketeering, has been basically constructively demoted to a public records officer at the law firm of Kenyon Disend, and virtually unemployable( outside of Kenyon Disend) as a result.

Perhaps this is the main reason why Ms. Soto is trying to fight her way out of a paper bag by conspiring with convicted criminals on November 20, 2017.  Sadly, Ms. Soto placed her criminal racketeering crimes against the Gold Bar Reporter inside Gold Bar public records.


two is company, three’s a crowd

Trupin

As a feminist,  Rachel Turpin’s above picture is highly offensive, especially coming from a woman who works for Michael Kenyon ( Kenyon Disend), who has never promoted a female inside his office other than his first year law school graduate daughter.

From July 2016 to April 23, 2017, John Pennington also received criminal racketeering assistance from another Kenyon Disend’s attorney, Rachel Turpin. Public records from the City of Duvall document that attorney Rachel Turpin represented the City of Duvall in a law suit filed for access to public records.

When public money is being used, every single record received, obtained, reviewed, edited, created, sent is a public record.

In July 2016, John E Pennington ( terminated from FEMA and Snohomish County for conduct unbecoming of a public officer) and Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg, convicted of bank fraud 2000, 2005, North Carolina and Snohomish County, respectively) walked into Pierce County District Court attempting to obtain a prior restraint against the Gold Bar Reporter’s investigation and exposé on publication of their countless  racketeering crimes.

Remember, Rachel Turpin works for Kenyon Disend providing legal services to the City of Duvall.  When attempting to obtain a prior restraint against the Gold Bar Reporter, John Pennington made an attempt to serve the Gold Bar Reporter while the reporter was out of the country.  Unable to serve, John Pennington and Crystal Hill Pennington contacted Kenyon Disend/Duvall city attorney Rachel Turpin to lend a hand to the criminal racketeering Enterprise attempts to perfect service.

In early October 2016, the Gold Bar Reporter received court issued subpoenas to depose two Brady Cops ( law enforcement employees) from Duvall, Washington, Shelley Rowe and Lori Batiot.  Rachel Turpin decided the best way to handle this was to get the Gold Bar Reporter charged with violating a restraining order. However, she needed to get the Gold Bar Reporter served.

On October 12, 2016, Rachel  Turpin sent the Gold Bar Reporter an email asking if she would be wiling to hold deposition of Duvall officers inside Duvall Washington’s police department.  The Gold Bar Reporter set depositions on October 16, 2016.

In July of 2016, attorney Rachel Turpin wrote the Gold Bar Reporter stating ” I will no longer communicate with you via email only by USPS.”   So what changed in October 2016 that Rachel Turpin all of the sudden communicated via email?

It’s called racketeering and conspiracy. 

On October 26, 2016, John E Pennington walked into Pierce County District Court to obtain a prior restraint on free speech against the Gold Bar Reporter.  The Judge assigned was Pro Tem Judge Chen Weller.  Ms. Weller is a high ranking member with the Washington State Bar Association ( WSBA).  Public email from Snohomish County Washington confirm beyond any shadow of a doubt that lead WSBA Office of Disciplinary Counsel attorney Linda Eide was assisting John Pennington, with conspiring to harm the Gold Bar’s WSBA license.  As a result, the WSBA, Linda Eide, John and Crystal Hill Pennington are being sued for racketeering… a new suit is on its way for 2018.

Judge Weller was asked by Linda Eide to “pull one for the team and give John E Pennington and Crystal Hill Pennington a restraining order.”  On  October 26, 2016, Judge Chen Weller, at the bequest of WSBA lead attorney Linda Eide, obtained a forged court order ( see below) and issued a temporary restraining order against the Gold Bar Reporter.  Why, is something that I didn’t know until the Washington State Patrol  released public records.

On October 10, 2016, John Pennington forged a court order and managed to get his friend to put his forgery inside the NCIC, LlNYX and ACCESS databases weeks prior to obtaining Judge Chen Weller’s signature.  Once Snohomish County and Kenyon Disend became aware of John and Crystal Hill Pennington’s forgery scheme, the Enterprise requested and received the assistance of Peirce County Judge Chen Weller to sign the order, thus trying to cover up the fact that Penningtons’ forged court order was already placed inside NCIC weeks prior to Judge Chen Weller signed it. Racketeering.

The Gold Bar Reporter sued the Judge and Pierce County settled the suit and vacated Penningtons’ forged court order for fraud ( see below).

This brings me back to why all of the sudden Duvall city attorney Rachel Turpin was so desperate to get me to hold depositions inside the City of Duvall police station. Ms. Turpin knew that the Penningtons’ had already managed to get a Brady Cop to enter his forged court order into the NCIC, LlYNX, and ACCESS data bases on October 10, 2016.  Ms. Turpin’s goal was to get the Gold Bar Reporter charged with violating the forged restraining order, an order that until recently, the Gold Bar Reporter had no idea was placed into NCIC, ACCESS weeks prior to having a judge sign it.

John and Crystal Hill Pennington’s forgery was nicely outlined in my past reports below. Both John and Crystal Hill Pennington are being sued for racketeering.

Pierce College, Tacoma, instructor, caught forging court record

penny

John E. Pennington, terminated from FEMA and Snohomish County for conduct unbecoming of a public officer, now caught forging documents with Pierce County District Court


 

John E. Pennington, an instructor with Pierce College,  caught forging a court record last week in Tacoma, Washington.

It all started when the Gold Bar Reporter did what we’re supposed to do as a journalist, contacted him for comment about an upcoming article involving his false academic credentials.  Credentials John Pennington placed into public records at Pierce College, fraudulently obtaining a teaching position, a crime in Washington State.

RCW 9A.60.070

False academic credentials—Unlawful issuance or use—Definitions—Penalties.

(1) A person is guilty of issuing a false academic credential if the person knowingly
(a) Grants or awards a false academic credential or offers to grant or award a false academic credential in violation of this section;
(b) Represents that a credit earned or granted by the person in violation of this section can be applied toward a credential offered by another person;
(c) Grants or offers to grant a credit for which a representation as described in (b) of this subsection is made; or
(d) Solicits another person to seek a credential or to earn a credit the person knows is offered in violation of this section.
(2) A person is guilty of knowingly using a false academic credential if the person knowingly uses a false academic credential or falsely claims to have a credential issued by an institution of higher education that is accredited by an accrediting association recognized as such by rule of the student achievement council:
(a) In a written or oral advertisement or other promotion of a business; or
(b) With the intent to:
(i) Obtain employment;
(ii) Obtain a license or certificate to practice a trade, profession, or occupation;
(iii) Obtain a promotion, compensation or other benefit, or an increase in compensation or other benefit, in employment or in the practice of a trade, profession, or occupation;
(iv) Obtain admission to an educational program in this state; or
(v) Gain a position in government with authority over another person, regardless of whether the person receives compensation for the position.
(3) The definitions in this subsection apply throughout this section and RCW 28B.85.220.
(5) Knowingly using a false academic credential is a gross misdemeanor.

According to Pierce College, Tacoma,  John E. Pennington did fraudulently use false Academic credentials to obtain a position at the College by falsely submitting that he has accredited college degrees.

pennington-pierce-county-2

pierce-college-penny-credentials

John E. Pennington did knowingly falsify his academic credentials to Pierce College to obtain a employment, and is guilty of this crime as well.  

 



 

 

In 2005, the Seattle Times published a story about John Pennington’s academic school of choice correctly stating the IRS held that California Coastal College ( John E. Pennington’s online school of choice) sold degrees at a flat rate.”

See http://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/local-fema-chief-had-little-disaster-experience/

False fraudulent academic diplomas managed to slip by former Executive Aaron Reardon ( who the Gold Bar Reporter proudly got rid of as the criminal harasser he is as evidenced by the Snohomish County Herald’s Feb 13, 2013 article http://201-dhwebvarnish.newscyclecloud.com/article/20130214/NEWS01/702149999 ) inside Snohomish County’s Emergency Management too.

This  contributed to the deaths (Black’s law dictionary, negligent homicide equates to killing) of 43 people in the Oso mudslides disaster. Had Snohomish County had an educated person at the helm of Emergency Management, 43 people would more than likely be alive today.

King County’s Major Crimes Unit public records document that Aaron Reardon’s executive officers had so much time on their hands to post defamatory articles on a website the trio set up titled ” The Sky Valley Chronicle” – a website to control the political message in the Sky Valley ( Monroe to Index).

John E. Pennington’s wife Crystal Hill Pennington was anonymously cyber-stalking anyone who dared question Aaron Reardon’s gang of thieves. Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe Beavers admitted under oath a deposition two weeks ago that he too was cyber-stalking people on the Sky Valley Chronicle.

Crystal Hill Pennington’s deposition is scheduled for December 6, 2016, and an update will follow.

Now this, Pierce College Trustees hired a man with fake credentials who killed 43 people, beats on women and abuses our kids?  What the hell  is going on inside Washington State that a man who has harmed so many people is allowed to fraud our future leaders?

Our kids deserve much more, as such, the Gold Bar Reporter filed a complaint against Pierce College, Tacoma, with the U.S. Department of Education as this is fraud.

In 2013, John E. Pennington, a resident of Duvall, Washington, applied for a position on the Duvall Washington Library Board. Pennington’s application was rejected, the basis according to the Board Chair  ” he had no respect for the First Amendment.”

So its no surprise that once we started investigating John E. Pennington false credentials by requesting access to public records at Pierce College ( RCW 42.56), John E. Pennington committed more fraud, but this time on Pierce College’s dime.

On October 24, 2016, a forged Snohomish County Process of Service paper was filed by Penningtons whiting it out ( forgery)  knowingly falsely filing an instrument with a public office.

On October 27, 2016, John E. Pennington appeared in front of Pierce County District Court ( where he nor his wife resides), sworn in captured on video camera, falsely certifying under oath that he served the Gold Bar Reporter with his petition for restraining order  ( prior restraint on free speech prohibited in the U.S.), attempting to SLAPP down the Gold Bar Reporter’s message.

A First Amendment lawyer stated ” Prior Restraints on free speech in America are considered a violation of my civil rights.”

According to the Snohomish County Sherriff’s Office, John E. Pennington forged the original document, and the unforged document delivered to John Pennington is this one:

casey-original

After John E.Pennington forged the document:

10-14

rowexhibitnewimprovedversion_page_1

SLAPP suits carry a $10, 0000.00per offense penalty.  An issue we suspect John E. Pennington could care less about as public records document that he cant pay his mortgage, so what’s a judgment for $50K?

Congrads to Pierce College, Tacoma, Washington, not only did the Board of Trustees hire a child/wife abuser, they also hired a man now guilty of perjury and forgery.

The Gold Bar Reporter filed a new complaint in King County seeking damages, and a Writ and Injunction ordering Pierce County off this case as not one person John Pennington fraudulently obtained a restraining order against lives in Pierce County.

The Gold Bar Reporter is seeking an additional $50,000.00 from the marital community of the Crystal Hill and John E. Pennington’s for severe emotional distress.

Late yesterday, we learned that Pierce County District  ” vacated” the restraining order and there is a criminal felony investigation under way against John E. Pennington and Crystal Hill Pennington (convicted of bank fraud,2005, 2000) and the case will be transferred to King County ( where according to the documents below, John E. Pennington has had countless criminal harassment complaints against him in King County).

John E. Pennington is the same political appointee who the Seattle Times quoted as saying Washington State’s largest slide area was “Considered very safe.”

As the Seattle Times reporter Mike Cater ( also the reporter who reported on Pennington fake academic credentials) wrote “It was considered very safe,” Pennington said. “This was a completely unforeseen slide. This came out of nowhere.”

John Pennington’s statements about the Oso mudslides were in complete contrast Daniel Miller, a geomorph­ologist, who wrote about Oso landslide conditions in his 1997 report for the Washington Department of Ecology and the Tulalip Tribes. Miller used reports and memos from the 1950s, 1960s, 1980s and 1990s, to support his 1997 report that the Oso area was unstable and should be evacuated.

Miller also stated that he was stunned and troubled to return to the area in 2006, to see new homes being built instead of  seeing homes being vacated.

Miller said “Frankly, I was shocked that the county permitted any building across from the river. . . It’s not unknown that this hazard exists.”

Miller contracted with the Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Forest Service in 1997.

Immediately following the Oso mudslide disaster, the Gold Bar Reporter contacted Miller asking him ” if John E. Pennington’s email showed that he ( Pennington) approved building on the Oso mudslide area, do you think he should be charged with negligent homicide?   He said ” if you have that kind of email, then Jay Inslee should order an outside agency to investigate John Pennington’s background.”  We said ” we already did… and Snohomish County was aware that John Pennington had falsified his academic  credentials and had countless abuse charges filed against him for criminal harassment and beating women. ” Miller’s voice crackled, and he sounded scared or tearful and hung up.

Obviously, Pierce College ( Tacoma) is a public agency subject to RCW 42.56, the Public Records Act.  Too bad, John Pennington’s conduct is subject to public scrutiny.

Perhaps Pennington’s next job will actually require working, preferably in private industry, so several investigative reporters and I can sleep at night.  Our children are  worthy of our efforts to protect their future to be educated by people who have real college degrees.

Once the Department of Education issues its findings in this matter, it will be posted.  Fraud like this harms all of us, and dummies down the U.S. educational system and will not go unchecked by the Gold Bar Reporter.


 

For those of my readers who haven’t read my last articles on John Pennington’s criminal history, please see below.  The Gold Bar Reporter has NEVER been sued but welcome a suit. 

Pedophile 

John Pennington, terminated for Snohomish County

 


2000px-FEMA_logo_svg

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  ( His ex filed suit for damages Washington County Case # D911027SC) after he hospitalized his fiancé in Oregon and stole items from the community.

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.

redmond-pd1_Page_1

pennington-redmond_Page_1

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.

Pages from Socipath John Pennington-2

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.

Our request for access to public records regarding this issue has already started.  The public, especially Pierce College students, have a legal right to know why Pierce College Board of Trustees would hire a child rapist and wife beater.

 



 


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.

I never really thought much of George W Bush Jr. other than he’s a spolied little rich kid who never worked for a living. For the same reason, I couldn’t vote for Al Gore in 2000. Thus, I became one of Ralph Nader’s Raiders in 2000.

Fact is that I probably ran into John Pennington at the Republican National Convention that year in Philadelphia. I, and 1,000,000. Americans blocked the entrance to the Republican National Convention Center preventing many of George Jr’s delegates from accessing the convention center that year.

I was a proud member of Massachusettes ACT UP from UMASS, and had traveled all over the U.S. protesting what I believed to be unequal treatment of economically disadvantaged Americans in favor of corporations. I’m a strong believer that America should place “ people over profits.”

Strangely, I always had respect for George Bush Sr. Why is simple: George Sr is a well educated savey free thinker who listens to his opponents. Unlike his son, George Jr. , who was given a little too much growing up without working for it.  Hard work goes along way in molding one’s self esteem.


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 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. John Pennington lied about his termination from FEMA stating that he and Tamara Doherty were caught misusing the FEMA credit cards.

This was simply a smoke screen to cover up what we just learned from a federal source over Labor Day Weekend.

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 during the fall of 2016.

As for Pierce College hiring a pedophile and wife beater, one can only say that each and everyone of the persons involved in hiring a known pedophile will now be investigated as a result.  Stay tuned, because the way I see it, the only ones who protect pedophiles and wife beaters are ones’ themselves.

 

Perhaps Pierce College needed to hire someone to teach “ How to get away with molesting and raping our kids, fraud, murder, setting up fake online newspapers to criminally harass citizens, not pay Department of Revenue taxes, failing to pay property taxes, raping college students, and beating one’s spouse” also known as Emergency Management 101 at Pierce College it appears.

 

Or perhaps it was John Pennington from an online fraudulent program Senator Tom Harkin called fraudulent on PBS’s “ Education, Inc.”  or California Coastal School that the IRS said sold online diplomas at a flat rate http://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/local-fema-chief-had-little-disaster-experience/

BEWARE students especially female students as John E. Pennington was kicked out real colleges for raping a student.


In September 2015, Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe confirmed that John Pennington is the man responsible for the rape of a five year old girl in Cowlitz County., Washington.  An insider who we have labeled as ” fed up” told the Gold Bar Reporter that Mark Roe was convinced by Snohomish County Prosecutors Sean Reay and Sara DI Vittorio ( being sued for racketeering) to hide Pennington’s criminal history to avoid liability.

 

 

 

 

 

Snohomish County Prosecutors Adam Cornell and Seth Fine stealing taxpayer monies and resources to promote Washington State Bar Association

The Washington State Bar Association is a private entity, WSBA Finances 2017 valued at $13,0000.00 annually.  According to a University of Washington law Professor ” use of county taxpayer funded Prosecutor’s is prohibited under Washington State’s Constitution.  The Washington State Bar Association cannot use prosecutors for business purposes at all…”

This begs one question for my taxpayer readers: Did the Washington State Legislature give Snohomish County Prosecutors an exception under Washington State’s Constitution and RCW ?


Adam-Cornell-hi-res

 

Snohomish County Prosecutor Adam Cornell has many skeletons in his closet, which obviously will come out just before the election.  County voters deserve a little surprise.

Let’s just say, Adam Cornell is not the wholesome honest Prosecutor his friend Scott North at the Everett Herald makes him out to be… http://www.heraldnet.com/news/deputy-prosecutor-is-a-foster-care-success-story/


corruption-power-quotes-18

 

Adam Cornell has been managing two non-profit groups with from inside the Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office, Dawson Place and Victim Support Services in spite of Washington State laws (RCW) that prohibit a prosecutor from performing any other function outside of his official Prosecutorial Duties.


RCW 36.27.020

Duties.

The prosecuting attorney shall:
(1) Be legal adviser of the legislative authority, giving it his or her written opinion when required by the legislative authority or the chairperson thereof touching any subject which the legislative authority may be called or required to act upon relating to the management of county affairs;
(2) Be legal adviser to all county and precinct officers and school directors in all matters relating to their official business, and when required draw up all instruments of an official nature for the use of said officers;
(3) Appear for and represent the state, county, and all school districts subject to the supervisory control and direction of the attorney general in all criminal and civil proceedings in which the state or the county or any school district in the county may be a party;
(4) Prosecute all criminal and civil actions in which the state or the county may be a party, defend all suits brought against the state or the county, and prosecute actions upon forfeited recognizances and bonds and actions for the recovery of debts, fines, penalties, and forfeitures accruing to the state or the county;
(5) Attend and appear before and give advice to the grand jury when cases are presented to it for consideration and draw all indictments when required by the grand jury;
(6) Institute and prosecute proceedings before magistrates for the arrest of persons charged with or reasonably suspected of felonies when the prosecuting attorney has information that any such offense has been committed and the prosecuting attorney shall for that purpose attend when required by them if the prosecuting attorney is not then in attendance upon the superior court;
(7) Carefully tax all cost bills in criminal cases and take care that no useless witness fees are taxed as part of the costs and that the officers authorized to execute process tax no other or greater fees than the fees allowed by law;
(8) Receive all cost bills in criminal cases before district judges at the trial of which the prosecuting attorney was not present, before they are lodged with the legislative authority for payment, whereupon the prosecuting attorney may retax the same and the prosecuting attorney must do so if the legislative authority deems any bill exorbitant or improperly taxed;
(9) Present all violations of the election laws which may come to the prosecuting attorney’s knowledge to the special consideration of the proper jury;
(10) Examine once in each year the official bonds of all county and precinct officers and report to the legislative authority any defect in the bonds of any such officer;
(11) Seek to reform and improve the administration of criminal justice and stimulate efforts to remedy inadequacies or injustice in substantive or procedural law;
(12) Participate in the statewide sexual assault kit tracking system established in RCW 43.43.545 for the purpose of tracking the status of all sexual assault kits connected to criminal investigations and prosecutions within the county. Prosecuting attorneys shall begin full participation in the system according to the implementation schedule established by the Washington state patrol.

Now, I have read through the above RCW’s as it relates to ” Prosecutor’s Duties” and I cannot find anywhere inside the RCW that gives Snohomish County Prosecutor the legal right to work for non-profits nor the Washington State Bar Association while being paid with taxpayers monies.
Having ample reason to believe that two Snohomish County Prosecutors, Seth Fine and Adam Cornell were also working for the Washington State Bar Association, while at the same time being paid by Snohomish County taxpayers, I requested copies of his email communication pursuant to RCW 42.56.
What I discovered was Snohomish County Prosecutors Seth Fine and Adam Cornell are misappropriating taxpayer monies teaching classes for the Washington State Bar Association while being paid by county taxpayers.

What is interesting to note here is that Snohomish County Prosecutor Seth Fine, Adam Cornell and countless other Snohomish County Prosecutors are attending CLE classes, while being paid with our county tax monies, and a Washignton Stata Bar Association legal education class is being taught by Snohomish County Prosecutor Seth Fine, during county hours, promoting the private Washington State Bar function musing our public funds.

 

If this isn’t bad enough, Snohomish County Prosecutor Seth Fine is also being paid as a hearing officer for the Washington State Bar and at the same time, Snohomish County taxpayers are writing him a check to perform private Washington State Bar Association hearing officer functions for the Washington State Bar.

Snohomish County Prosecutor Seth Fine is misusing county offices to hold private continuing legal education classes for the Washington State Bar and working as hearing officer for the Washington State Bar Association.

Racism alive and well inside King County Washington Superior Court

“Hating people because of their color is wrong. And it doesn’t matter which color does the hating. It’s just plain wrong.”
Muhammad Ali


Most attorneys in Washington State have taken and passed Constitutional law while in law school.  For me, the right to a fair trial under the 6th Amendment to the United States Constitution is one major component against judicial discrimination.

 

The Sixth Amendment requires juries and fact finders such as judges to be impartial. Impartiality has been interpreted as requiring individual jurors to be unbiased, well stated, 

In Peña-Rodriguez v. Colorado (2017), the Supreme Court held that the Sixth Amendment requires a court in a criminal trial to investigate whether a jury’s guilty verdict was based on racial bias. For a guilty verdict to be set-aside based on the racial bias of a juror, the defendant must prove that the racial bias “was a significant motivating factor in the juror’s vote to convict.” 

According to the Washington State Judicial Ethics Commission,  Judges, while performing bench trials, are under the mandate as a jury to not discriminate.


Discrimination alive and well inside King County Washington Superior Court

 

On May 25, 2017, Washington State Judicial Ethics Commission received a complaint against King County Superior Court Judge Douglas North.

Judge Douglas North on October 21, 2015, during a murder trial involving two defendants,  presided over a hearing (outside the presence of the jury) to determine whether certain text messages found on the victim’s phone from a person known only as “Charisma” would be admitted. Their relevance and admissibility turned, in part, on whether “Charisma” was a gang member and likely to carry out the threat in the text messages.

During the course of this hearing Judge Douglas North said: “But we don’t have any information, of course, about Mr. Charisma, so we don’t know whether he’s some white guy like me making a threat or somebody who’s actually, you know, more likely to be a gangster.” 

 

The last thing we need is a Judge who is a racist here in Washington State. The right to a fair trial should never be infringed upon for any reason.  The Sixth Amendment does not say ” only white guys like me.” The Sixth Amendment has no race, and applies equally to all Americans, whether you’re African American, Native American, Caucasian, Hispanic, etc and a Judge that doesn’t understand this basic Constitutional provisions afforded to all Americans must be removed from office.

In my opinion, King County Superior Court Judge Douglas North must resign without collecting a single welfare check from the taxpayers of Washington State.  Washington residents taxpayer monies should not be spent to inflate a racist Judge.


Judge Douglas North plead guilty for making racist comments by Washington State’s Judicial Ethics Commission.  A copy of the complaint is provided below.

Attempted rape and sexual assault covered up by Snohomish County Washington, misuse of public monies

Over the last ten years, the Gold Bar Reporter has been sounding the alarms about an unqualified political appointee, Snohomish County’s Dept. of Emergency Management Director John E. Pennington.  Today, we have credible sources confirming beyond any shadow of a doubt that John E. Pennington has one more skill to add to his resume, attempted rape of Snohomish County’s public records officer.

 

Although John Pennington was terminated after public records reveal that he is the man responsible for the attempted rape of Snohomish County’s Dept of Emergency Management’s public records officer  ( Snohomish County misused taxpayer monies in exchange for her silence about John E. Pennington’s attempted rape which occurred inside Dept of Emergency Management).

 

Although John E. Pennington was fired from Snohomish County in January 2016, he is the man responsible for the rape of a  5 year old girl from Cowlitz County ( according to Cowlitz County lead detective Maurice Saxon who was forced into early retirement for talking with the Gold Bar Reporter about John Pennington’s rape of a 5 year old girl), guilty of violently assaulting a 3rd trimester pregnant Duvall Washington City Council member,  a man diagnosed by King County Washington Dr. Hedrick’s as a “sociopath with no empathy for human life”, and who enjoys taking showers with a  six year old little girl.

 

Source Pennington v Pennington, Washington Court of Appeals Division One. 


As promised to my readers, once new information becomes available regarding John E. Pennington or his convicted bank frauding wife, Crystal Hill Pennington, the Gold Bar Reporter will post updates.


In 2010, Snohomish County’s political appointee to Dept of Emergency Management John E. Pennington asked county public records officer to come to his office. For the protection of the victim, we will only name her DR.  Once DR sat down for a one on one meeting John E. Pennington, he jumped up from his seat, closed and locked the door behind DR.  This was 2010.

 

In 2010, DR was making approx. $40,000 per year with simple administrative skills. According to a source close to DR, John E. Pennington did not sit down not behind his desk but in a chair adjacent to DR.  Immediately Pennington placed his hand on DR’s leg started massaging her leg stating” we are soul mates!”  DR jumped up from her seat and tried to leave Snohomish County Dept of Emergency Management office but the door was locked.

 

This allowed John E. Pennington to corner DR, placing his arms firmly on each of side DR’s body, locking her inside a corner of Pennington’s county office. DR started shouting for help, forcing Pennington to release DR, sadly, not before Pennington forcibly massaged her breasts, licking her neck, and caressed the inside of legs around her vagina.  DR’s shouts for help inside Snohomish County Dept. of Emergency are believed to be the reason why Pennington’s rape amounted to attempted rape of DR.


Misuse of taxpayer monies to pay off attempted rape victim, Welcome to Snohomish County Washington 

 

So what Snohomish County did not is even more staggering.  In 2010, DR’s best friend, who was also a county worker, called then Executive Aaron Reardon informing of how John E. Pennington tried to rape her best friend DR.  Reardon’s answer to John E. Pennington’s attempted rape of DR was to pay her off.

 

In 2009 to 2010, DR went from her $40,000 year administrative position to a $55,000 year pay raise with a retro-active back pay.  DR took the pay off, and Aaron Reardon failed to report the rape of DR and misappropriated public monies to hide John E. Pennington’s attempted rape of a county worker.

 

DR used taxpayer funds to obtain a breast implant, and manipulated a higher position inside the City of Marysville as Director of Emergency Management making $135,000.

 

DR refused comment as has John E. Pennington for this article.  John Pennington took it a little further and tried to obtain a restraining order against the Gold Bar Reporter’s new reports that has been DENIED three times as a “prior restraint on free speech.”

However, our readers should be happy to know that the “lunatic on the loose” although fired from FEMA and Snohomish County is now teaching classes to our young children at Pierce College in Tacoma Washington.

 

Sexual predicators thrive on access to victims. With no surprise, John E. Pennington is also a man who loves church.

From FEMA to Snohomish County, to Pierce County Washington, “Lunatic on the loose”

On February 22, 2017, Pierce College public official and man responsible for killing of 43 people in the Oso mudslides, John E. Pennington, verbally assaulted a Pierce County Sheriff’s Officer caught on camera.  He also verbally threatened the Gold Bar Reporter’s process server who served John Pennington with more complaints and a subpoena.

Unfortunately, John Pennington’s criminal conduct was caught on camera and witnessed by several onlookers at the Piece County Courthouse, including three Sherriff’s Officers.

The Gold Bar Reporters recently learned that John Pennington has been treated for major mental health problems, and was kicked out of Vanderbilt College as a result.

Imagine a man with mental health problems sat as a Director of Emergency Management of Snohomish County.  A major breach to health and welfare to the taxpayers of Washington State.


John Pennington is being sued for his latest racketeering crimes and posting defamatory and untrue statements on a website he and his bank frauding wife Crystal Hill Pennington run titled  ” The Sky Valley Chronicle.”  Both were served with new complaints on Thursday, and by John Pennington’s threats and tactics to intimidate court officers were witnessed on camera.

” Looney Tunes, What’s up Doc?

“Lunatic on the loose” John E Pennington has been trying for over eight years to obtain a prior restraint on free speech against the Gold Bar Reporter’s reports on his and our former bank frauding Mayor Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg, bank fraud Snohomish County, Washington 2005).    Why, to hide their criminal racketeering conduct the Gold Bar Reporter have been exposing for over the last ten years, including a foe online website the Penningtons set up to cyber-stalk their opponents.

Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe Beavers was deposed in November 2016, and he too admitted he was a anonymous cyber-stalker on the Penningtons’ website while he was a Gold Bar public official. Beavers and the City are being sued for gross civil rights violations.

On Thursday February 22, 2017, the lunatics tried for the tenth time to obtain a restraining order against the Gold Bar Reporter, but this time forum shopping in Pierce County.  A county where Crystal Hill Pennington doesn’t live and a county where John Pennington managed to fraud state taxpayers ( and our children) with false academic credentials obtaining a job teaching our youngsters.

Imagine you sign up for Homeland Security degree at Pierce College and your classes are being taught by a man who has admitted to having and using false academic credentials


 

FALSE ACADEMIC CREDENTIALS, JOHN E. PENNINGTON’S FRAUD

UPON THE TAXPAYERS

http://www.gao.gov/new.items/d04771t.pdf   ( GAO)

 

http://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/local-fema-chief-had-little-disaster-experience/    ( Seattle Times report on John Pennington’s false credentials)

 

Please see the attached ABOVE PDF Government Accountability Report  ( or link provided above) on public official John E Pennington’s online diploma mill school of choice.  I also include Seattle Times article in support of John Pennington’s false academic credential.

 

As both reports unmistakably confirms the IRS found that California Coastal sold degrees at flat rates.  As such,  Mark Lindquist, please consider this letter and supporting evidence in support on my criminal complaint against John E. Pennington as he produced his fraudulent online degree to obtain a benefit in violation of

(5) Knowingly using a false academic credential is a gross misdemeanor.

 

As for Pierce College, I’d like some comment from the Dean of Students and/or  Board of Trustees Chair Ms. Roseblatt on why Pierce College approved employment of John E. Pennington with such fraudulent degrees.

As a taxpayer, I have standing to bring not only a criminal complaint for John Pennington false filings, but also a civil charge for state ethics violations.

Our children deserve better from us.


VERBALLY ASSAULTING COURT OFFICERS

John E. Pennington has yet one more credential to add his resume, threatening public and court officers.

With each new credential, the Gold Bar Reporter will update his resume.

Reardon

After the Everett Washington Daily Herald caught Snohomish County executive employees Kevin Thomas Hulten, John Pennington, Christopher Schwarzen, Executive Aaron Reardon and Jon Rudicil criminally harassing and cyber-stalking Gold Bar Reporter Anne Block, right from Snohomish County Offices, Executive Aaron Reardon was forced to resign in disgrace.    

Kevin Hulten plead guilty to evidence tampering only because Block had placed a litigation hold against Kevin Hulten and Snohomish County ordering the county and its employees to preserve all records in native format. But instead, Kevin Hulten two weeks after receiving Block’s litigation hold intentionally destroyed files between Kevin Hulten, John Pennington, and Gold Bar’s Mayors Joe Beavers ( convicted assault, Texas) and Crystal Hill ( nee Berg, convicted of bank fraud, 2000, 2005).   

Kevin Hulten was recently caught on camera and charged with stealing from two stores in Colville Washington, and a source from Colville County recently told the Gold Bar Reporter ” His lawyer has been trying to get the Prosecutor to agree to a diversion program because Kevin Hulten’s is a drug addict.”

John Pennington, Jon Rudicil, and Christopher Schwarzen were all terminated after public records reveal Snohomish County government was also cyber-stalking their opponents an anonymous website titled  ” The Sky Valley Chronicle.”   

 

In the case of John Pennington, county public records also document that he spent most of his time trying to “hack” into the Gold Bar Reporter. 


Judge Richard Jones and his law clerk Juanita Clemente, Exparte Legal Advice Exposed, Pursuant to RCW 42.56  

 

In February 2014, the Gold Bar Reporter had enough; she filed Racketeering and 1983 (civil rights) suit in US Federal District Court. Assigned to Block v. Snohomish County et al was Western Washington Judge Richard Jones.

 

Imagine this.  Two local news reporter exposes Snohomish County Executive Officers criminally cyber-stalking you, forcing you to file a suit seeking damages.  Instead of having an honest judge, a dishonest judge is assigned who not only dismisses your suit  ( that was already proven by two news reporters), issues a personal statement of bias against you inside his bias one-sided orders, and then assist the county and its agency officers with trying to SLAPP down your message by hitting you with attorney fees, remembering that the Everett Herald already exposed the County and its officials for gross civil rights violations.

 

Welcome to Washington State, where there is no difference between the Judge and the Agency, thanks to Association of Washington Cities (AWC) committing Sherman Anti-Trust and RICO violations against any citizen who dares to challenge an agency. An agency that Judge Richard Jones himself was a part as a Washington State Attorney General.

Once Judge Richard Jones learned by Block’s court pleadings that the Gold Bar Reporter had emails between the Washington State Bar Association lead counsel Linda Eide and John Pennington documenting a very very personal relationship existed, Sean Reay and Terrie Lawrie came up with a plan to file a false declaration with the court claiming that the Gold Bar Reporter had threatened Reay.  When in fact, there was another witness present who saw no such threats nor any interaction between Reay and Block.

Judge Jones got what he needed to allege ‘litigation is spiraling out of control ” closed out Block from adding additional defendants, also known to Judge Jones as the Washington State Bar Association, which included his good friend Linda Eide and Doug Ende at the Washington Bar ( an association that he benefited from by receiving endorsements).

Adding more evidence to judicial misconduct, last week Snohomish County turned over public emails from Judge Richard Jones documenting that Judge Jones and his law clerk

 Juantia Clemente gave Sean Reay and Snohomish County a little exparte legal advice

 

Juantia Clemente gave Sean Reay and Snohomish County a little exparte legal advice

 

 

EXPARTE LEGAL ADVICE, CANNON RULES VIOALTED  

According to the American Bar Association:

The prohibitions on ex parte communications apply both to judges and lawyers alike. From the perspective of judges, Rule 3B(7) of the ABA Model Code of Judicial Conduct (MCJC) provides generally that, except as authorized by law, judges may “neither initiate nor consider ex parte or other communications . . . concerning a pending or impending proceeding.” The MCJC, however, provides for certain exceptions. Judges are permitted to engage in ex parte communications for scheduling, administrative purposes, or emergencies, but only if they do not deal with substantive matters, do not confer “a substantive or tactical” advantage on any party, and are promptly communicated to absent parties, who are to be afforded an opportunity to respond. A judge may also confer ex parte in order to settle or mediate a case-but only with the consent of the parties.

Parallel rules of professional conduct likewise long have forbidden lawyers to engage in ex parte communications. Rule 3.5(b) of the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct states that “[a] lawyer shall not . . . communicate ex parte with [a judge] except as permitted by law.” The comment to Rule 3.5 makes clear that the rule broadly incorporates by reference the proscriptions of the MCJC. The prohibition applies to clients or other intermediaries acting at the suggestion or direction of a lawyer, and to ex parte contacts not only with judges but also with “hearing officers, court clerks exercising important discretionary functions, and similar officers.”

Judge Richard Jones and his law clerk Juanita Clemente apparently didn’t believe the County government and its employees, like Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay, didn’t have enough financial and government resources or hutzpah to defeat the Gold Bar Reporter Block on their own, Juanita Clemente and Judge Richard Jones pulled one for the Enterprise giving Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay free exparte legal advice at Block’s expense.  

If Judge Richard Jones and his law clerk Juanita Clemente’s exparte legal advice wasn’t bad enough, when Block called the clerk asking for direction on a non-legal issue, Judge Richard Jones issued an ORDER THREATENING GOLD BAR REPORTER that if she contacted the Court again, he would send out the US Marshall.

 

Apparently to threaten Block who was contacting the court about a non-court document that was misfiled in PACER.

 Judge Richard Jones’s Judge Richard Jones issued an ORDER THREATENING GOLD BAR REPORTER violated basic First Amendment rights of all U.S. Citizens.  But in the scheme of where Judge Richard Jones came from, and why he decided to SLAPP down the Gold Bar Reporter’s civil rights suit ( which was basically handed to her by Everett Herald), one can assume that Judge Jones is not beholding to the Unites State Constitution, only his friends inside the Washington State Bar Association that managed to get him appointed.

 


Although this email was requested under RCW 42.56 in April 2016, Snohomish County Prosecutor and RICO Defendant and Snohomish County Prosecutor Sara DiVittorio (Above) illegally withheld this public email from the Gold Bar Reporter for over a year and stripped the metadata, thus committing more predicate acts in violation of RICO, 1983 and a felony in Washington State ( Injury to public record).

 


More Evidence of RICO, Snohomish County Sean Reay’s crimes against citizens 

On a side note; Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay threatened to have Gold Bar Reporter and another investigative journalist arrested in August 2017 after Snohomish County Superior Court issued a subpoena for the deposition of Snohomish County Prosecutors Mark Roe and Adam Cornell.  This after public records revealed that Snohomish County created a secret agency titled “Dawson Place” to hide law enforcement investigations. Why, so Snohomish County could claim Dawson Place was a 501 (3)(c) and didn’t have to comply with RCW 42.56 (Public Records Act).


Welcome to Washington State, it’s a great place to raise children if you enjoy having judges, agency employees, lawyers trump up criminal charges on you, threaten and extort your livelihood, molest children, cyber-stalk you using foe online websites paid for with government monies, harm you financially, extort your professional licenses and withhold public records committing felonies to ensure convictions and violate your civil rights. 

 

 

Snohomish County Washington, fixing cases to ensure convictions

"Fighting corruption is not just good governance. Its self-defense. It's patriotism." Joe Biden 


Hitler Sign

Nazi Germany, “alive and well inside Washington State” 

Nazi law and order was predicated on the idea that all individuals shall be subordinate to the state. Adolf Hitler enacted strict laws prohibiting political opposition, and free speech. It was Hitler who decided what societal norms were, and it was he who outlawed any behavior he deemed as ‘anti-social behaviors’’, including alcoholism, drug addiction, begging, promiscuity, political dissent, prostitution and homosexuality.


Snohomish County Defenders Association, throwing cases gaining political favor

The Snohomish County Public Defenders Association clams to be a non-profit 501(3)(c).   It’s director is Vicki Norris, a partner at the law office of Anderson Hunter in Everett.  Ms. Norris is married to a Washington State Court of Appeals Division I Judge Robert Leach.  With no surprise, Robert Leach was also a partner at Anderson Hunter law firm in Everett.

Anderson Hunter law firm has one of the largest civil defense contracts with Snohomish County, its managing partner is G. Geoffrey Gibbs, a Pro Tem Snohomish County Commissioner, and a person who manages the financials ( 18 million annually) for the Washington State Bar Association.

So this means, Vicki Norris, is not only the Director of the Snohomish County Public Defenders Association, she is also a civil defense contractor to provide a legal defense when Snohomish County gets sued for malicious prosecution.

Imagine this.  You’re charged with a crime inside Snohomish County Washington. You’re poor and cannot afford a lawyer. Snohomish County refers you to a taxpayer funded public defender, whose director is Vicki Norris, a partner at the law firm of Anderson Hunter Snohomish County’s largest contractor providing civil defense.

So not only does the Snohomish County Public Defenders Association rely on government money for its existence, it’s Director, a managing partner, is also receiving money from the County to defend against lawsuits filed against the County for civil rights violations.

If that’s not bad enough, you also learn that Vicki Norris’s husband is a Court of Appeals Division One Judge, whose friends inside Court of Appeals Division One will influence your appeal, whether criminal or civil.

a dishonest scheme; a fraud, throwing cases for political and financial favors are just a few words that come to mind, when I think of Snohomish County Public Defenders Association.


First Step to Throwing a Case, Deal or No Deal

When I think of our criminal justice system, I think of a game show, Deal or No Deal. It’s a television game show that revolves around the opening of a set of numbered briefcases, each of which contains a different prize (cash or otherwise). The contents (i.e. $$ amount) of all of the cases are known at the start of the game, but the specific location of any prize is unknown. The contestant claims (or is assigned) a case to begin the game. The case’s value is not revealed until the conclusion of the game.  Technically, the game is stacked against the player ( the accused).

mtgrsfordummiesa2016

The analogy here is simple; when the Snohomish County Public Defenders Association and its managing directors’ hold the largest contracts with Snohomish County justice is perverted, and cases are thrown as political favors, and financial rewards ( contracts), resulting in justice being perverted in favor of the almighty dollar.

One such case thrower is attorney and Snohomish County Public Defender Jason Schwarz.


 

Former Washington Post Watergate reporter Bob Woodward was right, ” follow the money.”


 

In the middle of 2016, I began investigating a simple criminal misdemeanor case involving a seventy-year old petite nurse, who is alleged to have assaulted a neighbor.  The neighbor stands almost six feet tall, weighs well over two-hundred fifty pounds, and just happens to be the tenant of Anderson Hunter’s managing partner, G. Geoffrey Gibbs, who if you remember is also a Snohomish County Commissioner.

In Judge Downes’s warped sense of justice, exercising your legal right to challenge corruption is worthy of a $70,000 SLAPP fine, especially when doing so involves suing his good friend and County commissioner G. Geoffrey Gibbs.

In 2011, G. Geoffrey Gibbs was being sued by the seventy year old nurse for infringing on her property.  At the same time, Gibbs’s tenant who lives next door to the nurse alleges that she was assaulted by the nurse.

First point of order, the alleged victim goes to court for restraining order. DENIED. So when the restraining order didn’t work, G. Geoffrey Gibbs sends an email to Everett city attorney and his personal golf buddy Michael Fisher and says ” charge her anyways so she will have to expend a large retainer…”

Imagine, your claiming you’re a victim of crime, you go to court seeking a restraining order, the judge denies your request, basically stating there’s nothing here. Then, your landlord, who just happens to be a county commissioner write to the Prosecutor, who happens to be his golf buddy, and you’re then charged with assault. It’s now six years later, and her case is still pending.

What caught my attention about this case was a just two years out of law school Snohomish County Public Defender Jason Schwarz was acting as a ” Pro Tem Judge.”

As an investigative journalist with a Juris Doctorate degree here in Washington State, I remember saying ‘what makes a recent law school graduate qualified to serve as a judge?”

US House of Representative House Speaker Tip O’Neil once said ” all politics is local.”  This famous quote leads me to believe what US House Speaker Tip O’Neil meant was all things in our lives are affected by local politics.  But instead of paying attention to local politics, which is the hot bed for corruption, our duopoly, Democrats v Republicans, or our so called democracy  have Americans fighting over abortion, welfare, and guns.

Reporter Bob Woodward came up with an easy solution to uncovering corruption, “Follow the money.”  Under Woodward’s general principles  of ” follow the money”, corruption equates to money, political influence in exchange for political favors, this here in Snohomish County equates to fixing cases to gain a financial benefit.

After watching Everett Municipal Court maliciously prosecute a 70 year old nurse with no prior criminal history, I began investigating Snohomish County Public Defender Jason Schwarz for corruption.

Sadly, I write in remembrance of my Constitutional law and ethics Professor who said ” Our criminal justice is failing. Anne, I know you’re going to instigate change where change is needed ( boy was that an understatement). This generation cares nothing about the rights of the accused…” At the time, I had just completed a Juris Doctorate degree and had no idea what he meant, but thanks to attorney Jason Schwarz, I do now.


 

Jason

Snohomish County Public Defender Jason Schwarz “the bigger lawyer looser” 

 

For Snohomish County Defendant Jerry Bogart, Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe’s Office failed to disclose to Jerry Bogart that Snohomish County Sheriff’s investigator David Fontenot is a known Brady Cop guilty of excess of force and terminated as a result.

But this story didn’t end here.  In 2016, at the bequest of another blogger who couldn’t attend another trial, Brady Cop David Fontenot was the investigator on another case involving a mother of five, a small business owner, with no prior criminal history, named Lori Shavlik.

Soon after hearing of Ms. Shavlik, I started sifting through her files, learning quickly that Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office not only failed ( really hid) to disclose information it had in its possession as it relates to Brady Cop David Fontenot,  he was also a witness against her and allowed to assist the Snohomish County Prosecutor during trial.  This in front the jury; in criminal cases all witnesses are supposed to be sequestered.

Thankfully for Ms. Shavlik a jury acquitted her of all charges, seeing through the countless fabricated evidence and false testimony presented by Brady Cop David Fontenot in her case.

Snohomish County Prosecutors’ ignore the constitutional rights of defendants, spit on Brady v Maryland like its a piece of toilet paper, and have rigged Snohomish County’s criminal justice system against defendants by contracting with one law firm, claiming falsely that Snohomish County Public Defenders’ Association is not a public agency and its managing partners from Anderson Hunter, for the delivery of legal services.

This conduct reeks of Sherman Anti-Trust issues, another topic for another day. However, public defender and Washington State attorney Jason Schwarz is team player inside what I consider to be gross Sherman Anti-trust violations and a racketeering scheme, fixing cases to ensure convictions.


“When honor and the Law no longer stand on the same side of the line, how do we choose[?]”  Anne Bishop

In 2016, the Honorable Justice Alex Kozinski held in the Joshua Frost case, said King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office violated a rule requiring the disclosure of information material to the case “by willfully withholding evidence of Shaw’s domestic-violence plea deal and permitting Shaw to lie on the stand.”

Justice Kozinski said the prosecution’s tactic were deliberate, and not an oversight. The County Prosecutor’s public records officer Kelli Williams kept Shaw’s signed plea agreements secret until two days after Frost was convicted and the office stonewalled in providing Frost this information when he doggedly requested it.

But the truth is, King County’s withholding of evidence to ensure conviction is governed by Association of Washington Cities (AWC).   AWC insures almost all public defenders, counties, cities, and its employees here in Washington State.

A few weeks ago attorney Jeffrey S. Myers, said ” We cannot settle this suit because Anne Block requested records and would benefit financially.  We will not let her win.”  Jeff  S. Myers, an attorney with Lyman, Daniel, Kamerrer, and Bogdanovich, is a contractor for AWC, located in Tumwater Washington.

Snohomish County and its contractors such as Snohomish County Public Defenders Association are all members of AWC.

So imagine, not only are you using a public defender whose managing director is a managing partner in Snohomish County’s largest civil defender law firm of Anderson Hunter, and Snohomish County government are insured through AWC.


Throwing cases, AWC style 

080372p06055w

The hand shaking brings me back to attorney and Snohomish County Public Defender Jason Schwarz throwing the Jerry Bogart case in exchange for political influence, and government contracts.  A few months ago, an objective observer witnessed Jason Schwarz bragging to another person how after the Bogart case he was setting up his own private practice.  One source claims that Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office as a reward plans to divert public defense monies his way, because Schwarz helped the Prosecution throw cases. Bogart was no different.

On November 22, 2017, I witnessed attorney Jason Schwarz put his client Jerry Bogart on the stand, having him testify against himself.  From any objective observer, it was clear that Jerry Bogart’s IQ is less than 75, thus in my opinion he was not able to fully comprehend the charges against him. Hence why Bogart was assigned counsel.

Looking through parts of the Bogart files, it’s clear that the Prosecutor did not have a case, unless Bogart admitted guilt.  As a result, Jason Schwarz needed to convince Bogart into testifying. However, Jason Schwartz and the Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office had one problem, Washlite Board member and local activist Lori Shavlik had been visiting inmates in the County jail trying to get the word out about the county’s undisclosed Brady Cop David Fontenot.

As an activist interested only in justice, Ms. Shavlik was handing over Brady Cop Fontenot’s criminal history files over to defense attorneys and inmate, while I was emailing judges informing them of Brady Cop Fontenot, placing Fontenot’s files into the public record forever. This resulted in Jason Schwarz and Snohomish County restricting inmates from having Lori Shavlik on its visitors list.

Obviously when defendants have information that leans in their favor, and withheld in violation of Our Supreme Court’s holding in Brady v Maryland, they tend to say wait a minute, not so fast. Jerry Bogart was no match for attorney Jason Schwarz, and since Lori Shavlik had been restricted from visiting inmates, Jerry Bogart was left to rely on attorney Jason Schwarz.

According to Jerry Bogart’s family, attorney Jason Schwarz relentlessly convinced him to testify against himself.  Why, because the Prosecutor’s Office had nothing, and Schwartz needs legal contracts to set up his private practice.

As one can imagine, Jerry Bogart, a man with a very low IQ, at the relentless urging of his defense attorney Jason Schwarz testified against himself.  On November 22, 2017, Ms. Shavlik and I popped into Judge Janice Ellis’s courtroom and witnessed, in part, Bogart’s testimony. if Jason Schwartz conduct wasn’t bad enough, I sat, in tears, watching Judge Janice Ellis standing up just aside the jury box, as Bogart testified, nodding her head up and down, in agreement, when the Prosecutor questioned Jerry Bogart.

 

What Lori Shavlik and I witnessed Judge Janice Ellis do was commit egregious judicial misconduct, ensuring conviction of man, with a low IQ, one has to wonder if he even understood or could fully grasped the charges that were lodged against him.

After public defender Jason Schwartz had Jerry Bogart testify against himself, the jury only spent two hours to issue a conviction on all counts. After the jury was released,  Lori Shavlik and I spoke to several jurors who told us ” Bogart testified against himself and gave the Prosecutor what they needed to convict”  another said ” Not sure why Bogart testified  because up until then the Prosecutor had nothing” and another said ” I don’t care.”

Judge Janice Ellis’s judicial misconduct will be forever imprinted in my head, and leaves me struggling to sleep at night.

Both Jason Schwartz and Judge Janice Ellis were contacted for comment. As of today both have refused comment.

 

I agree with the Honorable 9th Justice Alex Kozinski, we have a major problem inside our so called criminal justice system.

Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe’s crimes against county taxpayers, forces his early retirement

 Mark Roe Pic

Snohomish County Prosecutor forced into early retirement after public records reveal that he and the County have been misappropriating public funds, operating a secret government funded company “Dawson Place” set up by Snohomish County Prosecutors’ Mark Roe, Adam Cornell, Seth Dawson, and Janice Ellis ( Ellis is now serving as Snohomish County Superior Court Judge) with 15 Million dollars of taxpayers monies.

Purpose for creating Dawson Place is alleged to be to help children who are victims of sexual and physical abuse.  However, that’s not what it’s being used for.  Dawson Place is being used to hide law enforcement investigations, hide government accountability, illegal track citizens, illegally access health records on citizens who question government officials, and hide public records to evade accountability.

In 1972, Washington State’s Legislature enacted RCW 42.56 ( Public Records Act) with this preamble:

The people of this state do not yield their sovereignty to the agencies that serve them. The people, in delegating authority, do not give their public servants the right to decide what is good for the people to know and what is not good for them to know. The people insist on remaining informed so that they may maintain control over the instruments that they have created. This chapter shall be liberally construed and its exemptions narrowly construed to promote this public policy and to assure that the public interest will be fully protected. In the event of conflict between the provisions of this chapter and any other act, the provisions of this chapter shall govern.

 

In several cases, Snohomish County Prosecutor Adam Cornell was caught performing investigations ( law enforcement function) subjecting the County to gross 1983 violations and violating Our Court’s holding in Kalina v. Fletcher, 522 U.S. 118 (1997) ( Prosecutor’s who act as a detective/investigator lose any immunity they claim they have)

Bigger problem for those of us who care about the rights of the accused, hiding “exculpatory evidence” in violation of Our Court’s Holding in Brady v. Maryland – Wikipedia 

In a nutshell, the Supreme Court held that withholding exculpatory evidence violates due process “where the evidence is material either to guilt or to punishment”; and the court determined that under Maryland state law the withheld evidence could not have exculpated the defendant but was material to the level of punishment he would be given. Hence the Maryland Court of Appeals’ ruling was affirmed.

A defendant’s request for “Brady disclosure” refers to the holding of the Brady case, and the numerous state and federal cases that interpret its requirement that the prosecution disclose material exculpatory evidence to the defense. Exculpatory evidence is “material” if “there is a reasonable probability that his conviction or sentence would have been different had these materials been disclosed”.[2] Brady evidence includes statements of witnesses or physical evidence that conflicts with the prosecution’s witnesses,[3] and evidence that could allow the defense to impeach the credibility of a prosecution witness.

Dawson Place, scamming victims, and scamming the Washington State taxpayers

Dawson Place

So what happens when the government is funneling public money to an alleged non-profit, like Dawson Place, and then claims it doesn’t have to comply with Washington State’s Open Government laws, RCW Chapter 42.56 RCW_ PUBLIC RECORDS ACT?

It’s called hiding public records to ensure criminal convictions, and cherry picking criminal prosecutions to hide crime stats.  In the case of Lori Shavlik, it equates to criminal racketeering as political favors to retaliate against persons who question government officers, like Mark Roe and Monroe School Superintendent Ken Hoover.


Rape in Monroe Washington High School, ignored by Dawson Place

When a Snohomish County resident’s daughter was violently raped and assaulted at the Monroe Washington High School in 2007, she did what any mother would do, she demanded justice and sought help for her daughter.  One such place the mother sought help from was Dawson Place ( Dawson Advocacy Services)

Dawson Place alleges to be a 501(3)(c) but yet it was created by Prosecutors Seth Dawson ( hence how it got its name), Adam Cornell, and Mark Roe, and receives 77 % of its money from the public funds, and the Board is controlled by Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe and Sheriff Ty Trenary.

Instead of calling the police department and reporting the crime of rape, Monroe High School’s Superintendent Ken Hoover covered it up. Why, because reporting the crime of rape doesn’t sell houses.

The mother filed complaints against Monroe High School and received and a favorable Administrative Law Judge’s finding that Monroe High School violated her daughter’s Title VIII rights.

Meanwhile, the mother is asking Dawson Place for resources for her daughter, little did she know that the people who were taking her criminal complaints against those same public officials from the Monroe High School at Dawson Place were in fact Snohomish County Sheriff Officers and Prosecutors.  Conflict fudgamagic?

Recently, I had the pleasure of listening to a tape recorded interview with a member of Dawson Place who openly admitted when asked who the Dawson Place advocates were, her response was “Dawson Place doesn’t have any advocates. Advocates are the Sheriff and Prosecutors.”

So this begs one question: how can a company allege its a non-profit be receiving millions of taxpayer money and have government officers ( more likely than not on taxpayer time) run a non-profit?

Instead of helping this victim, Dawson Place along with Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Mark Roe and Adam Cornell conspired to harm her and trumped up arson charges on her using one known Brady Cop ( and a personal friend to Mark Roe’s who openly smokes pot with Mark Roe inside Snohomish County 7th Floor Public Offices. See http://snocoreporter.com/mark-roe-turn-rock-music-put-bong-follow-brady-v-maryland/ )

Over the last year, I’ve gotten to know the mom as a loving mother, a victim of Snohomish County Prosecutors Mark Roe, and Adam Cornell’s malicious prosecution racketeering scheme fraudulently charging her with arson to shut her up for speaking out about the corruption, a friend, a freedom fighter and person who doesn’t take no for an answer.

These attributes make her target for Snohomish County Prosecutor Gang Stalking Network. A network operating from Snohomish County Prosecutor and Sheriff’s offices.  A network from public agency titled “Dawson Advocacy Services”  also doing business as “Dawson Place.”

But Prosecutor Mark Roe got caught, resulting in his early retirement for misappropriation of public assets


Lori Shavlik and Arthur West sued Dawson Place, claiming that its a “public agency”  – West/Shavlik v Dawson Place, Snohomish County Superior Court

On Thursday October 18, 2017, Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe announced his resignation as Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office effective December 31, 2018. Mr. Roe’s resignation comes immediately following a lawsuit involving his misuse of public assets and resources to support a non-profit group, Dawson Place.

Two weeks ago, Mark Roe’s was placed under oath, forcing his under the oath admission  that he violated Washington State’s Public Disclosure laws, operated an alleged non-profit , Dawson Place, while being paid by Snohomish County taxpayers.

Dawson Place, a public agency hiding exculpatory evidence to ensure convictions

When a Prosecutor assumes duties of an office s/he is sworn in to uphold the laws of Washington, and both the U.S. and Washington State’s Constitution.  From Mark Roe’s deposition in West/Shavlik v Dawson Place, one has to wonder if Mark Roe failed Constitutional law or simply a criminal in a suit believing himself to be above of the laws of Washington.  We believe it’s a little of both.


Washington State, Prosecutor’s Duties ( law Mark Roe are sworn in to uphold, but not only ignored, Mark Roe also went out of his way to violate laws he was sworn in to uphold)

RCW 36.27.020- Prosecutor’s Duties.

Not only did Mark Roe violate basic laws regarding his conduct while serving as a Prosecutor, he brags about his crimes against taxpayers.

Perhaps Mark Roe also missed “misappropriation” of public resources section of Washington’s Revised Code:

RCW 42.20.070 -Misappropriation and falsification of accounts by public officer.

The above RCW clearly defines what a Snohomish County Prosecutor’s role is, and does not include acting as President or a Board member for Dawson Place.
Once West/ Shavlik confronted Mark Roe with his criminal activity, and being placed under investigation for his illegal activities, Mark Roe announced his retirement effective December 31, 2018.  Why, because Mark Roe knows several citizens are planning to Recall him for his misappropriation of public resources to run Dawson Place (Mark Roe’s self proclaimed fort).

No longer is it acceptable to say “Mark Roe needs to go” , it is time for the county taxpayers to demand  that ” Mark Roe must go, and not on his terms”

Mark Roe needs to go, and the voters should not have to wait until December 31, 2018, to rid our county of the criminals who are misusing our resources for their own political agenda.

 

In my opinion, Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe should be in prison for misuse of our county resources for his own political capital, withholding evidence in countless criminal trials by claiming that “Dawson Place” is a non-profit group.

 

Mark Roe’s deposition make one thing clear,  Mark Roe, Seth Dawson, Janice Ellis, and Adam Cornell created a secret government agency, Dawson Place.  A place that Mark Roe can claim that no public records exist, hide law enforcement investigations and evidence by claiming it’s a private non-profit group in violation of basic constitutional principles I love more than the practice of law.

 

As such, Mark Roe’s Recall must move forward regardless of whether he decides to retire next year, as our open government laws here in Washington cannot wait for Mark Roe to go, nor should the county taxpayers write a single check in support of his blatant disrespect and disregard for the constitutional rights of Washingtonians.

 

Dawson Place needs a lot of sunshine and RCW 42.56 is just the remedy to cure Snohomish County’s ” Domestic Spying Ring” also known as Dawson Place.

“Heck of a job, Brock” another FEMA failure

merlin-to-scoop-124802810-604072-superJumbo
Brock Long, FEMA political appointee

In 1979, President Jimmy Carter started the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Purpose, to provide assistance to local governments hit with disasters. Typically, FEMA doesn’t respond unless a governor requests federal assistance during or leading up to a disaster.

After 9/11, FEMA became part of the Department of Homeland Security, the Executive Branch serving at the will of the President.  Sadly this means the President is allowed to make political appointments.

As my readers know all too well, political appointments all too often yield uneducated and unqualified political appointees, instead of people who can perform.

Such is the case of Donald Trump’s political appointee Brock Long, FEMA Director.


Brock Long earned a MA in Criminal Justice from Appalachian State University, West Virginia. For those of us who have ever served in any capacity of Academia, we know Criminal Justice majors are the least educated members of our society.  Why seems to be geared toward the mentality that police officers only follow orders.  The military style philosophy.

He served as a regional manager there during George W. Bush’s administration before leading the Alabama Emergency Management Agency from 2008 to 2011, including during the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

Long joined the George W. Bush Jr. administration in November 2001 as a hurricane program manager in FEMA for six states, Alabama, Florida, Mississippi, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina.  He, Michael Browne, and John E. Pennington ( fired from FEMA and Snohomish County for unethical conduct unbecoming of a public officer) were major participants in FEMA’s botched response to Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

Mr. Long’s major achievement was the distribution of a hurricane computer game for grade-school students that focused on preparedness for such storms.  Presumably because our children don’t have enough games to play at home.

Mr. Long left FEMA in 2006. The following year, he was named southeast regional director for Beck Disaster Recovery, a consulting firm that specialized in emergency planning, disaster training and post-event recovery.

In January 2008, Long became director of the Alabama Emergency Management Agency, where he directed the state’s response to incidents as different as the H1N1 flu virus and the BP Deepwater Horizon oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, as well as hurricanes and other storms. Long’s experience with schools was particularly prized by Alabama after a school in the town of Enterprise collapsed during a 2007 tornado, killing eight students.

He had no management skills prior to receiving political appointments, and at least part of his degree (MS) appears to have been earned ” online.”

In 2017, Long unjustly received widespread praise by President Trump for his handling of the federal response to Hurricane Harvey, the first major natural disaster faced by the Trump administration in 2017.

Instead of actually doing anything to assist disaster victims prior to Hurricane Harvey, Long appeared on the scene just long enough to grab the limelight, hand out food supplies and take pictures ( in dress clothes, adding insult the average working class American).

Mistakenly, Long said emergency management begins at the local level and that it is FEMA’s job to serve in a supportive role.  A gross understatement, as FEMA’s role is Emergency Management, before, after and during disasters.  Mistakes often made by persons who lack the education and knowledge of why and how FEMA was created.

 

During a visit to Texas after the storm, President Trump introduced Mr. Long as “a man who really has become very famous on television in the last couple of days.”  After seeing this, I remember saying ” am I reading this right? People are dying, without water, food, and electricity, and our FEMA Director’s proudest accomplishments should be how famous he will become as a result of being on television.  America is in trouble!”

Personally I’d prefer not to be associated with failing to adequately respond in performing my job, human suffering, and causing the deaths of hundreds, in a very public way.

 

Is being famous really important when fellow Americans are without food, clean water,  and electricity?

Leaders problem solve, this involves reaching across the political lines to find solutions, not a ” my way or the highway” approach.  Sadly, Brock Long represents what’s wrong with Washington D.C.


America is harmed by not having qualified persons running FEMA  

With no surprise my readers probably already guessed that I was no Donald Trump supporter. Frankly speaking, I felt he was unqualified to serve as a Diplomat for America – and I was no fan of his T.V. show The Apprentice, which I view as mindless television, harming our children into believing that winning is more important than working together to find solutions.  However, I first gave Trump the benefit of the doubt, until he disrespected German Chancellor Angela Merkel by refusing to shake her hand. 

Not because I believe Chancellor Angela Merkel is right on immigration ( fact is I believe she created a dangerous situation for Germany by allowing Muslims to immigrate at will), because I expect the President of the United States ( my homeland)  to be respectful, and to act respectful, to elected leaders around the World. Chancellor Angela Merkel is no exception because she’s a female or has different views about immigration (which I certainly do not and never will share).

 And tweeting threats to North Korea is not making us safer, its harming America’s credibility throughout the World, and makes us look like bullies who act on impulse and not with diplomacy.

 


A few weeks ago, I witnessed our President Tweet that Puerto Rico residents were “second class citizens”, for me, it was time to speak out.  Taking this phrase apart word by word, “Second” speaks for itself, meaning not first. Presumably referring to the America’s main land residents in first place.  Winners apparently, not just lucky to born on the mainland.  Next, class refers to a superior group of persons. For me, all life on planet Earth is sacred.  Lastly, citizens. The word citizen according to Dictionary.com means “a native or naturalized member of a state or nation who owes allegiance to its government and is entitled to its protection (distinguished from alien ). “


Puerto Rico is an American territory, meaning all Puerto Ricans are “citizens of the US.”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puerto_Rico

  Nothing second class about US citizens. 

 So why did it take eight days for Brock Long to respond to Hurricane Maria?  Seems to me that Long too believes that Puerto Rico residents are “second class citizens” and simply implemented policy, also known as “class warfare.”

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Class_conflict

 Problem for me, Brock Long disrespected fellow Americans, and as such, he will receive as much sunshine as our Freedom of Information Act allows.

 


 

 

In 2014, John E. Pennington, a political to FEMA Region X ( George W Bush Jr. forced his resignation after he learned that he was treated for major mental health issues and enjoys abusing women and children) and Snohomish County Emergency Management  (terminated after he was caught via public records criminally harassing the Gold Bar Reporter and trying to hack into the Gold Bar Reporter’s blogs) caused the deaths of 43 residents in the Oso mudslides here in Washington State. Instead of doing his job, public records reveal that he spent most of his work day criminally harassing me and trying to hack into the Gold Bar Reporter’s blog.

After he killed 43 people in the Oso mudslides here in Washington State, finally in 2015, John E. Pennington was fired after public records documented his criminal conduct as state herein, and his U.S. Homeland Security clearance was stripped after he was caught running illegal background checks on citizens here in Washington State. 

John E. Pennington is being sued for RICO and gross 1983 violations, and our readers should be happy to know that Brock Long hired Pennington to teach FEMA Emergency Management classes at Emergency Management Institute ( FEMA EMI) in Maryland/Pennsylvania, and even awarded contracts to John E. Pennington’s college drop-out ( who we hear managed to get an online certificate from Eastern Oregon State, a college which had major accreditation problems) convicted bank frauding wife Crystal Hill Pennington ( convicted of bank fraud, Snohomish County, Washington, 2005 using alias of  Crystal Berg; and served time in North Carolina, using alias of Chris Hill, 2000, for the same offense).

Brock Long should take lesson on how to be a great American from San Juan’s Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz.
President Trump enjoys the term ” YOU’RE FIRED” but failed to fire the biggest failure of all, Brock Long, adding insult to injury.

King County and Snohomish County providing more evidence of RICO

 

Batiot

 

Brady Cop, Lori Batiot, above, terminated from Duvall Washington only after the Snohomish County Reporter and I started investigating her past criminal history, and only after she had been labeled a liar in several Washington State proceedings


In February 2017, Duvall Washington police officer Lori Batiot was terminated for lying during an formal police investigation. From this story, and sources that follow as a result of our investigation, there were other victims of Lori Batiot’s fabricating evidence to ensure convictions.

Our readers should wonder, or tear up, when you think about how many criminal cases Ms. Batiot lied in and/or fabricated evidence in to ensure criminal convictions.

An issue still under investigation. But let’s not forget my past articles on Brady Cop Lori Batiot, she worked for and was fired from two other police departments because of conduct unbecoming of a police officer.

So why did the Duvall Police Department hire and keep a woman who should be in prison on its payroll?  Well it’s simple, John Pennington, former Director of Emergency Management of Snohomish County, had a plan get back at his soon to be ex-wife, Anne for filing criminal assault charges against him and starting divorce proceedings against him.

penny

At the time John Pennington criminally assaulted his soon to be ex-wife Anne, Anne was three weeks away from delivering her first child.  A child John Pennington abandoned  for the first 15 months of the child’s life, until he realized that he’d have to pay child support.

Duvall’s Mayor Will Ibsheroff  works as a Public Sector Manager for a national environmental services company on the east side of Seattle.  For those of my readers who don’t know this from past Mafia stories, trash is a lucrative business, hence why Duvall’s Mayor made a deal with Snohomish County Director John E. Pennington.

Will Ibershof

The deal was you ( Mayor Will Ibsheroff) help me quash the criminal assault charges that Special Prosecutor Sandra Meadowcraft, Kenyon Disend PLLC ( Issaquah) brought against me ( John E. Pennington), conspire to force my soon to be ex-wife ( # 3 ) Anne off the Duvall City Council, and you will receive lucrative Snohomish County contracts for trash and recycle.

It worked, Mayor Will Ibsheroff contacted attorney Michael Kenyon seeking his assistance with having attorney Sandra Meadowcraft throw the criminal assault charges against John E. Pennington.  Not only did Mayor Will Ibsheroff obstruct justice in the criminal prosecution of John E. Pennington, he and Pennington used one of former Executive Aaron Reardon’s political hacks from the Seattle Times to go after John Pennington’s soon to be ex-wife Anne.

http://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/duvall-council-member-faces-residency-hearing/

Instead of the Seattle Times reporting ” Duvall City Council Member flees for her life after Snohomish County Director of Emergency Management violently assaulted her” the Seattle Times former reporter and now press secretary for Executive Aaron Reardon Christopher Schwarzen ran a hit piece as a political favor.

Just two months before John E. Pennington’s criminal trial was to begin, Anne ( Pennington’s victim) called Duvall Special Prosecutor Sandra Meadowcraft asking when she intended to interview her for the upcoming criminal trial of John E Pennington.  Ms Meadowfcroft’s response was ” oh that, the state dropped the charges. Not enough evidence.”

This was a lie. How we know is simple, King County District Court Redmond Division turned over the audio file from John E Pennington’s criminal hearing, and it’s clear that Sandra Meadowcroft failed to appear, throwing the criminal cases, and the court noted she was the Special Prosecutor the day of John Pennington’s criminal assault trial.

 

In the past, I published an article about Duvall’s Mayor Will Ibsheroff’s little racketeering scam with John E. Pennington, but since that time, because of Brady Cop Lori Batiot, we’re learned a lot more about her involvement and why Will Ibsheroff and John Pennington placed Lori Batiot inside the Duvall police department.

It’s simple, to stop any criminal complaint to be pursued against John E. Pennington, a Duvall Washington resident.

After all, Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe’s little racketeering gang had already assisted John E Pennington with quashing criminal charges against Gold Bar’s Mayor Crystal Hill for violently assaulting a six year child in her care.

Mark Roe’s racketeering conduct was captured quite nicely inside Snohomish County public records.  RCW 42.56 is a powerful tool in exposing the cockroaches where they roam, inside our government offices.

Unfortunately for Crystal Hill, Mark Roe wasn’t the Snohmish County Prosecutor in 2005 when Crystal Hill was charged with and plead guilty to bank fraud using an alias of Crystal Berg.

In April 2016,  Duvall police officer Lori Batiot called the Gold Bar Reporter making threats to arrest us for reporting on John Pennington and Crystal Hill’s little racketeering scheme of using public officials, mainly police officers like Batiot, to trump up criminal charges on John Pennington and Mark Roe’s political critics.

At the point Lori Batiot made a threatening phone call, I had no idea who Lori Batiot was, other than anytime there was on almost all criminal complaints filed against John E. Pennington\.  Ms. Batiot always said there’s not enough evidence.

In one case, John Pennington’s newest mistress, Crystal Hill, threw a Blackberry device at a Duvall police officer after he responded to a domestic violence call at the Pennington home. Batiot was present and witness Ms. Hill Pennington threatening a public officer.

Were charges ever brought against Crystal Hill for threatening a police officer? No, you guessed it, Lori Batiot on the scene to help out the racketeering Enterprise cover up their criminal conduct.

In April 2016, Lori Batiot’s extortionist and threatening phone call me amounted to a light bulb going off in my brain.  A theory. “What if John Pennington knew Lori Batiot for sometime and managed to get her a job inside Duvall to protect him. After all,  Pennington bragged to his ex-mother-in-law that he had placed people inside government offices to make sure he’s protected if anyone dares to file criminal charges against him.”

Immediately following Lori Batiot’s extortionist, wire threatening phone call to charge me with a crime for reporting on John Pennington’s criminal Enterprise conduct, I would have never believed just how big this little racketeering group.

Yesterday a source called me stating ” the Washington State Bar Association is desperately trying to get someone to charge you with a crime because WSBA hearing officer Lin O’Dell and WSBA President Robyn Haynes are in big trouble with the IRS for tax evasion in D.C. Tax Courts.”

For those of you who may not know this, WSBA Hearing Officer Lin O’Dell was found guilty of trust embezzlement in Stevens County, 2013. As a reward, Lin O’Dell was assigned hear a case against the Gold Bar Reporter.

In March 2014, the WSBA Office of Disciplinary Counsel Chief Hearing Officer Joseph Nappi Jr. assigns thief and attorney Lin O’Dell .  who we later learned was involved with Joseph Nappi Jr in Washington State’s largest racketeering scam of stealing from elderly clients inside Spokane nursing homes. Lin O’Dell would refer elderly clients to Nappi Jr and had palced her convicted kiler husband Mark Plivilech inside nursing homes. Purpose, Mark Plivilech as a case manager inside nursing homes who sift the elderly clients files and learn how money they had or did not have. Lin O’Dell would then use Spokane County Commissioner Grovdhal and/or Spokane County Superior Court Judge Annette Plese to gain guardianship over the elderly victim and when a family member would complain, O’Dell and Plese would place a restraining order on the family members to limit access. Limiting access also limits the ability of the loved one to learn what was really happening, elderly abuse by Lin O’Dell, stealing and depleting the elderly person’s life savings. Once Lin O’Dell and her racketeering gang from Spokane County would deplete the elderly person’s accounts, they would place them on SSA and Medicaid.

 

Sorry got to go for now, but will finish this soon connecting King County to the largest RICO organized crime ring in US history.   Promise
