Mary Kay Becker, judge of Div. I, ( left) Washington State Court of Appeals. When we appealed Judge Eadie’s refusal to recuse,[1] Judge Becker sided with Judge Eadie (and Lane Powell, Sulkin, etc.). In reaching her decision, she misrepresented the history of the dispute, misrepresented our arguments and the issue before the court, and then ruled on the basis of her misrepresentations. By that technique, a judge can arrive at any decision she wants.

So a curious person might ask, why did Judge Becker want to arrive at that decision? Was she protecting Judge Eadie, as one union member tends to protect another? Whatever the reason, Becker’s misrepresentations and her ruling did not have the appearance of justice.

Stephen Dwyer, judge of Div. I, ( Middle) Washington State Court of Appeals, sat on the panel that affirmed the righteousness of the judge who appeared to be self-dealing.

Linda Lau, judge of Div. I, ( right) Washington State Court of Appeals, sat on the panel that affirmed the righteousness of the judge who appeared to be self-dealing.

 After reading Carol and Bill’s story below, Our readers can be the judge on whether or not the conduct below equates to Racketeering.

Written by Carol DeCoursey, reposted with permission

We are a married couple (two seniors) of modest income.  New to Washington, in 2004 we were looking for a home. Our Windermere agent arranged a home-purchase renovation package without telling us the contractor was unlicensed, unqualified for the job, and his business partner.  The contractor bungled the job and ruined the value of the home.  Then, in March, 2006, one of the sub-contractors sued us, complaining the prime had not paid him.  (Story at http://www.RenovationTrap.com.)

We defended ourselves pro se and cross-claimed against Windermere Real Estate, the construction company, and others.  We then discovered that other homeowners had been ripped off by Windermere, that the Department of Licensing (DOL) refused to discipline Windermere agents and enforce real estate laws, and that the Attorney General’s Office (AGO) defended DOL’s malfeasance.  We spoke out against the corruption — we became  whistleblowers.  (Story at http://www.Windermere-Victims.com.  See some of the fliers we circulated:  “Crime Syndicate in Washington?” http://www.everyones-business.org/Crime-Syndicate-in-Washington.pdf” and “Legalizing Crime in Washington,” http://www.everyones-business.org/Legalizing-Crime-in-Washington.pdf”).  

In company with other victims of Windermere, we petitioned the State Auditor’s office to investigate the DOL. After almost two years, a report was written, but the AGO attorney on the Auditor’s staff advised that DOL enforcement was discretionary and the report was shelved.  We obtained a copy of the final report, which says little more than that.

We hired a young lawyer to take us to trial.  He’d just started working at mega-firm Lane Powell.  But we did not know that the supervisor of his practice group, Grant Degginger, was the Mayor of Bellevue and Mayor Degginger was presiding over Bellevue’s biggest building boom ever. Only months before, the Washington Association of Realtors and other development interests had financed Degginger’s election — and we were suing Degginger’s political support community.  Lane Powell did not disclose any of this.  Had we known, we would not have agreed to have Degginger controlling our case.

At one point we directed Lane Powell to tell the court about the corruption at DOL and AGO and its impact upon us and other Windermere victims.  Lane Powell refused.  We later learned that Degginger’s wife, a lawyer, had worked for 18 years in the Attorney General’s Office, another fact we would like to have known up front.

We scored a trial victory against Windermere.  But during the course of trial preparation and subsequent appeals, Lane Powell bled our case for legal fees — and then gave away important awards.  We had already paid the firm $313,808.  As soon as we could practically do so, we dismissed Lane Powell (August 3, 2011); that day, Lane Powell filed a lien of $384,881.66 plus interest against our upcoming Windermere judgment payout.  

Two months later, on October 5, 2011 (before we received the payout), Lane Powell sued us for the money.  Its lawsuit was assigned to Richard D. Eadie, whose wife was a Windermere agent/broker; he was himself a beneficiary of Windermere’s retirement plan.  In violation of the Code of Judicial Conduct, Eadie did not disclose this to us. 

On the same day it filed suit, Lane Powell served discovery requests, demanding we produce in discovery all communications we had with its attorneys on any subject whatsoever — not just matters pertaining to Lane Powell’s lawsuit — thereby waiving all attorney-client confidentiality on all subjects.  The message was clear: “Pay up, or your confidences will be revealed.”  We believe that is extortion under color of law.  (Judge Eadie first granted, and then denied he had granted,  discovery protection.)

Lane Powell told provable and repeated lies to Judge Eadie; when we provided documentation proving the lies, Eadie simply ignored it all and incorporated the lies in his rulings. He hammered us with one unfair decision after another.  Then we found out about his Windermere connection and asked him to recuse (step down).  He refused.  He then dismissed our defenses and counter claims and approved an award of $842,734.67 to ex-Mayor Degginger and his colleagues at Lane Powell.  

We appealed, using an excellent lawyer.  The Court of Appeals misrepresented the issue on appeal and affirmed the judgment.  The Supreme Court — even knowing that Judge Eadie kept his Windermere connections secret while trying two Windermere whistleblowers, that Lane Powell lied in court, and that Judge Eadie had knowingly incorporated those lies into his rulings — refused to grant us an appeal.  (Story at http://www.everyones-business.org)  

Grant Degginger is now chair of the Public Disclosure Commission … 

We have filed a Complaint with the WSBA — complete with more that 4,000 pages of documentation.  (Synopsis at http://www.everyones-business.org/BarReport/Synopsis.pdf )

But WSBA will take no action, further encouraging corrupt lawyers in big law firms and government agencies.  What a racket.  

 

My Story…. Bill Scheidler

chief activist at www.CorruptWA.com and www.CorruptWashington.com

 

I discovered a county official was defrauding me and other retired/disabled individuals by deliberately misstating statutory language. The attorney I hired to sue the county was then “extorted” from representing me by using his Bar license as leverage to force him off the case.  I filed a Bar grievance against the lawyer for his breach.  The Bar Association dismissed the grievance in order to  “protect the attorney and the county in their extortion scheme which was to deprive me of my counsel so as to save the fraud being perpetrated by the county upon me and all retired/disabled citizens”… no other lawyer would take the case because of the risk to their Bar license should they represent me against the county’s fraud.  The WA State Bar, in dismissing the grievance against the lawyer “delegated back to me” the task of investigating my grievance stating that the Bar would “re-open the grievance” if a “judicial finding of impropriety” was obtained.  No lawyer would take my case to find a “judicial finding of impropriety”.  So I sued “pro se”.   After more than a year of discovery, depositions and motions, the judge dismissed the case against the attorney under “CR 11″ (one week before trial by jury) and awarded the very attorney, who withdrew under the county’s extortion scheme, sanctions of $132,000.  On appeal, the entire $132,000 was reversed as manifestly unjust and a consequence of the attorney’s discovery abuses and excessive motions,  but remanded for reasonable fees.  On remand a successor judge (a judge never before sitting or hearing any evidence) re-awarded sanctions of $120,000.  On appeal of that award as a violation of the previous Appeal’s mandate, and that a successor judge has no authority to make a decision on facts he never heard, a violation of law- RCW 2.28.030(2), the clerk of the court of appeals, refused to file my opening brief and then the”clerk” dismissed the appeal for failure to file an opening brief.  A motion to modify the clerks unilateral decisons to not file and then dismiss for not filing was dismissed and, as is the custom, sanctions of $4000 were levied against me for bringing a “frivolous motion”.

 

There is still more….  I then filed a ‘citizens criminal complaint’ against the clerk for not filing papers delivered to him – a violation of the statute that lists the duties of court clerks, one such duty is “to file ALL papers delivered for that purpose”.  This ‘criminal complaint’ is authorized under a court rule.  The judge REFUSED to allow me to file this criminal complaint.  I then filed a recall petition, a constitutional right, to remove the judge from his ‘elected office’ because he refused to allow me to file a criminal complaint against the clerk of the court of appeals who violated the law by not filing my paper and then dismissing my appeal for not filing.  This “petition to Recall”, which is a constitutional right, was blocked by a judge.  An appeal was made directly to the WA State Supreme Court (a statutory procedure in “voter” issues)  …. AND of course the Clerk of the Supreme Court refused to file the appeal!

Question for the readers is: Who let the pigs out? 

Pedophile

Perhaps “we the people ” should file Recall Petitions against any elected official who spits on the civil rights of citizens the way Becker, Dwyer, and Lau did in favor of a piece of shit from Bellevue named Grant Degginger ( Degginger is also the one who gave Gold Bar’s water boy Karl Marjerle a job after public records confirmed that he sabotaged Gold Bar’s water wells and stole from the City. Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay’s wife quashed the criminal charges as a political favor for a pedophile from Snohomish County named John E. Pennington and his mistress Crystal Hill.  Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg) plead guilty to bank fraud while she was sitting council member in 2005. Crystal Hill Pennington and John E. Pennington are being sued for RICO violations in US Federal Court with more RICO suits ready to go July 2015 as well as a defamation suit for John Pennington’s Sky Valley Chronicle postings.

” In the eye of the storm we uncover one layer of the rotten onion”

OnionThe Gold Bar Reporters are first to report on Washington State corruption. This time its pretty juicy stuff and its involves several Spokane attorneys linked to stealing, elder abuse, fraud and WA State Bar hearing officer Lin O’Dell and her partner Mark Plivelich. Mark Plivelich is a man convicted of murder in 1988.

As we correctly reported last week, the Washington State Bar Office of Disciplinary Counsel is in this shit pretty deep.  Specifically, Washington State Bar’s lead counsel Linda Eide, Chief Hearing Officer Joseph Nappi Jr., and Washington Bar Hearing Officers Lin O’Dell ( who also used an alias of Lin Worthington) and James Spurgetis.

Here’s why we began investigating the WA State Bar for corruption.

In April 2013, and after the Snohomish County Daily Herald uncovered part of the story about Executive Aaron Reardon,  Kevin Thomas Hulten, and Jon Rudicil were criminally harassing Anne Block on the county’s lucrative welfare system, Anne Block filed a 10M tort claim upon Snohomish County on April 22, 2013.  In her tort claim, Block noted that Gary Haackenson, former Deputy Director, turned over Kevin Hulten’s files on his desk directly linking Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe Beavers and John E. Pennington to criminally harassing private citizen and county reporter Anne Block.

John E. Pennington was no stranger to Anne Block.  Block has been investigating John Pennington for four years  after public records from King County ( Redmond) District confirmed that John Pennington had a prior conviction for criminal harassment and had violently assaulted his pregnant wife Ann. Police reports from the City of Duvall (WA) confirm that John Pennington kicked and punched his pregnant wife in uteral area just three weeks prior to her delivery.   Pennington was charged with criminal assault, his guns were removed from his home in Duvall and he lost his Homeland Security Clearance.

In May 2013, and within one month of County Prosecutor Sean Reay and Margaret King receiving that tort claim, Reay and King began writing a series of 32 WA Bar complaints against Block.  WA State’s Constitution prohibits the use of public resources and funds for private use.   John E. Pennington was never a client of Block’s only a political appointee who Block had been investigating for five years.

What we wont discuss here is a future RICO suit that its in the works against Reay, Hulten, Beavers, Eide, O’Dell, Nappi, Reardon, Hill, King, Kenyon, and Pennington. The purpose of this blog is to outline how we uncovered one of the largest corruption scandals in Washington State’s history and how the Washington State Bar’s Office of Disciplinary Counsel is involved or as we correctly reported ” In the eye of the storm there sits a rotten onion.”

Onion

So here’s a layer of the rotten onion we uncovered over the last six months. It all began after being criminally harassed by John Pennington, Crystal Hill,  Kevin Hulten, Aaron Reardon  and Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe Beavers on a county controlled blog spot titled The Sky Valley Chronicle,  reporter Anne Block began requesting public records from the Washington State Bar’s counsel Kristian Schimpff.  Instead of Ms. Schimpff answering public records requests ( as mandated under new WA State Supreme Court rules), Ms. Schimpff did what most cockroaches do when the light goes on, she obstructed access to our records.

Knowing that Snohomish County was involved in criminally harassing Anne Block, we requested records from various agencies all over the stat. our request sought “ all records sent between and among any agency employees or contractors and the WA State Bar.” What we got back from King County flipped the light switch, and resulted in the first series of many more investigative reports to follow.

In 2013, a Seattle Police Officer hired to screen visitors to the King County Court house located on 2nd Ave in Seattle “ Tripped” an attorney named Kathryn Abele. Ms. Abele is a large abrasive woman who towers over most men. She weighs over 255 pounds, she is approximately 6 ‘ 4 ‘ and she is severally hearing impaired. According to Ms. Abele she is often verbally harassed by government officials as she enters the court house. One day as she entered to the courthouse for a hearing, a Seattle Police Officer tripped her. Ms. Abele rightfully exercised her constitutional rights to file a criminal complaint against the officer, but instead of investigating Ms. Abele’s criminal complaint the Seattle Police Department decided the best way to deal with Ms. Abele’s criminal complaint was to solicit the assistance of WA State Bar’s investigator Vanessa Norman.

From email communication retrieved from King County, we know that Vanessa Norman solicited at least fifty Seattle Police Officers to file WA Bar complaints against Ms. Abele. From emails it’s clear that the Seattle PD did exactly what Ms. Norman requested of them, like they had been through this before – a pattern exposed. Emails going back and force look more like a porn movie than that of law enforcement or ethical attorneys. In one case, an officer appeared to be having an organism over soliciting other Seattle officers to file complaints against Ms. Abele as well.

The emails were an eye opener, and certainly one layer of the rotten onion, but it wasn’t the big clincher. The clincher was the emails between and among Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office, the WA State Bar, and the Seattle PD conspiring to harm solo practitioner Kathryn Abele.

What’s transpired as a result of a citizen filing a police report should not have happened. Snohomish County Prosecutor Dave Hayes assisted the WA State Bar in violating Ms. Abele’s civil rights. Hayes illegally used public resources to spy on Ms. Abele all in effort to assist the WA Bar State to go after poor attorney Kathryn Abele for exercising her constitutional right to file a police report.

As our readers can imagine, we were curious to know what really transpired so we made some phone calls including a phone call to Kathryn Abele. Ms. Abele’s first words to us were “ I did not lie. That Seattle police officer tripped me.” Our response was simple: “We’ve seen enough email communication to state that we believe you 100%, because we’ve seen the email communication between the WA State Bar, King and Snohomish County to know who the liars are.”

After talking to Ms. Abele, we decided to make a public records request for all records turned over to the WA State Bar as a result of their complaints against Ms. Abele. King County turned over 5 videos of a police officer tripping Kathryn Abele.   And of course we turned copies over to Ms. Abele. According to Abele the WA State Bar did not turn over 2 of the five videos during her discovery request. The two videos that the WA State Bar counsel Collin Farrell and Sachia Powell withheld exonerated Ms. Abele. From videos four and five it’s clear that the Seattle Police Officer did in fact trip her.

With no surprise, the cockroaches from the WA State Bar, Ms. Sachia Powell, Vanessa Norman, and Mr. Colin Fallin   were contacted for comment both refused. But since we are open government supporters, we decided to shine a little light on the cockroaches who decided to violate Ms. Abele’s civil rights.

But that night around 3 AM I woke up from a good dream thinking “ what if the WA State Bar actively solicits complaints in this same fashion from other government agencies and its employees?” And what we got back from various agencies suggests that our suspicions that the WA State Bar is running a racketeering for profit organization are “right on target.”

Once Gold Bar Reporter Anne Block had reason to believe that the WA State Bar was guilty of racketeering, and Snohomish County Prosecutor’s phone records and City of Gold Bar’s law firm’s attorney bills were involved as members of their Enterprise, Gold Bar Reporter Anne Block  “disassociated” with the WA State Bar by refusing to renew her license in 2014.

At the time, Block wanted to know why the WA State Bar would involve themselves in the pile of shit Snohomish County and the City of Gold Bar created by hiding records, but after an initial search, we found the golden egg, emails between WA State Bar lead counsel and John E. Pennington. The emails were sent from John Pennington to WA State Bar lead counsel Linda Eide suggesting an extramarital affair between the conspirators.  We later learned that WA Bar Linda Eide is the sister-in-law to Senator Tracey Eide, a good friend to John Pennington. This probably explains why Linda Eide and John Pennington’s emails suggest that a close personal relationship exists because it does.

Block hired private investigators to dig deeper. What they uncovered about John Pennington was not surprising. Mr. Pennington’s criminal conduct includes but by no way is limited to these facts: John Pennington is one of two prime suspects in the rape of 5 year old child from Cowlitz County, WA; he plead guilty to hospitalizing his ex-fiancé () Ms. Becker) in Oregon in the early 90s; he fled the State of California after two boys from church in San Diego claimed that Pennington had sexually abused them; Pennington created fake companies in Santa Cruz California, Pennington falsified his time sheets in Snohomish County; Pennington created a company titled JOHN E. PENNINGTON to avoid paying WA DOR taxes on; police reports from the City of Duvall, Washington, document that Mr. Pennington has major anger management issues; and the best for last, declarations from King County confirm that Pennington ( age 40 at the time) took inappropriate showers with his six year old child. According to King County court records, John Pennington was caught exiting the shower with his six year child while his penis was eye level with the victim/child.

At the time Block thought “ why would the WA State Bar lead counsel Linda Eide put her career on the line to violate the civil rights of a member for issues that the WA Bar has no legal jurisdiction over such as protected First Amendment protected activity?”   What we uncovered is best illustrated as a uncovering layers of a rotten onion.

Onion

This post is just a part of many series to come on this subject.  Here’s what we discovered after investigating the following WA State Bar employees Linda Eide, Joseph Nappi Jr., Lin O’Dell, and James Spurgetis. All of the coconspirators were contacted for comment but all refused.

Linda Eide and John Pennington knew one another well. Linda Eide is the sister-in-law to one of John Pennington and Senator Steve Hobbs’s closest Olympian allies, Senator Tracy Eide. Senator Eide is not from Snohomish County but public records confirm that she was a frequent visitor to disgraced former Executive Aaron Reardon. How we know this is simple: emails received via Washington State’s Public Records Act confirm that on January 13, 2013, Senator Tracy Eide ( who is not from our District) was having meetings with convicted criminal harasser Kevin Thomas Hulten, Senator Steve Hobbs and disgraced Executive Aaron Reardon.

One month later, two reporters from the Snohomish County Daily Herald exposed part of the story. Why they did not finish the story is best described by one of the reporters for this reason “ the county is fucked.”   We agree. Had the Daily Herald actually reported on what was inside King County’ Major Crimes files as it relates to Snohomish County’s posting on the county employees’ blog spot the “Sky Valley Chronicle” the county would have collapsed. But we say “ so what. The only way to clean up this shit is to expose it; let the sun shine and let it shine with a dam flood light.”

So this brings us to what we learned about the WA State Bar’s lead counsel Linda Eide, Hearing Officer Lin O’Dell, and Chief Hearing Officer Joseph Nappi Jr. “ Little RICO gang.” Hearing Officer James Spurgestis’s conduct will be exposed in the very near future, but his conduct certainly ties back to Chief Hearing Officer Joseph Nappi Jr.

We’d like our readers to know that we tried countless time to contact Linda Eide, Joseph Nappi Jr., and Lin O’Dell to no avail. Ms. O’Dell’s boyfriend Mark Plivelich’s shady shit which includes WA State Bar hearing officer Lin O’Dell will be discussed at length.

Lin O’Dell is a nurse with extensive ties to Spokane Washington. According to O’Dell Linked In page, she never really practiced law.  See Lin O’Dell _ LinkedIn

It’s our understanding that to be a WA State Bar hearing officer one must have been engaged in the practice of law for ten years prior to appointment. Lin O’Dell appears to be the exception. What we do know is O’Dell is personal friend of Chief Hearing Officer Joseph Nappi Jr.

O’Dell’s Linked In page clearly documents that she is not qualified to litigate a dog bite case let alone grievances filed against bar members. This begs to question: who picked her and why?

That answer came last week from one of our records request sent to the WA State Bar. Emails between the WA Bar and the Law Firm of Ewing and Anderson in Spokane confirmed that Chief Hearing Officer Joseph Nappi Jr. handpicked Lin O’ Dell as the hearing officer. In fact, Joseph Nappi used the law firms computers and resources to further the efforts of their Enterprise. We suspect this was a big mistake for Mr. Nappi’s law firm, but won’t address that issue at this point.

I suspect by now our 6,000 readers would like to know how Joseph Nappi Jr. fits into all of this. Well its simple!

untitled

Lin O’Dell and her partner Mark Plivelich’s property records search shows a real pattern of misconduct and fraud.

One example taken from Spokane County property records show the duo enjoys purchasing homes from hearing officer Lin O’Dell’s terminally ill clients. O’Dell serves as their guardian, depletes their trust accounts, leaves the client penniless and then her and Mark Plivelich purchase the terminally ill clients’ homes. In one Spokane County record, O’Dell purchased one of her client’s homes for $15,000 even though the property was valued at $208,000.00.   We have been in contact with the family members, and will be posting a separate blog with their statements very soon.

This is just a taste of what we found as it relates to Lin O’Dell.   Since Chief Hearing Officer Joseph Nappi Jr. practices in Spokane probate, and since he handpicked Lin O’Dell  and James Spurgestis from Spokane, our readers can make your own assumptions about what his involvement is. But we are investigating Mr. Nappi’s involvement by cross referencing his cases. As for Lin O’Dell cases; Washington taxpayers can be assured that we are cross referencing every client she has. Our findings as of today, suggest that her convicted killer boyfriend and Lin O’Dell are involved in a lot of shady shit. Shady shit we intend to shine a heck of a lot of sun shine on, so stay tuned  for more of  ” As the cockroaches scatter, part II.”

“ We promise is going to be good, kind of like how many licks does it take to get to the center of tootsie roll pop? “   Our favorite is the chocolate one, and we count 44.

John Scannell Washington State Supreme Court ” The only honest candidate”

cropped-quote-the-fight-for-justice-against-corruption-is-never-easy-it-never-has-been-and-never-will-be-it-frank-serpico-1674311.jpg

 

“Zamboni John” Scannell files for
Washington State Supreme Court Position #7

Former Hockey Zamboni driver John Scannell has announced he will seek election to Washington State Supreme Court Position # 7. Position # 7 is currently held by Debra Stevens of Spokane.
 
Currently, an attorney residing in Bremerton Washington, John is well known throughout the state for his legal work on behalf of Washington citizens. He filed some of the first lawsuits in Washington under the landlord tenant act and has represented both landlords and tenants since then. He has founded and been active in both tenant and labor unions. He was called the “bureaucrat’s nightmare” by the Seattle Times for his lawsuit on behalf of intermittent workers which won millions of dollars for City of Seattle workers. He blocked the building of one stadium by challenging its public financing, and he joined other anti-stadium activists in challenging others including Safeco Field, all the way to the United States Supreme Court. He was the last man standing among anti-stadium activists, as it took the United States Supreme Court months longer to decide his suit, which held up the building of Safeco Field.
 
He won large settlements for demonstrators who were tear gassed and hit with rubber bullets during the WTO demonstrations.
 
As an attorney he made his living helping workers win their unemployment benefits and wage claims as well as drivers win their traffic tickets including speeding and red light tickets.
 
John has been one of the few attorneys in the State that has actively been supporting the American Bar Association’s criticism of Washington attorney disciplinary system. The Washington State Supreme Court is in charge of the system, but the court has come under sharp criticism for 40 years for its practice of delegating its responsibility to the Washington State Bar Association. The ABA rightly likens this to the practice of putting the fox in charge of the henhouse, with Washington being one of a few states that still continue this practice. The result is that Washington has one of the lowest attorney charging rates in the nation. John Scannell is the only candidate advocating taking the fox out of the henhouse by having the Washington State Supreme Court stop delegating its responsibility to the Washington State Bar Association.
 
Scannell will base his campaign on the issue that he will protect the rights of Washington citizens with decisions that are intelligent, just and ethical.

Judge Okrent ~ Snohomish County

Posted on August 13, 2014 by “SnohomishCountyCorruption”

Most of you know by now I am Jewish by blood, I am not real big into “religion” as it is used & abused by most folks but I still try to learn about the culture & the history.

So our local Chabad had a lecture about Tisha “B’Av & I went & the person teaching was incredible, I wrote a blog post about it even. I sat front seat mesmerized… little did I know I was listening to the devil

SOMEHOW I missed the fact that the speaker was Judge Okrent, the same Judge who I thought was actually going to follow the law but obviously had his own agenda.

For those of you who know me personally or anyone that is autistic I don’t do facial recognition, it has to be facial memorization in order for me to recognize anyone. It is really weird because I can describe someone’s face well enough for a 5 year old to draw a composite sketch of them but there is a disconnect in my head for random meetings

When I got into Judge Okrent’s courtroom, I thought I had finally found Justice for my animals & myself.He said he would keep the case in his court if I wanted, I said yes like a dumbass, little did I know that he was just making sure they could bend me over & screw me without any other Judge getting in the way.

When I sat in that Chabad I thought it so sad that this man in front of me had taken a job in “the law” instead of being the teacher he wanted to be.

When I got the oral decision, I fell to my knees & cried my heart out. I know that my “case” was perfect because an attorney who charges 100’s of dollars per hour & a very well known prosecutor gave me the outline, they warned me not to trust this Judge, one even said I would probably lose even if he came into court with me.

I don’t even remember how I figured out that this wonderful teacher & this worthless Judge were one in the same but I was talking to someone about what he did to me & once again I started crying.I didn’t even realize how bad this hurts me still everyday. Most of the pain comes from being abused by the very system that should’ve protected me & my animals.

As I get gear up for my Federal case I have to relive all of this over & over again. I keep having the same nightmares about my dogs & my cat. All I can do is pray that someone somewhere will FOLLOW the law, & that someday soon my babies will be with me & this nightmare will be over. Knowing what I know now I will do my best to make sure none of these ingrates do to others what they have done to me.

In my research I have found many many many other very questionable decisions Judge Okrent has made & they fall in line with the chain of command at the center of all of this corruption but that is for another story

I just want you to know that if you ever come across this guy RUN, change your court date, change your courtroom get the frick out of there ASAP. Seriously, he didn’t even put out a written decision on my case within the required 30 days, I had to file my appeal with no decision, & they (appeals & supreme) gave ME a bunch of crap over it. I didn’t understand at the time just how deeply he was involved in this other nonsense but I do now & I can prove it.

He is also protecting the WSBA in another case. All I can do is hope he is just a Jew by religion, not by blood as I wouldn’t want to share one single gene with this person, not one!

GRUNSTEIN

Blog Radio Interview with Robert Grundstein coming soon


Update: More public records linking Linda Eide to Ronald Meltzer ( guardian who was stealing Robert Grundstein’s mother’s estate with the assistance of Linda Eide ( one must wonder if she is receiving a financial pay off?)


Since Mr. Grundstein’s latest biography below, we’ve learned a lot about Washington State Bar’s lead counsel Linda Eide including these facts:

ATTORNEY ROBERT GRUNDSTEIN

Attorney Robert Grunstein disbarred only after he filed a WSBA complaint and sued a WSBA Board member named attorney Ronald Meltzer. Meltzer managed to use his influence inside WA Court’s to get himself assigned as a the Court appointed guardian over Robert Grunstein’s mother’s trusts totaling millions.

STATEMENT OF THE  CASE
In 2007, Robert Grunstein’s mother was sick and dying. Attorney Ronald Meltzer was Ms. Grunstein’s legal administrator.  A legal administrator is hired to look after their client’s best interests.  When Robert Grunstein started investigating where his mother’s money disappeared to, he rightfully went to attorney Ronald Meltzer with questions. Instead, Grunstein was stonewalled and Meltzer refused to answer any questions as it related to thousands of dollars missing from his mother’s accounts.  As a result, Grunstein sued Meltzer for breaching his fudiciary duties to his mother.

Attorney Meltzer used his friends inside the WSBA’s elite Board of Governors to go after Mr. Grunstein claiming he was practicing law without a license. At the time Robert Grunstein filed suit his WSBA license was ” inactive.”  Meltzer never denied stealing thousands of dollars from Mr. Grusntein’s mother, but instead he used his friend and WSBA’s lead RICO attorney Linda Eide to go after Grunstein’s WSBA license.

It’s gets even better, so hold onto your seat!  WSBA’s LInda Eide then used Attorney Meltzer as a prime witness against Mr. Grunstein inside a WSBA disciplinary proceedings. That’s right, the WSBA’s lead RICO attorney Linda Eide called her friend and thief Ronald Meltzer to testify against a non-active attorney whose only crime was trying to stop Linda Eide’s friend and WSBA Board member Ronald Meltzer from stealing his mother’s money.

WSBA’s lead criminal counsel Linda Eide refused comment for this story.  ” Silence is golden” and we’ve never been sued.


WRITTEN BY GUEST WRITER ROBERT GRUNSTEIN, a former Washington Bar member

First Amendment Defender Robert Grunstein’s true account of how the Washington State Bar’s political operative and lead counsel Linda Eide’s political attack forced Mr. Grunstein to take a closer look at corruption inside Washington State’s little whore house, also known as the Washington State Bar Asssociation.
“Vendetta” tells the hidden story of an attorney who was pursued across the country by several sets of police and banned from all Ohio court review after publishing an editorial critical of a Bedford Ohio judge. It exposes the sequestered and organized corruption of a politicized state judiciary that intentionally failed on an alarming scale from the local to the federal level. The failure not only represents a ruined structure, but the grass-roots deterioration of American character. “Vendetta” shows how elected judiciaries fail and how judges, police, prosecutors and even court clerical staff turned institutions charged with maintaining ethical standards into criminal, personal interest groups.
“You don’t make any money if you tell the truth in court. You have to lie or you lose your credibility.”

What should be a matter of national concern has been underpublicized among a population of over-educated salesmen (aka, attorneys). These pale conventionalists from Washington State have embraced fear and the failure of American Constitutional culture in exchange for income. The purveyor of this fear is Office of Disciplinary counsel and their staff of third rate minds and 9th rate characters.

The history of Disciplinary counsel is curious. As part of the State Bar, it is a state agency created by statute but is run and controlled by the Supreme Court.  It used to staffed by one or two representatives, but after the docket of complaints grew in the late 1980s and early 90s, the office was increased on an ad hoc basis. The accumulated files of complaints were administered but then there was nothing to do. The attorneys hired by Disciplinary Counsel were second- rate attorneys no one else wanted and who had no lateral mobility. Remember, in the Public Sector, stupid is better. So, the office adopted an agenda to maintain itself and now has 35 employees who are charged with finding fault and extorting legal fees from people it targets; under the protection of the WA Supreme Court.

The irony is staggering and should induce existential nausea in everyone other than Joseph Stalin and Pol Pot. The WA Supreme Court is charged with reviewing cases administered by the business it runs, and the WSBA Office of Disciplinary Counsel is a business. Every year, scores of attorneys (almost exclusively sole practitioners) are charged by the bar. A common scenario is for the Bar to over-prosecute and then to negotiate with the targeted attorney for a lesser disposition in exchange for attorney fees to the bar for every activity it conducted against the attorney and the waiver of a hearing.  Average amounts for a settled dispute without hearing (Admonition/suspension, etc.) are five to seven thousand dollars. That’s several hundred thousand to the Bar every year.

If you choose to go to hearing, the initial hearing will be conducted by the Bar and a Hearing officer it chose using rules it wrote in cooperation with the state Supreme Court. The initial determination to proceed against you is made by a Bar committee.  Your first administrative review will be before a panel chosen by the Bar. Your final appeal will be before the WA Supreme Court which is asked to judge a Respondent who provides income to the business the Supreme Court administers in the event penalties are confirmed.

Can anyone say Separation of Powers? This is the type of conflict for which Bar brings charges on a regular basis.

It’s a fact of life that maintenance values are stronger than moral values and anyone who challenges the bar is punished.  Attorney Karen Unger was pursued for over two years. It cost her between 70 and 80 thousand dollars to defend against bad charges which were finally dismissed by a hearing officer who said “there is nothing here” and added that Bar appeared to have sequestered evidence in Unger’s favor.  That hearing officer was never used again. An attorney named Schaefer was disciplined for exposing a judge who took bribes. Anton Miller was disciplined for writing a satirical poem about the WA Supreme Court.

In 2006, the ABA did a study on attorney discipline in WA State. It ordered the bar to get discipline out of the state bar and said “the fox was in charge of the hen-house”. This was disregarded.

Robert Grundstein Suits in Washington and Vermont Federal Courts
See 12-35792 (9th circuit) and  13 CV 300 (Vermont Fed. District)

Grundstein is a resident of Vermont who had been on inactive WA status for over a decade. He came to the attention of the bar after he published an editorial about a corrupt judge in Ohio. This judge was subsequently removed from office during the FBI raids in Cleveland, Ohio.  Prior to the raids, a vendetta was pursued against Grundstein and perjured charges were brought against him. The prosecutor, judge, county sheriff and even the docket clerk connected to his case were removed from office. The prosecutor, sheriff and docket clerk were imprisoned.
Bar knew of this happenstance in 2007 and chose to not pursue charges. Grundstein spoke with the head of ODC, Douglas Ende and explained what was going on in Ohio. 4 years later, bar changed its mind and decided to bring charges. The Complaint asked for probation. Grundstein sued to enjoin the hearing in Federal Court since he claimed there was no venue or jurisdiction in WA State and that WA case law insisted the Bar must bring an action within one year of the time it learns of an offense. (there is no statute of limitations for bar actions!)

At hearing, bar amended its Complaint to ask for disbarment. This violates every rule on Due Process there is. The Complaint is not a moving target.
After hearing, it removed all Grundstein exculpatory evidence from the record.  Bar engaged in obstruction of justice, spoliation of evidence, fraud and federal and state crimes. The evidence included letters of recommendation and decisive exhibits in his favor. There were 42 in all.  The Bar claimed Grundstein didn’t submit any evidence, even though it was entered over 80 pages of transcript and provided to bar before, during and after hearing again.  When asked about “Brady v Maryland”, the bar said “Brady” rights didn’t apply to the Bar.

The Hearing Officer (Lisa Hammel of “Williams and Williams”; principal, Kinnon Williams is on the State Bar Judicial Selection Committee) permitted this to happen and refused to hold Linda Eide, Office of Disciplinary Counsel prosecutor, responsible.

Grundstein filed for an appeal to the Supreme Court within 18 days. The Supreme Court would not hear an appeal despite the fact that it’s rules allow 30 days to file and that WA State is one of the few states whose Constitution guarantees the right of appeal.

To expose the criminal behavior of the State Bar, Linda Eide, Lisa Hammel and the entire structure, Grundstein sued in the W. District of WA and Vermont. The W. District of  WA abstained. As it turns out, the judge made his career in King county and refused to embarrass the partisan relations of a politicized judiciary.  Vermont should be an entirely different scenario.

Fascism does not necessarily include concentration camps, racism and shrill rhetoric. It’s the combination of political, economic and legal power in a small group of people only accountable to themselves.  The judiciary becomes and interest group and rules on the basis of income distribution among favored people and the maintenance of professional status. This is worst where the judges are elected. WA State is one of only 4 states which has no limits on judge campaign contributions.  The only people who can participate in such a legal system are the ones who should not have access to the administration and character of a legal system.  The FBI raids on the legal administration in Cleveland, Ohio and the special prosecutions in  Phoenix, Arizona were necessary to intercept what were essentially coup d’etats.

The Washington State Bar has proven that the best and most lucrative device for corrupt parties is an ethical system.

” Attorney Michael Kenyon’s dirty bag of secrets “

When’s a scum bag always a scum bag.  ” Meet John “Theodore Bundy” Pennington.  Also known as the man who caused thousands of deaths in the Hurricane Katrina Debacle and 44 deaths in Oso Washington mudslides.

In the late 1980’s, after flunking out of Vanderbilt College in Tennessee,  John Pennington moved to a small suburban city just outside of San Diego California.  While in San Diego, Pennington meets his new victim, who believe he legally married, so are calling her ex wife # 1.

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, Pennington made an unsuccessful run for an open Republican State Rep.  After a landlslide loss for Pennington, he again headed west.  This time to Oregon, where he met his next victim Loraina ( thank you for talking me and thanks for following the reporter).

In the early 1990’s Mr. Pennington plead guilty to criminal harassment after he hospitalized his finance in Oregon.  As a result, John Pennington fled from Oregon to Vancouver Washington.

While in Vancouver, 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 Colwitz County.

It worked, 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.

Some sources claim that John Pennington was engaged in an extramarital affair with Jennifer Dunn, but the only evidence of an extramarital affair was with Senator Jeanna Holmquist.  Holmquist refused to comment as to what her relationship was to Pennington.
In 1992, a 5 year old girl was kidnapped, raped, and then tossed along a Colwitz County road like a piece of trash.  According to Colwitz County Sheroff’s Office, John Pennington became one of two prime suspects for the following reasons: (1) Pennington operated a coffee delivery route within six blocks of wherre the child was dumped; (2) he drove the same car; (3) Pennington was in the area at the time of the child rape; (4) Pennington’s picture from 1992 is almost a complete match to the child and witness’s sketch drawing of the pedophile; and (5) Pennington relentlessly convinced his ex wife to call the police attempting to divert attention away from himself and onto another man.

According to police records, Mr. Pennington has deep seeded anger management issues ( but he did pass one anger management class) and major issues with racism, just as his father (a Nashville police officer) does.  John Pennington, former DEM for Snohomish County, has countless child abuse and spousal abuse complaints against him; Mr. Pennington is a racist according to people close to him he said ” I only support abortion when a white woman is raped by a black man” Just like Hitler, Pennington has a real disdain for minorities

“Birds of the same feathers flock together as do pigs and swine.

According to sources close to John Pennington he is also an abuser of prescription pills, and was detained at the US Mexico Border for having narcotics on his person while coming back into the US.  Pennington has never denied this allegation.
From 1992 to 2005,  John Pennington’s violence grew with his ex wife. # 2 .  From pushing her down stairs and constant physical abuse are just some examples of what we know to be true.

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 uterual area.  A real salt of the earth kind of  man.

Since Ms. Laughlin was a Duvall city council member at the time, the City of Duvall sought a Special Prosecutor.  The prosecutor assigned to prosecute wife beater John Pennington came from the law firm of Kenyon Disend.

In 2009 when Pennington assaulted Laughlin, this was his third domestic violence charge.   This should have amounted to jail time for Pennington.

NOW COMES, Michael Kenyon.  A hater of open government, and the attorney responsible for hiding public records involving former Mayor Colleen Hawkins.   Kenyon’s hiding of public records in violation of RCW 42.56 is well documented through the case involving  local Gold Bar residents Joan and Robert Amen.

Records we received document that attorney Michael Kenyon made an illegal agreement with the City of Sammamish to hide Hawkins email communication, and then refused to release public records claiming that he no longer had them.  According to Washington State Attorney General Nancy Krier such agreements are not permissible under the Public Records Act.  A fact that we are not sure that she shared with Kenyon.

In 2008 one of  Kenyon Disend’s lawyers ( Special Prosecutor) managed to quash John Pennington’s domestic violence charges. Soon thereafter, the Law Firm of Kenyon Disend received two lucrative contracts, one with the City of Duvall and the other with the City of Gold Bar.

Then 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’s that we requested under RCW 42.56.  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 $840,000.00 hiding former Mayor Crystal Hill’s public records ( emails) documenting that she was practicing law without a license, and John Pennington making racist comments about President Obama and running illegal ACCESS background checks in violation of RCW 10.97.
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 Pennington’s racist comments and his illegal background checks.  We affirmatively state that Kenyon and Pennington’s Racketeering scheme equates to over $1,000,000.00 stolen from Gold Bar residents so Michael Kenyon can line his suits with gold.

Gold Bar city attorney Michael Kenyon and WA State Bar lead counsel Linda Eide are personal friends.  Linda  Eide will be sued in US Fed Court with an assignment of a foreign judge to oversee our RICO complaint.
Attorney Michael Kenyon refused comment.  We proudly call Michael Kenyon a scum bag, and John Pennington a pedophile.

 

 

 
Correction: We stated that Anne Laughlin provided us with court records as it relates to John Pennington, when in fact a source close to Anne Laughlin provided records to us.

Snohomish County Daily Herald publishes intentionally false story as political favors to advertisers

22e77a45014944360c6d1e311c5ad523

Sn

Snohomish County Daily Herald Editor, Scott North,  publishes intentionally false article as political favor to to its largest advertiser Geoffrey Gibbs, an attorney with Anderson Hunter, guilty of fraud. Although Geoffrey Gibbs was charged with “fraud” by the Washington State attorney General’s Office, he was able to get himself appointed to the WSBA Board of thieves (Governors).

This just after Block was notified that she was nominated for the Bunting Award from Washington Coalition for Open Government just behind the Daily Herald.

BuntingAwardLettersBlockLeft_ArrowClick to the left to view Washington Coalition for Open Govt’s letter

What was exposed by http://www.snocoreporter.com documents massive WA State Bar corruption involving attorney Geoffrey Gibbs using his influences with WA Courts to “fix cases” and his influence has lead to 43 % of all disbarred lawyers inside  Washington State coming from Snohomish County. In comparison, King County, which houses 1/2 of all Washington State attorneys amounts to only 11 % of disciplined lawyers in Washington State.

My mother’s always said ” if it smells like coffee, it probably is.”  But the Snohomish County Reporter has investigated Snohomish County’s corruption and posted her findings below.

See http://snocoreporter.com/

But most of you know me as the journalist and author who resigned from the Washington State Bar citing massive corruption.  Honest as they get; never been convicted of a crime, and pay more than my fair share of taxes.

As my readers can imagine, I was surprised to receive an email while in sitting on the shores in the great state of Maine writing my final chapter in my book ” No sunshine where the cockroaches roam ”  in its final chapter ” Reforming the Washington State Bar, taking politics out of the practice of law” published by the Snohomish County Daily Herald’s Editor Scott North which meets the level of actual malice.  I demanded that the Herald publish an immediate retraction, but the Herald’s liability is already assumed under Washington State law.

HOW SCOTT NORTH’S STORY MEETS THE LEVEL OF ACTUAL MALICE

Our legal counsel stated that when a news source publishes a story it knows to be false, Our Supreme Court held it’s actual malice.  Scott North knew that Gold Bar activist Anne Block was not ” suspended” as a result of the Washington State Bar’s ongoing investigation, but he made a conscious decision to publish this false story anyways.

Our Court’s held in New York Times v. Sullivan that when a news company publishes stories that that it knows to be false, actual malice is presumed.

See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York_Times_Co._v._Sullivan

The Washington State Bar’s own website confirms that Anne Block’s icense was suspended for ” non-payment” of dues , not as Scott North falsely published as a result of an ongoing disciplinary investigation.

See https://www.mywsba.org/LawyerDirectory/LawyerProfile.aspx?Usr_ID=37640

Furthermore, Block’s resignation letter, which Scott North copied in on, stated her reasons for resigning, all which included her desire to write and expose corrupt government officials including those connected to the Washington State Bar Office of Disciplinary, mainly attorneys Linda Eide and Lin O’Dell.

See http://www.heraldnet.com/article/20150727/NEWS01/150729193/%27Implausible%27-Gold-Bar-lawsuit-gets-tossed.

What our readers may not know if that Anderson Hunter is one of the Herald’s largest advertisers and I republished articles documenting that Snohomish County Commissioner Geoffrey Gibbs is guilty of fraud as stated and published by the Washington State attorney general’s office.  See http://www.snocoreporter.com

The Snohomish County Daily Herald intentionally publishing a false story incorrectly reporting ” the Bar suspended Block’s license as an ongoing disciplinary investigation ”  is simply NOT true and Scott North’s only record as it relates to this issue was a copy of Block’s resignation letter to the Bar stating that she was resigning after public records obtained from Snohomish County via RCW 42.56 documented that Snohomish County’s former Director ( removed and placed on paid administrative leave  after he caused 43 deaths in Oso mudslide debacle) and WA State lead counsel Linda Eide were “plotting and planning” via email a WSBA complaint as a result of Block’s First Amendment protected activity months (Sept 2013) before any investigation started against Block.

The United States Post Office records documented that John E. Pennington and Crystal Hill ( nee Berg convicted of bank fraud in 2005 and charged with child abuse of a six year child in November 2008) were “bribing” a Washington State Bar hearing officer named Lin O’Dell, using her convicted killer boyfriend Mark Plivilech using public post office box  Mark Plivilech set up a post office box in Duvall Washington. O’Dell and Pliivlech live five hours away in Cheney Washington, but within weeks after O’Dell was assigned to investigate political appointee John Pennington’s complaint solely based on First Amendment protected activity, all accurate stories on John E. Pennington’s molesting two boys in a San Diego church and the fact that John Pennington is a prime suspect in the rape of 5 year old little girl from Cowlitz County.

After seeing emails  ( received via the Public Records Act RCW 42.56)  between and among Washington State Bar lead counsel  Linda Eide and John E. Pennington documenting beyond any shadow of a doubt  a personal relationship existed by the corrupt duo in Septembers 2013,  Block resigned from the WA State Bar citing massive corruption, criminal harassment pedophile and former Director John E. Pennington and convicted bank fraudster Crystal Hill ( nee Berg) and further told the Washington State Bar to stay out of her First Amendment protected activity.

Once Gold Bar Reporter Block received a legal opinion that the Snohomish County Daily Herald’s article as stated herein does in fact meet the level of actual malice needed to prevail on a defamation lawsuit, the Snohomish County Daily Herald’s parent company, located in Victoria British Columbia Canada, Black Press, was been notified that it will be sued in U.S. Federal Court for “defamation.”

U. S. Federal Court retains jurisdiction when a company being sued by a Washington resident is an out of the Country defendant.

Contrary to the intentionally false statements Snohomish County’s Daily Herald Editor Scott North published, the Washington State Bar has not taken any disciplinary action against Block because it has NO jurisdiction over a non-client political pedophile John E. Pennington’s complaint based solely upon First Amendment protected actively as a result of Block exposing John E. Pennington as the pedophile he is, and his wife Crystal Hill (nee Berg) for bank fraud (2005 conviction in Sno Co Evergreen District).

But Scott North did get part of his story correct. The Washington State Bar was notified that they will be sued in U.S Federal District under RICO.  An issue Judge Jones, a member of the Washington State Bar’s Board could not address in Block’s RICO suit because the 9th Circuit Chief has issued legal opinion that all WA State Bar members must recuse themselves from cases involving the Bar when the Bar is a defendant.

Spokane attorney Lin O’Dell is now under fraud investigation as a result Our investigation. Lin O’Dell and Plivilech have been stealing client’s identity and monies, almost all elderly clients with no chance of defending themselves. A story the Gold Bar Reporter broke.

The Snohomish County Daily Herald has 24 hours to print and publish a “retraction” and issue an apology letter to Block as it relates to its intentionally false stories,  otherwise Block will exercise her legal right under the 7th Amendment resulting in a defamation suit to be filed in US Federal District Court.

With Gold Bar Reporter Anne Block promising a lawsuit against the Snohomish County Daily Herald within a week, let’s see how the Snohomish County Daily Herald responds to its editor Scott North’s intentionally  publishing a false story as a favor to its largest advertiser Anderson Hunter only after we started exposing Anderson Hunter’s lawyer Geoffrey Gibbs for fraud and lying on his judicial application as Snohomish County Commission.

According to legal counsel, when a public official files false statements it’s a crime in Washington State.
