Arthur West does Gold Bar

Long time open government supporter and activist Arthur West has filed suit against the City of Gold Bar, after Snohomish County Superior Court held in Block v Gold Bar that the City violated Our Court’s holding in Hobbs v State Auditor, 183 Wn.App. 925 (2014).

The City’s public records officer is Joe Beavers, Gold Bar’s former Mayor who has misappropriated over $1,000,000.00 hiding computer crimes, amounting to Racketeering, involving Gold Bar’s former Mayor Crystal Hill ( nee Berg, convicted of bank fraud in 2005) and disgraced former Director John E. Pennington ( man responsible for causing 43 people in the Oso Washington mudslides to suffocate to death and the rape of a 5 year old girl from Cowlitz County).

In Hobbs, Our Court held that an agency must give a reasonable estimate of time. The agency’s estimate must clearly must state when the records requested are expected to be released, but once it fails to do so, it’s deemed to be an automatic violation of RCW 42.56.  See Hobbs v State Auditor.

Since 2010, the City of Gold Bar, mainly Joe Beavers, has been refusing to provide a timely estimate, but instead simply places hundreds of records requests on the City’s priority log without a specific date in violation of Hobbs, refusing to answer requests for over five years in many cases.

As just one example of just how blatant the City’s disregard for the Public Records Act ( PRA) has become, in 2014 I requested a copy of the City’s Budget from former Mayor Linda Loen, a simple records request that still remains outstanding as of today.

In several instances, the Gold Bar Reporters caught Beavers and the former clerk, Laura Kelly (who was fired for theft of public funds), answering public records requests for friends, including former Mayor Crystal Hill and Sky Valley Chronicle owner Ron Fejfar, without ever being placed on the City’s priority log.

Joe Beavers ( former financial officer who bankrupted an engineering firm in Clinton Connecticut, 2001, forcing his early retirement), Crystal Hill ( Nee Berg, convicted of bank fraud 2005),  Linda Eide at the Washington State Bar Association ( caught destroying and altering evidence in attorney Robert Grundstien’s case), attorneys Margaret King and Michael Kenyon, and Sky Valley Chronicle owner Ron Fejfar are being sued under RICO with depositions expected to start early in 2017.

In March 2014, Arthur West was given Washington Coalition for Open Government Key Award for his continuous and outstanding contributions in advancing open government issues here in Washington State.

On March 11, 2014, Snohomish County Court held in Block v Gold Bar, that the City of Gold Bar had violated RCW 42.56, when it refused to provide records to me for over five years.

The City’s trouble have just begun as the City has ten additional requests in the same boat – over five years old- and continues to thumb its nose at the Public Records Act (PRA) by refusing to provide a estimate as to when the City intends to answer records requests. This violates our Court’s holding in Hobbs.

As of today in Block v Gold Bar, the City has withheld over 330 emails for over 2000 days, and recently turned over records with metadata dating back to May 2010 ( in the same year the records were actually requested).  Metadata is to electronic records as DNA is to unlocking human existence; it tells us when the records were created and who created them.

One can only speculate as to why the City refused to provide records it had readily had available in its possession for over five years.  Stupid is a stupid does, but one resident said  “ I saw Joe Beavers at the doctor’s office, a doctor that treats dementia related diseases.”

Lately, pictures of Joe Beavers illustrates just how mentally unfit he is.  One open government supporter said  “ he smells and looks like a homeless man.”

Snohomish County Superior Court held in March that the City violated the PRA, thus I am entitled to costs, and other fees associated with suit, including attorney fees at $220 per hours plus a per day penalty of up to $105 per day for each of the 330 plus emails withheld.
The Gold Bar Reporters commend Arthur West for shinning much needed sunlight on the cockroaches from Gold Bar who are spitting on open government concepts I view more valuable than life itself.

I also thank Joe Beavers for posting defamatory articles on the Sky Valley Chronicle as I believe this gave rise to Mr. West’s interest in the cockroaches who have ruining Gold Bar.

In 2016, Our Court also held that each page of unlawfully withheld records calls for a per day penalty for each record withheld. In my case, Beavers unlawfully withheld public records relating to WSBA complaints he ordered former Gold Bar clerk Penny Brenton to write, misusing City staff and resources, thus making each complaint subject to the PRA.

 

Penalty for improperly withholding public record can be calculated on a per page basis.

See Wade’s Eastside Gun Shop v. Department of Labor and Industries, ___ Wn.2d ___ (3/24/2016) – When the Department of Labor and Industries failed to provide certain records of an investigation (which the court determined were not exempt) a penalty was imposed calculated according to the number of pages found in each document. On appeal, the supreme court upheld the trial court’s decision, noting that the trial court has discretion to determine what is a relevant record, and it did not abuse that discretion by imposing penalties on a per page basis. The court also held that the records were not categorically exempt as investigative records since the Department of Labor and Industries did not prove that withholding them was essential to effective law enforcement.

We have read your letter to the California AG and agree with it completely regarding Sherman anti-trust and immunities granted to private organizations via state action immunity.

You may be interested in following and possibly contributing with friend of the court briefs, the following cases currently pending before the ninth circuit court of appeals.

Scannell v. WSBA case #14-35582

Scheidler v. Avery et al case # 15-35945

Block v. Snohomish county case #15-35569

In all three cases, the plaintiffs have raised Sherman anti-trust and RICO charges against the Washington State Bar Association and the issue of immunity plays a crucial role.

Scannell was disbarred for obstruction because he refused to turn over attorney client privileged information to a disciplinary counsel who was attempting to prosecute his client for the unauthorized practice of law in Virginia. Although a federal judge ruled that the bar’s action of recommending disbarment violated the 6th amendment right to counsel, the disbarment could not be undone, and the bar could not be sued because of quasijudicial immunity. While the ninth circuit has not recognized the discipline with a reciprocal disbarment (believed to be only the only attorney who was able to keep his 9th Circuit attorney license).

In Scheidler, the plaintiff was prevented from obtaining counsel for his suit because the prosecutor has used his influence with the WSBA to threaten disciplinary action against any attorney who represents Scheidler. In one case, he lost a case because he counsel was threatened on the eve of trial.

In Block, the plaintiff was an award winning journalist who exposed corruption in Snohomish county when she printed a story about the Chief executive using county funds to conduct a sexual affair with two employees in Europe. The county executive was forced to resign over the revelations, but used county resources and employees to retaliate against Block by soliciting bar complaints over the internet. Block was recommended for disbarment for writing a series of exposes about the director of the Department of Emergency Services. That director, recommended approval of the building of homes on the Oso mudslide site, which later resulted in the deaths of 43 residents. The Seattle Times later won the Pulitzer prize for exposing how the director and others knew in advance that the site was dangerous.

In all three cases, the plaintiffs have alleged that the bar has steered the market away from sole practitioners, minorities, and political enemies of the leadership. They allege that over 40% of all discipline occurs in Snohomish county, which is where influential members of the Board of Governors and Disciplinary board reside and use the bar process to target their opponents.

They allege that the board targets minority attorneys for discipline in numbers far exceeding their proportions of the membership in the bar.

They also alleged that virtually all discipline is directed at sole practitioners, even though sole practitioners are only 30% of attorneys.

Their complaints also allege that defense attorneys are not investigated under policies that are not approved reviewed or approved by Washington State Supreme Court.

Finally, their complaints allege that this steering of the market toward favored attorneys is done during the investigative stage, which is never reviewed by the Washington State Supreme Court in the 96% of the cases that are never charged. Their complaints allege that the low number of attorneys charged is reflective of the fact that the bar is the proverbial fox in charge of the henhouse.

In spite of these serious allegations, all which are presumed to be true under an FRCP 12 motion, their cases have been dismissed. In Scannell’s case, although a California judge ruled that Washington court rules violated the sixth amendment right to counsel, and Scannell’s RICO, Sherman Antitrust allegations, and Civil Rights charges were not covered under the Rooker Feldman doctrine, (the usual defense for cases like this), he ruled that quasi-judicial immunity prevented prosecution for damages under all three causes of action, while ruling that injunctive relief was available for civil rights causes of action. The North Carolina Dental Examiners case had not yet been decided at the time the final orders were issues, but had been issued before briefing in the ninth circuit.

In Block and Scheidler, their cases were dismissed by federal judges who Block and Scheidler contend violated the code of judicial conduct when they refused to recuse themselves when they were members of the Washington State Bar Association. The ninth circuit had earlier ruled in Scannell case and two others, that the membership required disqualification of Washington judges. Under common law, individual members of an association are liable for the debts of the association.

In the Block case, the judge refused to allow Block to amend her complaint to include the bar, even though such amendments are freely granted. In Scheidler, the judge granted quasijudicial immunity, without offering any reasoning as to why the North Carolina case did not apply.


Very close to breaking the largest corruption (RICO) scandal in Washington State

74497___gustavorezende___Kids_6_03

SUNSHINE in Washington State is coming!

One local news reporter said to us ” Snohomish County is screwed!”  His statement came right after records were released from Snohomish County Prosecutor’s office showing two compeling factors:

1.  In every self insured county in Washington State, there are “Nazis” who are placed in high positions, mainly prosecutors/lawyers, whose job it is to go after attorneys who question or sue government agencies; and

2.  County employee Nazi spies are all members of the WA State Bar Office of Disciplinary Council.

We are working on a very big RICO scandal involving high ranking members of Washington County government who are all connected to the Washington State Bar’s Office of Diciplinary Council.

We have a hypothesis that we’re working on, but at this stage we are confident to report that WE are going to break the LARGEST RICO SCANDAL In United States history and it will reform the Washington State Bar and every self insured agency in Washington State.

Open government, and the principles of Our founding fathers, means more to me than life

74497___gustavorezende___Kids_6_03

” I have but one life to live and shall be for the betterment of my society as a whole.”  Anne Block, Gold Bar Reporter, journalist and author.

In 2014, when Gold Bar’s former Mayor Joe Beavers offered me money to go away, I said ” not until you comply with the Public Records Act.”  So here we are six years later; after attorneys Michael Kenyon, Margaret King, Ann Marie Soto and Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe Beavers misused over $1,000,000.00 of taxpayer monies covering up crimes committed by two government thugs, John E. Pennington and Crystal Hill.

The sun is starting to shine again inside the little community of Gold Bar.  Joe Beavers and Crystal Hill are about to be exposed in one of the largest RICO scandals in Washington State history, and involves a fake online news paper set up to criminally harass anyone who questions local government here in Snohomish County.

But all is not lost!  Today the United State Supreme Court just held that the Board of Dental Examiners is liable for the actions of its directors if they failed to actively  supervise their employees.  Sound familiar?  Well it should, because this issue correlates with the WA State Supreme Court’s inactions in monitoring several political attacks that WA Bar Office of Disciplinary Counsel attorneys Linda Eide, Lin O’Dell, Joseph Nappi Jr., Craig Bray, and Scott Busby are doing to any Bar member who speaks out or tries to tackle corrupt activities of agency employees or judges. Simply put, we have enough evidence to say they are guilty of RICO.

For those of you interested in following what’s going to happen to the WA State Bar Office of Disciplinary Counsel, you should read http://www.scotusblog.com/case-files/cases/north-carolina-board-of-dental-examiners-v-federal-trade-commission/

Lets just say reform for the WA State Bar Office of Disciplinary Council is coming from the 9th Circuit!  We say ” Let the sunshine in and let it shine until the cockroaches are removed from their positions!”

The sooner citizens say ” we’ve had enough, the sooner the corrupt bastards ruining our home land will be gone from public office.

Snohomish County Washington Open Government Supporters Seek Prosecutor Mark Roe’s Recall

Residents of Snohomish County are pleased to announce that a Recall for Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe will be filed within the week.   Reason, misappropriation of public funds. 

Before reading, please see the RICO complaint filed in U.S. Federal District Court last week.

http://twitdoc.com/view.asp?id=172712&sid=3P9K&ext=PDF&lcl=RICO-files.pdf&usr=Sunshine2015K&doc=252796214&key=key-vCgcyry8MG3PdTevxTaE

I’m looking into how much discretionary spending Mark Roe has without first getting council approval but I’m pretty sure that Roe’s 100 K  ( 50K to Aaron Readon and Jon Rudicil, and 50K to convicted evidence destroyer Kevin Hulten) exceeds his discretionary spending.  

 

For those on this email chain confused imagine this.  One day while trying to get money out of an ATM machine a masked man comes up behind you and just as your retrieving money from the ATM the masked man pistol whips you in the back of the head and takes your ATM cash.  As you regain consciousness, he’s gone.  

 

Then the following week, the same man does exactly the same thing again.  This time you kind of get a glimpse of him, because he’s wearing a mask you still cannot see him. So again he gets away with your cash.

 

Then one month later, the same man does it again, but this time two news reporters from the Snohomish County Daily Herald happen to see the masked man assaulting you, so chase after  him for a few blocks and notice that he’s a Snohomish County executive officer. 

 

The two Herald reporters report about it on the front page, kind of something like Scott and Noah did on the Feb 13, 2013 Herald titled “ Reardon’s Office Linked to Harassment.” 

See http://www.heraldnet.com/article/20130214/NEWS01/702149999

 

But the real slap in the citizen’s face comes when the citizen then finds out that the County Prosecutor, let’s call him Mark Roe, decides “ this guy knows too much, so much that he can bring me down for gross PDC violations with McBee Strategies in D.C, so well what the hell I have hundreds of thousands of dollars of Snohomish County taxpayer dollars that I can use to cover this up, so he writes a $50K check to the man that assaulted the ATM taxpayer. 

 

Then pissed off that the County employee will never face justice, you exercise your constitutional right under the 7th Amendment to file a civil suit against the County for the criminal assault and pain and suffering you experienced.  Then instead of investigating the tort claim, the Prosecutor’s Office, including Margaret King ( no surprise who worked for the City of Gold Bar) Sean Reay ( who seems to be Roe’s right hand political bitch inside and outside the office) and Prosecutor Mark Roe decide the best way to handle the lawsuit is to go file WA Bar complaints against the person assaulted at the ATM machine because they find out s/he has a WA Bar license and has been pretty vocal about the corruption inside the Prosecutor’s Office.  None of the WA Bar complaints has anything to do with conduct as an attorney.

 

And why of course Snohomish County Prosecutor Seth Fine just happens to sit on the WA Bar Office of Disciplinary Counsel Board and its lead counsel Linda Eide happens to be a personal friend of an Executive Officer John Pennington, who Block the taxpayer victim has been reporting about for years for his crimes against the taxpayers of her community.  

 That’s exactly what Mark Roe is doing in Block v. Snohomish County at el.  The ATM taxpayer then files a criminal RICO complaint in U.S. District Court alleging a conspiracy to deprive her of civil rights.  But the story does end here.

 

Mark Roe then decides that the City of Gold Bar’s former Mayors were all part of the conspiracy to harm the ATM taxpayer, so he ( Roe) drafts up another illegal contract to provide a personal legal defense to Gold Bar and its former Mayors with county taxpayer monies. 

 

But opps, there’s a legal problem for Mark Roe, it’s called Wash. State Constitution prohibition against using taxpayer monies for personal use. For Roe, this is just a technically; who cares about the Constitution.  Opps, we do and we just happen to have the financial resources and knowledge to press the issues for the next 30 years.  

For us, ” The Constitution means more to us than life itself, and its worth fighting to protect from all invaders, foreign and domestic, problem is, opps, the invaders are Snohomish County public officials. A fact that we could care less about.”  

 

Folks there’s a word for Mark Roe, it’s called corruption, cover my own ass because convicted criminal Kevin Hulten knows that I ordered the WA Bar complaints to be filed against the citizen who scrutinized my office; I ordered the assault, and I covered up for Pennington’s domestic spying crimes for years.  Why, because everyone in my office has using the Sheriff’s Office to run illegal background checks for years, just another day at the office.  Who cares about the U.S. Constitutional provisions against unreasonable search and seizure or Wash. State’s privacy laws or the Public Records Act ( PRA) .  Screw the laws of Washington State, this is Snohomish County.


As for changing the Public Records Act, Mark Roe was part of advocating for change ( but honest Sen. Dean Taako told Sister Sara that there will be No Get Out of Jail Free Card for what they did to me) and still is, ( kind of hard to cover up your crimes as a public official with open records laws) but this time instead of having a sick demented old man from Gold Bar to march down to the legislature attempting to change the public records  laws, Mark Roe sent Sister Sara Di Vittorio.  But ole Sister Sara slipped up at the Sunshine Committee Meeting saying “ We’re out of money to protect county employees.”   Since when was a public records officers job to protect county workers?  Welcome to Snohomish County!      

 

Hence why I filed a RICO complaint.  Roe’s most recent actions of misappropriating our money to provide a legal defense to Gold Bar and its criminal public officials only solidifies my posts that Sno County is not only involved in hiding of our records, its  supports what my investigators uncovered that the County illegally gained access into files that they had no legal right to,  then as one former Gold bar council member blew the whistle about John Pennington disseminated via email my non-conviction criminal history records ( which consisted of a lot of political protests detainments) and how our stellar county employee John Pennington illegally used his Homeland Security clearance to gain access into a relative’s mental health records ( and because she and I look so much alike) John Pennington emailed Gold Bar public officials her mental health records claiming that I changed my name and my sister was really me. 

But John Pennington’s mental health records were illegally sealed by Judge Eric Lucas in Pennington v. Pennington.

As for me, I have never been treated for or ever suffered from mental health issues of any kind. However, I believe that people who do have an absolute right to privacy that should not be evaded simply because a relative who lives 3,000 miles away exercises her legal right to access John Pennington’s email communication in 2009.

 

 

And just how a sister and brother of mine in Mass got involved, I’ll leave that for another post because both are planning to file their own criminal complaint asking for the Mass Attorney General  ( who has police power in Mass unlike WA) to bring John Pennington, Joe Beavers and Crystal Hill back to Mass for prosecution, noting that Mass Statute of Limitations toll when its out of state residents. So sad for the RICO gang; Mass has the strictest laws on disseminating mental records ( not even doctors are permitted to disseminate mental health records).

 

So there you go, the story of why Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe Beavers stole over 1M dollars of water and street money to hide public records and why Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe is protecting John Pennington. Criminal RICO in its finest. 

 

And they think I’m a thorn in their sides, they haven’t dealt with my sister and her husband yet.  But they will be soon.

But that’s not it,  John Pennington is also a prime suspect in the rape of a 5yr child in Cowlitz County, and every where he travels ( according to his travel records) children are missing.  Another story us real reporters are working on.   

See https://snohomishcountycorruption.wordpress.com/2015/01/18/so-why-does-ms-block-keep-accusing-john-pennington-of-being-a-pedophile/

 

These facts support my position that Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe’s Recall is not only coming, but its vital to a healthy democracy. 

John Pennington will be brought to justice for his crimes regardless of whether it takes me 30 days or 30 years.  Pennington and those who assisted him in committing crimes are the real threat to a free society and must be brought to justice regardless of the time or money.  Just think of how different Our World would be today if someone exposed Adolf Hitler long before World War II.

Atifete Jahjaga said:

Democracy must be built through open societies that share information. When there is information, there is enlightenment. When there is debate, there are solutions. When there is no sharing of power, no rule of law, no accountability, there is abuse, corruption, subjugation and indignation.

 

 

 

 

 

Source tells Gold Bar Reporters Gold Bar’s Mayor has resigned

An insider from Gold Bar tells the Gold Bar Reporters that Gold Bar’s new Mayor Linda Loen resigned citing massive corruption in the City’s financial affairs. Aka, hundreds of thousands of dollars missing from the City’s water
and street funds.

We tried contacting Ms. Loen for comment today with no response.

According to Gold Bar’s clerk Denise Beaston, Linda Loen was not in all last week.  Denise, not Mayor Loen, sent out this week’s council agenda noting that there will be a changing of the guards at City Hall.

One local Gold Bar resident said ” Loen had no idea what she got herself into… the city’s law firm and Gold Bar’s former Mayors Joe Beavers and Crystal Hill Pennington managed to suck her into their RICO activities. Sad that she wasn’t smart enough to say no before get sucked into Beavers and Hill’s crimes.”

According to the City’s financial records, Crsytal Hill and Joe Beavers stole over 700,000 from the the City’s street and water funds to fund their hatred of Washington State’s Public Records Act.  Interesting to note that water and street funds are Enterprise funds and cannot be used for any reasons outside their intended purpose.

At this point we are reporting that Linda Loen has resigned, and Bob Strom will be Gold Bar’s next Mayor.  According to Washington State elections, if  Linda Loen did resign there must be a special election this August.

Our hats go off to council member Lee Hodo who at the City’s last council meeting basically called former Gold Bar Mayor Joe Beavers a liar.  Hodo was upset that Joe Beavers created a fraudluent water comp plan to hide his misappropriation of the City’s water and streets funds. The Dept of Health rejected the City’s Beaverized Plan which alleged that the City water system, which contains asbestos pipes dating back to 1919, do not need to be replaced until 2034.

As a result, the City was forced to spend another $50,000.00 to correct the Beaverized water comp plan.

Stay tuned, we should know for certain on Tuesday.

Snohomish County public records confirms John Pennington spent most of county time using hacking software

Pedophile

While 44 while residents in the small community of Oso, Washington, suffocated to death, the bonehead in charge spent most of his day “hacking” on the taxpayers dime, public records from Snohomish County confirm.

Also see another reports investigation of just how and why the City of Gold Bar is going bankrupt over hiding John E. Pennington and Crystal Hill Berg Pennington’s crimes http://snocoreporter.com/follow-up-on-our-duvall-pennington-investigation/

Three months ago, the Gold Bar Reporters sent Snohomish County Department of Information Services ( also known to use as Dept of Disinformation Services) a public records request for ” copies of John Pennington H_Key logins for any computer or electronic device he used. Last week, Snohomish County complied with our request giving us 27,000 of Pennington’s H_key log in codes. The County sent the first installment with many more to come as it relates to  ” Our Little Michael Pedophile Brownie.”

From John Pennington’s computer H_key log in codes here’s what we know so far:

1).  Pennington spent at least 6 hours a day working on his private contracts for his private company.

2.)  Pennington spent at least 2 hours per day working as an adjunct teacher for an online school titled American Military University, a for profit school that Senator Tom Harkin called ” fraud”  on PBS special titled ” Education Inc”

3.)  Pennington spent a large number of hours “hacking” into others computer systems.

4.)  Pennington spent several days posting on his blog spot titled ” The Sky Valley Chronicle”

5.) Pennignton used a portable hard drive to evade the Public Records Act( so he thought but our readers should not worry because we’re going to file another suit and depose him about this in 60 days).

We wrote Snohomish County Council members an letter stating ” Is this why taxpayers of Snohomish County are paying John Pennington a $150,000.00 a year welfare check ?”

Then last week, someone from Duvall, Washington, “hacked” into the Gold Bar Reporters Twitter account.  Once we became aware of the illegal trespass and theft, our Twitter account was temporarily suspended, and we contacted Twitter letting them know that we intend to send a subpoena for all files relating to the Gold Bar Reporter’s Twitter account.

Our readers should know that John Pennington is not a resident of Snohomish County, contrary to what he and Gold Bar’s “boob flashing Bubba’s Roadhouse Mayor Crystal Hill” and John Pennington posting on their blog posts titled the Sky Valley Chronicle.
While 44 suffocated to death in the second deadliest preventable natural disaster also known to Snohomish County residents as the Oso mudslides, dumb as post pedophile John Pennington criminally harassed people, is guilt of forging his time sheets, approving home building on the mudslide site even though geologists for years said no building and FEMA had a mitigation plan to buy out home owners, and now we caught him hacking into others computers on county taxpayers dime.

As a result of Snohomish County’s latest public records release, we are now confident to add one skill besides pedophile to John Pennington’s resume, a hacker.

” Attorney Michael Kenyon’s dirty bag of secrets “

WARNING: KEEP YOUR CHILDREN AWAY FROM JOHN E. PENNINGTON

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 meet 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 landslide 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.

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 where 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  for having narcotics ( non-prescription pain pills) 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.

Public 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 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, John E. Pennington has a real distain for minorities
