Whistleblower turns over public records involving criminal history of former mayor; Snohomish Herald published an intentionally false story as a “wag the dog” diversion as a political favor

scott-north_jpeg_256x256_q100_crop-smart

In July 2009, Scott North, from the Snohomish County Herald admits he personally approved this false story about Gold Bar’s Mayor Crystal Hill  resigning citing harassment. Why was simply stated by another Snohomish County insider  who said   “Scott North is lazy and has been wined and dined by Snohomish County Prosecutors Jason Cummings, Mark Roe, and North has his head up Adam Cornell ass so far, I’m surprised he can breathe. It’s common knowledge that Crystal Hill was being passed around like a door mat…” a Snohomish County insider who we have dub ” Fed up” told the Gold Bar Reporter earlier this week.

For those of us who live and work inside Snohomish County, it’s pretty clear that the Herald is a failing newspaper since Scott North took it over. If Donald Trump had one issue right, he is correct that America no longer has news reporters.  Fake news.

Scott North’s actions below illustrate quite nicely North’s interest is not truth in reporting, it’s rubbing shoulders with political officials so he does have to work for a living.  Fake news President Trump complains about.

 


 

Imagine a convicted criminal named Crystal Hill, citing for harassment, convicted of bank fraud, and had a warrant issued for her arrest, is citing harassment because our investigation of her yields the below truths about her criminal acts.

What does the Herald report, poor little convicted damsel in distress, had to resign because we caught Crystal Hill misappropriating Gold Bar monies.

 

As the Honorable US Supreme Court Justice Anthony Scalia said in Referendum 71 Question: If you don’t like the heat in the kitchen, don’t get involved in politics.

 


As falsely reported by the Herald, here in Snohomish County, in July 2009

 

Gold Bar Mayor resigns citing harassment

 

Gold BAR — Mayor Crystal Hill resigned this week, citing relentless harassment from someone who claims to live in the small mountain town.

Hill, 30, says the person using an alias has been bombarding her, her family and her Seattle employer with e-mails making claims about her personal life.

She said the person has accused her of drug use, supplying drugs to city staff and having an affair with a fired city employee.

Those allegations are false, Hill said, adding that she feels she has little recourse to fight them as a public official in the town of 2,400 people.

She also said she’s been followed and watched in her home and fears for her children, ages 11 and 6.

She also said she’s been followed and watched in her home and fears for her children, ages 11 and 6.

“It got to the point we don’t know if we are going to get a brick through the window,” said Hill, who turned in a resignation letter on Monday, five months before her term was to expire.

Hill said she believes the person who is sending the e-mails under the alias Michael Broaks is connected with a blog critical of the city. The woman who runs the blog fled a lawsuit against the city for withholding public information and has made 47 public records requests since July 2008.

The blogger said she has never e-mailed or followed Hill or her family. She’s fighting corruption as a public watchdog, she said.

The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office investigated Hill’s complaints, said Kevin Prentiss, a sheriff’s office spokesman. The case was closed because of insufficient information, he said.

Kelly Broyles, the Gold Bar planning commission chairman, said Hill has been an effective mayor in the midst of difficult circumstances.

“I don’t always agree with her decisions but I believe she has made decisions based on what she thinks is best for the city,” he said. Hill said she believes the blogger’s multiple public records requests are an abuse of the public records law and a form of harassment.

So far, the lawsuit, alleging the city had withheld documents during a public records request, has cost the city about $55,000 in attorney fees, according to the city.

“This has not been about documents,” Hill said. “This is a means to harass me and the city.”

Hill plans to finish her bachelor’s degree and attend law school. She’s working part-time now as a paralegal in Seattle.

 

When Hill took over as mayor in 2006, she inherited a cash-strapped city. Since then, she said, she’s left the city books in better shape. She said she put in 60-hour weeks as mayor. The job pays $300 a month.

“I think I’ve done a good job,” she said. “I’ve worked really, really hard. I just have to be a mom and my family needs to come first.”

Councilman Joe Beavers, as mayor pro-tem, is expected to fill in as mayor for the rest of Hill’s term. The council expects to select a mayor pro-tem from the remainder of the City Council on Tuesday night. Then, the council has 60 days to appoint someone to fill the open city council seat until January.


 

Truth and reporting, New York Times v Sullivan

From July 2016 to April 23, 2013, John Pennington and Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg) made countless attempts to have the Gold Bar Reporter restrained from reporting on their criminal racketeering conduct ( some of which is outlines herein).  On April 23, 2017, Pierce County District Court held that the Gold Bar Reporter was in fact a news reporter protected under the First Amendment.

In other words, the Penningtons,  now 4th attempt to obtain a ” prior restraint” against the Free Press  ( Gold Bar Reporter) was DENIED for the 4th time on April 23, 2017 in Pierce County District Court.  John Pennington and Crystal Hill Pennington are beng sued for RICO now pending in the 9th Circuit.

In July 2009, Scott North knew at the time was that Ms. Hill Pennington ( Crystal Berg) had quite the little extensive criminal history, which included allegations of “harassment” many years before she became Mayor.

What we learned last year was that Crystal Hill Pennington filled out an online application to be a contractor for FEMA, teaching Emergency Management Classes.
So imagine, US taxpayer monies are being used to fund a convicted criminal, who plead guilty to bank fraud ( 2000,2005) ,and should have been charged with child abuse.

A complaint has been filed with the Office of Inspector General citing “fraud” against Crystal Hill Pennington, because according to US Office of Procurement, persons guilty of fraud are NOT eligible for any federal contracts.

 Truth is an affirmative defense, the Gold Bar Reporter has never been sued. 


Pages from SO08-24992_Redacted

In November 2008, Gold Bar’s Mayor Crystal Hill did violently and criminally assault a child in her care. Gold Bar’s Chief received a criminal complaint against Crystal Hill for abusing a six year child in her care. Because Gold Bar’s police Chief was involved in an extra-marital affair with Crystal Hill,  he asked for the case to be referred to another Snohomish County Sheriff Officer, Jeff Ross.

Snohomish County Sheriff’s Officer Jeff Ross received extensive physician reports documenting that while Ms. Hill was babysitting the six year old girl, Crystal Hill did violently and intentionally assault a six year old child in her care.

In 2009, the Gold Bar Reporters heard a little chatter about Crystal Hill’s extensive history of abusing children from a former lover of Ms. Hill’s named Fleshman Cooper.

According to Cooper’s ex-wife, ” Crystal consistently abused our children while they were in the care of  Fleshman, and Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office knew it.  After complaints for abuse were filed with Snohomish County,  Fleshman was left with either loosing joint custody or disposing of Crystal. Thankfully, he chose his children.”

In 2008, then Mayor Crystal Hill covered up Karl Majerle’s sabotaging of the City’s water system here in Gold Bar.  Why is simple, Karl Majerle was extorting Mayor Hill with exposing her past criminal history. . A criminal history that involves bank fraud in two states, Washington and North Carolina, 2000, and 2005, respectively.  In North Carolina, Ms. Hill spent time jail after failing to adhere to her criminal diversion program.  According to North Carolina, Crystal Hill still owes the state $109. 00 for court fines relating to the same.

Gold Bar’s current public records officer Bonnie Jones stated ” I’m not turning over Crystal Hill’s nude photos between her and Karl Majerle.”

For almost ten years, Crystal Hill Pennigton ( nee Berg) has spent the last ten years criminally stalking me on a foe online newspaper set up by Aaron Reardon, a Seattle Times reporter named Christopher Schwarzen, and John E. Pennington titled the ” Sky Valley Chronicle.”

According to Gold Bar City Clerk Denise Beaston,  Gold Bar’s new Mayor Joe Beavers was allowed to log in and post any article he so desired. When asked under oath in December of 2016 whether or not he was a “blogger’ on the Sky Valley Chronicle, Joe Beavers had to admit he was cyber-stalking the Gold Bar Reporter.

Why can be best described as racketeering, covering up and quashing criminal charges by Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe, Seth Fine, Miguel Tempski, Adam Cornell, and Sara Di Vittorio as political favors.

According to an insider who gave an interview last week after we caught Snohomish County Prosecutor Caroline Darrow and Amy Nay withholding public records involving the County ‘s prosecutor’s little RICO scam, Snohomish County Prosecutors are withholding public records only when Washlite Board members Lori Shavlik, Arthur West and I request access to public records.   The whistleblower gave an interview saying ” I sick of it….”

The whistleblower clearly gave us what we needed to prove beyond any shadow of a doubt that Snohomish County Prosecutors are tampering with public records only when Shavlik, West or the Gold bar Reporter requests records.

Last week, a whistleblower gave us access to public records Snohomish County illegally withheld involving Snohomish County’s Director of Emergency Management Director John E Pennington’s ACCESS criminal history searches and copies of Gold Bar’s Mayor Crystal Hill’s criminal ACCESS files. All public records that Sara Di Vittorio and the Snohomish County Prosecutors and Sheriff’s Office withheld from the Gold Bar Reporter for over nine years.  Our lawyer tells us that there are no statute of limitations on silent withholding, thus a new lawsuit is being pursued.

 

In January 2016, newly elected Executive Dave Somers terminated John E. Pennington after public records released document John Pennington did nothing except criminal harass Gold Bar Reporter, right from Snohomish County offices and with use of county taxpayer resources.

It was a perfect storm for the poor little town of Gold Bar, as there is little that the City can get over on the Gold Bar Reporter, a person with a Juris Doctorate degree, education in this case has proven vital to exposing Crystal Hill’s crimes against Gold Bar.

But Ms. Hill didn’t cover up her criminal history by herself. Ms. Hill had the assistance of Sean Reay, a Snohomish County Prosecutor who is married to the head of Evergreen District Court Laura Twindale. When the below criminal prosecution file was sent to Ms. Twinsdale, she looked the other way as a political favor to then Executive Aaron Reardon. Of course at the bequest of her husband and Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay ( police reports show this case was sent to Reay first).

In December 2008, Crystal Hill moved in with married Snohomish County Director of Emergency Management John E. Pennington.  Instead of resigning as Gold Bar’s Mayor, Ms. Hill forged public disclosures filings, and refused to resign her seat until July 2009.  All Mayors must be living inside the City.

Former director John E. Pennington’s criminal history, a man who just cant seem to keep his hands to himself.

Gold Bar’s then Mayor wanna be Joe Beavers assisted Crystal Hill with not reporting the sabotaging of the City’s water system – a federal crime- covering up Ms. Hill’s criminal history.   Karl Majerle was extorting Crystal Hill with releasing to the public what he knew about her criminal history, and he was also engaged in an extra marital affair with Hill, according to a neighbor.

Why is best described by former council member Jay Prueher ” Joe wanted to be Mayor so bad, he made a deal with Crystal.  Crystal was stealing from the City…”

In late 2013, the Washington State Auditor’s office issued findings against the City of Gold Bar stating inside its audit report ” there’s $200,000.00 missing from the City and not one employee can state where it went.”

Over the last ten years, Snohomish County Prosecutors Office, Sean Reay, Miquol Tempski, Sara Di Vittorio,  Adam Cornell, Mark Roe, and employees Amy Nay,, Dayna Tapendorf, and Tina Murphy have been trying get the Gold Bar Reporter charged with harassment for investigating and reporting on their racketeering conduct ( fraud, honest services violations, criminal harassment, extorting Bar licenses, and countless perjury statements filed in Pierce, King and Snohomish counties), and now with the latest release of former Mayor Crystal Hill’s criminal history, we are now a little closer to helping Gold Bar survive before they bankrupt the little City of Gold Bar with their racketeering crimes committed against the Gold Bar Reporter for reporting the truth .

Below is part of the extensive racketeering crimes John E Pennington, Joe Beavers, Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg) and countless lawyers, including Mike Kenyon, Ann Marie Soto, Linda Eide, Lin O’Dell, Doug Ende, Supreme Court Justice Barbara Madsen, Seth Fine, Sean Reay, Shannon Ragonesi, Amanda Butler, Margaret King, and Miquol Tempski.

 

Pierce College, Tacoma, instructor, caught forging court record

penny

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


 

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

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

RCW 9A.60.070

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

(1) A person is guilty of issuing a false academic credential if the person knowingly
(a) Grants or awards a false academic credential or offers to grant or award a false academic credential in violation of this section;
(b) Represents that a credit earned or granted by the person in violation of this section can be applied toward a credential offered by another person;
(c) Grants or offers to grant a credit for which a representation as described in (b) of this subsection is made; or
(d) Solicits another person to seek a credential or to earn a credit the person knows is offered in violation of this section.
(2) A person is guilty of knowingly using a false academic credential if the person knowingly uses a false academic credential or falsely claims to have a credential issued by an institution of higher education that is accredited by an accrediting association recognized as such by rule of the student achievement council:
(a) In a written or oral advertisement or other promotion of a business; or
(b) With the intent to:
(i) Obtain employment;
(ii) Obtain a license or certificate to practice a trade, profession, or occupation;
(iii) Obtain a promotion, compensation or other benefit, or an increase in compensation or other benefit, in employment or in the practice of a trade, profession, or occupation;

(3) The definitions in this subsection apply throughout this section and RCW 28B.85.220.
(5) Knowingly using a false academic credential is a gross misdemeanor.

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

pennington-pierce-county-2

pierce-college-penny-credentials

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

 



 

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

casey-original

After John E.Pennington forged the document:

10-14

rowexhibitnewimprovedversion_page_1

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


 

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

Pedophile 

John Pennington, terminated for Snohomish County

 


2000px-FEMA_logo_svg

From FEMA to Snohomish County Washington and now to Pierce College ( Tacoma Washington diploma mill), dark  secrets unearthed. Gold Bar Reporters were the first to report on John E. Pennington’s criminal conduct, a small portion of our report is outlined below


MEET JOHN ‘ THEODORE TED BUNDY” PENNINGTON

John Pennington was a troubled youth who, according to one source “had a major drug problem by the age of 16.”  So it’s no surprise that in the late 1980’s, after being kicked out of Vanderbilt College in Tennessee after raping a female college student, John Pennington moved to a small suburban city just outside of San Diego California.

While in the San Diego area,  John Pennington meets his new victim, who believe he legally married, so are calling her ex-wife # 1, Carla M.

Two years later, John Pennington fled from Southern California, again heading home to Nashville, only after two small boys made allegations of sexual abuse against him while on a church camping trip.

While in Tennessee, John Pennington made an unsuccessful run for an open State Rep. seat.  After a landslide loss for Pennington, he again headed west. This time to Oregon where Pennington meets his next victim.

Mr. Pennington plead guilty to criminal assault 1 and harassment  ( His ex filed suit for damages Washington County Case # D911027SC) after he hospitalized his fiancé in Oregon and stole items from the community.

As a result, John Pennington fled from Oregon to Vancouver Washington. While in Vancouver Washington, John Pennington meets his next victim. Sadly, they soon married.

While working in a coffee delivery business, John Pennington stole coffee grinding equipment from his previous employer and used this equipment to start-up a coffee shop in Kelso. Purpose was to make it look like he was an entrepreneur ( but he is really a sociopath) as to grab an uncontested Republican seat in Cowlitz County.

It worked, the uneducated college dropout John Pennington managed to get elected to an uncontested WA House of Representatives seat. Unfortunately for residents in New Orleans and Oso Washington, he met a powerful Washington State Republican leader, Jennifer Dunn.

In 1992, a 5-year-old girl was kidnapped, raped, and then tossed along a Cowlitz County road like a piece of trash.  We sent our private investigators to Cowlitz County to talk with the lead Detective who confirmed the following facts:

John Pennington became one of two prime suspects for the following reasons:

(1) Pennington operated a coffee delivery route within six blocks of where the child was dumped after being raped; (2) he drove the same car; (3) he was in the area at the time of the child rape and could not explain his whereabouts; (4)  his picture from 1992 is a complete match to the child and witness sketch drawing of the pedophile; (5) he relentlessly convinced his ex-wife to call the police attempting to divert attention away from himself and onto another man; and ( 6) He has continuous and countless charges of child and spousal abuse, a man who cannot keep his hands to himself.

Below is the press release as it relates to John E. Pennington’s rape of a 5 year old girl from Cowlitz County Washington

 

Unfortunately for the 5 year child, John Pennington meets a Kelso Washington city attorney named Michael Kenyon.

According to John Pennington’s divorce files he is also an abuser of prescription pills, and was detained at the US Mexico  for having narcotics ( non-prescription pain pills) on his person while coming back into the US. Pennington has never denied this allegation.

In 1995, John Pennington was also a member of the Washington State Militia, a group dedicated to over throwing the United States government. ” John sat around for years obsessed about getting even with the Longview Washington news reporter for reporting that John was a member of the State militia.”

From 1992 to 2005, John Pennington’s violence grew with his ex-wife. # 2, Valerie. From pushing her down a flight of stairs as well as constant physical harassment,  John Pennington never learned to keep his hands to himself.

But the case that raised our eyebrows is Mr. Pennington’s abuse on his ex-wife # 2 ( who is really ex-wife # 3) Anne Laughlin. Ms. Laughlin was a City of Duvall city council member at the time of Pennington’s assault of Anne. Anne was three weeks away from giving birth to her daughter when Pennington violently assaulted, kicked and punched Anne in the stomach and uterus. A real salt of the earth kind of man.

redmond-pd1_Page_1

pennington-redmond_Page_1

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

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

A close review of John Pennington’s Snohomish County travel records warrant a closer look into missing children in Washington, Alaska, Maryland.  Public monies allowed us to review his credit card receipts, telephone records, etc. information that another blogger turned over to authorities.

Any grown man that takes a shower with a six year old little girl is a pedophile.

Pages from Socipath John Pennington-2

In 2011, Kenyon Disend’s junior attorney, Ann Marie Soto, received an email from John Pennington via Snohomish County computers demanding that Kenyon Disend redact police reports involving John Pennington criminal harassment and assault that we requested under RCW 42.56.   There’s only one problem, at the time Pennington was communicating with Kenyon Disend’s attorney, he was not a City of Duvall employee thus no attorney client relationship existed.

We sought the advice of an expert in records issues who is of the opinion that Kenyon Disend’s redaction of police reports was not permissible under the Public Records Act.

Then a source close to ex # 2 ( or # 3 depending on what public records you believe as it relates to Pennington’s aliases) provided us with thousands of records relating to John Pennington, and those records included Pennington’s email communication with Duvall’s Mayor about how to get Pennington’s soon to be ex-wife Anne Laughlin off the City Council.

In 2009, Pennington then used Aaron Reardon’s connection to the Seattle Times reporter ( who then became Reardon’s aide) to post a story about Anne Laughlin, pretty much the same way he did to Gold Bar Reporters in February 2012. Former Seattle Times reporter Emily Heffner was contacted for comment but all she would say is ” you need to move because they are coming after you.” She never did state who “they” were, but as we stated to Ms. Heffner before, “We have only one live to give and it shall be for the betterment of our society as a whole.”

As of today, Attorney Michael Kenyon and Ann Marie Soto have bilked the taxpayers of Gold Bar over $1,350,000.00 hidng former Mayor Crystal Hill’s public records ( emails) documenting that she was practicing law without a license, and had lied on her F 1 form stating that she had never pled guilty to fraud when in fact she had plead guilty twice, one in 2000 in North Carolina and a second time in Snohomish County Washington; and John Pennington making racist comments about President Obama and running illegal ACCESS background checks in violation of RCW 10.97.

Both Penningtons are being sued for gross 1983 and RICO charges with depositions expected to start early next year.

The bigger question that Michael Kenyon refused to answer was what he gained for quashing John Pennington’s criminal charges for beating up his pregnant wife Anne, hiding John Pennington’s racist comments and his illegal background checks.

According to former Mayor Joe Beavers, John Pennington and Aaron Reardon “fixed” cases in Snohomish County Superior Court.

As a result of our six-year investigation, we are confident to report that attorney Michael Kenyon assisted John Pennington is committing felonies. Attorney Michael Kenyon and John Pennington will be sharing a prison cell together and we intend to make that happen even it takes me another 30 years, and I will continue to request access to public records and file suits against any agency that renders assistance to a pedophile and wife beater.

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

 



 


What John Pennington was trying to hide for so many years, his prior conviction for criminal harassment ( assault of an ex-fiancé in Oregon) as noted in the following public records as prior conviction”

In 2000, John Pennington was George Bush Jr’s campaign manager here in Washington State.  Soon after George Bush Jr. was elected ( or stole the election with his brother’s assistance depending what you believe), George Jr. appointed John E Pennington and Michael Browne to positions inside FEMA. Sadly for America, not one FEMA Director was qualified for such positions.

As a result of Michael Browne and John Pennington’s inability to read, write and think effectively caused thousands of minority deaths in Hurricane Katrina.

Hurricane Katrina was an eye opener for those of us who actually earned accredited degrees and whose parents taught us to think critically. George W Bush Jr.’s decision to appoint friends instead of educated and skilled people resulted in massive human loss of life In New Orleans.

Had this story ended in New Orleans, we wouldn’t be exposing John E.Pennington today. But it didn’t, why is simple, because Washington State Senator Jennifer Dunn decided to use her political clout to appoint an uneducated bum to FEMA Region 10 ( Pacific Northwest).

What is even crazier is that George W Bush made an executive appointment without ever running a single background check on John Pennington prior to appointing him.

All that changed when America started calling for Michael Brownie’s head for causing  so many deaths in New Orleans. Perhaps Michael Browne might have survived press scrutiny had he not put in his email that was heading to Nordstroms to purchase new clothes for the cameras, while at the same time thousands of African Americans were floating down the street or in lock down inside an unsafe convention center.

African Americans were drowning in the streets of New Orleans, because FEMA Directors lacked basic college skills to handle such a disaster. In the case of Michael Browne, an unaccredited undergraduate degree as well as unaccredited law school diploma. In the case of John Pennington, an online diploma mill degree from an online school the U.S. Dept of Education said sold online diplomas at a flat rate, California Coastal College.


Hurricane Katrina, good bye Brownie, Hello Penny

After Michael Browne and Bernard Kerik made a laughing stock out of the George W and America, George Jr was quoted as saying ‘ Penny will make a great director of FEMA.”This was November 2005. But this time, the feds actually ran an extensive background on John Pennington, and discovered what we learned through years of sifting through public records. John Pennington is a dangerous sociopath with real anger management issues; anger he often takes out on women and children.

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

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

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

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


In 2005, Michael Browne was blamed for the deaths of thousands, because he was appointed to a position that he wasn’t qualified for.  So when George Jr. had to make a new appointment to FEMA Director, he looked to a devil wrapping himself with pages of the Bible, while at the same time molesting children and violently assaulting a pregnant woman in her third trimester, John E. Pennington.

For those reporting the news in Washington D.C just after George Bush Jr’s FEMA Directors caused so much misery to so many residents and their survivors in New Orleans, Bush Jr. was quoted as saying ” Penny would make a great Director.”

Because the feds didn’t want George Jr. to go through yet another scathing news story like he did when he chose Kerik to head Homeland Security (who ended up being prime suspect in a murder case and had direct ties to organized crime) and Michael Browne and his fake degrees with extensive skills in horse breeding debacles, any appointment would go through extensive background checks prior to Congressional Hearings.

As a result of the feds extensive background check on John Pennington, he was forced to resign from FEMA or be exposed in a very public way. John Pennington lied about his termination from FEMA stating that he and Tamara Doherty were caught misusing the FEMA credit cards.

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

John Pennington was terminated from FEMA because the feds learned what we reported on over the last seven years; pedophilia deviant uneducated child abuser who has sick fetish for kids, John Pennington. A sociopath who reminds me of Ted Bundy.

Unfortunately for Oso Washington residents,  George W Bush Jr.’s  administration thought it was ok to set him loose on Snohomish County residents just so George Jr didn’t have to suffer public press embarassment again.


On March 24, 2014, John Pennington caused 43 residents in Oso Washington to suffocate to death in Washington State’s most preventable loss of life natural disaster. Instead of mitigating loss to human life, John Pennington worked on his fraudulent online diploma, operated his personal business on the County’s dime and while using county resources and staff, violently assaulted children and women, and criminally harassed me right from Snohomish County Offices operating an online blog ” The Sky Valley Chronicle.  “  An online blog owned by Aaron Reardon but operated by Gold Bar’s Mayor Crystal Hill ( nee Berg who plead guilty to bank fraud in 2005), John Pennington,  and Gold Bar’s former Mayor Joe Beavers.

I believe John Pennington should be charged with negligent homicide for the 43 people he killed in the Oso mudslides.


Since John E. Pennington killed 43 Oso residents in the mudslides, we have searched his travel records and beleive he is responsible for missing children in four different states, and have ample evidence to state John Pennington is the man responsbile for the rape of that five year old child from Colwitz County Washington.

Sadly, John Pennington remains on the loose up here in Snohomis County. So long as John Pennington remains on the loose, I will continue to investigate and report on his criminal sexual deviant conduct.

Protecting Our children from a sociopath like John Pennington is worth every sacrifice we’ve made as a result  of shinning much needed sunshine on cockroaches who harm molest and abuse our kids.

Our Children’s mental well being has no price tag.  I agree with Hillary Clinton “ it takes a village to raise children.”


John Pennington’s trial in the Oso mudslide debacle will be live streamed by the Gold Bar Reporters starting during the fall of 2016.

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

 

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

 

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

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


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


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

John Pennington, visits Livonia Michigan, in search of dirt on the Gold Bar Reporter, but instead he finds a convicted spousal abuser and drug addict

Somethings are better left in the past, such is the City of Livonia Michigan.

In 2001, I moved to Lansing Michigan to attend graduate studies. I can’t say I hated Michigan but it wasn’t home. The summers were short and humid and the winters were rough and bone chillin cold.

Born and raised in New England, I was no stranger to bone chillin cold winters, and the summers on the east coast were hot and humid, so Michigan wasnt much different, with one exception, Noel.

During my first year of college, I put in for a transfer to Quinpiacc Law School hoping to be closer to home. I was accepted,  but then I met a fantastic like minded free thinker who was as liberal as I if not more so.

When I first met Noel, I was disappointed to learn that he had custody of his daughter, Rachel. She was 12, a self centered me child. Something she learned from her mother because her dad is a complete opposite.

Further,  I had raised my one and only daughter, and really wasn’t interested in raising another.  Kids are quirky, especially teenagers. Teenagers tend to play the blame game, but Rachel was different as it was clear from her life surroundings that she was being abused by her mother, Laura.

Teenagers are quirky enough without having to deal with a mentally ill parent like Laura who spent little time trying to raise a happy healthy child, but instead sucked on a bottle of Vicodin and suffered from Muchhausan bi proxy.  Laura’s main goal was getting even with Noel for having the courage to say ” I will not live my life with a drug addict and allow my daughter to be raised by an abusive drug addict either ”  as he was the first to file for divorce but only after countless failed attempts by Laura at detox.

Most women in our society are the favored parent by our courts, a preconditioning that woman are the more nuturing ones.  I find this assumption to be absurbed, and an insult to my father.  I loved both my parents, and had more in common with my father as he taught me that the power really is in the pen.

Unfortunately for Rachel, Her mother was abusive, both verbally and physically. For me, my daughter’s happiness was and still is evidence of job well done. For Laura, Rachel was and still is piece of property to manipulate to fill Laura’s own unhappy void in life.

In 1998, Laura was arrested and convicted of stabbing Noel, as a result she lost custody of Rachel.  A conviction that as an Oakland County nurse she was obligated to tell her employer but somehow forgot that “morals clause” in her county contract.  A fact I could have disclosed, which would have resulted in her immediate termination, but decided not to because of Rachel.  A decision I regret knowing Laura is still addicted to prescription pills, holding a nursing license. Scary stuff.

When I first met Noel I remember thinking well how bad can this woman be, after all she’s able to maintain a nursing job. What I didn’t know, but later learned, is that Laura was fired from a hospital in Cincinatti for stealing narcotics, thus triggering her move to Livonia Michigan.  But only after Noel graduated with an MS in Engineering and obtained lucrative employment designing aircrafts.

After moving to Livonia, Laura’s drug addiction became too much for Noel, he decided to divorce when his daughter was just seven.  According to several sources, Rachel went from a happy child to a severally depressed withdrawn child. Sadly, she never recovered and lives today ( age 27), just as her mother does, isolated and clingy, looking for others approval.

But who can blame her; children who are abused often live their life trying to fix the abuser.

I remember often questioning Rachel about bruises on her arms after she’d return home from Oakland County court ordered biweekly visits with her mom. I’d questioned Rachel about who bruised her arms, and she’d always make up excuses like my arm got caught in the door.

Frankly speaking, I hate child abusers. Laura was no exception.  I called Rachel’s therapist who later told her dad, children often blame themselves for their parent’s abuse and inability to love. Sadly for Rachel, Laura wasn’t capable of nurturing a trash bag, only her Vicodin bottle. A Vicodin bottle she often spent weekend days hospital shopping to find.

In 2004, after graduate schoool I decided to move to New Hampshire. After all, it’s the live free or die state.  A place that as a young adult I found peace and solitude; Swimming in Lake Winniepasaukee’s pristine clear waters is like taking a cold bath while gazing up at the first highest mountain peak I ever climbed, Mt Washington. It’s peace on earth and far away from the ” Looney World of Laura F.”

Laura stalked me at home, college, and on vacations, bi proxy, through Rachel. I wasnt alone as she did this to Noel too. I spent five years in Michigan and I can’t remember a single vacation without Laura calling Rachel claiming to be dying, extremely sick, etc just so she could ruin Rachel’s vacations to soak in her own drug induced sorrow.

In 2004, after spending the whole summer traveling the western US, and watching the Michigan economy collapse, Noel and I decided it was time to move.  I wanted to move to New Hamshire, while Noel wanted to move to Bozeman Monatana.  But after spending much time backpacking Washington’s national parks, and after climbing to the top of Mount Rainer, Noel turned to me and said ” let’s move here. ” He threw his arms up looked out over Mount Rainer and said ” for me this is paradise.”  I said ok.

Looking backwards from today, I know Washington is where my activism is needed the most. But I shall retire on the most beautiful lake in the U.S. , Sebago.

In December 2009, a Snohomish County  political appointee name John E Pennington wrote me an unsolicited letter that seemed more like it was written by a 10-year-old child than that of a director. I remember thinking to myself? Why would this man, an employee of the county, write an unsolicited letter to a citizen that absolutely made no sense whatsoever.

Since 2008, I have been investigating political appointee John E Pennington. My readers know that I have spent countless resources time and energy trying to warn the public of just how dangerous John E Pennington is to the safety and health of our children. Unfortunately, my warnings fell on deaf ears and he killed 43 people in the Oso mudslides.

Sadly for Washingtonians, Snohomish county government officials, including but not limited to Mark Roe  , Sean Reay, Miqual Tempski, and John Lovick covered up that John E Pennington was labeled by King County Dr. Hendricks as being mentally defective ” a sociopath with no empathy for human life” a fact that he plead to to avoid jail time after he violently assaulted a 3rd trimester pregnant woman just weeks before the deliverly of her daughter.

And if the strange couldn’t have gotten stranger, in November 2016 I deposed Joe Beavers Gold Bar’s mayor who has bankrupted the city of Gold Bar hiding his computer crimes, admitted that he had reached out to a government official in Oakland County Michigan seeking information on Noel. Information Beavers obtained from Laura.

We have ample reason to believe from family members that Laura F continues to live a drug induced life, and still searching for vindication of the harm that she caused so many especially the abuse she perpetrated upon her daughter.

In Joe Beavers deposition, he also admitted that he was anonymously cyberstalking  the Gold Bar Reporter while he was a public official for Gold Bar on a blogspot operated by John Pennington and Crystal Hill Pennington.

Joe Beavers , John Pennington and Crystal Hill Pennington are being sued for racketeering with depositions expected to begin later this year.   John Pennington was recently caught on camera forging court records in Pierce County successfully sued as a result and found to be a abusing the process.

So with no surprise, a friend from Michigan had called me telling me that Laura F has found some new friends, a sociopath, John Pennington and Joe Beavers. Pennington on camera today meeting up with Laura trying to dig up trash on the Gold Bar Reporter in Livonia Michigan.

I have some advice for John Pennington, next time you’d like to dig up trash on the Gold Bar Reporter you might not use a drug addict, who was convicted of stabbing her ex husband and who lost custody of daughter as a result of her criminal conduct.

I hope you enjoyed the weather Johnny, because you met with the second largest pile of trash I ever had the displeasure of meeting besides You. Perhaps next time you’ll do things a little bit different and visit your co-conspirator during the summer as the summers are much more pleasant in Michigan than the winters.

Looks like I have a new defendant to add to my racketeering suit and since predicate acts took place in Michigan, my thought is I should file my next suit in Michigan.

Washington State Auditor cites City of Gold Bar; $227,000 missing

If someone said to me in 2008 that I would resign from the Washington State Bar citing criminal harassment and become a news reporter in Snohomish County, I would have laughed.  But I’m not laughing anymore.
 
As a taxpayer of Gold Bar, located in Snohomish County Washington, I give no pleasure in writing this post with a ” I told you so” message.
 
Over the past six years, I uncovered one of the largest racketeering scandals in Washington State history by simply requesting access to ” all records relating to Gold Bar’s water boy, Karl Marjerle, who tampered with the City’s water system.”
 
From a simple request for access to our public records under RCW 42.56, we are on our way to exposing one of the largest corruption scandals in Washington State’s history.   This involves covering up crimes, threats to murder me, threats to intimidate those who associate with me, damage to my reputation, damage to my property, and threats to extort me all disseminated inside public emails that involve Snohomish County public officials including John E. Pennington, Snohomish County Prosecutors Sean Reay and Margaret King, and several Gold Bar council members, Chris Wright, Florence Davi Martin, and former Gold Bar Mayors Joe Beavers and Crystal Hill Pennington.
 
On January 20, 2015, Washington State’s Auditor (SAO) appeared at the Gold Bar city council meeting noting that there is $227,000.00 missing from four different funds between 2012 -2013.  Two of those funds are Enterprise Funds that cannot be used for anything outside its intended purpose.
 
From 2012 to 2013, Gold Bar’s Mayor, according to attorney Michael Kenyon, was the sole decider or as we correctly dub Joe Beavers ” Tricky Dick” Beavers.
 
According to the SAO, the City of Gold Bar updated its municipal code to align with its current practices; however, the city is not following the procedures outlined in the new code.
 
The new code the SAO is referring to was the City of Gold Bar’s handpicked Finance Committee, which is suppose to review all payments prior to Council approval.  Here the Auditor claims that one Gold Bar member who sat on the Finance Committee, Bob Strom, failed to ensure expenses were supported and were not in compliance with the City code and policies.
 
The SAO also cited that the City failed to use mandated Budget Accounting and Reporting System reporting.  A system that the City used in 2010 and 2011 stopped using since 2012.
 
One local resident says ”  Beavers knew he couldn’t hide his Ponzi scheme using BaRs, so he stopped to cover up his misconduct.”
 
The SAO further stated that the City spent $1,402,541.00 on items such as equipment, supplies, petty cash, reimbursements, and monthly credit cards bills for travel and miscellaneous expenses. Noting that the same problems were brought to the City’s attention during its 2012 Audit, and failed to address any of the problems.   We asked the SAO in 2012 ” where’s the purchase orders?”  Still no answers.
 
 
This is no laughing matter, and in fact in the next month I will be filing a criminal complaint against the City of Gold Bar’s former Mayor Joe Beavers and the Gold Bar city council member who sat on Gold Bar’s Finance Committee using Washington Court Rules to do so.
 
 
 
After I Recall Mark Roe, I’m going to Recall Bob Strom.  The day I, a taxpayer in Gold Bar and Snohomish County, sit back while public officials sworn in to uphold the laws of Washington break them, thus committing and further RICO efforts against its citizens, is the day I become a vegetable.

As Thomas Jefferson said ” Dissent is the highest form of Patriotism.”

Snohomish County Prosecutors, Snohomish County Director of Emergency Management, Sky Valley Chronicle, and Gold Bar Mayors sued under RICO

On February 13, 2013, the Snohomish County Daily Herald exposed Snonomish County

Executive criminals Aaron Reardon, Senator Steve Hobbs’s brother-in-law Jon Rudicil,
and Kevin Hulten for criminal harassment.
 
Once caught, the Snohomish County Council was forced to assign the investigation over to King County, who then assigned Aaron Reardon, Kevin Hulten, Jon Rudicil and Christopher Schwartzen’s county computers to the King County Major Crimes Unit for forensic inspection.
 
In November 2013, the Gold Bar Reporter requested a complete copy of Kevin Hulten’s hard drives on any computer retained by King County Major Crimes Unit as it relates to the Aaron Reardon investigation, and what we got back confirmed our suspicion that Kevin Hulten’s main function at the County was to criminally anyone who exposed Aaron Reardon as the useless criminal he was, which includes a criminal racketeering he ( Hulten) and Steve Hobbs’s brother-in-law Jon Rudicil created  “Edmond Thomas LLC.”
 
From emails and invoices, Kevin Hulten and Jon Rudicil were funneling money on behalf of the Democratic group, DNA ( a group serving native American interests). Here’s how it worked: Edmond Thomas LLC, operated by Kevin Hulten and Jon Rudicil would use county resources to assist a Tacoma attorney named Jack Connolly to criminally harass his opponent Senator Jeanne Darnielle.
 
Emails between TRO Strategies, attorney Jack Connelly, Jon Rudicil, and Kevin Shorty Hulten confirmed that Jon Rudicil and Kevin Hulten were charging the Democratic group titled DNA ( serving native American interests) to criminally harass Sen. Jeanne Darnielle.
 
Kevin Hulten and Jon Rudicil made less than $65,000.00 per year, but they lived as though they were making $250,000.00 per year. Rudicil and Hulten both owned homes in Lake Stevens with mortgages suggestive to be well over $1700.00 per month 60 % of the their monthly gross income.
 
But once we reviewed the King County Major Crimes files, we started seeing invoices issued on Snohomish County taxpayers computers and resources charging the Democratic group for professional criminal harassment services provided to attorney Jack Connelly to criminally harass Senator Jeanne Darnielle.
 
What was more interesting is that although there is evidence that Hulten and Rudicil were paid thousands of dollars by the Democratic party lobbying group, there is no evidence that Hulten nor Rudicil ever paid a single cent of Washington State business tax or federal income tax on their extra revenue.
 
But the story didn’t end here. We later learned that besides his criminal racketeering activity, Hulten enjoyed clipping Ipone “selfy” pictures of his penis. In one picture, he even measured the size of his penis with a ruler, hence why Gold Bar Reporter Forbes dubbed Hulten, correctly, as Kevin ” SHORTY” Hulten.
As for Jon Rudicil’s career move, well he went to work for Senator Hatfield. A couple of years ago, Senator Hatfield’s son was charged with raping an 11 year old boy. A rape the stellar Senator Hatfield knew about but failed to report.
 
Can our readers imagine why Senator Hatfield would cover up the fact that his 15 year old son sodomized an 11 year boy, with his legs and back tied behind him, instead of trying to get his pedophile son mental health assistance?
 
Let’s keep in mind the facts above suggest that Hatfield’s son’s sodomizing, legs tied behind the child’s back, mouth gagged, strongly suggests that Senator Hatfield’s son is simply repeating learned behavior.
 
Bravo Mr. Rudicil, Senator Hatfield was a great choice of future employers. Certainly someone no of us would even speak with after failing to report the rape of a child let alone work for. This leaves us to believe that there’s something not right inside Senator Hatfield’s home. An issue we’re researching thanks to Jon Rudicil’s flocking to Senator Hatfield nest.
 
Then in July 2014, Kevin Hulten plead guilty to criminal evidence tampering, and according to an on looker  ” Kevin Hulten laughed at his plea hearing as though the fix was already in.”
 
Soon after Shorty’s criminal plea deal, Mr. Hulten sent Gold Bar Reporter Block an extortionist email furthering the RICO activities of the Enterprise.
 
Kevin Hulten then tried to extort Block with a letter to the Washington State Bar. Block said sorry shorty I resigned effective May 1, 2014, so I’m not a member anymore so you’re shit out of luck. Nonetheless, we saved Kevin Hulten’s threats as they are evidence of his RICO activity, an issue he is being sued for in U.S. Federal District Court.
 
After Gold Bar Reporter Block filed suit against Hulten, she contacted him asking if he had counsel, he responded that the Prosecutor’s Office confirmed that the taxpayers of Snohonish County would flipping his legal bill.

 
This prompted us to request record under our favorite RCW, 42.56 ( Pubic Records Act) seeking all legal contracts that relate to convicted criminal harasser Kevin ” Shorty” Hulten. On Friday, Snohomish County Prosecutor Stacey Malstead ( who actaully appears to be some what of a professional public servant unlike her predecessor Lynne Jardine).
 
According to our legal counsel, RCW 4.96.010 prohibits use of taxpayer funds for conduct outside
of the employee’s official duties.
 
Tortious conduct of local governmental entities — Liability for damages.
 
(1) All local governmental entities, whether acting in a governmental or proprietary capacity, shall be liable for damages arising out of their tortious conduct, or the tortious conduct of their past or present officers, employees, or volunteers while performing or in good faith purporting to perform their official duties, to the same extent as if they were a private person or corporation. Filing a claim for damages within the time allowed by law shall be a condition precedent to the commencement of any action claiming damages. The laws specifying the content for such claims shall be liberally construed so that substantial compliance therewith will be deemed satisfactory.
 
YES, our readers are reading this correct, Snohomish County Prosecutors Mark Roe and RICO member Sean Reay, are misappropriating taxpayers monies, signed an illegal agreement to provide $50,000.00 of taxpayers to assist a convicted criminal harasser and racketeering enterprise member named Kevin Hulten.
 
On July 5, 2014, Kevin Hulten plead guilty to criminal evidence tampering. But Hulten did not act alone.
 
Snohomish County’s uneducated bum who killed 44 residents in the Oso Washington mudslides, John E. Pennington, is linked to Kevin Hulten and pay offs to Washington State Bar hearing officer named attorney Lin O’Dell and her convicted killer boyfriend Mark Plivilech.
 
John E. Pennington’s property purchases have increased by 400 % since Aaron Reardon appointed him as Snohomish County’s Director of Emergency Management.
 
Former Deputy Director Gary Haackenson turned over records linking Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe Beavers to this criminal Enterprise as well.
 
Native American interests tie the law firm of Kenyon Dissend directly into one of the largest RICO scandals in United States history, so stay tuned.
 
As for Aaron Reardon ole boy, we can only hope that the public records turned over between Christopher Schwartzen and Aaron Reardon documenting illegal gifting of public lands and his Indio California home purchase ( with no surprise on tribal property) will help bring him to justice for his crimes.
 
As for Snohomish County Prosecutor Seth Fine, we just finally received the final missing piece of the puzzle dating back to the Karl Marjele tampering of the Gold Bar water system and the stealing of a Washington State Bar member’s application file.  As such, the entire judicial system in Washington will be reformed.
 
Stay tuned,  the pieces of this RICO scheme are almost complete after a woman who worked for Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office leaked the missing piece of the puzzle involving the Washington State Bar Office of Disciplinary Officer and Prosecutor Seth Fine.  Mr. Fine, with no surprise,  Fine heads Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Criminal Division. Back in 2008, Karl Marjerle was not charged with sabotaging the City of Gold Bar’s water system.  Deciders on whether or not charge Marjerle were our goods friends inside Snohomish County’s Criminal Division.
 
Get your boots, cause this shit is deep!
 
Those pesky public records; where there is money, there is corruption.  
 

‘ John E. Pennington, Snohomish County’s former Director of Emergency Management, Linked to Largest Corruption Scandal in Washington State’s History”

Most of you know me as the investigator blogger/reporter in Snohomish County Washington who exposed Snohomish County Executive Aaron Reardon for the criminal harasser scum bag that he is. Scott North, who claims to be a friend to open government recently stated that I was a prolific public requester; Scott North conveniently left out these facts, probably because he doesn’t like be “scooped” especially by someone who only works at reporting part-time.

But that’s ok because Scott North and I are supporters of Open Government, so I’ll forgive him for leaving off the fact that I am a journalist and an author.

What many of our readers may not know is that the Snohomish County Daily Herald’s February 13, 2013, article ” Reardon’s staff linked to harassment” was just the tip of the iceberg on Aaron Reardon’s little RICO gang of thieves.

The events that lead up to Reardon’s staff being exposed were first unearthed by the Gold Bar Reporters in late summer 2012. Because two dumb as a fuckin posts Snohomish County executive employees Kevin  ” Thomas” Hulten and Jon Rudicil, both directly linked to one of Washington State’s biggest piece of shit, Senator Steve Hobbs, were simply sloppy and uneducated on how to set up a blog, like Reardon and his gang did on the Sky Valley Chronicle.

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

After seeing emails and Outlook calendars from public records we requested on disgraced Executive Reardon, we learned that Senator Tracey Eide, Senator Steve Hobbs, convicted criminal harasser Kevin ” Thomas” Hulten and Aaron Reardon  were having “special meetings” in Aaron Reardon’s Office in early January 2013. This was one month prior to the Daily Herald’s story ” Reardon’s Staff Linked to Harassment.”

Once Reardon’s executive officers got caught with their pants down, and emails connected Aaron Reardon’s staff to criminal harassment, I filed a 10 M tort claim upon Snohomish County, Washington, noting that the Daily Herald only covered part of the story.  The other half of the story involves John E. Pennington’s involvement in tossing Snohomish County Whistleblower Tamara Dutton under the bus to save a much bigger political fish named Deanna Dawson.

From public records we are confident to report that not only was Tamara Dutton engaged in an extramarital affair with Reardon, but Deanna Dawson, President of Southern Washington Association of Cities, was also engaged in an extramarital affair with Reardon.  Unlike Tamara Dutton, Deanna Dawson lied in her statement to the Washington State Patrol during the Reardon investigation.  This issue is water under the bridge but it sure does help understand how we got to where we are today.

In a nutshell, Reardon’s ” little RICO gang” threw Tamara Dutton under the bus to save Deanna Dawson from political ruins for sleeping with a married executive. For this, we are going to keep our eyes open on issues that relate to Dawson because any female that would toss another female under the bus to save their ass is a piece of shit that deserves public scrutiny.

Then in late February 2013, the Snohomish County council stripped control of our public records from Aaron Reardon’s control. Scum bag Reardon resigned, but not before ordering Snohomish County Prosecutor Margaret King and Sean Reay to write and file WA State Bar complaints against Gold Bar reporter Anne Block (me).

Whether Mark Roe knew whether or not that Sean Reay and Margaret King had entered Reardon and Pennington’s conspiracy to harm me is still under investigation, hence why Prosecutor Mark Roe was not listed as a defendant in my RICO suit.

To Mr. Roe’s credit, it appears that he did not know until I filed a First Amendment Brief with the WA State Bar basically telling the Bar to stay out of my First Amendment activity outlining a bit of what we write here.

In July 2013, Crystal Hill Pennington sent me a private “tweet” stating ” can’t wait to go to your disbarment hearing. ” The tweet didn’t say ” I hope you get disbarred” it said I cant wait to go to your disbarment hearing” as though the fix was already in. Crystal Hill Pennington’s Tweet prompted me to start investigating WSBA lead counsel Linda Eide’s connection to all of this.

It didn’t take a genesis to connect the dots between WSBA lead counsel Linda Eide and Senator Steve Hobbs’s and John Pennington’s friend Senator Tracey Eide. Eides are related.

Why Reardon’s gang of thugs wanted to get me disbarred was simple, I, not the Herald reporters, basically exposed Reardon for the criminal he is, and I filed a 10 M tort claim upon the County for his little RICO gang’s constant harassment on a Snohomish County controlled blog spot titled ” Sky Valley Chronicle”; and the City of Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe Beavers has been hiding Reardon and the Penningtons’ emails crimes for over five years costing the taxpayers of Gold Bar over 1 Million dollars with no end in sight.

As I have stated time and time again, there shall be no end until the City of Gold Bar complies with the Public Records Act. Further, the dumb asses thought that somehow by getting me disbarred this would reduce their liability.

What we uncovered over the last year will only greatly increase their liability, and since Kevin Hulten plead guilty to criminal harassment, he and the county at min. will be deposed. Once deposed, the whole shit and caboodle comes out . What John and Crystal Pennington and Gold Bar’s demented old Mayor Joe Beavers did on the Sky Valley Chronicle only enhances damages. An issue we will save for federal court, and after the assholes got caught criminally harassing me, they continued under the leadership of Executive John Lovick and without detection of Prosecutor Mark Roe.

I say blindly, somewhat, without the detection of Prosecutor Mark Roe, because John and Crystal Pennington recently set up a Twitter account “ NSCrier” posting only pictures of Tamara Dutton in a jail jumpsuit, John Lovick, and Mark Roe ( posting information about Mark Roe’s DUI arrest in King County earlier this year. An issue that we’re not interested in unless Mr. Roe harmed another human life, which he DID NOT). In addition, we reviewed Mark Roe’s email communication during a two year period, and besides seeing very unprofessional emails between Mark Roe and John Koster about Judge Wiseman, I didn’t see much to be too concerned about. But nonetheless, I decided to post Mark Roe’s emails hoping that Mark Roe would learn a lesson that as a politician his actions are subject to public scrutiny.

In October 2014, I filed a First Amendment injunction against the WA Bar citing massive corruption. In my response to the WSBA’s political payoff ( Yes we are claiming that Pennington and Reardon paid off WA Bar Hearing Officer Lin O’Dell using O’Dell’s convicted murderer boyfriend Mark Plivelich to make the payment exchanges with the Penningtons in Duvall and will be posting our findings within the next week or sooner) to disbar myself, and on behalf of Aaron Reardon and John and Crystal Pennington, I submitted a hell of a lot of evidence that John E. Pennington ran illegal background checks, is in fact a pedophile, etc. ( see Gold Bar Reporters archives for more information).

I also submitted at least one hundreds posts John and Crystal Pennington and Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe Beavers posted on the Sky Valley Chronicle. A source inside Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office informed us that Mark Roe called Pennington and said “ If you don’t stop harassing Block on the Sky Valley Chronicle, I’ll charge You with cyber-stalking” immediately John and Crystal Pennington and Gold bar’s Mayor joe Beavers stopped.

For this reason, I do not believe that Mark Roe knew that PENNINGTON, King, and Reay were posting on the Sky Valley Chronicle. I only fault Mark Roe for not monitoring his employees, and have since decided not to Recall him. I also thank him.

An additional thank you to Gold Bar’s current Mayor Linda Loen, who confirmed the Penningtons and Beavers involvement in cyber-staking me on the County controlled Sky Valley Chronicle.

Because this story is huge, and involves a financial pay off using federal resources, this blog is just the first in a series of posts to follow on this story. So stay tuned on Monday morning following Thanksgiving; what we uncovered and will report on will send a shock wave through the 40,000 WA State Bar members and John Lovick’s career will end as a result of John Pennington, just as Aaron Reardon’s did. Reform is coming,

A special Happy Thanksgiving thank you to my childhood hero Frank Serpico.

Snohomish County public officers running online website

This week was a very good week for us open government supporters out here in Gold Bar.  Good news, someone inside the City of Gold Bar released records illegally withheld for over five years to the Gold Bar Reporters. The insider released records confirming beyond any reasonable doubt that several Snohomish County public officers started and maintained the Sky Valley Chronicle right from Snohomish County’s Department Emergency Management and Gold Bar City Hall.

Emails illegally withheld for over five years were that of Gold Bar’s city clerk Denise Beaston.  Whether Denise is the one who leaked the illegally withheld records to the Gold Bar Reporters is unknown.  We suspect she is.

While the former Snohomish County political appointee John Pennington criminally harassed open government supporters on the county’s lucrative welfare program, 44 people, mainly children, suffocated to death in Washington State’s second largest natural disaster.

Four lawsuits have been filed against John Pennington a man who caused thousands of deaths in Hurricane Katrina and 44 people to suffocate to death in Washington State’s second largest natural disaster Oso mudslides. The civil suits detail his criminal and negligent conduct, and one RICO complaint is coming in early 2015.

Additional records also document that John Pennington ran his for profit company right from Snohomish County’s DEM Office, a company that he has yet to pay a single cent of state tax on.

Here’s how Aaron Reardon and his racketeering gang operated the Sky Valley Chronicle and his many criminally harassing Twitter accounts( NSCrier, BlockOfLies, and MockAnneBlock).

In March 2008, Aaron Reardon’s poll numbers inside the Sky Valley were plummeting. As a result, Reardon hired a real religious whack job named Christopher Schwartzen.  At the time, Schwartzen was a Seattle Times reporter and a very good friend to another religious whack job named Ronald Fejfar.

Within six months of Reardon hiring Schwartzen, on July 7, 2008, Fejfar, Pennington, Schwartzen and Reardon start a for profit online blog titled the ” Sky Valley Chronicle.”

Since starting the Sky Valley Chronicle, Snohomish County Executive employees John Pennington, Chris Schwartzen, Kevin Hulten, Aaron Reardon, Jon Rudicil, Brian Parry, and Gold Bar’s Mayors Joe Beavers and Crystal Hill operate the Sky Valley Chronicle right from  Snohomish County public offices and from City Hall in Gold Bar.  How we know this: someone intentionally released records that document each public official was given a log in code by Sultan resident Ronald Fejfar, and each was allowed to post anything, regardless of the truth.

However, over the last couple of weeks someone put an end to the Sky Valley Chronicle’s criminal conduct. As of today, all three Twitter accounts were unexpectedly suspended, and the Sky Valley Chronicle has ceased its criminal cyber-stalking of Gold Bar Reporters.

Although last week, Gold Bar’s former Mayor Crystal Hill Pennington was photographed stalking the Gold Bar Reporters at their homes.  Mz. Hill lives in Duvall, while lothario/pedophile John Pennington remains on the east coast with his newest mistress, reducing Mz. Hill to a babysitter.

A source inside Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office told the Gold Bar Reporters two weeks ago that she over heard Mark Roe telling John Pennington that if he ” does not stop harassing Block on the Sky Valley Chronicle, he ( Roe) would press criminal cyber-stalking charges against the Penningtons”.   Bravo to Mark Roe for opening his eyes, but proof of John Pennington’s past criminal harassment conviction record can be found inside his domestic assault records from the City of Redmond.

Our investigation of John Pennington’s criminal activity continues.
