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.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

King County Judge, Snohomish County’s inactions in Oso Mudslides may be negligent, case set for trial

UPDATE: A source from Snohomish County confirmed that John E. Pennington is the true owner of the Sky Valley Chronicle. An online news paper being sued for criminal cyber-stalking, defamation, racketeering, bribery, fraud, 1983 violations, in Block v WSBA, at el.

On Friday October 29, 2016, another reporter contacted the Gold Bar Reporter with “forged,  altered documents, perjury and filing false instruments with the Court”.  John E. Pennington placed into a Pierce County case attempting to SLAPP down our message about his pedophilia and abuse against women. Criminal complaints are being pursued against John Pennington and he will be formally charged in November.

 

Snohomish County’s relationship with the Stillaguamish Tribes is worsening as Prosecutor Mark Roe and Washington State attorney General’s office try to shift financial responsibility away from convicted criminal harasser, former political appointee John E. Pennington.

Pedophile

In 2014 when 43 residents in the Oso mudslide disaster suffocated to death, John Pennington was in charge.

Snohomish County Executive Dave Somers terminated John E. Pennington in January 2016 after the voters overwhelmingly sent John Lovick packing. But not soon enough; 43 people in Washington State’s most preventable loss of life natural disaster suffocated to death because of John Lovick and John Pennington’s gross failures of  catastrophic magnitude.


Oso Mudslide Trial set for September 2016

 

The Gold Bar Reporters will be in the courtroom with video cameras in hand for the upcoming Oso mudslide trial and testimony of John E. Pennington, former Director of Emergency Management.  A political appointee of disgraced former Executive Aaron Reardon.  Reardon resigned soon after the Gold Bar Reporter’s articles exposed Reardon for misappropriation of public funds to fund two affairs with county employees.

Public records reveal that instead of doing his job, John Pennington criminally harassed citizens on the County’s dime operating a blog titled ‘ The Sky Valley Chronicle.”

Additional public records document that Pennington was convicted in Lake Oswego Oregon for violently beating his ex fiancé in 1991.  As a result, John Pennington fled Oregon.

There are thirty nine victims, and their estates suing the state, Snohomish County and logging company Grandy Lake Forest Associates for wrongful death. Instead of resolution, Washington State Attorney General’s Office and Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe try to shift blame to the Stillaguamish Tribe  last month claiming that an agreement shifts liability to the tribes.

“The Tribe’s official records demonstrate that the Tribe’s Board of Directors passed no resolution delegating authority to anyone to sign the Agreement on the Tribe’s behalf,” the complaint says. “There is no evidence of the Board ever considering the Agreement at all. Without a Board resolution approving the Agreement or authorizing anyone to sign it on the Tribe’s behalf … the Tribe could not have waived its inherent sovereign immunity for claims arising out of the Agreement,” a spokesman for the Tribes said.

According to an insider, Pierce College in Tacoma Washington hired John Pennington to  cover up the fact that Pennington remained unemployed, a ploy to fool the jury.  ‘Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe and Attorney General’s Office sat around for hours talking about how Pennington’s being unemployed would look to the average juror. Bob made a few phone calls and managed to get Pennington a temporary political appointment,” the insider told the Gold Bar Reporter yesterday.

John E. Pennington is being sued for racketeering in US Federal Court in Seattle, with a new one in Connecticut State Court. Pennington’s depositions are expected to begin early in 2017.

We wish the Stillaguamish Tribes well, and hope they are successful on stopping abusive bullying by Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe and his criminal racketeering organization up here in Snohomish County, also know as Snohomish County Prosecutors.

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 John Pennington meets his next victim.

Mr. Pennington plead guilty to criminal assault 1 and harassment  and his ex-finance sued him to recover damages ( Washington County Case # D911027SC) after he hospitalized her Oregon. A felony record, Senator Dunn helped hide from the public eye.

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.

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.

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.”

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 of a real college for raping a student.

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.


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 taxpayers illegally funding former executive officers personal legal defense with taxpayer monies?

Snohomish County public records confirmed that Snohomish County taxpayers are providing a personal legal defense to former Snohomish County Executive criminals Jon Rudicil and Aaron Reardon’s personal legal defense in a racketeering complaint filed in U.S. Federal District Court.

On February 13, 2013, two great reporters from Snohomish County’s Daily Herald exposed Snohomish County Executive Officers Aaron Reardon, Jon Rudicil and Kevin Thomas ” I enjoy taking iphone pictures of my penis with taxpayer cell phones” Hulten in one of Washington State’s largest for profit Enterprise titled the Sky Valley Chronicle.

We here at the Gold Bar Reporters can wait to see if  Aaron Reardon and Jon Rudicil paid IRS tax on monies received as result of their taxpayer funded legal defense to hide their criminal activity as exposed by the Snohomish County Daily Herald and King County’s Major Crimes Unit.

Once we get copies of  Ragonesi’s contract with the County to protect RICO Enterprise members Rudicil and Reardon, we will post it.

” John was always a good liar” John Pennington’s mother

From Perjurer John Pennington’s affidavit to the Washington State Bar:

“Ms. Block has on multiple occasions publicized that I personally “caused the deaths of thousands of minorities” in New Orleans during the Hurricane Katrina disaster of 2005. I was never deployed in any capacity to Hurricane Katrina and have only been to New Orleans and the state of Louisiana one time in my life, 19 as a pre-teen with my family on vacation.”

Compare with Snohomish County press release issued at time John Pennington was hired:

http://www.co.snohomish.wa.us/documents/Departments/Executive/News/NRPenningtonConfirmed.pdf

RCW 9A.76.175, Making a false or misleading statement to a public servant.
A person who knowingly makes a false or misleading material statement to a public servant is guilty of a gross misdemeanor. “Material statement”  means a written or oral statement reasonably likely to be relied upon by a public servant in the discharge of his or her official powers or duties.

In May 2013, the Gold Bar Reporters were the first to report what we discovered about Snohomish County’s Aaron Reardon political appointee John Pennington.  We correctly posted ” Snohomish County’s DEM John Pennington kicked out of a church after allegations of abuse made against him.”  After receiving credible information and researching ” Where did John Pennington come from””, we posted our findings that Snohomish County judicial courts and Executive officers are covering up for a child abuser named John E. Pennington.

John E. Pennington is also the uneducated scum that caused 41 deaths in the Oso mudslide debacle up here in Snohomish County, Washington, and was recently removed by Executive John Lovick in April 2014.  Just think of how many lives John Lovick could have saved in Oso had he simply investigated the many criminal complaints filed against Pennington from 2010 to 2013 ( the years he was Sheriff for Snohomish County).

But instead, while Sheriff for Snohomish County, John Lovick signed John E. Pennington’s “concealed” weapons permit.  In 2010 when Lovick signed John Pennington’s concealed weapons permit, Pennington had a prior conviction for criminal harassment and had pending domestic violence
charges against him for beating up his pregnant wife in Duvall ( Redmond District Court).

In the middle of 2013, and only after our investigation yielded sufficient evidence that John E. Pennington was in fact a pedophile hiding behind taxpayer money and resources up here in Snohomish County, we contacted John E. Pennington for comment. John E. Pennington refused comment and we posted our story that yielded a much bigger problem for Snohomish County to answer ” When did Snohomish County know that John Pennington was also named as prime suspect in a child ( 5 year old) rape case in Colwitz County?”

John Pennington, Judge Eric Lucas ( who illegally sealed John Pennington’s mental health evaluation in violation of WA State’s Public Records Act), Prosecutor Mark Roe, Prosecutor Sean Reay ( who Pennington labeled as one of Reardon’s bitches), Executive John Lovick, Executive Assistant Rebecca Hubbard, Deputy Director of Public Safety and Oso Response Gary Haackenson and Executive Deputy Director Mark Ericks were all contacted for comment. All refused comment.

However, council member Dave Somers did write the Reporters a letter asking the Reporters to come forward with the information about who Pennington was accused of abusing.  We explained to Dave Somers that Pennington’s sexual abuse victims names cannot be published as it is a crime to publish the names of any victims of sexual of abuse here in Washington State, and Media Shield Laws protects our source.

Council member Dave Somers did confirm that Snohomish County did NOT run a criminal background check on John Pennington and he did not know why not.  Let’s hope that Oso mudslide attorneys force the County to finally investigate John Pennington’s criminal history.
John E. Pennington was contacted for comment, but refused. Silence is golden in our eyes, or lets put it this way, if someone accused anyone of us of abusing a child, we would immediately request a retraction and file suit for defamation.  Instead of responding to the Gold Bar Reporters request for comment and answering questions about the child abuse allegations, John Pennington used Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay and Margaret King to write and file Washington State Bar complaints against Gold Bar Reporter Anne Block simply because Ms. Block’s held a license here in Washington.
John Pennington has never denied any allegations as it relates to our exposing him for the pedophile and wife abuser that he is.  We stand by our investigation into John Pennington’s criminal history as reported.
Margaret King is also a former city attorney for Gold Bar who assisted John Pennington and his mistress hide email records between Hill and Pennington making ‘racist comments about President Obama” and emails between Pennington and Hill passing ” mug shots” in violation of federal and state privacy laws.

To protect Margaret King from having to disclose her involvement in the Gold Bar conspiracy to hide John Pennington’s racist comments about President Obama and illegally passing criminal history records that he and our good friends in blue up here in Snohomish County illegally accessed and then disseminated into a public record, Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe hired her as a Snohomish County Prosecutor. A job that pays over $30,000.00 less per year than the job Ms. King held with Kenyon Disend.

Margaret King appears to be the only attorney in WSBA history who accepts a lower paying job in a dysfunctional agency like the Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office.

Additional public records from King County’s Major Crimes Unit also confirmed that former Aaron Reardon political operative Kevin Hulten was also using ACCESS checks to spy on citizens.  Public records from Prosecutor Mark Roe’s Office also documented that Prosecutor Sean Reay was also illegally using ACCESS to spy on citizens.

Aaron Reardon recently  Tweeted ” I am being sued for conspiracy without any evidence.”  Sorry Aaron old boy, but your little alter ego Kevin Hulten failed to completely “scrub” his computer files and King County’s Major Crime Unit documented your involvement with the Sky Valley Chronicle posts quite nicely, including Brian Parry and Chris Schwarzen’s involvement in criminal harassment on the County controlled Sky Valley Chronicle.

RCW 10.97 prohibits criminal background checks by anyone outside of law enforcement ( Pennington, Hulten, and Sean Reay are not law enforcement), and law enforcement only has a right to run permissible checks when a police officer stops a person for suspicious activity.

Over a two year period, Snohomish County ran illegal ACCESS checks on four open government supporters here in Gold Bar, and a former Dept of Emergency Management Officer confirmed that John E. Pennington would use Snohomish County Sheriff’s Officers Rodney Rochan and Kevin Prentiss to run criminal background checks on anyone who challenged the great sociopath’s, John E. Pennington and/or Aaron Reardon.

According to FBI agent Don Metcalfe, a suspicious activity report was filed against Anne Block. Meltcalfe has been added as a witness on Block’s 42 USC 1983 witness list.

King County Major Crimes Unit confirmed that Kevin Hulten was also using ACCESS checks to further his criminal harassment as detailed by the Snohomish County Herald in its February 14, 2013 article titled  ” Reardon’s Staff Linked to Harassment.”

See http://www.heraldnet.com/article/20130214/NEWS01/702149999
What citizens may not know is that Washington State law allows anyone to see their ACCESS records kept with the Washington State Patrol’s
(WSP) National Crime database.   You too can send a records request for a copy of your ACCESS checks to: Gretchen.Dolan@wsp.wa.gov seeking to know who ran ACCESS checks on you.

When the Gold Bar Reporters boyfriend received a “subpoena” from the Washington State Bar (WSBA) seeking ” all Gold Bar Reporters records… including ownership records as to who owns Crystal.com (otherwise known as Gold Bar’s “boob flashing Mayor” as described by Ellis Conklin in his January 13, 2013 posted in the Seattle Weekly)  and any records relating to Crystal Hill’s  one time friend and crutch Michael Brooks, the Gold Bar Reporters told the WSBA ” go pound sand, you have no legal right to media files protected under Washington State’s Media Shield Laws, and besides you failed to properly serve a CR 45 upon the proper WSBA member. ”

For our readers, Crystal.com is owned by an out of state interest, and Michael Brooks is a real person who is not subject to disclosure and is not Gold Bar activist Anne Block.

The WSBA confirmed in an email letter to the Gold Bar Reporter Anne Block that it “dismissed” pedophile John E. Pennington’s complaint and now was solely focusing in on Gold Bar Reporters failure to appear to comply with a subpoena served upon her boyfriend and not her. Court Rules of Washington mandate that a CR 45 subpoena must be served on the deponent not her boyfriend.  This mishap allowed Block to file for a “Protective Order” which the WSBA simply ignored without ruling on Block’s Motion. This allows Block to appeal the WSBA refusal to rule.

In the meantime, Gold Bar activist Anne Block filed a civil rights complaint in US Federal District against Snohomish County and the City of Gold Bar, and only after Block discovered evidence inside Gold Bar public records linking Mayor Joe Beavers to many defamatory post made using Gold Bar taxpayer monies to Reardon’s Sky Valley Chronicle blog.  In one email from Denise Beaston to Sky Valley Chronicle managing Agent Ron Fejfar, Beaston states ” Hey Ron, Joe ( Beavers) is having trouble logging in the Sky Valley Chronicle.” Fejfar writes back to Beaston giving explicit instructions on how to log in to the Sky Valley Chronicle.

The Sky Valley Chronicle’s Sole Purpose
Chris Schwarzen was a former Seattle Times Reporters and is a master of website design.  Mr. Schwarzen lives in Sultan, Washington.  Sultan is also home to the Sky Valley Chronicle, although Ron Fejfar filed a false statement with the State of Washington business licensing Department that he operates the Sky Valley Chronicle in Spokane.  Public records metadata documents that the Chronicle’s posts are made from individual households in King and Snohomish County including the home of  former DEM John E. Penningting in Duvall, Washington.

Schwarzen was well connected to Ron Fajfar from his days as a radio host named ” Chet Rogers.”  Chet Rogers and Ron Fejfar are the same person.  Schwarzen was hired by Aaron Reardon to start the Sky Valley Chronicle using  Fejfar’s company of ” Rogers and Company Media Group” to start up the Sky Valley Chronicle Media Group LLC.  The sole purpose of the Sky Valley Chronicle is and was to control the message in the Sky Valley.

Our investigation on who owns and operates the Sky Valley Chronicle has been ongoing for over two years, but a break in this story came when Aaron Reardon’s Executive assistant Kevin Hulten got caught criminally harassing Gold Bar activist Anne Block in the February 14, 2013 Daily Herald article. An article that Anne Block continues to credit as the main reason why the Berlin Wall starting cracking a much bigger corruption scandal up here in Snohomish County. A corruption scandal that involves the WSBA investigative lead counsel Linda Eide ( who is a personal friend to Gold Bar city attorney Michael Kenyon and Snohomish County’s corrupt Commissioner Goeffrey Gibbs).
Linda Eide and Michael Kenyon are good friends and serve on several WSBA boards together, as does Commissioner Geoffrey Gibbs.  Michael Kenyon has been using Gold Bar staff and resources attempting to have Gold Bar Reporter Anne Block disbarassed since becoming the City of Gold Bar’s attorney in April 2010.  Kenyon Disend’s involvement in the WSBA complaints was brought to light after Kenyon billed the taxpayers of Gold Bar to write and file the WSBA complaints; and former Gold Bar city clerk Penny confirmed that Block’s investigators that she ( Brenton) was ordered by Joe Beavers to write WSBA complaints against Block misusing City of Gold Bar monies.

A former Gold Bar city council member also gave testimony that Mayor Joe Beavers was ” bragging” to him in July 2009 that ” we are going to get Ms. Block disbarred.”

The harassment has been ongoing for five years. Why and how did the City of Gold Bar get involved here is simple and best described by Mayor Joe Beavers who in Executive Session screamed three times ” Crystal Hill is a whore!”  We have read over 700,000 email records and we can state that we absolutely 100 % agree with Mayor Joe Beavers on this one.
According to former insiders, Mayor Joe Beavers is covering up Crystal Hill and John E. Pennington’s computer crimes, and the City’s strategy was to out money and defame her ( Block).”  Those of us watching the criminal conduct of Mayor Beavers up here in Gold Bar can see how well that strategy worked and best detailed in the Washington State Auditor scathing December 2013 report on Beavers misuse of the City’s water fund monies to continue covering up for Crystal Hill and John Pennington’s computer crimes.

Whatever is in those emails must be pretty good because the City of Gold Bar and Snohomish County has spent over $1,000,000.000 of taxpayer monies and resources covering up crimes. And if it were not for Snhomish County’s largest cockroach John Pennington’s causing the deaths of 41 Oso residents in the mudslide debacle ( that Pennington created), the major media would have no interest in exposing the most corrupt political appointee in Snohomish County;  who is also a pedophile who preys on small children, and has a violent court record of beating up on women.

John E. Pennington makes us all proud to be Snohomish County residents. His Oso victims should be quite alarmed that Snohomish County public officials, including John Lovick, Gary Haackson, and Sean Reay knew about Pennington’s criminal conviction for harasssment but allowed Pennington to remain in a position where he could harm citizens.

Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe’s criminal involvement in protecting Snohomish County’s pedophile and wife beater is best detailed on Gold Bar Reporters page titled ” Criminals.”
After receiving public records from Snohomish County under RCW 42.56, Block discovered that John E. Pennington, while misusing county taxpayer resources, was having exparte communication with WSBA lead counsel Linda Eide. The WSBA has since refused to turn over the email communication sent between Eide and Pennington, but Snohomish County was forced to turn over public records confirming the ” pillow talk” emails between WSBA counsel Linda Eide and John Pennington.

As a result of WSBA corruption and continuous county and City of Gold Bar criminal harassment,  Anne Block decided to “disassociate” with the corrupt Washington State Bar.  The email communication between WSBA counsel Linda Eide and Snohomish County’s pedophile John Pennington was more like a boyfriend talking to his mistress than that of a WSBA objective investigator.

WSBA Linda Eide is either desperate for sexual attention or just duped by the Great Sociopath John Pennington.  Love is blind.

One local Gold Bar resident saw the emails between Linda Eide and John E. Pennington said ” Eide is sleeping with John E. Pennington.”  Linda Eide has refused comment about the pillow talk emails as of 5/25/2014.  We did offer to post Eide’s response per bettum but she refused.

John Pennington does have a long history of trying to bed people in an effort to control them.  This list includes two Senators, two house representatives, and two legislative aides here in Washington and a whole slew of pulbic officers who participated in a swingers parties at the Echo Lake Resort ( more coming on those parties and their log book at the end of the summer).

Knowing what WSBA Linda Eide’s relationship to Gold Bar city attorney Michael Kenyon was in the criminal harassment that Block suffered when she first requested access to public records in Snohomish County, Block decided that the Washington State Bar Association was a corrupt organization that she wanted nothing to do with, so she resigned citing massive corruption, criminal harassment and refused to renew her 2014 license.

Not renewing your license with the WSBA automatically suspends it. Block’s license has been suspended for renewal and she is now focused on suing Michael Kenyon, City of Gold Bar, and Snohomish County.  Block also plans to file a Recall Petition against Mark Roe in 30 days.

From the outside of the WSBA, Gold Bar activist Anne Block plans to file more public records suits inside Snohomish County and the City of Gold Bar until the County and the City rids itself of the corrupt people that are ruining it.

As for the WSBA, it’s going to be sued in US Federal Distinct Court for violating Ms. Block’s First Amendment right to “disassociate.”

Media Shield Laws here in Washington protect the Gold Bar Reporters from disclosing its files and our sources and cannot be trumped by corrupt government officials such as the WSBA and its number one co-conspirator Linda Eide.
With John Pennington’s removal and soon to be PBS special titled the  ” The Oso Mudslide Debacle” its appears that the two love birds will have to find a new birds nest to lay their eggs in and Crystal Hill’s meal ticket will soon vanish.

Just think of how different things would be in Snohomish County if every open government supporters sent the City of Gold Bar and Snohomish County this public records request:
Pursuant to RCW 42.56, please provide electronic copies of all email communication between Crystal Hill and John Pennington, from Janaury 1, 2009 to June 30, 2009.  Please provide all records records in native format with metadata. See Shoreline.

Snohomish County’s public records officer can be reached at:   PublicRecordsOfficer (SISPRO2@co.snohomish.wa.us)  and
the City of Gold Bar’s Mayor Linda Loen ( handling public records requests) can be reached at l.Loen@cityofgoldbar.us
If everyone reading this blog ( over 6,000 each day!!!)  requested access to public records, the City of Gold Bar and Snohomish County would have no choice but to turn over records. When fighting corrupt government officials, requesting access to public records pursuant to RCW 42.56 is one of the best tools of all.  So lets get to work shinning much needed light on the County’s cockroaches.
