President of Washington State Bar Association resigns hours before criminal warrant issued

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

On June 23, 2017, Washington State Bar Association’s (WSBA) President Robin Lynn Haynes was notified of pending criminal charges for theft.

Some of you may not have known this since the  Seattle Times (Washington’s most circulated newspaper) assisted the WSBA by not reporting.

In 2015, the Gold Bar Reporter contacted Seattle Times Editor Mike Carter, after having ample evidence that WSBA Hearing Officer Lin O’ Dell was using a convicted killer, Mark Plivilech, to steal from O’Dell’s elderly clients, but instead of reporting on WSBA O’Dell theft and fraud, Seattle Times Editor Mike Carter wrote ” Who cares.”

With no surprise, the biggest story involving WSBA corruption, President of WSBA resigns after her arrest warrant is issued, and the Seattle Times does what any embedded ( reporters who are spoon fed stories to look the other way on behalf of advertisers) journalist would do, not report the real news.

Not only was WSBA Hearing Officer Lin O’ Dell found guilty of stealing from her clients using a convicted killer to harass them inside their homes, the duo also  unlawfully diverted money to Mark Plivilech, a convicted killer, and Lin O’Dell’s fraudulent companies. Companies the duo started so that Lin O’ Dell could transfer client’s money from the elderly person’s trust account to pay Mark Plivilech and mafia friends to make home repairs on elderly clients homes ( many who are over 80 and bed ridden).

In December 2013, Judge Monasmith Steven County Washington found Lin O’Dell guilty of trust embezzlement. The WSBA has yet to take any disciplinary action against O’Dell ( June 24, 2017).

From sources, the WSBA received twelve complaints against Lin O’Dell over the last twenty years for stealing and the WSBA broomed every single one.  An insider from the WSBA said ” it’s common knowledge that lead counsel Linda Eide worked with Lin O’Dell inside the guardian scam” hence why so many complaints were dismissed.

Since 1993, attorney Lin O’Dell has been stealing from Washingtonians, almost all elderly and vulnerable adults. In one case from Pierce County, the Simpson case, the daughter who was caring for her father ended up dead, their house burnt down and a Caboose was stolen by Lin O’ Dell.

Over the last four years, we found at least ten clients Lin O’Dell has been stealing from and committing SSA fraud ( diverting clients SSA funds into her own bank account).  One fact is clear, Lin O’Dell and Mark Plivilech didn’t steal by themselves, they had a lot of help, including one Spokane County Commissioner, one Spokane County Superior Court Judge, one Stevens County Superior Court Judge, and one Dr Zimmerman ( who fled to Denton Texas once we started reporting on Lin O’Dell’s fraud).

However, WSBA Hearing Officer Lin O’Dell didn’t steal without the assistance of the Washington State Bar Association, and the Washington State Supreme Court.

Joe Patrice, a reporter with “Above the Law” wants to know ” What in the World is going on in Washington?”   Joe its simple, the WSBA has been taken over by scammers and fraudsters to further their agenda ( stealing with no accountability).

The 39-year-old Robin Haynes, who last year became the youngest lawyer to hold the President position.   Gonzaga Law School brags that she is a mentor.  This begs a question: Is Ms. Haynes teaching racketeering 101 or how to steal with the assistance of the WSBA?


Sadly Ms. Haynes has been replaced by WSBA Brad Furlong who has ties to more WSBA criminals, Geoffrey Gibbs and his co-conspirators Lin O’Dell ( Gibbs and O’Dell scammed taxpayers out of thousands on the Snohomish County Housing Authority scam of Whispering Pines).

Robin Haynes is well connected with Supreme Court Justices Debra Stephens, Barbara Madsen, Mary Yu and Mary Fairhurst. So much so that Haynes funneled public monies to their campaigns.   The next time our readers decided to contribute to Justice for All, think twice.

How we know this is simple: Robin Haynes bragged about it on her Instagram account.

Robin Haynes “brags” she is a at a backyard Barbie Q with WA State Chief Supreme Justice Mary Fairhurst. Perhaps Justice Fairhurst has never heard of Judicial Ethics Cannon Rules, Appearance of Fairness?

So Joe Patrice, you ask ” What in the World is going on in Washington State? ‘ Well it’s called racketeering, fixing cases, forging and withholding evidence to ensure convictions, fraud, and WSBA elite few members stealing with the assistance of the WSBA Office of Disciplinary Counsel ( Linda Eide and Doug Ende).

Washingtonians need not worry but we’re going to abolish the Washington State Bar Association. They are making criminals out of non-criminals and we must do everything in our power to stop them with as much sunshine as possible.  Stay tuned.


STOP CORRUPTION NOW

If you look at great human civilizations, from the Roman Empire to the Soviet Union, you will see that most do not fail simply due to external threats but because of internal weakness, corruption, or a failure to manifest the values and ideals they espouse.

Dean Bellamy, linked to Washington State Bar Officer Lin O’Dell and convicted killer Mark Plivilech

Dean Bellamy, a former bank executive  who the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office shot and killed last night is connected to massive government corruption in Washington State.

Another local journalist Brandia posted a story documenting Dean Bellamy’s ties to Washington State Hearing Officer Lin O’Dell and her convicted killer husband Mark Plivilech’s ( Spokane) involvement in a housing scam up here in Snohomish County.  With no surprise, Washington State’s very own attorney G. Geoffrey Gibbs ( below), Snohomish County’s very own Whitey Bugler, represented the Snohomish County Housing Authority.  Lin O’Dell and Dean Bellemy started the Whispering Pines, a Snohomish County Housing Authority scam to defraud the taxpayers.

Gibbs Pic

Gibbs Gibbs

Instead of being disbarred as any common criminal would be, attorney G. Geffrey Gibbs was appointed by the Washington State Supreme Court in charge of financial affairs for the Washington State Bar Association.

Geoffrey Gibbs has been sued five times for racketeering, but each time a suit is filed,  his friends inside U.S. Federal District Court are assigned, violating years of 9th Circuit precedent mandating that all Washington State Bar members be removed and an out of state judge be assigned when the Bar is listed as a defendant

Geoffrey Gibbs is also linked to a very big taxpayer fraud scandal in Snohomish County ( coming soon).


Plivilech

Attorney Lin O’Dell and Mark Plivilech were recently caught stealing homes, trust monies and art from elderly clients homes  throughout Washington State.  In one case, two care takers who were about to expose Lin O’Dell for theft of clients trust funds all of the sudden died.  (Simpson Estate, Pierce County).  Then conveniently for Lin O’Dell, the Simpson house burned to the ground; Pierce County ruled fire suspicious, more than likely arson.

Hundreds of thousands of dollars missing from elderly estates, and estates only when Lin O’Dell was in charge of guardianship. Many of the O’Dell’s elderly clients homes had her convicted killer husband Mark Plivilech as a lien holder on the home for performing home repairs on terminal clients of O’Dell’s homes.

In most, if not all O’Dell’s guardianship scams, Spokane County Superior Court Judge Annette Plese and Commissioner Grovdahl were on the petitions. Petitions for guardianship that both Judge Plese and Commissioner Grovdahl signed off on for Lin O’Dell against treating medical advice.

mtgrsfordummiesa2016

The Gold Bar Reporter is investigating over 10 other clients estates where Lini O’Dell and convicted killer Mark Plivilech depleted clients trust accounts, flipping money from one trust account to another ( stealing from Paul to pay Peter), and stealing personal property from elderly clients of Lin O’Dell. Theft includes very expensive art work.

Dean Bellemy was part of a bad business loan scam that helped O’Dell steal elderly clients homes all over Washington State.  Bellamy joined AmericanWest as a commercial loan officer in July 1997.  Bellemy was a senior vice president at American West from January 2002 until May 2005 and was named the banks Lender of the Year for 2004.

 


 

Lin O’Dell Bad Business,Murder, Undue influence (Part 1) Ties to Robert Caruso

I also did not realize how right I was about the fact that this couple is creating and then closing corporations to evade accountability for their scheme. They are also using these corporations to move around ill gotten gains and other people’s property that they had no business selling or moving.

I have also found it very interesting that a good deal of her clients, although deceased, are not listed in the Social Security Index most of them don’t have family so there is no one there to “sound the alarm” and even more disturbing is that a certain Judge has sealed or destroyed most of those clients records.

The Prosecutor who convicted Linda O’Dell’s (Washington State Bar Association Hearing Officer) boyfriend Mark Plivelich Fred Caruso is actually Robert Caruso’s younger brother. What better way to “get back at someone” then to attack their family? It also explains why Mr Caruos (the elder) is always under fire.

It seems when I find another corrupt player I don’t just stumble over it, I come crashing down like thunder on it.

This is a story that is going to need a few parts, maybe more then a few This one is past bizarre and it is deeply disturbing.

Lin O’Dell ~ AKA ~  Linda Diane O’Dell ~ AKA ~ Linda Worthington

I was researching the member’s of the WSBA disciplinary board hearings officers and found that this woman lives with a man who killed his best friend and then took a nap

I see a familiar name: Caruso, I haven’t had time to write or call Robert Caruso to see what his connection is to this Fred Caruso but kind of interesting to me that the WSBA is on a witch hunt for Bob Caruso and it just so happens that a Fred Caruso convicted this woman’s boyfriend but that is another story…

At first I just found these:

1st one makes sense, she’s an attorney/nurse so no big deal…

ADVANCE MEDIATION SERVICES, LLC -- OpenCorporates 2014-11-17 22-37-19

So I research & find out she has a business doing guardianships…

ALLIANCE GUARDIANSHIP & PROFESSIONAL SERVICES, PLLC -- OpenCorporates 2014-11-17 22-35-27

Then we’ve got Lin O’Dell running a design co with this Plivelich guy

Turns out she has a soft side for horses, that’s a good thing I think ???

EQUINE WELFARE COALITION -- OpenCorporates 2014-11-17 22-36-20

Then I see this for something called Whispering Pines, this one really bothers me so I am going to be doing more research on this one which does business with HASCO (Housing Authority of Snohomish County)

I find her & him listed at the construction company again but now something new: He is one of the owners of something called “Complete Estate Services” which could be most anything but I dig a little deeper…

I then find out that one of these properties came as a sale from one of the people this woman was supposed to be a GAL for, which she got a 208,000.00 property for 15,000.00. There would be many instances where she would be responsible for the sale & disposal of any of her clients assets after they pass away so that is not really odd, I found tons of documents for sales she signed off on but she can NOT sell herself her clients property for 1/13 of it’s value.

So what do all of these documents even mean besides that they might be poor business people… Well it means that they are hiding some things behind corporate veils, and as soon as the heat comes down on them they close up shop and just start a new gig.

They are now operating without a business license and she is practicing law in Idaho but she is NOT a member of the Idaho Bar. For some strange reason they closed up shop in May and August of this year on their main two businesses

She is profiting off of the people she is supposed to be protecting, and all over the internet are stories about her draining people’s loved one’s account. She always seem to be in front of the same Judge(s) when she wins in court and shuts people’s families out.

It is going to take me a while to get a hold of the people I have figured out that have been abused by her, 2 folks have agreed to an interview but there are at least 20 more that I know of. The problem is that the families have been so abused and are so terrified that many of them have left the state

The reason she caught my interest is that she is one of the people on the WSBA disciplinary board, but she is like the typical onion in power… layer after layer of questionable crap.

For a very long time she was a nurse, then a hearings examiner for the Washington State Health Board, she also does a lot of guardian work and somewhere in there she became a lawyer who’s shacked up with a killer. So this nurse lawyer guardian ends up on the WSBA disciplinary board? You can’t even make this stuff up. I have tons more documents to lay out but I have much more info to gather as well.

In at least one case, they purchased a home from one of O’Dell’s clients Harry Highland for $15K (valued at $208,000.00).  Harry Highland was a resident at the retirement community. So now we can see all of their business ventures and failures but make no mistake: They did not truly fail and there was plenty of money made but not nearly enough taxes paid on his part

Search Results 2014-11-18 02-09-56but no worries… she got plenty of her client’s money at their disposal and in their control

Search Results 2014-11-18 15-08-22I know there is a lot of info and if you didn’t know something about the rules of professional conduct and different laws you wouldn’t even think about it at all. That is what she is counting on.

Would you want your beloved vulnerable family member in the care of a murderer? How many of these folks even know this, most I’ve contacted so far did not.

She is mostly always in front of the same judge, I am also doing research right now to see how many lawyers have been sanctioned, fined or disbarred that have crossed this woman. Then there is the matter of her connection to Joseph Nappi and his law firm in these matters and there are many.

*** I have received a lot of information but I have not been able to confirm it, until I do I can”t print it but please don’t worry or get discouraged, I am looking and once I get into something I don’t quit til I get to the bottom of it. I know you want your stories told and I know that you are not lying but I have to have documentation to back up what I am saying.

On the surface this looks legit, like business as usual but it is anything but that. I will probably be down for about 3 or 4 days while I go through the documents and the interviews so I can find the common threads.

Washington State Bar Association, to be abolished over felonious conduct

Late last summer, the Gold Bar Reporter was first to break a story about the Washington State Bar Association’s dropping the word ” association.”

Our source, an insider close to Supreme Court Justice Barbara Madsen stated ” the WSBA is trying to come up with a plan to push liability off on Washington State taxpayers, because it’s clear that the Bar is going to lose Scannell v WSBA et al. and Block v WSBA et al. over felonious racketeering and anti-trust violations. ”

We just learned that Washington State Bar  Association has officially voted to drop the word association, in an effort to push liability of 50 Million plus onto Washington State taxpayers, instead of pushing liability to its’ members the above two cases.

In Block’s cases, public records from Snohomish County and the United States Post Office documented that John Pennington ( man who killed 43 people in the Oso mudslides, only suspect in the rape of 5 year old girl from Cowlitz County Washington, and is now working for Pierce College), set up a post office box in Duvall Washington to pass  financial bribes to attorney Lin O’Dell and her convicted killer boyfriend  Mark Plivilech, while at the same time, John Pennington is the  man, according to the lead detective on a Cowlitz  County case from 1992, the man who is responsible for the rape of a 5 year old girl.   Instead of suing Block, John Pennington enlisted his friend Linda Eide, Washington State Bar’s lead counsel, and Washington State Bar Board member Geoffrey Gibbs, to go after Block, a journalist who held a WSBA Bar license, for reporting on John Pennington criminal conduct.

In John Scannell ‘s case, Washington State Bar counsel members Scott Bugsby and Linda Eide tried to gain access into John Scannell’s attorney client files in an effort to go after a Board member’s political foe and Scannell’s client Paul King.

A source said ” The Bar knows that once you two win, you’re coming after them personall to collect damages, starting with members of the WSBA Office of Disciplinary Counsel.”


Washington State Bar’s letter to its members

 

IMPORTANT – if you want the WSBA to continue as your professional association, you should attend one or more of three upcoming meetings at the Seattle WSBA offices, discussed more completely below:

  • Public meeting of the WSBA Bylaws Workgroup on August 8
  • Special Meeting of the BOG on Aug 23
  • Regular Meeting of the BOG on Sept 29/30.

I attended the WSBA BOG meeting Friday in Walla Walla, having recently realized (through my work on theSections Policy Workgroup) that the BOG is now starting to implement a comprehensive series of sweeping changes to (i) the WSBA Bylaws, (ii) Court Rule 12.1 and to (iii) the Bar Act.

These changes are being implemented incrementally for tactical reasons, but are designed and intended ultimately to:

  • Substantially reduce the ability of Members to influence WSBA governance – in violation of the Bar Act,
  • Eliminate the WSBA’s role as its “Members” professional association,
  • Wholly and unambiguously convert the WSBA into a public entity/government agency with the singular and exclusive mission of serving the public, and
  • Enhance and expand the scope of the Washington State Supreme Court’s influence and control over all aspects of the WSBA (including setting Member dues), not just matters relating to licensing, regulation, attorney discipline and other such areas.

These changes are part of a longer term and little known Strategic Plan that is the product of these and other key WSBA leaders:

  • Executive Director Paula Littlewood,
  • Immediate Past President Anthony Gipe,
  • President William Hyslop,
  • WSBA General Counsel Jean McElroy

The full scope of the changes and the underlying justifications for them are detailed in:

For your convenience, here’s a link to the Public Materials for the Walla Walla meeting (all 656 pages):

I then identified four of the proposed Bylaw Amendments most concerning to me:

  • First, I strongly objected to changing the name of the WSBA after 128 years to drop the word “Association,” emphasizing that this change is explicitly intended clarifythat the WSBA is not actually a professional association of attorneys. I said I thought most WSBA Members would find this highly objectionable and would be quite surprised to learn that they weren’t really part of a professional association for lawyers.
  • Second, I objected to putting the Washington Supreme Court in charge of determining members’ dues and said I thought others would too.
  • Third, I described the creation of three more appointed Board seats as undemocratic and bad from a governance perspective because appointed seats are subject to abuse by vesting too much power in the hands of too few. [Note: these changes to the BOG composition would also directly violate RCW 2.48.030of the Bar Act regarding the “Board of Governors.” The BOG is arguably illegally constituted currently based on that RCW.]
  • Fourth, I objected to giving limited license practitioners a greatly out-sized percentage of the Board seats relative to their de minimis numbers – i.e., 2 Board seats from a total of fewer than 20 limited license practitioners. [In my view, these folks should have to run within their Districts just like other Bar Members. At best they should be entitled to only a single designated seat.]

A reporter who was present at the Washington State Bar’s meeting said ” I added that I had read through the Governance Task Force Report twice in recent days and that I wasn’t too enamored with it, and that I had found much of its key analysis conclusionary and unpersuasive.”

He further stated “My comments stirred up quite a few folks, including current and former BOG members, several of whom said essentially that these issues had already been debated and discussed for a long time and that it was time to move forward with all of the recommendations in the Governance Report, including the first group of Bylaw Amendments under consideration.  These Governance Report recommendations have strong momentum. One gentleman even said he didn’t necessarily agree with the decisions made but that a lot of time and effort had going into them and it was time to start passing them because folks had done a lot of work and he wanted to see the results. So much for not being pushed into bad decisions by undue focus on sunk costs. ”

 

Mr. Gipe is currently running for King County Superior Court Position #52 – a position that could be the first step on a path to the Washington State Supreme Court, where he could ultimately exercise the control over the WSBA that he currently seeks to vest in that body. I personally feel it is very important to prevent this and thus to keep Mr. Gipe out of the judiciary. That is why I have gone to great lengths to support his opponent in the race. If you share my concerns…. Proposed Policies Eliminating or Restricting Religious (Cultural) Practices During the morning discussion of the WSBA’s proposed restrictions on religious practices, members of the Indian Law Section EC and many others from varied backgrounds advocated strongly that the Indian Law Section should be allowed to continue whatever religious and cultural practices they thought were appropriate, both for reasons of ensuring those who practice

Gold Bar residents threaten to Recall Linda “High as a Kite” Loen

74497___gustavorezende___Kids_6_03

 

The Washington State Auditor’s Office cited the City of Gold Bar for misappropriation of public funds for the 4th year in a row. Since 2009, the City of Gold Bar’s public officials, including Crystal Hill Pennington ( a.k.a Berg, convicted of bank fraud in 2005), Joe Beavers, and now Linda ” High as a Kite” Loen have been stealing from the City’s water funds to pay attorney Michael Kenyon ( Kenyon Disend) to continue covering up computer crimes committed by disgraced former Snohomish County Department of Emergency political appointee John E. Pennington.

One onlooker described new Gold Bar Councilmember Kendall Wallace’s face as ” as white as a ghost” as residents crowded city hall on Tuesday demanding answers as to why the City of Gold Bar is now facing a water rate increase of 271 %. 


Loen

Gold Bar’s Mayor Linda Loen, a proven failure, who seems to be more interested in smoking pot instead of doing her job.


080917-131233-460007

One resident screamed ” We need to Recall Linda Loen! ”  The concerned and pissed off Gold Bar citizen need not worry because a Recall Petition is being drafted against Linda Loen, and Florence Davi Martin ( who also voted to misappropriate public funds to continue funding the criminal racketeering crimes committed by attorney Michael Kenyon and John E. Pennington).   We are awaiting the Washington State Auditor records for much needed evidence to make sure the Recall against Linda Loen sticks. But Loen can be assured that its coming! 100 % for certain. 

The Department of Health rejected the City’s ” Beaverized”  water comp plan last year, as Joe Beavers fraudulently claimed that he was an ” Engineer” and inferred that he was capable of making adjustments to the water plan without a licensed Washington State Engineer involved.  A complaint against Joe Beavers was filed with the Dept. of Licensing and Joe Beavers was ORDERED to stop referring to himself as an Engineer.

Then the Department of Health issued a DEMAND for the City to produce a valid water comp plan and the Washington State Auditor again ORDERED the City to stop stealing from the City’s water fund to fund litigation.  Litigation that is now linked to helping Attorney Michael Kenyon and G. Geoffrey Gibbs covering up their little Racketeering scandal committed in 2008.

G. Geoffrey Gibbs, attorney Michael Kenyon, Sandra Sullivan ( aka Meadowcraft), Joe Beavers, Crystal Hill Pennington and John E. Pennington are amongst several criminal racketeers’ being sued in United States Federal District Court.


 

A copy of the Racketeering Complaint explaining the criminals conduct is nicely stated in the RICO suit filed in US Fed Court. Click below

See  http://twitdoc.com/view.asp?id=240270&sid=55E6&ext=PDF&lcl=block-v-WSBA-RICO.pdf&usr=SkyValleyNews&doc=294503385&key=key-GqDGvN4pGjxOWy5LnziT


The city claims that the purpose of the water rate fee amendment is to fund badly needed repairs to the water system’s aging infrastructure. However, the City left out the fact that its been misusing Gold Bar water funds – over $1,000,000.00 – to fund litigation to protect attorney Michael Kenyon’s criminal conduct nicely outlined in the RICO suit filed in Us Federal Court on December 28, 2015.  See link above.

Gold Bar resident Toni Jurin stated “My understanding is that well four was undrinkable; that there was way too much arsenic in it and that’s why we’re mixing it with well three,” “Sooner or later that problem has to be resolved.”

 “Our water quality is good. We had one hit of .01 milligrams per liter on arsenic in well four,” John Light said. 

Better question for John Light is ” since he doesn’t live in Gold Bar, how would you know? After all the city uses bottled water inside City Hall.”

Six Gold Bar residents demanded a town hall meeting before any rate increase occurs. 

Councilmember Davi  ” Cupcake” Martin responded by issuing condescending remarks to citizens saying ” we’ve already held meetings”. 

There’s only one problem for Davi “Cupcake” Martin, the City violated Open Public Meetings Act when it held these “secret meetings without publication.”

 the city held workshops and presentations with very limited attendance. According to the city, a workshop was held on Sept. 22 and a presentation by a water-rate consultant was held on Oct. 6. Further council discussion was held on Nov. 3, Dec. 1 and Dec. 15, all of which were publicized on the city’s website. After the Dec. 1 council meeting, a mass-mailer was sent to the city’s water customers, apprising them of the proposed rate change. 

“Our job as the city is to supply good water, and unfortunately we have a very, very old infrastructure that needs a lot of work,” Martin said. “The point is, we’re stuck between a rock and a hard spot. We have good water now, but it needs to be maintained. We can’t maintain it on what we’re charging now.”

Steven Fore, who owns Alpine Adventures, an outdoor white water recreation business on U.S. 2 stated that he has concerns over the city’s strategy, which appears to him to be completely ineffective. He has no problem paying an increased rate, he said, but the city’s current approach will not solve the problem. 

Ms. Fore’s statement about strategy is related to how Gold Bar has misappropriated over $1,000,000.00 hiding racketeering crimes committed in emails.

The Supreme Court has decided to review the emails in question, but since we already know what’s behind the curtain inside those emails, we’re going to hold off publishing what it is that the City has misappropriated over $1,000,000.00 of Gold Bar’s water fund covering up… all for a pedophile named John E. Pennington ( fired from Snohomish County Dept of Emergency Management on January 1, 2016, after he killed 43 Oso residents in the most preventable loss of life natural disaster in Washington State’s history).

Steve Fore admonished the council for “chasing away” Councilmember Lee Hodo, who resigned in December. Hodo has extensive background in engineering, Fore said, and is well-equipped to handle the current issues. He referred to Hodo as “the exact person you need to fix the problem.”

Don’t worry Mr. Fore, the City of Gold Bar is being sued for Racketeering and our hope is that the criminals who have been misusing our resources for their personal gain will be locked up behind bars once we start taking depositions.

Tracy Cotterill said “This sounds like it’s bigger than we are… Has anyone thought about PUD? “

“It’s our town. It’s not your town,”“Do we need to start putting petitions out? Would that do it? If we put out a petition demanding that we be allowed to vote on any water increases, would you let us in then?” Steve Fore said.

Bravo Mr. Fore, its time that others lend a helping hand to those of us who have been fighting the massive Racketeering cancer that Washington State Bar Board of Governor and number Snohomish County criminal G. Geoffrey  Gibbs and attorney Michael Kenyon have perpetrated upon our community all in an effort to cover up the criminal racketeering conduct of Crystal Hill Pennington ( Berg, convicted of bank fraud 2005), John E. Pennington ( former DEM Sno Co who is linked to missing children  all over the Pacific Northwest) and attorney Michael Kenyon’s criminal conduct.

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.


Washington State Bar Racketeering caught on camera


2000px-FEMA_logo_svg

From FEMA to Snohomish County Washington, dark  secrets unearthed; Washington State Bar Association to protect pedophiles and wife beaters like John E. Pennington


UPDATE: Public records reveal that Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe confirmed that John E. Pennington is man responsible for the rape of a 5 year old girl from Cowlitz County Washington

Pedophile

John E. Pennington, only suspect in rape of 5 year old child from Cowlitz County, Washington; also kicked out of a San Diego church for molesting two boys during a church camping trip

redmond-pd1_Page_1


pennington-redmond_Page_1


 

We’ve been investigating John Pennington’s past thirty years on this planet for over seven years.

Pages from Socipath John Pennington-2We never thought we’d get to this point, finally uncovering why John E. Pennington has been so desperately trying to hide hs past. Well it’s simple, he’s a pedophile ( who enjoys taking naked showers with little girls, molested two boys ) and a wife beater, and once the feds learned the truth he was terminated from FEMA.


John Pennington is a sociopath; and how he met an attorney named Michael Kenyon who helped Johnny cover up his rape of a five year old child from Cowlitz County.

Well documented in our past stories https://goldbarreporter.org/2015/04/04/attorney-michael-kenyons-dirty-bag-of-secrets-part-ii/


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 in June 2016.  Stay tuned, it will be our pleasure to bring it “live” to our followers.

John Pennington’s involvement with Echo Lake animal abuse sex scandal will be discussed in the very near future.  Let’s just say,  ” Penny is a sick bastard!”

Dave Somers marks a new sunshine era for Snohomish County Washington

11210442_1589961841260889_8712376624821787200_n

Dave Somers, Snohomish County Executive Elect 2016-2020


Most of you who know me well, know that I seldom ever support any specific candidate, because I seldom trust politicians. Washington Coalition for Open Government President Toby Nixon is one exception.

However all that changed this year, while in Great Brittan, I learned that Dave Somers decided to run for Snohomish County Executive against John Lovick’s corrupt executive officers.  Which as of today, I can affirmatively state extends to Olympia.


I remember contacting Dave saying I’d like to make a campaign contribution to your campaign, can you please let me know who your campaign manager is, and his response was that he was a one a man show.

I encouraged Dave to stay the course, because I spent countless hours on the phone ( sometimes pulling all nighters) with other like minded sunshine citizens who are frustrated and fed up with the corruption.

I know Washingtonians are ready for a clean and honest government, and are now frustrated enough  to take an active role in holding corrupt government officials accountable. However, I asked Dave to remember one basic political science principle its we the people and that only reason voters will vote for you is that they perceive you as their best chance for change.”

This year’s election is proof, but time will tell if Dave remembers his responsibility to we the people, not ye the corrupt few.”

Looking over the last three years, I became a regretful voter of Governor Inslee. When Governor Jay Inslee decided to back a thug and bum named John Lovick for Snohomish County Executive, who for years covered up for executive criminals like John E. Pennington, Mark Ericks, Brian Lewis, Peter Camp, and Brian Perry, I knew he was part of the problem up in Snohomish County.

Governor Inslee’s silence on the corruption inside every Washington State agency is quite disturbing and has me left regretting my vote.  Surprisingly, Governor Inslee stopped all death penalty cases here in Washington – something I highly respected him for- but after reviewing evidence of massive corruption inside every government agency in Washington State, I’ve come to believe that he felt that its ok to place victims of our corrupt government in jail or label citizens felons so long as we don’t kill them.

Perhaps he was having trouble sleeping at night because he knows how corrupt Washington State government is?  By allowing our government to “trump up criminal charges on hard working honest citizens, turning them into criminals, I believe Inslee is part of the problem.”

Sorry Governor Inslee I gave you two years to attack the massive corruption inside our government but You chose to ignore it. You and John Lovick not only ignored, but you allowed it to grow like a cancer met to every organ of this state.

I can’t stop seeing images of that small baby pulled lifeless, dead, from the Oso mudslides; mudslides could have been avoided had John E. Pennington not told former Executive Aaron Reardon in an email ” its good to build boss.”  An email that we turned over to John Pennington’s Oso victims, hoping to help add a little closure to the gross amount of pain and suffering John E. Pennington was allowed to cause to so many.

I admit I am not John E. Pennington’s only victim.

I blame John Lovick and John E. Pennington for causing the deaths of 43 people, because instead of doing his job, John Pennington criminally harassed a citizen on the County’s payroll, operated his own for profit company, never earned an accredited college degree, and criminally assaulted women and children,  instead of mitigating loss of human life.

According to Snohomish County’s charter, mitigation was solely John E. Pennington’s job, and if having caused 43 people to suffocate to death wasn’t’ deserving of F” for failure, I’m not sure what it is.

But instead in May 2015, John Lovick wrote an email letter to John  E. Pennington stating ” You’re a great leader”, which triggered a response from me saying  If killing 43 people in Oso mudslides is evidence of a great leader, I’d hate to see what your definition of a bad leader is Mr. Lovick.”

For over three years, I turned over mounds of files on John Pennington to the Washington State Bar totaling over 1800 pages of Exhibits; Exhibits the Washington State Bar tirelessly conspired to exclude (and Linda Eide and Lin O’Dell tried to destroy, but were unable to because we sent those files via emails preserving those for years to come) hoping to continue the massive cover up all in an effort to protect a political bum’s criminal conduct.


If I were Governor, I would have filed negligent homicide charges against John E. Pennington, not allowed him to collect a $11,000.00 a month welfare check, thus adding insult to the people he killed in Oso. But instead John Lovick and Jay Inslee ignored and spit on their constituents.

John Lovick’s career is over just like Aaron Reardon, and as a  result of allowing John E. Pennington to criminally harass citizens instead of mitigating loss of life in Washington State’s most preventable nature disaster loss to human life, the Oso mudslides.  John E. Pennington is being sued for Racketeering in U.S Federal Court, and more likely than not a new RICO suit will be filed for his, corrupt cop Lori Batiot, Joe Beavers and Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg, convicted of bank fraud 2005) criminal conduct in 2015.

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

Pedophile

“ Hecka of job, double Johnny boys”


Over the last seven years, I’ve had my life threatened by John E. Pennington, and Gold Bar’s former Mayor Crystal Hill ( nee Berg, convicted of bank fraud 2005)  and Joe Beavers. I had my property rights extorted by the trio, but not without the assistance of Washington State Bar Office of Disciplinary Counsel members  Linda Eide, Lin O’Dell, Julie Shankland, and Alison Sato, and our wonderful friends from Snohomish County Prosecutors Office, Mark Roe, Margaret King, and Sean Reay.

The amount of damage the above people have done to Washington State must be repaired, otherwise We see no end in sight.



As a youngster, I campaigned for a lot of politicians, but knowing Dave Somers is a honest politician who holds true to his promises, I was ecstatic to hear that may be, possibly, Snohomish County government may have a chance of conducting itself in a honest and respectful manner.

Bigger question is whether Dave will continue the cover up for the criminals listed herein, or expose them with hell of a lot of Sunshine. Time will tell.

My only hope is that I don’t regret my decision to back Dave Somers as Snohomish County’s only clear chance for Sunshine in 2016, because I know that once he crosses what I consider to be an ethical line, my compassion for him will turn to stone and I will spend another century scrutinizing his conduct as well.

“License to steal” with the assistance of the Washington State Bar

How Guardians from the Washington State Bar Disciplinary Officers

are given a license to steal from Washington State’s most vulnerable adults


Forward:

When lawyers steal from their clients, It’s We the taxpayers that end up paying the bill.

Attorney Lin ( Linda) O’Dell ( aka Worthington), an attorney handpicked by the Washington State Bar Association  (WSBA) Office of Disciplinary Counsel (ODC) to hear complaints filed against lawyers by clients ( non clients should have no forum) uses a convicted killer named Mark Plivilech to intimidate vulnerable adults, while she uses WSBA influence to continue stealing and depleting elderly clients trusts.

But O’Dell doesn’t do this alone, she gets a pass from the WSBA ODC.

Once Lin O’Dell and other attorneys involved in the same conduct as stated herein deplete the clients’ trust accounts, they place the client on Medicare and/or on the Medicaid system.

Our elderly deserve to die with dignity, and without the elite few WSBA members associated with the Office of Disciplinary Council and WSBA Boards lining their pockets with the gold of others, stealing with the assistance of a few Commissioners’ and Judges, at the expense of the United States taxpayers.

We have drafted a “Brady List” of Judges, Commissioners, and attorneys we know are involved in criminal conduct as outlined herein and will be posting names soon to our “ Brady List.”

Sadly, attorney Spokane attorney Lin O’Dell is not the exception, but she is part of the Racketeering scandal exposed over the past year involving what we call the center of the rotten onion, the WSBA ODC.

Onion

The WSBA ODC is using police officers, attorneys and judges to trump up criminal charges on honest hard working citizens and attorneys who speak out against corrupt government officials, and we ( Americans) must do everything in our power to peacefully and legally stop them. Their actions of going after honest lawyers and whistleblowers who attempt to expose corrupt judges, attorneys and police officers stifles our free market economy, and as in my case, violates Sherman Antitrust laws.

We the people are the checks and balances to an honest and clean government. As a person who grew up with two activist parents, who were no parents of the year by any stretch of the truth, I was brought up to believe there is no greater sacrifice or greater good on Mother Earth then helping the sick, elderly, abused, exposing corrupt government officials, and helping the wrongfully convicted. I value the First Amendment to US Constitution as the greatest gift Thomas Jefferson’s gave to America, more valuable than a Bar license.


 

If you look at great human civilizations, from the Roman Empire to the Soviet Union, you will see that most do not fail simply due to external threats but because of internal weakness, corruption, or a failure to manifest the values and ideals they espouse. Cory Booker

 

Attorney Lin O’Dell, a thief, an attorney, a nurse, and a guardian  

Washington State Bar (WSBA) Disciplinary Hearing Officer Lin (Linda) O’Dell (aka Worthington) is stealing from Washington State vulnerable adults, manly over the age of 60, and being aided by the WSBA’s Office of Disciplinary Counsel (ODC) members, Scott Busby and Linda Eide, and her partner, a convicted killer named Mark Plivilech ( Spokane).

Attorney Lin O’Dell’s Linked In page:

Lin O'Dell - LinkedIn 2015-10-04 10-04-24

Attorney Lin O’ Dell brags about her days as an administrative hearing officer for the Department of Health, she worked as a nurse and is now a guardian overseeing elderly clients trust accounts.

Lin O’Dell is not licensed in Idaho, only Washington. A relevant issue discussed later.

Does being a nurse or a guardian, especially one that has never engaged in the practice of law constitute qualifications under the WSBA guidelines for hearing officers?

Simply put, no.  I ‘ve researched the WBSA rules on appointing hearings officers and discovered that in order for the WSBA member to be appointed as a hearing officer one must have been engaged in the practice of law.  Here, Ms. O’ Dell appears to be the exception to this rule, since she never practiced law.

This begs the question on who appointed an unqualified attorney to hear issues relating to violation by WSBA members?

According to the WSBA public records officer, Ms. O’Dell was handpicked by another shyster from Spokane, attorney Joseph Nappi Jr. Mr. Nappi’s investigative file and his cash only deals with clients will be discussed in another investigative blog coming soon.


Attorney Lin O’Dell, using convicted killer Mark Plivilech to intimidate elderly vulnerable clients 

Now, on its face this may not seem too bad in the scheme of things, but lets add in this bit of facts.  Lin O’Dell’s background was searched extensively, and what we yielded was that she shacked up with a convicted killer named Mark Plivilech and extensive IRS and other financial problems.  YES our readers are reading this correctly; WSBA attorney and hearing officer Lin O’Dell’s partner of choice is a convicted killer.

Plivilech

If a WSBA hearing officer having a convicted killer as her partner of choice doesn’t sound bad enough, hold onto your seats because we have some more wonderful news.

According to internal court declarations and an extensive background check our investigators ran on Mark Plivilech, Lin O’Dell acting as a guardian for elderly vulnerable adults – many bed ridden elderly Americans- listed killer Mark Plivilech as a “case manager” on twenty (22) of her elderly clients’ accounts.

Once I learned that a convicted killer was acting as a case manager on vulnerable adults accounts, I called the Washington State Attorney General’s Office asking one simple question ” Can a convicted killer serve as a case manager on vulnerable or elderly Washingtonians trust account s or as a guardian ad litem?”

The Washington State Attorney General’s Office started laughing, for which I said  ” No, I am serious.”  The phone became silent for a minute and the attorney general said ” NO, absolutely not !” very loudly.


Attorney Lin O’Dell has stolen  $3,000,000.00 + from the Shank Trust Account, and was caught forging documents

O'Dell theft 4M

Court documents show that at the time of Norma Shank’s death, The Shank Trust had almost $4,000,000.00, at the end of 2011.

Paula Fowler is from Idaho, and how and why she came into contact with a thief and attorney named Lin O’ Dell can best be described by one of her closest friends who said ” Paula went into Colville attorney Pruitt Hamm’s office for a divorce, and came out with as a guardian ward. But not before Pruitt Hamm made exparte contacts with Lin O’Dell’s attorney in Idaho, Pamela Massey. Soon thereafter, Massey and O’Dell forged documents claiming that  Ms. Fowler’s mother, Norma Shank, had revoked the first Shank Will written in 2000, and only after Norma Shank was diagnosed with dementia, did this new Will appear with the assistance of attorney Lin O’Dell, attorney Richard Wallace, and Idaho attorney Paula Massey.”

We reviewed the both Wills and believe all attorneys involved should be charged with criminal Racketeering as the Will’s metadata has been stripped ( to hide when and who wrote it)


Exploiting and stealing from our elderly vulnerable adults

The only living Will of Norma Shank was signed in 2000, leaving her entire estate worth well over $5,000,000.00 to Paula Fowler, with no trust. No trust until after Paula Fowler went into attorney Pruitt Hamm’s office for a divorce and came as a guardian of Lin O’Dell, and only after attorney Pruitt Hamm made phone calls to an attorney from Idaho named Pamela Massey. An attorney hired by Lin O’Dell to help siphon elderly and vulnerable clients trust accounts through nursing homes in Spokane and drug rehab centers in Idaho.

Attorney Pamela Massey and Lin O’Dell were contacted for comment. As of today, both have refused.

According to attorney Pruitt Hamm’s attorney bills in the Fowler matter; no sooner did Paula Fowler leave Pruitt’s office seeking a divorce, Pruitt Hamm was on the phone with Idaho attorney Pamela Massey ( an Idaho attorney who represents Lin O’Dell).  Once Pruitt Hamm learned that Paula Fowler was worth well over $5,000,000.00, he conspired with attorney Lin O’Dell and Pamela Massey to steal from a vulnerable adult.

Over the last three years, attorneys Lin O’Dell and Pamela Massey have stolen over $3,000,000.00 + from Paula Fowler, but not without the assistance of the Washington State Bar lead counsel Linda Eide.


Lin O’Dell forging documents, and has stolen over $3,000,000.00 +, but Lin O’Dell did not act alone

Court records from Pamela Massey’s Office in Idaho confirm that Lin O’Dell depleted non-Washington resident Paula Fowler’s trust accounts ( known as a Shank Trust, Wells Fargo, Idaho) to provide ” legal fees, at legal representation.”

There’s only problem for attorney Lin O’Dell, she is not an Idaho attorney.  Our counsel said ” a non attorney cannot provide legal representation without a license.”

From records we retrieved from Stevens County Court, in December 2011, the Shank Trust had $3,900,000.00 plus dollars in the account with no forensic accounting ever given to Ms. Fowler or the Court, even though Lin O’Dell was ORDERED to provide such documents to the Court by. A court order  Ms. O’Dell continues to thumb her nose at, while she continues to steal from Ms. Fowler but not without the assistance of the Washington State Bar lead counsel Linda Eide.


Lin O’Dell stealing Ms. Fowler’s assets, using convicted killer to intimidate Ms. Fowler

Abusive email 2

As we correctly stated, attorney Lin O’Dell is crossing state lines, from Washington to Idaho, using her convicted killer Mark Plivilech to steal and threaten vulnerable clients.

As the alleged “trustee” Lin O’Dell is supposed to be paying Paula Fowler’s bills, housing, car, and food.

Abusive Email 4

For nearly four months in early 2014, Lin O’Dell refused to provide basic shelter for Ms. Fowler ( as the Shank Trust mandates) leaving Ms. Fowler living in a truck at a truck stop.

Imagine your parents leave you a $5,000,000.00 trust, and the alleged trustee refuses to provide you shelter, leaving you homeless, because several outstanding members of the Washington State Bar forged documents and stole millions, what would you do?

File WSBA complaints for fraud and theft?  And that’s exactly what Paula Fowler did, and who received that WSBA complaints was WSBA lead counsel Linda Eide.  Ms. Eide’s criminal conduct as exposed by attorney Robert Grunstein was exposed in his book ” Vendetta” and will be discussed in detail in another investigative blog coming soon.

Linda Eide’s criminal conduct against the Gold Bar Reporter will be discussed at length in my book ” No sunshine where the cockroaches roam” in my last chapter ( still being written) ” Reforming the Washington State Bar, taking politics out of the practice of law.”



Judge Patrick Monasmith, a man with integrity, orders court officer Joseph Valente to investigate attorney Lin O’Dell

Just to make sure our readers understand fully what’s going on here, see above. Lin O’Dell tells the Court that Paula Fowler needs a guardian because she has an abusive ex-husband who controls her, but then writes a check to attorney Clark Peterson ( now Judge Clark Peterson, Idaho),  to defend Ms. Fowler’s soon to be ex-husband in a criminal felony vulnerable adult charge filed in Idaho for abusing Paula Fowler’s ( nee Shank) mother Norma Shank.

But hold onto your seats because it’s much better – if you can believe it !

Not only did attorney Lin O’Dell write a check to Ms. Fowler’s soon to be ex-husband’s private attorney to defend against criminal felony charges for elder abuse of Ms. Fowler’s mother ( the one who started the 5 Million dollar trust for Paula Fowler also known as Shank Trust ), but Lin O’Dell uses Norma Shank’s trust account to write a $5000.00 check to attorney Clark Peterson, Idaho, and $250.00 to attorney Dick Sayre ( for a consultation, pretty harmless on Sayre’s and Peterson’s part more likely than not) to defend the man who was just charged with felony elderly abuse.

We’re not sure about our readers, but we’re just not sure how paying an Idaho attorney to defend against elder abuse of Paula Fowler’s mother, Norma Shank, benefited the Norma Shank Trust.  But if our readers have any idea, please email those to us at GoldBarReporter@Comcast.net

Imagine someone steals from you and then having the court order you to pay for the defendant’s criminal defense counsel. With no surprise this is exactly what attorney Lin O’Dell did in this matter.


Lin O’Dell, a criminal with a license to steal, a stellar example in favor of reforming the WSBA

Ex-Husbands Statement

The fact that Lin O’Dell and killer Mark Plivilech were using a USPS Post Office Box in Duvall Washington to accept financial pay offs from Snohomish County’s bum who killed 43 Oso residents, John E. Pennington, and his convicted bank frauding wife Crystal Hill ( nee Berg, bank fraud 2005), is coming to a US Federal Court soon.   

Thank you retired USPS Postmaster, you’re a fine lady


Coming soon, more public records on corrupt cops, Batiot and Coblantz

corrupt cops from City of Shoreline, Cary Coblantz, and Duvall cop, Lori Batiot, caught via public records (RCW 42.56) in a RICO scandal

This report is just the tip of iceberg, because over the last four weeks we’ve had three Washington State Whistleblowers give us mounds of evidence documenting that Snohomish County Prosecutors and corrupt cops, one from City of Shoreline and other from the City of Duvall, are involved in the largest RICO scandal in Washington State’s history.
