UPDATE: In April 2015, the Gold Bar Reporter reviewed email communication from the City of Duvall documenting that Michael Kenyon’s Office was giving a non-city employee resident John E Pennington legal advice. The Reporter requested these records after records between corrupt Duvall police officer Lori Batiot documented racketeering and gross 1983 civil rights violations. Lori Batiot took predicate acts on behalf of John and Crystal Hill Pennington trying to trump criminal charges on the Gold Bar Reporter, because Ms. Batiot was concerned that her very personal relationship with the Penningtons would become public. What happened next should never happen to any news reporter, ever, for simply reporting the news on corrupt acts of public officials.
Since 2009, Lori Batiot, Crystal Hill Pennington and John E. Pennington ( The Enterprise) have made at least 8 attempts to have the Gold Bar Reporters charged with crimes for simply reporting on their criminal conduct. All are public officials misusing federal and state monies, but they didn’t do it alone. The Enterprise were given full access to government resources, and staff, specifically Snohomish County Prosecutors Sean Reay, Sara Di Vittorio, Miquel Tempski, and Mark Roe, City of Redmond Officers, King County Sheriff’s Officer Cary Coblantz, and City of Duvall public officials including Kenyon Disend’s legal staff, and Shelly Rowe to further the Enterprise’s efforts to trump up criminal charges on the Gold Bar Reporter for simply reporting on their corrupt acts.
As of October 23, 2016, four judges have dismissed Batiot, and Crystal Hill and John E Pennington attempts to racket up criminal charges on the Gold Bar Reporter. A source tipped us off last week that immediately following a Pierce County Judge’s favorable ruling for the Gold Bar Reporter- stanch respect for the First Amendment- Crystal Hill, John Pennington and Lori Batiot are once again trying to trump up criminal charges on the Gold Bar Reporter, and with no surprise once again trying to drag yet another Redmond City Official into their little RICO.
When I first reported on this story I had no idea on how deep the City of Redmond’s involvement was in assisting John E. Pennington with fraudulently closing out his criminal assault case, until now.
In 2009, when John E. Pennington filed a template motion dismissing his criminal assault of a 3rd trimester pregnant woman, he had the assistance of a Redmond District Court Prosecutor , clerk inside Redmond District Court and Kenyon Disend. This is also during the twelve year reign of King County Deputy Prosecutor Maggie Nave ( “The Fixer”) who was then the Chair of Distrcit Court Criminal Unit for King County District system. Nave was reprimanded in 2011, by King County Deputy Prosecutor Chief of Criminal Division Mark Larsen who seized 117 case files backing back as far as 1999 from her office. Mr Larsen stated Nave’s was guilty of legal malpractice- an understatement for those maliciously prosecuted as result. Once the Gold Bar Reporter started reporting on Ms. Nave, she resigned.
Had not been for the political deal John Pennington and Aaron Reardon made with Michael Kenyon ( in exchange for fixing cases in Snohomish County) to throw the criminal case against John E. Pennington, he would be behind bars where he belongs, and his countless victims would be out of harm’s way. Possibility that 43 people in Oso Washington wouldn’t have suffocated to death.
Instead Prosecutor Mark Roe, Duvall’s corrupt officials, and the City of Redmond decided to assist a wife/child abuser in exchange for political favors. ” If anyone really understood that no one even likes John Pennington no one would have lifted a finger on behalf of the Enterprise.”
If someone asked me to committ a crime, I’d tell them to kiss my ass and then file a criminal complaint. Sadly not one public official reported their criminal conduct.
Sadly, Kenyon Disend, Lori Batiot, the City of Duvall, the City of Gold Bar, Joe Beavers, Crystal Hill Pennington, Diana Rose ( who assisted Pennington with tampering with public records ) , Ron Fejfar, all took predicate acts and all are being sued for RICO with depositions against Batiot, Crystal Hill, City of Duvall and Joe Beavers beginning this week.
After Crystal Hill and Lori Batiot were notified of court depositions, a source tipped us off that we might ask for records from the City of Duvall and City of Redmond. Of course . . . once we have more, an update will follow.
One thing I am thankful for is that the Washington State Bar Association will finally be exposed as the criminal organization it is, and the wrongfully accused may find effective assistance of counsel. Counsel not threatene by the criminals who are illegally serving in a duel role as Bar disciplinary member and a statement/county prosecutor even though RCW prohibits it.
Crystal Hill Pennington’s deposition is Dec6, 2016, but in Joe Beavers’s deposition he admitted he conspired to harm the Gold Bar Reporter and was writing and publishing articles on the Sky Valley Chronicle while he was a Gold Bar public official.
John Pennington is being sued for racketeering and a new law suit against Gold Bar Reporter is coming next, but this time out of state.
“Attorney Michael Kenyon’s Dirty Bag of Secrets, Part II “
UPDATE: Former Mayor Joe Beavers brags to former Gold Bar council member that he has Judges inside Snohomish County Superior Court in his pocket. Implying that the fix is in.
Two weeks ago we reported that we are in the process of exposing the largest RICO scandal in Washington State’s history and it involves a Snohomish County political bum who caused thousands of deaths in the Hurricane Katrina Debacle and 44 deaths in Oso Washington mudslides, John Pennington, and an attorney/owner of the largest municipal law firm in Washington State, Michael Kenyon.
I’d like our readers to know that we have made several attempts to contact Michael Kenyon and John Pennington, both have refused comment.
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 flunking out of Vanderbilt College in Tennessee, John Pennington moved to a small suburban city just outside of San Diego California.
While in the San Diego are, John Pennington meets his new victim, who believe he legally married, so are calling her ex-wife # 1.
Two years later, John Pennington fled from Southern California, again heading home to Nashville, only after two small boys made allegations of sexual abuse against him while on a church camping trip.
While in Tennessee, John Pennington made an unsuccessful run for an open Republican State Rep. After a landslide loss for John Pennington, he again headed west. This time in Oregon, Pennington meets his next victim. Mr. Pennington plead guilty to criminal harassment after he hospitalized his finance in Oregon. As a result, John Pennington fled from Oregon to Vancouver Washington. While in Vancouver 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. According to Cowlitz County Sheriff’s Office, John Pennington became one of two prime suspects for the following reasons: (1) Pennington operated a coffee delivery route within six blocks of where the child was dumped; (2) he drove the same car; (3) Pennington was in the area at the time of the child rape; (4) Pennington’s picture from 1992 is almost a complete match to the child and witness’s sketch drawing of the pedophile; and (5) Pennington relentlessly convinced his ex-wife to call the police attempting to divert attention away from himself and onto another man.
Unfortunately for the 5 year child, John Pennington meets a Kelso Washington city attorney named Michael Kenyon.
According to sources close to John Pennington he is also an abuser of prescription pills, and was detained at the US Mexico for having narcotics ( non-prescription pain pills) on his person while coming back into the US. Pennington has never denied this allegation.
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 . From pushing her down a flight of stairs as well as constant physical abuse, 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.
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.
NOW COMES, Michael Kenyon a hater of open government, and the attorney responsible for hiding public records involving former Gold Bar Mayors Colleen Hawkins, Crystal Hill, and Joe Beavers RICO crimes. But how and why Michael Kenyon got involved in the City of Gold Bar’s debacle was simple: Michael Kenyon assisted John Pennington is covering up that Pennington is one of only two men labeled by the Cowlitz County sheriff’s Office as the prime suspect in the child rape case. A case that Michael Kenyon as the City of Kelso attorney would have been involved in and knew about in 1993.
Hence why Michael Kenyon is bent over backwards to assist John Pennington escape criminal prosecution. according to one source John Pennington brags to others that he has the protection of a “little RICO” gang from Snohomish County. We are confident to report that attorney Michael Kenyon, Prosecutor Mark Roe, Seth Fine and Sean Reay are also members of the “little RICO gang.”
We promise our readers that we will continue to report on anyone who aids a pedophile, directly or indirectly.
Michael Kenyon’s hiding of public records in violation of RCW 42.56 is well documented through the case involving local Gold Bar residents Joan and Robert Amen.
Public records we received document that attorney Michael Kenyon made an illegal agreement with the City of Sammamish to hide Hawkins email communication, and then refused to release public records claiming that he no longer had them. According to Washington State Attorney General Nancy Krier such agreements are not permissible under the Public Records Act. A fact that we are not sure that she shared with Kenyon. In 2008 one of Kenyon Disend’s lawyers ( Special Prosecutor) managed to quash John Pennington’s domestic violence charges. Soon thereafter, the Law Firm of Kenyon Disend received two lucrative contracts, one with the City of Duvall and the other with the City of Gold Bar.
Then in 2011, Kenyon Disend’s junior attorney, Ann Marie Soto, received an email from John Pennington via Snohomish County computers demanding that Kenyon Disend redact police reports involving John Pennington’s that we requested under RCW 42.56. We sought the advice of an expert in records issues who is of the opinion that Kenyon Disend’s redaction of police reports was not permissible under the Public Records Act.
Then a source close to ex # 2 ( or # 3 depending on what public records you believe as it relates to Pennington’s aliases) provided us with thousands of records relating to John Pennington, and those records included Pennington’s email communication with Duvall’s Mayor about how to get Pennington’s soon to be ex-wife Anne Laughlin off the City Council.
In 2009, Pennington then used Aaron Reardon’s connection to the Seattle Times reporter ( who then became Reardon’s aide) to post a story about Anne Laughlin, pretty much the same way he did to Gold Bar Reporters in February 2012. Former Seattle Times reporter Emily Heffner was contacted for comment but all she would say is ” you need to move because they are coming after you.” She never did state who “they” were, but as we stated to Ms. Heffner before, “We have only one live to give and it shall be for the betterment of our society as a whole.”
As of today, Attorney Michael Kenyon and Ann Marie Soto have bilked the taxpayers of Gold Bar over $920,000.00 hiding former Mayor Crystal Hill’s public records ( emails) documenting that she was practicing law without a license, and John Pennington making racist comments about President Obama and running illegal ACCESS background checks in violation of RCW 10.97.
The bigger question that Michael Kenyon refused to answer was what he gained for quashing John Pennington’s criminal charges for beating up his pregnant wife Anne, hiding John Pennington’s racist comments and his illegal background checks. Pennington has countless child abuse and spousal abuse complaints against him; Mr. Pennington is a racist according to people close to him he said ” I only support abortion when a white woman is raped by a black man” Just like Hitler, John E. Pennington has a real disdain for minorities
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 should be sharing a prison cell together and we intend to make that happen even it takes me another 30 years.
Both attorney Michael Kenyon and Snohomish County’s number political welfare recipient are being sued under RICO.
A copy of the RICO is posted online see http://twitdoc.com/view.asp?id=172712&sid=3P9K&ext=PDF&lcl=RICO-files.pdf&usr=Sunshine2015K&doc=252796214&key=key-vCgcyry8MG3PdTevxTaE
