Washington State Supreme Court threatening reformists, violating the public trust

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

Anyone who been investigating massive racketeering and corruption in Washington State knows one thing, we have a serious problem that at one time in history ( 1960s through 1980s) our courts were honorable and would correct wrongs. Not so much any more. There is nothing honorable about our judiciary threatening lawyers who care about protecting the rights of Washingtonians. 

But that’s just what the Washington State Supreme Court just did. 

Last week, the Supreme Court issued an exparte ORDER threatening the Washington State Board of Governors (BOG) with contempt/disbarment if the BOG continued to demand that the  Washington State Bar Association (WSBA) Directors stay out of the legislative function of the WSBA BOG. After all, the WSBA is an “association” just like the AAA or American Medical Association.

Last year, the WSBA BOG was taken over by “reformists” who are demanding reform.  This immediately following the arrest of WSBA President Robyn Haynes for theft in Spokane County and after the Gold Bar Reporter’s report on WSBA Guardian scammer and WSBA Hearing Officer Lin O’Dell’s racketeering offenses against Washingtonians was exposed in the following article:

License to steal” with the assistance of the Washington State Bar and Washington State Guardian Board

 

Over the last twenty years, the Washington State Bar Association has broomed over twenty complaints against Washington State guardian scammer and Washington State Bar Hearing Officer Lin O’Dell.

Lin O’Dell met and teamed up with a convicted killer, Mark Plivilech, while working as a nurse with Walla Walla Prison inmates in 1990.

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 created several companies to launder clients’ trust monies.

Guardianship Letter accepting complaints billing 2

Instead of investigating complaints filed against attorney Lin O’Dell for embezzlement, the Washington State Bar Association, Washington Attorney General’s Office, Washington State Guardian Board, and at least two Washington State’s Governors’ turned a blind eye, thus allowing Lin O’Dell and Mark Plivilech’s rein of terror and racketeering crimes against Washington elderly residents to continued for over twenty years with no accountability.

Why is simple: the Washington State Bar Association refused to investigate complaints filed against Lin O’Dell. Washington State Bar Disciplinary Council Linda Eide, Doug Ende and Julie Shankland were all guardian scammers themselves while in private practice.

The Gold Bar Reporter smells a pay off system….

No accountability until Lin O’Dell decided to violate the Gold Bar Reporter’s civil rights, fabricate evidence, lie on official Washington State Bar filings, and after being caught accepting bribes from John E Pennington ( man fired from Snohomish County Emergency Management after he was caught stalking, criminally harassing Gold Bar Reporter right from Snohomish County Department of Emergency Management offices).  Mark Plivilech who lives in Spokane set up a USPS Box # 70 in Duvall Washington for purposes of picking up money drops from the Penningtons’ to fix a case against the Gold Bar Reporter’s news reports on corruption.

What should for our readers is that attorney Lin O’Dell was handpicked as a Washington State Bar Hearing Officer by her co-conspirator and business associate attorney Joseph Nappi Jr ( another attorney associated with the Washington State Bar and Guardian Scam in Spokane County). Joseph Nappi Jr has his own “little RICO” scam of depleting O’Dell’s clients trust accounts after O’Dell’s clients die.

John E. Pennington, Lin O’Dell, Mark Plivilech, and Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg) are being sued for racketeering, and soon forgery and fraud.

Instead of prosecuting attorney Lin O’Dell for stealing, embezzling client funds, and money laundering, the Washington State Guardian Board allowed Lin O’Dell to resign, but only after she was caught stealing, perjury, and embezzling million of dollars from Ms. Fowler’s trust accounts.

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


FireShot-Screen-Capture-015-Board-of-Governors-Biographies-webcache_googleusercontent_com_search_qcache_gUwwyQXP36AJ_www_wsba_org_About-WSBA

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.


 

A few weeks ago, the Gold Bar Reporter received a tip from an insider at the WSBA, confirming that the Washington State Supreme Court has been engaging in exparte communication with the WSBA Office of Disciplinary Counsel (WSBA ODC) Directors Paula Littlewood and Doug Ende.  With the WSBA reformists now in control of the WSBA BOG, demands were made ordering WSBA Director Paula Littlewood and Doug Ende to stop interfering with BOG’s legislative functions. Instead WSBA Director Paula Littlewood and Doug Ende went to Olympia, behind closed doors, and had an exparte meeting with the entire Washington State Supreme Court.  

Behind closed doors, and in violation of Washington State’s Open Meeting laws, the entire Washington State Supreme Court and WSBA Directors Paula Littlewood and Doug Ende met secretly and wrote an ORDER threatening the WSBA BOG with contempt charges if the WSBA BOG continues to demand reform. 

The WSBA BOG’s demanded that the WSBA ODC stop interfering with the WSBA BOG’s functions. WSBA BOG Reformists are seeking WSBA Executive Directors Littlewood and Doug Ende’s immediate termination, and bylaw amendments passed that give power back to the Board of Governors and the Sections.  The insider  said  reforms must include” the right of referendum preserved, and available for license fee issues.  So,  that is clearly reform.  I think they can be persuaded to take discipline out of political control from the Executive Director.” Paula Littlewood is the Executive Director for the WSBA. 


My readers may recall that the WSBA Practice of Law Board resigned in late 2015, citing gross violations by the Washington State Supreme Court conspiring with WSBA Directors of Sherman Anti Trust violations, creating a monopoly over delivery of legal services in Washington State.  

 

Board members blast Washington State Bar, resignations spread like wild flowers

Placing profits over people”

Washington state’s Practice of Law Board (POLB) is virtually defunct because of massive resignations and in fighting feuds with the bar association’s leaders.

No, it cannot be the Washington State Bar’s corrupt elite few Board members trying to control the honest fight for justice Boards and its members?  Shocking!


Attorney Scott Smith writes a letter basically agreeing with the Gold Bar Reporters federal Racketeering complaint; Washington State Bar Board members are threatening members who disagree, all in an effort to dominate the Washington State Bar 

879px-San_Carlos_wildflowers,_2010

On November 8, 2015, former POLB board members released an 11-page letter (PDF) accusing the executive director of the state bar of pursuing “a campaign to eliminate the Practice of Law Board (POLB) citing disgust over how to bridge the access-to-justice gap in the state.

The 11 page letter to the Supreme Court has validity because we found records from the City of Gold Bar proving beyond any shadow of a doubt that Gold Bar’s former Mayor Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg, bank fraud 2005) was writing motions, briefs, and pleadings for two former Snohomish County Dept. of Emergency Management employees, we reported Ms. Hill Pennington to the Bar, but lead counsel Linda Eide (caught destroying evidence in several proceedings) and Doug Ende allowed Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg, bank fraud) to continue harming the public with her criminal conduct ( practice of law without a license).

If our story on the King County ( which we believe extends to every county in this state is not enough to start removing judges and lawyers from office, I’m not sure what is) animal abuse scam, a racketeering enterprise designed to fleece the taxpayers of Washington State for a small few to line their pockets with the gold of others, isn’t enough to push reforms inside the Washington State Bar, I believe its time to start a new Reformed Washington State Bar.

Something hundreds of us reformist already started ( Rwsba.org coming soon).


The letter signed by several members of the POLB, including ex-chairman Scott Smith stated there has been countless clashes between the POLB, and the Bar’s Director over the POLB’s role in regulating the unauthorized practice of law.

“The treatment of the practice of law board over the last three years is a textbook study on how to discourage and disempower a board comprised of volunteers: oppose their mission; cut their budget; withhold meaningful staff support; personally attack and seek to oust the volunteers who disagree with you; conduct secret meetings to discuss the future of the group without informing its volunteer members or inviting them to participate; dismiss or reject out of hand the volunteers’ concerns; and replace the group’s members and leadership team,” the resigning board members wrote. “There is no surer way to demoralize a group of volunteers and undermine their good intentions.”

The POLB was set up as an independent entity under the Washington State Supreme Court, but partly funded by the state bar.  Although it as structured so that POLB would not be unduly influenced by the rest of the bar association,  the POLB letters of resignation stated the Bar’s Director has undermined and even threatened the POLB with elimination on multiple occasions.

Threats that we believe amount to Racketeering, extortion, bribery, and threats against persons property interest.  In December 2014, the United States Supreme Court held in FTC v North Carolina Board of Dental Examiners that if the supervising branch ( in this case the Supreme Court) is not actively supervising its Board members, then they are subject to lawsuits, with no immunity, under Sherman Anti-Trust.  see http://www.scotusblog.com/case-files/cases/north-carolina-board-of-dental-examiners-v-federal-trade-commission/

Several Racketeering and Anti-Trust law suits have been filed against the Washington State Bar in U.S. Federal Court, only after public records confirm that the Washington State Bar’s Directors, counsel, and Board members are guilty of extortion, threats, and bribery.

The POLB’s resignation letter supports that the Bar is being dominated by Board members who are threatening members who have a difference of opinions. As attorney Smith claims ” to dominate  and control the Boards.”


“The Washington State Bar Association has a long record of opposing efforts that threaten to undermine its monopoly on the delivery of legal services,” the resigning board members wrote. The 13-person POLB is now down to four as a result of resignations.

The Washington State Bar Association said that the letter contained “significant misinterpretations and misunderstandings.” The letter also maintained that the POLB, when reinstated, was instructed to focus on consumer protection and explore new ways for non-lawyers to provide legal and law-related services and to cease its enforcement activities.

“Access to justice and the protection of the public are unwavering commitments shared by the Washington Supreme Court and the Washington State Bar Association,” Robin Haynes, president-elect of the Washington State Bar Association.  Ms. Haynes was just elected in June 2015.

POLB disgusted members also noted that the WSBA Board of Governors voted unanimously to eliminate the POLB in May 2012, a month before the Washington Supreme Court formally adopted the LLLT rule. The supreme court voted to reinstate the POLB in June.

POLB chairman Smith says “The composition of board is critical,” Smith said. “If you can control who is on the board, then you can control the outcome. [Chief Justice Madsen] rejected our opinions on who should serve on the board, and the court was putting off having a conversation with us about our concerns. As a volunteer board, it’s pretty hard to get a whole lot done if we don’t have support.”

“If the board is no longer independent and becomes a rubber stamp for the state bar, then it’ll prevent any meaningful reforms to solving the access-to-justice gap,” Smith said.


truth_is_the_new_hate_speech

Bravo to attorney Scott Smith for having the courage to stand up for Justice.  Your letter  of resignation will prove very helpful in my Racketeering, ADA, and Sherman Anti-Trust suit against the thugs inside the Office of Disciplinary Counsel.

In early 2018, the Gold Bar Reporter exposed Snohomish County Public Defender Association documenting that Snohomish County Public Defender and the County Prosecutors are fixing criminal cases.

Snohomish County Washington, fixing cases to ensure convictions

"Fighting corruption is not just good governance. Its self-defense. It's patriotism." Joe Biden


Hitler Sign

Nazi Germany, “alive and well inside Washington State” 

Nazi law and order was predicated on the idea that all individuals shall be subordinate to the state. Adolf Hitler enacted strict laws prohibiting political opposition, and free speech. It was Hitler who decided what societal norms were, and it was he who outlawed any behavior he deemed as ‘anti-social behaviors’’, including alcoholism, drug addiction, begging, promiscuity, political dissent, prostitution and homosexuality.


Snohomish County Defenders Association, throwing cases gaining political favor

The Snohomish County Public Defenders Association clams to be a non-profit 501(3)(c).   It’s director is Vicki Norris, a partner at the law office of Anderson Hunter in Everett.  Ms. Norris is married to a Washington State Court of Appeals Division I Judge Robert Leach.  With no surprise, Robert Leach was also a partner at Anderson Hunter law firm in Everett.

Anderson Hunter law firm has one of the largest civil defense contracts with Snohomish County, its managing partner is G. Geoffrey Gibbs, a Pro Tem Snohomish County Commissioner, and a person who manages the financials ( 18 million annually) for the Washington State Bar Association.

So this means, Vicki Norris, is not only the Director of the Snohomish County Public Defenders Association, she is also a civil defense contractor to provide a legal defense when Snohomish County gets sued for malicious prosecution.

Imagine this.  You’re charged with a crime inside Snohomish County Washington. You’re poor and cannot afford a lawyer. Snohomish County refers you to a taxpayer funded public defender, whose director is Vicki Norris, a partner at the law firm of Anderson Hunter Snohomish County’s largest contractor providing civil defense.

So not only does the Snohomish County Public Defenders Association rely on government money for its existence, it’s Director, a managing partner, is also receiving money from the County to defend against lawsuits filed against the County for civil rights violations.

If that’s not bad enough, you also learn that Vicki Norris’s husband is a Court of Appeals Division One Judge, whose friends inside Court of Appeals Division One will influence your appeal, whether criminal or civil.

a dishonest scheme; a fraud, throwing cases for political and financial favors are just a few words that come to mind, when I think of Snohomish County Public Defenders Association.


First Step to Throwing a Case, Deal or No Deal

When I think of our criminal justice system, I think of a game show, Deal or No Deal. It’s a television game show that revolves around the opening of a set of numbered briefcases, each of which contains a different prize (cash or otherwise). The contents (i.e. $$ amount) of all of the cases are known at the start of the game, but the specific location of any prize is unknown. The contestant claims (or is assigned) a case to begin the game. The case’s value is not revealed until the conclusion of the game.  Technically, the game is stacked against the player ( the accused).

mtgrsfordummiesa2016

The analogy here is simple; when the Snohomish County Public Defenders Association and its managing directors’ hold the largest contracts with Snohomish County justice is perverted, and cases are thrown as political favors, and financial rewards ( contracts), resulting in justice being perverted in favor of the almighty dollar.

One such case thrower is attorney and Snohomish County Public Defender Jason Schwarz.


 

Former Washington Post Watergate reporter Bob Woodward was right, ” follow the money.”


 

In the middle of 2016, I began investigating a simple criminal misdemeanor case involving a seventy-year old petite nurse, who is alleged to have assaulted a neighbor.  The neighbor stands almost six feet tall, weighs well over two-hundred fifty pounds, and just happens to be the tenant of Anderson Hunter’s managing partner, G. Geoffrey Gibbs, who if you remember is also a Snohomish County Commissioner.

In Judge Downes’s warped sense of justice, exercising your legal right to challenge corruption is worthy of a $70,000 SLAPP fine, especially when doing so involves suing his good friend and County commissioner G. Geoffrey Gibbs.

In 2011, G. Geoffrey Gibbs was being sued by the seventy year old nurse for infringing on her property.  At the same time, Gibbs’s tenant who lives next door to the nurse alleges that she was assaulted by the nurse.

First point of order, the alleged victim goes to court for restraining order. DENIED. So when the restraining order didn’t work, G. Geoffrey Gibbs sends an email to Everett city attorney and his personal golf buddy Michael Fisher and says ” charge her anyways so she will have to expend a large retainer…”

Imagine, your claiming you’re a victim of crime, you go to court seeking a restraining order, the judge denies your request, basically stating there’s nothing here. Then, your landlord, who just happens to be a county commissioner write to the Prosecutor, who happens to be his golf buddy, and you’re then charged with assault. It’s now six years later, and her case is still pending.

What caught my attention about this case was a just two years out of law school Snohomish County Public Defender Jason Schwarz was acting as a ” Pro Tem Judge.”

As an investigative journalist with a Juris Doctorate degree here in Washington State, I remember saying ‘what makes a recent law school graduate qualified to serve as a judge?”

US House of Representative House Speaker Tip O’Neil once said ” all politics is local.”  This famous quote leads me to believe what US House Speaker Tip O’Neil meant was all things in our lives are affected by local politics.  But instead of paying attention to local politics, which is the hot bed for corruption, our duopoly, Democrats v Republicans, or our so called democracy  have Americans fighting over abortion, welfare, and guns.

Reporter Bob Woodward came up with an easy solution to uncovering corruption, “Follow the money.”  Under Woodward’s general principles  of ” follow the money”, corruption equates to money, political influence in exchange for political favors, this here in Snohomish County equates to fixing cases to gain a financial benefit.

After watching Everett Municipal Court maliciously prosecute a 70 year old nurse with no prior criminal history, I began investigating Snohomish County Public Defender Jason Schwarz for corruption.

Sadly, I write in remembrance of my Constitutional law and ethics Professor who said ” Our criminal justice is failing. Anne, I know you’re going to instigate change where change is needed ( boy was that an understatement). This generation cares nothing about the rights of the accused…” At the time, I had just completed a Juris Doctorate degree and had no idea what he meant, but thanks to attorney Jason Schwarz, I do now.


 

Jason

Snohomish County Public Defender Jason Schwarz “the biggest lawyer looser” 

 

For Snohomish County Defendant Jerry Bogart, Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe’s Office failed to disclose to Jerry Bogart that Snohomish County Sheriff’s investigator David Fontenot is a known Brady Cop guilty of excess of force and terminated as a result.

But this story didn’t end here.  In 2016, at the bequest of another blogger who couldn’t attend another trial, Brady Cop David Fontenot was the investigator on another case involving a mother of five, a small business owner, with no prior criminal history, named Lori Shavlik.

Soon after hearing of Ms. Shavlik, I started sifting through her files, learning quickly that Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office not only failed ( really hid) to disclose information it had in its possession as it relates to Brady Cop David Fontenot,  he was also a witness against her and allowed to assist the Snohomish County Prosecutor during trial.  This in front the jury; in criminal cases all witnesses are supposed to be sequestered.

Thankfully for Ms. Shavlik a jury acquitted her of all charges, seeing through the countless fabricated evidence and false testimony presented by Brady Cop David Fontenot in her case.

Snohomish County Prosecutors’ ignore the constitutional rights of defendants, spit on Brady v Maryland like its a piece of toilet paper, and have rigged Snohomish County’s criminal justice system against defendants by contracting with one law firm, claiming falsely that Snohomish County Public Defenders’ Association is not a public agency and its managing partners from Anderson Hunter, for the delivery of legal services.

This conduct reeks of Sherman Anti-Trust issues, another topic for another day. However, public defender and Washington State attorney Jason Schwarz is team player inside what I consider to be gross Sherman Anti-trust violations and a racketeering scheme, fixing cases to ensure convictions.


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

In 2016, the Honorable Justice Alex Kozinski held in the Joshua Frost case, said King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office violated a rule requiring the disclosure of information material to the case “by willfully withholding evidence of Shaw’s domestic-violence plea deal and permitting Shaw to lie on the stand.”

Justice Kozinski said the prosecution’s tactic were deliberate, and not an oversight. The County Prosecutor’s public records officer Kelli Williams kept Shaw’s signed plea agreements secret until two days after Frost was convicted and the office stonewalled in providing Frost this information when he doggedly requested it.

But the truth is, King County’s withholding of evidence to ensure conviction is governed by Association of Washington Cities (AWC).   AWC insures almost all public defenders, counties, cities, and its employees here in Washington State.

A few weeks ago attorney Jeffrey S. Myers, said ” We cannot settle this suit because Anne Block requested records and would benefit financially.  We will not let her win.”  Jeff  S. Myers, an attorney with Lyman, Daniel, Kamerrer, and Bogdanovich, is a contractor for AWC, located in Tumwater Washington.

Snohomish County and its contractors such as Snohomish County Public Defenders Association are all members of AWC.

So imagine, not only are you using a public defender whose managing director is a managing partner in Snohomish County’s largest civil defender law firm of Anderson Hunter, and Snohomish County government are insured through AWC.


Throwing cases, AWC style 

080372p06055w

The hand shaking brings me back to attorney and Snohomish County Public Defender Jason Schwarz throwing the Jerry Bogart case in exchange for political influence, and government contracts.  A few months ago, an objective observer witnessed Jason Schwarz bragging to another person how after the Bogart case he was setting up his own private practice.  One source claims that Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office as a reward plans to divert public defense monies his way, because Schwarz helped the Prosecution throw cases. Bogart was no different.

On November 22, 2017, I witnessed attorney Jason Schwarz put his client Jerry Bogart on the stand, having him testify against himself.  From any objective observer, it was clear that Jerry Bogart’s IQ is less than 75, thus in my opinion he was not able to fully comprehend the charges against him. Hence why Bogart was assigned counsel.

Looking through parts of the Bogart files, it’s clear that the Prosecutor did not have a case, unless Bogart admitted guilt.  As a result, Jason Schwarz needed to convince Bogart into testifying. However, Jason Schwartz and the Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office had one problem, Washlite Board member and local activist Lori Shavlik had been visiting inmates in the County jail trying to get the word out about the county’s undisclosed Brady Cop David Fontenot.

As an activist interested only in justice, Ms. Shavlik was handing over Brady Cop Fontenot’s criminal history files over to defense attorneys and inmate, while I was emailing judges informing them of Brady Cop Fontenot, placing Fontenot’s files into the public record forever. This resulted in Jason Schwarz and Snohomish County restricting inmates from having Lori Shavlik on its visitors list.

Obviously when defendants have information that leans in their favor, and withheld in violation of Our Supreme Court’s holding in Brady v Maryland, they tend to say wait a minute, not so fast. Jerry Bogart was no match for attorney Jason Schwarz, and since Lori Shavlik had been restricted from visiting inmates, Jerry Bogart was left to rely on attorney Jason Schwarz.

According to Jerry Bogart’s family, attorney Jason Schwarz relentlessly convinced him to testify against himself.  Why, because the Prosecutor’s Office had nothing, and Schwartz needs legal contracts to set up his private practice.

As one can imagine, Jerry Bogart, a man with a very low IQ, at the relentless urging of his defense attorney Jason Schwarz testified against himself.  On November 22, 2017, Ms. Shavlik and I popped into Judge Janice Ellis’s courtroom and witnessed, in part, Bogart’s testimony. if Jason Schwartz conduct wasn’t bad enough, I sat, in tears, watching Judge Janice Ellis standing up just aside the jury box, as Bogart testified, nodding her head up and down, in agreement, when the Prosecutor questioned Jerry Bogart.

 

What Lori Shavlik and I witnessed Judge Janice Ellis do was commit egregious judicial misconduct, ensuring conviction of man, with a low IQ, one has to wonder if he even understood or could fully grasped the charges that were lodged against him.

After public defender Jason Schwartz had Jerry Bogart testify against himself, the jury only spent two hours to issue a conviction on all counts. After the jury was released,  Lori Shavlik and I spoke to several jurors who told us ” Bogart testified against himself and gave the Prosecutor what they needed to convict”  another said ” Not sure why Bogart testified  because up until then the Prosecutor had nothing” and another said ” I don’t care.”

Judge Janice Ellis’s judicial misconduct will be forever imprinted in my head, and leaves me struggling to sleep at night.

Both Jason Schwartz and Judge Janice Ellis were contacted for comment. As of today both have refused comment.

 

I agree with the Honorable 9th Justice Alex Kozinski, we have a major problem inside our so called criminal justice system.


Polk County Florida school teacher Wendy Bradshaw Phd. said in pertinent part “I will not subject my child to this disordered system, and I can no longer, in good conscience, be a part of it myself. Please accept my resignation from Polk County Public Schools.”

Until the federal courts start enforcing 1983, RICO, and Sherman Anti – Trust violations, as illustrated herein, I shall not be part of this disordered system either.

In late November 2017, a Snohomish County insider called and said ” Ann Marie Soto and Shannon Ragonesi met with one of your witnesses in your federal suit.  In exchange for turning on you,  the witness wanted her criminal conviction and outstanding warrant for animal abuse to be dismissed…”

This bribery scheme in exchange for trying to get the Gold Bar Reporter charged with a crime. However, the witness had nothing of value to give them, but attorney Shannon Ragonesi and Ann Marie Soto did offer to help the witness try to get obtain a restraining order against the Gold Bar Reporter as they did with John Pennington and Crystal Hill Pennington ( read below).

What my readers should know is that the witness described above tried to extort the Gold Bar Reporter into giving her money and a car during the summer of 2017,  and lied time and time again about having cancer ( to obtain donations), as such, the Gold Bar Reporter cut all ties with her. A bigger problem for the co-conspirators is the witness has outstanding warrant for her arrest and is a convicted criminal, while the Gold Bar Reporter has no criminal history whatsoever.

Attorney Shannon Ragonesi has been sanctioned by judges all over the US for lying on court documents and filing frivolous motions. https://abovethelaw.com/2013/04/city-gets-benchslap-with-a-rolled-up-newspaper-over-dead-dog/

 

Ms. Ragonesi’s main contractor is the Association of Washington Cities ( a for profit company violating Sherman Anti-Trust laws), and she brags that she can fix any case because of her personal involvement with the WSBA and Judges like Jeffrey Ramsdalle, Judge Beth Andrus and Richard Okrent.

While in law school, I often ran into kids whose mommy and daddy spent hundreds of thousands of  dollars supporting them through law school.  Kids who had absolutely nothing of value to add to classes, and who would drop a class when the professor demanded Socratic in person, in class debate.

I remember thinking, ” oh boy, this kid next to me has no idea how to effectively communicate and has no common sense. As a nation, we’re in trouble.”


Kenyon Disend, crimes against Gold Bar taxpayers 

In 1992, Michael Kenyon, a Kelso Washington city attorney, met John E. Pennington, who according to a source, was introduced to him by Senator Jennifer Dunn. John E. Pennington, a transporting of narcotics, from Kelso to Bellingham ( where he met coffee Barista Lori Batiot, aka Hoffer/Harris), using his coffee supply company.  Transportation of narcotics usually comes with a price, aka criminal charges, so John E Pennington saw an uncontested Washington State House of Representative Seat, and decided to run.

At the time he ran for office, John E. Pennington was the only suspect in the rape and kidnapping and attempted murder of a five year girl in Cowlitz County.  In 2013, Cowlitz County lead detective Maurice Saxon said ” John Pennington is the man who raped that girl, and I have been following him since.”

From my past articles, noting that I have never been sued, my readers can piece together why Michael Kenyon and his associate Ann Marie Soto are so eager to protect John E. Pennington. So much so, that last week after requesting access to City of Duvall public records over five years ago, the City of Duvall finally released emails documenting that John E Pennington, a citizen of Duvall, was allowed to participate in whether or not a police report ( involving John Pennington) was in fact public under Washington State’s Public Records Act.

Subject: Pennington PRR: Simple Missed redaction

 Ms. Soto and Commander Hert.

 On the incident report stamped Jun 18 @2:02 (SGT Sanders) there is a single missed redaction.  Paragraph one of the narrative beginning with “On June 12 [redacted]…” has my name redacted throughout, HOWEVER there is a missed redaction where my name appears in full in the last paragraph. 

 My name is redacted under RCW 42.56.240 / 10.97.080 everywhere else, so this is a simple miss that needs to be corrected prior to any release to ensure consistency.

 Thank you.

Good afternoon, Ms. Soto.

 I am following up to see if you have received my time sensitive request below, regarding the single missed redaction I brought to your attention this morning, prior to the releasing of any documents to Ms. Block. 

 Of importance is that this particular document actually should fall under the domain of exemption of non-conviction criminal information and should not be released at all.  It is clearly part of a larger single file (City of Duvall CR007663D and CR007664D, dismissed with prejudice May 28, 2009) that is within that exemption and easily manages to identify me as part of that particular case that meets the exemption. 

 Irrespective, however, is that the document still contains my fully identifiable first and last name, where other sections of that document redact it, clearly violating privacy concerns under the RCW 42.56.240 and RCW 10.97.080 as identified elsewhere in the documents.

 Thank you!

 John E. Pennington


Mr. Pennington,

 

The City made the redaction you mentioned below prior to release to Ms. Block.  The redactions were made in compliance with the Public Records Act, the Criminal Records Privacy Act and Bainbridge Island Police Guild v. City of Puyallup and the City considers this matter now closed.  Thank you.

John Pennington’s criminal assault of a 3rd trimester pregnant Duvall City Council woman was NOT DISMISSED with prejudice because the Gold Bar Reporter obtained a copy of the May 29, 2009 audio from the hearing. The hearing confirmed my previous story; https://goldbarreporter.org/tag/sandra-meadowcraft/

Obvious questions like who tipped of non-City of Duvall employee John Pennington that the Gold Bar Reporter requested criminal reports involving him? Why would a City attorney violate the Public Records Act ( a felony in Washington State to conceal records) when in fact Our Supreme Court already held that police reports are not ” redactable” ?

Besides the fact that John E Pennington, a man diagnosed as a sociopath by King County Dr. Hedricks, John Pennington was being charged with violently assaulting a 3rd trimester pregnant Duvall Washington City Council-woman, is giving City of Gold Bar/Kenyon Disend attorney Ann Marie Soto and Duvall Police Chief Cary Hert demands to “redact” his name from police reports. Of even more interest to me is that the fact that the email’s metadata documents that John Pennington and Ann Marie have a ‘private chat room” with 20 other members, operating from the law firm of Kenyon Disend.

Soto

Ann Marie Soto is a contract attorney for the City of Gold Bar, employed by Kenyon Disend.  Keep in mind the above email string is related to a police report filed against John Pennington for domestic abuse in in Duvall, Washington.

In 2016, after having ample evidence that attorney Michael Kenyon is guilty of racketeering, and countless land scams inside North Bend and Cle Elm Washington, the Gold Bar Reporter published a story titled ” Michael Kenyon’s Dirty Bag of Secrets, Part II.”

Click – https://goldbarreporter.org/2015/04/04/attorney-michael-kenyons-dirty-bag-of-secrets-part-ii/

After attorney Ann Marie Soto was caught via public records conspiring to harm the Gold Bar Reporter, she was sued for racketeering, has been basically constructively demoted to a public records officer at the law firm of Kenyon Disend, and virtually unemployable( outside of Kenyon Disend) as a result.

Perhaps this is the main reason why Ms. Soto is trying to fight her way out of a paper bag by conspiring with convicted criminals on November 20, 2017.  Sadly, Ms. Soto placed her criminal racketeering crimes against the Gold Bar Reporter inside Gold Bar public records.


two is company, three’s a crowd

Trupin

As a feminist,  Rachel Turpin’s above picture is highly offensive, especially coming from a woman who works for Michael Kenyon ( Kenyon Disend), who has never promoted a female inside his office other than his first year law school graduate daughter.

From July 2016 to April 23, 2017, John Pennington also received criminal racketeering assistance from another Kenyon Disend’s attorney, Rachel Turpin. Public records from the City of Duvall document that attorney Rachel Turpin represented the City of Duvall in a law suit filed for access to public records.

When public money is being used, every single record received, obtained, reviewed, edited, created, sent is a public record.

In July 2016, John E Pennington ( terminated from FEMA and Snohomish County for conduct unbecoming of a public officer) and Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg, convicted of bank fraud 2000, 2005, North Carolina and Snohomish County, respectively) walked into Pierce County District Court attempting to obtain a prior restraint against the Gold Bar Reporter’s investigation and exposé on publication of their countless  racketeering crimes.

Remember, Rachel Turpin works for Kenyon Disend providing legal services to the City of Duvall.  When attempting to obtain a prior restraint against the Gold Bar Reporter, John Pennington made an attempt to serve the Gold Bar Reporter while the reporter was out of the country.  Unable to serve, John Pennington and Crystal Hill Pennington contacted Kenyon Disend/Duvall city attorney Rachel Turpin to lend a hand to the criminal racketeering Enterprise attempts to perfect service.

In early October 2016, the Gold Bar Reporter received court issued subpoenas to depose two Brady Cops ( law enforcement employees) from Duvall, Washington, Shelley Rowe and Lori Batiot.  Rachel Turpin decided the best way to handle this was to get the Gold Bar Reporter charged with violating a restraining order. However, she needed to get the Gold Bar Reporter served.

On October 12, 2016, Rachel  Turpin sent the Gold Bar Reporter an email asking if she would be wiling to hold deposition of Duvall officers inside Duvall Washington’s police department.  The Gold Bar Reporter set depositions on October 16, 2016.

In July of 2016, attorney Rachel Turpin wrote the Gold Bar Reporter stating ” I will no longer communicate with you via email only by USPS.”   So what changed in October 2016 that Rachel Turpin all of the sudden communicated via email?

It’s called racketeering and conspiracy. 

On October 26, 2016, John E Pennington walked into Pierce County District Court to obtain a prior restraint on free speech against the Gold Bar Reporter.  The Judge assigned was Pro Tem Judge Chen Weller.  Ms. Weller is a high ranking member with the Washington State Bar Association ( WSBA).  Public email from Snohomish County Washington confirm beyond any shadow of a doubt that lead WSBA Office of Disciplinary Counsel attorney Linda Eide was assisting John Pennington, with conspiring to harm the Gold Bar’s WSBA license.  As a result, the WSBA, Linda Eide, John and Crystal Hill Pennington are being sued for racketeering… a new suit is on its way for 2018.

Judge Weller was asked by Linda Eide to “pull one for the team and give John E Pennington and Crystal Hill Pennington a restraining order.”  On  October 26, 2016, Judge Chen Weller, at the bequest of WSBA lead attorney Linda Eide, obtained a forged court order ( see below) and issued a temporary restraining order against the Gold Bar Reporter.  Why, is something that I didn’t know until the Washington State Patrol  released public records.

On October 10, 2016, John Pennington forged a court order and managed to get his friend to put his forgery inside the NCIC, LlNYX and ACCESS databases weeks prior to obtaining Judge Chen Weller’s signature.  Once Snohomish County and Kenyon Disend became aware of John and Crystal Hill Pennington’s forgery scheme, the Enterprise requested and received the assistance of Peirce County Judge Chen Weller to sign the order, thus trying to cover up the fact that Penningtons’ forged court order was already placed inside NCIC weeks prior to Judge Chen Weller signed it. Racketeering.

The Gold Bar Reporter sued the Judge and Pierce County settled the suit and vacated Penningtons’ forged court order for fraud ( see below).

This brings me back to why all of the sudden Duvall city attorney Rachel Turpin was so desperate to get me to hold depositions inside the City of Duvall police station. Ms. Turpin knew that the Penningtons’ had already managed to get a Brady Cop to enter his forged court order into the NCIC, LlYNX, and ACCESS data bases on October 10, 2016.  Ms. Turpin’s goal was to get the Gold Bar Reporter charged with violating the forged restraining order, an order that until recently, the Gold Bar Reporter had no idea was placed into NCIC, ACCESS weeks prior to having a judge sign it.

John and Crystal Hill Pennington’s forgery was nicely outlined in my past reports below. Both John and Crystal Hill Pennington are being sued for racketeering.

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;
(iv) Obtain admission to an educational program in this state; or
(v) Gain a position in government with authority over another person, regardless of whether the person receives compensation for the position.
(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.

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.

 

 

 

 

 

Washington State Bar violating Washingtonians civil rights, sued again

Washington attorneys, Steve Eugster, Robert Caruso and Sara Ferguson join our fight against the Washington State Bar, exposed again for corruption, violating constitutional laws of Washingtonians.  But this time, on behalf of all Washingtonians, as the Washington State Bar trying to rewrite the Washington State Bar Act.

A close ally inside the Washington State Legislature was contacted and he would say is   “the Washington State Bar does not have the legal authority to regulate and dominate free market participants.”

Ms Kamb is one of those rare lawyers that in spite of the fear of attack, destruction and retribution still chose to try to do what was right for her clients in spite of the costs.

She has fought an almost 20 yr battle in taking on the wife of one of the WSBA board of Governor’s spouses. She has paid for it dearly, but I am going to let her tell her story in her own words with no edits. If you have an elderly relative, or are involved with any type of Guardianship or Trustee issues I would ask that you pay very close attention to the following letter.

She is currently in jail as far as I know, and I would ask that anyone who has been defended or protected by her over the last 2 decades please speak up for her. She is all alone now.

To the Editor of the Skagit Valley Herald and to the good people of Skagit County:

This is the letter that will never be printed in the Skagit Valley Herald.  The Herald has written its story.  It was not the story that I would have written of course.  It is not even close to the story I would have written, but it is the story you, the citizens of Skagit County read on its pages.

Here is my letter to the Editor of the Skagit Valley Herald:

Not at any time have I been personally contacted before you published any of your stories regarding me and no one from your paper was in the courtroom the only time I have spoken.  I gave my story in an allocution statement.  It is on the record.  Reporting partial accounts or only what is handed to you as the full story gives the public a false impression.  Investigating matters appears to be no one’s strong suit.  Not the Skagit Valley Herald, not the Mount Vernon Police and not the WSBA.  All of which have a duty to investigate before acting.  By far a more compelling story would be why your newspaper was given this particular story and why you & I were given no exculpatory information that was clearly available to all of the investigating parties yet went unreported.

I KNOW that I may hold my head high because I know that unlike some I have always dealt squarely and forthrightly in my dealings with other lawyers as well as members of the bench and of the public.  In doing so I stepped on toes.  I called it like I saw it and when I heard untruths I called a few liars, the was especially prevalent in Skagit County’s Ex-Parte Court.  When I saw repeatedly, guardianships being filed by the same people, lawyers who are & were tenant’s of the hospital lawyer, and as a creditor the hospital filing guardianships that gave preferential treatment to the hospital lawyer’s tenants and specifically requesting that his wife be appointed by the Court as the Guardian ad Litem, I spoke out.

When that same Court appointed GAL did an extremely poor job, I spoke to her privately requesting that she specifically contact a health provider about the cancellation   of a much needed wheelchair for the alleged incapacitated person.  This GAL very flippantly told me not to tell her how to do her job and that her investigation was complete.  Even though I had just informed her that the woman’s care center had contacted me and needed this device to care for her properly.  At the time the only oversight was the Court.  Because of the GAL’s refusal to make this single telephone call a woman was left without support of a much needed medical device until her death.

The GAL’s job is to investigate and make recommendations to the Court.  In refusing to investigate this necessary medical device’s cancellation she failed in her duty.

In zealously representing my client as well as being a mandatory reporter, I was required by law to point out this GAL’s errors and the only place to report it to was the Skagit Valley Probate Court.  After which I was threatened by the GAL’s husband, the  hospital lawyer, a now sitting member of the WSBA Board of Governors, who between clenched teeth told me “You’ll be sorry for this Rosemary”  after I did what was required of me by law to do.  Report the abuse of an elder in jeopardy.  By pointing out the gross failure of duty by the Court appointed GAL in her inept investigation the full abuse of the power and authority of the Washington State Bar Association disciplinary system was focused upon me for nearly ten years.

To this day I stand by my assessment.  Now that very same GAL/wife, who did the worse report I read in over twenty years of practice, is in charge of overseeing complaints against GAL’s in three counties.  THREE COUNTIES!  Her own reports were questionable, yet now she is in charge of overseeing all GALs.  How does that happen?  Connections?  They know who they are.  They know what they have done.

I’ve never filed a phony bar complaint.

I’ve never gone behind anyone’s back by claiming to give NOTICE when I hadn’t.  I’ve never began a lawsuit against someone and failed to serve them to get a default judgment against them.  I’ve never had a default judgment entered when I knew the person was nearby and obviously could be served easily if service was attempted.  I’ve always gone straight to the person and I’ve always given others the opportunity to be heard.

I’ve never given false testimony or had illegal Ex-Parte Orders entered.

Twice I’ve had issues with an order.  The first time I had a problem with an order it came concurrent with a racially inspired conflict over an incident involving one of the co-director’s pushing and slapping my then ten year old son at play practice.  My son was acting in a local theatre company’s version of Peter Pan.  When my son who very much enjoyed acting and being chosen for a part told me he did not want to return to practice I discovered what had happened and personally went to the Director to specifically find out what led to the incident witnessed by a number of actors.  At the time this person apologized profusely and responded with all the politically correct sentiments but my son and I never felt welcomed again by that particular theatre group and for good reason, from then on we were hazed repeatedly by members of the cast and crew, invited and uninvited to cast parties, and I was 86’ed from backstage even though the job I had signed up to do from the beginning was to be the back stage gofer.  Not all of the cast but a good deal of you jumped on that band wagon.  You know who you are and you know what you did, and we know it too.

This Director and been appointed fairly recently as a Court Commission and it was his clerk who caused the problem with the order.  I clearly heard this man’s clerk tell me he had signed the order I had left earlier when ex-parte was overflowing.  I came back in the early afternoon, at which time I was told that the Commissioner had signed the oder .  When I asked for the original the clerk told me she had filed it in the Probate box at the Court Clerk’s office.  I conformed my copies and sent out the order to a local bank for action to be taken.  Late afternoon my office received a call from the Court Clerk indicating we had an order to be picked up.  This is when I discovered the order had not been signed and I immediately called and notified all parties.   At the time I was told it was an honest mistake.  Instead it became courthouse gossip.  Gossip over whether I had properly apologized to this Commissioner’s Clerk (who had told me that he had signed an order that had not in fact been signed.)  It amazed me because of the obvious distortions of the story to cover the backside of the person at the court.  They didn’t think I’d hear what was being said, and what was being said was far from the truth.  Instead she chose to lie and repeat that lie to anyone who would listen to her tale.  A lie that placed my reputation for honesty in question.

The second incident came when this same Commissioner who had abused my son, and who had either instructed his clerk to say he had signed an order or whose clerk didn’t bother to ask him and then assumed he would sign it and told me he did so she did not have to say she hadn’t presented it to him, who knows; but this same Commissioner in another guardianship matter failed to ask what a “qualified plan” was when I presented to him that this guardianship was only necessary to distribute a single qualified plan.  Instead this decision maker pretended to know what one was when I specifically asked if he understood the taxing consequences of withdrawing funds from a qualified planned.  Had he simply admitted to not knowing the consequences of taxing qualified plans much of my later ordeal would have been avoided, but if there is one thing that most lawyers will never do – is admit that they are ignorant.

Courthouse gossip, like any untrue statements spread distrust of people and situations.

We all are human so we all make mistakes.  Lawyers don’t like to be wrong.  Neither do Judges or those with the authority of Judges, like Commissioners.

I have found that honestly pointing out these things to some in authority causes you great harm.  This I do not believe should be happening in our courts.  Honest, hardworking people should be able to get to the truth without our elected officials egos getting involved.  Without their perceptions, rather than the facts, being the reason for their actions or inaction.  As officers of the Court we are to rise above the pettiness, but when big egos get bruised they tend to retaliate in ways that they find available.  Often that is at another’s expense.  Retaliation at my expense has been very far reaching.  Thinking that by bringing someone else down they will regain what they perceive they have lost, or at least puff them up again has no place in our Courts and needs to be rooted out by voters.  It is my hope that the voters of Skagit County heed the call.

Gossip is one of the tools bruised egos use to get their revenge and gossip is rampant in the Skagit County Court, and likely with many other courts as well.  However, when the powers that be allow courthouse gossip to flourish then everyone should be very aware that what they are doing can harm good honest hard working people.  Lying to cover up your own mistakes is just wrong, but doing it and then talking about people knowingly to put them in their place is maliciously passive aggressive, to knowingly harm another just  isn’t decent.  You know who you are.  You know what you have said and done.

Notice is a necessity under the law.  It is not at anyone’s discretion.  Entering default orders to force criminal proceedings where you know there was no criminal act is not only disgraceful but unconscionable by the bench.  Giving Notice to the Pioneer Board but not to me was an abuse of the power of your position and it is morally reprehensible that you would use your position to harm me because your ego got bruised when you butted into a guardianship matter that had never come before you.  Together you and the Commissioner conspired, assuming wrongdoing.  You were proven wrong in your perception.  You were given an opportunity to be heard and instead you conspired together to get me and you did.  It wasn’t enough to ruin my reputation, no that wasn’t enough for some of you.   So I’m gone.  I’m in jail.  You’ve made me appear to be what you are protecting.  There will be others to come after me who will not break under your bullying.  Others who are stronger than I am but like me will not compromise their principles or integrity just to avoid the wrath of a two-faced back stabbing witch.  There are other’s who won’t play the status quo ball either.  They are coming.  The good people of Skagit County need to know that there are honest, hardworking lawyers zealously representing them and making decisions, but that there are unconscionable, cold hearted, public employee parasites like you who should not be re-elected ever again due to your unethical use of the law and your blatant disregard for notice before you strike.  You cannot pretend to uphold the integrity of the legal system if you are one of the main problems.  You know who you are and you know what you have done.  Where is that story?

Signing arrest warrants without probable cause after being asked for nearly twenty years to recuse yourself from all matters regarding me is obviously bias. Then ordering search warrants after the plea just proves the police had nothing, there was no probable cause for any criminal complaint, just a regurgitation of WSBA’s partial investigation, (because all exculpatory information was withheld by the very same WSBA that refuses subpoenas while asking for me to waive my confidentiality instead; then when I do so they claim their own confidentiality in my file.  Tell me, does the WSBA have confidentiality when it is a self governing body?  I know that the bar’s Executive Director Paula Littlewood never once used the word “transparency” when answering one of UW’s first year law student’s question as to what exactly does self governing mean.

Obviously, self governing means never having to be accountable for the WSBA’s own errors, investigations, misrepresentations and Statements of Concern.)

But, getting back to the point raised above, You sir, the Judge who signed my arrest warrant, you are a liar and always have been since I first dealt with you on a 1994 Estate. You know who you are and it does not surprise me that while sitting on the bench you think everyone before you is a liar, because you were a liar before the bench.  It is unfortunate that the people of Skagit County who vote have not seen your real side as I have.  Let’s hope you never run unopposed again for re-election.

But then, you lied about my brother too, didn’t you.  You recanted your statement but only after he had been disbarred.

Then there is another ex-parte liar who used your same allocations against my brother almost word for word against me in that previously mentioned matter where the Commissioner’s clerk told me an order had been signed.  First this Sheriff’s daughter admitted that it was an honest mistake, in writing.  Yet then she takes my brother’s complaint almost word for word and has her client file a phony bar complaint against me believing no doubt that I would be disbarred too.   Did your client tell you that he was investigated by APS, I wonder?  You think that because I called you out in ex-parte for lying to the Court that you should harm me?  You were the liar.  Not me.  You and your client who I reported because I am a mandatory reporter of abuse to elders in jeopardy.  You who the court appoints as guardian yet you barely do your job, but always proactively collect your fee.  You aren’t fooling me.  There’s no doubt you can fool the WSBA , you have friends in high places.

I complained because a GAL wasn’t doing her job, but she was never investigated by the WSBA, I was.  Why, because she encouraged the complaint and I relied upon the WSBA to do their job investigating the matter.  Often I was told by the bar investigator that if  anything, ANYTHING BY ANYONE,  was found to be an action for disciplinary proceedings it would be thoroughly investigated and the party would be disciplined, yet this derelict wife of a WSBA crony was never investigated.  So how is the bar protecting the integrity of the judicial system?  I informed them and gave them the information which is in the Skagit Court files, but the WSBA never got the files.  Instead, the WSBA let one of the people I specifically told my investigator about be a bar custodian of papers and complaints.  Yes, someone specifically pointed out as conspiring to harm another lawyer by making false statements and by withholding information was put in charge of disciplinary files as custodian in the years my case was being heard.  Was that because the WSBA ignores some complaints that should be investigated while dismissing others who provide favors or is it because the WSBA also fails to adequately investigate and is therefore derelict in its duty to us all?  It certainly isn’t protecting the integrity of the system as it’s mission statement implies.

On another note, the attorney witness for the prosecution testifying to excessive fees certainly is the pot calling the kettle black when one of you knowingly testified my fees were excessive after you charged over sixty thousand dollars in less than six months on a referral I gave to your old firm.  When I called to discuss it with you I was told you were no longer with the firm but had opened your own firm which I called and was told you were on vacation in Italy.  Bearing false witness is a sin.  Being a graduate of a number of Catholic Schools* you know that too.  You know you are the true crook and you testified against me out of spite.  Shame, shame on you, here’s to Dante’s Inferno not being fiction.

Just because lengthy probates with exorbitant fees is the way Skagit County has always done it doesn’t mean it is the way it should be done.  I taught people they could do living trusts and avoid probate.  This empowered the people and took their private family matters out of a mandatory court setting.  That is what the Trust, once executed, says to do and is the law everywhere but apparently Skagit County.

Here instead of following what is written in the four corners of the trust document being the law, we have one ridiculous Judge who instead of using mediation as it is intended, goes around the trust to hire every beneficiary a mediator who is also a lawyer which defeats the purpose of the trust, stole from multiple charitable beneficiaries and is a violation and an abuse of the system.

Judges who make these type of decisions instead of honoring the four corners of the document are taking away the avoidance of probate designed in the revocable living trust and leaving the parties in the probate court where they never intended to be.  People beware.  This is happening here in Skagit County and it is only making some lawyers more wealthy and stealing from your estates.

I was the messenger, I tried to warn the powers that be and discovered that some of the powers that be like the way things have always been done.  The people they socialize with reap the benefits. Under TEDRA this Judge appoints a mediator to replace every lawyer and takes these trusts through probate.  That is wrong.  They know it is wrong and they are doing it anyway.

Know that if you have a revocable living trust that upon your death it becomes irrevocable and anyone who wants to go to court IS CONTESTING the basic nature and  autonomy of that trust.  Don’t fall for anyone telling you that they are just clarifying the document or language and talk you into taking your trust to Court under TEDRA; you are being deceived by your lawyer and by anyone sitting on the bench who signs such an order.

You know who you are.  I named you in my allocution.  Its only time before you will be seen for what you are and people will see what you have done.  You haven’t won, this is to be continued for the sake of all the residents of Skagit County and all the creators of trust documents.

I know what you have done, and are doing.  It is time the people of Skagit County know who you are and what you are doing.

Anyone else may think what they like, however, I would ask the people who have met me and dealt with me personally as well as those who worked with me and who used my services if what they have read in the newspapers, what was given to the newspapers by the WSBA and certain other sources about  what has transpired involving me with & in the courts; – Does this at all go with your idea of the person that YOU know me to be?  The person who once had a stellar reputation, the one who sat across from you, spoke with you, counseled you, went to school with or picked strawberries or dug bulbs or waited tables with?

If it doesn’t then ask yourself,  WHY?.   There is a story here and it isn’t me.

Respectfully,
Rosemary Kamb
