Journalist Brandia Taamu “Exposes Washington State Bar for Racketeering Profit Org

We often repost like minded bloggers blog. Today, we came across this website that might assist current Washington State Bar members in fighting the RICO thugs, such as Linda Eide, Doug Ende, Kirstian Schimpff, and Joseph Nappi Jr.

Thank you also B. Woods for sharing your horrific story of abuse you suffered at the hands of Snohomish County Superior Court Judges. You are an inspiration to all of us!  Thank you.

Credit for this post goes to Journalist, Activist and Reverend Brandia Taamu. Ms. Taamu’s bravery and courage is refreshing in this era of government corruption. Thank you Brandia!  http://snohomishcountycorruption.wordpress.com/tag/chair/

What is the definition of RICO? I’ll just go ahead & show you

I briefly touched on a lawyer who filed a complaint against Christine Gregoire then found himself thrown into a legal battle for his career. He ended up being disbarred but since Ms Gregoire has stacked the judges in the Superior Appeals, & Supreme court in HER favor it’s no wonder. He filed a RICO complaint against all of those involved, his name is actually John Scannell, I think I got it wrong in the last article but I’ll go back & fix it.

The Washington State Bar Association meets the premium definition of RICO they conduct quasi legal hearings, & make up the rules as they go along. If you have ever seen the movie “Mean Girls” that pretty much sums up the WSBA.

If you file a report against a city or county, even state official, all they have to do is call the bar & “tell on you” within 6 months your life’s work is gone.

No worries though even if they can’t find something to use against you they will go on a mass emailing campaign to try to solicit others to file erroneous complaints against you as well.

I will post the emails of Linda Eide soliciting other people in Seattle/King County to file complaints against a lawyer who filed a complaint against a cop for tripping her as soon as I get a hold of her but I don’t know if she will need it for a lawsuit so I am not going to post it right yet.

That is what we call RICO ~ 2 or more people conspiring to harm you. No one is immune & since most of our Government is run by lawyers, judges & prosecutors the bar has Supreme control over the Washington state Government. That needs to change & then we can eliminate atleast 75% of the corruption in this state immediately.

The Bar has inserted itself into every aspect of our state’s govt, & you would be very wise to pay attention to the many names that come up in so many committees lawyers/bar members that are in the Judiciary & from big law firms (most of whom have very lucrative contracts with city, county & state agencies. These are just a couple of them

Anyway getting back to this past Lawyer, John Scannell, I received a good deal of the briefs he filed. I have other info but the following are a part of public record so I am posting them. Once I make contact with him then if he okays it I will post other items. The first one is 99 pages but it is WELL WORTH reading, it is vital to read all of them so that you can read EXACTLY how the Bar operates when they decide to destroy someone without merit. Keep in mind I also have emails of them soliciting complaints to destroy this man! Again til I find him I won’t release them.

John Scannell RICO complaint filed

Complaint First Amended

Declaration of Independence

Fourth Amended Complaint

Second Amended Complaint final signed

Third Amended Complaint 3

You do have to give the Bar an A for effort atleast… I just realized the reason they were feeding information to Pennington & Beavers at the Sky Valley Chronicle about Anne Block. They couldn’t solicit others to file complaints against her because she does not actually practice law… so they figured if they put it on the local rag they might get one person to say I have a complaint against Ms Block but they couldn’t even accomplish that because they grossly underestimated her. She disassociated herself from the bar on December, of 2013 because her business doesn’t even require her to practice law. Now they are trying to drag her into court claiming they have jurisdiction over her still because of all the complaints Crystal Hill & John Pennington were filing against Ms Block even though at NO time have they ever been her client. If nothing else I take immense joy in watching them flounder after their usual method of attack has started to unravel into the Federal Violations arena.

Okay so we know that the ex-gov was an attorney… What about our current Governer? Why yes he is. So was the Governor before: So are we to believe that the ONLY folks who can or will run for Gov are attorneys? Classically only lawyers are governors in this state. Our current Gov is already on his way to appointing his own group of Judiciary.

I don’t believe that Inslee is corrupt, & I haven’t found evidence to believe he is. Trust me I get so much information everyday that I have to have 4 external drives just to hold it all, & nothing has come across about him yet.

Now as far as our Supreme Court I only trust 1 of the Justices, or rather there is only ONE with enough balls to stand up to Christine Gregoire Please note that her Supreme Court Appointee Gonzales agreed in the decision.

In the only dissenting opinion, Justice James Johnson said the majority ruling essentially amended the state constitution and a voter-approved initiative that established public-disclosure law decades ago. “The majority ignores our state’s constitution, statutes, and populist tradition and does great damage to over 120 years of open government in Washington,” Johnson wrote. “It is not alarmist to say that this decision could place a shroud of secrecy over much government conduct, unless changed by a wiser court, electorate, or legislature.”

I know I am going way far out of Snohomish County but in order for me to explain this all to you & for you to understand you have to know who the players are in the “game” & how they got there, but once I am done then you’ll understand just how insidious & deep seated the corruption in this state runs. Hopefully this will be a wake up call for others in surrounding counties & all around this state.

Now I want you to pay attention to these names: They will be very important.

The Fifth Mule, “Sister Sara Di Vittorio”

On Monday September 29, 2014, Snohomish County Prosecutor ” Sister Sara” Di Vittorio, Our Fifth Mule, tells Washington’s Sunshine Committee ” we need help. We don’t have the resources in the Act to protect our employees, she said “she expects another batch of requests once the person learns of her testimony” ( updated retraction on May 22,2015a once learned of Snohomish County Daily Herald’s corrected its original story which said what we originally posted)   That’s right, Sister Sara told Washington State’s Sunshine Committee that she is using taxpayer money ( unlawful use of pubic funds is prohibited under Washington State’s Constitution) to provide personal protection for county employees.

Sister Sara gives the impression that Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Public Records Div. is nothing more than a “Little RICO” with its main function ” to protect county employees.”

The employees Sister Sara is refering to are the same county employees, such as pedophile and former Snohomish County Director of Emergency Management John Pennington and taxpayer funded hired thug Prosecutor Sean Reay ( who threatened to physically harm a Gold Bar Reporter as witnessed by another citizen), were caught running illegal ACCESS background checks on citizens and then disseminated the journals into Gold Bar and County public records.

As a result, the illegal criminal background searches became a public record under RCW 42.56, and even far more ergregious is the fact that the City of Gold Bar, by and through its attorney Michael Kenyon ( who is also involved in a lot of shady shit all over the State of Washington) and Gold Bar’s current Mayor Linda ” High as a Fuckin Kite” Loen and former Mayor Richard  Joe Beavers Nixon, misappropriated over $1,000,000 of Gold Bar’s Enterprise funds ( City’s water funds) to pay off the RICO Enteprise leaders for, as Sister Sara proudly states ” to protect county employees.”

Sister Sara’s slip of the tongue statement about how she is misusing taxpayer money to ” protect” county employees pursuant to Washington State’s Public Records Act is quite telling, and worthy of news story all of itself.

As protectors of the Public Records Act, we, news reporters, cannot let Sister Sara’s unethical and misuse our monies go without comment.

However, before we wrote a story about “Sister Sara”,  Our Fifth Mule ( and the title of Chapter 4 of our soon to be published book), we believe Sister Sara should be afforded an opportunity to respond. Below is a letter sent to Sister Sara requesting comment from our good friends inside the Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office.

Dear Sister Sara-

We are working on a story about County Prosecutorial misconduct and a couple of Judges.

We noted that you told the Sunshine Committee on Monday that “we no longer have money to protect the employees. ” These statements are very interesting statements; why do you believe that the PRA ( access to our records laws) is here to protect public officials?

Does to the WA State Const. not prohibit the use of public funds for personal protection? Are you using county taxpayer monies and resources to protect employees? If so, what are you protecting them from under the PRA?

Is not the better approach to protecting county employees health to increase their health care coverage? Is not the better approach in responding to PUBLIC records requests to teach employees not to commit crimes of running illegal ACCESS background checks on citizens; or as in the case of one Sno Co prosecutor, Dave Hayes, you might train him not to conspire via email to violate Attorney Kathryn Abele’s civil rights and then disseminate those violations via email?

Do you have any idea the trauma, pain and suffering, and money County Prosecutor Dave Hayes cost Ms. Abele because of his blatant disregard for her civil rights?

Also please see RCW 5.68.010 before slipping the lip about what ‘s really going on inside Sno County DIS- you’re embarrassing the taxpayers who care about open government when you make stupid slip of the lip comments about how the county is responding in ways to protect employees. After all, if you read RCW 42.56, it appears that it’s the agency actions that are subject to inspection not the citizen. But your statements yesterday leave this reporter with the feeling that you found a new meaning that you might share with our Legislature.

We realize that the County has had no checks n balances over the years except The Herald’s fantastic reporters Scott North and Noah Haglund, but this is our job just as much as Scott and Noah’s job. It’s called Reporting. So perhaps we can all learn to get along and the county can start by training employees instead of attacking citizens who request records or question their government officials.

Thomas Jefferson said ” The highest form of Patriotism is dissent.” or as Mom and Dad said “you have a civic duty to question your government officials.” Hence why we became a news reporter.

Training is key, and we are not just referring to PRA training. How not to violate citizens civil rights would be county taxpayer money well spent.

If you respond we shall post your comments to our 6 ,000 plus dedicated readers.

PS: thank you Honest Senator Dean Takko for your support on open government issues. Us reporters rely on access to public records; as you can imagine when we hear bizarre public comments about how the PRA is somehow supposed to be protecting government officials from the citizens they were sworn in to protect, not harm. We look at these statements as nothing more than Aaron Reardon’s staff are alive and well up here in Sno County. In fact, Senator, if my memory is right, Sister Sara made the same comments last year, and accused us of sending the county anonymous public records request, when in fact it was three of our lovely county Executive employees , Aaron Reardon, Jon Rudicil and Kevin Hulten. From their emails it’s confirmed that the trio were trying to create hysteria to push the County’s efforts to change the PRA. Disgraceful but true.

Gold Bar Reporter
What cover ups Sister Sara is trying to protect Snohomish County employees from disclosure are the gross violation of the civil rights by public officers against its citizens. This illegal conduct has become a way of life here in Snohomish County.

Additional public records from King County Major Crimes Unit documented that former convicted evidence tamperer Kevin “Shorty” Hulten was also referencing law enforcement ACCESS databases on citizens as well as other online sources ( which are often wrong and not updated often) to run illegal searches on citizens. Government officers actions are subject to United States Const. limitations under the 4th, 5th and 14th Amendments.

But the thugs inside Snohomish County believe themselves to be above the laws of Washington – and spit all over the United States Constitution on a daily basis.  See https://goldbarreporter.wordpress.com/2014/09/

According to Washington State Patrol’s (WSP) public records officer, law enforcement ( rightfully so) has a legal right to access non-conviction and criminal conviction history on any citizen but must have a legally permissible reason to make that search. A great example of permissible searches is when a person is pulled over a traffic violation. A police officer would ask for your license and registration, and then s/he goes back to the patrol car and runs a computer check via ACCESS.  This is performed for the officer’s safety.

But, as in the case of several open government supporters here in Snohomish County, the county and its officers were running illegal background checks. Not only does this violate the civil rights of citizens, but it’s also a crime under RCW 10.97.

ACCESS database checks can be requested via Gretchen.Dolan@wsp.wa.gov and here’s a copy of one recent ACCESS record request that one Gold Bar Reporter sent to Ms. Dolan:

Ms. Dolan –

Pursuant to RCW 42.56, please provide me with electronic copies of any ACCESS checks performed on me:

Date of Birth:  12-24-1957

To provide the fullest assistance to myself, please email me copies of all records at this email address.

The above records request to the WSP confirmed beyond a shadow of a doubt that several illegal and non-permissible background checks were performed on several Gold Bar open government supporters. In all four cases, RCW 10.97 was violated. A crime in Washington State, unless you belong to Snohomish County’s ” Little RICO” club also refered to by Snohomish County most nortorious public criminal John E. Pennington
(removed as Director of Emergency Managment he caused the deaths of 44 people in Oso Washington Mudslides but still collects a $150,000.00 year welfare check) as ” My Little Gang who took a pledge to protect me.”

In a few weeks, we will post the names of people who are John Pennington’s protectors; this list includes Judges, Prosecutors, lawyers from the Law Office of Anderson Hunter and Kenyon Disend, Executive Officers, one person from Snohomish County’s Department of Information Services, and several emloyees of the Washington State Bar Association ( who recently voted to remove the word Association hoping to avoid a legal battle inside the US Supreme Court over disassociation. Too little too late).
So what’s happens when non-law enforcement personnel such as Snohomish County’s most notorious thugs John Pennington ( also the prime suspect in a child rape case in Colwitz County – child was 5) and Prosecutor Sean Reay ran illegal ACCESS searches as they did to several open government supporters up here in Snohomish County.

WSP says “if law enforcement does not have a legal right to run such searches, this may constitute an illegal search under the Forth Amendment to the United States Constitution and possibly an invasion of privacy.”
According to Washington State Patrol Gretchen Dolan, any citizen who requested under RCW 42.56, a copy of their ACCESS database information is entitled to a copy under the law.  If a citizen believes that an illegal search was performed, RCW allows a citizen to contact the Washington State Patrol requesting copies of their ACCESS journals log.
One of our dedicated 6,000 readers wrote ” If what you are writing is true, each and every one of us should request copies of our ACCESS journal searches via the WSP Gretchen Dolan.”  We believe that  ” We the people of this great state have a legal right to know what our government officials are up to” or as two political gurus stated ” We the people have a civic duty to question our government officials. The criminal RICO members at the WA State Bar are no exceptions”

And for those readers who believe our words about Sister Sara are beyond the pale, please see Merriam’s Dictionary definition of prostitution http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/prostitution ” the use of a skill or ability in a way that is not appropriate or respectable
UPDATE: As of July 2014, all records, including email communication, is now legally obtainable under new Supreme Court rules mandating that the Washington State Bar comply with RCW 42.56.  The WSBA’s public records officer is:  kirstens@wsba.org

Also, another person asked us if we had any evidence that the AG’s Office was directly involved in covering up illegal criminal conduct up here in Snohomish County. Our response is: not at this time, but we are searching.
