Snohomish County employee sending anonymous public records requests, again!

Who let these pigs out?


Last week Noah Haglund and Jerry Cornfield posted an article without fact checking prior to publishing.  The title of the story was “Anonymous records request seeks data from 1,000 county phones.”


Some of my friends sent me letters suggesting that the Snohomish County Daily Herald was trying to imply that the Gold Bar Reporter was the anonymous public records requester. Pretty laughable shit knowing what we uncovered about Snohomish County’s government thugs trying to change the Public Records Act every year since we started reporting the news pursuant to RCW 5.68.010 ( Media Shield).

Snohomish County Executive’s Officers Long History of Trying to Change the Public Records Act

From 2010 to 2011, Snohomish County Executive’s officers sent a demented old grandfather to Olympia to talk about how terrible it is that he had to turn over public records implicating him ( Gold Bar’s then Mayor Joe Beavers) in gross civil rights violations. But then when he emailed a nasty letter to open government his little old grandfather façade allowed others to finally see his true colors.

In 2012, Snohomish County Executive Officer, Kevin “shorty” Hulten created a fake company, Edmond Thomas, and he too sent anonymous public records requests to Snohomish County attempting to change the Public Records Act. Reason, to gain sympathy during the next legislative session to change the Public Record Act.

But oh no, Mr. Hulten got caught mainly by us, who then turned over the evidence to the Snohomish County Daily Herald.


And then last year ( 2014), Snohomish County Prosecutor Sister Sara DiVittorio went down to the Sunshine Committee and said ” we are out of money to protect county employees.”


We exposed Sister Sara as her ” slip of the lip” statements about how the County was out of money to protect county employees from open government supporters.  Sister Sara’s slip of the tongue statements were absolutely pathetic, especially coming from a lawyer who is sworn in to uphold the great state of Washington’s laws. Instead, Sister Sara is breaking them.

Of course, as somewhat of an electronic evidence expert ( after five years of reading .pst files) I knew that there is no way that the Snohomish County Daily Herald would do what it did when Gold Bar’s then Mayor Crystal Hill resigned and not request a copy of Crystal Hill’s resignation letter.

So after seeing the Daily Herald’s article on Sunday,  I couldn’t resist seeing who Mr. Public Records Requester was, so I sent a public records request for a copy of Mr. Public Records Requesters Public Records Request with metadata.

Perhaps the Snohomish County Daily Herald will do a little investigation prior to reporting that the requester is anonymous. It’s very tiring to be only one of two real journalist in Snohomish County.

Sounds like false certification by public officer to us. We’re going to keep working on getting the name of cockroach Who is trying to change open government laws from inside Snohomish County government.

Once we have their name/s, we’re going to post . That’s a promise!

More fraud involving Snohomish County? 

No it can’t be, Snohomish County fraud?


I have to admit, Snohomish County never ceases to amaze me on just how corrupt our government is.  Earlier this week I received a tip that Snohomish County developer Lobstag Dargey was under investigation by the Securties and Exchange Commission (SEC).

According to the SEC, Dargey misappropriated over 17.6 Million dollars from investors.  This of course led me to start investigating who Dargey is connected to up here in Snohomish County.  Well it didn’t take me long to obtain a list of public officials who believe we’re on the take.  I have read over 1 ** million emails between and among public officials here in Washington, and with that experience I know who the dirty politicians are and who are pretty darn boring.

Although not exclusive, Lobstag Dargey is directly connected to the following Corrupt public officials up here in corurt Snohomish County:

Everett Mayor Ray Stephenson

Executive John Lovick

Former Executive employee Kevin “shorty” Hulten

Senator Steve Hobbs (Lake Stevens)

Former Reardon executive employee Jon Rudicil

Executive  employee Brian Perry ( a left over bag of trash from Reardon’s administration)

Former Executive Aaron Reardon

Executive Deputy Director Mark Ericks

At least for Aaron Reardon and Kevin Hulten the ties to Dargey are fairly easy, Reardon’s pennies for his home in Indigo California and Kevin Hulten’s extend stay housing program  in the  San Fransicisco Bay Area for just over a year after he plead guilty to evidence tampering.

This corruption up here in Snohomish County government runs so deep it’s like diarrhea 24-7

When you see one cockroaches there are hundreds more behind the walls. We can’t wait to hear who Dargey rats out as taking bribes with the missing 17.6 million.  But from land deals, we suspect it’s several corrupt pieces of shit from Snohomish County’s Executive officers club.

” the lights come on, the cockroaches scatter”

** originally posted 5 Million instead of 1 Million, a clerical error **

I love RCW 42.56


I feel very fortunate to be a Washingtonian!   The Public Records Act ( RCW 42.56) has been instrumental in exposing several government officers gross acts of Domestic Spying in Washington State.

An insider from Snohomish County tells me that we have a Whistleblower . . .


Former Gold Bar Mayor Crystal Hill Pennington’s fraud EXPOSED

seattle-wedding-photography-cj24 (2)

Former Mayor Crystal Hill Pennington  ( nee Berg) EXPOSED

The Gold Bar Reporters were first to break the story about Gold Bar’s Mayor Crystal Hill Pennington’s bank fraud conviction. According to a former insider, it’s a little about what Gold Bar’s Mayor Linda Loen and Joe Beavers are covering up inside the emails. Costing the taxpayers of Gold Bar over $1,000,000.00 as of today with no end in sight.

According to the Washington State Auditor’s Gold Bar Audit report, dated November 2014, there’s over $200,000.00 missing from the City’s funds ( water) and not one single employee can explain where it went.

According to a former Gold Bar council member,  ” I believe Crystal Hill was stealing from the City!”

We here at the Gold Bar Reporters have read enough emails between Crystal Hill and Gold Bar’s former clerk treasurer Laura Kelly to know that Crystal Hill and Laura Kelly were involved in a check cashing scheme. The scheme as we exposed in 2013 involved Crystal Hill, a non-lawyer, signing up for Continue Legal Education and other classes, paid for with Gold Bar taxpayer monies, then canceling, then having a refund check reissued.

Since Crystal Hill’s Bank of America account in Sultan was frozen for continuing to pass bad bank checks  ( 2006-2009) to her mortgage holder and others, even after she plead guilty to bank fraud for the same offense, Gold Bar’s clerk Laura Kelly would cash the refund check and give Crystal Hill cash in return.

Our readers should know that there’s no evidence that Laura Kelly or Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg bank fraud 2005) returned the refunded monies to the taxpayers of Gold Bar.

The Washington State Auditor’s November 2014 report noted that there’s $200,000.00 missing from the City of Gold Bar funds that not one employee can explain where it went.


In July 2012, Gold Bar’s clerk treasurer was caught by the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office, via a hidden camera placed in her office inside Gold Bar City Hall putting stolen city funds back and then lying to a police officer.

Caught red handed, but since Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe Beavers needed Ms. Kelly’s declaration for ongoing litigation, and to assist in hiding his email crimes of domestic spying ( running illegal background checks on open government supporters out here in Gold Bar) and extortion scheme involving Snohomish County Department of Emergency Management’s former Director John E. Pennington,  Joe Beavers requested Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe and Seth Fine not prosecute Laura Kelly.

Mr. Fine was in charge of the Snohomish County Prosecutor’s criminal unit at the time of each one of these offenses, but now with ongoing RICO suits pending as it relates to the County’s involvement, he was moved to the county’s civil unit.

According to our legal counsel, a clear obstruction of justice and RICO violations by all involved; and since Kelly was the City’s clerk treasurer at the time of the theft, a felony theft charge should have been pursued.

Gold Bar’s former Mayor Joe Beavers is being sued for Racketeering in US Federal District Court, and the case in the appeals process awaiting the 9th Circuit’s Remand Order.

Late yesterday, we learned from another reporter that Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg) also managed to obtain federal contracts with FEMA Emergency Management Institute (EMI).

There’s only problem for Crystal Hill Pennington; as a child raised by a father who worked for the federal government his whole life, I learned a lot about the internal workings of the federal government including that a  person who plead guilty to fraud of any kind is ineligible for federal contracts or federal employment of any kind.

Now, I had to call a friend who I attended law school with, who is now a federal attorney in Washington D.C. to answer one question:  If a person pleads guilty to fraud and manages to expunge their criminal history, either by deferred prosecution or expunging the conviction record itself, does this make them eligible to be awarded federal contracts?

The attorney said ” she is ineligible for most federal benefits, contracts or employment, as a result of her fraud conviction regardless of whether any state expunges the record. In fact, if you look at the application she had to affirm to under oath and sign, You will see an exclusion clause just above the signature line. This clause specifically requests that the person seeking federal contracts to affirm under oath that they have never plead guilty to or been convicted of fraud. Whether or not she’s eligible for state contracts is not relevenat to whether this excludes her from federal employment and contracts. ”

A complaint against Crystal Hill Pennington is being pursued and a public records request has been sent to FEMA EMI seeking copies of any files relating to Crystal Hill Pennington’s FEMA EMI contracts.  Once received, we will post copies.

If anyone thinks that this taxpayer will sit idle while my taxpayer monies are being misused to support a person who plead guilty to fraud, You don’t know me too well.
