Happy Holidays

Though December 25 is the day Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus, the date itself and the custom of celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ evolved from Pagan traditions of celebrating the winter solstice.

Despite the spread of Christianity, midwinter festivals did not become Christmas for hundreds of years. The Bible gives no reference to when Jesus was born and the first Bible was written by two men and published in 1384 after the death of Christ.

Christmas, as we Americans know it today, was first celebrated in the 4th Century.

In England under Oliver Cromwell banned, and in New England it was illegal to celebrate Christmas.

By the 16th-century, Protestant Christian reformer Martin Luther, added the first lighted candles to the Pagan Christmas tree. So when Christianity became the official religion in Italy, Romans celebrated Winter Solstice with gift giving, candle lighting, singing and decorating houses.

How the Christmas tree came into play, we have the Pagans to thank. According to Pagan history, evergreen trees signaled the return of life and light as the winter solstice meant the days were starting to get longer and the sun starts coming back, otherwise known as December 25th.

In celebration of spring and summer months of light, bringing life back to plant life on Mother Earth, Pagans hung apples and red balls on the trees, and mistletoes hung is a symbol of healing from the sacred oak tree. This was such a powerful symbol of Paganism that churches actually banned such practices for 25 years.

The War on Christmas dates back to the Puritans in the mid-17th century. Puritans knew that to control the people, they must ban all Pagan traditions. As a result, Christmas was actually banned in America for 20 years before our founders decided the only way for America to thrive as a nation was to separate church and state. This resulted in Thomas Jefferson writing the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, which prevents the government from making laws which regulate an establishment of religion, prohibit the free exercise of religion. 

This Clause protects Pagans, Atheists, Christians, Jews, Muslims, Agnostics, Protestants, etc from government interference in favor of any particular religion.

For those of you who celebrate the birth of Jesus, or those like myself who celebrate another wonderful and propserous year known as Winter Solstice, such free exercise for or against any particular religion is truly what makes America the greatest nation on Mother Earth.

Corrupt acts to benefit a small few, covered up by government officials, is what makes America weak and vulnerable to foreign interference.


“The very reason for the First Amendment is to make the people of this country free to think, speak, write and worship as they wish, not as the Government commands. ” The Honorable Justice Hugo Black 



Washington Court of Appeals Justice Marlin Applewick’s unethical conduct captured in public records, again!

In 2014, Washington State Court of Appeals Division One heard oral arguments in Block v Gold Bar.  In this case, a Gold Bar resident  sought public records relating to Mayor Crystal Hill’s illegal transfer of public monies to a water boy named Karl Majerle. Mr. Majerle sabotaged the City of Gold Bar’s water system, and not one public official reported his acts of Domestic Terrorism to Homeland Security.

Main reason for the massive cover up was described by former council member Jay Preuher, ” Crystal Hill was a party girl being passed around like a blanket” and Mayor Joe Beavers who screamed three times in Gold Bar City Hall  ” Crystal Hill is a whore.”

In 2009, the Gold Bar Reporter hired a open government attorney to file suit and gain access to public records to answer this question ” why was Karl Majerle given a single cent when the records from the City of Gold Bar was clear that he sabotaged the city’s water system?”

The answer to this question took years of digging through public records, and just last week we finally confirmed these facts:

1: (1) Crystal Hill was in engaged in several extra-marital affairs, including but not limited to, five county employees, Gold Bar’s police chief (2) Executive Aaron Reardon, (3) Senator Steve Hobbs, Sean Reay, and (4) John Edward Pennington.

2:  Karl Majerle knew Crystal Hill had been arrested for and plead guilty to bank fraud, once in 2000, North Carolina where she served time in jail for not complying with her diversion plea agreement, and once in Snohomish County Washington Evergreen District Court, 2005, where she served probation for her fraud.

3:  Crystal Hill was using an alias of Crystal Berg and had been fired for stealing from Community Transit in 2001.  Community Transit never prosecuted Ms. Hill because her mom was a long term employee of Community;

4. Crystal Hill had stolen in excess of $200,000.00 from the City’s water and petty cash funds.

5. Crystal Hill and John E Pennington had illegally transferred $4500.00 of federal emergency housing funds to Crystal Hill in May 2009.  Funds the federal government transfers to the County to help persons being evicted from their homes pay three months of back rent.  Problem for Ms. Hill and Mr Pennington is simple: Crystal Hill was not a renter; her home was in foreclosure and as an owner she was not eligible for federal emergency housing funds, only renters are.


6.  In 2008, Gold Bar’s Mayor Crystal Hill Pennington contracted a sexually transmitted disease (STD), disseminated information relating to her STD results inside a public email.  Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe Beavers felt it was “private” however since Ms. Hill infected a high ranking Washington State political official with STD, the email was in fact public email in part i.e. who it was sent to and from, the email addresses.

Beavers Bullwinkle

Joe Beavers, Gold Bar’s former Mayor’s behavior captured in Snohomish County Superior Court in 2018 above; soon after taking this picture we learned Mr. Beavers was diagnosed with dementia 

For over ten years, Gold Bar has been sued for access to public records. During those ten years, two former Mayors, Joe ” convicted felon” Beavers and Linda ” High as a Kite” Loen, and five attorneys, Michael Kenyon, Margaret King, Ann Marie Soto, Shannon Ragonesi, and Amanda Butler, falsely claimed the City did not have access to.   Then to make matters worse, all five filed false statements in every single court case, and even went on television falsely claiming that the the city was going broke paying the legal bills to block access to Mayor Crystal Hill Pennington’s public email records (STD results between Hill and a high ranking Senator).

What Gold Bar residents were never told is that the Washington State Attorney General Rob McKenna, Sara DiVittorio, Miko Tempski, Sean Reay, Mark Roe, and Bob Ferguson, illegally removed Gold Bar public records from the City of Gold Bar and placed a copy at Association of Washington Cities (AWC) and at the Washington State Attorney General’s Office and the State of Washington was funding the entire litigation bill for Gold Bar.

According to former Gold Bar council member Jay Prueher ” Department of Correction’s employee Lonn Turner put something stupid in his emails that if released the city will be sued again… Hill was stealing from the City.”

So when Snohomish County Prosecutors Sean Reay and Mark Roe decided to covered Mayor Hill’s racketeering crimes as a favor to a Director, John E Pennington ( fired for harassing the Gold Bar Reporter using a fake news website Penningtons controlled), Mr. Pennington was fired and is now headed for bankruptcy.

Now, thanks to Washington Court of Appeals Justice Marlin Applewick, we now know why Mayor Joe Beavers was bragging that he had the fix in with the Courts and even laughed at the Court of Appeals Division One hearing in Block v Gold Bar.  What we didn’t know, but Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe “Felon” Beavers and the Penningtons’ knew was, one of the Justices on both Shavlik v Gold Bar and Block v Gold Bar, was Justice Marlin Applewick, who had declared to be a good friend to John  E Pennington.

The Gold Bar Reporter contacted a Professor from the University of Chicago who was asked ” Can a judge hear and decide cases involving a friend’s wife?”  The Professor said ” absolutely not! If  evidence  of any personal relationship, you need to file a judicial ethics complaint. This judge should be removed for breaching his ethical duties to disclose under Cannon Rules!”

Yes, we do have evidence that every time the City of Gold Bar is sued involving Washington Court of Appeals Division One Marlin Applewick’s good friend John E. Pennington’s wife, and to gain access into former Gold Bar Mayor Crystal Hill Pennington’s email communication, John Pennington’s good friend and Washington State Court of Appeals Justice Marlin Applewick appears on these cases and violates well settled case law under RCW 42.56 to stop anyone from deposing his good friend John Pennington’s wife.


In 1999, while serving in an uncontested Cowlitz County seat, Marlin Applewick and Mill Creek Rep. John Lovick ( who last year was caught masturbating beside the bed of his daughter’s best friend when she was 12 years old) made this former statement while in the legislature:



Representative Pennington: “Thank you, Representative Alexander for your kind remarks. I would like to introduce my wife and best friend, Valerie and my Mother-in-Law, Ruth Fox. Judge Appelwick Over the past two years in this position, I have had three wonderful teachers. One is my friend Speaker Clyde Ballard. Another, the gentleman I will soon nominate for the office of Chief Clerk, Mr. Tim Martin, and the third is my former colleague and friend, Judge Marlin Appelwick. What an honor to be sworn in by him.


In 1999, Marlin Applewick, a good friend Gold Bar’s Mayor Crystal Hill Pennington’s husband, commits egregious Cannon violations against Gold Bar Reporter Anne Block, and activist/journalist Lori Shavlik when he hid the fact that he was a good friend to John E Pennington.  Cannon Rules mandate when a judge has a personal relationship with anyone inside a cases for which he is assigned, he must disqualify/recuse himself from the case.

Marlin Applewick not only failed disclose that he was a good friend to John E Pennington, he issued orders on two public records cases involving his good friend John E Pennington’s wife’s email communication here in Gold Bar.


For my readers, ask yourself one question: Should a judge ever hear and decide a case involving his good friend’s wife?

Limestone Networks, a Dallas company, tries to hack in to the Gold Bar Reporter

Three times today, a company based out of Dallas Texas, Limestone Networks, made several attempts to hack in to the Gold Bar Reporter.  Every single attack Limestone made, our firewalls blocked out.


In 1986, Congress passed the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA), the federal statute that prohibits unauthorized computer access. Under federal law, unauthorized computer access describes the act of:

  1. Knowingly accessing a computer without authorization to obtain:
  2. Financial information
  3. Information from a governmental department or agency
  4. Information from any protected computer with the intent to defraud
  5. Knowingly causing the transmission of a program, information, or code from a protected computer
  6. Knowingly accessing a protected computer and causing damage and loss to that computer

According to our counsel, the penalty for hacking includes high fines and sentences of up to 10 years of prison time.

Limestone Networks is based out of Dallas Texas, and the official IP address that tried to hack in to the Gold Bar Reporter several times today is:

Limestone Networks was contacted for comment but refused. Bigger question for us reporters is why? Why would a company based out of Dallas be so interested in hacking into the Gold Bar Reporter?

The Gold Bar Reporter is a small online news source from Washington State.  Dedicated to exposing mainly corrupt politicians, especially ones that prey on our children.


Perhaps someone from Limestone networks is helping a disgraced and now terminated Director of Snohomish County Emergency Management  cover up his crimes against women and children?  Could this be some kind of connection to the pedophilia ring that Jack Abramoff blew the whistle about involving Washington State politicians from  Olympia during the late 1990s who were sexually abusing kids inside Washington State’s foster care system?

Interesting to note that Boys Town in Omaha Nebraska keeps looking up John E Pennington, Snohomish County.

Remember Boys Town was the center of massive sex abuse scandal from the 1900s called the ” The Franklin Sex Abuse Scandal.”


Disgraced man who killed 43 people in Oso mudslides using false academic credentials, again!


John Edward Pennington, labeled a sociopath and declared autistic by two King County Washington State doctors, committing more felonies against the taxpayers, once again caught using false academic credentials, but this time in Alaska

We recently learned that John E Pennington is on the loose claiming to be a PhD student at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.  Did he forget that he needs a real Bachelor’s Degree first?

In 2017, John Pennington and Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg convicted of bank fraud) were held liable to Gold Bar Reporter Anne Block for the tort of forgery, see below.


From FEMA to Snohomish County, to Pierce County Washington, “Lunatic on the loose”

On February 22, 2017, Pierce College public official and man responsible for killing of 43 people in the Oso mudslides, John E. Pennington, verbally assaulted a Pierce County Sheriff’s Officer caught on camera.  He also verbally threatened the Gold Bar Reporter’s process server who served John Pennington with more complaints and a subpoena.

Unfortunately, John Pennington’s criminal conduct was caught on camera and witnessed by several onlookers at the Piece County Courthouse, including three Sheriff’s Officers.

The Gold Bar Reporters recently learned that John Pennington has been treated for major mental health problems, and was kicked out of Vanderbilt College as a result.

Imagine a man with mental health problems sat as a Director of Emergency Management of Snohomish County.  A major breach to health and welfare to the taxpayers of Washington State.

John Pennington is being sued for his latest racketeering crimes and posting defamatory and untrue statements on a website he and his bank frauding wife Crystal Hill Pennington run titled  ” The Sky Valley Chronicle.”  Both were served with new complaints on Thursday, and by John Pennington’s threats and tactics to intimidate court officers were witnessed on camera.

” Looney Tunes, What’s up Doc? ”

“Lunatic on the loose” John E Pennington has been trying for over eight years to obtain a prior restraint on free speech against the Gold Bar Reporter’s reports on his and our former bank frauding Mayor Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg, bank fraud Snohomish County, Washington 2005).    Why, to hide their criminal racketeering conduct the Gold Bar Reporter have been exposing for over the last ten years, including a foe online website the Penningtons set up to cyber-stalk their opponents.

Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe Beavers was deposed in November 2016, and he too admitted he was a anonymous cyber-stalker on the Penningtons’ website while he was a Gold Bar public official. Beavers and the City are being sued for gross civil rights violations.

On Thursday February 22, 2017, the lunatics tried for the tenth time to obtain a restraining order against the Gold Bar Reporter, but this time forum shopping in Pierce County.  A county where Crystal Hill Pennington doesn’t live and a county where John Pennington managed to fraud state taxpayers ( and our children) with false academic credentials obtaining a job teaching our youngsters.

Imagine you sign up for Homeland Security degree at Pierce College and your classes are being taught by a man who has admitted to having and using false academic credentials

Please see the attached ABOVE PDF Government Accountability Report  ( or link provided above) on public official John E Pennington’s online diploma mill school of choice.  I also include Seattle Times article in support of John Pennington’s false academic credential.


As both reports unmistakably confirms the IRS found that California Coastal sold degrees at flat rates.  As such,  Mark Lindquist, please consider this letter and supporting evidence in support on my criminal complaint against John E. Pennington as he produced his fraudulent online degree to obtain a benefit in violation of

As for Pierce College, I’d like some comment from the Dean of Students and/or  Board of Trustees Chair Ms. Roseblatt on why Pierce College approved employment of John E. Pennington with such fraudulent degrees.

As a taxpayer, I have standing to bring not only a criminal complaint for John Pennington false filings, but also a civil charge for state ethics violations.

Our children deserve better from us.


John E. Pennington has yet one more credential to add his resume, threatening public and court officers.

With each new credential, the Gold Bar Reporter will update his resume.

Criminal charges have been filed against John E Pennington with his court appearance this month.



Snohomish County Judge Edirin Okoloko obstructing justice, lying during official criminal investigation, involved in cover up of sexual assault of Snohomish County worker


After this egregious conduct, and some say felonious crimes, Governor Jay Inslee appointed Edirin Okoloko to an open Snohomish County Superior Court judicial seat, because well, I guess being involved with the cover up of a sexual assault of  a female co-worker is a prerequisite for Governor Jay Inslee for judgeship.


Edirin Okoloko 

In June 2018, Snohomish County deputy prosecutor Chris Dickinson, 55, sexually assaulted a female co-worker at a party at Lake Chelan while he was being paid to attend the Washington Association of Prosecuting Attorneys’ conference, while two other prosecutors (who Prosecutor Mark Roe refused to identify until we obtained public records) took intimate / nude photos of a woman, who appears to be too intoxicated to consent. 

Our inside source said” I understand that at least two of prosecutors passed those nude photos around on Snohomish County Prosecutors computers.” 


According to public records retrieved from Snohomish County, the sexual assault of a Snohomish County worker took place inside Edirin Okoloko’s hotel room at Lake Chelan during the following incident.

We learned just yesterday that the nude photos of a county worker were stored and disseminated on Snohomish County Prosecutors county cell phone, making them public record and were disseminated to over 22 Snohomish County Prosecutors in June 2018.

The source said ” Edirin Okoloko , now Judge, was one of the county prosecutors involved in covering up the sexual assault and illegal dissemination of the county workers nude photos of female co-worker too intoxicated to consent.”

According to a source inside Snohomish County, it’s believed that deputy prosecutors had dinner and then when out for drinks. Thereafter, over ten Snohomish County prosecutors gathered in a hotel room on Lake Chelan.  Disgraced former Prosecutor Mark Roe firs lied to the public claiming that the hotel room belonged to a female prosecutor, but in fact, public records released yesterday document that the hotel room belonged to Edirin Okoloko, a judge at Snohomish County Superior Court.

But the story didn’t end there. Three prosecutors from Snohomish County, and one Snohomish County Superior Court Judge Edirin Okoloko ( who with no surprise used to be a prosecutor), committed countless acts covering up Snohomish County Prosecutor’s sexual assault,  and obstruction of justice, against an intoxicated female co-worker.

There is no doubt that Snohomish County Prosecutor were disseminating and passing around nude pictures of the woman without her consent and maintained them on Snohomish County cell phones.

Matt  Hunter and Robert Grant with two thumbs up as they partake in violating the civil rights of a Snohomish County co-worker who is nude and intoxicated above ( still waiting for public records to answer who the prosecutor is above texting from his cell phone in the upper right hand corner of the picture above; once known his name will be posted too).

On October 16, 2019, Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay, who a witness at the Lake Chelan party in June 2018, leading to arrest and conviction of one Snohomish County Prosecutor Christopher Dickenson, is now violating Washington State’s Rules of Professional Conduct and the civil rights of a intoxicated female co-worker by proclaiming to be the attorney of record for the four prosecutors, and Judge Okoloko, who assisted in covering up the sexual assault of a Snohomish County co-worker.


Last month, we caught Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay red-handed running his own private “or profit mediation company” right from Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office, and unlawfully using public offices and buildings, to operate his for profit mediation company.   If this isn’t unlawful/illegal/unethical enough, Snohomish County’s newest public officers Jennifer Sperline ( who was recently fired from the Prosecutor’s office for engaging in an affair with a co-worker) confirmed that Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay is now claiming to be the personal attorneys for three Prosecutors who unlawfully took and disseminated nude pictures of an intoxicated co-worker while at Lake Chelan in June 2018.

According to our counsel, attorneys who are witnesses cannot serve as an attorney in the matter for which they were a witness to.

Did Mr Reay forget that the woman who the four prosecutors who took a nude picture of is also a county employee?  Conflict, illegal, unlawful use of taxpayer funds to cover up felonies of employees, etc are just some questions to be raised.

But no need to fear for Prosecutor Sean Reay, because he is an outstanding member of the Washington State Bar Association’s Ethics Board. Pretty disgraceful.

Washington State is such a lovely place to raise children.





Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office covering up felonious conduct of its Prosecutors



In August 2018, the Gold Bar Reporter published the below article after public records confirmed that Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay is making some very questionable charges to Snohomish County taxpayers P-Cards ( purchase cards) including an air conditioner unit, dinners, household items, payments to court reporters, and is in fact unlawfully using public facilities for his own personal mediation company as outlined below.

MRSC states: 

In short, article 8, section 7 prohibits any local government entity from bestowing a gift or lending money, property, or the entity’s credit to a private party.


Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay appears to be the exception. See below article as he is running his “for profit mediation company” using county property and resources.


On October 16, 2019, Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay, who was at the Lake Chelan party in June 2018, that lead to arrest and conviction of one Snohomish County Prosecutor, is now violating Washington State’s Rules of Professional Conduct and the civil rights of a intoxicated female co-worker.


Now, if the below article which clearly documents that Prosecutor Sean Reay is running his own private “or profit mediation company” right from Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office, and unlawfully using public offices,  isn’t unlawful/illegal/unethical enough, yesterday Snohomish County’s newest public officers Jennifer Sperline confirmed that Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay is now claiming to be the personal attorneys for three Prosecutors who unlawfully took and disseminated a nude picture of an intoxicated co-worker while at Lake Chelan in June 2018.

According to our counsel, attorneys who are witnesses cannot serve as an attorney in the matter for which they were a witness to.

Did Mr Reay forget that the woman who the four prosecutors who took a nude picture of is also a county employee?  Conflict, illegal, unlawful use of taxpayer funds to cover up felonies of employees, etc are just some questions to be raised.

But no need to fear for Prosecutor Sean Reay, because he is an outstanding member of the Washington State Bar Association’s Ethics Committee.

Washington State is such a lovely place to raise children.

Misuse of Snohomish County facilities, resources and time

RE_ Arbitration

Not only is Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay being sued for racketeering – threatening to arrest citizens for trying to serve a court issued subpoena, lying on court documents, and trying to get citizens charged with crimes for exposing John E Pennington’s criminal abuse of children and women here in Washington State, now, public records reveal that Sean Reay is operating his own private company, an arbitration firm, misappropriating public funds, and misusing county offices/facilities, and falsifying his county time sheets.

According to County Council members, ” a salaried person is not allowed to hold a second job, nor are they allowed to use county resources for their own personal gain…”

Public records retrieved under RCW 42.56 ( Public Records Act) documents that Sean Reay signed a ” oath of office”, but he must have failed English at Norte Dame or simply believes himself to be above the laws of Washington State.

RCW 36.27.020, defines duties of a prosecutor:

(1) Be legal adviser of the legislative authority, giving it his or her written opinion when required by the legislative authority or the chairperson thereof touching any subject which the legislative authority may be called or required to act upon relating to the management of county affairs;
(2) Be legal adviser to all county and precinct officers and school directors in all matters relating to their official business, and when required draw up all instruments of an official nature for the use of said officers;
(3) Appear for and represent the state, county, and all school districts subject to the supervisory control and direction of the attorney general in all criminal and civil proceedings in which the state or the county or any school district in the county may be a party;
(4) Prosecute all criminal and civil actions in which the state or the county may be a party, defend all suits brought against the state or the county, and prosecute actions upon forfeited recognizances and bonds and actions for the recovery of debts, fines, penalties, and forfeitures accruing to the state or the county;
(5) Attend and appear before and give advice to the grand jury when cases are presented to it for consideration and draw all indictments when required by the grand jury;
(6) Institute and prosecute proceedings before magistrates for the arrest of persons charged with or reasonably suspected of felonies when the prosecuting attorney has information that any such offense has been committed and the prosecuting attorney shall for that purpose attend when required by them if the prosecuting attorney is not then in attendance upon the superior court;
(7) Carefully tax all cost bills in criminal cases and take care that no useless witness fees are taxed as part of the costs and that the officers authorized to execute process tax no other or greater fees than the fees allowed by law;
(8) Receive all cost bills in criminal cases before district judges at the trial of which the prosecuting attorney was not present, before they are lodged with the legislative authority for payment, whereupon the prosecuting attorney may retax the same and the prosecuting attorney must do so if the legislative authority deems any bill exorbitant or improperly taxed;
(9) Present all violations of the election laws which may come to the prosecuting attorney’s knowledge to the special consideration of the proper jury;
(10) Examine once in each year the official bonds of all county and precinct officers and report to the legislative authority any defect in the bonds of any such officer;
(11) Seek to reform and improve the administration of criminal justice and stimulate efforts to remedy inadequacies or injustice in substantive or procedural law;
(12) Participate in the statewide sexual assault kit tracking system established in RCW 43.43.545 for the purpose of tracking the status of all sexual assault kits connected to criminal investigations and prosecutions within the county. Prosecuting attorneys shall begin full participation in the system according to the implementation schedule established by the Washington state patrol.



Revised Code of Washington are very clear that Sean Reay has one job, Snohomish County Prosecutor. However, public records reveal that he is operating his own private arbitration firm misusing county facilities and while being paid by county taxpayers.

We also discovered he is falsifying Snohomish County time sheets, claiming that he is working for Snohomish County.

Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay is being sued for racketeering, gross 1983 violations (threatening to arrest citizens who engage in First Amendment protected activity).

Falsifying time sheets ( certifying your working as a Prosecutor when you are not), misusing taxpayer facilities for your own personal gain, and misappropriation of public funds for your own personal company, may not be his biggest problem in 2018.





Seattle Lawyer Lowers the Bar

Veteran’s Advocates Call for National Boycotts & Demand Disbarments  



Melinda and Evan Loeffler at their Seattle Law Practice

Seattle, WA from the Activist Post – August 5th, 2019 was only one court day after the tragic suicide of the 38-year-old head attorney for a Seattle-based veteran’s advocacy group that had actively worked to remove former U.S. Attorney for the Western District Annette Hayes.

Yet at 9:05 a.m. in room w-325 of Seattle’s King County Courthouse, Seattle evictions attorney Evan Loeffler stood in front of the judge’s bench, face-to-face with King County, WA Court Commissioner Henry Judson demanding the court refuse to postpone the case even one hour. In doing so, Evan Loeffler demanded the court deny the right to counsel for key members of a veteran’s advocacy group Loeffler is alleged to be illegally trying to evict from a home with a title dispute in federal court, according to extensive documents in the court record.

If Loeffler appeared to display an attitude of invincibility, it may have resulted from Melinda and Evan Loeffler’s lucrative career evicting thousands of unrepresented people – including defenseless veterans, widows, orphans, the disabled and terminally ill. The Loefflers are expected to gain national infamy within the legal profession for their efforts to fight postponing the case due to the suicide, according to the Seattle-based veterans’ advocacy group with a national mandate who refer to Loeffler’s action as an historic benchmark in legal practice.

“We researched the issue of an attorney dying in the middle of a case, and we couldn’t find a single example of any party objecting to a postponement. Not one, ever. Based on our research, what the Loefflers tried to do appears to be unprecedented in the history of the legal profession in the United States,” said a paralegal for the veteran’s group. “We are working with several veterans’ groups and several national media channels to expose what would seem to be among the lowest points in the history of the practice of law.”

Efforts to deny due process to veterans’ advocates immediately following a suicide appears to be the beginning of serious questions about the Loeffler’s law practice. Although the Loefflers have an ethical duty to make a good faith effort to resolve the property title dispute for the benefit of the Loeffler’s client, the veteran’s group emphatically state that the Loefflers have been unwilling to even discuss any manner of settlement, and appear to have acted contrary to their clients, the Kangs, interest in violation of the practice rules of the Washington State Bar Association – at a cost to the Kangs estimated by the veteran’s group in excess of $50,000 and rising.

One fact that does not appear in the court record is if the Loefflers have explained to their clients, the Kangs, the Loefflers’ past differences with a key member of the veteran’s group. In 2014, Evan Loeffler’s personal client, William “Luke” Lukoskie, the self-proclaimed tofu tycoon based on Vashon Island, WA was alleged in court records to have illegally nearly doubled the rent of a terminal cancer patient for having a live-in caregiver, which is rent-exempt under law. Lukoskie then threatened to shoot her professionally trained service dog, according to multiple legal declarations in the 2014 King County, WA court record and related allegations. With full access to all of these facts, Evan Loeffler agreed to evict the cancer patient contrary to his legal rights.

The family member who had fought the eviction – one of the same veteran’s advocates the Loefflers are now alleged to be illegally attempting to evict – made clear in the court record and related allegations evidence of Lukoskies’ predatory practices, including consistently renting his several properties to vulnerable women whom he then harassed and surveilled, sexual harassment of employees, opioid use, human trafficking, FDA violations at Lukoskies’ tofu manufacturing plant, tax evasion, and other criminal activity. Regardless of the law or the facts presented in the court record, Evan Loeffler aggressively litigated against the dying cancer patient and his family who died within days of the eviction.

According to witnesses, Loeffler was allegedly hysterical about both the evidence entered into the court record about his widely reviled client Lukoskie, and the several law enforcement investigations of Lukoskie that followed. According to allegations of the veterans’ group, the Loeffler’s ongoing eviction efforts are at their client’s, the Kang’s, expense, who may now be paying a potentially run-on bill for the Loeffler’s personal revenge. It is unclear if the Loefflers have disclosed this conflict to their clients, the Kangs, who have not been available for comment.

Evan Loeffler’s actions are in serious violation of the practice rules of the Washington State Bar and uniquely unprofessional. We intend to hold he and the staff of his law firm accountable and are organizing a national effort within the veteran’s community to call for a boycott of his client’s businesses as well as the organizations Loeffler’s affiliated with. We are coordinating efforts to disbar him and his staff attorneys involved in illegal conduct,” said one of the paralegals for the veteran’s group. “We ask that anyone with a business or social relationship with Melinda and Evan Loeffler please consider the actions against of the Loeffler’s law firm against veteran advocates, vulnerable people, and their practices. We are asking anyone with knowledge of any of the Loeffler’s or their law firm’s illegal or unethical practices to contact us. They may remain anonymous if they prefer.”

Regardless of their daily contributions to Seattle’s homeless crisis, the Loefflers would like you to know what great folks they are. On their law firm’s website, Evan Loeffler boasts of his Porsche, his fashion guidelines, and his sailing hobby. Ironically, Evan and Melinda Loeffler, who make a fortune evicting the defenseless, appear to want you to believe they are advocates for the homeless.

According to the dedicated web page for the self-defined philanthropists on Social Venture Partners/SVP, Melinda Loeffler is on the Community Outreach Committee for the nonprofit Washington Multi-Family Housing Association (WMFHA), and Evan is a member of the WMFHA Government Affairs Committee, involved in lobbying efforts to make eviction laws more aggressive. And he’s a Seafair clown.

Evan Loeffler’s clowning extends to his humor articles, depending on one’s definition of humor. Posted on his law firm’s website, topics include his opinion that his abuse of a child was amusing; a description of his apparently obsessive-compulsive collections practices; his opinion of law enforcement officers as “donut engorged;” and references to his own clients as “morons,” “retards,” and “imbeciles” – not the people he evicts, the property owners who retain his legal services. Notwithstanding the fact that many of his own clients are gay, Loeffler’s humor articles include both direct and thinly veiled homophobic references.

Perhaps most telling about the direction of Evan Loeffler’s moral compass, and the philosophical and psychological foundation of the Loefflers’ allegedly intoxicated abuse of power emboldened by decades of regularly litigating unopposed against thousands of vulnerable people from whom they make a killing evicting, may be found in Evan Loeffler’s own description of his experience hunting:


“Suddenly, I wasn’t a young lawyer blundering through the woods but a hunter. Waves of testosterone coursed through my body as I took aim at this obviously distraught, defenseless, fuzzy animal…I pulled the trigger.”

Evan Loeffler’s humor would unlikely be a surprise to the distraught and defenseless victims of the Loeffler’s eviction practices that make them homeless. Loeffler just pulls the trigger. Nor is his humor a surprise to housing advocate attorneys who regularly see Loeffler in court. The references “sadistic,” and “arrogant” were used consistently, as well as “the most abrasive [and/or] unprofessional attorney [they] have encountered in [their] careers.” Insiders testify that the entire Loeffler law firm is alleged to act strictly at the direction of Loeffler in lockstep with his ethical and moral example, potentially exposing clients and his own legal staff to significant liability.

Melinda and Evan Loeffler’s eviction practice is not limited to the thousands of people they evict through their Seattle, WA law firm supported by staffers Jeana K. Poloni, Brant M. Olson and Carinne E. Jaeger in addition to Melinda and Evan Loeffler. The Loefflers also broadcast their eviction tactics to Washington State’s legal profession through “how-to” online seminars with Lorman Education Services, in addition to live presentations and publications in affiliation with the King County and Washington State Bar Associations.

Contrary to their public relations efforts and apparent attempts to purchase social capital, Melinda and Evan Loeffler’s actions may provide more clarity as to their contributions to society. The Loefflers are alleged to have illegally and repeatedly attacked members of the Seattle veteran’s group, misrepresented key facts of the case, and ignored federal laws, according to allegations by members of the veterans’ group in court documents.

The late attorney for the veterans’ group who committed suicide was one of the occupants of the disputed property whom the Loefflers were trying to evict. As mentioned, the following court day after the suicide the Loefflers immediately attempted to demand the court deny any delay of the hearing and thus deny legal representation to the rest of the veteran advocates. The Loefflers continue to attempt to illegally evict the remainder of the veteran advocates to this day according to current court records.

Members of the veterans’ group are now actively seeking the disbarment of Loeffler and his legal staff – multiple complaints are being filed with the Washington State Bar Association. In addition, separate legal actions are being brought against the Loefflers and their client Kang for damages resulting from Loeffler’s practice violations and misrepresentations alleged by members of the veteran’s group in the court filings, according to their representatives.

Loeffler’s clients in the disputed property occupied by the veteran’s group are Rajinder S. Kang and his husband. Based in Canada, the Kangs appear to be somewhat less transparent in their practices than the Loefflers. Raj Kang works in customer service as a truck rental clerk at Ryder’s Oakville, Ontario branch near Toronto. On the surface, Mr. Kang appears to have transformed his job with the Ryder Truck Rental office into the purchase of several million dollars of Seattle-area properties – personally, not through a business.

Exactly what role if any the Loefflers and their legal staff may have played in the flow of millions of mysterious dollars flowing over the border from Canada is yet unclear. More clear is the fact that Loeffler & Co are aggressively working to facilitate the Kang’s business interests, together with the Kang’s Renton, WA-based realtor, Phillip Rodocker of John L. Scott who has aided the Kangs in the purchase of several properties in the Seattle area.

As the causes of homelessness are being endlessly discussed around the greater Seattle area with countless white papers being circulated, committee meetings about committee meetings, and endless hand-wringing, Melinda and Evan Loeffler will be driving their Porsche all the way to the bank and sailing off into the sunset as one of the state’s greatest profiteers of homelessness.

As unfortunate as the Loeffler’s actions against the veteran’s advocates are in this ongoing case, the big questions now being asked are: why are King County courts allowing the Loeffler’s extensively documented alleged illegal actions and defiance of federal law to go unchecked, how many innocent, defenseless people have Melinda and Evan Loeffler, together with their staff attorneys, stripped of their legal rights and made homeless, and most of all, why do the Washington State Bar Association’s Hearing Officers allow these people to continue to practice law?

Also called into question are Loeffler’s affiliations – why are the King County, WA, Washington State, and American Bars publishing Loeffler’s materials? How credible are the attorney ratings by AVVO and Martindale-Hubbard?

What is the basis for Washington Law and Politics Magazine’s “Washington Super lawyer” designation, as well as Seattle Metropolitan Magazine’s “Top 100 Lawyers rating?” Exactly what have they reviewed or checked?

Evan Loeffler may be a Seafair Clown, but when it comes to adding to Seattle’s legions of homeless – regardless of the methods, it appears – Melinda and Evan Loeffler are not clowning around.

For their part, the Director of the veteran’s group’s only comment is the same quote that may be found on their website: “The limits of tyrants are defined by the endurance of those whom they attempt to oppress.”

If you want to join them in their efforts to endure, they may be reached by email at info@vgpr.io, or through their website.

This is the first installment in a year-long investigative series titled “Your Courts, Their Fraud:” Next in the Series – Part Two: King County, WA Commissioner Henry Judson’s role in homelessness and guardianship/probate fraud.

It’s time for the people to take control of our legal system and start filing lawsuits against lawyers who file false statements with our courts.

In early September 2019, the Court of Appeals Division One gave those of us affected by fraudulent filings by lawyers a new avenue to file lawsuits for damages.  Long over due, and from the Loefflers conduct outlines herein, those damaged by their conduct may be seeking damages in a courtroom soon.
