King County, Washington, confirmed that Crystal Hill Pennington has been terminated for filing fraudulent application to obtain employment

Seattle: August 28, 2020,

A King County insider told the Gold Bar Reporter that ” Crystal was fired for gross misrepresentations on her application for employment.

According to the Gold Bar Reporter’s counsel ” it’s a felony to file false statements and false educational credentials to obtain government employment.”

Crystal Hill Pennington, a twice convicted bank frauder

Fraud, forgery and lies on job applications, Crystal Hill Pennington bringing in the new year, the Pennington family way

John Edward Pennington Jr., and Crystal Daniel Hill Pennington (nee Berg) never cease to amaze me with the level of fraud both have perpetuated upon the taxpayers of Washington State.

From domestic terrorism, fraud, forgery, harassment, and now filing false academic and employment credentials to entice King County in hiring Ms. Hill Pennington for a position she has no educational or employment experience.

But what’s new for the Penningtons’ rein of criminal conduct the Gold Bar Reporter has uncovered and reported on for 15 years here in Washington State.


Between 2015 to 2017, Crystal Hill Pennington ( nee Berg) along with John Edward Pennington Jr. attempted to obtain countless “restraining orders” against Anne Block, the Gold Bar Reporter. The reason was simple: Ms. Hill Pennington filed countless criminal complaints claiming that she was unable to find employment as a result of our news reports on her extensive criminal history.

In Pierce County, on April 27, 2017, a Washington State Judge held a 3.5 hour hearing, at which time, the Gold Bar Reporter presented copies of Ms. Hill Pennington criminal history records documenting that she is a twice convicted bank frauder, once in North Carolina where she served time in jail, and once in Snohomish County Washington where she plead guilty.

Ms. Hill Pennington uses several aliases, and aka as Crystal Berg and Crystal Pieneiche.

For over ten years, Ms. Hill Pennington ( nee Berg) and John Edward Pennington Jr. operated a foe website titled the ” Sky Valley Chronicle.” Public records confirm John E Pennington Jr did this right from his office inside Snohomish County Department of Emergency Management. Pennington was fired for his criminal harassment in late 2016.

Crystal Hill Pennington was unemployed from February 2010, to April 2020. She was fired from every job she ever held which included Snohomish County Community Transit, and attorney Mark Weiss’s office. Inside Community Transit Ms. Hill Pennington was caught stealing ( excess of $300) and lying on her job application. Because Ms. Hill Pennington’s mother was a long term employee at Community Transit, they agreed not to criminally prosecute in 2002.

In 2010, Ms. Hill Pennington was also fired from attorney Mark Weiss’s office after he caught her practicing law without a license, writing and serving divorce motions for her new lover, John E Pennington Jr, in King County Washington, Laughlin v Pennington.

After Attorney Mark Wiess fired Crystal Hill for the crime of practicing law without a license, she applied for unemployment benefits lying about the reason why she was fired. The WA Security Division received a fraud report from another resident, and after a 90 day investigation, Ms. Hill Pennington was found to have falsely filed for unemployment benefits and court ordered to pay back over $6000.00 she stole. The State’s court filed in King County where Ms. Hill Pennington resides.

After Ms. Hill Pennington (nee Berg) plead guilty to bank fraud in Snohomish County, she was appointed as a Gold Bar city council member by another fraudster, Colleen Hawkins. Ms. Hawkins had her owns problems of using her husband’s security clearance inside Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office to run illegal background checks on citizens. Ms. Hawkins used her husband, a Sheriff Officer, to run illegal backgrounds on her opponents just before the election. What Ms. Hawkins found was a juvenile criminal conviction of her opponent from another state, and then disseminated the illegally obtained information via Gold Bar city emails. The only problem for Ms. Hawkins was that the criminal history she illegally gathered on her opponent was from a state that “seals” juvenile records.

As a twice convicted criminal, Ms. Hill Pennington ( nee Berg) was compromised, thus an ally to shady people like Coleen Hawkins. People who should be in prison for their crimes. Instead, Ms. Hill changed her name from Crystal Berg to Crystal Hill and ran for Mayor.

According to the Washington State Auditor’s 2012 Report, during Ms. Hill Pennington’s tenor as Mayor there is ” $200,000 missing from the City, and not employee can tell me where it went.”

In July 2008, Ms. Hill and a water employee named Karl Majerle were caught illegally using the City’s gas card for their personal vehicles. Majerle was the only prosecuted for the theft, because Ms. Hill Pennington’s past criminal history of bank fraud convictions, Association of Washington Cities was unable to bond her thus they had every incentive to cover up her crimes. Mr. Majerle knew about Ms. Hill Pennington’s criminal bank fraud convictions and extorted her into not pursuing criminal charges.

But then along came the Gold Bar Reporter, who has written extensively on Ms. Hill Pennington’s fraud; so much so that Ms. Hill Pennington filed a criminal complaint against the Gold Bar Reporter in 2016 claiming ” I cant find work because of Ms. Block’s blog.”

Joe Beavers became Mayor after Ms. Hill Pennington’s lengthy five year extra-martial affair with a forth time married man, John Edward Pennington Jr. For four years, Crystal Hill harassed his wife Ann, and in one extramarital affair with a married man, Fleshman Cooper ( the father of Hill’s child), Ms. Hill was found guilty of criminal harassment and ordered to stay away from Mr. Cooper, his wife and their child.

Fleshman Cooper’s ex-wife said ” Crystal Hill Pennington was abusing my child. I found bruises on my child, and brought charges against Crystal for criminal harassment . . . ” What Ms. Cooper didn’t know is that Crystal Hill was sleeping with several Snohomish County Sheriff’s Officers, one county Judge Joe Wilson, and three county prosecutors.

After siting by watching countless extra marital affairs committed by John E Pennington, with whores and prostitutes, John E Pennington’s marriage ended, and his mistress, Crystal Hill, who Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe Beavers said ” Crystal Hill is a whore! ” three times in Executive Session, moved in with John E Pennington in 2009.

At the time, Crystal Hill moved in with Pennington, her house was foreclosed on for failing to make a single house payment, and John E. Pennington Jr. was still married to Ann when Ms. Hill Pennington moved in with him.

“Birds of the same feathers flock together as do pigs and swine.’

In late 2012, Block v City of Gold Bar, then Gold Bar Mayor Joe Beavers was deposed and in that deposition we learned that Joe Beavers was a convicted felon from Arlington Texas. Joe Beavers sexually assaulted a female inside a bar and when a man tried to defend her, a drunkin fight broke out. Joe Beavers plead guilty to assault and was sentenced to 10 days in jail, ordered into anger management classes, and served 3 years probation.

Joe Beavers application to become a Professional Engineer was declined as a result of his felony conviction.

In late 2016, John E Pennington Jr. was fired from Snohomish County Department of Emergency Management after he was caught moonlighting on the county’s dime ( operating his own company and not paying WA State business tax) , operating and having the County taxpayers pay the Penningtons’ blog titled the Sky Valley Chronicle, and after his dereliction of his official county duties resulted in the deaths of 43 residents in the Oso mudslides.

In 2009, Dr. Hedricks from King County Washington labeled John Edward Pennington Jr. “a sociopath with no empathy for human life.” John Pennington was hospitalized at Oregon State hospital after he violently assaulted his prior fiancé in Oregon. As part of his plea deal, claiming he had a mental defect i.e. autism, John Edward Pennington Jr. would undergo mental health confinement at Oregon State Hospital instead of serving time in prison.

For six months John E Pennington Jr. filed false claims that the Gold Bar Reporter was anonymously cyber-stalking him and his family, when in fact, the Gold Bar Reporter has openly posted and appeared inside the press as Anne Block.

Fact is, the Penningtons were cyber-stalking on behalf of Snohomish County Prosecutors’ Office on a foe website titled ” The Sky Valley Chronicle” and once Attorney General Bob Fergusson learned about this – after a lawsuit was filed against the Sky Valley Chronicle – he shut them down by saying ” If you don’t stop harassing’s Block on the Chronicle, we are going to let her proceed for defamation against you.”

For years, John Pennington bragged that he was a member of an organization that vowed to protect him if he were ever sued. At the time, we had no idea that Association of Washington Cities has been covering up for pedophiles inside our government offices. Public officials have known to have trafficked underage girls and/or boys for sex include Court of Appeals Justice Marlin Applewick, King County Superior Court Judge Michael Scott, Washington State Bar Association Lead Counsel Doug Ende, and Snohomish County Commissioner G. Geoffrey Gibbs.

After the Judge held that Anne Block was a member of the press, denying the Penningtons’ request to stop our news reports on their fraud and harassment, Crystal Hill Pennington teared up, putting on a very poor acting stunt, trying to get the Judge to reconsider his decision. The Judge DENIED Ms. Hill Pennington’s attempts to restrain the Gold Bar Reporter as “Unconstitutional Restraint against Free Speech and the Free Press.”

The real reason why Pierce County denied the restraining order because the Penningtons’ were caught forging court records. Both were found liable for whiting out court service documents, and successfully sued as a result in Block v Penningtons, March 2017, King County Superior Court.

In late 2016, Ms. Hill Pennington filed a police report with Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office claiming she couldn’t find work as a result the Gold Bar Reporter’s news reports. So, as you can imagine, we were quite surprised that a twice convicted bank frauder, a person who filed fraudulent unemployment claims, was in fact found liable for not paying business tax ( King County against the Penningtons Education Services Inc.), and who was also found liable of forgery ( March 2017, Block v Pennington, King County), would be receiving any kind of government job. Especially since we already know Ms. Hill Pennington’s bank fraud convictions make her ineligible for King County, state and federal employment.

In April 2020, acting on false information Ms. Hill Pennington submitted in her job application and resume, King County hired her. This caused us to request public records involving Ms. Hill Pennington ( nee Berg) from King County. Late last week, we got some answers back learning that Ms. Hill Pennington is guilty of fraud once again, but this time in King County Washington.

Ms. Hill Pennington falsely claimed on a King County job application that she was in a Juris Doctorate ( JD Law) program ( she was DENIED entrance into an accredited JD law program because she lied on her application), she worked for various states including Maryland ( during time period where she filed a criminal complaint against the Gold Bar Reporter claiming she couldn’t find work because of our news reports on her crimes), she failed to disclose her criminal history of bank fraud convictions, and she also lied claiming that she was the City Manager for the City of Gold Bar.

According to City of Gold Bar Mayor Bill Clem, the City has never had a city manager.

Criminal complaints against Ms. Hill Pennington are pending and King County employee told the Gold Bar Reporter that Ms. Hill Pennington is being postured for lying on her job application.

Ms. Hill Pennington has never sued the Gold Bar Reporter, but we did sue her and John E Pennington Jr. for harassment, abuse of the process, and forgery. ( Block v Penningtons, King County Superior Court, March 2017) Ms. Hill Pennington and John Edward Pennington Jr. were found liable for committing forgery, abuse of the process, and harassment against the Gold Bar Reporter for reporting the truth on their rein of terror for the last decade.

For Snohomish County government note this report was published from outside the State of Washington. This is mentioned because a source called the Gold Bar Reporter and said ” Ms . Hill Pennington was placed on administrative leave pending a criminal investigation into her false filings via electronic means ( according to our counsel amounts to racketeering), by a non-state investigator. She was steaming and threatening Snohomish County prosecutors and Sheriff’s Office to exposé all of them if they didn’t do something.”

The source who we labeled ” fed up” told the Gold Bar Reporter that Crystal Hill also slept with Prosecutors Adam Cornell, Sean Reay, and Mark Roe. In fact, the source said ” everyone knew Crystal Hill Pennington was having gang banging parties with many county employees for years.” It’s no wonder why former Gold Bar Mayor Joe Beavers declared in Executive Session ” Crystal Hill is whore! Crystal Hill is a whore! Crystal Hill is a whore!” and former Gold Bar council member Jay Prueher said ” Crystal Hill was a party girl.”

The Gold Bar Reporter is an award winning journalist and has been reporting on government officers corruption for a decade. What is happening in Minnesota as well as major cities throughout America is just a symptom of why persons like Crystal Hill Pennington and John Edward Pennington Jr. who have extensive criminal history are placed inside government offices like the officer who murdered George Floyd.

National Public Radio recently did a story about how the insurance company is still insuring bad state actors, covering up liability they created and allowing them to keep their jobs. Minnesota, like WA State, also uses Lloyds of London as it primary insurer of public employee’s civil and criminal misconduct.

The only issue I take with NPR story is they forgot to mention that Lloyds of London syndicates like Association of Washington Cities and Counties are insuring these people with no regard for citizens.

Three boys make allegations of child sexual abuse against King County Superior Court Judge Michael Scott

Over the last few months three victims contacted the Gold Bar Reporter, alleging that King County Superior Court Judge Michael Scott sexually abused them while he served as a Deacon Grace Episcopal Church , located in Bainbridge Island, Washington.

From 1999 to 2005, three boys claimed that King County Superior Court Judge Michael Scott would groom them by buying them gifts, like candy and pornographic magazines, and often would supply marijuana and booze.

All three boys were underage at the time Michael Scott sexually assaulted them, and all three were members of the same church where Michael Scott heavily influenced that parish.

Michael Scott came under our radar as corrupt after public records reveal that he served as a Special Assistant Prosecutor for King and Snohomish County, received over 22 Million from Lloyds of London syndicates at Association of Washington Cities, worked as a Special Assistant Attorney General (SAAG) and was a paid speaker for the Washington State Bar Association without disclosing his pecuniary interests with the State of Washington and the County governments before making decisions on hundreds of cases involving his contractors (AG, Counties, AWC, WSBA).

In 2018, King County Superior Court Judge Michael Scott also heard and decide a case against a few young activist, siding with his former employer, the Washington State Attorney General’s Office, in

https://crosscut.com/2018/08/young-climate-activists-will-take-suit-higher-court

Our counsel stated that under Gonzales ruling which was handed down from the Washington Court of Appeals Division One, no judge can hear or decide a case who served as an AG, SAP, or AWC contractor when the Judge’s former employer i.e. the Counties, State of Washington, WSBA, and/or AWC are representing any party.

In civil and criminal cases, Judge Michael Scott made decisions 198 cases involving his employer/ contractor King and Snohomish Counties, AWC, AG’s Office, and the WSBA.

With no surprise, Judge Michael Scott nor his church denies that Scott molested three boys while he served as a Deacon at Grace Episcopal Church.

Is this the best that Governor Inslee could do by assigning a child molester to an open Superior Court seat?

Judge Michael Scott was contacted for comment but refused.

Snohomish County, WA, prosecutors personal meetings with judges to fix cases

A few months ago, the Gold Bar Reporter reported on the same prosecutor, Joseph Genster, fixing cases with US Federal Judge Ricardo Martinez, in the following story,

Snohomish County Prosecutor has direct line to US Federal Court Judge

A couple of months ago, we noticed that someone from Mercedes, Texas came onto the Gold Bar Reporter at the exact same time, looking at the same articles, as someone from Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office.

A few years ago, we started researching several judges, including United State Federal District Court, Seattle, Ricardo Martinez, and noticed that he still has family in Mercedes Texas.

What should be noted is that the Gold Bar Reporter has two pending lawsuits in Western Washington Federal District Court, Seattle Division.  Judge Ricardo Martinez has self assigned himself to each and every case involving Gold Bar Reporter Anne Block.

Anne Block is not the only litigant suing the Washington State Bar Association (WSBA) that Judge Ricardo Martinez has self assigned himself to, Attorney Steve Eugster sued the WSBA, and Judge Martinez also self assigned himself to his case.

Noticing Mercedes Texas and Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office on the Gold Bar Reporter on the same day at the same time, looking at exactly the same article, these facts resulted in a public records request to Snohomish County government seeking three prosecutors’ telephone records, Joseph Genster, Jason Cummings,  and Snohomish County’s newest racketeering thug, Adam Cornell.

We really didn’t believe that we’d get anything. But we did – and our hunch was correct, Judge Ricardo Martinez and Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office has been engaging in direct exparte communication.

Judge Martinez’s telephone number is 206-370-8999 and is posted below.  

Click to see Snohomish County Prosecutor Joseph Genster and US Federal Court Judge Ricardo Martinez’s caught in exparte communication.caputured in public records.

Judge Ricardo Martinez even left a two minute voice message that the County has refused to turned over.  Why,  can best be explained as major corruption i.e case fixing and exparte communication.  As such, Snohomish County was notified that a lawsuit will be filed forcing disclosure of our telephone records.

Why hasn’t the Chief Judge of the 9th Circuit, Judge Sidney Thomas, investigated US Federal Court Judge Ricardo Martinez for corruption?

Now, public records also confirm Snohomish County Prosecutor Joseph Genster is once again caught via public records having exparte meetings with Judge Fair, a judge inside Snohomish County District Court who has been assigned to maliciously prosecute another reporter

Douglas Fair, Snohomish County District Court, public records confirm Judge having exparte meetings with County Prosecutor Joseph Genster, who according to our counsel violates the Separation of Powers Doctrine.

Separation of powers is a political doctrine originating in the writings of Charles de Secondat, Baron de Montesquieu in The Spirit of the Laws, in which he argued for a constitutional government with three separate branches, each of which would have defined abilities to check the powers of the others. This philosophy heavily influenced the writing of the United States Constitution, according to which the LegislativeExecutive, and Judicial branches of the United States government are kept distinct in order to prevent abuse of power. This United States form of separation of powers is associated with a system of checks and balances.
