Two people cited by a prominent Ninth Circuit Appellate Attorney as “Extremely dangerous serial criminals,” were
allegedly referred by Sarah Palin for employment at the University of Alaska.

_________________________________________________________________________________________________

Two people cited by a prominent Ninth Circuit Appellate Attorney as “Extremely dangerous serial criminals,” were allegedly referred by Sarah Palin for employment at the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF).

The Gold Bar Reporter, reporting on Fairbanks Alaska “What we’re talking about here is a modern-day Bonnie and Clyde couple – but far worse,” said John Scannell, a nationally regarded attorney in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

The referenced couple, John Pennington, and his wife Crystal Hill Pennington (nee Berg), are nationally infamous for their crime sprees in Washington State and across the country over the course of decades.

The Pennington’s “criminal Katrina,” as insiders refer to their legacy and ongoing criminal activity, has and continues to occur at vast public expense. The cost of the Pennington’s rampage includes the negligent homicide of 43 people, the rape and attempted murder of a five-year-old girl in Cowlitz County, WA, and hundreds of millions of dollars in theft and damage to public and private property.

“Given how much evidence about the Pennington’s criminal activity is available with even a minimal background check – or for that matter that is publicly available on the internet with a couple of keystrokes – isn’t a larger question, ‘Who told University of Alaska Fairbanks staff to bypass employment screening requirements to knowingly expose students to dangerous serial criminals, and Alaska taxpayers to massive financial liability?’” said the famous appellate attorney who is known to rarely charge fees for his high-profile public interest work.

The answer to the “who” question, according to allegations by UAF insiders, is Sarah Palin and friends. Ms. Palin has personally known the Penningtons for nearly 20 years, since 2003. “Insiders allege that John E. Pennington Jr. first met Sarah Palin when he was fundraising for George Bush in 2003, and she was in charge of Alaska’s piggy bank as Chair of the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission. Pennington used his fraudulently obtained position as Director of FEMA’s Region 10 – which includes Alaska – after submitting completely false credentials to get the job, to gain access to Palin,” said Journalist and Publisher Anne Block, J.D. “According to several sources, the Pennington’s went to great and constant efforts to ingratiate themselves to Palin because of her access to an ocean of Alaska’s money and her political and social connections to wealthy Republicans.”

After being terminated by FEMA in 2004 for theft of federal money, John Pennington fraudulently became a self-described “professor,” at Pierce College in Washington State. The Seattle Times was first to report on Pennington’s fraudulent academic credentials purchased for a flat rate of fifteen hundred dollars. Ms. Block provided Pierce College’s Chancellor, Michelle Johnson, their Human Resources Department, Legal Department, and the College’s Board with extensive evidence of Pennington’s falsified credentials and criminal history. No action was taken. She then published a story on her blog with links to criminal evidence. Nothing happened. Ms. Block, a J.D., journalist, meticulous researcher, and highly effective public advocate for decades, was mystified. “I’ve never seen this,” she said. “I knew that there had to be a reason for Pennington’s apparent invincibility. And there certainly is.”

Although the administration and Board of Pierce College took no action after receiving hundreds of pages of evidence from Ms. Block, John Edward Pennington Jr. then engaged in “extremely inappropriate behavior with both students and staff,” which finally resulted in his termination, according to a concerned member of Pierce College’s staff who contacted Ms. Block. The source also indicates that legal action against the college is now pending – precisely as Ms. Block had warned Pierce College’s administration and legal counsel would occur. 

“The Pennington’s are walking tornados of human suffering, misery, and public financial liability,” said attorney Scannell. “The most basic question is, how are the Pennington’s getting away with all of this? People are automatically disqualified for government employment for any one of their crimes, and yet they have committed dozens of both state and federal crimes, year after year, all of which is publicly documented.”

The answer, as Journalist and Publisher Ms. Block has carefully documented and concluded after both filing hundreds of public records requests and receiving testimony from dozens of insiders, is extortion. By extorting highly placed public officials with compromising pictures of sex acts, including those with underage victims of human trafficking, allegedly including Washington State’s Attorney General, Bob Ferguson, Judge Marlin Applewick,  Judge Michael Scott, and several other public officials, Mr. Pennington has been able to have both his prosecution suppressed and his criminal record erased. “This really is Seattle’s Epstein,” said Ms. Block.

Crystal Hill Pennington’s (Nee Berg) Crime Spree is

Spread Over Several States and a Term of Decades

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________

“Crystal Hill Pennington’s crimes are so vast and numerous, however, that even John Pennington’s extortion leverage isn’t powerful enough to clean up the metaphoric legal and criminal equivalent of the fallout from Chernobyl, Fukushima, and Three Mile Island combined,” according to Journalist Ms. Block. “Crystal Hill has unsuccessfully attempted to evade authorities and accountability through several relocations across the country and name changes; engaged in politically targeted serial promiscuity with dozens of highly placed public officials including former Washington State Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe ( fired for sexually harassing women and gays)and former Gold Bar Mayor Joe Beavers ( a convicted felon himself), many of whom contracted Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD) from her – according to Ms. Hill Pennington’s own public emails; forged court documents; stole $200,000 from the City of Gold Bar; served time in county corrections after three convictions fraud, and falsified countless job and academic applications. Regardless of her extensive criminal history, Crystal Hill Pennington has mysteriously gained employment in $100,000+ per year government jobs – all while somehow evading background checks at every juncture,” said the award-winning reporter.

“This included a job with King County, Washington, until we filed public records requests and repeatedly proved that her employment application was completely falsified, at which point she was finally fired. Ms. Pennington then recently fled to Alaska, under the apparent belief that her serial criminal husband can once again extort and/or leverage jobs for both of them, which he has done,” stated Ms. Block.

“We have solved the mystery as to how both John and Crystal Pennington continue to operate their confidence game,” said Ms. Block. “John Pennington has been using both extortion leverage and calling in favors to get he and his wife Crystal Hill Pennington high paying public jobs, as well as to prevent people at those public agencies from performing background checks. This is exactly what is alleged to have happened with Sarah Palin and friends getting the Pennington’s jobs at UAF, with insiders knowingly looking the other way about their seemingly endless criminal histories. Let me be clear, these people dont just have criminal records, it’s more like a double jacket album.”

“It will all come out in our investigation, in addition to the audits and investigations of several agencies we are filing with, by checking the call logs and emails of every public official involved, to determine who knew what, when, and yet allowed the Pennington’s state employment, regardless of all the evidence of criminal activity UAF administration had of both John and Crystal Pennington,” she stated. “We have filed public records requests on several public employees and are just getting started. None of us will stop until we find out which public officials, who are highly paid and trusted to protect public interest, have been aiding and abetting the continuation of their crime spree,” said Attorney Scannell. “By helping the Penningtons, every person involved has been, and is, committing state and federal crimes. UAF administration and even their counsel has looked the other way. Shouldn’t they be held accountable?”

“Crystal Hill Pennington is even trying to apply to the Alaska Bar for a law license, even though her ‘credentials’ are from an online ‘diploma mills,’ Eastern Oregon and Mitchell Hamlin, which automatically disqualified by the American Bar Association’s requirements for a valid law degree. And because of her criminal history, the Alaska Bar Assocation has told Block that her application has been flagged for lying.” Ms. Block emphatically stated.

Ms. Block is not the only journalist interested in the Penningtons, however. While major national and international media have become increasingly interested in the Gold Bar Reporter’s “Seattle’s Epstein” story over the past year, “more than ten” of the largest print and TV news venues in the nation have contacted Ms. Block and many of her witness informants within the past two weeks. “They are calling the story bigger than Epstein.”

“This story is gaining momentum with the mass and force of an Alaskan glacier, and the fury of an avalanche,” said Ms. Block.

“It looks like the careers of many Alaskan public officials are directly in its path.”

Chancellor White Refuses to Fire

Serial Criminal John Edward Pennington

Chancellor White’s Refusal to Fire Known Serial Criminal John Pennington
“Exposes Students to Imminent Danger, The University to Massive Financial
Liability and Loss of Federal Accreditation,” According to a Legal Expert

Fairbanks, AK Oct. 20, 2021. “It just doesn’t make sense,” said the famous Ninth Circuit Appellate attorney John Scannell. “By refusing to fire John Pennington, the Chancellor is putting the life of every student at risk.”

“I want to be very clear on what the implications are of John Pennington’s presence at the University of Alaska,” said the tireless public interest litigator, who is nationally recognized for his pro bono advocacy of civil rights. “The Chancellor is exposing the students to imminent danger, the university to massive financial liability and loss of federal accreditation,” he said. “It’s that simple.”

“Isn’t the larger question, ‘How did John Edward Pennington Jr., a man with a false credentials, a history of negligent homicide of 43 people, federal credit card fraud, rape and attempted murder of a five year old child, serial child molestation, and extreme domestic violence get hired by the University of Alaska?’” said the federal attorney. “Shouldn’t the Chancellor be thoroughly investigated by the Board of Regents, the Office of Governor, the Legislature, the State Auditor, the Alaska Education Foundation, and the Education Trust of Alaska?” asked the highly regarded litigator.

The Publisher of the Gold Bar Reporter, who has collected thousands of pages of evidence over a decade, agrees. “This is Seattle’s Epstein,” said legal scholar Anne Block, J.D. “He has been blackmailing high-ranking politicians for years with compromising pictures involving underage victims of human trafficking. Public officials include Court of Appeals Justice Marlin ApplewickSenator John Lovick, and Snohomish County Commissioner G. Geoffrey Gibbs, who remains on the bench regardless of his prior conviction of fraud by the Washington Attorney General’s Office.

There is no way that John Pennington could be legitimately employed in any public interest capacity,” said the Journalist and Publisher. “Any background check would have revealed a lifetime of criminal activity,” she said.

“Every single email, every phone call, and every meeting of the Chancellor should be exhaustively examined to determine what political pressure or favoritism may have resulted in Pennington’s hiring and the refusal to terminate Pennington’s employment,” said Ms. Block.

“The Chancellor is risking the health and safety of the students,” she said. “The people of Alaska need to know why. Right now.”

This is Part Two of the series “Seattle’s Epstein,” which now focus on the investigation of Chancellor White.

Washington State Attorney General Sara DiVittorio threatening lawyers, withholding public records, obstructing justice, running illegal background checks, all captured by Washington Court of Appeals Division One

UPDATE: We now have public records documenting that the Washington State Attorney General’s Office is operating the Washington State Bar disciplinary functions, giving legal advice to the Washington State Supreme Court Justices and the Governor,  Department of Health and Human Services,  GALs, Association of Washington Cities, County and local agencies, and Washington State Judges.  

Obviously, when the Court of Appeals Division One issued In re Dependency of AETH Snoho Superior behaving badly opinion about one of its own attorney generals, Sara DiVittorio, we were quite surprised, but lets face it, not every member of the judiciary is corrupt, as this case illustrates quite nicely. 

A must read, In re Dependency of AETH Snoho Superior behaving badly, but note that the official court file at Division One in Seattle is far worse – and those files will be posted soon. 

Late last week, it’s interesting to note that a clerk commissioner Richard Johnson decided to exempt the entire oral trial transcript from In re Dependency of AETH Snoho Superior behaving badly Why is simply describes that this case involved members Snohomish County Judiciary working behind the scenes to deny a mother and father their constitutional right to raise their children, and more interesting to note is that the foster parent here is a Snohomish County police officer, who according to the above decision, illegally used county resources to collect evidence to support her adoption of AETH.

For me, this sounds much like what Snohomish County public officials did to me back in 2009, and certainly supports my racketeering suit filed in  2016 02 19 Block v WSBA Amended RICO Complaint and RICO Statement

 


Sister Sara, the Fifth Mule, representing the 4th Branch of Government 

I met attorney Sara DiVittorio for the first time in 2010, when she represented the Washington State Attorney General’s Office involving a Gold Bar council member named Lonn Turner.  Mr Turner was also a Union member with the Department of Corrections (DoC) in Monroe.

At the time, I had no idea that Sara DiVittorio was sent to Snohomish County Washington, from the Attorney General’s Office, to obstruct our rights to access public records up here in Gold Bar, because a state employee, just like in the above case, ran illegal back grounds on citizens ( a federal crime) with the sole purpose of trying to extort the Gold Bar Reporter into not investigating public officials.

After the Gold Bar Reporter exposed Lonn Turner’s criminal conduct at the DoC, he lost his Union job, but Sara DiVittorio managed to get Turner a non-Union warehouse job to cover up his criminal racketeering conduct described herein.

According to council member Jay Prueher’s wife, Lonn Turner was able to use a high ranking member inside at the WA DoC to gather a spider of information on my family. Turner then disseminated illegally obtained medical, non-criminal history records, tax returns, Washington State Bar records, Veteran’s Administration records, and WA State unemployment filings, and disseminated those stolen files from DoC to various government officers including the City of Gold Bar in 2009.

The stolen files were a direct result of me hiring a public records lawyer to file suit against the City of Gold Bar seeking records relating to why the City of Gold Bar voted illegally in Executive Session to settle a tort claim a former water employee named Karl Marjerle filed against the City of Gold Bar.

Karl Marjerle was a lazy Gold Bar water employee who had sabotaged the City of Gold Bar’s water system, which amounted to an act of domestic terrorism.  Instead of reporting Karl Marjerle’s terrorism to the FBI and Department of Justice ( DOJ), Gold Bar’s 2009 governing body ( Lonn Tuner, Dorothy Croshaw, Richard Norris, Crystal Hill, Joe Beavers) voted to transfer thousands of dollars to Karl Marjerle, and further elicited two Snohomish County Prosecutors, Mark Roe and Sean Reay, into helping cover up federal crimes Karl Marjerle commmited against the City of Gold Bar.

As a resident of Gold Bar, I was appalled that any government official, who has a duty to report crimes, would cover up such a major crime such as Domestic Terrorism, so I requested all records relating to Karl Marjerle.

Instead of turning over public records, Gold Bar’s then Mayor Crystal Hill ( nee Berg) elicited the assistance of four lovers of hers from Snohomish County government, Mark Roe, Sean Reay, John E Pennington and Aaron Reardon.

According to council member Jay Prehuer, ” Crystal was a party girl being passed around like a blanket” and former Mayor Joe Beavers said three times in Executive Session ” Crystal Hill is a whore!”  But what Joe Beavers failed to tell the public is that Gold Bar’s former water employee Karl Marjerle knew a little too much about Crystal Hill’s theft of monies from Gold Bar exceeding $200.000.00 and the fact that Crystal Hill was using an alias as her name was really Crystal Berg.

Crystal Berg ( now using Crystal D. Pennington)  was arrested for bank fraud in North Carolina 2000, and in Snohomish County Washington in 2005. She plead guilty to both, and served time in a North Carolina jail.

Hill Bank Bank Fraud

In 2007, Crystal Hill met a three time married county employee named John Edward Pennington.  Mr. Pennington’s criminal rein of terror was detailed in past articles I have written on his pedophilias, kidnapping and rape of a five year girl from Cowlitz County Washington in 1992. At the same time John Pennington is just about ready to be charged with these crimes, he decides to run for uncontested Washington State Legislative seat in Cowlitz County, Washington.

While in Cowlitz County, John E Pennington meets Senator Jennifer Dunn, and Kelso City Attorney Michael Kenyon. Kenyon was in charge of the deciding whether to prosecute John Pennington for rape, attempted murder and kidnapping of a five year old girl from Cowlitz County.  But instead Michael Kenyon decided his moment had come to capitalize of pedophile John E Pennington’s crimes against a defenseless five year old child.

For his assisting now WA State legislator John E Pennington in covering up his sexual deviant behavior of pedophilia, Michael Kenyon started receiving millions of dollars of legal contracts from various government agencies in Washington State, including hundreds of municipal agencies, including Snohomish County, Washington.

So it was no surprise when I sought public records from the City of Gold Bar which involved John E Pennington illegally obtained files given to him by Gold Bar’s 2009 governing body, John E Pennington called attorney Michael Kenyon and his firm Kenyon Disend PLLC in Issauquah to bail him out of this mess.

In 2010 Gold Bar’s Mayor Joe Beavers made an agreement with Kenyon Disend to remove his felony records from the National Crime Information Center from his violent and drunk days in Arlington Texas. According to a source inside the family, Joe Beavers sexually assaulted a young woman in Texas.  Beavers had his own problems because John Pennington, via Rodney Rochan at the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office, had obtained Beavers criminal history records on Joe Beavers extorting him into misappropriating Gold Bar public monies to cover up his past criminal history.

But Snohomish County Prosecutors Sean Reay and Mark Roe had a plan. Remember Prosecutors Sean Reay and Mark Roe failed to report Gold Bar’s water employee Karl Marjerle to the DOJ/FBI for committing acts of Domestic Terrorism against the City of Gold Bar and I was exposing their racketeering conduct on the Gold Bar Reporter. The plan was this: Sean Reay and Mark Roe would illegally remove Crystal Danielle Pennington ( nee Berg), Joe Beavers, Bonnie Dierkson Jones, and John E Pennington criminal history records from the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) database.

Clear racketeering.

So when then Washington State Attorney General Rob McKenna learned this his employee and SAAG Sara DiVittorio, and other prosecutors from Snohomish County government had committed racketeering crimes, Rob McKenna was left with two choices, either report them or cover up it.

Washington State Attorney General, and now attorney, Rob McKenna chose the wrong path, and its now been ten years that the City of Gold Bar along with Washington State’s Attorney General’s Office has been refusing to come clean about why the City of Gold Bar should continue to allow public resources to be used to continue the cover up of crimes committed by a small number of public officials.

Since 2013, Washington State Attorney General Bob Fergusson has continue funding the Enterprise Rob McKenna started as described herein.

So last week when the Washington Court of Appeals Div One issued scathing opinion regarding the criminal conduct of WA State SAAG ( who represents many public agencies here in Washington), Sara DiVittorio, many of us open government supporters here in Washington were ecstatic to learn that Sara DiVittorio will finally be disbarred for her criminal conduct as outlined in the In re Dependency of AETH Snoho Superior behaving badly.

After hearing from various sources, a few of us decided to go down to the Court of Appeals to see the entire file, and what we discovered is that the Court of Appeals downplayed how criminal SAAG Sara DiVittorio’s conduct. Conduct clearly outlined and replicated in my RICO suit filed in US Federal District Court in Seattle.

See Block v WSBA et al  2016 02 19 Block v WSBA Amended RICO Complaint  

and supporting RICO Statement RICO Statement 

What’s most interesting to note here is that not one person denied any of the allegations I made in this above suits, and had I had an honest federal court judge not associated with the WSBA and his former employer’s office ( King County),  my case would have weeded out criminals like SAAG and County Prosecutors in 2012 long before Sara DiVittioro would have been allowed to thrust her crimes upon a poor defenseless African American child and her parents.

If my readers haven’t read the Washington Court of Appeals Decision in RICO Statement and In re Dependency of AETH Snoho Superior behaving badly

please consider filing WSBA complaints as no one should ever have their professional licenses stolen or their children stolen because Snohomish County, the Washington State Attorney General’s Office and RICO defendants who decided to cover up for pedophiles and wife beaters like John E Pennington, as well as politically connected convicted felons like Crystal Hill Pennington and Joe Beavers cover up liability by hiding the criminal racketeering conduct of its public officials.

To those of you involved in helping stop Human Trafficking as outlined in In re Dependency of AETH Snoho Superior behaving badly many of us who are now well on our way to extracting criminals from our state agencies are true American heroes worthy of Washingtonians respect.

 

Here’s excerpts of the In re Dependency of AETH Snoho Superior behaving badly records retrieved at the Washington Court of Appeals in the above case.

It’s time to officially ask the Voters of Washington to place the Washington State Bar Association into a state licensing agency and out of the hands of the private organization who by the way is being controlled by the same Washington State Attorney Generals who committed crimes as outlined in this article.


Here’s a public records showing the Washington State Attorney General’s is really operating the private WSBA Organization misappropriating public monies in support of a private organization such as the WSBA and handpicking SAAGs as insiders inside RCW mandated GAL programs which are supposed to be independent.

FYI—we are very excited to be able to try this out. According to Judge Clark and Paul Sherfey it is “very likely” to be re-funded through 2008 on Court Improvement Project funds and then made a permanent part of the court budget. Pass it on!
