“Exposing those who abused our children inside Kiwanis Club’s Ok Boys Home sexual abuse scandal”

Sexual abuse is a serious allegation.  Just as the Gold Bar Reporter did in exposing pedophile John Edward Pennington Jr., we began researching, sifting through countless public files inside the Washington State Digital Archives, reading files and list of victims and perpetrators, and contacted victims and perpetrators alike before publishing.

The Problem for John Edward Pennington Jr. is simple: we obtained court documents, in case he was deposed, he admitted that he was kick out of a church in San Diego California after two boys during a church camping trip said ” John Edward Pennington Jr. stripped naked and asked us to jerk him off.”‘

Just like Ted Bundy, John Edward Pennington Jr has left Washington State, and is now on the campus of University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF).  We have Alaska’s former Governor Sara Pallin to thank for helping John E Pennington get his fraudulently obtained online degrees, he paid a $1500 flat rate for, inside UAF.  A relationship John E Pennington brags he has engaged in as a extramarital affair while she was married.

John Edward Pennington Jr. refused comment.

This story is centered around those got away with raping our children, mainly politicians from Olympia.


As most of my readers know is, the Gold Bar Reporter is nonpartisan, if you’re a pedophile, a domestic abuser, or a corrupt political official, we are going to report on it.  Whether you’re a Republican or Democratic, is of no concern.

Interesting to note for our readers, the Boys Home in Lincoln Nebraska, continuously searches our website for ” John Edward Pennington Jr.” For those of you who don’t remember the Boys Homes was the center of the largest sex abuse scandal in US history titled “the Franklin Sex Abuse Scandal.”  The Franklin Sex Abuse scandal involved mainly political officials who were allowed to sexually abuse our children in exchange for political favors by federal officials.

An acquittance, who was also  a victim of sexual abuse, one time said to me ” My stepdad sexually abused me. He was an employee of Lockheed Martin.  He would often bring friends home to rape me too.  Not sure where they came from… just seems to me that pedophiles know who each others are. Must be some kind of high sign or key words that pedophiles use to identify themselves with other pedophiles.”


What ever happened to the victims of the Ok Boys Home?” 

Between 1985 to 1994, the State of Washington, employed and licensed Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) social workers, who sexually abused Washington State’s foster children inside the Ok Boys Home.

The Ok Boys Ranch was operated by the Kiwanis Club, who were political officials, including uncontested Washington State House of Representative and Republican from Cowlitz County, John Edward Pennington Jr, a  man convicted of fraud by Washington State Attorney General’s Office, G. Geoffrey Gibbs, Senator Marlin Applewick ( who our readers would be happy to know is now a Court of Appeals Division One Justice), and Senator Hatfield ( who son was arrested hog tying and raping his step brother; learned behavior).

Over a period of 23 years, residents of the O.K. Boys Ranch experienced a shocking multitude of incidents involving abuse, neglect, sexual assault, gang rapes, and group beatings by other boys and staff.  These incidents, when documented, were routinely dismissed by DSHS, Children and Family Services and numerous review boards.

An example of one serious incident, one witness said ” On the evening of June 14, 1992, five boys from the Ranch broke into a nearby house, stole alcohol and brought it back to their rooms. Upstairs, after drinking the booze and sharing it with two more boys, the group of seven disrobed.” These children’s were being supervised by DSHS counselors, and our very own Snohomish County Prosecutor  Adam Cornell was one such on site counselor who was paid to supervise. Adam Cornell was under 21 himself at the time.

The resulting “orgy,” as everyone later called it, lasted through the night. Staff members, required by law and contract to provide 24-hour supervision, broke up the scene twice but didn’t keep the boys separated. Sex continued until the morning. The youngest victim was 11 year of age.

In 1989, then the OK Boys Ranch came up for license renewal at DSHS, Washington State Auditors discovered  that finances were completely unacceptable, with documented Kiwanis Club over-billing and double-billing of state money for services.  For the first time,  the State of Washington accused the Kiwanis Club of a  pattern of not reporting incidents of abuse, sexual assaults, gang raping, sexual gratification and sexual assaults’ by DSHS employees inside the Ok Boys Home.

According to the State of Washington, not one employee,  reported sexual abuse of our children to the police, DSHS or the boys’ parents, as required by law. The state auditor reviewer deemed the OK Boys Ranch “NOT IN COMPLIANCE” with state regulations.  An understatement; public records from Olympia document this was done to limit liability to the state of Washington who failed to protect our children.

Despite this scathing audit of 1989, the OK Boys Ranch remained open, given a temporary license for 6 months to bring the home up to state standards and the Kiwanis Club was allowed to “repay”  the taxpayer money stolen through Kiwanis Club’s over-billing scam costing the taxpayers over $100,000.00.

Due to pressures from the State of Washington’s Risk Management services lead by the direction of the Washington State Attorney General’s Office, mainly its head counsel, Stewart Estes and Rebecca Roe ( yes the big sister of disgraced former Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe), the Kiwanis Club was issued a temporary license, and at Attorney General Stewart Estes’s direction, that agreement was abruptly modified into a full license with a sweet heart deal allowing the Kiwanis Club to evade criminal charges of the theft of $100,000 in owed double billing funds, reduced to a mere $6,903 with a promise to take on two extra boys at no extra charge.

Allegations against Estes were lodged as far back to the Boys Home story, a story were are working on.  Our readers should be happy to know that Attorney Estes now works for Keating, Buckling, and McCormack Inc ( also assigned as Special Assistant Attorney Generals and Special Assistant Prosecutors for Snohomish County – more this story soon) assigned by Snohomish County Prosecutor Adam Cornell.

With no surprise, the Kiwanis Club breached its agreement, and failed to take in any additional children.  

By 1996, the Kiwanis Club‘s OK Boys Ranch was finally shut down, after numerous lawsuits over abuse began. over ten years after the first allegation of abuse was lodged against Kiwanis inside the Ok Boys Home.

It all started when Thurston County Police Department received a complaint against the Ok Boys Home in Olympia.  According to a victim, one such young counselor inside the Ok Boys Home was Snohomish County Prosecutor Adam Cornell aka “Adam Stubbs.”

The Gold Bar Reporter contacted Adam Cornell after receiving a credible tip from a victim of the OK Boys Ranch.  The victim filed suit, and that complaint is still open on ongoing allegations of misconduct by Adam Cornell brought rise to our interest in “what ever happened to the victims of the Ok Boys Home” story.

Adam Cornell said the Edmonds Beacon, “My mom was an alcoholic and drug addict. Plain and simple,” he said. “My father was also an alcoholic, and used to beat the crap out of my mom. My dad left us when I was 5, and I never saw him again.”

“Like many children placed in foster care, it was not easy for us to keep in touch, but we did, and our relationship has endured as adults,” Cornell wrote on his Facebook page last year.

In 2001, Cornell graduated from Lewis & Clark Law School College in Portland.

Cornell’s entry into Snohomish County law came in 2001 when he became a judicial clerk for Snohomish County Superior Court Judge Ellen Fair, an Edmonds resident who recently retired in disgrace after she was caught fixing cases for Snohomish County and Washington State Attorney General’s Office as “risk management.’

Judge Fairs’ crimes against Washingtonians was well documented inside Snohomish County corruption scandal involving the theft of foster children by Snohomish County employees for dollars. 769642 In re the Welfare of AH Amended MAR

Judge Fair resigned shortly before the Court of Appeals Division One issued the above scathing decision in The AETH case.  A case that wasn’t assigned to Judge Fair, but one that she worked behind the scenes to corrupt by appearing inside a judicial proceeding, in an effort to transfer custody of a 4 year old child to a Snohomish County Sheriff Officer in spite of no finding of abuse against the biological parents.

Adam Cornell by all accounts was a protégé of corrupt Judge Ellen Fair, in Cornell’s own words “She pointed out a place on Pine Street that was for rent,” Cornell said, “so we moved from Silver Lake down to Edmonds. It was Ellen who really is responsible for bringing me to Edmonds. And the work in Superior Court put me in contact with people in the office, where I made connections. People knew Ellen and my work, and I’d like to think that people thought I had a good head on my shoulders and a good temperament for the work.”

With connections to corrupt Judges like Ellen Fair and Judge Janice Ellis, who we recently caught “fixing cases” against the accused, it didn’t take long for Cornell to become a deputy prosecuting attorney from 2002 through 2018.

During that time, ” Cornell worked inside the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Seattle as a special assistant attorney, prosecuting federal drug trafficking, firearms, and financial crimes in direct violation of the laws of Washington State which prohibit a prosecutor from serving in any other function other than that of a prosecutor.”

In 2019, several employees inside the Prosecutors Office filed complaints against disgraced Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe of sexual assault and discrimination. One such accuser was Chief of Operations Bob Lenz, who claimed that Mark Roe was the perpetrator of a  hostile workplace filled discrimination mainly targeting women and gays.

In 2019, Bob Lenz filed suit in King County Superior Court against Snohomish County.

The lawsuits allege allegations during Adam Cornell’s assignment in charge of the criminal division, but he either has early stages of dementia or is simply covering up for a sexual deviant named Mark Roe.

Cornell said “Mr. Lenz’s claims are focused upon the comments and other conduct of my predecessor, and frankly describe conduct that is highly inappropriate in any workplace,” Cornell wrote. “I consider it particularly important that a prosecuting attorney’s office, which the public looks to for the enforcement of the laws, must operate at the highest level of professionalism and respect.”

Mr. Cornell failed to mention that Bob Lenz’s allegations also involved Cornell’s conduct of discriminating against persons over the age of 40.  The US Supreme Court held that persons over the age of 40 are protected class.  A class that Adam Cornell either failed or missed inside Constitutional Law while at Lewis & Clark Law School.

 


Over the last year, we spent hundreds of hours sifting through public records, newspapers, and Washington State archives before publishing.   What really caught out attention was the fact that then Attorney General Christine Gregoire never charged a single state employee with sexual abuse of our children, not even a misdemeanor charge of failure to protect our children while iside the OK Boys Homes.

We have a lot of file to publish, so stay tuned, we are going to posted articles, and reports, issued by the state itself, and complaints. But first, we need to redact names of the victims before publising the files.

 In the meantime, we note that Snohomish County Adam Cornell is holding true to his promise to sexual deviant and digarced Prosecutor Mark Roe that he would “carry on the tradition of the Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office” as he is now accused to several maliciously prosecutions which shall lead to his Recall Petitions.
