Washington State Bar's Racketeering, Corruption, Organization,  Influence for Profit, Part II of  V

Over the last 12 months, the Gold Bar Reporter has been investigating Washington State Bar lead counsel Linda Eide and Snohomish County public officials ( John Pennington, Crystal Hill Pennington, Joe Beavers, Chris Wright, and Dorothy Croshaw) past and present, and attorneys Michael Kenyon, Linda Eide, Lin O'Dell, Geoffrey Gibbs, Sean Reay, Lindsey Downs, Mark Roe, John Nappi Jr., Margaret King, and Ann Marie Soto for Racketeering.  See for Part I of this report.

The Rackeeting Enterprise involves a fictitious blog created by Aaron Reardon in July 2008 to control the message on the Internet and inside the Sky Valley. Mr. Reardon started the illegal Enterprise under anonymous blog  titled " The Sky Valley Chronicle."  Ablog where John and Crystal Pennington and Gold Bar's former Mayor Joe Beavers are anonymously criminal harassing just as they taught Kevin Hulten to.

Reardon through his agent Ron Fejfar gave several public officials, including former Gold Bar Mayors Joe Beavers and Crystal Hill and Snohomosh County's Aaron Reardon appointee and pedophile John Pennington personal access codes to log in and post blogs right from Snohomish County offices. 

We know this because the City of Gold Bar and Snohomish County turned over public records documenting that each public official  was given access log in code to the Sky Valley Chronicle by an agent named Ronald Fejfar.  Fejfar also uses an allias "Chet Rogers" and owns a media group titled "Rogers and Company."

Chet Rogers is a failed radio show host radio host from the 1970s who now lives in a double wide in the City of Sultan. Mayor Carolyn Eslick confirmed to the Gold Bar Reporters investigators that Ron Fejfar has failed to pay a single cent in tax to the City of Sultan. A felony.

According to our experts, the Sky Valley Chronicle posts are written by Snohomish County's John Pennington, Crystal Hill and Gold Bar's former Mayor Joe Beavers.  All three are being sued in United States Federal District Court and will be deposed either this year or next depending on whether we will have to make a trip to the 9th Circuit or not.

According to Gold Bar's current Mayor Linda Loen and Gold Bar city council member Thomas Palmer the Sky Valley Chronicle's blog is simple " the Sky Valley Chronicle's sole purpose is to defame and harass Anne Block"  Thomas Palmer and Linda Loen told former Gold Bar planning commissioner in early 2014. 

Mayor Linda Loen also told the Gold Bar Reporters that "Crystal Hill is a gold digger; a real slim ball."  We agree with Ms. Loen on both statements.  


To put this whole RICO scandal in perspective our readers should have a little background information.  In late 2013, Washington State Bar lead counsel Linda Eide,  a personal friend to Snohomish County Commissioner Geoffrey Gibbs, Gold Bar city attorney Michael Kenyon, and Snohomish County racist pedophile John Pennington ( a piece of shit Republican George Bush Jr. political appointee who is  responsible for the deaths of thousands of minorities in Hurricane Katrina and 44 deaths in Oso Washington mudslides), sent the Gold Bar Reporters an illegal subpoena seeking media files from the Gold Bar Reporters.  This violated Washington State law,  RCW 5.68.010,  prohibiting any agency or any body with subpoena power from seeking media files without first going to court to seek a subpoena.  

Washington State Bar's lead counsel Linda Eide's illegal RICO conduct resulted in our decision to start a twelve month investigation into the Washington State Bar's Office of Disciplinary Counsel.  As of today,  we are confident to report that our investigation confirms that the WSBA is guilty of gross RICO violations against many of its members.

Late last month, Snohomish County released Prosecutor Sean Reay's telephone records documented that he entered the RICO Enterprise with WSBA Linda Eide in September 2013.  This information now unequivocally supports a RICO complaint against the WSBA is warranted and will be filed by the end of the 2014.

But Snohomish County Prosecutor Sean Reay is no stranger to committing crimes. In 2012, the Gold Bar Reporters received public records documenting that attorney Sean Reay runs illegal backgrounds on citizens through the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office.

RCW 10.97 prohibits the access of criminal background information by a non-member of law enforcement. Law enforcement is defined and strictly limited to the police. 

According to one public record, attorney Sean Reay ran 660 illegal backgrounds checks in violation of RCW 10.97. 

With no surprise, Sean Reay and Linda Eide's phone records received via public records requests linked WSBA Linda Eide to Prosecutor Sean Reay.  Reay and Eide will be sued under RICO and other related civil rights statutes by the end of 2014 with several other members of the RICO Enterprise (gang).

Here's how Washington State Bar solicits complaint with the assistance of the Enterprise (Washington State Agencies):

The Washington State Bar solicits agency employees to file bar complaints against any attorney who questions or complains about an agency employee.  The Washington State Board of Governors also receives special  financial perks to influence which members are investigated and which members are not. 

Gold Bar's city attorney Michael Kenyon is a personal friend to WSBA counsel Linda Eide, and according to one other blogger, Linda Eide and pedophile and Snohomish County political appointee are personally connected to WA State Senator Tracy Eide. 

After a blogger contacted Senator Eide about a public record file that Snohomish County Dept of Emergency Management's (DEM) public records officer Diana Rose turned over between Senator Eide and Snohomish County political appointee John Pennington, Senator Eide abruptly announced that she was retiring.

Public records from Snohomish County DEM document that John Pennington and Seantor Tracy Eide were engaged in extensive exparte communication in violation of Washington State's Public Disclosure (PDC) laws.  An issue that shall result in PDC complaints against both shortly.

John Pennington is no stranger to committing crimes here in Washington.  John Pennington has four PDC complaints filed, reprimanded by the Washington State Public Disclosure Commissioner for illegal use of taxpayer resources for political purposes in late 2012.  The PDC is still investigating John Pennington for additional PDC violations, and as soon as the PDC completes its investigation, we will update our readers.

The reason the WSBA is member of Snohomish County's RICO gang ( also referred to under USC code as an Enterprise) is simple: keep cost to the taxpayers down by reducing civil liability for crimes committed by agencies and its employees and to take out anyone who who questions the Washington State Bar's RICO activities. 

Last month we promised our readers that we would issue our findings after the Gold Bar Reporters researched 20 disbarred or suspended Washington State attorneys. In each case, all but one attorney who have been disbarred or suspended crossed paths with a small group of Washington State Bar Board of Governor members, mainly from the Law Office of Anderson Hunter, located in Everett, Washington and Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office, and/or the Washington State’s Attorney General Office (AG).

Attorney John Scannell disbarred after he filed a WSBA complaint against former Attorney General Christine Gregoire.

In 2000, Ms. Gregoire was the Washington state Attorney General who missed a simple deadline for filing a lawsuit,costing  Washington State taxpayers 19 million dollars.  This was the largest legal blunder ever caused by a sitting AG in United States history.  Instead of Gregoire accepting responsibility for her legal malpractice, she blames the insurance company  and blames attorney Janet L Capps.

In a press statement regarding the largest legal blunder ever committed against the taxpayers, Attorney General Gregoire stated:  ” I’ll never miss another deadline…” However, then sitting Governor Gary Locke said  “She’s taken a lot of corrective steps to make sure that never happens again and I applaud her for that.”

But just three years later, and after spending over $1.2 million dollars to install a calendar system to prevent such blunders, another assistant Attorney General Scott Lockwood was disciplined for blowing another Attorney General  filing deadline. This legal blunder assisted specifically attorney Michael Kenyon’s client, the City of North Bend, win a default judgment eliminating a nearby North Bend parcel of land  from the state’s short list of potential halfway-house sites.  A favor or Racketeering?


Because Christine Gregoire is a licensed Washington State Bar member who is mandated by Rules of Professional Conduct to supervise junior associates, attorney John Scannell, filed a bar complaint against Christine Gregoire.  A complaint that was mainly ignored, only after Office of Disciplinary Counsel and Board of Governors learned that Christine Gregoire was running for governor.

Once Ms. Gregoire become Washington State’s new governor, the Washington State Bar’s investigative file of her disappeared, and she used her new political capital to go after attorney John Scannell for filing a bar complaint her. 

At the time the Washington State Bar decided to assist Governor Gregoire’s retaliation against attorney John Scannell for filing a bar complaint  ( for Gregoire’s gross legal malpractice that should have resulted in an immediate disbarment),  three of Snohomish County’s top political players were on Washington State Bar’s Board of Governors.

The three members are:

Snohomish County Commissioner Geoffrey Gibbs, an attorney from the law firm of Anderson Hunter.

Attorney Robert Leach, from the Law Office of Anderson Hunter.

Robert Leach’s wife, attorney Vicki Norris, another employee from the law firm of Anderson Hunter.

Once Christine Gregoire became Washington State ‘s Governor in 2004, Robert Leach received a political appointment from Gregoire to an open seat inside Snohomish County’s Superior Court.  As a result of Robert Leach’s loyalty in assisting Gregoire with dismissing a valid Washington State Bar complaint, in 2010, Governor Gregoire appointed Robert Leach to an open seat on the Washington  Court of Appeals Div. I.

At the time of Robert Leach’s appointment, he had almost no experience in the practice of law. Leach remains Washington State’s least qualified political judicial appointment in Washington State’s history.

Attorney Geoffrey Gibbs received a permanent appointment as a Snohomish County Commissioner for his efforts in assisting Governor Gregoire with disposing of a valid  bar complaint.  This conduct equates to one of the largest RICO scandals in Washington State's history.

Out of the 20 attorneys that Gold Bar Reporters researched, all 20 of them had same or similar stories of either questioning a government officers or having a run in with a member of the Washington State Bar’s elite group, otherwise known as a Washington State Bar’s Board of Governors.

We did contact the Washington State Bar detailing our findings which document gross RICO complaints, however the Washington State Bar and its lead counsel Linda Eide ( who was committed crimes against bar 18 out of the 20 members we researched) refused comment even after confronted with evidence that the Washington State Bar is guilty of gross RICO violations, both criminal and civil.

In 2012,  a source close to former Snohomish County Director of Emergency Management John Pennington’s ex-wife # 2, told the Gold Bar Reporters that John Pennington bragged like a little child that Geoffrey Gibbs and Robert Leach would do him any political favor he requested of them.  So far, John Pennington’s assertion that he is a part of their Enterprise has held to be true, as true as the Washington State Bar’s involvement as stated herein.

In each case, the Washington State Bar’s activities amounts to criminal activity pursuant to 18 U.S. Code § 1962. 

Three weeks ago we contacted the Washington State Bar detailing our findings, but the Washington State Bar and its lead counsel Linda Eide, Lin O'Dell and John Nappi Jr. ( who particpated in some ways in criminal overt actions against 18 out of the 20 members we randomly researched) refused comment even after confronted with evidence that the Washington State Bar is guilty of gross RICO violations, both criminal and civil. 

The WSBA's refusal to answer questions regarding Part I of our 12 month investigation lead to this email letter to the some of the RICO Enterprise members:

Ms. Eide/ Ms. Lin O’Dell,/ John Nappi -

This email is being disseminated to over 36,000 WSBA members email addresses, so for a change please be a honest. 

As you know, Snohomish County Oso mudslide murderer John Pennington has been exposed as a pedophile, a prime suspect in a 5 year child rape case in Cowlitz County, kicked out of a church in San Diego for molesting two boys on a church camping trip, convicted for criminal harassment in Oregon after he hospitalized his ex-finance who will only name as Ms. Becker,  his step daughter from wife # 4 ( Crystal Hill) shakes uncontrollably when Pennington takes her ( who we will name J to protect her) long extended alone day trips, and in 2009 beat up his pregnant 3rd trimester pregnant wife named Anne in Duvall Washington ( King County). 

Our questions for you before we post Part III of RICO corruption that we uncovered involving John Nappi, Lin O’Dell and You ( Linda Eide), Alison Sato, Michael Kenyon, Sno Co Prosecutor Sean Reay, and Snohomosh County Commissioner Geoffrey Gibbs is simple:  Did you ever run a background check on John Pennington before deciding to defend this pedophile?

Just to make sure that our readers ( over 36,000 WSBA members) understand exactly what their monies are being misused for, we have chosen to attached the email letter from the WSBA showing that the WSBA is misusing members monies to protect a non-client pedophile George Bush Jr political appointee named John E.  Pennington.  

Pennington is also the man who caused the deaths of thousands of minorities in Hurricane Katrina and 44 deaths in Oso Washington mudslides.  According to public records from Snohomish County, Pennington is no longer DEM Director but remains on the County’s lucrative welfare system.  

Our publish date for Part III is next Sunday.  Please respond by next Saturday.

As of today, the WSBA has refused comment regarding our investigation. A RICO complaint against those mentioned herein has been written and will be filed by the end of 2014.

An out of state judge will be assigned to the RICO complaint because the United States 9th Circuit mandates that anytime the WSBA is named as a defendant an out of state judge will be assigned. Thank you Judge Kozinski. for being a champion for the First Amendment!   

Other residents throughout the United States are filing similar lawsuits. See

Conflicting rulings from the US Circuit Courts will more than likely entice the United States Supreme Court to step in to resolve several issues including whether or not the WSBA is a state agency and whether or not the WSBA can be sued under 42 USC 1983 once it violates a non-members citizen's civil rights.  

Note that we are planning to update this blog within a few days, because we have four disbarred or suspended lawyers true stories of how WSBA counsel Linda Eide also went after them after they too came in conflict with WSBA Board members.  But for today, we are waiting for a final statement for a suspeneded lawyer who Snohomish County Commissioner Geofrrey Gibbs has been attacking for almost three years.
