This post was started in July of 2013 I have been super busy so my blog has been being a bit neglected. I am trying to catch up on all of the info & documents that have been sent to me but please understand that some of the info is outside my scope of ability to do anything about. Also please do not email me from your job or use a employment related phone, even using your private email on a work computer puts you risk

1} Gold Bar Council Member Chris Wright is a wife beater but that never made the local paper.
On February 5, 2012, Seattle Times Reporter Emily Heffter published a false statement that Gold Bar council member Chris Wright does not have a criminal conviction for domestic violence. After the Gold Bar Reporters (GBR) contacted our new found Washington State open government supporters (thank all of you) the Seattle Times “recanted and revised” Heffter’s false statement. http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/avantgo/2017434837.html Information in this article, originally published Feb. 6, 2012 was corrected Feb. 9, 2012. A previous version of this story incorrectly stated that City Councilmember Christopher Wright had never been charged with domestic violence. A more detailed review of court records shows a domestic-violence assault conviction in 2007.
The feds couldn’t investigate it themselves as soon as people started dropping dead all over the place? What other place do you know of where there have been that many deaths that DOJ hasn’t been on them like stink on spit? What other place has had that many deaths?
3} Plus these stories from the Freedom Foundation:
Deborah McPherson, 59, said several top county officials including Deputy Executive Mark Soine, who resigned Monday, knew or should have known about misconduct by male managers in the Planning Department and failed to take action. The lawsuit also names the county official who investigated workplace complaints of harassment and discrimination, Mark Knudsen. Knudsen resigned in February days before an investigation concluded that he had prepared written reports in only about one-fourth of complaints over the past decade and in some cases completely lost records of employee complaints. Knudsen reported to Soine. The lawsuit is the latest in the fallout over complaints about the treatment of female staff members under former Planning Director Craig Ladiser. Ladiser resigned in August after an investigation concluded that he had exposed himself to a woman during a building-industry golf tournament. He faces assault charges in King County over the incident. McPherson said Tuesday she took legal action against the county only as a last resort. She said she complained to Ladiser, Knudsen and Human Resources Director Bridget Clawson, about a sexist office environment and retaliation against her for protesting women’s treatment, but that nothing was done. The lawsuit describes the Planning Department under Ladiser and his deputy Greg Morgan as a “Harley Club” where male managers routinely left work early, drank excessively, rode motorcycles together and gave each other preferential treatment in hiring and promotions. The complaint says that Morgan, who served as deputy director from 2006 to May 2009, boasted about his use of a sexual-performance drug, touched women inappropriately and forwarded e-mails with pictures of naked women from his work computer.
b} 2010: Jackie Hall and Dan Bly, Snohomish Corrections Deputies, filed a workplace complaint with Snohomish County’s Equal Employment Opportunity investigator. Each received $50,000 and resigned their jobs this summer
as part of the agreement reached with the county. Mark Knudsen, the attorney who handled their EEO complaint, resigned from the county
, after more than 10 years on the job.
e} Such is the case in Snohomish County. A few months ago, we researched the Kay Kohler story
, which we featured in this story and video
. It exposed a situation where Snohomish County offered and paid $404,000 for part of Kay Kohler’s property, changed their minds on the valuation, and got a judgment to get most of the money back. In the end, Kay Kohler lost most of her family property and her compensation, and she spent far more on attorney’s fees than what she had been paid by Snohomish County. (From the Freedom Foundation)

5} At least they have settled in one of the 10+ deaths at the county jail,
