Governor Gary Locke and Attorney General Christine O. Gregoire received the following letter by certified mail 06 June 99. They received follow-up copies by certified mail 15 November 99 and 15 January 02. They have neglected to respond to any of the three formal requests or previous informal representations. In addition, the Executive Ethics Board (EEB) has mounted a cover-up and attorney generals have consistently denied access to public records that relate to these issues. Gregoire, now governor, has lawlessly evaded the issues for more than a decade.
Now, another ninety days have elapsed without you addressing the very serious allegations that I have made to you, and to Governor Gary Locke, during the past fifteen months. Evidently, you have chosen to ignore my letter (PT/03.08.99) and have neither taken action nor arranged for independent inquiry under the statutes suggested by Locke. I remind you that Locke initially suggested the following procedures:
The Superior Court could call a grand jury if so requested by a public attorney on a showing of good cause. Also, the Organized Crime Advisory Board, may petition the Supreme Court for an order appointing a special inquiry judge. If a special inquiry judge is appointed, the organized crime advisory board shall, with the consent of the Governor, name a special prosecutor.
I now make formal charges against the conspirators and co-conspirators listed in the appendices to this letter who have convened and held a kangaroo court in absentia using framed evidence. Accordingly, I expect the Attorney General to take immediate action by arranging an independent inquiry under one of the options suggested by the Governor.
Conspiracy. A combination or confederacy between two or more persons formed for the purpose of committing, by their joint efforts, some unlawful or criminal act, or some act which is lawful in itself, but becomes unlawful when done by the concerted action of the conspirators, or for the purpose of using criminal or unlawful means to the commission of an act not in itself unlawful.
A person is guilty of conspiracy with another person or persons to commit a crime if with the purpose of promoting or facilitating its commission he: (a) agrees with such other person or persons that they or one or more of them will engage in conduct which constitutes such crime or an attempt or solicitation to commit such crime; or (b) agrees to aid such other person or persons in the planning or commission of such crime or of an attempt or solicitation to commit such crime. Model Penal Code, § 5.03.
Framed. Incrimination of a person on false or fabricated evidence.
Kangaroo Court. A sham legal proceeding that renders a decision or opinion before hearing evidence or argument. A biased court or tribunal that hands down a foregone conclusion which totally disregards a person’s rights.
The following University of Washington officials have conspired to obstruct justice and to deny civil rights through denial of due process. Additionally, they have either bribed or condoned bribery and falsified or condoned falsification of public records to cover up their criminal acts.
Lee L. Huntsman, Provost
Marsha L. Landolt, Dean, The Graduate School
Ernest R. Morris, Vice President for Student Affairs
Wilbur W. Washburn, Executive Director, Admissions and Records
You have not replied to my previous correspondence. Therefore, I must now insist that you, as the chief law enforcement officer for the state of Washington, take immediate action. You must address this specific complaint by following one of the remedies suggested by Governor Locke.
The University of Washington Division, Attorney General of Washington (AG/UW) has conspired with UW officials to break the law and UW officials have framed evidence to support sham disciplinary proceedings. Subsequently, they have altered, concealed, and destroyed public records to cover up their unlawful activities. In addition, they have denied appeals of their actions. Consequently, only an independent investigator can fairly examine the voluminous documentation that I possess and which supports my contentions.
For your convenience, I have appended a chart that shows the organization of the Graduate School Kangaroo Court convened and held under the auspices of Marsha L. Landolt, Dean, The Graduate School, University of Washington. I have also appended tables that itemize the crimes allegedly committed by the participants. In addition, I have knowledgeable witnesses ready and willing to support my contentions by giving evidence under an oath.
I should not have to remind either a Governor or an Attorney General that if a university receives federal funding and punishes an individual by word or deed then the Constitution requires that the punishment result from due process of law. This presupposes that university officials must have a knowledge of the law and apply it equally. Only those universities that function within the law preserve the individual freedoms granted by the Constitution despite the self-government privileges that university and state officials possess.
AG/UW consistently supports UW officials when they deny both faculty members and students the basic protection that courts provide as a right even to shoplifters. They do not make formal charges and present no evidence before convening kangaroo courts. Frequently, individuals neither know the names of their accusers nor the names of adverse witnesses. Moreover, UW officials try cases in absentia thereby denying the accused individuals the opportunity to present a defense. In addition, they deny basic rights in law by disallowing either oral testimony or written affidavits by defense witnesses. Moreover, the accused individuals, whose only transgression probably relates to exercise of freedom of expression, do not have access to oral recordings or written transcripts of testimony that would enable them to appeal the decisions made by these courts.
At tax-supported universities, due process requires notice and preliminary hearings before expulsion of students for cause or enforced resignation of faculty members. Moreover, legislators have recognized that unlawful and vague definitions, and secret investigation without accountability or due process, lead to extreme politicization and totalitarian control. UW officials consistently use opinionated, self-serving dicta instead of formal resolution or determination of issues using promulgated procedures. This has resulted in blatant denial of civil rights and due process. These denials have destroyed careers and precluded individuals from earning a livelihood yet the Attorney General, with full knowledge of these unlawful acts, has not charged the perpetrators with any crimes or even investigated them.
Typically, UW denies individuals their Constitutional rights in favor of its own system of rough justice that any responsible judge would not tolerate. They operate by:
Denying the right to use legal counsel despite prosecution guided by attorneys general.
Presenting no specific prosecutorial charges.
Rewriting grievances as indictments to reclassify complainants as defendants then prosecuting them.
Using ambiguous regulations, selective enforcement, and no rule of guiding precedent.
Admitting unsworn and hearsay evidence.
Holding hearings in absentia.
Allowing no subpoena power.
Changing procedures according to the political inclination of the chairperson.
Refusing to allow the accused to confront and cross-examine the accusers and their witnesses.
Making judgments using a biased panel in a politically hostile environment.
Falsifying, concealing, and destroying public and student records.
Bribing witnesses and co-conspirators.
Allowing appeals only to the Provost who automatically endorses kangaroo court findings without investigating them.
Most first-year law students know that these abuses and fatally flawed procedures do not serve justice but pander to political agendas. At the UW they completely nullify the judicial process. Worse, connivance and obstruction of justice by the Attorney General staff make these unlawful practices not only possible but perpetual. AG/UW and UW officials consistently cover up malfeasance by unlawfully denying access to, and destruction of, both student and public records.
The Family Educational and Privacy Act of 1974 (the Buckley Amendment) gives students protection against intrusive acts by colleges and universities. This law expressly states that students may have unrestricted access to their own academic and disciplinary records. Furthermore, it does not prevent students from disclosing the contents of their files at disciplinary hearings, to other individuals, or to the news media if they wish to do so. However, UW officials consistently deny full access by students to their records to avoid their use in hearings. This refusal of access to records protects officials who have altered or concealed them to cover up unlawful acts.
In the case of the Graduate School Kangaroo Court, student records prove unequivocally that public officials at the University of Washington have denied due process and falsified documents. They also support allegations of bribery and forgery by the Graduate Dean who has retroactively tried to substantiate kangaroo court findings by committing these crimes. Moreover, these unlawful acts form part of a pattern of this type of behavior that spans ten years. During that period UW officials have consistently obstructed justice by denying due process, silently withholding or altering public records, and denying access to complete student records.
I will not allow these matters to rest until the Attorney General complies with the law by arranging for independent investigation then indictment of the named conspirators and co-conspirators. These individuals have clearly and deliberately participated in unlawful activities. They have consistently deprived me of my civil rights and due process also my livelihood as a professor.
I make formal charges against the conspirators and co-conspirators listed in the appendices to this letter. Accordingly, I expect the Attorney General immediately to arrange an independent inquiry under one of the options suggested by Governor Locke. AG/UW has colluded with university officials to break the law, framed evidence to support sham disciplinary proceedings, and subsequently covered up the activities of kangaroo courts. Therefore, only an independent investigator can fairly examine the voluminous documents that I possess which support my contentions. Consequently, I insist that the Attorney General follow the Governor’s suggestions. She must arrange for the Superior Court to call a grand jury or petition the Supreme Court for an order appointing a special inquiry judge. In the latter case, I expect the organized crime advisory board, with the consent of the Governor, to name a special prosecutor.
I expect both Christine O. Gregoire and Governor Locke to acknowledge receipt of this letter and its appendices over their own signatures within five days. I also expect them to respond with particularity and specificity within thirty days. Their responses must contain specific details of the procedure that they choose to follow and a schedule for its implementation. I also expect them to provide an explanation for their decisions and supporting citations of the laws governing them.
Anarchy results from a failure of government to control lawlessness and disorder. It manifests in an absence of political authority and cohesive principles that predicate upon a common standard or purpose. In Washington state, that condition stems from Christine O. Gregoire, Governor (a former Attorney General) who has tentacles spreading through a multicultural society consisting of special interest groups with Seattle Jewish Mafia (SJM) and University of Washington (UW) predominant among them.
