On Thursday morning, embattled Washington State Auditor Troy Kelley called Democratic Governor Jay Inslee — right around the time the U.S. Attorney’s office for Western Washington announced Kelley’s indictment.
A federal grand jury indicted Kelley on charges of filing false tax returns, making false statements, obstruction and theft.
Inslee later told reporters that he urged Kelley to “resign immediately.”
“These things can drag on for years at times,” Inslee said. “Recognizing that, we have to have an auditor. We have to have an auditor with the full confidence of the people. Those conditions do not exist right now.”
Inslee said Kelley replied that he would not resign, but rather take a leave of absence starting in May.
The governor can only appoint a replacement for Kelley if there is a vacancy, which a leave of absence does not create.
If convicted, Kelley could face decades in federal prison.
Now we know that Ferguson and Inslee have been given direct evidence of crimes in Clark County, at Clark College, presented by various persons to the Clark County Sheriff, VPD, Division II WA Court of Appeals, WA Human Rights; and the stuff I sent to Governor Inslee was per his own request to me personally at a private meeting for Democratic Party donors, before and after the election.
Evidence of Felony Crimes Sent to Governor Inslee (per his own request before and after the last election), AG Ferguson, Washington Human Rights, FBI, Clark County Sheriff, Vancouver Police, Thurston County Superior Court, Division II WA Court of Appeals; Evidence Given on this site of others who have given these agencies (and thus they also have possession of) direct physical evidence of felony crimes having been committed per 18 USC 4 and 73:
18 U.S. Code § 4 – Misprision of felony
Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.
$100,000 Hush Money Offered (and refused) authorized by AG’s Office, Clark College Board of Trustees, Governor Inslee Aware of, FBI PDX asked to see in Writing shown to FBI Vancouver:
Attached is a Tenure Purchase Agreement and Settlement and Release Agreement for your client’s consideration. The May 2, 2014 date reflects 21 days from this Friday and as you are know is required by the Age Discrimination in Employment Act. Please let me know by 1:00 PM Friday whether Prof. Craven wishes to have the 21 days to consider the agreement. I think its best to inform Mr. Stonier by that time so he can inform the 6 faculty members and the College can inform all of their substitutes that the hearing may be rescheduled to allow for the 21 day consideration period.
Senior Counsel |Office of the Attorney General
Regional Services Division, Vancouver
1220 Main Street, Suite 510 |Vancouver, WA 98660-2964
1. $100,000 buy-out of your tenure
2. Waiver of all claims against the College (paragraphs 4 and 5)
3. Agreement not to lodge complaints against College (and its officers/employees) with any state agency (paragraph 6) ever for anything
4. Mutual agreement to not disparage the other (paragraph 7)
5. Non-disclosure of even the existence of the agreement
Thank you for putting together a settlement proposal. I have had an opportunity to review your settlement offer with my client. We are particularly concerned about the gag orders contained in the proposal. Simply put, Prof. Craven is unwilling to compromise his legal and ethical obligations to identify and report malfeasance.
Again, thank you for taking the time to make an offer.
My response (took less than 21 seconds not 21 days to consider and reject the $100,000):
Under progressive discipline, each stage, the correctness and specificity of the charges, properly heard with due process for all, with all findings properly reviewed, is a predicate for the next and higher stages of discipline. Further, in this case, with a series of outright kangaroo courts, each stage and how it was handled, is not proof of a pattern of conduct on my part with charges properly proved, but rather evidence of a pattern of conduct and mens rea on the Clark College that amounts not only to a cornucopia of torts, but of crimes as well.
If I were to even entertain this this “settlement offer”, I would, in my opinion as a citizen required to be able to read, understand and comport myself with the law, with the law being required to be specific in terms and meanings and understandable by an average reasonable and prudent person, be guilty of taking money and benefits to aid and abet the covering-up of real crimes causing real harm to real people; I would also be derelict in my duty as a public employee; I would also be complicit in future damages and harm to innocents by aiding in the cover-up and keeping in place individuals I know from their conduct alone, are unfit to be in any kind of position of trust or in education–students are being defrauded and worse.
I would also be betraying students like [deleted] and so many others to walk away from what I know is out-and-out fraud going on in the classroom and that is why they must have me gone because I will get even more evidence of it and take it to accreditation and other venues.
Here is some law that applies in this case and why I cannot be bought off and I actually regard this offer as a further attempt at Obstruction of Justice and Misprision of a Felony and an attempt to use public funds to get me to become an accomplice. Otherwise, I should be charged and convicted of false statements to law enforcement officers and attempting to use law enforcement for my own personal agenda–which I urged them to do if they thought I was either lying, playing games or attempting to use law enforcement and public resources for my own personal agenda.
Please see below why I cannot accept either a settlement or any “findings” that have the legitimacy of the findings of a nazi court against a Jew or a KKK courtroom against an African American… We can walk through my words word by word, comma, by comma, and they are all defensible, on-point, accurate, on union and pedagogical issues, on protected or supposedly protected venues for exchanges on critical issues for union members, and in the case of 7 days off and 8 days off there was not even a hearing or formal complaint.
Here is part of what I am being offered $100,000 of public monies to cover-up:
