"Ethical Concerns?" I 'bout fell out of my chair.
I’ve maintained all along that former Assistant Attorney General Cheryl Kringle acted inappropriately while involved in this investigation.
Her overzealous advocacy showed no bounds.
This, coming from the Office of the Attorney General of the State of Washington, is inexcusable.
So, I thought I’d start making a list of things Ms. Kringle said or did that were improper and reveal what I consider to be unethical behavior.
Admittedly, some of these things may not be directly attributible to her, but they did happen under her watch and as such are ultimately her responsibility.
2. Falsely claiming there were “seven or eight” complaints filed against me or my company when in fact there were zero actual complaints (may have been her cohort).
3. Contriving a Consumer Protection Act violation lawsuit against me where no consumer had complained about any transaction in which I’d participated.
4. Falsely claiming Fiscal Dynamics “does not provide a valuable service to Washington property owners.”
5. Falsely stating people with whom I partnered to save their properties believe all I’d done was made them loans.
6. Laughing at a homeowner who’d called to ask she promise not to come after me for assisting them in saving their home (she refused to, but I saved it anyway).
7. Attempting to convince sellers I’m some sort of scam artist by implying what I do as an foreclosure investor is unfair to them.
8. Attempting to convince my private lenders that investing their money in foreclosure properties is somehow improper.
9. Attempting to have the malicious press release “optimized” for my name so it would more readily be displayed in search engines.
10. Joking to my attorney prior to depositions about how much money she’d extracted from other business owners in Consumer Protection “restitution plays.”
11. Filing suit against me, after years of investigating, where it is clear to anyone acting fairly and without bias that I’d delivered on every commitment I’d made.
12. Using the power of the office of the AG to terrorize my former partner and convince him to settle or face financial ruin when he had done nothing wrong.
13. Nearly destroying Monte Kline and his business Pacific Health Centers in yet another Consumer Protection Act violation case where there were no consumer complaints and ultimately proved to be without merit, costing the taxpayers of this state upwards of $1,000,000.00.
14. Refusing to admit this entire investigation begins and ends at the doorstep of county prosecutors upset we’ve stumbled onto their turf, tax sale overages, making the investigation 100% agenda driven (and entirely improper).
I’m sure I don’t know the half of what went on behind the scenes. I can only imagine.
But, having experienced the depositions and reviewed the discovery documents and emails to and from my attorneys, that stuff alone is enough to sicken anyone.
My partner and I worked seven years as foreclosure investors, provided an extraordinary service to citizens of this state at risk of losing their homes, delivered on all our promises, and paid every last nickel we’d agreed to pay them.
Our track records speaks for itself and only an idiot would argue otherwise.
Yet today I am sued by your office for millions of dollars because an overzealous consumer advocate with a track record of her own (and it’s not pretty) was somehow put in a position she clearly was incapable of handling.
And then this came in . . .
I recently reviewed a pamphlet regarding an upcoming Living Trust seminar, and noted Ms. Kringle is a speaker.
I’ll let you see for yourself, Rob.
I ’bout fell out of my chair.
