" The Hole That They Are In "
" More absurd corruption in politics in Medford and Ashland. No doubt about it" the good cowboy said.
- - DOUG and the Dope. Jackson County and the Dope. The Dopes & the Dope.
Commissioner Dyer took donations from Doug - -- 4 elections -
" A lawsuit filed Thursday Feb 23, 2017 claims former Jackson County Commissioner Doug Breidenthal accepted cash payments for marijuana consulting while still in office and bilked an elderly couple out of $150,000 to help finance his cannabis store.
"We put up the house for it," said 81-year-old Larry Nelson of Prescott, Ariz. "We're sitting in a spot where he thinks he owns the whole business. We were supposed to be partners."
Another investor, Greg Allen, said he paid Breidenthal $13,500 in cash from August through December 2016, while Breidenthal was still a commissioner and voting on cannabis issues, to act as a marijuana consultant and to help establish the American Cannabis Co. in Medford.
Allen claims he invested a total of $79,000 in money, personal property and inventory for the business at 2131 W. Main St. Breidenthal has received a license from the state to operate there, but has not yet opened the doors.
"His hypocrisy knows no bounds," 53-year-old Allen said of Breidenthal. "This guy's a shape-shifter. He's self-serving, and he talks a good game."
The lawsuit by Allen and the Nelsons, filed in Jackson County Circuit Court, claims elder abuse and breach of fiduciary duty and seeks restitution for the money lost. Through their attorney, Chris Hearn of Ashland, the investors ask the court to appoint a receiver and freeze American Cannabis Co.'s assets. The Nelsons and Allen together claim they invested $229,000 in the business. The suit asks for triple damages for the Nelsons, or $450,000, under Oregon's Elder Abuse Statute.
In total, the suit asks for $529,000 from Breidenthal, who could not be reached for comment despite repeated attempts by phone and email.
As these allegations come to light, Breidenthal remains under criminal investigation by the Oregon Department of Justice over questionable expenses charged to a "Friends of Doug Breidenthal" account set up under the Association of Oregon Counties that was designed to help him campaign for an office of the little-known Western Interstate Region. Among the expenses under scrutiny is a $1,000 campaign contribution Breidenthal sent to current county Commissioner Rick Dyer, when Dyer was running for the office in 2015.
Portland attorney David Griggs, who represents Breidenthal in the DOJ investigation, said he isn't representing Breidenthal in the investors' lawsuit.
Allen said he contacted the Department of Justice about the allegations detailed in the lawsuit. The DOJ would confirm only that the investigation is still ongoing.
Allen, who has been involved in marijuana ventures in Arizona since 2009 and in Rogue Valley Remedies LLC in Medford, said he approached Breidenthal last spring because he needed someone local who could introduce him to others in the cannabis industry and who could negotiate the bureaucracy of establishing a recreational cannabis business. At the time, Breidenthal was on the Oregon Liquor Control Commission's 15-person marijuana rules advisory committee.
American Cannabis Co. was almost ready to open early this month when Allen and the Nelsons confronted Breidenthal and began examining business documents at the store. Alarmed at what they found, they said they had a meeting with an attorney to resolve the issues but the situation worsened.
"Doug locked us out," Allen said.
Allen said red flags were raised in his mind after reading a Mail Tribune article on Feb. 6 that reported Breidenthal was the only name involved in two business entities associated with American Cannabis Co: Marigold Enterprises LLC and Capital Pacific Advisors Inc. Breidenthal's name is also the only one listed on an Oregon Liquor Control Commission license for the cannabis store.
Allen said the business was supposed to be a partnership and he thought Breidenthal was someone he could work with and trust with the money he and the Nelsons were investing.
"If you can't trust somebody, you don't go into business with them," he said.
The Nelsons, who celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary on the day the lawsuit was filed, also said they came away with a good impression of Breidenthal initially.
"I thought he was such a nice man," 84-year-old Mary Nelson said.
She said that part of the motivation for her and her husband to invest in American Cannabis Co. was to involve their 21-year-old grandson in the business.
Her husband said he thought Breidenthal was personable when he first met him and felt comfortable making the investment, particularly because their friend Allen appeared to be on good terms with Breidenthal.
"The way he talked, we thought we were doing good," Larry said.
The couple has been going through a difficult time dealing with the fate of their money, but they try not to think about it too much.
"Certainly, I'm worried about it," Larry said.
"It's a low blow," Mary said.
Despite the worries about their investment, Mary said, "We feel right will turn out to be right."
In May 2016, Allen said, he first approached Breidenthal to discuss Jackson County's regulations regarding marijuana operations. At the time, Breidenthal expressed an interest in starting a recreational marijuana business, Allen said.
On Aug. 13, 2016, Allen said, he began giving cash payments of $1,000 a month to Breidenthal, whose annual salary was $100,318. Allen said he asked Breidenthal whether he was able to accept the money while he was a county commissioner, and Breidenthal told him he had checked with his counsel at the county, who told him he could do it. Allen claims he gave $45,000 to Breidenthal, plus another $34,000 in personal property and inventory to open American Cannabis.
Jackson County Counsel Joel Benton said he couldn't comment on any communications he may have had with Breidenthal because of attorney-client privilege.
A Mail Tribune review of minutes of all commissioner meetings in 2016 in which marijuana was discussed found no mention of Breidenthal disclosing his marijuana business interests. Oregon law prohibits public officials from using office for financial gain and requires them to disclose any economic conflicts of interest.
On Sept. 23, 2016, Breidenthal formed Capital Pacific Advisors, and on Nov. 9, 2016, he formed Marigold Enterprises LLC, based on information from the Oregon Secretary of State.
The Nelsons wrote a $150,000 cashier's check to Capital Pacific on Nov. 9, 2016, according to the lawsuit. On the same day, Breidenthal applied for a recreational marijuana license from the OLCC and deposited the money into Rogue Credit Union, the lawsuit states.
The lawsuit notes Breidenthal failed to disclose to the OLCC that there were other partners involved in the marijuana enterprise. Allen said he learned in early February that Breidenthal had misrepresented to the OLCC where the $150,000 in capital to start the business came from.
Mark Pettinger, spokesman for the OLCC, said, "We, the OLCC, are aware of the complaint against American Cannabis Co., and we are investigating."
He said the OLCC license is still active.
In their lawsuit, the Nelsons and Allen raise questions about $34,640 in expenses Breidenthal paid using the Marigold Enterprises account.
They allege Breidenthal charged a three-day stay, Dec. 12-15, 2016, at the iconic Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego to a Visa credit card belonging to Marigold Enterprises. The bill was $968.43.
The hotel stay came after Breidenthal had been in Tallahassee, Florida, for a Rural Action Caucus Symposium, held Dec. 7-9 at the Hilton DoubleTree, to discuss how counties are combating chronic poverty. According to flight records obtained by the Mail Tribune, Breidenthal flew out of Tallahassee three days after the conference, on Dec. 12, and arrived in San Diego that afternoon. On Dec. 14, $750 was paid out of the Marigold account to Seaforth Boat, a San Diego company that rents out boats.
A total of $2,447.76 was paid on Jan 23-24 to Whistler Platinum Co., which provides rentals in Whistler, British Columbia. Other unexplained expenses itemized in the suit include $12,050 to a "B Gutches" and $4,000 to the OHA, which could be the Oregon Health Authority.
The suit also alleges Breidenthal drew $5,800 from the Marigold account on Jan. 25, without documenting the purpose of the draw. Another debit transaction of $5,500 on Dec. 23, 2016, has no information or receipts, according to the suit.
Breidenthal also paid Griggs Law Group $2,000 out of the Marigold account. Griggs Law is also listed as an agent of Hillcrest Enterprises LLC, another company Breidenthal formed on Dec. 1, 2016.After a Feb. 13 meeting between Allen and Breidenthal, the suit alleges Breidenthal "either froze or withdrew the remaining funds in the business accounts at Rogue Credit Union, changed the locks on the American Cannabis Company's business premises at 2131 West Main St., and notified the security company and others that the plaintiffs (Allen and the Nelsons) were to no longer have any access to the business premises."
xxCommissioner Rachor snow job
John Rachor who drove dump trucks of green bud marijuana for xsheriff Michael Winters, to " help out" why was a Commish driving illegal "eradicated" marijuana around, " to help out?"
County Sheriff Snow Cat. Not so funny. John Rachor & the buds
His boat that ended up with Dave's nearest neighbor Dean Hunt. And the xxxsheriff Mike Winters who had a restraining order from his first wife; when he threatened her with a gun. " You won't be seeing anyone." and, " he knocked the woman's young daughter around. They were afraid."
Why does Oregon allow compromised contracts & filed restraining orders ? Which don't stop Commissioners or Sheriff
" Former Jackson County Commissioner Doug Breidenthal is about to open his own recreational marijuana store in Medford, even though he expressed concerns while in office that marijuana legalization might open up a "Fort Knox for the criminals."
- - -
Former Commissioners Don Skundrick and John Rachor had $3,500 and $9,500 in expenses, respectively, in their last two years of office
" Jackson County Sheriff Corey Falls sent an email to the Oregon Department of Justice to look into "allegations regarding a County Commissioner in Jackson County." Breidenthal says he went to Falls after a meeting with Jackson County Administrator Danny Jordan, County Counsel Joel Benton and County Auditor Erick Spivak on Oct. 19 in which Breidenthal described Jordan as "hostile" and "insubordinate."

EXCELLENT ! Let the DOJ (and even entities outside Oregon DOJ) INVESTIGATE On...
Why was John Rachor driving dumptrucks of pot around for Mike Winters???
Southern Oregon's forests carry the scars created by drug cartels that abuse them to make money in the lucrative marijuana market.
So John Rachor drove hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of bud around, to help out. Riiiight. Commissioner Rachor business partner to Brim. Conflict of interest on the contracts?
Cash reward. Twenty thousand dollars cash.

Seven years is too long
David Lewis was a friend to many and a great neighbor. He was murdered seven long years ago.
Dave lived on the summit of Dead Indian Memorial Road. He was a trained wildland firefighter, loved politics, cared for his neighbors and land. He would lend a hand to anyone when needed. Dave was a loving father and uncle, an outspoken man for truth, a hard worker and a great guy.
It is now seven years since his body was set on fire and his home and all belongings torched to the ground. Subsequently, the murder was swept under the rug by ex-sheriff Michael Winters. Another historic cabin near Keno Quarry was also arsoned. There were "RV developments" afoot, similar to those illegally placed on two Hyatt Lake campgrounds. There were many suspicious characters, developers, sex-hook-ups, eradications and hidden activity on the mountain at the time.
There are three crime scenes excellent detectives investigated. The location where David was killed is unknown. The community deserves justice. It was an especially heinous crime.
We are very thankful to the first-responders, friends and brave firefighters. All those who truly seek justice. There is a $20,000 reward for an arrest. Seven years is too long.
Medical Marijuana Stock Manipulation Scheme
On July 9, the Securities and Exchange Commission settled with two stock promoters accused of reaping $2.5 million in illicit profits by manipulating stocks of medical marijuana microcap companies. According to the proposed judgments filed in the US District Court for the Western District of Washington, defendants Alexander Hawatmeh and Christopher Mrowca each consented to a permanent bar from participating in penny stock offerings and to a permanent restraint from further violations of Section 10(b) of the Exchange Act and Rule 10b-5 thereunder, Section 9(a)(1) of the Exchange Act and Section 17(a) of the Securities Act. The SEC brought criminal and civil charges against Mr. Hawatmeh, Mr. Mrowca and two other stock promoters in August 2014, alleging that they engaged in a pump-and-dump scheme and used manipulative trading tactics, such as wash trading, and matched orders to artificially inflate the stock prices of certain thinly traded microcap companies. The SEC alleged that the scheme created the illusion of an active market in the stocks, which the defendants used to aggressively promote the stocks through social media and websites under their control. According to the complaint, the defendants misled potential investors that the stock price would rise substantially, knowing that two of the target companies had no business operations and no news suggested that the stock price of the other companies would significantly increase. The SEC alleged that the defendants sold their shares and reaped more than $2.5 million in profits, and the stocks subsequently collapsed and resulted in losses to investors. Earlier this year, Mr. Hawatmeh and Mr. Mrowca were sentenced to five and three years in prison, respectively, for their participation in the scheme. Under the proposed judgments, Mr. Hawatmeh and Mr. Mrowca are liable for disgorgement of approximately $2.1 million and $306,000 in illicit profits, respectively.

A New Hampshire sex offender was arrested Thursday evening in Florida after what U.S. marshals said was a 39-day bicycle trip to the Sunshine State.
Edgar Gordon, 49, told the marshals that he left New Hampshire in May 2014 and headed for Florida. He claimed to have eluded capture by hiding in the woods or staying at various shelters.
Gordon had failed to register as a sex offender in New Hampshire as required by a 1994 conviction in Caribou County. Maine, for a sexual assault, according to Deputy U.S. Marshal Jamie Berry. Gordon is a Tier III sex offender, which is the highest classification.
Gordon was arrested at a shelter run by a religious ministry in Oak Hill, Florida. Berry said Gordon will be extradited to New Hampshire. "
And the last shall be first, and the first shall be last.
IN CUSTODY. Fear & intimidation no longer working. Critter.
The wheels grind slowly, but they do grind.
Concord, NH – The U.S. Marshal Service, Manchester and Dunbarton Police Departments are pleased to announce that last evening, Edgar Gordon, 49, of Manchester, NH was arrested by the U.S. Marshals, Florida Caribbean Regional Fugitive Task Force, in Oak Hill, FL.

Gordon was also wanted by NH State Probation and Parole for a parole violation with an original offense of burglary; Dunbarton Police Department for burglary and felony reckless conduct; and by Merrimack County Sheriff’s Office for failure to appear for burglary.
Information was recently developed that Gordon was residing at REANNA Ministries, where he was arrested without incident. Gordon a registered sex offender, told police in an interview that he departed New Hampshire in May of 2014 on a 39 day bicycle ride to Florida. While in Florida, Gordon told police he eluded capture by staying in the woods and various shelters, when he learned police were searching for him.

Once Gordon is cleared of any local charge he will be held as a fugitive from justice and would be extradited back to New Hampshire.
U.S. Marshal David Cargill, Jr., said “This is a great example of how the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Forces coordinate nationwide to locate sex offenders who no longer wish to comply with state sex offender registries.” Cargill continued, “The cooperative effort of these fugitive task forces made up of Federal, State and Local partners allows the agency to locate sex offenders and fugitives who may be otherwise unnoticed in other communities throughout the United States.”
Since the inception of the New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force in 2002, these partnerships have resulted in over 5,869 arrests (Updated as of 12/4/2014. These arrests have ranged in seriousness from murder, assault, unregistered sex offenders, probation and parole violations and numerous other serious offenses. Nationally the United States Marshals Service fugitive programs are carried out with local law enforcement in 94 district offices, 85 local fugitive task forces, 7 regional task forces, as well as a growing network of offices in foreign countries.
