Sorry to disappoint Sarah Russell, but we have yet another fake facebook identity, Jessica Bowen, used to comment by Russell

One of the stranger aspects of Sarah Russell's comment where she confirmed that Russell was a lying scumbag who used fake names to comment on blogs and newspaper comment sections, was her claim that
SO, Here's for one: Jon Russell may have used aliases and fake names in the past but has not commented, blogged or otherwise produced written material under any fake names for over 6 months.
The dynamics in Russell's marriage are had to discern. But one dynamic is that Russell is lying to his own wife, because I believe that the identity "Jessica Bowen" is, in fact, Jon Russell. And that would tend to show that Russell is so warped that he's even lying to his own wife about his nefarious activities.

We're also aware of one of the fake identities Russell used on facebook and the democratian for purposes of attacking political opponents, one "Judy Banks." Which leads me to this probability: That another identity of a conservative bent has popped up on facebook, also required to comment on the democratian, a woman by the name of "Jessica Bowen."

Jon Russell talking to himself in the guise of one "Judy Banks."

As we also know, "Judy Banks" facebook page disappeared when I busted Russell by outing him as the face behind the name. And so did any mention of "Banks" on Russell's facebook page.

Sheer coincidence, I'm sure.

"Jessica" indicates she's in Seattle. Odd that, like "Banks," she has no local connection, and feels compelled to comment on our local happenings. Odd that, like "Banks" she has no family members friended. Odd that like "Judy Banks," she's a rather cute blond. Odd that even her initials are the same as "Judy Banks." Odd that she has a friend list not unlike "Banks," which included some rather progressive individuals. Bowen is, of course, "friended" to Jon Russell, also like "Banks."

Odd further that she seems to comment on Russell's pet subjects... the most recent being an immigration beef based on an illegal alien killing John Zupan in a car/motorcycle wreck.

It's likely, though I do not have proof... yet... that this "Bowen" person is, in fact, Jon Russell.

But it has a certain symmetry to it, and it follows Russell's long-established pattern. Russell has, in the past, engaged in this sort of thing and has been so proud of himself that he couldn't help but tell people I know about it.

So, that means he's not only got psychopathic tendencies... it also means he's proud of them.

More to come as I dig deeper.

Russell's problems continue: Freeman has an UNACCREDITED "bachelor's degree," Plinski, apparently, hasn't submitted her LifePac survey.

In all the years Jon Russell has done such a miserable job in elective politics, you would have thought he'd have vetted his pet candidates a little better.

He's got two, you know: Connie Jo Freeman who the democratian lists Freeman as having been the office manager for Russell's moronic congressional run. Think in terms of being a steward on the Titanic.

The other is Caryn Plinski, woman of mystery. I say "woman of mystery" because she doesn't seem to have bothered to put up a campaign website and she doesn't seem to have even bothered to return her LifePac survey.

Run a google search on her, and you come up with practically nothing. Nothing about her qualifications (Cosmetics sales really isn't all that on a resume' for city council) and very little on her positions. Nothing about her education (or lack thereof) a sensitive subject for Jon Russell, who lied repeatedly that he had a bachelor's degree when he had no degree of any kind. (file this under the "no lie he won't tell" category.

Russell, who owns both Freeman and Plinski like the 13th Amendment was a suggestion, is shilling her as hard as he can. But given his rank political incompetence, that ain't all that much.

Meanwhile, back to Connie Jo Freeman.

Because of Russell's involvement in her campaign (He's running every aspect of it; she's just doing what he tells her) I thought I'd look at her claim of having a a rather nebulous "bachelor's degree" from something called "Southern California Community Bible College, Long Beach, CA."

So, I looked it up.

It doesn't exist.

Something called "California Bible University, Norwalk, CA" exists, but not that place.

There is, in fairness, reference to something called "Southern California Community Bible College" on the web. But is Long Beach in Norwalk? HHhmmmmm...

That said, the question I have is this: is this a fully accredited school? Or is it Matchbook University?

Well, it appears to be Matchbook University since they have no academic accreditation I could find.

What is it about Russell and education? Why does he insist on exaggerating his own, and why do others around him frequently fail to tell the whole truth about their's?

Bizarre. Someone with that background and education reduced to driving a school bus.

Things that make you go "HHhhmmmmm...."

Russell's support: reason enough to vote against his pet candidates.

Locally, we got stiffed with Ridgefield Barbie, who was installed in Congress by Cathy McMorris. As I've been saying since Ridgefield Barbie scammed the appointment in the Legislature with a fix through Marc Boldt, she has been a cowardly, card board cut out of what a real member of congress SHOULD be, lacking the courage to face any but a hand-picked few as her appearances are carefully controlled and scripted by her handlers who rightfully fear her as being dumb as a plank.

Voters in Washougal are faced with the same situation as Jon Russell attempts to become the de facto mayor by installing his own hand-picked lackeys on the city council.

Unfortunately, Russell's support and endorsement is reason enough to reject these two, his tweedle dee and tweedle dum puppets.

Russell, recently outed by this blog and his own wife as a lying scammer who uses fake identities on area newspapers and blogs to attack political opponents, wants to eliminate any opposition to his agenda. As a result, he's making a serious effort to pack the Washougal City Council.

If Russell were a man of integrity and honor, his endorsement might mean something positive. Instead, it means that these people, one of whom used to be a former employee of his failed campaigns during the last cycle (and weren't those abysmal pieces of crap?) and as such, will be a good little Russell lackie should she be elected.

Checking out Jon's blog, "The Self-Delusion of Jon Russell," we see the same kind of warped reasoning that has clouded his judgement for years:
Plinski finished her Primary race in second place with 27% of the vote. If voters stay with challengers in the general election, both candidates combined behind Pliniski will make up a 1063 votes to Incumbent Rod Morris’ 623 votes.
Yeah. And if frogs had wings, they wouldn't bump their butts every time they jumped.

Using the same kind of "reasoning" (Using the term advisedly) If voters stay away from Russell's toady, then she will be obliterated at the polls with the usual 70-30 percent loss that Russell's efforts achieved as he screwed up the Port Levy while trying to jam the largest tax increase in local history through the polls.

That didn't work out all that well, either.

Any chance that Plinski has long since vaporized with the information, provided by his own wife, that Jon Russell has been a lying scumbag for years. I sincerely hope that Plinski and Russell's other lackey, Freeman, haven't measured any drapes just yet.

Russell: Christian?

A lot of Jon and Sarah Russell's shtick is their alleged "Christian" lives.

First, I believe that Jon Russell is as much a Christian as my Cavalier Spaniel.

As a general rule, Christians neither lie, nor cheat, not steal, nor allow a misleading silence to continue.

Odd then, isn't it, that every time he posts using a fake name to attack a political opponent or support a political ally, Jon Russell is, well, lying. Every time he told us he had a degree, he was, well, lying. Every time he referred to Sarah Russell as a doctor or physician, he was, well, lying.

Not very Christian of you, Jon.

And Sarah's failure to confirm both that she is the source of the comment posted here and that Jon has been posting under various fake names for years?

That's not very Christian of you, either.

Integrity is hard to come by in the political world these days. But for a couple involved in politics, and particularly when one of them is an elected official who holds himself up to be special because of his alleged religious foundations... to lie this way, to mislead this way... to neither confirm nor deny this way?

I think both of you are going to have a lot to answer for.

For a Christian, telling the truth is not a sometimes thing. For posers who turn that stuff on and off like a switch?

Not so much.

Situational ethics as opposed to spiritual. It's what's for dinner.

The democratian's non-response on the Russell scam: Memo to Ray

First of all, she did, in fact, make the comment. One thing you could have done... you know, like a real journalist? Is to call me or email me and ask me.

Second, my sources tell me that Jon Russell has been identified as having as many as 20 different identities... in the old Columbian alone.

Third, I have proof that it was Sarah Russell.

Fourth, her comment is still up; had you bothered to click on the link that was her name, you would see that it was posted in the bottom of the comment section here:

Fifth, her failure to confirm or deny pretty much tends to be an acknowledgment, both that she made the comment and that Russell uses fake identities.

If this is what passes for "journalism" here, then there's really no wonder that you people are bleeding money every day.

I seem to recall the massive outrage screamed about here because I had been writing letters using a fake name for years. I had a front page story, and at least 3 columns as I recall.

But in this case? The response was, well, muted. Where's the "outrage?" Where's all that principled nonsense that you clowns pull out whenever you need it?

This is confirmation that an elected official, and official who has lied about his education for years, an official who oversaw the debacle of Washougal finances and the Stacy Sellars drama... feels compelled to use fake names on multiple publications to attack his political opponents.

I remember what you people tried to do to me. One wonders: was all that faux outrage because I disagree with the fringe left politics of those running your show, and wasn't afraid to let you all hear about it? Or was it the real deal?

Well, this blog nonsense here tends to confirm that, doesn't it? And your failure to treat Russell the same way you've come after me? Well, that certainly speaks for itself.

Fake college graduate and failed candidate Jon Russell must have missed the classes on irony.

Things have been a bit difficult for Jon Russell since his wife, Sarah, confirmed that he'd been using fake names and identities to attack political opponents on blogs and on comment sections of various newspapers.

So, imagine my surprise when I read this:
Washougal Councilman Jon Russell said during last night’s meeting he understands it is a process that involves a public hearing, but he does not have “high hopes” of people giving their names and addresses while speaking in favor of medical marijuana collective gardens.
Russell, who has lacked the courage to attack his numerous political opponents openly, has relied on lying about who he is and where he lives for years.

Irony is defined as, among other things, a technique of indicating, as through character or plot development, an intention or attitude opposite to that which is actually or ostensibly stated.

For a Jon Russell to make such a claim as the one above, is to manage to peg the Irony meter in ways the developers never imagined.

Just sayin'.

Sarah Russell, wife of Jon Russell, confirms that Russell has been using fake names to comment on articles and blogs.

It has been long alleged that Jon Russell has repeatedly made up identities for purposes of commenting on blogs and in newspaper articles on line. Russell, himself, has repeatedly denied such allegations.

Today, his wife confirms the allegations are true.

This comment was left on my Jon Russell Watch Blog by Sarah Russell, his wife:
Sarah Russell said...

I'm sure no one will believe anything I have to say on the topic, but I promised someone that if I had the time and energy, I would jump on an refute any known fallacies on this blog. SO, Here's for one: Jon Russell may have used aliases and fake names in the past but has not commented, blogged or otherwise produced written material under any fake names for over 6 months. I personally have no idea who these fake names belong to, but I have to refute the false allegations. I know it must come as a shock to some that there might be other persons out their using fake names and disliking this or that political figure, but I'm breaking the news now: there must be! Thanks for letting me set the record straight. Sarah Russell
This acknowledgment of Jon's basic, dishonest nature may be the straw that broke the camel's back.

Jon has REPEATEDLY denied the truth.

And now, you confirm it.

Well, here's my response:

I appreciate you stopping by, but your admission here... now... when you knew he was doing this 6 months ago?

It amounts to what we in politics refer to as a "when did you stop beating your wife" moment.

The issue isn't that he's stopped... although my sources tell me he hasn't come close to stopping and that he had numerous identities on various newspapers...


For elected officials or candidates, using fake names to attack others and to engage in character assassination is NOT a luxury any elected official can afford.
I freely admit I used a fake name and may continue to do so in the future.

But what am *I* elected to? What have *I* EVER been elected to?

Jon Russell has shilled himself as this honest, Christian kind of guy. He looked me in the eye over two years ago and solemnly told me that he'd "changed." That "holding his newborn daughters in his arms" has made him different.

Even invoking his children, he couldn't help but lie to me.

Because he had not changed... and in this regard, you have confirmed it.

Jon should resign. Now. Today.

He has lied REPEATEDLY on this issue... which begs the question: what else is he lying about... and to who?
This, of course, now amounts to what the democratian euphemistically calls "a paper trail."

Will they act and do what has to be done?

Because if they don't treat him the same way they've treated me... well, that will confirm a great deal... won't it?

Are we going to see Brancaccio hold Russell up and beat him to a pulp? Or will he get a pass because I beat the hell out of Lou and the despicable rag he runs?

The playground ethos of Jon Russell.

Russell is an interesting guy.

He doesn't know squat about politics or elections; has the integrity of your basic alley cat and would lie to your face, as he has to mine (and many others) if he thought it would get him elected to something.... In fact, he's just like Steve "The Liar" Stuart and Tim "The Liar" Leavitt in that regard, as well as sharing their fringe left democrat views about jacking up our taxes.... if he can scam a paycheck out of the deal.

Why Delavar views his involvement in his campaign as anything but an anchor around his neck is a mystery to me.

And this is the kind of crap that proves the point:

While these two are partying their socks off. Delavar and I were hitting some high altitude on Mt. Adams.
Lew Waters · Top Commenter · Works at Curmudgeon & Blogger
Pathetic Jon, really pathetic.

Some things are done just for fun, not to further politics.
You take yourself too seriously Lew.

  • Kage McClued · Owner/Writer at Clark County Politics Blog
    I'm reminded of the kid never picked for kickball on the play ground.

    While these two are acting like idiots OUT of the office instead of just acting like idiots IN the office, NO ONE CARES what you do. Comes with the territory of being an ego-maniacal politician that gives the rest a bad name.
The "mee-too, mee-too" element of this is undeniable.

It's the kind of thing which serves to confirm that faux-conservative Jon Russell is unfit for any elective office... this among many others issues he has.

And Jon, spare me the hypocrisy of your "forgiveness." You are not in a position to provide it, and if your responses do not directly address the substance of these matters, you will not be posted here.

Democratian comedy: calling Jon Russell a "conservative."

Those crazy kids at the democratian.

Here's the pitch:
Guard views the current council as having a four-person conservative bloc: Delavar, McDaniel, Jon Russell and Dave Shoemaker. Members of the so-called Washougal Four have denied such a bloc exists.
Russell isn't a conservative. He's not really, anything. He and Delevar are,in fact, a pair of "fleebaggers," the term coined to describe the slimeball democrat Senators of Wisconsin who abandoned their positions to paralyze state government to abort democracy because of their absence... just like Russell.

He acts like a conservative and a Christian.

But would a true conservative sell out their principles for a paycheck?

Russell did.

He worked very hard to help the Port of Vancouver try and jam the biggest tax increase in local history down the throats of the people of Vancouver by making roughly 5 figures as a consultant for their Port Levy Election.

His efforts, as well as the Port's, were miserable, like every contested election he's ever been in... and the Port lost on the wrong end of a 70-30 vote.

But no true conservative would sell out for a few pieces of silver to require a huge tax increase... ever. A true conservative would rather starve.

And what true conservative or Christian would lie about their education to get elected? What true conservative or Christian would lie about what their wife does to get elected? What true conservative or Christian would lie to the 18th District PCO's about how much money he'd raised for his election?

He wants a political clone on the council to do what HE wants. In short, his support of Freeman is to achieve one purpose and one purpose only: Russell wants to be the defacto mayor of Washougal. And he can take over the city government if even one of his winged monkeys gets elected.

That, ladies and gentlemen, is a frightening prospect for the unsuspecting people of Washougal.

But make no mistake about it. Anything Russell does that screams "conservative" is an act. He's many things... but "conservative" ain't one of them.

ANOTHER bizarre Jon Russell comment?

The money quote?
People who serve in Washington D.C., Olympia and City Hall regardless of party, often have a[sic] over inflated feeling of self-importance.
For a Jon Russell to actually comment this way... about someone else... PARTICULARLY someone else HE had endorsed when he was, well, ejected by his complete lack of traction in his abortive congressional run.

In knowing and watching Jon for the past 7 years or so, few I have met meet the very definition he has applied to Ridgefield Barbie in this, yet another damage control article by the democratian, as Ridgefield Barbie sold us out with her vote, which, at a minimum violated the GOP 72 Hour Review Rule while she was throwing us under the bus.

Suggestion to Jon:

Before you describe anyone else's shortcomings, feel free to work on your own.

What? A bogus Jon Russell endorsement? Reason enough to vote for anyone else.

If ever there were a reason to vote against someone in a primary, Jon Russell has provided it.

Russell, best known for his disastrous campaigns for Congress and the 18th district last year wherein he lied about having a college degree, lied about his fund raising, repeatedly violated PDC laws in his deliberate failures to properly report, sat in overwatch of the Washougal disaster that was Stacy Sellers while $100,000 mysteriously vaporized in front of his own eyes AND worked hard to get the largest single tax increase in area history passed in the form of the Port Levy, who pad him 5 figures to work on their EQUALLY disastrous campaign, has endorsed his campaign office manager for Washougal City Council.

I read the babble of his endorsement, located here: Oddly, he fails to mention his relationship to her for some reason, because the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth is a completely arcane concept to this caricature of a politician who turns that "conservative Christian" thing on and off like a switch.

Folks, there is a reason that he didn't mention she at least used to work for him. The fact that I am unable to find any other endorsements from anyone speaks for itself.

In everything from multiple fake identities on blog and newspaper articles so he can engage in character assassination anonymously to failing to accept ANY responsibility for the train wreck that is Washougal City Government, Russell's endorsement SHOULD be the kiss of death to any politician... including this one.
