CRR/LGOP

(WANNABE)

INVESTIGATOR

.

“Someone in our group violated our confidentiality, printed this report and gave it to John Stevens”

.

In our earlier story,PUT UP OR SHUT UP” we reported that Ranch Matters (RM) obtained a three page Investigative Report, authored by Jennie Anderson, wannabe investigator for the CRR/LGOP-Little Group of Patriots and its connection to key Ranch Officials.

.

Jennie Anderson’s Report confirms she conducted an investigation on behalf of the LGOP that included interviews with President Kari Vickery, Ranch Administrative Assistant Kara Burkhart along with other unnamed Ranch staff and volunteers.

 

Her Investigative Report confirms said Ranch Officials provided her with targeted homeowners confidential and personal information.

.

Anderson’s Report contains information intriguingly similar to the CRR Board of Directors latest attack associated with their amended Resolution 2023-4-17 that incorporates much of the same language used in Jennie Anderson’s Report, suggesting some level of cooperation between the LGOP and Ranch Officials.

.

At the last CRR/BOD Meeting (4/17/23), RM was forced to address the above and called out President Kari Vickery. As expected, Vickery evaded the subject.

.

Ranch VP Ara Erdekian wanted to know more and asked:

“WHO IS JENNIE ANDERSON AND WHO CONTACTED HER?”

.

RM was allowed to answer some of Erdekian’s questions that included input from resident Carol Orr and Jennie Anderson via zoom.

 

Ms. Anderson introduced herself, confirmed she’s a resident of the Ranch and the

“AREA

A-S-S-I-S-T-A-N-T

for People’s Rights, which is a nationwide group….”

She proceeded to explain her involvement related to resident Carol Orr and the protection of people’s rights-Selective Rights.

 

Anderson stated: “I told her that I would look into these allegations…” “…I have never spoken to her before, nor had I heard of her before…”

 

Anderson continued: “I proceeded to make calls to people that are, yes, we have a group here that’s about, 40 some residents, that are on the Ranch, that we are meeting on a regular basis.

We almost consider each other like family and these groups are called Little Groups of Patriots.

They are part of People’s Rights and are not a separate entity from them. Its members of People’s Rights that are community minded, so we get together to protect each other…”

.

Erdekian interjected and asked Anderson:

WHY DID YOU MAKE THE REPORT AND WHO DID YOU SEND IT TO?”

 

Anderson responded: “…John Stevens had reached out to me for a comment in a text message that I sent to Carol Orr asking if we going-People’s Rights, was going to protest for her basically and I said at this time, that we felt as though it was not something People’s Rights wanted to get involved in.

That it was a personal matter that she needed to handle. That especially after attending the Board meeting and speaking with other Ranch residents, those including, including those that were at the meeting where she was FINED.”

.

“I, we made the decision COLLECTIVELY as a group, not just myself, that we were not going to get involved and I told her so.”

“The group is, the HOA is a private entity-the First Amendment doesn’t apply to them.”

.

Erdekian again interjected and asked Anderson:

“WHY DID YOU MAKE THIS REPORT?”

Anderson: “Because I was letting the other members of my group know and I sent it on a CONFIDENTIAL platform.

The only people that are in SLACK, are people who have been vetted People’s Rights Members and the only people that received it, were those members that are on the Little Group of Patriots. I explained to them what my decision was to let them know.”

 

“SOMEONE in our group violated our confidentiality, printed this REPORT and gave it to John Stevens.”

 

Erdekian:

“Jennie thank you for attending today and answering all of our questions, we really appreciate it.”

 

Anderson: “Additionally, I never accused John Stevens of doing anything it’s all conjecture what he is saying.”

 

President Vickery was asked if she spoke with Jennie Anderson and she replied: “I never spoke with Jennie Anderson in regards to this matter.”

RELATED: “HEARSAY TAKEN AS THE TRUTH”

.

VP Erdekian, without benefit of reading Anderson’s Investigative Report or taking into account the Ranch Officials involvement, including President Kari Vickery’s alleged involvement, dismissed the matter and tossed it into the dustbin.

Case Closed.

 

It was suggested that the Board read Jennie Anderson’s three page Investigative Report, as well as, investigate this serious CONFIDENTIALITY BREACH.

As an aside, in our earlier story the “The Un-American”, John Hummel, the former Deschutes County District Attorney, accused People’s Rights of being dangerous, repulsive and anti- American. Hummel:

“I would tell them (People’s Rights) they’re anti-American, dangerous group that repulses me.”
