Re     Amendments to WAC effective 1997 September 11

The computer generated Charity Profile Reports by the Corporations Division – Charities show PERCENT OF EXPENSES APPLIED TO PROGRAM SERVICES, which is an unconscionable misrepresentation of facts and fraudulently misleading to the consumer.  The PERCENT OF TOTAL REVENUE APPLIED TO CHARITABLE PURPOSE .... (page 2, item K) is the normal accepted standard.  All consumer oriented charity reporting groups and every other state use this percentage method.

Note, federal annual informational tax return Form 990 of the IRS does not show any percentage of any kind whatsoever.

These computer generated Charity Profile Reports by the Corporations Division – Charities read “Percentage to Charity” with no description as to how it was calculated.  When I called the Corporations Division – Charities today about the nonprofit referenced to in the next paragraph, I was told the percentage figure but was not told what it was a percentage of.  Most inquirers would not ask, but of course, I did; and was told that it was the percentage of money given by contributors and used for charitable purposes, which is incorrect.  The personnel at Corporations Division – Charities are not trained properly; and this, in itself, shows that most people will think that the percentage is for the PERCENT OF TOTAL REVENUE APPLIED TO CHARITABLE PURPOSE and not to PERCENT OF EXPENSES APPLIED TO PROGRAM SERVICES.

Showing the PERCENT OF EXPENSES APPLIED TO PROGRAM SERVICES gives every charity a higher percentage mark than if it had been given the proper way.  An example is SPOKANE COMMUNITY HOUSING ASSOCIATION.  Inquiries to your office regarding the calendar year 1993 are told a Percentage to Charity of 57.7%.  Their PERCENT OF TOTAL REVENUE APPLIED TO CHARITABLE PURPOSE was 33.69%.  For the calendar year 1996, they are told a Percentage to Charity of 74%.  I do not know what the PERCENT OF TOTAL REVENUE APPLIED TO CHARITABLE PURPOSE was because the Corporations Division – Charities wants $5.00 for a photocopy of the two page

annual financial registration.  This $5.00 charge to the consumer to get additional facts over and above the fraudulent information that the

Corporations Division – Charities disperses is exorbitant especially considering that the annual filing fee for the charity is only $10.00.

When charities are not spending the money received, it shows up in the PERCENT OF TOTAL REVENUE APPLIED TO CHARITABLE PURPOSE as a much lower figure.  Since these charities are sandbagging the money for future salaries and perquisites for the officers and directors, consumers can then opt to contribute to other charities that use the money for charitable purposes.

Since 1995 December 12, I have made several inquiries to the Corporations Division – Charities regarding nonprofit corporations receiving money from the City of Spokane, some of it funds of the Federal Government; and I did not receive an invitation or any kind of questionnaire regarding possible changes in the Washington Administrative Code regarding charities.

Therefore, it is safe to assume that your office is more interested in protecting these scam charities than it is the consumer.

On 1997 December 26, I received a report from the Corporations Division – Charities regarding forty-seven (47) charities that had applied for funds from the City of Spokane.  Eleven (11) of these charities were delinquent in filing their mandatory annual financial reports.  Some were more than one year delinquent.  Have all of these delinquent charities been turned over to the Washington State Attorney General for prosecution?

Note to all readers of this letter.  Religious Organizations are exempt from filing federal annual informational tax return Form 990 with the IRS or annual financial reports with State of Washington Secretary of State Corporations Division – Charities.  However, they can voluntarily file.  It is my opinion that unless they do voluntarily file, it should be unlawful for taxpayer money to be given to them.  Taxpayers deserve to know how their money is spent.  Should Religious Organizations receive taxpayer money at all?  Tell your elected representatives.

Please inform me as to why chemicals were used at Loon Lake, Washington in an attempt to eliminate Eurasian water milfoil instead of using the American Weevil (Euhrychiopsis lecontei) which is used by all northeastern states including Minnesota, the land of 10,000 lakes.

American Weevil (Euhrychiopsis lecontei) and their larvae feed on Eurasian water milfoil.  Holes drilled by adult weevils allow bacteria and fungi to infect the water milfoil stems and air to escape from them.  Eventually, the once buoyant stems collapse like spent balloons into the mud.

When you give a gun and badge to a fat slob with a Napoleon complex, you are asking for a Civil Rights Violation Suit in Federal District Court.

My mother Mildred Tingey Kroboth died 2002 August 3.  I do not tell telephone callers that she died.  Apparently, a nosey salesperson from Eldercare, Inc. contacted Adult Protective Services.

2002 November 19, “Slob” telephones me and asks for my mother by name.  When I asked who was calling, he would not give his name only that he was Adult Protective Services, said that he had received an inquiry about my mother, but refused to give me the name of the inquirer.  I told him what to do with it and hung up.

Thirty minutes later, “Slob” is beating on my door.  I opened the upstairs window, stuck my head out and asked him what he wanted.

“Slob” said, “Come down here, I want to talk to you!”

I said, “I am talking to you right now!”

“Slob” said, “If you do not come down here, I am going to come up there

and arrest you for killing your mother!”

“Slob” had obviously been on the computer, knew that my mother was dead

and is now investigating a homicide.

I told “Slob” to shut his mouth with an expletive inserted.

Two days later on 2002 November 21, “Slob” is back beating on the front door again and broke my door lock.  I had to nail the door shut.  I will expect compensation.  You may, personally, come and inspect the door lock within the next fourteen days.

Should Adult Protective Services want to exhume the body, you have my permission, provided that you do it before the end of 2002 December and before the body deteriorates anymore.

“Slob” is a disgrace to every legitimate police officer.  If you would do background checks, psychological testing and require a passing score of 80 on an I. Q. test, you would have eliminated “Slob” with each phase.

Spokane Police Officers were here the day my mother died.  They got her name, date of birth, social security number, etc.  They phoned the Spokane County Office of the Medical Examiner.  The information was put on the computer for all legitimate inquiries.  If there is a state law requiring that the DSHS Gestapo be notified, then you should advise the Spokane City Police Department.

2002 November 19, “Slob” would not tell me his name when I asked who was calling, only that he was Adult Protective Services.  In your letter to me, you do not mention his name.  Discovery in Federal District Court will provide the answer.

There were no Spokane City Police Officers with “Slob” when he came to the door on 2002 November 19.

“Slob” said, “If you do not come down here, I am going to come up there

and arrest you for killing your mother!”

“Slob” knew that my mother was dead.  “Slob” wanted to arrest me.

A legitimate investigation of my complaint of 2002 November 29 should have been by another police organization; i.e., Spokane County Sheriff, and “Slob” would not have been shown a copy of my letter of complaint.

When the DSHS Gestapo defends the actions of “Slob”, you are stating that all Adult Protective Service workers have no intelligence or ability for the positions they hold, no inhibitions or regard for the principles involved; and that they are all egotistical, domineering and tainted with that tough person with a badge and gun attitude.
