Jeromie Williams Threatened to “Cut” “F***ing B****” and “Throw her to the Dogs”

As we have previously reported on this blog, the criminal fraud artist Jeromie Williams has a long history of cheating in the Chase Community Giving contest to misdirect much-needed charity dollars away from legitimate groups, and towards the dubious “charities” run by his friends, including Ashley Owen Hill and Pippa Jackson.

The new site Animal Rescue Fraud of Mississippi reveals that he did this by smearing legitimate charities in the contest, such as Community Animal Rescue & Adoption (CARA):

“Elizabeth Pippa Jackson set about to willfully harm CARA in the Chase Community Giving Competition. She conspired with her associate Jerome Williams to pay for fake votes for CARA’s entry and then report those fake votes to Chase, framing CARA as cheaters and making fake stories for the media. This was all done not just to simply harm CARA’s chance of winning and increase her own chance, but to irreparably harm CARA’s reputation and cause them to lose supporters and donors.”

Jeromie also targeted United Sikhs in Service of America, a New York City-based and United Nations-affiliated charity that provides humanitarian relief in disadvantaged communities across the world. In keeping with his long history of anti-Asian bigotry, Jeromie conspired with Pippa Jackson to try to “knock out the Sikhs”:

A few months later, Pippa unfriended Jeromie on Facebook, apparently afraid that her association with him would be discovered, or simply tired of his incessant begging for money and plane tickets, or some combination of the two.

Jeromie’s reaction is typical:

  • He calls her a “f***ing b****”

  • He says he will “throw here [sic.] to the DOGS!” (an interesting thing to say for someone who has claimed to be involved in dog rescue charity work)

  • He makes other threats of violence: “I’MA COME DOWN TO [MISSISSIPPI] AND CUT HER!”

It is worth mentioning, once again, that due to Jeromie’s various frauds, an incredible amount of money has been misdirected away from legitimate animal charities, towards fake “charities” that do little or nothing to actually help animals.

Ashley Owen Hill, who won $100,000 after receiving thousands of suspicious votes, now appears to be simply paying herself that money, while Pippa’s facility has long been notorious for poor conditions, including inadequate roofing, water leaks, mud and feces in kennels, with dogs outside in freezing temperatures, no fresh water, minimal vetting being performed on the animals, unaltered dogs being kept together in the same pens with puppies resulting, and even dog fighting.

Jeromie Williams Implicated in Extortion, Cat Abuse, Running Bawdy House, Theft, Criminal Harassment, Etc.

On Sunday, we revealed that not only is the criminal fraud artist Jeromie Williams a crystal meth addict (which explains the premature greying shown at right), but he is a male prostitute, as well.

One of Jeromie’s former friends, Heather Jay, recently contacted us with yet another Jeromie Williams horror story.

It begins in 2008, when Jeromie befriended her on Facebook. They were both from Vancouver, and both moved east. (Heather, a massage therapist, enrolled in a message therapy program in Ottawa.)

She appreciated certain advice her offered on a personal matter, and over the next several years, he slowly gained her trust, only to abuse it in the most spectacular fashion, just as we have come to expect from Jeromie Williams.

Jeromie promised to perform social media work for her in exchange for almost $2,000, but, as usual, he never delivered.

Heather explains:

“I am a very loving and giving person. I help those that I can ( or did until now) and have been very generous to those I love and respect and my nature is very forgiving. To my own detriment it now seems. Jeromie certainly took advantage of this trait of mine and managed to collect nearly 2000$ out of me with promises to work my social media but every time I asked him to start he always gave me some excuse and never answered me back.”

This, of course, is typical for Jeromie, who took thousands of dollars meant for animal rescue, and very likely spent it on crystal meth. In turn, he used his crystal meth addiction as an excuse to explain his various disgusting behaviour at LiberalAmerica.org, but his excuses — everything from a bad breakup to a broken condom and an AIDS test — literally never end.

As Kim Johnston wrote, he is useless:

Jeromie regularly begged for more (as usual), but there came a point when Heather, a mother of four young boys, simply needed her money back, and Jeromie responded that he is “living off of raman noodles and potatoes right now.” He explained he was sorry he “slammed [her] into a corner” and felt “horrible that I can’t make good on what I owe you right now,” since he didn’t even have rent money yet for November:

Readers of this blog will recall that last November, Jeromie told Tiffany Willis he was having financial troubles because he had spent his rent money on crystal meth. Heather’s money, likewise, had probably gone to one drug dealer or another. The drugs, Jeromie explained, “weren’t a factor in me spending money on them instead of necessities. I simply partook with other people.” (In lieu of money, Jeromie apparently offered Heather a job at LiberalAmerica.org.)

Since it was obvious Jeromie was never going to either pay her back or perform the work he had promised, Heather reasoned, maybe she could get him to do something else. She was going away for three weeks over the holidays, and she needed someone to look after her cat. Also, having someone in the house might discourage (other) thieves.

Not to mention that Jeromie was perennially in trouble in Montreal (possibly for stealing and/or not paying for drugs), and repeatedly begged Heather to help him leave the city (“my life depends on me getting out of Montreal…“).

So, unfortunately, she asked Jeromie to housesit for her in Ottawa. Instead of giving him yet more cash (as he asked for), she paid for his VIA Rail ticket from Montreal, and bought him food for the three weeks he would be in Ottawa:

(For more on Jeromie’s “friends” in Ottawa, see #3 below.)

Jeromie neglected, starved and/or abused her cat.

Not surprisingly, Jeromie failed utterly at the one specific task Heather left for him: taking care of her two-year-old cat, Mau-Mau.

Before she left, she carefully labeled three cases of cat food, one for each week she would be away, and left detailed instructions for Jeromie.

When she returned home three weeks later, Mau-Mau was starving, and nearly all the cat food was left in the cupboard. Only four cans (from the first case) had been used. “My cat was so skinny when I arrived home and ate for almost 6 days constantly,” Heather explained, “I didn’t sleep for days.”

Even more troubling, Heather explains,

“She had a patch of fur that looked like it was ripped out and her eye looked wonky for nearly 3 weeks. She hid for nearly 2 weeks and would only come out to eat. She normally is at my side at all times, sleeping with me etc…since then, she had not been the same cat that I left in his care.”

For his part, Jeromie claimed that Mau-Mau ate all the food Heather had left, so he went out and bought more. (Presumably that was right after he finished building another hospital.)

Jeromie also claimed that Mau-Mau had “lost a few pounds” because she’s “getting more exercise“:

Precisely what kind of exercise we do not know, although one of our members has suggested that Jeromie may have thrown Mau-Mau in the air in an attempt to replicate images he has previously posted on his site, such as this:

As we have shown on this blog, while Jeromie masquerades as an animal rights activist, he actually has a long history of exploiting and defrauding animal rescuers. And now it appears that he may have actually abused, or at the very least neglected, Heather’s cat.

Our Canadian lawyer advises us that Jeromie may be guilty of cruelty to animals (causing unnecessary suffering), in violation of s. 445.1(1)(a) of the Canadian Criminal Code, which states that “Every one commits an offence who wilfully causes or, being the owner, wilfully permits to be caused unnecessary pain, suffering or injury to an animal or a bird.” Section 3 states that “For the purposes of proceedings under paragraph (1)(a), evidence that a person failed to exercise reasonable care or supervision of an animal or a bird thereby causing it pain, suffering or injury is, in the absence of any evidence to the contrary, proof that the pain, suffering or injury was caused or was permitted to be caused wilfully, as the case may be.”

Jeromie turned her home into a bawdy house.

Jeromie’s ads, some of which we posted on Sunday, were for sexual services in Ms. Jay’s home last December and early January, without her knowledge or permission.

When she returned, she was shocked to find that “while he was house sitting for me at xmas [Jeromie] had gay sex EVERYWHERE in my home, sold HIS ass on craigslist out of MY fucking house…”

In fact, he even used her professional massage table to do so:

But there wasn’t anything professional about the services Jeromie actually offered:

It is illegal to keep a bawdy house in Canada. Punishment can include imprisonment for up to two years under section 210 of the Criminal Code of Canada.

Jeromie “trashed” her house.

Heather explains:

“When I say my house was trashed, he didn’t make any physical damage per say, but what I came home to was this: open and used condoms under my bed, in my closet and my spare room. I’m talking a dozen or more USED condoms OMG yes! There were Empty booze bottles littered EVERYWHERE. My sheets were gone, several of them actually. They just up and disappeared they did. When i asked him, his response was, ‘I dunno, go look in the closet’. Well, I did and what I found was not my sheets but several towels and facecloths of mine with obvious semen and dark brown pubic hairs EVERYWHERE! I was mortified! I cleaned my home for 4 days before I could get the carpets cleaned, all the walls and everything washed, my entire home disinfected, I never did find my missing sheets!”

Furthermore:

  • Spoiled and rotting food was everywhere. “It was fucking sick,” Heather explains. “My house stunk. HE stunk.”
  • Grease was all over her kitchen floor, cupboards, fridge, stove, and dishwasher. Heather says that “I’d never seen so much grease!”
  • Mysterious black streaks were all over her walls, which had to be repainted.
  • Mysterious red stains were on her carpets, which had to be cleaned.
  • Various filth covered the upholstery on her furniture as well, which had to be cleaned. “He would sneeze and it would just fly EVERYWHERE!” Heather concluded “His [hygiene] is deplorable! His manners non existent.”
  • Three weeks worth of flyers were “tossed haphazardly in the middle of [her] foyer/entrance,” not recycled as she had asked.

Also, she found that her garage was filled with “34 industrial drum sized garbage bags.” Though Heather had left a note about garbage days in Orleans, Jeromie had apparently never managed to take out the garbage.

Heather told Jeromie to leave, and he returned to Montreal by VIA Rail on January 5, 2014.

Unfortunately, her troubles with Jeromie Williams were only just beginning. Since she had confided in him for several years, he knew personal details about her life and her family that he would now use against her.

Jeromie tried to extort $50 (fifty dollars) from Heather.

Jeromie had finally offered to repay Heather $50 on New Year’s Eve, apparently whilst writing a long and bizarre email to a man he had assaulted.

Keep $50,” he said, “and have a beer on me.” A week later, he demanded the $50 back:

However, given what Heather had found in her home when she returned, and given the amount Jeromie still owed her, she was not inclined to give him anything.

In a classic bit of psychological projection, Jeromie then accused Heather of theft, and “making up excuses” to avoid paying. The opposite was, of course, the truth. (Jeromie also demanded that VIA Rail reimburse him for his train ticket.)

At this point, Heather reminded Jeromie that extortion is illegal, and she asked for an explanation of the craigslist and backpage ads that Jeromie had posted advertising sexual services in her home, and without her permission.

But in typical, disgusting fashion, Jeromie continued to threaten her. In particular:

  • He threatened to slander her throughout the media, as he has done so many times before. (If you want to hear audio of him making a similar threat to another woman, please click here.)
  • He threatened to report her residence as a bawdy house (which he had turned it into!) to Ottawa police, explicitly in order to harm her legitimate massage therapy business.
  • He threatened to cause trouble for her boyfriend and his family, by exposing private and personal information about their relationship.

Here is a typical e-mail:

The first sentence is yet another masterpiece of psychological projection. It was not Heather, of course, who set up any fake accounts…

Jeromie stole private pictures of Heather, and posted them online to slander her as a prostitute.

In January, we posted evidence that Jeromie had stolen an email archive from LiberalAmerica.org founder Tiffany Willis, violating the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act in the process.

He continued this behaviour in Ottawa, apparently, where he stole pictures off of Heather’s computer, and even one of her Facebook group accounts (now defunct, it was appropriately titled “The Douche Bag Chronicles”).

There, for all her friends to see, he slandered her as a prostitute:

 

Jeromie also contacted her friends, and suggested they look in the “hooker section” of Craigslist. There, of course, he had posted a series of ads using the stolen pictures. Heather contacted Craigslist immediately to get the ads taken down, but Jeromie’s “campaign” against her had only just begun.

Jeromie threatened Heather’s friends.

Not surprisingly, Heather’s friends did not appreciate messages from Jeromie slandering their friend.

When they objected to Jeromie’s behaviour, he harassed and threatened them, too:

In case anyone is curious what actual “death threats on the internet” look like, it’s probably something like this:

Or perhaps this (audio), this (audio), or this, or, well, you get the idea. Yet in Jeromie’s warped mind, his criminal behaviour is simply projected onto other people, like Colleen, or Tiffany Willis, or Kim Johnston, or the animal rescuers at Operation Sled Dogs, or, well, me. He has threatened all of us (and more) with jail (or worse), and/or inclusion in his police reports.

Here is a threat Jeromie sent my way after I exposed some of his frauds in January 2012:

Not surprisingly, the police are generally more interested in investigating Jeromie’s various criminal activities than in doing the bidding of a crystal meth addicted male prostitute criminal fraud artist who is desperately trying to silence his victims on the internet, lest he be exposed for what he actually is.

Jeromie harassed Heather’s boyfriend.

In the interests of privacy, we will not publish any details here.

This man and his family are yet more innocent victims of the criminal fraud artist Jeromie Williams.

Jeromie stole explicit pictures of Heather and sent them to her 15-year-old son.

Heather could not believe even Jeromie would do such a thing: “He sent my 15 year old son the link to this page and has traumatized him so much! My son had already ‘liked’ my page and so Jeromie was free to send him the link! My 15 year old son!”

Heather is despondent: “I’m totally distraught and devastated beyond belief.”

There’s not much more we can say about this, except perhaps this: To our knowledge, no one has ever been harmed by overestimating the utter depravity of Jeromie Williams.

Nor is this the first time that he has targeted children. He posted pictures of Kim Johnston’s 15-year-old son on his blog, and implied he might show up at his school. Jeromie also threatened him (and her, and her other two sons) with deportation to Australia:

During another recent Jeromie Williams harassment campaign (this time against Tiffany Willis), Jeromie also sent vile pictures to several employees of LiberalAmerica.org, which we suspect may include child pornography. Not surprisingly, Jeromie has gained something of a reputation as a danger to children.

But equally, he’s a danger to adults:

Jeromie likely spiked Heather’s drink in order to steal $300 from her in August 2012.

Before any of the events above happened, Heather met Jeromie in person for the first time in August 2012. She had recently moved to Ottawa from Vancouver, and she decided to take a trip out to Montreal. Needless to say, the trip did not go as planned.

Firstly, Heather witnessed Jeromie snorting various drugs, including cocaine and/or crystal meth (we are reliably informed that Jeromie abuses both).

Secondly, “Jeromie was acting very weird that night and kept insisting that I ‘drink up’ and I thought it was just to get the party started.” In hindsight, Heather suspects that his reasons were far more sinister, because of what happened next:

  • After only 15 minutes, “I all of a sudden felt so sick and heavy and weird and wobbly and disorientated beyond belief and I could barely move.” Also: “I started to feel fuzzy. Heavy and groggy and wanted to sleep right here. I hadn’t even finished my first drink. Jeromie was just sitting there smiling at me and I thought that was weird.”
  • Jeromie’s “personality became very aggressive shortly after and he even grabbed my arm roughly to push me over so a guy could use my chair…it was a total woman hating move for sure.”
  • The $300 she was carrying with her went missing sometime that night.

Afterwards, Jeromie “frantically” denied drugging her, and she ultimately decided to give him the benefit of the doubt, which, obviously, he never deserved.

We have been advised that Heather’s drink was likely spiked with a very large dose of a date rape drug such as GHB, or gamma-hydroxybutyric acid, which Jeromie would have easily been able to obtain from one of his cocaine or crystal meth dealers.

One of Heather’s friends, who was there that night, apparently suspected Jeromie immediately:

Jeromie later confessed to an addiction to crystal meth, just as he had done to Tiffany Willis:

But, of course, he denied he was on meth when she visited Montreal:

Sadly, “stop lying” is not something anyone can reasonably expect from a pathological liar like Jeromie Williams.

This criminal activity, in its entirety, has been reported to the Ottawa Police Service.

Heather, distraught over this whole ordeal, has ended her relationship with her boyfriend, and decided to transfer back into a massage therapy program in British Columbia.

Sickening: Jeromie Williams Posts Gravestones for Tea Party Leaders

Back in 2012, the pastor Terry Jones created a gravestone (see right) for President Obama. Jones, who is perhaps best known for burning copies of the Quran, was rightly condemned across the political spectrum, including by Republicans from Mitt Romney to Sarah Palin. He has also been questioned by the US Secret Service for what could be interpreted as threats against the president, such as the Obama gravestone.

Well, earlier this morning, the criminal fraud artist Jeromie Williams, now an author for the group “Americans Against the Tea Party,” took a page out of the book-burning pastor Terry Jones’s book, and posted this incredibly disgusting picture of five gravestones in front of Congress: one each for Tea Party leaders Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, John Boehner, Eric Cantor, and Rand Paul:

This is nothing new for Jeromie, who, as this site has documented, has supported disgusting sites like RepublicanZombieDefense.com, and the vile “Tea Party Zombies Must Die” game, in which players murder a “Sarah Palin” zombie with a chainsaw. He has described Sarah Palin as a “venomous bobble head” who is “flooding the airwaves with corporate sponsored conservative bullshit.” He even created fake Sarah Palin accounts in an ultimately unsuccessful “Crash the Tea Party” style infiltration attempt.

In 2012, Jason Easley, Editor in Chief of the liberal site PoliticusUSA, wrote that “Obama Hate [Hit] a New Low” with the gravestone: “The message [Terry Jones] is sending is kill Obama. Obama must die.” By that same token, Jeromie Williams appears to be sending the message “Kill Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, John Boehner, Eric Cantor, and Rand Paul. They must die.” At the very least, he’s saying that their deaths would be a “positive thing.”

Now, of course, Jeromie might claim that this is all just a metaphor: he doesn’t want them dead, just their political careers! That, actually, is what Terry Jones claimed. Mr. Easley wasn’t buying it, and neither are we.

Jeromie, we should note, has a lot of experience with death threats: he has condemned them, and, well, made them, many, many times. (You can listen to his threatening voicemail and telephone rants for yourself.)

We urge the United States Capitol Police to investigate, and to take the appropriate measures to ensure that these members of Congress (indeed, all members of Congress) are safe from domestic terrorists and assassins and those, like Jeromie Williams, who try to incite others to violence.

Investigations Suggest Potential Cheating by Ashley Owen Hill in Charity Contest

Chase Community GivingOver the past several weeks, Facebook users have voted for their favourite charities in the Chase Community Giving program, which will distribute $5 million to the 196 charities that receive the most votes. Ashley Owen Hill, the co-founder of Pet Pardons, and founder of Lucky Dog Rescue in Meridian, Mississippi, is currently in 5th place with 24,049 votes, and in position to win a $100,000 prize.

However, several independent investigations are now casting doubt upon the validity of these votes. A week ago, DogsInDanger.com, a charity that helps save the lives of dogs scheduled to die in shelters, reported that they had monitored the voting patterns for many other charities, including Lucky Dog Rescue. Their conclusion?

Five million dollars is a lot of money for needy charities and some are resorting to vote rigging, stealing millions from the neediest people. … After monitoring voting patterns of many of their competitors, DogsInDanger.com executives found clear examples of vote tampering. Large percentage[s] of votes were coming from seemingly fake accounts with no activity or content outside of voting to receive the cash prizes. According to Facebook’s own estimates, over 83 million Facebook accounts are fake … In order to authenticate their findings, DogsInDanger.com conducted an undercover investigation and spoke with several technology firms that claimed to have enabled other organizations to successfully rig online competitions. These companies offered to sell DogsInDanger thousands of votes in the Chase Giving contest for just pennies per vote. Using this fake Facebook network, it is possible to win the top $250,000 prize with just about a thousand dollars invested in buying votes.

We have noticed that many Lucky Dog Rescue voters are not Americans, and do not speak English. Posts asking for votes on the Pet Pardons Facebook page have lately been inundated by comments in Spanish, Portuguese, Greek and Turkish, which is obviously highly suspicious for an English-only site, with (normally) only English comments.

A short list of accounts we have flagged includes: adriana.ausilio, agustina.fernandez.121772, AlesgaMarmoleria, andrea.vegakuri, annegrethe.t.carlsen, beluu.luuiis, blanquita.fina, Caaariiitooo.O.H, cesar.fragoso.39, cminfante78, david.valencia99, deciimeaguustinitha.delbajo, enzo.rojasprudencio, estefania.garcia.92798072, ezgi.umut.doruk, facundo.romero.355, fernando.cimadom, francisco.aceves.315, gaby.dominguez.5477, giseellestefany.caceresportilla, gustavo.lajas, isabelcristina.gomez.3, jaquelin.rodriguez.716, javier.soprano.3, jezabel.pliegoleana, JHONMARTINEZQ, joel.vargas.3517, jose.pintoseguel, joseadrian.gguzman, jovanna.rapeta, julianandres.corderoordonez, lala.robles.9, lenoonmackarneyy, leslyguadalupe.cidestrella, maria.colaco.9, mariaeugeniamaciel22, MariahVG, mariaisabel.contrerassanches, marianna.alcantar, mariateresa.ardoncalix1, matias.barraza.165, meluu.romeritaa, miguel.romeroprado, mily.chamorro.1, moises.ramirezcamarillo, nash1009, omarjhovanni.hernandezrodriguez, patricia.castro.372, rachel.quintana.39, rainbowyoga, ramonero.cetera, raoul.cooper.7, richimulticolor, rocco.ianniruberto, samantha.esquitinhernandez, scholiodigisis.karras, sheyla.montesnavarro, tandannateniaqueser, unapatita.amiga, valecade.cantinero, wanda.gomez.9085, and ykeepaza.

This activity has been reported to Chase Community Giving management, along with a list of known and suspected sock puppet accounts owned by Ashley Owen Hill’s associate, Jeromie Williams, who has written about cheating in the program.

The DogsInDanger.com press release concludes:

“It is despicable that other organizations would resort to vote rigging and stealing funds from honest, deserving charities that play by the rules. When charities steal from each other, how much lower can our society go?” said Alex Aliksanyan, Founder and President of DogsInDanger.com.

DogsInDanger and other reputable charities for causes like children’s cancer, the homeless, etc. are being overwhelmed by the cheaters, unable to compete. Charities are losing hundreds of thousands of dollars which are critical to their activities. Unscrupulous cheaters are stealing these much-needed funds under Chase and Facebook’s noses.

DogsInDanger.com is a free service for shelters and adopters, allowing people to search for dogs in urgent need. In the economic climate of the past two years, funding for DogsInDanger.com has decreased substantially. Winning funds in competitions like Chase Community Giving is instrumental to their continued operations.

Given that cheating would represent a significant violation of the program rules, we have asked Chase to reconsider the eligibility of Lucky Dog Rescue. We would also like to note, for the record, that we are not affiliated with any of the other charities in the competition.

However, like DogsInDanger.com, we would like to see the funding go to reputable, legitimate charities, not cheaters and deception artists. As I have pointed out before, it’s not hard to guess which category Ashley Owen Hill falls into. It seems to us she spends much of her time making disgusting videos, and writing heart-wrenching but fictional stories on her blog (literally all of which beg for donations).

For example:

Then, I paid the $400 vet bill I wasn’t quite prepared for, helped Delilah into the car, and drove her home. This weekend, Delilah has required around-the-clock care from me. She’s very weak, very sick, and very needy right now. Seeing her like this… well… it’s beyond heartwrenching.

Initially… upon return, she wouldn’t eat at all. But soon, I learned that “people food” was enough to entice her.

So… instead of dog food, she’s been sharing people food with me. Actually… it’s more accurate to say that I’ve simply been giving her all of my own food, and taking none for myself, which has honestly made me insanely happy. She needs it… much more than I do right now.

In other words, DONATE NOW or she might starve!!! Again, sorry, I just don’t believe her.

As the The Pet Advocates Network has pointed out, there is no transparency at the “Lucky Dog” rescue. No disclosure of financial records, or veterinary records, or adoption records, or anything else. And no website, just a blog, with a call for donations. That’s it.

And the fact that neither she nor Chris Hoar have ever responded to our many questions about Jeromie Williams, his death threats, his many scams, and his embezzlement from legitimate animal rescuers just raises more questions.

We hope that they will all be answered before Chase gives Lucky Dog Rescue a nickel.

Pet Pardons News Contributing Editor Cayr Ariel Wulff Admits Fraud

SirenSirenAbout a month ago, we wrote about Pet Pardons Contributing Editor Cayr Ariel Wulff (email), and her outrageous defense of Jeromie Williams, the Director of Operations for Pet Pardons Canada, and Managing Editor of Pet Pardons News.

Jeromie was fired by The Examiner for fabricating stories, and is also known for his ChipIn scams and embezzlement from animal rescue groups. It never made sense why Cayr Ariel Wulff would defend this behaviour. Especially considering his long history of criminal harassment and death threats, for which he is currently under investigation by Canadian and American police.

But now, it all makes sense to me.

You see, Cayr has admitted that she was mis-using funds raised for Pet Pardons to “save the life of the next animal just moments away from being abused or killed,” instead using them towards her own dogs’ medications and veterinary expenses:

This is rather curious to me, since the journalist donation button she refers to on the Pet Pardons page has been inoperable for many months, ever since Jeromie Williams’ associated PayPal account, schlamobic@gmail.com, was suspended because of one fraud or another.

As we have also noted, Cayr has also recently written a series of disgusting articles claiming that employees at the Fairfield County Dog Shelter in Ohio are burning dogs alive, based on unnamed “eyewitness accounts.” As it turns out, these witnesses were simply made up, like many of Jeromie’s fake witnesses.

So, I asked her for her sources. Here is her first response:

Now, this made no sense to me. She seems to be claiming that the witness, her source, was an animal rescuer. This would mean that:

  • The dog shelter workers burned dogs alive in front of independent animal rescuer(s),
  • These witness(es) apparently had no objection to this at the time, and just allowed the dogs to be burned alive, without trying to intervene, and
  • The whistleblower who revealed the horrific practice of burning dogs alive would be ostracised, not celebrated as a hero, and
  • The witness(es) told absolutely no one else about what they saw… Except Cayr Ariel Wulff and/or Jeromie Williams.

You can check this last point for yourself: Simply google “Ohio dogs burned alive”: Pet Pardons News is the only source.

Well, I wasn’t born yesterday, so I asked her why literally no one else had reported the story. Her response?

That is a lie.

In fact, in Channel 10’s original story on the Commissioners’ meeting, on August 7, 2012, discusses only the gas vs. lethal injection debate at the meeting. There is no mention of dogs burning alive.

What Cayr was clearly referring to, however, was their story on August 14, 2012, in which a woman on the street condemns the shelter for burning dogs alive, throwing “them into a incinerator when they are not dead.” She read they do this, no doubt, in Cayr’s article published on August 10, 2012.

Note that the reporter was unable to confirm this story. I contacted other local media as well, including the Lancaster Eagle-Gazette, and no one was able to confirm the story. No one had heard from any witnesses, or seen any affidavit, claiming that dogs were burned alive at Fairfield.

And yet, Cayr’s next two posts label the shelter as an “Ohio Dog Burning Shelter”:

  • On August 13, 2012, Cayr notes that a “second witness,” Janice Kobi, President/Founder at Fairfield County C.A.R.E.S., alleged that county commissioners and dog shelter officials wanted to somehow profit from killing dogs via “Dog Composting” (just how this would generate profit is never explained).
  • Also on August 13, 2012, Cayr notes that former Deputy Animal Warden Bobbi Glass said she had “witnessed the overcrowding of gassing cages, sometimes filled up to fifteen dogs, and she witnessed animals coming out of the gas chamber that were not dead. She said that the animals would go back through for a second gassing.

Note, they would go back through for a second gassing, not into a fire. Neither of these witnesses claimed they saw dogs being burned alive.

Even on the video from NBC’s Channel 4 News, attached to Cayr’s final story announcing a change in policy to lethal injections on August 14, 2012, the allegation that dogs were burned alive is not even mentioned, let alone given as a reason for the change in policy. (It’s also ironic Cayr uses the video from Channel 4, not Channel 10, which she falsely claims reported the story on dogs being burned alive.)

It seems as though when you have a following so big as Pet Pardons does, you can say just about anything. Some of those people will believe you. They have faith in you, and would never imagine you would lie to them. Or that you would keep the money they donated to save animals.

Of course it turns out that their faith in Pet Pardons is badly misplaced.

Jeromie Williams Wages War on Women

WomanToday, Jeromie Williams (Twitter, Face Book, LinkedIn) blogged about a very serious topic: The War on Women [screen shot]. According to Williams,

In the last two years, women in the United States have seen an incredibly alarming upswing in laws, votes and measures meant to restrict their access to cancer screenings, family planning, birth control and abortions, leaving many of those affected feeling shut out and silenced in the process.

Whether it’s the kind of sexist and crushing comments made by Rush Limbaugh about university student Sandra Fluke, or the attempts by US law makers to strip away funding state by state to organizations like Planned Parenthood or even the creation of laws that would force a woman to undergo an invasive and unnecessary transvaginal probe, one thing cannot be ignored any longer: there IS a war on women in our midst.

We’ve thought about this, and we have to agree. There is a war on women. And Jeromie Williams is leading it. That is, if you ask Kim Johnston or the women at Operation Sled Dogs, who have sought restraining orders and police protection against the Misogynist-in-Chief Williams, after he stalked, harassed, and threatened them, their children, and even their pets.

Here are ten ways Jeromie Williams makes war on women. Count down with us, or suggest your own in the comments:

Dirty BoyLate last year, Jeromie demanded that Kim Johnston send himFreebies” (namely, free “Dirty Boy” facewash products) from her company, so that he could auction them off at a party on December 15, 2011 to raise money for “Carry Your Message,” another scam… er, I mean, for “developing the critical workshops and artistic networks required to spread the inspiring message of positive change.” That is, if there’s any money left after Jeromie buys lunch.

Anyway, there was one small problem: Kim Johnston never agreed to send any products. Although Jeromie’s CYM press release listed Kim’s company as a “leading corporation” that was “sponsoring” his event, this was all part of a months-long cyber-stalking, harassment, and extortion campaign. When she didn’t send the products, Jeromie attacked her savagely, calling her a “greedy bitch” and a “broke has been.” He slandered her in false Examiner stories, and he disparaged her company and her products on Twitter (yes, the very same products that he wanted her to send him for free).

Naturally, we complained to Examiner.com, and Jeromie was fired shortly thereafter. That’s when the death threats started…

9. Jeromie Williams Makes Violent Threats Against Women and their Families

On January 6, 2012, Jeromie bombarded Kim’s e-mail account with more than a dozen threatening e-mails, all from Jeromie’s gmail account (all in the span of a little over an hour). “[M]y ticket to Boulder is booked and I am coming for you,” he warned. “I’m coming to Colorado. I know where you are.” (“I can pinpoint your address within 50 feet.”)

He also threatened Kim’s young sons with a “campaignof terror: “Their lives are going to be fucked because of you.  Ab-so-lute-ly fucked.” And: “I know where your sons are…” As if that wasn’t enough, he also threatened Kim’s beloved dogs: “You have to go back to Boulder at some point … your dogs are thereI am coming.” (He also threatened me: “First you go down, then Topher is next. I know where both of you are, and you’re both going to get it.“)

A few short months later, after scamming a sled dog rescue group out of thousands of dollars, Jeromie was back at it, threatening women over the phone, and in voicemail messages. Once again, he told the women “You’re going down” and “I know exactly where you are.” That’s his modus operandi, it seems. And with few exceptions, the threats are all directed at women.

Audio of Jeromie’s threats has been provided by The Pet Advocates Network.

8. Jeromie Williams Calls Women Abhorrent Names

In the poem recited in Jeromie’s video, we are told “Keep your salacious, aggressive, sexist insults to yourself. I’m not listening.”

That’s ironic, because Jeromie has called Kim Johnston, the creator of this blog, a “saggy titted cunt” (among other things):

Around the same time, Jeromie apparently felt the need to tell everyone that he, on the other hand, has “great tits.”

I’m not even going to get into the vicious names Jeromie’s sock puppet accounts (Paula Neufeld and Shelly Comeon) called Kim.

But speaking of sock puppets…

7. Jeromie Williams Impersonates Women Online, Often to Attack Other (Real) Women

There is clear evidence that Jeromie Williams maintains a vast network of fake online profiles, many of them women, including:

Jeromie also created fake Twitter and Facebook accounts for “a mom and two daughters in Alaska who hoped Sarah [Palin] would run for president.”

Speaking of Sarah Palin…

6. Jeromie Williams Enjoys Killing Women With Chainsaws In Sick Video Games

Jeromie Williams supports disgusting sites like RepublicanZombieDefense.com, including the vile “Tea Party Zombies Must Die” game in which players must murder a “Sarah Palin” zombie with a chainsaw.

Jeromie has described Sarah Palin as a “venomous bobble head” who is “flooding the airwaves with corporate sponsored conservative bulls***.”

But no worries, I guess, as long as Jeromie can fantasize about chopping up women in politics whenever he disagrees with them.

5. Jeromie Williams Interferes in the Investigation of Serious Crimes Against Women

As we have reported previously, Jeromie’s articles for the Examiner.com often involved events that never happened, people who don’t exist, and even supposed witnesses to serious crimes who do not exist, at least not outside of the imagination of Jeromie Williams.

One particularly egregious case involved a serious assault during the Vancouver riot last June. A 17-year-old girl named Chelsea Bossons had her jaw broken by an East Indian man, but Jeromie Williams made up a mysterious witness who implicated her boyfriend. We can only assume he did this to generate traffic to his (pay-per-visit) Examiner articles, collect more accolades like this, and to con his way back onto Ezra Levant’s show on the Sun News Network (now featured prominently on Jeromie’s CV on his site).

To say nothing of the impact on this young woman, her family, her boyfriend, his family, and so on, this apparently caused great trouble for the Vancouver Police Department and Crown prosecutors in British Columbia, who were stuck chasing phantom witnesses instead of the thug who actually attacked Ms. Bossons so brutally.

4. Jeromie Williams Vows to Picket Breast Cancer Research Fundraising Events

As we have previously noted, Jeromie has pledged to “picket” the next Pink Ribbon event in Montreal. He is apparently outraged that these events, which promote breast cancer research, education, advocacy, health services and social support programs, are “not inclusive of men, transgendered and minorities.”

He is just demonstrably wrong, of course. As usual. In fact, the Susan G. Komen Foundation includes and benefits people of all races and genders through their research.

Some men wear pink ties throughout the year “to raise awareness, inspire involvement and spark conversations about the importance of breast health.” The Foundation even sells pink handguns, which have proven popular with gun enthusiasts, as well as innocent women who have been threatened by creepy cyberstalkers like Jeromie Williams.

3. Jeromie Williams Steals From Women

Though we are not certain, we suspect that Jeromie’s various ChipIn scams have disproportionately affected women. To our knowledge, for example, women run the Operation Sled Dog rescue group, and they went into significant debt in order to rescue 25 Huskies from a dog sledding company owner. When Jeromie embezzled $1,800 from the Pet Pardons ChipIn accounts set up for OSD, he was stealing from them.

He later slandered the women on his blog, accusing them of killing the dogs, or breeding the dogs, or who knows what else. Just more of the same, really.

Earlier he apparently embezzled up to $1,177 from the women at the Linda Blair World Heart Foundation, an organization dedicated to rescuing animals in California, and up to $544 from the women at the Humane Society International in Canada.

2. Jeromie Williams Was An Internet Pornographer

While Jeromie would have you believe that he’s an anti-pornography crusader, he worked as a “Social Media Specialist” at Playboy Plus Entertainment Inc., according to his LinkedIn page. We gather he didn’t last long there.

Still, Jeromie Williams, who once complained about inappropriate images showing up on Facebook walls and news feeds in his Examiner articles, had a job where he posted those very same inappropriate images to Facebook [WARNING: Last link NSFW]. Not to mention that Jeromie also maintains an active Stickam account. This site, which the New York Times has described as “icky”, is notorious as a playground for internet predators and pedophiles.

In any case, Jeromie now openly brags about his history working for “Team Heffner” at Playboy (though he doesn’t appear to know how to spell Hefner’s name).

Of course, many women’s rights organizations argue that hardcore pornography is degrading and disrespectful to women, and lowers them back to a time when they were looked upon as mere sex objects.

Speaking of which…

1. Jeromie Williams Blogs About Shutting Young Women Up With Giant Black Penises

No kidding:

This one wins the disgusting misogynist of the year prize, I think.

As our friend Wray Smith would say, quod erat demonstrandum.

When you consider that Jeromie also has a history of calling young boysfaggy,” and attacking aboriginal Canadians, you can see the evidence is really starting to pile up: Jeromie Williams is a disgusting, thieving, misogynist bigot. No reputable organization would have anything to do with him: The Examiner, The Gaily, even Playboy… all have cut ties with him.

Incredibly, however, Jeromie continues to serve as Director of Operations at Pet Pardons Canada, despite the fact that we have posted evidence that he was breaking the organization’s rules, and stealing from various ChipIn accounts. We have also told them about all his other outrageous behaviour, some of which is listed above.

They just don’t care, which tells you all you need to know about Pet Pardons.

UPDATE (August 3, 2012): Well, if you were counting, it took only four (4) days for Jeromie Williams to threaten yet another woman. Just pathetic.

Toronto Pet Daily Asks: Is Jeromie Stealing More Donations?

Today the Toronto Pet Daily asks whether Jeromie Williams, the Director of Operations for Pet Pardons Canada, has stolen donations intended to help rescue over 25 Huskies from a dog sledding company owner:

According to Operation Sled Dogs, the ChipIn account amassed thousands of dollars, none of which was forwarded to them.  The organization contacted Mr. Williams and Chris Hoar, president of Pet Pardons, to inquire. For some time they did not receive a reply. To bring awareness to the situation, Operation Sled Dogs went public with the information via social networking, causing animal lovers to question the facts and the whereabouts of the donations. In addition, Operation Sled Dogs directed people who had donated to request a refund from  Pet Pardons or Jeromie Williams. With this pressure Pet Pardons turned over some of the money, which was not completely acceptable to Operation Sled Dogs.

This is where things take a turn, the events not only hurting representatives of Operation Sled Dogs, but the rescued dogs as well. There began a war of words between the two organizations. On the one hand you had Operation Sled Dogs representatives admonishing Pet Pardons, refusing to stop until they received all of the donated funds. On the other, there seems to be a lack of a concrete response from either Mr. Hoar or Mr. Williams. From what I have read the actual responses provided by Mr. Williams came in the form of derogatory emails and one very threatening voicemail, in which the Pet Pardons Canadian director allegedly states, “…you’re going down……I have your home address, I have your home phone number, I know exactly where you are.”

Incredible. Notice his threats are eerily reminiscent of those he sent to Kim Johnston and myself earlier this year. To wit, “First you go down, then Topher is next,” “I already know your address,” “I know where you are…” and so on. Sound familiar?

Toronto Pet Daily continues:

Eventually, it appears as though Mr. Williams finally agreed to give the rest of the funds to the rescue group, as he made the offer in the form of an ultimatum and told Operation Sled Dogs, “You have 48 hours.” As it stands now, Operation Sled Dogs has still not received the balance of the funds, and Mr. Williams has taken to his blog accusing the organization of killing puppies. …

What is Pet Pardons thinking? Through Facebook, the group has solicited thousands of dollars in donations, and this instance is not the first in which the group has been accused of stealing funds, nor is it the first time that Mr. Williams has been accused of threatening someone. Is Pet Pardons really in it for the animals? One can only hope, though with regard to this particular issue the organization has done nothing to prove otherwise. They have not offered a statement on their Facebook site, nor have they responded to my questions about the allegations.

One would think that in an effort to placate any detractors, Mr. Hoar or Mr. Williams would offer a statement. One would also think that if indeed Mr. Williams did act in such a fashion, Pet Pardons would do everything in its power to distance itself from an employee who berates and threatens other animal rescue representatives. Why is the organization still working alongside an individual who has been accused of referring to someone’s children as “faggy”? Above all, why is an organization that purports to HELP ANIMALS working alongside an individual who allegedly threatened to HARM A DOG?

Perhaps as some have said, Pet Pardons is in cahoots with a small number of nearby rescue organizations and are simply stealing from well intentioned people. Perhaps Pet Pardons is simply sitting back as more publicity is drawn to their organization. Perhaps this is all blown out of proportion and a select group of people have an axe to grind with Mr. Hoar and/or Mr. Williams. It certainly does not appear to be the case, as many detractors have stated that they were only brought together through research and discovered the only thing they have in common is being wronged by Pet Pardons, Chris Hoar, Jeromie Williams, or all three.

Exactly. Read the whole article here.
