The Hoaxes of Jeromie Williams

As we continue to update our sites on the criminal fraud artist Jeromie Williams, one of our longtime members suggested that we compile a list of the hoaxes he has perpetrated in recent years. This is by no means an exhaustive list, and we will continue to update it, but here are the top ten, or at least, the first ten hoaxes of Jeromie Williams that we have listed:

  1. The LiberalAmerica.org Theft Hoax: Shortly after he was fired on December 5, 2013, by the Editor-in-Chief of LiberalAmerica.org, Tiffany Willis, for inappropriate behaviour, Jeromie tried to “get back at” her by accusing her of theft. Specifically, he claimed that he “designed, was never paid for, and gave no permission for them to use” the LiberalAmerica.org logo. The truth is that a professional designed the logo, was paid, and gave permission, and Jeromie’s input into the process was negligible. He continues to make threats and demand payment for work he never performed.
  2. The Fukushima Radiation Hoax: On April 12, 2013, Jeromie began writing a series of posts that urged everyone to “freak out” about radiation from Fukushima, Japan. He proceeded to try to scare people in North America into thinking their food and water is unsafe, and into buying $350 water filtration systems (from which Jeromie would be paid a $50 commission) so they could “wash [their] food with soap and rinse it in filtered water.” Ultimately, this nonsense has been discredited by everyone from the Nashville Public Policy Examiner to Dr. Adrian Wong, who declared that “Jeromie Williams is a liar. The article he wrote is a lie, based on a fake map that he lied about. This is worse than playing the lottery. At least in a lottery, you have a shot at getting it right.”
  3. The Cleveland “Dogs Tied to Train Tracks” Hoax: On August 16, 2012, Jeromie published and promoted a Cayr Ariel Wulff story about “three dogs that were tied to a train track near Scranton Rd. on Cleveland’s west side leaving two dogs dead, and one traumatized.” Again, it was all a lie. The Cleveland Plain Dealer reported that “Police have determined that no dogs were killed Aug. 10 while tied to railroad tracks in the Tremont neighborhood.”
  4. The Fairfield “Burning Dogs Alive” Hoax: In August 2012, Jeromie edited, published, and promoted a series of articles by Wulff that falsely alleged that the Fairfield County Dog Shelter near Lancaster, Ohio, was burning dogs alive. The Ohio SPCA and the local paper, the Lancaster Eagle-Gazette, reported that there was no evidence to support this, and one of Wulff’s “sources” subsequently admitted that it was all just a hoax. Still, it resulted in many death threats against shelter and county officials Mike Miller, Mike Kiger and Judy Shupe.
  5. The Operation Sled Dogs “Killing Puppies” Hoax: After Jeromie was exposed as a thief and embezzler for withholding thousands of dollars from the Canadian animal rescue group Operation Sled Dogs, he wrote a disgusting article slandering the group, accusing them of “kill[ing] puppies,” and included a picture of a dog in a garbage bag. (While one dog was euthanized, there was never any suggestion of negligence, let alone intentionally “killing puppies,” on the part of the group.)
  6. The Nathan Kotylak Plea Bargain Hoax (Part II): On December 22, 2011, Jeromie published an article about a fake plea bargain for Nathan Kotylak, the notorious Vancouver rioter, which would allow him to escape charges entirely. However, there was no plea bargain, and, in fact, Kotylak was charged a few days later, on December 27. Jeromie claimed, falsely, that his source had been a USCIS agent, and then (when caught in a lie) claimed that it was Kim Johnston. He was fired by the Examiner.com shortly thereafter for fabricating events, people, and even supposed witnesses to serious crimes in his articles. He later called the Examiner a Third World sweat shop and continued to lie about Nathan Kotylak.
  7. The Nathan Kotylak Plea Bargain Hoax (Part I): In an appearance on Ezra Levant’s show on the Sun News Network on November 2, 2011, Jeromie claimed that Nathan Kotylak was charged, but only with participating in a riot (not arson), despite the fact that he was caught, on tape, torching a police car. He described this decision as “mind-bloggling” and then attacked the Vancouver Police Department. However, no riot-related charges were approved until a month later, on November 30, and Nathan Kotylak was not charged until December 27. Jeromie simply made up a series of damning facts in order to get on television (now featured prominently on Jeromie’s CV on his site).
  8. The Shelly Comeon Hoax: In late 2011, Jeromie wrote a series of articles about “Shelly Comeon,” a Montreal woman who supposedly created the Facebook group 100,000 strong to ban Nathan Kotylak from the Canada Olympic team. He even “interviewed” her. The only problem is that she doesn’t exist. “Shelly Comeon” is one of Jeromie’s sock puppet accounts.
  9. The Chelsea Bossons Assault Witness Hoax: On July 24, 2011, Jeromie published an article about a fake witness, that implicated an Asian man, Ash Gayat, in breaking the jaw of his girlfriend, 17-year-old Chelsea Bossons, during the Vancouver riot. The witness did not exist, and Gayat was innocent. To say nothing of the impact on this young woman, her family, her boyfriend, his family, and so on, this 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.
  10. The 2011 Canadian Election Crime Hoax: On May 2, 2011, Jeromie published an article claiming that the prime minister of Canada, Stephen Harper, had violated election laws by campaigning on the day of the election, and that he could be imprisoned, or have his party deregistered. One problem: campaigning on Election Day is entirely legal in Canada. Real journalists subsequently condemned Jeromie for “bogus reporting.”

Former Sun News Guest Jeromie Williams Attacks Sun News

As I reported previously, the criminal fraud artist Jeromie Williams conned his way onto Ezra Levant’s show on the Sun News Network back in 2012. Here’s what I wrote:

… [Jeromie Williams] opposed the creation of Sun TV in the first place, complaining that its hosts would be “venomous bobble heads” who would “[flood] the airwaves with corporate sponsored conservative bullshit.” Presumably, that does not apply whenever Jeromie appears as a guest on Sun TV. Particularly on the show of Ezra Levant, an article about whom prompted Jeromie, not so long ago, to describe Alberta as “our red neck province.”

As an Alberta-hating NDP supporter, who was deeply involved in the campaign to have Ann Coulter banned from Canada, who predicted the “Rise of the Orange [NDP] Phoenix” after Jack Layton’s death, and who has repeatedly libeled the Prime Minister of Canada (describing him as guilty of crimes for campaigning on election day, which is entirely legal), Jeromie is a rather odd guest to see on Ezra’s show.

Well, today Jeromie is celebrating the recent announcement that the CRTC will not grant the Sun News request for mandatory carriage:

Perhaps this could have something to do with the fact they will never invite him on air again, since this blog has revealed that he is, well, a criminal fraud artist.

UPDATE: On a November 7 trolling attack, Jeromie compared Michelle Rempel, a Conservative, Calgary MP, to a “hooker” and an ad for “Russian Brides.” His tweets, amazingly, were later quoted by Evan Solomon on CBC News.

More Lies from Pet Pardons News Spawn Hatred, Death Threats

Pet Pardons EnquirerJust last week we reported that Jeromie Williams was once again fabricating stories, events and witnesses as the “Managing Editor” of Pet Pardons News.

On August 16, Cayr Ariel Wulff wrote a story about “three dogs that were tied to a train track near Scranton Rd. on Cleveland’s west side leaving two dogs dead, and one traumatized”:

The employee witnessed the man tying the dog to the tracks and then moving away and taking photographs or video. Unfortunately, the suspect was too far away for the rail employee to get a detailed description, and the man was gone by the time the employee had reached the isolated area of tracks.

The train had passed by that time, but miraculously, the little dog had survived. Two other dogs were not as lucky.

The rail worker found their mangled bodies along the same stretch of isolated tracks.

Of course, this story is a lie. Practically every word of every sentence is false.

The truth is rather less sensational. In a story entitled “Dogs were not tied to track and killed by train in Tremont area,” the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that:

Police have determined that no dogs were killed Aug. 10 while tied to railroad tracks in the Tremont neighborhood, but one live dog was rescued after a train passed over it.

A train crew radioed a Norfolk Southern bridge tender to report that they ran over a dog apparently tied to the tracks because they could not stop in time, police said Friday night. It was later determined that the dog was not tied but that her leash was wedged between two rails, probably by accident.

In other words, there was no man. He didn’t tie the dogs to the train tracks. He didn’t film them being killed by a train. Indeed, there was only one dog, and it wasn’t killed. There were no mangled bodies. No rail worker discovered them. It was all a lie.

Now, that didn’t stop Pet Pardons News readers from threatening to kill this imaginary man. Let’s “tie his ass to the tracks,” is the general consensus, although one wants to see him hanged, and another would prefer if he was “thrown to the wolves.” Another wants to drive the train over him, and others would look forward to hearing him “scream in fear.”

Again: This person does not exist. No one tied these dogs to the train tracks. Indeed, no dogs were killed by the train.

Here’s a (very small) sample of representative comments:

You might say, well, no harm done. If the person doesn’t exist, they can’t actually kill him, right?

The problem is that Pet Pardons News often makes up horrific stories about real people, too. As both Wray and I have reported, a series of disgusting articles by Cayr Ariel Wulff (and edited by Jeromie) has falsely claimed that employees at the Fairfield County Dog Shelter in Ohio are burning dogs alive, based on unnamed “eyewitness accounts.” Wulff also claimed that they had the full support of the shelter’s director, Mike Miller, and county commissioners Mike Kiger and Judy Shupe.

How do you think her readers responded?

Well, by demanding that these (very real) people be gassed or burned alive, of course. As Judy Ruff says, “lets burn people alive.” Sally Greulich agrees: “I would love to … throw you in a fire.” Elizabeth Yancey shouts “GOD I WISH I COULD SHOVE ALL OF YOU IN THE FIRE ALIVE AND LET YOU DIE…” Angel Williams chillingly says “I’m going 2 kill those people 4 what they did.” J.D. Knoblock offers to pull the “triger.” Sarah Stegle offers that it’s a “Good thing they don’t post these peoples addresses. They’d be dead within the hour… Personally, I’d do something awful.”

I could go on. Here’s just a small sample of the comments from the first article alone:

And indeed, by all accounts, Mike Miller, Mike Kiger and Judy Shupe, not to mention shelter employees, have all received many death threats since Cayr’s first article was published 10 days ago.

So, what does Cayr have to say for herself?

I can’t control what my readers say to other people. I do not condone the death threats.

Really? She writes false stories about a man tying dogs to train tracks to be run over and killed, or lies about shelter employees burning dogs alive, and she’s not looking to incite harassment and death threats against these people?

To quote Pet Pardons, that’s just sick:

Pet Pardons is a sick, poisonous organization, full of liars, scam artists, and criminals. Let’s not forget that Jeromie Williams has become infamous for his own long history of criminal harassment and death threats, for which he is currently under investigation by Canadian and American police.

And now Cayr Ariel Wulff apparently thinks nothing of writing demonstrably false stories to incite hatred, harassment and death threats against other people.

They deserve each other.

Shame on all of them.

Complaints Lodged as Jeromie Williams Violates Google News Policy

Pet Pardons EnquirerBack in January, this blog revealed Jeromie Williams‘ long history of fabricating events, people, and even witnesses to serious crimes in his Examiner.com articles. Like the National Enquirer, he simply makes things up, the more sensational the better, in order to attract attention, 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). And the more sensational the story, the more clicks, and the more pennies he can earn.

For example:

  • On May 2, 2011, Jeromie published an article claiming that the prime minister of Canada, Stephen Harper, had violated election laws by campaigning on the day of the election, and that he could be imprisoned, or his party deregistered. One problem: campaigning on Election Day is entirely legal.
  • On July 24, 2011, Jeromie published an article about a fake witness, implicating a man in breaking the jaw of his girlfriend, 17-year-old Chelsea Bossons, during the Vancouver riot. The witness did not exist, and the man was innocent. 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.
  • In late 2011, Jeromie wrote a series of articles about “Shelly Comeon,” a Montreal woman who supposedly created the Facebook group 100,000 strong to ban Nathan Kotylak from the Canada Olympic team. He even “interviewed” her. The only problem is: She doesn’t exist. “Shelly Comeon” is one of Jeromie’s sock puppet accounts.
  • On December 22, 2011, Jeromie published an article about a fake plea bargain for Nathan Kotylak, the notorious Vancouver rioter. He claimed, falsely, that his source was a USCIS agent, and then (when caught in a lie) claimed that it was Kim Johnston, the creator of this blog.

Unfortunately for Jeromie, this blog (along with actual journalists like Shane Woodford at CKNW, Peter Meiszner at Global BC, and Daniel Dickin at the Prince Arthur Herald) refuted his false stories, and the Examiner soon fired him.

Jeromie then threatened Kim Johnston, her sons, and even her dogs, using homophobic epithets, and The Gaily then fired him as well.

So you can imagine how shocked I was to see that Jeromie is now working as Director of Operations at Pet Pardons Canada and the “Managing Editor” of Pet Pardons News. What reputable news organization would hire a known and serial liar as an editor, let alone manager? Let alone one who has threatened women, children, and dogs, and used homophobic epithets?

The answer is simple: None would.

Pet Pardons News is not an honest, reliable news service.

Indeed, it has violated Google News policies for months. While Google News requires unbiased, original reporting on real news, Pet Pardons News articles are generally copied from real news sites, and parts are simply made up out of whole cloth. Some articles cannot be described as “news” at all (“Cat falls in love with puppies on internet!!!“). Many articles are also as sensational as possible, with ridiculous photos, including dogs in ovens, as you might expect from a tabloid, not a real news source. Most egregiously, Jeromie Williams has used Google News to spread slanderous lies about others, in some cases actually inciting death threats.

On April 17, 2012, Jeromie Williams published a story on Pet Pardons News slandering the Operation Sled Dog (OSD) rescue group. (While it has been deleted from Pet Pardons News, it is still available on his personal blog). He claimed, falsely, that OSD had killed puppies during their rescue operation. What Jeromie did not disclose, however, was that he had embezzled several thousand dollars from OSD, and that when Facebook groups and petitions were started to demand that he give the money to OSD, Jeromie began a long campaign of criminal harassment and death threats against OSD members (including this slanderous article on Google News).

More recently, a series of disgusting articles by Cayr Ariel Wulff (and edited by Jeromie) in August 2012 claimed that employees at the Fairfield County Dog Shelter in Ohio are burning dogs alive, based on unnamed “eyewitness accounts.” Given Jeromie’s history of simply making up fake witnesses, we called the shelter to enquire. As we suspected, the director confirmed that there were no complaints of dogs being burned alive at Fairfield. In fact, this issue was not even mentioned at the County Commissioners’ meeting, as Wulff had claimed. Reports from reputable news agencies, such as NBC, do not mention it either. Think about it: If there were eyewitness reports of dogs being burned alive, that issue would have dominated the meeting, and the subsequent news coverage. Instead, it showed up on only one site, which happens to be run by one of the least trustworthy men on the internet.

Disgustingly, Wulff’s articles give out the contact information of the shelter and county commissioners, and incite harassment and death threats against them, all based on a lie. And indeed, as she notes herself, the commissioners and the shelter have since received many harassing calls, including death threats. We urge them to retain counsel and consider all legal options available to them. We’re sympathetic to the goal of ending euthanasia in shelters as much as possible, but we cannot see how making up fake witnesses and phony stories can help advance those goals. In fact, these lies will almost certainly be counterproductive, as they divert much needed attention away from real animal rights abuses in other shelters.

We also have to note the irony that a group supposedly dedicated to “Pet Pardons” didn’t take the opportunity to try to get any of these dogs adopted. Instead, Cayr actually advocates lethal injection:

According to the Change.org website, to kill an animal by carbon monoxide poisoning costs $4.98 per animal versus $2.29 per animal by lethal injection (EBI=Euthanasia By Injection). The argument to continue gassing can only be made as a means of convenience, since a group of animals can be done at once, as opposed to individually by injection.

Amy Bogart, with the Humane Society of the United States, said if the only thing preventing the county from going to a lethal injection form of euthanasia is the cost of training, her organization is willing to pay the cost of the training and setup.

Lastly, even some Pet Pardons supporters are outraged at the strong anti-GOP bias in Pet Pardons “News” articles smearing Mitt Romney and Steve King. As Barbara Spiegel notes, these articles are clearly biased and partisan, in violation of the policies of Google News.

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:

10. Jeromie Williams Cyberstalks and Harasses Women Online

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 Concludes Jeromie Williams Stole Donations

Following up on its earlier story, today the Toronto Pet Daily has concluded that 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:

Earlier this week, I published an article detailing accusations made by a Canadian rescue organization against “Pet Pardons”, an online organization that has the mandate, “To End the Killing & No More Homeless Pets by January 1, 2015.”  I have received no response from any representative of Pet Pardons. The way I see it, the organization is hoping that this issue will quietly go away and be forgotten. It is arrogant on their part to believe they can simply ignore the questions posed to them by concerned citizens as to whether or not any of their members are pocketing donations and deceiving the public. I’ll let the readers form their own opinions.

I will say however, that in cases where one party refuses to be transparent to those providing their hard earned income, it makes it easier to conclude their motives are anything but noble. Just look at the OSPCA and that organization’s refusal to be transparent to Ontario citizens. The result? A loss of thousands upon thousands of dollars in donations. Through their silence Pet Pardons representatives have thrown their credibility out the window. If they think this issue will go away any time soon, they are horribly mistaken. Real advocates who feel any animals have been wronged or that a “rescue” has deceived the public will not stop exposing the situation until relevant concerns have been addressed.

Let’s look at some of the concerns that have yet to be addressed, and some new allegations that have recently come to light :

– Apparently Jeromie Williams, a self-described “Social Media Specialist” and director of Pet Pardons Canada, has sent dozens of threatening emails and voice messages to those who have questioned his motives in soliciting donations for cause upon cause on various “ChipIn” pages. God knows if any of the collected donations have ever actually been distributed into the right hands.

– Pet Pardons president Chris Hoar has offered no explanation as to where these funds are, and his lack of communication implies he has no concerns whatsoever that Williams is pocketing these donations. Nor has he expressed concern in regard to Mr. Williams’ alleged threats against one woman, her sons, and her dog. [see here for more information]

– Pet Pardons has refused to address the situation on its Facebook page. When people post LEGITIMATE concerns and questions, their posts are deleted and they are then banned from the page.

We wouldn’t be surprised if they are being deleted and banned from the site by Jeromie Williams himself. Certainly this is how he reacted to anyone who questioned his false Examiner articles on the (now defunct) Nathan Kotylak Facebook group (including myself, Kim Johnston, and many others).

Toronto Pet Daily continues:

To my estimation, Pet Pardons is nothing but a front for a select group of greedy, manipulative people who care more about fattening their wallets than they ever will about any animal in distress. You see, this is what illegitimate rescuers do : they tug at your heartstrings. They show you a picture (often of an animal that doesn’t even exist) and provide you with a story so full of horrifying details that you, as a caring animal lover, don’t even give yourself enough time to consider NOT donating. Let’s not forget they also give you a small window of time to donate, after which there will be deadly consequences for one poor animal. Once they have your money you receive no receipt and no further information.

Here’s what else these groups will do. If you question them in any way, they will cite cases where they have actually helped animals in distress, and expect that to placate you. It shouldn’t. You should not be supporting an organization that properly uses your donations SOME OF THE TIME.

In an update, they note that Operation Sled Dogs has released a financial statement showing all donations received and how they were used. Unfortunately, it appears the organization incurred a loss of approximately $1,500, which is (by coincidence) roughly the amount that Jeromie Williams has apparently kept for himself. Shameful.

Read the whole article here, and please visit The Pet Advocates Network for more details on this scandal, or the OSD/ChipIn Facebook page.

Also, as you may know, this blog has previously reported on the ChipIn scams of Jeromie Williams, amongst his other illegal, fraudulent and reprehensible activities.

Jeromie Williams Threatens Animal Rescuers (Again): “I’ve got you guys lined up in my sights”

GailyThere is more shocking and disturbing news today from the Pet Advocates Network, as Jeromie Williams, the Director of Operations for Pet Pardons Canada, has yet again threatened volunteer animal rescuers using violent, abusive and obscene language.

Jeromie was angry, apparently, that they have started a Facebook group and online petition to ask him to transfer money he still owes them, and, in particular, that they dared to link to this blog, which he calls “crazy” and “fucking smoke and mirrors bullshit.” (That is not what The Examiner or The Gaily concluded, presumably, when they terminated all connections with Jeromie earlier this year.) [UPDATE: OSD members have indicated that they did not create the OSD/ChipIn Facebook site. It was apparently created by an interested third party.]

Briefly, as we have reported previously, on March 27, Jeromie created a ChipIn account to raise money (purportedly) to help support the rescue over 25 Huskies from a dog sledding company owner in Quebec. Donors were promised that “On the ground for the rescue will be Jeromie Williams, the Managing Editor for the Pet Pardons News & Blog, making sure that every dollar raised tonight goes as far as it can.” Unfortunately, though the ChipIn raised $6,180.84 (USD), those dollars didn’t go much further than Jeromie Williams’ bank account. After incredible effort and pressure, Jeromie transferred $4,000, in four $1,000 increments, leaving approximately $1,800 owing (after USD-CDN conversion).

Audio of a telephone conversation between Jeromie and OSD rescuers concerning this outstanding $1,800 has been posted online:

Here is an annotated transcript:

Jeromie Williams: … So, you’re implicated through having taken the money [unintelligible] and saying you’re a non-profit organization when you’re not…

Female Animal Rescuer:We never said we were a non-profit organization.

Jeromie: You have it right on your Facebook page. It says non-profit organization. I screen-capped it. Don’t go ahead and change it. You promote yourselves as a non-profit organization. And, you’re putting up bullshit about me. And if that page isn’t down tonight, I swear to God by the weekend you’ll be in jail. Or you’ll be charged. Or you’ll have to be [unintelligible] to your house.

Topher’s Comment: Join the party folks. Jeromie threatened to have me “thrown in jail” back in January. Kim, too. And maybe her sons, though he mostly threatened them with deportation. We’re still waiting for the police to show up. It’s taking quite a while, though. I wonder if they’re busy with other things… And as I’ve written previously, it’s quite odd for Jeromie to berate the animal rescue group (OSD) for supposedly misrepresenting themselves as a non-profit group on Facebook, when they have lost $1,500 on their rescue operation, and Jeromie is (simultaneously) sending them photos of the $1,800 he raised for them but refuses to transfer. As I noted above, donors were promised that “every dollar” would be turned over. So, really, who is misrepresenting themselves here?

Female Animal Rescuer:And what about you for fraud?

Jeromie: I have your address. I know people who know where you live. And the police will come. So that if it doesn’t get taken down, you know, I’ll give you by Friday night, I’ll give you by Friday night, if it doesn’t get taken down, you are going to be in shit. You are going to be… because you are the only person who has taken money from me. And I can, I can track you through bank records. You’re the only person who has had contact with me. And I’d still come after you, because you’re the only one that I can. So you need to tell your people to cut it the fuck out and stop lying, because you know they’re lying about me.

Topher’s Comment: Back in January, Jeromie claimed to be able to “pinpoint” Kim’s location via her IP address, “within 50 feet.” (He was lying, of course.) While he also threatened that the police (FBI!) would come, the meaning of those comments was ambiguous, as he clearly threatened to come to Kim’s house himself. “See you in Boulder next week. Ticket is already booked,” he wrote. “First you go down, then Topher is next.” The threat of physical violence is implicit in the statement.

Female Animal Rescuer:Lying about you?

Jeromie: The receipt is on the table.

Female Animal Rescuer:Lying about you?

Jeromie: It’s on the table… [unintelligible] fucking receipt.

Female Animal Rescuer:Lying about you?

Jeromie: And you know it.

Female Animal Rescuer: Jeromie, lying about you?

Jeromie: And you know it.

Female Animal Rescuer:Lying about you?

Jeromie: But you won’t show it.

Female Animal Rescuer:Jeromie, you’ve collected $6,000. We’ve received $4,000 out of that $6,000.

Jeromie: No, because [unintelligible] $5,700 of which you’ve gotten $4,000.

Female Animal Rescuer:We’ve got $4,000 out the $6,000.

Jeromie: No, because [unintelligible] funds to Canadian funds, and you know that.

Female Animal Rescuer:And you didn’t lose $2,000 in, in you know, turning it into Canadian funds. Please, it’s at par.

Jeromie: $400, $400, 400, from Canadian to American. Or from American to Canadian.

Female Animal Rescuer:So that means that’s $5,700, so that means there’s another $1,700 that should come to us.

Jeromie: When you shall receive. And when you stop…

Female Animal Rescuer:When I shall receive? When I shall receive?

Jeromie: Because you gave those fucking dogs to breeders and you breeded them on the way.

Female Animal Rescuer:We didn’t give them…

Male Animal Rescuer: … bred the dogs on the way, by the way.

Jeromie: Somebody from your inner circle, from your core members, showed me e-mails, showed me everything you guys are doing. You guys don’t realise what I have [unintelligible]. You don’t realise the information that I have. I can destroy all of you at any given moment, and I’m giving you the opportunity to not make me do that. One of your core members has given me all the information. I know how many puppies died, okay?

Topher’s Comment: We’ve heard all this before too. In January, Jeromie warned us that “people who you think are your allies are completely on my side.” Well, oops, those “people” were, in reality, fake, sock puppet accounts created and controlled by Jeromie Williams. They would send us threats, and post lies to support Jeromie, but that’s about it. It’s also worth noting here that Jeromie Williams has been removed from his position at the Examiner after this blog uncovered his long history of writing about 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.

Female Animal Rescuer:How many puppies died?

Jeromie: I know, I know that Mike was breeding those dogs on the way. I know that, sorry not Mike, I know that the guy that Mike was friends, Bill or whatever his name is, the one in, in, in, in, B.C., or, or, or, ah, Alberta, I know that he’s a 70 year old man who’s a, who’s a, who has no way to take care of these dogs, and also a known breeder. I know everything.

Topher’s Comment: In, in, in, in…. or, or, or, ah…. Notice he doesn’t answer the question. On his blog, he says one. Also, more than one: “Amateur Husky Rescue In Canada Kills Puppies During Rescue.” One, many, who knows really. All that’s clear is that I wouldn’t trust Jeromie Williams to run anything, let alone handle donations for legitimate animal rescue organizations.

Female Animal Rescuer:Oh you do, eh?

Jeromie: Yes. I do. I know everything. So what I’m telling you is, it’s in your best interest to drop this bullshit scam you guys are doing, take the $1,700, and shut the fuck up, and go away. Because you’re not going to win, and you’re going to lose, because I have all the information.

Topher’s Comment: Compare to the advice of “Stephen Equality” (a confirmed Jeromie sock puppet) to Kim Johnston back in December: “do the right thing here and stop making up crazy shit… Your best move now, is to remove your comments, and walk away.”

Female Animal Rescuer:You do. It’s wonderful to know that you have all the information.

Jeromie: And you don’t even know what I have.

Female Animal Rescuer:The thing is…

Jeromie: You don’t even know what I have.

Female Animal Rescuer:Well, you don’t know what we also have more information on you too Jeromie.

Male Animal Rescuer:[laughs]

Jeromie: No, there’s nothing to have on me. You guys know, you guys know it’s all fucking smoke and mirrors bullshit. You have [unintelligible] up that crazy blog people wrote about me. Good for you. Wow. But I have information from someone who is in your core members, [unintelligible] sending me e-mails, showing me pictures, and sending me e-mails… [unintelligible]. I know everything. So, I would suggest you take down that little site about ChipIn-ing, I would suggest that you guys swallow your pride, and stop trying to scam me and Pet Pardons, stop… [unintelligible] first donors to give $500 to the cause. That $1,000 that came from, not from… [unintelligible] was part of that money [unintelligible] and she’s desperate for money. So, that’s what it comes down to in the end. Really, that’s what it comes down to, is… I’ve got all the info. I’ve got you guys lined up in my sights. I’m giving you the opportunity to help yourself, and just drop all the bullshit, and just take what’s owed to you, and go off into the sunset. I also know who the guy is. And I also know where he, where the, the, the dog [unintelligible] and I have his address [unintelligible] fucking adopt [unintelligible] …

Topher’s Comment: Firstly, it’s rather incredible to see Jeromie Williams threaten these animal rescuers using this terminology, as the Pet Advocates Network has noted: “This is particularly disturbing as this violent term alludes to shooting a target with a gun. It is also a hunter’s term, ironic since [Pet Pardons] is ostensibly against hunting.” Secondly, note that Jeromie is accusing OSD of scamming him, whilst he is, in fact, scamming them, or more accurately, his own donors, who thought they were donating to OSD.

Female Animal Rescuer:Okay, um.

Jeromie: [unintelligible] I’m still getting [unintelligible] death threats.

Female Animal Rescuer:Well, I know you’re wanted by the SQ for uttering threats, and so because…

Jeromie: I’m not… [unintelligible] anybody…

Female Animal Rescuer:You are wanted by the SQ Jeromie, and I am going to place a cease and desist on you for uttering threats, and harassing me.

Jeromie: But I’m not uttering [unintelligible] and I haven’t… [unintelligible]

Female Animal Rescuer:You’re not uttering threats? Please.

Jeromie: I’m not uttering threats. I’m telling you the facts, I’m telling you that…

Female Animal Rescuer:Well I’m telling you the facts too, that you are telling me to do stuff, and, “or else,” and that’s a threat.

Jeromie: [unintelligible]

Female Animal Rescuer:You’re telling me you know where I live. What are you going to do? You’re going to come and do something to my house?

Jeromie: I’ve never done anything about your house, and you’re lying now.

Female Animal Rescuer:You start threatening me or my house or my family, that’s uttering a threat.

Jeromie: Oh my God, that’s fucking crazy [unintelligible]. Just stop the bullshit, and this all goes away, you get your [money] and you put it in your bank account, and you can go and transfer dogs to breeders as much as you want. [unintelligible]

Female Animal Rescuer:I’ve never transferred a dog to a breeder in my life. Never transferred a dog to a breeder. They have all been neutered. All of them. And so you don’t know what you’re talking about. Whoever is feeding you information is feeding you lies. And if it’s Kelly Wilson, I wouldn’t rely too much on what Kelly Wilson has to say.

[beep beep beep]

Female Animal Rescuer:He hung up on me.

As the Pet Advocates Network notes, the rescuer maintains her professional tone throughout the conversation. The contrast with Jeromie Williams is striking.

Please consider signing the online petition to demand that Jeromie Williams turn over the remaining $1,800 to the animal rescuers at OSD without any further delay.
