Another 30,000 Affidavits Delivered to Olympia

On March 24, 2022, the Washington State Tea Room served another 15,000 notarized affidavits to elected Washington state officials, notifying them that they were in default of responding. Some offices accepted them: Governor Jay Inslee, Lieutenant Governor Denny Heck, and Attorney General Bob Ferguson. Some offices did not: Speaker of the House Laurie Jinkins, Congressman Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell. 20,000 affidavits attesting to constitutional violations were delivered on March 4, while 10,000 documents to U.S. senators remain in limbo. 

According to Brianna Mattes of the Washington State Tea Room, the deliveries went much more smoothly this time. 

Mattes said in a video after the deliveries, “It is my view, and I believe my team’s view, that this is one hundred percent because the publicity of our independent media outlets, such as CJTV and Bards Eye News, as well as our viewers, such as on Facebook, had caused that change. That’s something to celebrate, support, and get excited about. When our government is seeing what we are doing, they are much more able and willing to participate in our constitutional rights. And I think we, as the American people, will get further as we publicize what is exactly going on in our government.” 

The triple destination journey began in the state capitol. Volunteers rolled boxes of documents on trolleys through the marble halls with “Please Stand here, Social Distancing” signs embedded onto the floors. They delivered thirteen boxes to Governor Jay Inslee’s office. An Inslee representative wearing a black mask signed for the delivery as a Washington State Patrol officer unloaded the thirteen boxes from the trolleys. 

Because they were short on trolleys, the volunteers returned to their vehicles and retrieved more boxes. After the volunteers were back inside the capitol, a representative from Denny Heck’s office, who also wore a black mask, signed for the affidavits.

The volunteers then drove their last set of boxes down the street to the attorney general’s office. Brianna Mattes went through two weeks of e-mail exchanges with this office before they were willing to provide an advanced acceptance of the affidavits. On the other side of a glass window, a representative wearing a black mask signed for the affidavits. 

The Washington State Tea Room had hoped to make prior signed delivery arrangements with three other offices: 1) United States Senator Patty Murray’s office never returned phone calls. 2) United States Senator Maria Cantwell’s office said they were willing to take the boxes, but only by Cantwell, who wasn’t available, would be able to sign for them, and 3) Speaker of the Washington House of Representatives, Laurie Jinkins, posed a more perplexing problem for Mattes. “Tony Ivey from her office repeatedly told me that the speaker of the House of Representatives of Washington State actually does not care, does not feel responsible for, is not interested in hearing from or dealing with the people of Washington state, and that she only is interested in or concerned about the people in her district,” Mattes said to CJTV shortly after the deliveries.  “Shame on her. She should not be the speaker of the house then. She should just stay in her district, stay in her house in Tacoma, and deal with that. If the governor is willing to take these boxes, well, she isn’t higher than he is. We’ve got some ideas on what we’re going to do there, and we will get them served one way or the other.”

Mattes went on to tell CJTV, “All of these documents being delivered and signed for are going to be used in the courts as evidence. This is a paper trail to support our case.” 

Earlier in the CJTV interview, Mattes offered the following advice to Washington residents for defending their rights.


  1. Read the constitution, highlight your favorite parts, and get empowered by that.  
  2. Use the affidavits. They can be used for anything, such as being presented to school boards or ex-employers. Washington State Tea Room can help modify affidavits to meet a person’s needs. 
  3. Don’t get comfortable right now with the governor’s easing of restrictions, such as the lifting of the mask mandates, Washington residents should be ready not to comply to the governor’s future mandates.
  4. Get involved.
Two kinds of affidavits were delivered on March 24. 

The heading for the first kind of affidavit was, “Notice by Affidavit to End All Mask, Vaccine, and Social Distancing Mandates, Notice of Default, Notice of Dishonor.”

The notice makes the following claim:

You, named above, are in Violation of my rights as One of the People of these United States and of Washington State, as they are represented in the Constitution of Washington State and the Law of the Land, which is the Constitution of the United States, without constitutional right or authority. I have personal knowledge of, and asseverate the following:

This letter is formal notice that the parties named above are in DEFAULT of my Claim in the amount of $500,000.00 each, supported by my Notice of Affidavit to End All Mask, Vaccine, and Social Distancing Mandates. You, Parties, named above [public servants], and all parties of interest, by your willful default, have agreed to this claim.

Your failure to constitutionally rebut my Claim, supported by my Notice by Affidavits to End All Mask, Vaccine, and Social Distancing Mandates with your counter-affidavits evidence, that you, Parties named above [public servants] and all parties of interest, agree to the following, for which your silence now stands as consent to, tacit agreement of, and acquiescence, that the factual declarations stated in my Notice by Affidavit to End All Mask, Vaccine, and Social Distancing Mandates, are now established as settled matters of fact and law.

The heading for the second affidavit was, “Notice of Affidavit of Right to a Full Forensic Audit of 2020 Election, Notice of Default, Notice of Dishonor.” It was hoped that Notices of Default didn’t need to be served, but no adequate response was received from anyone; therefore, the notice of defaults were served.

More updates will be provided as other officials are finally served and as the Washington Tea Room demands accountability.
