Martha Grist Illicit Motel Advertised on AirBNB

Breaking the law is nothing new to amoral old thief, Mad Martha, but here is the latest:–NC-Aurora-Drive?page=1&source=header&airbnb_plus_only=false&allow_override%5B%5D=&s_tag=8pvf9MtF

The top right photo* is a view of her basement apartment she’s using as an illegal motel.  New suckers just came in from Connecticut in a red Mazda with CHETC on the license tag, and of course there will be more comments and photos about this latest rash of dishonesty by the old beldam here at the blawg.

*Not any more.  She’s had it moved as of today, 10/24.  So go to the $67 (Kenilworth) on the map to the right and click on it and it will show you Mad Martha’s basement nest ad– 9 photos including stove, fridge, and toilet that’s always malfunctioning because it is 10′ below the level of the sewer line.

Luckily for Mad Martha Grist a drought has occupied Asheville all summer and continues to prevail.  Otherwise, some of her AirBNB customers would have been flooded.   There was a flood back in the early summer and a wet mattress lay out in her yard for a week until she illegally dumped it onto the ground by the dumpsters at Star Lanes Bowling Center.  You can see it below.  This woman is endowed with the ethics of a cockroach.

Back in May, her particular swarm of scruffy, tattoo-covered millenials renting by the night were in and out and in and out and in and out in hoopties constantly with new faces and tattoos showing up every day, especially when Mad Martha was gone.  When the cat’s away the mice play, and it looked as though as many as 8 of those mutts crashed there at all hours of the night…until she ran them off.  And they just happened to be such poor drivers one of them backed into our mailbox and knocked it halfway over.  We had to hire a man to dig it up and reset it so that it was plumb again.

Now go over to the map and click on the $67 figure (over “Kenilworth Rd.”) for a display of her violations, including 9 photos.  Check out the photo of her jerry-built steep walkway between her messy place and the nice home of the Chalnicks just to the south of her.  Somewhere along this steep unlit incline her former tenant, Kerry Evans, fell in the night and broke her arm a couple of years ago.   But Kerry moved on to a habitable apartment.  There is no love lost between Kerry Evans and Mad Martha.  You can be sure that Kerry was stiffed for her medical bills.

Notice also that Martha Grist slickly evades using her last name since to call herself “Martha Grist” on her AirBNB advertisement would open her up to an internet search that would be quite revealing.  Incriminating even.  Perish the thought in her rotten little mind that she’d be exposed as an open and notorious perjurer and vexatious litigant in court filings and false testimony in courts of law.

And finally, several weeks ago I phoned Shannon Morgan in the city’s zoning department, who is charged with enforcing the zoning laws against the sleazy people who open motels in family residence neighborhoods.  Fine is $500 per day.  This is a piddling fine when you consider that AirBNB violations in New York City draw $7500 fines and will be enforced, while corrupt mopes in our city building look the other way.

Monday, 10 October 2016, Morgan called me to whine that he had searched and searched and could not find Martha Grist’s advertising.  Then he said, “We can’t enforce against her unless we find her online ads.”  He was trying to head me off.  And  I don’t believe a word he says.  The city is infested with Scottie Shuford types.  All that was necessary was to google “Asheville AirBNB” and then stick “Aurora Drive” into AirBNB’s search window.  And VOILA!  Do this for your street and see how many illegal motels pop up.

There are a few legal B&B’s and homestays.  I saw an AirBNB homestay ad for Kenilworth where the homeowner courteously posted a copy of the homestay license for the premises.

Over ten years ago all I needed to do to prove a cathouse was rocking on Aurora Drive when skanky Scottie Shuford was still griming Asheville was to google “198 Aurora Drive, Asheville,” and it popped right up, fancy outdoor spa and all.  That’s after sleazy liar Scottie Shuford swore to me over and over again that he and his staff had searched for the ad and could find none.  That little sonofabitch threatened me with Asheville police.   Before city council threw Shuford out of his office, they should have taken him down to Pack Square and administered a public flogging.

Here is  a photo of the filthy mattress Mad Martha dumped on Star Lanes Bowling Center:


Martha Grist Illegal Motel Booming at 200 Aurora Drive, Asheville


Marty Tackitt-Grist, also known as Martha Grist, has not worried one of her limited brain cells over the $500 per day fine for operating an illegal motel in violation of Asheville’s laws.  “What the heck!” she figures.  She’s been a common criminal for years and never been prosecuted yet — felony perjury, tax evasion, mail fraud, civil conspiracy, conspiracy to practice law without a license, larceny, illegal dumping, criminal violations of Asheville’s Building Code, numerous frivolous 911 call crimes, cruelty to animals, criminal assault, and now criminally operating an illegal motel in plain sight in a residential neighborhood zoned for families, not commercial use like motels.

So this is the weekend beginning Friday, October 7, 2016,  and yesterday about 5 p. m., travelers drove in, got out of their car (a gray-haired man with a pony tail and a woman) and carried their “motel” luggage around the side of Mad Martha’s house and settled into her illicit basement “motel” unit.  This morning I made photos of their car, a grey Kia, NC license tag no. AFK-1957 and a Chris Leith Kia ad on the tag cover and trunk lid.  Chris Leith Kia is located in Raleigh, NC.

I noticed this past Monday, October 3, 2016, that someone with the city cruised by a couple of times after the report of last weekend’s motel guests.  I can assure you that Shannon Morgan who is salaried for and paid by the taxpayers to investigate this crime and prosecute it has been provided with a full report about this and other illegal motels on Aurora Drive.

More to come, including photos of motel guests and a mattress that lay in Mad Martha’s yard for weeks until she illegally dumped it beside a dumpster at Star Lanes Bowling Center, a block down the street.

Martha Grist Illegal Motel Busy This Weekend at 200 Aurora Drive

marty motel guests 9302016



Here is a photo [better version coming soon] of the car which drove into her illegal ‘motel’ yesterday afternoon while Mad Martha was gone all night and did not return until this morning.  Here also find a thumbnail report– with more photos to come — on the feverishly busy illegal motel of Mad Martha Grist, 200 Aurora Drive, Asheville, NC.

This weekend’s guests:  two women from Virginia attending Asheville’s Gay Pride Weekend in a new white Volkswagen Passat, Virginia license tag no. VFN-2927…..
Photographed yesterday and today.  More here.  Two women motel customers arrived and unloaded when no one was at home at the Grist home.  They went around the side of the ‘motel’ with their obvious temporary stay gear and entered from the rear, i. e., at Mad Martha’s illegal basement apartment which she built without a building permit, a crime btw, and for which she must have a “grant of immunity” from obeying the city ordinances, thanks to some of the numerous crooks in the city building, such as Gary “Fort Worth” Jackson, Cecil “drunk again” Bothwell, and Esther “smirking in muh million-dollar house at 169 Brookwood Rd. in tony North Asheville where illegal motels not allowed” Manheimer.

And no, these ‘motel’ customers are not friends of the proprietress spending a few nights for free (as Marty will surely try to squall, she being the prodigious serial liar and courtroom perjurer that she is).  They are paying customers in a criminally illegal racket perpetrated by Mad Martha Grist in violation of settled law, maximum fine $500 per day. :


Carl Flamm Scam

What really ticked me off about this guy was that he “doxxed” Cindie Harman by publishing all her personal information online — her address, phone number, email address — in an effort to cause people to contact her at home and pester her. And she had been pestered enough because of her feisty blog, A crooked judge, Thomas G. Foster, had even signed a no-contact restraining order against her in _Ramsey vs. Harman,_ later reversed in the NC Court of Appeals because the appellate court found Cindie had not stalked anyone.

Cindie had other legal troubles too, all of it attributable to the anger focused on her crusading weblog which trained klieg lights on Madison County’s dirty politicians.

I knew something was going on recently because Carl was obsessed about getting the doxxing info out of alt.appalachian. He had canceled his shabby doxxing message, but when I clicked on it to reply and gave him a good tongue-lashing, it was published all over again. So Carl wrote in and begged for me to remove it. So I did. But an archivist called NARKIVE didn’t… and here most of it is:

“cindie harman is a backwater idiot who needs to be on psych drugs. her power of spreading evil an maliciousness are right up there with charlie manson and hitler.
this is one person who needs to be “retired” early. she should have been “retired” long ago. she lives at [redacted] hot springs, nc if anyone would like to pay her a visit and show her how human beings are meant to act.  her phone number is [redacted].”

The only thing about Carl is he himself has a bad reputation and is otherwise a royal jerk. Like for assault by pointing a gun, running around butt naked in the vicinity of the Harman home, and other behavioral aberrations which he confesses to in his writings advertised on Amazon.  He also confesses he suffers from bipolar and other disorder.

Then I found this Madison County Superior Court calendar featuring the asshole judge, Alan Thornburg (a crook like his daddy, Lacy Thornburg).

So it looks like 3 couples, the Flamms, the Laclairs, and the Jenkses ganged up on Cindie and her husband with a lawsuit; but after I got a copy of the judgment in the case, I see it was settled so that it appears the Harmans bought out the plaintiffs and sent them packing. Well, good. And here it is. I have no idea what the lawsuit was about but the judgment appears to favor the Harmans:


One afterthought here:  The person who obtained this court order asked me not to publish it.  I told him I wouldn’t.   But after I got to looking it over and seeing what kind of little warnings lurked in it against publication,  I decided it SHOULD by all means be published.

Have a nice day, and Alan Thornburg, you can kiss me arse.



Martha Elizabeth Tackitt-Grist aka Marty Grist, Genetically Modified Incarnation of Evil

Read these 3 pages over below very carefully and you’ll see that this woman has gotten “help” to devise her wacky “answer.”  And I do mean WACKY. Somebody is stupid and has otherwise committed a serious crime by practicing law without a license.  Even though her helper is stupid, the helper is smarter than Mad Martha because there is no way she would have thought up such a caper.  I suspect the help was from someone who is not playing with a full deck but who has a background as a legal secretary or deputy clerk.  But in this case, as is usual with a “lay lawyer,” a little learning is a dangerous thing.

In addition there are three ridiculously irrelevant pages attached to Grist’s answer but not yet posted.  I’ll publish those soon.  These pages have already been scanned onto my hard drive.  If you happen to be a lawyer with a sense of humor, you can see something hilarious — the absurd claim that contributory negligence is available as an affirmative defense in a libel lawsuit.  Of course, the entire Answer is an exercise in mental disorders.

Note that this creeping pile of filth, Marty Grist, taught school in North Carolina for many years.  Can you imagine someone with the ethics of a cockroach passing them on to little impressionable children?

Willard Hartsock Wifebeater

This feature is to show you WNC’s most unprosecuted criminal:

zoroWhoops!  Wrong criminal.  Here he is:


And here he is in the McDowell Hospital the night he got fitted with a colostomy bag and was getting a dilaudid drip for falling down a shaft drunk.  This is one of the nights the crazy little pointy-headed bastard sent scads of taxicabs to my door in Asheville:


More to come.  A book could be written about this nasty little scoundrel.


See what people mean who know this skank and call him a runt?  Check out those delicate little effeminate hands and the sissy pose and the open shirt showing the fuzz on his little bird chest.  Is this not a freak?

And here is a copy of one of the many warrants served on the nasty sonofabitch.  Sheriff’s deputies picked him up on Chimney Rock after he tried to give them the slip and when they cuffed him he cried like a baby:
