Rumors about Red Hen restaurant: Rat infestation, sex-offender silent partner, pedophile owner?

On the night of June 23, Stephanie Wilkinson, co-owner of The Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, VA, kicked out White House press secretary Sarah Sanders and her in-laws  simply because Sanders works for President Trump. The rabid Wilkinson even pursued and harassed the in-laws when they went to a restaurant across the street.

Outraged by Wilkinson’s behavior, AltMedia netizens went to work to dig up information. Four especially sensational claims are made:

  1. That Red Hen restaurant recently was cited by the health department for a number of violations, including a rat infestation.
  2. That the restaurant’s silent partner is a registered sex offender.
  3. That Stephanie Wilkinson is a pedophile.
  4. That Stephanie Wilkinson has HIV.

I spent hours yesterday to verify those claims. This is what I found.

(1) Health Inspection of Red Hen Restaurant

To begin, I received an email with an unsourced image of a purported Health Department Report on a recent inspection of The Red Hen on April 8, 2018, listing the following health hazards:

  • Poor food and unit temperatures
  • No chef’s thermometer for monitoring food temperatures
  • Ignorance in food safety issues, e.g., poultry’s final cook temperature should be 165°F
  • below-standard dish washing machine
  • Rat infestation! — which prompted the Health Department to recommend that The Red Hen be closed for 48 hours (presumably to exterminate the rats).

I cannot confirm the above Health Department Report.

The city of Lexington is in Rockbridge County in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.

According to Central Shenandoah Health District’s website, there have been four inspections of The Red Hen, the most recent of which was on February 6, 2018, which found no risk factors:

The health inspection conducted on Feb. 6, 2018 found:

  • Good food/unit temperatures
  • Staff had clean uniforms/aprons and line cook had hair restrained
  • Mechanical dish-washing machine was sanitizing.

The health inspection on January 24, 2017 cited The Red Hen for one violation, which was immediately corrected:

  • pickles/jams in a hermetically sealed container is not from an approved food processing plant.

The most critical health inspection report of The Red Hen was four years ago, on April 8, 2014, which found these violations:

  1. Raw beef stored above cooked RTE food and in another unit raw thawing meats were stored above the cookie bars. This was corrected by Red Hen staff at the time of the inspection.
  2. The prepared ready-to-eat (RTE) food- (grits) in the refrigeration unit is not properly dated for disposition.

None of the four inspections of The Red Hen found a rat infestation.

(2) Red Hen’s Silent Partner

To begin, Stephanie Wilkinson also owns House Mountain Yarn Company and is identified on its website as having “co-founded” The Red Hen restaurant, which implies she’s a co-owner.

A comment made by someone named “Kevin Gardner” has been disseminated in the AltMedia in tweets and a YouTube video, but to my knowledge, no one has been able to determine who “Kevin Gardner” is, whether he indeed had worked at The Red Hen, or the truth of his incendiary claim that Red Hen has a silent partner named Allen Frazier, who is a registered sex offender. Below is a screenshot of Gardner’s comment:

According to the Virginia State Police’s Sex Offender Search Registry, there indeed is a sex offender named Barney Allen Frazier, Sr., 67, of 24 Whimbrel Lane, Lexington, VA 24450, who was convicted on June 13, 2007, for “indecent liberties with [minor] child by custodian”. Frazier was registered as a sex offender on Oct. 11, 2007, and renewed the registration on May 3, 2018.

Here’s a screenshot from the Registry‘s webpage on Frazier:

While there indeed is a registered sex offender living in Lexington who is named (Barney) Allen Frazier, does this mean he is a silent partner of The Red Hen restaurant?

According to TruthFinder, Barney Allen Frazier, 67 (will be 68 on June 30), was arrested and charged with having committed a felony of “indecent liberties with a child” in 2006, for which he pled guilty on October 25, 2006, and had his sentence of 4 years 230 days suspended in favor of probation and supervision upon release.

Frazier owns his 3-bedroom 1-bath 988 sq. ft. home in Lexington, which has an assessed value of only $115,400. Frazier’s modest assets make it unlikely that he’s a silent partner of The Red Hen or of any other business.

(3) Stephanie Wilkinson is a pedophile?

There are other claims made about Stephanie Wilkinson, one of which is that she may be a pedophile, judging by an image of her in a necklace with a spiral pendant (source: @EmptyNesterinVA):

If you recall, the FBI has identified the spiral as a pedophile symbol:

Adding to Wilkinson’s spiral-pendant necklace is a pic of Tina Miller, a colleague or staff at House Mountain Yarn Co., wearing a necklace with what appears to be a spiral-triangle pendant:

(4) Stephanie Wilkinson has HIV?

Then there’s an entry on June 23, 2018 on the STDRegistry website that Stephanie Wilkinson has HIV:

Stephanie Wilkinson of Lexington, VA contracted HIV after being a heroin addict back in 2010 – 2014. It is well-known that she became infected with HIV after sharing dirty needles with drug addicts in Lexington. She is currently the owner of The Red Hen Restaurant in Lexington, which has been under constant investigation by the DEA and Virginia State Police for being a distribution point for heroin and oxycodone. Stephanie Wilkinson has also been under investigation for engaging in human trafficking, apparently bringing teenage girls from Honduras and Belize into the US and then forcing them into involuntary prostitution.

Avoid her and her business “The Red Hen Restaurant” at all costs. She has single-handily corrupted Lexington and will continue to do so until the police have enough evidence to stop her for good.

To conclude, I found no confirmation that:

  1. The Red Hen restaurant had had a rat infestation.
  2. The restaurant has a silent partner named Allen Frazier.
  3. Red Hen owner Stephanie Wilkinson has HIV.

While Wilkinson did wear a necklace with a spiral pendant, it is a round spiral, instead of the triangular spiral identified by the FBI to be a pedophile symbol. The spiral also is a symbol for many cultures, with various meanings. See here.

The pendant necklace of Wilkinson’s friend, Tina Miller, is suggestive, but hardly conclusive evidence of pedophilia.

My takeaway from researching and writing this post is that the Internet is now a powerful and frightening weapon that is deployed against perceived enemies — a weapon wielded by too many for whom truth is devalued or just plain irrelevant.

The folly of Stephanie Wilkinson is that she readily gave vent to her hatred for a duly-elected sitting President by discriminating against and publicly humiliating Trump’s press secretary Sarah Sanders and her in-laws who, ironically, are Democrats. In so doing, Wilkinson painted a big target on her back for Trump supporters, some of whom traffic in ugly rumors that are unverified or unverifiable.

    As the old saying goes – “You reap what you sow”.

    While the claims against her may not be true, it is true that she created the wave of hatred against her, and in the age of the Internet, that is an unwise thing to do. Actions have consequences.

  6. Excellent piece and good research, as always. The sad truth is that I don’t trust anyone who could engage in such behavior. Her background and the picture that accompanied the original article gave me the creeps.

    Anyone who goes through life thinking that any and all things are political has “issues”. A person in their fifties should be growing in grace, not wallowing in hatred. That she would chase a customer from her business simply because they don’t agree with her and are affiliated with someone she doesn’t like is amazing to me.

    People like her are petty tyrants. Given the chance they would demand strict adherence to their worldview, or else. On the other hand, unsupported rumors do nothing to bolster credibility. I wouldn’t be surprised if it were true, but I don’t see any evidence to support it.

    It is obvious that some are trying to start a civil war, or failing that, a soft coup. I don’t believe that that is coincidental either. It is vital to respond to these accusations as Dr. E did above, with a cool head and letting reason be our guide.

    • lophatt . . . Excellent comments. I could not agree more. I especially agree with the statement . . . “People like her are petty tyrants.” I believe this to be true since she followed the party that she kicked out of her restaurant across the street, and gathered a group to harass them. It is one thing, although I personal do not agree, to ask someone to leave your premises–but to follow them across the street, makes her seem like a stalker. Evidently, she agrees with crazy Maxine–harass “them” any where you find them.

      Personally, I would not feel bad if the Red Hen Restaurant fails. Perhaps being unemployed might teach those employees who called their boss demanding that she do something about having “Conservatives” in the restaurant.

      It will be interesting to watch and see what happens to this business after such an ill advised tantrum.

      Dr Eowyn . . . Thank you for posting this informative article. You truly are the best. God Bless you.

      • Yes, thanks Lulu. I rather think that the meme “harass them anywhere you find them” comes from their controllers. Maxine never had an original thought in her life.

        It would be interesting to dig deeper and see if there is anything to these allegations. Nasty as they are, they don’t surprise me with this crowd.

        Just like that group that surrounds them in D.C., centered on Comet Ping Pong, the Podesta bros., and “art”, they work their connections. Their connections are hidden. When people do evil things they hide them in dark places.

        Isn’t it interesting that there is so much involvement with the restaurant business? There’s also a lot of involvement with children’s organizations as well. I don’t trust any of them. People that hold such perverse beliefs shouldn’t be around children.

While they could very well be true, there is nothing to substantiate them, just like all of the other insane stories that are out there about Trump and anyone the left disagrees with. The difference is they spout them as truth. The hate and vitriol these people harbor inside their bodies and minds is going to cause nothing but major health issues and unhappiness for them. they are just too blind to see.

      For me it isn’t easy to watch all this delusion. Intellectually I know that it happens, but to see it in reality is disturbing. I suppose there are only the free and the manipulated.

  14. Thanks for taking the time to research all this. (I was skeptical of #3, as well; the necklace being a round, not triangular. Have only seen the triangle spiral in reference to the pedophiles.) I hope people read all the way to the end, to your conclusion.

  17. Seems to me, she is out of her comfort zone. She sets up shop in an predominately Republican area, and being a radical liberal starts shooting herself in the foot. She surely didn’t think this through very well, that to succeed, you keep your mouth shut on politics, sex and religion.
    From what I read, she lost her job with the city and will most likely be ignored from the majority of the residents now.
    She should add to her list not to harass and stalk innocent people.

    • The information that was provided last night indicates that the city is predominantly leftist, although the county leans right. I don’t know that the “job with the city” wasn’t a volunteer position, something akin to the Chamber of Commerce.

      She is apparently completely unrepentant. She feels completely justified in her actions. These are provocations that are being manipulated into being.

      In the “Daily Mail” today was an article on the shooting in Annapolis. In there they tried to claim that the shooter was provoked by something Milo (the gay conservative) said recently about shooting journalists.

      These various elements are not aligning themselves accidentally. My opinion is that they will not allow Trump to continue if they can find a way to make that happen and they don’t care about the consequences. The idea that people willingly go along with this is mind-numbing.

  19. I had not heard/seen those rumors yet but glad to learn they are all unsubstantiated and, therefore, not worth repeating. Great job!

    True, sensationalist headlines &/or tweets are passed around on the internet often enough. I’ve noticed over the years that simply reading the links provided with some headlines will show that the content does not even say/prove what the headline said!

    ======
    I wondered if Red Hen was incorporated & who, if any, all the Officers might be; & if any original Articles of Incorporation might show who originally created the business, etc.

    Unfortunately, the State of Virginia (compared to Florida) has very LOUSY (skimpy) ONLINE corporate records info:
    https://sccefile.scc.virginia.gov/Find/Business

    For “Red Hen, LLC,” Virginia only provides the following few facts:
    https://sccefile.scc.virginia.gov/Business/S254257

    “Principal Office” address:
    620 STONEWALL ST.
    LEXINGTON VA 24450

    LEXINGTON VA 24450
    LEXINGTON CITY (FILED IN ROCKBRIDGE COUNTY) 310
    Status: Active.
    Effective Date: 2/3/2016.

    There’s no Officers of the LLC shown (President, VP, Treasurer, Secretary, etc. & their addresses) & no original Articles of Incorporation & no Annual Filings documents, etc. Bummer!

    As shown above, Virginia only shows the “Registered Agent” (person or entity responsible for accepting any lawsuits filed against Red Hen) & that only as of 2/3/2016 has that person been Stephanie Wilkinson.
    –So who was the Registered Agent from 3/31/2008 through 2/3/2016?
    –If Virginia showed all Annual Filings since 3/31/2008, we would be able to find out.
