Fred Walser and Gall
Fred Walser has been claiming that his court-ordered 240 hours of community service, which he has been fulfilling at the Sky Valley Food Bank, is "volunteer" work. He even had the gall to mention it in his biography under "community involvement."
No, Fred, you are not volunteering, you are fulfilling the obligations of your criminal sentence. Just so we're clear.
I mean, I am sure you enjoy the work, and people are glad to have you there, and it's good work. All of that I accept, and I am glad you're doing it. But framing it as volunteering is dishonest, which is unfortunately what we've come to expect from you and your campaign.

At least Fred Walser provided the Seattle Times with biographical information, unlike his opponent Val Stevens. Do you have any proof that Walser NEVER volunteered for the local food bank, before he received his criminal sentence?
Also, the Seattle Times form says: "Other WORK, community involvement". Let's suppose you don't consider Walser's time as the food bank to be "community involvement", since it isn't being provided on a charitable donation kind of basis. Walser is obviously at the food bank (since his sentence at least) out of self-interest, since he owes the court 240 hours of "community service". If "community service" somehow is not "community involvement", you have to count it as WORK, since Walser is obviously doing it for his own personal benefit.

Oh, get a life, Richard.

No. But I do know that what he has been doing with them for the past 20 or so weeks is for his criminal sentence, and that the Monitor article and Times bio were provided in the meantime. And if he had already been doing this work before his conviction, that's even worse, since he is not doing anything different from his previous activities to fulfill his sentence, which is obviously not the intent of the sentence.
And the rest of what you say is uninteresting: the fact is clear that he is trying to use the fulfillment of his sentence to make himself look more attractive to voters by disguising it as being done out of the goodness of his heart.
3. It all depends on the perspective, see the judge "volunteered" Walser to do the service.
Pope, why you insisting on shilling for a criminal democrat, when you, allegedly, are a lawyer... makes no sense.
Except, given your bizarre positions, I suppose it does.
anyone have any proof that Pope is actually a lawyer? 'spose you have to be to run for AG, but he sounds like a wannabe with lawyer-esque obfuscations.
Waiting for his autobiography. Trust that it'll read like that of a true child of the 60's.
Lets see now...who else has done public service? Gotti? OJ? Hoffa?
Seriously pudge, if Walser IS doing something that he did before (as unlikely as that is), then it's on the judge, not Walser.
Is this the same Richard Pope?
That would be him. The first time I met him, it was some 80 degrees, and everyone else was dressed for a BBQ. He was wearing a stiff shirt and tie. I could give you the names of over a dozen well known people that were there, and basically everyone ignored him. My daughter and I went to talk to him, largely because he looked rather sad and alone.
Not much has changed.
8. Richard Pope is a man without a home. He's run for office nearly every year for the past decade representing both the Republican Party and the Democrat Party. He's one of those rare politicians that unite the parties in that both despise him and want nothing more that to see him move out of state and become someone else's pain in the rear. He's did pass the bar once upon a time so he is technically a lawyer but he's been chastised by just about every judge he's ever argued before and had a restraining order or two filed against him as well. He really is a pretty sad individual. I think it probably has something to do with a mental imbalance which he has eluded to in past court filings and other public papers. My hope, and I do mean this sincerely, is that Pope gets the help he needs because he is obviously a very sick man.
9. Thanks for helping to point this out, Chris!
Richard P. Can you prove that you STILL not beating your wife.
When part of your sentence is to give time at a food bank. It's NOT voluteering!
I'm not even a lawyer and I know that part!
The point is: Walser must delude himself to make FIRST himself feel better and secondly to deceive others. No one does it better than Fred.
This is no different than his spin to the public regarding his cover-up of Detective Clinko's report regarding the illegal activity of his administrative assistant....."a clerical error". Who is he trying to fool?
Lack of accountability, deceptive,.....delusional.
