Seattle Times Editorial Board Makes Stuff Up Again
As expected, the Seattle Times editorial board, which has spent the last 4 years "emphatically" arguing against letting King County voters elect our own Elections Director, has endorsed Sherril Huff, the only candidate in the race who also "unequivocally" objects to letting the voters make this choice.
Lame endorsement aside, the Times editorialists are also making stuff up (again), referring to Huff's too-late-to-lawfully-file-her-candidacy relocation to King County:
Our election laws allow her to make the move she did
That's a silly formulation. She can move whenever she wants, it's just that state and county law
permit her to to file for the office only while
she resides here, not beforehand
. But okay, if the Times editorialists can cite specific statute and case law to support their implication that Huff met the legal standard of county residency at the time she filed her candidacy declaration, I'll retract this post.

As a lefty I can't wait for pretty much all the papers in Seattle to fold.
The only real news is in the blogosphere anymore.
When the Seattle Sinner is the only thing worth reading to me, and The Weekly occasionally reports real news, it is a very sad day.

I am somewhat surprised to see you whining about the Seattle Times Editorial Board making stuff up.
As a supporter of the administrations of Pat Herbold / Michael Young / Lori Sotelo / Luke Esser / Ross Marzolf and the fascist wing of the King County and Washington State Republican Party, you not only know they and their ilk 'make stuff up' to defame Conservative Republicans but you have accommodated such members of the King County Republican party as Mark Griswold and Kristy Brown by allowing them to use your website to libel Conservative Republicans with false statements and fabricated assertions.
What is that quote from Shakespear?
"The lady doth protest too much, methinks." - William Shakespeare (Hamlet) This quote comes from Hamlet, Act 3, scene 2.

" Brian, you sir are no Republican. "
As if you would know what makes a person a 'Republican', know even less who is a Republican.
