A Scandal Revisited

This is a follow-up to a post we made on August 19, 2011: "Scandalous Associates: Municipal League & Some of their Buddies," which has begun the uncovering of the fact that there is a cozy relationship between the so-called municipal league (King County), the so-called elections oversight committee (King County), and the elections department (King County). Now, we have learned that at least one person works for two of the three entities. The coziness of these three entities forms a de facto coalition. Therefore, the municipal league should have recused themselves from rating the director of elections candidates since there are obvious conflicts of interest. If the elections oversight committee has made any criticisms of the elections department since their existence, which is very doubtful, the media doesn't report it.

By the way, why aren't the General Election candidates' voters' guide profiles posted on the elections department's website by now, more than a week after the primary, which is important to Mark Greene given that the Seattle area media's disinterest in the Director of Elections election borders on a thinly disguised effort to ensure the incumbent's victory by not mentioning the opposition whatsoever? Even the press/media in some nominal democracies of other parts of the world are not so crass in their bias. Apparently, the Sims-Logan-Huff machine at Elections is taking their cue from their friends in the media in withholding information about the opposition to their administration, which just goes to show the difficulty, if not laughableness, in being in an election against the people that run the elections. Maybe, the elections oversight committee can get the elections department to not wait until the last minute to post these general election profiles (hee hee hee).

Box 612, Bellevue, WA 98009. Also, Mark is depending on supporters to spread the word about the campaign to get around the media bias regarding non-establishment campaigns. Thank you!
