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, mo…

One of the reasons why the Party of Commons supports Washington's controversial "Top 2" primary system, is because we believe it represents the best chance for minor party or non-establishment candidates to actually win and take office. We won't go over the details of "Top 2" in this essay, that's been covered before. The point is that "Commons" is trying to get a plurality or majority of the votes, not just going through the exercise of making political points for the sake of it. There are issues that are fundamentally important to us, like banning drones and nukes (all nukes whether for armaments or energy) and pulling out of the latter day Pax Romana, and we are consistently trying to get the people behind us. Many will call it "Pollyanna," but this is about humanity and the survival of the species more than anything.

We often wonder how people can actually talk about some sort of sweeping revolution, when they can't even k…

"Outstanding" Logic

Regarding their dubious ratings, the so-called municipal league missed the opportunity to go for a 180 degree difference, in their minds, between Ms. Huff and Mark Greene by only giving Huff the next to the best rating. That probably would have made their preordained rating scheme a little too obvious. In the unlikely event that some enterprising mainstream news journalist will get close to their shenanigans, better for them to be able to say, "See, Huff didn't even get the best rating." To understand this scandal better, read our previous essay, "Scandalous Associates: Municipal League & Some of their Buddies."
