It’s Day Five of “Where’s My Money, Greg?” Crisis

Posted by on September 20 at 15:24 PM

It’s day five of captivity for the $300 I gave Greg Nickels. I’ve asked for the money back because it was obtained under false pretenses. I donated it to Greg’s re-election campaign because he supported the monorail project.

C’mon, Greg. When your boy Casey Corr morphed overnight into an anti-monorail hack, Natasha Jones, spokesperson for the Seattle Monorail Project, demanded that Corr return the $100 she had contributed to his campaign. Corr returned the money immediately.

I would like to think that the Nickels campaign is as efficient and ethical as the Corr campaign—or at least has a similar capacity for shame. It’s basically the same staff at both campaigns, so what’s taking so long?
