Oh my God:

Down in the comments thread, a SLOG reader called N in Seattle is talking about BRIBE (Bringing Real Integrity Back to Elections)—the PAC that the Stranger set up back in early 2004 to protest Mayor Nickels’s tacky overtures to the crop of incoming city council members. He held fund raisers for them.

N, thank you for the memories. That was my favorite thing that ever happened, and I’d forgotten all about it.

If I remember right, we actually raised enough money at our fundraiser to buy 1 bus ad. And we got it on a line that goes right by city hall.

Here’s a mock up of the ad that ran. To my evident oblivion it’s posted right here in the Stranger news room. bribe.JPG

Oh, I thought you meant the Stan Lippman ad I saw on a bus yesterday.

Interesting idea, though!

Ah, the good ol' days. Before The Stranger spiraled into hypocritical, self-important irrelevance.

Happy to be of service, Josh.

It was great to have BRIBE around to help me slap that troll Taylor Ashlyn upside the head.
