Port Recall Update

posted by on May 24 at 16:40 PM

KC Superior Court Judge Charles Mertel finalized the language on the Pat Davis recall petition today.

The word “knowingly” stayed in over protests from Davis’s lawyer, who noted defensively that the blogs were making too much of a big deal over the word. Judge Mertel wasn’t moved—reportedly saying he doesn’t read the blogs.

The only real change to the language I posted this morning is that points 1 and 2 (which together redundantly focused on Davis’s act of signing Mic Dinsmore’s handsome retirement package) were collapsed into one point.

So, how much was Pat trying to rip off from us taxpayers, anyway?

the statute makes something of it: the member must have "knowledge of the fact that the meeting is in violation [of the OPMA]." RCW 42.30.120. i imagine defense didn't want it in so they could challenge the technical defect later on. no dice.

@1: let's see, the earlier post says $239,000, so you might start there.

@1 - yeah, but how much had to be borrowed if that was paid? Wouldn't it end up being more than $250,000 when all is said and done?

I could use that money to pay off my mortgage completely ...
