News Did Jane Hague Dupe the County for 7 Years?

The Seattle Times busts Republican King County Council Member Jane Hague today.
Hague, who it turns out never had a bachelor’s degree, says she’s never misled anyone about that. Whoooops. The Seattle Times found that she misled the municipal league on her 1993 candidate questionnaire when she was first running for her spot on the Council. Goldy’s on the story too.
But there’s something else people should start looking into to see if Hague has been truthful on this matter.
Hague was the manager of KC Elections from 1986-1993 (right before she got elected to the Council and when she filled out the Municipal League questionnaire.)
I don’t know what the requirement for that job was in 1986, but today, you’ve got to have a bachelor’s degree.
I just looked at the “minimum qualifications” on the current posting for the job and it says: “He/She must possess a Bachelor’s degree in Public Administration or in a related field, and a history of continuing education…”
Perhaps Hague didn’t correct the record in 93 because she didn’t want KC Elections to know the truth.
Her bio started changing in recent years (since being on Council where there’s no requirement about a college degree) to simply say she attended a four-year institution of higher learning.
