The Seattle Times reports that political opponents of Gov. Christine Gregoire are criticizing her statewide “Citizen Engagement Tour” as illegal state-funded electioneering.
Like Josh, I attended this event at Town Hall a couple weeks ago, and I gotta say… between the cheesy staging (a huge banner reading “Building a Better Future for Washington’s Families”; bleachers filled with random people whose presence was never explained) and the bizarre scriptedness (cute kids asking obviously planted questions; a goofy moderator who forced everyone to ask their questions by first stating their “vision of success”), Dino Rossi’s campaign ought to be encouraging her.
