Dino Rossi’s (the Washington Republican candidate for governor) attack dog the B.I.A.W. suffered a setback at the hands of the Washington’s Public Disclosure Commission. According to reports B.I.A.W.’s cash machine, BIAW Member Services, illegally funneled $500,000 into attacks on Gregoire.
The P.I.’s report has the growling, barking, sputtering, red-faced, dissembling response of the BIAW spokesman. Read the response carefully. There is absolutely no intelligible explanation for the event in question, just knee jerk conspiracy rantings and ravings. These guys are dangerous in that rationality is just not in their frame of reference.
The most interesting step comes next: the matter is referred to Rob McKenna, the Attorney General, and beneficiary of this groups slobbering assaults on decency. Mr. McKenna is to decide whether the State will proceed against the BIAW subsidiary. Talk about being asked to bite the paw that feeds you.
