More Controversial Emails Intended for Dow Constantine

Yes, yes ... it's been big news. On Monday Josh Feit heated up the new Crosscut/PubliCola marriage by divulging the first paragraph of an attention-grabbing email sent by local communications consultant Kim Fuqua and intended for King County Executive Dow Constantine - an email that accidentally went out to "dozens of acquaintances" according to the post, and an email that accidentally made public a "romantic affair" between Constantine and Fuqua.

Oopsy daisy.

Of course, Constantine isn't married, but he has had a long-time relationship with Shirley Carlson, meaning the King County Exec now finds himself in a fairly sticky and now public situation. For her part, Fuqua is in the midst of a divorce from former U.S. Congressional candidate Alex Alben.

As Feit's post notes, "Fuqua's emotional email implies Constantine was breaking off a romantic relationship with Fuqua."

Oopsy daisy.

The now-infamous first paragraph of Fuqua's email, as presented by Crosscut:

"I haven't written you an email before, but I figure now is the time. I need more than 160 characters to say what I want to say, and making time for a phone call seems to be too difficult for some reason."

Given the fact Constantine isn't married and hasn't brought his relationship with Carlson into the realm of campaigning or politicking, the newsworthiness of the email is debatable. But there's no denying it's hella scandalous.

What's perhaps more scandalous, however, is a series of emails recently discovered by Seattle Weekly intended for Dow Constantine but instead accidentally sent to South Park's Don Constantine, a forklift operator by trade who is now seriously considering changing the Gmail address. The misdirected emails appear to have been sent by various notable Seattle government officials and power players.

After much consideration, we've decided to publish the first paragraph of each of the emails below.

"I haven't written you before in email, but I figure now is the time. I fucking hate you. HATE YOU! Also, when no one is looking, sometimes I barbecue puppies. They're delicious. I'm the she-devil."

Says Don Constantine of the mistaken emails he receives on a regular basis: "Honestly, this is getting ridiculous. It also makes me glad I'm not Dow Constantine."
