This morning, Goldy at HorsesAss posted a long, coherent and cogent analysis of all the mudslinging currently going on in the race for King County Executive. The King County Democrats I’ve been thinking about it for most of the past couple hours, knowing that I wanted to highlight it, say “go read it” and the like, but also wondering if his post didn’t remind me of a recent conversation. Now I remember said recent conversation. But before we get to that, here’s a nutshell version of what his post was all about. http://horsesass.org/?p=21133#commentsCampaign disclosure requirements are laced with intricately complicated booby traps, leaving ample opportunity for candidates to trip them. And they do trip them. Often. To date, Democrat Dow Constantine has had one such misstep: The hiring of a treasurer who also worked for a group sending Anti-Hutchison mailers.
