Remember when Ed Murray called Mike McGinn "divisive" and promised to bring civility back to City Hall? How's that working out, Ed?

@17: The Democrats had the Senate, House and Governor's mansion from 2005 to 2012. For Frank Chopp to say, "Don't blame me, blame the Senate Republicans" for not getting more progressive legislation passed during that time is convenient now, but is also a load of bullshit.

Why was Meinert blocking the doorway?

Curious: If BJC, PC, and CM had sat in on the meeting, would that have been enough weight to flop the endorsement Spear's way?

Or do the Powers That Be (Savage? Keck?) have veto authority, a la Frank Blethen and the Seattle Times' infamous 2000 endorsement of George W Bush?

@28: Could you please explain to me why the 5th doesn't extend to 85th and Greenwood?

@7: Mike McGinn would've been a fine candidate in District 5, but you see that crazy little zig-zag around Greenwood and 85th? That's where McGinn lives, putting him in the 6th with O'Brien and Licata.

There is no logical reason why the 5th shouldn't extend all the way west to Greenwood and south to 85th, unless the people who crafted this map wanted to give a big "Fuck You" to McGinn.

@1: Exactly. Jean Godden is terrible. Terrible like Laurelhurst. District elections suck. Thanks SECB, you stupid, stupid stoners.
