Re the Port item, something is garbled here. Port Commissioners can't fire anybody except (by majority vote) the Port CEO.

And as the article states, "Creighton isn’t a defendant in the lawsuit".

Charles has adopted Trump's definition of "fake news".

News -- whether factual and representative, or deceptively distorted, or outright false -- is "fake" if propagated by allies of an opposing camp ... and also "fake" if one disagrees with its placement or prominence, even though it's published by ethical mainstream media and is not in factual dispute.

FWIW, WA-8 voted D in every presidential contest from 1992-2016. Its PVI is tossup - no partisan lean either way. It's a shade whiter than Jayapal's WA-7, with a roughly equal median age.

"None of us asked for this living nightmare"?

Sorry, OA, but one of us threw every ounce of his being into defeating Trump's opponent and promoted crank theories about what an unimaginable horror she'd be as POTUS.

Whoever that was, he was totally begging for this living nightmare.

Can't we get Molly Moon into this race?

What do we want? Salted lavender-pomegranite ice cream! How we gonna pay for it? Voter-approved excess levies!

@2 -- a.k.a. "Louisiana primary".

Potentially subject to strategic manipulation, as a major party may eliminate the opposing party from the runoff by successfully injecting multiple candidates bearing the opposing party label into the primary stage, thus fragmenting their vote. Also tends to favor centrist candidates of either party.

@4 -- There may be a flaw in that proof. I keep running into people who voted for Sawant in 2013 with the intent of lighting a fire under Conlin, not electing Sawant.
Apr 9 RonK, Seattle commented on Is the Case Against Ed Murray Politically Motivated? Here’s What the Lawyer for His Accuser Says.
@51, @54 -- So long as it could be reasonably argued the earlier accusations were politically motivated, legal expenditures from Murray's surplus funds account are not a problem.
