[UPDATE: Just got a call from Larry Phillips office saying they "have no idea" how Phillips got added to that group. Phillips, of course, serves on the Sound Transit Board with Reardon, and I guess that would've been rather impolitic of him.

Turns out, I only go to Facebook to confirm friend requests, so I had no idea you could add people to groups without their permission, because hell... it would make no fucking sense for Facebook to work that way. But Paul assures me that it does, and since he's young and hip and everything (well, younger and hipper than me) I'm taking his word for it. So, um, my bad.]

Scandal-plagued Snohomish County Executive Aaron Reardon dodged one bullet recently when a recall petition was rejected on a technicality (the filer doesn't live in Snohomish County), but the recall movement is picking up steam... and picking up the support of some prominent Democrats.

A Recall Snohomish County Executive Aaron Reardon Facebook group was recently started, and among its early members are King County Council member Larry Phillips*, 1st CD candidate Suzan DelBene, and state Representative Hans Dunshee (D-44).

When members of your own party start calling for your recall, it may be time to look for another job... preferably one that doesn't give you the opportunity to carry on a longterm affair on the taxpayer's dime.

Oh, and by the way, if a Reardon recall petition is accepted, it wouldn't be the first time:
