Operation: Who’s Escheating Who?

Posted September 28th, 2007 by Joe Kaiser

Dear Rob,

Operation: Who’s Escheating Who is in full swing and things are beginning to roll.

We’ve got responses from only about half the counties, though, and you’d better believe I’m tracking the non-responses as well as the responses, expecting them to play by the rules.

I’m sure your office doesn’t need another Prison Legal News fiasco on its hands any time soon.


Lest they forget . . .

The people of this state do not yield their sovereignty to the agencies that serve them. The people, in delegating authority, do not give their public servants the right to decide what is good for the people to know and what is not good for them to know. The people insist on remaining informed so that they may maintain control over the instruments that they have created. — Preamble to the Washington State
Public Records Act

Posting results

By end of business today we will be completely caught up, having a current tracking spreadsheet and all formal requests made in writing and sent via email and certified mail to all counties.

I’ll be posting results on a county-by-county basis, so we can learn if there really is anything here, or not. Former AAG Cheryl Kringle commented to my attorney early on, expressing her opinion that so few overage claims actually escheat it isn’t a factor in this investigation.


Though not a conspiracy theorist by nature, I figure I’ll know one when I see one (or when it hits me over the head with a bogus Consumer Protection Act violation lawsuit).

In the arena,

Joe Kaiser

    Since you’ve recently turned up the heat on Big Mac (ahem, Mc.),
    I can’t help but wonder if his office is keeping up with their reading…

    How is their virtual attendance been lately?

    Being a person who doesn’t swear that much… I have little to say about the WA morons and their nazi actions.

    Politicians looking to further their careers should be required to perform to a higher level of evidence in their actions.

    These politicksians disgust me.

    …here’s a story and it’s just a story, so you PC divas keep your shirts on.

    An Indian walks into a cafe with a shotgun in one hand pulling a male buffalo with the other. He says to the waiter: “Want coffee.”

    The waiter says, “Sure, Chief. Coming right up.”

    He gets the Indian a tall mug of coffee. The Indian drinks the coffee down in one gulp, turns and blasts the buffalo with the shotgun, causing parts of the animal to splatter everywhere and then just walks out.

    The next morning the Indian returns. He has his shotgun in one hand, pulling another male buffalo with the other. He walks up to the counter and says to the waiter: “Want coffee.”

    The waiter says “Whoa, Tonto! We’re still cleaning up your mess from yesterday. What was all that about, anyway?”

    The Indian smiles and proudly says ..

    “Training for position with Washington State AG office: Come in, drink coffee, shoot the bull, leave mess for others to clean up, disappear for rest of day.”

    [I may have adapted that just a tad for this fiasco created by our very own WA government killers. I just reread the story; it fits those craniuam-challenged, amoral morons just fine. :D ]
