You were asked about your office’s criteria in bringing a Consumer Protection violation case. Remember what you said was your number one concern?
How many consumers are actually complaining? — Robert McKenna
Washington State Attorney General
0 for 3
And since you asked, I thought I’d help you out . . .
“How many consumers are actually complaining?”
Ugh, none, Rob.
Not sure that really matters though. Your office seems to have a history of pursuing bogus Consumer Protection violation cases against businesses where no complaints were made.
“I mean is there, is this actually coming from the public, from consumers?”
No, it’s not.
It’s coming from county prosecutors who don’t want me involved in tax sale overage plays. They view tax sale overages as their own and are hopeful your action will put me out of business.
“Or is it, is uh, investigation being driven by an agenda or by politics?”
Since county prosecutors have put you up to this, it is entirely agenda driven. Add to that your office’s desperate need for political gain (the press release being a good example of just how much you’re willing to twist the truth to achieve it) and you’re pretty much 0 for 3 here.
