Now, can you please stop the "don't blame us, it's not our fault" stuff?
It seems people are giving you a pass on this new law debacle, and I for one am determined not to let that happen.
Yesterday’s post contained a comment from Eric. His email address indicated he was with an online news organization and hearing him say your office is somehow not responsible for the mess we’re now in troubles me.
And with David and Janelle and Kristen assigned to shift the blame from your office to anyone other than your office, it’s clear it’s politics as usual.
Just one thing . . .
Let’s all be very clear and not let the spin doctoring obscure the simple fact that your office endorsed the amended version of the bill. Pretending it did not is a bald-faced lie.
And so again, here’s your AAG Jim Sugarman, at the podium . . .
Did you catch that last part?
If not, I’ll spell it out for you . . .
So we’ve crafted, as, as, ugh, what Representative Lantz said, a very simple bill addressing that transaction and that’s what we’re here in support of today.— Jim Sugarman
Assistant Attorney General
Your office came before the Legislature and endorsed the last and final version of the bill. It has your fingerprints all over it, and you encouraged its support, period.
Now, can you please stop the “don’t blame us, it’s not our fault” nonsense? That characterization is simply not true, no matter how hard you all attempt to spin it today.
With no reservations, your office asked the Legislature to pass it. You gave it, in its final, horrific form, your office’s unqualified support. As a result, this disastrous new law is and always will be, without question, 100% YOUR doing, Rob.
I suggest now would be a good time to change it from the Joe Kaiser Bill to the Rob McKenna Debacle.
In the arena,
