Those feathers, they give it away…


Good morning, Netizens...

Spokane attorney Mike Ormsby was nominated Wednesday to be the next U.S. attorney for Eastern Washington. Ormby, is a partner in the K & L Gates LLP legal firm that specializes in working with local governments and public entities on municipal finance matters.

Patti Murray, a senior senator, has already praised the Ormsby selection, uttering the usual collection of inanities one hears from her office, including that he is “well-qualified for the job.”

However, several others have asserted that putting Ormsby in as US Attorney is tantamount to hiring a smooth-talking fox in a three-piece suit to guard the chicken house because of his involvement in the River Park Square Development project. Furthermore, there is a wealth of evidence which suggests they might be right.

His fingerprints are all over the history of River Park Square Development. If you look really closely though, you can see the chicken feathers in the corner of his mouth from having already raided the chicken coop a time or two already.

The only statement Ormsby needs to make is explaining the approximate $87 million dollar bill for River Park Square Development, all of which the taxpayers are going to pay. Explain that and the chicken feathers in the corners of his mouth and I might support him. Of course, maybe not.
