Seems to me, Gov. Gregoire is a typical conniving attorney. According to The Spokesman-Review today, she is entertaining ideas about filing a lawsuit against us for health care coverage for the poor and public employees (“Gregoire threatens lawsuit over kids’ health,” Sept. 25). Lawyers spend vast amounts of money advertising. You know the pitch. One phone call, that’s all. I wonder if she ever chased ambulances?
As our former state attorney general, Gregoire tried to blame an underling for a $20 million loss of taxpayer revenue recklessly spent in a state court case. It’s noteworthy, if she sues us, as taxpayers we pay for our defense, and we also pay to sue ourselves.
Do you think Gregoire’s threatened lawsuit against the federal government would be counterproductive?
