Eyman, Fagans draw their paychecks…

With a big assist from Woodinville investor Mike Dunmire, initiative promoter Tim Eyman says he'll draw a political paycheck this year of $86,742.

On Dec. 12, according to state campaign finance reports, Dunmire and his wife ponied up $100,000, nearly half the $209,000 that supporters contributed to a "compensation fund" for Eyman and his Spokane-based, father-son team of Jack and Mike Fagan. The Fagans, who run the bookeeping and administrative side of the operation, will each get half of what Eyman got, or $43,371 apiece.
