Dunn: Not done…

Embattled Rep. Jim Dunn, stripped of his committee assignments and state travel money and publicly rebuked by his own caucus leader after an alleged "inappropriate" remark to a woman after a recent Tri-cities meeting, is vowing to run for re-election next year.

Here's what Dunn had to say to Columbian columnist Gregg Herrington:

“She just happened to be sitting in the wrong place,” Dunn said. “I was upset about something else and unfortunately that affected my remark to her. … The incident wasn’t all that great, and I apologized within a few minutes. She seemed to be OK with it. She didn’t move away.”


A lot of this is political crap. … I haven’t done anything to be ashamed of. I have done nothing the constituents of my district should be ashamed of either.”
