Move on, Spokesman-Review

The Spokesman-Review needs to give it a rest. Your coverage of the “Condon cover-up” is of little relevance or consequence to readers who recognize that he was only trying to exercise some common sense and discretion in handling a bad situation, while respecting the wishes of the purported victim.

Instead, you pat yourselves on the back for creating a cover story of discovery that now seems to be occupying the precious time and compensated energy of elected council members who ought to be focused on other matters.

I suspect those who are trying to capitalize on this story for their own jaded objectives will find themselves later regretting not sticking to the higher road the mayor attempted to take. For the sake of the victim and your constituents, it’s time to bury the past and move on to more productive pursuits.
