Condon can’t contain stench

Spokane Mayor David Condon has an odor problem. You would too, if you’d kept the Frank Straub imbroglio bottled up for months prior to your re-election. Now that he’s kept his seat, the stink is seeping out.

No matter how long Condon stares into the funhouse mirror, he cannot erase the fact he and other arch druids at City Hall kept l’affaire Straub out of the news until the-boy-who-would-be-mayor was safely back in the saddle.

And now he wants to inflict another illegitimately conceived choice for police chief on Spokane? With apologies to the Bard, upon what meat doth this mayor feed that he is grown so great?
