State Relations

The “Lowest” Profession?

I think I got “dissed,” but really, it’s ok.  Seattle Times reporter Ralph Thomas posted a story this afternoon about Governor Gregoire’s “Citizen Engagement Tour” which has been making the rounds through the state over the past couple of weeks.

The story mentions that in response to criticism from some Republicans that the tour is really a taxpayer financed political campaign, the Governor is quoted as saying “What am I supposed to do, sit in Olympia and listen to lobbyists all day?”

I’m sure she really didn’t mean “me” when she said that.  Then again?
