Ferguson mistakes Dunn's prank for 'serious crime'
Not who we want in office
The Seattle Times performed a public service when it fact-checked Bob Ferguson’s calculated distortions about his opponent [“Prank, not probation: Dunn’s past overstated,” NWSunday, June 24].
Ferguson’s deceptive mischaracterization of a minor infraction committed by his then-17-year-old opponent, Reagan Dunn, makes it clear to me that Ferguson does not deserve to be elected attorney general of Washington.
Either Ferguson is an incompetent lawyer, is willing to torture the truth until it screams for mercy to further his naked personal ambition or both — neither are qualities I want residing in the attorney general’s office.
The attorney general should be dedicated to justice and the rule of law, which demands a great appreciation of, and reverence for, the truth.
The deliberate distortions by Ferguson to further his political ambitions are obviously indicative of the character of the man. No citizen of this state should want someone with such glaring flaws leading the most important legal office in Washington.
