Every time a new story appears regarding the Dale Washam recall effort, without fail a couple of folks jump to The News Tribune’s website in order to spew their vitriol of unsubstantiated claims and hate towards Robin Farris, who organized the recall.

They fail, again and again, to recognize that the claims against Washam were brought forward based on outside, unbiased investigations and were found to have merit by the state Supreme Court.

They try, again and again, to make this recall about Farris. This action has nothing to do with her and everything to do with Washam. No person made him do what he has done. The decision to violate Pierce County code and just plain good business practice along with common courtesy for the workers in the assessor-treasurer’s office was his and his alone.
