Now that the feds are investigating Pierce County Assessor-Treasurer Dale Washam (TNT, 10-2), the handwriting is on the wall. Washam should use simple common sense and resign before this whole fiasco goes any further.

Although the recall effort against him failed, it’s quite clear that he can no longer be an effective public official. He should do us all a favor and get out now before he causes any more issues for the people of Pierce County.
