EYMAN: Apology owed all right – to prostitutes

It’s shocking! Tim Eyman called the governor “a lying whore” in an email (TNT, 2-23).

I am more offended at Gov. Jay Inslee’s weasel-worded promise to veto tax increases and then to state that he would be open to extending existing taxes.

The term “whore” can refer to an unscrupulous person. It can also refer to a person who engages in sexual acts for money. If Eyman owes anyone an apology it would be the prostitutes who were compared to a dishonest politician.

If I don’t want a prostitute to steal my money, I don’t have to associate with one. I can’t say the same for politicians.
