WASHAM: TNT sure giving Farris a lot of freebies

I am curious concerning the letter from Robin Farris. This is so blatantly an ad I am wondering how she got this published without labeling it “Political Advertisement” and paying for it, or is this another of her freebies, even to publishing her web site, how to mail petitions, where they will be located, times and places.

She has gotten quite a lot so far. What a way to get publicity without paying for it. It seems there is more to this than meets the eye. Let’s watch closely to see, if she is successful, who will replace Dale

WASHAM: Recall leader gets to play by different rules

What is that odor lingering in the air? Sort of like rotten eggs? Oh, I get it. It is coming from The News Tribune (4-29) and the leader of the Dale Washam recall effort, Robin Farris.

Isn’t it nice that she does not have to play by the same rules Washam is held to? She does not have to pay her lawyers, and her fine of $500 was suspended by the state Public Disclosure Commission and she only has to pay half of it.

The charges of violating regulations governing the reporting of campaign contributions by initially placing
