Spinning before it’s over

Initiative machine Tim Eyman isn’t waiting for election night to put his spin on the result on Proposition 1, the regional roads-and-transit package. He sends this word today to his friends in the media:

On election night, there will be plenty of spin from both sides: “it

was too much transit,” “it was too many roads,” “it was Sound Transit,” “it

was the RTID.”

It’s all a crock. Prop 1 was doomed from day one because it included a radioactive tax – higher car tab fees.

Takes a spinner to know one.
