Is is a long story that is recited in this earlier Poli Buzz post.
Let’s just say that when Tim Eyman received his second Schrammie from KOMO commentator Ken Schram he was hoping to sell it for as much as he sold his first Schrammie. But Schram, not wanting to give Eyman something of value that could be used to fund his initiative campaigns, didn’t send one of the bobblehead dolls symbolic of the anti-award.
So Eyman decided to auction off the non-existent doll. Thus was born the Invisible Schrammie. And the winner is…West Seattle’s Jim Coombes who bid $1,100. That’s a c-note more than the $1,000 the actual bobblehead went for in that earlier auction.
