Geoff Simpson faces domestic violence charge

A state legislator was charged with assault last week, two years after similar domestic-violence charges against him were dropped.

I saw this item by the Everett Herald’s Jerry Cornfield from Thursday as I was catching up today on what I missed after a week off. Rep. Geoff Simpson is accused of pushing past his ex-wife to get into their daughter’s hospital room May 22, Cornfield reports.

The Seattle City Attorney’s office charged the Covington Democrat with one count of misdemeanor assault. He faces a July 26 court date.

Simpson says he’s innocent. He told Cornfield his ex-wife grabbed his arm to keep him from entering, and said the charge is part of

an extremely difficult cycle of false and outrageous allegations being made against me for various motives as the divorce settlement was mediated and since then as changes have been sought. All of the allegations raised against me in various venues over the past few years have been determined to be unfounded or dismissed time and again.

Charges from an earlier dispute between Simpson and his ex-wife were dropped in 2008.

    the next time I see this kind of trash bantered about a Republican, I don’t expect to see their party affiliation either…

    Typical democrat, low standards, wife beater, but that is ok as long as you give away the farm or force them to move such as Boeing, I guess we didn’t need there business, as democrats we don’t have to play by the rules or enforce the law!

    Did you miss the part where they stated that he is a democrat?
