Seattle Times letters to the editor

October 8, 2008 at 4:07 PM

Rossi lawsuit politically motivated

Leave your politics at the door

So much for the myth of the nonpolitical Supreme Court judges [“Ex-judges sue Rossi, builders, challenge fundraising,” Times, news, Oct. 7].

For Faith Ireland and Robert Utter to use their prestige as former Supreme Court judges in this thoroughly partisan way demeans the Supreme Court.

Shame on them.

Any number of other political folks, PACs [political-action committees] or hacks could have brought this suit.

Is it any wonder that citizen initiatives reviewed and cleared over the years by various AGs [attorneys general] still got tanked by the Supreme Court?

If ever there were an advertisement for the need for divided government in Olympia with Republicans running some branch of government and Democrats another — this is it.

— Frank Klapach, Port Orchard
