County politics: What is a Scott Noble endorsement worth?

Convicted assessor’s backing only throws candidate in doubt

Former King County Assessor Scott Noble has endorsed his chief deputy, Rich Medved, to become his successor [“Scott Noble’s parting endorsement,” seattletimes.com, Politics Northwest, June 26].

What is the value of an endorsement from a man whose judgment is so impaired he not only drives drunk the wrong way on the freeway, but he fails to resign from a position of public trust for six months after he is caught driving drunk — and only resigns because he is forced to by law?

This causes me to question my original inclination to vote for Noble’s deputy.

— Greg Bartholomew, Seattle
