Seattle Times letters to the editor

King County Council members can collect money, set up fund

Accepting cash will lead to corruption

The Times article on King County Council members accepting cash included council members stating that it will not influence their vote in any way. [“County Council members will collect cash for expenses,” page one, June 27.]

I find that hard to believe. Politicians and money stick together just like bees and honey.

I wonder also if they report this to the International Revenue Service. I hope they will be targeted.

Wesley Walimaa, Federal Way
