Seattle Times letters to the editor

Sen. Tom suggests fining for special sessions

Political move is either irony or hypocrisy

State Senator Rodney Tom is Senate Majority Leader under a deal reached between two renegade Democrats (including Tom) and Republicans in the state Senate. He's a former Republican turned Democrat, who has kind of turned Republican again. [Greg Gilbert, The Seattle Times.]

The Legislature had special sessions because Democrats control the House and Republicans control, narrowly, the Senate. [“Time to fine dawdling lawmakers? Sen. Tom thinks so,” NW Wednesday, July 10.]

The Legislature split when Sen. Rodney Tom won the election as a Democrat, but then joined the Republican caucus.

Sen. Tom now wants to fine members of the Legislature for having special sessions. Irony, or hypocrisy?
