The hot mess of election eve and a death in the House: your political week in review

It was a busy week in the politics world. Campaigns scrapped with each other and begged, cajoled and harrassed voters to turn in their ballots ahead of next Tuesday’s election deadline. We also had a death, future campaign prospects and an interesting look into lobbying at the state Attorney General’s Office. Here’s how it went:

1. Stoned-driving accusation dogs lawmaker’s campaign.

2. Former Bellevue councilwoman charged in theft of I-591 campaign signs.

3. Truth Needles: I-591 gun rights ads misrepresents law enforcement; Seattle’s Prop. 1A mailer asserts rival pre-K measure leaves out low-income; Seattle’s Prop. 1B campaign overstates extent of preschool funding.

4. Former AG McKenna almost immediately back in touch with old office on behalf of clients like Microsoft (NYT).

5. Gun rights equal to gay rights? “No on I-594″ fliers try to appeal to Seattle voters.

6. ‘Pray Your Gay Away’? Celis says Democrats distort his views.

7. Allegations of prejudice in two state Senate campaigns.

8. Reichert says he’ll consider run for governor or Senate in ’16.

9. Federal Way state Rep. Roger Freeman dies at 48.
