Dem chairman: Eyman is 'like herpes'

At an anti-Initiative 1125 party at a Pioneer Square bar, partygoers drank beer and appeared confident Tim Eyman’s latest initiative would go down in defeat.

State Democratic Party Chairman Dwight Pelz had harsh words for Eyman, the serial initiative sponsor: “Tim Eyman is like herpes,” he said. “Just when you think it’s gone, it comes back.”

Asked whether he had personal experience with that, Pelz said he did get a rash every time another initiative came around.

Noting he wasn’t involved in the campaign, Pelz added, “I’m just here to rant!”
