No, I don’t plan to blog about this (too busy working on important stuff), but, well, it wouldn’t be right to let the day go by here without at least a little mention:

So, our old friend Tim Eyman (this blog’s namesake) faces a $2 million civil penalty. Which is great and all that. But I must admit to being disappointed that he isn’t facing felony charges. And no, I’m not afraid to publicly assert that I think he committed multiple felonies.
FYI, for those keeping track, I first broke the story that ultimately led to this lawsuit almost five years ago in The Stranger. As for the notion that Timmy was getting kickbacks from signature gatherers, I suggested that back in 2006. So, you know, I told you so.
