Yeah, well, Tim Eyman’s chalked up another legal victory of sorts: “Judge puts two versions of Initiative 18 on ballot“. Though for the life of me, I can’t understand how a Snohomish County resident has the standing to go to a Snohomish County court and sue the King County Council.
I’ve written a lot about how thirst for money drives Tim’s political agenda, but his response to the ruling highlights another major motivation behind his political activities… personal vengeance.
“I’m just absolutely euphoric over this ruling,” he said. “Not only do you get a win but you get to rub the Cadillac council’s nose in it.”
Yeah Tim… public policy should be driven by your sick need to rub politician’s noses in it. Like all bullies, this says a lot more about your anxiety over your own personal inadequacies than it says about your opponents.
Give Tim his little legal victories. Because when I-892 goes down to defeat in November, it will be two years and counting since he’s had an all important electoral victory at the polls.
