Congratulations Jenny

It’s not really news, because we all knew it was coming, but President Obama officially nominated Seattle attorney Jenny Durkan today, to serve as the next US Attorney for Western Washington.  For those who forgot, Durkan’s the attorney who kicked the Republican’s ass during the 2005 trial over Dino Rossi’s contest of the 2004 gubernatorial election results.

Hmm… I wonder if she can fix my ticket?

Sandeep’s got more on the nomination over at Publicola.

    Maybe you could get Jenny Durkan to charge the person who issued your red light ticket with mail fraud. The statement on the ticket is obviously incorrect, and they sent it through the United States mail with the intent to have you send money to the City of Seattle. Granted, the mens rea and the intent to defraud are a little bit sketchy, but they can be implied from the other evidence. The Bush administration filed criminal charges against political opponents with a hell of a lot less evidence than exists in your case.

    @2 Don’t worry, Durkan will run a professional and nonpartisan U.S. Attorney’s Office, which is more than you slimeballs did …

    @6 You remind me of a turd floating in a toilet bowl the last guy to use the stall forgot to flush.

    This woman will be very fair and only go after repubs like she should, she won’t be no buttlicker…mmm buttlicking.

    manoftruth spews:

    roger, is that stall in a traditional mens room, or is it from new york or hollywood or palm beach that have unisex stalls. because the turd would probably be smaller if it was from a woman.

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    @8 It must’ve been in a Republican hangout, because Democrats always flush. We don’t like Republican turds hanging around too long.

    Outstanding choice!

    The disgusting right wing represented here by the bottom-of-the-barrel fiendoflies is sinking day by day.

    I just love this!!!

    Sorry folks, but name hijacking shows an inability to articulate your own ideas and defend them.

    re 17: You have to admit, the thought of Marvin’s wife peeing in his mouth is thought provoking.

    It’s kind of like a Robert Maplethorpe word vignette — without the Federal Funding.

    It’s a win/win!

    Strange how it is always the identities of the trolls that get impersonated.
    It does say something about left wing-nuts.

    Tom Foss spews:

    Rather than degenerate into this kind of commentary, why not just celebrate this choice? I watched Jenny give her closing argument in the Governor’s trial, with the brief and emotional reference to her dad who had just passed, and her brief reference to the great dignity and obligation of public service she learned from her dad. She will bring that to this office in the fairest and classiest fashion.

    What a great choice. She will do us proud. Then maybe in a few years we can talk her into moving our Congressman for life out of there.

    Yes your identity got impersonated Marvin the child rapist and yes you are a troll. What’s your point bitch?
