Dear God…Goldy is back to his infernal begging again.
Just because gubernatorial candidate and current state Attorney General Rob McKenna gets a car as a form of political contribution, doesn’t mean Goldy is entitled.
Simply put, Goldy isn’t influential enough. I mean, even as a journalist for a prestigious regional newspaper, Goldy doesn’t quite make the cut as an…
…overseer of business practices by the state’s automobile dealerships.
or as the state’s top dog consumer advocate who
…receives complaints against dealers for deceptive advertising practices, dishonest promotions or hidden costs.
or as the Washington consumer’s investigator, prosecutor, judge and executioner, who
…investigates, determines penalties, negotiates settlement agreements and — on occasion — takes miscreants to court.
It’s not like Goldy is ever going to be in a position to craft…
…settlements with car dealers over advertisements that allegedly violated the state’s consumer protection laws.
Nope…Goldy just doesn’t have the clout of an Attorney General.
But since he is something of a sports writer—namely, author of The Stranger’s Sports Blotter column—maybe the UW Huskey Football team should be donating season tickets to Goldy…
