Richard Roesler at Eye on Olympia reports that the husband of incoming state Rep. Shelly Short, R-Addy, pleaded guilty yesterday to third degree theft involving money stolen from a fair board.
Seems during the campaign Short and her husband had leveled all sorts of accusations against the Spokesman-Review, using terms like “political smear job” and the shoddy conservative standby “elitist.”
There’s far more to the tale of the Shorts, but it’ll be simpler if you just go read Roesler’s post.
Invoking the Ten Commandments is always a tell, huh? Harry Truman used to relay a saying he attributed to his grandfather that went something like, “If a man sings too loud on Saturday night and prays too loud on Sunday morning, best go home and lock up the smoke house.”
