Tim “Biggest Lie of My Life” Eyman as been dealt another blow today by King County Superior Court Judge Marshall Ferguson. Ferguson blocked I-976, Eyman’s most recent $30 car tab initiative, from taking effect.
King County Superior Court Judge Marshall Ferguson expressed concern during a hearing Tuesday that [the ballot measure’s] language was misleading, and in his order Wednesday he said the plaintiffs were likely to win their case. He ordered Washington state to cease efforts to implement the initiative on Dec. 5, when it was due to take effect, pending further orders.
Just given Eyman’s record of repeated failures on ballot measures, I-976 is likely to be struck down. In general, Eyman has a robust pattern of failure, dishonesty, and fiscal mismanagement in his life, that has recently resulted in civil suit, bankruptcy, a divorce, and a even a very public episode of shop lifting.
In his latest move, Eyman is running for Governor. But he can’t even do that honestly, with campaign material saying “Governor Eyman for Washington” and “Governor Tim Eyman for Washington.”
So, unless he has even more difficulties in filing to run, we will see Eyman’s name on the ballot for the August 4th primary. That will be just one more way for Tim Eyman to engage in ballot vandalism.
