I’m a bit late on this story from December. Local GOP activists are elated, I’m told.
King County Executive Ron Sims was released from the hospital today following weekend surgery to remove his gall bladder.
According to his office, Sims was admitted to Virginia Mason Medical Center Saturday afternoon after complaining of abdominal pain. Doctors removed his gallbladder on Sunday.
The laparoscopic surgery is a common procedure, according to a statement from Sims’ office. The doctors expect a full recovery. Executive Sims will rest at home over the next week.
It’s hard to fathom now, but he was totally beatable in ’05, what with the Critical Areas Ordinance, the election stuff, and the whole Southwest Airlines thing at Boeing Field. The GOP then nominated a guy who allegedly whomped on his momma and lied on his resume. Nice!
The GOP’s new plan to oust him is clear: they’re going to take him out organ by organ.
