In a Palinesque maneuver, Dino Rossi is seeking to block subpoenas in the unfolding Buildergate scandal:
Lawyers for Republican candidate for governor Dino Rossi plan to file papers Monday for a court case in Seattle.
They are trying to prevent him from having to testify in a lawsuit challenging campaign spending by the Building Industry Association of Washington.
Rossi’s campaign says the lawsuit is politically motivated.
Politically motivated? Well, yeah, maybe. But what does that matter? Either there is enough evidence to proceed or there isn’t? The question is, if Rossi really is innocent of illegal campaign coordination he should have nothing to hide. So why avoid the deposition?
