I almost choked on my Cheerios when I read State Attorney General Bob Ferguson’s Nov. 17 letter to The Herald awhile back stating that his numerous and constant law suits against the Trump administration aren’t costing the taxpayers of Washington any money.
Apparently, he wants us to believe that he and his ilk in the Attorney General’s office are working off the clock with all of the time and effort they are spending on all of these bogus lawsuits that he keeps filing (most of which will be eventually overturned by the higher courts-there goes his 5-0 record).
His claim that the affirmative litigation division of his office is self-sustaining from recoveries is ridiculous. Bob Ferguson is nothing but a typical opportunistic left-wing Democrat supporting the most liberal political causes. He likes to play fast and loose with what state and federal laws he will enforce.
I always thought that the state Attorney General was supposed to be apolitical in performing his or her duties. For example, he doesn’t hesitate to attack small business owners for exercising their religious rights but he is perfectly OK with Sound Transit’s deceptive if not illegal practices or not upholding our federal immigration laws or Seattle’s plan for the illegal “poison injection sites.”
Since Ferguson is posturing to be our next governor, he is seen constantly patting himself on his back at his numerous press conferences (usually with Gov. Inslee at his side joining in the love fest). It’s a wonder Ferguson hasn’t dislocated his shoulder.
When the time comes let’s see Bob Ferguson for his true colors and send him and his “progressive hypocrisy” back into the private sector.
