Every time I pass an Adam Fortney for Sheriff sign my mind is pulled back to the horrific campaign this county has witnessed. This man is literally running a campaign founded on incarcerating people with a disease. A disease Snohomish County is currently suing the pharmaceutical industry for accelerating out of anyone’s control.
My mind is left to wonder what possible horrific life event has persuaded this or that individual to endorse such a morally bankrupt pursuit. I refuse to believe that these people have lived such a perfect life free of controversy and drama that they know no one who has been affected by this epidemic currently gripping our entire nation.
So who are they? So what motivates them? What has possessed these people to abandon compassion in the name of Fortney’s maladapted vision of what this county needs?
What is it about throwing diseased individuals in jail that gets them so riled up? What is it about his message that mobilizes them and makes them act on his behalf? Are they victims of this epidemic? Are they survivors?
Or are they just holy enough to hold the privilege of casting the first stone?
Find out what makes these people so divine and above the rest of us.
Surely we all can stand to benefit from their secrets, right?
