Letters to the Editor

Low blows delivered late

In the last election, Tim Knue, the then opponent of Barbara Bailey, sent out a flier to the voters in Island County and elsewhere accusing Barbara of all kinds of outrageous positions on issues and flat-out lies on her voting record. There were statements by him that were the exact opposite of her actual position or vote. He sent it out so close to the election date that Barbara had very little time to counter his outright lies before the actual election.

Since he might try this in his current election versus Norma Smith, Republican, and Knue’s current election opponent, I advised her office, who told me they were aware of his dirty tactics.
