Here's a break for Christine Gregoire, not to mention a blow for justice, finally. Via HorsesAss, Dino Rossi is going to be forced to testify, under oath, this Wednesday about his role in illegally coordinating with the Building Industries Association of Washington for campaign contributions.
Hopefully this will be a juicy enough story for even the Seattle Times to cover (unless they're trying to ferret out Darcy Burner's grade school report cards, to see if she really did play nice with others in second grade). This is real corruption we're talking about now, from the team that has bankrolled Dino Rossi from the start. They've had a very long history of very sleazy politics on behalf of Washington Republicans.
And in other good news for Gregoire, she's leading in the most recent Washington Poll, 51-45. The poll was conducted over six days, 10/18-26, which makes it a little questionable, but it's the second public poll of the race to suggest Gregoire is pulling away. Hopefully Dino's little brush with the legal system on Wednesday will finish him off.
