Stacy Sellers is AWOL NOW, Jon Russell was AWOL THEN.

There appears to be little doubt that the allegations of poor leadership and judgment, along with what might arguably be incompetence and misfeasance or malfeasance, have destroyed any hope for any further political career on the part of soon to be former Washougal mayor Stacee Sellers. She has, essentially, disappeared since the election, where a well-planned and deliberate release of documents detailing some very peculiar spending on the city credit card on her part while she was in Vegas, allegedly on city business... along with a certain missing $100,000 or so.

The local paper used an interesting headline in describing the situation: Sellers AWOL in Washougal

It details the impacts of her invisibility, along with the rather juicy tidbit of a U-Haul outside her home.. so where did she go?

Don't know. And, to put a point on it, I don't care.

What I DO care about is that Jon Russell was AWOL THEN.

Russell, erstwhile congressional candidate and fake conservative, is, God help me, a Washougal City Councilman.

But not just ANY Washougal City Councilman.... oh, no.

He happens to be one of the three city councilmen who sat in oversight of ALL purchases made by this same credit card.

So.... where was HE when these many questionable charges, including alcohol, came up? Well, the alcohol apparently drew a flag,and she repaid the city for those charges.

The unanswered... and at this point, even unaddressed, question is this: Where was Russell?

Where was Russell?

Councilmen Russell, Peterson and Greenlee made up the finance committee that APPROVED Sellers' expenditures.

Where were all these fake, high profile objections then? There weren't any?

Why not?

If any of the three actually tasked with oversight of these expenditures had been doing their jobs... shouldn't this issue have come up THEN?

But it didn't. And now Russell, in his effort to get some cheap publicity, is so busy tossing Sellers under a bus that he really hasn't ever explained why HE failed to do HIS job, letting the taxpayers who entrusted him with this responsibility completely down.

Why is that, Jon? And why is it that you've taken the lead in stringing up Sellers when you failed to take the lead in your job of oversight over the credit card debacle?

I'd REALLY like to know... and since you plan on representing me, perhaps you'll swing by and give me an answer.

You won't, of course, because there IS no answer, save your misfeasance. And I'm pretty sure you don't want to talk about that.
