Local clinics feel waves of national policyThis, of course, is a lie. Sarah Russell, Jon's wife, is not a doctor and never has been.
Newly-signed healthcare legislation creates new rules, regulations and many questions

In Clark County, where 10 percent of the population is uninsured and another 13 percent can't afford access to healthcare, according to the Clark County Public Health Dept., many patients are already encountering the effects of a brave new world in healthcare - one complete with different rules, regulations and lots of questions.
Though Jon Russell isn't a medical practitioner, as co-owner of Columbia Gorge Medical Center in Washougal with his wife, Dr. Sarah Russell, he claims to have a novel approach to healthcare. As does Dr. Rebecca Hoffman, who runs a similar clinic in Vancouver, Great West Family Care.
Why someone has to lie about this sort of thing is simply beyond me. But lying like that is yet another reason to vote for someone... anyone.... besides a clearly pathological liar.
Russell had a duty to tell the truth to these people.. He had an additional duty to correct this story once it came out.
Do we want a proven liar to represent us in the legislature?
I know I don't.
