Look, I get why the city council in Washougal goes along with Russell. After all, they believe that there's a better chance of getting rid of this clown if they give him what he wants.
In that regard, it's not surprising that they do moronic things like worthless resolutions that will make absolutely no difference in anything but to give someone tearing down trust in government a stage to desperately change the message away from his own lies and exaggerations.
What you DON'T see is him leading the effort to do a Woodland-type resolution supporting the Arizona law... an discussion that Russell couldn't even be bothered to show up for.
We can bet we'll now be deluged with letters to the editor spinning Russell's lies and exaggerations. But at the end of the day, Russell is a liar and a serial exaggerator... and NO amount of bogus, "hooray for me" resolutions can change that.
