Failed Candidate Jon Russell puts his hypocrisy aside: now says he'll support Briggs on Washougal Planning Commission.

Was it just a week ago that I nailed Russell by the shwantz for his rank hypocrisy in publicly attacking Mike Briggs?

Russell set new boundaries of hypocrisy by claiming that Briggs had "...made 'disparaging remarks' toward the mayor, City Council and developers in local blogs and media."

Russell's horrific state representative campaign, which followed his equally horrific congressional campaign, clearly showing that he would take ANY political job to get out of Washougal, was replete with lies, exaggerations, insults and everything sleazy about politics.

How HE could accuse anyone ELSE of something he, himself was so over-the-top guilty of is simply beyond belief.

And this is one of Russell's MANY problems: he refuses to hold himself to the same standard he applies to everyone else. And it's this kind of megalomaniacal narcissism that makes him unsuitable for any elected position, anywhere.

So, imagine my surprise when I read the following:
Washougal councilman changes opposition to potential planning commission appointee

Council decision is expected during Monday meeting

By Dawn Feldhaus

One has to wonder.

If Russell is such a "person of faith," then why did he feel the need to trash Briggs last week? Why was it OK then... but not so OK now?

His fake "person of faith" shtick is just one of the reasons why he's so objectionable to me as a politico.

There's much more in the article, but you get the gist of it: this brouhaha was Russell being Russell.

And that's not a great place to be.
