OPINION: Deputy mayor lauded, hypocritical left

Local leader deserves praise

I wish to publicly thank Bellevue Deputy Mayor Lynne Robinson for calling Puget Sound Energy’s electric load forecasting into question at a recent city council meeting.

For a number of years PSE has been over-predicting this load apparently to justify unnecessary capital investments and increase their income at the expense of ratepayers. Such courage by an elected official to address this should be supported by all who seek better government.

Hypocrisy on the left

The double standard, dirty tricks and hypocrisy of the Democrats have been exposed during these past weeks regarding the serious charges made against U.S. Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh. The charges are serious, however it seems odd that just now are they raised.

Many Democratic members of Congress (some are lawyers) have publicly sided with Dr. Ford without any thought of presumption of Kavanaugh’s innocence. This alleged assault took place 36 years ago, so the facts are, to say the least, muddled.

On the other hand we have Keith Ellison, a Democrat, who may just become the next Attorney General of the state of Minnesota. No hysterical call for FBI investigation of his alleged crime of assaulting his former girlfriend has been raised by any Democrat. This alleged crime was committed quite recently.

Hypocrisy is alive and well on the left.
