Jon Russell, Washougal City Council Member, former candidate for Washington’s 3rd Congressional District, who bailed after seeing any hopes me held dashed by the entrance of Jaime Herrera, and current hopeful to replace Jaime as she steps down from her seat in the 18th Legislative District, is still trying to build a resume’ exaggerating questionable accomplishments.
After he tucked tail and slinked away from the 3rd CD run, obviously sucking up to Herrera by endorsing her after she destroyed any prayer he had, I placed Jon on ignore. But, sometimes, I just can’t ignore obvious bogus and exaggerated claims.
The claim? Look at the bottom of the follow flyer Jon is spreading around and you’ll see, “He forced a corrupt elected official in his own party to resign.”
Although Stacee Sellers did step down before her time was fully up, I have yet to hear of any charges of corruption filed against her or of any criminal charges filed on anybody over the mis-actions that she and the city council allowed to occur.
Jon also doesn’t say that he was on the oversight committee, signing off on the very expenditures he says were corruption.

To me, it only stands to reason that since Jon had oversight on the mayor’s expenditures and signed off on those expenditures, can he be any less corrupt than he accuses her of being?
Jon, clean up the mess you helped create in Washougal before you try to get to Olympia to create new ones.
