Vancouver resident Marla Koch offers her support to Greg Kimsey in the race for Clark County auditor
I’m outraged by banners illegally affixed to WSDOT highway fences promoting extremist county auditor candidate Brett Simpson. The bottom of these banners reads, “Not paid for by any candidate or authorized committee,” which allows Simpson to avoid responsibility for the lies therein.
The parasitic signs showing up next to current auditor Greg Kimsey’s signs sport the same disclaimer. We have laws against defacing campaign signs. While these adjacent signs do not literally deface Kimsey’s signs, they do in intent and spirit. If Simpson is not responsible for the banners and signs, he should be loudly and emphatically calling for their removal, for they attack Simpson’s integrity far more than Kimsey’s.
These inflammatory childish banners warn us that Simpson might be willing to find loopholes in the law that allow him to skirt the intent. Is this the type of person we want in charge of handling and accounting for $700 million of taxpayer’s money, the integrity of elections, and the safe-keeping of our records? Or could this be the type of person who would look for loopholes when elections don’t produce the results he wants?
Hasn’t Simpson already cost taxpayers enough with two frivolous lawsuits he filed against Kimsey that the courts dismissed? Now the taxpayers need to pay for WSDOT to remove these illegally placed banners as well.
Vote to retain Greg Kimsey for Clark County Auditor. Honesty, integrity and experience matter!
