Re: "Lindquist opponents file recall petition" (TNT, 6-25).
In October 2014, Pierce County Prosecutor Mark Lindquist emailed many Pierce County voters with a list of his recommendations of candidates in judicial races. I objected strongly to Lindquist and informed him that I believed this to be unethical behavior.
He responded that it was not unethical and that he was providing a valuable service to voters. Now we learn that a Pierce County Superior Court judge must rule on petition to recall Lindquist.
In a 2014 letter to the editor (TNT, 10-20), I wrote: "I don’t believe justice can be impartial if elected judges feel a sense of gratitude towards the prosecutor who helped them get elected."
Never miss a local story.
Was Lindquist prescient in thinking his endorsements might help him in such a case as we now see developing?
