Withdrawing the Acceptance of an Apology (Updated)

by lewwaters

Anybody that has paid any attention realizes by now that I have soured quite a bit on the Clark County Republican Party under the Ron Paul Brown Shirt Republican Liberty Caucus due to the smears directed at me personally over my exposing Christian Berrigan’s sneaky, underhanded effort to stack PCO slots. Those smears were done from the shadows by people unknown, but connected to the CCGOP and refuse to come out in the open, leaving me with no one connected to the party that I can trust. Towards the top of that list of those I can no longer trust is County Commissioner David Madore, in large part for hearing of how many believe he funded these cowardly people and that he was caught undermining the efforts of this blog, explained at Prosper and Thrive? But, that wasn’t the first time Madore took something from me to put out as his.

Jeanne ‘Gavel Down’ Harris Forgives Community, Resumes Council Duties

by lewwaters

Vancouver, Washington’s city council member, Jeanne Harris, known nationally for her abusive mannerism towards citizens and fellow council members, has returned from her successful and enjoyable month-long vacation throughout Germany.

Prior to the ‘citizen’s communication’ segment of Monday evenings council meeting, Ms. Harris was granted a “personal point of privilege’ to speak to the community. After outlining what a wonderful time she had during her month-long trip, she spent a few seconds to say her trip gave her time “to think about what happened” and stating she realize there was “absolutely no excuse” for her behavior and it was “inappropriate.”

UPDATE: Vancouver City Council Ethics Panel Decision HERE

Unscientific poll on Harris’ fate HERE

Jeanne Harris on Lars Larson, Wednesday September 15, 2010:

Not unexpected, but controversial Vancouver City Council Member Jeanne Harris, under fire for her outbursts aimed at citizens and fellow Council Member Jeanne Stewart, as well as facing an ethics probe that could result in punitive action, has issued a press release stating an apology for her disgraceful conduct.

Press Release

From Councilmember Jeanne Harris
City of Vancouver
For Immediate Release

In every life there are things that happen that you wish didn’t and Monday night’s council meeting during citizen’s communications I behaved in a manner that is not normal for me.

I want to publically apologize to the citizen’s that attended citizen’s communications, the citizen’s of Vancouver and to the mayor and city council and specifically to Councilmember Jeanne Stewart for any actions on my part that were disrespectful and inappropriate.

I have not been asked to do this; I know that I was not being my usual self and recognize that I have disappointed not only myself but many others as well. The best thing I can do is learn from this experience and always try to do my very best for the citizen’s of Vancouver.

I appreciate the support and confidence that you have shown me in the past and will work hard to rebuild your trust in me in the future.

While I can appreciate an apology, the sincerity of it is in question as this is not the first instance of Ms. Harris going off on others in such a manner, as noted previously on Clark County Conservative.

This should have no bearing on the ethics complaint she faces and she must be held accountable for such disgraceful conduct, as would any person in public office.

An apology, if sincere, is a good start, but should not be the end of the matter.

UPDATE: Harris is saying she is being treated without respect or dignity and she is owed an apology since Burkman and Smith did not speak to her before lodging their complaint against her. Harris’ Apology

This definitely brings doubt to the sincerity of her “apology.”

Harris apologizes, but is angered by councilors’ complaint
