Republican Jane Hague faces DUI charge

It's truly unfortunate that we did not recruit a powerful challenger to Republican Jane Hague (who represents the 6th County Council District) in light of the district's strong support of Democrats last year... and now this:
Metropolitan King County Councilmember Jane Hague faces a Redmond court appearance Aug. 29 on a driving-under-the-influence charge, according to court records.

Neither Hague nor her attorney, William Kirk, could be reached for comment about the July 16 charge.

Hague, who lives in Bellevue and has been a councilmember since 1994, pleaded not guilty to the charge July 30, requested a jury trial and notified the court of an affirmative defense, court filings indicate.
If you live in the 6th District, be sure to write in Brad Larssen today on your primary ballot, under the section for Democratic partisan races.
