In an email sent to reporters within the last hour, Tim Eyman has announced that he will be venturing out into public for a very brief Election Night party, to be held at a north Seattle Krispy Kreme, on Aurora Avenue.
According to the message sent by Eyman, the party (if it can be called that… maybe Eyman sighting would be more accurate) will begin at 8:50 PM and conclude twenty-five minutes later, at 9:15 PM.
Eyman suggested that he might buy donuts for any reporters who showed up, but did not make a definitive promise.
The north Seattle Krispy Kreme Eyman intends to make an appearance at is across the street from the election night party being organized by Eyman benefactor Faye Garneau, who financed the opposition to Let’s Move Seattle (Proposition #1).
Is that a coincidence? We think not.
Evidently, Eyman plans on paying a visit to Garneau tonight, probably before he shows up at the Krispy Kreme to comment on the results.
Last month, after the Public Disclosure Commission voted to refer its investigation into Eyman’s violation of public disclosure laws to Attorney General Bob Ferguson, Garneau publicly defended Eyman, telling The Seattle Times’ Danny Westneat, It’s no big deal! Everybody else is making money off politics. Why not him, too?”
