Governor Jay Inslee, Alleged Lying Whore

There’s outrage over in Washington, the other Washington, because Governor Jay Inslee, who serves as Governor of Washington, was dubbed a “Lying Whore” by opponents of his tax hikes.

Most of the outrage is localized in the media which is busy calling for more civility after a letter sent out by Voters Want More Choices described the Democrat as a “Lying Whore”.

“Candidate Inslee repeatedly promised to veto any tax increase,” the Voters Want More Choices letter said. “He said no way to higher transportation taxes in 2013. Inslee said he’d grow jobs to generate more tax revenue. What a lying whore he turned out to be.”

In his defense Inslee has argued that he only opposes extending old taxes that are due to expires, but he also apparently supports new transportation taxes, making him a liar, if not necessarily a whore.

During the campaign, Inslee said, “I would veto anything that heads the wrong direction and the wrong direction is new taxes in the state of Washington.” That statement was just ambiguous enough for Inslee’s defenders to claim that he isn’t technically a lying whore.

The Washington GOP Chairman has called on the man behind the letter to apologize for labeling Inslee a “Lying Whore”. While the GOP Chairman does support calling Governor Inslee a liar, he does not support calling him a whore.

Governor Inslee’s spokesman has refused to respond to allegations that the governor is a lying whore. Tim Eyman, one of the men behind the letter, has refused to apologize for describing the lying governor as a “Lying Whore.”

“(Inslee) doesn’t deserve an apology,” Eyman said. “He deserves to keep his word and as promised to not raise taxes, to veto any taxes, and if there are going to be any taxes they should go on the ballot.”

Mike Fagan, another of the men behind the letter, defended the description of Inslee as a lying whore by pointing that the dictionary definition of whore accommodates anyone who is “considered as having compromised principles for personal gain.”

The Seattles Times and the Spokesman Review have been working themselves into a fit, calling for more civility and denouncing the denunciation of Inslee as a “Lying Whore” as childish, vulgar and juvenile. They have not however responded with a factual argument proving that Governor Inslee is not in fact a lying whore.

The same media that has no problem with civility when going after Republicans, discovers a hidden civility gene when one of their own lying liars is dubbed a lying whore for being a liar. But that civility is never reciprocated.

When Eyman was asked in a phone interview why Jay Inslee was labeled a “Lying Whore”, he replied: “For the same reason that the little boy said the emperor has no clothes, because it’s true.”
