Roach Wins War of Words

Here's the follow-up from the Tacoma News-Tribune to the story about Sen. Pam Roach's lawsuit against her GOP opponent Matt Richardson that you read here first:
Thurston County Superior Court Judge Thomas McPhee has ordered a candidate for 31st District Senate to change his voters' pamphlet statement. That after incumbent Sen. Pam Roach (R-Auburn) filed suit saying the statement was inaccurate and in violation of law governing the state pamphlet.

McPhee, after a Friday hearing, ordered Natt Richardson to alter the statement and remove statements Roach claimed were false.


Here's what the statement will say now:
"Unfortunately, the sanctions against Pam Roach prevent her from contact with Republican senate caucus staff, and more critically, from meeting with other senators in caucus. This severely impairs her ability to represent the people and interests of our district. After 20 years in office, another 4 years of this would not be productive."
Roach said Richardson "got his clocked cleaned."  For his part, Richardson stated, “I am happy that my statements were preserved by the Court with very minor changes.”
