In an unusual move for the folks at The Zero, they published an editorial this morning that was surprisingly positive in its portrayal of Republican candidate for Secretary of State Knute Buehler’s proposal to audit municipalities and agencies most at risk due to increasing PERS payment requirements, in hopes of elevating awareness of just how significant an issue this has become.
The editors talked with incumbent partisan Kate Brown, who had this to say:
In response to Buehler’s proposal, Brown says she’d be concerned about using the office’s audit function as a political tool. “I think that would undermine confidence in our work, its independence and its objectivity,” she says. “I would be concerned about using the auditing function to advance a political agenda.”
She’s not as adept at delivering lines as, say, Jay Leno, but that quote does elicit a belly laugh, coming as it does from a partisan hack who has done little other than advance Democrat political agendas during her term in office. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QYHSDuLUSug
