Per the controversy about the timber land exchange letters of support that Mike Chapman and Dim King Jim McEntire sent behind then Commissioner Mike Doherty's back, Dim King Jim had this to say:
"My conscience is clean. I think the allegations was founded in nothing other than the foul blast of partisan politics. Everything we do here, we do our very best to do according to the law as transparently and in an aboveboard fashion. I think this commission is a model of openness and transparency in all cases. So that's all I have to say about that."
Bad grammar aside, do you agree with Dim King Jim? Do you believe him? Was this a "foul blast" of partisan politics from Mike Doherty? Or is Dim King Jim practicing the classic art of accusing your enemy of doing what you yourself are, in fact, doing? Is it possible that the initial blast of flatulent foulness actually came from Dim King Jim himself?
Of the players involved, who do you trust? Who do you believe?
"Oh no! It's a blast of partisan politics! I swear!"
