Well, gosh Selinda...Why don't you tell us what you really think?
Now, if you haven't read the article about Selinda Barkhuis calling upon the County Commissioners to fire Jim Jones, you really ought to. It's long and fascinating and very illuminating - though not always in ways those involved probably intended.
Again, I urge you to read the article for yourself. I'll just include one of the more interesting little tidbits here, as a sort of teaser...
Sheriff Bill Benedict said he was surprised to see Barkhuis' email, which he
forwarded as a news release at 4:12 p.m.
“I am embarrassed for county elected officials, to see that coming from one of
us out of the blue,” Benedict said later Monday.
“Nobody has seen Selinda for months coming to work, and she has the temerity to
put that out?”
So yeah, on one hand, you've got Selinda seemingly acting kind of crazy, and coming across as possibly a little paranoid about the hostile workplace and good ol' boys out to get her.
But on the other hand, you've got the County Sheriff taking it upon himself to send out an internal email as a news release - an action which clearly fits into Selinda's hostile good ol' boys out to get her narrative. I mean, really, since when does the Sheriff send out news releases about internal budget battles?
Hmmm...The Clallam County Courthouse as a hotbed of sexism? Of cronyism? Of backroom deals and backstabbing BS? Ground zero for good ol' boys self-serving sexist cronyism backroom deals?
Might not such a place indeed be very, very hostile to those challenging or threatening the status quo? Gee, ya think?
