Hill Watch: Jessie Hill Charges Sheriff Paul Pastor with Violating Campaign Ethics
Jessie (Robert “The Traveller”) Hill has filed a formal ethics complaint against Sheriff Paul Pastor, less than two weeks before the final day of the election. The complaint alleges that Sheriff Pastor failed to disclose $15,000 worth of in-kind contributions, including a $10,000 billboard and a $5,000 promotional ad in the Tacoma News Tribune. The complaint, visible here, goes on to accuse Cascade Regional Blood Services of playing an inappropriate role in Pastor’s campaign.
Mr. Hill released the following statement:
First, this blood bank takes free blood from people and sells it at profit to hospitals; then, using their
law firm Shillito & Giske, who also gave money to Pastor, they take this profit and conveniently plan a
publicity campaign that coincides with the election season, from the first week of June to the last week
of September…I recommend that all individuals in Pierce county boycott this organization,
for the next six months! They should just go direct to the hospital they want to support.
The Melon will report on more information as it becomes available.
