Eh, it's not as if Eastern Washington would vote for a Democrat anyway.

Still, the man needs to travel more. If you travel enough places, you learn how serious produce-quarantine regulations need to be.

Umm. Ok. Dude made a mistake. 

Inslee is a good leader. This is one incident.

Apples are just one aspect of Washington. But that's more California's thing as opposed to Microsoft. (Sorry. Had to.)

I can tell he's not a Republican governor. He didn't try to deny it. He didn't try to say someone else did it. He apologized for it.

It's not like Eastern Washington was ever going to like Inslee, or any Democrat anyway, but .. this was still dumber than crap to do.

For fark's sake!

Seriously, we have signs on major roads & highways, reminding folks about apple maggot quarantines. It's drilled into everyone's heads. What in the hell was he (or wasn't he) thinking?!

True, but that doesn't mitigate what he did, and to be honest, I agree with the former chair of the Senate Agriculture Committee - throwing the book at him, and making him a vocal example, would be a good reminder for everyone in Washington that the state takes this shiat seriously, and that there's a farking huge negative dollar sign should someone fark up badly enough to endanger large swathes of orchards.

The GOP in this state is a dumpster fire where treason can be discussed as being your patriotic duty.

It won't win a statewide office again for a generation.

Thank you for saying this - I was coming in to say the exact same thing. I am sure we'll be hearing "But her apples!" until the election from the RWNJs here, though.

This is Inslee's Republican opponent, Loren Culp:

"Among the defendants is Loren Culp, who is now the police chief in the town of Republic and a Republican candidate for Washington governor. The lawsuit alleges Culp and two other law enforcement officers intimidated the victim, threatened to charge her with making false claims and failed to report her allegations to child welfare authorities as required by law."

A class act, through and through.

He violated apple maggot quarantine area laws in the state of Washington, and transported homegrown apples containing apple maggots outside of a quarantine area.

Governor Jay Inslee was an idiot who meant well, and may have endangered apple orchards in that area. Until they can locate and deal with the apples he gave out, there's a risk.

I'm sure he's done lots of things I don't like.

But given the a) state focus on apples and b) regional focus on invasive species in recent decades, this is egregiously stupid. Like, Trump stupid.
