King County Executive Ron Sims appointed a 10-member blue-ribbon commission to review the 200 elections this week. Cheryl Scott was named to head the group.

Meanwhile, Washington Secretary of State Sam Reed will appoint his own review panel. Quis Custodiet Ipsos Custodes? Once again, your tax dollars at work. No word yet if the Girl Scouts will be conducting their own inquiry.
