Yeah... that's what happened.
That was a lie, of course... a lie not unlike the lies she used to get elected to the Senate... lies that looked a great deal like this:

When I confronted her over her lies at a town hall meeting... this was her response:
Most everything she said in this gibberish was false, exaggerated or fantasy.
Particularly when it came to the lie about voting to screw us because, allegedly, it would stop Inslee from doing this:

Will Inslee be missed?

There are only so many reasons Rivers would babble that nonsense.
1. She actually believed it.
2. She knew better but lied deliberately.
3. She was so desperate to excuse her betrayal that there was no lie she wouldn't tell to save her own ass.
Regardless of these reasons, any one of them makes her unfit to hold elective office.
You see, I knew that either Inslee was lying or the GOP Senate made it up to give themselves cover for screwing us.
But since Inslee had been up to that point (and continues to be even now) such an abysmal failure as governor that he HAD to accomplish SOMETHING... I also knew there was no way he would back down or back off this issue. It was far too much like Obama and his idiotic Obamacare insanity.
So, there ya have it. Rivers' claim about Inslee and his carbon tax was completely false, from start to finish. But like most lies, the truth was bound to come out sooner or later. And now, Inslee is taking a Swiss vacation at taxpayer expense to babble his lies on carbon taxes even more.
I'm surprised he didn't take Rivers with him. Because she's the best liar in local politics today... and she can sharpen her skills in the big leagues.
