Joe Mallahan accused his opponent in the Seattle mayor's race, Mike McGinn, of "dishonest tactics" this week because of a telephone poll McGinn is running. Mallahan says the poll isn't really seeking voters' opinions about the proposed deep-bore tunnel on the waterfront. Mallahan says the poll is a "push poll" that intends to persuade voters by presenting negative information to sway voters' opinions.Will Kelley-Kamp (SLOG-The Stranger):
McGinn said he hasn't yet seen results of the poll.
Mike McGinn slams the city's contribution to the tunnel—$930 million—as the Largest Tax Increase in Seattle History. But McGinn's preferred choice, the surface/transit option, would also require similar tax increases. Perhaps the right question to ask McGinn would be: How would you pay for your own plan?Howie P.S.: Check out the comments on both stories.
