Gloves off, McGinn, Mallahan fight about tunnel, 'trust'---In a caustic, televised showdown Wednesday, mayoral candidates Joe Mallahan and Mike McGinn debated the merits of the Alaskan Way Viaduct tunnel replacement - with Mallahan saying he didn't trust McGinn to really move forward with the project and McGinn countering that Mallahan's campaign is being paid for by corporations that will get rich from the tunnel and that he's taking cues from state lawmakers who voted to saddle Seattle taxpayers with cost overruns.
