More reminders of the slimeball that is Tim "The Liar" Leavitt.

It's not particularly rare for immoral politicians who lack a shred of integrity or courage to lie.

But it IS unusual for any to be such complete morons that they'd leave a detailed paper trail of their lies, manipulation and outright perfidy as Tim "The Liar" Leavitt.

These examples were provided by fellow blogger Lew Waters in comments to The Liars response to Sen. Don Benton's appeal to coalesce opposition to the horrific, unneeded and unwanted I-5 Bridge/loot rail project, a project that owns The Liar like the 13th Amendment never existed because, among other things, Leavitt works for a company that can personally benefit from this project.

Here, provided by Lew, are the positions from The Liar's own keyboard (Well, Temple Lentz's keyboard... before she started the Daily Couv, she was shilling and blogging for the despicable Leavitt mayoral campaign) positions that have earned him, like few others, the title: The Liar.

Receiving a copy of an email exchange from La Canter Mayor Jim Irish to Jim Karlock, it seems sarcasm, name calling and continued ignoring of valid concerns has become the order of the day from all of the elected ruling class members that are hellbent on forcing this project off on citizens.

Leavitt is a disgrace to Vancouver.

September 9, 2009 on his blogsite he put up campaigning, he wrote a post "Continuing to stand up for the Residents of Vancouver and Clark County"

He said, "Portland Mayor Sam Adams insisted that from his perspective, no tolls means no project."

"I made it perfectly clear that I have no intention of rolling over on tolls." "Tolling is an extremely regressive tax. Whether one has an income of $10,000 or $100,000, everyone will pay the same toll. To suggest a tolling 'credit' or 'mitigation' for the low-income is simply to admit that tolling is unfair to the working class and those of lesser financial status."

How are we to believe anything else he has to say?

Hey Couve, care to explain what good a job is if the job costs you money?

I hope you aren't holding your breath waiting on local workers to fill up the jobs for the building of that bridge, if and when they ever get around to it.
On August 7, 2009 Tim Leavitt wrote in his blog post "OREGONIAN Editorial Board Out of Touch--Tolls are Unnecessary and Unjust!"

"Who is representing the hard-working families and businesses of the Portland-Metro region, and particularly SW Washington? It's certainly not the Oregonian Editorial Board. It's certainly not local elected officials, like Vancouver's current Mayor, Royce Pollard. Nor are a number of other higher-up elected officials. Nor are transplants from the east coast, who proudly proclaim that tolls are a way of life. Tolls may be a given on the other side of the country, but one of the reasons many of us are here in the west coast is because it's NOT like the east coast!"

"You see, it's quite easy to force an issue onto the public when you don't have to worry about facing that public every day to listen to the hardship and explain why your position just cost jobs, homes and closure of businesses. It's easy to force a matter onto the public when you have only a few months or years left in public office, and then can go into retirement and out of the public eye."

During the entirety of Leavitt's disgraceful campaign, I warned everyone that he was a lying scumbag.

Suddenly, how badly the community is going to get screwed is of no consequence to him.  The Liar wrote:  "To suggest a tolling 'credit' or 'mitigation' for the low-income is simply to admit that tolling is unfair to the working class and those of lesser financial status."
Hate to tell you, couvecitizen, whoever you really are, but i receive no Military pension and I paid into social security all of my adult life too.

That being said, you have been deceived to believe "Tolls are a way of life now."

How "BRAZEN" and delusional of you tell me, "So brazen of you to claim to be sticking up for hard-working citizens when your "hard work" is cruising the blogs and making negative statements about people who are out there actually trying to get work done," after I spent 44 years as a blue collar worker doing physical labor all of my life to provide not only for my own family, but paying taxes that might have paid your food stamps at one time.

How fast you people today are to give up the very freedoms "old-timer's" like me fought for you to have.

If moving into the 21st century means giving up on my freedoms to be controlled by a ruling class, I'll stay behind.

Returning to Tim Leavitt's campaign platform, July 27, 2009 he wrote in his post, "How to Pay for a New Bridge without Breaking the Backs of Vancouver's Working Class."

"Our current leadership has failed to create good, new jobs locally--forcing our citizens to cross the river to earn a decent wage, for the dubious privilege of paying Oregon income tax. And now, after this failure, that same incumbent leadership is saying that we need to just "accept it," and "get over it." and prepare to pay tolls."

"I submit that tolls are not a foregone conclusion, and this project can be done without detrimental financial impact to our hard-working families, employers or seniors on fixed incomes."

On September 14, 2009 he wrote in "Tolling is NOT the Only Answer!"

"In the Editorial section of the September 9 Columbian, Tom Koenninger writes that tolls on the new I-5 crossing are a foregone conclusion, and insinuates that anyone who claims otherwise is a fool or a liar."

"Indeed, since Mr. Koenninger and the current Mayor of Vancouver, among others, have been stubbornly trying to force tolls onto our community for years now, one can hardly expect that they'd suddenly come to their senses."

"It's because of this hard-headed refusal to do what is right for our community, and to defend the very people who need it most, that I am running for Mayor. Our community really does deserve better ideas, better leadership, and a stronger commitment to our citizens."

Is that your idea of "moving into the 21st century," lying to get into office? No thanks, I'll stay mired in the 20th if the 21st has to be so dishonest.

He doesn't seem to give a damn about that now, does he?

His flip on the tolling issue, his positions confirmed above, proved me to be right.

If he had any integrity, the lying little weasel would resign. He doesn't, of course, so he won't.

I feel the need to take a wash my hands every time I write about this guy.
