Apparently Roger Goodman doesn’t think that the laws that he works in the legislature to pass and that he swears an oath to uphold really apply to him.  Roger’s view of how the law applies to him and to everyone else is a matter of public record.

“As a legislator, he makes DUI laws and then violates those same laws that he has enacted. He has repeatedly said over the years that he can ‘break the rules of life’ as those rules ‘only apply to other people’ and not to him.”

Goodman Timeline1

Maybe that is why Representative Goodman didn’t think the rules of life (including the laws of Washington State) applied to him when he would get high on marijuana and drive his children in the car, even before marijuana was legal in Washington. (Note to Roger Goodman: even with pot legalization it is still illegal to drive under the influence).  Maybe that also the reason he didn’t see a need to file his income taxes or pay his tax bills? Maybe that is the reason he didn’t see anything wrong with using his password protected government computer to access adult (pornographic) websites while he was Executive Director of the Washington State Sentencing Guidelines Commission?

Do we really want a legislator who passes laws that he doesn’t believe apply to him?

Washington State Auditor’s Report Revealed More Than Just Porn On Roger Goodman’s Government Computer

You would think that it was bad enough that the Washington State Auditor found that sexually explicit adult websites had been accessed by Roger Goodman’s password-protected government computer while he was the Executive Director of the Washington State Sentencing Guidelines Commission.  In that report, Roger Goodman did admit receiving inappropriate material from one source (and then erasing it from his computer); as he typically does with embarrassing facts, he denied knowing about the other internet porn sites that had been accessed using his government computer. But in addition to the internet porn, Roger Goodman had a number of other violations of state law that were identified by the Washington State Auditor.

Taken directly from the State Auditor’s Whistle Blower Report (No. 00-052):

“We conclude the Executive Director violated state law by using a state-assigned cellular telephone and the SCAN telephone system to make personal telephone calls”.

“We have determined there is reasonable cause to believe there has been a violation of state law”.

 “The Executive Director of the Sentencing Guidelines Commission is submitting requests for travel expenses that were not incurred”.

“We have determined there is reasonable cause to believe there has been a violation of state law”.

 “The hard drive of the state-owned computer assigned to the Executive Director reflected that Internet sites related to sexually explicit material also were visited. During our investigation, the Executive Director submitted a memorandum to us admitting some use of the state-owned computer for personal purposes…”

“We have determined there is reasonable cause to believe there has been a violation of state law”.

Not surprisingly, the State Auditor also noted…

 “The Executive Director resigned from the Sentencing Guidelines Commission prior to the issuance of this report”.

Roger Goodman regularly touts his experience at the Washington Sentencing Guidelines Commission as one of his accomplishments. It is truly ironic.

Would you let your kid get in the car with Roger Goodman?

It is a legitimate question to ask.  For all the defenders of Roger Goodman out there who refuse to respond to the allegations that continually swirl around their candidate but instead simply attack the messengers“Would you let your kid get in the car with Roger Goodman?”  We look forward to seeing how many of Roger’s supporters would actually be willing to put their children’s safety where their mouth is.  We welcome comments from those of Roger’s supporters that are willing to sign up below.

Roger denies the allegations? It’s not the first time…

Roger at computerIn the KOMO 4 story last week Roger Goodman “denied the allegations” made in our TV ad where we informed voters that he drives stoned with kids in the car, didn’t file income taxes and was taken to court to force him to pay delinquent child support.

This isn’t the first time Roger has “denied allegations” to cover up embarrassing facts. Read the Seattle Times article that talks about how Roger resigned under a cloud of suspicion from his job at the Sentencing Guidelines Commission that he brags about on his resume.

From the Times article: “Goodman conceded personal use of his computer, but claimed other employees using his password were responsible for visits to adult Web sites linked to his computer.”

Really Roger? Someone snuck into the boss’s office (yours), logged into your computer when you were gone, used your password and looked at porn on a government computer…in a government building?

Shifting blame to cover up an embarrassing fact will not change that fact.

Roger Goodman…is NOT a “good man.”

Roger Only Thinks of Himself, Marijuana and his Political Campains

Back in 2012, Roger Goodman (D-Kirkland) had hoped that he could keep a lid on parts of his life that he’d managed to keep secret for years.  He’d hoped that he could stall his divorce until after the election in November. With some help from his political supporters he was able to keep a lid on many of the details, which did not fully surface until months later.  Now that the truth has finally come out about Representative Roger Goodman, a truth that he had hoped Voters in Washington’s 45th Legislative District (Kirkland, Redmond, Woodinville, Sammamish, Duvall, Carnation) would never hear about.  And though Roger Goodman has stated that he believes that the laws that apply to other people don’t apply to him, the truth about Roger Goodman is a matter of public record – and it’s not pretty.  Whatever Roger Goodman may say in his speeches and slick advertising, the reality is something quite different. Although there may be some debate over whether Roger Goodman is a good legislator or not, it is pretty clear from his court records that he is not a good man.

Over the course of the next few weeks, we will be posting excerpts of court documents that have been seen by very few people until now.  Court documents that paint a sad picture of a man who doesn’t think the laws that apply to the rest of us apply to him, which allows him to rationalize his drug use, driving his kids around in the car while high on marijuana, not paying his income taxes and child support, among others.  Roger Goodman has taken a few round the world trips to “find himself” before, maybe now is time for Roger to go do that again.
