In his 01/26/05 Memorandum to the Superior Court of Thurston County on the Recall, Attorney General Rob McKenna said:

” After the filing of this petition with the Court, the Attorney General has no further statutory duties in this matter and does not become an advocate for either side in the recall matter.”

Though the Attorney General’s Office has no further statutory duties in this matter and does not become an advocate for either side in the recall matter, Assistant Attorney General Jeffrey T. Even filed a NOTICE OF APPEARANCE with the court on 01/31/05, entering his appearance on behalf of SAM REED, Secretary of State, in this Recall action.

On 02/01/05, the Thurston County Superior Court, which had previously scheduled the hearing for Friday 02/04/05, based on the request from the Attorney General’s Office for Legislative Priority, informed the Sam Recall Reed Group the hearing was rescheduled from Friday 02/04 to Monday 02/7/05.

The new hearing will be held in Thurston County Superior Court on Monday February 7, 2005, at 9AM, before Judge Chris Wickham. Thurston County Superior Court is located at 2000 Lakeridge Drive SW in Olympa, WA./, Clerk Betty J. Gould, Telephone (360) 786-5549, email:

In the 2004 Online Voters' Guide, Secretary of State pledged: “My office is replacing hanging chads and punch cards with safe and secure voting equipment. Together, we’ve registered nearly 300,000 new voters. Following the Florida debacle in 2000 and new federal mandates, experience is more critical than ever for the Secretary of State. Sam Reed said “My 20-plus years of knowledge and expertise will ensure that every vote is counted correctly.”

The Recall Sam Reed Group filed a a 61-page “Supporting Affidavit and Declaration’ with The Superior Court of Washington for Grant County on Tuesday 02/01/04 in the Clerk’s Office, at 2000 Lakeridge Drive SW, Building 2, Olympia, WA.

“Sam Reed’s acts and actions cited in this petition cannot reasonably be viewed as anything except the willful neglect or failure by Sam Reed to faithfully perform his duties imposed by law,” said Linda Jordan, spokeswoman for the Recall Sam Reed effort.

The group has also posted a Recall Sam Reed Petition on the Internet at: Only registered, legal, and “alive” voters are allowed to register their support at the site.
