Spokane Mayor Violated Law, Investigator Says

November 20, 2005|From Times Wire Reports

A private investigator hired by the Spokane City Council says Mayor Jim West, who is facing a recall election over a sex scandal, violated the city's Internet policy and state law.

In an 18-page report, Mark Busto concluded that the mayor broke state law by offering a position on the city's Human Rights Commission to a young man he pursued for a sexual relationship.

The mayor has denied any wrongdoing and has not been charged with a crime.
