Prosecutor's deputy asks lawyers to endorse boss

Prosecutor's deputy asks lawyers to endorse boss, Seattle P-I, June 25, 2007.

Dan Satterberg, the acting King County prosecuting attorney, has promised to keep his office out of politics by explicitly barring his 250-lawyer staff from contributing money or endorsements to his election campaign.

But that, in his lawyerly interpretation, doesn't prevent one of his top deputies from aggressively seeking political endorsements for Satterberg from a long list of the county's most prominent lawyers and law firms. They include many who do work -- some in the millions of dollars -- for the prosecutor's office.
