MADness in Everett - UPDATE!

Or maybe I should call this an Oops-date: The organizer of todays anti-immigrant forum in Everett is accused of having sticky fingers!

Candidate decries charge against her

A candidate for Everett City Council and active foe of illegal immigration was charged with theft after walking from a Quality Food Center (QFC) into an adjoining Starbucks with unpaid merchandise in hand.

Shawna Forde, founder of Minutemen American Defense, a local group affiliated with the national Minuteman Project, said Friday that the charges filed against her in February are "ridiculous." ...

... Forde was charged with theft, according to court documents. She has pleaded not guilty.

Everett's city attorney will not handle the case and has requested that Mount Vernon's city attorney take over, according to court documents. ...(source)

It's not on a par with questions being asked Jim Gilchrist about $750,000 missing from Minuteman Project accounts, but it's a start... Way to go MAD woman Shawna Forde!
