When he was a King County councilman, Republican Rob McKenna may have run afoul of ethics laws designed to prevent elected officials from using government property for political purposes. The AP:
Stories about ethics issues are headaches for candidates, but there is a spectrum ranging from the most damaging kind of story (Claire McCaskill's plane controversy, for example) to the least. At first glance, this does not look that serious, but it's not great, either. Expect Democrats to make hay over it. McKenna doesn't have the reputation of a pol who tries consistently to skirt the rules, but there are plenty of operatives who would like to change that.
