Deschutes County Commissioners 

This week's WTF comes courtesy of the Deschutes County Commissioners who decided in July to perpetuate the ongoing pissing match with Deschutes County District Attorney Patrick Flaherty. Working through their contracted attorneys, county commissioners filed what amounted to a plea to oust the embattled Flaherty who is the subject of anonymous bar complaint over his handling of a grand jury investigation last year.

Of course, this is only the tip of proverbial iceberg when it comes to the long-running standoff between commissioners and Flaherty. And if you can keep track of all the moving parts, you either have a flow chart in the living room, or you're a candidate for Mensa, because even we can't keep this tiff straight anymore. What we do know is that the $52K and counting that commissioners have spent to retain the services of Eugene attorney, and former University of Oregon president, Dave Frohnmayer are difficult to justify - no matter what you think of Flaherty. At a time of reduced services and double-digit unemployment, do commissioners really believe this is the best use of taxpayer dollars?
