Have Bill Will File, Wire Simpson, Covington

Could this headline in the Kitsap Sun online edition hint at an editor's opinion of Rep. Simpson?

Speedway Backers Find a Starting Gun for Hire in Olympia

Supporters of a NASCAR-ready speedway in South Kitsap have a sponsor in the Washington House of Representatives — for a bill that is not expected to specify Kitsap County as the track site.

State Rep. Geoff Simpson, D-Covington, said Friday he would likely introduce a bill that provides state funding to help build a speedway for NASCAR and other races.

In the print edition, the headline was a little more bland: "Speedway Gets a Starting Gun in Legislature." Maybe the person who did the print edition headline realized there is nothing in the article to hint at any "hired gun" status.
