Flaherty-Hummel Debate at the Redmond Patriots


The two participated in their second public debate before the Redmond Patriots Monday night.

 

D.A. Flaherty told the audience he's had a successful run the last three and a half years.

 

"During my administration we've had unprecedented success.  We've tried one aggravated murder cases and four murder trial.  The number of cases in unprecedented.  We've moved cases through quickly.  And we have one conviction for aggravated murder and three convictions for murder.  You can't get any better than that."

 

Flaherty accused Hummel of using the D.A.'s office as a stepping stone to other political offices and Hummel charged Flaherty with running a dysfunctional office that has cost the community more than one million dollars in lost lawsuits.

 

The debate questions came from the Redmond Patriot members.  One criticized Hummel's work in Liberia, when he worked for former President Jimmy Carter.

 

"And you know I worked for President Carter and I think he's one of our most successful former Presidents.  I'm very proud of the peace, justice and help he's delivered around the world.  I also worked for George W. Bush in the executive office for the trade representative.  So that says a lot about me.  I look at the job, not the label."

 

The two will face off at another debate before the League of Women Voters on April 15th.
