King County Prosecutor Chris Bayley To Discuss New Book on Police Payoff Corruption

Chris_BayleySometimes it is well to indulge ourselves with some Seattle political history to shed light on the present and the future.

At our June 9 meeting, Chris Bayley, former King County Prosecutor and author of the recently published Seattle Justice: The Rise and Fall of the Police Payoff System in Seattle, will be MDC’s guest.

Bayley will join MDC member Lem Howell to discuss the subject of his book – challenging the tolerance policy corruption scandal involving the City of Seattle and the Seattle Police Department. Allan Munro will moderate the discussion.

We meet at noon to 1:30 pm, Thursday, June 9 at the Plaza 600 Building #205, 600 Stewart St, Seattle. Coffee provided is provided. [photo provided by Joe Mabel]
