Fred Walser Fails to Keep Confidences

| | Comments (0)

In our latest descent into the public record of Fred Walser, we look at the fact that Walser has displayed a pattern of not keeping confidences as part of his official capacity as a public servant.

He has on multiple occasions released information to department personnel -- both at the Washington State Patrol, and at the Sultan Police Department -- about investigations being done of them, and twice -- within about a year -- released information to the media that were prejudicial to criminal cases.

Any elected official must be able to keep confidences to do their job. Walser has shown on multiple occasions over many years, and leading up to the incident that resulted in his criminal conviction and one-year jail sentence this June, that he is sometimes either incapable or unwilling to do so.
