But Seattle Times reporter Jim Brunner interviewed McKenna last night and got this:
In an interview before the King County GOP's Lincoln Day dinner in Bellevue Wednesday night, McKenna said he would not replicate Walker's attempt to undo collective bargaining rights.
"Collective bargaining is a right. It's not the problem. The problem is politicians who give away too much at the bargaining table," McKenna said.
If he does get elected governor, McKenna said he'd work with unions, rather than "terrorizing them."
There's no question McKenna is aligned with business in the business/labor divide. David Goldstein, aka Goldy, rounded up McKenna's anti-union record in a recent piece for the Stranger citing McKenna's votes as a King County Council Member against union contracts and McKenna's successful argument before the U.S. Supreme Court as AG to prevent teachers' union dues from going to political purposes.
A note to Goldy, though: You work for a newspaper now (not your Democratic party blog), you're supposed to talk to the subjects of your stories. Sorta like Brunner did.
