I have further confirmation on the story I reported on Friday about King County Executive Ron Sims taking a job with the Obama administration in HUD.
And apparently, the delay is this: The Obama administration wants to do a housing policy roll out where they also announce new staff appointments. I could not get confirmation on the timing.
Sims' office did not return my calls on Friday. I have another call into them now.
I just talked to Sims spokeswoman Natasha Jones. She says the story is not true. "Nothing's changed," she said, referring to the denials her office issued on Friday. She reports that she talked to Sims this morning, and says he said, "I don't know where they're getting that. I'm focused on King County, and everybody else should be too."
