I asked for a few minutes to show the KING5 coverage of the Stuth story to the Senate Republican Caucus. Many of our members do not live in the Seattle television market so did not see the drama of the reunion of Doug and Annmarie Stuth and their granddaughter. CPS abuse is an important issue and everyone was very attentive.
I was given enough time to expand upon the story. Some chimed in with their stories. Remember, everyone who has been in the legislature for any length of time has had some horror case from the department.
In the end I was given a rare ovation, a nice compliment for the work done.
