    Great thread, but it's not quite what I had in mind. Maybe I'm off base on this anyway, but is there any way to have criminal charges filed against him for KNOWINGLY enacting a rule that violates both the RCW and the State Constitution?

    Well there's always RCW 9.41.810.

    RCW 9.41.810
    Penalty.

    Any violation of any provision of this chapter, except as otherwise provided, shall be a misdemeanor and punishable accordingly.
    Provisions of the chapter include state preemption. What Nickels is doing is a misdemeanor crime.

    Maybe, after the SAF case, we can do this. It's a thought.
