Susan Hutchison is a former news anchor at KIRO-TV in Seattle.
There’s some drama in her life, but what’s relevant here is that she’s running for King County executive (similar to a mayor).
Mountain Humanist noticed something odd in her bio, though.
Since leaving KIRO Hutchison has been very, very busy. She has her own consulting business. She is the executive director for the Charles Simonyi Fund for the arts and sciences which among other things, supports the work of atheist Richard Dawkins. She’s also served on the board of the Discovery Institute, which promotes the idea of intelligent design…
So Hutchison directs the program that funds Richard Dawkins‘ former post at the University of Oxford… and she supports the Seattle-based Discovery Institute, which actively tries to discredit the science that Dawkins spends his life advocating?
That’s like being on the boards of both Planned Parenthood and Focus on the Family.
Which side is she on when it comes to good science: Is she for it or against it?
