After the vote came in last night, Spokane Mary Verner saw that she might not be re-elected. The initial tally — which represents more than half the ballots cast — showed her down 47 percent to David Condon's 52 percent.
Soon thereafter, she got on the phone with conservative radio host Mike Fitzsimmons to discuss the returns.
The conversation quickly turned to accusations of "spreading misinformation" and disappointment in each other.
After a heated three minutes, Verner said goodbye.
"She doesn't get it," Fitzsimmons said. "That's her problem."
