I've recently learned through back channels (two sources, both anonymous) that perennial ballot measure racketeer Bill Sizemore has been given the kiss off by his two main benefactors: Loren Parks and Dick Wendt.
Sizemore had been hired to do "consulting" (whatever that means) through what Jeff Mapes called a Wendt funded think tank known as Hire Calling. More on that entity from Becky at Preemptive Karma here.
The scuttle (read: rumor) is that Wendt has fired Sizemore and that Bill is relocating to Redmond.
And what of Loren Parks? Emails exchanged between Parks and Sizemore apparently indicate in no uncertain terms that Parks will no longer be cutting checks for Sizemore's activities.
In related news, Sizemore is scheduled today for a mid-afternoon appearance in Judge Wilson's courtroom at Multnomah County Courthouse. Stay tuned.
