The Huling scandal just gets uglier

Yet more details in a long investigative Times article today, suggesting criminal and unethical activity among employees at Huling went far beyond the infamous case that broke wide open last month. (Last part of the story says the new owners “will not try to undo the sale” but are accelerating the sign-changing process, though we haven’t seen anything new since what we posted two weeks ago.)

    Dillard was making $200k a year? Hold me back because I would like to use the four-letter word here.

    Huling Brothers has been known for decades as a good place to do business. And I think this is proven by the family wanting to stand by their name. Repaying the man who was cheated even though the business is no longer theirs was a stand up thing to do.

    West Seattle still retains so much that makes it a great neighborhood. The Huling are truly good neighbors.

    I once sold a real lemon to Huling Brothers. I believe they thought they were getting a great deal. Car was a one vehicle demolition derby.
    Drove down I-5 and pieces would fly off. They were so fixated on the exterior of the vehicle that they never checked out the crappy engine and failing electronic componants. I played the dumb woman for all it was worth. Took that check and raced to the bank and cashed it.

    $200,000 for 32 year old drug addict with a checkered past? Apparently I’ve made some wrong choices in my life.

    Thanks for linking this article, I saw it in the headlines in the morning and meant to read it at work, but then forgot about it. This is another reason why I appreciate this site.
