Washington state is known for its apples – but Gov. J. Inlee did not apologize last week for doing the popular fruit in favor of any public relations.
Democrats, in an effort to bring comfort to communities in eastern Washington, were recently devastated by unknowingly and illegally gifted baskets from their orchard in Olympia, which were later found to be infected with Apple maggot larvae.
Thurston County, where Inslee lives, is an apple maggot quarantine area – making it illegal for Inslee to bring homegrown apples from that area to a non-quarantine area like Douglas County according to Q13 FOX in Seattle.
The governor expressed regret in a statement.
“Trudy last week [Inslee’s wife] “I wanted to express comfort to the communities suffering from the devastating fire,” said Inslee. We regret this mistake. This is a good reminder of the importance of awareness around apple quarantine. We appreciate the efforts of the Washington State Department of Agriculture to help recover these apples and we are assisting to help do so. ”
