Seattle City Light instructor faces ethics charge

SEATTLE -- The director of the Seattle Ethics Commission says a City Light instructor accepted nine bottles of liquor from apprentices retaking a safety test for utility workers.
The nine workers who did poorly on the first test in 2010 all passed after giving the instructor liquor on the day of the re-test.
Director Wayne Barnett said he'll present the case Wednesday to the Ethics Commission, which could impose a fine up to $5,000.
The Seattle Times reported that the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers intends to contest the allegations because the union contract doesn't specify that members are subject to ethics fines.
