Description

Throughout 2015, in more than 50 news stories and editorials, The News Tribune chronicled the saga of Pierce County prosecutor Mark Lindquist, the county's most powerful lawyer. Lindquist, elected as a minister of justice, sees himself as a politician first. Justice matters less to him. He aspires to higher office and pop-culture stardom. The News Tribune's stories included deep investigations, breaking coverage and editorials, all describing Lindquist's efforts to consolidate political power and evade accountability despite multiple adverse legal findings, investigations and accusations of legal misconduct.
