Two weeks ago, mayoral candidate Charlie Hales fired six members of his campaign staff. As WW reported, he rewarded them for a first-place finish in the primary election with a parting gift of autographed photos of himself posing with each staffer.

Now five of the six are posing for photos of their own. The staffers, including former campaign manager Jessica Moskovitz, are shown on Facebook cheekily wielding baseball bats at a party one of them later dubbed "Dinner of the Damned."

In what WW cannot confirm was intended as an ironic touch, the dinner was held on the other side the Columbia River.  Hales inhabited Stevenson, Wash. for six years after leaving City Hall. The dinner was held in Vancouver.
