A judge in Spokane stopped the city’s release of 3,300 pictures of men found on the city hall computer used by Mayor Jim West. Judge Richard Miller said the material was clearly a public record but expressed concern for the privacy of the men pictured. He did order release of the mayor’s “index of usage,” which will include the addresses of Web sites he visited. The Spokesman-Review reported earlier that the mayor had used his city hall computer and office to solicit underage male companions. The mayor faces a recall election Dec. 6. (11/19/05)
