They had changed the rules because of a previous lawsuit (which, at this point in time, Metro cannot really afford). Taking the time to review the requested advertising covered their tushes. No one here doubted that all would be taken care of. The original post was written by a conservative political op-ed individual.

They were probably too cautious but since the ad had a link to a website ending ".org", I can see why they did this.

FYI, Metro is run by King County NOT the City of Seattle. Two separate entities. Just sayin'....
