More than 100 Seattle Times news staffers – including reporters, photographers, columnists, artists, editors and online news producers – signed a letter Thursday protesting the Times Co’s decision to sponsor newspaper ads supporting Republican gubernatorial candidate Rob McKenna and a statewide referendum for legalized gay marriage.

The letter, which was delivered to Times Publisher Frank Blethen, said the decision to publish the ad “threatens the two things we value the most, the traits that make The Seattle Times a strong brand: Our independence and credibility.”
