More Lies from Karen Keiser and the Democrats for Fred Walser
The Senate Democrats have put out another mailer lying about Senator Val Stevens.
They also gave Walser another $10,000 in cash, so they've funded 39 percent of his campaign, not including whatever money was spent on this mailing.
The mailings were sent by a brand-new PAC called "Better Future for Washington," fully funded by the Senate Demoractic Campaign Committee's Roosevelt Fund, to the tune of $100,000 even. Yet no expenditures have been reported yet, even though the law requires that a postal mail ad that identifies a candidate, appears within 60 days of the election, and costs $5,000 or more must be reported electronically within 24 hours. Unless they somehow kept the cost to under $5,000 -- which is very unlikely -- they are in violation.
Regardless, SDCC chair Karen Keiser (D-33) and her committee have completely lost it. The majority of Democratic Senators can't want to see their money and their name going to waste by supporting a criminal like Fred Walser, let alone being used to spread terrible lies about a Republican colleague.

1. Not to worry. Cornfield is all over this and will shame the SDCC.
2. You think so?
3. Anyone who wants to contact: "Better Future for Washington", they can at: firstname.lastname@example.org or 206-325-5013. Let them know what you think.
No. 2, no.
But, those mailers are so over the top, I doubt it affects any votes. And more money on Walser means less money on other races.
The Ds really, really need to get a party message and the Ds should be spending money to sell that. But, as we all know, there is no message.
Just to show that I don't automatically knee jerk in my disagreements with Pudge - I did watch the video, and Stevens DID NOT compare PMS with domestic violence.
She just said that asking a women a question only once risks an answer that is a lie because the question might have been asked while the women is experiencing PMS.
The democrats would have perhaps locked up the women vote quoting her verbatim, while losing the male vote at the same time :) thereby winning on demographics...
I was wrong. Cornfield was all over it.
Cornfield, though, made sure we knew it was a misdemeanor, but forgot to mention the one year deferred sentence.
Walser has a face made for radio. No way is that a mailer a positive- that is either one.
