Spokane Stuck w/Bundy Buddy Shea

Today I’d like to make an endorsement. And that is to return Matt Shea. Um, not to office. I realize the Republican representative for Washington’s Legislative District 4 is up for re-election this year, but I don’t make political endorsements. When I say return Matt Shea, I mean return him … To Nevada. Really. This loose cannon is too embarrassing to be representing the Spokane area anymore. Let him go back to Cliven Bundy’s braying cattle cause where Shea was riding so tall in the saddle the other day. It won’t happen, I know. Now that Bundy has outed himself as a doltish bigot, Shea is doing a backstroke worthy of Michael Phelps. Cattle rancher? What cattle rancher?/Doug Clark, SR. More here.

  • Note: Shea was a guest speaker at a rally of the radical Oath Keepers at the Kootenai County Fairgrounds earlier this month, along with Sen. Steve Vick, Sen. Bob Nonini and Rep. Vito Barbieri.

Question: Do you think Shea would be welcome with open arms as a legislator by uberconservative Legislative District 2 (Hayden, Rathdrum, and the north end of the county)?
