Eye On Olympia

Crosscut and Chopp…

Crosscut’s David Brewster has a good piece today about House Speaker Frank Chopp, a behind-the-scenes dealmaker who has amassed a large Democratic majority while wielding tremendous clout over what bills move and what don’t in Olympia. He describes Chopp as:

a veteran poverty warrior from Fremont Nation, is generally thought to be not just the most powerful speaker in memory but the most powerful political figure in the state. Powerful enough to intimidate both the governor and the barons of the Legislature.
