GOP Spent $63,000 On Spokane Race

Washington State Republican Party poured at least $63,000 into the campaign of victorious Spokane mayoral candidate David Condon in the closing days of the race, helping to defeat incumbent Mary Verner. Although the office is non-partisan, Condon has extensive ties to GOP politicians, while Verner has ties to Democrats. Verner is crying foul about the big contributions from the GOP, calling them a "turning point" for local politics in the state's second largest city/KXLY. More here.

Question: Can you blame Spokane Mayor Mary Verner from crying, "Foul"?
