Diana McGinness

A candidate for U.S. Representative, Congressional District 2 in the 2010 Washington Primary Election

Party: Democrat

On this race:

Elected Experience: No information submitted

Other Professional Experience: Diana, a retired fraud investigator, uncovered accident fraud rings, medical mills billing for services not rendered, diagnostic firms billing improperly, identity/credit card theft, and more.

Education: Attended Southern Illinois University

Community Service: Upon retirement, she and a friend created a website,, to educate the public and assist those defrauded. Diana was recognized for her efforts in the creation of the OIC Criminal Fraud Investigative Unit.

Statement: Big business has run amok and, unchecked, will continue to buy our government, exploit our financial system, destroy our environment, send our jobs overseas, demand our legislators support perpetual war and continue to deny us affordable health care.

We've seen the results of bank bailouts that have done little for Main Street; health care reform and financial reform - neither providing the needed reform. We can no longer allow huge corporations to privatize profits and socialize liabilities.

We must end "business as usual" by voting for a legislator who supports lower interest rates, bank regulation, net neutrality, bankruptcy reform to reduce foreclosures and is against yet more estate tax exemptions for the wealthiest amongst us. By sending strong, dedicated and ethical people to Congress we can and will put our country back on track for peace and prosperity.

I am a retired fraud investigator who understands the meaning of ethics, who is dedicated to fighting fraud, waste and abuse in government and in businesses who work for government. Corporate personhood must be abolished, and we must cut the ties between our legislators and corporate campaign contributions. Not only will important fundamental reform be impossible, but the appearance of corporate owned legislators, whether true or not, is destroying our trust in government.     As your Congresswoman, I will work with like-minded legislators to bring our troops home, to rebuild our middle class, to make education affordable, to provide affordable health care for all, to reduce the debt, to enforce or renegotiate our trade treaties, to rebuild our infrastructure and incentivize the creation of green energy jobs, and to help small businesses rebuild.

All across America, people are demanding honest government, one seat at a time. I am asking for your vote as Representative of the 2nd Congressional District. Thank you.
