Pakootas will work for you

Cathy McMorris Rodgers voted twice against the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act and the Paycheck Fairness Act in 2009. That same year she voted against the Violence Against Women Act. She has voted with the Republican Party on all legislation. Look at her voting record. Now, she has endorsed Donald Trump who is also the preferred candidate of white supremacists and foreign dictators.

Trump quite obviously does not possess the temperament, qualifications, experience or fitness for the office of president. This calls into question and deep concern as to Cathy’s own judgment, ability, commitment and desire to act on the best interests of her constituents.

Right here in her claimed home town of Kettle Falls, her support has taken a huge hit. Only 20 people showed up at her town hall meeting. What does that tell you? Unlike McMorris Rodgers, Joe Pakootas actually was born and raised in the 5th district. He’s lived and worked here all his life. He knows our needs and our concerns and he’s fought for them. He has no PACs paying for his ads. It’s the many of us who know and believe in him. Joe’s not owned by anybody, he’ll work for us.
