CMR supporting dark side of humanity

Yesterday, I was driving to do errands in Spokane. I noticed the “Dave Wilson for Congress” campaign sign which I placed over three months ago on the hillside at the start of Cheney Spokane Road was taken down. The sign had been pulled off a bent metal frame and was laying flat on the ground. Next to it was a newly placed, large Cathy McMorris Rodgers sign. This is not the first time I’ve seen Dave Wilson’s signs damaged with a new McMorris Rodgers sign being placed near it or in front of Dave’s sign.

For me, I respect all the campaign signs even if I don’t agree with the candidate’s philosophy as it is our first amendment right of free speech. Why is McMorris Rodgers supporting the violation of that right?

On the drive to reach Cheney Spokane Road there are two billboard sized “Trump” signs with a nearby beater truck flying a huge Confederate flag. I think KKK, Neo-Nazi or, in my opinion, racists. Cathy supports Trump, a man who invites an equally corrupt Putin in Russia to attack another American citizen who has dedicated her life to public service. Is McMorris Rodgers supporting the “dark” side of humanity?
