Cathy McMorris Rodgers and the local GOP continue their downward spiral by bringing to Spokane and defending those dedicated to destroying our democracy. Last September, far-right British politician Nigel Farage was invited to Spokane directly after campaigning for Roy Moore in Alabama alongside Steve Bannon, both true alt-right folks. Farage is now a “person of interest” in the Trump-Russia investigation.
Then we had the James Allsup event at the NW Grassroots meeting, a group of folks that included the Spokane GOP Chair (who has since resigned). Then CMR brought Devin Nunes to Spokane … a true Trump loyalist as proven by his tape explaining events necessary to stop Robert Mueller. And now CMR is bringing Kellyanne Conway, another Trump loyalist, here for a fundraiser. She was found guilty of violating the federal Hatch Act two times.
All these people have one thing in common: Stretching the limits of democracy, of truth, of lawful behaviors. What is a moderate Republican, true to the traditional values of the party to do? In this case, you must vote for Lisa Brown. The facts are evident: CMR and her team of supporters are not good for our district, our state or our nation.
