Vote for a voice

Former Trump Campaign Chairman Paul Manafort gave a fraudulent financial statement to a bank to borrow money that he could not repay. Manafort stroked the banker’s ego by offering him the position of Secretary of the Army and Manafort got the loan. Later on the banker called the Pentagon requesting national security briefings for his new job and learned that he had been played and plundered.

Manafort’s scheme came straight form the Trump-Republican agenda that plays the electorate just like Manafort played the banker.

Locally, Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers plays the small towns and farmers for their votes but supports the agenda that threatens their markets and livelihood. Sticking to the agenda, she advertises concern for one person with an auto-immune disorder, while driving affordable health care for everyone else into that ditch and our economy into deeper debt. Thanks for the recent visit of California Republican Rep. Devin Nunes, we know that CMR is devoted and obedient to the Trump-Republican agenda and special client donors.

Vote against the agenda and the scheme. Vote for a representative that will represent constituents and the electorate of Eastern Washington. Vote for Lisa Brown and a voice.
