May 16 RDPence commented on Lorena González Is Not Running for Mayor.
She had to give up her council seat to run for mayor, and with no clear path (or even potential path) to victory, she would've been out of office next January. This was a decision that made itself.
May 12 RDPence commented on State Representative Jessyn Farrell Is Running for Mayor.
As a sitting state legislator, she's forbidden by law from raising campaign funds while the Legislature is in session -- which this year could run into July, right up to the Aug. 1 primary election. Sen. Bob Hasagawa has the same problem. The only workaround is to resign their seats in the Legislature, which I suspect neither will do.
Mar 28 RDPence commented on Democrats Want to Make Sure You Definitely Don't Forget that Dave Reichert Voted for Trumpcare.
Democrats have never run a great candidate against Reichert. No more flakes or political unknowns please. Time to get serious about the 8th CD.
Mar 20 RDPence commented on Today in Hard-Hitting Investigative Journalism: Is that Beer Really a Pint?.
Anyone deliberately selling Pints that are less than 16 ounces is committing consumer fraud. We don't need a new law or ordinance to say that a Pint is 16 ounces; it already is.
Mar 19 RDPence commented on A Ride the Ducks Truck Smashes Into Yet Another Car.
Revoke the Ducks operating permit. Immediately.
Mar 7 RDPence commented on New CIA Leak Reveals that Wikileaks Could Be a Department of the KGB.
You're just now figuring this out? Obvious for a year now; Wikileaks is a subsidiary of the Russian government.
Mar 3 RDPence commented on Teatro ZinZanni's Last-Ditch Efforts to Stay in Their Space Have Failed, and Their March 5 Show Will Be Their Last.
Casting blame on Seattle Opera is lame and sad. From the beginning, Teatro ZinZanni knew the deal they were in, and they failed to adequately plan ahead. Perhaps failure was inevitable, but it's still not Seattle Opera's fault.
Mar 2 RDPence commented on The Morning News: Top Swedish Neurosurgeon Resigns, Family of Hanged Muslim Teen Requests FBI Investigation.
The mayor is proposing a tax of $1.35 on a 2-liter bottle of soda.
Feb 28 RDPence commented on All Washington State Republicans Voted Against Requesting Trump's Tax Returns.
There's no separating Donald Trump from our four Republican members of Congress. Come election day, they will have to answer for their blind support of the Trump agenda.
Feb 27 RDPence commented on Over ACLU Objections, Seattle Moves Forward with Police Body Cameras.
I still can't imagine a witness to a serious crime giving a statement to police while being recorded by a police bodycam. Not when the perp's family can get that same video via public disclosure request.
