@41 No, you're part of the problem. Perhaps you'd be happier in Texas with the rest of your business-loving, regressive-tax-humping, Republican friends.

@37 Duh. Everybody knows that Fnarf is 100% wrong 100% of the time. If anybody listens to him, they might as well be listening to Bailo or Seattleblues or Will in Seattle. Because, Fnarf spreads as much disinformation as any of them.

The real problem is that the Republican held senate has been held for all of 2 years. TWO. Before that, we had a democratic house, senate and governor. Yet, we still passed regressive, corporate friendly, bills that lowered taxes for businesses while pondering why we had a shortage of funding.

Chopp has been Speaker of the House while we gave billions in tax credits to Boeing as they shuttle engineering jobs out of state. He was speaker while Microsoft fought for tax credits. He's been speaker as rents in his 43rd district blew up, and he hasn't done jack shit to protect us (he claims he's for rent control, but has he presented a bill to make it legal? Or is he talking out his ass again?). He was speaker when he made it tough for workers to collect unemployment while simultaneously lowering taxes for businesses.

Chopp is a corporate friendly asshole who is the exact reason I voted against him.

@52 The same Payday loan law which still allows for triple digit rates of return, but merely stopped the cycle from perpetuating itself? The one that basically said "no, what they're doing is not loan sharking? Of course it went national. It didn't even target predatory behaviors.

The same ineffective Foreclosure Fairness Act that did little to protect lenders if they were already a little behind?

Chopp is the King of toothless legislature. Under his watch, democrats have passed corporate friendly feel good measures time and again.

He has presided over, and voted for, constant tax break legislation for 14 years, and has continually overseen the cutting of workers rights and even encouraged unions to vote against their self-interest.

@30 And what has progressive things has Chopp negotiated for in the past decade?

@2 That's what I read too. She made it clear she wanted it to stop, and he didn't stop, even though he heard her. And, that's by HIS own recollection.

The story is that much fucked up.

One could argue that she started it, and thus bears a little bit of responsibility...but she communicated stop clearly enough that he heard it, and he didn't. I don't care what the reason is, he should have stopped.

I suspect that she may have wanted it if it was just general PIV sex, but as soon as it went anal, she didn't want it and it became rape. Which is still rape. And it's not a night of sex that became regret afterwards.
Jul 23 TheMisanthrope commented on Don't Listen to the SECB—Vote for Jess Spear.
@97 See @98. His district isn't some light blue anomaly in a see of deep blue. His district is deep blue, regardless of how rich they've become.

Regardless, what you say is basically acknowledging that I and other anti-Chopp advocates are correct, in that Chopp has gotten more conservative and in line with big business policies. Instead of the progressives moving to districts with more progressive representation, progressives should stay where they are and vote in a truly progressive candidate, and oust the one that's merely a DINO.
Jul 23 TheMisanthrope commented on Don't Listen to the SECB—Vote for Jess Spear.
@79 Spear has very few credentials, but Chopp has lost any credibility to claims of progressiveness.

He's been a conservative force for the past decade, leading the vote time and again for big business tax cuts and putting pressure on labor unions.

Fuck Frank Chopp. He's a DINO.
