If you look in the Washington State Public Disclosure Commission database for the PAC listed on the flier above, you find something called:

PROGRESSIVE CONSERVATIVE COALITION PAC SPONSORED BY MARCUS CHARLES

Its biggest donor is the conservative-leaning Washington Restaurant Association—which is in for $2,000—but it also has $100 donations from Deanne Calvert, Phil Calvert, Rollin Fatland, Pete Hanning, and Denise Passinetti.

I have a call in to the only Marcus Charles I know of to see if he can shed any light on this lobbying for split tickets in the heart of Inslee-Obamaland.

UPDATE: Marcus Charles—the guy who started Marcus’ Martini Heaven, the Bad Juju, and Neumo's, and who resurrected the Crocodile—tells me that this is indeed his PAC.

Support The Stranger

"Yeah, I’m that Marcus Charles," he writes. "I’m willing to talk about my reasons behind supporting Obama, McKenna and R74 if you want."

I'll do another post as soon as we connect.
