Don’t let DelBene buy this election

Suzan DelBene put $1,901,740 of her own money into her primary race in order to defeat a handful of other Democrats. She has put an additional $500,000 into the general election campaign and will probably put millions more in for TV adds.

Dennis Redmon, a 29-year employee of the Department of Revenue, reports that during DelBene’s tenure at DOR a $2 million tax bill for a private jet was held up for “political reasons” until it was past the statute of limitations and Washington state was unable to collect. This profile fits a wealthy Democrat who has given over $100,000 to Democrat campaigns in 2012.

Are the citizens of the newly drawn 1st Congressional District willing to let DelBene buy her way into Congress? I am not!
