    before turning 18.  The vast majority of those are from family members, since they have unquestioned access to children.

    As soon as I heard this disgusting speech, I donated to Koster's opponent, Suzan delBene.  I encourage anyone who opposes him (and who can afford) to do the same.

    Also, while we're at it, perhaps we should start a campaign to the Seattle Times to retract their endorsement of him?  It's infuriating that we are the one of the most socially progressive states in the country, yet our principal newspaper endorses this...  I can't think of a word that describes him.

    Letters to the Editor:
    Phone:  206-464-2111

    We really need to get people like him out of the public sphere.

      i believe we contributed to delbene's campaign thru act blue, but will check & if not, will do so  :)

    •  It's also possible to phone bank for DelBene (6+ / 0-)

      no matter where you live. If you're interested,
      email for joining the GOTV phone banking, with set days and times.

      Getting this slimebag out of office would be a real accomplishment.

      I'm seeking to organize DKos members in SE Michigan--roughly, from the Ohio line at Lake Erie NE to Port Huron, W to Flint and back S from there. If you'd like to join our new group, Motor City Kossacks (working title), please Kosmail me.

      . . .the Seattle Times.  The Blethens, who own the rag, are extremely angry because they have to pay estate taxes(read Republicans).  My God, they are really weird about it.  I do not trust their editorial page.  I cancelled their paper after 20 years. I now read the Everett Herald and the New York Times.  You should have seen them trying to get me back.

      LowMittcutus and Ryanotic of Borg. They will assimilate you.
