Perfect timing for this editorial, that came out today in The Seattle Times, to contribute to day 29 of our Doug’s Got to Go posts. It offers a third day in a row of reasons why Republican State Senator Doug Ericksen’s judgement cannot be trusted, among other ways his judgement cannot be trusted, in relation to his numerous trips to Cambodia.  Continue reading

26 days and, once again, there is no doubt that Doug’s Got to Go. Today’s highlights are from yesterday’s 9/19/18 Lynden Tribune arcticle, “Ericksen hosts his own talking sessions,” in which Calvin Bratt reports back from Republican Senator Doug Ericksen’s campaign stop at the Lynden Community Center on Saturday.

The day 8 Doug’s Got to Go post is a doozy, because it reminds us how glorious it will be to vote a start-to-finish Trump fan and emmisary out of the state senate office for the 42nd LD. This May 15, 2016 post of Sandy Robson’s also shows Republican Senator Doug Ericksen’s tendency to shirk responsibility for his actions.  Continue reading
