September 23, 2018

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

4 weeks later we are at 28 posts with reasons why Doug’s Got to Go. Today we are visiting the twittisphere where there were some tweets fluttering around early last month questioning the appropriateness of Republican State Senator Doug Ericksen attendeding elections in Cambodia in late July of this year. Not only did he, along with Representative Vincent Buys, attend what The Seattle Times reported were widely regarded as sham elections in Cambodia, Senator Ericksen invited two other Washington lawmakers to attend, as well.  Continue reading

26 days and, once again, there is no doubt that Doug’s Got to Go.

Fire Doug #24 / Noisy Waters Northwest

There have now been 24 days of Doug’s Got to Go posts and yesterday’s 23rd post about  Republican State Senator Doug Ericksen reminded me how he minimizes the level of his climate denial by calling it climate agnosticism and yet had enthusiastically introduced climate-denier Tony Heller for a presentation to a legislative committee last year. That, in turn, reminded me that Senator Ericksen has affiliations that he would like us all to forget about right now while he is running again to represent us.  Continue reading

Today is day 23 of posts stacking up the reasons Doug’s Got to Go before we fire Republican State Senator Doug Ericksen in November this year.
