Dino Rossi Loves Children And Small Furry Animals
Thanks to my old friend and new Facebook acquaintance Gretchen Donart for turning me on to this great piece by Goldie over at Horsesass.org, hitting on the numerous lies in a powerful but largely baseless ad from the Rossi campaign. After the Court Appointed Special Advocate program called out Republican Party activist Mary Radcliffe for using her position for political advantage — an action that is clearly prohibited by the volunteer agreement to maintain the program's integrity — the ad was pulled from radio, only to resurface months later repackaged for TV. The ad makes Gregoire look like she's against needy kids for vetoing a $3 million foster care bill without mentioning that support for foster care has risen by $120 million since 2006.
