In fact, just from confirming the worst of intentions by his House Committee seat-mate Sam Hunt, Representative Alexander can conveniently resign from the legislature after the session ends and be clear of the Double Dipper attack plan which will be tough to get traction if he is only Thurston County Auditor during the 2013 special election campaign season. This should also serve as a signal to both political parties that there will soon be an open seat in the 2nd legislative district. With Randi Becker’s recent 2012 victory over the Democrat challenger and Ramtha supported Bruce Lackney, this soon-to-be newly open legislative seat should be a clear favorite for the GOP candidate. However, the campaign for this open seat will be fierce. The Democrat Party will need to look far and wide to try to find a viable candidate not tainted by association and financial support from Ramtha (this 35,000 year old warrior is conveniently channeled in the 2nd District by Mega-Donor to the Democrat Party JZ Knight).

attacked by the Democrats
as a Double-Dipper
Proving that there is nothing new and no independent thought at Democrat Party headquarters, Dwight Pelz – the high priest of party purity for the Washington State Democrat Party – has indicated that he will be assisting in a DD campaign against wayward Senator Tim Sheldon (D-35) in 2014. Senator Sheldon is also Commissioner Sheldon for Mason County – dual positions he has held for many years now. Unlike the DD campaign against Gary Alexander, the Double-Dipper campaign against Sheldon is unlikely to inspire Senator Sheldon to give up either seat or modify his behavior. Senator Sheldon will continue to caucus with the Republicans, and he appears to thrive on tweaking the High Priest of Democrat Party Purity, and he seems to enjoy the controversy. Judging from the two decades of past election results in the 35th legislative district, it also appears that Sheldon will win no matter how much money is spent against him. Regardless of whichever sacrificial lamb the Democrat Party throws against Sheldon, that DD campaign will not produce the results that Dwight Pelz is sacrificing to achieve.

For the Democrat Party going for DD plan
It is ironic that the political party least concerned with government waste, most supportive of squandering taxpayer dollars, and least responsible when it comes to use of taxpayer money is claiming the mantle of watchdog over abusing the public trust with double dipping. However, we should be heartened by this faux effort to attempt to restore some accountability in elected officials. There must be some recognition, even at the high priest level in the Democrat Party, that good government might suggest no double dipping and not allowing the hands of our elected officials to collect taxpayer funds at every turn. If they would only apply this new found discovery of responsible government towards the taxpayer-funded government unions, real reform could indeed have a chance in Olympia.
