An Insidious Politician- Guy Palumbo of Washington State

 He ( Guy Palumbo ) is a Snake- feel free to quote me on that " Tony Yuchasz Executive Director- House Democratic Campaign Committee ...

 

I have documented ( look for links at the end of this story ) the smear campaign against Former Representative Luis Moscoso and our family  that Guy Palumbo used to get himself a seat in Olympia.

Briefly:

Two years ago Guy Palumbo kited into the Washington State Senate with a boat load of Amazon Cash and bought himself a seat in Olympia.

Palumbo didn’t run a campaign per se- Guy Palumbo ran a smear campaign based on stereotypes and two of his most vocal campaign spokesmen- one of who was at the time the LD Chair and the second was a Former LD Chair -blew hard on each and every dog whistle Palumbo handed them.

However,  I will give him credit- Palumbo  is a multi tasker- he didn’t seek to destroy only Luis’s career and legacy. For his own warped and twisted reasons he tried to do that to me and Luis’s sons too.

He managed to cast a shadow over our sons- I can only guess I was left out of the narrative because when I first met Palumbo after his first ill fated run at a Democratic seat I almost made him cry.

I’m not kidding. Not even a little.

Our Legislative District held a dinner at a local restaurant to go over the recent election wins and one of the attendees was Guy Palumbo who until that night had never attended any First LD functions or meetings.

On to the tears.

They weren’t happy tears- Palumbo was angry and frustrated and  he blamed Luis for his loss and DEMANDED Luis call him. I was under the impression from Palumbo that I was obligated by Palumbo because of this loss to get Luis to show him both honor and respect.

I’m still puzzled by Palumbo’s behavior that night.

So.

Fast forward a few years later and on an old Facebook Post I  came across a comment recently left by a journalist recently- who ran this story for Palumbo- in fact his campaign spokesman provided people with the link to the story she wrote on an ” unofficial ” LD Facebook Page.

Here’s the post from my face book post from two years ago- below is Brandia’s comment from  just a few days ago

 

( original Facebook post HERE )

From this point on my writer’s sensibility tells me that this is Brandia’s story to tell.  I respect that process and I will not be adding to her narrative. :::UPDATE::: Brandia’s story in the SNO-CO REPORTER STORY CAN BE FOUND HERE

To be clear here- the only person  have ever held responsible for the attack on my family was Guy Palumbo and the Democratic Party and it’s leadership who allowed him to do what he did.

So I will wait, with the rest of you to see where Brandia’s story takes her.

In the mean time I suggest Guy Palumbo remember that we do indeed reap what we sow and Guy Palumbo has planted a terrifying crop for himself.

That’s Just Sad

I was out walking my dog Hamish when we came across one of his favorite grazing spots.

Long story short.

It’s gone now.

It Really Is That Simple

 

From The Article :

In this instance, what occurred led the chairwoman of the Snohomish County Republican Party on Monday to demand that an executive of the county Democratic Party resign and the party’s leader apologize for the spread of falsehoods online about a GOP member.

The Republican party leader is not going to get what she seeks, although it’s pretty clear the Democrats’ portrayal of events does not sync with reality.

Back in the day we called that LIEING.

False claims online ignite a snit among local party leaders

 

For your consideration:

One who gets up in a Public forum and refers to a Democratic Representative as an ” Asshole ” is probably not above slamming  an  individual from the opposing Party in foul and crass terms.

Abandon Ship

I’m not sure why I use Facebook.

I prefer to write and explore new ideas, I get a lot of satisfaction in creating my stories and poems and when it happens my photographs.

Facebook and the Facebook universe most certainly does not care if I do any of those things.

In the Facebook Universe I am invisible.

When I write here I feel like I’m accomplishing something- when I facebook I’m just a little spud on vine that is tended to feed marketing departments. I know that, in fact we all know that now.

Everything we post, our friends list, the groups we like- all of it was a fun way to give Marketing Departments, Political campaigns all the info they needed to sell us ‘stuff’ and to sell us someone else’s ideas.

My writing – which  will tell you more about me and my world view then what I ‘like’ or angry face on Facebook posts ever will doesn’t matter on Facebook newsfeeds.

I like being a writer, it makes me feel like an individual, it gives me a sense of independence and yes it does make me feel unique.

Here on my blog I’m not a little spud on a vine being tended until I’m ripe and plump and ready to be harvested where I will end up on a serving platter waiting to be devoured by some jackass who probably slathers everything is ketchup and chews with their mouth open.

I’m not sure how I’ll transition from Facebook back to my blog- I’ve tried it before. Now though it would appear that it’s time to make it happen.
