I am a writer.
I was a writer long before I was married and I am still, first and foremost still a writer.
My stories- the fiction, the non-fiction, the poems and even my photographs are all based in part on my own life experiences. I have been putting the bulk of my work consistently on line since the late 90’s and by doing that became a public figure long before Luis became an elected official.
My life is literally an open book and for the most part I’ve written that book. Additional chapters were written by others and that was okay in my world. To another degree I’ve also come to understand that stories take on a life of their own.
Stories are powerful and dangerous tools
A few years ago a story was created with the singular purpose to destroy the life and political career of a good man in order to install a man named Guy Palumbo with zero verifiable experience, zero character into Office.
Why? Because Guy Palumbo’s campaign was funded by Amazon’s Jeff Bezos and the Washington State Democratic party wanted a taste of that Amazon money in their campaign coffers.
It’s called ‘surplusing’ and if Palumbo thinks that he was ‘preferred’ because of his political savvy he is as naive as the individuals in the First LD who chased Palumbo down the rabbit hole.
The link to how the story that was created to not only destroy Luis’ career- but to tarnish our sons lives as well follows at this close.
This story is a sobering reminder that you can bury the truth, you can spin the truth but the will out.
