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.

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.

The Terrifying Crop-Guy Palumbo’s Legacy

And The Truth Shall Get You Banned

Guy Palumbo Takes Low Road- or Guy Palumbo Never LEFT The Low Road.

 

 

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.

Folly Party

folly-small

 

 

Over the year I have watched my Party redefine themselves as and today become:

a costly ornamental building with no practical purpose, especially a tower or mock-Gothic ruin built in a large garden or park

On a local level The First Legislative Democrats,embraced hypocrisy, they cyberbullied members who did not agree with them and they indulged in the worst sort of personal attacks on their own candidates. They did this while crying, ” Revolution ” when they should have just cried ‘ Me! It’s All About ME!”

If you think that the Republican Party has a corner on this odious behavior, you’re wrong.

Anyone can act with folly, anyone can build a folly.

Just ask the Snohomish County Democrats.

Today they followed the First Legislative District  straight into the ditch.

This Is What Democracy Looks Like! Oh Yeah! UH-HUH! CLAP CLAP CLAP

I can’t imagine calling up a speaker that you invited to share an important message and life experience(s) and saying:

Oh by the way, we have to cancel. There are a bunch of people who are mourning the loss of the White House and we are going to let them talk about how they feel.

Never mind the person who was slated to speak could have done a lot to make a lot of people who had no idea they ( oh yes they ) had just been marginalized by people ” who looked like them” and were already feeling betrayed and intimated ( and they had every reason too feel that way).

In that moment that group of predominately white suburban progressives had an experience they could have shared  with someone that was not from their side of the fence, for that moment they stood on common ground  with a member of  another community (which is what they work hard to do ) and the decision in that moment   to run back into the proverbial  ivory tower and weep.

Alone.

This reaction shows that there is a lot of work to be done not in just understanding how a crude buffoon who brags about grabbing women by their P*&^% got into the White House but how it was so many people thought that it was okay.

I think this action by  The Chair is the beginning of understanding how that happened.

It’s a shame that when there was a chance for us to do right by each other, the action of one person dirtied that chance up.

The First Legislative District Democratic Party in Washington State

worked to vote in a candidate ( Guy Palumbo ) who’s campaign was fully funded by Charter School Money.

 He was also quoted as saying to a Republican Campaign Staffer:

“Don’t worry, I’m probably going to be the first one to cross over for you guys.”

So.

Let’s do the math shall we?

Donald Trump: Luvs him some Charter Schools and ran a campaign based on race- baiting.

Guy Palumbo:  Campaign paid for by Charter School PAC’s  and ran a  campaign based on race baiting .

WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?

Guy Palumbo: The Entitlement Candidate

Guy Palumbo IS  a charter school funded candidate-  and what he will HAVE to do to the families ( like Mindie’s  and a lot of my other friends with children in our Public Schools and our Teachers )   to show his ‘gratitude’ for receiving this massive amount of funding to  his campaign will be devastating to our community.

Raising our taxes and shipping our funds to Olympia will only be the beginning of what Palumbo will have to do to ‘work off’ his campaign ‘contributions’ from the groups who wrote him checks.

It’s a fact, Charter Schools have put a massive down payment on Guy Palumbo and we in the First Legislative District must not allow ourselves to be responsible for paying off the balance.

Just because he is running as a Democrat ( Guy Palumbo as everything except for Dog Catcher and maybe the Ice Cream Man ) does not mean he is

ENTITLED

to our vote.

It’s My Party and I’ll Call It Out If I Want To

Stand For Children and their checkbook had devastating consequences in the 2016 Primary in the First Legislative District in Washington State.

Supporting Stand For Children’s “democratic” candidate because Democrats feel they need to “save the seat for Democrats”is a forgone conclusion

First LD Democrats  need to wise up to the fact we  that lost  seat  when Palumbo advanced to the General- with Stand For Children pulling his leash.

I’ve  been told that the Republican Party considers the seat “won” No matter who wins  the seat in the First LD General.

Part of that certainty, I’ve been told from reliable sources,  came from Palumbo himself.

I supported and endorsed a Republican, (Mindie Wirth)for this seat because she ran a clean, open and honest campaign.

Guy Palumbo did NONE of those things.

Mindie did- she has been honest about her positions and who she is since she began her campaign

I could have cast my vote silently for Mindie, or been a party person and voted for Palumbo or silently no voted and took it for the team.

However, I know that Mindie will put the First above Party…and in turn I felt I confident I could reach across part lines to support her.

Please consider doing the same.
