Did Herrera Beutler Forget a Pay Off?

by lewwaters

Jaime Herrera Beutler, Washington State’s newest Representative for the 3rd Congressional District has achieved her dream of officially becoming a full-time professional career politician in the history books. How she did it never mattered to her, just that she made it and like other establishment career politicians, has began paying off those who helped her step on others to get where she is.

The Republican freshman began by announcing the appointment of past Clark County Republican Party chair, Ryan Hart as her District Director. Hart, in violation of words he spoke to me personally, publicly endorsed her while still chair of the party and promoted her candidacy from the chair, largely ignoring any other Republican Challenger, helping to create an unlevel playing field for the nomination.

Self-professed “Tea Party Icon,” Marine Corporal David W. Hedrick, former opponent of Herrera Beutler, told too many people that he was not going to file in June 2010 so he could back another candidate to “stop Herrera from winning” the nomination. I received several first-hand accounts from some very prominent people, some elected officials, of such words spoken to them by Hedrick.

Naturally, this was all before he ran the vicious campaign he did against the candidate he continually labeled as dead last in the polls and not being anywhere near he and Herrera, who were tied for first place in said polls.
