Columbia County, WA

In this blog's recognition of Washington's 39 counties, each of the next 39 posts on Commoner will be named in honor of a county, in alphabetical order starting with Adams. The county that is recognized on a particular day does not necessarily correlate with the particular topic chosen for that day other than in the general sense.


The U.S. Supreme Court, unfortunately, doubled down on their controversial Citizens United decision and essentially overturned Montana's election law that specifically regulated corporate money in elections, and now billionaires and multi-millionaires can not only spend unlimited amounts of funds in federal elections, but in state elections as well, moving our nation ever closer to complete rule by oligarchy.  This is an issue in the Lieutenant Governor election as well as the 3 Establishment-endorsed candidates, Brad Owen, Bill Finkbeiner and Glenn Anderson, have had and will have corporate money at their convenience, especially the incumbent, Owen, who often goes on expensive junkets around the world doing the bidding of his corporate donors, no doubt.  If I'm elected, however, I will push for a state law that either forbids outsourcing of jobs to foreign countries or makes a tax so heavy on outsourcing that big companies in Washington will no longer consider taking jobs out of the United States as an option.

If possible, please, consider contributing to campaign: make selections of how you want to donate, or send check or money order to Mark Greene for Lieutenant Governor Comm., P.O. Box 612, Bellevue, WA 98009. Also, Mark is depending on supporters to spread the word about the campaign to get around the media bias regarding non-establishment campaigns. Thank you! Mark is probably the only politician in Washington that had the temerity to keep the 2004 election shenanigans in the news as late as 2011 and to call out names. Elections are too important for shams to be ignored and for accountability to be neglected.
