Constantine and the Seattle Authoritarians

We were right about our lack of enthusiasm for County Executive Dow Constantine from the get-go, when we urged voters to support another candidate (Phillips) instead of him in the 2009 Primary for King County Executive, and in retrospect, should have supported a write-in candidate for the General Election, if nothing but to protest, but little did we know that Constantine would turn out to be an anti-commoner/anti-poor people authoritarian.  Constantine has kicked poor people off the buses in downtown Seattle in a massive way (ending the free downtown zones) and hasn't lifted a finger to help homeless people in the county.  Moreover, he was part of the gang in 2011 that kept the Director of Elections election under wraps and out of view from the public (so that he and his henchmen in high places could control Elections along with Sherril Huff), an election that was uniquely vilified in '11 and completely disrespected by anti-democracy kingpins in the county, including Constantine, the King County Municipal League and the Seattle Times.  Hopefully, there will be a People's candidate next year to challenge Constantine, a power-obsessed lackey for the very rich who is reminiscent of a tin-horn dictator.

If possible, please, consider contributing to the Party of Commons by sending a check or money order ($10 recommended) to Mark Greene's Party of Commons or $12 to the Secretary of State Campaign (to Mark Greene for Secretary of State); for either address, write to P.O. Box 612, Bellevue, WA 98009. 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 2012 and to call out names. Help us solve the mystery of "The Other Curious Election of 2004" (WA 9th Congressional District U.S. Rep. primary) by contacting real journalists and asking them to look into it. Elections are too important for shams to be ignored and for accountability to be neglected.
