"Commons" has started a new blog this month, named Reliability, which for now, will basically cover the campaign for U.S. Representative in the 9th Congressional District of Washington in 2014, largely focusing on Mark Greene's campaign.

The long, arduous petition process, by Mark, for U.S. Representative in the 9th District is just about over.  There will be more about this effort in "Reliability" through a first person account by Mark Greene, and probably will be published either tomorrow or Saturday, May 17th.  Every major city in the 9th District is represented, although signatures from Federal Way, Bellevue, Tacoma and Newcastle predominate.  The petition will have roughly 2700 names on it, about a thousand more than the required number.  A great thanks to everyone who signed the petition, for you are especially the ones that see to it that there really is a democracy in America.  Despite that democracy in America is battered and under attack by those who would just rather have powerful, big-moneyed elites effectively appoint our legislators and officials, the petition signers said no to that, thank God.

Commoner is 99% certain that the 2004 G.O.P. primary election was stolen from Mark Greene and handed to a political novice. 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, and writing or calling the U.S. Attorney for Western Washington, Jenny Durkan, and requesting that she make public all matters relating to the '04 primary. Regarding the journalists, ask them to use "Freedom of Information" requests to get to the bottom of this case. For more information: see 2/26/13 post entitled "Major Election Irregularities (Graph & Essay), and from there, there will be a list of other related posts on Commoner. Elections are too important for shams to be ignored and for accountability to be neglected.

If possible, please, consider contributing to the Party of Commons, by sending a check or money order ($10 recommended), or contribute to Mark's U.S. Representative campaign that will be on the ballot in August, 2014 (checks should be made out to "Mark Greene for Congress"); for either matter, write to P.O. Box 612, Bellevue, WA 98009. Thank you!
