Is difficult to live in a district where your state senator has morphed into a pathological liar from the woman of the people she once was... and once aspired to be.
When your senator lies about everything from how much money is in her campaign account, to pledging to oppose gas tax and tab fee increases... well, to this:
“To me a big part of being a citizen legislator is knowing what is on the hearts and minds of the people I represent, and carrying those questions and concerns to the state Capitol,” Rivers said in a news release. “I realize national politics are attracting a lot of attention, but these meetings are a time to focus on the state-level issues that concern southwest Washington — like the ongoing need for good jobs, which has been amplified by the coming job losses at the Camas paper mill, and where Olympia fits in when it comes to economic development.”It is discouraging, to say the least. But here is the brutal reality of "Gas Tax" Rivers' "representation."
Her inexplicable resurrection of the hated-by-her-district CRC/Loot Rail scam she'd helped to kill a few short years ago is another proof she could care less what we think... while it also shows that the special interests now own her like the 13th Amendment is the 13th Suggestion and that Mr. Lincoln never freed the slaves.
She has screwed us sideways on taxes in many different ways. Her actions were pivotal in the GOP losing control of the State Senate... an inevitable outcome of the RINO's disdain for the very thing Rivers claims she's so concerned about.
Yes, it's discouraging when your Senator is a stone, cold, liar and a sell out. A reasonably well-funded challenger could strangle her on her voting record alone... by beating her to political death using her voting record... her voting record... her voting record, which is the ONLY thing that matters.
"An oath to a liar is no oath at all."
