I’ve worked with whistleblowers for years now. One benefit of living in Thurston County is that you are never more than two degrees of separation from people working in almost every area and agency of government. This can be a goldmine of exposing the truth, if you are willing to look and seek the truth. There are certainly a lot of secrets in this place, but if more than two people know – it usually gets out eventually.
This being said, it is frustrating when I hear stories so old that I really can’t do much about them today. Eyewitness accounts of people gathering bags of cash, off the books, “contributions” that disappear into the back of the Governor’s car are pretty serious. This is particularly true when you actually can talk to the guy who was holding that bag and collecting the cash. However, when the story is 20 years old, there isn’t a lot I can do about Washington State Governor Gary Locke doing something like this. The statute of limitations are long expired, the corroborating witnesses (and even two is probably not enough) are tough to find, some are long gone.
However, this story still raises the need to remind those people out there who find themselves the unlikely person holding those bags of cash, or the person who might have done bad things to conceal these stories for our political elite, that you can unburden yourself. Help us expose the truth to the rest of the people who live here. Perhaps by exposing these guys and their petty or major corruption, we can discourage more people from getting stuck holding the bag.
Here is my video on this subject, originally posted on YouTube on February 28, 2023. Remember, share this video or article with others in Olympia, Seattle, or elsewhere who might be able to document more recent stories like this:
And, yes, you can see the full list of politicians, PACs, judges, and other political insiders who I have caught and exposed breaking the law here. There are 210 of them so far, and there are many more who may have escaped formal sanctions, but who I have also exposed the truth.
Unfortunately, this is a list far shorter than the true number who are doing equally as shady things today.
OUR CONSTITUTION BEGINS WITH THE PHRASE “WE THE PEOPLE.” IT WAS THE FOUNDERS’ INTENT THAT GOVERNMENT BE CREATED BY THE PEOPLE, TO SERVE THE PEOPLE. IT WASN’T THEIR INTENTION FOR THE PEOPLE TO SERVE THE GOVERNMENT. IT WAS ALWAYS INTENDED THAT GOVERNMENT WHICH FAILED TO SERVE THE PEOPLE SHOULD BE “ALTERED OR ABOLISHED.” UNTIL WE RETURN TO THE FOUNDER’S INTENT, WE REMAIN WE THE GOVERNED…
