We didn’t need Wiki-Leaks to know that the Democrat Party is not — ironically enough — democratic. But, as we previously pointed out, the emails did put a spotlight on plenty of extreme Democrat hypocrisy.
The emails exposed political bigotry in the party that has taken it upon itself to act as our nation’s hypersensitive speech police. It’s the pinnacle of hypocrisy — and it reaches all the way to our state’s own Jay Inslee.
You see, every other word out of Inslee’s mouth involves criticism of GOP Bill Bryant for not denouncing Donald Trump. Yet, Inslee has yet to comment on the highly controversial emails coming out of his party. The latest focus is on emails highlighting blatant example of the quid-pro-quo approach of his national party’s fundraisers.
One batch of emails reveal that party officials planned which donors and prominent fundraisers would be rewarded for their monetary assistance with appointments to federal boards and commissions. The Daily Caller reports:
The spreadsheet — which was accompanied by emails sent between officials with the DNC’s finance team — contains 23 names of little-known corporate executives and professional fundraisers who have donated to the committee and various Democratic political action committees…
Most of the donors listed on the spreadsheet have given to Clinton’s campaign. None gave to Sanders.
And, lest Democrats claim that the spreadsheets were not used for a you-scratch-my-back-and-I’ll-scratch-yours purpose, clear evidence already exists that they were. Again, the Daily Caller reports:
But one tip-off that the document is detailing a quid pro quo is an entry next to the name of David Shapira, the executive chairman of grocery store chain Giant Eagle, Inc.
“USPS” — a likely reference to the U.S. Postal Service — is entered on the spreadsheet.
President Obama nominated Shapira for a position on the USPS’ board of governors last year but the retail executive did not take the position because congressional Republicans held up his nomination.
So, given the Wiki-Leaks email scandal and our green governor’s line of reasoning of the need for gubernatorial candidates to call out when their values don’t match those of their national party, the question is when can we expect Inslee to denounce the Democrat National Committee, or at least call for the firing of some of the more extreme staff?
