The 30th Legislative District’s senate race between Republican Mark Miloscia and Democrat carpetbagger Shari Song is heating up as the left becomes increasingly desperate to turn the state Senate blue. Of course, a Democrat majority in the state Senate leaves the door wide open for Jay Inslee—with the support of California billionaire Tom Steyer—to implement his extreme environmental agenda.
Today, Song posted this on Facebook:
Spelling mistakes aside, Song’s recent find begs the question of why it took her so long to find the website. It may be that her campaign staff is confused about how to contact her—a rather probable explanation considering the amount of times Song has recently moved… Mercer Island to Bellevue to Maple Valley to Federal Way. Of course, her most recent move from Maple Valley (where she ran for King County Council and lost) to Federal Way was for the express purpose of running for the 30th LD’s open state senate seat.
The more likely explanation is that Song did not find the website, her campaign donors told her about it. You see, the website’s top contributors (the Kennedy Fund, Washington Federation of State Employees, SEIU) also support Song.
Whatever the case, the website that Song supposedly just stumbled upon is entirely dedicated to attacking Mark Miloscia as an “extremist.” The problem with that allegation (Democrats’ overused, go-to attack on Republicans) is that Miloscia’s endorsement list includes Democrats—current council members, mayors, former state senators, and former state representatives from the 30th LD. Perhaps if Song actually lived in the district for more than just a couple of months, she would know the Democrats who support Miloscia and realize the ridiculous nature of the extremist allegation.
Unfortunately, Song is a traditional Democrat and, as such, is rather intolerant of those who deviate from the party-line. Song told the Seattle Times that Miloscia’s across the aisle supporters were “so-called Democrats.” Washington Democrats Chair Jaxon Ravens proved the Democrat Party is the party of intolerance when he dismissed Miloscia’s supporters as “a group of faux Democrats making an effort to appear bipartisan.”
