Democrat State Representative Hans Dunshee, the same liberal who was just appointed to fill a vacant seat on the Snohomish County Council against the wishes of voters, wants everyone to know that he works really hard. So, this weekend, he took to Facebook to let constituents know about his work ethic.
Check out his Facebook post:
There are a couple of reasons why Dunshee may have felt the need to make such a bizarre announcement on social media. Given recent circumstances, it was likely his attempt to assure constituents that he deserves the position he was handed on the Snohomish County Council, despite finishing as the second choice of the Democrat precinct committee officers in the district.
You see, it’s clear to onlookers that Dunshee’s appointment came about as a deal among insiders. As the state House budget chair, there are certain payoffs in the budget that councilmembers might hope Dunshee will deliver before he leaves Olympia.
In order to make up for the bad PR (even among Democrats), Dunshee decided to toot his own horn — something that, considering his profile picture, he quite literally does.
