Jay Inslee’s staff is—once again—peddling his paint-by-numbers looking drawings in a bizarre fundraising ploy. This week, Inslee’s campaign staff sent two emails that offered recipients an “opportunity” to receive one of Inslee’s “originals.” To receive an Inslee “original,” all one would have to do is make a donation. The first email starts off,
“Traveling around Washington with Governor Inslee, it doesn’t take long to realize how much he loves this state and how much he loves to draw. He doesn’t have a lot of free time these days, but when he has a few minutes, you can bet he’s sketching.”
Reading between the lines, we can only assume that Inslee’s staff uses a piece of paper and crayons to distract our green governor while the grown-ups talk. The email goes on,
“Think about how great it would be to hang an original piece of art by the Governor on your wall, and then donate today — before our month-end deadline — for your chance to receive a drawing…
“I’m just a little jealous staff aren’t eligible…”
Again, reading between the lines, Inslee’s staff has so many of his worthless drawings—which he probably draws on state time with state resources—they are attempting get rid of them while sparing our green governor’s feelings. So, they’ve developed a scheme to pawn them off on supporters.
The second email is a little more direct. All it asks is, “Want a drawing from Jay Inslee?” And, it also includes examples of Inslee drawings—drawings that invoke the immediate response of “No” to the question. Here are a few examples:
