If its latest email to supporters is any indication, the Washington State Democrat Party is quite concerned over the 2016 presidential election. So concerned, in fact, that it has already resorted to the go-to, desperate Koch-brothers-are-the-boogeymen line of attack.
The email warns of the impending financial dangers presented by the Koch brothers and conservative Super PACs. Of course, Democrats hypocritically forget the fact that far-left billionaires—including Tom Steyer and his NextGen Climate Action PAC—and liberal dark money Super PACs considerably outspent their conservative counterparts during the 2014-midterm elections. And, of course, they also leave out Democrat frontrunner Hillary Clinton’s sketchy financial ties currently making national headlines.
In any case, the email proceeds to ask recipients to provide feedback on their three biggest issue concerns via a survey. Oddly enough—especially given the topic of the email, campaign finance reform is not one of the options.
Here’s the survey/list:
Choose your TOP THREE issue interests and let us know if you want to be involved:

- State income tax
- State capital gains income tax
- Raising taxes on small businesses
- Giving pay raises to our biggest campaign donors
