Kate Brown and her State of Reknown

Florida’s Secretary of State has gone through the databases, located, and purged some 53,000 dead people from the voter rolls. Here in Oregon, Secretary of State Kate Brown has other things to do: willfully misrepresenting election law in order to favor her fellow Democrats, trying to force Republicans out of the voters’ pamphlet, and refusing to destroy unused ballots as required by law, among other things. Small wonder she’s been given the #KorruptKate tag – she’s been working hard to earn it.

Unlike Florida’s SoS, Katie’s too busy to Lk3-251x300bother with trivialities; voter fraud, after all, is simply a nonissue in Oregon –  folks like Lafayette Keaton notwithstanding.

Keaton not only voted for a dead person in Oregon, he voted for his dead son.  Making Keaton’s fraud easier was Oregon’s vote by mail scheme, which has opened up gaping holes in the integrity of elections.

But the integity of elections isn’t nearly as important to Oregon’s SoS as rigging them. Oregon has very critical issues facing it, such as requiring schools to eliminate mascot names like “Indians,” “Chiefs” and “Braves.” Presumably, the next step will involve eliminating things like “Fire Chief” and “Chief of Police”. Mustn’t risk offending our Indian compadres, after all. Troutdale will soon be home of the “Fighting Smelt”, who will battle the Sandy Spotted Owls in epic high-school sports action.

These are critical issues which demand immediate, hard-hitting approaches for successful and sustainable resolution. Election integrity? Not so much.

  • Capital budget’s impact on school construction funding July 21, 2017
    The third special session ended yesterday without the passage of the $4.2 billion capital budget. Legislators were unable to agree on a water-rights bill to address the Supreme Court’s Hirst decision, an issue rural representatives had tried to raise repeatedly throughout the session. “We’ve never seen anything like this before, but the stakes have never […]
  • Ranker: Unconscionable that Senate Republicans blocked vote on capital budget July 21, 2017
    Sen. Kevin Ranker, D-Orcas Island, released this statement after Senate Republicans refused to allow a vote on the state capital budget: It is incredibly unfortunate that on the final day of the special legislative session, the Senate Republicans placed their political agenda ahead of the wellbeing of our children, mentally ill, homeless, and public and […]
  • Capital budget, Ryan Calkins, #dadhacks July 20, 2017
    With luck, today will be the last day of the 2017 legislative session, giving us a whopping 12 days before the August primary.  We’ve got a few data points for you, both qualitative and quantitative, on the session and the ballot box in this edition of the Morning Wire. As always, thanks for reading our […]
  • “Stability” Is Another Word for “Lack of Accountability” July 22, 2017
    A bill in the California legislature would give Caltrain, the commuter trains that connect San Jose with San Francisco, “permanent financial stability.” That’s good news if you think you will be riding Caltrains one thousand years from now, but it’s bad news for the taxpayers who will have to “permanently”–however long that is–pay for running […]
  • HUD Backs Off on Housing Mandate July 21, 2017
    In a case with national ramifications, the Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) has effectively given up on its efforts to impose high-density housing on low-density suburbs in the name of racial integration. HUD had ordered Westchester County, New York, to build low-income housing in response to claims that county zoning led to segregated […]
  • Will Miami Settle for Modern Transportation? July 20, 2017
    “Can Miami afford more rail?” asks the Miami Herald. “Or will it settle for buses?” That’s like asking if you can afford an IBM 700 mainframe computer from the 1950s or if you will settle for a MacBook Pro. Both buses and laptop computers are far less expensive than rails and mainframes, but the former […]
