Why is STAND FOR CHILDREN giving money to the realtors’ PAC?
WA REALTORS PAC spent $1,697,622.64 in 2018. What are they trying to buy?
Jesse Salomon, candidate for State Senate in the 32nd LD, is a beneficiary of spending by both these PACs. According to this PDC page, Salomon received:
|Sponsor name||Amount||For/against||Itemized expenditures|
|WASHINGTON REALTORS POLITICAL ACTION COMMITTEE||39,826.79||For|
|STAND FOR CHILDREN WA PAC||37,725.85||For|
Friends of Cindy Ryu, Elect Jesse Salomon and Elect Lauren Davis used the deceptive name, “Democratic Team” to hide their identities to contribute “Est 28K.” All of these are listed under “Contributions to Salomon.” I wonder if it’s a campaign violation for other candidates to mis-identify themselves as ‘Democratic Team.”
Unlike her opponent, Senator Chase does not rely on deceptive negative ads, nor take the big bucks from Monsanto, Chevron, Merck and pro-charter school privatizers such as STAND FOR CHILDREN.
