You won’t be surprised to find that I despise lies and the liars who tell them.
In your daily life, those who choose to deceive you can hurt you and even kill you.
And they almost always do it for their own personal benefit.
In politics, lies cheat citizens of the kind of representation they deserve and that our form of government promises.
That’s one of the reasons I want to tell you about the lies of Heidi St John, who claims she wants to represent citizens of Washington State’s 3rd Congressional district where I live.
Yes, I do have a dog in this fight and I plan to vote for Joe Kent, who’s running against St John to replace fake republican Jaime Herrera Beutler.
First lie: Heidi St John thought she had Donald Trump’s endorsement in the bag last year. So, when she was asked at a public forum if she would support the candidate who got Trump’s approval, she said yes.
Joe Kent got Trump’s endorsement, St John reneged on her promise.
Lie number two: her supporters have tagged Kent as a Bernie Sanders “bro” because Kent did something smart: voting for the dumbest democrat in the primary and then voting republican in the November general.
Kent keeps his promises and that’s what he has done. St John’s supporters have defamed Kent as a secret democrat.
Heidi St John could refute that lie…but she chooses not to.
In no way, shape or form does she deserve your vote.
