What's wrong with this picture?
In a political world where likes attract, here's the curious case of Jon Russell and Steve "I can be bought" Stuart.
Now, the scummier elements touting both Russell and Herrera generally, but Russell specifically, TRIED to run the scam that one of Russell's many political opponents was only masquerading as a Republican and that, in fact, she was a democrat. Russell's slithering lackey, Gary Wiram, was particularly fond of lying that way.
Well, imagine my surprise when I found out that Russell had given at least three of his 4X8 sign locations and frames to Steve "Unmarked bills, Mr. Barnett" Stuart... democrat... who proceeded to put his signs directly over the top of Russell's.
(Note the first layer of corregated plastic behind Stuart's sign. That's Russell's sign.)
No hypocrisy there, eh, Gary? Where's your sniveling about that?
Stuart, the most corrupt elected official known here locally today, who holds his office by virtue of a little $100,000 "gift" bundled through Progressive Majority (Not unlike a $40,000 gift bundled through "Unite Here", likely from the same source for Tim "The Liar" Leavitt. (Never forget: "Cash" Stuart was a major player in Leavitt's campaign)) from Cowlitz Casino developer David Barnett; Stuart is one of the people making a serious effort to saddle 65,000 commuters with a thousand dollars or more in tolls per year to screw them to pay for a bridge and loot rail system Stuart wants, but certainly won't have to pay for.
That brings me to the Russell-Stuart connection.
This entire blog is devoted to the fact that politically, Russell isn't anything close to the act he puts on. So now, I've got to ask: why is Russell doing Stuart this particular favor?
Now, I get that Stuart is terrified. There's enough money being put together out there to end his political world, especially now, where Stuart is caught up in having the decidedly wrong brand (democrat) and the decidedly wrong plan (hurting tens of thousands of county voters for his own agenda.)
Stuart is pro-abortion, pro tax, pro big government.
So, how is it that he's been given at least 3 prime Russell sign locations to the extent that all he had to do put his own signs directly over Russell's?
Is this what David Madore had in mind when he maxed out to Russell?
I don't think so.
Is it possible that Stuart is just taking the sign frames without Russell's knowledge or permission?
I don't think so.
All of which begs the question:
Why would Jon Russell allow Steve Stuart to do this? I mean, all of TeacherJudyBanks' followers were/are leftists, save one... but this is ridiculous.
Inquiring minds want to know.
