Impressions on election night.

As expected, most of Russell's Herd was crushed... losers including Delavar, Plinski, Anderson, Bang and Zandamela... footnotes in political history.

Freeman, Russell's lackey from his campaign may win, holding a tiny lead of 52 as of this writing. But the balance of the city council will remain firmly out of the control of Russell, re-enforcing that even the people of Washougal are sick of his hijinks, as are the people of Camas and Battle Ground.

These races ARE close, and the final outcome is subject to change. But so far, it looks like Russell's electoral efforts have wound up like they typically do: failing.

I called all of these races, save the Coston-Freeman race... and it ain't over until it's over.

The Vancouver City Council Races also came out the way I thought they would, with Smith, Hansen and Turley getting it done, save for last minute changes in the vote.

Scott Higgins crushed his competition in the Camas mayoral...

The state rep race went as anticipated as well. The problem for a Republican winning in a socialist district is that the things he has to run on... accountability, smaller government and reduced spending, are the exact opposite of what the people in such a district want. Heavily dependent on the welfare state and utilizing a superior ground game, there was little chance of election for a fiscal conservative by a government dependent district.

Marc Boldt's illegal campaign tactics were obviously successful in the carefully gerrymandered district he was instrumental in developing from his position on the CTrans board.

The buzz now is that Boldt will use Steve "The Liar" Stuart's wife, democrat Heather Melton, as his campaign manager.

Why am I not surprised?

The statewide initiatives went as expected as a county wide expression of support for the Costco plan and Eyman's effort to rein in the rampant tolling scams so supported by Steve "The Liar" Stuart, Tim "The Liar" Leavitt and Marc "Turncoat" Boldt.

I'll make a decision over filing a PDC complaint against Boldt and those he was shilling for over the next few days. Needless to say, once again, I'm ashamed of this fake Republican.... even if he is my brother-in-law.

  1. "As expected, most of Russell's Herd was crushed... losers including Delavar, Plinski, Anderson, Bang and Zandamela... footnotes in political history."

    Niki Anderson WAS NEVER any part of the Russell stables....

  2. Looks like Plinksi made a late run... 10 vote lead now... It is possible that Russell picks up one on his side. I am surprised Coston lost. I thought she would win easily.

  3. Looks like Plinski has taken the lead....

  4. Yeah, great. We trade a 16 year veteran law maker, with heavy involvement in our community, worked many years for a local company, is very supportive of our Fire Dept. and we get in return, a person who has not even voted in the last 8 elections, sells Mary Kay cosmetics out of her home, and apparently did not correctly list her business on her voting pamphlet. Great move Washougal.

  5. What are the voters thinking............without Coston and Morris our city will certainly suffer. These two have served our city well with common sense and a willingness to move our city in a positive direction. Just the fact that Plinski and Freeman believe in Russel tells me they are either complete idots or have the integrity of a slug!

  6. This is what happens when people do not get out and vote. Exactly what happened in Wisconsin and many other elections. Shame on the people of Washougl.

  7. I totally agree with the above comment, "Shame on the people of Washougal". You now will get what you deserve.

  8. awwww. Poor little Jonny took down his kiss-butts blogsite again........maybe didn't pay the bill on it either??
