Doug Ericksen is a real leader. A May 30 article informed us that he is wined and dined by lobbyists at their expense more than any other member of the Washington state legislature. The records show that Sen. Ericksen received 37 percent more largesse than the next highest legislator and nearly 100 percent more than the top recipient in the opposing party.
Yes, indeed, Doug Ericksen is a real leader. He has helped lead the legislature into special session, which then enables him to get more salary and pocket even more per diem pay from we taxpayers while he is treated by lobbyists. He is a great example of the transformation from a citizen legislator to a full-time politician.
