RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
Please ask the following questions of Linda Williams:
Why she and Sal Peralta endorsed two Republican incumbents (Frank Morse and Andy Olson) in Linn/Benton county Senate and House races;
Why they changed the rules several days after the online election started to allow candidates to essentially buy the right to mail passcodes to IPO voters;
How much money did the IPO leadership save in mail costs for reminder postcards by having candidates assume that responsibility;
Did the IPO receive any contribution or promise of a contribution from any of the incumbents in return for IPO endorsements;
Who else has the IPO endorsed for this race;
Ethically, how does the IPO leadership explain the decision to endorse candidates - isn't it a contradiction that Independents should need to have their party leadership tell them who to vote for?
How can the IPO leadership possibly justify endorsing Andy Olson when Olson voted against many bills the IPO supported, including the Fusion Voting bill, itself?
Finally, how much money are the IPO leaders having to pay for the online election because they failed to consider all of the aspects of conducting an election and their "pay for play" ploy was shot down by the Secretary of State?
