If you thought that Washington had cornered the market on election corruption in the Pacific Northwest, you thought wrong:
Secretary of State Bill Bradbury was the recipient of thirteen letters from the state GOP detailing alleged election laws violations, including two candidates, Senator Joanne Verger and Senator Laurie Monnes-Anderson, who spent tens of thousands of dollars of in-kind donations not reported until after the election.
Other campaign in - kind donations received by a number of legislators, including Ryan Deckert, also violated election laws, according to the Oregon GOP.
Laundered campaign money was received by Judy Steigler ($12,300) and others.
Representative Chuck Riley neglected to report $2,000 of media buy expenditures.
The same Bill Bradbury (D) who obstructed the efforts to put Nader on Oregon's ballot.
Oh, I'm sure he'll get right on this.
