    It’s sad, really, that Suzie Cute has turned into a bombastic shill for BIAW special interests. I liked her better when she was a TV bimbo.

    Ned spews:

    The Affordable Housing Council is not BIAW. It’s the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties. One endorsed Ron Sims for Governor in 2004. The other endorsed Dino Rossi. they are run and funded separately. Thses ads have nothing to do with BIAW.

    This is actually the second of two messages being sent out by the BIAW. I got another call on Wednesday with a different message that she has been endorsed by Rob McKenna and Wes Uhlman also paid for by the “Affordable Housing Council”. I also received the one you have yesterday.

    Ned is 100% correct.
    This is Master Builders of King/Snohomish County PAC.
    They have an entirely different Board, totally seperate decision-making and are often at odds with BIAW.

    Ned @2,

    From the BIAW’s web site:

    BIAW and BIAW’s Political Action Committee, the Washington Affordable Housing Council, play an active role in Washington State elections, pouring a significant amount of time, energy and money into ensuring the election of pro-business and pro-housing candidates that support the building industry and the continued economic growth of the state.

    I’m not sure, but it appears that BIAW’s PAC is called Washington Affordable Housing Council and MBA’s PAC is called Affordable Housing Council.

    Who cares? It’s all fucking trivia. Hutchison is the ‘growth’ industries’ bitch and you will see more ticky-tacky than you can shake a stick at if you elect this blowzy strumpet.

    Correction It should be Council not Coalition.

    on 6/18/2009 the Affordable Housing Council gave $15,000 to the Washington Affordable Housing Council which is one of the BIAW’s official PAC’s.

    It was the biggest contribution received by the BIAW’s Washington Affordable Housing Council PAC this year.

    So – Ned and Jonathan, this is a BIAW linked group and they give each other money back and forth.

    Thank you Steve, for documenting this.

    I got two calls for Hutchinson at home. too bad you can’t hang up on a robocall. Robocalls tend to annoy people anyways – unless they are the kind that slander the opponent.

    I prefer to talk to live people – whether they are for or against the candidate of my choice.

    At least I can ask them questions and see if they can answer them.

    so lemme get this straight…

    your Magical Mayoral Candidate McGinn (who’s traffic plan consists of waving his magic wand & getting 70,000 cars disappear) hides his involvement with anti-Mallahan robocalls in the primary, and admits to sending out the current ones lying aobut Mallahan, but he’s soooooo goooooodddd.

    Yet a group does it for Hutchison and it’s “dishonest.”

    You have no capacity for self-reflection, do you?

    @11 on 6/18/2009 the Affordable Housing Concil gave $15,000 to the Washington Affordable Housing Council which is one of the BIAW’s official PAC’s. Money just circulates between them. (from PDC website)

    The MBA and BIAW work together to defeat consumer protection legislation. BTW/Deb Eddy as well sponsors of HB 1393 were endorsed as builder friendly candidates by the Affordable Housing Council.
