More evidence of Dan Satterberg’s vaunted non-partisanship comes from his campaign expenditures, where he’s already paid Rep. Dan Roach (R-Bonney Lake) and his wife Melanie $6,663.60 for phone banking on his behalf. I suppose it’s not so uncommon for elected officials to phone constituents on behalf of fellow party members, but I didn’t realize they sometimes charge for it.
Most of the money went to Melanie and her gym (she’s a competitive weightlifter with Olympic ambitions.) Other than Dan Satterberg, Melanie has also been paid to phone bank for such noted non-partisans as Republican Rep. Dan Roach, Republican state Sen. Pam Roach (Dan’s mommy) and the King County Republican Party.
Yup, you can’t get much more non-partisan than that.

Hurt me, Melanie!
Proud To Be An Ass spews:
Does Melanie have to take and pass pee tests for the competitive lifting? Does she have Arnold’s autograph?
Roger Rabbit spews:
I’ve never heard of anyone getting paid for phone banking before, and I’ve done lots of phone banking. Seems like an irregularity.
Roger Rabbit spews:
It appears Dan Roach prefers the beefy, bulked-up, mannish type of woman. I wonder if he also likes … oh, never mind ….

Don’t ask questions that you don’t know the answer to.

Roger at 3
I agree. I’ve done phone banking, and no one ever offered me any money. That is invariably a job for volunteers. With regard to your comment at 4, I must also agree. I don’t think she’s the first woman I’d approach in a bar.
4 Roger, evidently you didn’t check out the photos of Melanie.
In fact, if you sat her next to Venus Velasquez, you’d get the impression they might be twins.
Sherman is a shoo – this race is closed
who cares who he pays – labor is value
Sherman is a partisan hack – a republican in a democratic area. Only by pretending to be non-partisan can he win. Even if he does win – he will give himself away by supporting the far right wingers he is in bed with and thereby lose the next election. He is a one-termer at best.
