While Democrat Tyana Kelley is campaigning for "working class families" in Washington's 9th Legislative District, she is using her campaign funds to shop at ritzy clothing stores like Macy's and New York and Company.
According to PDC reports, nearly 10% of the $3701.01 Kelley has spent so far has been on clothing. I'm sure the working families of this district who are dealing with the nation's highest gas tax, courtesy of the Democratic legislature and Governor Gregoire, would love to treat themselves to a $300 shopping spree.
Luckily for the union-backed Kelley, none of the purchases have been made at Wal-Mart. However, it is interesting to note that Kelley, who has falsely claimed that Rep. Joe Schmick believes that "businesses in WA border towns should be able to pay lower wages in order to compete with Idaho minimum wage" herself spent $62.54 at Macy's, which, of course, IS LOCATED ACROSS THE BORDER IN MOSCOW, IDAHO.
On her PDC report, Kelley even tries to pull a fast one by reporting that Macy's is located in Pullman:
Kelley feels 9th District voters are "underrepresented" in Olympia. If she means we are not represented by spendthrifts who have no loyalty to Washington businesses, she's exactly right.
Oh, and Tyana, just one more thing: love your suit.
