Representative Reichert – The 8th District deserves better

I’ve never met Representative Reichert. I consider him a moderate Republican but unfortunately he represents us as a loyal Republican club member rather than an intelligent, honest Washington State citizen who happens to belong to the Republican Party.

Representative Reichert defeated his Democratic opponent and therefore I need to accept that his actions are gong to be biased. When you win an election you have the option but not an obligation to follow what your party dictates.

Washington State is just about as far away from the Washington D.C. beltway as any state in the nation. For every mile away from D.C. a politician lives the more honest and less partisan that politician should be. Washington State has always prided itself at being independent from the silliness of D.C. politics while at the same time respecting party affiliation.

Recently Representative Reichert voted to authorize the House of Representatives to sue the President of the United States. I think even Representative Reichert’s D.C. office was embarrassed to share this information concerning his vote on this issues. I had to call his Issaquah office to find out how he voted. Sixteen hours after the vote, his D.C. office still said they didn’t have an authorized statement to share.

Voting to sue the President was a silly vote and a vote that Representative Reichert did not need to make to keep his support in the 8th District. Representative Reichert knew that this vote accomplished nothing. Instead of calling out his fellow party members for wasting time he followed the leadership of the club. Party loyalty rather than voting with integrity creates a political system that is killing this nation.
