ELECTION: Voters deserve better than Norm Dicks

Here we go again. Democratic Congressman Norm Dicks is associated with fraudulent political activities.

Dicks was the recipient of $101, 200 (from 2002 to 2008) from lobbyist Paul Magliocchetti, who was just indicted on 11 counts of fraud for making illegal campaign contributions. A federal grand jury on Thursday charged the lobbyist with evading federal limits on campaign donations by using straw donors to funnel hundreds of thousands of dollars to members of Congress, especially those with influence over military spending.

Is this the type of person we want representing us? The voters in the 6th Congressional District deserve much better. We can make a fresh start by voting him out this year. Another reason to vote for Jesse Young for Congress.
