League of (non)WA Taxpayers?

We just got an e-mail from Lori Anderson at the Public Disclosure Commission. She says:

“The Public Disclosure Commission’s ‘search the database’ feature at www.pdc.wa.gov makes it easy to identify who is contributing to campaigns. Here is a comparison of the in-state vs. out-of-state contributions reported by the initiative committees so far…”

She then picks a handful of initiative committees and details their funding from in-state versus out-of-state donors.

“People for Safe Quality Care,” for example, (in favor of I-1029) has $389,742.88 from in-state donors and a big fat zero from out-of-staters.

The “League of Washington Taxpayers,” however (for I-1030) has gotten $430 from in-staters and $9,639.32 from out-of-state donors.

At this point, should we think of a new name?
