Tim Sheldon Lied, he gave $10,000 to the GOP

UPDATE: Which Democrats did he help beat in 2002?

From the Olympian chat today:

Sal, Olympia: Why do you still believe you can call yourself a Democrat when you voted for George Bush and gave $10,000 of your surplus campaign funds to the GOP?

Sheldon: I certainly call myself a Democrat. I’m a member of the party. I voted for Bush, but I also voted for Patty Murray. I voted for Dino Rossi and also Brad Owen, a Democrat. I didn’t give $10,000 to the GOP. I do give money to organizations that may have supported Republicans. I also give money to organizations that do support Democrats.

You can find the same information by going here, choosing the Senate Republican Campaign Committee, and sorting by contributor name and then amount.

The Senate Republican Campaign Committee may have given money to Republicans? You’re kidding.

While the SRCC may not the “GOP” by the strictest definition, it is a GOP organization, and that kind of parsing is trying to get away from saying “I support Republicans” while still being able to do it.

Sheldon is trying to win a closed Democratic primary, and as long as he still calls himself a Democrat, he should at least try to act like one.

    He seems to be pretty loose and goosey with lots of issues. I am so going to enjoy voting against him and maybe even more helping fight his re-election.
