Lady Susan Fancypants and right-wing money | Federal Way letters

So the hugely wealthy and extremely right-wing McCaw family is backing Lady Susan?

That certainly doesn't warm the cockles of my heart, especially when Lady Susan is not disclosing their support, as reported in the Oct. 22 Seattle Times:

"The state Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) said Wednesday it is investigating two campaign-finance complaints against Susan Hutchison's campaign for King County executive.

"The agency also is investigating whether the campaign is in violation of limits on contributions in a single election, either in-kind or cash, because of the value of the use of the home to the campaign. The complaint alleges that the value of using the house is up to $20,000 over the $800 contribution limit.

"The rental house is managed by a company owned by Bruce McCaw, who was a major contributor to a $150,000 independent expenditure ad campaign against Hutchison's opponent, Dow Constantine. Her campaign manager lives in the house."

When is Lady Fancypants going to come clean on her campaign's finances?
