– Brad Shanon filed this report in The Olympian today:
“State Senate candidate Bruce Lachney said late Sunday in a statement that he is giving away any donations from Yelm-based spirit-channeler JZ Knight to college scholarships. The move comes after state Democratic chairman Dwight Pelz announced Friday the party is donating $70,000 from Knight to the Anti-Defamation League and the pro-gay marriage referendum, with half going to each.”
“Lachneys statement did not specify the scholarship. Knight has donated $1,800 and her Ramtha School of Enlightenment has donated another $1,800.”

“As a Republican that ran against Bruce Lachney and Randi Becker in the primary, I am livid over the initial mailer that I received from the Republican Party – Senator Randi Becker. Rather than apologizing, a second mailer was sent out.
To compound matters, her campaign created a disgusting website in addition to the mailers. Specifically, it combines different videos to create a false impression of Bruce Lachney, a former Marine Corps fighter pilot, retired Delta Airlines pilot and cranberry farmer has led an exemplary life.
Having campaigned against Bruce, I can say that he is a man of integrity. We share similar views in regards to budget, education, taxes, veteran issues and so on.
Personally, I am embarrassed by the Republican smear campaign in regards to Bruce and JZ Knight (Bruces Elected Advisor Come On). Elected officials represent everyone, JZ Knight included. My hat is off to Bruce for standing up for Democracy and EVERY CITIZEN.
For the Republican Party to attack Bruce for talking to the citizens of a certain group, implies that they are only concerned with representing a specific group of individuals. Party doctrine all the way and this strikes of communism.
Randi is still all about Randi. I am sorry, but not surprised, that her deceitful and illegal tactics against me in the primary have continued against Bruce. He deserves better. For that matter, we all deserve better than Randi representing her special interests. State Senators need to be professional and this is clearly missing in Randi Beckers campaign.
As a Republican, I want to apologize to Bruce. Not all Republicans feel this way nor do we believe these accusations. This website and Randi Becker needs to go away.”
