.                                    It appears that Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers spent a great deal of her time traveling around the county in 2012  instead of coming home to listen to voters in Eastern Washington.   Why?  So corporate special interests in California can ask her for favors,  so she can raised money for herself from those same corporate special interests, and help to elect other far right conservatives to the U.S. Congress.

Cathy McMorris Rodgers is Missing from Eastern Washington

The Rich Cowan campaign did an excellent job documenting where she spent much of her time  in 2012 absent from Eastern Washington at Where is Cathy?  She was in North Carolina three times and New York twice.  That is more times than she visited voters in eastern Washington in 2012!  Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers also made trips to  Indiana, Las Vegas, Florida, Colorado, New Hampshire, Ohio, and  California. What do those places have to do with representing people from Eastern Washington?
