State Democratic chairman Dwight Pelz isn't usually good for a laugh but here he has outdone himself. He says that Jay Inslee doesn't have to worry about the big Democratic donors leaving because Inslee represents their values and Republican Rob McKenna does not.
Now here's the funny part: At the same time we learn that Inslee is going to attend a Manhattan fundraiser for him put on by – wait for it – Elliot Spitzer.
Spitzer you might recall is the former governor of New York who resigned in disgrace after being caught patronizing call girls.
So I guess, like Pelz says, Inslee doesn't have to worry about the local Democratic donors. He has other donors who better reflect his values or lack thereof.
