Mrs. Wyman goes to Washington

October 27th, 2021 by Ken

The reluctant politician – Kim Wyman – is on her way to Washington DC to work with the President Biden administration to bring security back to the American election system.  That’s the stated reason – to being security back to an election system which may or may not have been compromised.

The real reason Kim is moving to the national level is to bring confidence back to a battered system.  She is probably the only person in the country who can do so.

Kim is a member of the Republican party.  For decades she has slipped through the Democratic machine which controls politics in Washington State to get elected time after time – first in Thurston County where she served as Thurston County Auditor and later where she served as Washington’s Secretary of State.  Her predecessors in both those jobs were also Republican.

There’s no doubt in my mind that the Biden administration saw the competence with which she ran elections in Washington State.  But, she gained attention in 2020 by going on CNN and talking against President Trump.   Her honesty and integrity were on the line and out for everyone to see.

Kim was going to do what was right and was going to defend the voters and the voting system against all of those who would see it fail.

Kim is the last of the Liberal Republicans to hold political office in our state.  She followed several others such as Dan Evan, Ralph Munro, James Dolliver, Sam Reed and many more.  All gone now.

I always thought Kim had the ability to reach national prominence in government.  This is now her chance.  With luck and skill this reluctant politician will be able to calm the waters and bring some sanity back to our national election system.

Washington State is going to miss her and her way of doing politics.  So will I.
