Election 2012: Local delegation @ Democratic convention

September 2, 2012 at 12:28 pm | In West Seattle news, West Seattle politics | 4 Comments

The photo of the Washington spot on the Democratic National Convention venue’s floor in Charlotte, NC, was shared by 34th District Democrats vice chair Marcee Stone. She notes that she is one of 10 members of the 34th Dems who are at the convention – along with Zack Barker, Karl de Jong, Robert Fuentes, Ann Martin, Dr. Lisa Plymate, and Chris Porter, plus two who Stone says are on committees, State Rep. Joe Fitzgibbon and Lorin Walker. (Added: Rep. Fitzgibbon says another local Democrat is there, Lorena Gonzalez.) Dr. Plymate preceded this with a visit to the Republican National Convention as part of a bus tour with Doctors For America, which is going to both conventions to advocate for health-care affordability, as Jerry Large of The Seattle Times (WSB partner) wrote last week. (DfA is also going to the DNC.) The convention is scheduled to be livestreamed here. (RNC highlights are online here.)

  1. And don’t forget, you need to show ID to get into the convention area.

  2. …but should not have to show a state-issued photo ID to exercise your sacred right to vote, if you are already a registered voter in any of the several states blatantly trying to steal votes from Democrtatic candidates.
    This is the face, heart and soul of today’s Republican party—-beyond belief, beneath contempt, shameful if they had any sense of shame.

  4. You only need to show your credential. Not the same as a state-issued ID.
