BELLEVUE – Chairman Heimlich released the following statement after “hundreds of millions of dollars” was stolen from the state in a Nigerian scam.

“In what seems like a story line straight out of a movie, Governor Inslee’s administration is once again forced to face their latest failure. The DOC released thousands of prisoners accidentally, Western State Hospital has been mismanaged for years resulting in the loss of $53 million in federal funding, 1,100 convicted criminals have been recently let back into our communities, and now this scandal:  Scammed by a Nigerian fraud scheme costing the taxpayers ‘hundreds of millions of dollars‘ while claims for hardworking Washingtonians go unfulfilled and unemployment numbers hit record highs.

No other state was susceptible to this level of fraud. Inslee and his hand-picked department heads continually mismanage our state. All of these failures are Inslee’s to own.

There is only one word to describe the Inslee administration: incompetent. The people of our great state deserve a chief executive that can lead, yet we continue to see Inslee mismanage everything from our state’s public safety to our finances.  Governor Inslee has been focused on his national political ambitions, running for President and governing by phone, making multiple appearance on CNN and MSNBC, and the people of Washington State have suffered under his utterly embarrassing management. 

This is truly a disgrace. Come November, Washingtonians have a clear choice: another four years of incompetent Inslee or we can elect a Republican Governor that will clean up our state.”

This is the time for citizens of this country to call to task the governor and the Democratic party machine for the gross incompetence and abhorrent abuse of our civil liberties which they wear as measures of social responsibilities and civil morals of their own description.
They do not deserve our vote. They are part of the global elite. Call Jay Inslee to task for the $100,000,000’s given to scammers from the pockets of taxpayers. He won’t be reaching into his own pocket. He’s campaigning for the White House and more of the same fleecing of taxpayers for the global elite.

Very disappointed that some folks now days don’t have any integrity nor they know the meaning of it… Back in the day, Idiotnslee would resign but he won’t!

He is a piece of crap and needs to be gone NOW.

How is this Inslees fault? Look to the ones with a hand in our unemployment that actually sent those payments to Nigeria! How do you not realize a routing number is for a bank overseas? Fire the whole lot of them!

Sure, go ahead and fire those responsible for mismanaging their agencies. But, this is completely Inslee’s fault and he should be fired as well! He is the executive in charge of this state, and everything that happens within the state agencies is ultimately his responsibility. There are no bad teams, only bad leaders!

And yet, somehow, this incompetent moron was re-elected. Even some counties that donated more to Trump than Biden “voted” to keep Inslee in office. Perhaps the old saw is right after all, it’s not those who vote that count, it’s those who count the votes.
