BELLEVUE, WA – On Tuesday evening, notorious cult leader JZ Knight held a fundraiser at her home in Yelm for Democrat Mary Hall, who is running for Thurston County Auditor. You can see a copy of the invitation here.
JZ Knight, made news last year when she defamed Catholics, Jews, gays and Mexicans, in a video that surfaced after she made a $70,000 donation to the Washington State Democratic Party. Following this embarrassing episode for the Democrats, party Chairman Dwight Pelz had to give the money to charity.
In light of this newly revealed association between JZ Knight and Democrat Mary Hall, Washington State Republican Party (WSRP) Chair Susan Hutchison released the following statement:
“It is appalling that less than a year after Democrats were shamed by contributions from renowned bigot and racist JZ Knight, Democrat Mary Hall shows she has no scruples when it comes to campaign money. Hall wants to be Thurston County’s next auditor, a job which requires fairness and impartiality in overseeing elections. Hall’s profound lack of judgment shows that voters can’t trust her to run her campaign, much less her county’s elections.
“Republicans call on Mary Hall to follow the lead of her Party Chairman and decline the money. Otherwise voters must assume that Mary Hall shares the same bigoted views as the cult leader.”
