BELLEVUE – Chairman Heimlich released the following statement after recent news of Washington State being scammed out of $650 million to $1 billion by a Nigerian fraud scheme.

“Why aren’t Democrats holding Employment Security Department Commissioner Suzi LeVine accountable after her office left us vulnerable and ultimately scammed out of up to $1 BILLION dollars in taxpayer money?

Commissioner LeVine, and her husband Eric, donated more than $50,000 to Jay Inslee, Bob Ferguson, and Democratic state legislators. Now they’re all looking the other way while the people of Washington State are hurting. The incompetence by the Inslee administration and their lack of accountability is disgraceful.

Even Oregon Governor Kate Brown demanded accountability and fired their state employment director and their problems paled in comparison to Washington’s.

It’s time for accountability in state government. It’s time for new leadership.”

I am one of these Washingtonians hurting. Someone needs to be held accountable. It is my money I have paid into the system. When will I see MY money? Or will I EVER! Zero answers and cryptic information. Unacceptable!!!

    I am so tired of knowing people waiting 10plus weeks for their money. Me and my daughter are going on week 6. We are high risk and our job, housecleaning, doesn’t have a way to work from home or social distant. We need help as we can’t go back to work until phase 4. Just even trying to get a answer or help is ridiculous

    Who is the RNC in Washington state endorsing for Governor? There is a long list of Republican and Independent candidates on the primary list! I believe this is done intentionally to dilute the conservative vote! I personally like Tim Eyman and Loren Culp! We need to band together and pick one so the cote isn’t spread out over the candidates! Thank you

On Monday I filed a petition for writ of mandamus listing commissioner LeVine as the respondent. I’m going to hold her accountable. Thursday she was served at her house. Friday another group of lawyers served her.

There are tools to hold our leaders accountable for their actions most people don’t know they are there.

This is shameful and negligent. She should be held accountable along with Gov. Inslee. Go to jail.
