This Washington

More Tea Party Ties to McKenna

By Josh Feit September 23, 2011

Last week, we broke the news that one of Republican gubernatorial candidate Washington State Attorney General Rob McKenna's big donors was a major Tea Party donor. And we followed it up with a story that one of McKenna's consultants was an early activist in the Tea Party movement.

The significance of McKenna's connections to the Tea Party movement is that McKenna portrays himself as a moderate Republican.

Today, the reports that a local Tea Party activist is one of the hosts at an upcoming McKenna fundraiser in Seattle:
The afternoon event in Seattleā€™s International District is billed as an Asian Americans for Rob McKenna function. One of the sponsors is Suzanne Pak, the executive director of the conservative Song of Truth Foundation, and one of the organizers of an April Tax Day Rally in Bellevue.
