Washington State House of Representatives
Dear Rep-elect Short,
I can't tell you how great it feels to have such a godly woman in the state legislature. I'm even more heartened to see that the voters gave you a mandate to fulfil Our Lord and Savior's wishes by passing godly legislation. And let no one be mistaken; it was a mandate. The voters knew you were endorsed by Faith & Freedom and the Human Life PACs. They also saw you quoting the commandments in your campaign emails.
But as happy as I am to see you in the legislature, I hope you use it as a stepping stone for much greater things. You seem to have what it takes to join the Republican caucus in Congress or the US Senate. You definitely have that Ted Steven's touch in your family. Your husband, Mitch, demonstrated that when he plead guilty on Friday to charges that he had liberated thousands of dollars from the Stevens County Fair Board.
And as the Spokane Spokesman Review noted, you also have the fiscally-conservative money-management skills that have become so identified with Republican governance:
...court records showed she faced a $36,000 IRS lien, a state tax warrant for another $1,000, and a $12,000 judgment for delinquent credit-card debt. She was also nearly $2,500 behind on property taxes. A 2007 lawsuit by an employee over back wages also included a promissory note from Mitch Short acknowledging he owed the woman more than $9,000.Now, to paraphrase out Antichrist-elect, that is more of the same we can use.
Heterosexually yours in a chaste, biblical, and non-Vitter kind of way,
Gen. JC Christian, patriot
