She may be elected to the House...

...but Cathy McMorris Rodgers isn't very representative of a lot of folks in her district. Publicola, via Carl...
...Republicans in the House, led by Washington State Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA, 5) are pushing an alternative proposal—which McMorris Rodgers, incredibly, said will protect “the true victims of domestic violence and sexual assault”—that does not provide any of the Senate version’s protections for Native American women, gay women, rural women, and some illegal immigrants. (The latter provision is aimed largely at protecting so-called child and mail-order brides brought into the country illegally and under false pretenses.)
It's noteworthy that in addition to vast tracts of rural land, McMorris Rodgers' district encompasses the reservations of the Consolidated Confederated Tribes (including the Sapoils, Nespelems, Okanagons, Sinkisuses, Nez Perces, Colvilles and Seijextees), the Spokane Tribe and the Kalispel Tribe.

Seems to me the gentle lady from the far side of the Cascade Curtain has a lot explaining to do to a lot of constituents.

It is the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation. that consists of the following 12 bands:
Wenatchi, Nespelem, Moses-Columbia, Methow, Colville, Southern Okanogan (Sinkisuse), Palus, San Poil, Eniat, Chelan, Nez Perce, Lake (Arrow Lakes). Don't mean to be so picky, but I have worked for the Tribes.

And yes, Mcmorris-Rogers is a horse's ass. I do wonder what her problem is. I wish we could dump her. She'd only be replaced with some other, probably worse, horse's ass, though. We don't have it easy in eastern Wash. Ugh.
