Having thoroughly researched the two candidates for Governor of the State of Washington. I've come to the conclusion that I can NOT in good faith cast a vote for either of them.
I feel this so strongly, knowing that it's a close race, that I don't want to find myself the deciding vote approving either of these candidates.
So... Since I can't go with either candidate it'd be completely irresponsible not to at least offer some solution to the issue. I'm going to offer myself as a write in candidate.
My legal qualifications? Quite honestly... I have exactly the same legal qualifications as the current Governor of California had when he ran. This equates out to... not a whole lot.
But... I'm willing to fulfil the position if elected. I just don't really have much of a chance.
But if you're stymied and don't really want to vote for Gregoire or Rossi, then write in "Andrei A. Freeman" (I'd just love to get more than one vote ;)
I suppose you need a campaign promise. Um... I'll work to return the penalty for online gambling from a class C Felony back to a misdemeanour.
