Our Democracy At Work

From a Letter by Jan Steinman

It appears that I-522 has failed. Enjoying overwhelming support just six weeks ago, the numbers dropped in direct proportion to the money spent. We appear to have the best democracy money can buy.


(Monsanto and the GMA spent millions to make sure Prop 522 failed–editor’s note.)

    By mistake, I deleted this comment–but Rick was kind enough to send it to me again:


    This what I sent to the WA Attorney General and posted:

    We appear to have the best democracy money can buy.

    Comment sent to Washington State’s Attorney General:

    In addition to the punishment points raised in Jan Steinman’s letter to Washington State’s Attorney General, I suggest adding the following to point number 1:

    “The costs of the nullification and re-vote will be borne by the GMA and its constituents and will be required to be shown as a loss to net profit and not as a business loss or operating cost. Any costs and fines associated with your successful prosecution of the GMA will be handled in like manner.”

    I know full well that these cost will eventually be passed on to consumers, but those consumers will be universal and not Washington State alone.

    I would also like to see the donors and the donation amount of both California and Washington’s unsuccessful ballot measure made part of any subsequent Voter Information Packet, thereby alerting voters of future petitions to know of the corporate illegalities previously used. It would be wonderful if an future states’ ballot information contain such language also.

    I suggest Forum members also submit comments to the Attorney General.

    This appears in Organic Farming –

    and on Healthy Foods –

    I thought it was in a few more places but I can’t find them. Jan Steinman’s original letter and suggestions – http://foodfreedomgroup.com/2013/11/06/prosecute-the-grocery-mfg-assn/

    Hope some of this helps. Best-
