ELECTION RESULTS: Tim is glad, Seattle’s Stranger is sad — voters waking up and rejecting socialism.
VOTERS REPUDIATE INSLEE’S NEW CAPITAL GAINS INCOME TAX.
Wed, Nov 3rd, 2021
So great to see so many friends at the Bellevue Hyatt last night.
Lots of smiles and hugs.
Here’s my victory remarks posted on Facebook last night:
What’s especially amazing is the county-by-county results:
In 11 counties, over 80% of voters rejected it.
In 23 counties, over 60% rejected it.
In 5 counties, the vote was over 50%.
And in 1 county (Jefferson), the reject vote was 48%.
51% of King County voters rejected it.
But after digging into the precinct-by-precinct numbers, I learned that in non-Seattle King County, the reject vote was 62%.
Such an overwhelming public vote against this new income tax clearly supercharges Rep. Jim Walsh’s Initiative 1408 campaign which explicitly repeals this tax and all future income-based taxes.
Here is Jim’s statement about the vote last night:
“Congrats to the people of Washington for making such a clear and decisive statement. Tonight’s overwhelming ‘Repealed’ decision on Advisory Vote 37 proves — once again — that voters hate income taxes of any kind. The people of Washington are fiscally conservative. If my colleagues in the legislature ignore this clear mandate, the people will respond.”
It’s clear the voters are waking up and rejecting socialism.
And Seattle’s liberal newspaper the Stranger is realizing that too:
We’re moving full steam ahead on Jim Walsh’s anti-income-tax initiative (I-1408) here and 7 Election Integrity Initiatives in 7 key swing states.
While I’m fighting to help our state and our nation with my initiative efforts, help me fight back against Fascist Fergie by donating to my legal defense fund so I can appeal the AG’s ridiculously unconstitutional restrictions on the First Amendment:

Don’t let the guy who robbed us of our $30 tabs get away with this:
As you know, we worked really hard on Initiative 976:
And now, a message from Sid Maietto and Larry Jensen:
We’re asking folks to donate to our PAC so we can stop all current and future income-based taxes with Jim Walsh’s Initiative 1408:
