A new website critical of Washington state Gov. Jay Inslee – ‘StopUsBeforeWeTaxAgain.com’ – launched Thursday to remind voters of the many times Inslee pledged during the 2012 campaign to oppose (and even veto) new taxes in the state budget.
“Jay Inslee was not honest with Washington voters,” the one-page site proclaims right from the top, bold text that sits above a manipulated image in which Inslee’s nose is elongated to resemble a cultural icon of dishonesty, Pinocchio.
“Taxes according to ‘Jay-nocchio’,” is stamped on the Governor’s photo, and his face is surrounded by tax-related quotes taken from public debates during last year’s gubernatorial race against former Attorney General Rob McKenna.
It is not clear who or what group paid for the website. A search through the Internet WHOIS database indicated the site’s registration has been made private.
