Amend or not to Amend
Interesting debated on whether to amend the constitution to prevent any kind of money to be given to WEA-PAC. This includes funds used to pay for administration fees. The controversy is the fact that some of the money transferred was used by the WEA-PAC to support the successful election of Gov. Gregoire. Although it is up to any association, not just WEA, to use money in the same fashion, there is a motion to amend the WEA constitution to police ourselves from helping the WEA-PAC. Currently, if this passes, the amount of money required to fund the administration of the WEA-PAC would leave little to actually be effective. I believe the old adage, "Cutting off the nose to spite the face" illustrates the ludicrousness here.
