Representative Marie Glusenkamp Perez: Anything BUT A Moderate

CAMAS, WA – On Wednesday, Fox News reported that the Pritzker family, owners of the Hyatt Hotels Corporation, has been a major donor to a number of groups participating in the anti-Semitic protests sweeping US college campuses. 

In addition to funding these groups, the Pritzkers have also made significant donations to vulnerable Democrats facing difficult re-election battles this year. One incumbent who received money was Representative Marie Gluesenkamp Perez. 

When asked for comment, a spokesperson for the Perez campaign gave the following statement: “Marie is a steadfast supporter of Israel’s right to defend itself and led the Defending Borders, Defending Democracies Act in Congress to provide vital military aid to Israel in its fight against Hamas and Iran. She opposes political violence and angry mobs whether organized by the far-left or far-right.”

Representative Perez is NOT a big supporter of Israel, as evidenced by her own blog posts defending Hezbollah. She is also NOT opposed to political violence or angry mobs, as evidenced by reports that she and her husband aided ANTIFA by fixing their tear gas-spreading leaf blowers during the 2020 “Summer of Love” riots in Portland.

Upon reading this report, Leslie Lewallen made the following statement: “Once again, Portland Perez has shown her true colors. While she masquerades as a moderate in the district, her true beliefs show through in her voting record, her actions and her writings. She has voted against securing the border, against parental rights, against small businesses, and against our Second Amendment rights. There should be no confusion on this point – if she gets another term in office her voting record will become more and more extreme as she sides with the far Left elements of the Democratic Party. There is only one Republican in this race who can defeat Representative Perez, and I invite the voters of WA-03 to join me. There is too much at stake in this election to repeat the mistakes of 2022.”
