Political operative Ben Unger bought his way through the Democratic primary this year, and now he’s trying to buy his way into the state legislature with big campaign contributions from public employee unions, the Democratic caucus PAC and other Democratic candidate PACs, trial lawyers, unions and other PACs.
Secretary of State filings show that Unger’s campaign has brought in $220,000 so far, to Rep. Katie Eyre’s $137,000.
Oregon does not need another political operative in the legislature, one who will be a bought and paid for lapdog for the public employee unions and trial lawyers.
Rep. Katie Eyre is the only CPA in the Oregon House, and Oregon needs the fiscal responsibility and professional experience she brings to the legislature.
