Larsen sacks aides after Tweets reveal boozy office antics


Congressman Rick Larsen has fired three aides after learning of their indiscreet tweets bragging about on-the-job drinking and insulting their boss. The Democratic Representative in Washington sacked the trio - Seth Burroughs, Elizabeth Robblee and Ben Byers - shortly after a report by the online NW Daily Marker outlined their Twitter feeds from August to early December.

Announcing Support for WA Initiative to Remove Dark Money from Politics
Rep. Rick Larsen Announces Support for Washington Initiative to Remove Dark Money from Politics EVERETT, WA - Rep. Rick Larsen (WA-2), a long-time supporter of efforts to overturn the Supreme Court’s ruling on Citizens United, today announcement his endorsement of Washington State Initiative 735, which would put a proposal on the November ballot urging passage of a constitutional amendment to do the same. The measure urges the Washington state congressional delegation to propose a federal constitutional amendment clarifying that constitutional rights belong only to individuals, not corporations; that spending money is not free speech under the First Amendment; that governments are fully empowered to regulate political contributions and expenditures to prevent undue influence; and that political contributions and expenditures must be promptly disclosed to the public. The measure would urge the legislature to ratify such an amendment. “Now more than ever, we must come together as De
Love Trumps Hate
Friends – I still cannot believe it. Donald Trump was in Everett yesterday. Why? Trump actually believes he will win Washington. He even said so in his speech last night. We know that his hate-filled rhetoric was not welcome and will not be rewarded on Election Day in our state. Before he spoke, I joined a passionate crowd at Clark Park. Please take the time to watch a video of my remarks at the ‘No Hate in Our State’ Rally. We must continue to stand for everything that Trump has been working against. We need to send a strong message that there is no place in Washington state or the White House for his hate. Thank you for your continued support. Rick
It is Time for Congress to Act
Today, I am proud to join my colleagues in the U.S. House of Representatives to demand that the GOP bring sensible legislation to a vote that prevents gun violence in this country. The people of Washington’s 2nd District and the American people at large are demanding that we do something to address gun violence. I am calling on Members on both sides of the aisle to work with me on gun violence prevention: to ban military-style assault weapons, lift the ban on federally funded research into the causes of gun violence, and strengthen our system of background checks. Join the conversation on Twitter and Facebook by reacting, commenting, and sharing my post about the sit in. These policies would not prevent every massacre but they would give law enforcement more tools to prevent killings, provide lawmakers with a better understanding of firearm-related homicide and suicide, and limit the amount of damage that maniacs who want to kill us can inflict. No single law can prevent the actio
Food Assistance, Impact Aid & Protections for LGBT Contractors Among Aims of Larsen-Led Effort to Shape Annual Defense Spending Bill
WASHINGTON, D.C.—Rep. Rick Larsen (WA-02) urged the Chairmen and Ranking Members of the House and Senate Armed Services Committees to adopt provisions pertaining to the accessibility of military food assistance programs, increased support for education programs for military families, and protection of LGBT federal contractors – among other priorities – in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). In a letter, Larsen specifically called for language clarifying that Women, Infants and Children (WIC) food assistance programs can operate on military bases and for an increase in federal support for school districts near military bases through Impact Aid funding.
