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.

Steve Bannon
Friends, President Elect Donald Trump made a huge statement by selecting Steve Bannon as his chief strategist. And not a good one. Steve Bannon is not a person who can help unify our country. He has spent his career defending the fringe of the Republican Party. He has openly promoted racism, misogyny and xenophobia. The alt-right should not be walking the halls of the White House or have a direct line to the President. This is just downright frightening. I stand with the Anti-Defamation League, the Council on American-Islamic Relations and the People for the American Way in denouncing President-elect Trump’s appointment of Steve Bannon. In Washington state, our diversity is one of our strengths. I want communities of color and all marginalized communities to know I am going to continue to stand with them to ensure that even if the President-elect does not believe in inclusiveness, at least their Member of Congress does. I have had enough. The fear spreading through our communities wa
Larsen & Murray Introduce Bill to Improve Transportation Services for Rural Veterans
WASHINGTON, D.C.—Rep. Rick Larsen (WA-02) and U.S. Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) joined Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) and Congressman Mac Thornberry (R-TX) to introduce bipartisan, bicameral legislation to help rural veterans get to and from their medical appointments more easily. The Rural Veterans Transportation Enhancement Act will make permanent three successful initiatives that provide veterans living in rural areas with transportation services and reimbursement for their travel to VA medical facilities.  Not only do these initiatives ease the burden for veterans traveling lengthy distances for care, but they have proven to save taxpayer dollars and reduce the number of missed medical appointments at VA. This legislation will also streamline the certification process for volunteers who step forward to help transport veterans to their appointments. “Veterans should not have to worry about how to get to their health care appointments, but too often travel is a real burden, especially
One Week Ago
Friends – I know many of you are feeling disappointed and dispirited from the election. It still hurts that a week ago, Donald Trump became our President-elect. Trump’s rhetoric has left some of our friends and neighbors scared. Scared that their families may be separated. Scared that our progress as a nation may be impeded. Scared that they may no longer have a place in this great country. I hear that anxiety and fear. I will stand up and fight hateful rhetoric, decisions and actions from President-elect Trump. That starts today. I have strong differences with the incoming administration. But I am committed to working together where I can, and resisting where I must. The state of our country calls me to action. We must start today. We must start the work of building coalitions to be prepared for the next fight. Please stand with me today as our work is clearly not done. Rick
Larsen Statement on Trump Administration Decision to End DACA
WASHINGTON, D.C.—Rep. Rick Larsen (WA-02) today released the following statement after reports that President Trump decided to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, with a six-month delay in enforcement.  “If reports are true that the administration will delay ending DACA for six months, then Congress must act soon and pass legislation to make the program permanent. The administration is not off the hook, however. It still must sign a bill Congress passes. I will work to get a bill that maintains this vital program on the administration's desk.” Larsen is a cosponsor of the American Hope Act of 2017, a bill that aims to protect Dreamers and DACA recipients from deportation and gives them the opportunity to apply for residency status if certain requirements are met.   ###
