Check out who's paying Abel's bills

“Follow the money trail” can tell you a lot about a candidate for public office and to whom they owe their allegiance.
State House of Representatives candidate Kim Abel has accepted thousands of dollars from five Washington Indian tribes.
One of her tribal contributors received exclusive use of 200 feet of our Port Orchard waterfront thanks to a backroom deal with the well noted Port of Bremerton.
Interestingly, current Port of Bremerton Commissioner Bill Mahan and former Commissioner Mary Ann Huntington have helped bankroll Kim Abel's campaign, too.
Connect the dots. These folks pursue their own personal agendas and not in the best interests of their constituents.
