One more thing about Karen Veldheer

How weird is it that she links to her family businesses on her campaign website?

What is so weird about it?

I think because there might not be a specific rule or law against it, using campaign donations to benefit your own bank account is at least morally wrong.

She's using a website paid for by her campaign to advertise her private business. Its shady.

Here's the actual RCW:

While it doesn't prohibit what she does, it does imply that campaigns and campaign funds aren't supposed to be a personal benefit to the candidate.

I am curious as to why this is so shady.

It is out in the open: Karen is demonstrating her business acumen by presenting her businesses to the public.

I'm guessing she just doesn't know any better.
