We should speak out against this secret giveaway

Am adding a link to the Evergreen Freedom Foundation down in the Reference section. They post fiscal information on government agencies, state and local. They are the folks who uncovered the hundreds of additional millions of dollars that Gov. Locke gave away to Boeing. Locke basically cut a secret deal - illegal and corrupt. EFF exposed it. Guess who makes up the lost taxes. The state won't fund public education but will fund a training facility for new hires at Boeing. Liberal or conservative, we should speak out against this secret giveaway.
