Double Dipping Doug Ericksen takes taxpayers’ money without working for it

March 1, 2017

Washington State Senator and Trump EPA appointee Doug Ericksen has put himself and his wallet before his constituents time and time again. That’s why he’s earned the nickname Double Dipping Doug. And, it’s time for us to call him out.

Here’s the skinny on Double Dipping Doug:

Ericksen is taking paychecks for two jobs (being a Washington State Senator and Trump’s EPA communications appointee) but isn’t performing his duties in the Senate. As of today, he has missed 32 Senate Committee meetings since mid-January. This seems pretty unethical, no?
