G.O.P. Couple Recruited Green Party Candidates


Filed at 1:53 p.m. ET

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) -- A prominent Republican couple helped put
Green Party candidates on the ballot in two important elections,
including one that will decide the balance of power in the
Washington state Legislature.

Democrats and Green Party activists claim the couple promoted the
Green Party candidates to help Republicans get elected.

Stan Shore, a longtime GOP strategist, organized a convention and
helped pay the filing fee for Young S. Han, 18, to run for a House
seat from Snohomish County. Shore also transferred $250 to Han's
campaign bank account to help him pay the filing fee, Han said.

Shore's wife, Leslie Donovan, a former Republican staff member,
helped persuade Michael Jepson, a 21-year-old computer-systems
operator, to run for King County Council and offered to pay his
filing fee, Jepson said.

The Olympia couple deny they were trying to sabotage the election.
They say they were working to help a struggling third party.

``I for sure want a Green Party candidate to win,'' said Shore.
``Maybe it's the difference between business and personal views.''

The House is deadlocked at 49-49. The Snohomish County seat is now
held by Republican Joe Marine, who is running against two
Democrats, a Libertarian and Han.

Democrats say a number of Republicans attended the Greens'
nominating conventions. Some Greens are also unhappy, saying their
party was hijacked.

The candidates say they didn't know they were being backed by

``Stan seemed like a really decent guy,'' said Han, who graduated
from high school last year and was a founding member of the state
Green Party. ``I thought he was a genuine guy who maybe wasn't a
Green, but he represented himself as someone who fights the

Donovan sent out e-mails trying to find a Green Party candidate for
King County Council, then met with Jepson and told him she would
help him pay his $979.07 filing fee, he said. A $1,000 check was
deposited in his account from a company that he did not recognize
on the day he filed, he said.

Both candidates say they plan to return the money the Republicans
gave them.

``This sort of backroom deal is exactly what people are angry about
in politics,'' said Jim Kainber, executive director of the state
Democratic Party.
