What is Vanalstine Enterprises and why is so little known?

by Jeremy Hooper

If one ventures over the public disclosure site for the state of Washington, one will see that the coalition hoping to take away certain citizens' fairly granted civil rights paid a form $14k+ for the purposes of signature gathering:

Only thing? This firm, Vanalstine Enterprises, is enough to everyone—most of all, Google. In fact, the listed address brings up a UPS store…

…which tells me that this company is really operating from a P.O. Box.

So what is this "Enterprise"? Well, my theory is that is has something to do with a local evangelical entrepreneur who does have that last name. I've put a request into that gentleman for more information, so I don't really want to speculate too much until I get confirmation or denial. But I will say, based on both his wide range of businesses and his stated religious priorities (coupled with the unique name and specific location), I would guess that he is the one to whom I need to talk.

The prevailing truth, regardless of how my conjecture shakes out, is that Washington state residents should know who is working to overturn a law that was passed by the people-instated legislature and signed by the people-elected governor. Petition gathering efforts, by their nature, tend to be met with some raised eyebrows. It would be in Protect Marriage Washington's interest to cultivate a more transparent process rather than one steered by an unGoogleable P.O. box.
