Politics

Alice may be a great chef or even a great restaurant owner, However when she is the star of a political commercial she opens herself to criticism. Her commercial is BS. Alice doesn’t even serve spirits so a 27% tax doesn’t even affect her business. As a small business owner I would expect that she would want open competition for the best price? I guess not. Alice should stick to her business and stay out of politics

Small Business, Big Deception

I wholeheartedly agree with the review citing Alice Dietz’s deceptive political ad. As the reviewer mentions, Alice doesn’t even serve spirits so a 27% fee doesn’t even affect her business. And even if she did, this wouldn’t be in addition to, but rather in replace of the current 52% markup the state government charges. This means that if Ms. Dietz did sell spirits, she’d reap the benefit of a 25% savings. I, for one, would like to know how much she was paid to grossly mislead Washington residents, and by whom…beer manufacturers? State government? Liquor is big money, and both parties currently hold monopolies over the way liquor is sold in this state. Whoever it is, maybe they offered her a discount on her beer/wine orders?

Alice may have been counting on the protection of not having her restaurant listed on the commercial….that’s the only reason I can think of as to why she’d proudly make such deceptive statements. This ad was likely a lucrative venture for her, enough so that she willingly put the reputation and financial security of The Brits and her staff on the line.

Sometimes it’s terrible food that runs off customers. Sometimes it’s terrible service. In this case, I believe it to be the unconscionable greed and behavior of Ms. Alice Dietz. I sincerely hope that whatever payment you accepted for your misleading the public was worth it.
