Re: “The Skinny

“…unless you want someone in the job who is focusing on suppressing the vote and ignoring state law.”

I’m pretty sure that is part of the “job description” for the current governor, his like-minded state legislators and anyone else who is working with his administration.

Wow - the Goldwater Institute trying to keep a new industry out of Arizona? What's wrong with this picture?

Re: “The Skinny

The same can be said to you Duke. Did you shout down Hillary when she spoke with a black dialogue in the South? Or when she tried to convince some kids from the hood that her purse was full of hotsauce while we all knew it, and she was full of bs? You are enabling her.

Re: “The Skinny

Nonsense, Congresswoman. Unless you OPPOSE Trump, you are enabling him. But we all know you try to play both sides. Both sides of your rich donors!

Re: “The Skinny

Liar who? Without releasing tax records or offering any real-life policies, Trump is potentially the far larger liar. Ronald Reagan said it best, "Trust, but verify." Trump verifies nothing! He whines and insults and manipulates encounters with real policymakers. Anyone who refuses to be vetted for the highest office in our nation is neither honest nor truthful.

Re: “The Skinny

The Liary you know or the Trump that is risky, capitalism is about risk and socialist Obamaism is about dependency and bankruptcy! To the businessman, so you want the Supreme Court to be packed with pro-Union leftist anti business Justices?

Re: “The Skinny

Trump, Trump, Trump, ad nauseum. Today Trump talk was nonstop on TV "news" getting free publicity for hours and hours; it is still going on late into the evening. It seems like a media malpractice, not covering anything or anyone else except this media monster at work. Although he lost the last election, I completely agree with Mitt Romney insisting that Trump release those tax records like everyone else does, something Trump refuses to do before the election. People with nothing to hide don't do this unless they are distorting or fabricating or lying about something, and with regard to truth and values Trump makes Nixon look like a polygraph.

Re: “The Skinny

Please note the complete lack of class shown by Ann Day's successor in acknowledging the woman's death... as with everything Ally Miller does, she made it all about Ally Miller. The woman is like school in summertime.

Re: “The Skinny

I'll skip the lengthy inventory of Trump's glaring inadequacies and simply say McSally is doing the smart thing. I hope she continues holding off supporting Trump. The Vichy wing of the GOP will be remembered as such.

Re: “The Skinny

As a long time sane Republican and successful businessman I cannot support Trump for anything. He's a joke as a business executive, inheriting and conning his way before weak regulators and the IRS. I urge you to stay out of the GOP avalanche for him. Keep your powder dry and yourself safe for after the election, whether Clinton or Trump wins. The Congress is where to stalemate has to break with intelligent compromises. No more grandstanding. BTW I am a voting, contributing Republican.

Zona Politics resumes June 26 or July 24? There is no Sunday July 26. Just checking for our Blog for Arizona calendar.

Re: “The Skinny

My concern...a baseball stadium that WE pay for; Kino Hospital that was sold so WE wouldn't have to pay for its upkeep. On the other hand, the Goldwater Institute would be an insult to the man after whom it is named. Pima County has a habit of living in the "believe it and they will come" world, only they never come. If you want to do something real for Tucson build a high speed rail to Phoenix and then they will come and go.

I don't know if anybody would have complained had you fixed the roads and not raised property taxes.

Incompetence abounds Mr Huckleberry.

Re: “The Skinny

I live in the County, and so the widening project does not affect me directly. BUT... I think the money could be better spent repairing the City's STREETS, rather than adding many miles of NEW street that will also not be maintained.

The last time I traversed Broadway over the route to be expanded at 'rush hour', traffic moved smoothly, impeded only by traffic signals, which could be better sequenced. But it was NOT slowed to a stop because there was no place to go.

This whole project should be re-thought, and postponed until needed.

Re: “The Skinny

Or, could it be that income levels in Tucson are such that there are no "local donors" willing to buy influence. Somebody has to.

Re: “The Skinny

It's clear to any thinking person that, in CD races, campaign donations are directly correlated to out-of-state ownership of the candidate. Sadly, our clueless State parties don't get this; they are, in fact, the pimps for these soiled doves. Congressman Grijalva, who gets no big money for his campaigns, is generally dismissed by the Party apparatchiks . . . and he votes his own way. I would guess that this is why he supports Steele. She's not for sale either.

Re: “The Skinny

McCain decoy, Alex Meluskey chose a known felon as his Senate Primary campaign manager in February of 2015. A records check would have shown PT Burton had been convicted of kidnapping & Armed Robbery. Did Meluskey read PT Burton’s LinkedIn Profile listing Burton as Senior Marketing Director for Shane Krauser Enterprises? (Krauser was a Maricopa County Prosecutor convicted of mass Fraud in 2014). Meluskey’s 2015 AZ Corporation Commission (ACC) application of record links him to Robert Morris Group (RMG) President Craig Bergman, Director Joel Frewa & RMG “Corporate Partner” PT Burton. https://www.linkedin.com/in/pt-burton-3588… http://ecorp.azcc.gov/Details/Corp?corpid=…
Remember Burton engineered a 2015 Scottsdale Resort fraud, stealing thousands from Tea Partiers. Note Bergman and Frewa (RMG officers) call themselves “victims and witnesses” of the fraud, but neither man lost a dime. And RMG Director Joel Frewa (Meluskey’s Communications Director and a Krauser employee) was Burton’s friend and roommate all during the 3-month-long 2015 Resort fraud.

Why did Meluskey ignore “Director” Burton’s (Linkedin) working with known felon Shane Krauser?
In 2014 (as Meluskey admitted printing false election slates to steal seats in Precinct 59 Bronco) County Prosecutor Shane Krauser was publicly admitting stealing $2.07 million from AZ investors.
http://www.azcc.gov/Divisions/Administrati…
http://www.bizjournals.com/phoenix/news/20…

Craig Bergman, President of RMG, is Meluskey’s new Campaign Chairman. Frewa, Director of East Coast Operations at RMG, is Meluskey’s communications Director. Burton was “corporate partner” at RMG and was Meluskey’s Director & Campaign Chair. All were part of the Bergman, RMG, Krauser “Liberty Enterprise” network of talk radio, fire arms training, legal service, publishing agencies and “Liberty” Companies that spawned the 3 month Liberty Promotions Scottsdale Resort Fraud.

Meluskey supposedly “fired” PT Burton, after his 2015 Krauser Liberty Promotions’ paid-for non-event at Scottsdale Resort. But Burton’s Linked-In Profile as Meluskey “National Campaign Advisor” admits Meluskey was (and has always been) controlled by the same Craig Bergman, Judd Saul, Joel Frewa, Shane Krauser network – all interconnected with Liberty Companies and the Robert Morris Group.
https://www.linkedin.com/in/pt-burton-3588… http://www.robertmorrisgroup.com/our-peopl…

Why do criminal connections matter? Why does McCain-decoy-Meluskey carelessness matter?
Will anyone vote for a candidate who surrounds himself with criminals? We already have one.
And we know many Senate Primary campaigns are exercises in criminal contempt for their voters.

McCain DC allies like Senator Lindsey Graham “invest” millions to weaken State Primary opposition. Graham is a Director of McCain’s “Reform Institute Super PAC”. Graham’s “West Main Street Values PAC” and McCain’s “Reform Institute” have been exchanging secret campaign money for decades.
Graham spent over two million to arrange 6 Republican decoys in his (2014) South Carolina Primary. http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archiv…

Frauds like McCain and Graham pay frauds like Meluskey to deceive their own voters every 6 years. Meluskey has spent a half million according to FEC reports, but no real source for the money is listed.
Tee shirts, signs, TV ads and resort conventions do not hurt McCain or Graham, but if they convince enough Republican voters that decoys like Meluskey are real candidates, the frauds will always win.

Re: “The Skinny

Am I suppose to be impressed that out-of-state big money interests are flooding the coffers of puppet McSally so they can pull her strings and do their bidding? All the more reason for Arizonans to support Victoria Steele.
