I sure do appreciate your excellent attention to details and unwinding the election mystery for us.
We'll see whether LaWall will actually investigate the claims. If she's reluctant to do so because she has to work with the Board of Supervisors, she should. If WALL DOESN;T DO HER JOB, DEFEAT HERE NEXT ELECTION. WE NEED AN HONEST, TRUTHFUL DA IN TUCSON.
We also know a little bit more about the donors. Besides Arizonans for a Brighter Future, which put more than $97,000 into the campaign, the Restoring Pride committee also received dollars from auto-dealer Jim Click ($25,000), as well as $10,000 from a group of shopping centers owned by Republican National Committeeman Bruce Ash.
Lets see Jim Click has multiple car dealers in Tucson, who charges the high prices for repairs and funnel money to the Republicans to screw you.
We must start understanding who we buy from and deal with. Why pay for our demise with Jim Click dealerships. Go to others. Click was a big donator to G. Bush when he was President. Boycott Click auto dealers go elsewhere.
And who did they get the $11 million from? The Center to Protect Patient Rights is a 501(c)(4) run by Sean Noble, a former congressional aide and a GOP political strategist who aided Adams in his congressional campaign. The Center for Patient Rights, according Bloomberg.com, moved more than $30 million to other Republican-leaning nonprofits and political groups in the 2010 election cycle.
THESE GUYS ARE THE CROOKS THAT RUN OR HAVE RUN ARIZONA. THEY HELP SENILE BREWER MAKE HER DECISIONS.
PEOPLE AND VOTERS OF ARIZONA. WE MUST CLEAN UP ARIZONA OF THE CROOKED REPUBLICANS AND THE TEA PARTY. SO FAR THEY HAVE YOU FOOLED WITH LIES.
Nice going Jim! I've been wondering who was behind all this strange money, and you've done a great job of lifting the curtain. Keep up the good research!
Carmona is really taking the hits on LIES and nasty ADS just before the election. This is the only way Republican have a chance to win. LIE LIE LIE If the republicans win it will be by LIES and crooked taitics.
During televised senate hearings, Kyl more than once showed himself to be a bit unhinged to the point that I wondered about his mental state. Maybe that is why he is retiring even. McCain is MCain is McCain. We all used to warm to his plain spoken conservatism and compare him to Barry Goldwater. But as my retired native-born AZ neighbor once said, "He's a carpetbagger who married rich and determined AZ would be a stepping stone to national offices and celebrity as a politician." Gabby Giffords and her people are so much more real, and that includes Ron Barber, who took a real bullet.
Kyl and McCain are the dishonest ones.
McCain and Kyl are true traitors to Carmona. But McCain is really showing it right now, telling LIES like Romney continues to do.
And Tea Party McSally continues the ads with all the lies in them. That is the way of Republicans. LIE< LIE, LIE.
Republican Frank Antenori has been AGAINST AZ and the people ever since he has served. He is a import from another state, where he could not win. So he is in AZ spreading his poison. Defeat this guy and send him back to his home town.
Yeah... God's going to punish the U.S. for abortion but not slavery, Jim Crow, the genocide of American Indians, internment of Japanese-Americans and so on and so on... Get a grip.
Antenori told me four years ago,at the Clean Elections forum during his first legislative race, that his health insurance was provided by Tricare, which he had earned and for which he paid premiums and co-pays. If I'm not mistaken, Tricare is " government-run health care" [his term] which he abhors, presumably when not earned by him. And he became very defensive when asked the question about the source of his insurance after having pontificated against any kind of right to health care in the forum's Q&A.
A few weeks ago in a forum hosted by Pima Council on Aging, he said he gets his health insurance through his employment with Raytheon, a company he described Tuesday at the Shanty as 'government subsidized private industry'. With either provider our anti-government hero is being insured by public funds. He's got choices, neither of which involves self-insurance or doing without, and he's quite content. Okay for him, why not for the rest of us? Frank appears to be so narcissistic that he cannot or will not see the inconsistencies in his political principles. What principles, you might say? What's good for Frank is good for everyone, even if it's not accessible to everyone.
pro lifers get out the vote, its time to defend the kids. its a child, not a choice. the pro-abortion media wants to run down all prolifers like Paton and Anternori disrespectfully,
they have the attitude problem. let us pray, if we dont stop the baby killing, the hand of God will punish, we need the blessing, not the curse.
If you're a Dem, whether you're in Kirkpatrick's or Bradley's district or not, it's time to get out and volunteer or support them financially. There's no time to waste. To donate, google their names to find their official websites. To find volunteer opportunities, go through their websites, or contact the Pima County Dems at 520-326-3716.
Paton and Antenori simply CANNOT nor SHOULD NOT be elected to office. Just because Ann has an off day at the time of the Republic's interview shouldn't disqualify her from serving. That is no reason to swing in Paton's corner. Look at her overall endorsements from the people and organizations in the district that truly count - not some newspaper. The district is heavily Native American, and they support her.
Newspaper endorsements are overrated and based on single interviews. Not really a fair judge of a candidate. One only look at the AZ Daily Star endorsements. The obvious exclusion of the most qualified candidates left off the endorsement lists in some instances - for instance, Andrea Dalessandro in LD2 - was laughable.
A candidate should be judged on previous record (as in these two races), performances in public forums and debates, public, as well as, private positions on the issues and their perceived (or in all of these candidate's backgrounds) effectiveness, openness and availability to their constituents and ability to listen help solve their problems.
(I think you can cross Frank Antenori off that list right now. He was my LD 30 Rep and Senator. I know what he's like to have as a "representative" in Phoenix, and it isn't pretty.)
If Colonel McSally is against being divided as Republicans and Democrats, then why is she running under the Republican label and spouting the Republican party line [see her guest commentary on this site]? She should have run as an independent but she can't because she is not independent but red through and through. Sounds like sour grapes because she cannot come up with an impressive list of supporters from the opposite party as Congressman Barber did.
Having no exposure other than name recognition, I eagerly awaited the debate between Carmona & Flake. What a disappointment! The primary issue of this election is the economy/deficit/debt. I fault KUAT for not asking any questions on these issues. I know politicians don't want to talk about this, but until joulnalists pin them down, we the citizens get nothing. The Senate has not passed a budget in 4 yrs & will be key to the fiscal cliff. The debate seemed more like free tv ad for Carmona to bash Flake. Anything else was typical talking points any competent high school student could do. What a waste of my time.
I wonder who was teaching logic at the Air Force Academy back in the mid 1980s. According to that professor's prize pupil Cadet McSally, Republicans supporting a Democrat is a sign of the 'petty politics of division'. I suspect that professor might rather see it as an indication that people can come together across and in spite of party lines in order better to pursue the goal of the best representation for the community. And isn't the Colonel claiming that it's a good thing when people cross those party lines in her direction? I'm sure she can think straighter than this, can't she? While she's figuring out whether Libertarians, Greens, Republicans, Democrats, Independents and those mysterious Others working together for the common good is positive or negative, I'm voting for Congressman Ron Barber to continue representing me and all of us in Congress.
Martha McSally is the female counterpart the last bozo to run against Barber. The guy was so bad I don't even remember his name. Vote Democratic party and we all win.
It is easy to cross over, esp. if the candidate is a Tea party member. There only mission is to destroy this nation and our way of life. They are the new American Taliban in the USA.
