The citizen voted for an INDEPENDENT commission, not a faux-interdependent wife of a Democratic strategist who has donated to Democratic candidates and organizations in the past. Mathis is an embaressment to the political process, and deserves a speedy removal from the commission.
And I am sick of all these talk of recalls, from either party. If we are going to just recall politicians after one year in office, why do we even have terms? Politicians from either party will be afraid to address and vote on major issues out of the fear they will be recalled without ample time to prepare their campaigns.
Are you forgetting the fact that Colleen Mathis lied on her application when she called herself an independent? Her husband is a Democratic fundraiser and she herself also lied when she said she had not contributed to any political organizations/candidates, when she actually donated to Democrat Andrei Cherney and Arizona List PAC. Plus, her political think tank, Strategic Telemetry, had clients such as President Obama, Senator Kerry, and Governor Brown, all Democrats.
Now I agree that if she would have been a Republican, she would not be placed with these charges, she still lied about her Independent status, and violated the integrity of the "INDEPENDENT" Commission
