Is Today Bundgaard's Last Day as Senate Majority Leader?

Posted By on Thu, Mar 10, 2011 at 11:50 AM

James King from the Phoenix New Times seems to think so:

State Senate Majority Leader Scott Bundgaard may have staved off being ousted from his leadership position when he met with Senate Republicans yesterday to explain his involvement in last month's alleged domestic-violence incident, but sources tell New Times that the chances of Bundgaard remaining majority leader after his colleagues revisit the matter next week are zilch.

In fact, sources say, some GOPers want to end Bundgaard's reign as majority leader as early as tomorrow.

Bundgaard told colleagues that new evidence will be revealed this week that corroborates his story about what happened, and prove that his now-ex-gal-pal, Highway Heavyweight Champion Aubry Ballard, pulled out a gun during the scuffle, despite there being no mention of it in the police report.

Several of Bundgaard's Senate GOP colleagues, sources say, aren't buyin' his story, and despite having the votes to give their leader the boot yesterday, opted to play along allow the majority leader to present the "new evidence" before voting.
