Patterson Ethics Report: Threats, Intimidation, and Marijuana

Posted By on Mon, Apr 2, 2012 at 12:55 PM

The House Ethics Report report on Daniel Patterson was released this morning. Turns out the committee's investigators looked beyond domestic violence allegations made by his ex-girlfriend and ex-wife. It reads like a tale out of an Arizona version of Reefer Madness, or in this case, what happens to state lawmakers who allegedly smoke too much dope:

"Rep. Patterson has engaged in a pattern of dishonesty and untruthfulness beyond tolerable political puffery and mroe personally sinister than typical political discourse among devoted and head-strong politicians advocating for thier positions and for their constituents. Indeed Rep. Patterson's misrepresentations have crossed in an area of unabashed dishonesty."

Read the report in its entirety here [PDF], but we'll probably be posting highlights (or lowlights, if you prefer) from the report for some time.
