Really?! THE TWEETS are the problem? How out of touch is she? Here's only some of the problem:
-Russia,Russia,Russia
-Comments about journalists
-Unconstitutional Muslim ban
-Attempted gutting of domestic programs like Meals on Wheels
-Embarassment in the International field: Paris Climate Agreement
-Shady charity money laundering
-Encouraging a divisive government
-ACA repeal
-That STUPID wall

Re: “The Skinny

Hey McSally...just cause you have a (R) next to your name doesn't mean you have to vote in lockstep with the Republican agenda. The "heathcare bill" (actually it's just a huge tax cut for the very wealthy) will take away 28 million people's access to healthcare. Don't blame Trump for taking you down.... those low ratings are because people don't like your voting record.

Re: “The Skinny

McSally has a D- on immigration - same grade as Raul Grijalva. Might as well elect a Democrat.

Re: “The Skinny

Pothole Heaven....delivered by Governor Deadbeat Ducey and his gang of Republicans, who have diverted millions of gas tax revenues away from road repair.

Re: “The Skinny

This city has far too many government employees for a Republican to win. Funny thing is that our roads are proof of it.

Re: “The Skinny

Kozachik beat Nina Trasoff in 2009 not 2011. The third contest this year is in Ward 5, which the Weekly failed to even reference again in an article. Nintzel should get an F in his journalism class at the U of A for such errors.

Re: “The Skinny

What a bunch of clowns. Mariano Rodriguez is too busy to talk to the Tucson Weekly and doesn't call them back. Republican Party chairman David Eppihimer says Watson isn't a true "Republican" because he supported a sales tax hike to pay for cops, fire and road repair. So much for the large tent the republicans keep saying they have. I guess keeping Tucson shitty and cheap is more important than protecting its citizens. For some people I guess $3/month per person is too much for proper police and fire protection. But hey, if the bonds had passed last year all this would be moot.

Re: “The Skinny

BSLAP, aren't you that Russian troll that I advised to drink large amounts of prune juice and to take fistfulls of sleeping pills?
How did that work out for you? Or was that CW13?
But I digress. Tell me all about Vladivostok.

Re: “The Skinny

Not one mention of mental health issues in your abysmal journalistic attempt. Maybe you'll get 'em next time, Jim. Oh, and thanks for the embarrassingly pointless polling information.

McSally has an F- on immigration - same grade as Raul Grijalva. She votes for increasing immigration and against enforcing immigration laws at virtually every opportunity.

The media has fanned the flames of hatred and bears responsibility for pushing people to say and do stupid stuff. Tone it down.

I think the pressure of trying to run the failing Tucson Weekly is too much for Jimbo, this article is pretty unhinged.

Re: “The Skinny

Little Jimmie - do you have to resort to deleting comments that are FACTS.

Such as:

1) Tucson is the 5th poorest in the country.

2) It has been run without opposition for the last three decades by liberals.

3) That "Keep Tucson Shitty", your line, is absolutely accurate because liberals have made Tucson Shitty?
