Re: “Do You Care About Doug Ducey's Mob Family Tree?

Voters want to know whom they're voting for. What isn’t said becomes relevant when we see a pattern of extreme avoidance of both candor and accountability - not once or twice, but all the time.

When someone who is hardly an “open book” campaigns on a platform of family values and American ideals, it's worth noting concordance of values professed vs. expressed. Faced with glaring inconsistencies, those who have a right to know and a need to know should ask why.

The fact that an independent reporter did all this work and was unable to find evidence that could be used in a prosecution, if one should occur, in no way diminishes the importance of his findings. It might be worth asking why any reporter would seek to denigrate the efforts of another reporter who, without the benefit of resources, is trying to do the job that a more established news organization should have done.

We are talking about a would-be Governor of Arizona. Not a parking lot attendant or TV repairman. And people who have far less responsibility at work are subjected to far greater standards in hiring. Do we ask candidates to subject to a background check? Drug test? Why or why not? They are shaping our world and should be subjected to the same scrutiny as everyone else.

Does it matter whom a person associates with? Apparently, Doug Ducey thinks so:

"Well, as Ducey said at that Koch summit, 'You're known by the company you keep.'"

As John McCain said, “integrity matters”.
