Apparently, in Arizona, voters are only used as a means to an end, and their wishes/welfare is of no concern to elected officials, nor are the laws enacted to protect them from unethical, selfish politicians. Bad enough we have a senile bigot as sheriff, but now Granny Jane wants to change the laws to suit her selfish thirst for power.
I thought the object of this election was to "de kookify" the state government and what did we do? We gave even more of a mandate to the bully with a badge, and now we're pondering changing the rules to put back just another in a long line of "kooks" in the governor's office? This sounds like a serious us problem. I just heard from Florida. We have overtaken even them in being the laughingstock of the nation. Keep it classy Arizona! HA.
I'm not surprised the rightwing nuts are going to ignore another law. If they can't win they attempt to change the rules or not count the votes.
Jan is done. And the GOP would do well to find someone who speaks for the majority...not a screaming and shriking minority.
HOW ABOUT SOME "FAIR AND BALANCED" REPORTING ???
IF I HAD WANTED TO READ A "COMMENTARY"....I WOULD HAVE READ THE "COMMENTARY" OR "OPINION" SECTION.
EVT REPORTERS..........LET'S LEAVE THE PERSONAL POLITICAL AGENDAS AT HOME WHERE THEY BELONG AND JUST GIVE THE READER THE FACTS FOR A CHANGE.
Leon, I wish a lot of Faux News watchers would share your admirably high standards.
Governor Brewer said: "We are a land of Laws, all Laws."
Only laws against Hispanic Immigrants and ignoring their Legal Citizen Children, and Families.
Just not the Laws Mrs. Brewer chooses to break or ignore!
Defrauding Social Security, ignoring State Constitution, and Term Limits Voters mandated, ect.
What a Racist Hypocrite.
LOL....the Libs showing how dumb they are.......Mexican is not a Race.....Hispanic is not a Race....Latino is not a Race.............they are all ....Ethnicities.
If the Mexican, the Honduran, the El Salvadoran and the Guatamalan have 51% Spanish blood then they are as Caucasian as Sheriff Joe, and Governor Jan Brewer, Rush Limbaugh, Hannity and Bill O"Reilly.
Oh....an you might want to look up the "legal" definition for ......"immigrant".
Illegal Aliens are not "immigrants", they are "citizens of a foreign Country who have entered the United States = illegally (the did not come through a US Border Crossing".
Just like I told Mikey McClellan....look up facts, engage brain then and only then.....open mouth.
Well this will be decided by the AZ Supreme court, my hope is they say NO, NO, NO!Regardless, I wouldn't vote for her.
AWWW, hell no
Davidnichols: These p[eople are called MESTIZO'S. Definition of word is Mixture but it has nothing to do with being legal or not.If you LIBTARDS have your way this great nation of our's will no longer exist.We the people of LAWS will defeat you lawless renegades.GO JAN.
I swear if Arizona re-elects this retarded loon again I give up. There is simply no hope for this place to be anything but a wasteland of knuckledragging moronic inbred idiots who destroy our educational system and spend all our money stopping crimes that don't happen or that are victimless and pretending to stop people from crossing the border when they still cross whenever they want, oh and trying to prove the President was born in Kenya. She isn't even originally from here!!! Stop electing outsiders with the expectation that they will give two donks about the state!
Will the Arizona Supreme Court rule in favor of Brewer running for govenor again, only if it politicaly benefits the judicial system and the judges. Currently the Arizona State Bar and the Arizona Supreme Court Presiding Disciplinary Judge are exercising a strangle hold on the political system within the judiciary. William J. O'Neil, the Presiding Disciplinary Judge is running amuck and using the position to intimidate and control any attorney who would stand up against a judge. O'Neil though has his own ethical problems including allegations in a Judicial Complaint of short sale/mortgage fraud, influencing court proceedings, nepotism, falsifying public records to name a few. Read the complaint.
Now O'Neil has stacked the 3 member disciplinary panel by having his good friend and next door neighbor sit on at least 5 hearings. The close relationship was not disclosed to the defendents (attorneys).
This is a very serious ethical breach which the Supreme Court is doing nothing about. The day is here where an attorney representing you or me dare not question a judge for fear of retaliation by O'Neil and the Arizona State Bar. Fair representation is a thing of the past. God forbid anyone depends on justice if it is not in the best interest of the judiciary. It is past time to have Senate hearings on these matters as quite apparently the Judiciary is incapable of policing itself.
It is a great concern also that the media will not report on these issues, one Phoenix tv station was threatene with a libal/slander suit if the report prepared was run.
