Ward and Finchem Disgrace Themselves With Reactions to the Trump Coup Attempt

It is time for members of the Arizona Republican Party to decide what people they want to lead them. This article first appeared on the Blog for Arizona. In their reactions to the attempted insurrection by Trumpist mobs at the nation's capital, current Republican Party Chair Kelli Ward and Legislative District 11 State Representative Mark Finchem disgraced themselves and clearly showed that they should not be entrusted with any leadership positions. Check out Ms. Ward's social media posts on Twitter yesterday (January 6, 2021.) These examples especially stand out. https://twitter.com/kelliwardaz/status/1346917946170306563 This is simply horsesh*t. What could have prevented [...]

Mark Finchem Spreads Scary Claims while Bonding with Indicted Steve Bannon

The video below from the Trump Zone is scary. It is a seven-minute exchange between the indicted white nationalist-fascist and Trump confidant Steve Bannon and fringe reactionary state representative Mark Finchem (R-LD11). During this exchange on December 28, 2020, Finchem went after the Republican-dominated Maricopa County Board of Supervisors for using the courts to stop enforcement of a subpoena issued by the Arizona State Senate (specifically Senators Karen Fann and Eddie Farnsworth) seeking county voting records, machines, and software from the November 3, 2020 elections. It should be noted that a Maricopa County Superior Court Judge, Randall Warner, sided with [...]

GOP Lawyers Screw Up Again in Election Subpoena Lawsuit

In a continuously failing GOP conspiracy to overturn the November 3 election, Republican state legislators subpoenaed the Maricopa Supervisors' election records. Bungling GOP lawyers Kory Langhofer and Thomas Basile sued to enforce the subpoenas -- but their frivolous case was just dismissed. This article first appeared on the Blog for Arizona. Superior Court Judge Randall Warner ruled that the lawyers cited the wrong state law and asked for an improper remedy. State laws have lots of numbers and letters, and it's hard for these GOP lawyers to get them straight. Lucky for lawyers Kory Langhofer and Thomas Basile, [...]

21 Trump Lawyers Charged with Filing Frivolous Election Lawsuits in Arizona

Trump attorney Dennis Wilenchik Bar charges have been filed against 21 Trump lawyers who filed bogus lawsuits seeking to overturn Arizona election results. The attorneys could be disbarred for filing frivolous lawsuits backed by anonymous sources and phony experts. The complaint accuses the lawyers of violating their oaths as attorneys and violating ethics rules against spurious lawsuits. “This barrage of litigation is based not on law but on a clear political agenda: to undermine confidence in elections that will inevitably subvert constitutional democracy,” the complaint states. Trump attorney Alexander Kolodin allegedly filed 5 baseless lawsuits. In [...]

GOP Clown Car of Lawsuits Finally Crashes

Soooo much losing. The GOP nationwide and in Arizona have been driving a clown car, with bogus lawsuits jumping out wildly. But they've crashed into a wall of judges, legislators, and officials who reject their claims to overturn the election -- and many of them are Republicans! This article first appeared on the Blog for Arizona. Republicans have become defeated whiners and snowflakes who melt in court. And I'm afraid it's true: they lost to a massive conspiracy of 80 million people who voted for Joe Biden, working in secret with mail-in and in-person ballots. The GOP's problem [...]

In Her Own Words: Kamala Harris Rallies Tucson for Joe Biden

In the spirit of the late great John McCain, I was thinking, let's start with a little straight talk. Now, you know, there has been some talk about my values. Well, let me just tell you, Tucson. I am a proud patriotic American. I love my country. And our values reflect the values of America. Our values tell us we have witnessed the worst, the biggest disaster of any presidential administration in this country's history. Our values tell us that. Our values tell us that we should not be in a moment where over 225,000 people have died in [...]
