Andy Biggs Made Talonya Adams a Victim – Not Katie Hobbs

Letter to Talonya Adams. Dear Ms. Adams, You were done an injustice. The courts have established that your pay was sexually discriminatory and you were wrongly terminated, and the jury has done what they could to rectify that wrong. But you are making an error: Katie Hobbs did not discriminate against you, and is not the cause of the injustice that was done to you. Secretary Hobbs took responsibility for her part in firing you – for cause – but she had no intent to retaliate against you. The court found there was a lack of sufficient procedure in place to document and escalate the causes [...]

Andy Biggs Made Talonya Adams a Victim – Not Katie Hobbs

Letter to Talonya Adams, Dear Ms. Adams, You were done an injustice.

Governor Candidate Katie Hobbs says the Maricopa Fraudit is “a Sham”

Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs said she will issue a damning report about the Maricopa County election fraudit within two weeks.

"We are going to be coming out with a report in the next couple of weeks that really encapsulates all of that. Look, no matter what they come up with, this isn't a real audit [...]
