In a ridiculously skewed article in which the newspaper vents its fears of the legislature “politicizing” Arizona’s judicial selection system, the takeaway is this peculiar quote from state Sen. Adam Driggs (R-Dist.11):
“The goal is: How do we get the best judge in that chair with the robe on?”
Driggs, a lawyer, is a member of the senate judiciary committee. He was one of the turncoat Republicans who voted with the Democrats on all five bills addressing the continued illegal invasion of our state by foreign nationals routinely breeching the porous southern border.
It might seem a lawyer would have a better command of the English language. But Driggs’ legal specialty is immigration law and he highlights his proficiency in Portuguese and Spanish on his business website. It’s a good bet his immigration practice isn’t geared to assisting those who are legally immigrating using the orderly and legal process the United States generously provides.
That Adam Driggs opposes transparency and the party’s grassroots organization is bad enough. But being unable to articulate his inane vantage point makes his comment the joke of the week.
