Jerry Lewis was the original “Errand Boy” dreaming of being a cigar-chomping CEO. Now, decades later, he’s back. This time with visions of sitting in the seat currently occupied by Arizona Senate President Russell Pearce. Pearce, the effective architect of the nationally imitated SB 1070, is the subject of a recall election initiated by open borders proponents. Last year 346 laws addressing the crisis of illegal immigration were enacted nationwide.
But whereas most candidates stick to filing nominating documents prior to entering a race, Jerry Lewis has filed a police report with Mesa Police. A padlock from a passing pickup truck hit Jerry Lewis in the groin while he and a friend were jogging in his neighborhood.
Police have indicated they will analyze the lock forensically looking for identifying fingerprints or DNA to determine if the lock fell or was thrown. Lewis did not require medical attention.
Neither Lewis nor his early morning jogging partner noted the truck’s license plate number, although they meticulously identified the white Chevy truck and 35-40 year old, brown-haired white male driver, who they detailed as wearing a long-sleeved black shirt. Attempts to locate the pickup were unsuccessful.
In formalizing his campaign this morning, Mesa resident Jerry Lewis joins two other East Valley residents who have also announced their challenges to Senate President Pearce. Olivia Cortes, 58, has opened a campaign committee — as has Tommy Cattey, 62, who acknowledges he is not politically astute, but is “a more compassionate person” looking for a “more humane” way of handling the illegal aliens invading the Untied States.
And the Errand Boy? The question remains whose errand is he running?
