Andrei Cherny, whose name more resembles that of a Soviet Politburo chief than the chair of the state Democrat Party, has announced that he is leaving his post after just a year. He uses his self-congratulatory farewell letter to Arizona Dems to take credit for removing Senate President Pearce while hoisting himself by blasting individual Republican elected officials for what he terms “political extremism.” For a little guy, he has awfully long arms. They reach all the way around his back as he gives himself countless pats for deeds that essentially exist in his own mind.
Count on his forthcoming announcement that he will be running for Congress in the new 9th Congressional District — which includes parts of Mesa, Phoenix, Scottsdale and Tempe. Former State Sen. Kyrsten Sinema has resigned to run in this same district.
Who is Andrei Cherny? He’s a radical liberal who proudly declares he has “provided policy and strategic advice to Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Bill Clinton, Al Gore, Hillary Clinton, Harry Reid, Bill Richardson, Cabinet members, Governors and national labor unions.”
You get the picture.
Cherny lost his 2010 bid for Arizona State Treasurer to Republican Doug Ducey. Watch him replicate that misadventure in 2012.
