Over many years family-centered and faith-based Center for Arizona Policy President Cathi Herrod has curried a strong relationship with the state’s Republican senators and congressional delegation. Suddenly, her ire has erupted in this message of “deep disappointment and shock.“ The object of her wrath is none other than Arizona’s two U.S. Senators.
Read Senators McCain and Flake Break Their Promise to Arizona Voters. It’s definitely worth your time.
Herrod substantiates her shock with both McCain’s and Flake’s answers to CAP’s voter guide questionnaire regarding the so-called Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA). Both men gave assurances they would not support this legislation that “compromises our first freedom – to practice our faith, free from government interference.”
Herrod’s blog correctly states, “ENDA is a false bill of goods: while it claims to end discrimination, this bill in fact fosters discrimination against business owners and employers with sincerely held religious beliefs.”
Here are the senator’s voter guide surveys:
Will her ire dissipate as election time rolls around? Herrod is a smart woman, a lawyer running a massive business enterprise. She’s been around the political track long enough not to be considered naive. What would make her think these two acknowledged duplicitous RINOs would be dependable? Yet she seems stunned that their pre-election assurances meant nothing once they were safely ensconced in those cushy offices along the Potomac as part of the Club of 100 senate elites. It’s long been their modus operandi. She must not have been paying attention.
Here’s a pre-campaign memory refresher on amnesty-supporter John McCain. And Jeff Flake? He began by reneging on his term limits pledge, smirking as he admitted, “I lied.” Then the AZ Republic came editorially unglued when he backtracked his amnesty commitment —- until the votes were counted.
Those are six-year terms. They hope that by the time they need our votes again, we will forget this deception. Will you? Will Cathi Herrod?
