Recruited candidate, rife with problems, becomes political hot potato
Seeing Red AZ appreciates the corroborating coverage of the bizarre state legislative campaign in District 6 by the Sonoran News. Investigative reporter Linda Bentley details how lifelong Democrat, Tony Bouie, perfected a quick registration switch to become an instant Republican and found himself the beneficiary of adoration by the open borders crowd and even a congressman or two.
The Sonoran News reports that when Tony Bouie’s lies became unmanageable, he authorized his wife to send out a vicious email in which she attempted to deflect his knotty problems by calling the elected precinct committeemen “white supremacists, racists and crazy people…who were out to crucify…and beat the living daylights out of Tony’s character.”
Bouie’s finger-pointing at challenger Carl Seel, turned out to be a nearly masterful means of deflecting scrutiny of his own travails. Bouie’s numerous difficulties include bankruptcy, foreclosure, and vehicular recklessness, including Criminal Felony Speeding and driving on a suspended driver’s license. The bankruptcy left his creditors holding the bag with losses n excess of a quarter million dollars
This would read like a Grade B farce, except for the serious, real life implications. Many of the district voters have already cast their early ballots, unaware of the charade that Tony Bouie has set out to perpetrate upon them.
“For some bizarre reason, Mr. Bouie has attempted to start his political career by lying to the voters. This demonstrates a serious character flaw that is unacceptable and I call on Mr. Bouie to immediately withdraw from this campaign,” said Crump.
