David Braswell: Now you see him, now you don’t

Like a magician who vanishes in a puff of smoke, recently appointed state Sen. David Braswell (R-Dist. 6) has mysteriously disappeared from the list of current and former state legislators who have endorsed John McCain for re-election.  It turns out to be an amazing feat, given that at least one other person requested having their name removed and got the cold shoulder from Team McCain. Not to be deterred, the legislator in question even hosted an event for conservative challenger J.D. Hayworth and was still held hostage to the list’s McStranglehold.

But Braswell, giving Houdini a run for his money, was mysteriously able to slip the bonds. Team McCain blundered in not correcting the original number and reflecting the fleet-footed Braswell’s exit.

Those paying attention are wondering what was powerful enough to give the former school board member a get-out-of-jail-free pass when others are denied.

For comparison, here is the original list as it appeared in a Seeing Red AZ post March 19, 2010.

    If Braswell’s mentor Linda Gray jumped into the Grand Canyon head first, he would be two steps behind following her lead. Braswell is a lemming.

    A lemming? Wrong. If you’re going to use animal comparisons, go for an eel. He’s as slippery as an eel.

    Braswell is a hard guy to dislike. Personally, I like him quite a bit. Doesn’t change the fact that his a big government lib.

    Thanks for the heads up. Having known McStain for too many decades, this means that Braswell owes Sproul/McStain and their cronies his political life. He would have been better off to leave it alone and deal with the damage rather than highlight himself like this.

    However, Bra-swell was never known for his political acuity. Sucking off the hind teat of L Gray and Johnny Mac has done nothing to make him any smarter.

    Vote for Lori Klein. She’s got a brain and doesn’t drip oil.

    Amazing stuff SeeingRed. How do you find all of this garbage about these snake oil politicians? Don’t know much about this Braswell character, but his ties to McCain are obvious and I will not vote for him.

  7. Regina says:

    Braswell is off the hook because McStain recognizes a kindred soul when he sees one.

    Debbie Lesko, however, still stands by her man, John McAmnesty.
