Defends vulgar tabloid but silent on threats against restaurants
Conservative voters in Legislative District 25 don’t need a nudge to remember the feigned outrage that AZ Senate candidate Bob Worsley exhibited in support of the Phoenix New Times when he attacked former AZ Senate President Russell Pearce for calling for a boycott of the tabloid.
According to media reports, The Village Voice and its family of newspapers — including the Phoenix New Times — account for 70% of all prostitution advertising in the United States. The sex ads generated over $25 million during the last year alone. Forty-eight state Attorneys General and 19 U.S. Senators — both Republicans and Democrats — have called on the corporation to stop running the ads, which have been tied to child sex trafficking, and collectively finance a national operation of hate campaigns against conservative individuals, organizations and elected officials.
Yet Bob Worsley jumped to the defense of the raunchy tabloid, demanding an end to calls for a boycott. Sean Noble, Worsley’s campaign consultant, even declared it “incomprehensible that anyone would call for a boycott that aims to damage Arizona business when our economy is still hurting.”
So how did Worsley react when his radical open-borders allies such as Randy Parraz, Dee Dee Blase and their amnesty-bent cohorts threatened Macayo’s and Oaxaca restaurants with boycotts, protests and business disruption, forcing them to cancel confirmed reservations for a Russell Pearce fundraising event?
With deafening silence.
Apparently such Arizona landmark restaurants, which cater to families, do not deserve the same protection from Bob Worsley and his campaign that the sordid, anti-family Phoenix New Times does.
Worsley attacked Pearce on the New Times story because he was desperate to put a “pro-business” face on his purely political attack.
Don’t be fooled. Worsley’s crass hypocrisy clearly defines his integrity-challenged campaign.
