Unsavory McCain alliances taint taco fest
Republicans in state Legislative District 28 are in a tough spot. They have a choice between sending RINOs or a Democrat to the Arizona House of Representatives. Attempting to differentiate one from the other is a fool’s errand. The same holds true for the district’s state senator, immigration lawyer Adam Driggs.
To aid and abet the election of yet another RINO, Sen. Nancy Barto (LD 15) and Rep. Justin Olson (LD 25) are lending their names and presence to a “Meet and Greet” taco soiree on behalf of LD 28 House candidate Shawnna Bolick. Her coup establishment endorsers Jeff Flake and the ubiquitous Bill Montgomery are otherwise ocupado.
On her campaign website, Bolick contends “our legal immigration system has been broken for decades,” and “we must restore a work-based immigration system…..”
During her failed 2010 campaign Bolick had the endorsement of Doug McDucey, now a gubernatorial candidate and the fast food mogul Jason LeVecke, an illegal labor profiteer.
And the salsa on the frijoles? The festivities are at the Paradise Valley home of Bill and Debbie Cheatham. Republican insiders will remember Bill Cheatham as the McCain choice poised to topple Rob Haney as Maricopa County Republican chairman. But a conservative tsunami rocked the GOP 2011 meeting when conservative Haney, with a massive show of support, trounced Cheatham 1281 – 575.
Shawnna Bolick was a prime supporter of Bill Cheatham’s, handing out anti-Haney fliers at that meeting.
On the taco invitation, which we’ve chosen not to post, Shawnna says she’s hosted many meet-and -greets throughout this election cycle, but she just “wants to see you once more.”
Here’s hoping she gets her wish.
