Newly elected Arizona Governor Doug Ducey isn’t letting any grass grow under his feet as he repays establishment favors.
In this accolade-filled press release, Ducey announces the appointment of accomplished charlatan Tony Bouie as the new director of the Arizona State Lottery.
This post, “Tony Bouie: Problematic candidate is baaack,“ dated Jan. 30, 2012, contains links to numerous articles we’ve written about Bouie’s brazen attempts to deceive the voters in two separate districts where he sought legislative seats. “It’s time to stop the embarrassment, Tony“ contains links to a dozen other articles about the duplicitous Tony Bouie.
A man with an abundance of personal problems, Bouie is best known for registering as a Republican after being a lifelong Democrat, and then opportunistically lying about it when running in a GOP heavy District. He shamelessly filed his intent to run within FIVE short days of changing his registration status. Then the newly-minted Republican had the temerity to refer to himself as a “conservative leader.” After his con was exposed he went so far as to send out a press release declaring that he “became a Republican in his heart,” but neglected to reregister — with the new party that meant so much to him.
Until his lies were exposed, opportunistic imposter Bouie remained so insistent touting his longtime Republican credentials that he told the Capitol Times, “In fact, I’ve been a Republican half of my voting life.”
The lottery —- state sanctioned gambling —- is taking a pointless gamble with Tony Bouie.
In an arena where integrity must be the paramount consideration, Gov. Ducey and his advisors have fallen far short of the mark in replacing principled former state lawmaker Jeff Hatch-Miller, who has held this position since 2009.
