McCain Graham Cracker continues to crumble
Here we go again. Robert Graham, chairman of the Arizona Republican Party is back to his unsavory magical McTrickery. At Wednesday night’s Maricopa County Executive Guidance Committee (EGC) meeting, he was responsible for ousting Sergeant-at-Arms Barbara Medal from the regularly scheduled monthly meeting.
Graham wasn’t present, but like his mentor John McCain, he has become adept at having surrogates carry out his dirty work. In this case, it was his spokesman,Tim Seifert, who called for her ouster. Seifert had arranged for deputies to be on site, presumably to protect him from the small statured, white-haired septuagenarian. When Seifert was asked who directed her removal, he reportedly replied “Robert Graham.”
Fulfilling the duty of Sergeant-at-Arms, which is to keep order at meetings, becomes an impossibility when dealing with the elite of the AZ GOP, in whose building the county meeting takes place. Among Medal’s duties is verifying the credentials of attendees as the enter to ensure they are Republicans. It was while she was seated at the table inside the doorway that she was told to leave.
After a similar altercation with Medal last month, Graham referred to the elected precinct committeeman in Legislative District 26, as “unstable,” claiming, “She has a reputation for making accusations.”
Tyler Bowyer, Maricopa County Chairman, was in attendance at Wednesday’s meeting but didn’t protest the outrageous action, although he was the one who appointed Barbara Medal to her EGC post.
In an effort to derail the foolishness, Andrew Costanzo, Member-at-Large, made a motion to adjourn the meeting. It was defeated by a cowardly vote of 11 to 9.
These ongoing actions clearly expose the establishment’s limp claim that we must work together and elect Republican PCs to achieve common goals.
Their actions belie their empty words. Establishment supported candidates get their funding from the Chamber of Commerce, which nationally endorsed Common Core, Obamacare and amnesty — that benefits the illegal alien profiteers to whom they are inextricably bound. There are few representing the continually attacked conservatives — either nationally or here at home.
