LD 30 chair Gary Hirsch: I’m gonna win so I’m resigning

The LD 30 saga never ceases to amaze.  Frosty Taylor, editor of Republican Briefs, is the go-to source of the latest information — including the back story — regarding the special meeting called for Monday night in order to recall legislative district chairman Gary Hirsch.

Hirsch is viewed by many of the elected precinct committeemen as a John McCain operative and part of the very senior senator‘s bizarre payback scheme to cleanse the Arizona GOP of conservatives who supported McCain’s censure at the January 2014 state statutory meeting. That vote of censure passed 1,150 to 351.

On Sunday afternoon, in advance of his recall election, Hirsch submitted a letter of resignation to Maricopa County Republican Committee (MCRC) Chairman Tyler Bowyer. In that letter, Hirsch oddly boasted that he had the votes to save his chairmanship. His exact words state he had “secured the votes to win handily on Monday.”

In view of Hirsch’s resignation, the special meeting was officially cancelled.

    McCain’s censure vote last year wasn’t even close, but his vengeance knows no bounds. I was in attendance and proudly joined the majority in that historic vote. His people have tried mightily to remove conservatives from the party ranks. LD 30 was targeted because its immediate former chairman Timothy Schwartz was basically responsible for the recall.

    Very appropriate headline!

  3. William Heuisler says:

    This is just the beginning. McCain thought he was boss hog in Arizona, even after the censure votes by gutsy Republicans. He depends on money and on voters being polite about his record.
    No more: Remember McCain voted to fund Obamacare. His Soros-backed McCain-Feingold silenced Conservatives in 2012 as IRS thugs targeted us. McCain-Kennedy & the Gang of Eight promoted Immigrant Amnesty. Mob-connected Kemper Marley gave candidate McCain $553,000 in 1982. From 1986 to 1988 McCain helped Charles Keating steal the life savings of elderly Arizonans.
    Every month I’ll be sending out thoroughly researched accounts of McCain’s record to as many voters as I can. Please pass them around, spread the word and/or send me email lists.
    Remember, this boss hog is just Patsy’s pig, hip-deep in slop.

      …”slop” is a very kind word. Nicely done, William. I can think of far more accurate terms for that lyin’ hypocrite, but we try to maintain a modicum of decorum here…

      As to this latest fine post…didn’t john “th’ Coward” boehner say something similar last week? WELL, like my mom used ta’ say, “Birds of a feather…”

    McCain’s Vietnamese allies were recruited as PCs in LD 30, elected and then never participated.
    They were slipped in the back way during a break at the last state meeting (Jan. 2015) by state chair Robert Graham, McCain’s boot licker, after he pulled a stunt to clear the auditorium. McCain and Flake were also escorted in the same way. McCain’s Vietnamese supporters were led up to the balcony where they cheered him and waved Vietnamese flags. What a sight! McCain and Flake were both booed as many delegates walked out.

  5. East Valley Conservative says:

    I hope this LD 30 chairman’s resignation is an indicator of the lack of sway McCain holds in the party. When his own stand-in surrenders, it doesn’t look good for McCain.

    Dr. Kelly Ward is waging quite a campaign against McCain. I have conservative relatives around the state who have all told me they’ve seen and heard her and were impressed.
    Check out her website and send her a donation. McCain has the lobbyists. She needs us.
