Problematic Proposition 123 fraught with deception
The Arizona Daily Independent runs a fact-filled report titled, DeWit: Arizona “Run Like A Mini Dougtatorship.” State treasurer Jeff DeWit boldly states his opposition to Prop. 123, the flim-flam education funding scheme being relentlessly pushed by Gov. Doug Ducey.
The far left Arizona Republic newspaper gives it an editorial stamp of approval, writing: “Proposition 123 represents an opportunity to infuse big money into Arizona’s K-12 public schools. It is step one in a long journey of restoring proper funding to our schools.” The editorialist unconvincingly adds, “but with tough expectations for Arizona’s governor.”
Take a look at that “big money” being donated to the promotion of Prop. 123 by some of the wealthiest individuals and business entities in the state. Then ask yourself what’s in it for them. Rest assured it’s not the ability to nurture warm feelings of benevolence.
The donor’s names and their campaign donations follow the final paragraph of the ADI report.
When asked about the large donations to the pro-Prop 123 campaign, DeWit said that the money was provided by “the richest people in the state. From what I understand – what they say down there,” referring to the Capitol, “there is talk that they have been promised future tax cuts. There are cuts that are targeted to that, and that’s why they are giving the money. There is a reward kind of return. I have been told that there was a fundraiser at the Governor’s house where they wrote these checks. He invited them over, and there were some closed room talks and they wrote big checks. And that’s it.”
