After serving in the position of Arizona’s National Committeeman for nearly a decade, establishment crony Bruce Ash is showing signs of a serious disconnect with reality. His haughtiness has now warped into the category of disgraceful embarrassment as Ash calls for Trump staffers to be shot execution style “in the back of the head,” due to what he believes is their gross incompetence. Ash made the comment during an appearance on Tucson Talk Radio Station KVOI.
The Daily Caller reports on Ash’s outrageous comments linking to a report in the Arizona Daily Independent which carries the audio. This isn’t Ash’s first round of thuggery. Seeing Red AZ reported on Ash’s outrageous 2014 call for conservative radio talk show host James T. Harris to be “kneecapped” because he did not support the establishment candidate — now U.S. Rep. Martha McSally — as she campaigned for a seat in AZ Congressional District 2.
Conservatives have viewed Ash with suspicion since his 2011 eleventh hour decision — widely seen as a contrivance — to abandon the race for AZ GOP Chairman citing health issues that didn’t keep him from his business duties or cause him to abandon his post as National Committeeman. With amazing speed, Tom Morrissey was recruited and won as a write-in candidate, soundly trouncing the McCain supported candidate.
The brash Ash has all too clearly demonstrated he’s no longer worthy of holding a leadership post within the GOP and should heed the mounting calls to step down.
