MC Recorder Adrian Fontes tells voter to F-himself

You wouldn’t be alone if you’ve never heard of Adrian Fontes. The lawyer and political novice is Maricopa County‘s classy new Recorder, winning the election by a single percentage point over Helen Purcell who held the post for nearly 30 years. The office oversees elections and records documents.

Fontes not only wants to reconstruct the elections process within one of the nation’s largest counties, he is paring down polling places, sending all registered voters a mail-in ballot — regardless of whether or not they requested one and is hard at work reconfiguring voting precincts, consolidating them for what many believe to be nefarious purposes — giving the edge to Democrats.

On his bio page on the Recorder’s Office website, the word Democrat, in bold face type, follows his name as the third word on the site. He also informs Maricopa County voters that he is an “avid supporter of his community.”  Exactly which community is not defined, though Maricopa County, the fourth most populous county in the United States is far too large to be considered “a community.“  The fact that he plays in a mariachi band, could be a clue.

But it’s his mouth that is putting the liberal on the map. When a voter complained on Facebook about encountering difficulties with the ballot and mentioned that his mother was also having problems, Fontes, the father of three young daughters, blew a hole through the civility that voters have come to expect from the Recorder’s Office. He told the man, a fellow Democrat running for the state legislature, he could go “F-himself.” He then backed that response up by saying, “My response was not only appropriate but deserved,” saying he was defending the work of his staff.

After his coarseness made the news, Fontes later apologized to the candidate for the crude response. He said he took matters too far, and said he will try to do better. “Try” is a bit too iffy to count on from a boorish hothead like Adrian Fontes.

During his campaign, Fontes claimed to want to make the county recorder’s office “nonpartisan,” either by taking the vote from the people by making the elected post an appointed position or by deceptively concealing the party affiliation of candidates as the City of Phoenix does.

Since the word “Democrat” follows his name on his office bio, that pre-election blather has obviously gone by the wayside. It falls in the same category as open borders/amnesty proponent John McCain deceptively pledging tocomplete the danged fence.”

    This guy has no business holding public office. He is supposed to represent ‘we the voters’ of Maricopa County, not hurl “F” bombs at us. I can’t help but wonder how he interacts with his wife and daughters. He obviously is lacking in basic controls.

    With the AZ housing market on fire and over-priced for most locals, there is a huge influx of WA; OR, & CA leftists pouring in, bringing with them major cases of bad attitude.
    This does not bode well for conservatives in AZ.

    Disturbing news today:
    Beau Bergdahl, the traitor, gets NO prison time.
    This is Unacceptable.

    If you followed the trial, you would have heard the testimony from the men who were catastrophically injured trying to rescue Bergdahl.

    The most gut-wrenching testimony was from the wife of a young military veteran who is completely and utterly incapacitated and must depend 100% on others for his care.

    Meanwhile, the Obamas have started a Foundation.
    (a.k.a. get rich quick scheme)
    And they have a new side-kick who is a patron of their new Foundation.
    None other than Prince Harry of Britain.

      Prince Harry’s fiancé’s mother is African American. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

    Another valuable post from SRAZ to educate we the people. Thank you.

    I voted for Helen Purcell after seeing Adrian Fontes on local political shows. He was arrogant and inexperienced. He telegraphed that he was behind the Hispanic “community” first and foremost. In another valuable SRAZ post, I found this:

    Phoenix cannot enact it’s new illegal immigration policy because it violates state law (SB1070) and Fontes does not have the legal authority to call an all-mail election.
    It’s all bluster to appeal to the item left -wing bases.

    We’re in for much tumult with this guy, “F-U” Fontes.

    • Realist says:

      Fontes is clear about the community that matters to him, when he says he was born on the border. Does that mean his pregnant mother was taking a hike across the desert at the moment of his birth? Which side of the border, Mr. Fontes?

  4. Matt DeGennaro says:

    This Communist sounding redistribution of wealth group called “Our Revolution” supported the candidacy of Adrian Fontes. Very concerning to say the least. I don’t remember hearing about his coonnection prior to the election last year.

  5. Hometown Guy says:

    Just curious. if Adrian Fontes is still active in the law firm that carries his name, how does he divide his time between his business and the job he ran for and the duties it entails? We the taxpayers are footing the bill for his salary. I’d be curious to know what he’s getting paid and the additional benefits he receives.

    Communists revving up to unseat Trump, starting tomorrow. List of cities is shown in the article – Phoenix is not on the list. Surprise (not) – Tucson is.

    Reminder: ‘Refuse Fascism’ Protests to Unseat Trump Begin Nov. 4

  7. Villanova says:

    Adrian Fontes was endorsed by Diego Rodriguez who was a liberal candidate running for Maricopa County Attorney during the same 2016 election cycle.
    Rodriguez was one of the radicals who received funding from Socialist billionaire George Soros who stated that he wanted to reconfigure the American justice system.

    Birds of a radical leftist feather….
