Western Journalism reports that an online ad paid for with Arizonans’ tax dollars are encouraging voter participation…. in Mexico
According to the report, “Arizona Secretary of State Michele Reagan appears prominently in the ad, despite that fact she will be on the ballot herself in the fall.”
It was previously reported that Reagan, with anemic polling numbers due to her mismanagement of the office, was one of the secretaries of state who refused to participate in President Trump’s Commission on Election Integrity. Most of the states that indicated they would not comply are led by Democrats. In this July 26, 2017 letter to Reagan, Kris W. Kobach, Vice Chair of the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, advised her that more than 30 states had already responded to his request and either agreed to provide these publicly available records, or were currently evaluating what specific records they may provide in accordance with their state laws.
Kobach, currently the Kansas Secretary of State, is a 2018 candidate for governor. A bold conservative and recognized legal scholar, he has led the fight against voter fraud and illegal immigration. It’s no surprise he would meet with resistance from Michele Reagan. In 2011, as a state senator, Michele Reagan voted against five bills dealing with the continuing invasion of Arizona by illegal aliens. Democrats voted in unison against all five bills. Republicans who ran as conservatives, misrepresented their positions to their constituents. SRAZ titled the post, Meet Arizona’s Benedict Arnolds.
Long known as a Republican-of-convenience, reaping the benefits that an “R” after her famous, but unrelated, name affords, Reagan resigned her position as a delegate to the Republican National Convention in 2016, rather than go to Cleveland to vote for Donald Trump. That won’t play well with the Trump supporters who put him over the top to take the state of Arizona on election night.
She oversaw a snafu-filled election process with vital election information pamphlets not mailed to all voter households and half of the polling places missing from those listed, resulting in long lines where some voters waited for hours to cast their ballots in the presidential preference election.
The conservative Republican challenging Reagan on the 2018 ballot is Lori Klein Corbin, former state Senator and current Republican National Committeewoman.
Though things seem bleak, Michele Reagan does have one friend who commends her “great leadership.”
