LD 28 state legislative candidate Kathy Pappas Petsas is a RINO political opportunist undeserving of your vote
Longtime readers of SRAZ know this site delves into local, statewide and national politics. They are frequently interconnected, featuring overlapping players Occasionally, when the issue is compelling, we even hunker down into one of the thirty statewide districts, from which our state House and Senate members originate. Districts — representing both major parties — have elected chairmen, put in office by elected precinct committeemen, known as PCs.
Recently we focused on the underhanded campaign mailer (image included), sent out by the Arizona Republican Party to Republican voters in Legislative District 28. The mailer deliberately omitted highly-qualified GOP incumbent state legislator Maria Syms. It has been followed by more of the same. To say these actions raise more questions than they answer, would be the height of understatement. Although the Pro-Life plank is integral to the Republican Platform, both former House member, Kate Brophy McGee, now running for the state senate, and newcomer rabble-rouser Kathy Pappas Petsas are pro-abortion advocates. Syms is Pro-Life.
You might recall Petsas as she cozied up to leftist AZ Republic columnist Laurie Roberts denigrating conservative Republicans as “Kooks,” and advocating on behalf of “DeKookifying” the Arizona Republican Party. In Bosnia in the early 1990‘s, this despicable action was known as “ethnic cleaning,” resulting in wiping out perceived enemies. Yes, we know, only symbolic political deaths are being called for here. And conservatism is not the same as ethnicity, though many of us believe our values are in our DNA.
Although we are not subscribers to the Capitol Times’ Yellow Sheet, it’s been reported that Scott O’Connor, the RINO former LD 28 chairman has declared to its reporters that he’s “proud” of the AZ GOP for kicking Syms to the political curb and boasted that he cast a single shot for Petsas, to give more oomph to his vote. He also claims he enjoys seeing the “hyenas and jackals” who populate Seeing Red AZ and Republican Briefs have fits over the denigration of state Rep. Maria Syms.
Those “kooks, hyenas and jackals” are all of us, folks.
This 2012 post titled, “RINO Kathy Petsas aids Dem fundraising machine,” clearly shows she’s been laying the groundwork for not only her current state House race, she’s long been homing her incisors to take a bite out of your conservative neck. Also from 2012 is, “Conservatives targeted in LD 28.”
Get up to speed. Tomorrow is Election Day There will be no do-overs. Vote Republican, not Republicrat. If you live in Legislative District 28, vote only for Maria Syms.
