State Sen. Robert Meza, who was first elected to the Arizona House of Representatives representing District 14 in 2002, appears to keep a low profile. The General Election was Nov. 6, and the 54th Senate site is still is devoid of information.
This senate seating chart shows him relegated to the back of the chamber. Though he’s now in the state senate, there is no listing for him. Bio? Don’t bother. There is none. The former House member was first elected in West Phoenix, when he wasn’t actually living in the district from which he ran, but conveniently rented an apartment to establish a home base —- moving only after the votes were counted. Currently representing District 30, after the last redistricting, the Democrat has no listing of bills he has sponsored or co-sponsored. There is no photo, which could erroneously lead to the conclusion that he’s camera shy.
But a shrinking violet Meza is not, as evidenced by this Conservative Treehouse posting, titled, “Jim Jordan Questions Google CEO About Specific Example of Overt Political Bias From Executive…”
The post opens with this:
According to an email chain between Google executives obtained by Fox News’ Tucker Carlson and Breitbart News, Google’s Multicultural Marketing development head Eliana Murillo sent out an email November 9th, 2016, detailing how Google had “supported partners like Voto Latino to pay for rides to the polls in key states,” which she characterized as a “silent donation.”
“We even helped them create ad campaigns to promote the rides (with support from HOLA folks who rallied and volunteered their time to help),” Murillo said. “We supported Voto Latino to help them land an interview with Sen. Meza of Arizona (key state for us) to talk about the election and how to use Google search to find information about how to vote. They were a strong partner, among many in this effort.”
Read “the rest of the story,” to get the full thrust of Meza’s behind the scenes activities.
But even with his heavy lifting, he does manage to have time on his hands. In October 2017, on ‘National Coming Out Day,’ Meza joined with three other openly gay state lawmakers to announce the creation of a new ‘LGBTQ Caucus’ in the Arizona legislature. The caucus was obviously a legislative necessity.
Meza was integral to Google’s efforts ensuring the reliably Democrat Hispanic vote was gathered. Google and Facebook also compile massive amounts of data on those who use their sites. The Guardian has the disturbing information.
