Fmr. Sen. Steve Pierce replaces perv Stringer

That’s obviously not our best headline, since no one with any degree of principle would be a replacement for disgraced child rapist, pedophile, and child porn aficionado David Stringer. Though Stringer maintained he served no time for his crimes, he accepted a plea deal, including five years probation on the charges. Stringer resigned March 27, when the hideous facts became irrefutable…and got even worse, as reported by the local newspaper.

Prescott rancher Steve Pierce, 69, has been selected by the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors to complete the House term. Pierce was previously a state senator from 2009-2017 and served as senate president from 2011-2012. He has indicated he will serve out the rest of the term, but will not run for election.

Make no mistake. Pierce is neither a fiscal nor social conservative. During his previous term, he was a supporter of expanding the Medicaid provisions of Obamacare, not a popular Republican position.

Former Arizona Secretary of State and senate president, Ken Bennett who challenged Doug Ducey as a Clean Elections candidate in 2018, would have been our preference. He adamantly opposed the expansion, saying, “Obamacare is the biggest job killer and destroyer of small business in history. And the entire U.S. has it because of Gov. Ducey and Sen. McCain.” His full quote is here.

In 2014, after supporting SB1062, known as the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, Steve Pierce described his action by saying, “I screwed up,” after getting heat from the LBGTQ community and the ACLU. Gov. Brewer also caved to the loudest voices and vetoed the bill that had mainstream support.

Fortunately we now have conservative leadership at the AZ GOP following the January election of Dr. Kelli Ward as state chairman and a reliable supporter of President Donald Trump.  Join the team.  Become a precinct committeeman.

    Is there anyone in State elected office, down there between Washington and Jefferson, who can find out why gasoline stations in Maricopa County are posting these signs on gas pumps:
    “There is currently a fuel shortage in Maricopa County. . . .”

    No one is questioning the high prices, which have been with us for a long time. Jumped even more over the past 3 weeks.

    Was surprised to see that back East gasoline is 40 cents to 60 cents cheaper per gallon. Even around the Beltway.

    Summer blend, or summer fraud scheme?

    For anyone to confuse Steve Pierce with a Republican means they haven’t been paying attention. At best he could be described as a RINO, which is no compliment. I well recall when Pierce was an elected a member of the state legislature, he joined the Democrats voting for an amendment requiring background checks for purchases at gun shows. He was never with conservatives when the rubber met the road on issues of importance like the expansion of Obamacare or supporting the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

    I’m glad this Republicrat has no future political aspirations. I can’t imagine why he was selected other than to continue to give aid and comfort to the dems. Does the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors lean left?

    Very disappointing appointment. This is no different than having a McCain clone in the state House.

  5. State Delegate says:

    SRAZ is absolutely right on the critical issue of becoming a precinct committeeman, PCs are the backbone of the Republican Party and do more to get Republicans elected than any of the candidate committees alone are able to do. It’s the best unpaid job you’ll ever have!! You’ll meet the candidates along with other great people who understand what we are up against with the onslaught from the left. PCs are committed to winning!! Get involved. It’s never mattered more.

  6. Realist says:

    Steve Pierce is anything but a Republican savior. He’s a leftwinger posing as a Republican in the conservative, retirement haven of Prescott, and letting the senior citizens believe he is what he isn’t because he has an “R” after his name on the ballot. His appointment is not one to rejoice over, Ken Bennett would have been a far better choice.

    We now see why so many conservative have left the Republican party. No matter how many precinct committeemen we sign up and how many conservative join the fight, the establishment RHINOs always seem to pull one out of the hat. Forget the enemy in front of us, watch out for the RHINOs that stab you in the back.
