Resurrects McCainiac Grant Woods to lead Petersen probe
According to the State Bar of Arizona, there are approximately 18,500 active attorneys in the state. Many have credentials and temperament that make them standouts. Grant Woods, an arrogant showboater, is not one of them.
This September 2018 SRAZ post sums up Republicrat Woods who finally made the party switch after years of threatening to do so and continually endorsing Democrats. Read it to be brought up to speed on who this guy is.
On his own law firm website Grant Woods indulges in hyperbole about himself, claiming, he is “one of Arizona’s most acclaimed and successful lawyers,” while calling his own career “legendary.” As we previously wrote. “Normally such glowing accolades are bestowed by fans, but Grant Woods has no fan that matches the guy he sees in the mirror each morning. “
A major case garnering attention in three states — Arizona, Utah and Arkansas — concerns Maricopa County Assessor Paul Petersen, who faces dozens of felony charges related to the fraudulent adoption scheme that consumed more of his time than the job to which he was elected in 2013. The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors has suspended him and he is fighting to regain the job which records indicate he rarely showed up to perform.
This is obviously a case that requires a steady hand and a commitment to more than self adulation. Which raises the question why newly appointed Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel would select Woods to lead the investigation into Petersen’s activities.
Disreputable Grant Woods (article contains numerous links) was John McCain’s first chief of staff when McCain was in the U.S. House nearly four decades ago before being elected to the Senate. Like McCain, Woods later used the Republican Party to which he had no allegiance, to win election as Arizona Attorney General.
