Planned Parenthood endorsed “conservative” Rodney Glassman


Rodney Glassman, who has repeatedly and unsuccessfully run for public office as a Democrat, is back again, this time as self declared ‘conservative” running for Maricopa County Assessor. Just two years ago in 2018, Glassman carried the union label as he appeared on the UFCW Local 99 endorsement list along with Democrats running for statewide, congressional, district and school board elections.

Glassman, who bears no allegiance to any party or position, is a political opportunist who can magically transform himself better than Erik Weisz who morphed into Houdini.

Misguided conservatives who are supporting him might be surprised to know that in his previous political incarnations, he was the darling of both local and national Planned Parenthood leadership. In 2012 when Democrat Glassman ran for the U.S. Senate challenging John McCain, he won the endorsement of both Planned Parenthood Action Fund, the advocacy and political arm of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, and Planned Parenthood Advocates of Arizona:

“This election is crucial, and we need leaders in the U.S. Senate who will stand strong against attempts to restrict women’s access to basic health care and who will champion policies that make that health care more available to all women,” said Cecile Richards, then-president of the national Planned Parenthood Action Fund. “Rodney Glassman’s record of public service and charitable giving stands on its own, and he is a proven advocate for women’s health and rights.”

To pro-abortion advocates, women’s “reproductive health care and rights” is code talk for the unrestricted ability to kill pre-born human babies.

“The voters in Arizona are tired of politics as usual from their elected officials who represent them in Washington,” said Bryan Howard, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood Advocates of Arizona. “They want to elect a champion of women’s health, and Rodney Glassman is that candidate. He is committed to standing up for women and families by putting commonsense health care needs ahead of ideology and politics.”

Incumbent Maricopa County Assessor Eddie Cook is a man of integrity, a reliable, conservative community leader, technology expert and former member of the Gilbert Town Council where he served for nearly a decade. Cook was unanimously appointed by the Board of Supervisors as Maricopa County Assessor over 10 other GOP applicants — including Glassman — when his predecessor was removed after being charged with adoption related felonies in multiple states. Eddie Cook is restoring trust and accountability to the office, eliminating waste and saving taxpayers money. Take time to read his priorities and accomplishments.

This is an important election. It’s crucial to retain Eddie Cook as Assessor.  Don’t be conned by the biggest signs placed by wealthy political changeling Rodney Glassman, desperate for a win to use as a launching pad for grander schemes. His current intent is to buy his way into office…any office…to facilitate his future plans.

    SRAZ is being too kind in calling the conservatives who are supporting Rodney Glassman “misguided.” In my opinion they qualify as fools. Sometime back I received a letter from Maricopa County Treasurer Royce Flora, who actually refers to himself as a “Servant Leader.” In the letter signed by Flora and his chief deputy Russell Pearce, (previously held in high esteem as a state senate conservative leading the fight against the illegal invasion of the USA), they advocate on behalf of Democrat Glassman. What a betrayal! As a Democrat Glassman opposed the border wall. His father employees illegals in his Fresno-based agri-business that has made him immensely wealthy.

    Their duplicity is based on the fact that Glassman ensured that all of Flora’s signs were erected early on major corners adjoining Glassman’s. Glassman is said to be footing the entire bill. Join me in voting for John Allen NOT Flora. Allen is the principled AZ House Majority Leader and chairs the Judiciary Committee.

      Royce Flora has revealed himself as slippery as a greased pig. We also received the letter from Flora and Pearce endorsing Glassman and wondered what the hell was going on. My wife actually trashed it, but I found it on top of a bunch of junk mail I was taking out to the bin. It was infuriating to see Flora cave to this lifelong leftist.

    This information doesn’t surprise me, but do find it disgusting. I hold people running for and holding elective office to a higher standard than they do themselves. Thanks for this informative post.

    Ever wonder why the bio-engineered China virus is still allegedly causing havoc in Arizona?

    They don’t want You to vote. (Mail-in ballots they can take care of nicely, thanks to the USPS)

    AZ, like TX, is in trouble. But unlike TX, we do not have an elected official like Ted Cruz who is sounding the alarm.

    The beatings will continue until they get what they want—North Venezuela.

    It’s all about the election.

    Meanwhile, some photos that you won’t see elsewhere.
    Disturbing, to say the least.

    You’re wearing a mask so that you’ll shut up.

    You know in your heart what to do.
    Use the voice that God gave to you.

    Rodney Glassman was obviously never vetted by the AZ GOP, if they even do such things. How difficult would it be to check the longtime credentials of those attempting to infiltrate our elections? They could hire a college student who would easily be able to unearth the things we’ve read here, but do it in a timely enough manner that would expose the perpetrators and their colluders like Flora and his deputy turncoat Pearce to affect the election results as they should.

      Precinct committeemen elect the county Party chairs and officers. In Maricopa County, five elected officers, five elected “at Large” members, and the twenty legislative district chairs, per the Bylaws, make up the Executive Committee. One thing the Executive Committee can do in primary elections, per the Bylaws, is endorse one candidate over the others. But someone has to stick their neck our and make a motion to vote on the endorsement, and then it has to be carried by 60% of the 30 members. The last time such an endorsement was made, as far as I know, was way back when Bill Montgomery was running against RINO Rick Romley and some sanctuary city mayor (Gilbert or Chandler) for county attorney. And it only passed by the bare 60% of the vote. Want “the Party” to vet candidates? It’s all volunteers. Did you know that only 36% of the county Republican PC slots have a volunteer candidate? That’s right, in this election year, of “the most important election in our lifetimes,” our county Party will be at 36% strength. That means only about one out of every 300 or so registered Republicans are “in” the Party as elected precinct committeeman. The best, least expensive way to make the Party better and stronger is by becoming part of it: by becoming a PC. I hope this helps.

      • Fed Up says:

        Thanks for the good information. I am a PC, but a fairly new one and don’t yet know all the ins and outs of the process. I was venting my frustration that a double dealer like Rodney Glassman could get away with misrepresenting himself to a lot of gullible voters.

    Planned Parenthood NEVER endorses conservatives. We stand for life. They endorse death of the most vulnerable among us.

  6. Matt DeGennaro says:

    Glassman is looking ahead to running for governor or for congress. He’s hoping a win in the under the radar Assessor’s Office will give him the boost he needs. Don’t be taken in by this leftwing scam artist.

  7. Maggie says:

    Planned Parenthood, the organization that helps women “plan” their families by killing some of their children, is the world’s largest abortion provider. It is shamefully responsible for the deaths of over 61 million pre-born children, at any time in the pregnancy and for any reason, since the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. Rodney Glassman not only supported and donated to this murderous group but also “won” its endorsement. What a guy!

    • D.B. Cooper says:

      This sure makes me wonder about his Republican supporters who should know better. Are they that ignorant, lazy or foolish, or have they simply sold out their principles?
