Political contortionist lacks core beliefs
It’s not everyday we see a career politician wave a white flag at the opposing party, (video seen below) but that’s what took place Monday at the Arizona State Senate. At issue is a declaration holding the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors in contempt for failure to adhere to a subpoena challenging the November presidential election results in which irregularities were witnessed with the problematic Dominion voting machines. Maricopa County GOP chair Rae Chornenky resigned in the wake of failing to certify the voting machines. Arizonans were not alone in their distrust. Following the election, Rasmussen Reports polling cited 47% who thought fraud was likely.
Paul Boyer was the lone Republican among 16 who voted against holding the AZ Board of Supervisors accountable. His bizarre quote is, “Make no mistake today’s vote merely provides a little bit more time to work together charitably and actively as friends.”
If Boyer thinks Republicans have democrat colleagues with whom he can he rely on as “charitable friends,” he must believe in the tooth fairy.
Although his photo, committee assignments and office phone number are shown on the senate website, there is no biographical information for Boyer, who is termed out in two years. You might want to call his office and express your dissatisfaction with his foolish vote that frustrated Senate President Karen Fann and bewildered Republicans.
The brief text of SR1005 can be read here. No doubt Boyer’s angling for a much more lucrative future lobbying gig. State legislators are paid $24,000 a year and haven’t had a pay increase since 2000. For mental midgets such as Boyer caving to his democrat “friends,” even that paltry sum is too much.
