Political atonement for discriminating against Talonya Adams?
Though Arizona’s public school test scores have lagged behind national scores, and were further negatively impacted by COVID school closures backed by teacher’s union members, democrat Gov. Katie Hobbs has other considerations that she prioritizes as it comes to Arizona‘s children.
Her focus is hair. And not just any hair. Hobbs has prioritized ethnic black hair. Her preposterous Executive Order titled, “Prohibiting Race-Based Hair Discrimination,” dated March 17, 2023 has to be read to be believed.
According to the 2020 U.S. decentennial Census (the most recent available), Black Arizonans comprised fewer than 5 percent of Arizona’s population — but they overwhelmingly vote democrat, so their hair matters to Hobbs.
This shockingly dismal Arizona Schools Report Card made available by the Arizona Department of Education under former Superintendent of Public Instruction Kathy Hoffman, a democrat, heralded the promotion of “equity” as standards. Grades were given short shrift.
State Superintendent of Schools Tom Horn, a Republican who previously served as Arizona’s elected attorney general, is back in charge of Arizona’s schools having won reelection as superintendent. Given his past successes in elevating Arizona’s educational standards and scores, Hoffman’s dismal record will be noted for the failure it was.
Hobbs defeated Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake by less than a single percentage point, 50.3% to 49.6%, which is hardly a mandate for Hobbs who continually wields a Janet Napolitano-style veto pen. That underhanded tactic earned the former governor —an open border advocate — who resigned to join the Obama administration, the nickname “J-N0.” Democrats govern by demagoguery. Republicans produce results.
For Gov. Katie Hobbs to prioritize black hair is absurd, but it‘s clearly a tactic to gain the good will of the black voters she needs to bolster her image after her unsavory involvement in the Talonya Adams saga. Talonya Adams, a black staff attorney and policy advisor was fired by then-senate minority leader Hobbs for wanting to be paid a salary commensurate with her white, male counterparts. Adams was paid $30,000 less.
This brief U.S, District Court order shows an impaneled jury awarded senate staff lawyer Talonya Adams — who represented herself in court — nearly $3 Million dollars after being discriminated against by Katie Hobbs.
Project Veritas posted ‘Disappearing Arizona Gubernatorial Candidate,’ during the 2022 campaign. In it Hobbs said, “I don’t want to talk politics with anyone I don’t know.” That must be the reason she refused to participate in the KAET-TV political debate…the only candidate for any statewide office to ever take that stance since the debates began decades ago.
