Pearce elected President of AZ Senate

Hot off the press on the John C. Scott Show (the Jolt, 1330AM), LD28 Representative Steve Farley announced that Arizona’s Senate Republicans have elected Russell “father-of-SB1070” Pearce as president of the Senate.

Here’s a link to the Capitol Times article.

Anchor babies and immigrants, beware.

    Correction: illegal aliens beware.

      No, I believe that anyone who is not lily white and straight has to beware.

    Of course they’ll reward him – he found a sure fired vote getter for them: blame it all on the illegals. It got the horribly unqualified Brewer easily reelected, and they swept all the statewide offices for the first time in a long time. But really he didn’t come up with anything novel or new, he just took a cue from his neo-Nazi buddies and lifted a page right out of the Brownshirts manual: When the economy is very bad, just find a minority group (preferably one that is defenseless and can’t fight back) and blame them for everything. The masses will forget the real reasons for the bad economy and join in the witch hunt.

The Tucson Progressive: Pamela Powers Hannley

I stand on the side of Love. I believe in kindness to all creatures on Earth and the inherent self-worth of all individuals--not just people who agree with me or look like me.

Widespread economic and social injustice prompted me to become a candidate for the Arizona House, representing Legislative District 9 in the 2016 election. My platform focuses on economic reforms to grow Arizona's economy, establish a state-based public bank, fix our infrastructure, fully fund public education, growlocal small businesses and community banks, and put people back to work at good-paying jobs. I also stand for equal rights, choice, and paycheck fairness for women. I am running as a progressive and running clean.

My day job is managing editor for the American Journal of Medicine, an academic medicine journal with a worldwide circulation. In addition, my husband and I co-direct Arizonans for a New Economy, Arizona's public banking initiative. I am a member of the national board of the Public Banking Institute, and I am co-chair of the Arizona Democratic Progressive Caucus, the largest caucus of the Arizona Democratic Party.

I am a published author, photographer, videographer, clay artist, mother, nana, and wife. I have a bachelor's degree in journalism from Ohio State University and a masters in public health from the University of Arizona. I grew up in Amherst, Ohio, but I have lived in Tucson, Arizona since 1981. I am a proud member of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Tucson and the Public Relations Society of America.

My Tucson Progressive blog and Facebook page feature large doses of liberal ideas, local, state, and national politics, and random bits of humor. I also blog at Blog for Arizona and the Huffington Post.
