Pamela Powers Hannley, a progressive voice for Arizona
Oh, boo, hoo. The Blog for Arizona commenters think I am being too tough on
poor millionaire GOP gubernatorial candidate Doug Ducey.
Let’s not forget that Ducey– along with fellow Teapublicans Governor Jan “Papers Please” Brewer, Department of Education Superintendent John “Thucydides” Huppenthal, Ken “Birther” Bennett, and Tom “Banned for Life by the SEC” Horne— were all elected during the Tea Party Astroturf Revolution of 2010. Since then, this group + the Teapublican Arizona Legislature have wreaked havoc on our state, passing, signing and otherwise enabling bad legislation.
After the recent Republican primary, Ducey is the only one left standing. In November, it’s time to dump Ducey. (Or #DumpADucey, as they are encouraging on Twitter.)
It’s time to clean house. It’s time to end this six-year nightmare that worked up the nativist fringe, while catering to the Koch Brothers, the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) and the Goldwater Institute. Ducey– along with the others– are too extreme for Arizona.
Recently, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Fred DuVal suggested that Arizona should establish a political ethnics commission. Looking at this disgraced group, I think it sounds like a great idea.
