·       AZGOP Chairman Robert Graham demanded today that Democrat Ron Barber reimburse the federal government for the taxpayer money he spent on his reelection campaign.  Graham noted that Barber reportedly has more than $750,000 in campaign funds available -- funds that should be used to repay the government for using federal funds for his personal campaign. "Taxpayers deserve ethical representatives who will be good stewards of our nation's government and take special care to use our taxpayer dollars wisely," said Graham. "But because of people like Ron Barber, voters in southern Arizona and beyond are suffering the embarrassing consequences of his ethical lapses."

Graham noted that Barber could take the initiative and reimburse the government for the taxpayer funds used to support his reelection efforts when Barber sent out a campaign flyer, but he still intends to ask the Speaker of the House John Boehner to have the U.S. House Committee on Ethics investigate whether Barber's actions merit disciplinary action. The Committee recently convened to investigate eight members of Congress -- including Raul Grijalva of Arizona and Charlie Rangel of New York -- who had been arrested by police in October after repeated warnings against obstructing others and "blocking passage" during a protest in Washington, DC.  Rangel had been investigated previously by the Committee and found guilty of 11 charges relating to his finances, which led Congress to vote to censure him and require him to pay restitution in 2010.  In October the Committee deemed their proceedings resolved after the Grijalva and Rangel paid a fine to have the protest charges dropped.

"Americans are just sick and tired of this kind of unethical behavior in Congress, and it's hitting close to home now that a second Democrat from Arizona is having trouble with his ethical conduct," Graham added. The Committee on Ethics of the U. S. House of Representatives has published their rules prohibiting members from using official resources for campaign and political purposes here.

·       U.S. Senator John McCain released the following statement on the College Football Playoff today selecting Arizona to host the 2016 College Football National Championship Game, set for January 11, 2016 at Glendale’s University of Phoenix Stadium: “Today is a great day for the State of Arizona. The College Football Playoff’s decision to select Glendale to host the 2016 National Championship Game reconfirms Arizona’s status among the premier sports and entertainment destinations in America. I have had the privilege of serving as Honorary Chair of the Arizona College Football Championship Game Host Committee, whose members – including state and local elected officials and business leaders – have led the way in supporting our state’s bid to bring this game to Glendale. Today’s decision is a testament to the enduring attraction of Arizona, its people and its natural beauty, and the commitment our public and private sectors have to working together to produce world-class events.”
