· Congressman Paul Gosar: This week brought us more information on the lawlessness of the administration and Attorney General Eric Holder in regards to illegally transporting immigrants to Arizona cities. The administration continues to use taxpayer dollars to transport and house detained illegal immigrants flooding across our porous southern border. I am encouraged to see this egregious violation of the rule of law receive more national attention from major news outlets. Pictures of illegal immigrants being released into the public at bus stops as well as inhumane, overcrowded detention facilities are being broadcasted on the nightly news. The only way we can make our elected leaders uphold the rule of law is if the people of this nation are engaged in the issue and hold them accountable.
· Contact Your Congressman. Let them know your anger over yet another scandal that has taken the lives of unknown numbers of Americans. Our veterans deserve better.

· Candidate Yard Signs In Your Neighborhood Are Legal. The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution guarantees your right to free speech, and state law supports homeowners' rights to display political yard signs during election season -- despite HOA rules which may try to restrict your rights. Details on the law are here (toward the end of the document) and it's clear that an HOA cannot enforce sign regulations that are more restrictive than those of the city, town or county. If you are living in an HOA and run into this situation, please visit our Facebook page and tell your side of the story. AZGOP newsletter.
· ATTN Candidates: Candidate announcement/events are coming in without any reference to the position they are running for. Announcements without position, party affiliation and contact information, might not get posted as I don’t have time to research them. Don’t assume everyone knows who you are and what you are running for.
· Congressman Paul Gosar: This week, the House continued the annual process of appropriating federal funds to various government agencies and departments. Throughout my entire career in Congress, I have focused on cutting waste, fraud and abuse out of the federal government budget. I successfully passed four amendments to two separate appropriation bills. The amendments will limit the size and scope of The Department of House and Urban Development (THUD) and the Department of Agriculture.
Amendment 1: “Stop Obama’s Assault on the Suburbs". This amendment prevents the federal government from using funds to socially engineer our neighborhoods. The Department of Housing and Urban Development (THUD) was attempting to create a thinly veiled set of rules and regulations which would force communities to conform to the utopian dreams of an ideological administration or face losing out on billions of dollars in grant money. I spoke about this amendment on Tuesday in an interview with Fox Business Network. You can watch that interview HERE.
Amendment 2: This amendment prohibits funds for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s National Roadside Survey: This worthless road survey amounts to an invasion of privacy, a violation of the Fourth Amendment, and a dereliction of duty to protect the public. Last year’s survey squandered almost $8 million dollars of taxpayer money and did nothing to make our communities safer. Read more HERE.
Amendment 3: This amendment cut funds from the wasteful and inefficient Office of the Chief Financial Officer at USDA and redirected those resources to the Department’s Office of Inspector General to meet the budget request. This measure will ensure the IG has the resources to crack down on the widespread waste, fraud, and abuse within USDA. Read more HERE.
Amendment 4: My final amendment that passed this week cut $2.1 million in spending that Obama wanted to use to hire more government attorneys, many of which will be used to implement and defend the Administration’s overreaching land grabs, water grabs, and climate change policies. I simply cannot, in good conscience, support funding to hire new government bureaucrats that will impose more overreaching federal regulations and infringe upon Arizona’s Tenth Amendment right.

WHAT CANDIDATES ARE SAYING:
· ATTENTION CANDIDATES: Please confine your statements to no more than 250 words. If they run longer, they will be edited.
· CD2 Candidate Chuck Wooten: The success of our District relies on responsible and Constitutional approaches to restore, grow and protect our economy. Current leadership has not been acting in a collective interest, but in political posturing. The state of our future is not based on a one-dimensional answer or speech. It is irresponsible to think that all facets of our public safety, economy and educational system can be dissected into parts and not related to the rule of law. It is when we respect our state sovereignty and individual rights and responsibility that we can regain the strength and grow our success as our Founding Fathers intended.I will defend our freedoms through honest and productive conversation - not exercise power and control through condescension. Join me as I continue to work for blind justice for Southern Arizona. http://www.wooten2014.com/
· CD2 Candidate Chuck Wooten on border issues: How long will you accept the current situation? While your current representative (DEM) Ron Barber writes letters and makes speeches that on one hand - admit that we have a largely unprotected border, drug cartels smuggling, and lack of transparency for funding to the Department of Homeland Security on the other hand - says nothing to address the current actions of the busses filled with undocumented people being dropped off in our areas at the expense of your tax dollars. According to Family Security Matters, "Congressman Barber fought to serve on the Committee on Homeland Security where he was appointed ranking member of the Oversight and Management Efficiency Subcommittee." Again, while Tucson City Council is talking about using TUSD school buildings and our military base to house those who enter our country with no regard or respect to our law, will you stay silent? Support Chuck Wooten if you prefer to have clear representation that demands our border be secured with straightforward action. http://www.wooten2014.com/
