·       Bill Whittle Speaking At The Freedom-Center  A powerful message that every Republican needs to watch.  Whittle pulls no punches.


·       Questions and Concerns Continue To Circulate about the dust up that occurred Wednesday evening between AZGOP staffer Brandon Urness, an unidentified individual with Urness, and Maricopa County Republican Committee (EGC) meeting attendees .

MCRC Executive Director April Riggins confirms reports that three visitors came into the EGC meetings after it started. The three individuals stayed throughout the meeting. Upon Bowyer’s adjournment, one of the visiting individuals – reportedly a process server -  handed legal paper work address to the MCRC to Chairman Tyler Bowyer, Riggins and EGC member Andrew Constanza (who was seated at the far end of the head  table next to the exit door) then immediately left the building.  Bowyer handed Riggins his copy as he departed for the airport to catch a plane to Cleveland for the Presidential debates.  Riggins verified reports that she gathered up the paper work the process server had handed to Bowyer, Riggins and Constanza and had it all delivered to the MCRC attorney Ted Naeckel. 

Witnesses report that Urness’ unidentified companion, flashed a camera as close as a foot from the faces of EGC attendees, including the EGC Sergeant-At-Arms Barbara Medal, after she requested he stop flashing his camera close to the faces of EGC members because it was blinding them.  Saturday afternoon, Medal, who was reportedly injured during the upheaval, opt to “make no comment at this time for personal and legal reasons.” 

Former MCRC Chairman A J LaFaro confirmed reports that he accompanied Medal on Thursday when she filed an ‘assault complaint’ with the Phoenix Police Department. LaFaro was also with Medal with she met law enforcement officers at AZGOP headquarters Thursday afternoon as officers investigated her complaint.
