· Senate Conservatives Action President Ken Cuccinelli II; Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell wants you to think he opposes the effort to defund Planned Parenthood in the continuing resolution because it could cause a government shutdown and he doesn't have 60 votes in the Senate when in fact it only takes 41 votes to filibuster funding for the organization. He doesn’t care about stopping funding for Planned Parenthood, and he never has. Facts he doesn't want you to know:
(1) In 1992, McConnell voted to allow taxpayer-funded research using body parts from aborted babies. Roll Call Vote #263, 10/2/92 This policy, which was vetoed by President George H. W. Bush but later signed into law by President Bill Clinton, had the effect of making abortion even more profitable for Planned Parenthood.
(2) In 1992, McConnell voted to overturn the so-called "Reagan Rule" that prohibited Planned Parenthood from using taxpayer dollars for pro-abortion counseling. Roll Call Vote #254, 10/1/92 McConnell's vote was to override President Bush's veto, but the House sustained it. Then, in 1993, President Clinton overturned the "Reagan Rule" by Executive Order on the first day of his administration.
(3) In 1997, McConnell voted against a targeted ban on federal funding for research on body parts from abortions. Roll Call Vote #215, 9/4/97 McConnell was one of 14 liberal Republicans who voted to allow taxpayer-funded research on body parts from abortions.
(4) McConnell has voted for at least 15 bills that provided funding for Planned Parenthood dating back to 1998. At least six of his past votes to fund it were when Republicans controlled the House, Senate, and White House. He has repeatedly voted to force American taxpayers to fund Planned Parenthood. Please call the Senate Republicans an urge them to oppose the CR that funds Planned Parenthood. Tell them to stand up to McConnell. If he wants to fund Planned Parenthood, he should be forced to do it alone.
· Former Gilbert Public School Board President And LD16 PC Staci Griffin-Burk email@example.com: Evidence shows that despite the loss of the override, teachers (and for that matter admin as well) have still received raises every year for the last 5 years straight (there was a 1% raise in 2011.)
The Gilbert Board and Maricopa County Supt of Schools Don Covey were directed to appear in Maricopa County Superior Court this morning at 11am to answer to the Court as to the reason that both Covey and the GPS Board allowed the factual inaccuracy (that teachers have had only one raise in the last 7 years) to go to print in the override and bond publicity pamphlet which is scheduled to be mailed out to all voters within the next couple weeks.
Covey, instead of performing his required statutory duty under ARS 15-481B9 to ensure that all factual statements are correct in the override and bond publicity pamphlet, spent hours trying to censure what he believed to be satirical or sarcastic opinions of some of the pro override arguments submitted. The statute is clear that he cannot censure opinions, but must correct factual inaccuracies. The facts are;
In 2012, GPS teachers made between $35,557 and $66,330 (2% raise)
In 2013, GPS teachers made between $36,611 and $68,334 (3% raise)
In 2014, GPS teachers made between $37,143 and $69,290 (1.4% raise)
In 2015, GPS teachers made between $37,737 and $70,399 (1.6% raise)

· LD20 2nd Vice Chair Wes Harris: A recent survey conducted at the behest of the Chamber of Commerce revealed some unintended consequences by actions or inactions of our state judiciary system. Question: What is the economic impact of the actions of the 50 state's judicial systems? The answer as it pertains to Arizona is that we have been falling on an annual basis from the eight best state to now the 25th (worst) state. No where will you find this result posted by the MSM in Arizona because the powers that be do not want you to know.
The state judiciary has long used the mandatory State Bar Association as the 'inquisitor' , 'judge' and 'jury' to quell any decent that would result in a revision to stem the corruption of the judiciary in our state. Many of those that have been impacted by this corruption have banded together to try and initiate positive reform to this system in Arizona under the name "Citizens 4 Clean Courts", an organization I urge you to check out.
Last legislative session LD20 Rep. Anthony Kern sponsored a bill that would have stripped the mandatory clause that requires attorneys be a member of the State Bar Association under our State's right to work law. This bill was attacked by both the State Bar Association and members of the State's Supreme Court which resulted in it being defeated on the House floor by one vote. Another bill will be brought forward in January of 2016 and we need all the support we can get to counter what will surely be another concerted effort by the State Bar Association and our State Judges to defeat it again. Other actions are contemplated that will further the cause of eliminating the corruption that runs unabated in our judiciary.
