8-1-17 Briefs

Republican Briefs

LD22 State Committeeman David Peters: When Jonathon Lines was State GOP Treasurer, (2015-2016), he had an ethical and moral obligation to the party to use his fiduciary duty to report inconsistencies.  If he had read and understood the bylaws, Article IV, F-3, he would understand that he is required to have the treasurer’s report audited and reviewed by a disinterested certified public accountant whenever the chairman or treasurer leaves office. Had he followed protocol and established bylaws prior to accepting the position of treasurer, he would not have to skirt the issues presently facing him.  He failed his duties of treasurer, and now is failing his responsibilities as State GOP Chairman.  And HE WONDERS WHY SO MANY STATE COMMITTEEMEN ARE UPSET.  We do not want “most transparent”, we want full transparency” in party operations.  Because we have tolerated these reckless actions in the past has lead us to this point.  If we continue to continue to tolerate Jonathon Lines’ actions in the future, we have only ourselves to blame.  The sewers in Washington DC need to be drained; it starts upstream with the “John McCain’s and State GOP party”.  

Russell Sias, La Paz County Chairman to AZGOP Chairman Jonathan Lines: I read your letter in the in the 7-30-17-Briefs In regard to our new secretary, please recognize the contradictions in your letter. You state that “...it is the responsibility of the past Secretary to hand over all permanent records to the current Secretary...” THEN you state “...my staff and I have told Secretary Mercer: The Secretary is welcome to come to the AZ GOP headquarters at any time. She is welcome to whatever permanent records that she desires, to be handed over by her predecessor….” Do you recognize the questions your statements raises? Where are these records? At Linda White’s home? Or at the AZGOP office? Or, somewhere else, perhaps?

    The pertinent bylaw: “2. Secretary - The secretary shall keep minutes of all state committee and executive committee meetings, transmit all calls for the meetings, and perform such other functions as may be incidental to the office or assigned by the state chairman. He/she shall be responsible to preserve all permanent records of the state committee and relinquish them to his/her successor.”

     Let me paraphrase: “The secretary shall keep...shall be responsible to preserve all permanent records...and relinquish them to…successor.” The above bylaw, IS the bylaw we all, INCLUDING YOU AND YOUR STAFF, must live by! NOWHERE in the above bylaw, does it suggest that your staff should be involved in this transfer of records – AT ALL! Like it or not, you AND your staff have no authority with what’s now clearly Secretary Mercer’s records. Further, there are NO restrictions on where she keeps them! My suggestion to you: Find these records, and surrender them all to Secretary Mercer. Immediately! It is inexcusable that six months have passed without appropiate transfer of these records!

CD4 Member-at-Large Rose Sperry To Yavapai County Republican State Committeemen: As many of you know the effort to remove AZGOP Chairman, Jonathan Lines from office has begun. Bear in mind that an attempt is also being made to remove the 1st and 2nd Vice Chairmen. We need all true Constitutional, Conservative, Grassroots State Committeemen to step up and participate if we are to right the wrongs which are constantly being inflicted on the Party of Lincoln. Please join us at the Bonn Fire Restaurant, 1667 S. Hwy 89A, at 11 am, Sat., Aug 5 in Chino Valley to acquire the tools for a successful removal.  This meeting is open only to those state committeemen who are willing to sign the recall petition and their spouses.  All others will be turned away at the door. For those of you from Yavapai County who signed a petition online, be aware that those are not valid Remove Lines petitions. To sign the correct petition please contact Rick Hennessey at 928-499-9342 or email him at – rickhe1@msn.com Petitions, proxies and a notary will be available at the Aug 5 meeting, however, I encourage you to make every attempt possible to reach Mr. Hennessey.  Those outside the county may contact Remove Lines spokesman Marianne Ferarri at  advocacy@indepthcritique.com

For Those Who Are Asking, Marianne Ferrari’s Group Must Collect 249 Signatures (20 percent) of 1,242 state committeemen for the “Call” meeting to remove AZGOP Chairman Jonathan Lines.

Former AZGOP Chairman Tom Morrissey: I'm happy to announce that I will be doing a two-hour music and talk show each week, where I will be talking about my years in the music industry as a member of  the Rock groups - The Echoes and The Ohio Express - and spinning records from the mid-1960s through the mid-1970's. We'll be talking about the friends I was fortunate enough to make during those days and the careers many of them went on to. My show is scheduled for broadcast beginning at 3 pm. (MST), Thurs., Aug 3 will continue every Thursday thereafter on KRIM FM 96.3, a Payson AZ radio station that is streamed on their website www.krimfm.com and on their FaceBook for those who don't live in the Payson area.Some of the shows will be pre-recorded due to my travel schedule.  Please take time to listen in for however long you can.  Could be fun.

Brian Reilly, Former LD22 PC: John McCain has fooled so many Arizona Republicans for so many years with his political maneuvering and posturing. In my opinion, he is a disgrace to the G.O.P. Another political chameleon, who has survived many skirmishes in the political arena, has now, finally met his match in the legal arena. Today, U.S. District Court Judge Susan Bolton punctuated Joe Arpaio’s law enforcement legacy with a much deserved criminal conviction. It’s about time! There will be many diehard Arpaio supporters who will claim that Joe Arpaio was the victim of a left-wing, political machine that was out to destroy him, while ignoring the people of color who were victimized by Arpaio’s rule over the MCSO. Many of Arpaio’s people have never attended court or witnessed court testimony regarding this matter. I’ve seen the evidence. I’ve listened to the court testimony. I’ve read the transcripts. I’ve watched his spin machine twist and turn trying to put Arpaio in the most favorable light. What finally exposed “America’s Most Expensive Former Sheriff” was the light of truth. My expectation is that Arpaio will fight the “guilty” verdict, but I believe that his effort will amount to nothing more than a faltering attempt to undo what has already been done. And, don’t expect President Donald Trump to pardon Joe Arpaio. During the 2016 general election, Joe Arpaio needed Donald Trump more than Trump needed Arpaio. For those of you who could see that Arpaio’s fawning over Trump was self-serving and opportunistic, I applaud you. I could see it as well. That’s why I voted for Donald Trump, but not for Joe Arpaio. In my opinion, a Joe Arpaio appeal in court will ultimately end in failure. I give the effort a thumbs down.

Chairwoman McDaniel: Where Are Democrats on Rep. Wasserman Schultz's Scandal?  "I think she should testify also, and I’m just going to take it from my own perspective as RNC Chair. If I had a staff member, an IT staff member, who had access to all of our data and all of our infrastructure and he had come under investigation and had smashed hard drives with a hammer and was trying to flee the country, you better believe I would be cooperating. I’d be doing everything I could to get to the bottom of what this individual was doing because it’s in the best interest of our national security. So to have the Democratic leadership- Nancy Pelosi, and I include her in this too, and Debbie Wasserman Schultz- be radio silent right now. And then to not see the mainstream media not cover this at all, it is a real problem for the American people, that we cannot get access to the truth in this situation. And thank you to the conservative media who’s been pushing this, because you’re the only reason that this is even being talked about."

· It’s the August Recess, and I’m heading back to Arizona right now. Truth be told, I’m very disappointed that the House did not postpone or cancel our August Congressional recess. Besides Obamacare repeal, the House still has tax reform, budget negotiations, and debt ceiling discussions to work through – just to name a few of the issues facing our nation. We are putting ourselves in a position where we will risk substantial progress on our agenda, and that would be unacceptable. I am excited, though, to return to Arizona and to meet with my constituents and businesses within my district. I have a busy week ahead and am looking forward to the Arizona sunshine and monsoon season.

CANDIDATES

300 word limit. If statements exceed the limit, it will be edited.

· US Senate candidate Dr Kelli Ward: The-Night-John-Mccain-Killed-The-GOP’s-Health-Care-Fight

· Dustin Stockton, Chief Strategist - Ward for Senate: In 2016, conservatives everywhere rallied to defeat the face of the RINO Establishment, John McCain, but we came up short. That failure lives with me every day. With every liberal vote McCain casts, every rotten, backstabbing rebuke of President Trump and the America First agenda, the reminder of what could have been rips my heart out my chest. We should have had an uncompromising conservative who speaks the truth at all times. We could have had a fighter. We could have had a physician, not a typical politician desperately clinging on to power above all. We could have had someone who would legislate the America First agenda. We must forget about what could have been and focus on not repeating our huge 2016 mistake. If you will stand with me, you have my word, I will campaign day and night. I will leave no stone unturned. I will offer my blood sweat and tears to make sure Arizonan’s elect Kelli Ward as our new U.S. Senator in 2018. We can not afford to elect Mini-McCain, the Sanctuary Senator, Jeff Flake. Help me elect Kelli.

· Anthony Barry Campaign Manager to Incumbent Martha McSally: Just days after career politician Ann Kirkpatrick announced that she has moved to Tucson and will be running against McSally, our race has changed from "leans republican" to "toss up".The reason for the change comes from the support of Nancy Pelosi and the national Democrats. The pundits think that this race is going to be a fight to the very end for every last vote but they forgot about one thing. . . YOU! Your continued support as one of Martha's wingmen have made all the difference and is the reason why we were successful last November. Now, Kirkpatrick, Pelosi, and the Democrat establishment have set their sights on Martha McSally. We are determined to fight back but we can't do it without you. Our race has just been re-classified and it is going to be one of the most competitive in the nation. Stand with Martha!

· Dr. Kelli Ward, candidate for U.S Senate. John McCain saved Obamacare despite his campaign promises. I knew McCain couldn't be trusted, which is why I challenged him in the 2016 Republican primary... where he and his allies spent more than $10 million to defeat me, outspending my campaign by a margin of about 10-1. I took on McCain's notorious political machine to try to prevent last night's betrayal.  Sadly, being right about McCain won't help the people of Arizona and millions of people across the country who will continue to suffer under the skyrocketing premiums and deductibles of Obamacare. This is because a small group of NeverTrump Republicans teamed with ALL the Democrats to hold the America First agenda hostage. But I'm determined to fight and put an end to this... That's why I'm challenging one of these establishment "Republicans" right now -- and I'm counting on you to make sure that we don't give Sanctuary Senator Flake the opportunity to betray his campaign promises after 2018. People ask me all the time what they can do to help, and the biggest thing I need right now is financial support. If you can invest I will make sure that Sanctuary Senator Flake can't pull a McCain when we FINALLY repeal Obamacare, simplify the tax code, secure our border, and enforce our immigration laws!   P.S. Don't be fooled by the political theater last night. The Republican sellouts last night, Murkowski and McCain, just won re-election to six-year terms. Like all of his votes on this issue, Flake only voted to repeal Obamacare when he was assured his vote wouldn't count. If Flake is re-elected it will be his turn to provide cover for the other sellouts. Please donate to help me make sure that doesn't happen.

· Dr. Kelli Ward - Donald Trump is the leader of the new Republican Party. Jeff Flake is outside the new mainstream that exists. Neither of them (Flake or McCain) are putting forward policy to achieve the America First agenda that Donald Trump has touted on the campaign trail and since he became the President. What they should be doing is finding ideas they agree with and putting those forward so everyone gets a win across the board.”
