LD24 PC Tristan Manos: "A picture is worth a thousand words"... "What you see is what you get"... How about this photo at the AZGOP website, 6 months after the AZGOP elections? For 1 thing, how about it, just in and of itself? All the more so, how about it, given the Chairman's campaign rhetoric, his statement soon after the AZGOP elections, and his ongoing rhetoric to this day? As for me, a stakeholder positively and proactively committed to the overall good of the AZGOP (and that for which it stands), I called it to the AZGOP's attention (including the AZGOP Chairman, himself) over one month ago via email. I added how there's an opportunity for opening things up to a far greater and wider-ranging (therefore, more inspiring) photographic representation of the AZGOP (and, likewise, that for which it stands) at, of all places, "The Only Official Newsletter Website of the Arizona Republican Party!" But, last I checked, that same photo is still there. And so I say, "Mr. Lines: Take down that photo." And some people wonder why there's far more than just some buzz -- it's a movement, really -- to call attention to some things going on within the AZGOP (by commission or omission), and why there's people working to resolve these matters, once and for all. How it plays out, we shall see. It may just end up being for the overall good of the Republican Party throughout Arizona (more than only the AZGOP), now and in the future." Contact:

Activist Stephen Sivigliano: The traitor to the GOP has taken his hatred for Trump way over the edge, totally ignoring his AZ constituents and all of the American people. We, in AZ, are ashamed and embarrassed to call him "our Senator."  It's a wonder his clone, Flake, didn't vote with him.  Maybe next time, Jeffy.   Granted, the bill he killed with a “no” vote, didn't do much, but it would have represented a start (humble) in the right direction.  Maybe both of them should just put a D behind their names, or RINO. 

Tom Morrissey Past Chairman AZ GOP to Former LD 22 PC Brian Reilly. There you go again spouting inaccuracies like the true revisionist you are. You begin your commentary 8-1-17-Briefs by seeming to spank John McCain for his misdeeds and how they "offend" you.  (Really Brian?) Then you rush off to address the man whom you seem to be obsessed with, Former Sheriff Joe Arpaio. You just can't seem to understand that this all goes back to the Obama Administration and Eric Holder (who refused to do his job) going after a Constitutionally elected county sheriff for doing the job he was elected to do.  Joe Arpaio went up against the Establishment in both parties and did not back down, even when everyone else did. What part of Illegal (Alien) don't you get, Brian? Then as far as Joe flaunting all over Donald Trump? Wrong again.  I was part of that campaign and was there every time Donald Trump came to Arizona because I drove in the motorcades.  What I saw was a true friendship between two men who were dedicated to the same ideal, love of country. Joe Arpaio, went out of his way to stand with our President when there were very few other elected officials who did. And don't be so sure that the President won't pardon him or even need to do that, after the appeal is heard and an opinion rendered.  This ain't over yet.  Not by a long shot -Brian Reilly (Former LD 22 PC).

LD6 Precinct Captain Jacqueline Leslie as read off my social media feed as follows: A lot of fellow Republicans are scratching their heads over Kelli Ward's latest claim that she is beating Jeff Flake in a poll that was coincidentally done by her campaign. If there was an outside source none was ever revealed. The timing of this poll being released is coincidentally after her dismal second quarter fundraising period which shows that she is still $136,829 in debt. What’s makes this even more concerning is the fact that Remington Research conducted a poll on 11/16/16 where the 3rd question was if the Republican Primary candidates were Jeff Flake, Kelli Ward and Jeff DeWit for whom would you vote? The response was DeWit 38%, Flake 30%, Ward 15%, undecided 17%.

    According to Ward’s poll on 7/21/17 in a four way senate race the votes would be as follows: Ward 30%, Flake 19%, DeWit 5%, Graham 2%, and undecided 44%. DeWit went from 38% in 11/16 down to 5% in 7/17? This makes absolutely no sense since he has done an exceptional job as state treasurer and was highly regarded as Donald Trump’s COO/CFO. huffington post poll and polling-shows-ward-surging-against-flake

    Ward pulled the same stunt during her run against McCain where she lost the primary with 39.9% of the vote to McCain’s 51.2%. The subject of this Breitbart article during that race is: Five-term DC insider Sen. John McCain is in a dead heat with challenger Dr. Kelli Ward among GOP voters presented with a choice between the two, a poll released Tuesday reveals. poll: kelli-ward-ties--mccain-in-AZ. Interestingly, Jennifer Lawrence and Dustin Stockton, two former Breitbart employees, are currently working on the Ward campaign.  It looks like the Ward campaign has some serious explaining to do!

A High Level Lawman Commented To Briefs: “I am absolutely beside myself over Federal Judge Bolton's decision on Sheriff Joe Arpaio.  She has completed the lynching of this man. Joe was doing the job (as a constitutionally elected sheriff) while he was ordered to not do the job he was elected by the people  to do.  In any world that has common sense, the judge would be committing a crime by ordering him to not enforce the law. He was denied his constitutional right of a trial by jury. They did not prove his guilt during the "trial". This is a MISDEMEANOR equivalent to a barking dog complaint. Contempt of court is not a crime.  What an absolute shame this is.  And I cannot understand how Sessions allowed this trial to go forward.  A Kangaroo Court based on a political witch hunt.”

The AFA Team: - Chairman Lines Dancing the Two-Step: After reading the fictitious article by AZGOP Chairman Lines, 7-30-17 Briefs we have to wonder, why didn't Graham trust Treasurer Lines enough to share the debts of the party with him? If Graham didn't trust his treasurer with the facts, why should State Committeemen trust him with the entirety of AZGOP? Lines calls his administration the most transparent in years. That is a familiar line, seems we've heard it before. Oh, yes, Barack Obama said exactly the same thing. We didn't believe Obama and we don't see any signs of transparency from Lines. He's pulling a Hillary - blaming others for his own decisions. Of course, he has the authority to hand over the permanent records, which includes the printouts from the various online elections, sign in sheets from AZGOP meetings, Credentials count sheets, minutes, etc. If he doesn't have the authority, he's the wrong man for the job. How hard can it be to say to the prior secretary (if she is hoarding the records), hand over the records or we will take action against you? If he can't control the last secretary, how can he control AZGOP? First he says the prior secretary has the records and then he says Mercer is welcome to come by the AZGOP office again to "inspect" records. Why the double standard?

    One of our team members was present at AZGOP when Mercer went to obtain the records. What was said was similar to this. Two attorneys told her she could inspect the records but not that day. Why? The records were not at the office! Later in the conversation, they said no records could leave the building. So which is it? The records are not there but they can't be out of the building? As to Bob Lettieri, he waited four months for the books. He got a new bank account, a new accounting system with only a balance forward. If he is happy with that, he's making a huge mistake because he will be held accountable for past and current records for years after his term is over. AFA recommends that every State Committeeman who believes that duplicity has no place in the AZGOP or anywhere else among honest people, they will run to find a "call" letter to sign to recall Lines.
