The Arizona Republic, is not a trustworthy source for news. There was a time in years gone by, when you could pick up the latest edition of the local paper, and be reasonably sure the news was fairly complete and accurate. Today, it is hard to discern between the editorial page and front page headlines.
The Republic just published a list of candidates for public office in Arizona. One of the most critical races in the upcoming primary is the contest for Maricopa County Attorney. In the left corner is Rick Romley, friend of the illegals who recently begged the Governor not to sign SB 1070.
When she did sign it, Romley quickly came out with a new program designed to undercut the new law and render it ineffective. Romley wants to be the County Attorney, but finds it inconvenient to enforce the law.
On the right is attorney Bill Montgomery, the only conservative in this race, who also wants to be County Attorney, but unlike his RINO rival, is primed for challenging the burden illegal immigration places on each and every citizen of the State of Arizona.
The Arizona Republic either does not know, or does not want to know that Bill Montgomery is running for office. After all, has there ever been a stronger advocate for illegal immigration than the Republic? You can look for Montgomery’s name in their list of candidates, but you won’t find him. He isn’t there. Is that ignorance or malevolence? You make the call, but either way, there is no excuse for the company that claims to be the paper of record.
Bill Montgomery is a Conservative Republican, seasoned prosecutor, former Deputy County Attorney, West Point graduate and Gulf War veteran who is running on a simple platform: Enforce Our Laws – All of Them. “While the Interim County Attorney has signaled ‘retreat’ on fighting illegal immigration, and wants to appease those who do not want to see serious enforcement of our laws against illegal immigration, I vow to enforce all our laws, when I am County Attorney,” said Montgomery. “The days of “cafeteria” enforcement – picking and choosing which laws to uphold, based on personal whims or on which direction the political winds are blowing on a particular day – will soon be over”. Bill Montgomery’s conservative record and commitment to enforcing all of our laws, stands in stark contrast to Rick Romley’s record in just the last month.
“I am committed to enforcing all of our laws and working with law enforcement to give them the tools they need to do their job,” said Montgomery. “Unlike my opponent, I welcome the passage of SB 1070 and would not beg the Governor to veto it like Romley did. But more importantly, I will not use loopholes and excuses to avoid prosecuting illegal immigrants in Maricopa County who break the law like Romley has.”
Bill Montgomery’s bid to become our next County Attorney continues to rack up impressive, high-profile endorsements. His campaign has garnered support from Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, the Phoenix Law Enforcement Association (PLEA), the Arizona Police Association (APA) and U.S. Representative Trent Franks, who have all joined the chorus of calls for a conservative Republican for County Attorney.
