AZ Civil Rights Initiative to have press conference about lawsuit at 11:00am

What: The Arizona Civil Rights Initiative (AzCRI) will discuss our injunction and lawsuit against the Arizona Secretary of State filed in the Maricopa County Superior Court.

Max McPhail, Executive Director of the Arizona Civil Rights Initiative, will provide examples of valid petition signatures that have been deemed invalid by the County Recorders.

When: Thursday, August 28th at 11:00 am

Where: Outside the Maricopa County Elections Office

Phoenix, AZ 85003

The Arizona Civil Rights Initiative is dedicated to giving the people of Arizona the opportunity to end preferential treatment based on race, sex, ethnicity or national origin by state or local governments. AzCRI will make Arizona a place of equal opportunity for all, not a state that uses discrimination as a tool to create “diversity.” Achieving “diversity” should never be an excuse to discriminate.

  1. Precinct Committeeman says

    No one has beat this system yet. I wonder how these guys think this measure, as good as it is, will win. Jan Brewer does a good job. Given the complexity of the signature gathering for this measure, I’m not surprise that, this year, it is short of the required number. I hope they beat it, but I’m not banking on it.

  2. Considering Maricopa County’s deadline for getting the ballots to the printers is today, this lawsuit and press conference is nothing more than a dog and pony show. It won’t make a lick of difference because there’s nothing the courts can do in this situation.

  3. To all the anti-immigrant extremists, why isn’t SA covering this?
    Gordon recall is over
    Official Press release:

    We at American Citizens United have made the decision not to file our petitions to recall Mayor Phil Gordon. This decision is based on some of the technicalities of the process, and the complex challenging task we undertook, on behalf of the Citizens of Phoenix. We believe we did our very best, but did not anticipate some of the stumbling blocks along they way.

    First of all, I would like very much to thank all of our dedicated, loyal, volunteers who unflinchingly carried on thier grassroots efforts even in the extreme Arizona heat during the months of July and August. We will forever be grateful to you!

    I am truly grateful to all of those who generously donated to our cause, and placed their trust in us. Please be assured we worked long and hard. The trust and support from the Citizens of Phoenix was indeed moving. We thank KFYI for providing ACU with a venue to communicate our important message to the Phoenix community and its citizens. You can be assured that we will continue our mission to work for the betterment of our City and hold our leaders accountable for their actions. We will continue to examine Mayor Gordon’s leadership including his latest actions; which in our opinion have escalated to an unacceptable degree of excessive impropriety in Washington and locally. “Mayor Gordon, we will continue to hold your feet to the fire!”

    We plan to continue as an organization, united as American Citizens. This experience was priceless and we learned a lot from it. I invite talented experienced people to join us as we continue on our mission.

    We thank our thousands of citizens who supported us with your signatures and whom gratefully thanked us for undertaking this effort. Don’t feel as though we failed you. We all would have indeed failed, if we had not tried to do what’s right and merely stood by on the sidelines.

    To quote Winston Churchill, “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”

    Please check our website at http://www.azpseil.cloverpad.org for news and updates of our ongoing endevors. We must unite as American citizens for the good of our city, state and this wonderful country. It will take many of us to make a difference. Please join our efforts in protecting and supporting our way of life in the United States of America. “United we stand, divided we fall.”

    We are sincerely grateful to all the citizens of Phoenix who sought us out to sign the petitions,

    Anna Gaines, M.Ed. Founder, Chairman of ‘AMERICAN CITIZENS UNITED’
