“Worsley co-sponsors SB 1062, votes for it, campaigns on it, and then calls on the governor to veto it.”
(Mesa, AZ) Earlier this week, in a flip-flop that only John Kerry could love, State Senator Bob Worsley urged Governor Brewer to veto the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (aka SB1062) after not only voting for the legislation, but also co-sponsoring and touting the legislation on the campaign trail.
“This epic flip-flop says a lot about what kind of politician Bob Worsley is,” saidHeap for State Senate spokesman Dan Caldwell. “Instead of taking the time to understand the legislation and make an informed vote, Worsley instead tried to make a political decision to curry favor with conservatives only to flip-flop and call for the veto of a bill he co-sponsored when serious opposition emerged.
“It begs the obvious question,” continued Caldwell, “does Bob Worsley even bother to read legislation he sponsors? Or does he just throw his name onto bills that he thinks will benefit him politically in his next election without any real consideration about what the legislation will actually do?
“The voters of Legislative District 25 deserve better,” concluded Caldwell. ”They deserve a State Senator who is willing to take a principled stand on important issues – not a state senator whose principles are completely dependent on which way the political winds are blowing.”
