Most voters believe the role of an elected prosecutor, sheriff, or elections official, is to enforce the laws on the books. Prosecutors and Executive and Administrative offices always have some discretion in how they run their offices according to law, but they recognize the constitutional limits of their office. The people and their elected legislators write the laws. County officials administer them.
Events across the country have shown that when liberal activists take control of prosecution or administration of law, they will overstep their bounds with little regard for facts and the law.
Maricopa County is a battleground for control of the US Senate and for the Presidency. What many Arizona voters may not realize is that it is also a battle for control of the Arizona legislature and many important county offices.
Voters in Maricopa County elected Adrian Fontes after a failed Presidential preference election in 2016. After 20+ years of non-partisan elections, Helen Purcell’s office did not foresee record voter turnout in 2016. Long lines and understaffed polls, created a backlash and voters held her office accountable. They replaced her non-partisan and administration approach with Adrian Fontes, a man who is partisan, activist, and holds dissenters in low regard, telling one voter to Go F-yourself!. During this election year alone, Fontes’ partisan and activist efforts have been slapped down twice by the courts.
When the typically left leaning Arizona Republic posts Sunday news about Fontes failures, you hope that Independent and Republican voters will get the message.
For County Attorney, Allister Adel faces Liberal activist Julie Gunningle. Who is Gunnigle? Well, for starters, read her Twitter page. She is the type of activist prosecutor that would be a dream for outside groups backed by George Soros. She calls the County Attorney and her office racists without evidence, and vows to be an “anti-racist” activist. She supports Sanctuary City Policies and she is rabidly pro-abortion, not wanting to enforce existing Arizona laws.
If conservatives need motivation to defeat Julie Gunnigle, look at her recent tweets: Gunnigle calls for the defunding of the Phoenix Police during the riots.
For other radical progressive views see her other tweets.
Voters in Maricopa County need to wake up and inform their neighbors about the consequences of a blue wave in AZ. If the GOP allows Democratic activists to run county offices, or to take control of the legislature, Arizona’s government will be transformed into an activists playground just like California, Oregon, and Washington State. Vote the Republican slate.
