Chronicle of a Leftist’s Battle Against Conservatives
You’ve seen the recent reports of the defamation lawsuits flying back and forth between Democrat activists and the MCRC, while reviewing the cast of characters we found a doozy and Chairman Tyler Bowyer has some explaining to do. Did you know the self-employed lawyer hired by MCRC Chairman Tyler Bowyer is actually a leftist criminal defense attorney with a long history of bashing Republicans? But there she is, listed right here on the maricopacountygop.com website as “General Counsel.”
Karyl Krug is listed with Arizona State Bar with an area of focus listed as “None.” A quick look at her social media posts, however, shows a clear focus on hating Republicans. Her litany of insults against the GOP and our candidates and officeholders is long and personal. Her tirades will leave our readers wondering how or why Chairman Bowyer chose her to be the party’s legal counsel. Is she a Trojan horse? What better way to beat up Republicans than from within?
We took a look at some of her Facebook posts. While working as an attorney in Texas, she called Ted Cruz a “scary inhuman creep.” She said Sarah Palin was “dumb.”
Sure, not every Republican voter supports every Republican candidate. But what do you make of this: she definitely a Trump-hater:
And fellow Texan Rick Perry is a “dunce”
And she’s a lifelong Dem:
Krug’s a member of a Facebook group, with 254 members, called “Committee to Recall Gov. Doug Ducey.” She’s one of 50 members of a group asking ASU to stop investing in fossil fuels, and another called “Watchdog” where she posted this:
Her ridicule does not end with conservatives, the Republican party and conservative politicians. She’s ripped the “religious right” and now “Christians” and “fundamentalists” are to blame for child molestation:
Krug is a regular blogger at www.liberalamerican.org, where her articles fall under the category “Republican Watch.”
Her first article chronicles the events leading up to her being fired by a judge from her job as an attorney for refusing to work with a non-attorney. She blamed her career-ending event on Republicans:
“Every one of the people involved in what happened to me, except possibly Diane herself, is a Republican.”(http://www.liberalamerica.org/2013/11/30/arizona-calling-topless-lawyer/)
She blasted Sarah Palin’s book about Christmas, with Krug writing:
“The Puritans were just against Christmas, unlike Atheists or any other non-Christian, who could not care less about this topic, other than being weary of yet another foolish Republican fiction being nattered about endlessly. The only revisionists here are Sarah Palin and the current Christian right.” (http://www.liberalamerica.org/2013/12/10/sarah-palin-doesnt-know-jack-frost-christmas/)
In writing about the judge who fired her, she also dumps on Sheriff Arpaio and Jan Brewer:
“Judges in Arizona are supposedly picked in a non-partisan process in which people from different parties are vetted and then nominated and, in the case of Governor Brewer, she picks her favorite person who just happens to be a loyal Republican. However, there was not a speck of evidence on this questionnaire that Judge Rayes, lifelong Republican, in any way, shape, or form identifies himself as a Republican. Lie of omission? Hair-splitting? Does not read with full comprehension? Sneaky? Any way you cut it, it is not good. But, it is so like a Republican from Maricopa County, Arizona. Sheriff Joe and his tank could not have done a better job of rolling over the question asked.” (http://www.liberalamerica.org/2014/02/13/federal-judicial-nominee-omits-party-on-questionnaire/)
And we’re not quite sure what to make of this published statement, other than she seems to be narrowing down her hatred toward conservatives:
“Today’s Know Nothing Party (a.k.a. the Tea Party or conservative Republicans or political Evangelicals) seems insanely proud of the fact that they know almost nothing. They censured Senator John McCain despite his years of demeaning and cringe-worthy pandering to their blatant stupidity. Can the Tea Party last much longer?” (http://www.liberalamerica.org/2014/03/13/arizona-can-our-know-nothing-leaders-understand-english/)
This excerpt below confirms it, and really has us demanding to know how Bowyer could ever bring her in to help the MCRC, in any capacity, when she’s already completely ridiculed his committee:
“MCRC is the group that consistently throws its support behind Sheriff Joe Arpaio, a national Tea Party hero who has cost Maricopa County, Arizona, tens of millions of dollars in civil settlements and who was recently found by a federal court in Phoenix to have engaged in racial profiling and unreasonably lengthy detentions of Hispanics.” (http://www.liberalamerica.org/2014/01/27/arizona-gop-votes-formally-censure-john-mccain/)
“When the Arizona GOP censures the U.S. Senator who served five plus brutal years in a prisoner of war camp in Hanoi, but praises a racist lawsuit magnet sheriff who starves jailed prisoners for a mild display of free speech, you know exactly which side of the Hanoi Hilton the Arizona GOP is on.” (http://www.liberalamerica.org/2014/01/27/arizona-gop-votes-formally-censure-john-mccain/)
Lastly, publicly available voting records indicate since moving to Arizona Krug registered as an independent but voted a Democrat ballot in the 2012 primary. While in Texas, Krug ran for office on the same ticket with Hillary Clinton. Check out this 2008 photo and ask yourself if you think she’ll do a good job defending Republicans.
Regardless of what you think, or thought, of Chairman Bowyer, this is the not the kind of person the county party committee should entrust with any information about our committee or our plans, let alone our legal defense. In fact, it leads us to question his judgement in failing to spend even an hour, as we did, doing simple research into her background before putting the party’s fate in her hands. Let’s keep wolves in sheep’s clothing out of the Grand Old Party.
