Interview with Conspiracy Theorist, Gail Golec

The latest video by Scottsdale Studios features conspiracy theorist Gail Golec in an almost 10-minute ramble about 2020 Maricopa County ballots.

Gail Golec

Gail Golec is a Republican Precinct Committeewoman in Mirada precinct located in Legislative District 23 in Scottsdale. Her effective date was August 4, 2020 which means she was appointed by the Maricopa Board of Supervisors and her election to precinct committeeman was cancelled. She got a free ride into her elected party position. The interview is conducted by someone who goes by the name of “Michael.”

The first objectionable thing Golec says is that the Board of Supervisors is being “obstructionist.” The reality is that the Board of Supervisors must serve all citizens of Maricopa County. They do not serve a tiny pack of conspiracy theorists. Because of this, they are obligated by law to assess any/all risks of potential violations of both state and federal law. Election matters are governed by state and federal law. Turning over ballots to a tiny pack of conspiracy theorists could put the county and its citizens into a major lawsuit that could cost taxpayer millions of dollars. The BOS has to take this into consideration should they decide to expose these ballots to a tiny pack of conspiracy theorists.

This is not being obstructionists. This is not being Democrat. This is not being Republican. This is simply following good governance and the law.

Gail Golec is NOT a certified election officer with the State of Arizona. She states that she has been a PC for two years. This is not enough time, knowledge or experience to understand how elections work here in Arizona. She is not an elections attorney. In Arizona, there are only a handful of people who have an exhaustive knowledge of election law, process and procedure. I doubt that Gail Golec has even read the Election Procedures Manual issued by the Secretary of State and approved by the Attorney General and Governor.

Golec argues that the BOS will not allow the “audit” to be conducted at the Maricopa County Tabulation and Election Center (MCTEC) because the Supervisors have said that it is “our building.” What Gail fails to understand is that the building is the property of Maricopa County and the Supervisors have full and proper legal authority to control the building to the point that they can task the County Sheriff, Paul Penzone, to secure the building just like PCSO controls and secures the jail. Just because it is county property does not mean any tiny pack of conspiracy theorists can waltz into the building and take it over.

Gail then makes the claim that there is international cyber warfare taking place and moving the ballots out of the MCTEC vault will subject them to exposure. The mention of international cyber warfare is a tenet of the conspiracy theory being floated by tiny packs like this.

Gail makes the statement. “they (BOS) can run but they can’t hide” as if to suggest that the Supervisors are “on the run.” This is ridiculous. The Supervisors are very much in public continuing to govern the county while they deal with this tiny pack of conspiracy theorists. She even claims that “this crime was committed throughout the entire State of Arizona.” Golec fails to name the crime committed. The Maricopa County has not arrested anyone. The Arizona Attorney General or a Grand Jury has not indicted anyone. There is no crime.

Golec then suggests that some “honest” County Recorder should stand up and say, “I want a fair and free election in my county.” What does that even mean? Gail needs to remember that Maricopa County now has a new County Recorder – a Republican named Stephen Richer. Recorder Richer defeated Adrian Fontes, a Democrat who ran the 2020 Elections. One would think that Golec could ask Recorder Richer to find the “crime” that was committed by the former Recorder who should have won in order to cover up the crime that was committed.

Golec states that there are 16 counties in Arizona. There are actually 15 counties in Arizona. Each County Recorder knows their peers in the other counties and are part of an association of county recorders. Does Golec think one moment that someone in this group will go full blown conspiracy theorist and turn on their association peers?

The conspiracy theorist interviewer then asks Golec a question by training his fire on Attorney General Mark Brnovich (which he sorely mispronounces) suggesting that the AG is also in on the conspiracy theory coverup. The tag-team interview “question” allows Golec to cite ARS §16-624 which addresses the disposition of official returns and ballots. She then confuses ballots and the canvass (two different documents). Golec said she spoke with Recorder Richer about transferring the “canvass” to the Treasurer, John Allen (also newly elected) which did not take place. Here’s what the statute says:

After the canvass has been completed, the officer in charge of elections shall deposit the package or envelope containing the ballots in a secure facility managed by the county treasurer, who shall keep it unopened and unaltered for twenty-four months for elections for a federal office or for six months for all other elections, at which time he shall destroy it without opening or examining the contents.

ARS § 16-624.A.

A few things here: The statute mentions the canvass but it clearly states, “the officer in charge of elections shall deposit the package or envelope containing the ballots in a secure facility managed by the county treasurer…” There is a difference between the canvass and the ballots. The other thing that Golec fails to understand is that MCTEC has a warehouse and vault large enough to hold the 2.1 million ballots until they can be placed under the management of the County Treasurer in the vault located under the courts at 3rd Avenue & Jefferson Street but only after any adjudication has completed. She does not say that she spoke with Treasurer Allen over the custody issue.

Golec then returns to the theme of, “we want this audit in that building” by arguing that the State Senate reigns over the County Board of Supervisors – clearly another failure to understand the role of elective bodies and separation of powers. She repeats that, “we cannot allow anything to be moved from that building (MCTEC).” Statements like this suggest that the audit is doomed to fail and the the outcome will further affirm the conspiracy theory.

The interviewer then admits on camera that he met Gail Golec during a protest at the County Recorder when “we didn’t know what was going on” and “we were just a bunch of enraged people.” He then states that she has “very quickly risen to be one of the big players of the citizenry.” The interviewer has it all wrong and Gail Golec has it all wrong. They both fail to understand election law and how our election process works.

Gail Golec self identifies as being part of the Save America Team and that “we are definitely ready to take back our country” and “we know that there was a cover-up and we know that we are going to discover it.”

Her final ramble goes on about fighting the media, censorship and contacting their Reps because of “Covid” – all signs of conspiracy theory delusion.

Here’s the full interview:

Audio: Sonny Borrelli & Staci Burk

Here is the audio of the recorded conversation between Arizona State Senator Sonny Borrelli and conspiracy theorist Staci Burk regarding turning over alleged evidence of shredded ballots that were obtained by Earl Shafer while dumpster diving on Maricopa County property.

This conversation breaks down quickly as Borrelli and Burk argue over who should have the ballots.

Trump Lost. Get Over It!

Time to toss a grenade in the room.

This video is complete bullshit! This is nothing more than playing on people’s fears and anxiety by misleading them down a dead end of misinformation.

Scottsdale Studios put this together and I will find out who paid them. And if taxpayer dollars were used, a complaint will be filed.

I also challenge this amateur video crew to conduct the same interviews in downtown Tempe, downtown Phoenix or even downtown Gilbert.

The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors have done NOTHING wrong, unethical or illegal. They did their job.

If you really believe the election was stolen in Maricopa County, do you not think that the former Democrat County Recorder would have won along with two new progressive Democrat Supervisors so they could cover up the steal? If you recall, the first few days after the election, two Republican supervisors were losing. Even the new Republican County Recorder knows the election was not stolen!

The truth is that starting in 2018, Democrat activists outworked Republicans building a machine ready for 2020. They identified and registered thousands of new people and motivated them to vote against Trump.

Why was there no outcry after the 2018 General Election? Why was there no outcry after the 2020 Primary Election? Why now? Where were you people when we lost the US Senate seat in 2018 and 2020? Where were you people when we lost the Superintendent of Public Instruction, Secretary of State and Corporation Commission seats???

Where you lose all credibility – besides not being able to make a logical argument or provide evidence – is when you leave our other Republican candidates behind.

Your fatal flaw is you put all your faith in Donald Trump to be your savior while failing to fight for the other Republican candidates.

Trump lost in Maricopa County because there were more people who didn’t vote for him than did vote for him.

Your problem is not with the Board of Supervisors. It’s not with the new Republican Recorder. Your problem is with the people who got tired of Trump’s bullying, antics, drama, incompetence, tantrums, authoritarianism and performance. Your problem is with the 51,465 freedom-loving, anti-big government people who voted for the Libertarian candidate.

The election is over and sure, there will be an audit but that won’t be enough to break your cognitive dissonance that Trump actually did lose.

If Republicans don’t get focused and back on mission instead of living in the past, this state is going to turn deeper purple and then dark blue in 2022.

Calling Out Crazy and Dangerous

We’re being told that January 6, 2021 will be the next opportunity for President Trump to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. That’s when both houses of Congress will convene to count and certify the results of the Electoral College.

Trump supporters are banking on Vice President Pence to hear the objections of members of the House and Senate before pushing for an alternative to the long-held historical practice of finalizing the vote and selecting the next President of the United States.

President Trump and his army of supporters are leaning heavily on Vice President Pence to thwart this process and re-elect Donald J. Trump as the next President. Social media is ablaze with speculation about what will happen and the consequences of Pence’s action.

We’re hearing that riots will break out across America as the left sets fire to anything their torches touch. This is not hard to believe since the left has a track record of hyper-emotional reaction and violence to events to which they object.

On my Twitter feed, I’ve been clear that I don’t expect anything to change with regard to our election results. (I’ve been working in elections for over 30 years.) Our system works pretty well, especially here in Arizona and frankly, Democrats were motivated to kick DJT out of the White House.

Some of my fellow Republicans – and I use that term questionably since many of them behave more like they’re in a cult – have said that if Pence doesn’t fall in line with his boss, their will be an uprising across America. In other words, they plan on unleashing a rebellion.

I don’t believe it.

When they claim they’ll start another civil war, I don’t think they have the conviction let alone fortitude to do so. Most of them would rather head down to the State Capitol and hold another rally in which they complain about the election while waving Gadsden flags and making speeches. These are the patriots on paper.

But there are others using anonymous online identities making threats of rebellion and all-out war to defend the Dear Leader. These are the dangerous and crazy ones and they need to be called out.

In this country, we have an institution called the Rule of Law and when you follow it and exhaust it, you need to respect it and its final outcome. It’s how we govern here in America.

This author in no way advocates for violence, let alone civil unrest or war. If you do not like the outcome of our elections, legal rulings or legislative process, you have other peaceful forms of protest available.

Speaker Rusty Bowers Addresses Calls for the Legislature to Overturn 2020 Certified Election Results

STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX – Arizona House Speaker Rusty Bowers today issued the following statement:

This week, Rudy Giuliani, Jenna Ellis, and others representing President Donald Trump came to Arizona with a breathtaking request:  that the Arizona Legislature overturn the certified results of last month’s election and deliver the state’s electoral college votes to President Trump.  The rule of law forbids us to do that.

Mr. Giuliani and Ms. Ellis made their case here at least twice—on Monday, at an unofficial public gathering hosted by a small group of legislators; and again on Tuesday, during a closed-door meeting at the State Capitol with Republican leaders from both chambers of the Legislature.  Both times, the Trump team made claims that the election was tainted by fraud but presented only theories, not proof.  U.S. Attorney General William P. Barr said on Tuesday that he, too, has “not seen fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome of the election.”

Even if such evidence existed, the Arizona Legislature simply couldn’t do what is being asked.  Under our state’s constitution, the Legislature can act only when it is in session, and the Legislature could call itself into a special session only with the support of a bipartisan supermajority of its members.

That won’t materialize, but even if did, the Legislature couldn’t provide the recourse the President’s team seeks.  The U.S. Constitution authorizes each state to appoint presidential electors “in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct.”  For decades, Arizona law has required that the voters elect the state’s electors on Election Day—this year, on November 3rd.  And under a law the Republican-led Legislature passed just three years ago, the state’s electors are required to cast their votes for the candidates who received the most votes in the official statewide election canvass.  Enacted after the 2016 presidential election, in which President Trump won the electoral college but not the popular vote, the law was aimed at ensuring that Arizona’s electors would remain faithful to the vote of the people.

So under current Arizona law, the presidential electors who were elected on November 3 must, after the canvass is completed, vote for the winners of the popular vote.  Nothing in the U.S. Constitution or the decisions of the U.S. Supreme Court even suggests that the Arizona Legislature could retroactively appoint different electors who would cast their ballots for different candidates.  The Trump legal team has cited McPherson v. Blacker (1892), to claim that the legislature can “resume the power [to appoint electors] at any time.”  And it is true that the Arizona Legislature could alter the method of appointing electors prospectively.  But it cannot undo the election of electors whom the voters already voted for.  As the Supreme Court made clear in Bush v. Gore (2000), “[w]hen the state legislature vests the right to vote for President in its people, the right to vote as the legislature has prescribed is fundamental.”

No election is perfect, and if there were evidence of illegal votes or an improper count, then Arizona law provides a process to contest the election: a lawsuit under state law.  But the law does not authorize the Legislature to reverse the results of an election.

As a conservative Republican, I don’t like the results of the presidential election.  I voted for President Trump and worked hard to reelect him.  But I cannot and will not entertain a suggestion that we violate current law to change the outcome of a certified election.

I and my fellow legislators swore an oath to support the U.S. Constitution and the constitution and laws of the state of Arizona.  It would violate that oath, the basic principles of republican government, and the rule of law if we attempted to nullify the people’s vote based on unsupported theories of fraud.  Under the laws that we wrote and voted upon, Arizona voters choose who wins, and our system requires that their choice be respected.

Forty years ago next month, President Ronald Reagan reminded us that while the “orderly transfer of authority” is a “commonplace occurrence” for Americans, “[i]n the eyes of many in the world, this every-4-year ceremony we accept as normal is nothing less than a miracle.”  Now, Americans are being reminded once again never to take for granted what President Reagan correctly described as “the continuity which is the bulwark of our Republic.”

How America Gets Its First Black Woman President

The real question is will she be a Republican or Democrat?

Time for a crazy political scenario. This spins off insider speculation that Trump will pull out of his re-election bid before he loses. It may sound far-fetched but we do live in crazy political times.

Trump is going to lose the 2020 election. He knows this and I believe the Republican Establishment knows it too. It’s inevitable and as many of us have been warning since 2015, the man has brought it on himself.

Trump is a quitter, especially when the going gets tough. And the tough is really going tough and tougher. Some Phoenicians remember when he pulled out of the development of a high rise in the Biltmore area. He knew when to cut his losses and move on. That’s what savvy business leaders do. He’s been that way his entire life. Bankruptcy after bankruptcy, change of plan after change of plan. He’s won some and he’s walked away. Running the country has become too much of a hassle for someone who has always sought leisure and pleasure and maybe it’s just not worth it to him anymore.

That’s just Trumps modus operandi and its how some deal-cutting New Yorker’s operate.

Right now the political heat has reached temperatures I think he’s no longer willing to tolerate.

At the same time, the GOP Establishment is worried, very worried. Arizona is likely to lose its other US Senate seat – the first time in decades Arizona may have two Democrats in the US Senate. Other Republican Senators across the country are panicking.

The “Trump Effect” we warned about flipped the House in 2018 and is about to flip many seats in the Senate. Arizona is on the verge of turning blue. We warned you.

So how do we get an African-American woman as our next President? Indulge me.

Knowing the election is going down, Trump and the Republican Establishment gather and conclude there’s only one way to possibly save the presidency – elevate Mike Pence through the resignation of Donald J. Trump. It’s all done quickly before most states issue early ballots – mid- September – leading to a real “October Surprise.”

Prior to the Trump exit, Biden picks his VP. He’s already announced it will be a woman of color and one of the names floated has been former Obama advisor and Ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice. It works for Biden because he already knows her well, she brings foreign policy experience to the ticket, can protect her former boss from Republican investigations and frankly, delivers on a promise.

Republicans in a free fall with Mike Pence at the top of the ticket, counter with a strategic move. They call up former Secretary of State and National Security Advisor, Condoleezza Rice. It’s one final push to hold the election and make a statement about the Republican party’s diversity.

Biden has Susan Rice, Pence has Condoleezza Rice. Coincidence?

On to Election Day and the answer of whether the first African-American woman President will be a Republican or Democrat. I don’t know.

In the first scenario, Mike Pence holds the presidency, barely. Americans were tired of all the Trump drama but were also willing to forgive Pence for his guilt by association.

Unfortunately, the US Congress doesn’t hold the same sentiment.

The Senate, now flipped, has the numbers to convict a sitting Republican President. The US House, even more democratic, impeaches Pence on the impeachable offense du jour. The vote heads to the Senate and this time, Democrats are successful in convicting the nicest man to ever become President. Vice President Condoleezza Rice becomes the first Republican African-American woman President.

The second scenario unfolds with the election of Joe Biden as the 46th President of the United States. There’s only one problem and everyone knows it. Joe Biden’s mental capacity is waning. Republican leadership in the House and Senate calls for the removal or resignation of the President. Welcome to the 2020’s where impeachment is now weaponized. The hesitation by the American people in electing Biden in the first place becomes a reality and the calls for resignation grow louder. Democrats quietly push for his exit to save the party embarrassment but mainly to elevate the first woman of color into the White House. Susan Rice becomes the first Democrat African-American woman President

The beautiful irony in all this is that the two old white guys – who many were asking, “is this the best we have?” – have now been displaced and replaced by individuals who reflect the times and turmoils of where the country appears to be headed.

Too far fetched or is political truth stranger than fiction these days?

Michael Lafferty Political Contributions Question Candidacy

 

Michael Lafferty

Michael Lafferty

Friday, a new candidate announced his entry into the Phoenix mayoral race drawing questions about his political motivations among the politically astute.

Michael Lafferty, a Phoenix businessman and developer, entered the race asserting his affiliation as an independent candidate although he is currently registered as a Republican according to Maricopa County voter records.

The Arizona Republic noted that Lafferty’s company owns a 1,500 unit apartment complex near 12th Street and the light rail station. The Republic also stated that Lafferty has been involved in Phoenix business for 34 years.

In his statement, Lafferty said, “I don’t believe that the mayor’s office is a Democratic or Republican office.”

Sonoran Alliance researched his political contributions specifically related to Phoenix candidates and what we found draws into question his motive for seeking the top seat at the City of Phoenix.

As a Republican, Lafferty gave to Democrat candidates and to 2015’s Proposition 104 – a massive tax hike of $31.5 Billion on Phoenix voters over the next 27 years. According to the City of Phoenix Clerk’s office Lafferty gave the following donations:

  • $1,000 on June 30, 2017 to Kate Gallego in her city council race
  • $2,000 on June 23, 2015 to MovePHX in Support of Prop 104
  • $700 on May 8, 2014 to Greg Stanton in his mayoral race
  • $250 on March 9, 2014 to kate Gallego in her city council race
  • $500 on November 12, 2013 to Greg Stanton in his mayoral race
  • $225 on September 3, 2013 to Kate Gallego in her city council race
  • $450 on August 7, 2013 to Warren Stewart in his city council race

Michael Lafferty Phoenix Donations

At no time over the last few years has Lafferty contributed to the campaigns of Republicans Sal DiCiccio, Jim Waring, Bill Gates (when he was on council) or Thelda Williams.

This blog has to ask the question why would a candidate who acknowledges his political registration as Republican and transitioning to Independent, jump into the mayoral race when he has a history of supporting Phoenix Democrats? Why not run as a Democrat? And, as a Republican, why didn’t Lafferty support any of the Republican candidates running for city council?

Political speculators are already arguing that Lafferty is strategically running to eliminate the only Republican, Moses Sanchez, from winning the seat or a slot in a primary runoff contest. In our opinion, Michael Lafferty should re-register as a Democrat.

We’d like to hear your take on this important race for Phoenix Mayor.

Frosty’s Snowflakes

By Calamity June

We’ve noticed that over the last few days, Frosty’s Fake News has led with a “warning” to the rejects and sore losers who are pushing a recall against AZ GOP Chairman Jonathan Lines. A typical post reads as follows:

“Any State Committeemen Being Harassed for signing a Remove AZGOP Jonathan Lines “call” petition should notified (SIC) petition spokesman Marianne Ferrari…Harassment is a Class I misdemeanor…”

Even for the typical spittle-flecked drivel of Frosty’s Fake News, this is incredibly rich. Having engaged in a near non-stop campaign of lies, smears and bullying against Chairman Lines and his team, Frosty’s Snowflakes apparently can’t handle even a modicum of scrutiny that comes with their ill-fated effort to remove AZ GOP leadership in the middle of a crucial election cycle.

SnowflakeThese snowflakes have sent the better part of the year crying about bylaws violations that don’t exist, licking their wounds over a free and fair election that they lost, and fabricating wrongdoing for the sole purpose of grabbing power. Like the liberal snowflakes who still haven’t come to grips with President Trump’s victory, Frosty’s Snowflakes similarly are unable to grasp the fact that they were rejected by the state committee in January.

So instead of working to Make America Great Again and fight for President Trump’s agenda, they throw tantrum after tantrum while attacking grassroots Republicans and attempting to shut down discussion from anyone who disagrees with them, in the best traditions of left-wing college students in need of a “safe space.”

These are snowflakes like Bruce Piepho, who compares the AZ GOP to the rise of Adolf Hitler in Nazi Germany; like sore loser Jim O’Connor, who claims on one side of his mouth that he is uninvolved with a recall effort, then travels up to Show Low to advocate for it; like Lori Hack, who as a Never Trump Republican was removed from the RNC convention floor after refusing to support our Republican nominee. (You can find a full list of the Recall Roster here, snowflakes all.)

While real Republicans in Arizona continue to work to register voters, turn out Republicans for municipal races and lay the groundwork for a successful 2018, Frosty and her snowflakes continue in their effort to tear down the party…and then cry crocodile tears when anyone dares to criticize their destructive behavior and calls out their lies.

They represent the height of hypocrisy and the definition of Alinksy-style tactics. And once again, they will be rejected by Republicans who want to win in 2018.

Unhinged: Recall Rejects Invoke Adolf Hitler, Bizarre Conspiracy Theories

By Rangel Solamente

This week, yet another leader of the misguided and meritless “recall movement” circulated an e-mail which made the ludicrous connection between the AZ GOP and…Adolf Hitler’s rise to power. Here’s the relevant text:

There is non-threatening enabling acts for Arizona – One for creating a state and another for the Land Department, see attached.  Fortunately none such as in Germany of 1933.

The German word for an enabling act is Ermächtigungsgesetz. It usually refers to the Enabling Act of 23 March 1933, which became a cornerstone of Adolf Hitler’s seizure of power.

This is embarassing and disgusting on it’s face. Adolf Hitler oversaw the extermination of 6 million Jews, millions of others deemed “impure,” and represents a unique and disgusting sort of evil that we all must vigilently protect against.

And yet, Bruce Piepho, a regular contributor to Frosty’s Fake News, whose unhinged and incomprehensible rants have lately become a staple of her daily screed, has somehow found a connection between Adolf Hitler’s rise to power in 1933, and the work being done at the AZ GOP by Chairman Lines and his team.

Piepho concludes his rant with a question: What do you want your AZGOP to be? Well, Bruce, if the choice is between Chairman Lines and a man making Hitler references…you probably won’t like the answer.

Piepho’s e-mail also includes the bizarre conspiracy theories of Steven Slaton, the chairman of Navajo County and another keyboard commando quoted often in Frosty’s Fake News. Slaton claims that the AZ GOP staff was hired not by Chairman Lines…but by a mysterious group of donors known as “The Council.”

Slaton’s blatherings bring to mind another conspiracy-minded character. We couldn’t think of anyone in real life, but let’s take a look at the “Father” character portrayed in “So I Married an Axe Murderer,” and his deep concern with the mysterious “Pentaverate.”

The truth is, the Council is no more real than the Pentaverate. Sadly, Mr. Slaton, and his friend Mr. Piepho, live in a world of black helicopters, chem trails, and secret societies that spend their time, apparently, making staffing decisions at the AZGOP.

It truly is stranger than fiction.

More Fake News: Frosty Taylor promotes whacky conspiracy theory about party finances, gets smacked down by party treasurer

By Calamity June

Earlier this week, Frosty Taylor published yet another conspiracy-laden post about Arizona Republican Party Finances. Using the same lies and innuendo, she suggested that the party was attempting to sideline duly elected treasurer Bob Lettieri and prevent him from doing his job.

Foil HatIn fact, she made this assertion without even ATTEMPTING to reach out to Treasurer Lettieri…to find out if her story was true.

And what prompted this baseless and vile accusation? The fact that Chairman Jonathan Lines, in consultation with the treasurer himself, has brought on a new team to ensure 100% compliance at the state party.

Oh, the horror!

To his credit, Mr. Lettieri, who actually ran against the Lines slate at the January State meeting, immediately responded to Frosty’s post, setting the record straight:

Red Curve is not replacing me as Treasurer for I am irreplaceable. Joking aside, the focus of the time I spend at the AZGOP office is to review information not to perform accounting functions. The more accurate and reliable the information I work with makes the reporting I am responsible for more timely and reliable. It is critical that the required FEC and State reporting be timely and accurate to prevent penalties for late and inaccurate filing.  While in the process of reviewing the accounting information I have made recommendations that improvements were needed for me to have more reliance in the information I needed from accounting. Thus, changes, have been made that will result in improvements to both the quality of accounting information and meeting required filing deadlines. Red Curve was hired with my concurrence as Treasurer base on careful consideration with Chairman Lines and Matthew Kenny. 

Lettieri concludes:

Please contact me with your concerns or if you need additional information about RedCurve. I believe that the AZGOP is making great strides to demonstrate transparency and these posts are counterproductive to our efforts to bring unanimity to the Party.

But of course, Frosty won’t do this. Why? Because she is dishonest. She’s not a journalist or a reporter. She’s a rabble-rousing hater. Her aim is to lie, to tear down, to berate, and to destroy the institutions of the party. Instead of clearing up any confusion with a simple phone call, she attempted to create controversy and confusion.

Nice try, Frosty. Despite your best efforts, you’ve once again been called out for your lies. Despite running on opposite slates, Chairman Lines and Treasurer Lettieri are working together to further the goals of the party and win elections.

And not even your fake news site can take that fact away.
