More Evidence Joanie Flatt Consorted with Carolyn Allen

Here’s the text of an email that went out from Arizona Republic columnist/blogger Joanie Flatt that proves there was some dirty electioneering going on against Clean Elections candidate Colette Rosati.

This also goes to prove that the RAPAW’s (Rich Anglo Pro-Abortion Women) will do whatever it takes to protect their “sacred rite” to abortion against a solid pro-life candidate.

When the Arizona Legislature overwhelmingly approved $69,000 to help build a memorial to the victims of Pearl Harbor (and those who were killed on the USS Arizona), only 6 out of the 90 legislators voted “no.”  One of those “no” votes was Rep. Colette Rosati of District 8. Her explanation to a local newspaper was, “While I value the people that died and I love memorials, I feel this is something we should have a bake sale or something for.”

[Haven’t we already created several monuments to the U.S.S. Arizona? If I recall, there is one on Wesley Bolin Plaza – right across from the State House and Senate. Why do we need to spend more tax dollars on another memorial??? – my interjection]

Now this woman wants to unseat Senator Carolyn Allen, one of our state’s greatest champions for the arts, children, business, tourism and health issues. We can’t let that happen.

If you live in District 8, as I do, I urge Republicans to vote for Carolyn in the primary.  I urge Independents to request a Republican primary ballot (due to overwhelming Republican registration in District 8, the next Arizona senator from this district will be chosen in the Republican primary). I urge Democrats to re-register as Independents so you can vote a Republican primary ballot for Carolyn.  The deadline for doing that is August 14th. You can always go back to being a Democrat the next day!

Whether you live in District 8 or not, Senator Carolyn Allen deserves your support. You can help send Carolyn back to the Senate by joining me and my fellow co-hosts at a fundraiser for Carolyn on August 23 at my home. The attached invitation has all the details. If you can’t join us on the 23rd, please consider sending Carolyn a check.  We know from previous races involving Rep. Rosati that this race will not be easy and it’s likely to get ugly before it’s over.  Carolyn is going to need a lot of money and lots of friends to prevail. Thank you.

  1. Hey Joanie, how is being the #1 supporter of killing babies make you “a champion for children?” And “business” and “health” is no doubt RAPAW-speak for abortion clinics.

    I bet there’s another memorial the WISH Listers and RAPAWS dig — Janet’s 9/11 Memorial.

    Hopefully ALL of them will take Flatt’s advice and turn back into Democrats tomorrow. Poof!

  2. Randall Holdridge says

    I believe that the U.S.S. Arizona Memorial in Pearl Harbor, which of course is also the grave marker for the Arizona sailors and marines, is the monument intended in this bill.

    Nearly sixty years exposed to salt water and wave action have left the Arizona Memorial in need of serious repair.

    She was one of the great battleships of the first half of the 20th-century, and she went down guns ablaze with terrible loss of life.

    I suppose that people of good will can disagree, but I think that renovation of the Memorial is a worthy cause.

  3. Shane – Was this the monument that Colette wanted to hold a bake sale to raise funds?

    I read Joanie’s Email and fail to see how it “proves there was some dirty electioneering”

    Carolyn Allen ran as a traditional candidate. She did not take “state funding for her campaign” What was so wrong for a group of ladies to hold a fundraiser? The Email was mailed from Joanie’s aol account not her AZ Republic email address.

    Explain the dirty electioneering here. Please. And I’m currious how you got the email in the first place. I’m supprised you would be on Joanie’s invite lsit.

    I will agree the District 8 race was dirty….but both ladies had mud on their hands. Colette was clearly no angel. Never has been. And as resident and voter in her district I’m glad to see her sitting on the sidelines. She might have made a fine representative in Mesa or Gilbert….but Scottsdale. I don’t think so.

    That’s too funny!!!

    I got one, RAPAW – b/c they would rather get their nails done then take their grandchild to school!!!

  5. Randall Holdridge says

    Of course, people of good will may be in short supply.

  6. Mike Triggs,

    Dirty electioneering came into play when Joanie Flatt asked Independents to request a Republican ballot and when Democrats were asked to re-register as Independents in order to vote in the Republican Primary. While this is not illegal, it does demonstrate that Carolyn Allen and her minions thought they did not have enough Republican votes to win. It also demonstrates a serious lack of principle and character which should ultimately speak for Carolyn Allen and Joanie Flatt’s credibility.

    Another indicator of Carolyn Allen’s dirty electioneering was the way she misrepresented endorsements by two prominent conservative legislators. This was another sign she felt threatened by Rosati.

    I didn’t mention the incident of the Rosati signs being stuffed in toilet bowls along the side of the road because there was no way to prove that it was Carolyn Allen or her supporters. That was more a sign of Rosati haters than anything else.

    Colette Rosati played by the rules in this last election. She focused on Allen’s extremely poor voting record and thus properly and appropriately defined it as being liberal.

    Unfortunately, the voters (not necessarily Republicans) decided they still want someone who will jack up their property, income, sales and business taxes and then take the money and spend it like a Democrat.

    The irony in all this is that Carolyn Allen has lost all her big tax and spend liberal Republicans at the legislature with the exception of Tom O’Halleran.

    The final note on Carolyn Allen is that she will likely resign before the end of her term. This means that the precinct committeemen will have to nominate three individuals to replace her.

    Colette Rosati will likely be one of those names leaving the Maricopa Board of Supervisors to make the final decision…

  7. Another follow-up: I received the Joanie Flatts email in its original form from another voter who just so happens to be on Ms. Flatt’s email list.
