Horne: Smilin' all the way to victory

Just to keep you updated, as of 5:54 p.m. Monday, state Schools Superintendent Tom Horne had a comfortable 887 vote lead over ex-Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas in the GOP primary for state Attorney General.

According to spokesman Matt Benson at the Arizona Secretary of State's Office, there are only 900 provisional ballots left to count. The ballots are split between Gila and Apache counties.

I called Horne, who declared victory Saturday night. He said he hasn't heard murmur one from Thomas' camp.

Counties have until the end of the day tomorrow to finish with their provisionals.

There may be some minor shifts. About an hour ago, Horne was at 892, for example.

Even if Thomas were to snag half of all the remaining ballots, he still wouldn't bring it to within the 200 needed to trigger a recount.

So as Horne said Saturday, it's over. It's over like last Thanksgiving. It's over like Thomas' political career. It's over like the hill Sheriff Joe's on the other side of. It is so over.

Thomas hasn't even STARTED getting what he deserves yet. I CANNOT WAIT until the State Bar files formal Probable Cause actions against him and against Lisa Aubuchon. I can't WAIT until more claimants come forward claiming damages because of him. Now he's a NOBODY with a best buddy like Lotstein follwoing him around. You KNOW that isn't going to be good news for him. He's up the creek without a paddle now. Soon he'll be paying for his OWN defense. Can't wait to see him mortgaging his home and spending down HIS assets to defend himself.

Anything that snips the threads of Our Fair Sheriff's power is A Good Thing. What will he do when he loses his stooges and tools left and right? Get desperate and even more stupid.

Thomas is nothing more than a slimebag weasel, and like JD, isn't man enough to call and concede..Good riddance to both. Maybe they will leave AZ and change their names to avoid further embarrassment. Maybe an island with the nutjobs from "The Hills".
