Russell Pearce Fundraiser To Be Protested Friday

Pearce builds his own trough and goes hog-wild Friday

Anti-Russell Pearce activists are set to protest both a Friday, January 7 fundraiser for the state Senate President-elect, and the opening day of business for the Arizona Legislature on Monday, January 10, when Pearce will take his seat as the Dark Lord of Sand Land.

The Friday demonstration, which is reportedly being spearheaded by the Phoenix human rights' group Puente, will be near a private home in Paradise Valley, where a fundraiser to "honor" Pearce is being held. The new Facebook site "Pearce Watch" is heavily promoting the protest.

As I reported in December, there are more than 70 members of the "host committee" for the event, which reads like a who's who of lobbyists and special-interest group shills, everyone from Mark Spencer, president of the Phoenix Law Enforcement Association to Chuck Coughlin, simultaneously Governor Jan Brewer's Svengali and pimp for the private prisons giant Corrections Corporation of America.

Also on the host committee is Genevra Richardson, a lobbyist with the public affairs group Ziemba-Waid, a traditional supporter of Democratic politicians and causes. I hope someone snags a photo of her arriving to this obscene Pearce-party.

Coming just days before the legislative session begins, I think it's fair to call this fundraiser a "shakedown," one lobbyists will attend to stay in Pearce's good graces, no doubt. Suggested donation for the event is $250.

It's all perfectly legal, of course, but no less gross because of that fact. Pearce is the most powerful man in the Legislature, and those kowtowing to him are also kowtowing to his nativist agenda.

Unfortunately, I won't be able to attend due to a prior commitment, so I'm hoping folks such as videographer Dennis Gilman document Puente's action against this wing-nut wingding. The protest is scheduled from 4p.m. to 7 p.m., according to Pearce Watch. The address is listed on the flier above. I'm assuming the demonstrators will be across the street.

Click, here, for more info on Facebook. And remember, keep it peaceful, people.

The Monday event is being organized by former U.S. Senate hopeful and pro-immigrant firebrand Randy Parraz and the group Citizens for a Better Arizona. Its theme is, "Hold Russell Pearce Accountable," and it's scheduled to take place from Noon to 1 p.m. at the state Capitol near the state Senate lawn.

You can get all the details on the CBA event at the Three Sonorans blog. I'm hoping to be on hand for this one. So see ya there.

Really? If you're so important why hide behind the anonymity of "Guest" and try to trash some of the folks here? As far as I a know you're my wife's ex-husband who refuses to pay child support.... just another blood sucker on two feet...

I wanted to take the time to personally thank you for your wonderful donation. I want you to know this donation will go to new Hoods and White Robes for all of us in our KKKlan. If there's any left over, we plan on buying crosses with whats left.

Be sure to stop by and get yours !

Thank you once again and keep an eye out for those crosses burning in the Mexicans yards.

Lights and money train certainly lighting up for the National socialist party of Arizona, lead by Mein Fuhrer, Pearce. Absolute arrogance, grubbing for money as the session starts. What's it for Mein fuhrer?

Arizona Gastapo Speaks! So what if Camp Pearce at the Gateway is still on hold. So what if we took $20,000,000 Million Obama Stimulas bucks and put it at our CCA Prisons for Profit Human Economic Opportunity at the Southern Border. GOP Arizona Health Care is " NO CARE." So what if it caused "death panels." It was always about "civil rights" and "civil rights education." So what if we had illegal, State unconstitutional "special brown skin, brown eye while walking that ethnic way, talking that mexican-american ethnic way sessions. It was always about Section 1070 YOU LIE! YOU LIE! Hispanics, latinos, mexican american born alike attempting to go through the backdoor of my Joshua's cracked 9 day son's America. It was always about "The Description" SB1070 Video. So what if it was a bust at the Civil Rights Box Offices of America. We have did! We have did! Jan Brewer has did! So what if we are still broke, foreclosed provisional ballot voters at best. That's the West side! That's the South side! That's those people! We have did! Kavanaugh has did! Wink Wink, Nod Nod is the "State of the Arizona Union." Oh yea by the way MLK day is against the states Ethnic Studies Law. So No March for you. Just Section 1070 Arpaio Hotel, Motel, YOU LIE! 14th Amendment, hispanic, latinos, mexican american born alike Holiday Inn for YOU. Please elect me I Russell KKK Pearce and my $100,000,000 Human Economic Opportunity TEAM GOP Holocaust Staff of GOP Axis of Evil Doers. Speech Written.

Speaking of Mark 'Looney Toons' Spencer..?

It looks like 53% of his own Union disagree with how he does his job.. Not to mention, that 8% have already fled his Union and are in favor of FOP, due to his hateful rhetoric and pro-1070 stance..

Why don't you guys do a Feather Bastard series on local police officers who drive drunk and otherwise get arrested for the same crime violations they enforce on citizens? You could start with Ofc. J. Zycowics (sic) who was arrested for Extreme DUI by Scottsdale PD over the holidays. Why not put heat on the Chandler PD Chief to fire this mouthbreather and get a cop with integrity so us tax payers get our monies worth. This monkey in blue will be ridin the pine for at least a year until he can actually perform the duties of a police offficer again--not to mention what lousy decision process this tool has and he is enforcing laws on us....Something wrong here.

Charlie, just curious why you don't just call Chandler P.D. and ask for an appointment with the chief to see what is being done about the purported DUI? If it happened over the holidays what makes you think nothing is being done?

Will I be able to get the DUI off my driving record if I give the $250? Just what is the difference considering all the wh@#es tht will be there.

Tommy Collins

Frances, you're in luck. I have a contact who used to work for MVD and he knows how to delete DUI records. Send cash to me at 1274 East Inca Street, Mesa, AZ and it will all be taken care of. But the amount has gone up to $500. Apparently he needs it for his legal defense fund for one of the boys. You know how boys can be so damn rowdy at times... You have to keep it quiet, tho. It didn't go well for him the last time...

Josh Pearce will be there selling meth to interested parties. So bring some needles and enjoy the party. Nazi eagle tattoos half off if you donate to Daddy.

Holy Cow.. I already know of at least 3 immigrant rights and human rights planned protests scheduled for Monday at the state capitol for that time. How to choose which to attend? Well, at least they're at the same place at the same time.

It will take more time to read it, but if you just look at the pictures it' is a lot faster. Tell me, do you also move your lips while you look at them pitchers, or only when you're trying to read?

So which psych meds are you on, boychik? Haldol? Seroquel? Risperdal? Did your behavioral health care provider explain to you that mixing psych meds with meth and/or vapors can cause even more brain damage? You poor, poor thing...

Yeah, for an illiterate individual whose only interest is finding something to follow up on in the publication's ads, I guess that could be accomplished in 4 minutes. Well researched articles that expose political corruption in the state or reflect poorly on some Arizona politician, often several pages in length, will take a mite longer. Looks like Narof may have some vested political interest of his own in this $250 a head Pearce fundraiser to have written such a rash "kill the messenger" comment.

its pretty nuts to look at the word like its on some spectrum that you can pigeonhole and frame and use for your own psychotic devices. Left. Right.

Wow. so I imagine the only things on the vertical axis are up and down, right?

And the world is black and white, no?

Sad. It looks like all the other Democratic lobbyists successfully dodged this one; the only other name remotely connected to Dems is Rip Wilson who worked for Sen. Dennis DeConcini years ago. The other name that should be shocking is Jaime Molera, a moderate R who was defeated for Supt of Public Instruction in the 1998 Republican primary through a racist campaign by Tom Horne. Molera should be sick to his stomach for supporting Pearce.

FWIW, most Arizona lobbying firms are heavily Republican and may have one or two token Dems; that way the firms can cover both sides without embarrassing themselves like Genevra Richardson has done.
