Russell Pearce's Olivia Cortes Problem: Video #2

Here is the long awaited second video from my colleague, Phoenix videographer Dennis Gilman, culled from the shenanigans that took place at a recent GOP Legislative District 19 meeting in Mesa. For an intro to the players and what's going on, read my initial blog on this meeting, here, and view Dennis' first video on the LD 19 ruckus, here.

I was happy to see Channel 12's Brahm Resnik follow the story and use some of the footage from Dennis' first video. And I was pleased that Channel 12 credited Dennis on the footage, albeit in mouseprint.

Dan Grimm, what a tool! I'd like to know if he and Oldroyd are members of the LDS Church. If so, what an embarrassment to he Church. Truth hurts doesn't it Dan and Pat. What a spineless Jellyfish, Dan. Pat Oldroyd is more of a man than Dan Grimm. Pathetic!

What's being exposed in the investigative video series shows why Arizona finds itself in the position it's in. A one-party state for decades = tyranny. They have only themselves (the GOP leadership/Pearce/arpaio/thomas/hendershott/ and their enablers) to blame. Let the better people come forward and turn this corrupt state around -- if that is even possible.

I love AZ Hollywood is remaking golden oldies from 25 yrs ago Now AZ politics is doing a remake. Sherman set the way back machine to the Evan Mecham Republican Mormon, Qualification for office car dealer.  Caryolin Warner, teacher  worked her way up through the ranks till she had been Superintendent of public schools (ever try and heard 10 yr olds) perfect training for dealing with the legislature. Gubernatorial election. Warner was doing very well in the polls Ev not so good, step in the Phoenix 40 Charles Keating and friends all of a sudden we get an independent running on the ticket named Schultz, who happened to lose his spot in the Republican Primary.Schultz lack luster campaign did surprisingly well even managed double digit at the poll splitting the results enough that the Used car dealer ended up in the Governors Office. Az was the butt of the nation whit Ev's witty inappropriate remarks and crashing the state functions into a wall to be come the only Governor in US history to be removed from office in almost a unanimous vote of the legislature for misfeasance of office, BTW there was a voter recall @ 3 weeks out from the action. Now we see the same thing a stalking horse put forward to save a nitwit that has single handedly presided in steering the state at another wall, His racist views and laws have cost the state as I understand about an 18 percent drop in gross economic output, as well as nearly killing conference and resort revenues. With similar impact on city county and state revenue input. Creating real death panels, as well as tossing many with life threatening illness off AHCCCS, it is not a crime to be poor and ILL it should never be a death sentance.JJBear

Does anyone know how to contact by email Univision or Telemundo? please share their email address someone needs to send these tv stations a letter they are the primary TV stations that should be covering this and exposing Olivia C. after all Hispanics are most likely the ones that would vote for her if they don't know who she is of course.

Pearce is digging a deeper hole for himself with this sham candidate, Cortes.

If anything, Cortes and Pearce both need to drop out of this race. Cortes hasn't even campaigned actively since announcing her intention to run, and Pearce is too mentally sick and corrupt to actually run an ethical campaign.

I still think Jerry Lewis should win automatically.

BTW, great photo of Pearce looking like Democratic President Grover Cleveland, though I think Cleveland might be offended...

This is really good reporting, and a true service to the community.  Nice job, lads, nice job indeed!

FYI, It appears that Sean Pearce has been commenting on a lot of Facebook things regarding Jerry Lewis's campaign.  I wonder if he is doing this on the MCSO clock and using MCSO computers for his election-focused comments.  He has since gone back and deleted all of his comments as I understand it.

Might be an interesting tact to explore.

Dan Grimm is a total spineless weasel.   You don't have to agree with me or anybody else, but if you want to call yourself a rule of law type person, you should have the minimal amount of backbone required to stand by your actions.  What a pussy!

This guy Dan Grimm should be seriously embarrassed. He solicited signatures and then signed the darn petition as being a signature gatherer. Then he relies on, "No comment", when asked about it. I think he lacks integrity and he has very low self esteem and cannot respect himself for who he is and what he does.

It appears he probably recognizes the sleazy nature of the Cortes candidacy and just doesn't want to admit he's a part of it, although he clearly is.

I think of one huge rotten apple in a bushel of apples.   The closer the other apples  are to the Biggie that's rotten to the core,  the faster they too rot.

Wow, that stupefyingly painful face of another Pearce dullard getting caught in the act of being sleazy.  Dan Grimm, you got PWNED!

Why can't Pearce's supporters do anything ethically?  (they don't know how...)

What a circus some of those hypocritical District 19 are.  Wayne Gardner does his best to run a civil discussion, and Dan Grimm is in the back freaking out and yelling.  Then Grimm tries to cover up his dirty, backhanded maneuvers.  At least Pat Oldroyd admitted it.

Yeah, he'll make his wife suck his dick extra hard tonight to make him feel like a man (notice I said "feel" - the guy is actually an unethical and immature little man ).

Pearce and his cronies have gotten away with it for too many years = systemic.
