Russell Pearce's Pal Constantin Querard's New Signs and Web Site

Actually, meeting Pearce often has the same effect as that bad slice of pizza from the night before

Butter wouldn't melt in Constantin Querard's mouth. Querard's one of the sleazy backers of state Senate President Russell Pearce, and as you all now know, he's suspected of being the "brains" behind the sham candidacy of recall queen-for-a-day Olivia Cortes. 

He also has a history in Arizona politics of shady deals and dirty pool. And it has been suggested, though not proven by any means, that he could have been behind those mysterious "Si, Se Puede" signs of Cortes'. The ones the City of Mesa has finally taken down, and which the Arizona Secretary of State's Office is finally probing.

Alas, Pearce and the Truth are not well acquainted...

It would be easy for him. He does have his own printing company, High Noon Campaign Products. Have called and e-mailed Querard about this, but he hasn't gotten back to me yet. That's OK. I know he's busy these days dodging TV cameras.

So why would anyone believe anything Querard puts up in support of his pal Russ? That's the question that comes to mind in relation to signs posted by Querard's independent expenditure committee Arizona Deserves the Best

The placards tout a Web site that's not up yet, MeetRussellPearce.com, registered under Querard's name.

Anyhoo, thanks to Robert McDonald for the pics of these signs he spotted while roaming around Mesa. McDonald deserves credit for first raising the issue of Cortes' candidacy and her "Si, Se Puede" placards with the Arizona Secretary of State's Office

Though the SOS initially declined to investigate, the office has recently changed course, as has been mentioned. Bully for Ken Bennett. He apparently has the stones that Arizona's Attorney General Tom Horne lacks.

Addendum: About the Web site ArizonaDeservestheBest.com, it's interesting to note those speaking on Pearce's behalf. These include two lobbyists, Sarah Raybon of Western Sky Consulting, and Gretchen Jacobs of Arizona Governmental Affairs. His sister Kathy Pearce. (Kathy's daughter Shilo Sessions circulated petitions for Cortes.) Lickspittle state House Representative Steve "Malinche" Montenegro. And Querard himself. 

Family members, lobbyists and toadies. Nice.

It might be a good tactic to call and make an appointment to speak with pearce. Hopefully if enough of antipearce people make appts than pearce will be kept from all those too stupid to see what a nightmare he is.

What a coincidence, there's a MeetRussellPearce.com sign on the fence of Rhodes Junior High at Baseline and Longmore -- where an Olivia Cortes "Si, se puede" sign used to be. Problem is, this is the heart of LD21. Wrong district, but thanks for solidifying the connection for us.

They actually praise Pearce's employment with the DMV as wonderful.  They have no integrity.

Querard is as big a sleaze as the Flaccid Fool of MCSO, Candy Andy, and of course Pearce himself.

I don't need to meet Pearce nor do I have the intention to. He is too mentally sick and corrupt to keep up with me, as I am an educated and U.S. Army disciplined individual.

Good for Bennett for actually developing a spine and investigating Cortes and her sham campaign. Seems to me that voters actually made a good decision electing him.

Where's Monty on his "investigation" into Pearce and the Fiesta Bowl? I wonder if Monty is supporting Pearce? We already know that useless oaf of an AG, Tom Horne is.

BTW, mbsanchez, did I type this comment too fast for you? Here, I'll type it a little more slowly so that you and your hero Pearce can read it.

Is this law Racist? Does it specify brown people?Are the people who agree with this law racist?Are those who want this law enforced racist?The law says nothing of little "brown" people but it explains what is illegal entry. It's not very hard to understand. Why is this law "broken"? Why can it be selectively ignored?Illegal alien includes all people who entered illegally, could be Croation, Russian, Chinese, Irish, Canadians and yes even Mexicans. No one single race or people is referenced in the law. Under Title 8 Section 1325 of the U.S. Code, "Improper Entry by Alien," any citizen of any country other than the United States who:Enters or attempts to enter the United States at any time or place other than as designated by immigration officers; or Eludes examination or inspection by immigration officers; or Attempts to enter or obtains entry to the United States by a willfully false or misleading representation or the willful concealment of a material fact; has committed a federal crime.Violations are punishable by criminal fines and imprisonment for up to six months. Repeat offenses can bring up to two years in prison. Additional civil fines may be imposed at the discretion of immigration judges, but civil fines do not negate the criminal sanctions or nature of the offense.These people cost Pheonix and surrounding cities hundreds of millions to support the education, health and welfare of these illegal immigrants.

These signs show they just don't get it.  We don't need or want to learn any more about Pearce.  We've had enough of him. 

Watching Pat Oldroyd read her resolution of GOP LD19's support for Pearce and then turn right around and snottily tell Wayne Gardner that yes she did gather signatures for Cortes takes the cake!

It's on YouTube, check it out.  You can google Russell Pearce news and find the video link that way too.

Pearce is dirty...but damned, the people supporting him are even dirtier!  That's THE TRUTH  that's being revealed in all this.

I've met Russell Pearce 4 times in person and believe me I have enough "truth" for a life-time.  Please....no more "truth".  In fact, sitting through his version of "truth" last Tuesday truly made me sick.  Not my idea of a fun time.

So now that Bennet finally got SHAMED into looking into this stuff, I expect Joker Arapio and Montypoodle to go after Querard, as they BOTH claim to go after ALL criminals!

Byt then Querard will probably stop collecting money for Arapio's enforcements, and Montypoodle will turn states evidence! (he is really a wimp after all!)

Proof that Russell Pearce believes in employing aliens.  His internet site was registered through a company in India.

Horne is totally willing to bow down to anybody that will help him navigate and upward trajectory.  Montgomery should force some of these issues and clean up some of the messes we have.  Of course Horne won't unless it suits him politically.

Laws are ignored or prioritized all the time by law enforcement officials. Politics, news items, public outcry, crime statistics all can be variables that affect which laws have priority.

Another thing is that though, sb1070, which I am figuring is the law you are speaking of, which I don't know how or why you have brought up the subject here since it is not what is being debated in this particular round of comments but the law which does not specify "brown people" the end result is this is who will be most effected. Another reality is that law enforcement easily can slip into racial profiling to enfore this law and so that must be addressed and parameters put in place so racial profiling does not take place.

You are a perfect example of why education should be a top priority in Arizona.

Lemons has it right most of the time and rapidly admits when he gets something wrong along with follow-up to get it right. I find that he seeks truth.

If you think he has it wrong and can actually articulate why, I would encourage you to let him know. If you can't say why, then you are blowing smoke.

Blow it out your ass. Nobody on this blog gives a flying shit about your opinion. Pearce & his cronies are done,FINISHED so get over it .Do you understand this My  Bitch Sanchez. Lemmons sets the example of what a "journalist" should be.I remember RuSSell Pearce calling the PNT "The great fiction that it is", not so ficticious now is it Nazi Hugger RuSS ?

You make a very good point. Although not a member of the Mormon church I do understand that each religious organization has an 'inner circle of power'. It's become very obvious to me, as an outside observer, that pearce is in total conflict with the published philosophy of the Mormon church with regard to immigration issues. Even if a formal admonishment is never posted against pearce and his politics, there is a underground flow of dissatisfaction within the church circles and it's power brokers. pearce, having observed this during his life as a Mormon, is VERY well aware of this and knows that he has lost most of the Mormon vote he might have once had. Which, of course, is why he shilled Olivia to try to take votes away from Mr. Lewis, who is the candidate of choice for the LD-18 Mormon church group. In fact, I expect Olivia will actually vote for Mr. Lewis, as well.

Jerry Lewis for LD-18.

The SMART choice.

Brahm Resnik's weekend show quoted an independent poll, completed before the Thursday court hearing, showing both Lewis and Pearce at about 35% and Cortes at a sickening 8%.  I think one thing this reflects is a split in the Mormon Church -- much like there are splits in the Catholic cult.  With Mormons, the problem is a lack of command and control.  There is no central education system for congregation leaders, and management from SLC is weak.  So you get enclaves like Mesa, where after several generations, Mormons are unlike their "brothers" in California (whence came Lewis).

Please don't think for a second that this clown has any "clout and power" in the Mormon Church.  Pearce has never held a position of authority in the Church, which has a lay clergy drawn from the membership.  The Chairman of the Recall Committee is LDS, as is his principal challenger, Jerry Lewis.  9 out of the 10 LDS Stake Presidents in the District have endorsed Lewis, the only abstention being Pearce's own Stake President.  Pearce is a MINO (Mormon in Name Only).

Well I live in LD18, am a midwest transplant, I am not Mormon and in my 10 yearshere, I have never voted for Pearce.  I know a bully when I see one, we are not Allstupid.   Although I do feel a little stupid for buying a house in Mesa in the firstplace.
