Russell Pearce's Ban Amnesty Now Announces Boycott of New Times

Pearce, president of a "social welfare organization" that's hostile to free-market champions such as New Times

It's pretty easy for a scribbler in this town to know when you've drawn blood from local hypocrites: Those skewered squeal like hogs being boiled alive in Karo syrup.

Recalled ex-state Senate President Russell Pearce is no exception, despite his tough-guy pose. Make that double for his mini-me enabler Sean McCaffrey, one-time executive director of the Arizona Republican Party. 

Seems this Mexican-bashin' duo is so peeved at my recent journalistic endeavors that on Monday they announced a campaign to boycott New Times' advertisers.

McCaffrey is the founder of Ban Amnesty Now, which has a one-hour radio show it pays for on KFNX 1100 AM. Recently, McCaffrey turned the radio show over to Pearce, who now serves as BAN's president. 

McCaffrey told me in January that Pearce would have to relinquish both the BAN presidency and the AM hour once Pearce announced his campaign for state Senator of the newly formed Legislative District 25. This, because BAN is a 501(c)4 non-profit, which is not supposed to spend the majority of its time sponsoring candidates for public office.

But Pearce being Pearce, he's staying on as head of BAN and will still host the radio show,  rules be damned. 

I recently blogged about the legal and ethical issues involved in allowing Pearce to do this. And in an odd acknowledgement of that blog entry, Pearce announced at the start of Monday's show that he could not campaign on air and preferred not to take calls about his lame comeback attempt.

Nevertheless, one caller commented on the flap, supporting Pearce's use of the BAN show as a "platform" for his run for office. That call is a perfect example of why Pearce, in his current role, will not be able to maintain a wall between his candidacy and McCaffrey's 501(c)4.

Later in the show, McCaffrey lambasted New Times as being, among other things, "anti-law enforcement, anti-jobs, pro-amnesty, pro-illegal immigration, anti-Sheriff Arpaio, anti-you," the "you" being Pearce, natch.

those two mother fuckers, who never had mothers to raise then should learn to shut the fuck up.  Pierce is an idiot, and only a idiot would vvote for this trash. McCaffery should crawl in a hole and die. He a useless piece of shit that has no morals.   Imagine these two queers have breeded kids. I wonder how their shitty offspring will do as adults. Probally no different than there old stinky, fat ass parents. may they burn in hell for enternity

"But Pearce being Pearce, he's staying on as head of BAN and will still host the radio show,  rules be damned. " True to form left, we'll pick which laws we want to support. Yeah border crashing welfare sucking mexican hillbillies that start their first experience in the United States illegally, and continue that with consistant violations of our laws, while spewing their spawn and raising them to hate Americans, that's okay. GTF out and take them with you!

 You are a prime example of why I say keep the illegals and deport the conservatives. The illegals are a better class of human beings.

Born in the fifties, lived through the civil rights movement, watched LBJ sign, watched birth control for women become accepted. And now these pieces of toilet shit, who are in the minority of this country have decided it is their absolute right to take us all back to the dark ages. People like Lesko and Pierce just based on their words, actions and the states rights challenges that these ugly hate filled people continually propose, ought to be tried for treason. Watching Pierce or Lesko frog marched in cuffs to explain their continuing deviant interest in private citizens lives would do quite a bit to shut the rest of this treasonous minority the fuck up.

If New Times was a free spending publication, you guys would spend some cash to air brush pictures of Pearce so it is more palatable to view them.

And you actually thought that this turd Pearce would ride of into the sunset after he was recalled?

mirele

Of course not. He doesn't seem to be successful in getting a private sector job, so he wants to get back into office, so he can parlay his legislative seat into fame and money (not necessarily in that order). 

Seriously, though, it would be a really boring election season without Russell Pearce to laugh at, no?

Wil Cardon is a little fat ass Russell Pearce mini-me trying to run for office on his daddy's illegal money. Watch his "campaign trail", he's at one nursing home after another with residents sleeping in their wheel chairs. Cardon calls them "successful rallies". I guess he means none of the residents died of boredom.

Russell earce is a bigot. Russell earce is a mormon. It's up to the mormon community as to whether they want to complete the last sentence....All mormons are ______. They can answer this in next election earce is running in.

Now you wonder what happened to the P? It's running down Rusty Zipper's leg....LOL

That's just stupid. Pearce's idiocy has little to do with his religion and everything to do with his longstanding tendencies towards avarice, corruption and venality--something that can afflict people of every religion and no religion at all when they decide to make money off the people instead of serving the people.

Mirele,  You are absolutely spot on when you suggest they "decide to make money off the  people instead of serving the people"  Truth is they are all prostitutes in politics so I guess from a free enterprise standpoint, they must just feel like they ought to get paid for their servicing...I mean service...Too bad that good people are too afraid to run for public office out of fear of the machine.

This place could be absolute heaven on earth if it we run right. We would all benefit so magnificently...can you imagine? But here we have a group of maggots in office that are ruining the place for everyone. No body wants any of these fucking maggots in office.

No it is not stupid. Until the mid 1980's you had to be white to be a mormon. The book of mormon was changed then........It's not stupid it's the truth. You are ignorant. Read about mormons and LEARN.

Russell should be in a pound-me-in-the-ass prison right now for all the sleazy crap he has pulled over the years.  Just keep doing that show Russ, you will get busted....

What about that Fiesta Bowl stuff he received over the years? Has he made restitution for that? ROTFL-- yeah right. Please, though, someone tell me if he has, because if he hasn't I'll make a point of going to citizens forums or whatever Pearce has dreamed up and asking him about it.

P.S. Russell, I have lots of experience being a pit bull clamped to the pant leg of a space-alien cult. You're running in my district now, you now have to answer this voter's questions.

Russell Pearce is absolutely NOT going to be responding to any of the gay adult services ads in the back of the Phoenix New Times from this point forward.  So take that PNT.

 He probably won't Marcy.  He is too cheap.  But he does have the Blow Up Man doll that he calls Plan B and keeps in the Closet.

lol how about we get 250 people to sign a petition demanding arpaio look into the legality of Pearce using a non profit for campaign use? Why do i get the feeling we would be ignored though lol

I dunno...I'm kinda partial to filing the IRS complaint, myself. The IRS has to take the complaints, and it can't reveal who filed it. On the other hand, the IRS also can't say if an investigation is underway and the wheels of the IRS grind verrrrry slooooowly.

After taking a quick peek at NT's advertisers I don't think they need to worry one bit.  I doubt most t-partiers venture much from their homes let alone spend much at restaurants, bars, and entertainment venues.  Good luck with that boycott Russell....(Not)!
