After some fuss, Russ earned the congressman's nod, but Pearce was lying from the get-go, per usual...

Disgraced, recalled and increasingly desperate ex-state Senate President Russell Pearce owes me, big time.

Sure, I've exposed him on innumerable occasions as an unrepentant bigot and a corrupt, bald-faced liar. Still, I inadvertently did him a solid the other day, when I revealed that he was falsely claiming to have the endorsement of his fellow Republican, Congressman David Schweikert.

On Monday, Schweikert's campaign spokesman Chris Baker informed me that Schweikert had not endorsed Pearce for state Senate in Legislative District 25, and that Pearce had not bothered to ask for the endorsement.

Nevertheless, Pearce had a statement on his Facebook page dated June 2, announcing Schweikert's endorsement.

Hmm...Sweikert on the same website as Babeau, Pearce camp got a hold of the pics, bragged about the endorsement knowing Sweikert would succumb? Makes one wonder what went on behind the scenes. SOMETHING did!!

I have posted everywhere that Schweikert is way worse than Quayle. NOW will people please believe  me? I think even Chris Baker is surprised.

I am so glad Schweikert will no longer be representing my district come January.

Makes me wonder whether Pearce has something on Schweikert.

I am so disappointed in Schweikert.  Well, saying goes that you're know by the company you keep.  I wonder what Schweikert made on the deal.  I would be almost convinced his endorsement was paid for somehow.

It's official.  Schweikert is now more of a slimy nutjob than Quayle.  I didn't think that was even possible!

Well, crap.  I'm voting in the Republican primary again this year to try to head off some of the crazier candidates and keep them from making it to the general election.  I HAD thought I'd have to vote for Schweikert to keep Quayle from getting it, but after this I just don't know WHAT to do.

 

How does one choose from two equally abhorrent candidates?

@Quinn777 I was thinking the same thing. Another Babeau situation?

 @TaxpayingVoter If there was ever a need for a "none of the above" choice on a ballot, this is it!
