Monday, I watched a ballot box get stuffed. Legally.

I was over at the Third Avenue and Roosevelt Street office of the Maricopa County Recorder, hangin' with about ten canvassers for Moving Mesa Forward, the independent expenditure group funded by Citizens for a Better Arizona, which in 2011 made the recall of ex-state Senate President Russell Pearce a reality.

CBA co-founder Randy Parraz, along with some folks who worked on the recall last year and a few new faces, were dropping off election gold: about 200 early voter ballots recently gathered by Parraz's anti-Pearce soldiers.

"Most of these are what we call `garbage ballots,'" Parraz informed me. "That means they were just sitting in someone's house, ready to be tossed in the garbage."

Maybe a ballot's owner had forgotten about his or her ballot, or was not intending to vote. Working off a list of such persons, a volunteer or a paid canvasser makes an appearance at a voter's door, encouraging the individual to fill out the ballot, and offering to deliver it to county elections.

Many people do just that. Often they've been signed up by Parraz's group to the county's Permanent Early Voter List, or PEVL. Maybe they got a call from someone at Mesa headquarters for MMF, asking them if they'd mailed their ballot or wanted someone to pick it up.

CBA played a HUGE part in the demise of Mister Pearce. However, the own worst of Mister Pearce was indeed, Mister Pearce himself. Even though he played stone silent for the final weeks leading to his slaughter at the polls yesterday, his mouth on many issues proved that he is indeed the fool so many of us think him to be.

 

Alas, Mister Pearce isn't bright enough to figure that one out and no one close to him wants him to know.

Pearce loving fart lickers listen here. Your redneck boyfriend is on his way out. He and his kind are not wanted. Next on the list are your cocksucking Arpaio and sphincter face Brewer.

Don't discount ordinary republicans who simply got tired of Pearce's bullshit. Pearce was ousted by his own kind, not democrat maneuvering.

Rusty Pearce can't get a real job, he has no job skills.  He and most of his family were on the elected office government welfare gravy train and they really liked living large without having to work hard.

I wonder if Russ can find the grace to congratulate his conqueror this time, something he didn't do when he lost to Lewis.

Early results have Russ AND Les losing by generous margins.

 Investigated by whom, and for what? Seriously.... you've been following the old days of MCSO when they announced 'investigations' on all who dared oppose the old goat and his camp of winkles.

 @arizona2012 lol id like to see you prove it..because it isnt happening. Thats not Randy's style. And if you make an accusation like that, you should present facts to sustain your assertion..otherwise its slander.

 Pearce has no class.  He doesn't know the meaning of political etiquette.  It just shows the quality of his character...............
