Russell Pearce's Bro Lester Pearce Faces Ethics Charges
Note the date, friends...
I've rarely read a legal document so delightful.
The one I've just received from the Arizona Commission on Judicial Conduct indicates that Lester Pearce, former Justice of the Peace and brother of recalled ex-state Senate President Russell Pearce, now faces various charges of ethical violations, in part, because he stumped for his brother at a meeting of the former Legislative District 19 GOP.
-Russell Pearce's Supporters in LD 19 Outed as Olivia Cortes Petition Gatherers, while LD 18 Stays Neutral (w/Update)
-Russell Pearce's Brother, Judge Lester Pearce, Stumped for Brother at LD 19 Meeting
-Russell Pearce's Bro Lester Pearce, Busted
-Russell Pearce's Wackjob Bro Lester and His Run In with Cari Gerchick
-Russell Pearce's Cortes Scandal: Tom Ryan Challenges the Media, Lester Pearce Flips Out
And who was the first to bust Lester for campaigning for his bro?
Three guesses, and his last name will make you pucker.
From the statement of charges. See point 11?
Allow me to direct your attention to page three of the statement of charges, where it reads, "Media coverage on October 14, 2011, called Respondent's conduct into question, noting possible ethical violations."
As you can see from my blog dated the same day, I was the first to report that Judge Pearce had stepped over an ethical line at the September 15, LD 19 meeting in question.
