Dean Martin Calls Jan Brewer's False Comments About Her Dad's Death "Appalling"

Categories: Election 2010
Treasurer Dean Martin

​After Governor Jan Brewer's office failed to call us back regarding the gov's bogus claims that her father "died fighting the Nazi regime in Germany," we thought we'd give Treasurer Dean Martin, Brewer's opponent in the GOP gubernatorial primary, a chance to weigh in.

"Trying to use the death of a loved on for political gain is appalling," Martin tells New Times.

Martin's referring to claims Brewer made to the Arizona Republic on Tuesday. She's quoted as saying that "knowing that my father died fighting the Nazi regime in Germany, that I lost him when I was 11 because of that ... and then to have them call me Hitler's daughter. It hurts. It's ugliness beyond anything I've ever experienced."

Brewer was referring to statements by some in the legion of anti-1070 protesters who compared Brewer's Arizona to Nazi Germany.

But on the subject of her veracity, as it turns out, Brewer's pops died in California -- 10 years after the war ended.

Martin, who currently trails Brewer in the polls, thanks to her signing SB 1070, says Brewer's t comments are just the latest in a series of embellished statements the governor's made.

"She routinely makes wild statements," he says. "Look at some of the things she said during her campaign to get Prop 100 passed -- if you can't trust your elected officials, who can you trust?"

Who said anybody trusts their elected officials?. That would be stupid.. But we digress.

Martin is referring to scare tactics Brewer used, like saying if the measure didn't pass it would be a "catastrophe" for public services, like hospitals and education, that are used by all citizens.

Martin, who currently trails Brewer by about 27 points, according to the latest Rasmussen poll, says Brewer handling of SB 1070 (ie. collecting polling data before signing it) is a sign of election-year-politics and are no sign of a true leader. 

"What's gonna happen when there's no more immigration bills to sign," Martin says. "Which governor are we gonna get then?"

Governor Jan Brewer probably should have kept her composure during the encounter and perhaps described the incident in a way that did not include the word “threatened” — a loaded word which could be easil
