Morning Poll: Should State Senator Scott Bundgaard Resign Over Freeway Brouhaha

scottbundgaardfacebook.jpg
State Senator Scott Bundgaard's been asked to resign.
The black eye state Senate Majority Leader Scott Bundgaard allegedly suffered as the result of a right hook from his now-ex-girlfriend, Aubry "Highway Heavyweight Champion" Ballard, is probably the least of the senator's concerns this morning.

See New Times' story on the Rumble Next to the Carpool Lane here.

Yesterday, Senate Democrats called for Bundgaard's resignation. Their cries were met with calls from Bundgaard's Republican caucus-mates to at least leave his leadership position.

Republican Senator Ron Gould told the Arizona Republic "getting in a fistfight with your girlfriend on the side of the freeway is behavior unbecoming a senator...I won't be led by somebody who does those kinds of things."

Republican Senator Rich Crandall echoed Gould's comments, telling Capitol Media Services "this has gone way beyond a personal issue between Scott Bundgaard and his girlfriend."

Bundgaard, meanwhile, says he has no intention of resigning.

"I will clear my name as this issue works through the process, and as more information comes out," Bundgaard says in a statement. "And I will do so in the face of the politics that have now been injected into this issue."

We want to know what you think: should Bundgaard resign?

Scott Speaks! My name isn't Clifton! No brooms over here! Just my gun! My name isn't Joshua! No 5 year state paid "supervised" Chandler probation officer in the backseat of my car. Just my "radicalized" TEAM GOP "Immunity" Badge of no Courage. My name isn't Brewer, no State Hospital Hotel, Motel, Holiday Inn and a new bike and a new state paid ankle bracelet on the way to work. You can call me Scott! You can call me Scotty! But if you do, and you are a female without a "Russell Pearce" notary from your last "wellness" checkup! It's BAM, SMACK Attack for you! It's SHE LIE! SHE LIE! Section 1070 Arpaio you go down at our 4th Avenue MCSO REICH Hotel, Motel, Two for One Immigrant Concentration Camp INN. SHE DO! SHE LIE! Just not me! Just not us! Just not Clifton! Just not Joshua!

He won't resign, politicians in Arizona have no morals or ethic's and most certainly have no clue about doing the right thing.

Buttgaard is just another example of the worthless morons that get elected in Arizona by people that are just as stupid as they those they elect.

He needs to at least resign his leadership position, he's a distration. If he's convicted he needs to resign his seat.

And anyone who voted for him needs to lose their right to ever vote again.

This is just another lesson to men -- You have no rights to self-defense against a woman. Any ordinary man would be arrested with the attacking woman set free.

When faced with such a woman, follow these steps.1. Do not hit back.2. Do not raise your arms to block blows.3. Try to ensure that there are witnesses.4. Call 911.5. When the police officer asks if you want to be a pussy and press charges, say YES!6. Dump her.

or dont have girlfriends that are young yuppies. they are all known 911 cop calling rat snitches and informants. hang out with a better class of women than a greedy yuppie broad. i have had a nice women in my life since 1976 and she never ever has called the cops on me or us. we know in our home that cops are not your friends they are your enemies.calling the fuzz just makes things worse. cops pigs the heat etc are not your friend.

Ill betcha ten-bucks this lame ass is having shots of whiskey and smoking weed with the Senate wannabee Chris Simcox.....both boys have much in common. Both like to overpower and beat their women and take advantage of people....all while surrounding themselves with the GOP elected!

Bundagard is gonna find himself in the same place Chris Simcox is now.....in a one bedroom apartement paid for by a woman, no income, empty whiskey and vodka bottles laid about daily, smoking weed and wishing for the good ol glory days of when they were in the public eyes! Ah yes........Chris Simcox and Bundegard.....together on that lonely deserted island of dispair.....they wouldnt have it any other way.
