Joe Arpaio Pal Thayer Verschoor to Take Over for Brett Mecum as AZ GOP's Executive Director, Sources Say

With the ouster of now-former Executive Director of the Arizona Republican Party Brett Mecum, Thayer Verschoor, a veteran of the Arizona Legislature and short-lived communications director for the AZ GOP, is getting a promotion.

Sources tell New Times Verschoor has been slated to take over for Mecum as executive director of Arizona's dysfunctional Republican Party.

Following a failed attempt to get elected treasurer of Arizona, Verschoor took the gig as communications director. He's been Party Chairman Tom Morrissey's number one cheerleader ever since. Click here to see a gushing email Verschoor recently sent out in regards to his main man Morrissey.

Verschoor served eight years in the Arizona Legislature, and has the backing of all the usual suspects in the far-right-wing-nut fringe of the state's Republican Party, including state Senate President Russell Pearce, and Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Arpaio once pimped Verschoor's campaign for treasurer with the following:

"In these challenging times for all Arizonans, it is important that they have a protector of their tax dollars who has demonstrated leadership in fighting for smaller government and economic growth. Senator Verschoor is the one candidate for State Treasurer who has fought for Arizonans' financial safety and security in the same manner that I have fought for their physical safety and security and I am proud to endorse him for Arizona State Treasurer."

Mecum was given the boot yesterday following a series of incidents of immaturity, including a simulated superhero blowjob, being "creepy around women," allegedly selling political endorsements, and apparently disregarding posted speed limits on a Valley highway.

Verschoor did not immediately respond to New Times request for comment.

Funny everyone focusing elsewhere..... Appears Tom and Brett came to 'agreement' of 'firing' vs resignation so Brett could file for unemployment on the very same day of Tom's Polk County NC petition for delay in  foreclosure hearing. Facts will show that our very THOMAS P MORRISSEY, family values guy who espouses personal responsibility and less government alongside of his 'new...5th'wife  (LOL & forget the many live-ins along the way and court records reflecting) are currently defunct on 3rd mortgage they've defaulted upon....  in 2 years... Scumbags!!! Let us satisfy your debts... think not.

Isn't it amazing how these politicians always land on their feet at one cushy job after another, usually in some governmental or quasi-governmental agency?

They are the biggest welfare queens in the USA.

In light of what's been revealed since November (Arpaio's irresponsible overspending, etc.) the contents of that Arpaio  endorsement letter is a gas.

Arpaio's probably dancing on the tables right now...another one of his buds in an influencial place.

However, the AZGOP and Mr. Verschoor, should take note.

After Arpaio's illegal SCA contribution to the AZGOP and the AZGOP's subsequent illegal "bash and trash Saban" ad, add to that the Fiesta Bowl corruption...WE WILL BE WATCHING YOU AND YOUR ACTIONS AZGOP!

I sure as hell won't be contributing any money to the AZGOP for a long time.  The AZGOP has a LONG WAY to go to demonstrate to this voter that they have become an ethical and law abiding organization. 

The AZGOP has done a great job running moderates out of the party and changing them into independents.  Any bets on how all this extremist and corruption crap is going to play out in the next election?

Yet another corrupt Republican in the state GOP supported by the Stupid Shurf.....

Verschoor is nothing more than an Arpaio sock puppet ready, willing, and able to do the Senile Spinster's dirty bidding against his election opponents......
