Greg Stanton, Phoenix Mayoral Candidate
Someone slashed Phoenix mayoral candidate Greg Stanton's tires last night while he was at a fundraising event at an art gallery in Sunnyslope.

A witness from a restaurant across the street reportedly saw a large male wearing a hood over his head slash two of the tires on Stanton's gray sedan before jumping into running car waiting nearby.


Stanton's car --among more than two dozen others parked in the area -- was the only one damaged.

Police responded to the scene near Central and Alice avenues at about 8:30 p.m.

"This is the car that I take my children to school in. I have two child car seats in the back. This is my family vehicle," Stanton tells New Times. "My family is strong and we're in this together to fight for the people of Phoenix."

"My family will not be intimidated," he says.

It's Repug and Repug crime. Talk about folks who spit "the rule of law". What a bunch of knockweed hypocrites.

I was sympathetic until he dragged his kids into it. There's no need to mention the fruit of your loins; it's not like they were actually in the car at the time.

Why must politicians always use their children as a political tool?

Sounds similar to he situation where Jerry Lewis, Senator Pearce's recall opponent in Mesa LD18, who was hit in the groin by a large metal padlock thrown by someone driving by in a truck while Lewis was jogging in public.

At least we know it wasn't Sen. Lori "Ruger" Klein.

Time for Gullett to manufacture his own tragedy now. I look forward to the next self-inflicted auto dialer put out by his campaign. Maybe he will accuse himself of satan worship.

Shows the type of person who supports the Gullett Campaign. Gullett is well known for such dirty tricks from previous campaigns and somehow, those who support him find nothing wrong with these tactics.

These are the same Tea Party folks that have slashed other activists tires.  Let me describe them:  Red Truck or Motorcycle.. live in the area.. they have been video-taped with Arpaio and those types.. RAIA-SW   Their main guy lives within a few miles from the incident and this group has terrorized any and all Hispanics in that community.   BTW, they are under DOJ & FBI watch for being an active hate group.  http://www.raia-southwest.com/

Ya know, I'd rather people do this than beat their dates, have sex with minors or lie to the public. 

Still blows.
