County Supervisor Fulton Brock Won't Seek Re-election Following Family's Uber-Public Sex Scandal

Fulton Brock is giving up the seat he's held since 1996.
Maricopa County Supervisor Fulton Brock announced this afternoon that he will not seek re-election, which appears to be the final chapter to one of the most bizarre sex scandals in the history of both sex and scandals.

Brock's now-estranged wife, Susan Brock, currently is serving a 13-year prison sentence for repeatedly sexually abusing a teenage boy, starting when he was just 14. The county supervisor's adult daughter, Rachel Brock, was sentenced to 10 years probation for abusing the same boy.

See our cover story on the Brock family circus here.

"The previous 18 months have been very challenging for my family. I love my job and would be honored to serve another four years, but my first priority is my family," Brock says in a statement released today. "I look forward to spending more time with my children as we put our lives back together. I appreciate the public respecting our privacy as we work through family issues. I am proud of the achievements we accomplished together, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for the privilege of serving the public."


As we outline in our cover story on the Brock case, Supervisor Brock tried to hide evidence of his wife's crimes, and used his powerful position in county government (and his relationship with Sheriff Joe Arpaio) to make things as comfortable as possible for his wife while she was in a Maricopa County jail -- and to arrange special meetings with her that would not be recorded by detention officers.

At one point, Brock even considered trying to convince Governor Jan Brewer to grant Susan a pardon.

Supervisor Brock, however, was never charged with any crimes for the attempted coverup of the his wife and daughter's relationships with a teenage boy.

When asked if Brock would be charged, the lead detective on the case told New Times "don't hold your breath."

Currently, there is only one candidate for Brock's seat -- Denny Barney, a Gilbert Republican, filed papers in April to run for the seat Brock's held since 1996.

Good riddance to a corrupt and slimy individual.

I always knew Brock was mentally sick and corrupt, right up there with Pearce and the Flaccid Failure.

He continued to cover up for his wife and his daughter after the meeting at his church, and at one point, told police that he would get the MCSO shurf to stop a search warrant on his house, knowing that the evidence against them was damning.  

Hopefully, we can get a non-Republican on the MCBOS that will actually represent the people.

I also think people in the church who knew should be held accountable.  the blind eye that was turned on them and their attempt to also cover the thing up is disgraceful and telling of a religion that relies on believing some pretty absurd history (not that any religion is not absurd).

 Would this be a "Church" or rather a "Criminal Enterprise" ?

And we all know that will never happen.
