Andrew Thomas Wusses Out of Disbarment Appeal; Judge May Order County to Pay Mary Rose Wilcox; Conley Wolfswinkel Wins Again

Here's a quick rundown on Maricopa County news today:

* Andrew Peyton Thomas, former Maricopa County Attorney, failed politician and author of right-wing books, won't appeal a state Supreme Court Disciplinary Panel's decision to cancel his law license. We've cut-and-pasted his wussyish comments about being railroaded below.

As Thomas explained in a guffaw-inducing news conference recently, in which he compared himself to Martin Luther King, Jr. and Gandhi, he's hard at work on a new book about the "corrupt" forces in Arizona he believes are responsible for his downfall. If he ever manages to get it published, our advice is to wait a few weeks -- sellers on amazon.com will be giving away new copies at bargain-basement prices, like they do for his other books.

The disbarments of Thomas and his former deputy prosecutor, Lisa Aubuchon, will become final on May 10 without a stay from the Arizona Supreme Court. Aubuchon, who's already filed for an appeal, has asked for a stay of disbarment until the appeal process is exhausted; that motion has yet to be ruled upon.

* Conley Wolfwinkel, the millionaire developer convicted in 1993 for writing bad checks ($200 million worth), received good news today from the Arizona Court of Appeals -- he doesn't have to pay a $171 million court judgment. A trial court ruled in 2008 that he didn't have to pay the judgment in the complex case of a land deal gone bad. Plaintiffs in the case, including former America West Airlines chief Bill Franke and lawyer Leo Beus, had appealed that ruling.

Wolfswinkel became a key side-story in the trumped-up allegations brought by Thomas and Sheriff Joe Arpaio against county leaders, judges and lawyers. The developer was named in the poorly evidenced federal racketeering lawsuit launched by Thomas and Arpaio. As part of Arpaio's investigation into County Supervisor Don Stapley, and an office linked to him was raided by deputies.

As New Times detailed in an article last year, one of Arpaio's top-ranking deputy chiefs believed that Arpaio's ulterior motive in the raid was to generate publicity.

The Beus and company case against Wolfwinkel, some New Times sources believed, may have spurred Thomas to seek an indictment against Stapley.

Read today's Arizona Court of Appeals decision here -- as soon as you've had your late-afternoon triple-shot of espresso.

* U.S. District Court Judge Neil Wake is considering whether or not to order Maricopa County to pay Supervisor Mary Rose Wilcox a $975,000 settlement. Wilcox, one of the victims of Thomas and Arpaio's discredited crusade, claims the settlement's a done deal and demands the money.

Pussy boy ought to shut the fuck up or at least thank God Thomas Horne is is the current Arizona Attorney General. If Horne wasn't just another corrupt, criminal, Arizona hack on the take to the highest bidder, pussy boy might well be complaining about how he doesn't get along with his cellie. What a corrupt, criminal fucking state. And don't forget to curtsy to Queen Jan. Amazing, a woman with an IQ of 45 is a governor. Welcome to the third world.

Fuck Andrew Thomas! Acting like he was railroaded... What bullshit! Total denial by a complete fool.

Hey Ray, you've underestimated Mr. Thomas. You can fully expect as aggressive a push from him on politicizing the state judiciary (check the AZ SOS for ballot measures AZLEG already referred, from 2011 SCR1001) as anything he's done about immigration and his failed prosecutorial attempts to target Maricopa County Judges and Supervisors.

It will get ugly. And I hope I'm overstating it, but I figure it's best to not underestimate the wingnut crowd in Arizona these days.

He can no longer suck off the county teat, therefore an appeal won't happen....

The MCSO shurf was in attendance at the press conference in which Candy Andy grew a pair of brain cells and opted not to waste his time and money appealing a decision he knows he will lose.

Then again, the Old Fool doesn't recall being in attendance at the press conference, who Candy Andy is, or why he was disbarred. He was too busy not being able to recall why 4th Avenue was put in lockdown.

As for Candy Andy, the best $100 I have ever spent. Your corruption and criminal abuse of power has been proven beyond a reasonable doubt. My sources within the Justice Department tell me that your sorry ass remains under federal criminal abuse of power investigation and that you are still subject to the indictments and perp-walks that the MCSO shurf & Co. are subject to.

LOL, Candy Ghandi the redheaded pornstached corrupt bag of crap, won't fight, because, he knows damn well he is guilty.  Hey Candy, join the 99.99% of the real world (excluding the nutcases at Sonoran Alliance).

Thomas thinks he is sacrificing as Jesus did. He will know sacrifice when his books sell slowly at $0.37 each.

It won't happen, bit what if Aubuchon wins her appeal? Thomas would feel shit on some more.

I hope that if Wilcox does recieve a settlement,she does the honorable thing and donates it to a charitable cause. I won't be holding my breath,none of the MCBOS has an ounce of integrity and should all be replaced this coming election.

That's because the Board of Supervisors grew a pair of brain cells as well as a pair of balls and opted not to cover Thomas' many criminal misdeeds with taxpayer cash while he was in office...

How exactly was anything proven at all?  Federal prosecutors are forbidden to make extra judicial statements about the criminally accused.  If Thomas was criminally accused, it would be on USDOJ.gov website.

I think your comment is defamatory.

Can't forget the batshit loonies over at Intellectual Conservative...

BTW, I googled Rachel Alexander and came across Intellectual Conservative. I skimmed it just to see what it was about. Rachel weighs about 70 pounds more, has what appears to be really greasy, oily skin, a man's voice, her greasy, oily, unwashed hair, and what also appears to be zits...Gross...

Stapley's running for Congress.

Fulton Brock is leaving to deal with his destroyed family.

Kunasek, Wilcox and Wilson may be in for the fight of their political lives this year.

Where we really need to clean house is at the state Capitol, the U.S. Capitol, the MCSO, and every other statewide office.

On you from Mary Rose Wilcocks? I didn't know you MCSO goons are that desperate. Even for ugly women.

And btw, not here to defend Wilcocks.  She needs the boot from office at any cost.

I always have liked your moniker because it seemed like it took such little imagination. I also always like the fact that you seem so angry at the wrong people. You always come off like the guy/girl who was very unpopular, ultimately not successful in life and resentful due to your either low IQ or your inability to listen to the warnings sound of when you are being played for a fool. Nothing to do for it at this point. Sorry you didn't date the prom queen. But you are one of the best idiots I have ever read!

Actually, the state Bar disciplinary finding of fact make it clear that Thomas & Co. did indeed violate 18 USC 241 and 18 USC 242 when they intimidated, muzzled and barred Judge Donahoe from doing his job.

That is why Thomas & Co. remain under federal criminal investigation, with perp-walks and indictments in the making.

Get a clue and the facts before you post, amigo.

Why does the New Times continue to use her old pics?

Obviously, she hasn't updated them on her site for a reason. A before/after pic would be great journalism of extreme conservatism and the effects of it.

 Yeah, she bans anyone that disagrees with her.  You'd have a better chance in N. Korea than to try to bring some freedom of speech to that shithole of a website she runs.

 LD19 Resident is a liar (false prophet) by omission. 

Prices quoted by
Amazon.com today range from $63.95 for a “collectible” hardcover
edition of Dreams from My Father to $0.01 (or one cent before the $3.99 shipping cost) for a used copy of The Audacity of Hope.  Most "used books" sell for $0.01 on Amazon. 

I hope you all will remember this falsehood he has presented here in order to libel the President and apply that knowledge to interpret the integrity of his future (and past) posts here.

 Stapley had announced for Congressional seat but changed mind. He is not running.

I may be wrong but I seem to remember reading that Stapley dropped his run for congress. Well be that as it may,I do agree that we need a house cleaning at both the AZ Capitol & US Capitol. I feel strongly that the reason there is a attempt by the Republi-Cons to push through all their extremist legislation,is because they know they will lose their super majority in AZ & control of the House in Washington. Change is coming this election cycle. The Tea Bagger extremist have exposed themselves as the radical Right-Wing hypocrites that they truely are. Their days in power are numbered & they know it.

Rachel's a cow anyway.

I really don't care what she has to say. It's all babble and no talk. 

Now, let's see Rachel put her money where her mouth is... $200 says that the state Supreme Court will either refuse to hear her delusional appeal or hear it and uphold the Disciplinary Panel's decision.

Thank you Tommy.

Now, let's see the Old Fool recall why 4th Avenue was put in lockdown...

I wonder if the MCSO shurf knows who you are.

If not, I will tell him all about you once I find out who you are. And it won't take me long.

You best be looking over your shoulder YPS. You should wonder if the MCSO shurf will intimidate, stalk and harass you like he's done to so many people, myself included.

His reference to OSB is regarding the current MCSO shurf. Has nothing to do with the president. OSB is simply a tag with a meaning as applied to the shurf.

That's funny.

I thought his email address would be studboi1@adam4adam.com...
