Bill Montgomery's "Empty Chair" Rendition: Much More Accurate Than Clint Eastwood's

That's actually Bill Montgomery's Democratic opponent in the chair.
Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery has his own version of Clint Eastwood's "empty chair" routine, and although the Montgomery video is kind of creepy, it's a lot more accurate than the Eastwood performance.

See, President Obama actually exists, whereas Montgomery's Democratic opponent does not.

The Montgomery performance is in an online video released by his campaign -- a campaign that's pretty much a formality. Montgomery's only opponent is Libertarian Michael Kielsky; Montgomery got nearly three times as many votes as Kielsky in 2010.

Missing, of course, is a Democrat.

Believe it or not, there are more Democrat-type lawyers in Maricopa County than there are unicorns, and the county has more registered Democrats (503,131) than there are leprechauns. Sure, nobody wants to set themselves up for the slaughter, but Democrats just saying "nope" to running against Montgomery looks pathetic too.

Rightfully so, Democrats get clowned by the creepy cartoon Montgomery in this mostly boring video:

What a stupid ad for a candidate for the most powerful position in Arizona. Unprofessional and too dumb for words for a "professional" DA / prosecutor.

I sure hope MontyPug cleans out his desk and is out of the County Attorney's Office.

 

He was bought and paid for by the MCSO shurf in 2010. We need a CA that is independent of the Flaccid Fuck-up and will actually prosecute crime instead of pandering to the "birthers" and marching in line with the political party he/she is affiliated with.

 

I almost considered emailing MontyPug telling him that politics should not influence the way he does his job (especially since he's too scared to go after the Old Fool, twice disgraced, corrupt, narcissistic and mentally sick Pearce, Tom "Banned for Life by the SEC" Horne, etc.)

 

Vote for someone who isn't bought and paid for the MCSO shurf this year. Please.

Whoever wins the Maricopa County Attorney's job cannot sweep under the rug the over 200,000 felony cases that disbarred former MCAO Andrew Thomas bragged about during his unsuccessful run in the GOP primary for state Attorney General.

 

The taxpayers will be paying for decades for the damage caused during the Thomas / Aubuchon / Alexander reign of terror. Over-crowded courts, jails, prisons and years long appeals in the courts, not to mention the destroyed lives of families, children (who they profess to "save") and their future.

 

The damage is incalculable and the taxpayers will have the burden. This cannot be swept away any longer.

 

Montgomery, like Thomas see lifelong punishment as the solution. We cannot incarcerate away the underlying problems of prosecutors who no longer seek fair justice but only seek "easy" convictions and career notches on their belts.  Child abuse / sex abuse are "easy" convictions with financial incentives -- an child abuse / sex abuse industry worth BILLIONS.

 

The County Attorneys / prosecutors sit at the state legislature daily to fight against meaningful reform of draconian laws that put all at risk, while on the taxpayers' dime. This is wrong and unethical.

 

The "empty" chair should be a "Pandora's Box" left by Thomas / Aubuchon / Alexander.

 

Wake up people and demand an investigation of these over 200,000 cases!  Which candidate is willing to do his job?

Anon's comment regarding article on disbarred, former MCAO Thomas / "charging" prosecutor ex-DCA Aubuchon / ex- DCA Rachel Alexander  reign of terror.... 

 

"Now how about those 200,000 felony cases he prosecuted the same way?  Those poor people didn't have access to the same legal representation and knowledge about the system as Mary Jo Wilcox and Don Stapley.  Justice won't be complete until every last one of those cases is revisited."

 

reply to comment:  This is the job of the Maricopa County Attorney to open these cases, as Dallas DA Craig Watkins did when he took over the office following a corrupt DA who sent hundreds of innocent people to prison in Texas who spent decades behind bars. It is time to reform Arizona's draconian mandatory minimum sentencing so the prosecutors and bad lawyers can't hide the cases they failed to do anything but take the huge legal fees for the lawyers and "easy" convictions for prosecutors for financial and political gain. Thomas / Aubuchon / Alexander are the example as we have now seen and heard for years and months of hearings.  There has been NO JUSTICE in Arizona for these defendents buried alive behind the walls of a broken prison system."

 

The new Maricopa County Attorney has a responsibility to the "ordinary" people who were falsely accused, wrongfully convicted, over-charged, wrongfully sentenced, wrongfully imprisoned under Thomas / Aubuchon / Alexander's abuse of power. Judge Donahoe stated if they could do this to him, and he sent many people to prison, he wonders how many were innocent?

Boring video using the same trite election year "buzz words" .... What has changed since the early '90's?  DA's / Prosecutors learned from this case on how to win an election. Sick and disturbing.

 

"Witch Hunt" election year mantra of DA Ed Jagels who falsely accused innocent mothers and fathers, wrongfully convicted and wrongfully imprisoned them. This was the early '90's election year strategy. This is 2012. What has changed?   - Executive produced and Narrated by Sean Penn

Lisa Aubuchon Wanted "Hundreds" of Teens Interviewed During Dale Fushek Case, Probe Transcript Reveals - Phoenix - News - Valley Fever

 

http://blogs.phoenixnewtimes.com/valleyfever/2010/10/lisa_aubuchon_wanted_thousands.php

 

"Of the all the cockamamie things we've heard Lisa Aubuchon did while at the Maricopa County Attorney's Office, this has to be the weirdest.

And yet, it seems so -- Lisa.

Five years ago, the story goes, while building the case against the disgraced, defrocked priest, Dale Fushek, Aubuchon wanted to use grand jury subpoena powers to bring in "thousands" of teenagers as a way to collect more evidence."

 

Interviewing "thousands" of teenagers??  Putting children through interrogation by prosecutors / police should be considered child abuse in itself.

If crime has decreased under Montgomery then why did the state sign contracts with CCA (Corrections Corporation of America, private prison corp.) for 2,000 new private prison beds? The prison population did not grow and Arizona should NOT be importing inmates for $$'s which is unethical and immoral -- turning human beings into commodities for $$'s -- which is a poor use of taxpayers $$'s when rehabilitation, job training, education, health care, and building stronger communities would be a better use of Federal Stimulus money and mortgage foreclosure settlement -- $50,000,000.00 plus $50,000,000 plus $17,900,000 (Federal stimulus $$'s).

 

MCAO Montgomery is fighting the reform of Arizona's draconian, outdated sentencing laws that other conservative states are reforming, sentencing a non-violent, first offender to 75 years -- a defacto-life sentence, makes NO sense and is NOT sustainable. 

 

Andrew Thomas and Lisa Aubuchon used the same trite "going after the child molesters" to gain the votes and the $$'s yet over 430 sex crimes cases against children and women went un-investigated. After the election, they switched gears and criminalized undocumented workers = illegal immigrants for $$'s and new private prison beds. Thanks to Chuck Coughlin and the Senseman's / ALEC / SB1070 / CCA / Russell Pearce / Brewer.....

Oh, and yeah, we did actually have a debate, just this morning, at the Phoenix School of Law, moderated by Tim Eigo, editor of the Arizona Attorney magazine. So this video is not only a bit creepy, but also deceptive.

 @kielsky The "empty" chair should be a "Pandora's Box" left by Thomas / Aubuchon / Alexander with their over 200,000 felony cases that demand investigation for abuse of power / professional misconduct of the "ordinary" people.

 @kielsky Tim is a friend of mine and I submitted some questions for him to ask. One was regarding the medical marijuana issue and why Monty was so against it. The other was regarding Horne and his latest antics and what is going to happen with that. Did they get asked?

 

ps I voted for you already.

 @kielsky Hopefully the MCSO shurf doesn't try to buy the County Attorney  position this year like he did in 2010 with MontyPug....

 @kielsky You have our support and vote. Time for a fresh face in the Maricopa County Attorney's office.

 I already did!

 

Montgomery is a sock puppet.  He is giddy over over-turning MMJ and slapping Horne with a wet noodle.  And I like your platform that addresses the over-crowded, over-expensive judcial landscape.

 @Eleanor_Holguin The Horne question was asked, kind of. The Medical Marijuana one was not ... that may have been seen as too much of a softball for me, who knows.

 While we I do not agree with all the Libertarian Party positions,I feel you are a much better choice compared to the person we currently have occupying the CA's office. You have the support of our,ever growing ,little voting block.
