Vernon Parker Tattles on Kyrsten Sinema to ASU President for "Party School" Reference

Categories: Election 2012

"MICHAEL!" -- Vernon Parker
Republican Congressional candidate Vernon Parker claims he actually sent a letter to Arizona State University President Michael Crow to tattle on his opponent, Kyrsten Sinema, for calling ASU a "party school."

Parker also tells Crow that Sinema must think the students are "stupid" in the most unintentionally hilarious piece of campaign fodder you'll see today.

-RIP, Arizona State University's Party-School Reputation (1987-2012)

"My campaign has discovered a recording you need to see. In this appalling video, my opponent Kyrsten Sinema, is on record mocking students at ASU," the letter says. "She refers to your university as 'a party school' and suggests that your students are so stupid that they don't realize 'Wikipedia is not an appropriate citation source because they believe if they read it on the internet it must be true.'"

Well, we'll have to go with "no shit" on both accounts there.

ASU was generally recognized as a "party school" for quite some time, beginning with Playboy magazine's inaugural rankings, in 1987. Thousands of students run around in their underwear only at dead-serious institutions of higher learning, right?

Crow's often denied that ASU was ever a party school, although take note that neither Crow nor Parker were ever students at the school. Heck, the Mayor of Tempe went to ASU, and he sure seemed to know how to party.

As for Wikipedia, if you're citing it as a source in grad school, you're probably a little stupid, even though Sinema didn't say that.

So, how upset can Parker actually be about this?

"If Ms. Sinema has the audacity to mock students at such a prestigious university as yours, what else is she capable of?" Parker's letter continues. "If that's how she feels about ASU students, what does she secretly think about voters? Should she really be the person to represent ASU's interests in DC?"

Do you think anyone's actually buying a word of this? To quote our colleague Stephen Lemons, "Only if you're some square doofus like Vernon Parker."

You can find Parker's tattle-tale here, and we're sure Crow will phone him up ASAP to discuss this serious issue.

Suspense kills, some say. Here is the talk page for Ms. Sinema's Wikipedia entry.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Kyrsten_Sinema

 

You will not find another talk page like it anywhere. Quite seriously, imagine devoting all that space to discussing not Ms. Sinema, but an editor of the page.

 

Now take a look at this earlier version.

 

https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B7x6-bhw0qKsT0RsNkY4OWtXc2s

 

Now discuss the issues listed below.  Mr. or Ms. JoeArpaioFan need not worry about Sinematic censorship. A PDF has been made of this little discussion so far. 

 

Enjoy!

Oh and what is wrong with what Vernon Parker said about Sinema, It's true.  Or is this just another case of the New Times helping Sinema hide the facts the same way they are covering up for Penzone?

 

But I see how it is. It is okay for the Democrats to do wrong and not expect to be told on but yet it's a sin when a Republicans spills the dirt on a Democrat.  Just what is wrong with you fucking idiots?

Vernon Parker is a terrible candidate for Congress and will say virtually anything to get elected but this is beyond dopey and reeks of utter desperation.  If he thinks he is going to get the student vote by tattling to Michael Crow that Kyrsten once called ASU a (gasp!) "party school", he is indeed a square doofus. I am sure this will be more important to ASU students than finding out he is full-tilt Tea Party, favors criminalizing abortion even in the case of incest or rape, and calls our center-left President is a "socialist". He is such a panderer to AZ Tea Party pols that he backed his ally and financial supporter Barbara Espinosa when she said on her radio show that she doesn't call Pres. Obama 'the first black president', "I call him the first monkey president". She followed that gem with, "I voted for the white guy!" Parker is so shameless that he had no problem backing this overt, idiotic bigot, even AFTER she was widely mocked across the country for making these scandalous and despicable comments. Well, maybe at least ASU students will like the way Parker rocks that USC t-shirt I borrowed from his Facebook page for my profile pic.

@mitchellwachtel ugh - that is much reading - shows why wikipedia is ever changing - very interesting and I am so glad that people make the effort. For once in my life could I please just once have a candidate that I totally believe in and WANT to vote for? please please please?

 @JoeArpaioFan There is NOTHING immoral with saying something that is true & not racist or bigoted. One might dispute the importance or validity of an assertion, which is being done, but one cannot say the person saying it is prejudiced. If Mr. Parker's mortgage difficulties are an issue, why not consider Ms. Sinema's statements that suggest the University that employs her to be inferior?  After all, if I publicly said something against the hospital that employed me, I'd be fired. & I love the place I work & think it provides wonderful care, by the way. Rest assured, however, that any concerns I might have (& all doctors do have concerns periodically) are relayed as quickly as possible to the appropriate individuals so that patient care is protected.

 @greg.jones His son goes there and bought the shirt for him smart guy. Also the SBA stuff is complete BS. Do you really believe everything that is in the media? wow, if so I feel sorry for you. You have no clue about the facts. Furthermore it seems as if you are upset to see a black republican. That is a shame, stop bashing people who are trying to make this country a better place.

 @greg.jones Why would anyone dilly dally on a speeding ticket for 9 months & then refuse to pay for over a year?  Does that not indicate a lack of respect for the law, something all of us want out of any one empowered to write laws?

 @greg.jones Vernon Parker is the only person fit for Congress.  If you are not black but you are against him you are a racist.

 

If you liberal can call the Tea Party racist for not liking a black president and Hispanics then simply said, if you don't like Vernon parker and you are not black then the real racist is you!!!

 @greg.jones Wikipedia is a good source, maybe not to quote, but there are alot of anal asperger types who live to update it and honestly I know several people bio'd on there - and they are the best bios on the web for these individuals.  Plus if following certain topics and check wikipedia regularly one can see many changes - often cutting edge research that big money interests want to stifle will be put on there and one has to catch it before another comes along and removes it.  So occasionally one can get some good source reference material on wikipedia to  aid search direction.  So call me stupid if you will but often Wikipedia saves me time. 

 

Parker makes himself pathetic. although Sinema does need to put a leash on her lips. There really are no safe targets to mock.

 @sarum  @mitchellwachtel There is an excellent candidate whom all should applaud right now in Arizona, former Surgeon General Carmona! He is fabulous, just the person needed by the United States. Why? Because he will know far better than anyone else what policies need to be implemented as we change our system of medicine. The final result, whether or not they "revoke" the ACA, will radically differ from the prior system. Only Dr. Carmona possesses the needed skills to ensure that the changes will benefit sick people as best as possible. 

 

The issue in this case, however, is that Ms. Sinema is a dishonest racist without respect for the law.  You can always replace Mr. Parker in two years with a better candidate. The district is quite liberal, so it should not be difficult to find a Democrat of your liking to do this; moreover, it is quite logical for a Republican in a very liberal district to become virtually a Democrat..  If, however, you elect this woman, you will be providing an opportunity for a bad person to do horrific things, such as obtaining clemency for Sheik Rahman, now requested by the Egyptians, a goal that Ms. Sinema's organized crime associate, Ms. Lynne Stewart, would very much like to see.  Also, once she is in power, the opportunity to remove her by putting into place a better Democrat is very, very slim.

@Arizonaisthebeststat I don't care if his son goes to USC; good for him, it's a good school. And frankly, I don't care if he wears a USC sweatshirt all day long when he is calling voters at his office. The reason it is apropos is that Vernon put out this absolutely ridiculous press offering with him tattling to Michael Crow about Kyrsten supposedly saying something mean about ASU. He looked like a total ass, making this ham-fisted attempt to pander to the ASU student electorate by raising a silly moronic issue. So it is ironically fitting to point out his proudly sporting the USC sweatshirt on HIS FREAKING CAMPAIGN FACEBOOK PAGE.  As far as his SBA scandal, you are the one who is either misinformed or hoping to dodge the truth. It has nothing to do with believing the media; in fact I have seen virtually nothing about this important character issue in the media. I got my facts directly from the government sources, the report of the Office of Inspector General (OIG):

http://www.sba.gov/office-of-inspector-general/866/14265 and the decision by the administrative law judge from the Office of Administrative Hearings (OAH) rejecting Parker's appeal of his ignominous termination from his sweetheart consulting contract with the SBA:

http://www.sba.gov/oha/3393/15034   I encourage anyone who wants the facts to read these for themselves. Vernon's claims on his website that he was exonerated are laughable after you read the facts.  The OIG is one of the most neutral and objective bodies in the federal govt and performed its investigation based upon concerns raised of misrepresentations an cronyism from the SBA, then run by the Bush admin. OIG found that SBA had suspiciously approved his $1.2 consulting contract despite his being unqualified and ineligible due to the fact he was currently employed by the federal govt. It also found he lied, faked docs to respond to the investigation and had bad business ethics. The OAH heard his formal appeal at which he was represented by high powered counsel and was able to present facts and law to the independent judge. The admin judge rejected his position completely and found that his termination was justified on the basis of misrepresentation and faking docs. It also slammed the SBA for ever hiring him without due diligence. It didn't have to get to the issue of his bad bus. ethics. Vernon didn't appeal this as he could easily have if he had any case. Instead, he filed a frivolous lawsuit asking for $2million from the taxpayers. The suit was thrown out by the court. Look it up. So, we have a small govt. Tea Party guy who has always worked for the govt. except when he got a cushy contact to consult for the govt. (through false pretenses). I'm sure he rails in favor of lawsuit reform too. My problem with V Parker is not that he is a black Republican, I couldn't care less. It is that he is a hypocrite and a phony and, when he is not blathering about petty topics like who called ASU a party school, he espouses extreme right wing positions that I can't abide.

 @mitchellwachtel For a guy who lives in Lubbock, TX, you sure are obsessed with Kyrsten Sinema and Maricopa County. Don't they have any publications in West Texas to troll? Aren't there any local candidates whose traffic ticket histories you can look up? There are actual issues involved here in this race and the bizarre, stupid and misleading "information" you are spewing is not helpful, interesting or welcome.

 @JoeArpaioFan  you  are trying to go accuse people of being racist? thats funny.  you are on other posts going off about how blacks are the problem and are causing all these crimes.

 @sarum You should check out Vernon Parker's Wikipedia page, especially the information about his termination by the SBA for making false statements on his application and then fabricating docs when investigated. Very enlightening about his character, or more accurately, his lack thereof.

mitchellwachtel
mitchellwachtel

@greg.jones@Arizonaisthebeststat But the SBA matter yielded ZERO fines. NADA goose egg. Ms. Sinema's far more extensive negative interactions yielded dinero, more than matching anything with respect to Mr. Parker. As you will notice, whereas Mr. Parker permitted discussion of this on his wikipedia page, Ms. Sinema blocked view of any discussion of her law breaking. It was interesting to see you downgrade Ms. Sinema's persistent offenses against the law, deeming traffic offences that might kill small children as being of far less importance than Mr. Parker's business dealings, corruption free as he is, so far as anyone knows, in Paradise Valley. Anyways, i want you to look at a real REPUBLICAN sleazebag., Yes, a real REPUBLICAN sleazebag. From The New Republic,  October 17.  The title: Five Ridiculous Congressional Candidates Who Will Probably Win by Molly Redden

Pile of cow manure number 4:  

Gregg Imus

California’s 8th District has its pick of two Republicans who emerged from a 13-way June primary. The first place winner in that primary, with 15.5 percent of the vote, is Gregg Imus—a local homebuilder who vows to never vote to raise the debt ceiling (since thatworked out great last time). What little is known of him is not particularly encouraging: Imus co-founded the California chapter of the Minutemen, a notoriously nasty self-appointed border patrol. His preferred term for government regulators is “parasites” and, according to the LA Times, he concludes his campaign emails with the rousing words, “Victory or Death.” He has a criminal conviction for “fighting, noise, and offensive words,” and, for kicks, he seems to have a thing against stopping at red lights.

Traffic offenses & minor violations of law are germane because they indicate disrespect for the law, which should preclude the person from writing laws. Now one does not want to go back ten years, but since thin is assuredly fair game  Habitual lawbreaking is ALWAYS problematic.  The other four candidates are equally bad choices.  It's a marvelous article all should read & enjoy.

You refute nothing; characterizations "bizarre, stupid, & misleading" are bald assertions. I am always willing to change my mind when shown evidence or reasoned argument that shows me to be in the wrong.  By contrast, when all that exists confirms what has been said & the only opposition to what has been said comprises ad hominem attacks, one can do no more than to oppose that which appears ominous.  A connection to the 1993 World Trade Center bombing is ominous, unless, of course, you subscribe to the notion that the 2001 WTC collapse was a conspiracy. Ms. Sinema was MC for a gathering featuring Ms. Cindy Sheehan, a very good example of a conspiracy theorist.

 @squash  @JoeArpaioFan  @greg.jones  Oh, & it should be noted that I think criminal defense attorneys are FABULOUS. They are OUR best protection against dictatorship. Unfortunately, some defense attorneys, as is true of some of every profession, are horrific monsters. Governor Blagojevich was a prosecutor, by the by. So anyways, one of the foulest criminal defense attorneys in history is Lynne Stewart. By heavens, read about the fiend here:

Very very nasty lady, that one. Utterly repulsive. You know, if my brother were accused of murder, by heavens, I'd almost certainly be saying how innocent he was left & right, but once the gavel fell & he was found guilty, I'd likely say "I thought so much better of my brother. He seemed to be the most wonderful man alive to me, but it goes to show you how all of us can descend into foulness."

 @squash  @JoeArpaioFan  @greg.jones  Let us discuss Wikipedia representations together shall we? Why is Ms. Sinema said to be a criminal defense lawyer on Wikipedia? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kyrsten_Sinema All defense lawyers file documents with the County Court. This is needed because that is part & parcel of being a defense attorney, notwithstanding anything you may have seen on Matlock or Perry Mason. Quite seriously this is so.  So why is it, do you think, that ZERO documents appear on the Maricopa Superior Court record? Check for yourself with this  link.  http://www.superiorcourt.maricopa.gov/Search/index.asp?q=kyrsten+sinema Sorry. No results found.

 

Ms. Sinema is definitely appealing. All must agree, but when one speaks of a criminal attorney, one thinks of a person who is appealing when they send appeals to the court. Here's an example. Mr. David Michal Cantor.

 

http://www.superiorcourt.maricopa.gov/Search/index.asp?q=David+Michael+Cantor 100 results

 

Do you detect a slight difference? What if Wikipedia chose to cover up a concern about that? That would make Ms. Sinema into a most disgusting liar. 

mitchellwachtel
mitchellwachtel

 @danzigsdaddy  @JoeArpaioFan Racism is a fascinating thing, you know. Here. Take a gander at Ms. Sinema's Wikipedia page. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kyrsten_Sinema

 

Why the woman looks so good she seems to be a model for Mother Theresa.  A saint in human skin. One topped with, it appears, fake blond hair. What if it could be shown that the editors of that page, which assuredly included Ms. Sinema & her friends, attempted to withhold information from public view despite protests that Black politicians were treated dissimilarly? That would imply Ms. Sinema was a modern day Rep. John Rankin.

 @squash  @JoeArpaioFan  @LoneWolf  @greg.jones SB1070 is not eo ipso a racial profiling law. It was opposed by SCOTUS & by that radical leftist Governor Rick Perry because it pre-empted a federal responsibility. Fourth amendment issues can almost never be adjudged without a case in hand. Enforced appropriately, the law as it now stands will not be racial profiling. All depends on Gov. Brewer & the government of Arizona.

 @sarum  @mitchellwachtel Ms. Sinema frightens me very, very much.  I am attempting to persuade everyone possible to vote AGAINST her.  My wording was less polite than it should have been.  It is very hard to listen to that recording without wanting to vomit. It simply goes beyond party at that point. Governor Palin had many flaws, the worst of which are contained in the Branchflower report (she quit being Governor because the evidence would definitely have caused her to be impeached & booted); nothing she said, however, can possibly be construed as an encouragement to violence.

@JoeArpaioFan How can you logically conclude such from what I wrote? This is exactly why we need to continue the dialogue about race. Perhaps some of us are weary of it but looking at the lack of thought process involved when levying allegations and the lyrics of youth is proof that we must continue the effort, especially if we choose to resist being "played" or "spun" by MSM.
