Rachel Alexander, Broke Right-Wing Blogger With Suspended Law License, Finds Suckers to Pay Cat's Surgery Bill

Rachel Alexander continued to beg for donations to "save the life" of her cat for two weeks after the cat's surgery.

Conservative blogger and disgraced Arizona lawyer Rachel Alexander announced on Monday that she'd raised enough money from her right-wing readers to save the life of her cat, Buckley.

But a closer look at Alexander's previous writings shows that Buckley's life had already been saved. Alexander just needed to pay the bill.

As we detailed on Monday,, Alexander had resorted to begging for cash for Buckley the Cat's surgery in the aftermath of a financially ruinous legal scandal involving top Maricopa County officials.

"His owner Rachel cannot afford the surgery due to being attacked the last few years for being a conservative blogger, which has crippled her finances," said a statement on Buckley's web site on Monday afternoon.

A short while later, an update appeared on Alexander's blog, Intellectual Conservative: "In less than two weeks, 51 of our kind friends contributed the full $1750 needed to save the life of Buckley the Cat. Buckley has successfully had the surgery and made a full recovery!"

Buckley's life was actually saved on the first day of the fundraiser, as Alexander's Twitter feed shows.

She began begging for money on December 21 with a post on Alexander's Intellectual Conservative web site. "Save the Life of Intellectual Conservative's Buckley the Cat!" read the headline.

Then, also on December 21, after raising $500, Alexander posted a picture of a sad-looking Buckley along with this text: "Here's what I look like now. I have a cone and a feeding tube, but I made it through surgery!"

Yet Alexander continued to collect money and pimp the effort with numerous tweets.

"Help @Buckley_IC receive the #Christmas miracle of life saving surgery!" reads one on December 22.

We weren't the only ones to be fooled by Alexander's wording into thinking the surgery wouldn't happen unless Alexander collected the $1,750.

One of her followers, Just Call Me Master, writes on December 24, "We have almost enough to #savebuckley the conservative kitty cat!"

Cha-ching!

Alexander moved to Seattle a few months after being stripped of her law license in a high-profile state Supreme Court disciplinary procedure.

Her former boss, former Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas, was disbarred in April for perjury, filing malicious and bogus criminal cases against political enemies, and other ethics violations. Another of his subordinates, Lisa Aubuchon, was also disbarred. Both women are appealing the decision by a three-member panel headed by Judge William O'Neil. On August 31, the Arizona U.S. Attorney's Office declined to press charges against Thomas or his alleged accomplice, Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Alexander played the role of stooge in the power-play by Thomas and Arpaio, taking an incompetently crafted racketeering lawsuit against county leaders, judges and local lawyer and re-filing it for Thomas after Aubuchon recused herself from the case.

With her law license in limbo, Alexander could no longer handle bankruptcy cases to support herself. The business that was the sole source of income for her fiance's four children, Alexander wrote in court pleadings.

At least she won't have to worry about that veterinary bill.

http://intellectualconservative.com/index.php ie Rachel Alexander. She wrote an article about the trend of Marijuana Legalization. It was so full of lies and devoid of facts, I wondered if she didn't plagiarize it from some Reefer Madness era stuff. She falsely claimed that THC damages the immune system. Totally pulled that one out of her cat's ass. Look, people, this woman is a LOSER with NO CREDIBILITY trying to ride any coat tail that will come along. All right wingers fall apart HARD when they go broke. Going Broke and being a Right Wingnut reduced to a Basement Blogger Troll - now THAT is some funny shit, you don't need to do any research to get that one right.

You people who comment shouldn't type on your keyboards and remove all doubt for us about your ignorance.  Really Ray, is there not enough to report on in the valley. Looks like you have a personal vendetta with someone who has moved on. Too bad you can't let go and move on as well.

Peter, your conspiracy theory gave me a good chuckle. What an imagination you have!

You didn't need to post Mark Dixon's affidavit below, because it's already in the article, albeit indirectly. Notice that William O'Neil's name is highlighted as a web link -- if you click on that, it will take you to a May 30 article I wrote about Dixon's complaints against O'Neil, and that article includes a link to Dixon's affidavit. As my article about Dixon and O'Neil points out, Dixon's affidavit has some credibility problems. And "Peter," so does your comment.

Folks, there is something you need to know. This is a nonstory. Ray Stern is trying to create a story, because he has a relative or friend at the Arizona Supreme Court feeding him information. I work at the Arizona Supreme Court. Stern knows someone there who is buddies with Judge William O'Neil, the disciplinary judge who is attempting to suspend Rachel Alexander's license, and who suspended Andrew Thomas's bar license and his deputy Lisa Aubuchon. Stern is unethically helping Judge O'Neil smear Alexander and the others with these articles about nothing. If O'Neil can portray the three as unethical, he thinks his decisions against them won't be overturned. O'Neil is a crook and his scuzziness is about to be blasted far and wide Read this affidavit by a former close friend of his who is now a whistleblower: http://www.scribd.com/doc/95107855/Mark-Dixon-Affidavit-4-24-12

Really!!!! There should be an age limit for who can post on here...I didn't realize we allowed 6th graders with dirty, disrespectful mouths say whatever they want here!! All your nasty words and comments..I could care less that some of her info is not correct and she let everyone know also that the cat was ok. She kept stating thanks to my FRIEND..for donating...I think anyone who acts like this has lost ALL credibility in their story.So, if you want people to believe your bologna act mature and appropriate!! Unethical..well sir you sure are!!

This is an odd bit of journalism. Is the point to kick a person (and their cat) when they're down? No one who didn't choose to donate was forced into it. She seems to be very upfront, even the article makes this obvious, in letting people know via tweets and photos that the cat had already had the surgery. She keeps an update and stops collecting at the required sum. Someone is a hater. Why not economize with: I'll get you my conservative pretty and your little cat too!

@Peter non story my ass Peter...arpaio went after judges because he didnt like their rulings, and Alexander, Aubchon, and Thomas tried to help him do it..and it cost them their careers! The real story is, why is arpaio still in office after his part in it? Ironically enough, its the same people that holler at the moon that Obama is this communist oppressor who ignore such a blatant act of fascism and violation of our Constitution.

Yes, thats what i call it when a sheriff goes after judges because he doesnt like their rulings.
