Jan Brewer Ranks Among Worst Governors in Nation, Says D.C.-Based Watchdog Group
Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), a liberal-leaning watchdog group, released a report today naming the worst governors in the nation -- and not surprisingly, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer made the Top Ten.
Good ol' Brewer isn't one to disappoint.
Although she didn't rise to level of "ringmaster" in CREW's circus-themed examination, she did earn the title of "clown."

And it wasn't because she embarrassed herself -- and Arizona -- by sticking her knobby finger in the face of the President of the United States. Or because she -- a staunch right-wing Republican -- erroneously gave a resounding endorsement to President Barack Obama during a live interview at the Republican National Convention. And her "worst governor" status isn't even linked to Brewer's draconian anti-immigrant policies -- such as denying driver's licenses to undocumented immigrants authorized to work or signing SB 1070 into law.
Brewer's Arizona welcome to Obama
Indeed, there are other reasons the government watchdogs gave Brewer that unenviable title.
From the CREW report:
Brewer's inclusion stems from: (1) improper intervention in the state's redistricting process; (2) awarding of unnecessary bonuses; (3) spending excessively on travel; and (4) advocating for new voter identification restrictions.
