Jan Brewer Ranks Among Worst Governors in Nation, Says D.C.-Based Watchdog Group

Jan Brewer
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."

Brewer's Arizona welcome to Obama
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.

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.

She's joining a long sad history of Arizona's governors. A one-party state for decades has been overbred for far too long.

She seems to think she is the head of the christian taliban. She pushed an abortion law she knew was not constitutional, she pushed the school vouchers to public schools would become christian schools, and now they are pushing a requirement that all students pledge to God or that can't graduate. Of course it wont become law, but the fact she thinks its a good idea is telling enough.

That DC watcghdog group is of course a bunch of bias liberals so of course it only makes sense they will slam her.

Actually Jan Brewer is ranked among the best governor. It's California Gov. Jerry "Moonbeam" Brown that is the worst.

I don't care about the classification as "one of the worst Governors in the Nation", she has been and still is devastating to the State of Arizona!

You all have got to start writing yourt comments on the Facebook pages of these crooks and liars.

Brewer would have never been elected in the first place if she were not appointed Governor first allowing her to "Seal" the records of her Defrauding Social Security out of $75,000.00 to Reward her Knife Point Rapist Son as he served his sentence.

The "Truth" would have removed all chances of ever being elected!

Would a Group watching Governor Brewer not be called a "Watch Hag Group"?

If my dog looked like Brewer I would shave his butt, and make him walk backwards.

Partisan group attacks elected official whose policies they disagree with.  Non-story.  In other news, Eric Holder hates white people.

Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) is a left-wing attack dog masquerading as a "non-partisan watchdog." An analysis of CREW’s “watchdog” activities reveals a systematic effort to disproportionately target Republicans and conservative-leaning groups with often-frivolous lawsuits, ethics complaints, and petitions for investigations by law enforcement agencies. An analysis of CREW’s activities demonstrates that it disproportionately targets conservatives by a ratio of more than 8-to-1. At the same time, the corresponding federal oversight agencies responsible for investigating CREW’s complaints indicates that, historically, Democrats have been investigated far more often for ethics violations. "For an organization dedicated to holding government accountable, CREW isn't transparent about its own operations. Organized as a 501(c)3 under federal tax laws, it does not have to reveal the names of all its donors. "I wouldn't have any donors if I revealed all my donors," says Sloan."

We didn't need a DC watch group to tell us that.

@Swoosh  We don't need CREW to tell us what we already know, having lived through Arizona's chaotic state for many years.

@Swoosh Is anything this "left-wing attack dog masquerading as a "non-partisan watchdog"  claims about Stinky Finger Jan false?

The answer is NO.

The message is true, no matter who the messenger is.


Nice try at blowing smoke.

@FilthyMcNasty Let's look at another GOP Favorite.  The only US gov with less education than Brewer (she beat him with her xray tech class!).  Under his "leadership", his state has nose dived to 44th in job creation.


And that gov is Scott Walker - in the top 5 on this list too!

@FilthyMcNasty And the right wing loves Scott Walker, even though he's the only gov with less education than Brewer (she had that xray tech training!), and he's driven Wisconsin DOWN to be 44th in job creation.

@JoeArpaioFan @eric.nelson745 Even you would be scared to death if you woke up next to that old bag o' bones. You would be so frightened that you'd give up women... that is, if you're actually into women.

@shadeaux14 @Swoosh The people behind the watchdog group are just as corrupt.  It would be like if we both did something unfavorable to the people but I hide behind an organizational name to point out what you did, while concealing that I am the one bashing you while I am doing the same deeds.  There is no honor in that.  It is just two wings of the same damn bird slinging shit back and forth at each other.  That is who is blowing smoke.


You need to wake up guy.

@WhoKnows @FilthyMcNasty  As a Minnesota resident, I'm benefiting from Scott Walker in Wisconsin.  Despite all the talk from Chamber of Commerce types about how much they love the Tea Party neo-feudal agenda, the jobs are coming across the border into high-tax Minnesota, because we still have a services that work, a somewhat stable standard of living, and we realize that only consumers who earn a steady income can spend money with businesses.  Sorry Cheeseheads, but thanks, Scott Walker!

@Swoosh   Look at another gov on this list - the Gov of Florida.  Who's company was convicted of the largest Medicare fraud in history - while he was CEO!

@Swoosh  Again with attacking the messenger, rather than the nessage. What about the story do you refute, and if anything, on what basis?  Otherwise, you're just deflecting from the actual topic -- which is our governor sucks!  I agree that had the electorate known of her $75,000 scam against the taxpayers on behalf of her rapist son, she'd never had the office...
