Tom Horne Falsely Claims Representative Brenda Barton's Endorsement, After Barton Endorsed Mark Brnovich

Thumbnail image for FeatheredBastard_RESIZE_VF.jpg

When a candidate begins poaching the endorsements earned by his or her rival, consider it a sign that things are not well. You know, like Captain Queeg playing with his ball bearings in The Caine Mutiny.

Last week, shortly after Mark Brnovich's campaign sent out an announcement that state Representative Brenda Barton was endorsing Brnovich in the Republican primary for Arizona Attorney General, incumbent Tom Horne sent out a list of legislators endorsing him.

And on Horne's list was Brenda Barton.

Brnovich's announcement re: Barton's endorsement

Neither the Horne campaign nor the Attorney General's Office responded to my requests for comment on this matter. Not that I can blame them.

Naturally, Barton was puzzled by Horne's claim.

"As for the motivations of the Horne campaign I cannot speculate," she said in an e-mail to me over the weekend. "It may be just a case of one hand not knowing what the other is doing. Mr. Horne and I have not spoken for quite some time."

Arizona is a zero-tolerance state driven by powerful prosecutors and draconian mandatory minimum sentencing. Those in a position of trust who violate the public trust, should be charged with a felony/felonies and get sent to prison.

The prosecutor determines who goes to prison and for how long, determines who lives and who shall die in Arizona. They better have impeccable professional conduct. Who has credibility in the top offices in the state to handle this awesome power?

If Arizona Politicians had to posess courage, honesty, and integrity, our State would be in very bad shape.

Thank God for corruption, and deciept.

What a pathetic excuse for a man Horne really is.

Tom Horne reminds me of pig pen.  Everywhere Horne goes a cloud of dust follows him.

Oh boy, I have to wonder if either twice-disgraced, corrupt, narcissistic and mentally sick Pearce and/or Pearce's go-to slime for campaigns Constantine Querard.

Horne is as slimy and as sneaky as Pearce and Arpaio. I wouldn't put it past Horne to put in a fake candidate like Stauffer (during the Arpaio campaign) and Olivia Cortes (during the Pearce recall campaign)

It's time for the voters to fire Horne. Now.

I heard that someone known as Louie Puroll is also 'endorsing' Horne. Apparently Puroll found someone who can embellish a story better than he.


Don Shooter? The state senator who doesn't know how to make an appointment to act like an adult?


Carl Seel? One look at him says it all. He doesn't even have to open his mouth.


How about the former legislator, Lori Klein? While Horne's at it he could drag that skeleton out. Horne doesn't want to be around, however, when Lori is playing with her pink gun. Not good.


Where did Horne ever find a baseball cap big enough, I wonder?

Kelly Townsend, the Mexican-hating, Mormon-hating, insane lady from LD16?  Don Shooter?  Carl Seel?  That list reads like a who's who of nut jobs in this state. Hardly anybody decent is on that list, and it sounds like the ones who aren't insane may have been put on there without their permission.  Tom Horne is circling the drain.  Flush down, already, Horne!

This poor choice of a Law Maker is embarrassing along with the others who are ruining this state. Are there any true leaders out there in the world that can help run this state? We need some young good people to show up for a job to speak for the masses. Give those old corupt Geezers a show on how to PROGRESS society and be HONEST. Is that too much to ask for.?

Go gently into that good night Old Age. Don't burn, don't rave, don't rage as you lie dying in the light.

You're not among the wise men who at their end know dark is right. Your frail deeds might have danced in a tea bag's cup. Yet too little, too late you learned so lie quietly dying in the light.

Curse, bless now with your fierce tears, I pray.

Just go gentle into that good night.

Where else would two politicians be fighting over a throwback like Barton? 


Looks like the clown car is filling up early this time.

Pearce and his Klan were caught red handed in the Felony Election rigging, and manipulating Mrs. Cortez Scheme, why was he and his Klan not charged?!!

*I meant to say if Pearce and/or Querard are running Horne's campaign.

@Pitstop Horne is not a legislator. His task, should he EVER choose to actually do it, is to ENFORCE law and prosecute those who break laws, including himself. Of course he seems to grant himself immunity.

WhoKnows, I have to wonder if Horne has zero ethics because of where he received his law degree.

Harvard Law School is based in Cambridge, MA and Massachusetts is a left-leaning state. Horne's a Republican, so the rules don't apply to him. Plus Horne's a natural-born Canadian, so he's not even qualified to hold the office due to his birth certificate being fake and all.
