Tom Horne Gets Help From "Studboi1," a.k.a. Paul Babeu, as Well as Steven Seagal, Joe Arpaio, Kris Kobach, Russell Pearce

horne2211.JPG
According to staff at both places, the event actually is to be held at the University Club of Phoenix. . .

Interestingly, Horne's ex-employee and unofficial whistleblower Beattie recently was involved in helping to organize a fundraiser in Phoenix for the "Babeu for Arizona PAC." Small world.

Mrs. Peterson seemed worried by the possibility of undue attention that a blog post from me might bring, so she asked that I not post her address and phone number, which are on the flier for the event.

I reassured her that it was highly unlikely anyone would bother her. (Um, aside from me.) But as she sounds like a nice lady and asked politely, I'm blurring that info.

Chivalry ain't dead, you see.

Another Horne event on the horizon is scheduled for May 13, and it features such right-wing heavyweights as Sheriff Joe Arpaio, disgraced, recalled ex-state Senate President Russell Pearce, Vladimir Putin fan and chicken farm-crasher Steven Seagal, and the Lord Vader of Nativists, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, author of SB 1070.

Though the flyer for this event has been circulating for a couple of weeks, the location given is apparently incorrect.

There is a University Club in Tempe and one in Phoenix. The flier advertises the event for the one in Tempe, but the folks at the Tempe club tell me the event will actually be held at the Phoenix facility, located at 39 East Monte Vista Road.

Carol Osborne, who is in charge of accounting and membership for the University Club of Phoenix, confirmed that the fundraiser will be held at the Phoenix facility, but she would not confirm the date, saying I'd have to call Horne for that.

Is Horne trying the old switcheroo on possible protesters? Could be. With Arpaio and Kobach at the same event, perhaps trouble is anticipated.

Horne may by counting on confusion as an ally. Or maybe the address mix-up is an innocent mistake.

Arpaio's helping Horne is significant. The sheriff backed now-disbarred and disgraced ex-County Attorney Andrew Thomas against Horne in 2012, even paying for independent ads labeling Horne as pro-Amnesty.

But that was then, and it's always nice to have an AG on your side, or in your pocket.

Currently, Arpaio is sitting on millions in campaign contributions, and he doesn't have to run again till 2016.

I wouldn't be surprised if Arpaio used some of that money to help Horne with independent attack ads, either in the primary or, should Horne survive the primary challenge, in the general against Democrat Felecia Rotellini.

Unless, in the interim, Horne becomes so toxic that even Arpaio wants nothing to do with him.

I heard for an extra 50 bucks, Babeu would take you around the corner for some "real face time."

too bad I didn't know about the gathering as I am a lifelong republican(I jumped ship when they went after brother Barry Goldwater for endorsing a democrat for public ed director over a carpet bagging republican) that could show my 1978 voter ID that I still carry,and be let right in,as I also live down the road from there.

I could have worn a camera /glasses with a radio mic to Mr Lemmons sitting outside in a van,directing what questions to ask........that would have been a blast!

kinda like a reality show.



......then again,we could end up as ambushed "illegals" in the desert! LOL

After the fundraiser in Eloy they can all put on Camo Clad garb, and ambush some Hispanic's just incase they might be un-documented, like a couple of years ago right Sheriff Babeu?!

"Horne becomes so toxic that even Arpaio wants nothing to do with him."


I really don't think it's possible for anyone to become so toxic the elderly guy won't want anything to do with him. All the old asshole cares about is having someone in the office who he can control. That won't happen with Rotellini and the local sheriff knows that. In fact Rotellini is expected to actually do her job as state attorney general, where she will have jurisdiction over MCSO.

I think you answered your own question: Arizonans are not in their right mind.

You guys ever notice the advertisement bar at the top of new times pages, just underneath the navigation? there's one that's titled "date locally" and whenever I accidently mouse over it, a fucking chicklet-toothed wookie pops up and scares the shit out of me.

This bandwagon has some really strange characters, the gay log cabin republican sheriff who harbored a illegal Mexican lover, Seagal the wanna-be cop who has some questionable sex allegations from some women who say he abused them, Kobach the white supremacist writer of SB 1070, Russell Pearce the former booted state senate president and pal to the late Neo-Nazi commander JT Ready!

Maybe Joke will still be in a cell for contempt of court the day of this event.


And we all know that Seagal is just being buddy-buddy with Putin and Horne in  hopes he might get a deal on underage sex slaves from the Russians.....

I forgot about Steven Seagal. That fat bastard ought to move to Moscow or Stalingrad... He supports Vlad Putin, after all!

The Fetid Fossil from MCSO has quite a bit of his own shit to worry about. Like a certain federal judge tightening the vice grip on the old man's flaccid balls come Wednesday....

Arpaio is more toxic than mercury at room temperature. Same with twice-disgraced, corrupt, narcissistic and mentally sick Pearce.

The Babbling Bald Imbecile from Pinal County covered up the old man's corruption from the Maricopa County War (corruption I have first hand knowledge about, thanks to Lisa Aubuchon....), plus his handling of the Louie Puroll bullshit.....

Kris Kobach should just stay in Kansas, where the corrupt and mentally sick rule....

@MaskedMagician1967  "Arpaio is more toxic than mercury at room temperature" Good line. But Arpaio remains popular with regular Rs and fruitcake rightists  That's why he has $4M in the bank.

I mean Hispanic's like the ones Murdered in Eloy a few years ago by Camo Clad Sniper rifle  Vigilante's.

The legal status was checked by Pinal County Sheriffs after they had been ambushed, and Murdered.

Call it what you want to you Racist.

@ConcernedCitizenAZ  I wonder when he is going to ante up for his part of the lawsuit costs for 1070..lol its kind of pathetic..only they could champion something that in the end was found to be Unconstitutional, and cost the tax payers millions.

@johnlancaster85035

Right on.

Only in Politically Corrupt Arizona the legal system allows Murdering Hispanic's with no investigation, and grants "Amnesty" to Child Molesting Sick Racists like Chris Simcox because he is one of the Political ring of  Racists.

We need a Better Arizona.

@DNichols Have you ever watched any of "the amazing racist" videos on youtube? They are so funny! Look for the one called "mexicans," where a jewish guy picks up a bunch of illegal alien day laborers and tells them that he needs help building a deck. Instead of taking them to his house, he pulls up in front of an INS office and parks. The mexicans run in all directions as the jewish guy ROFL's at them.
