Andrew Thomas Releases a Very Andrew Thomas-y Campaign Ad

Categories: Election 2014

Disbarred former Maricopa County Attorney and current Republican gubernatorial candidate Andrew Thomas has released a very Andrew Thomas-y campaign ad.

By "Andrew Thomas-y," we mean there's a crossed-out Mexican flag, and Thomas claiming to stand up to the "gay lobby."

Also, the claim that he somehow managed to stop illegal immigration is what literary scholars would classify as a fairytale.

It only gets worse when you consider that Thomas is running a publicly funded (that's you and me) campaign thanks to Clean Elections.

Did we mention that Thomas lost his law license for blatantly abusing his power as county attorney?

Well, congrats to all who despise disgraced and disbarred former Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas.  He lost the race for Arizona governor in yesterday's primary election so miserably that it wasn't even newsworthy. Gene Wilder said it best during his portrayal of beloved chocolatier Willy Wonka: "So you get nothing!  YOU LOSE!!  Good day, sir!!!".  Now let's just hope this egomaniacal douchebag disappears once again back into obscurity, only to be remembered as the Evan Mecham of the new millennium (sadly, even that racist jacka$$ was elected governor and Thomas didn't even make it past the primary, go figure).


Thank you, Arizona, for coming together to stop the embarrassment further.

After seeing the latest "HATE AD" from Andrew Thomas, I sent him this message.
You are wrong specifically targeting gays in your ads. Frivolous lawsuits tie up the courts entirely too much, but they are brought by more than just the "Gay Lobby" like your ad suggests. You are a liar and have a lot of damn gall running for Governor after being censured (disbarred) when you were attorney general, but then again you are of the same group of people that brought us Evan Mecham and Fife Symington. Keep running your hateful ads, the people will see through them!

Andrew Thoma, and his corrupt daddy Joe should be sitting in a jail cell with a Hispanic cell mate right now for their  Criminal Conduct, and abuse of power.


Then Thomas would probably earn the right to put a rojo cirlce/line over the Mexican Flag above his bunk.


Thank god for "Political Immunity", no matter how corrupt a Criminal you are right Thomas.


You too Joe.

Why he had to mention gays is beyond me....He should have just preached the illegal immigration shit and left it at that. I support stopping the flood of tax draining illegals just as much as any Red , White and Blue American Patriot. If we "invaded" Mexico do you think they would cater to us and give us free shit and Amnesty? lol Fuck no!

Laugh all you want at Andy Thomas and his 5th grade show and tell charts but his campaign is being financed by you and me! That's right, he qualified for public financing for his campaign. Makes you want to do a couple dozen shots of Jack!

Looks like he's strategizing with an elderly woman, along with her middle-aged daughter and that guy from the hardware store who looks like Peter Griffin, to head down to the border and go into battle.  It's not like they have anything else better to do, right?

I mean, really?  Did this guy do the entire ad at his own house?  I nearly died ROTFL when I saw this on TV and saw that there were are literally FIVES of people in the whole thing.  They're probably the only ones who will vote for him.

Outrageously funny, yet totally bigoted and utterly pathetic.

Even the freeze-frame from the ad (above) cracks me up. Those 3 people standing there, seemingly immersed in Andy's sophisticated chart of the immigration problems, must represent Tweedle Dum, Tweedle Dummer and Tweedle Dummest.

Andrew Thomas is nothing but a racist homophobic pig! We don't need another crooked politician like Thomas in office! No wonder why he was disbarred from practicing law because he broke the laws himself! What an idiot!

Wow! What is especially sad is that it was thought out, crossed dozens of peoples' eyes, and it still went to print. How ignorant is he and all that surround him that nobody pulled the plug before landing here?! It's mind-boggling that this level of stupidity exists.

Was this truly from him? It looks very cheap, like a parody. Fact check?

Is this ignorant fuck for real, I feel even worse for the people in the background smiling at the shit he is saying. I'm astonished people actually backing him up. It's something to make fun of, not to take serious. I actually feel bad for people with that mindset because they don't know or choose not to take notice the history of this amazing country, which makes us all unique, and that gay lobby bullshit, really?!?!

Best campaign poster ever. Mexico has always had a corrupt or tyrannical government. Texas would tell you.

When did they let Candy out of his straitjacket and rubber room to run this bullshit?

Did Rachel come up with it? I wonder what her role is in Candy's "campaign"?

This racist, mentally unstable fool should be put back in his straitjacket and rubber room and withdraw from the governor's race.

Shit like this makes me wish the Natives on the eastcoast would have let on the pilgrims freeze and die in the snow when they first arrived. If you didn't originate from Mexico/South America, Canada/North America you are the fucking illegal. Europe is that way Andrew Thomas GTFOH.

Jeff, I hope SNL DOES get a hold of this ad campaign and makes a full blown mockery of this ridiculousness. Everyone must realize that the only thing we can control is how we vote. So GET OUT AND VOTE! Don't expect someone else to voice your opinion.

What an asshole! I guess the Gay Lobby is dangerous. I was expecting someone to scream 'Love from New York it's Saturday Night!" Wasn't this asshole disbarred? All the Republicans candidates are idiots; If you have brown people vote for us.

WTF....
WTF....

And this IDIOT wants to be the Governor by crossing and disrespecting Mexico's flag? Arizona's biggest trading partner!!! 

Does he even know he would have to conduct oficial business with Mexico if he was to be the governor? how is he planning on doing that after this???

Plus it's kinda like this, if someone comes by your house and drops off 7 kids and you can barely take care of your own family. Are you going to take those kids in and pay for them? I think not!

No the ones that have been here and people that have done it the legal way are fine. Think of all the people that have done it the legal way, this shit is a slap in the face to them..

Mr. KIlee do you mean "Hard Working, underpayed Immigrants" that prior to the January 2008 start of the I.C.E. Deportation, and Incarceration programs, and of course the start of the "Great Recession" were the very Foundation of America's then Strong Economy?!


How are you a "Patriot"? 


Please the  word "Patriot"  is freely drug through the sewer by racists in Arizona, please explain how you are a "Patriot"?!

@BArizona LOL -Peter Griffin it is.  That freeze-frame is the epitimy of AZ's lack of education.


We done thought that Mr. T would straiten out stuff between whites and others, but this here danged chart is just too fancy for us.

The million dollar plus house belongs to a couple living in their casitas ,leasing it out to vacationers for a large fee and actually they are bilking many out of hundreds to thousands of dollars in a chapter 11 bankrupt case right now, just interesting how a politician would associate himself and take risks for his campaign and reputation. I'm not sure if Mr. Thomas is aware who he is associated with and how many people are affected not to mention the financial institutions that are at great financial loss due to their actions! Who knows maybe some of the debt is to finance his campaign!!

Rick dear, this is about Candy Andy.


Trust me... We KNOW there are other candidates.


Calm down.

It is genuine. I've seen it on TV several times. Cheap because he has shallow pockets and no big money backing him. And it is clearly Andy Thomas being Andy Thomas. (Delusional Egomaniac.)

Is that why there's been more Republican presidents than Democratic presidents Edward?
