Tom Horne Cozies up to Richard "Women in the Front" Mack, and Ammon Bundy, Son of "Welfare Cowboy" Cliven Bundy

Fortunately, I've not had to get too close to Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne lately, as the stench of desperation coming off the guy is practically visible, like the cloud of dirt that followed around Charlie Brown's pal Pig Pen in the old Peanuts comic strip.

Horne clearly hopes a lurch to the loony right will save his sorry fanny from an embarrassing defeat by GOP rival Mark Brnovich, who rightly called Horne a "chameleon" in their recent debate on Channel 8's Horizon.

Over the years, Horne has morphed from liberal Democrat to moderate Republican to hard-right Republican, and now seems to be shape-shifting into far-right, anti-gub'mint extremist, a role that, sadly, appeals to more than a few in the Arizona GOP.

Come one, come all...

Take, for example, Horne's planned appearance at a Libertarian beer-drinkin' event "Liberty on Tap," this Wednesday evening at Scottsdale's Papago Brewing Company.

No knock on Libertarians, by the way. Rather, the knock is on the event's guests.

See, Horne will be there with former Graham County, Arizona sheriff and all-around wingnut Richard Mack, and Ammon Bundy, son of Cliven Bundy, the "welfare cowboy" infamous for not wanting to pay his bills and for his ignorant remarks on race (e.g., "I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro.")

A spokesperson for Horne's campaign confirmed via e-mail that Horne will be at the event, and that the campaign is aware of the other participants.

Mack and Ammon Bundy are familiar with each other, because, as you may recall, Mack was hanging out up at Bunkerville, Nevada earlier this year, lending support to the Bundy family in its standoff with federal authorities over old man Cliven's unpaid grazing fees.

In fact, during an interview with Fox News at the time, Mack said that he and other Bundy partisans were thinking about using the females among them as human shields.

Excellent timing: The day before Horne's event, Las Vegas police announced that Ammon Bundy's brother, Lance, has been arrested (again). http://goo.gl/spuyZ4

Horne is a complete chameleon who will say anything to mask his ethical failings.  He appeals to the racists and xenophobes who will forgive absolutely anything anyone does as long as they espouse anti-immigrant rhetoric.  He should have resigned after the FBI caught him doing a hit and run while having an affair with his alleged mistress--an incident the FBI witnessed while investigating Horne for cheating in his last election, which was long before the investigations into Horne for using his office staff and resources for his personal campaign.

I will be "buying a vowel" for HornieBoi's opponent's last name Vanna, and will also vote for him in the primary!


I really want Horne and Hoopycaller to lose in the primaries (well, and Thomas too), as that way they can only blame the GOP for their own disasters!

Cliven Bundy's son? He was recently exposed as a felon! As to the Oath Keepers they are a joke, used women as human shields, and now are deemed by home land security as domestic terrorists! I guess birds of a feather do tend to flock together, felons, domestic terrorists, unethical folks with no morals or ethics!

...and Horne continues to dig the hole deeper. Hopefully it will be deep enough to put Bozo Joe Arpaio and AndyDandy Thomas in it with Horne.

Rotellini needs to use this to her advantage.

I think she has an even bigger and better chance of winning the attorney general race.

What are the odds that before this primary is over the Attorney General will end up pressing the flesh with folks who, in the language of HB 2281, "promote the overthrow of the United States government"?

@sarahbeattie88 Stage an armed standoff with federal law enforcement and he might reconsider.
