Jacqueline Breger told the committee that Democratic Governor Katie Hobbs, State House Speaker Ben Toma (R-Peoria) and others executed fraudulent deeds as part of a bribery scheme involving the Sinaloa drug cartel, along with other accusations.

No worries. I am sure the Democrats will demand she is reinstated as they did the guy in Tennessee. We can't have two different systems for similar offenses. (Sarcasm here in case it's not recognized.)

I don't understand. Is there no Federal, State or Local interest in further investigating the claims made by the witness? How can Arizona House members have any credibility with the public, if their response is to expel the member who delivered a witness willing to testify before them? And where are our federal agencies? Do they not have a duty to investigate when someone steps forward, publicly alleging violations of State and Federal laws?

People who are confident of their innocence do not do this sort of thing. Guiltless people do not try to destroy their accusers. I can only conclude that this action confirms that the allegations are true.

Imagine you were a Republican legislator in AZ and one of your colleagues (soccer mom) accused other legislators of having criminal ties, what would you do? I posit that most honest legislators would give a fair hearing and if the evidence weighed heavily in favor of a criminal investigation, they would contact the AZ DPS to continue the investigation.

Can Ms. Harris run in any election to win her seat back? Seems that the Tennessee terrorists can do so, why not Ms. Harris? Oh yeah, sorry, silly me. Ms. Harris is a a Republican un-washed and needs to be banished by the uniparty in power. Well, if she runs, let me know. I'll toss a donation her way.

The national party directs state legislatures, primarily through groups managed by Karl Rove. We see this in Arizona, in Georgia, in Wisconsin. Populist Conservatives are being isolated and punished by allegedly republican leaders. This is Rove Romney Bushies not letting go. Despite the fact that the Tea Party and MAGA represent a repudiation of big government overreach, corruption and ineptitude, these second and third generation glorified college republican members of the political class couldn't find a statesman among them with a flashlight and a GPS system.

Same as New York, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Nevada and all the leftist coast states. Have you seen the state police arrest just ONE ballot drop box knapsack stuffer? Have you seen the state police arrest those that in the middle of the night pull suitcases from under draped and tables to send ballots through the scanners? Have you seen state police arrest rental truck drivers and people in privately owned warehouses handling paper ballots? Hundreds of examples that the police are corrupt, inept or both.

Bipartisan vote. The government protecting their own. On the flip side, I have to wonder if the accuser offered even a shred of evidence to backup what they said. Seems like overkill regardless. Coming down hard on the legislator who supported the accuser gives credibility to the accusations. People will still talk about this. Just not in a government forum. That's how revolutions happen.

Sam Brinton, the embattled former senior Department of Energy (DOE) official, was able to escape jail time earlier this week in a grand larceny case dating back to July 2022. According to Clark County, Nevada, criminal court records, Brinton was ordered to pay $3,670.74 to the victim in the case and $500 in additional fees including a criminal fine. Clark County Judge Ann Zimmerman then handed Brinton a 180-day suspended jail sentence, a sentence that doesn't need to be served, and ordered Brinton to "stay out of trouble." Zimmerman also determined Brinton was guilty of theft of an item with the value less than $1,200.

A California judge has ordered San Jose's Calvary Chapel church to pay $1.2 million in fines for defying COVID-19 pandemic restrictions by meeting for worship and not requiring masks. In a ruling handed down last week, Superior Court Judge Evette D. Pennypacker said the church should pay fines for flagrantly violating Santa Clara County's mask mandate between November 2020 and June 2021. The court found that the county's face covering requirement was "neutral and generally applicable" to all similarly situated entities in the county, rejecting the church's argument that the health orders violated their religious freedoms.

As in most large cities, enrollment in public schools has declined noticeably since the pandemic. (snip) Boston is no exception and the obvious result has been a need to consolidate some services and reduce staffing. This has led to something of a civil war breaking out between various elements in the teachers’ unions. Some progressive advocates are endorsing a measure that would prioritize diversity in terms of which teachers get the boot and which ones are kept on staff. But in Boston, that would mean that many newer teachers of color would be kept while predominantly white teachers with more seniority would be told to clean out their offices.

Those against buying an EV tended to be older, and 71 percent of those who identified as
