Jeff Flake flakes on conference call

Seeing Red AZ

The scheduled 7:00 a.m. opportunity to dialogue with Jeff Flake, Arizona’s junior senator and member of the pro-amnesty Gang of 8, was a bust.

Although his constituents were provided a toll-free call-in number (1-855-428-0808) and ID (# 6224561**) to access the town hall, what we got instead was canned elevator music and ultimately — after at least 15 minutes — a message that informed those who dialed in that “the host” had failed to show.  That was followed by a disconnect. Many tried again, receiving the same message after another extended wait.

Disheartened to be dumped so soon after his many pre-election promises, calls were made to his offices.  Imagine being told that not only did this practiced political suitor dump us, but also the ranchers along Arizona’s southern border he actually intended to talk with.

Ranchers are no pushovers, honing their skills with both the illegal criminals and…

AZ Conservative Coalition: End of session ratings

Seeing Red AZ

The Arizona Conservative Coalition’s (ACC) most recent legislator ratings, reflecting legislative actions as of 6/17/2013 is now available. Click here for the updated report.

Legislators are assigned to a group based on their latest rating. Bills used in the evaluation along with the summary of criteria used to weight bills can be seen here. There is also an excellent, concise analysis of each bill considered.

Be sure to take time to review Howard Levine’s informative weekly narrative, which provides background on the tracking process. This week he discusses a new feature added to the rating system. He also presents an overview of the despicable final days leading up to the legislative sine die.

The folks at ACC provide individual scores for Arizona’s Republican Representatives and Senators. There is quite a variation. This week the Senate ratings range from a high of 93.7 down to a shameful 34.0. In…

SCOTUS tosses AZ law requiring proof of citizenship to vote

Seeing Red AZ

Election integrity thrown a curve by high court

In a ruling this morning, the U. S. Supreme Court said individual states cannot require would-be voters to prove they are U.S. citizens before using a federal registration system to register to vote.

Arizona’s voter approved requirement that prospective voters document their U.S. citizenship in order to use a registration form produced under the federal “Motor Voter” registration law was effectively tossed on its head by a 7-2 vote of the justices.

On March 18, 2013, Arizona’s Attorney General Tom Horne brought the issue of our state’s Voting Rights Act — requiring proof of citizenship when registering to vote — to the U.S. Supreme Court, where he argued on its behalf. (Read his oral argument under link.) Our earlier post and additional background can be viewed here.

Writing for the majority, Justice Antonin Scalia said Federal law “precludes Arizona from…
