James King of the New Times covered the trainwreck that is the Arizona GOP today. The rift is over recently elected State Chair Tom Morrissey, whom a bunch of Republican activists want to give the boot on account of what they describe as incompetence and the unseemliness of five times married Morrissey being the standard bearer for the party of alleged Family Values.
King posted a memo from Maricopa County GOP Chair Rob Haney:
Dear EGC members,
Because of the air conditioning problem at the State HQ, our EGC meeting on May 5th will be held at the Goldwater Institute at 500 East Coronado Rd.
Representatives from the Maricopa County Elections Department will give a presentation on redistricting and their plan on saving the county large sums of money in future elections. This plan will include eliminating 300 to 400 precincts by combining adjoining precincts. They would like your thoughts on the plan since the plan will naturally involve reducing the PC quota by one for each precinct that is eliminated..
Since the topic is of great significance, I plan to devote the entire time to their presentation, your questions and your input about the plan.
Ah yes. Good old “nonpartisan educational organization” Goldwater.
Here’s a fun musical tribute to our embattled GOP state chair:
