Yet another televised debate ignores reproductive rights.

This is getting old. Monday night’s Clean Election debate was aired on Phoenix PBS Channel 8 and, of course, there was not one question on the candidates’ stances on reproductive rights. It’s as if the entire MSM here has developed amnesia about the legislature here and their constant attempts to restrict and deny access to […]

APS stooges running for AZ Corp Comm are shady, even for Republicans.
