So the Arizona Republic describes Jonathan Paton is an even-tempered “establishment” Republican. Which you are supposed to interpret as “moderate”. Oh really? Here’s Paton’s Center for Arizona Policy questionnaire for 2012.


In question 2, Paton indicates that he will generously allow an abortion in cases where the woman’s life is in danger. But wait! In question 4 he agrees with allowing health care providers to opt out of any procedures that conflict with their “moral or religious beliefs”. No exceptions for your life in that.

Paton answers the rest of the survey 100% in favor of CAP positions, sensible establishment moderate Republican that he is.

    No exceptions noted. Geuss that clears that up.

    He’s gotten the endorsement of the Susan B Anthonys, which is where I caught the clue.
