ArizonaGOP Shenanigans of Proxy Gathering To Oust Precinct Committeemen Series 2

COMPLAINTS ABOUT THE GAME PLAYING WITHIN THE PARTY JUST KEEP COMING IN.

1.  PC's are being systematically eliminated in numerous LD's by signing
 up "ghost PC's" for the sole purpose of using them for proxies only. These
 2. PC's are usually told they do not have to attend meetings or be active in
 anyway.  Active, hard working PC's are being forced out by filling a
 precinct with "ghost PC's" and then using John McCain PAC money to send
 out mailers to voters instructing them who to vote for and leaving off
 active PC's.
 *** Many active PC's have also been forced out of being State
 Committeemen with the abuse of the proxy system***
The (Sandy) Bartlett BunkerComplaints About The Game Playing Within The Party Just Keep Coming In. Dec 19, 2016 issue -- “PC's are being systematically eliminated in numerous LD's by signing up "ghost PC's" for the sole purpose of using them for proxies only. These PC's are usually told they do not have to attend meetings or be active in anyway.  Active, hard-working PC's are being forced out by filling a precinct with "ghost PC's" and then using John McCain PAC money to send out mailers to voters instructing them who to vote for and leaving off active PC's.  (Many active PC's have also been forced out of being State Committeemen with the abuse of the proxy system).”
    Here is a portion of detailed report of a speech given by Rustin Pearce at his LD 25 meeting listing the abuse of power by certain PC's in LD25: “…State Committeemen have one responsibility… to attend the Mandatory State meeting. I wish they had the integrity to do what they sign up to do. Please do not vote for someone who is not going to show up. Those that got blocked by “this group” are good people who are active and attend their meetings. Some even went to the State Meeting to get work and get signatures but they couldn't have a voice or a vote. When did signing up with no intention of showing up become ok? Or Worse, the sole purpose of signing people up is to block someone else from participating. The sad part is this group is almost all from one demographic- one religion.... The Mormons!
    “One of our board members asked this question. “How much integrity is lost in order to manipulate so many people for the purpose of power and control?” I have had a few of the good Christian folks that work side by side with the working PCs ask why the Mormons are doing this? Why do they run with no intention to show up? My answer is we are not as honest as we claim to be.  Maybe because someone important (Montagues, Roc Arnett, Kirk Adams, Soelbergs, John Giles, Worsleys or the Pearces) asked them to. This happens on both sides, it’s 16 time (sic) worse on the Montague/Moderate side.”…   See What Happened To The Arizona Republican Party ?? for the rest of this post..
In LD17 This Was Handed Out At A Meeting.  Many Active Pc's Were Forced Out Or Are No Longer State Committeemen.  (Also from the Dec 19 Bartlett Bunker)

This Link retire-john-mccain Leads To a Report on part of the McCain purge in 2016. He (reportedly) purged many more in 2014 as alleged revenge for being censured by State Committeemen for acting and voting more like the Democrat than a Republican, according to this AFA report. 
Also see Graham to O'Connor 12-9-16 ; and newly elected LD23 Chairman Nancy Ordowski’s response challenging what her LD23 Board and their legal counsel “believe is an unjustifiable attempt to prevent their participation in the upcoming AZGOP Statutory meeting.” Ordowski to Graham 12-15-16.
LD24 PCs Also Report Shenanigans. Sources, who opt not to be identified for fear of retaliation, say a well-known PC who resides in LD28 which is outside of LD24 gathered numerous LD24 proxies that were turned over to a LD24 PC just prior to their Organizational meeting.
LD13 PCs also report that “paper PCs” who rarely – if ever, attend meetings were elected LD13 officers and  state committeemen over the more conservatives work-horse PCs who had pounded the pavement for several years for voter registration gathering, etc.
MCRC Editors Note:So far, PCs in LD13,17, 23, 24 and 25 have PCs strong enough to speak out and address the various shenanigans including the “purge of conservative PCs” and “proxy harvesting” that has been occurring for several years. It is time the legislature addressed proxy harvesting, as they did ballot harvesting. As one PC commented, “We are tired of the “Cow Bells” attempting to control the county and state statutory meetings.” What’s a “Cow Bell?” “Someone wearing multiple proxy vote tags. You know how they put a bell around the lead cow’s neck, so other cattle will follow,” he explained.-end-

As you can see, this is anything but Grass roots. Most of the donors are from outside Arizona. If you are disgusted with Money influencing votes and buying people off in DC, you apparently aren’t familiar with the influence money has in our local PCs.  Kind of sobering to think money can buy votes here, too.
