This one hits close to home and is probably one that we should have covered sooner. Fortunately Breitbart.com has done an excellent job.
This year, Arizona is considering a transition toward an open primary election model that awards the top two vote-getting candidates a chance to fight it out in a general election. Despite the advertised hope that this would level the playing field for all, the legitimacy of the petition and referendum process has unfortunately been called into question.
Open elections, gee that doesn’t sound bad, does it? (Well maybe not until you think about it for about 2 seconds, or when you see who is supporting this.)
Under the proposed system
all candidates, regardless of political affiliation, run against each other for statewide, legislative and county supervisor posts. It also would overrule Tucson’s partisan primary for mayor and council.

Still, if that is what the voters really want in Arizona, then they have the ability to put it or anything else they want on the ballot as Arizona is a referendum and recall state. But there’s the rub – do the people of Arizona really want this. This Arizona resident’s spidey senses began tingling when there were indications of some funny business with the petitions that were submitted to put this on the ballot. Still, a recent Arizona Supreme Court ruling held that even though they weren’t technically submitted on time, that they would be accepted. This ruling overturned a Maricopa County Superior Court ruling, which was based on the initiative pertaining to more than one subject. Hmmm.
Come to find out, the Left is up to its old tricks:
True The Vote and Verify the Vote Arizona began the process of verifying the validity of all petitions circulated in the effort to get the Arizona Open Elections/Open Government Act on the ballot this November. Early research reports offer shocking, flagrant violations of election law.
- 582 petitions have been circulated illegally by convicted felons – some with active warrants for forgery charges (accounting for roughly 6,400 signatures).
- Over 7,000 petitions have been circulated by individuals whose identities, as submitted, could not be confirmed (affecting roughly 77,000 signatures).
- 221 petitions were circulated by organizers failing to disclose a required social security number (approximately 2,400 signatures affected).
- Nearly 1,220 petitions were submitted by those who failed to register with the AZ Secretary of State as out-of-state organizers.
Is there any depth that these people won’t stoop to? We’ve had dead people and barking dogs put on the rolls by the Left. They are doing their damndest to disenfranchise the military all across the country. What’s next?
