3 Arizona GOP mayors asked to quit
Edited on Sat Oct-28-06 03:27 PM by DesertRat
GOP leaders from Legislative District 4 on Friday called for the resignations of three West Valley mayors, all registered Republicans, because of their endorsement of Gov. Janet Napolitano, a Democrat.

Other current and former Republican officeholders also have crossed party lines with endorsements this election season in local and state contests as well as in an East Valley congressional race.

Friday's move by GOP activists underscores deep fissures in the Republican Party, political observers said. Conservative members hope to pressure those holding more moderate views to remain silent in deference to Len Munsil, Napolitano's Republican challenger.

"We're letting the public know that if you are a Republican, you should stand by your party or remain silent," said Lyle Tuttle, chairman of the Republican Party of District 4, which includes parts of Phoenix, Glendale, Peoria and Surprise. "It's fine if they want to vote for someone else, but for them to endorse a non-Republican is not following the party line."

8. Interesting
Edited on Sat Oct-28-06 04:07 PM by bluedogyellowdog
Maricopa County sheriff Joe Arpaio endorsed Napolitano 4 years ago. Notice they're only calling for the three mayor's heads and not Arpaio's? Could it be that the AZ Repukes are too wimpy to call for the head of their fellow Repuke Arpaio 'cause he's too powerful and popular?

Wimps. They should call for Arpaio's head first.

11. Arpaio...
...he might make them wear pink undies, and that would further the 'homosexual agenda'. Nope, they'll leave him alone. :)

The GOP gets more like the NSDAP every day.
