READER: So I should tell my Goldwater- and Reagan-loving grandfather - who says he won't vote for this guy or Lake or any other election denying conspiracy pusher - that they think he's a Marxist? ME: That about sums it up. https://azcentral.com/story/opinion/op-ed/ej-montini/2022/09/19/mark-finchem-denies-hating-jews-being-more-antisemitic/10423726002/… via @azcentral

GOP Secretary of State candidate Mark Finchem denies hating Jews by being more antisemitic
The Jewish Community Relations Council called out Mark Finchem for his antisemitism. But Finchem denied it and doubled down on his antisemitism.

Last week, as part of a column about a Finchem’s pal and conspiracy cohort, Kari Lake, the Republican candidate for governor, I noted Finchem’s latest antisemitic trope.

He published a tweet reading, “Democrat politicians on the ballot in Arizona are liars and deceivers. They want total control over you and our state. Their loyalty is to George Soros and Mike Bloomberg. They want Arizona to be like California. Do not be deceived.”

I might have pointed out another antisemitic tweet from the same day, in which Finchem wrote, “People say ‘oh don’t talk about Trump’ for the general election. I am a Trump supporter. I am endorsed by Trump. But I am also honest. Democrats & Independents – I will protect your vote. It is the guy who is funded by Soros you should worry about. He will sell you out.”

In response, the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Phoenix, tweeted, “@RealMarkFinchem: your reliance on #antisemitic tropes to spearhead your campaign is an embarrassment to the majority of #Arizona residents.”

6. If he is an insurrectionist, he has disqualified himself for office.

The Arizona Secretary of State takes an oath to support and defend the U.S. Constitution:

Couy Griffin was removed from office and barred from office, based on the disqualification clause of the 14th Amendment: https://www.citizensforethics.org/news/press-releases/judge-removes-couy-griffin-from-office-for-engaging-in-the-january-6-insurrection/

Judgment, outlining what it means to be a part of an insurrection:

4. Does he have jaundice? or hemochromatosis?

He looks very unhealthy. Maybe he wears orange-y makeup like TFG.
