Attorney calls for Arizona Secretary of State Michele Reagan's impeachment

The attorney who unsuccessfully tried to cancel Tuesday’s election on Friday called for the immediate dismissal of the state’s elections director and asked the Legislature to impeach Secretary of State Michele Reagan.

Attorney Tom Ryan faulted Reagan for her office’s failure to send publicity pamphlets to an estimated 200,000 households in advance of Tuesday’s election, as required by law.

“She put her thumb on the scale and deprived hundreds of thousands of Arizona citizens on one of the most important issues of the day,” Ryan said, noting the pamphlet contains arguments for and against the two issues on Tuesday’s ballot. It also tells voters where to find their polling places.

However, he conceded his calls will go nowhere, but said they highlight his concern over the agenda Reagan's office has been pushing.

He cited her office's sponsorship of Senate Bill 1516, dubbed the "dark-money bill" because it minimizes the state's authority to compel political non-profit corporations to disclose their donors. It passed this spring with strong GOP support and Democratic opposition.
