Women-led movement calls for investigation on Arizona Sen. Crandall for making threats
Phoenix, AZ — The Tequila Party Movement (female-led grassroots organization) is requesting an ethics investigation of Arizona Senator Rich Crandall for making threats to State Represenative Brenda Barton after Crandall left an angry phone message with her threatening to kill her bills in the future.
Last week Sen. Crandall stated:
This same Arizona Republican Senator is the same lawmaker who sponsored SB 1061 which waives a mandate that kindergarten through eighth grade public school districts participate in the National School Lunch Program, a federal program that provides free and reduced-price lunches to children through cash subsidies. SB1061 would have left school children hungry when many rely on schools to give them at least one good nutritional meal of the day.
Education and children are at risk here.
We should not support any lawmakers who have made threats to women and/or other officials that affects official business relating to many Arizona taxpayers and their children.
It is not right to punish education and an investigation is urgent for the sake of the children.
