Why is there a PAC against the first possible Native American Congresswoman via Wenona Benally Baldenegro?by Dee Dee Garcia Blase on Aug. 10, 2012, under 2012 Arizona Elections, 2012 Congressional Races
I just received some information from the Lou Show with regard to a PAC that is being set up in favor of Ann Kirkpatrick and against the first possible Native American Congresswoman via Wenona Benally Baldenegro.
I thought Manifest Destiny was a thing of the past.
More importantly, we have learned that the the Paul Penzone campaign employs DREAMers even though he has not taken a pro DREAM Act stance. Why was the Democratic Sheriff Candidate John Rowan able to take a stand on being in support of the DREAM Act, but Paul Penzone has not? Why is Stacy Pearson — the Communications Director for the Penzone campaign have her fingerprints all over this Super PAC that can be seen here on this AZ Central news site. Does Stacy support Kyrsten Sinema who got tough on immigration via SB 1225?
This is outrageous!
From SAL BALDENEGRO:
1. More information has come out about the Super PAC that is trying to take Wenona out. The spokesperson for the Super PAC is Stacy Pearson, who is also Paul Penzone’s Communication Director! Penzone is a Democratic candidate for Sheriff in Maricopa County, and if you care anything about his campaign, I strongly urge you to write and call his staff, and tell them to BACK OFF of Wenona, and to stop their sabotage of Native American and Latino candidates.
2. More information has come out about the corporate Super PAC that Kirkpatrick has enlisted to try to take out Wenona in the primary election. A Phoenix-based lobbying firm called GovGroupAZ is the organization behind this Super PAC. It turns out that one of GovGroupAZ’s major lobbying clients is the mining corporation ASARCO. Wenona has been endorsed by the United Steelworkers of America, the largest labor union in CD1, and also the union that represents the ASARCO workers, in Arizona. ASARCO has a long record of human rights abuses and environmental contamination, so it is no surprise that Wenona’s commitment to protecting workers’ rights and environmental responsibility is not popular with them, and is the reason why they are trying to take her out!http://www.azsos.gov/scripts/Lobbyist_Search.dll/ZoomLOB?LOB_ID=3608978
