Arizona Takes Pole Position in Crazee State Race

The terrible sand people of the terrible sand kingdom of Arizonastan.

The terrible sand people of the terrible sand kingdom of Arizonastan have a terrible candidate running for the Secretary of State, according to Vice:

This QAnon-Loving ‘Stop the Steal’ Leader Wants to Be Arizona’s Next Secretary of State

As a mob of pro-Trump rioters overran the U.S. Capitol on January 6, Arizona State Rep. Mark Finchem took a photo of the crowd.

“What happens when the People feel they have been ignored, and Congress refuses to acknowledge rampant fraud. #stopthesteal,” he tweeted, along with a picture of pro-Trump rioters waving flags on the Capitol steps after breaching the initial security perimeter.

Now, he wants to be his state’s top election official.

Finchem has launched a campaign to be Arizona’s next secretary of state, a powerful position that oversees the election system of one of the nation’s most important swing states. And he’s running on a “secure elections” platform rooted in conspiracy-mongering.

OK, so he’s a Q-Spiracist, and insurrection enthusiast who attended the Stupid Coup. What else ya got, Finchem?

Finchem won a Tucson-area legislative seat in 2014 and has long been viewed gadfly by many of his colleagues; before the election, he was best known for his failed attempts to end capital gains taxes on gold coins, which drew praise from Ron Paul.

Oh, great, he’s a Goldbug and a fake Libertarian. And the article goes on from there with Finchem intersections with all the usual suspects in the Industrial Conservative Complex, from Steve Bannon to The Gateway Pundit and even special appearances from Hair Füror hisself.

It’s Arizona, so, you know, it’s a dry hate.

    Why don’t they just go for broke and run the real, genuine Q Shaman? Well, once he gets out of the hoosegow…

    Much like Jim Wright over at Stonekettle Station likes to say, about Matt Gaetz, “He’s just the most perfect rep for this area, because so many of his constituents are just about as loony as he is; he fits right in, and a lot of them even admire him,” (Not a direct quote,) I think BDR can attest to the fact that the man has a better-than-average of winning.

    • The SoS is a hotly contested race, as it’s also the successor to the Gov if they die or get snapped up by the federal administration like they did the last Democratic Governor we had, Janet Napolitano. That’s how we got Jan ‘Headless Bodies in the Desert’ Brewer for gov. Thanks, Obama!

      So Finchem will have to go through a much tougher campaign than his house district, just to get on the ballot, and depending on how much the GQP continues shooting itself in the dick with a tommy gun imploding in popularity, if he DOES, the Dem might win.

      (If Good Ol’ Handsome Joe Biden keeps up doing nice things for the American people in ways they recognize, the traditional mid-term shellacking may not happen)

      Rumors have it that Katie Hobbs (our current D SoS) is considering a run for the top job in 2022, when Il Deuce is term-limited out. (rumours have it that Il Deuce hisself is considering a run for Senate (Mark Gifford’s seat, formerly held by Martha McSally) when we finally have a full 6-year term election for that seat. Please Clap. the base hates him for not being crazy enough, and the rest of us hate him because, well, he’s a GQP. )

  3. Yeah Finchem is a nutcase, and he’s currently the subject of a recall effort and ethics investigations in House because he’s just an asshole, too.

    Good ol Gov Il Deuce is all proud of the corporate money he’s gotten out of the elections….money given to the counties to help run their elections.

    But the governor, in signing the measure, apparently rejected claims by some Republicans that the $6 million that nine Arizona counties got from the Center for Tech and Civic Life to help fund additional costs to run the election during the COVID-19 pandemic was really a secret effort to turn out more Democrats.

    In fact, Ducey declined to question the motives.

    He didn’t HAVE to mention that or question the motives. Those claims were *the only reason this bill was passed. He signed it because he thinks it’s wrong for private donations to help run donations, for ‘reasons’.
