Brothers and sisters, please help us on Sat. if you can. We need to ask,plead and demand that our Az. Democratic party leadership stop pandering to the right on immigration while families are suffering greatly and...we need to tell them to stop suppressing bonafide legally filed democratic candidates such as Winona Baldenegro and John Rowan ! I have filed a legal complaint with the Elections dept. of Az and the Attny Gen. in order to save our democratic party before even more people continue to flee its republican lite policies ! Below, the complaint is listed:
5-24-12 Hello, I am a registered voter (registered in the democratic party) of Arizona. I am writing to file a complaint to the Arizona Secretary of State Elections division due to my opinion that the legally filed democratic candidates: Maricopa County sheriff candidate John Rowan, C.D. 1 democratic candidate for congress Winona Baldenegro and other democratic candidates to be named in the near future are being suppressed by some members of the Arizona democratic party executive committee and a member of the Maricopa County Democratic party committee.
This is occurring because the legally filed democratic candidates are or have either been restricted from voter access supplied by the party or because (legislative district #16) democratic chairs such as the aforementioned have been forbade from letting democratic candidates speak before the primary at party functions simply because they are not favored by some members of the Arizona Democratic Executive Committee. In addition, these democratic legislative district chairs have had their voter access denied by the aforementioned democratic elite party officials.
As part of the growing evidence of unfair and possible illegal arbitrary tactics being used by high up members of the Arizona democratic party , who use their officially elected positions and party apparatus to suppress legally filed democratic candidates we submit this recent talk show interview from last week in which the executive director of the Arizona democratic party, Luis Heredia stated in his own words that these accusations are not totally false: The Lou Show # 120 5-20-12 http://theloushow.com/
In conclusion, I ask that these violations of ethical conducting of fair elections be investigated because I love the democratic process and want to save my beloved democratic party from self destruction as more and more people lose confidence in it just because of shenanigans such as these being conducted by official democratic party leaders in the executives and Maricopa and Arizona divisions of the democratic party. If we wanted corrupt conventions and methods for selecting and nominating candidates we would throw out the existing federal and Arizona election laws which were written to ensure fairness of the picking of candidates and go back to the 19th century where candidates were picked behind closed doors in smoke filled rooms ! Unfortunately, that now seems to be the case with some leadership in the Arizona Democratic party.
We have repeatedly asked the leadership in the Arizona democratic party to correct these injustices against my brother and sister legally filed democratic candidates but to no avail and now…find no other option but to file a written complaint with the Arizona Secretary of State to investigate these abuses and possible violations of campaign election law. Further…we feel that possible federal violations of the law have occurred. Please, do not hesitate to contact me as I will do my best to help restore fairness to my beloved democratic party.
