I’ll keep this short, because writing (and reading) about these peckerheads can bring up breakfast. Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar (CD-9) gets most of the attention here and nationally—you know, the dentist who can read minds, the first objector to the 2020 certification on Jan. 6, the jerkwad who tweeted a violent attack on AOC, the man whose own siblings appear in ads for Gosar’s opponents, the dimwit who boycotted the Pope's speech at the Arizona Capitol (because he mentioned climate change) but found time to drive to Nevada to stand with Cliven Bundy’s criminals against the U.S. government. Inexplicably, this year Democrats did not even run an opponent against this POS.
Rep. Debbie Lesko in CD-8, another denier who did not face a challenger this year, entered the Arizona Legislature years ago as a mom concerned about education. I’d met her a few times back then, she was easy to talk to and not a nut. That’s all changed. Then there’s 5-term Congressman David Schweikert, another trumpian denier in CD-1. Happily, Schweikert is currently losing his House seat to 28-year-old, African American Jevin Hodge! Like many other Arizona candidates (and everyone hoping the Dems hold the House), he’s waiting for tonight’s Maricopa County drop.
Andy Biggs, in CD-5, which is northern Arizona, won his race this week against Javier Ramos (55-38). I don’t know how. I’d ask the voters who supported Biggs to name me even on thing he has done for them and other Arizonans, except inflame the goobers’ hate. Please tell me one piece of legislation that has its name on it that actually helps people. I’ll wait here.
Biggs, who entered politics after he won a $10,000,000 magazine sweepstakes in 1993, is good at spewing Freedom Caucus nonsense, and he was a central player in the Stop the Steal movement, even helping to plan Jan. 6, according to Ali Alexander. But when it comes to designing policy that serves people, bupkis. So here’s this week’s cup of Biggs’ ugliness:
For the non-twitterites: “We’re gonna show Nancy Pelosi the door very shortly. Don’t let it hit you on the backside, Nancy. She’s losing the gavel but finding the hammer. Too soon? Is that too soon?”
Do you know what’s too soon, Biggs? Your appearance anywhere. He was supposedly raised a good Arizona Mormon. Paul Pelosi is a husband, father, grandfather. What would Biggs’ parents and grandparents say about the U.S. “Representative” he has become? Representing little more than hate and violence.
