Politifact Finds Tom Horne Has Been Making Mostly False Statements About Test Scores

The fact-finding organization Politifact is the silver bullet  Republican candidates fear because they routinely expose their false narratives after they are uttered.

Both the Hoffman Campaign and this

Fellow Blog Journalist AZ Blue Meanie and other columnists like the Washington Posts Paul Waldman and EJ Dionne have already offered their insights into what I am about to reflect on. Republicans over the last week or so have attempted in a very shallow and lying way to portray themselves as agents for the working class and the true advocates for law and order.

Washington Post Exposé Report On Arizona’s So-Called Election Integrity Unit (EIU)

In 2019, the GQP-controlled Arizona legislature created an Election Integrity Unit (EIU) in the office of Attorney General under Mark Brnovich aka "Nunchucks" (or is it numbnuts?), after falsely alleging election fraud in the 2018 election because Democrats won some statewide races in 2018.

Kyrsten Sinema And Mitch McConnell Mutual Admiration Society Is Disgusting (Updated)
