  1. Terrible. A lunatic like Franks followed, by corporate slave. Those 90,000 voters who think Lesko cares one iota about you are in fantasy land. Lesko cares only about her corporate masters at ALEC, and Scamway, and how to please them. People in Peoria are smarter than this. Sun City, who knows? Lesko will fit right in with Biggs and Gosar, two other lunatics.

  2. Lesko is a fine choice to follow in the footsteps of horny old Trent Franks, and will blend in effortlessly with the other crackpot Arizona reps like Paul Gosar.

    Good to see so many Trump voters have caught on to the con.
