Never fear Democrats, Mainstream Independents, and Reality-Based- Like-Minded Republicans.

Karrin Taylor Robson is just as corrupt, anal, and beholden to the Trumpist Base as Kari Lake and the other lesser-known Republican Gubernatorial Candidates.

Recent revelations from AZ Family, CBS, and AZ Mirror have shown that Ms. Robson has used her own personal jet for campaign appearances, including apparently an eleven-minute flight from Scottsdale to Glendale to meet with former Vice President Mike Pence.

According to AZ Family and a press release by the Arizona Democratic Party, the use of the jet for campaign purposes is against Arizona State Law:

“ARS 16-913 which reads, “A candidate committee may accept contributions only from an individual, a partnership, a candidate committee, a political action committee or a political party.”  Private jet joy rides count as a contribution because it’s for campaign travel.”

Ms. Robson’s campaign may have compounded the problem by not reporting all the campaign travel she undertook in the private jet owned by her husband’s Nevada-based aircraft company.

Arizona Secretary of State and Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate Katie Hobbs quickly condemned Ms. Robson’s apparently corrupt rich and shameless travel itinerary, posting on social media:

Later, in response to a request for comment from Blog for Arizona, Secretary Hobbs relayed:

“Karrin Taylor Robson’s use of her private jet for campaign events not only violates campaign finance laws but also shows how severely out of touch she is with everyday Arizonans. I’m the only non-millionaire in this race, and my husband and I have been through financial ups and downs, so I personally understand what Arizonans are struggling with right now because I live it too. That’s why I’ve put forth a comprehensive plan to provide relief to working families and to crack down on corporate price gougers to save Arizonans money amid skyrocketing inflation. We need leaders who both understand what working families are going through and can deliver immediate solutions for them. Robson is neither one of those.”

Arizona Democratic Party spokesperson Josselyn Berry added:

While Arizona families are struggling to make ends meet and pay bills, Karrin Taylor Robson has been jet-setting around the state on a lavish private jet that costs millions of dollars. Not only that, she was hiding this for months and failing to report it as required by law. All this points to how Taylor Robson is out of touch and untrustworthy. It’s clear that uber-wealthy Taylor Robson has no idea what everyday Arizonans need.”

Robson steps into it by not admitting on CNN that Joe Biden is the legitimate President of the United States.

Yesterday, Ms. Robson stepped into it again during an interview with Brianna Keilar yesterday (July 25, 2022,) on CNN when she could not take the plunge and admit, after numerous prodding by Keilar, that Joe Biden is the legitimate President of the United States.

After unbelievable evasions and going halfway in her responses, Ms. Robson claimed there are still “investigations ongoing” (where other than the January 6 Committee and possibly the Justice Department looking into whether there were bad acts committed by Kelli Ward, Andy Biggs, Paul Gosar, and the false slate of Arizona electors) and  she wanted “to move forward to elect a Republican Governor.” 

When asked by Keilar if Joe Biden is the legitimate President of the United States, Robson attempted to first come to an answer that would appeal to both the Trumpist Base and the not-so-extreme wing of the Republican Party by continually saying “We have the wrong guy in the White House…I believe the wrong President is in the White House.”

When Keilar asked if Biden was either wrongly or rightfully elected or just the wrong guy for the job, Robson  went full Trumpist, promoting the Big Lie on the 2020 election and stating:

“The 2020 election at a minimum was not fair…We had the media suppressing news. I don’t need to say anything other than Hunter Biden (even if he is guilty of any wrongdoing, how do his actions compare to the treason Trump and his sycophants committed.) We had big tech silencing conservative voices. We had judges (including Trump-appointed ones she did not mention) across this country changing the rules in the days and weeks and the months leading up to the election because of COVID and the chaos that surrounded COVID. At a minimum, it wasn’t fair. We also had Mark Zuckerberg spending nearly half a billion dollars to increase voter turnout in heavily Democratic areas across this country including Arizona (and what is wrong with more people turning out to vote.) All those things together conspired to have 78 percent of the Republicans in Arizona thinking (thanks mostly to people like Donald Trump and Karrin Robson) something was wrong with the election…”

After going on a spiel about Joe Biden signing executive orders to increase voter registration and turnout in Democratic-leaning areas, otherwise known as groups impacted by Supreme Court rulings gutting provisions of the Voting Rights Act, Keilar tried one last time and asked whether Robson accepted the outcome of the 2020 election. The Arizona Republican candidate said, “We have the wrong guy in the White House. That is all I am going to say on that. That’s why I’m running for Governor. Because I don’t like who’s in the White House and Arizona needs to stay in Republican hands so Arizona can kick him out of the White House in 2024.”

Again responding to a request for comment from Blog for Arizona, Ms. Hobbs offered:

“Just like her leading opponent Kari Lake, Karrin Taylor Robson’s dangerous allegiance to extreme conspiracy theories and obsession with rewriting an election that happened almost two years ago means neither of them can be trusted to uphold the rule of law or the will of the voters. As governor, I will always defend Arizonans’ freedom to choose their own leaders and uphold my oath to the Constitution.”

It sounds like Ms. Robson would be receptive to a Republican Governor and Republican-controlled Arizona Legislature creating electoral laws to circumvent the popular vote of Arizona citizens if Biden wins the Grand Canyon state again in 2024. 

Friends of Democracy: Be afraid about this candidate or any other Arizona Republican getting their party’s gubernatorial nomination. They would tear apart the State Constitution and all voting rights and access for people that could harm them if given power. 

The November 8, 2022  election is 105 days away.

Do not elect Karrin Robson or any other Anti-Democracy candidate for any office on the ballot.

The soul of the state and the country is at stake.
