Out of control activist judiciary panel reports to State Bar, so they rubberstamped disbarment of Thomas
Tea Parties and conservatives are encouraged to show their support for former Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas tomorrow as he holds a press conference denouncing a panel’s decision to disbar him, another deputy attorney, and suspend a third deputy attorney. Thomas tried to root out corruption in Maricopa County and was fought every way by powerful, entrenched liberal politicians. When he tried to prosecute crooked County Supervisors like Mary Rose Wilcox and judges, they filed bar complaints against him, knowing that the liberal State Bar would pounce on them.
Thomas has been an activist conservative who stood up for the rule of law, including immigration laws. The panel that made the decision to disbar him was composed of two attorneys and one member of the public. The judge on the panel had ruled against Thomas in the past when he tried to prosecute corruption, so he was already biased against him, and should have recused himself but did not. Those attorneys report to the State Bar of Arizona. The State Bar of Arizona has made it REALLY CLEAR that they will go after anyone who dares defend Thomas. Ernie Calderon, a former State Bar president and Democrat, dared to stand up and issue an ethics opinion defending Thomas. In retaliation, the State Bar removed him from his position as the State Bar’s representative to the American Bar Association.
The press conference will be held tomorrow, Wednesday, April 11, at 10:30 a.m. at the plaza between the Orpheum and the Wells Fargo Building, a public area between Second and Third Avenues on Adams Street in downtown Phoenix. People can park in the Wells Fargo parking lot or along the streets or other parking garages. It shouldn’t take more than half an hour.
People should attend if they don’t want to see our state become as corrupt as Mexico, as we already have the illegal immigration to go with it. The far left is taking down conservatives in Arizona who dare to speak up one by one. First they took out Thomas, then they went after Russell Pearce and successfully took him down. Their next target is Sheriff Arpaio. Click here for their article, “After Attorney’s Disbarment, Latino Groups Want Arpaio Brought Down Next.”
This kangaroo court ignored all the evidence that has come out about how corrupt Maricopa County government is. Here is just some of the corruption that has taken place since the trial – but the panel refused to consider it:
–FDIC is suing lenders over a risky loan they gave to Supervisor Stapley. This is a loan that Thomas and Aubuchon tried to investigate Stapley for.
–County employees including County Manager David Smith played in pricey golf foursomes with vendors, in exchange were given lucrative Court Tower contracts. Thomas tried to investigate the Supervisors over the Court Tower.
–Judge who protected the County Supervisors, ruling against Thomas’s investigations, abruptly resigns in the middle of his term with no explanation
–Supervisor Stapley announces he is not going to run for reelection, and won’t even run for Congress – he knows he has no chance since all his corruption has come out
–Arizona Project 2012 Tea Party announces victory at stopping two Supervisors from running for reelection. They had made targeting the Supervisors their #1 priority this year due to all the corruption.
–County Manager David Smith abruptly resigns. Smith had filed the bar complaints against Thomas and his deputies and was the County Supervisors’ hatchetman.
–Liberal Arizona Republic columnist Laurie Roberts admits there must have been something to Thomas’s investigation of the Court Tower
–Engineer in charge of Court Tower project fired (he’s rumored to want to go public about it)
–Several county employees fired or suspended for accepting bribes from vendors on Court Tower
–County Supervisors & cronies lawsuits against Thomas & Arpaio thrown out
–Supervisors continue firing attorneys who attempt to represent Thomas
–Steve Chucri files to run for County Supervisor against Don Stapley since he realizes he will easily win
