Here is a link to an exchange that is very informative about this issue:

Watch the interview with Huckelberry and Farley.  This story is a lot about protecting Huckelberry and, unfortunately, it’s a pretty loose example of the subject of money and politics, which should be treated seriously.  Huckelberry’s future is threatened by Bronson being unseated. 

Hate to say it, but the more substantive event to write about is the law suit by citizens against Pima County to enforce specific existing election laws before the general election:

Sometimes, what is omitted reveals more than what is reported.

Ah, yes.  You know what?  If I missed it chances are others may have as well.  That Roundtable session is so telling and relevant that it might as well be embedded in the body of the post.

This really feels like a concerted effort provide cover for Huckelberry (who’s longstanding reign is threatened by unseating Bronson).  I’d like to see what they are privately polling in Bronson’s district, because they don’t normally get dirty unless they are in trouble.  The Democratic party machine benefits as much from corruption as the more favored Republican land developers.  That’s why they pulled out of the lawsuit for prospective relief in rigged elections (which won an appellate decision).

The lawsuit filed two days ago is most definitely a newsworthy item that includes various candidates and Paul HIlts, the Pima County Democratic Party’s Election Integrity Chair.  It refers to specific state laws broken by the Pima Elections Division and is a bi-partisan effort to enforce the existing laws on behalf of election transparency before this upcoming general election.

Let me know if I can help you with contacts for the folks involved to interview or any supporting documents and information.

All local news outlets have reported nothing on this so far.

Thanks,

J.T.  Waldron
