“The Good People of Arizona…”


A potential candidate in the recall election against state Sen. Russell Pearce was struck in the groin with a padlock thrown from a pickup while he was out jogging, Mesa police said.

Connected? I don’t know. Is there some rash of people throwing padlocks at random joggers in Mesa?

Pearce has a record of stirring up his supporters, so if this incident ends up being connected to the recall, I would be three shades less than surprised.

Of course, the Republic and the conservative blogs will blame Clarence Dupnik.

    Dupnik may not, but Pearce does.
