I first got wind of this earlier this week (because I talk to the wind, the wind cannot hear…) when someone pointed out to me that la Cervecera’s name had been scrubbed from Gabriela Saucedo Mercer’s website.
I held off on writing about it to give Nick Martin a chance to do a story over at Talking Points Memo. You can thank me later, Nick.
Brewer was slotted to do a fundraiser for Mercer today, but Brewer was under pressure after Mercer’s intemperate and intolerant statements about Arabs and Muslims.
It must be noted that Brewer did not have any comment on what Mercer said, and is still a supporter of Mercer’s. Also keep in mind that Mercer has earned the financial support of Augusta Resources, Rosemont Copper and Raytheon. I get why these guys aren’t the biggest fans of Raúl Grijalva, but it boggles the mind why they’d endorse her brand of wingnuttery. I’d understand if they want to back a winner, but she’s a sure loser. It really makes one wonder about their own views.
