Letter to the Editor: Truth Matters, Words Matter

These days we're witnessing the unraveling of the propaganda campaign within Fox News, and the propaganda spewed by Arizona's former Attorney General Mark Brnovich.

A Big Lie propaganda campaign that's brought us to an unprecedented level of distrust in our voting system. A campaign that victimized all of us!

The distrust that we've heard expressed within this Board of Supervisors venue. Calls for purging our voter registration rolls, replacing vote tabulating systems, and denouncing vote by mail. Distrust sowed by everyday citizens and by leaders of the challenged Grand Old Party.

Thankfully, a majority of Democrats, Independents, and principled Republicans outside of Pinal County voted their belief in our system and elected into office believers in and practitioners of truth-telling.

Truth tellers like our new Attorney General Kris Mayes who a few days ago released a previously undisclosed AG investigation report that investigators "did not uncover any criminality or fraud" in the 2020 election.

Nonetheless, despite that investigation's conclusion, Big Lie advocates within the GOP-controlled Legislature are pushing so-called election reforms on the unsubstantiated premise of "serious vulnerabilities" involving signature verification and transportation of ballots from drop box locations.

On the national scene, Fox News Executive Chairman Rupert Murdoch recently disclosed courtroom testimony that he had seen little evidence of widespread voter fraud as claimed by Donald Trump, whose claims Murdoch characterized as "bullshit and damaging." Furthermore, Murdoch testified that Fox News hosts Sean Hannity, Lou Dobbs, and Maria Bartiromo not only provided an outlet for baseless claims of voter fraud but that they also endorsed those untruthful claims.

Mr. Chairman, I agree with Attorney General Mayes, that the people of Arizona had a right to know before the 2022 election that the Big Lie fraud claims were baseless; and that the AG's office and all of us, including all Pinal County elected officials have a solemn duty to acknowledge those lies as we begin a new election season.

Optimist that I am, I challenge all County officials to amplify the AG investigation's findings among our county's voters as we seek to re-establish trust in Pinal County's elections.

To do less is to keep the Big Lie alive.

You Democrats are pathetic. Got to keep this so called big lie going while the Democrat leadership destroys our country. Seems desperation is all you have because there is no way your life is better under Biden and now the fake leadership here in Arizona. We MAGA supporters are sitting here quietly like we did with Obama's disaster knowing that you are the ones that have lied and stolen our country and the positive steps we had taken. Take a look at the newly released videos from January 6. Does not show anything close to the lies we were fed. Reality is coming and I hope you are prepared.
