In case you missed it, Arizona Daily Star’s Joe Ferguson just exposed further evidence of the Democratic civil war raging in Arizona – Tucson Democrats are on the attack, and they’re going after Phoenix-resident and carpetbagger Ann Kirkpatrick.
From Arizona Daily Star:
A legal challenge filed Monday morning doubles down on complaints from local Democrats that Kirkpatrick is a political opportunist who moved to Tucson last year to challenge a politically vulnerable Rep. Martha McSally.
The 13-page filing seeks to kick Kirkpatrick off of the ballot for Congressional District 2, arguing that she lied on her nominating petitions by listing two Tucson addresses when in the fact she doesn’t live in Southern Arizona.
The claim offers a detailed narrative backed up with a detailed paper trail that shows Kirkpatrick and her husband, Roger Curley, actually live in Phoenix near the law offices where Curley works.
“It can’t get much worse for Ann Kirkpatrick, getting called out by her own party base for her blatant carpetbagging. Kirkpatrick can’t even make up her mind where her pretend address is, listing two separate addresses in Tucson. Defrauding and misleading Arizonans shows how low Kirkpatrick will go to win, deepening the rift in the Democratic Party. Nothing like another new intra-party fight for Democrats to wage in the middle of an election year." – RNC Spokesperson Renae Eze
