Skip to comments.(AZ) U.S. Senate candidate Deakin facing foreclosure

U.S. Senate candidate Jimmie Lee Deakin, Jr. has more to worry about than siphoning enough votes from conservative U.S. Senate candidate J. D. Hayworth to return John McCain to the halls of power he so covets.
It seems Jimmie Lee is facing foreclosure, with his home just noticed July 29 for a trustee sale.*
During the debates, Deakin made much of the issue of congressional overspending. But how does he intend to effectively rein in government spending when hes unable to control his own? This news puts a definite damper on Deakins credibility.
Deakin claims he is a successful businessman, continually reminding audiences of his business acumen in making payroll even stating that hes had to make tough decisions that included laying off his own family members when the need arose. He has used the words Im squeaky clean, as he compared himself to others.
Now with the need to replace his current living arrangements, his campaign beneficiary John McCain should be able to provide some relief. After all, McCain has so many homes, he was unable to give an accurate accounting when asked during his failed 2008 presidential campaign. Jimmie and Adonia should be able to count on the generosity of friends.
After all, Blanche DuBois was always able to rely on the kindness of strangers.
* Documentation regarding the trustee sale can be found on the pages of the law firm, Tiffany & Bosco:

Jim Deakin should drop out of the race, endorse the Tea Party favorite, JD Hayworth, and go back to work solving his personal problems. I don't think this should prevent Deakin's future political endeavors, but the timing of this is awful and and puts a cloud over Deakin's continued candidacy.
This is amazing news. I thought he was this big business executive who was going to fix all the finanacial problems in Washington. Ah well, I guess it’s just JD and McCain. The illegal lobby is already planning on McCain getting back in and then come back over onto their side.
Perhaps Deakin was just another McCain style vote splitter plant ala Thompson or Huckabee.
Actually, I always thought Huckabee was the vote splitter taking conservative Christian votes away from Fred Thompson.
But yes, Deakin is actively trying to have McCain re-elected by attacking Hayworth and not attacking McCain.
“Perhaps Deakin was just another McCain style vote splitter plant ala Thompson or Huckabee.”
Huckabee yes, Thompson no (imho).
Seems like a pattern’s emerged here, doesn’t it? I said when I saw their two debates that Deakin’s a spoiler like Huckabee was.
Well, maybe if enough people know the situation with Deakin, they won’t waste a vote on him.
“Actually, I always thought Huckabee was the vote splitter taking conservative Christian votes away from Fred Thompson.”
No, no - if you recall, quite awhile after FT dropped out, it was down to three. And then, once Romney dropped out, so did Huckabee - almost immediately. THAT was why he was hanging in - to drive Mitt out. Fred (unfortunately) was not a serious contender.
I like Mike superficially, but I can’t forgive him for selling his soul - hypocrite, big-time.
Also notice lately, since he’s undoubtedly going to run again in ‘12, he’ll have to go on a massive crash diet :-))
if a connection to McCain or a mccain cronie can be made perhaps it will do some damage to mccain.
Obviously, Deakin isn’t being funded by McCain or his house wouldn’t be foreclosed on, but he is a problem.
For the Michigan governor’s race, we have three conservatives seeking the GOP nomination. My greatest fear is that the conservatives will split the vote and the RINO (Snyder) will win with 25% of the vote.
As we speak, there are investigations going on about Deakins connections to McCain. It’s pretty crazy. I’ll post when I know more. Who would be surprised if we found out that McCain brought him in...I wouldn’t.
“Who would be surprised if we found out that McCain brought him in...I wouldnt.”
I don’t know if McCain brought in Deakin. But there is no rational reason why Deakin is still in. So Deakin is either mentally unstable or there is something for him to gain after the election is over. The other possibility is that Deakin is just plain stupid and is being used by McCain. And of course, it could just be all 3 reasons.
