Posted on 04/28/2013 10:15:40 AM PDT by jongaltsr

I would like to start (IMMEDIATELY) the process to dispose of Rhino John McFrain McCain. I need to know the documents necessary to start that process (IMMEDIATELY - not tomorrow but TODAY).

I need to know who to start the process with, Documents necessary and anyone who would be able to start a web site just to get signatures and get the ball rolling.

JonGaltSr (Freeper since 1995 (or manybe it was 1996).

Thanks

They’ve tried a couple time in AZ to recall the old fool, never succeeded. The voters still believe his lies.

Palin can sit down and stay out of this one. McCain is out of control.

Recall the guy now, and this will leave long enough to vote a real leader to replace him.

It is a wast of time. The effort is better used on other things.

We tried that once, and failed, I have no intrest in trying again. If he were to be recalled, who would run against him that could win?

He put up black hypnotic signs last time and had the local press smear J.D. Hayworth. Even Freepers were cutting Hayworth down. The Democrats only run token opposition because McCain is one of them. The old lizard is in for as long as he wants. Hate to tell you.

I don’t think a states voters can recall a U. S. Senator once elected. They must wait for the next election.

Senators and Representatives cannot be recalled. There is no Constitutional process. The only recourse is to stop re-electing them.

A recall of a US Senator is not constitutional. You will have to wait until 2016.

Yup! It wasn't just the Arizona voters who got Juan reelected. A lot here were regurgitating the same crap the state controlled "media" was spewing about Hayworth. I voted for J.D. in the primary. Voted "None of the Above" in the general. McCain still has the senior vote here in Arizona. J.D. got clobbered from both sides.

Like others have said, there is little chance of any recall succeeding against McVain, but if you need an exercise in futility, you would need to start with a recall petition. Each state requires a certain percentage of registered voters to sign the petition in order for it to be considered for placement on either the next election ballot or on a special election ballot.

Once the signatures are verified by the AZ SOS, I’m not sure what the next step is in getting the measure on the ballot. I don’t know if it is automatically added to the next ballot or if there is an additional step that must be completed prior to getting it on the ballot.

However, once it has been successfully added to the ballot, you will just have to wait until the next election before your measure to recall him goes down in defeat.

Good luck!

Yeah, and the old fool went to the right of Duncan Hunter on immigration during that election and PROMISED to secure the border and stop pushing amnesty. They believed the lies.

Been there, done that, I still have campaign buttons. It's not practical because:

1) Most of the AZ voters are Dem now and they like him, as you would expect. They've picketed signature collection events. I've had little old men drive up in their Cadillacs and spit at me. "How dare I try to recall a war hero?"
2) The Secretary of State, while GOP, will not be cooperative and will use every technicality in the book to dismiss signatures. Had this problem before by a petty, little-known SoS named Janet Brewer (And people wonder why I can't stand her).
3) He doesn't have to leave office if he doesn't want to. It's purely voluntary on his part if he resigns. 17th Amendment doesn't provide for a recall. Can you picture McQueeg leaving office voluntarily? I didn't think so.

For the last McQueeg recall attempt, the threshold was well north of 200,000.

Possibly. A clever lawyer might note that Senators do represent the State, and do have to reside in the state, therefore, that puts them ‘in’ the state as the Arizona constitution says.....Specious? Probably, but that is how lawyers might take it up.

Last time around I think it helped McCain a lot that Sarah Palin was campaigning with him and against JD Hayworth. Palin endorsed McCain for his Senate seat and stumped the state with him. Probably helped kill off any chance Hayworth had. I think Palin is just showing loyalty here, she probably feels like she owes McCain.

Actually, Palin alone has the ability to ruin McCain. She paid her dues to him. Now if she stood up and denounced McCain for his 2nd amendment and immigration stances, she may be able to show her power.

Not enough people care. We had the chance to toss him and conservatives went full metal liberal, abandoned principles and voted for the ‘lesser evil’ as we were told. And they “WON”.

As with McCain, so too Romney. I hope they choke on it. Many of us tried warning America where that road leads. We were shouted down.

Elections have consequences and principles matter.

I lived in Arizona for many years before retiring to Florida a couple of years ago. I hadn’t voted for McPain for several election cycles before I left. But now he is really getting out of control and should have taken the opportunity back in 2004 to become DemoRAT when he was thinking about it. Because he is nothing more than a DemoRAT in a RINO disguise. My friends in Arizona say that the problem is not only dislodging a long-term senator to get him out of office but that his vacant seat is vulnerable to the DemoRATS winning the vacated spot. He made a terrible presidential candidate for the GOP in 2008 and he’s looks even worse now kissing ass and groveling at the DemoRATS feet on this immigration bill. I think he is trying to make himself look relevant at a time when his influence is waning. He long due to be put out to pasture and get some new blood in there to replace him. He’s a classic example of these politicians that get elected and then get so enamored with the job, the power and the perks and benefits, that they just keep hanging on to enrich themselves and to hell with what’s right for the country as a whole. He needs to go home to Sedona and fish or something.

Why not put all your effort into just not getting him re-elected? It would probably take until the next election to get anything done anyway, even if it is possible.

Thank God McCain wasn’t elected president. I knew then that there is something SERIOUSLY wrong with him. Bad mental problems- maybe because of Vietnam, maybe because of dementia-either way he’s a serious brain-burn case. If being a POW scrambled his brains permanently, that’s too bad; but sympathy shouldn’t mean suffering a Senator like that!
All I can think is that it was the senior dementia patients who retire to Arizona who are responsible for his Senate seat. Recall the crazy SOB before it’s too late!
My apologies to sane Arizonans.

I don't think that it makes a difference what Arizona's constitution says. I fully admit I do not know but believe congress would have to expel him.

Is anyone aware of a precedent where a state did recall its U.S. Senator and the senator obeyed?

A United States Senator cannot be recalled. Read your handy dandy copy of the United States Constitution - I assume you have one. Article One, Section Three states that the term for a senator shall be six years. Section Five gives the Senate and House of Representatives the power to discipline their members, and to expel them by a 2/3 vote. There are no provisions for anyone else to remove a Senator or to subvert the six year term to which he has been elected. Check the link NonValueAdded provided in Post #20.

Your time is better spent by trying to find a candidate who can beat McCain in the next election.

There's no procedure in the US Constitution, but state law may allow for a recall. A recall of Bob Menendez was ruled constitutional by New Jersey courts recently. Ehow.com has an article here about how to go about organizing a recall.

It's never happened though, either for US Senator or Representatives. Here's an article from the Heritage Foundation arguing that such recalls are unconstitutional.

There have already been attempts to recall McCain. If this one gets any further than the others it may tie up the courts until the Senator is out of Congress one way or another.

Just curious here...How does the 17th amendment modify the interpretation of the idea of recalling a Senator, since they are now elected by direct popular vote instead of by the State legislature.

I don’t see how directly electing him vs. having a state legislature elect him would change the basic fact that the U.S. Senator position is defined by the U.S. Constitution and that document controls his term of service and means of expulsion. If the U.S. Constitution states that the term for a Senator SHALL be six years, how can any state body decide that it shall be anything less?
