A prominent Phoenix tea party leader who believes Muslims cannot be trusted to be loyal to the United States and should not be working for the federal government is incensed with U.S. Sen. John McCains defense of a top State Department official and is eying a recall drive against Arizonas senior senator.
Wes Harris, the founder and chairman of the Original North Phoenix Tea Party, said he plans to take out a recall petition against McCain. While Harris has many problems with McCain, a mass email he sent out focused solely on the senators recent defense of Huma Abedin, a top aide to U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Harris accused Abedin of having ties to an Islamic extremist group, and he objected to the fact that a Muslim was working for the State Department in the first place.
Don’t know where i got the “shot some bad guys down “ impression, but I gather all he did (after a pretty sloppy and expensive early flying career) was to drive tactical high speed bombers (A4s) during VN.
It appears his only real claim to fame was the Hanoi Hilton experience, and while I have deep sympathy for the horrific experiences while he was held by the Cong, I think he milked it WAY beyond it’s inherent value to the US Citizenry.
His latest rant about Michelle Bachman shows just how cowardly he has become, joining the PC crowd instead of calling spades what they are.
But then they used the same tar and feathers routine to destroy McCarthy as well. (sigh........)
Did the law regarding recall change ?
Because in 2001, we Arizonans had collected the lion's share of recall petitions against McAmNasty....but then 911 happened, and the recall drive was discontinued.
They collected petitions to recall my congressman a few years back too. When they threw a tantrum about the secretary of state refusing to accept them, the judge told them that collecting signatures was fine but that didn’t make recall a legal option.
