Lessons Learned From the Russell Pearce Recall Election?

Last Tuesday's historic election (1st time on over 100 years that a sitting Legislator was recalled in Arizona) might be a huge 'wake up call' to the Wackos!

Senator-Elect Jerry Lewis has already reached out to those in the Republican Party who did everything in their 'power' to defeat him.  

Let's take a look at some of the 'players' in this drama:

CONSTANTINE QUERARD - The 'Sleazy' Political Consultant who's Independent Expenditure Committee , "Arizona Deserves the Best", raised just over $25,000 (with $24,194 going into CQ's pocket) has long been rumored as the source of the Olivia Cortes signs that 'mysteriously' appeared in Mesa during the campaign with NO disclaimer.  CQ is already making excuses for the loss saying this in the AZ Capitol Times: 

“It was friendly fire. The enemy didn’t take out Pearce. He got shot in the back,” said Querard, who designated Flake, Adams and Crandall as enemies of Pearce.
Now this scumbag is going to run the campaign of Will Cardon for US Senate.  How much fun is this going to be?

SHANE WIKFORS & THE MORON ALLIANCE - You think after last year's "Beat Down" of J.D. Hayworth in 2010, that the 'Gang That Couldn't Shoot Straight' would have learned their lesson.  But of course, they didn't.  They spent the entire election 'pimpimg' for Russell Pearce.  Now that Wikfors is a 'Paid Stooge' for the AZ GOP, I guess he was just doing his job?  If you are a candidate running for election, I would stay clear of these idiots, their endorsement is the 'Kiss of Death'!

ARIZONA REPUBLICAN PARTY - Chairman Tom Morrissey funnelled $ 6,000 ($$$ they really don't have) to Rob Haney's IE for Russell Pearce.  This proves that the AZ GOP & the Maricopa County GOP have ZERO influence in any elections. 

Maybe if the Russell Pearce supporters had run an 'Honorable' campaign, the outcome might have been different.  But the fact they ran a 'Sham Candidate', LIED about their opponent, made it that much easier for the recall to happen.  Will they learn a lesson?  Only time will tell.
