Its surprising how much you can accomplish if you don't care who gets the credit
[Editor: DARN, we get to say "we told you so" again and not happy about it. We said in 2014 that Brnovich is a GOP liberal and Tom Horn, despite his many personal flaws at least stood up for we the people in his office.]
From Judicial Watch
Judicial Watch announced today that it and former Arizona State Senator Russell Pearce filed a lawsuit to obtain records of communications between Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich’s office, the ACLU and other groups challenging Arizona immigration enforcement law S.B. 1070. The lawsuit was filed in Maricopa County Superior Court (Judicial Watch and Russell Pearce v. Office of Attorney General Mark Brnovich (No. CV2016-016945).
Judicial Watch and Senator Pearce’s lawsuit was filed on November 9, 2016, after the Attorney General’s office failed to respond to a request for records under Arizona’s Public Records Law, according to a news release from Judicial Watch. The request sought records of communications between the Attorney General’s Office, the ACLU and other illegal alien advocacy groups that resulted in a settlement of a lawsuit challenging S.B. 1070. The settlement was formalized in an agreement called a “Joint Case Disposition.” The September 20, 2016, request sought records concerning:
Communications, correspondence, and contacts between the Arizona Attorney General’s Office and counsel for plaintiffs in Valle del Sol, et al. v. Whiting, et al., Case No. CV-10-1061-PHX-SRB (D. Ariz.) concerning or relating to the Joint Case Disposition submitted to the court on September 15, 2016. Such records include, but are not limited to, records of discussions resulting in the agreement to submit to the court the Joint Case Disposition.
Under Arizona law the Attorney General’s office was required to respond “promptly” to the records request. After nearly two months, the Attorney General has failed to comply.
The request seeks to shed light on the unusual settlement of the SB 1070 case, including an agreement that the Attorney General would issue an “informal opinion” setting forth his “interpretation” of the meaning of certain provision of SB 1070. The agreement also provided for payment of $1.4 million of taxpayer money to the ACLU and other groups. The U.S. Supreme Court struck down parts of the SB 1070 law in 2012, but other provisions were left untouched, including a provision to allow police officers individuals for proof of immigration status.
[What is Brnovich hiding??]
Collusion? Corruption? Interpretation? Government overreach or a failure to enforce the law. What about the charges made against Joe Arpaio? I like the statement Dr. Ben Carson made, just before the General Election. "We have a LOT of swamp to clean out, right here the Republican Party. Right HERE!". But....we knew that.
Bring a Suit against the Maricopa County Recorder Helen Purcell for allowing Harvested Ballots to be turned in, which Violates State law, it was announced Election Eve on the ABC Evening News that she would allow them to be turned in. This is a Violation of State Law and may just have been the straw needed to Remove Sheriff Joe from office and to many the Election can't be Certified for this reason alone.

Truthfully, we need to bring a suit against our legislature and our governor for writing a bill that didn't lay out the process for enforcement. We get these kinds of bills all the time. "You can't do..... , or else!" Where's the process? The penalty for breaking the law? The determination whether the law was properly executed? Back to the drawing board to amend that bill to clear up the problems.
They intentionally write laws with no enforcement to them so they have a bragging right at election time and when challenged as we have the LD's get upset with us, however Purcell violated and invited others to do the same thereby the election process is invalid and needs to be challenged, hope the Judicial Watch will pick this one up, as a good provable case with the video of news cast in ABC's own records.
