Its surprising how much you can accomplish if you don't care who gets the credit
.... Deputy Comms Director RESIGNS Over ‘Systematic Failures
Editor: As a side note, AZGOP Chairman Jonathan Lines was served today with a lawsuit for defamation by Mark and Maria Syms. Lines publicly claimed they had committed a crime for which they were convicted and ordered to pay $70,000. This supposedly had something to do with signature gathering by Mark Syms for the 2018 primary. This claim is entirely false and the judge in a case surrounding the signature gathering ruled Mark Syms was found innocent of all wrong doing. You may remember that Maria Syms was an incumbent candidate for the House in LD28 and Lines sent out a mailer to all Republican voters in that district with all candidates on it EXCEPT Maria Syms. How foolish does this man have to get? Rhetorical question! Now is seems there is a whistleblower revealing the truth about the illegal shenanigans with the AZGOP money. You may also remember that we were the first to reveal similar shenanigans by former Chairman Robert Graham for which the AZGOP has been fined by the FEC. AZRA members dug up the info in 2015 and filed a claim with the FEC.
The memo, sent by Deputy Communications Director Robert Maxwell to Executive Director Kyle Pierce on Wednesday, outlines failures that were observed in 2018 — such as resources being misappropriated for the benefit of Chairman Jonathan Lines’ reelection bid and Governor Doug Ducey using the party as his “personal political operation.”
The memo begins with Maxwell explaining how much he loves the party, the president, and Republican activists in the state. He said that because of that, he is “saddened to write this memo.”
“I have witnessed systemic failures within the Arizona Republican Party that not only led to the most significant Republican losses in a generation in 2018, but if allowed to persist will cost President Trump Arizona in 2020, thus costing him our electoral votes. President Trump should not be forced to worry about Arizona turning blue, yet if the AZGOP doesn’t do something to radically shake up its strategy that is exactly what will happen,” the memo says.
Maxwell goes on to list “just a few” of the issues he says he has personally witnessed that left him greatly concerned for the future of the state’s party. He alleges that “more often than not, both before and after the 2018 general election, the AZGOP office is entirely empty except for a single low level staffer or volunteer.”

LYIN' LINES AND HIS COMRADES STRIKE AGAIN!
Someone sent out an email earlier today (Fri 1/25) disguising themselves as me, Samuel Adams, claiming to represent American Post-Gazette. From what we can tell, it was sent to the AZGOP email list.
It's not me.
The post blasts Dr. Kelli Ward, so it's an obvious Jonathan Lines' comrade who feels the heat of a Dr. Ward candidacy.
American Post-Gazette writers unanimously support Dr. Ward for GOP State Chair.
You can always tell when a post is legitimately from us. The return email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, at the bottom of the post next to "unsubscribe" will be your individual email address. (Not that we want any of you to unsubscribe; it's just that the notice is required.)
This was a desperate attempt to divide Dr. Ward's supporters. Don't fall for it. Mr. Lines needs to be replaced and Dr. Ward is the right person to lead the AZGOP to victory.
We are sorry Mr. Lines' supporters have to stoop so low, but it's not surprising.
For the Love of Life, Liberty, and Property,
