Its surprising how much you can accomplish if you don't care who gets the credit
[Editor: Perhaps you got an email message from one William Heuisler making untrue statements about U.S. Senate candidate, Alex Meluskey. Our AFA team has researched every candidate in that race and some of our team members have personal knowledge regarding the mail piece included in that message because it was sent in their district and they got it. AFA addressed that at the time and actually got the true story from several recipients of the mail piece and we met with Meluskey - who was not running for anything at the time except PC - as to how that mail piece came to be sent. We confirmed with others involved to verify the story we got from Meluskey in 2014. One of our team members also contacted the election department as to whether there was a violation and it was dismissed. Our team can assure everyone that there is nothing to this. That letter full of lies and distortions is the very reason Republicans are fed up with this kind of campaigning and yellow reporting.]
Here is the Meluskey response:
Dear friends, supporters and dignitaries:
I usually make it a strong habit to ignore internet trolls and their lies, but since more than a few of you on this email sent this to me to be sure I saw it, I wanted to take a brief moment to reply clearly to the inane and libelous rantings.
I offer my apologies for bothering you with such nonsense, but since we all understand that even unfounded lies can do damage, it is best to nip them in the bud and then be done and satisfied with the matter.
It is regrettable Kelli Ward, her husband and their supporters take to social media and email with personal attacks, lies, innuendo, obfuscation, slander, libel, and gossip rather than sticking to substantive issues. Nevertheless, such do require serious rebuttal from time-to-time.
Allow me to briefly reply to these accusations, if they can even be called that.
First, that I, my business, or perhaps my campaign has done anything illegal. Ludicrous. There are more than enough government regulatory oversight entities to address any legitimate violations if they occur at all. In this particular charge, they have not.
The single document provided as an alleged illegal activity was nothing but a paid print job by my company. All logos and names used were in control of and compliance rests with the client. The charge of any illegal misdeeds is libelous and false. Notice is hereby given that anyone who further persists in spreading such lies may be brought to court for their actions.
Second, that I or anyone associated with my campaign or business is being paid for by McCain is also ludicrous, libelous and a downright malicious lie. My donations to my campaign are my personal life savings. Kelli has also donated her own money to her campaign. So have Trump and Cruz and pretty much anyone who has ever run for any office. That is a non story.
Why am I spending my savings? Because, I so strongly believe our country is standing on the verge of either great reform or impending disaster, I could not stand by living a comfortable life while my nation and the future of my children’s nation was in such jeopardy. It is put up or shut up.
Third, that my campaign staff or supporters are establishment insiders. Do these Ward liars not know how to use Google very well? My Campaign Manager has indeed worked on five Presidential Campaigns, and far too many other national and federal campaigns to even count, but did they bother to look up the persons for whom he worked and his titles?
National Political Director for Ron Paul 2008: Who was Ron Paul running against in 2008? Oh, that’s right, John McCain.
National Operations Director for Alan Keyes 2000. Are Alan Keyes and Ron Paul establishment insiders? Does anyone believe this lie?
He is also a nationally syndicated radio talk show host and a renowned conservative documentary filmmaker whose film “UnFair: Exposing the IRS” was released in 700 theaters nationwide last year.
How did I meet such an establishment insider? I was the state theater captain leader for his movie! He came through Arizona two years ago while filming the IRS abuses for his documentary, we met and discussed the importance of this race. At the time I had no idea the criteria we discussed for the candidate we needed to recruit to defeat John McCain in “the year of the outsider” would end up being me.
You can check out his movie or book on Amazon and see for yourself. http://www.amazon.com/UnFair-Exposing-IRS-Craig-Bergman/dp/1939447593
In addition to Craig and his experience, I have a former Reagan Whitehouse staffer in Washington D.C. who is advising my campaign, along with several well known and influential Arizona activists locally.
Lastly, the ridiculous charges that I am not a conservative at all, or I am dropping out of the race, or somehow joined the Tea Party, the Republican Assemblies, or ran for Precinct Committeeman as part of some secret plan to thwart the conservative movement as a whole.
I am the State Director of the Fair Tax. I am on the board or a member of several prominent national conservative organizations. I am the only 100% full spectrum conservative in this race. Unapologetic on the three legged stool of the Reagan Platform: Social Issues, Fiscal Issues and Strong National Defense.
My slogan of Principles not Politics is all the more self-evident when we consider these wicked, selfish and misleading attacks in the context of the real world consequences of the bills actually written by Kelli Ward. A despicable record she no doubt loathes to defend—instead resorting to these debase less tactics of the establishment. “You shall know them by their fruits”.
Thanks to the efforts of Kelli Ward, who was the primary author of the bill in the Arizona Senate stripping the power and authority away from Diane Douglas; powers that may have prevented the introduction of liberal sex education standards to children as young as kindergarten. This serves as a reminder that this is a serious election with serious and long-term consequences.
There is no place or time to engage in or support candidates who engage in such contemptible politics. I strongly condemn the malicious lies spread by Kelli and Michael Ward and their supporters or any other liars.
McCain does not fund me. My staffers are long-standing proven conservatives and national leaders. I raised all my donations legally. I am a 100% true Reagan conservative and the only candidate with deep, detailed, and articulate positions covering every issue in the Republican party platform. I was the first filed candidate for this office. Kelli Ward filed months later. She is the spoiler. Lastly, I am not dropping out of this race because I refuse to trade the old establishment for a new one.
These are serious times for serious people. The Ward campaign has proven that it is not a serious campaign of issues, but an unprofessional gathering of disreputable liars.
Most sincerely & respectfully,
Your humble servant,
The Principled Conservative Candidate for US Senate

This is the last time I will waste my time on someone without the pride to even mention his name. Documentation of Meluskey's two violations of Arizona Law is in his "Voter's Guide" - the altered and misauthorized campaign literature he printed and distributed for Precinct 59 BRONCO
I have been a PC since 1968, a Dist. Chair in the seventies and Eighties; was involved Statewide as the leader of the Prop 106 Tax Initiative on the ballot in 1980 and I was the Southern Arizona Chairman for Mecham and a Tucson Police Officer who won two commendations.
If you have anything else to say to me, why don't we meet somewhere.
I killed the first pterodactyl. For you to come out of the woodwork after almost forty years is unusual. To do so with visceral passion is almost unprecedented. We have covered this crap multiple times. There has NEVER been a court case on a PC case. You conveniently ignore that, but that is all you have.
You refer to the "Heuisler vs. Phoenix Newspapers" but apparently did not read the full set of briefs (remember this was my libel suit against the AZ Republic) that show how my suit was declared not sufficient because I was a "public figure" and had to show that AZ Republic Editor had "Actual Malice" toward me when he wrote his lies and half-truths about me. Read the full account and remember that I was investigator for the family of hit-and-run-victim Viola Faber, who was killed by AZ Republic Editor, Pat Murphy - who wrote the article I sued the Republic for.
Using my Libel suit against the AZ Republic for printing the lies and half-truths you then repeat is simply absurd. Trying to damage my record and reputation in this State because I write the truth about McCain and Meluskey only illustrates the quality of your defense of Meluskey.
Mr. Bill (I already told you my last name): I only posted one of several articles I could have posted about your reputation and I posted it pretty much w/o comment. I documented your reputation. You document nothing. That speaks for itself. Good day!
