John Shadegg is the current representative from AZ Congressional District 3. He is not running for re-election.
Three Sonorans has already covered one of the candidates, Pamela Gorman, who follows in the footsteps of Sarah Palin, and I also included VIDEO of her in that post.
Now we have new video emerging from Dennis Gilman who caught up with Sam Crump, who is running for US Congress in the 86% white district that includes Paradise Valley, and had the following to say:
I caught former State Rep. Sam Crump doing interviews with the media outside Sandra Day O’Connor U.S. Courthouse last week while waiting for the first Lawsuit against SB 1070 to finish. Since KTAR and others lacked the integrity to challenge Crump on his info, I felt obligated to at least try.
Crump boasts he co-sponsored SB 1070 and also is proud of supporting Arizona’s Employer Sanctions law which has cost tax payers almost 6 million dollars and netted only 2 convictions in 3 years. He is now running for Congress in CD3. Like most Republican Politicians he uses fear to motivate people to vote for him and disregards facts about the Arizona border and immigration. So far they’ve misinformed the public on murder, rape, welfare, kidnappings, beheadings, disease and even terrorism. But what disturbs me the most is the lack of respect they show towards human life…..unless it’s one white rancher.
Political opportunists like Russell Pearce, Jan Brewer and others cannot stop exploiting the unsolved murder of Robert Krantz yet never mention the murders of 9 year old Brisenia Flores and her father by Minutemen or the more recent murder of Juan Verela now listed as a hate crime. White privilege is alive and well in Arizona. It has become perfectly acceptable in most circles.
Three Sonorans would like to add that the rancher that was killed may not have been killed by a Mexican immigrant and that it may have even been and American that murdered Krentz. Either way, the FBI and even the conservative CATO institute agree that crime on the American side of the border has not increased in the last decade.[tnivideo caption=”Sam Crump, candidate for AZ-3, on SB1070″ credit=”Dennis Gilman”]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dmw2cvSGrjE
