Why She Ran: “I’d throw my hands up and say ‘What the heck, why isn’t somebody doing something?’ And then finally I just said, ‘Why don’t I do something?’…There are no physicians – or there were no physicians – in the Arizona State Senate, so that voice was missing, I think, the voice for patients more than anything.”

Her Focus: “I’d love to figure out a way to bring some personal responsibility back into all of these government entities and government programs that we have. So really, my focus is to keep the spending low, to listen to my constituents and sponsor legislation or support legislation that they sent me here to support.”

Bills: SB 1112, which would assert Arizona’s sovereignty regarding any federal gun laws, rules, regulations, acts, statutes or orders. Among other provisions, it would make it a Class 6 felony for any official, agent or employee of the U.S. government to enforce or attempt to enforce any federal laws relating to guns, accessories or ammunition that are owned or manufactured within the state and stay exclusively within the boundaries of the state.


  1. Re: Senate Bill 1112

    For the bazillionth time, I have to explain to out-of-state friends that I am not responsible for what Arizona’s Republican legislators get up to.
    Or, why you Republicans just LOVE our Constitution — until you don’t. When it gets in your way. Or it doesn’t support what you want to do.

    You’re an educated woman, Senator, so I know you understand words like
    h-y-p-o-c-r-i-s-y and w-a-$-t-e and p-a-n-d-e-r-i-n-g and p-o-s-t-u-r-i-n-g and u-n-c-o-n-s-t-i-t-u-t-i-o-n-a-l.

    Unfortunately, that knowledge didn’t stop you from attaching your name to this bill.

  2. Senator Ward,

    According to Az state legislature site you did not vote on bill SB1086. That bill was to protect people like myself, I’m a service member who wears patches on my back and ride motorcycles. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been pulled over for no legitimate reason by police. This is called harassment and now even our legislators don’t want to help protect us, shame on you. I’m not an outlaw, I don’t ride with outlaws, I don’t drink alcohol, I protect our Nation, and now legislators don’t want to help protect me. Maybe it’s time to let the news media know your position and lack of action to protect Arizona citizens from improper Police profiling. I urge you to take another look at what this bill does and know it’s for all Arizona citizens. Please re-vote Yes

  3. The US has entered into a contract with a real estate firm to sell 56 buildings that currently house U.S. Post Offices. The government decided it no longer needs these buildings, most of which are located on prime land in towns and cities across the country. The sale of these properties will fetch about $19 billion.
    A regular real estate commission will be paid to the company that was given the exclusive listing for handling the sales. That company is CRI and it belongs to a man named Richard Blum.

    Richard Blum is the husband of Senator Dianne Feinstein. (Most voters and many of the government people who approved the deal have not made the connection between the two because they have different last names).

    Senator Feinstein and her husband stand to make a fortune (estimated at between $950 million and $1.1 billion!!) from these transactions. His company is the sole real estate agent on the sale. CRI will be making a minimum of 3% and as much as 6% commission on each and every sale.

    All of the properties that are being sold are all fully paid for. They were purchased with U.S. taxpayers dollars. The U.S.P.S. is allowed free and clear, tax exempt use. The only cost to keep them open is the cost to
    actually keep the doors open and the heat and lights on. The United States Postal Service doesn’t even have to pay county property taxes on these
    subject properties.

    Would you put your house in foreclosure just because you couldn’t afford to pay the electric bill?

    Well, the folks in Washington have given the Post Office the OK to do it! Worse yet, most of the net proceeds of the sales will go back to the U.S.P.S,
    an organization that is so poorly managed that they have lost $117 billion dollars in the past 10 years!
    ne in the mainstream media is even raising an eyebrow over the conflict of interest and on the possibility of corruption on the sale of millions of dollars worth of public assets.

    How does a U.S. Senator from San Francisco manage to get away with organizing and lobbying such a sweet deal? Has our government become so
    elitist that they have no fear of oversight?

    And it’s no mere coincidence that these two public service crooks have different last names; a feeble attempt at avoiding transparency in these type of transactions.

    Pass this info on before it’s pulled from the internet.

    Verified on Snopes:

  4. I read about your opposition to Common Core and decided that you were either uninformed or misinformed about the program and wanted to help you understand why 43 states support the plan. See Then I Googled you and learned that you are a right wing educated racist conservative from West Virginia and gave up hope. — Please run against McCain – and win – the Democrats need an easy target..
