Behind the Ballot: The comeback kids?

 

Charles Loftus, Don Shooter and Tim Jeffries

Charles Loftus, Don Shooter and Tim Jeffries

Three men running for the state legislature are seeking much more than your votes – they want retribution.

Tim Jeffries and Charles Loftus are already suing the state to clear their names after being removed from the Arizona Department of Economic Security. And Don Shooter is contemplating a suit of his own after departing the Arizona House of Representatives in disgrace, expelled by the vast majority of his colleagues.

These candidates insist their cases against the state will have no impact on their capacity to serve as elected officials, and they’re confident their histories with the current powers that be won’t be enough to deter voters.
