Elected to the Arizona Senate for three terms. Served half a term in the House which was rough on both the House and me. I was expelled after former House member Javan Mesnard made material changes to an independent, tax payer funded investigative report. Unfortunately, that is why the Legislature will not release all of the information obtained by the investigator (names can & should be redacted). The investigators were hired to investigate, not litigate but Mesnard is hiding behind "attorney client" privilege. We all have a right to know what was removed from the original draft submitted by the independent investigator. I continue to spend tens of thousands of dollars to fight for the release of all of the information obtained by the investigator which includes items and information I provided that were removed and omitted from the public report.
Regrettably, my expulsion wasn't what it was held out to be. There is much more to it, though, when your reputation and character are destroyed and people believe things that are untrue, it is darn near impossible to get anyone to listen, let alone care. Though, that was the point, I guess, wasn't it? And though I understand that I don't matter, the truth does. The truth does . . . .
