A Urgent Post To All Political Arizona Bloggers

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Over the past month many conservative and Republicans have been voicing concerns about a situation that is occuring in your state. If the allegations are true then this could be explosive and cause conservatives and Republicans great damage in the general election this November on a nationwide basis. This concern has developed into far more than just chatter. Conservative and Republicans have on blogs and internet forums taken considerable time in researching these rumors. What is being found is getting more troubling by day. This could affect many of our Republicans hopefuls in the general if this is not explored now. Some Repub canadiates involved know exactly what is going on. Others might be damaged by sheer ignorance.

This revolves mainly around the Minuteman project. The Washington Times has come out with reports involving matters of grave concern about this. As you shall see this only scratches the surface. Also there is another urgent matter for Republicans and Conservatives in Arizona. This matter might touch a race that is occuring in the Republican Primary in District 08 right now. This is of course the district where a Republican Primary is occuring to replace Congressman Kobe. This also involves a Republican that has embraced the Minuteman Group under Chris Simcox as well as people that are receiving money under this pac

I have several post on this subject and the players involved. However this info comes from mainly the work of others. At the bottom of this post I shall comprise a list of every blogger that I have sent this post too. I will leave it to you to ask the appropriate questions of the people in your State. May I suggest if we don't the Dems will in the General Election.

Washington Times Stories as to Minutemen and possible Fence Scam
Minutemen skeptical of ties with Keyes project.

This article discusses The overview of the scam. Including the following Players- Diener Consulting associated with Phil Sheldon and Williame Greene of Renew America that is associated with Alan Keyes, The Sheldons and William Greene. Response Unlimited and Response Enterprises that have the same associations. that hof course is related to all the beforementioned. And of course Mr Chris Simcox.

Human Events Story
A important artricle to look at and especially when examing this issue with the thread that will provided below. Please focus on American Caging. For you people in Arizona this is important. Mr Graf that is involved in the primary has given 20,000 dollars in "caging fees" toAmerican caging. This should be examined as well as his FEC reports that have been submited for other connections to the above characters.
Note- American Caging is a important link in this. American Caging is not a corporation and has not been since July of 2005. That fact is not disclosed. Read this with other threads closely.

Threads from Conservative Forums that must be read.

I will list these groups in order. Each forum has members that bring particular expertise to the issue. In fact on one forum Minutemen and Spokewoman Connie Hair speak. Much origianal research is contained in all these threads and forums

Conservative Forums (note there is goodnature sniping between these forums as you can see lol. But the meat is the info. Consensus is on all three forums is there is a major problem)
I have not listed any liberal forums that is because it is not being talked about. Ask yourself why and if it is because they are holding their fire.

Important info For Graf Race in Arizona
Now I take no pleasure in this. For the record I am not employed nor a particular advocate for any person in this Republican Primary. For full disclosure Kraf is not where I am at on the immigration issue. However, if he wins his connection to the minutemen and to other folks is going ot be very problemactic if there is fire too this ton of smoke.
Major thread to read. This touches on race's around the country. Again involvement of these groups are having to have questions raised so we can clear our Republicans names so not to be used against us. More American Caging, More Keyes, More dubious folks
update- I have been contacted and told info on Graf that needs to be seen will be added top the above. Again just question but questions we need to ask not Dems.

A Liberal Blog In Arizona starts to make some connections(I don't think he or she realizes what their blog was on too)
Randy Graf holds the unusual distinction of being the darling of the left and the right, simulaneously. Heck, I've even considered a donation to his campaign. He is the champion of the far Right, yet many liberals feel sure that he is the best hope for Democrats to overcome our slight registration disadvantage in the district by pushing independents and moderate Republicans into voting Democratic. We'll see.
Considering that Graf has been running pretty much continuously since 2004, his numbers don't look so hot. He brought in over 60K this quarter, but he also spent over 60K. The graph below is incorrect. Graf started the quarter with about 25K on hand, and ended it the same way. Graf is living off the land. His major expense has been fundraising. He spent 20K for services from
American Caging, alone. Coincidentally (or maybe not), American Caging boasts of the Minutemen among their clientele. Throw in over almost $7,000 in payments to Compass Bank for 'fundraising', $2,500 in payments to Graf himself for 'mileage and fundraising', over $13,000 in payments to various 'political consultants', and over $6,400 to a 'High Noon Campaign Products' for a fundraising letter, and the rest of the operation is pretty spare

I am very worried about this race. Graf might be pure as the friven snow. But that American Caging connection raises big flags. For an example examine the recent Lewis race in the West Virgina Primary as Exhibit 1

Please take time to LOOK at Graf's FEC filings. Better us to ask the questions now than the Dems in October.Hopefully everything is ok.

The important thing to look at is the disbursements. Especially to out of state firms. Ask who are they? Again hopefully everything will be in the clear

I will be posting in their comment Sections as well as email the blogs in Arizona. I will post over the night and email any Arizona Blog that has updated within the last 10 days. On Saturday Night I shall mail this post to all media in the State of Arizona. I suggest we bloggers be the watchdogs we should. Arizona this is in your own backyard. We are depending on you.

I shall send this out to at least 50 blogs tonight. I have a list. I shall update this post throughout the night as I list blogs that have been given this info

Blogs Contacted-Note these are all Political Blogs or Blogs in Arizona where at least it seems they mention politics once in a while . We Republicans are in control of our Destiny right now since we are in the primary season. At this point I am not going top spend 10 minutes per blog trying to find political leanings of each blog.

As to all the serious and seriously disturbing info here, my hat is off to Pondering American for pulling all of this info together. I was familiar with 3 or 4 of the threads you've linked. But much of this is new and will make fascinating weekend reading.

Is it too much to hope that a guy like Sean Hannity will show some intellectual honesty, after all the promoting and cheerleading he's done for Slimeball Simcox and the Invisible Fence? Probably.

As for the gaggle of loud mouth Right Wing Alien Purge bloggers, my guess is none of them will touch it, as it may raise difficult questions about their agenda.

I will try to email Jerry Seper @ WashTimes, and a few other media folks who seem to have integrity.

Linked from Brainster's Blog. Not sure I understand the whole story here, but there certainly seems to be adequate reasons for concern. Good job by all involved!

Okay people are you reading for the truth of American Caging owned by Maureen E Otis Pc? Well here it goes.
I work for the her since May of 2006. It lets just say while am working there nothing seems right at all. I noticed a lot of things going on there that people should know about her and the company. One payroll checks are hot and on the fraud list here in Tx, also she is not in good standing withe the IRS, which means her not registered with them, which means the company is not a legitment company. She is also a racist,but yet she continues to hire poor blacks on welfare, and hispanics, legal or not in her company. Mostly people whoe work for her and brings in there family from Mexico or other Countries to work there for nothing. Money has been coming in steadly everyday but, yet we are always short here or there when trying to balance our books. Yet nothing has happened to her. She has warrents out for her arrest on fraud for the payroll checks and never opened the door for the Police when they presented to her. And she told everyone she will fire the first persons who will open the door. Now I dont know about you but, am not a mad ex-employee. I still work there and in the process of trying to find somewhere else to go. And heres the kicker people. She lets her dog crap at the work place while she sleeps there while running from the law. And expects us to look for it and clean it. Someone needs to do something as we who work for her are poor but not stupid. Every body knows there is something very wrong with this company, but to afraid to say anything as it will mean they cant feed there kids and family. Who's looking out for us? It's not the TWC or the EEOC.
