Michael: A Halloween Fright for Mr. Burnell SmithJudge Colin Campbell has set a hearing for 10 a.m. Oct. 31 for Mr. Burnell Smith to show cause why an order removing him from office should not be entered.
By 11 a.m. there will be a list of replacements on the Maricopa County Board of Supervisor's desks. My guess is that Smith's name will be among them. If they are stupid enough to choose Mr. Smith to replace Smith's scoff-law self, there will be yet more lawsuits that Mr. Smith will lose.
The voters, who support Clean Elections overwhelmingly, will not be charitable toward such shenanigans. We have all had quite enough of politicians, from either party, who think that the rules shouldn't apply to them. Across the country I hope to a house cleaning and perp walking of all such men who think that our republic is their plaything.
