Arizona’s Clean Elections: Sunday’s Comic

Democrats Lose But Party Wins With Clean Money Turned Dark

In February, in a late night session, Democrats blocked HB2403, a bill designed to stop the practice of turning Clean Elections money into dark money. The bill’s failure in the Arizona House of Representatives on a party line vote caused some intrepid Capitol insiders to follow the money.

HB2403 would have prohibited Clean Elections candidates from contributing public funds to political parties. While a majority of House members supported HB2403, it failed to achieve support from three-fourths of the body, which is required to amend statutes created through the initiative process.

Had it passed, it might have prevented the Democratic Party, or any party for that matter, from funneling Clean Elections money to their respective parties, and end the lucrative but shady practice of running unviable candidates simply to collect taxpayer dollars.

  1. The clean elections are a communist venture. One that everyone can be on equal playing field. And if candidate wins Nother candidate does them for winning.

  3. So Clean Elections isn’t doing the job. Why have it then? So Democrats can use dark money to fund their undercover illegal political hacks.

  4. As I have posted before, your cheap elected help is not so cheap and they are out of control. The voters have allowed them to become a class unto themselves, the political class that can pretty much do what they want, when they want. The want the voters as far away from the scams as possible and this is but just one example. Just this year, they passed a bill to limit the way an voter initiative can be placed on the ballot. They made it more restrictive and are trying to add to it. They want complete control over the voters and their lies. How utterly pathetic have we sheep become? Don’t answer, I already know. And the stupid voters will continue to vote for the asses that want to take their powers away.
