A press conference held by attorney Tom Ryan, regarding CD8 candidate Steve Montenegro and his relationship with a former Arizona Senate staffer has left reporters with more questions than answers.
Ryan called the press conference in response to a report that revealed the identity of the staffer, Stephanie Holford, with whom Montenegro exchanged texts. In the bizarre news conference in front of the Arizona Senate building, Ryan claimed that Holford was a victim of revenge porn by her former boyfriend Kent Lyons.
According to Ryan, Lyons drove Holford to Ryan’s office for legal assistance after the News Times revealed that Holford had spent 7 years in prison prior to taking a position as a digital media coordinator in the Arizona Senate.
Ryan claimed that he had talked to Lyons twice to arrange the meeting with Holford. Ryan claimed that Lyons told him that Holford was a “whistleblower.” “When I met with her,” Ryan told reporters, “within a matter of seconds, she told me, ‘I’m not willingly here.’”
It appears, according to the texts, that her statement was true and the truth is chilling…..
