Failed candidate for Maricopa County Attorney, Julie Gunnigle has reclaimed attention – albeit negative attention – by attacking the woman who defeated her in the 2020 General Election. That woman, County Attorney Allister Adel, is currently recovering from brain surgery.

Gunnigle, in a series of tweets, criticized Adel, who was hospitalized for almost two months, for only working part-time while she recovers.

“The county attorney has been in some form of communication with her executive team every day last week and periodically since late December,” spokesperson Jennifer Liewer told the Arizona Republic.

Liewer told the Arizona Republic that Adel is involved in the decision-making process.

The Twittersphere reacted swiftly to Gunnigle’s attack:

Earlier this month, Gunnigle was named the Director of Politics and Civic (not civil) Engagement for the Arizona chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML).
