Arizona Guv Brewer to publish memoir on ‘battle to secure the border’

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer is set to tell her side of the SB 1070 drama in a provocatively titled memoir due out in November. “Scorpions For Breakfast: My Fight Against Special Interests, Liberal Media and Cynical Politicos to Secure America’s Border” is scheduled to be published in November by Broadside Books, a conservative imprint of HarperCollins Publishers.

It “will describe my ongoing fight to provide security for our citizens and to defeat those who profit and grow more powerful by refusing to secure our borders,” Brewer said in a statement.

Reuters reports she will write the book with Jessica Gavora, a writer who has worked for former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich and U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft.

Earlier this week, Brewer announced she would take the fight to have SB 1070 fully implemented to the U.S. Supreme Court, after a federal judge’s stay on key provisions was upheld by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in April.
