You only have to wonder what took so long. On Tuesday signed petitions were turned in to launch a recall against Arizona State Senate President Russell Pearce, the author and chief promoter of Arizona’s SB 1070–the granddaddy of all state anti-immigration measures. Today, Tom Tancredo’s Team America PAC sent out an email soliciting funds to help Pearce defend his seat.
The email ends by noting that recall elections follow different rules than normal elections. Get this: “Because it is a recall effort corporate funds are welcomed and contributions are unlimited!!”
From the email:
Our friend and Arizona’ s national hero, State Senate President Russell Pearce, needs our help and he needs it today! The Open Border crowd is targeting him for a recall. Why? Because Russell has done more to stop illegal immigration than any other legislator in the country. And he won’t stop until the job is done.
Let me be clear about this. Russell Pearce is the most effective legislator on immigration issues in the country….state or federal! For starters, he is the architect of SB 1070—the most effective piece of legislation against illegal immigration ever written and passed. It is so powerful a tool against illegal immigration that Open Borders Obama is suing Arizona in federal court to try and block it!
But that’s not all. For years Russell has been relentless in his efforts to rid his state of illegal immigrants. Whether it was Prop 200 (no voting or social services for illegals) or the tough “Legal Arizona Workers Act” the Supreme Court upheld last week (permitting states to require businesses to use E-verify and allowing them revoke their business licenses if they knowingly hire illegals) Russell was the man behind it.
