Good. Now we need to figure out how to keep bought-and-paid-for GOP spoiler and former Democrat Betsy Johnson off the ballot.

Her campaign is being funded by GOP operatives.

“ Well, this morning their bank account took another hit, after a judge ruled that Cyber Ninjas is in contempt for not turning over public records, which the court ordered back in August.

The firm hired by the Arizona Senate to conduct a review of the Maricopa County election was found in contempt of court Thursday and ordered to pay sanctions of $50,000 a day until it turns over public records from the review to The Arizona Republic.

Cyber Ninjas says the firm has shut down and Doug Logan is now the “former” CEO and all workers have been let go. The firm’s lawyer even tried to resign during today’s 2-hour hearing, since he says he hasn’t been paid. Maricopa Superior Court Judge John Hannah was having none of it; Cyber Ninjas is sitting on records that the public is entitled to, and they can’t escape their responsibilities by simply saying they’re out of business.

“The court is not going to accept the assertion that Cyber Ninjas is an empty shell and that nobody is responsible for seeing that it complies,” Hannah said.

If Cyber Ninjas doesn’t comply with the order, Judge Hannah says he’ll issue orders directly against the individuals. The Arizona Republic had only sought a $1,000 per day fine but Judge Hannah, who said this is the most important case he’s handled in 16 years on the bench, said Cyber Ninjas’ noncompliance was worth 50 times that amount and he wanted “to put Cyber Ninjas on notice.”

Pierce that corporate veil!

I think that’s a good thing. There is no reason why people who are living in a place, whatever their immigration or citizenship status, shouldn’t get a say in what happens.

Given that Wisconsin votes 60% Dem at a local level, one would hope he gets his fascist ass kicked. But we’ve got to get voting rights legislation passes, ASAP.

“ Along with defending the Columbus statue, he is leading a lawsuit against Mayor Jim Kenney arguing that the city discriminated against Italian Americans, including by changing Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples’ Day. He worked with groups critical of the removal of the statue of former Mayor Frank Rizzo and worked with Maureen Faulkner to try to disqualify District Attorney Larry Krasnerfrom appeals involving Mumia Abu-Jamal, the man convicted of killing Faulkner’s husband, Philadelphia Police Officer Daniel Faulkner. (The petition was dismissed by the state Supreme Court.)

Bochetto’s firm also wrote some of the legal briefs defending former President Donald Trump in his second impeachment trial, after the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol. Bochetto’s firm focused on the First Amendment arguments, work that he pointed out later won praise from legal scholar Alan Dershowitz.”

George Bochetto , a Philadelphia attorney who entered the race this week, came out swinging at the outsiders, who all have substantial past ties to Pennsylvania. He punched hardest at Oz, the famous television doctor known for his New Jersey mansion overlooking the Manhattan skyline.

“Why can’t he just admit he’s been living in New Jersey for the last 30 years?” Bochetto said in an interview. “Why does he have to lie to the people and say, ‘I’m a Pennsylvanian’? It’s really insulting to the voters’ intelligence.”
