I knew Brewer’s opponent, AZ Attorney General, Terry Goddard would waste no time putting AZ Gov. Jan Brewer’s lies in a campaign commercial…
Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard is taking aim at Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer for making the false suggestion that law enforcement officials in the Grand Canyon State have turned up “beheaded” bodies in addressing crime related to illegal immigration.
Brewer admitted she “misspoke” in reciting the debunked claim last week, and now, Goddard, a Democrat challenging the incumbent governor, is out with a new campaign ad attempting to capitalize on the major flop.
The message from Goddard’s camp:
Back in June, Jan Brewer made multiple false statements about beheadings in Arizona. These fear-mongering comments hurt Arizona as we were already struggling with high unemployment and lagging tourism. Now that her debate-night debacle has revived these irresponsible allegations, Brewer is backtracking and claiming she meant the beheadings were in the “border region” rather than Arizona. Once again, Jan Brewer is not telling the truth.
