Governor Jan Brewer, who helped push the toughest immigration law in America through which enables and legalizes discrimination and profiling in Arizona was asked by reporters to clear up a blatant lie which greatly effects the state she is supposed to serve.
In this interview at a local Fox station, Governor Brewer seems to be morphing into Sharron Angle right in front of the camera. In fact, if Brewer was trying to take the wingnut crown away from Michele Bachmann, it would be a toss up.
Brewer’s disdain of these reporters is made obvious, especially when she’s asked about her claim to “headless bodies” being found in the desert. This fear mongering has injured her state financially and now, she’s being called out.
Last night, it came back to bite Brewer in her televised debate with Democrat Terry Goddard — and afterward with reporters, too:
Goddard accused Brewer of damaging Arizona’s image and business prospects by portraying the state as a violent place because of border-related crime.
Goddard said that’s untrue and outrageous and she should admit she’s wrong. “There are no beheadings that was a false statement and it needs to be cleared up right now,” he said.
She responded, “Terry I will call you out, I think you ought to renounce your support of the unions that are boycotting our state.” He dismissed her demand, saying he opposes the boycott.
Afterward, reporters asked her why she didn’t answer Goddard about the beheadings. They said, “About the headless bodies? Why won’t you recant that… do you still believe that?” She turned on her heel and left the post-debate news conference — and the reporters were left grumbling.
