ADP Chairwoman Demands Apology from Arizona Republican Party Following Shameful Political Attack on U.S. Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick

Arizona Democratic Party Chair Alexis Tameron called out the leadership of the Arizona Republican Party after a disgraceful political attack targeting Arizona Congresswoman and U.S. Senate candidate Ann Kirkpatrick.

“I'm dumbstruck by the inexcusable lack of judgment displayed by the AZGOP,” said Arizona Democratic Party Chair Alexis Tameron. “Arizonans have witnessed, firsthand, how inciteful rhetoric and imagery can influence acts of aggression and violence towards elected officials. Today's political stunt by the Arizona Republican Party illustrates not only a lack of judgment, but a complete disregard of the tragedy that traumatized so many Arizonans on January 8, 2011. AZGOP Chairman Robert Graham and Sen. John McCain should immediately apologize and condemn this display for what it is: a painful and tasteless political act that is unworthy of our politics.”

The AZGOP delivered a “wanted” poster with bullet holes to the Kirkpatrick for Senate campaign office in a disgusting and desperate attempt to help John McCain, who is in a tight Senate race.
