PHOENIX – Last week, Congresswoman Martha McSally made the shocking declaration that it’s “not her job” to address sexual misconduct allegations by other politicians. Her words were a repeated refusal to condemn Roy Moore – a move that would enrage the president and harm her attempts to stave off a civil war within the Arizona Republican Party.
But McSally’s attempts fell flat, and her choice to put politics ahead of Arizonans was covered across the state.
