Russell Pearce, Author of Arizona Immigration Law, Voted off the IslandPublished: Nov 9, 2011 9:30 am
The tribe has spoken. Russell Pearce, author of Arizona's controversial S.B. 1070, has been recalled by a fellow Republican Jerry Lewis, a school administrator, not the comedian.
According to the latest polls Pearce lost by about an 8% margin, despite outspending Lewis by a reported 3-1 ratio. Pearce conceded the loss Tuesday night, which is being interpreted as a referendum on the State's hard-line immigration law. Pearce was the leader of the Arizona State Senate, and is the first legislator to be recalled in the history of the State.
It appears that sanity has finally returned to the State of Arizona. It is a welcomed return.
