Sept 2 Show: Scot Mussi, AZ Free Enterprise Club, talks about their big victory against corrupt ballot initiative

Brian Sussman talks with Scot Mussi, President of Arizona Free Enterprise Club about their HUGE win with the Arizona Supreme Court in the fight to keep the left’s corrupt ballot initiative off the ballot this November!!  Scot said” “The ruling today vindicates what we knew all along: the radical Free and Fair election initiative lacked enough lawful signatures to qualify for the ballot.”

AZ Free Enterprise Club led the fight to stop this corrupt ballot both with grassroots and in the courts.

Last Friday, the Arizona Supreme Court affirmed the lower court ruling and officially removed the “Free and Fair” election initiative from the ballot!  If the Ballot had succeeded, it would have made true free & fair elections in AZ very difficult to achieve. The deceitful name of the ballot cynically counted on uninformed voters to vote yes; who would want free and fair elections. The actual ballot would accomplish the opposite.

The ruling vindicated what we knew all along—their proposed initiative DID NOT have enough valid signatures to qualify for the ballot. The other side knew it too, and that is why their lawyers tried to get the court to adopt their rigged methodology to artificially inflate their final number of valid signatures.

Thankfully, after multiple appeals, the court discarded their rigged formula and the correct statutory calculation was used to show that they lacked the minimum number of signatures to qualify for the ballot. Arizona voters, the rule of law and basic math were VICTORIOUS.
