Last week, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), a left-leaning organization, ranked Governor Jan Brewer among the 10 worst governors in the country.
Between "ringmasters," "clowns," and "sideshows," Brewer landed in the "clowns" category, which appears to be right in the middle of the circus hierarchy.
Never mind all the cruel and unusual things Brewer has done (cruel in regard to the Latino population, unusual referencing her difficulty coping with the English language, among other things), CREW isn't concerned with that kind of stuff.
The organization cites her "improper intervention" in the state's redistricting process, her handing out of "unnecessary" bonuses, her high travel expenses, and her advocacy of voter-ID laws.
Those may not have been the top-priority criteria for your personal ranking of Brewer's governorship, so let's hear from you: is Brewer really among the worst governors in the nation?
