Russell Pearce: Jerry Lewis "Supports Gays in Boy Scouts" -- and More Whining From Ousted Senate President
Russell Pearce, Arizona's biggest loser, apparently is a little bitter about getting booted from office.
Ousted former Arizona Senate President Russell Pearce went On the Record With Greta Van Susteren last night to discuss his getting booted from office -- and piss and moan about Jerry Lewis, the man who beat him in Tuesday's historic recall election.
Van Susteren asked Pearce whether he and Lewis are friends. He responded by launching into a tirade about recall elections, boy scouts, and homosexuals.
"That's a stretch. We're not enemies, but that's a stretch. It's just not true. He opposes SB-1070, he supports the Dream Act. He supports gays in Boy Scouts. He's endorsed by the Democrats. We are at opposite ends of this issue. So that's a stretch," Pearce says.
Pearce goes on to whine about how unfair the recall was, and discuss his political future.
