Worst Part of Christine Jones' Campaign for Governor So Far?
One-third of Christine Jones.
Photoshop magic by Ray Stern
It's not even the election year yet, but the campaign of former Go Daddy lawyer and GOP candidate for governor Christine Jones is not going well.
Yesterday, our colleague Ray Stern reported Jones' 2004 DUI conviction, although history (Governor Glug-Glug) shows that's not the end of the world.
Really, the only thing going for Jones right now is the fact that she's not disbarred and disgraced former Maricopa County Attorney "Candy Andy" Thomas, whose run for governor is horrible just by existing.

But, in addition to the DUI, there was also Jones sucking-up to Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Not only was she sucking up to him, but she also claimed Arpaio put out water for immigrants crossing the Rio Grande. (No he doesn't and the Rio Grande, last time we checked, doesn't even come close to dripping into Arizona, let alone Maricopa County.)
There's also Jones' claim that she doesn't like those racy Go Daddy ads -- like the one she starred in (she wasn't the, um, talent, at least).
So, what's the worst part of Jones' campaign so far, with more than one year left before election day?
