Disbarred former Maricopa County Attorney and current Republican gubernatorial candidate Andrew Thomas has released a very Andrew Thomas-y campaign ad.
By "Andrew Thomas-y," we mean there's a crossed-out Mexican flag, and Thomas claiming to stand up to the "gay lobby."
Also, the claim that he somehow managed to stop illegal immigration is what literary scholars would classify as a fairytale.
It only gets worse when you consider that Thomas is running a publicly funded (that's you and me) campaign thanks to Clean Elections.
Did we mention that Thomas lost his law license for blatantly abusing his power as county attorney?
