Russell Pearce Connection Denied by Ralph Heap, Evidence to the Contrary Notwithstanding

Recently, I addressed the issue of whether or not Republican state Senate hopeful Ralph Heap is a "revenge candidate" for recalled, disgraced former state Senate President Russell Pearce, currently First Vice Chair of the Arizona GOP.

Heap is taking on state Senator Bob Worsley, the guy who buried Pearce by 12 points in the 2012 Republican primary in Legislative District 25.

Seems Heap's campaign was being serviced by sleaze-maestro and Pearce-pimp Constantin Querard. Pearce's nephew Talmage Pearce also was involved in selling Heap to tuskers.
