Do I really want to write one more word about recalled ex-state Senator Russell Pearce?
Not really. But despite being rejected twice in his own district by a margin of 12 points, first in a historic 2011 recall election and then in the Republican primary for state Senate in 2012, he continues to resurface, like a nasty case of political herpes.
Pearce still retains a cult of personality in the state GOP, which Maricopa County Treasurer Charles "Hos" Hoskins is part of. Recently, Hoskins created a job for the man he admires so much with our money, at the rate of $85,000 per year.
