Russell Pearce's Olivia Cortes Breaks Silence in ABC 15 Interview

Cortes talks to ABC 15

Greg Western, Cortes' "adviser," chats with ABC 15

Keep in mind as you watch these ABC 15 interviews, first with sham recall candidate Olivia Cortes, then with Cortes' "adviser" and Pearce loyalist Greg Western, that Cortes' sticking her face out the door of her humble condo is a direct result of the lawsuit against her and the hearing today in Maricopa County Superior Court.

There are a lot of questions ABC 15 didn't ask, obviously. But maybe the press will get a chance to put some of those to Cortes today, and I'm hoping elections law attorney Tom Ryan places her under oath and asks them as well. I think perjury is still a crime, even if lying is just the way business is done here in Arizona.
