Carmona caught in lie about voting
From jeff Flake for Senate:
Election Records Don’t Back Up Richard Carmona’s Claim that He Voted in 2010
Pima County Recorder says it didn’t happen as Carmona recalls
PHOENIX – The 2010 election was an important election with much at stake for the state and nation. Democrat Richard Carmona claims he voted, but election officials in Pima County say he didn’t. Indeed, records prove that he sat out both the primary and general elections.
“If you’re asking people for your vote in this election, then I think people should expect that you take your franchise as a voter seriously,” said Jeff Flake.
And records further show that Carmona has a pattern of skipping primary elections. Carmona’s response has been to say: “I think it’s very disingenuous when I’m an independent to cite me for not voting in primaries. I mean it just doesn’t happen.”
“’It just doesn’t happen?’ Apparently Dr. Carmona, who registered himself as a Democrat a year ago, remains unaware that independents have been allowed to vote in primaries since the law was changed back in 1998,” said Andrew Wilder, communications director for Flake for Senate. “It strikes me that someone seeking to serve in the United States Senate should be better informed.”
