NAPOLITANO WOULD LEAVE HER HOMELAND INSECURE

Brad Blog - Nothing against Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano (D), but moving her to head of Homeland Security in the Obama Administration would be an enormous mistake, at least for the voters of Arizona who would be stuck with the horrible Sec. of State Jan Brewer (R) as Governor. AZ has no Lieutenant Governor, so the rightwing loon Brewer --- one of the worst Secretaries of State in the nation --- would take the helm and serve as Sarah Palin to the state's slim Republican majority in the legislature should Napolitano take over at DHS as has been reported.

Brewer signed the contract to bring unverifiable Diebold touch-screen voting systems into the state, long after they had been shown by computer scientists and security experts to be inaccurate, unreliable and easily tampered with. She has been aggressively opposed to virtually every move towards transparency and citizen oversight in her state's elections, in favor of purges and restrictions against legal voters at the polls, and even went as far as to publicly call her own citizens who spoke up against her embrace of the use of unverifiable Diebold voting machines "anarchists" and "conspiracy theorists".

No matter how wonderful Napolitano might be in the role of DHS --- and we've got no opinion on that either way --- the citizens of Arizona, many of whom fought like hell for the election of Barrack Obama, even in John McCain's home state, do not deserve what they would be left with back home if she went to Washington.
