By Bob Haran;
A candidate for appointment to the Arizona Senate to fill the vacancy caused by Pamela Gorman's resignation is found to be not the "Proven Conservative" she claims to be, unless being pro-abortion is now considered Conservative. Lori Klein, who listed her political views on face book as Libertarian/Conservative, seems to be more Libertarian then Conservative.
When I first heard that a Lori Klein was interested in the LD 6 Senate seat my first question was, who is Lori Klein. She is not a Precinct Committeemen from LD 6, not active in the district, never been to a district meeting that I know of. So who is this person Lori Klein?
Time to do some old fashioned research. What did I discover about this Lori Klein, whom both LD 6 Representatives Sam Crump and Carl Seel have been pushing as a replacement to Pam Gorman, a conservative Republican and certainly pro-life. I discovered she is what we conservatives used to describe as a RINO, a Republican In Name Only.
Oh, Ms Klein is for less government, what Republican isn't? Lori Klein is also for the right of a woman to kill her unborn child and backs it up with her money.
Looking at where people put their money politically can tell a lot about where they stand politically. Take for example Lori Klein, according to the Arizona Secretary of State's web site, on 9/10/04, she contributed to WISH LIST (Women In The Senate and House). On the WISH LIST web site, http://www.thewishlist.org/ they describe their MISSION with these words, "The WISH LIST raises funds to identify, support and elect PRO-CHOICE Republican women at all levels of government - local, state and national" Under the title "OUR VISION for the 21st Century" WISH LIST says, "Our vision is to create a powerful force of Political Partners whose financial support ensures the continuous election of PRO-CHOICE Republican women to positions at all levels of government across America." Sounds like a very militant PRO-ABORTION group to me.
You can also find Ms. Klein's contribution to the Pro-Abortion movement by going to the WISH LIST post-primary Election Report for 2004, her name is on page 4 just above Beth Meyer of Planned Parenthood.
So why is Sam Crump endorsing this supporter of abortion, saying that he, "believes her to be a strong conservative voice for our district and our state." Could it be Crump is supporting her because she owns a consulting firm specializing in fund-raising. By the way, Sam Crump will be resigning from the Arizona House to run for Congress.
Seems like some people will believe anything, if the price is right.
