Republican, Liz Harris, in her 3 month, 3 day term as LD 13 Representative, was expelled last week from the House of Representatives, with a vote of 46 for expulsion and 13 against. This was more than the required 2/3 House vote and more than enough to oust Liz from her seat. Liz is now in a runoff with two others, Steve Steele and Julie Willoughby. One of these three will be decided upon by Maricopa County Board of Supervisors on Monday, April 24th at 1PM.
Of our two representatives here in LD7, David Marshall voted YES, and David Cook voted NO on expulsion. Liz was surprised at Marshall’s NO vote.
This past Monday, the 17th, the AZ GOP LD13 vote to select 3 nominees from LD13 that would move forward to the BOS. The vote went as follows, and shows that Liz is the preferred nominee. First round: Liz Harris 107; Julie Willoughby 95, and Steve Steele 73. Six others received much lower votes. Liz and Julie moved forward. In the 2nd round, Steve Steele had 86 votes and the next closest of the remaining five had 25, moving Liz, Julie and Steve forward to the vote on the 24th. Later that night, this reporter received a text from Liz stating, “Will the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors return Liz Harris’ duly elected seat to her?”
This whole debacle began February 23rd of this year with explosive testimony at the Arizona Joint Elections Committee Hearing from Jacqueline Breger, a principal investigator for Attorney John Thaler, of the Harris/Thaler Law Corporation. Breger was a last minute substitute for one of five witnesses Representative Harris had lined up to testify at the hearing regarding election integrity.
For the last 4 years, Breger and Thaler have been investigating and compiling a many-years long, multi-state racketeering and corruption operation involving drug cartel money in the purchases of single-family homes, beginning in 2006 in Illinois and making its way to Iowa and eventually, further West to properties in Maricopa and Pima counties, as well as several other counties.
Alleged fake notarizations, fake deeds of trust and fraudulent buyers and/or sellers of real property transactions amounted to a grand and far-reaching money laundering scheme involving mortgage companies, title and escrow companies, real estate brokers, real estate inspection companies and more.
In reviewing over 120,000 documents by Thaler and herself, Ms. Breger claimed evidence of narcotics sales, bankruptcy fraud, tax evasion, payroll theft, money laundering, car insurance fraud, life insurance fraud and bribing of elected and appointed officials, and last but not least, election fraud.
Names and positions of prominent figures in Arizona, such as the Mesa Chief of Police and several police officers, as well as Katie Hobbs, Adrian Fontes, Doug Ducey, 3 members of Maricopa County BOS, House Speaker Ben Toma, and other state lawmakers and many more were said to have taken bribes from the Sinaloa Cartel.
Liz had advised Ms. Breger to only speak on election integrity, but the 20 minutes Breger was allotted turned into 45 minutes of astronomical revelations of corruption in real estate transactions and more, mixed with drug dealings and money laundering schemes, along with evidence of election fraud. Liz has said that she was surprised at the ability of Breger to continue with content outside of election integrity.
Emotions were high in the House and Liz soon found herself under investigation for bringing in Ms. Breger to testify, with the House claiming Liz had lied about not knowing Ms. Breger was going to bring up all these accusations and the naming of names. Representative Harris was blamed by House Speaker, Ben Toma for “bad judgement” in inviting anyone “to present unsubstantiated and defamatory allegations in a legislative forum.” The House Ethics Committee determined that Liz had violated House Rule 1 and committed “disorderly behavior”. State Representative Joseph Chaplik, Chairman of said committee, put out several public statements that Liz has publicly refuted in interviews on Lindell TV and elsewhere. And, the Az House did not even follow up on the allegations of the proposed pervasive fraud and corruption!
Though Chaplik acknowledged the disorderly behavior violation by Harris, he did not vote for her expulsion, and declined to dole out disciplinary recommendation, saying he disagreed with the expulsion and that it was not the right punishment. Chaplik also said that the 60 members of the House should have the responsibility of carrying out any discipline, not just 3 to 5 members of the committee. He said other avenues could have been pursued such as censoring Liz or taking her off the Senate Election Committee. Sadly, there is no appeals process available for Liz.
We shall now see what happens with the vote on Monday with the Maricopa County BOS. This reporter has her suspicions!
As a side-note, in 2021, this reporter was involved with about 23 other people in a canvass of 300+ homes/voters in the Payson area, initiated by Liz Harris, where we knocked on doors and queried these voters with specific questions on their experience with the 2020 election process. Several other AZ counties did the same, and we found countless anomalies: active voters listed at particular addresses who had relocated several years before; deceased voters, some who had passed up to 4-12 years prior; names that were unknown at certain addresses; a vacant lot in Payson that had 7 voters registered there, etc.
These were very interesting and troubling findings and proof that our elections are and have been experiencing serious issues. It’s not over yet…we are still working to right these wrongs and with Harris being shut down and ousted, does this not send a message to other truth-seeking souls that they’d better watch their tone, toe the line, and stick to a particular narrative, a narrative that We The People don’t matter? This is repulsive!
More on Representative Liz Harris’ wrongful expulsion next issue, as well as more on a new canvassing project being organized in this county.
A very good summary of the testimony can be read in The Liberty Daily dated Feb. 25, 2023, by J.D Rucker. The full video of Breger’s testimony is there also.
