Good job McCain RINOS in Arizona you got what you voted for.
Newly elected Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes has declared that she will not enforce the state’s abortion laws.
“I have been clear that we are not going to prosecute doctors and women in the state of Arizona for abortion, period,” Mayes said. “[Abortion] is not a place for government intervention … prosecutorial resources should not be spent on trying to put doctors in jail.’’
Mayes’ announcement took place after newly elected Democrat Governor Katie Hobbs issued an executive order centralizing the power to enforce abortion laws taking it away from locally elected prosecutors.
“The Attorney General shall assume all duties with regard to any criminal prosecution of a medical provider … for violation of any State law restricting or prohibiting abortion care … without limitation,” Hobbs’ executive order says.
“This is an extraordinary situation. The U.S. Supreme Court overturned a right we had for 50 years. Arizonans elected a Democratic governor and AG who are pro-choice, and elections have consequences. Some Republicans are unhappy about it, but this is a consequence of Dobbs,” Mayes told the Daily Beast.
Prosecutors around the state are considering litigation over the governors power grab.
“Our current governor took an entire category of potential offenses,” Maricopa County prosecutor Rachel Mitchell said, “and is attempting to prevent locally elected county attorneys from reviewing and making charging decisions in those matters.”
What has even moderate prosecutors worried is the precedent Hobbs is setting.
“What happens when another person occupies the governor’s seat and attempts this kind of power grab?” she asked. “What other set of offenses might a governor in the future not like and remove from local prosecutors?”
Republicans who hold the majority of the State Legislator have canceled all of Hobbs’ nominees in response to the power grab.
“You hold the office of Governor in Arizona, not of monarch,” GOP state senators wrote in a letter to Hobbs, calling the executive order a “blatant disregard for separation of powers.”
You get what you vote for.
Arizona McCain RINOS could have pushed Kari Lake over the edge overcoming the nonsense but instead, they stayed home because of their TDS. Now they have a Whitmer on their hands.
Instead of trying to change the law the Democrats have seized power and ignored the law ruling like a monarchy,
