5 Outrageous Examples of Voter Suppression in the Arizona Primary (Zach Cartwright | March 23, 2016)
“During last night’s primary, Arizona election officials showed America what textbook voter suppression looks like. While Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump both won their respective primaries, the lingering questions of voter disenfranchisement will mar those victories.
“1. Lines were so long people literally spent an entire work day waiting in line… 2. Clear voter suppression in Latino neighborhoods… 3. Democrats mistakenly registered as independents, given provisional ballots… 4. Suspicious evacuations of county buildings at peak voting times… 5. Calling Arizona for Hillary Clinton while people were still in line…
“Many on social media are crying foul over the incompetent primary process. A Whitehouse.gov petition has been launched calling on the Obama administration to investigate the claims of voter suppression during the Arizona primary.

All Hell Is Breaking Loose at Arizona Election Fraud Hearing (Nathan Wellman | March 28, 2016)
“A raucous hearing on election fraud in the Arizona primary is still going on in Phoenix. As of this writing, the hearing was moved to a separate room and is currently in recess due to continued outbursts of protest in the gallery.
“…, it’s clear that the people of Arizona have no intention of forgiving or forgetting, given the anger expressed by those who signed up to speak on alleged election fraud. The rowdy crowd is parading up to speak in large numbers, calling for Purcell’s resignation and for a revote.
“Air Force veteran Dean Palmer described his horrific experience voting in Maricopa County. “My experience down there, it was tough… People in wheelchairs and canes in the heat… We were out of provisional ballots at 7am… So many people, they wheeled up there and got hit with the sprinklers. So many people, they couldn’t take it. They had to leave, people were crying.”
“Arizona State Representative Jonathan Larkin (D-Glendale) is the only member of the hearing who has openly called for Purcell to resign. He demanded to know how voters can get in touch with Purcell after the hearing. When she advised them to go to her website, he dryly asked, “And you’re ready for the flow this time?”
“The tone of the election fraud hearing is summed up best by a citizen who said, “The corruption has become so prevalent, that you became comfortable, and you became so comfortable, that you became lazy, and you became so lazy, that you got caught. You (Purcell) are a snake in the grass and we see you!””
