Judge Denies Challenges to Recall Election of SB1070 Sponsor

An Arizona judge has agreed to move forward with the recall election of Sen. Russell Pearce (R), sponsor of the state’s controversial anti-immigrant law SB 1070. 

As reported in La Plaza earlier this summer, the group Citizens for a Better Arizona filed a petition for a recall election against Pearce and his divisive politics. They gathered double the amount of signatures required to submit the petition in efforts to improve the quality of life for all residents in the state.

Superior Court Judge Hugh Hegyi rejected all the arguments by Pearce’s attorney Lisa Hauser, that challenged the recall petition, specifically those that questioned the validity of the signatures collected.

The November 8 recall election is expected to move forward as planned.
