The state Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that political candidates can accept much larger sums of money from donors.
Gov. Jan Brewer is willing to give Clarence Carter the benefit of the doubt about his culpability in more than 6,500 complaints of child abuse going uninvestigated — at least for the time being.
Reactionary Republicans — notably Rush Limbaugh — condemning the Senate’s limitation on filibustering as unconstitutional have, once again, displayed their colossal political ignorance. There is only a single clause, “Each House may determine its own rules,” (Art. I, Sect. 5) remotely concerned with filibusters, and it neither approves nor disapproves of them. The Senate’s action on filibusters was undeniably constitutional to anyone with high-school reading comprehension.
Dec. 14 marks the one-year anniversary of the tragic shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. After that tragedy the entire country wanted to know how such a terrible thing could happen. And more importantly, how can we prevent it from ever happening again?
Gov. Jan Brewer is weighing whether the troubled Child Protective Services needs to be split into a separate agency headed by someone who reports directly to her.

Calling the Arizona legislation constitutionally flawed, proponents of abortion rights on Monday urged the U.S. Supreme Court to block the state from enforcing a ban on the procedure at 20 weeks.
I can’t imagine being a Child Protective Services (CPS) caseworker. But I can imagine why most of those men and women went into those jobs: an idealistic view that their work could make a difference in children’s lives, maybe save some kids from horrible fates, maybe find ways to change a dysfunctional family into a loving one.
Hundreds of parents, foster parents, current and former Child Protective Services (CPS) employees and child advocates showed up Tuesday night when the public had a chance to offer constructive ideas to five members of the CPS Oversight Committee.
Supporters of the Independent Redistricting Commission want a federal court to rule that the Arizona Legislature has no right to challenge the voter-approved law.
The state Court of Appeals will decide whether groups that run commercials publicly criticizing elected officials and candidates right before an election have to disclose their donors.
Advocates for Comprehensive Immigration Reform (English translation: amnesty) like to point out that immigrants in the past have flocked to America and made important contributions to our nation. That’s true, but the America of 1913 was different from 2013 in ways that greatly affect the probability that immigrants will become contributing citizens.

Just when you thought you had the president’s health care law figured out, it’s changing.
Even though Arizona is generally considered a “red” state, I’d like to thank all those who voted for Barack Obama, especially those who re-elected him. I voted for the other guy, both times. And thanks for putting all of those Democrat senators and representatives into Congress.
By the time you’re reading this, our little friends in Congress will have either settled their political hash and come up with a budget and gotten the government back to work or we’ll all be huddled around a trash can fire in a desolated parking lot, fighting for road kill in a post-apocalyptic, dystopian society.
After plenty of haggling, and a fair amount of political theater, Congress reached a last-minute agreement to raise the debt ceiling and end the partial government shutdown. Most people would agree that a fully functioning government that can pay its bills on time is a positive thing — and it’s certainly good news for investors, because a default on the part of the U.S. government could have had serious repercussions in the financial markets. But what’s next?
“Keep Kyrene Strong.” You’ve seen the bright yellow signs on prominent corners in the Kyrene corridor, but what does that mean, exactly?
The monthly meeting of Democrats and Donuts, hosted by LD 18 Democrats, featured guest speaker Mary Berg on Wednesday morning at Biscuits in Ahwatukee.
If I had a nickel for every vote that ultimately defeated last November’s Maintenance and Operation Budget Override request for the Tempe Union High School District, I still wouldn’t have enough money to buy my wife and daughter a ticket to the movies, popcorn and drinks.
Ahwatukee Foothills resident Jill Norgaard has filed to run in the 2014 election for Legislative District 18 House of Representatives. Norgaard has been involved in politics for a number of years as a precinct committeeman, precinct captain, state committeeman, third vice president for the local Republican Women’s Club, and a graduate from the Dodie Londen Public Service Class in 2011.
Tom Patterson shamefully degrades our elected President in his extreme right wing “Tea Party” fashion. His articles are so far to the right they are offensive to those of us whom respect President Obama, as he was elected President by “We the people.” God bless America.
