Nor did U.S. Attorney for Arizona Dennis Burke threaten to do this. His letter is being used as a pretext for thwarting the voters. If any further proof was needed, Attorney General Tom Horne says Arizona will not take a position in this matter. Why not? It is state law. He's the attorney general of Arizona. How about supporting the state law? How come these folks go toe to toe with the federal government on immigration and health care but want to bow and kowtow on this particular issue? Hypocrisy.
