Why I Cannot Support Adam Kwasman For CD1

By Elisha Dorfsmith

Oro Valley State Representative Adam Kwasman recently formed an exploratory committee to run for Arizona’s Congressional District 1. Kwasman is slowly but surely working toward an official run. Behind the scenes, the National GOP is quietly paving the way for the Republican candidates in CD1.

Along with the promise of extra support and funding in CD1, the National organization has also pushed Arizona Republicans behind the scenes to pass election law changes that eliminate competition and destroy third parties in Arizona. These changes were recently signed into law by Governor Brewer.

According to azcentral.com, Kwasman makes no effort to hide his strategy to use these new election changes to his advantage. If what they say is true, he clearly expresses that he has no trouble trampling anybody who gets in the way of his desired victory:

“To underscore the political ramifications of HB 2305 and its effect on minor-party candidates, Pierce said an angry state Rep. Adam Kwasman, R-Oro Valley, confronted him after the bill failed. Kwasman said he needed it to pass because he plans to run in CD1 next year, Pierce said.

Kwasman did not return a call seeking comment.”

I don’t trust AZCentral or Steve Pierce so I will leave a little bit of room for Adam Kwasman to explain himself and deny this. Kwasman has thrown up several red flags already (worked for the RAND Corporation etc.) but this one, if true, is unforgivable.

As I have reported in the past, Republicans still blame Libertarians and Ron Paul supporters for Jonathan Paton’s loss to Ann Kirkpatrick in the last election cycle. They say the Libertarian candidate robbed them of their votes. There are a lot of entitlement mentality Republican crybabies who actually think that they own your vote. These politicians believe you’re too stupid to check the right box so they should do it for you by deleting those distracting other options.

My post here will not make me any friends in the Republican party (it will probably make me quite a few enemies) but I believe in integrity and fighting for what’s right above all else.

If Kwasman really is banking on these changes to the law to help him win then he will never have my support.

10-03-2013 UPDATE:

Kwasman has told me personally that Steve Pierce and/ or AZ Central are lying about his statement to Pierce. I asked Kwasman to issue a public statement saying the accusations are untrue and he refused. Until Kwasman goes on the record refuting these claims he will be held accountable and this issue will haunt him throughout his campaign.

My impression is that Pierce and AZ Central are telling the truth and it was only when Kwasman realized what a bad political move this was that he started backtracking.

Where’s the public statement Adam? Waiting waiting waiting!

    I suggest you stop focusing on single mistakes and instead work together with other members of our community to support a candidate who will better all members of our community instead of just one group. Liberty is justice…not brainwashing.

      Ashley, Kwasman only admitted his vote for this was a mistake AFTER he realized it was going to referendum. His goal was to get rid of third party candidates. Bruce Barton admitted to us at the County Fair that the goal of HB2305 was to get rid of Libertarian candidates. If Adam wants us to believe him he and Bruce need to get on the same page.
