Governor Jan Brewer Loses Her Head in Arizona
As New Video & Report Show, Governor’s Debate Stumble Just the Latest in Pattern
WASHINGTON - After getting her head handed to her in a debate this week, Gov. Jan Brewer (R-AZ) has become prime fodder for late night comedians and political satirists.
However, as a new report and video
from America's Voice make clear, Gov. Brewer has a long history of
purporting falsehoods and defending the indefensible. Given her lead
role in supporting Arizona's "papers please" immigration law, not all of
Gov. Brewer's bizarre behavior is funny -- though you can't help
laughing at the sheer audacity and ridiculousness of many of her
claims. Whether it's calling the majority of immigrants drug mules or
fabricating beheadings by immigrants in the Arizona desert, Gov.
Brewer's occasional relationship with the truth is worth a closer look.

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever
Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
