Rep. Bob Thorpe (R-Flagstaff) and Rep. Isela Blanc (D-Tempe)

Leaders ‘babysit’ personality conflict between Blanc and Thorpe

Legislative leaders are babysitting two members on a House committee after a passive-aggressive confrontation between them during a public meeting.

Senior members of both parties have been observing the House Federalism, Property Rights and Public Policy Committee since early February after freshman Democrat Isela Blanc, D-Tempe, alleged Chairman Bob Thorpe, R-Flagstaff, treated her unfairly.

Blanc, the only woman on the committee at the time of her complaint, accused Thorpe of treating her differently than her male counterparts, often attempting to cut her off during discussions and not holding her to the same standards as others on the committee, Minority Leader Rebecca Rios said.
