Opinion: A member of the Arizona Legislature proudly boasts of membership in an organization linked to the Jan. 6 insurrection and we hear nothing?

We’ve known for a long time that state Sen. Wendy Rogers has a warped – if not completely untethered — grasp on history, patriotism, civility and public service.
We’ve known as well that the ugly, conspiracy-based campaign style she used to get elected, after a decade of trying, so alienated the other Republican from her district, Rep. Walter Blackman, that he told the Arizona Capitol Times he would not campaign with her.
He said, “If I don’t agree with the type of representation that she is going to give, based on her history, then, I’m not going to vote for her either. The main goal for Wendy Rogers is to get to Congress, and you can put that in your paper.”
On Saturday, Rogers proudly posted a tweet about speaking to the Cottonwood Oathkeepers, a right-wing militia group tied to the Capitol insurrection. Rogers is a member.
To repeat. She is a member.
