Supporters of former state Rep. Liz Harris are irate with the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, and they let the board members know that on Wednesday, with one of them even falsely accusing a Phoenix city councilman of opening the board meeting with a prayer to the devil.
The Arizona House of Representatives ousted Harris on April 12 for inviting a woman to make unfounded criminal claims about state and local officials before a House and Senate elections committee meeting on Feb. 23, then lying to the House Ethics Committee about her prior knowledge of the presentation.
Last week, the GOP precinct committeemen for Legislative District 13, which Harris formerly represented, nominated three people to take Harris’ seat in the legislature. The nominees were Harris herself, alongside two of her allies, Steve Steele and Julie Willoughby. District 13 includes parts of Chandler and Gilbert.
Harris supporters showed up to Wednesday’s Maricopa County Board of Supervisors meeting to throw barbs at the board and to urge its members to reinstate Harris to her seat, something that is highly unlikely.
