Another bang up job by the GOPe!! On Primary Day in Arizona, many voters waited in line upwards of 5 HOURS to vote.
This clusterfark was created by the decision of the Maricopa County Recorders Office to close 70% of the polling stations that had been open in the 2012 Presidential Preference Primary. So instead of 300 polling locations in Maricopa County, there were ….60.

Now Purcell has done a truly horrible job defending this decision, and she blamed it on VOTERS!!
…Purcell initially put the blame on voters, stirring a clamor on the Internet. Her name was a trending topic on Twitter. But Wednesday she backtracked, saying she failed to anticipate the effect of intense voter interest on primary turnout.
“I made bad decisions based on the information I had, obviously, or we wouldn’t have had long lines,” Purcell told The Associated Press.
Now watch this bait and switch, emphasis mine:
In the 2012 presidential primary, there were 200 places for voters to cast ballots in the county, which is heavily Republican. By comparison, Pima County — home to more liberal Tucson, Arizona, and a quarter of Maricopa County’s population — had 124 voting locations Tuesday….
WAIT WAIT WAIT!!!! They just said Maricopa County IS HEAVILY REPUBLICAN! and that PIMA is liberal!! Yes!! and Maricopa County had the closed sites!! Pima county was all OPEN!!!!!!!!!!
