Ain't that a kick in the head

Ouch. Governor Jan Brewer smacks Dean Martin down for his spending record in the State Senate. Ain't that a kick in the head!

Wait till they look at his 2004 campaign finance reports.

Martin funneled over $19,000 in campaign contributions through two front companies he controlled, that were based in a rented mail drop at Paradise Valley Mall, into his own pocket and also spent around $12,000 of campaign funds on various electronic and computer equipment for himself. The vast majority of those campaign funds came from lobbyist with business before the legislature. Dean Martin turned his public office as a state senator into a profit making entity for himself. Anyone see a conflict of interest with Martin converting campaign contributions from lobbyist into cash for his own pocket?

Ask Dean Martin to open the books of the two companies he controlled, Digital Print Design and Grassroots Programs. Let us see some invoices and purchase orders for paper, ink and supplies, Martin can't because both companies were phony and just used to wash his campaign funds. Why did he have no telephone listing, web site or any advertising for these companies? Who were his customers and suppliers?

What about taxes. Did Martin pay any taxes on these two income sources? Is our state treasurer a tax cheat?

Dean Martin, a name we know too well to trust.
