Compiled list of County Supervisors' wasteful spending, power grabs, and criminal investigations

"Maricopa County has become the new Chicago when it comes to corruption in politics"

One of our readers has compiled a list of the wasteful pork spending by the Maricopa County Supervisors, their power grabs with other county officials, and the current criminal investigations into them. We are happy to post it on our site and will update it as we receive new info. They must be held accountable and the public has a right to know what their money is being spent on and the way they are treating other county officials and agencies. When it comes time for elections, this list will be available so voters can make an informed decision as to whether they want these Chicago-style politicians reelected or not.
