Ken Bennett needs to pick one job: AZ Sec'y of State or AZ Romney Chair

      Phoenix, AZ

Ken Bennett is the top election official in Arizona. It is inappropriate and unethical for him to hold a position in any campaign, let alone the Presidential race. How can we trust that voting rights will be protected when the Secretary of State has a vested interest in the outcome of the election? The answer is we can't. 

When Katherine Harris held the same positions in Florida in 2000 - Secretary of State and George W. Bush campaign chair - there were numerous and outrageous irregularities with that election, including thousands of legitimate voters getting purged from the rolls in a blatant strategy of suppressing the opposition's voters.

Ken Bennett must pick one position:. Arizona Secretary of State OR Mitt Romney's AZ Campaign chair. He can't be both and maintain personal integrity and our faith in the integrity of the system.

      It should be illegal for an official in charge of oversight of elections to hold a position in a partisan campaign, no matter the party. At the very least, it gives the appearance of a conflict of interest.

      It is an outrageous conflict of interest for the state's top election official to be actively involved campaigning for a candidate.

      This is an outrageous conflict of interest.

      It is a conflict of interest for Ken. After the recent birther stunt, Ken Bennett definitely does not appear to be the the Sec'y of State for all Arizonans.
