According to Jerry Peacemaker, “Maricopa County Recorder Helen Purcell was married to Phoenix City Attorney (and late) Joe R. Purcell, not the late Lieutenant Governor of Arkansas Joe Purcell. The coincidence was amazing, but they are not the same woman. My apology.”
But that was an amazing coincidence; Voter fraud on a grand scale in the form of voter suppression, and a woman named Helen Purcell. What a coincidence!
Purcell closed 140 of the 200 polling places in Maricopa County, despite an increase of anticipated voters from 300,000 in 2012 to 800,000 in 2016.
By the way, although Hillary won the Democratic Primary in Arizona, she did so on the basis of mailed in ballots. Bernie won 52 percent of the vote of those who showed up to vote, compared to 48 percent for Hillary. This massive voter suppression thus benefited Hillary. The fewer people who showed up to vote, the greater was Hillary’s lead.
By the way, notice in the video above that Purcell blames voters for the long lines because they had the audacity to show up and exercise their constitutional right to vote.
Purcell is a registered Republican.
