Losing Arizona: Is Sen. Kelly Townsend an Insurrectionist?

Sen. Kelly Townsend grew up in Oregon before enlisting in the US Navy. She served for four years and went on to obtain a master’s degree from Arizona State University. Townsend, who resides in Mesa, was first elected to the Arizona House of Representatives in 2013. She was elected to the Senate in 2020, representing District 16, which covers east Mesa and Apache Junction.

Contributions to the Insurrection

Townsend was a major supporter of the “Stop the Steal” movement, which falsely claimed then-President Donald Trump won the election both in Arizona and nationally.

Townsend, alongside numerous other state Republicans, signed on to a letter to Congress asking lawmakers to accept 11 “alternate” electoral votes for Trump or to have all of the state’s electoral votes “nullified completely until a full forensic audit can be conducted.”

She was one of the Republican lawmakers who attended an unofficial November daylong hearing at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Phoenix where Trump lawyers Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis continuously made unsubstantiated claims of widespread fraud.

1. she deletes her nasty tweets..............





....She was one of the Republican lawmakers who attended an unofficial November daylong hearing at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Phoenix where Trump lawyers Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis continuously made unsubstantiated claims of widespread fraud.

Following the insurrection, Townsend said in a since-deleted tweet that the rioters learned their behavior from “the Left” before questioning whether they were the real culprits behind the storming of the Capitol.

In another deleted tweet, Townsend blamed Gov. Doug Ducey for the violence, saying that he failed to initiate a full forensic audit of the election.

“(W)hen the people have had enough, you cannot act pious and holier than thou when the people revolt… (D)on’t act like this isn’t in large part, your fault,” she wrote.

2. The basic rule of thumb is: If it walks like an insurrectionist and talks like an

insurrectionist then it IS an insurrectionist. Lock him/her/them up!

3. The East Valley gave Arizona that perennial embarrassment Joe Arpaio

She is just a long line of Arizonans that gives Arizona a black eye. . .like Kelli Ward, Becky Nutt, Paul Gosar, Andy Biggs, and my soon to be opponent, Joel John.
