Some Issues Need to be Pointed Out BY RANDY MILLER, LD 21 Part of a series of articles covering the entire field of candidates running to replace Trent Franks in the House of Representatives in Metro Phoenix's CD8 congressional district.
The CD 8 seat recently vacated by Trent Franks is a serious position. With everything we face in terms of corruption and crimes in Washington, we need an independent thinking, un-beholding, knowledgeable person with strength and determination to honestly represent our values while there. Voters need to check out all of these candidates, then decide which one they prefer.
Steve Montenegro is a candidate for Congress. He continually boasts he is of “Constitutional” mindset and knowledge. I like Steve and believe he is a good man. However, I believe his understanding of the Constitution, and his position as a legislator with political integrity is seriously lacking. I have had several conversations with him while visiting his LD 13. He stood up in front of the group, trying to explain why he co-sponsored the Popular Vote for President and stumbled over questions. I stood and asked why he supports destroying the Republic and our sovereignty and he told us that wasn’t happening. I asked him who was superior, the federal government or the states? He said the federal government. I informed him how he was wrong with constitution references and he then said “Well, we are equal”. Really? Once again, I stood in front of the group and challenged his take on this. Is this who we want to send to Washington?
If you are running for legislator of any state and will be taking the oath to support the constitution, then you damn well better Read it; Know it, and Understand it. How can you be in the state legislature for over 8 years (each time promise to defend the constitution) and co-sponsor HB 2456, Agreement with the States to Elect the President by National Popular Vote? Unforgivable! There were 45 legislators who co-sponsored this garbage, shameful. Most were Republican. You can find them here:
Then Saturday evening, January 13, 2018, he goes on radio with John Rosato and claims he didn’t support this Bill. This isn’t honest. Although Steve later changed his mind, just presenting it, demonstrates complete ignorance and a willingness to steal your sovereignty and independence. Not to mention the entire bill was unconstitutional since the Electoral College is IN THE CONSTITUTION and requires a constitutional amendment which no one in their right mind would support. Maybe 2 campaign donations totaling $1830, from Constantine Querard and another $1284 Lisa Querard, Constantine’s wife. See https://followthemoney.org/entity-details?eid=6676721&default=candidate
