State of Arizona breaks silence on madness in 'Nazi'-cop town
Council, chief cop at odds with world since ejecting woman from meeting


The town of Quartzsite, Ariz., has been in the headlines several times lately, and a state investigation was launched after such odd reports as:

    A man was ordered to give up his guns after he allegedly "glared" at a town official.

    A woman was forcibly removed from a public town meeting by police even though the mayor pleaded her cause.

    Some sort of secret decision was made to quit paying the mayor, as police officers were wrongly being fired.

    "Several hundred" emails prompted a declaration of a state of emergency.

Now the state has taken the unusual step of releasing a statement amid its investigation, confirming there is "reasonable cause" to believe officials in Quartzsite, after getting worldwide attention by having officers forcibly remove a woman from speaking at a town-hall meeting, have broken the law.

State Attorney General Tom Horne said about his investigation of Quartzsite:

Normally, we do not release the results of an investigation until it has been completed. However, because this is a matter of unusual public interest, we are prepared to say that, based on review of a video of a July 10 meeting, there is reasonable cause to believe that there has been a violation of the Open Meeting Law, inasmuch as the public was excluded.

The meeting was held under the misconception that an emergency meeting can be conducted without the public present. Independently of the question of whether the town council had a legitimate reason to hold an emergency meeting, even proper emergency meetings must allow the public to be present. The exception is if there is a legitimate basis for an executive session, and the city council did not attempt to hold a proper executive session during the emergency meeting.

The investigation of this and other alleged violations of Open Meeting Laws is ongoing.

The controversy in Quartzsite began June 28 when a fiasco developed at town hall. As shown on YouTube, Jennifer Jones, publisher of the Desert Freedom Press, was physically ousted from a council meeting over the vocal objections of Mayor Ed Foster, who pleaded with his own police not to remove her.

Court intervenes in firings by 'Nazi' police chief
Schedules hearing for evidence in Arizona town fracas


The Quartzsite, Ariz., police officers who were being dismissed by a police chief described by the mayor as a "Nazi" have been ordered by a judge to be reinstated until after a show cause hearing scheduled Aug. 15 and after hearings before a "neutral decisionmaker."

The orders came in two temporary restraining orders issued this week by LaPaz County Superior Court Judge Randolph A. Bartlett, who acted on emergency pleadings by an attorney representing the officers.

The weeks-long confrontation erupted in Quartzsite when city officials ordered police to remove a woman from a town meeting, even though the mayor was pleading her cause.

Most recently, officials with the office of the state attorney general took the unusual step of releasing a statement, confirming there is "reasonable cause" to believe officials in Quartzsite were breaking the law, even though the investigation was not fully finished.

State Attorney General Tom Horne said about his investigation of Quartzsite:

Normally, we do not release the results of an investigation until it has been completed. However, because this is a matter of unusual public interest, we are prepared to say that, based on review of a video of a July 10 meeting, there is reasonable cause to believe that there has been a violation of the Open Meeting Law, inasmuch as the public was excluded.

Quartzsite Police Chief Calls Oath Keepers and Tea Party “Terrorists” and Reports them to the FBI
http://oathkeepers.org/oath/2011/08/05/quartzsite-police-chief-calls-oath-keepers-and-tea-party-%E2%80%9Cterrorists%E2%80%9D-and-reports-them-to-the-fbi/

Oath Keepers Response: “We’re your huckleberries, Chief!”

According to two confirmed eye witnesses, Quartzite Chief of Police Jeff Gilbert referred to the Oath Keepers, the Greater Phoenix Tea Party, and the Sons of Liberty Riders as  “terrorists” during a public “coffee with the Chief” meeting on August 3, 2011.  Reportedly, Chief Gilbert made the reference while discussing the upcoming August 27, 2011 rally that will be carried out by Oath Keepers, the Greater Phoenix Tea Party, and the Sons of Liberty Riders, telling the audience “”I take these terrorist threats very seriously and I have reported them to the FBI and anyone else who will listen.”

This was first reported by the Greater Phoenix Tea Party at http://phoenixteaparty.ning.com/profiles/blogs/greater-phoenix-tea-party-have

A public information request has been filed to secure the video and audio of the meeting.   The Quartzite Chief of police is apparently following the playbook of the Southern Poverty Law Center, DHS, and of political elites, such as Joe Biden who recently compared the Tea Party to “terrorists.”

In response to the alleged statements of Chief Gilbert, Stewart Rhodes, Founder of Oath Keepers, said:

    “If Chief Gilbert wants to label us “terrorists” simply for keeping our oaths to defend the Constitution, by using our natural right of free speech in support of good police officers who refused unlawful orders, and if he is going to label us “terrorists” for simply exercising our First Amendment protected right to peaceably assemble and petition government for a redress of grievances, – all rights that GOOD MEN fought and died to preserve -  well then, all I have to say is “we’re your huckleberries” Chief.  See you in Quartzsite folks!  Our forefathers are watching. - Stewart Rhodes, Founder of Oath Keepers.”

The Oath Keepers are conducting a massive “Quartzsite Liberty Festival” on August 27, 2011 in support of the “Quartzsite Ten” – the oath keeping police officers who blew the whistle on Chief Gilbert for what they describe as gross violations of the rights of the people, including repeated false arrest and harassment of political opponents and abuse of the NCIC background check system to dig up dirt on political opponents and local activists.  Also participating in the rally will be the Greater Phoenix Tea Party, Sons of Liberty Riders, Sons of Liberty, the Campaign for Liberty, and Arizona Ron Paul Meetup Groups, among others.  See http://oathkeepers.org/oath/2011/08/03/oath-keepers-to-muster-quartzsite-arizona-august-27-2011/

Mayor of 'Nazi-cop' town
booted, says election stolen
'They found a whole bunch of early
ballots they could stuff the box with'


The mayor of Quartzsite, Ariz., the town seething in vitriol since police forcibly removed a woman from speaking at a public meeting despite the mayor's objections lost in a recall election last night, but claims the "corrupt" town council fixed the results to force him out.

"They found a whole bunch of early ballots they could stuff the box with," said Mayor Ed Foster, telling WND the election was "absolutely" stolen.

Foster says at the polling place, he was winning by a 2-to-1 margin over former Town Councilman and Quartzsite Fire Department Captain Jose Lizarraga.

But there had been 328 early ballots cast, and 208 of those went to Lizarraga, giving the win to Lizarraga by a final tally of 289 votes to 230.

"There's no doubt about it [being a fixed election]," said Foster. "The early voting was so obscenely different. ... Whether people voted early or late should not have affected the weight of the vote."

But the outcome is not deterring Foster from continuing his fight against alleged corruption in his rural town. In fact, he plans on running again for mayor, as primaries are slated for March, and a general election in May.

"They stole it from me. I'm gonna take it back," he said.

Lawmakers lose election but refuse to leave
Citizens outraged by 'violation of Constitution'


What would happen if an election took place, and the incumbent losers refused to leave office?

That’s exactly the situation in Quartzsite, Ariz., where two winning candidates for the positions of mayor and town councilman are not being allowed to be seated.

Quartzsite is the town that gained national attention last June when police grabbed a woman who was speaking at a town-council meeting and frogmarched her from the event. (Scroll down for video).

The 2012 municipal election took place May 15, but the old town council in Quartzsite has since refused to seat Ed Foster as mayor and Mark Orgeron as councilman.

Foster collected 56 percent of the vote to easily defeat opponent Jerry Lukkasson, but officials claim he cannot be seated because of an unpaid debt to the town, and so Jose Lizarraga remains at the helm for now.

Orgeron defeated Vice Mayor Barbara Cowell, but is not being seated, as officials dispute his residency in the town.

“This is outrageous,” says Chris Rossiter of the Greater Phoenix Tea Party Patriots. “The tea party will not tolerate corruption in public office.”

A rally is being held today at the Arizona Capitol Senate building to express support for Foster and Orgeron, as well as disdain for the councilmembers who lost and refuse to go.

Meanwhile, Orgeron has filed federal legal action, looking for a judge to force the incumbents from office.

Among the points mentioned in his complaint, Orgeron says both he and Ed Foster are legally qualified to be lawmakers in the town, and are, in fact, the legitimate officeholders now since they won the election, with their terms starting immediately.

“The mayor is no longer the mayor of the town, and cannot legitimately exercise the powers of office, and the vice mayor is no longer the vice mayor of the town or a member of the town council and cannot legitimately exercise the powers of office,” the complaint states.


Ed Foster
The Arizona Republic reported Foster has filed papers asking La Paz County Attorney Sam Vederman to file a writ under a state law allowing a court to remove usurpers from public office and seat a legitimate candidate.

Vederman told the paper the situation in Quartzsite is volatile, and that he worries about violence breaking out.

“We’re exploring the entire situation,” Vederman said. “A lot of people are concerned there could be violations (of Arizona law). I just want everyone to remain calm.”

Orgeron, 50, maintains he is indeed a resident of Quartzsite, having moved there in July 2009, and says he has “been a resident of the town continuously since then.”

He is currently the head teacher at Quartzsite Elementary School.

“I believe the current town council and city government have stifled the voters,” Orgeron told the Republic. “We need to turn that town back over to the people.”

Vice Mayor Cowell says Foster was disqualified because he did not pay court-ordered attorney fees from a lawsuit he lost against the town.

In recent years, Quartzsite adopted an rule banning municipal debtors from holding office, but many dispute the legality of such a law, claiming it violates the rights of both voters and candidates.

Tim Casey, a Phoenix attorney who practices election law, told the Republic that under Quartzsite’s ordinance, a resident could not hold office if he or she had an unpaid traffic ticket or was contesting a municipal fee.

“I would think there would be a number of constitutional problems with that,” Casey said. “It would seem to be an impermissible limitation on public service and a violation of the will of voters.”

Quartzsite’s population is estimated by the Census Bureau to be less than 4,000, and there were only 706 ballots cast in last month’s mayoral race.

Town Manager Alex Taft said this week that 168 votes are under investigation for possible fraud.

Cowell told the Republic she and other incumbents believe “something is not right” because about 300 new voters registered before the election, including some staying on federal lands.

“We have proof that there were (three) people who were dead who voted,” Cowell added.

As WND reported last summer, Quartzsite gained national attention when a YouTube video surfaced showing local resident Jennifer Jones being forcibly removed from a council meeting while she had the floor during the public-speaking portion of the event.

When WND asked Jones about the councilmembers, she said, “I liken them to monkeys in the zoo. They make a lot of noise and throw a lot of feces around, but at the end of the day they’re just primates and don’t deserve to be writing checks for [a town of] about 3,800 people. They don’t deserve to be managing money. They don’t act like they’re at the top of the food chain. It’s embarrassing.”
