"Geez. Thank goes over. And he doesn't stay because you said it's too hot in here. I bet. A sweat lodge. Shorts and flip flops. He says out on the patio looking. Former Arizona governor Jan brewer MAC and Gaydos, political insider every Wednesday, let's get to some local politics. It seems that this get out of jail free card that legislators have they the Bill for legislative immunity is dead. We had Paul Moseley that guy was driving ninety seven and a fifty five we had Representative David caulk. He was drunk off his rear end. He pulled the, hey, do you know where I am. I do you know who I am. I've got legislative immunity. Why are these legislators? Why are they so stupid? Well, I think that most of all the legislators there are sitting in that building would not do that. I think that they would be totally embarrassed to pull out the immunity card. But this story is not new something has been gone on in Arizona for a long time. And but the bottom line in regards to it. I think is that it's in the constitution of errors Zona. It was put in there during the old cowboy days, but it also protects the legislators from what I understood that it hits legislators being sued for actions and decisions that they make and of course of their governing. And I you know, I have not went back and looked at the constitution on this issue. But that was always my impression, but the majority of the legislators, they don't do it. And it doesn't prohibit prosecution. It doesn't prohibit that. I mean, they can they can still prosecute. You think that it's depends on who? And what officer stopping you? And how he feels that day. Go ninety seven miles an hour down there freeway and cops an attitude. They're going to get arrested. If you're going to be driving drunk, you're going to get arrested. If you getting up a fist fight or are you involved? You have to start a battery you're going to get arrested. I remember when I was in the house of representatives. There was a rural legislator. They got arrested. And they would let them come out to vote on the floor and then take him back to jail. Oh, really? Yeah. Homo after that was like an eighty two or eighty three, you know. So you know, it's been going on. But these are rendered stories that we hear about people saying, I mean, nobody in the right mind that is an elected official will tell a von forcement officer. I've got legislative immunity. I mean, I was the officer either restaurant on the spot. I think it's much broader than that. And it was always my impression when I I wouldn't do the legislature that it was you know, it was in effect because of the not being sued for your actions and decisions that lets us included in it. So maybe it involves a lot more than just saying, I've got legislative unity. I mean, most people wouldn't want to humiliate their body that they serve in by saying, I'm a legislator. I've been elected by the people of Arizona. And this is how I asked former governor of Arizona MAC and Gaydos, political insider, Jan brewer joins us as she does every Wednesday. But aren't you disappointed that it didn't even get out of committee? I mean, even the governor said, you know, what it's time has come. We don't need it anymore. This is an antiquated law. Get it out, and it didn't even get out of committee. So now, they look like, yeah, we're gonna keep it because we want to get out of jail, look bad. Yeah. Well, the he must have a reason for it. Because it could become a three ring circus down there in regards to something like this. Because I don't know if everybody really is read the constitution and how it's worded in there. And I did at one time. But I can't remember it clearly, but I do remember sitting in orientation and that coming up, and we thought well that that makes sense. But of course, they're not above the law. They're not above the lie. And maybe the speaker decided that he didn't want to have a circus going on if the public wants to do away with it. You know, it's a it's in the cross Joosten. I can put it on the ballot. Even if they pass a Bill have to go on the ballot. Then, you know, and there there you go for election to coming up. So they might not want that on the ballot at the same time because all of the election rhetoric, but I'll turn into legislative immunity. I mean as speaker Doris president you have an obligation to protect your members. I mean that's their job. And I think that's probably what a speaker. But ours is doing. Former Arizona governor Jan brewer joins us yesterday. Governor Ducey joins us for his monthly exclusive interview. What he told us was he said the families at hacienda healthcare want it to stay open. And I had not heard that before. So I don't know if the governor spoke to them personally, but the families don't want their loved ones moved out of hacienda. Governor is that a good enough reason for it to stay open. I think that and I can understand families not wanting to move their fragile loved ones and into facilities because they do deserve the very best care. They're very vulnerable. It's a very vulnerable population. I it just breaks your heart. You know, if they had to change administration and people in charge over there and put in oversight of different kinds of things. I think that the families are are happy with that. Then then then it's okay, I do. But as a governor, do you take that into consideration when the? Final. When the final report comes out. We know what happened there, we know who is culpable. Do you still take into consideration the families, and what they want or do you just say look, the the research and the investigation that we've done it needs to be shut down. Well, I think you know, it's not the facility it stop. It needs to be shut down. They need to weed out. All the terrible people that are creating and doing terrible things, and they have fake the more. We read about the situation over there. I mean, it was out of control. Right. And that's what that's what Doug Ducey said that he said, I want a new board of directors. I want a new CEO the facility itself does a good job in their hardworking people there, but the climate that was set by the board of directors and the CEO that has to be removed, but the facility will probably stay open. I I and I can agree with that. I can't. And if the families that are good with it. I mean, there's not a lot of at this level that can absorb all these people, you know, from my regulation recollection. It's just there's just not enough facilities either. I mean, I don't know where they would move maybe spread out all over the place. You know? Premise become their home. But some of those people have been there forever forever and the staff some of the good status them there. Forever. Former Arizona governor Jan brewer joins us. Go ahead. And and I understand that they're going to put in some oversight from and DCFS and regulations and licensing. So that's probably a good thing. Former Arizona governor former Arizona governor Jan brewer joins us MAC and Gaydos, political insider every Wednesday. What do you think about this story? Governor Joe Thomas who is Arizona's Education Association president. I think he's I think he's a total fool. God, isn't even know. It doesn't talk to teachers. He doesn't really know what the what the pulse of teachers in Arizona are thinking he came out and ran his mouth today that you know, what maybe there will be a second red red walkout over school funding. A he doesn't know what he's talking about. It never has a b he I think what do you think? It would look like if Joe Thomas was right here. Even though we know he's probably not how would ever second walkout is. How would a second Arezzo teacher walkout? Look. Well, I don't think it would look good. The bottom line is is that there's legislation in the legislature currently to address some of those issues, and then go down there, and they can testify, but the a then Dave our school organizations. My understanding is they haven't weighed in they we've made neutral, and as far as John Joe Thomas, you know, he's out there, you know, creating works for himself and the name, and I don't know if the teachers that are listening to him or not. But I think they should be awful careful about walking out moving our kids without teachers again, you know, they made they won that first battle, but they continue down that could be very detrimental for our schools and for our children and for the families, and there could be better next time around. All right, MAC and Gaydos, political insider and the former governor of Arizona, make sure you protect your plants governor trying to get cold outside. Take you. I will all right there.
