Democratic Attorney General Nominee Kris Mayes, running for the Arizona’s chief law enforcement officer, does not even support law enforcement.
One of her campaign PR consultants actually hates the police.
The Federalist reported,
Since the summer of 2020, social media posts show Stacey Champion, a Democratic political consultant who helps represent Mayes’ attorney general campaign to the press, deriding police as “racist” stormtroopers hellbent on killing black people.
“We live in a country where ‘law enforcement’ = killing black folks and arresting women who need to buy tampons,” Champion wrote on her personal Twitter account in response to one post alleging such an episode. “That pretty much sums it up.”
Another post in March of last year complained that “the FBI wants to protect racist cops.”
The post came in response to a podcast on FBI Director Christopher Wray refusing regular briefings on the Capitol riot, the same riot where bureau informants were reportedly involved. The extent of their involvement, however, has been concealed by the agency. FBI leadership has also colluded with the House Select Committee on Jan. 6 and refused to offer House Republicans the same materials presented to Democrats.
In a statement to The Federalist, Champion tried to distance herself from the campaign. Yet her own firm created Mayes’ campaign website, which directs “press inquiries” to Champion. Champion has also previously described herself as “all in” to elect Mayes.
“I am not a ‘campaign spokeswoman,’” Champion told The Federalist. “My tweets represent my personal opinions, not the opinion of anyone else, as can be seen in my bio.”
In October, Champion went after former Arizona Republican Senate candidate Justin Olson for his push back against left-wing demands to “defund the police.”
“Our police officers put their lives on the line every day to ensure our safety,” Olson wrote on Twitter. “Without them, our communities wouldn’t be safe.”
Champion then attacked him for being white, writing, “Spoken like a true white guy politician trying to drum up campaign contributions.”
Last August, Champion accused an off-duty police officer of being responsible for the death of a Boston woman who got separated from him on a nearby hiking trail. According to a local NBC affiliate, the death of 31-year-old tourist Angela Tramonte was determined to be caused by accidental heat exposure after she failed to return to the vehicle.
“The officer said Tramonte was supposed to meet him back at the car, but at 1 p.m. he called 911 because he couldn’t find her,” Arizona 12News reported.
“I do not believe that this cop isn’t culpable,” Champion claimed without evidence on Twitter.
Officers who defend themselves, meanwhile, are guilty in Champion’s eyes.
In May, Champion condemned an officer shooting of a man who allegedly lunged at police with a machete.
Another tweet reviled officers who fatally shot a man who “charged at them with a metal tool.”
While Champion roundly condemns police, one post suggested police should descend on white maskless people who were outdoors protesting pandemic restrictions in the summer of 2020.
“Where are the police in riot gear, tear gas & rubber bullets?!?” Champion asked in a tweet. “Nothing could be more dangerous than a white person refusing to wear a mask.”
Other posts from the Democrat attorney general campaign’s spokeswoman have emphasized “environmental racism” and demanded “climate action” in the name of “public health & BIPOC.” BIPOC is a popular left-wing acronym for “black, indigenous, and people of color.”
Despite Champion claiming she does not speak for the campaign, a quick look at Kris Mayes’ campaign finance reports shows that Champion is on the payroll as a PR consultant.
Remember when you told us you didn’t speak for the @krismayes campaign?
You are literally being paid to speak for the Kris Mayes campaign.
You both agree on defunding the police.
Arizona can agree that that’s an unacceptable position for an AG to hold. https://t.co/AtUc6lnWDX

Trump-Endorsed and Police-Endorsed Attorney General Nominee Abe Hamadeh told The Gateway Pundit,
Hamadeh: It has come to light that Kris Mayes’ chief campaign staffer hates police officers and has attacked law enforcement officials as racist killers – and it’s deeply troubling to me and every Arizona voter who expects their Attorney General to support the brave men and women who every single day put on a uniform to protect us and risk their lives – Kris Mayes must fire everyone on her team who hates cops like the top manager who said “law enforcement = killing black folks.”
Mayes is set to face off against Hamadeh in the November 8 general election.
Hamadeh is endorsed by the Phoenix Police Sergeants & Lieutenants Association, AZCOPS, the Arizona Fraternal Order of Police, and the Goodyear Police Officers Association.
President Trump previously said, “Abraham Hamadeh will restore LAW and ORDER to Arizona, and he has my Complete and Total Endorsement!”
The Arizona Fraternal Order of Police recently condemned the “Anti-police rhetoric of Kris Mayes” and reaffirmed their support for Abe. They also called on Mayes to fire Stacey Champion for falsely labeling the police racists and murderers.
The Arizona Fraternal Order of Police condemns Kris Mayes and calls on her to fire her campaign consultant Stacey Champion.
Democrats not only want to defund our police but they’ve demoralized them. Kris is unfit to serve as Attorney General. pic.twitter.com/zqRfHZAq8n
