New evidence that Project For Arizona’s Future is
the group behind the negative attacks on Munsil

Today, the Len Munsil for Governor campaign has filed a formal complaint with the Maricopa County Attorney’s office and with the Secretary of State concerning the involvement of Project For Arizona’s Future with the organizations that are launching negative and untruthful attacks against Len Munsil.

Governor Napolitano is directly linked to Project For Arizona’s Future (PAF) because she raised substantial money for the organization last spring. Most troubling, PAF has never disclosed any of their donors.

Evidence had been growing for quite some time about the inappropriate and potentially illegal connection between Ms. Napolitano, PAF and the untruthful attacks on Mr. Munsil.

Yesterday, it was discovered that the two individuals who started Arizona Values Coalition, Beau Memory and Seamus Perry, list Western Strategies as their employer. According to the Arizona Corporation Commission website, Thomas Ziemba, Executive Director for PAF is the individual who reserved the name Western Strategies. This establishes a clear link between PAF and the “independent” attacks on Mr. Munsil.

According to Vernon Parker, spokesman for the Munsil campaign, “Every time we discover a new piece of evidence, it points back to Ms. Napolitano and Project For Arizona’s Future. Ms. Napolitano must answer some important questions. Is she or are any of the agents of her campaign directly tied to PAF? Did she or any of the agents of her campaign know about the plans to attack Len Munsil with these “independent” groups? Why doesn’t she call on PAF to release their donor list? Why doesn’t she call on PAF to stop attacking Mr. Munsil with untruthful and negative attacks?”
