Latest On Blondie & The Bimbo

Ah yes, we need an update on this one. These ‘gal pals’ in Arizona pulled a fast one a number of months back. Governor Jan Brewer signed into law an anti-homeowner law which had been introduced twice in the Legislature, and had failed twice. So Representative Michelle Ugenti (no fan of homeowners rights) introduced it a third time. But the third attempt was as disgusting a move as you could expect from a well-recognized Bimbo.

It was introduced at 12:59 AM just as the Legislature was closing out it’s last day of the session. Even worse, the bill permitted HOA management companies (professionals at appearing in court) to represent Homeowners Associations whenever a homeowner tried to take a dispute into Small Claims Court. It was a maddeningly putrid move against all homeowners.

Longtime homeowners rights advocate George Staropoli filed a lawsuit. He pointed out that Arizona State Constitution law mandates that the contents of a bill must be reflected in its title. The purpose of the law is obvious. It’s to keep corrupt politicians from jamming corrupt legislation down the throats of citizens before anyone knows what’s it’s all about. In this case, the HOA secret was hidden inside a bill that pertained to state elections. Remember the line from a certain leader of Congress: “We have to pass the bill so we can all see what’s in it.” 

Well, George Staropoli was right. Most of Bimbo Ugenti’s law was struck down in court and Staropoli was awarded legal expenses.

But Staropoli went further: He asked that Ugenti be officially sanctioned for sneaking in a patently illegal special interest amendment which had failed twice before. His request was denied. So all you Bimbo watchers be forewarned: She’s gonna do it again!

    God Bless George, the man who saved Arizona homeowners, when he dismantled SB 1454. Now lets dig a little deeper into the story.

    Now Ugenti, the Bimbo, isn’t as smart as everyone thinks she is. You see, Rep. Warren “Bozo” Petersen, had a big hand in this fiasco, after all, he was the “author of the HOA Bill.” Plagiarist!

    When the media went to ask Ugenti for an interview on the bills passage, she passed the buck to the Bozo. In a seven minute news interview, on KPHO Phoenix, the clueless Bozo rambled, choked and even laughed about sex-offenders. Unbelievable!

    Shorty after the Bozo Show, Petersen, had his “personal attorney” threaten Reporter Heather Moore, and the news station (KPHO 5 Phoenix) with a lawsuit. No doubt a futile attempt to silence the media and violate their 1st amendment rights. Moron!

    Now many of us have written Rep. Phil Lovas, Chairman of the House Ethics Committee, asking for disciplinary action against the Bimbo and the Bozo. But there’s a big problem, Lovas sees no wrong and cannot find an ethics violation that is “worthy” of an investigation. What?

    Now, dirty little legislative tricks are a learned trait. Ugenti, AKA the Bimbo, had the master of teachers, Senator Gail Griffin. You see Griffin also attempted earlier on, to add the same failed HOA Bill to SB 2518, you guessed it, another “campaign finance bill” and another violation of the Arizona State Constitution. The Bimbo was just learning from Griffin, but this time, she got caught by George. Bam!

    Now, it’s kind of noteworthy, that all three of these stooges, just happen to be real-estate agents. Everyone had something to gain in this conspiracy, except for, you know who, the homeowners. The real-estate agents could now rent units to criminals, the HOA’s and property management company’s could sue their homeowners and file liens, thus putting the homeowner behind the 8 ball. Deals with the Devil and special interest groups are a very bad mix. Bastard Lobbyist!

    Now I’m sure you fine folks are wondering, where was the Mob….cough…hack…cough…I mean the CAI when all of this was going down? Well the CAI and the AACM decided to take a “neutral position” on the HOA Bill. Shocking! Well not really. Mobsters!

    Now lets see here, the CAI was organized to protect homeowners, and their rights. ROFL (Rolling on floor laughing) Remain neutral on a bill that screws homeowners? Brilliant idea! Who wants your HOA manager to have the ability to take you, the inexperienced homeowner to court, please raise your hands. Now who wants sex offenders, drug-dealers and convicted rapist in their crime free community, next-door to their children? Again a show of hands please. Thought so.

    Now, how can I say this… I am one of those alleged bad guys, I am an HOA Manager. There I said it! You see I’m suppose to be on their side. Whatever! In the words of Richard Nixon “I am not a crook.” I’m just one angry guy, who lives in an HOA and cannot just stand by and watch this injustice go down. Sinking-Ship!

    George is right, Ugenti needs to take her medicine, Lovas needs to step up to the plate and admit our Arizona, Lawless Legislators have violated not only House Ethics Rules, but the Arizona State Constitution.

    How you can help? Send Rep Lovas an email and let him know that the Bimbo, isn’t going to get a free pass for violating the Arizona State constitution. email! plovas@azleg.gov

    I’m sure my phone will be ringing off the hook again tomorrow. You see the CAI members and the Realtors stalk these websites. Every-time I make a post the calls begin. “Nazi-traitor.” Do you really think I care?

    I have a strange feeling, that George isn’t quite done with this.

    Dave,

    Thank you for the rest of the story! There is ALWAYS more to be told isn’t there? I had a feeling Ugenti was the puppet on the end of somebody’s string. Having worked on a bill I can assure you, details become embedded in your brain so talking about it comes naturally. She didn’t know details so she didn’t talk. Shame on her…she still needs to be booted out!

    Thanks for the contact information as well.

    Hats off to you and George! Arizona HOA members are so lucky to have the two of you on their side.
