    Dear Sirs, my 97 year old Aunt, who has been politically active her entire life ( worked on local campaigns in NY, etc) now resides in Scottsdale. She lives at The Patrician ( an independent living facility.) She " thirsts" for political discussion, which her living facility doesn’t offer. Is there a way that someone can come to discuss politics with her? This is a woman who has participated in the Marches on washington, civil rights marches, etc. Always belonged to a political forum. She doesn’t drive any longer . Would someone volunteer to visit her to speak “politics?” She resides at "The Patrician, " in Scottsdale.Thanks for your time.

    Does anyone want to do this?Urgent Action Before Friday Vote of the Electoral College

    Folks, please take a few moments to read the below, and the actions we are suggesting won’t take more than 10-15m.

    Not sure if any of you saw this, but Lawrence Lessig, the Harvard Law professor who has partnered with the law firm Durie Tangri to offer free legal counsel to any Republican elector who chooses to not vote for Trump on the 19th, announced last night that 20 Electors thus far have contacted the firm about "voting their conscience” (i.e. writing in another Republican as opposed to voting for Trump). This is a hugely important development. Another Elector, Christopher Suprun of Texas, announced last week that he will not vote for Trump (and will instead write in John Kasich’s name). We just need 16 more Republican electors to deprive Trump of the 270 votes he needs to win, at which point the election would be decided by the House. Even if, in the end, the House selects Trump—and even if fewer than 37 electors end up changing their votes—it would be a serious blow to Trump’s “mandate” to have a significant block of electors vote against him.

    At the bottom of this email is a selective list of 40 Republican Electors, a number of whom have either indicated dissatisfaction with Trump or are from districts that voted for HRC. (If you’re feeling ambitious and want to contact more, a spreadsheet with all Electors’ information is here.) While it’s totally viable and appropriate for you to contact any of these Electors as a NY resident, if you can contact your family and friends in these states and ask them to also be in touch, it would be even better. (In the Facebook search bar, you can simply type in “my friends who live in [state or city]" to find friends in these states.)

    Here is a sample message (please feel free to tweak or personalize further) that can either be emailed, posted on the Elector-in-question’s Facebook page, or, where phone numbers are available, left on a voicemail. The key here is to take a respectful, realistic —asking a Republican Elector to change their votes to HRC is a potentially counterproductive exercise—and supportive tone. Remember, these people are risking not only their political careers but very possibly their safety by voting against Trump.

    I am contacting you to request that you join, if you haven’t already, the 20 Republican electors who are now strongly considering not voting for Donald Trump when the Electoral College meets next Monday. I realize you have been subjected to serious political pressure from the RNC—not to mention numerous threats to your well-being—and I understand how dramatically such a vote could affect your life. But as legal experts have pointed out, electors are constitutionally permitted to vote their conscience. I do not expect you to vote for Hillary Clinton, but I strongly believe that there are more reasonable Republicans who could handle the pressures and responsibilities of the Presidency whose names you could offer as alternatives should enough electors choose to do the same and send the election back to the House. I can promise you that this is not a partisan issue, nor an ideological one. Donald Trump has demonstrated, time and time again, that he lacks the experience, temperament, focus, and moral compass necessary to hold the most powerful position in the world. In addition, his refusal to disentangle his companies from foreign assets and debts is in violation of the Constitution’s Foreign Bribery Clause, and the CIA reported that Russia actively interfered in the presidential election.

    I love this country, and all that it stands for, and I am convinced—as are many Americans, Republican and Democrat alike—that Donald Trump has no respect for our democracy or for his fellow citizens. Please consider these words when you cast your vote on the 19th; the future of the country, I truly believe, is in the hands of you and your fellow electors. (In case you aren’t aware, there is an organization, The Elector’s Trust, offering free and confidential legal counsel to any Elector who is considering changing his or her vote. They can be reached here.)

    I am reaching out to inquire about any speaking engagements that your district has available for Scottsdale mayoral candidates and also to ask if you were planning on endorsing anyone for Scottsdale mayor this election.

    Thank you,

    I am trying to contact Scottsdale voters who are opposed to public corruption. I am seeking to raise awareness about the Good Citizen Rewards city charter amendment. It is patterned after the Federal False Claims Act. Can I meet with your group and give a short presentation? Can I send your group a publicity pamphlett entitled Why We Need Good Citizens Rewards in Scottsdale? Please advise.

    Good morning.

    My name is Will Graven.

    I am about to begin a recall effort against Mark Brnovich for public corruption.

    It is my intent to contact Ms. Rotellini, who ran against Brnovich, as you will know, to ask if she might direct me to some of her former staff, et al, as I seek assistance/support.

    And I am writing to ask you if you might be able to assist me, in some/any manner.

    Please allow me to explain why I am embarking upon this effort.

    I am the victim of fraud at the hands of several of my previous employees and related parties, and as a result, I lost several hundred million dollars.

    Assistant Chief of Special Investigations and Special Agent Dan Woods (and others) at the Arizona Attorney General’s Office conducted an over 4-year investigation, which has resulted (thus far) in nine people being indicted by an Arizona State Grand Jury on more than 50 felony charges (most defendants have pled guilty).

    As Assistant Chief Woods conducted his investigations, he uncovered evidence that the large and powerful law firm, Snell & Wilmer, had also engaged in criminal conduct. Rather than charge Snell & Wilmer, AG Mark Brnovich, Chief Deputy Mike Bailey, Criminal Division Chief Don Conrad, and Fraud and Special Prosecutions Chief Paul Ahler (whose son works at Snell & Wilmer) fired Assistant Chief Woods, three days before Christmas, for creating and providing to various parties a PowerPoint that proves Snell & Wilmer’s criminal culpability. The AG is now retaliating against me by closing down my cases (just as we are on the ½ yard line of the last several cases), and he is trying to remove me as the victim of my crimes.

    The entire PowerPoint is now available on YouTube despite the AG’s Office’s refusal to provide it pursuant to several lawful public records requests. Please, take some time to watch the PowerPoint with an open mind (it is lengthy), and help me put an end to the corruption that permeates the Arizona Attorney General’s Office.

    (please see, amongst other, the first few slides, and the last 10 slides, which are the recommended charges against Snell & Wilmer)

    Thanking you in advance for your time and consideration as to how you might help me…I look forward to hearing from you.


    Will Graven
