New interview video from Dennis Gilman.
Information about the video as written by Dennis Gilman:
This video shows State Senator Russell Pearce endorsing JT Ready (AZ's most famous White Supremacist) in 2006 for Mesa City Council. The footage has never been seen by the public until now. It was given to Steve Lemons (Phoenix New Times) by an anonymous source. He gave me a copy.
It also shows Pearce deny knowing Ready in 2007 as well as an exclusive interview with JT Ready telling his side of the story. It's interesting.
According to Ready, they use to hang on his porch and tell Mexican jokes. I asked Ready if Pearce ever told him to "cool it" as JT Ready openly supports NSM and other white supremacist ideals. Ready stated that he never did but his wife, Lu Ann had as she was concerned of Russell's career.
Probably the most interesting thing is Ready explaining his relationship and role with Pearce's long-time political crusade against Mexicans. It's also important to note that while JT Ready seems to be telling the truth-I have no way of verifying everything he says. I will give him credit as so far he seems to show more integrity and honesty then Senator Pearce. Ready is not happy with Pearce's recent activities with Lobbyists, his public disapproval of the NSM march on Nov 13, 2010
and his repeated denial of their long time friendship and political alliance on the immigration issue.
Mr. Pearce should probably get honest real soon as the skeletons in his closet are messy and plenty and its time to take them out. I have more info and will be releasing it. If I were him, I'd come clean first. The people of Arizona deserve the truth.
Here is a factual time-line of Pearce's relationship with Ready:
2006: Russell Pearce is warned by the Bill Strauss of the ADL
of JT Ready's connections to white supremacists.
March 2007: JT Ready's neo-Nazi activities are
publicly exposed at an open legislative hearing,
reported on by the local media.
June 2007: Pearce and Ready work the crowd
together at an anti-immigrant rally at the
Arizona State Capitol.
