PHOENIX -- The head of a Hispanic Republican group filed legal papers Thursday seeking to recall Senate President Russell Pearce.
The petition, filed by Dee Dee Blase, says Pearce should be ousted from his office because of his "overt disdain for the United States Constitution." It says that is "indicative of his inability to govern as prescribed."
The filing came just hours after state lawmakers introduced legislation designed to deny citizenship to children of illegal immigrants. While Pearce is not the prime sponsor of any of the measures, he has been the architect of the idea, both in Arizona and nationally.
