Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar -- who called the cops on Apache Stronghold grandmothers who came to his US Capitol office -- sank to many new lows this week, even for Arizona politicians.

In a statement reeking of paternalism and white supremacy, Gosar claims Apache can't think for themselves and are controlled by outside interests. Gosar said, "Anti-mining opponents have sunk to a new low by using members of the Apache Tribe to further their misguided effort ..." 

Gosar's statement is too ridiculous and self-serving to post and give publicity to. This is how they spin, Arizona racist politicians harnessed by corporate interests and racist underbellies.
