Jan Brewer: ‘I Misspoke’ About Beheadings

Jb In an interview with the AP published this morning, Jan Brewer finally concedes that she was wrong about a claim that headless bodies were turning up in the Arizona-Mexico desert.

From the AP piece:

"'That was an error, if I said that,' the Republican told The Associated Press on Friday. 'I misspoke, but you know, let me be clear, I am concerned about the border region because it continues to be reported in Mexico that there's a lot of violence going on and we don't want that going into Arizona.'"

"She said she was referring to beheadings and other cartel-related violence in Mexico in comments she made earlier this summer about decapitated bodies found in the state's southern region."

Guess she realized that she couldn't run away form the question forever.

AZ Gov. Jan ‘SB 1070’ Brewer says no future debates for her (plus a poll)

If you haven’t seen the video, you’ll get a chance after this:

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer is apparently done with participating in gubernatorial debates, because she is terrible at them. Per Jillian Rayfield at TPM:

Gov. Jan Brewer (R) has put the kibosh on all future debates with her Arizona gubernatorial opponent Terry Goddard (D), after her rather embarrassing display at Wednesday’s debate. “I don’t believe that things come out in proper context in an adversarial atmosphere,” she defended herself.

My follow-up question would have probably been, “What is the proper context for your statement, and I quote, ‘…'” in which the ellipsis represents twenty seconds of silent dumbfoundment, but that’s beside the point.

Here’s where you get to figure out the context: drunk, brain-fart, brain-dead or “overprepped”…

Watch: AZ Gov Jan Brewer Runs from Press After Demands She Recant Lies About Beheadings in the Desert


Following last night's gubernatorial debate in which she couldn't complete an opening statement, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer was confronted by the press over her false statements that beheadings were occurring in the desert.

After sidestepping the question in the debate, she does it again before running from a gaggle of press.


Remember, God tells her what to do these things.
