Arizona Chair of Elections Arrested for "Sexual Contact With a Minor"

Democrats claimed that Senator Tony Navarrete was the future of Arizona politics. They may have been right. Just not in the way they meant.

Arizona state Sen. Otoniel "Tony" Navarrete, a Phoenix Democrat, was arrested Thursday on suspicion of multiple counts of sexual conduct with a minor, Phoenix police said.

Navarrete was arrested near 27th Avenue and Bethany Home Road and booked into the Maricopa County Jail, police records show. In addition being booked on suspicion of four counts of sexual conduct with a minor, there are "other charges," police said, without elaborating. Police said they received a report of at least one alleged incident that happened in 2019.

Before this, Navarrete was making headlines for virtue-signaling about masking and urging everyone to "mask up". Now he's been unmasked.

is a community organizer with Promise Arizona and a Black Lives Matter supporter who claimed to be "passionate about justice".

His bio also describes him as the Chair of Elections.

Arizona Democrats have some major issues.
