On Thursday, June 8, the House, including Arizona congressional representative Martha McSally, voted to kill the Dodd-Frank bill.
Voters in her district have been calling, tweeting, emailing, faxing and writing letters asking for her position on this legislation since April. Most Arizonans had no idea how she would vote since her office staff repeatedly told constituents she had no position.
That was a lie.
On May 30th, McSally gave a private, candid speech to the Arizona Bankers Association detailing her intent to repeal Dodd-Frank. Indivisible Southern Arizona obtained a recording of the speech, during which McSally speaks candidly on many subjects, including how the Trump administration is hurting Republicans' 2018 election hopes.
