Back Story: Looking back at a dark period in Arizona politics
If you’ve been following Arizona politics recently, you’re likely familiar with the saying, “You can’t make this stuff up.” But for those of us who’ve been around for a while, this is nothing new.
The Show asked Hank Stephenson of the Arizona Agenda to mine his mental archives and talk to some past newsmakers who recall both the highs and lows of recent Arizona political history.
We're calling this series Back Story and we began with AzScam, a sting that hit state lawmakers hard in the early 1990s, and Hank’s conversation with former lawmaker Debbie McCune-Davis.
Hank joined The Show to explain the series and why he wanted to talk about this particular low point in Arizona politics.
