Democrats rarely face the consequences for their actions. It isn’t going their way this time.
But now a leading Democrat stuns all with disgraceful resignation.
Arizona Governor Katie Hobbs mysteriously stepped down on Wednesday afternoon, leaving the Treasurer, Kimberly Yee as acting governor.
The governor’s office did not release any information regarding the reasoning behind her stepping down.
Her spokesperson announced, however, that Hobbs was “under the weather” and would “return to her duties tomorrow.”
However, the strange occurrence leaves many people speculating as to other reasons why the governor might have stepped down.
The timing, at the very least, is certainly strange when you think about the events in Arizona over the past few weeks.
The Democratic governor has been extremely outspoken against Donald Trump, and her liberal policies are seemingly destroying the state.
Under her leadership, the state is facing a number of challenges, including a drought, a border crisis, and a growing homeless population.
In the meantime, Treasurer Kimberly Yee will serve as acting governor.
Yee is a Republican who was elected treasurer in 2018.
Yee has been a critic of Hobbs and other Democrats. She has also been a supporter of Trump.
Yee’s appointment as acting governor is likely to be controversial.
Some Democrats have accused her of being unqualified for the job. Others have expressed concern about her political views.
However, many Republicans are encouraged by the decisions, and are pleased with Yee and how she has handled her responsibility.
Yee announced that she would refrain from confirming the thirteen agencies that continue to have vacancies.
Yet, she did say, “I do hope when the Governor returns to Arizona, she will promptly name qualified directors to these important state agencies.”
She went on further to say, “I expect to see a quick resolution on this matter, so we can get the work done for Arizona taxpayers.”
Americans deserve stronger leadership than they often receive, but it is an encouragement that there are still strong leaders like Yee who will step up when the time calls for it.
Many Americans and specifically those from Arizona secretly hope that Hobbs’ absence will extend longer so that they can have more of Yee’s leadership.
