Russell's authored a bill known as SB1070 which has divided Arizona and has cost many jobs because of its controversy. It is thought that the this bill especially with it's timing, is what allowed Jan (i dont know what to say) Brewer to retain her seat as the defacto governor of Arizona.
Russell is now facing a recall drive by republicans to remove a republican. DeeDee Blase who is the founder of Somos Republicans http://somosrepublicans.com is at Pete's fish and chips on Mesa Drive and Main Street signing other Republicans to Recall Russell. Russell Pearce the Senate appropriations chairman for the State of Arizona.
Halina Reed who is also responsible for the recall drive mentions how volunteers can get involved to help rid the State of Arizona of this menace to society, Russell Pearce.
