When Russell Pearce was state senate president, he was called the de facto governor by some while others considered him to be the most powerful man in Arizona government.

But Pearce lost a recall election to Jerry Lewis and was out of office. Now Pearce is back in the news as Maricopa County Treasurer Hos Hoskins has offered him a job.

That’s made some people very unhappy, including Randy Parraz who led the successful effort to recall Pearce.
