Arizona's Politics has reported multiple times on Senator-Turned-Lobbyist-Turned-Sherpa-Turned-Senator Jon Kyl (R-AZ) and his activities related to current Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. And, Arizona's Politics has questioned Kyl repeatedly for the details of his sherpa'ing and lobbying since President Trump took office. With that in mind, the calls today for Kyl to "recuse" himself from the nomination vote (if/when it takes place) caught our attention.
Arizona Republic columnist E.J. Montini made the case in detail.
Arizonans call Senator Jon Kyl and tell him he should recuse himself on the Kavanaugh vote. (202) 224-3121. He was the "Sherpa" for Kavanaugh.— Representative Daniel Hernandez Jr (@danielforaz) September 18, 2018
Now, Montini's and Hernandez's call for recusal might still make sense, but it is important that the bases for that call are made accurately.
