Arizona Says It Will Pull Plug on LA's Electricity Over Boycott

Recommended Posts



Arizona is threatening to leave Los Angeles in the dark -- and its air conditioners without power -- if the city doesn't rescind its order to boycott the state over Arizona's tough new immigration law.

Cities across have vowed to boycott Arizona following the immigration bill.


"I feel like if you're going to boycott the candy store, you've got to leave all the candy alone," said Arizona Corporation Commissioner Gary Pierce. Arizona provides 25 percent of Los Angeles' power.


"I feel like Arizona is the candy store," he added.


Pierce made his challenge after the Los Angeles City Council's 13-1 vote earlier this month to boycott Arizona and Arizona-based businesses.


Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signed into law SB 1070 last month, empowering police in the state to stop people they suspect may be illegal immigrants and demand identification.


Los Angeles was among several California municipalities that have voted to boycott Arizona, including San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley, as well as Boston, Seattle and Austin, Texas.

The boycott is supposed to make Arizona think "Gee, maybe we fucked up with this lousy racial profiling/police state law" but apparently they are sticking to their big, loud, stupid guns.
