The executive director of the Arizona GOP, Brett Mecum, 30, is embroiled in a bizarre criminal investigation where a woman has accused him of using the “Voter Vault” system to track her down in Phoenix. She is a young Republican and a former volunteer for John McCain.
The woman says that Mecum showed up uninvited at her Phoenix home and, when confronted, he told her that he asked a staffer to find her in the voter data base. The affidavit states
“I did not invite Brett Mecum. He is rather creepy and intimidating around women. I did not want to expose my guests to that kind of individual. I was shocked to see him show up at my party. He had never been to my house, and I had never told him where I lived. I asked him how he found my address, and he responded ‘I looked it up on Voter Vault, I called a staffer to look it up for me there.'”
He reportedly denies the allegations and says “This is completely bogus. At the end of the day, I will be exonerated in all of this. This happens a lot in politics, unfortunately. When you have a high-profile job like mine, you sometimes make some enemies.”
Mecum recently made national headlines after being clocked doing 109 mph down a street in a souped up blue 2008 Ford Shelby GT Mustang, here. The judge threw out the charge based on a view that the camera was unconstitutional, here.
